Happy April, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the transition between seasons like I am – we finally started getting some warm weather here in the past few weeks, which is a relief after such a long winter.
I’ll tell you a little more about my month in a moment, but first, here’s what I blogged about this month in case you missed anything!
Happy August! I gotta tell you, July flew by so fast. It’s hard to believe the summer is almost over, but I’ve still got one more month to go.
I’ve kept busy with Camp NaNoWriMo, fun trips with friends, and other adventures here and there as well. If you want a quick summary of my month, be sure to check out my 1 Second Everyday video compilation from July – just a quick glimpse at what the last 30 days of my life were like.
And in case you missed anything on Maggie’s Musings, here’s what I blogged about this month:
Two years ago, a little app overtook the world. This app was Pokémon Go, a mobile game based on the popular video game franchise that used GPS and augmented reality technology to bring the cartoon creatures to the real world.
People everywhere grabbed their smartphones and left to explore their towns and neighborhoods. Even today, the game still brings people together regularly. I’ve made some great friends at my school through the game, and there were dozens of people at a local park for the most recent Community Day.
In Pokémon Go there are three teams: Team Valor, Team Mystic, and Team Instinct. Once players reach a certain level, they join one of these teams and then compete against the others.
The choice of team is arbitrary, but each one embodies a certain set of characteristics. Knowing this, it got me thinking – if fictional characters played Pokémon Go, what teams would they be on? I’ve decided to “sort” a handful of them and give a few reasons why. Plus, if you’ve always wanted to know what team you should be on, I have just the quiz for you!
I’m running out of ideas for how to begin these blog posts, and it’s getting down to the wire to get this blog post written, so I’m just gonna jump into the post.
In case you missed it, I posted the second half of my TBR purge on Monday, so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already. In addition, I posed a new video on my YouTube channel on Wednesday! A few days before Christmas, Paul and I went out to a disc golf course so he could try some of his new discs and so I could test out my new GoPro camera. I finally got around to putting all of the clips together, so I hope you enjoy!
Since it’s the beginning of a new month, in addition to writing my regular weekly wrap-up, I thought I’d do a quick recap of how I did with my daily goals last month.
I knew this blog post had to be written, but instead I sat and played The Oregon Trail on the Internet Archive. Because my priorities are definitely in order. (Also, in case you’re wondering: I did not make it to Oregon. Because again, poor planning.)
Anyway, my weird gaming habits aside, happy April, everyone! I hope your March was awesome – I know mine was! So without further ado, let’s get right to it: Here’s my best of March!
