"Gotta Catch Em All"
I'm still in a Avengers hangover. I think I will be for awhile. The things that the film did to me, will forever stay with me. Luckily April is coming to an end we are at the dawn of my birth month. I need more light hearted content in my life. To say that i'm constantly stressing and worrying is an understatement. Things like Marvel and now Detective Pikachu keep me sane in the middle of it all. I got approached to work with my new friends at 7/11 to promote Detective Pikachu. Let me tell you, it's not a job for me, even if it is. I would have promoted it regardless. Little fun fact, i'm a HUGE Pokemon fan. I grew up playing the games on my gameboy color. Pikachu and company were always my favorite. Plus they are so freaking cute. I've been heading to 7/11 since I got back from New York. It's a habit now. I swear I get half my drinks from there and Starbucks. I guess I truly am thirsty for more. Seeing Pokemon all over is that feeling of comfort. I remember when Pokemon Go came out. It was summer and my glaucoma was acting up. Yet I still went out to catch them all. I haven't played for a hot second, but I will get back to it eventually. I have a lot on my mind. I think as my birthday approaches i'll have more to say about it. Just like in the movie, it has this aspect of hope. I'm doing my best to hold onto hope. It's been hard. Going from that incident, to Easter limbo, now to this. We're moving forward but i'm trying to find my way back out. I need to go and physically catch them all. Catch what I want in life. I'm getting frustrated to the max with instagram. I'm wearing my smile but it's been getting harder to get work on there. I don't think people realize little jobs like this mean a lot to people like me. This year is not last year, I got so much work last year. It was amazing. I hope I can still put out content and work with people who want to work with me. I still feel that I have a little left in me to give. Let me give it. I'm glad that the nerd side of my life can get me jobs. Because I just want to tell my story through and through and take it to a place where I eventually can wrap this all up and move on. I'm doing my best to make everything go full circle. And the little amounts of loneliness that i'm feeling is getting to me. I know i'm not alone, but I just want some of the people I love closer to me. And i'm itching to get back to New York. There is something there. My gut just keeps saying, we gotta go back somehow, someway, soon. Along with the stress, worry and loneliness, we are figuring it out. Just like Pikachu and Tim band together and figure things out, I have to as well. I have to go out there and catch every little bit of whats left. There's a big world out there and I really hope I can manifest this out into it by saying, please don't give up on me. I'm so glad I got to do this with 7/11 because I really needed something to come my way. I hope that more can come and that I can make this story of mine feel a little more whole again. We just have to wait and see what May has to offer. Hopefully something good can come along, once again.
