Good day/evening everyone! I've finally finished my exams for the year and thought I'd celebrate by doing up my long overdue intro >.> So... here goes :D
I'm from Australia and, as of today, just made it through my first year of uni. Wow, how did that happen? XD Can't wait to make the most of my summer holidays now, free from study and with plenty of time to check pkmncollectors updates. ^^ Haha... of course I have plenty of other things on my to-do list to get through <3
I first got into Pokemon (if I can remember correctly) sometime in 2005, back when the R/S games were still for sale in Australia. Hence, I was introduced to the Hoenn region with my first ever Pokemon game: Sapphire. I was a complete amateur in this new world and was constantly learning new things about battling, which I guess is why I scraped it through the Elite Four AND Champion with only my Lv100 Swellow (and a whole lot of revives & full restores!). *Sigh* Things have definitely changed since then. My swellow will always hold a special place in my heart, though, since he was what made my first pokemon journey possible, and now he's happily sitting in my White game (I plan to transfer him to White 2 once I finish the game... another thing on my to-do list!).
And then, in early October this year, I discovered pkmncollectors for the first time. And once again, I have Swellow to thank. Huh? Well, I was bored one day and wanted to google "Swellow merchandise" images, saw one of Happyjolteon's old sales posts and.... ehehe, the rest is history (I did more googling) :3 So after making up my first LJ account, I became a pkmncollector comm member! ^o^
Aaand... this is my collection so far:( Lots of "pretty" pictures below! *cough cough*Collapse )
As I've said many times before, I'm having a great time being a part of this wonderful community (I keep asking myself, 'What took me so long to find this place?', lol). Thanks to you guys, I'm now a bit more knowledgeable about all things pokemon and have unprecedented access to Japanese merch thanks to Gin. A couple years ago, I wouldn't have dreamt of such a thing! I look forward to contributing more to pkmncollectors and making friends with people who share my passion for Pokemon (and I'll do my best not to break any rules <3 Just give me a nudge in the right direction~).
A big dream of mine right now is to go to Japan and visit an actual Pokemon Center. Oh boy, wouldn't that be fun? *sparkling eyes* Thank you all very much for reading this gigantic post! I'm glad I could finally get that out of my system XD
