June 2021 Favorites

It's been a busy month, so let's get right to to the favorites!

Neopets: I've been on Neopets since 2000. Played it heavily for 10 years, and have since gotten re-obsessed with it in short phases. The site is undergoing major changes with the rise of mobile gaming and the death of flash. In some ways, this is a bad time to be getting re-obsessed with Neopets. (I can't tell you how many times the unconverted pages have crashed my computer in the last month.) But the heart wants what it wants? When it wants? The good news is the site is getting better to use on mobile. Even the old pages work better on my phone than my computer, and the converted pages work great on both. The games... well, they need some help. But the site, itself, is really trying to have a resurgence. I don't know if that will happen, but I know I want to be active when/if it does.

Pokémon Go: I've been playing Go since around when it came out. It was my first Pokémon game. (I know.) And I mostly played it by myself. In my house. Which, admittedly, wasn't always ideal. But since quarantine, the team has implemented some features that make the game easier to play from the comfort of your home. To the delight of this extreme introvert. Also, it turns out my uncle is really good at the game. So, he's been helping me out!

In Your Eyes: My cousin recommended this movie to me, and it was right up my alley! A bit of fantasy, a romance, and most importantly, deep conversations. Basic premise... two people realize they've been psychically connected since they were children and start speaking to each other from afar. Just what I needed to start feeling inspired again!

The Sims 4: I finally started playing The Sims 4! It took some tweaking to run nicely on my computer without absolutely destroying the graphics output, but now I'm really enjoying it. I doubt I'll ever stop playing Sims 2, but it's been fun watching my self sim and muse soulmate falling in love again, and getting the chance to play (and be friends with) Bella Goth! Follow my simming adventures here!

Music Favs: Higher Than You (Heavy English), No Saviors (CLAVVS), Around U (MUNA), Graves (Echoes), Get Out (Bantug), At Now (Anna Nalick), and The American Mall soundtrack.
