I've been cooped up in my room lately, determined to clock POKEMON X on my 3DS and beat my boyfriend and all my other friends that were smart enough to get the game... it means that I've tried to squeeze every free minute I have in between blogging, emailing, work, parties, social outings, fashion events and baking to play.
I know there are more pressing issues in the world to think about like washing my hair or feeding the dogs (or feeding myself in that matter) but playing Pokemon at the age of 26, still transports me back to me to that giddy 10 year old kid playing Pokemon red, blue, yellow, gold and silver. I finished all games but since the Pokemon went beyond the original 150... I stopped (and I guess I grew older...).
Playing games is fun but it seriously is different when you're an adult. I have to schedule 2 hours here and there in my diary for play, I make decisions like taking a train over driving to get play-time. Doing this has seriously put my work/life balance into perspective. Pokemon is pure play-time for me, not like social obligations or fashion events and I've found that my play-time is slipping away.
And my leisurely strolls have gone out the window too. This is one of my rare walks I've taken recently, the type I take for a good escape or breather. As I've been mentioning lately, I've been happier so there is rarely anything bad to escape from these days.
All I can look forward to is pure play-time and my now fun-loving life.
Riders by Lee adopts a care-free, life loving and relaxed attitude. So today I wear some wicked Riders by Lee mid-rise Vegas denim with slashed knees and a velvet/chiffon top from their 2013 collection in the hopes that I can adopt this Riders by Lee attitude forever and ever.
