Lesson 2 – Lecture Notes

Academy~Lesson Two Notes

In lesson two, the students were introduced to the application process.

The application is the form you will need to fill out to apply for ASF. This form will be read and approved by the Hokage so we want it to be perfect, or almost perfect. 😉

This form can be found in the Hokage’s diary but feel free to PM Konan anytime.
*Note: Current ASF members do not need to re-fill it out, but if their character information is not on the website send it to Diep

In the application for OCs (original characters), there are a few vocabulary words  and important things which needs to be addressed.

Two important things on the OC application are the terms specific characteristics and personality. They may seem very similar but they are different. Specific Characteristics are unique and defining features of a character. On the other hand, personality are more general and generic.

Another thing to watch out for, is spelling. Make sure important terms like Konoha, Uchiha, Uzumaki, etc. are spelled correctly. Proper grammar throughout the application is also an important factor.
*Note: there is a post in the Hokage’s diary titled “Reasons your O.C Application might have been passed over” for more information.

Onto the Naruto Character application. A Naruto Character needs to have legit cosplay with their LP avatar (if you do not have LP yet, do not worry about this) If you have any questions about the outfits, feel free to contact Diep, Naruto and Konan. The face is also an important part of this. It is recommended to make a new avatar for cosplaying, however you may choose to go to the face shop for existing LP avatars. Please check with the admins (Naruto, Diep, and Konan).

The next part of the Naruto Character application will be to post a picture of your avatar along side of the Naruto character that you’re cosplaying. Attach a description of the character as if you were in their shoes.

(For more information, ask Diep, Konan, or Naruto and visit Naruto’s Diary)

Any questions? Feel free to ask Diep or Konan.

Lesson 1 – Lecture Notes

Academy~Lesson One Notes

In lesson one, students were introduced to the Academy.

The Academy takes place on three different platforms. They are LinePlay, kik, and Chatzy. (For more info on Chatzy, talk to Diep)

Here is the link to the Chatzy lecture hall. The calendar will note when the lesson or workshop will be held on Chatzy.

There is also a strike system in place. Three strikes and you’re out. A strike will be given for bad behavior and anything related to that. However, you can also redeem yourself through repetitive good behavior.

There are also field trips that are given to students who earn the privilege. Field trips will be led by Diep or Konan and the student(s) will be able to roleplay with the main crew.

Any questions? Feel free to ask Diep or Konan.

Workshop 1 – Lecture Notes

An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship.

Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.

– Goi Nasu

Workshop 1 defines the sources and types of negativity you face and provide tips and ways to deal with it. The workshop might be more on the common sense side, but it’s always a nice reminder to be aware of it. Below is the cliff note version of the lecture.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

There are two types of negativity: an external source and an internal source.

External source of negativity can be factors such as family, friends, school, work, etc.
Internal source of negativity stems from the clash of conflict between your desires and your needs.

So here’s the thing, external sources of negativity is categorized into two things. Things you can change and things you cannot change. For the things you can change, it’s all about whether you have the will to make it happen. This of course, is easier said than done and will take a bit of strength and courage to do so. Once you’ve decided that you can change things, all that is left to do is carry it out. For the things you cannot change, you either have to figure out a way to incorporate it into your life, or get rid of the toxic issue. This is a bit hard to swallow when the things you cannot change affect you deeply. It’s a skill that takes a while to develop, but there will be a day that you’ll recognize the difference between the two and decide on a course of action to take. Try to keep a positive outlook on life and you’ll surely figure it out.

Since internal sources of negativity are a conflict between what you want and what you have, this is a bit more of a challenge. A tip to dealing with internal struggles is to completely allow yourself to feel the emotion that you’re feeling. If you want to scream, scream. If you want to cry, sob your hear out. If you want to harm others, you should rethink that and find an alternative to that. Perhaps a stress ball.

But there’s a catch to allowing yourself to experience these emotions fully. You can be stuck in an emotional limbo where these feelings overtake and consume the majority of your thoughts and time. To avoid this pitfall, you can recall the better times rather than the bad, put a specific date you’ll stop excessively thinking about the problem/issue, or talk to someone else about how you’re feeling. Once someone else knows about your feelings, there’s a slight lift of burden. They can also become a source of strength for you to overcome this adversity.

If you take away anything from this workshop, know that you do not have to face this alone. There’s always someone out there willing to be a pal and listen to you ranging from your family, friends, significant other, or a stranger.

Never be scared to reach out for help.
