This user does not exist. All impressions to the contrary are propaganda pieces and not to be trusted.

First time doing fried chicken, using a paprika I brought back from a holiday for flavour and holy fuck that was probably the best fried chicken bucket I've ever had.

Likes making food and sharing with people. However, creatures may be driven away due awkwardness and excessive puns
I like walking in the rain with a umbrella. Walking always helps me think of new ideas and I can just let my mind wander. The rain just makes me feel a bit more peaceful, and I can appreciate getting warm and dry when I eventually go inside

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
So for my poetry class, we have to write an essay on a poet and describe both their style of poetry and why they do it so well.

The poet I picked was Jack Prelutsky, because I don't know a lot of poets and I remember enjoying his poems when I was in first grade.

I went to the library because apparently they had some of his books available for check out. I looked at several of them, and...WOW. His poems have held up TREMENDOUSLY.

I just finished the first draft of my essay for Adam Bede, by George Eliot, and I feel really good about it. It also helps that this means I'll have more time to prepare for spring break! I'm going home on Thursday!

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also a huge fan of Smash Bros. and writing.
I actually got praised at work tonight. Considering how bad things have been lately, it felt really good, and made me feel a little better about everything that's been going on. I'm still not sure if I want to stay or not, but it was nice.

A passionate bunch, Aureums are limited by their own minds. Who knows what happens when they break through their mental barriers?
Honestly, hearing that people on the forums actually care about me makes me feels nice y’know?

A timid Pokémon typically found in groups. The only thing that motivates her more than companionship is food.
I just discovered a locally owned Chinese restaurant near my house and the food is delicious!

This Pokémon is said to be scared of its own shadow. It can often be found sitting in the rain.
As a person with general & social anxiety and a lot of self-doubt, it's all too easy for me to fall into patterns of avoidance and put up walls/make claims of a preference for solitude to avoid a perceived danger in social interaction. But for the first time in a very long time, I'm actually making new friends(maybe? wow!), acting like "myself" around people I've just met, and looking forward to social events. Putting yourself out there is terrifying, but the rewards are worth it. ♥

Tired or inspired. Loves Cappuccino.
Seriously? The one thing in those current times that makes me happy at the moment?
Animal Crossing New Horizons! I managed to get it as a download with eShop cards and when playing it, it really calms me down and pushes every thought about the current crisis aside! And the game itself is so beautifully made and absolutely fun!

Despite loving the outdoors, the Neb Pokemon more frequently participates in introverted hobbies. As a result it has a socially awkward temperment.
Since our graduation ceremony in two months will probably be cancelled, my childhood friends and I have different plans. We’ll have a graduation party instead! I’ll have to drive three hours to see them in my hometown, but it’ll be a blast.

I can only co-sign that right now? Animal Crossing feels like a big shot of distilled happiness. While everyone and everything grows more and more neurotic about current events, I appreciate just being able to bundle up and chill with cute animals.

Today, the sun is shining and it feels like spring.

Seems like such a small thing to find joy in, but it lifted my spirits to emerge from my home office and see sunlight streaming in the window. To be able to step out with my husband, soak up the sunshine, start pointing out yardwork improvement projects we want to get done this spring. It felt normal and rejuvenating, and I'm just very thankful for the break in the gloomy weather and overwhelming feeling of hopelessness surrounding the ongoing pandemic, even if it was brief.

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.
The books I ordered off Amazon came a day early!!! How exciting! :D It's frustrating to have to buy books instead of getting them from the library nowadays, but hey, at least I have books. Now I can start doing the research I need for my storylocke...

Wild Ordo will often hide alone; however, caught specimen are loyal until their death.
Game devs that actually know how to play and balance their own game (and are pretty darn good at it) are awesome. VALORANT is going to be a pop-up powerhouse in esports in the coming months, and it is so much fun to play, even in losing games.
