Pokemon Propitiation: Day 22

It’s been nearly a month since my last entry. After years of putting it off, it seems that life has gotten in the way of my finally enjoying Pokemon. I fear the worst.

But with that attitude, I’ll never be the very best. No, I must endure. See, my family and I are moving away. This would be a pretty big deal on its own, but I’ve also started a new job, and between that and our move being a few hours south, free time is at a premium. Free time at home, even more so. It seems that perhaps it is time to execute Plan B. As much as I’m enjoying playing Pokemon on my Retron 5, maybe I’m approaching things the wrong way.

Welcome back, my old friend.
Welcome back, my old friend.

Game Boy Advance SP to the rescue. Since I’m going to be away from home, this is the perfect time to start playing Pokemon the way it was intended. Yes, this setback will not beat me, it will only stand to make my pokexperience that much more pure. And isn’t that what it’s all about? The quest for purity? (Bet you weren’t expecting a State and Main reference today, were you?)

I think the most important thing to take away from all of this is that I actually want to play Pokemon. I haven’t been intentionally avoiding it, I simply haven’t had the time. My first major hurdle has been overcome. I have the desire. Now, I must make it happen.

Hopefully my next entry will have more substance.
