I’ve been missing. Where have I been? Well. We have been moving into a larger apartment (my clothes need space), so that actually has been rather time consuming. Mostly, it’s Pokemon GO though. I spend hours wandering around in search of Pikachus and Charmanders. While reviews have been a rather mixed bag (nerds are catty AF), I really enjoy it.
When it initially launched it was pretty bad. Not the game itself, but Niantic’s servers. Hot damn. I’m sure their servers consisted of a garden gnome running on a hamster wheel. At least, that’s what it seemed like. A lot has improved though; it rarely crashes, stays pretty fast, and they’re constantly on top of bugs (bye-bye footprint radar). Most importantly, it’s bringing people together.
I am Team Mystic. It really is the best team, but I won’t judge you too harshly for siding with other teams. I’ll try anyway. With the choosing of a team, you’re practically inducted into a weird little family. People you’ve never seen before will hug you, cheer all your gym victories, and maybe even buy you a drink. This little phone game has ripped gamers and nerds off their couches, thrown them into the real world, and equipped them with a common interest for conversation. As a funny meme pointed out; Pokemon GO has done more for childhood obesity in one week, than Michelle Obama has done in eight years. It’s true. Even my vampiric little body has something akin to a tan.
So…yeah. That’s where I’ve been. Excuse me, I have to evolve this Clefairy.
