    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!!

    I don't like the taste of coffee. I think if you use coffee as a stimulate it can be a nice way of feeling more awake. I don't feel the need to drink it. I'll shower and get on my bike in the morning as a way of shrugging the morning feeling. If you don't mind me asking, do you still drink coffee?

    No planning for me. I know a few general things before I start, such as "I want a piplup" or "I want a crobat", otherwise I form my team as I go along. They release tonight in my time zone. I'll stay up until midnight. I bought Brilliant Diamond digitally. I don't usually buy phsycial copies anymore. Do you plan your team? I think it's perfectly fine to do so. We all enjoy these games differently. Some people enjoy nuzlocking and monotype runs. I have never done a monotype run.

    I'm trying to improve my attention span. I often pause videos so I can randomly google the most random things. That said, I did finally try the island building DLC on animal crossing. I really like it. I wish I could take these villagers back to my island because there are some I find endearing.

    Yeah.. caffeine can make you super jittery, I remember when I drank full black (no milk) coffee and took my stress relief pill.. I was so shaky the whole day. It felt awful. >< sorry about the gross medicine ahhh!

    glad you're looking forward to it :3 I'm not gonna use any of them, I think the game might be too easy if I do, but I will try to use mons I haven't used much before! have you planned any of your team yet?? (and omg yes I know the feel about shiny hunting being boring. I feel like my attention span for it is getting worse and worse......)

    In my own situation, they were more than willing to give me medicine. I didn't know what anxiety was though until it was explained. I knew only the term. The first thing they me was how much caffeine I drink. The answer was none. Also, I did take a different medicine for a fever this week. It was liquid. It's so gross.

    Oh, I haven't played an MMO in so long. It feels a bit overwhelming. There's so many people who play for years. I liked one MMO and played it all the time, but I was good at it and was less nervous about chatting.

    I'm honestly getting so excited about the pokemon games. Are you going to use the Mew or Jirachi? I don't have the attention span for shiny hunting, I get bored after about 15 or so minuites. Even with something in the background, I need more engagement.

    Yeah, I totally get that, and understand why some doctors may be reluctant to prescribe it. Back when I was having panic attacks my doctor didn't want to give me any kind of anxiety medication despite me clearly being completely panicked though, which I guess I understood given possibility of addiction, but I was clearly suffering - to the point where simpler things like meditating wouldn't help much - and some medicated help would've been nice :x I wasn't even that young either, in my mid 20s, so I understood the risks!!

    yeah it can be multiplayer too! Others can join your world and help you out with stuff. I've never done multi yet but strong people can help carry you through things if you need it. Which is nice if you have strong friends and want to catch up more quickly aha

    yes @ Unity, I heard!! I got used to the graphics, they're cute and it looks like they were improved on from the original trailers. I also did hear the PokéRadar (the shiny hunting tool in DP) was nerfed in ways that make getting shinies more difficult, and that sucks if it's intended/not a bug :(

    It took a couple tries. The initial I was prescribed was Buspirone. That was an awful expierence. I would always get heavy brain zaps 10 minuites after taking it. However it's a low dependency medicine. My age has created complications. My doctor was almost forceful in making me hand over the xanax the hospital gave me. At first I was confused. Now I understand. The last thing she wanted was a 17 year old devoloping a xanax addiction.

    ...Is it online game? From the way you speak of it that's what it sounds like. I had assumed it was a single player switch game. I don't mind grinding much, it gives me a chance to listen to podcasts/music. (being totally honest, i've stretched out messages on pokecommunity to finish playlists).

    This is my first time preordering a pokemon game. Did you know it's being made in Unity? The first time for a Pokemon game. I think the chibi artstyle is cute and reminds me of a DS game. Also, it always astounds me how many animal crossing villagers exist. I know none of whom you mentioned. Regardless, i'll be trying happy home paradise today. I have not got around to it yet.

    That's what my mom takes when she feels anxious! She's been taking it for a long time and says it works well ^^ It's good it works well, I guess it's one I can keep in mind if I ever feel like I need to go on medication..

    And yeah it's very similar. The art and story are great, or at least what I managed to do of it before the repeated grinding for upgrade items for my characters got too tedious. I was having fun but one day it all just....stopped. I think I just finished upgrading my last main character and then right as I did I leveled up, and the next character upgrade bracket unlocked. Meaning I didn't even have downtime and had to do it all over again. Realized then that I just didn't want to keep doing those same boss battles and etc daily constantly. It's no fun D:

    Yeah BDSP is so close now!! I honestly can't believe it, feels like yesterday when it was announced. Hopefully we both like it. And sure, if you win I can discount you now that you're able to get your own copy <3 can't wait till they're out so we can let each other know how it goes!!

    Fav villagers... hmm idk I love a lot. But Willow's color scheme is so cute and I love her. :D Also Poppy, Kid Cat, Lolly, and soo many of those cute ones. omg. I also like a lot of the new ones ~

    If I haven't mentioned it, what I take is called 'lexapro'. It's only given through prescription. At first I was worried about taking it because I had never taken a medication, and I was aware this stuff can have awful side effects. It really did change my life. It stops the chronic random worrying.

    I got curious and looked up Genshin Impact. It looks exactly like Breath of the Wild. You mentioned it being repetitive, but did you enjoy it for the most part? As in was it good enough to play through the entire thing? I felt the same way about Breath of the Wild. I never did it, despite putting so many hours into it. If I'm not enjoying a game, there will always be a point when I just can't get myself to pick it up anymore. If I force myself, it'll be a short playing session.

    Oh. I came up with the money and preordered Brilliant Diamond. I'm very excited for it. 7 days feels like so long. I've came down with some sort of illness, honestly makes me wish I could play it now. It's hard doing anything else when feeling stiff and feverish. I don't get sick often, so it's most unfortunate.

    By the way, in the very slim chance I win the Diamond/Pearl giveaway, can you guys just reroll and pass it to someone else or something? It's only fair. Or maybe you could just disqualify me. I don't even want to just take the gift card, it doesn't seem fair or in spirit of the giveaway.

    Do you have a favorite villager in animal crossing?
