Good morning!

Milo eating breakfast. I pause him at night, because I wake up later than him and I want to maintain the perfect care, to see if I'll end up with a perfect-care character. Which means that he's still only 1 year old. He just evolved into an UFOtchi, but that was after I transferred the pictures to my laptop, so now I'm lazy to take another photo.

Here you see him helping me with my thesis. :P

He's usually just rolling or floating around happily, but he also called me some times with no reason, or being moody, so I had to discipline or praise him. The discipline bar is a bit above the middle, which I think is pretty good for now. Every time I have to press "time out" he also loses a happy heart and I have to feed him a sweet to make up for the scolding. :P

I also couldn't resist starting up my P2 again, as well. There's a certain charm to the simple tiny shell and huge sprites, as well as the challenge of keeping the cute alien thingy alive for as long as possible. I like the character variety of the V2 and the different annimations but for some reason I keep coming back to the originals. So let me introduce you Maud (named after a lady who wrote another paper I was reading - I think I'm just gonna name my tamas after real or fictional archaeologists, for the time being :P ). I don't pause her at night cause I don't go for any particular character, so she's already two years old. She got sick unexpectedly today and I had to give her two shots. Otherwise, she's been a happy little onion and she's expected to grow a pair of feet by tomorrow - or maybe turn into a cute duck if I end up neglecting her a bit - we'll see.

Hey I have been so busy the previous days that I didn't have time to update the log.  :mellow:

I found a job, I'm now a waitress at a tavern on the seaside and I'm working full time while trying to finish university. It's quite tricky but I'm happy.

 

Meanwhile, I was taking my P2 tama at work, as little Maud wasn't very needy and I was checking up on her now and then, when I had time. We had some busy times at the tavern, running around with plates and glasses.  :D I was feeding her lots of snacks, which made her a chubby tama, because I didn't have time to play with her on the go. One day accidentally I put the caps of the beer bottles in the same pocket and they scratched the screen, fortunately a bit of Displex fixed that.  :o  I wasn't the best mom to her, though, so firstly she evolved into a teen duck and then she grew leaves and became an adorable Kusatchi. However, Kusatchi tends to have a shorter lifespan and be more needy, so she passed, aged 7. I found a little floating Obaketchi in my bag when I finished work yesterday.

I enjoyed running this one and I want to try again.  ^_^ I think I'm gonna pause it though, at least at the toddler and teen stages, when I'm at work. When it grows up, it can come with me again. Actually it's handy too cause I can check the time.

 

Meanwhile, Milo is still 2 years old because I was pausing him a lot, trying to get a perfect care character. Which means I only unpaused him when I could give him lots of attention. Given that my father and sister are in the house too, and I have a full-time job now, this is not a lot of time. Also I sleep till 9-10, which means I was pausing him at night as well. Yesterday I gave up on trying for a perfect care character because if I continue like this, he'll never grow. Right now he's a little chubby UFOtchi who sometimes trips and falls over, even though he floats in the screen.

Here you see Milo and Maud busking in the sun, some days ago.  ^_^

Actually I'd want to try a mini/chibi too but I absolutely hate Bill. Maybe an older version, if I find one in a good price on Ebay... I've read they have Ginjirotchi instead, much much better.

That sounds amazing. :D I would write about that.

Mini's are fun, too, but I'd say since you already have a P2, unless you really need a mini for the size just keep running that or get a P1.

Hahaha if you write about it, I want to read it. It doesn't feel that amazing, honestly, but I'm happy to make my own money for once.

 

Hmm I was thinking about it cause I heard they're hard to kill. I don't know, we'll see.

 

Quick update: Milo turned into a horrible care character, of course, after I left him several times in my bag with no food or snacks while I was working. I probably should have paused him... But still, he's pretty cute. :D

 

Here you see him on a bus ride...

Here he is eating and drinking after work...

And here I caught him playing hide and seek. :P

dE2xqc7.jpg awpscSN.jpg

 

I love his animations, I have to take some more pictures... He's adorable.

I basically didn't avoid getting a bad care character because I wanted to see if he would be very needy. I think he's not, and hasn't got sick either, but I'll try to get a perfect care character next time to compare.

 

Meanwhile, I also hatched this onion:

O12f8n9.jpg

 

I don't take very good care of it, but I don't take horrible care either. We'll see how it turns out. And, to keep the tradition, let's give it a name... It will be gender-neutral this time. I'll name it Onion. :P

 

Milo is currently 4 years old, Onion is 2. I paused Onion at work, but I took them both to dance class, fed and happy. They had no problem waiting for me for 1,5 hour.

Not exactly a log entry, but my boyfriend is here since the past week and I haven't told him about my tamas. Basically I paused them and put them in a bag cause I'm too shy to tell him. It's kind of silly, since he plays games that one could consider "childish" on the phone pretty often too, but I'm also thinking that he will judge me for the amount of money I've spent on them. I don't have a huge collection but the other day he was bugging me for a long time because I spent 1 more euro on something (I could have picked up a cheaper one). I know that if I tell him that my P2s were 20 each, he's gonna think I'm silly and that I throw away my money, even though I bought them months apart. Ehhh I'm not rich either, but I spend whatever money I have for stuff I like and sometimes I'm not that careful with it. There's a chance he'll move in - if he finds a job here. I like him but I'd prefer to continue living on my own, honestly. I don't know if that makes me a bad girlfriend. I value personal space, I like being alone most of the time. He finds that very strange, says he has never met anyone like that and that having company is always better. But it's either he moves here or we don't see each other for 2-3 months since bothof us will be working, and distance may kill our relationship.

 

Why am I writing all that here. I have friends in real life to bother them about it, it's just been in my mind quite a lot. I just started typing cause I wanted to say I've kinda missed playing with tamagotchis (and I'm expecting a V2 in the mail  :mellow: ) and ended up telling the story of my life once again.

Tell all the stories you want! It's your log. :)
And besides, sometimes it's easier to talk to internet friends than IRL friends, I speak from experience.

As far as everything you said, do what you feel is right. You know you better than anyone else, so believe in me who believes in you.

If you want advice though, I have a couple things to add:
I've been married to my wife for nearly 7 years, known her for 10. We never lived together before we got married, which is honestly pretty odd for an American couple nowadays, but it's what we both wanted. People think it was we both come from religious families, but really it was that we wanted to spend time with friends and by ourselves. People need space! I love single-player videogames and writing, and I can't do that with other people. My wife loves games like Myst and watching weird vlogs about organizing a room, and she can't do that with other people. We have dinner together every night & watch a show, we always spend Thursday afternoons/evenings together, and we hang out a fair amount on the weekend, but beyond that we're both very individual people. Some people think it's weird, but it's what makes us happy, so who cares what they think? XD

As for what you spend on tamas... oh man, let's sit down and talk about how much 20 years worth of collecting Transformers and other mecha stuff costs. XD BUT, I have a budget, and in our home, I pay all the bills and then can spend whatever I have left, and my wife then is free to save what she wants (since she likes saving money). What else are you going to do with the money? Sure putting it all in a bank somewhere keeps it around if you have an emergency, but if you've already got some saved, it's pretty moot. I know a lot of people would disagree with me, but my hobbies make me happy, and being happy is what makes life worth it! TAMAS ARE LIFE, IZA!!! XD

Anyway, here's the main piece of advice: COMMUNICATE ABOUT EVERYTHING. That's what makes relationships work! If something's bothering you, say so. It's tough when you're dating and you're worried that something you say might cause trouble for the relationship, but realistically speaking, could you go the rest of your life holding that inside? It won't get easier to say with time. Maybe he'll understand, maybe you'll have a fight. Doesn't matter, you gotta be true to you and say what's inside ya, because while relationships are built on compromise, the foundation of relationships is being true to YOURSELF.

Okay, all done. XD Sorry to dump a ton on your log. Feel free to PM if you don't want me to clutter things up. Good luck! :D

Yes, I'm exactly like that. I'm relieved that there are actually people in long-term relationships who behave like that... My boyfriend thinks I'm crazy. He can be alone sometimes but he never enjoys it. He tells me he'd always prefer to be around other people, even when doing something like playing videogames. Even when he's alone he turns on the TV so that he can hear someone talking in the background. Maybe cause he has never lived alone for more than a couple of months... I remember feeling a bit uneasy too when I first moved out.. Still, even before, I liked taking long walks by myself. He's also pretty nosy sometimes and this annoys me, I think he really doesn't understand the concept of "personal space", he says it's ridiculous and that I'm cold.

Agreed too. ^_^

Ah I'm working on that. A bit lost in translation. Yeah, it's a long topic, thanks for the advice.  ^_^

Good morning!

Well, technically it's noon, but I woke up late as always. :D

I just wanted to say I'm excited cause my new V2 came by mail today. It's so nice, the shell has a beautiful purple colour, while the inside and the buttons are dark blue. And it is in such good condition, so finally I have a tama that beeps loudly, with responsive buttons and nearly perfect screen. I'm not a perfectionist but for some reason I like that. :D I'm gonna take good care of this one.

Anyway, I am home alone and decided to hatch both my old and my new V2 together, so that they'd have a playmate. ^_^ Of course I was hoping for a girl and a boy so that I could marry them together, hahaha I haven't done that since I was a kid so I don't even remember how they do it.

 

P5D1lbE.jpg

(The picture doesn't do it justice, it's purple, not blue. Ahh I can't take one that shows its colour.)

 

In a minute two adorable blobs with feet hatched...

Aaaaand they are a boy and a girl! I named the boy Andy and the girl Apple, because, well, these were the first names that popped in my mind. Maybe I'll do the alphabetical thing, maybe not, I don't know.

I tried to give perfect care to both of them; I don't know if I succeded, at some point they dropped two hearts. But, well, they were so needy it was crazy to care for both while doing stuff around the house. :P

 

PwzZQo1.jpg

 

Playing. :D

 

They just evolved into Marutchi (Andy) and the starfish I don't remember the name of (Apple). Marutchi is one of my favourite characters so I was glad about that. They already have two friendly hearts, which means they are growing fond of each other I guess. I'm too lazy to take, edit and upload another photo. :P

Later I'm gonna take both of them to work, paused or unpaused, depending on how much work I'll have.

 

That's all for today! Super excited about my two new study buddies. :D
