Pinned toot

Since I don't have much to talk about here during the winter, I'm thinking about making this the instance where I talk about workout stuff.

Basically I started working out casually last January, not as a new-years thing, but because I was in physical therapy the month before. I messed up my neck/shoulders from drawing too much without stretching properly, but also looking down at my phone too much (work can get slow sometimes, lol).

Decided to make a new one of these to pin that actually has my code in text to copy/paste

If you add me, please let me know so I can set a nickname for you and know who you are!

Hi! Decided to make an account on this instance for my Pokemon Go posts, since I still casually play when the weather is nice enough to go biking.

Thought I'd include some of my art - a couple pics of my OC right around when the original sun/moon launched, a cute Halloween thing, and magmar just chilling. (My main/art account is @SunScales)

I'll probably mostly talk about Pokemon Go but may also boost some of my pokeart over here too.

I get irrationally excited when I get to explain to someone new that The Mew Glitch in red/blue is real but it has nothing to do with the truck :mew:

I'm gonna skate today!!!

<goes outside>

maybe i should eat lunch instead

I JUST GOT MORE CONTEXT FOR THIS UNPROMPTED lol

apparently they were talking about shinies

guy 1: "I got a friend on my list who has a pink sheep"

guy 2: "oh that's cool"

guy 1: "yeah it kinda looks like cotton candy"

guy 2: "yeah that's..."

<awkward pause>

guy 1: "... oH THAT'S HER"

so at work toward the end of the day I had an impromptu meeting with my manager at his desk

I got back to my desk right before 5 and found three coworkers standing there, and they all looked at me and went

"where did you get cotton candy"

and I was like... what

I don't... have cotton candy??

but then I remembered

So do we know if the Team Rocket stuff in Pokemon Go is a temporary event, or if they're just going to stick around forever now?

I really enjoy them but haven't had a lot of time to go out fighting them so far, pretty much just had one day for it.

i may or may not have spent TOO MUCH of friday driving around fighting team rocket without realizing the next day was going to be ralts day also, lol

I feel like mudkip day was still only just yesterday

it's so humid out today and I've got a bunch of stuff to do, so I'm just gonna give ralts a pass πŸ˜΄β€‹

also the color of these sort of matches my avatar and i DID NOT PLAN THAT

i actually wanted my skates to match my helmet, which is PINK/black/purple/white. so they're missing pink, but I can easily fix that by buying pink wheels sometime later.

I don't know how much it matters for quad skates but for inlines, i know the boot size is incredibly important, since if you have it wrong it can make balance super super difficult

for me these are close but still feel weird at times. luckily the laces will actually go SUPER tight and that helps to compensate, but the problem i'm running into with just making them tighter is it made my toes feel weird and i was afraid it was putting them to sleep, lol.

so i think thicker socks should help. which is lame for summer, but oh well.

so, here's the new skates! they're fancy, because that wheel thing on the tongue will auto-tie the laces for you if you turn it - so I don't have to tie my boots anymore, which is GREAT because I hate doing that, lol

I'm still getting used to them, the wheels are bigger and softer than my old pair's, and I'm afraid the boots themselves *might* be a teensy bit too big... but I just realized that a thicker pair of socks might be all I need to solve that problem, so I'll try that tomorrow.

Whoa I just realized I haven't posted here in a minute

I broke my skates a few weeks ago and that was mostly why, haha. I thought I'd be able to replace them the afternoon it happened, but then that turned into four days, and then THAT turned into three weeks

so! here i am! i just got new inline skates YESTERDAY after breaking my cheap pair last month, bc of shipping/order mixups. lol
