    I've been thinking of a rebranding for a while now and this will do until I decide whether or not I want something else after I guess. xD

    It feels weird being on here after so long. I feel sort of sad seeing how much my interest in Pokémon has diminished. Hope all has been well for those here, both old and new.

    Well, it certainly has been good here for me, at least.
    Losing interest for something is indeed not nice, but maybe you'll regain it sometime, who knows?

    I’m feeling a little burnout with the older Pokémon games as well. I’d try a fan game to change things up, but my laptop is too slow to run them well.

    Really? Hmm, that's bad.
    Maybe you could watch a playthrough of those games? I know that's not the same, but that's the best I can think of right now.

    Having a bit of Internet burnout right now. A lot of the sites I'm on have dropped in activity, and I'm finding it harder and harder to make content.

    In my experience, the best way to cure burnout is to do something completely different for a while...I get this a lot with longer video games, or games of the same type. Routine is comfortable, but it's nice to shake things up every now and then to avoid mediocrity and boredom.

    ...wish I could do that with work. Just 22 working days left this year and I'll have a two week break for Christmas/New Year. Halfway through my birthday week off now and it's gone by so quick ;-;

    I've been on a social media break since around 2012. xD

    idk why, maybe it's the company I keep or the things I'm interested in, but I find social media a breeding ground for the worst kind of toxic behaviour. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned and prefer a forum setting?

    I mean, you're not wrong. I sometimes pop on social media (don't have an account) to look at fanart or birds or content that interests me, but I sometimes run into some stuff that is questionable at best and straight up toxic at worst, and it often leaves me feeling confused and tired. Thankfully, I'm learning to just avoid that kinda stuff - curiosity can't kill the cat if it knows it'll gain no satisfaction to bring it back.

    I don't know what I'm saying anymore, sorry.

    I've never been able to really get into social media. I have a few social media accounts, but I've never been active on any of them, mostly because I just have no idea what I'm doing.

    Same. Have been inactive for a few years on most of them now. I don't know how people can keep up with 5 social media accounts at the same time, I certainly can't do that.
