I fake being sick or find ways to get out of things because some days I just feel so empty I can't do anything productive. I also can't help but feel numb to most things I used to enjoy, as well as even the the concequences of faking and getting out of things.
In the anime, Ash Ketchum was supposed to be a huge Pokémon fan before he left on his journey. But every time he sees any kind of Pokémon, he has to pull out his Pokédex because he doesn’t know what it is. Ash Ketchum was a poser before he left on his journey.
