My left knee is kind of messed up from popping. Probably from hitting since I have less control over it than my right and I end up hitting crazy hard each time. Anyways,
Body control is beautiful right now.
Waves are always on point.
Boogaloo is getting better but still working on it.
Still working on perfecting the four main types of popping/hitting I do.
Creativity is key. Freestyling is my main focus.
I don’t like girls who go to events and just try to look cute and shit.
I don’t mind it if they’re there to support their friends or something along those lines but going solely for the purpose of trying to get attention irritates me. If a girl is really into the scene, cool but otherwise, they need to find somewhere else to hang out. I especially hate it when girls try to dress “like a bgirl,” whatever their definition of that is. You know, tshirt and sweats, vans or converse, maybe a beanie or a hat and take pictures all night so they can tell everyone on facebook that they had fun sessioning at the event and whatnot. They stray away from cyphers and any situations where they might have to get involved. I may dress nice or whatever but it’s a personal choice. I’m always like that and I’m actually immersed in the whole hip hop community here in Hawaii. I go to be inspired, to be entertained and to support my best friends and crew members. And I’m always ready to dance if someone asks me to pop or an all styles cypher starts. My heels don’t stop me. I don’t care if you’re just getting into the bboy/bgirl/dancing scene or if you’re just curious but don’t come all dolled up if you’re just looking for someone to give you attention. Events aren’t the place for it.
I don’t like seeing people waste their talent and potential.
They’re pissing away all these gifts because they’re scared of what might be. People would kill for your abilities and you don’t even bother to use them to their fullest extent or even use them at all? Waste.
Not trying is worse than attempting something and having bad results.
If you try, good things may come. As long as you try, you’ll be better for it no matter the outcome. At least you’ll gain experience, knowledge, tips etc. Not trying will only weigh heavy on you as you stay completely the same.
"What ifs" are the worst. You get over embarassing things eventually. You learn to laugh at your mistakes. You look back and poke fun, saying "At least I had fun." "What ifs" will always remain. You can’t grow from them. You don’t get over it because you will always wonder "what if?"
I would rather have fun, feel stupid and then laugh than question what could have, would have or even should have happened.
Don’t be afraid to put yourself and your talent out there.
You never know who’s watching or what’s waiting to happen.
After I left my house and all the unnecessary drama.
Whitney and Christian came to pick me up and we headed to scoop Erika up from work. Then off to Travis’ house. Ended up sessioning for a few hours, chillin’ and jamming with these random guys. The moment I stepped into Whit’s car, I realized that that was how my day should have gone from the start. Some shit went down at the party but we took care of it. Travis and I were gonna play Monopoly after we finished dancing but he threw away the cards on accident. So I just ended up curled up on his new bed, talking about ghosts and freaking out when he tried to scare me.
One thing really made me smile, there were these people I didn’t know and my friend Chris is buzzed and calls me over to dance for them. I guess they’ve seen me somewhere so they’re all whispering to each other “Oh, she’s fucking good, you know.” I love it when stuff like that happens. It gives me a boost of self esteem.
I love being around chill people who know how to have a good time.
On a more serious note, the crew was asked for backup at an upcoming event by one of our good friends who has an exhibition. There are talks of his opponent and his crew calling him out afterwards so just kind of miffed at the other guy. Pretty pathetic, to be honest. We’ll be ready though.
