Let’s Talk New Horizons (Animal Crossing)

Alright so I have attempted a few times at writing about Animal Crossing New Horizons and those times…..well……I just never quite finished them, but we will finally go and share some things with it today, now before I go and express on Animal Crossing New Horizons I just want to say that I was planning on writing a different post first, buuut then something happened and this one is going to be first written instead……..

Okay so New Horizons what can I say about it!? Well i’ve been playing this game for about two months now, I started on my Island adventure on the 11th of April even though the game made it’s debut on the 20th of March, for those of you that don’t know or have never played Animal Crossing it’s pretty different from the other Animal Crossing games we had before, however the heart of it hasn’t changed that much, so even though the series has evolved into something different instead of a town, it’s now an island,

the concept and everything that makes Animal Crossing is still there!! Now I can talk a whole lot about this game and the different things with it, but than we’d probably be here all day or so and i’m sure you all have important things to tend to so I won’t do that, I must say one of my favorite things about this game is not only the moments that you’d get from it,

but also the bonds and connections that you develop with your fellow islanders/villagers, it’s odd thing to explain, but if you ever played any of the Animal Crossing games than you know what I mean….. sometimes you find that you instantly are drawn to a villager without really knowing why and so instead of questioning it you just go with it, than you have those villagers that you know seem nice, but don’t really feel a huge connection to so you kinda just keep them where they are, as well as those that don’t really appeal to you all that much (a.k.a you don’t like them)

Then there’s the soft spot villagers/islanders as I like to call them where at first you don’t know what to feel when you come across them and so out of curiosity you invite them to your island so you can get to know them a bit more and you don’t think they’d be someone you’d become attach to or at least feel attach to, but you keep them anyway because you learn that you like them and so after having them around your island for a while,

One day you come across them and they’re having some deep thoughts and you’re curious to what they’re thinking about, could be anything (literally) and as you approach them…..you find that they’re thinking of moving, now in this moment you’re not sure whether to let them leave or have the stay, part of you wants them to stick around, but then there’s that part that…..doesn’t mind if they leave……and so after thinking on it for a bit,

You tell them…..they can go and you feel fine with your decision to have them venture out towards another Island……but then there’s this moment where you’re having a heart to heart and they thank you for being their friend and it’s in that moment you realize…..they truly meant a lot to you and you feel that deeply……..I say all this because well….. I had that moment today with a purple cat that you might all know very well named Bob,

He asked to move today and it was actually a pretty tough decision, didn’t think it’d be, but it was and i’m going to admit it…..I got a little emotional, but it’s because of what he said, I didn’t expect it, but as cheesy and lame as it is, it got me and I felt like such a nerd that a video game, better yet a villager that I never had before made me emotional….like…..WHY BOB!!!

I’m never going to forget this day….but most importantly, i’m never going to forget bob, he’s just a snack loving, bug friending……don’t ask (there’s actually a few of them to be fair) purple cat who was a delight to have on my island and to be honest….i’m going to miss him and his interesting character personality, he was one of my 3 villager move ins after playing for a while and i’m glad I got to get to know him so thank you bob, for being bob…i’m sure i’ll see you around eventually, for now you go enjoy those new snacks!!

Hope you get my letters, I sent two…..but for those who might still be reading, thanks for that, I know this is a weird post, but really this game means a lot to me and if I can express it deeply, I would, but this is long enough so i’ll just end it here, maybe i’ll make a part 2 post…….maybe….

Let’s Sit And Chat: A Topic I Didn’t Think I’d Discuss….. Not This Much Anyway

I started out with a good amount of energy and now I have no idea where it went or is…….where’d it go I do not know. Since my energy is no where to be seen, how about we just sit and chat and talk about some random stuff, it’s been a while since we’ve connected on a deeper level.

Today’s chatting session is all about the thoughts i’ve had today, the first and main one had to do with the spiritual side, why!? For reasons let’s just say…..also because I was just thinking about it today, my brain activity was more active today then it’s been for a while, I don’t think i’ve ever asked myself a million and one questions before, especially not upon this topic,

but recently i’ve just been really curious about it, when it comes to the spirit world it’s very interesting because we don’t really know all that much about it you know!? We do and we don’t at the same time, but we would be fools to think that it doesn’t exist, I mean some people may not believe in that whole thing, but there are some that do, we don’t really know exactly what is beyond this life, where do we go, what else is there!?

Also for those who have brains that freak out with this kind of topic, just stay calm okay, believe me I know the feeling of those questions, just breathe, everything’s okay, it doesn’t hurt to be a little curious. We all know about energy, I mean we are energy really, if you didn’t already know well now you do, although i’m sure you didn’t need me to say that…..when it comes to the spirit world it’s one of those things that our brains have a hard time comprehending because of the fact that, we aren’t really able to see it

Unless you have that ability to do so, this is for those who have that talent and yes people do have that ability, but people who are skeptics or have a different viewpoint, probably won’t believe that sort of thing is for real, but we won’t go too much into that, people can have their viewpoint and believe what they want or they don’t have to believe anything at all, everyone has a right to their own perspectives and everything.

Which is respectable, there’s a lot of things that we have not the slightest clue on, for example, the ocean it’s massive, we know that for a fact so we don’t know what exactly is deep within the ocean, we’re still discovering new and weird species there and who know what is able to live deep with the places we as humans have never been to because we wouldn’t survive trying to find out, the only way we would be able to is:

1. Become a species that is able to live deep down in the dark and unreachable bounds of the unexplored ocean

or

2. Try and make a submarine that is able to with stand the depths and dark unreachable bounds of the unexplored ocean.

The second one might be in works, I mean I wouldn’t doubt it, but you get what i’m saying, just like the ocean and most of science and unanswered questions of the world, just like those things the spirit world is also quite complex, but it’s not as well, sure there are unexplainable things to it and we don’t always know everything unless you become connected to it, but just to put it simply, just because we don’t know or are unable to see with our eyes to know how real it actually is, it doesn’t mean it’s not real……

It’s just very complex to comprehend and it’s something that most people would choose to stay away from, which is understandable because you do have to be careful with it, but I wouldn’t say it’s all bad. In someways it can be looked at as comforting……i’m not sure if that’s the right word I should be using because most people wouldn’t think so, but to some you feel better knowing or having that feeling that you have people who have passed on watching you, not in a creepy way or anything, but more in terms of,

Making sure you’re okay and doing their best to keep you safe and unharmed, as well as having you keep on track, even when you think you aren’t they tend to let you know “you’re fine and that it’s going to be alright”

It’s a very weird and confusing situation at times, but our spirit guides which i’m sure we all have, we just aren’t sure who ours are exactly, but we have them and they make sure we’re good and are always there to help when we need them even though we can’t see them…..have I said very complex already, because yeah this whole topics always leaves me mind-boggled, yet fascinated all at the same time.

I mean sometimes you’ll find you’re presented with a spirit of someone or plural for that matter from the spirit world that you wouldn’t expect to show up, yet they do and most times you’re left think “what, why and how” but then you learn that if that’s happening, it’s because they have a message of some sort for you and sometimes you’ll find they’re just wandering about either because their curious or because they just want to say hi and all that jazz, maybe…..it’s the balance of the thing let’s just say,

With one thing you need something else to hold it or keep it balanced out otherwise it just wouldn’t feel right, we need a bit of in between whatever that in between is.

What are some of your thoughts on this topic!?

Saturday Evening…..Part 2 (Oct 14, 2019)

Last time on the part one side of my Saturday evening post, I talked about something I didn’t like…..being mocked, let take a read back on that shall we!?

Recap: I knew they were joking and I know that I probably shouldn’t have taken it the way I did, which I will admit, gotta gain a little bit more of a backbone I suppose, but still if you’re just meeting someone for the first time, mockery is probably not a good impression starter, because you don’t know how someone will take it, had I known the guy for a bit of time and he did that…..it’d probably be different, but I had just met him and after that happened, yeah I made sure to keep my distance from him…..

but I know it was no harm done, i’m just not a fan of mockery, unless i’m really close to you and I know i’m able to throw it back at you, playfully of course, then i’m i’m fine with it, but if i’m just meeting you for the first time and you’re just doing that off the bat, to be funny……yeah I don’t know how i’m going to feel about you too much.

And we’re back, I know that was probably lame by the way, I wanted to try something different as an opener though, was it a sink or swim!? I have no idea, let me know your thoughts on it, you might actually prefer to forget it and hey that’s okay, I might actually look back at this later in time and think “Oh gosh, that’s bad, why did I think that was good!?” I might also laugh, because I tend to laugh at most of my lame attempt at things, well things I thought would work, but probably didn’t…..carrying on now (you’re welcome) finishing the rest of my Saturday evening and night post,

Yeah the bonding, connection experiment thing, didn’t work all that well, I mean there was someone I talked to, which was nice, the chats that we had, they were alright, I can’t say they weren’t, because we did talk for quite a while, now i won’t say we bonded, bonded, at least not in the way that I would normally connect with someone, but they were pretty cool to talk to.

Overall though, I just didn’t feel like I fit in with them all that much, I felt like I was just there, tagging along and nothing else, but that…..I did debate on going home straight after the movie was finished, but I thought let me try a little bit and see what else can happen, was it worth the stay!?

Meh….it was okay, I mean I chatted with someone, but if i’m being honest, I was kinda already done being there after a while, I just don’t think that was my scene or crowd, I felt like I stuck out so much being there with everyone, everyone just pretty much did their own thing, which is fine….

It just sucks when you’re within a group and feel like you’re not suppose to be there……..but it is what it is…..I did at one point get a little anxious, started to get a little green in the gills (queasy) I just wanted to say green in the gills because I thought it was cool, yeah haha. Moving on, I could’ve really used some mint/green tea on Saturday, but I had water with me so that kinda helped keep my stomach leveled.

by the way I wasn’t like that the whole time, it was just after everyone got together again when the movie was finished, my friend likes doing group photo’s after a big movie and when there’s a lot of people, luckily though, no group photo’s we’re taken, which was great because to be honest I wouldn’t had wanted to be in the photo and I know that sounds wrong to say, but I would’ve felt awkward had we took a group photo that night.

After everything was over, I came home and had a tiny, mini breakdown to myself, I couldn’t tell you why exactly, but yeah it kinda just happened, I ended up calling a good friend of mine, one of my best friends that I hadn’t spoken to in a while and yeah we had a pretty good chat, it was nice!!

We listened to some music, watched some videos, laughed it was good, we don’t always speak, but when we do it’s always good, we ended up having a 3 hour conversation on the phone, we started at 10pm and finished around 2….in the morning, yeah I know, crazy, that’s the latest i’ve ever slept in a very long while…….but again it was good talking to her.

Saturday was something, it wasn’t a bad time, but it wasn’t the best either, I got to sorta hang out with my old friend even though I barely saw him at the same time, only in the beginning, he’s more outgoing, with me it depends who i’m around, if I feel like i’m going to get along with you pretty well, I can be pretty outgoing, but if it ends up being how it was Saturday, there’s a strong chance, that i’m going to feel pretty awkward and might not talk all that much, but it was quite the experience I guess you can say……

All The Love ❤ ❤
