[S3E7] A Quick Vacation
In a quick little scene Melisandre reveals to Gendry his parentage, not a huge surprise as the audience had already figured this much out, but the portent "There is power in king's blood." may not bode well for Gendry, or anyone else with "king's blood".
[S3E7] A Quick Vacation
Hatori graduated from high school and eventually became a doctor, though he only worked as a personal doctor for the Sohma family. Two years before the start of the series, Hatori met Kana Sohma, who had been appointed as his assistant in his office. Hatori was initially indifferent towards her, but when Kana asked him what snow turned to once it melted, Hatori, thinking she was making fun of him, replied the most obvious answer: water. However, Kana imitated a buzzer and told him that spring is the correct answer. After this, Hatori was drawn to Kana's cheerfulness and described her as a spring that melted the "snow" of his heart. They thereafter quickly fell in love, though Hatori was hesitant to hold her in his arms and let her in into his heart because of his curse.
During spring the next year, Shigure brings Hatori, Tohru, Yuki, and Kyo to the Sohmas' lakeside house for a short vacation. Though Hatori deduces that Shigure wants to tease his editor, it is revealed that Shigure wants Hatori to move on from Kana, whose wedding to another man happened very recently. Ayame crashes the vacation the next day, and mentions Kana's wedding and claimed that Mayuko had given him pictures of the wedding. He then asked Hatori if he would like to view them but he declined his offer. This Ayame upset and he advises Hatori that he should not shoulder the burdens of his memories with Kana alone and be left behind while she moves on happily with her life. Shigure also expresses that he hopes that Hatori will find another woman who will make him happy like no other. Hatori thinks it sounds absurd, while the scene is cut to Mayuko gazing at the photo of herself and Kana at her wedding, with a photo of Hatori underneath.
During summer vacation, Shigure arranges for Hatori to meet with Kana's best friend, Mayuko, who had always secretly liked him. He visits her family's bookstore in order to retrieve a book Shigure ordered for him, and Mayu informs him that it will arrive the next day. The next day, Hatori visits again and Mayu quickly drags him out of the store along with her in order to avoid her mother's pestering about her love life.
After hearing about Shigure inviting Akito to the Sohma's beach house where Tohru and the younger Sohmas were already having fun, Hatori also arrives and reprimands Shigure for both wanting to stir up trouble and for troubling Mayu with his pranks. During the vacation, Hatori is only able to watch conflicts arise. Although he tries stand up to Akito and encourage her to give Kureno Sohma more freedom, he ultimately goes along with her orders. Hatori thus only makes sure that the Sohmas are fine and that Tohru is happy and not feeling lonely. When Tohru is injured by Akito, Hatori immediately runs in to treat her wounds. He feels guilty about not being able to protect Tohru and Momiji from Akito's wrath that night. Hatori later leaves the beach, along with Akito and Kureno, earlier than everyone else because of some urgent business back at the Sohma estate.
Towards the end of the series, Hatori has begun dating Mayuko and they are seen on a date in a restaurant. He invites her on an Okinawa vacation, and although she is ecstatic, she is a bit worried about how she will look in a swimsuit. Mayuko's worry about her figure makes Hatori laugh, which embarrasses Mayuko. After they are done eating, they comment on the beautiful weather, which reminds Hatori of the day when Tohru found out about his zodiac form.
We know that Scott McGillivray has a personal appreciation for the Ontario, Canada vacation towns where he and his crew film their hit HGTV show "Vacation House Rules," so it comes as no surprise that he and his team find pleasure in supporting the local communities. "We're here to support the local community, be balanced with what we do and be respectful about it and find affordable ways for people to have a slice of that dream, too, that other people get to live all the time," he explained to The Highlander, adding, "We're not a show that goes in and says, 'Let's tear this down and build something that's a 100,000-square-foot mega mansion.' Our show is way more grassroots than that."
Season 3 of "Vacation House Rules" premiered Friday, April 15, on HGTV. Scott McGillivray and his design partner, Debra Salmoni, are back for another season of vacation house remodels, which all follow McGillivray's tried-and-true set of rules. So what can viewers expect this time around?
Laurence Bradford 0:06Hey listeners. Welcome to the Learn to Code With Me podcast. I'm your host, Laurence Bradford. Before we get into today's episode, I just want to remind you that you can get the Show Notes for this episode in every other episode at learntocodewith.me/podcast. And if you enjoy the show, make sure to subscribe on whichever podcast player you listen on. And if you're feeling particularly generous, a review would be awesome too. Here's a quick word from our sponsors who helped make the show possible.
Michael Tombor 18:48So yeah, so I what really got me into doing it like really consistently every day is starting 100 the 100 days of code challenge. I do it on Twitter. So on there, he recommends at least an hour. So that's kind of the goal I shoot for. And I figure you know, as long as I'm consistent, that's the most important thing. So I tried to make a goal that I knew that I could do every day. If I said, like, five hours, I'd probably with my schedule, I'd probably burn out pretty quick. So I picked one to two hours, sometimes three, depending on how my day is going. And I started doing it routinely. And then once you start doing it routinely, it, you know, it stops becoming a chore and just becomes kind of part of your daily habit. And the community on hundred days of code is really great. You know, there's people from all over the world doing it, which is pretty cool. So I'd recommend anybody listening to just check that out. And you know, if you ever have any questions, feel free to reach out to me about like, you know, the rules. It's pretty, pretty laid back with hundred days of code. Like if you're on vacation or whatever, you can, you know, pause the challenge and you could resume it. It's not like you have to start from the beginning.
Laurence Bradford 21:59Yeah, yeah we had Alex yeah, Alexander Calloway on in season three, Episode Seven, we'll make sure to link to that. And he's the creator of 100 Days of Code. I know though there's folks that haven't listened to that interview, or they haven't heard of this yet. And they're just brand new to coding. Could you explain like, super quick what the concept of 100 Days of Code is?
Michael Tombor 22:20Yeah, absolutely. So 100 Days of Code. It's just like, a hashtag on Twitter. But there's also a website that kind of lists the rules. So pretty much all you do is you code all day, and then at the end of the day, you do a quick little write up of what you learned that day. And the act of writing it down, really helps to solidify some concepts that you went over that day, especially if they're really challenging, because it forces you to communicate what you learned to your followers. So that is one huge benefit from the challenge that I didn't even anticipate. And then the other thing is just, you know, you're you're dead. Kidding three months of your life to coding at least an hour every day. And it's just amazing looking back on all your tweets to see like what you've learned in that time. I definitely owe a lot of my knowledge and lots of, you know, lots of the new skills that I've picked up to doing this challenge.
Michael Tombor 25:37And then, you know, once you have your schedule set, you want to fill your time with quality. So I recommend you know, picking a quality program that already it's like a course so you don't have to waste time thinking about what to learn next. So it's great to start with Free Code Camp. I also really enjoyed the web dev web Dev Bootcamp by Cold Steel. If you pick something like that, when it's time to code, you can get right to it. You don't have to waste time, you know, what am I going to work on today. And then lastly, my last tip. It's called multiplying your time. And it's a little counterintuitive. But before I code, I want to prime my brain for learning. And yeah, helps you retain more information. So what you do is you want to release dopamine. And dopamine is actually a chemical in your brain that makes you feel happy and get your brain ready to learn. So before I sit down a code, I'll write some things that I'm grateful for that day, or journal about a positive experience, or I'll go for a short walk. And this actually releases dopamine in your brain. So you're ready to learn, you feel happy, and then you'll retain the knowledge better from your coding session. So those are just some quick tips to kind of like hack, hack coding and get more out of your time.
Laurence Bradford 26:58Oh, I love that. I have not heard the last one, but I want to recap them real quick. So you first mentioned personalized goals, setting like longer term goals, breaking them down into smaller goals. You also mentioned like staying balanced in there. The next thing you said was creating a schedule. And if someone doesn't feel like they have time to do a time audit. The next thing you mentioned was choosing a quality program or course you specifically mentioned Free Code Camp and then the web Dev Bootcamp I Cold Steel, which I believe is on Udemy.
Laurence Bradford 38:37Just a quick note before you go, if you're feeling inspired by Michael's story, and you want to follow in his footsteps, you can find the course he mentioned the web developer bootcamp at learntocodewith.me/webdev.
