On The Horizons Of Spring (Happy Birthday Animal Crossing: New Horizons)

Good Afternoon, now before we get into the post, I just want to say that I’ve broken my own streak of only sharing post on Tuesdays this month, which actually happened unexpectedly, don’t ask why I’ve only been posting on Tuesdays, because honestly, I didn’t even notice myself until I shared last weeks post and saw the calender to all my postings this month, I guess Tuesdays were the days for March! The only reason I’m choosing to break my own streak is for two reasons….

1. To welcome the new season that we all know as Spring, my birth season as well and also to wish one of my all time favorite games a big happy birthday, for those that may not be aware, today marks 2 years that Animal Crossing: New Horizons made it’s debut after so many years of not having a main console game since New Leaf, I will always remember the unexpected announcement that we got when the trailer of New Horizons was revealed, oh was it an exciting feeling, just knowing that we were going to be getting a new game, although we had to wait another year for it when originally told it we would be getting it in 2019….it was defintiely worth the wait when the trailer showed March 20th 2020 and honestly it couldn’t have come at a better time as well!!

As we’re all very much aware 2020 was quite the year and not in the best of ways clearly with the whole start of the pandemic and having to go into lockdown, we don’t need to talk to much about it, but just the fact that, while all that was happening, New Horizons was the game that pretty much saved and helped a lot of people’s mental state and anxieties during those hard stressful times…..2020 was and let’s be honest, it was a quite shit year and for someone who doesn’t really swear much unless I feels the need to let emotions out strongly, although I always say the same 2-3 swear words all the time, me saying it that way really says it all when it comes to 2020….

it really wasn’t a great year, but despite that being said, there were some things within that year to help us cope and take our minds off things for a while and one of the big things to do that was the release of this game! Most of you who come across my posts already know how much Animal Crossing means to me, no matter how many times I try to explain my love for the series, I don’t think I’ll ever really be able to express it the exact way I feel it! On surface it doesn’t really look like the most appealing game, but there’s more to this game then I’m able to truly explain, but for those that do play it and see it the way I see it….

You guys are the ones that know exactly what I mean, Animal Crossing has always been the kind of game that is hard to explain and when trying to explain it, it always sorta feels weird, but one thing I’ve realized is that when you love something so much that you can’t even begin to explain, but you express so much passion for it and you know it shows, you find you don’t even need to try to explain it because it just naturally flows out of you so by sharing the things you love and that are of interest to you, you’re bound to get others to be interested and inspired to look into it and try it for themeselves even and that could be with anything really….

For me though it always starts with Animal Crossing, because I just love that game so much and I’m not just talking about New Horizons, but just the series in general! That being said the fact that New Horizons is 2 years old today and that it literally was released the same day that we enter the season of Spring….well that for one says a WHOLE lot on it’s own, not only did it arrive within a new season, but it also came into light when everyone needed it the most, call it “Perfect timing” if you like or “Coincidence” if you want, although I like to believe that there are no such thing as coincidences, that’s just me though!

To wrap it all up….like I said this game could not have arrived at a better time, it really gave people something to not only enjoy, but to help give light and hope during times of uncertainty and it’s for that reason, apart from loving the game as a whole why I want to wish Animal Crossing: New Horizons both a Happy Birthday and 2 year anniversary thank you for bringing hope to everyone that needed it at the time and continuing to be a game that people enjoy today!! I know this ones a short one, but in all honestly, I wasn’t expecting to write today, I thought about it, but I didn’t quite have anything in mind to write about, but I knew today was the 2 year anniversary of New Horizons so I thought why not!?

Hope you all have been enjoying your weekend, take care, stay safe and have a good rest of the day!

All The Love ❀ ❀

2 Years Of Blogging (Part 3)

Alright so this will be the 3rd and final part to my 2 years of blogging, I did originally write something already, but I haven’t yet posted it and i’m not sure if i’m going to post it, so whatever this post turns out to be this will be the part 3 of it, now in case you’re wondering what the other one was about, I was pretty much just about not really having a theme for this blog, it was kinda what I had already written within the second part to this and it’s kinda why i’ve not shared it yet, I didn’t want it to sound like I was repeating myself, even though it felt like I was so yeah……

I’m not really sure where I want to start on this third part, I probably could’ve left it at 2 parts, but in the moment of writing the second part of this post, I did feel like I had more I wanted to say and I thought it would’ve been too long of a post to say whatever it was I was going to say within two parts and so that’s why I said i’d make a third part to this…….

This blog really doesn’t have a theme with it as i’ve already stated this is just a place of expression, be it serious or just because I really want to talk and share something here, I feel like i’ve gone from writing whatever to really thinking of what I want to bring to this blog and so I guess that’s why I have all these different sections/categories for things, I want to always keep it interesting, even though i’m not actually sure what part of my posts you guys enjoy, sometimes you really don’t know what people are going to be interested in and so I find that when you just go with something just to see if it’ll stick I guess you can say or not, it can really be of help……

To be honest I never actually know what I want to bring to this blog, I just go with what feels right in the moment even if I may not always feel 100% about those ideas……with blogging there have been posts that i’ve written to where I thought “I probably shouldn’t have wrote that” and there have been some where I wasn’t sure if I should’ve written them, but found that it ended up working someway……it’s weird you know!?

With blogging/writing really one thing I like about it is that you can express however you want, it doesn’t have to be specific, I feel it’s easy if you don’t think too hard about it, you can just go with what feels right to you in the moment and if you ever want to change it up later, you can, at first for me it was to say what I felt I couldn’t at the time, now, when I look at it, I think how should I express today!? Most of the time, it turns out to be random, but I still have moments where I want to express on something that’s a little more deeper and kinda serious…….if you’re thinking of starting a blog,

but you don’t know where to start, maybe you’re not sure what theme you want if your a theme person, just go with what feels good to you in the moment, it doesn’t need to be specific, sometimes you find what your theme is a little later, maybe you’re not meant to have theme and you’re just suppose to go with it……inspiration strikes when you least expect it so until then just go with the feeling and see what comes out from it, because you never know what could work, but I do have to thank this blog for giving me a place to express when I felt I couldn’t at one point, if i’m being honest,

Having this blog, really did help me to express more and it’s for that reason that I guess I still have it and why i’ll do my best to stick to it, even when there are days where I have no inspiration or just don’t feel like writing, i’ll still have it, because I know that eventually there’s going to be something that I will want to share and I know this will be the place i’ll come to, to do that…..but to wrap this post up I just want to say thank you to those who have been apart of my blogging experience and for those who have just arrived and if you were here, but aren’t anymore, thank you as well for taking that time and being here for the moments that you were here for.

For those still apart of my journey here, I hope I can continue to bring you guys posts that you find interesting and some that you may find help at times, however you have enjoyed, I hope you continue to enjoy and all that in between, I think that’s all I have to say, if you read all of this to the end thank you and if not, it’s fine, I just wanted to express my thank you’s and that, but I hope you all are having a nice day and are doing well,

If you haven’t read the first and second part to this post, you can find them both here, you all take care and i’ll see you in the next one:
