    It's interesting. According to google "The thin, moist lining of your inner eye, called the conjunctiva, prevents a lost lens". I still wouldn't put on contacts. Sometimes I all asleep on a whim, so I would risk infection. This avatar couldn't be more fitting, honestly.

    I don't know what I'll do for a gift this year. I'll figure something out. I'm currently playing Daily Chess with roni. You log on periodically and take your turn. There's no time limit and games can last from weeks to months. Neither person needs to be active at the same time. It's very fun. I'm glad you speak so fondly of FF14. I don't necessarily enjoy the Final Fantasy series that much, but I keep playing them. I don't know why. I don't know anything about 14.

    Are you going Christmas shopping this year? I'll be doing it tomorrow. If I don't find what I need in the stores, I'll do the rest online.

    Oh. Someone gave me a Palkia today while I was trading randomly. Another person gave me a Squritle. And another person gave me a Dragonite. It was a very lucky day for me. I had an extra Jirachi, so I traded that away. I'm at Victory Road. I got lost and ended up back at the start. I also ran out of repels.

    I can't even imagine how people can fall asleep with contacts in. I have a huge phobia of them slipping behind my eye or something, and even thinking about it a little is enough to make me cringe. oof. And I had no idea there were classes, that's interesting!!

    A game?! Wow!! That's some dedication even if it didn't work out.. I have never tried that. :O Congrats on the gift too, seems like you're going to enjoy it a lot. \o/ It's so nice to see how dedicated to chess you are ~

    Aus is very similar to America I think, there are rural, urban, and suburban areas, etc. I live in the city and it feels very similar to being in a US city, except people have different accents lol. Would never want to live in a desert-y area, I would be scared of dangerous animals ;__;

    Haven't finished yet, I still need to beat Volkner. FFXIV released a new expansion recently which has been taking up all my time ;w; hooray for catching Dialga!

    I never noticed the feeling on my nose. I notice every tiny smudge and it gets annoying trying to always clean them. Did you know in some places it's required to take a class to put in contacts? My sister took it. I do know that it can cause infection if you fall asleep with them in your eye. After my surgery, I had to wear an eye patch.

    I decided to sign up. It's understandable, motivation is a big deal and it's better to sit it out if you feel like it'll be forced. I'm not a talented artist. In 2019 I tried making a game for someone else but it was stressing me out. It can be difficult to find something other than a drawing, but I like trying to go slightly above and beyond. Speaking of gifts, my older brother sent me a gift online. He gave me a $50 yearly platinum subscription to chess.com. So I can play unlimited puzzles and get unlimited reviews on my games. I'm going to have so much fun with it. ^_^

    I don't know anything about Australia. I wouldn't expect it to be noisy. I imagine it as a desert land. Thank you for the picture. It's insightful. I lived in a similar neighborhood, but only for 1 year. Have you finished Brilliant Diamond? I reached Victory Road. I added Dialga on my team. I know there's a stigma against legendaries, but I also think we should play how we enjoy it. I simply like dialga.

    I heard of it, honestly it probably won't ever end at this point, it's probably going to be endemic and just be a normal part of life like the flu and other viruses. Getting vaccinated should become normal, like it is for the flu each year.

    And glad it went well even if expensive ;__; I do have glasses but don't wear them much anymore, ever since I started being aware of the feeling of them sitting on my nose it started driving me crazy to wear them. I hope I can get over that, but I just hate feeling them on my nose so much lol. And contacts are out of the question, sticking something in my eye is something I will never ever do.

    And ooh okay! We will definitely do our best to ensure only active people can participate and that anyone who is missed gets something. <3 It's super nice whoever you gifted to said they liked the gift too, that by itself must have been a nice feeling. I wish I had time to sign up... but I'm just not massively motivated to draw right now, so I know I wouldn't be able to finish.

    I never lived in Manhattan! I lived in a NYC borough called Staten Island which was mostly suburbs aka houses. Here's a picture that describes what most of the borough looks like. Usually pretty quiet! Living in a crowded city seems tiring, right now we live on the 6th floor of an apartment building that's close by to the city central here in Australia which is way louder than anywhere I've lived lol. But that's mostly from cars/motorcycles and occasional drunk/crazy people yelling..... lol

    There is still so much we don't know about the virus. Have you heard of the new variant? It's called Omicron. You know, sometimes it feels like it will never end. Also, I did finish my eye exam. It went very well. I'm getting a prescription which will give me 20/20 vision in my right eye and 20/30 in my left. It was expensive though. $120 even with insurance. My mother payed for what it couldn't cover. Do you use glasses or contacts?

    Many people look down on the Wii U. I have fond memories of it. I made a group of friends at school because our teacher would hook up his Wii U console on the projector. We would hang out for hours after school ended and play stuff as Mario Kart and Smash Brothers. I was never good at Mario Kart. We could only do it on certain days of the week, when the teacher was around.

    I think I was paired with somebody who signed up and went inactive. I did make a post though. https://imgur.com/a/pFFOXfp It's okay. I skipped out last year but I'll try again this year. I still gave a gift and they said they liked it, so it wasn't a total loss. I made an online christmas comic. I don't think I spoke with you in 2019, so I probably would have never asked.

    If it's okay to ask, was it strange living in such a busy place as New York? I have never lived in a city. It must be so weird having people around 24/7. I have never even been to New York, although I've been to New Jersey. My oldest brother lives there. He wanted to move to Ireland, but financially it wasn't easy.

    It didn't fortunately, all I had was a sore arm which is perfectly normal. Meanwhile my mom reacted badly to it and slept for days, but she had COVID before and I hear people who had it that get vaccinated have stronger side effects. Probably not everyone though, but it's what I heard!

    Yeah sleep has been better, though it wasn't awful generally either. Only occasionally did I get woken up by the discomfort but it was pretty rare and most of the annoying cramps and stuff happened at night, before bed. Human bodies are so complex and it's so tiring how many things can go wrong aha. Fortunately most of them are minor. @[email protected]

    and all good!! I can't believe how much time has passed tbh, it feels like ages ago when even the Wii was new. Never owned one until way later when brother suddenly got interested and asked for one, we only had a few games though like Mario Party and some movie-themed games cause he was young and liked playing those. lool

    And omg, definitely say something next time if you get missed!! I know that always is so sad and disappointing. When I signed up before I didn't have time to finish mine but I let the other person know I was still working on it, and got it done a bit later. It stinks when people sign up for things and then don't engage, or at least let people know they're no longer able to participate.... :( I'm so sorry you had to experience that, if I knew I would've made you something myself!!

    I'm feeling alright now. Although I hope they develop a permanent vaccine. Did the initial vaccine cause you any issues? I was able to get the booster at the in store pharmacy while my mother stopped to buy cat food. Other than the sickness after, it was very quick and easy.

    Since the discomfort is gone, does it help with sleep at all? Anyways, I hope you guys work out the trigger. A lack of sleep can make you feel groggy. I don't need much sleep to function, but there are people who need that full 8 hours.

    I apologize, but I can't fully relate. I don't have memories related to the GBC. As a console, it's older than I am. I have played it. It lacks a backlight and I found it difficult to use. I'd rather just play the old Pokemon games on a 3DS. Of course, they haven't released the Gen 3 games. I don't think of you as old though. We simply have different experiences. My first console was a Nintendo Wii I received for my 6th birthday. The virtual console was like a treasure trove.

    I do like the Secret Santa idea you guys do yearly. I tried a couple years ago but my experience wasn't the greatest. I didn't receive anything when gifts were exchanged. We were told to post if we didn't get anything. Sadly, I was skipped over again. I understood how much work went into the event, and I didn't want to pester anybody, so I never said anything. I'll sign up as a back up gifter this time. Being excluded hurt, but it gave me more understanding and empathy.

    Aww ;__; Hopefully a day later you feel a bit better! Shots and vaccines can be a bit tough on people sometimes, really hope you're recovering well <3 <3 So sorry you had to miss the game though oof. Next time!

    thanks so much for the well wishes too. It's not been too difficult in the last few days, seems like a lot of the discomfort is gone, so it's probably sensitivity to something I'm eating + anxiety combo haha. Hopefully in the next few weeks I can work out what the trigger is.

    (I don't remember if I/my family thought the patriotism was weird, it probably was more different for me since I immediately started going to school when they graduated already. I honestly miss those times when the GBC/GBA were newer, but that's because I've been feeling oddly nostalgic lately for some reason. Getting older stinks sometimes...)

    and ooh :D glad you're having fun with it \o/ I have been slowly going through BDSP so NH has fallen a little behind but I'm excited to go back to it again soon!!

    I understand. My mother's side of the family immigrated from Ireland. Although I imagine it must be a bit weird dealing with some of the patriotism? (Like, pledge every morning in schools, fireworks on 4th of July, etc). I saw your thread. I hope the diet works out. I do have an appointment Friday for an eye exam. I have a history of vision issues, ranging from an astigmatism and at one point I had surgery on my left eye. I've been fine in recent years. I'm hoping for the best.

    I've been playing animal crossing a bunch again. Mostly because my sister had some DIY recipes for me on her island. I randomly started terraforming again. I have no sense of space management. I made a theme park area, but I ran out of miles and can't buy anymore stuff for it. It's quite a mess.

    The booster was painless. I'm not feeling well though. This is the worst reaction I've ever had from a shot. My friends were going to take me to a football game tonight, but I'll be missing it. -sadface- My arm feels battered, and I've been overwhelmingly sleepy.

    all good, my family are Russian immigrants so we can get a bit lazy with thanksgiving even when I was in the US :3 but gosh I love food!! it is honestly good I didn't do anything this year here in Aus though, since I'm on a strict diet for medical reasons right now ;__;

    And yes! that's one of my complaints too. a lot of the mons feel the same. we don't need to see tons of Geodude, Bidoof, Starly, Zubat etc, yet also have only a few fire types to choose from the whole game. Wish they adapted Platinum's better balancing.

    and thank you, it did ^^ How was your booster omg? did you feel anything? I won't get mine for a few more months prolly, too early still. :O

    I figured you probably didn't celebrate. I was hesitant to send it because my first thought was that it wouldn't make sense in your country. I spent the day after thanksgiving looking at avatar photos. I don't particularly like this one, but I might stick with it for a bit.

    I never played the original Diamond/Pearl, but I've noticed it feels like the trainer opponents for lacking in variety. (so many geodudes). I have an Empoleon, Girafarig, Absol, Crobat, Blissey. I randomly traded a togepi and revived another Jirachi. I don't need a second Jirachi, so I'll probably give it away. I beat crasher wake, your definitely ahead of me. I'm slow.

    I hope your panic attack situation improved? I haven't felt that great with anxiety either. Oh well. I'm getting my covid booster today.

    happy late thanksgiving!! we don't really celebrate here but hope you had a lovely one ~~~

    And yeah.. I was thinking about the Sinnoh thing the other day. It feels like a lot of the wild encounters are the same few ones which appear everywhere. I wish there was a bit more type variety too, like why do we have so many of the same Pokémon in places yet have almost no fire types anywhere? The wild encounters is something they could've taken from Platinum, variety was so much better there!

    And yes I like it so far :D I'm currently at the area for gym 6 and exploring Iron Island. Where are you now?? Hopefully you like the team you have :3

    I feel the same cravings towards pokemon games. There are much more complex franchises with deeper mechanics and stories. I keep coming back. I've never felt disappointment towards the direction of the series. Pokemon at it's core has always been a simple fun franchise. I know this has nothing to do with coffee. I can appreciate Sword/Shield too. There's such a variety of Pokemon early on, you can become so creative with team building. I think Sinnoh has the weaker aspect, because the early game Pokemon feel a bit limited.

    I hope you've enjoyed these games so far. I really like them. The art style is cute and happiness inducing. I feel the same way about Gen 2. I'm also starting to understand why people preferred sprites. Nonetheless, the 3D is still beautiful to me.

    Midge is cute. I had never heard of her until I searched the name into google. A bird named Pierce has moved into my town. He's a jock personality. I have a weird mix of villagers. My originals never moved out. However, I also have some very new villagers who I haven't taken the time to know yet.

    I don't like it either.. but sometimes I just crave it for some reason? Not sure why, I rarely drink it unless I'm craving it randomly. Maybe I like the texture but not the flavor or something, I dunno @[email protected] But I do like matcha so maybe if I buy matcha powder and mix that with milk to make a matcha latte it will satisfy the cravings ~ (bike riding seems so refreshing!! I haven't rode in sooo long wonder if I still remember how lol)

    I planned a bit, like I want to try Purugly this time (and Piplup yet again lol), but like you not much really. Gonna see how it goes too. Hope you have fun! I'm playing now :D Decided to try using Pachirisu again too, tried back in DPPt but it was super weak... that hasn't changed, but maybe will be more of a challenge this way!

    And tell me about it. T_T I wish I could bring some of them back but oh well. Right now I just want Midge to please move out, I love her but I have too many normal personality villagers!!
