I LOVE TIMESKIPS

I LOVE TIMESKIPS


 An essential element of storytelling is using the passage of time well. Timeskips, for those who don’t know is a literary device that advances the timeline of the story ex number of years that usually show older versions of the protagonists.


 The reason I love timeskips so much is for, the simple of idea of growth. You ride with these characters for a lengthy amount of episodes and then you get to see a dramatic change and it makes it feel like as if you’ve grown up with them.

 The most perfect example is in NARUTO. When the first series started to air on Cartoon Network and when I first read it in Shonen Jump,  I was roughly the same age as Naruto.

 When the timeskip happened in the next series I was also around his age which made it literally feel like I was growing up with them.

 But timeskips is a heavy discussion topic for today because I’ve been watching GINTAMA and they just had a timeskip. A weak and supporting character named Shinpachi just received massive growth due to the time skip.


 He was always super serious, couldn’t really hold his own in a fight, and was far from cool. But since the first time he was shown in the timeskip he possessed the same poise as the series’ main protagonist (Gintoki). His growth is making me more invested in the story because it is always amazing to see the weak go to strong.

 If you’re a storyteller yourself think about the usage of timeskips, when done correctly it is one of the biggest payoffs in storytelling.

NEIGHBORHOOD HOT

NEIGHBORHOOD HOT

 Often times people make moves when things are “perfect” at the time. Everything looks good but no thorough inspection is given. It’s like moving into a neighborhood in the winter.


 As the old saying goes “you never know a neighborhood until it’s the summertime”. When the summer come around the heat brings the people out and allows the true essence of the neighborhood to show.

 When the heat of life pressures us we are forced to come out “winter bubble” and face the summertime madness. We face the summertime madness by emerging from our “perfect” comfortable position and make a calculated decision by facing the uncomfortable heat. Only then will we know what we’re truly made of.

HIGHLIGHTERS SAVED MY LIFE

HIGHLIGHTERS SAVED MY LIFE

 Its finals time for school and that means even more reading and studying than the ungodly amount already required. During these periods I’ve been using a highlighter a whole lot. Now previously before the law school experience it was rare I used a highlighter but now I keep one with me like its a strap lmao. It then hit me that highlighters really are the saving to grace to understanding and learning.

 I use the highlighters to make an emphasis on ideas that sticks out to me and it makes recalling the information very easy because it jumps right out the page.

 I also use highlighters a lot when I read my bible, so if I’m just freelancing through the book, I can just read the standout verses I like to read everyday.

 Highlighters should be propped up more in society as they are a tool for the brain that makes organization a breeze. So what are you waiting for? Start highlighting today.

TO GIVE IT A CHANCE

 TO GIVE IT A CHANCE




 Much of my life I’ve been picky about the things I like. Whether its food or music or clothing, I stuck to what I really liked and that was it. But as we grow so do our interests and this is ok. New times can often change perspective.

 I thought about this when I seen a poster for the upcoming GUNDAM movie. First thought..”Boy this is going to be trash”. Then I thought “Wait..I thought the same thing of the Transformers movies (first one was good the rest was garbage)” and I loved the first Transformers but I hated the cartoons and I don’t really have a thing for robots.

 If we don’t at least give some things a chance then we will never really know if we don’t like it. Now some things don’t have to be tried but as far extracurriculars/interests a second look can always payoff rather than just writing something off because it isn’t immediately peaking interest.

 New technology would never be able to thrive if things weren’t given a chance. Like voice is about to become a big staple in our culture. It sounds uninteresting now because that aren’t what we’re used to but we weren’t used to supercomputers just hanging in our pockets either. So what have you written off lately? It may time to revisit that thing and give it a chance for once.
