Alright! One week of school has passed, and it went by faster than usual.
Well of course, since now my Wednesdays are off-days and meant to be for meeting up with my team's advisor.
Our Final Year Project is coming along real slow, and we're in dire need of catching up to our work schedule.
So I made it clear to myself that I'll devote every Sunday to be personal work-day, and work on the character sketches and other miscellaneous drawings that can be put into my portfolio.
Reason being that I can't work on a Saturday.
I'll be so pooped from school, I'll sleep in and laze around the house in a daze.
And there's also the matter of playing some of my games and actually trying to complete them.
I swear, I must be the slowest gamer alive.
And speaking of games, I finally got Pokemon Pearl!
Love, love, love!
Two days ago, my family and I were out for dinner and I thought I'd pop by my favourite game store, since it was at the same mall.
So while waiting for our food to come, I ran off for a while to see what's at the used games shelf.
Anyway while browsing, I was wondering how long games that are released in the US will reach Singapore shores.
So I asked the nice dude at the counter (I've got to get his name...) about it, specifically about Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.
And well, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that he was going to collect the shipment of Pokemon on Friday, instead of the stated US release of 22nd April.
Then he asked if I would like to reserve a copy, just in case.
Now, Singapore, I noticed, doesn't have a lot of DS players.
Most of the citizens prefer playing on the PSP while out, and not many people have heard of the DS in general.
So seeing as to how it's pretty unpopular here, I've never had to reserve copies of game titles when it gets released.
Uhmmm back to my story, I told the dude yes, it would be nice if I reserved a copy anyway, in case the amount of DS players increased overnight.
He said he'll call me when it arrives, so I went back to my family a happy girl.
Not to mention annoying, because I kept singing the Pokemon theme song to my sister. HAHA!
Yeh so Friday came and went, I totally forgot about Pokemon coming out since I was too busy with school.
And cut to present time, I was rudely awakened by the incessant buzz of my handphone at 11am, indicating that I had a missed call.
So I called the unknown number back, wanting to chew the person's head off for disturbing me in mind, but stopped short when I realized it was the dude from the game store.
Ok well I wasn't as excited then, but instead, flopped back to bed to sleep again, and woke up later in the afternoon.
But yeh, after bathing and eating and all, I realized that...
HEY. POKEMON IS OUT.
And rushed out of the house to collect my copy.
And I got the Palkia stylus as well.
I thought the free stylus thing was only available in the US.
Ok so anyway, wow. Long story.
I haven't started playing yet.
I haven't stopped singing the Pokemon theme song to my sister yet either.
But I will now.
Oh yeeeessss I will.
