Not doing great with daily posts, but doing alright with posting on a regular basis so it’s kind of a wash. Also chipping away at the big master review list. Mostly when I can’t sleep. Also got my new phone finally working! Turns out to have been a stupid bureaucracy mix-up on the service provider end of things. That I may have actually caused. So now I can play Pokemon Go to my hearts content. Not that I actually like the game that much. It has almost no actual gameplay, or story, and what little game is there is mostly just Pavlovian addiction stuff. Not that those bits are all that out of place for a Pokemon game mind you, but still. Also I’ve only ever really played the first Pokemon game, so can’t really comment on where the games have gone since then. Mostly I’m using it as a hack for my brain. One of the reasons I suck at exercise is that I just can’t handle just going out and walking around for no real purpose. Same with just getting outside. I need a reason, like walking to the train station to go into Boston once a week, things like that. Which Pokemon Go provides quite well, so time to see if I can leverage the addictive non-game to exercise and get happier and healthier.
Until then, let’s fulfill values through friendship and ponies.
