Well that didn't take long, did it?

So, one postless month later. Wash of a month really.

Pokemon Go is more or less over for me. My main trouble was not having enough friends sufficiently into it. Also the Wireless Data thing, but mostly the first as it turns out.

So after 27 days I managed an assortment of pokemon, level 20, and 10 magnificent coins from that one time I held a gym. I caught 54 pokemon, and saw 56, so, we're a little over a third of the way there. Anyways, it was fun for a while but I can't be asked to keep at it. The experiment proves it's more or less possible to play without Wireless Data but ehhh, you can only grind so many pidgeys and ratattas before you stop caring about the hypothetical wondrous new pokemon you might find. Sorry, that's a rather presumptuous you there.

Regarding the 5-point plan:
1) Get a job - nope! Haven't tried very hard until 3 days ago though. Applications out, we'll see what comes of them. There's lots of adverts for grocery store jobs so I figure I do have a fallback plan. An alternative plan is to trash my Economics degree and try something else. Comp Sci seems exciting, although I'm hearing mixed reports on whether or not a degree is worth it instead of a focused programming course/camp thing. Luckily I've 'til October 15th to worry that over.
Score: 2/10

2) Edit that Story - well, I've sorted through old papers. I have way too many storylets and alternate versions of stories. And it's all paper so there's a bunch of paper about now. Short answer: not really.
Score: 2/10

3) Finish that Twine - I discovered a version that is about as far as I could have hoped for. It's got an introduction sequence and a few basic explanations and a stupid subplot with a box that still makes me smile. I edited it a bit. Finish? What the heck was I thinking when I wrote that? Well, I guess I can cut the scope a bit. Make it shorter, sillier, etc etc!
Score: 3/10

4) Post some blogs - well. Hmm. Could've not posted. At all.
Score: 2/8

5) Finish Darkest Dungeon - ooo, finally a good one. I've only got 2 Darkest Dungeon missions, although I need to level up a few more scrubs because of that "no character will do more more than 1 DD mission" rule. Bleh! When I wrote this I didn't include New Game+ obvs.
Score: 8/10

Overall Score: 3/10. Garbage! Well, I've still got a few weeks to sort this out.
