About Reading Between
Simply put, I’ve started up Reading Between to analyze stories, and acknowledge the little theological, psychological, symbolic, literary, cinematic, etc., factors that add to the value of a story.
Of course, that being said, there will be a lot of different content on the Reading Between. There’s countdowns and top fives, some statistical analyses, several reviews, and simply personal thoughts on trends I’ve seen in stories in general. Regardless of the specific type of writing, however, I just aim to better appreciate the stories I write about, and share that appreciation with others!
Reading Between, as you might guess, is named with this goal in mind. Reading Between the Lines, the Pages, sounded just a bit too cliché, a bit too specific, so instead, I just decided to go with Reading Between. The whole goal then, is to read between the basics of what an anime, game, or manga presents to the audience, and find any deeper meaning that the story has to offer. Whether that’s thematic, psychological, theological, or simply emotional, there’s a lot to delve into, and I hope to do just that!

As far as who I am, I’m just a college student studying Psychology and Theology, someone who cares very much about the nature of human experiences. I love getting to share my experiences of stories, and furthermore, enjoy hearing about the stories that mean something to others. A major part of my philosophy in enjoying stories, is that any story, as long as it’s meaningful to someone, has value, and searching for that value is something that I feel is very important.
That said, I am also writing in this blog as a means of self-discovery. I know that I care about these human experiences, and have an interest in analyzing these stories that mean so much to me, but beyond that, there’s still a lot I have left to learn. I have yet to establish who I am in many ways, and through writing this blog, refining how I write, what I write about, and more, I hope to learn just a bit more about myself. It’s a constant journey, ya feel?
