“It matters. It matters which side we choose. Even if there will never be more light than darkness. Even if there can be no more joy in the galaxy than there is pain. For every action we undertake, for every word we speak, for every life we touch- it matters.”
-Qui-Gon Jinn, from Master and Apprentice by Claudia Gray
Just wanted to throw it out there that I have started a casual blog on the forums called Tales from the Pokemon Center detailing my experiences in the healthcare field. I've worked in hospitals, schools, in people's homes, daycares, skilled nursing facilities, and even at a veterinary clinic for some extra spice. I have lots of stories to share, so check it out if you're interested! :)
The Super Naturelocke ruleset is finally here, after years of playtesting! When each Pokémon’s personality has an effect on the way they battle, and your actions as their trainer actually help them learn and grow, raising Pokemon has never felt more personalized and realistic. And the deaths hurt a million times worse...
Today, I finished my first week as a real, paid occupational therapist. Full time work at a skilled nursing facility has its ups and downs, but one of my residents gave me a valentine today so overall I’d say it’s worth it
These are the nights I love. Cuddled up with a blanket and my bathrobe, drinking a glass of warm honeylemon tea, listening to piano covers of Studio Ghibli music. Catching up on all your lovely runs and getting lost in the tales of these wonderful creatures we call Pokemon. May your teams grow strong, your friendships bloom bright, and your losses never be forgotten.
