With a franchise as on-going as Pokémon, there are some firm favourites and with so many fans there’s bound to be some different opinions. There’s still lots of debate over which Pokémon is the best and which generation is the best. I’ve seen many fallouts and arguments on the internet. I’ve been a fan of the series since the series came to the UK, and I have written quite a lot of stuff about Pokémon. I share my opinions with a lot of the fan base in general. A lot of us love Pikachu and Eevee and think Charizard is badass. So here’s a list of my unpopular opinions about the Pokémon franchise.
Vocal is the ideal blogging site for me. I’ve had experience with blogging sites like Livejournal, Tumblr, Twitter and Wordpress before it went really mainstream. To this day, I still believe that most of the Internet is powered by Wordpress which many use to sell their brand, and become their own identity. I’ve seen many sites promise writers that they can supplement their income with their writing. Out of all of them, I’ve found Vocal to be the most reliable. I’ve been writing here for 3 years and published all sorts of stuff; reviews, ramblings, recipes and short stories. Pretty much anything can find a home on here.
It is amazing what ideas you get when you binge watch the Great British Bake Off on Netflix.
I always associate pumpkins with Halloween. When I started travelling, I began to see Pumpkins in a new light. I had childhood memories of carving pumpkins, but never actually tasted one before. “Maybe we’ll have some pumpkin pie” whistles on the radio. The lyrics from Walking Around the Christmas Tree felt weird to me when I was younger because I would always associate pumpkins with Halloween. Now I’m a fan. It’s not just Pumpkin Spice Lattes that should have all the glory. Pumpkin is a really good thing to have in any cuisine. The pumpkin salad I had at a hotel in Japan, was one of the best salads I ever had in my life. Pumpkin curry works a treat. Pumpkin pie is lush. Having been a big fan of the sweet potato pancakes from Korea, I decided to try and make some myself at home. It worked out really well, so I thought maybe try pumpkin ones too.
Like so many of you, I had so many plans for 2020. The birth of a new decade and a new year made me want to chamge my life for the better and try new things. Many brides never got to make it down the isle. Holidays and events cancelled. So many little things that we used to take for granted, are now more precious than ever. Not being able to go abroad this year, made me see that the UK had a lot of nice places. I always knew there were some good spots, but there are some underrated gems. Because I have this goal to set foot on thirty countries, I’m more interested in places abroad and if I got online friends there, I can meet them and even make new friends. Though I’ve also got amazing friends here too.
Before the lockdown, I wrote a list of articles that I wanted to write on here on my wordpress blog. This was one of them. Whilst I didn’t do as much writing as I had hoped for, I am still proud of the little achievements and small word counts. My 10th book, a dystopian novel called Game of Mass Destruction got its first review on Goodreads and it’s a positive review.
I should be taking selfies under a bridge in Venice for my Instagram.
The virus has the world as we know it.
