Hi readers! I hope all of our American followers had a great Independence Day! I sure did, even got a personal record for the 4 km race that I've been doing for several years.
Later in the week, I finished watching the first season of Gravity Falls. I won't really post any spoilers, since I'm sure there are lots of people watching for the first time. If you are watching for the first time, remember: trust no one! The first season has been so much fun, and I've already started into the second season. I've got a feeling I'll be finishing the series really soon.
I've made a lot of progress through The Lord of the Rings this week as well. Gandalf has fallen in Khazad-dum and the Fellowship has journeyed into Lothlorien. I think I've got less than a week to move on to the next volume.
In other news, I am a bike owner again. Its been a long time since I had a bicycle and I'm excited to start using it for transport on the weekends. Now, I need to get some accessories so that I can be safe and carry groceries and such as well.
Lastly, Pokemon Go has been released in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and the U.S. so far. I feel like I've had not a lot of time to play, but have still managed to rack up 6 km of walking and have reached level 6. It's been fun to explore the real world, sometimes with friends, in search of magical creatures. The server issues have been frustrating, but I'm sure that will all get solved soon. In summary, its a lot more fun than Ingress, the previous game released by Niantec; and I recommend that you try it out if you think you would like an excuse to explore your neighborhood on foot and get to know some of the people who live near you.
That's all I have for this week. I'll update you all later on how the Pokemon hunting goes. Have a great week, and game on!
