It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Between two different trips, finishing the academic year, and beginning my summer job, I’ve missed not one, but TWO Month in Review posts! I know, I know, I’m the worst. It’s okay, you can say it.
But as atonement for my wrongs, today I bring you a MIR double-header, covering May and June of 2019. That’s twice the stuff to go through, so I’ll do my best just to hit the highlights and keep it brief. But if you missed any of my other blog posts from the past two months, check those out first:
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!
This week has been pretty interesting – I caught a cold on Sunday morning, and so I’ve been dealing with that all this week. Coupled with the start of the semester, it’s been a little crazy, but thankfully I’m feeling much better now. I also had a snow day on Wednesday, so I got to get some much-needed rest and relaxation.
On Monday, I shared a post about the Things I Learned From Being Cyberschooled. My high school experience was unique in a number of ways, but it definitely taught me a lot of useful skills, so if that interests you, be sure to give that post a read!
It’s hard to believe this is my last blog post of 2017, but here we are – another year come and gone! I’ve been working on a “2017 In Review” post, which will go up on New Year’s Day, and it’s been a lot of fun to look back on all of the awesome things that happened this past year. I can’t wait to share it with you! But in the meantime, you can read my post from this past Monday, which is all about my favorite Christmas traditions. (And if you missed it, you can see my “Behind the Scenes” video where I create that very post)
I really enjoyed spending Christmas with my family and friends this year, and now we’re getting ready to celebrate the New Year together. But in the meantime, here’s what I’ve been up to…
