Shit We Love: Neopets (final update!!)

We get it, you’re anxious. The world is supposed to end today and you haven’t received any end-of-finals closure on the affairs of our dear Slasla12. Let us fill you in.

1. Slasla12 has got her swagga back. Her intelligence is ‘bright’ (after all of these finals-on-finals-on-finals, we find that hard to believe), she’s feeling good, and she’s not even that hungry! We’re not really sure what’s on her head (we guess it’s not as weird as these hats), or what the deal is with that talisman-looking-thing around her wrist, but, all in all, things seem to be going pretty well in Neopia. We also have a petpet  named “Spooky.” Point of inquiry: what does one do with a pet’s pet? It almost seems like some form of Neopet inception…Neoception?

2. We learned that there are Neopian benefactors. And we thought we were finding too many ways to waste time. This is exactly as weird as it sounds: these people collect Neopoints to give them away. Philanthropy in Neopia? Seems a little off, but we’ll take it!

3. We are shocked by the number of people who have joined us in our Neopets escapades in the past  few weeks. Seriously, shocked. We initially made a Neopets account for the blog writers as a ridiculous way to waste time and put little thought into what would come out of it. We could have never predicted how many people we’d bring along the road of procrastination with us. The amount of enthusiasm we’ve received about this crazy endeavor has been overwhelming. It’s proven to be an excellent outlet for releasing finals-week stress and has allowed us to take a much needed trip down memory lane. Just goes to show how many awesome (nostalgic?) people go here. Who needs The Social Ivy (…lol) when you have Neopets?!

Well, that’s all for now! Have a great winter break being productive watching Netflix and look out for more Neopets updates in the future! Who are we kidding, this is all we’re going to do over break… Expect to hear from us very, very soon.
