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).
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.

like the way they set up the intro of the movie I wasn't 100% sure if it was supposed to be a retcon or not, and that ended up being intentional and it was very good
hi I can't sleep so I'm gonna talk about Mewtwo in detective pikachu for a moment (spoilers) Show more
I really appreciate just the subtle stuff they did with Mewtwo, like
Mewtwo speaks telepathically, so he never moves his mouth. but when the villain possesses him, the guy isn't as familiar with Mewtwo's body, so he uses his voice & mouth
I also really really love that Mewtwo's first line in the movie is "they're outside", since that's also what he says right before he breaks his tube in the original movie
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

re: i love skating 😊 Show more
so YEAH i finally got my cool new skates figured out!! so now i want to practice some more precise stopping techniques, and once i feel comfortable with those, i'll maybe be able to skate to work?
i mean, summer's almost over though, so maybe not, haha
i love skating 😊 Show more
took me a while but i've finally got my new skates worked out the best i can
they ended up being maybe a half size too big, so i tried a few different shoe soles to see if i could get them to fit better. they worked, but not perfectly. i still ended up with foot cramps, my boot caving in (bc of how the laces are done), and my toes falling asleep
BUT i found some gel toe covers specifically made for skates that are slightly too big (they're technically for roller derby) and they're working great. it's an *almost* perfect fit now: no cramping, no caving, nothing falling asleep. still some awkwardness but it's minor at worst.
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
