Journals- Keeping Your Memory

Looking back at everything you wrote in the past is exciting.  You can see how you have progressed in many aspects including grammar, handwriting, content, and opinions.  Also, journals can be your personal memory when you get older of your past experiences.

If you have ever read a journal/diary of others you understand that no matter what their life was like, it is interesting to read about.  Almost as interesting as the writer themselves finds it.  Keeping a journal will help you recall what happened that day or week and appreciate the events that occurred more.

You might have thought writing in a journal would bring a thrill.  it is actually a really hard habit to get into, and even harder if your of a younger age.  Just try it.  After a couple of weeks you'll already find fascination in what you have written.

What to write?  Some people don't think their day was interesting enough.  Here are some ideas:
Summary- Write about the events that took place that day and your thoughts on them.

Innovation- Write about the new idea you have to make something better.

Imagination- Write about a superhero or something.

People- Write about what your thoughts of certain people are.

How To Beat Any Video Game

Yes, it is true.  All those games have very similar patterns you can master.  Let's get right into it.

The first thing you need to know is the objective.  It could be finish the race, beat the level, or pop all of the balloons.  Hopefully, you know what you are trying to do.  Then, you need to set small goals to accomplish the objective.  These goals can be as big or small as you want.  Pass a car, jump over a wall, and kill an enemy whatever.  The idea is to set and accomplish these goals as quickly as you can.  You accomplish and reset them throughout the whole game until you have reached the objective.  Let's take a racing game for example:
Your objective is to take first in the race after three laps.

Your first goal might be pass a car, then maybe pass a turn, pass another car, avoid the spikes.  It is all pretty basic stuff that leads to the winning.

The second thing you need to know is the controls.  Learn and use all of the controls possible.  They make maneuvering and strategies a lot easier.  Then, learn the situations these controls are used and create solutions to the goals.  It really is that easy.  Let's take an adventure game for example:
Your controlls might be to jump and attack (pretty simple, but just an example)

You need to learn how to maybe double jump, or double attack, jump-attack.

If you master these two elements you shouldn't have any troubles beating the game.
