Raising a Virtual Pet

Whether it's your annoying parents or pesky allergies keeping you from owning a real pet, you don't have to be too bummed out anymore. With the rise of electronic pets, anyone can learn to raise a furry best friend. Keep reading to find out how to take care of virtual pets!

Picking the Perfect Pet

One of the coolest things about virtual pets is that you can choose an animal that traditionally wouldn't be kept as a pet, like a panda bear or monkey! If exotic animals don't appeal to you, you can go with something a bit more mainstream like a hamster, bunny or dog. Most virtual pets take the same amount of care and attention so bigger animals aren't going to eat up any more of your free time than a little one is.

Taking Care of Your Pet

Unlike real animals, virtual pets don't need to be taken for walks or have their litter cleaned on a regular basis, but that doesn't mean you don't have to pay attention to them! Digital pets like Tamagotchis or Neopets need to be cared for, fed and loved. Instead of bestowing your animal with a giant hug or filling their bowl up with kibble, you care for your virtual pet by pressing various buttons on your pet's electronic case.

Socializing Your Pet

Virtual pets have come a long way since their debut in the mid 1990s. Back then pets had distinct personalities and you could feed them and give them treats, but that was about it. Today you can feed, groom, train and even socialize your pet! Many digital pets are able to connect wirelessly to other pets from their line so they can play together. So, if your friends have the same kind of pet as you, you can plan play dates!

It is much obvious that in this society nowadays smart people have the most advantages of being successful and socially acccepted based on their careers, position, personal success, fame, power and all that upper middle class stuff. But at the same time while being 'smart', they are also facing all kinds of stress and struggles such as trying the best at showing the perfect them to the society, mantaining all the success, fame and power all the time while the list goes on and on. But happy people on the other hand, or in other words, are happy because they live in the moment. They don't care , or don't need to care what others think of them because they are not living under the eyes and sayings of other people. They enjoy being themselves in their way. Although nothing is perfect, but they tend to make the best out of the many things. And they don't get easiy tired of trying to become the best of the bests, as most smart people tend to do.So if i would choose, i would rather be happy than smart. Well, then the 'smart' people you've spoken about are not really all that smart after all,  are they? Cuz if they were really all that smart they would've realised that they shouldn't care about what others think about them. Am I right? Great point ! Thanks for the reminder ! So what do you think about being smart or happy ?
