I Know Alone

Lately I've been distant. And I'm okay with it?

There is a part of me that says "Acknowledge me!" and another part of me says "Shut the fuck up!" It goes both ways.

"Shut the fuck up!" is my reaction to certain people who I cringe at when they message me, or people who I just simply don't vibe with because they don't really seem to hold a conversation pretty well.

"Acknowledge me!" is just the useless part of me trying to socialize with people I wanna be friends with but they're giving me the "Shut the fuck up!" treatment, which sometimes I don't blame them for. People have lives and all but not when you're online and posting shit. I don't know. I blocked several people who gave me that treatment.

I'm fine with that. Fuck 'em. Fuck 'em.

I know alone like no one else does.

Video Game Thoughts - Pokémon Power

With a Nintendo product, a huge requirement for it to be actually worth buying is a Pokémon game. At least, that's how I see it. Maybe that's why the Wii U failed as a console and not the 29 other reasons. Had Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon been released on the Wii U instead of the 3DS again and maybe we'd still have better memories of the said tablet-tainted console

It was either Pokémon Sword or Shield. I bought Pokémon Shield because my friend convinced me in the stupidest way possible. We were at a GameStop when an attractive blonde woman was buying a new Switch and a Pokémon game. My friend was looking for games and we were in line so I might as well. 

Gamestop Employee: What can I get you?
RalphPokémon Shield please! Pretty lady buy Shield! Me want Shield!

That's exactly how it happened.

So far, the game has been easier than expected. There's a system that shares experience points with all the Pokémon in your team, which made the game easier. At some point, I felt like my Pokémon were too strong, around 8 levels higher than most of my opponents'. Basically, every time I got challenged by someone, I'd just be fighting for easy money with my team basically saying, "oh you don't know what you're in for, kiddo."
