I feel like it’s super important to find ways to reconnect with your past. Be it through childish things you used to do or looking through old photographs. Our history is important, plus you’ll often start enjoying whatever it was again or at least thinking of it fondly. I’m totally not just saying this because I spent the whole night playing pokemon on a first generation nintendo ds, honestly. In my defence Pokemon is insanely addicting and was one of my favourite games growing up! I’ve done so many run throughs of Leaf Green it’s ridiculous.
I know a lot of people will be all like Fire Red was the better version of the two! Nah, while growlithe may be great I much prefer the vulpix/ninetales of green. Also abra instead of ekans, cause i mean psychic op. I feel like people would also disagree with my choice of starter, Bulbasaur. That’s right, not the overly hyped Charmander or the second place Squirtle, but Bulbasaur the apparently least popular of the three. Not only is grass wonderful *wink* but you also plow through every rock, water, and ground gym with the bare minimum of effort.
Did you know the Director of the game Junichi Masuda talked about why Bulbasaur is the very first pokemon in the pokedex? He said that bulbasaur was adorable and “It really kind of exemplifies what Pokémon is for me. It has that kind of monster-like creature, with a plant-like thing on its back—and I think that that simple combination exemplifies what Pokémon is all about.” Haha! Take that non-believers!
I know my posts are often a lot less frivolous than this but come on, I spent all of my time playing pokemon instead of brainstorming/researching for a post. So the very fact that i’m maintaining my daily post promise to myself is enough right? I’m somewhat bad at keeping myself doing things that don’t have someone reminding me of my deadlines. I’ll be like ‘oh it’s fine if I miss just one day’ and then that’ll happen over and over again until it’s been a week since I last did whatever I had been doing, it’s not a very good habit to have but luckily this seems to be helping me kick it.
Well I know this has been a much shorter post than I often do but I can’t think of much else right now, I mean I already told you to reconnect with yourself. Reconnect with your childhood, what are you waiting for? Why are you still reading this? Like seriously? Go play some childhood games or something, talk to an old friend. Go on, shoo. I mean I still love you so stay if you’d like I guess, I don’t control you. But personally i’ve got a legendary to catch!
Peace, love, and tranquil vibes,
