I have been participating for a while now. I just think that there are many benefits while doing so. I don’t have to deal with having a girlfriend and the problems that occur in a relationship. I don’t have to worry about someone getting jealous. I save money and time while still having fun. I’m […]

It sucks being in a relationship and having to put your into this one freaking person, which can be hazardous. As time pass in the relationship , you gain surety and security, well you think . And then you start telling more and more and you’re opening up your book of life to this person . Then you have to deal with that person either continuing to read the book or just leaving it open for someone else to read. Have a good day!

Benjamin Hager Las Vegas Review-Journal Valley wrestling coach Tyler Perry was once told it’s near impossible to win at the school. But upon scanning the brick walls inside the school’s archaic gym, he noticed several wrestling banners and that the Vikings won five consecutive state championships from 1971 to 1975. The school had 22 individual state champions during the 1970s. “There is some history and tradition here,” Perry said. “There’s been winning done here, and it can be done here (again). You just got to change the culture a little bit.” After spending his first two years as coach of the Vikings at the Class 4A level, Perry said he thinks his wrestlers are ready to re-establish a winning tradition and make a run in Class 3A behind a roster loaded with experience and talent. “We’ve got guys competing and trying to tear each other’s heads off every day and then high-fiving afterward enjoying it,” Perry said. “And that’s something we haven’t had before. We’re at a point the kids have confidence in the system and the work they put in, and I hope we continue to get better.” Getting better has meant pitting his wrestlers against top-notch programs during an early-season schedule that included a trip to the Charger Duals at Clark and a visit to perennial powerhouse Green Valley in late November. “I’ve got the utmost respect for (Perry),” said Green Valley coach Jon Ferry, who led the Gators to six straight Class 4A state titles from 2012 to 2017. “I know he puts the time in. You have to be the right guy for the job, and I think he is over there. He’s got the right background and mentality to put that team on the map.” Rather than his room being divided by individuals looking for self-gratifying glory, Perry said the Vikings have finally built camaraderie and help one another daily. He counts on several wrestlers to step up as leaders, including junior John Baloyot and senior Xzavier Maheia, who have been with the coach since his first day in charge. “Last year I was doing wrestling because it got my mind off things,” said Maheia, whose stepbrother, Kishawn Washington, was killed in a North Las Vegas shooting in January 2016. “Now I’m wrestling because it seems like a future for me. I’d rather stick with it for those reasons instead of the negative reasons that were holding me here.” Baloyot, 25-0 this season, has emerged as a legitimate threat in the 220-pound class. “The mindset has always been pushing yourself to the limit,” Baloyot said. “I think of it as life. Life is hard, life is rough, but you have to come out somehow. You just have to get your mindset right, you’ve got to expect to win.” That’s what Perry is hoping to see when the postseason rolls around. “We’re hoping by the time we get there we’re gonna be pretty battle-tested and essentially we’re gonna be ready for anything that comes our way,” Perry said. “We’ve emphasized we plan on going and winning some state hardware in 3A this year.”

The paragon archetype transcends boundaries. Superman is the perfect example of a superhero that depicts these characteristics. Superman is a well known superhero and people look to him for inspiration. This is exactly what the character was meant to be and nowhere near how he is depicted in Man of Steel by Zach Snyder.

The heroine archetype bridges boundaries. In the animated movie we watched in class, Diana bridges her society with the outside world when she takes Steve Trevor back to his society. Wonder woman in this animated film also bridges the world of mythological creatures with the world that we know.

Batman is arguably one of the most well known superheros in today’s times. While most people think of Christian Bale when they think of Batman, they should think of the qualities that Batman is supposed to display. As a detective archetype, batman restores boundaries. In the comic read in class, Batman embodies this idea.

Besides being a comical movie, Ant-man embodies the qualities of a vigilante who crosses boundaries. From the beginning of the movie, Scott is labeled as a criminal by society. He was imprisoned for doing something that was against the law but he believed was the right thing to do at the time.

I have seen the movie Captain America: The First Avenger countless amounts of times prior to this course. After further analysis, I am able to understand why Steve Rodgers fits the War Hero archetype. He consistently protects those who cannot protect themselves. This is why Captain America will always be considered one of the greatest […]

I remember when i first saw the movie The Lone Ranger. However, at the time, I did not take into account the qualities of a frontiersman that John Reid embodies. He is the perfect example of straddling the boundaries of two worlds. He straddles the world of the undead and the living.
