School is out for summer. Pokemon Go has finally been released in Japan. I downloaded it as soon as it was available and caught something as I sat in my chair. Do I not need to walk to play this? ;)

Big part of my job is to listen to people and what they have to say. I’ve been doing it for so long that I have become very good at it. I am a darn good listener. Not sure if that is the reason, but I find most people that I talk to only wanting to talk about themselves and not bothering to listen to what I have to say, which can be quite annoying as you can imagine. I’ve realized that people, even my close friends, don’t really give a shit about what I have to say or offer to tell them, or is it that they are so busy so desperately wanting to be understood? In any case I secretly think that what I have to say is far more interesting in most cases, ha. It’s their loss, not mine.

uh-oh
