she said I'm too old for pokemon and I can't bring my games to university!
she said I'll have no friends if I spend all my time playing an antisocial game
I tried to explain that you can play it with your friends
and that I would only play it occasionally when I wasn't studying or with friends
but honestly why should I stop doing something I enjoy just because it's considered uncool and for little kids

I ended up telling her I wouldn't play it in university so she would buy me white 2 today
it's been pre ordered already but I don't want to clean out the piggy bank

That is so stupid. The whole point of university is to be on your own and make your own decisions. Bring it anyways!

This may be a silly question, and please don't take it as a criticism, but isn't university the point at which you more or less officially move out of your parents' authority, anyway? Not for tax dependencies or anything but... well, you *are* living on your own, and most likely working a job to pay your way. I assume "bringing your games to university" means you'll be getting a dorm or something. I don't think Mom gets to tell you what to do when you aren't "living under her roof" anymore. sweatdrop

If you're going off to college, you're an adult who can make decisions for yourself. If one of those decisions is choosing to play a game you find enjoyable then she can't stop you. Simple as that.

I play on campus everyday. works wonders during those breaks that are too short to go chill at home, yet too long to stay on campus doing nothing.

Jeez, this makes me glad that my mom is chill and even plays Pokemon with me... Tell her that most Colleges and Unis have Pokemon clubs, all the ones I've been to/looked at have. It's a great way to make friends easily!

yes you're right but when I say my mom is crazy I mean it
she would hide or destroy my games to stop me from taking them if she had to :/ I'll have to be careful

yes I told here I could join a pokemon club :/
she's just always wanted a popular daughter that wears trendy clothes and likes shopping and make up and is always out with her friends
I honestly have like 2 friends that are girls :/ and I'd rather play pokemon than shop anyway
which is good because I won't have the money to go shopping anyway razz

I don't know why some people hold expectations like that for their kids. Isn't enough that they are good people and try their best D: I digressed, sorry! Have fun with your new game and if you have the spare $3 get the Dream Radar in the eShop, it makes it even more fun c: And enjoy Uni, Pokemon and Anime clubs are a ton of fun heart
