“It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.”
Like when your boyfriend of five years breaks up with you, just when everyone you know is getting married or engaged. I mean come on, if I had a dollar for all the engagement notifications on my Facebook timeline…let’s just say I’d never have to budget my otome/otoge spending ever again…
It’s like the universe has a series of checks and balances that always manages to produce the worst possible outcome at the worst possible time…eerie! So lets make the best of a crappy situation…
So recently I’ve been having a strong bout of childhood nostalgia. Maybe it has something to do with my graduation date looming menacingly on the horizon…or maybe it’s my inner adult trying desperately to win against my dogged reluctance to admit I am an adult (if that makes sense?)
Nothing hits me in the childhood like Pokemon…as you can no doubt tell I LOVE Pokemon. Pokemon Crystal was my first game ever. I still remember unwrapping my brand new Electric Purple Gameboy Color, bright and early on that rainy Christmas morning, that seems like a lifetime ago. I’m grinning as I write this, it was such a momentous occasion back then, definitely on par with opening a PS4/ Xbox One. Then I remember turning to the slightly smaller box, the excitement and anticipation raised to a fever pitch as my small shaking fingers unwrapped the game that sparked my love of games: Pokemon Crystal.
Unlike most of my peers, I didn’t start my Pokemon journey in Kanto, no I started in Johto. It wasn’t until a few years later that I discovered Red, Blue, and Yellow version. But in that moment I didn’t care that there was a First generation, I was too busy falling in love with the beauty and splendor that was Johto.
Like all full-time students I am confident enough to say that I know the value of the dollar. Sometimes money just doesn’t stretch the entire month; between rent, food, bills, food, metro fare, food, books, tuition, and did I mention FOOD money seems to disappear at an alarming rate. But my pitiful part-time retail slave paycheck still allows me some pleasures. And by pleasures I mean paying for the company of sexy 2D pixel men, thanks to the wonderful world of mobile otome games. But, with so many options, which ones are best?
I must have an impulse problem or something, because I bought both Nameless and Dandelion Wishes Brought to You at the same time which cost me $50 all together. To be honest after playing Jisoo’s Route in Dandelion—I don’t how to feel about the game.
So this semester the professors have turned it up to 11 with the amount of work they want! One professor has assigned THREE papers within a week of each other and they are all due sometime at the end of the month!
I mean come on, can I finish the first paper BEFORE you give me another one?!? And that’s just one class! I’m taking four (for grad school that’s a lot).
Then there is work..Let’s not get started on the personal hell that place is, but it pays the rent and supports my habit…so that is an inevitability…
So where am I going with this?
Nowhere really…I just wanted to rant! But I suppose if I had to come up with something on the pop fly, it would be that:
I may be slow about posting for a little bit, at least until I get my assignments started. In the event that I do post something there is a strong possibility that I will be procrastinating on some paper or another or clearing out my drafts.
