Guest Blog: Real World Conversations by Busy Walker ⏳🏃♀️
Hellllooooo Poptropicans! I am Busy Walker. (Formally Serious Walker, for some reason I thought that was my Pop name for 6 months…) This is my debut guest post, hopefully with many more to come!
Alrighty, so a bit of a background of what I aspire to write about. The world is a budding place with interesting events happening everywhere. My goal is to relate current world events to Poptropica. Also- every month things that have to do with that month. Once you start realizing what’s happening around you and relating it to yourself the better understanding you have of… well, everything.
March is quickly coming around the corner. The biggest current world event is the Russian Invasion of Ukraine. It is a terrible event, and almost uncomfortable to mention. It’s terrible. It is important nevertheless. Now, to its relation to Poptropica…
The Island you all know and love: Arabian Nights! A quick background of the island: There are 1001 thieves, ransacking this town while a king is obsessed with his riches. Over three islands, you find out about the thieves' background, and a genie is eventually released. He wrecks havoc on the town, and your mission is to stop him. You end up reuniting a father and daughter, happily ever after. Where am I going with this, you might ask?
Havoc. Just think about that word. It kind of brings up a weird mix of feelings. Most would say sad, for me specifically it makes me mad, when ‘havoc’ reigns. Like the Genie flying through town, you feel helpless chasing him. The situation happening over in Russia is similar.
Now to put a bow on it, it's a sad subject. A writing piece that makes you feel uncomfortable. But now here is the point: sometimes it needs to be said, stuff that isn’t 100% happy. Buuuuuuuutttt ending on a happy note is never a bad thing. Sometimes the world isn’t a peaceful happy Oasis, but the world always works together to get better, and slowly maybe world peace will be established.
Ok! So in March, Spring begins and with Spring there is Daylight Savings Time. You know it, you hate it. Make sure on March 13th you set your clock up an hour! So Seriously, Busy Walker (See what I did there?) This was my Monthly update, and it wasn’t exactly one of the more positive ones hopefully to come. Man, I should’ve started in February.
Now for your thoughts! Let me know what you think!
