More Memorabilias Unfolded [❁]Saturday, April 09, 2016
I was arranging all my things last weekend (because I have moved to a new room!) Because of that, I got to retrieve and arrange the items that I have been keeping all these years. That got me really nostalgic. The items were mostly from my childhood that have been with me for decades now. Some of them I already needed to throw out though. I thought of posting some of them here, to immortalize the memories (just like what I did on some of my items before):
Game Boy Light & The Pokemon Book. This Game Boy does not work anymore (😭) but I know I will keep this with me as long as I am alive. This Game Boy is too sentimental for me to be thrown away. I remember I "bought" it from a classmate. I never told my parents about it, and lied that it was given to me. :O This is where I played Pokemon Yellow. Those were such awesome awesome memories. I spent hours and hours and hours playing it. I just allowed myself to be immersed into that beautiful virtual world of Pokemon. I was not able to catch all 150 Pokemon though (damn those legendary birds and Mewtwo!), and Pikachu still refused to evolve. Up to this day, it haunts me that I was not able to finish that game.
I tried playing the newer versions of Pokemon today (in a Game Boy emulator) but it was not just the same. There's a whole new bunch of Pokemon specie that I am not familiar with anymore, and the gameplay is way way complicated. I'm sure I will again have to spend a significant amount of time playing it, and being an adult already, I think I won't be able to afford doing that anymore.
Other items that I discovered and needed to dispose were:
- a photo of my highschool crush (WTF, did I really keep that???)
- random letters from friends (sadly I have to throw them all now)
