Good Afternoon, I know I wrote something a little bit earlier today, but I didn’t get the chance to tell you the other thing I wanted to say, what exactly is it you may ask!? Well before I tell you, first I just want to take notice of how not great I am when it comes to self promoting, this is nothing new, I do it with everything I do, especially when it’s still new, but when you’ve got something you want to share and want to let it be known, you kinda have to put yourself in the center for a moment so that people can hear you and understand you clearly and also hope for the best when expressing yourself and so that’s what I’ll be doing right now!
Now I’ve only been doing this for a week now, so I’m not really an expert when it comes to what I’m about to share, but it’s something that I’m finding joy out of and I’ve been trying to get the hang of it since I took the chance of giving it a go….to keep the long story short though, I just wanted to announce that I started streaming, my first stream was on the 23rd of June, however I can’t say “hey you should watch that one” because again still learning as I go….I forgot to highlight my first stream on twitch,
I didn’t really know you could do that until I saw that my second stream only had a day left on twitch and when my sister in law told me about it! So now that I know that…..I’ve been highlighting all my streams that I’ve done so far, I just finished my 5th or 6th stream about 2 hours ago and yeah it was pretty good, so far I’ve just been playing my favorite game of all time, you may have seen my write about it plenty of times, that game being Animal Crossing, but I do plan on adding in other games down the line, when I feel it to be right, but for the time being, I’ll just be focusing on Animal Crossing New Horizons!
I won’t have this post be too long, so I’ll just discuss whether I have a schedule to when I stream…..right now, I’m still working out the days on when I prefer to stream, but so far Fridays have been my set days of streaming and by that I mean it’s more likely that you’ll see my stream on a Friday, I’m debating on whether I should add Saturdays because I did stream this past Saturday….but other than that time, Saturdays are up in the air! Thursdays are a somewhat day that I also stream and then today which is Monday, I’m not sure if Mondays will be a day that I stream often, but I’m going to keep it in mind at least….but most definitely Fridays are the days that you will find me streaming the most!
When it comes to how many days I’d like to stream, I think I would prefer 3 days MAX and the Minimum 2, but again I’m still figuring that out as well, but I’m sure the more I continue to stream the more I’ll start to know what I prefer to do. That’s everything I wanted to share if you would like to come on by and watch me stream my favorite game Animal Crossing: New Horizons or you just want a place to hang out and chat or listen to something, check out my Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/thewanderingdaydreamer I tend to stream towards the afternoon so around half past one ish to about 4pm, however I only stream for about an hour and a half, 2 hours and a half max, unless I feel I really want to play, then 3 hours is my limit!
I may at some point throw in an early morning stream randomly depending on how I’m feeling (and if the audio in OBS is on my side) it’s unlikely that you’ll ever see me stream during the morning, but there’s a possibility it could happen and when I say early I don’t mean super early, I think if I were to ever stream around the morning time it would be around 10:30am-11am, but other than that, expect afternoon streams from me…..I don’t know I just prefer streaming during the afternoon, unless I have to do something during that time, then I would switch it for the morning if need!
If you would like to keep up to date on when I am live or just to see what I’m up to, you can follow me on my Twitter here: Daydreamer Lex I don’t usually tweet that often, but sometimes I do, it’s the only social media I have at the moment, plus I’m pretty active on there….I may or may not add some of my streams to Youtube eventually, I’m still on the fence about it, we’ll see….maybe I’ll see some of you around or at least chat with you, hope you all have a good one!
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!
Welp, we’ve arrived at a new month, Happy 1st of March everyone!! Hope you guys are feeling alright and that you’re doing okay….March already is starting to feel like it’s going to take a bit before people start getting comfortable with it, but it’s important that we do our best to try to get through it even if it feels a little hard to do at the moment…..anyway Happy Tuesday, can you believe Spring is almost here, because I can’t, I’ve got two more months left until my birthday (also the word birthday didn’t look like it was even a word for some reason) and I don’t even know how to feel about it…..but that’s not for another two months so I don’t have to really worry about it just yet so it’s all alright!
If I were to be honest to how I’m feeling today….I’d tell you that I don’t know because I honestly don’t know, I’m aware I’ve got a few things in my mind at the moment, but the start of March has kind of put me in a interesting we’ll say headspace, I feel okay, but I also feel a bit overwhelmed, but I’m going to try and take it down a bit and focus my thoughts onto something else and do my best to keep my nerves together somehow someway…..funny it’s about 12:30pm in the time of writing this and you’d think that it’d not be so bad, but today is surely taking it’s sweet time to the point where you feel it….it’s like you want it to hurry up, but you’re also saying to yourself “It just started why am I trying to already rush it!?” I guess it’s just one of those days….
Moving on to the topic of this post, because we’re in the month of March and we’re coming to the anniversary of it in a few weeks, I thought we’d talk some Animal Crossing, because well…..I already had it in mind to talk about so…..I feel why not!? The fact that we’re nearing Spring and we’re coming into two years that this game made it’s debut is insane…..everyone in the Animal Crossing world didn’t even think we’d get a new Animal Crossing series game until Nintendo decided to announce it unexpectedly blowing everyone’s minds when the trailer of New Horizons dropped!
I’ve been a fan of this series, for as long as I could remember and so just the realization that we’ll be coming to two years of Animal Crossing: New Horizons…..is just amazing!! Now I may not have started my island the day the game released, like how most people did, but you don’t have to start a game the moment it comes out to enjoy it, as long as you’re enjoying it, when you actually start it doesn’t really matter, you play when you feel it to be right! Now that that’s been said, we’re not actually here to talk about New Horizons exactly, but the second installment of Happy Home Designer that was only playable on the 3DS, Happy Home Paradise!!
I’ve actually been meaning to discuss, HHP for quite a while now, but I just didn’t feel it to be the right moment then, I’m not even sure if now is the right moment, but I wanted to talk about it so, I’m going to take it as it being an okay time to do so! Now I’ve actually played the first installment to HHP, Happy Home Designer and to give some thoughts about, I also felt Happy Home Designer to be okay, it wasn’t something that I neccasarily was in love with, but it wasn’t something I didn’t not like at the same time, if that makes sense!?
It was an okay game to keep it simple, I used to only play it every so often and then after a while, I just never picked it up from there, plus I wasn’t really into the whole Designing homes…..until I started playing New Horizons where it was more encouraged to do so, with decorating being more apart of the new series fully, so when the last big update happened back in November and we were told all the things we’d be getting…..Happy Home Paradise was not something I personally expected to be apart of that big update, until it was shown in the Animal Crossing Direct!
A lot of what we got in that Direct was not to be expected, there was so much that, you found yourself having to really take it in, I wasn’t actually sure if I even wanted to get Happy Home Paradise at first, with the knowledge of how much I barely even played the first game HHD, so I waited a while before actually deciding I wanted to give it a try and honestly I preferred Happy Home Paradise over Happy Home Designer, I guess it was because there was more to it and it allowed you to be more creative and step out of your comfort, especially if you’re someone that isn’t all for designing, it allowed you expand on something you already had knowledge of and just see what you can do with it!!
Me telling myself and thinking you know what “I want to see what this game has to offer and what’s different about it, so let me download it, it doesn’t hurt to give it a try” by taking that chance and seeing where it went and what the creators did with it….it gave me an experience that I didn’t even expect and honestly it was very exciting and nerve wracking….I say nerve wracking for the simple fact of….I wasn’t confident in my decorating abilities, I barely know what to do with my own home in my Animal Crossing game so, I honestly wasn’t sure how I was going to do designing a villgers home……
and before it’s even said, yes I am aware that it’s just a game so I shouldn’t really being feeling anxious of making a home look nice in it, but Animal Crossing is my life, I love this game with every part of soul and body and luckily you can’t actually see me, because if you did you would see how hard I’m trying to hold back my emotions, yes I know weirdo here, but honestly that’s how much this game means to me…..also you don’t know it, but you will now…..I’m getting annoyed with myself because of how emotional talking about it is making me, it is what it is and I shouldn’t be ashamed of it, not that I am!
Anyway you’ve heard me speak about this game loads of times so those who look forward to reading my posts will know how much I love this game!! I never knew you could feel so much for something that isn’t even real first off haha, but you still are constantly drawn to it……Animal Crossing has always been a game that I could turn to whenever I felt I couldn’t be who I felt inside to be, it’s hard to explain, but…..it’s my home away from home….no matter what is going on….even if I did take time away from it, I knew that it was always going to be there to welcome be back……as most of you know…..I don’t do words right most times…..so it really does take a lot in me to finally get what I want to say out, even in real life!
It’s something I actually worry about a lot, whether what I’m saying is coming across well or if it’s even being undersood and even though I’ve improved a lot better in communciating my feelings and that….it’s still hard for me, so I always do my best to take my time when I need to express something, for most people a post like this might only take them an hour or maybe less, but for me….it’ll probably take 3 hours or so, I can write less, but when I feel I need to really say things that’s when it’s more!
To get back on track though….this game has helped me through so much to where I can’t even explain it to you, so that’s why I will always talk about it, because it was the first game that I got into that allowed me to be myself and not have to worry, it gave me something to experience, it is a weird game, but it’s a weird game that I love and I will continue to speak about until I can’t speak about it anymore….but back to Happy Home Paradise…I love it, do I play it all the time, no, not really, but when I do push myself to head on over to the Happy Home Paradise island, I always enjoy myself and leaves me inspired without knowing I was inspired!!
I’ve made some interesting homes, some were great in my eyes and some I know still needs work, like I actually need to speak to some of the villgers whos homes I’ve decorated to change it, but I only play it when I’m either really wanting to because it’s been a while or when I’m feeling inspired, I barely go on that island, but that’s also because I’m too worried about my own island and what I want to do with it, right now inspiration is not quite up there, but whatever burst of inspiration I have, I go with it when I’m feeling it in the moment and it’s kind of been like that in real life too if I’m being honest, it’s not something I like to admit, but it’s the truth which is why I don’t post much everyday…..
This series Animal Crossing, anything I was afraid of…..it helped me to not be afraid of it, but it also help give me a voice, it was my company when I didn’t have much company and I like to see it as my good luck charm, it’s the one thing I’m always talking about and you know what it’s okay because it means that I’m really passionate about it! It was the one game that I never thought I’d ever understand even though it honestly is quite simple, yet at the same time it was something I always felt I needed to play, like it was a calling of some sort!!
I just love this game as well as Happy Home Paradise, the series as a whole, brings me so much joy even when I can’t see it sometimes, because real life is kicking in, but I always feel grounded with it and that’s what I appreciate about it!!
It seems like a fairly easy thing to do yeah!? Yet somehow you find it’s not actually quite that simple, see the way I see organization is to list everything that I have in mind to do and then pick the one that I want to do most throughout the list, not the most efficient way to do things and really get the most out of the day, but honestly that’s the truth to how I tend to organize myself.
I’m usually someone who wings a lot of things, I’ve said this before and I’ll most likely keep saying it until I’m blue in the face or until I eventually sort it out, but planning is just a very hard thing for me and it’s not that I don’t want to plan anything, but the concept in my mind as simple as it may be….I just find it quite challenging! Whether I’m trying to work out the day or really think of a solution to something that is very important and needs sorting…..I don’t plan the way most people plan and if I’m being completely honest here, I’m not the greatest decision maker, I always do my best to make decisions, but I know that it’s one of my things that’s still being worked on!
I have gotten better, I mean if you met me before, not that many of you have met me now and I mean actually met me, but I was a lot worst at making decisions then compared to now and speaking of that, really looking at it now…..I have gotten better with it through time, at least I feel I have anyway, is it something I’ve mastered…..no, not at all….am I better at it completely? For the most part yes, but it’s still a work in progress and that’s something I can say I’m not afraid to admit! I normally would use this kind of post as a positive way of explanation and by that I mean doing my best to help you “Organize the day” with by giving some pointers if you want to call it that if it’s something you too are having trouble with, but I thought instead of doing that,
I’d tell you how shit I am at planning things, I mean I don’t even know what to do whenever my birthday rolls around sooo there’s that! However, I’m not going to call it a weakness of mine at least me now won’t, we all have things that are a little more challenging to us then what it’s like to others, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t still improve on the things we’re finding ourselves getting a bit lost in, because the way I see it is….
There’s different types of planning, you may not be the best at planning parties or any kind of social gatherings, but there may be something within you that you’re either not aware of or that you feel doesn’t count and you’re just doing whatever it is you’re doing, but you’ll find that other people have taken notice of how well you do a certain thing and how well you’re able to lay it out without realizing, for you it’s a natural thing….however for others, it’s something they would’ve never thought of! We all have our own way of figuring out what goes where and how to set it out properly, it may take a while for some, while others might get it like “snap” that!
Some of us may need to explore and see what we’re working with in order for us to gain some kind of solution and really understand, so that we have the knowledge or at least a little bit of it, to move forward in confidence with whatever the next part is! It’s like video games….hear me out…..when we’re playing a video game for the first time without knowing anything about it….what is that we do?…..we explore our surroundings and see if we can get information in some way about the objective at foot.
Now most of us will look into every nook and cranny (ha) continuing sorry not sorry…..until we’ve found something new, there are games that have specific goals that need checking off, while others will let you explore without any prior knowledge about what’s actually meant to be going on, yes you have your story with it, but it’s up to you to unfold what’s ahead of the game all while trying to understand what message it’s trying to convey!
Now how you choose your gameplay to be when exploring and discovering, will help to give you the idea and answers you’re looking for! It’s pretty much stuff like that….I don’t mean with real life situations, although you do have those random occasions where you can use video games and life in the same sentence, but I’m just speaking on the planning and decision making aspect of it, it’s not always that way, but it can help to possibly understand better and use what you get from it in someway or form!
I know that it’s been quite some time, but I recently recorded a new episode on my podcast, it’s the first episode back since my last episode as well as the first episode of 2022….now it’s not what I originally wanted to return with, but I felt it would’ve been a bit odd to record a new episode on something I enjoyed knowing I hadn’t recorded in 2 months…..plus I wasn’t really feeling quite energetic today, so I ended up turning this post into an episode….sorta, it’s a bit different to what I’ve written, honestly I should’ve just read what I wrote because my nerves started getting to me while recording so if it sounds odd you know why, hopefully it’s okay, but here’s the episode: https://anchor.fm/lexa-marie3/episodes/Getting-Organized—-Where-To-Start–Blog-Post-Ep–47-e1e3at5
Happy Late New Year….it's been a good while since the last episode, you would think that I'd know what I'm doing and yet here I am with heighten nerves trying to share some thoughts with this episode! A bit of a rough start back, I'll admit, but I shall do my best anyway, so without further ado, let's have a bit of a chat!
Good Afternoon! Even though it’s still technically morning, but it’s also close to the afternoon! Hope you’re all having a good start to the week and that you enjoyed your weekend!! Happy Monday, you know I must say, if I’m being honest Mondays kind of leave me with mixed feelings….some days I actual enjoy it and don’t mind it much, but I also have days where I’m feeling like Garfield the cat thinking to myself “Mondays” I think most people feel that way though when it comes to Mondays usually, where it’s either a hit or miss at times!
I personally don’t consider Mondays to be all that bad, it just depends on how the day is going or how it feels, but I say we should show the day that starts our week a bit of love, I mean it kind of has a bit of a charm to it wouldn’t you say!? To each their own I guess, anyway…..you might be able to tell what this post is going to be like and what it’s about, today I want to talk about Animal Crossing, because if I’m being honest, it’s who I am inside and I love talking about it! I don’t know what it is about this game, but it just always brings so much joy into my life, I can go away from it for a while, but it’s always going to be the thing I come back to and you know what!?
I don’t mind it and I hope that it’s okay and if it’s not well then…..that is perfectly alright, I’m still going to share upon it anyway, because I can’t help myself, it’s what I love and I’m not ashamed to admit that!! Okay now that I’ve got that all out of my system…kind of….let’s discuss the group stretching that Nintendo brought back to us after sooo many years, for those that never played this game or aren’t familiar with the Animal Crossing series, back when the game first released and when I say game, I’m talking about the very first Animal Crossing off the GameCube (What a gem that console was…..that might just be my opinion though)
We were given a lot of cool features, one of them allowed you to get up early and join in on a nice workout session with some of the villagers in town, which was called morning aerobics, literally you had to get up early in order to catch this one, but if you happened to miss it, well then you’d just be watching the villagers work out, if you made it on time, I personally never tried this, I didn’t know at the time that they even had these cool things you can actually join in on, it was after I hadn’t played it in years that I learned about it, I always wanted to experience it though, but then again I didn’t really understand the concept of Animal Crossing back then either…..it wasn’t until New Leaf that I really fell in love with game and started to understand fully what it was actually about!!
So even though I didn’t quite get the game all those years ago even after trying them out and being frustrated and confused on what I was meant to do….it was always this thing I found myself becoming drawn to not really knowing why exactly I was so drawn to it…..but it always left me feeling happy and excited whenever I heard about it, eventually I got the game and the rest is history!!
Back to the group stretching part of this blog…as already stated, Nintendo gave us back something that a lot of people enjoyed from the older games, although it’s called something different, it’s still the same concept to the original! I’ve done the group stretching in New Horizons about 3-4 times now I’d say, the first 3 was just using the buttons which was quite hard, believe it or not, I say that because you have to time it properly otherwise it’s going to look a bit funny, the best way to explain it is….it’s kind of like a rhythm game, It’s the got the same mechanics as if you’re playing Bust a Groove, only you’re there for about 5-10mins max!!
If you even slip up once, just prepare to be lost, while everyone else is in sync and you’re there looking like an Octopus with no control of it’s arms…..okay that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s pretty much like that as well lol! If you’re someone that likes everything in a fashionably order and you love to see everything synched up nicely…..just know you’re going to feel slightly triggered when it’s not like that, mind you I’m just talking about the buttons….I haven’t even gotten to the whole motion side of it yet…speaking of that…..I tried that for the very first time today, group stretching with the motion option using the controllers (you only need one controller by the way)that was….an experience…..but it was a fun experience, I enjoyed it….although I wasn’t quite on beat with everyone, but then again….I’m not really that coordinated with a lot of things, hence why I never played sports back when I was in school….
Had I played a sport….it would’ve been Football (Soccer) or badminton (fun fact on me just learning that this is an actual sport and not just something that was played for fun) would I had played it as a sport if there was a team….maybe, but also no, I think I prefer to play it just for fun to be fair, but football (Soccer) I would have definitely considered trying out had I played a sport
Back to Animal Crossing, regardless to my coordination for certain things, that doesn’t mean I won’t still try my best, now if you were to ask me….which do you prefer buttons or motion!? I would pick motions, for the simple fact that, it’s fun….yes the buttons are fine, but it’s called group stretching which means you need to move, yes I’m not always timed perfectly with everyone….but even when I’m not, I still have a good time doing it, plus I feel the motion option to be a better way to really feel like you’re really participating as well as really bonding with some of your villagers and the NPC’s that join it, most importantly, by choosing the motion option, you’re giving your body the exercise that it needs which means you’re caring for yourself, yes it’s a quick and light workout, but if it’s something you can have fun with, why wouldn’t you want to join in on the fun!?
You have to admit that, it’s pretty flipping cute seeing the villagers and everyone having a good time group stretching, by the way sometimes the villagers and NPC’s go off a beat as well so if you look a fool you won’t be a fool alone which is great!! That’s my thoughts on the Animal Crossing Group Stretching mini game whatever you want to call it!!
What are your thoughts, have you played the group stretching mini game!? If so do you prefer using the button option or the motion option!?
I was going to to add the videos of each group stretching, but I’m unable to share the video as I don’t have the proper plan for it, so instead I hope you don’t mind the still photos of it! No need to fret though (not that you are) as I’m sharing it on my twitter so, if you want to see both examples with the actual video (button option VS motion option, you can find it here: Daydreamer Lex (that’s the twitter I use for these posts and the only social media I have at the current moment)
Good Evening! Hope you’re all doing well! We’ve come to the end of the week which also means we’ve just finished the first week of November and are headed towards the weekend and will be getting ready for the 2nd week ahead! I’ll admit it’s still a little shocking that we’re in November, I mean the last days of October we’re literally well last weekend, hope you all had a good Halloween by the way if you celebrated it at! I didn’t really do much on Halloween, just stayed in…..to be fair you don’t really do much other than going door to door asking random people for free candy…..it’s pretty much all there is to the holiday if you really think about it, at least the tradition of it anyway!
However if you’re the kind to see it more than just that and you celebrate the deeper spiritual side of it than it might mean something more to you and if so it’s a different story ain’t it!? That being said, I know that it’s not always about the candy with Halloween, most people enjoy it for the decorations, costumes, the feel of it even, I guess it all depends how you choose to celebrate it really, for kids they probably love it for the candy mainly, but also the costumes…..I mean what kid doesn’t like to dress up, better yet what kids doesn’t like getting a whole load of candy!? That’d be the real question,
If you were to create a poll on what everyone’s favorite thing about the spooky season is well then you’d be in for a load of many different answers, wouldn’t you!? We all know Halloween has a bigger story to it, beside the candy, costumes, decorations all that jazz, but most of us don’t tend to focus on the actual reason of Halloween just the fun stuff you can do with it, but yeah I don’t really know why I’m going on about Halloween during November, I mean it was last weekend, why is October coming in to head, I’m not sure…..guess there was a few things that I wanted to say with it!
Into November though….what can we say about it, well we were on Monday and now we’re on Friday which will tell you how quick this week went by, the first of November had a bit of both pretty alright and not alright at least for me, the rest of the days wasn’t so bad…..I mean one good thing is that we got the new Animal Crossing update, although it’s release happened a day earlier than expected, well two days early if you want to get technical, I mean we were meant to be getting it today on the 5th of November at least it was announced to be released on the 5th, however Nintendo had other plans in mind and had the thought of “You know what would be grand, if we just dropped the update two days early, that would surely catch everyone off guard and have them losing their minds”
Which they were right about about I didn’t learn of it until yesterday, but once I updated my game, I barely knew what to do with myself when experiencing all the new things we had gotten…..it was quite the chaotic, but not the chaotic day in the Animal Crossing world, although we had the update come to us early, we did have something to unbox for the 5th of Nov that being the second installment of Happy Home Designer off the 3DS, but the newer version of course that is Happy Home Paradise, which I plan on getting, just not sure when exactly I want to get it, but it’s in the wish list!
So that’s kind of what November has brought so far….there’s been a few other things as well, but for the most part, this week has been okay, sure there’s been some slight changes with it, but it was still an okay week I feel! We arrive to another weekend and then on to another week, but before we get to that second week, for now let’s just enjoy the weekend as it comes, hopefully it’s not been too bad of a week for you guys, if it was a bit stressful or was a bit rough starting, I hope you’re able to enjoy a nice chillax weekend with all your favorite things waiting for you, but if it was a good week for you, well I still wish you all a well deserved chillax weekend as well!
I recently uploaded a new Podcast episode, it’s a bit of a short one compared to the other ones, but if you guys are interested it’s up if you want to check it out!
Good Evening….Hope you guys are doing well! In today's episode we talk a bit about the month of November and how it's been so far even though we're still in the first week of it, as well as some Animal Crossing and it's early update release that decided to drop during the late evening on the 3rd of Nov….it's a bit of a short one this episode, but I felt I wanted to check in with you guys and share some thoughts!
Good Morning and Happy Saturday! We have arrived to the weekend finally, I don’t know about you guys, but it felt like the week was both long and short, not sure if that makes sense, but it’s just been a week lets just say! I hope that you’re all doing okay though and that regardless to how long and short this week felt to me, I hope it was at least good for you guys!
One good thing to happen during this week though was a very special and unexpected moment which happened within the Animal Crossing Direct yesterday on the 15th of October…..if you’re not familiar or maybe you’re not into video games or just Animal Crossing you might be new to this information or you might have already heard a bit about it, but still aren’t interested which is completely alright! For those who have heard the news and are a fan of the game in someway or form, then you are quite aware of all the goodness and beautiful things that will soon be arriving to us next month!
To explain it would be hard to do, at least here anyway, I have thoughts and feelings to it all, but I need to gather them properly to be able to give them all out in the best way, although when it comes to Animal Crossing, my favorite video game series it’s hard for me to keep calm, because I just love it so much! You can’t even see me right now as I’m just sitting here writing all of this out for you guys, but if you did….you would see me still trying to process everything from yesterday’s Direct, but like I said it would be too much to explain here so, plus I haven’t even jotted everything down that will be coming soon in the game, plus other things that I happened to miss from the Direct, which was quite a handful to be fair, I’m still learning things from it lol!
So what’s going to happen!? This post is just to say what’s to come for the next post that I’ll be sharing, I used to write these kind of post before, but I haven’t done one in quite a while so I thought I’d write one today! I’ll be recording an episode upon this topic on my podcast sometime next week, I’m thinking of recording it Wednesday! There’s some other stuff that I want to talk about for Monday, plus I’ve been doing a lot of these video game announcement thoughts episode so I thought I’d switch it up and give it a bit of a break at least until Wednesday and then I’ll find something else to talk about for Friday and maybe Saturday!
I mean we are still in the spooky month and I’ve been meaning to talk about some movies and add some music topics in there to go with the Halloween season so I want to at least finish this month with those things, I’ve been switching things around lately especially during this week so I would like to get some balance in there with recording and posting on here, so keep a look out for my Animal Crossing Direct episode where I talk about everything I felt and what I’m most looking forward to with this upcoming update we’re getting because man did they give us a lot of thing in yesterday’s direct…I’m super excited for this…it should be good so stay tune!
Happy Friday Everybody!! We’ve come to the end of the week and beginning of the weekend, who else has let out a breath of relief I know I have, I don’t know about you guys, but it seems like this month is going by both slow, yet also pretty quick….is that weird to say!? I mean we’re still in the beginning process of the month, however we are heading towards the middle of the month as well, we’re literally half way there practically lol!
This week has been…..something, now when I say that it just means you can’t quite put your finger on whatever it is your saying something to, there is that specific thing to it if that makes sense!? Overall it has been quite the week hasn’t it! I’m not going to lie I’ve been feeling a bit nervous this week, I don’t know if it’s because I know I’ll be getting my second vaccine Sunday or because of other things, probably a mixture of it all if I’m being honest, but as Isabelle would say in New Horizons “Give yourself a pat on the back you made it to the end of the week” something like that anyway!
Speaking of games, let’s talk a bit on what you’re probably here for shall we!? First up I just want to say that I already recorded my thoughts on these topics, I’m just adding anything that I managed to miss or just recently found out about so that’s what this post is…..so anything I said within my podcast episode I won’t be saying too much on here, I’ve scheduled the episode to be up a bit later today so once it’s officially up that is when I’ll share it!
Real quick I actually had something else in mind that I wanted to record for you guys, but Anchor is being a bit, troublesome today well my microphone is anyway, although it let me record this episode early this morning that I was actually going to share tomorrow and what I was going to record today was supposed to be up for today instead, but I guess this episode wanted to be up on a Friday instead of Saturday so change of plans…..the episode was going to be music based, I was going to challenge myself to speak about an artist that I listen to often, but is a bit out of comfort to share my thoughts on, but I shall leave it for another day and hopefully by then I’ll get to share this amazing artist with you guys!
Back to video games…..we all know by now I presume that Sora from Kingdom Hearts will be joining the Smash Ultimate roster and how excited everyone is about that really big news, we also know that he was the last challenger to be added to the game which means no more other challengers to unexpectedly show up and join the fight, it’s a bit bittersweet that we’ve come to the end of finishing up Smash, but we all knew that at some point it was going to happen!
Now I just recently found out that Sakurai the director of Super Smash will be taking a break now that the last character has been revealed within the game, I did a little research and I knew Super Smash Bros Ultimate came out a few years ago, but I just didn’t realize how long it actually has been…..2018 is when this game released and it took 3 years…..3 YEARS……to complete Super Smash Ultimate’s roster!! If that’s not both insane and mind blowing I don’t know what is!?
Sakurai has been at this game for so many years not including Ultimate, we’ve had so many Super Smash games come into our lives and to see the transformation of it to what it was and what it is now…..you wouldn’t even believe it, so YES Sakurai definitely deserves a long rested break, I mean he’s work tirelessly without much of a break just to finish this game! Now I understand everyone getting emotional and feeling the way they feel, because it’s been a very long journey in the Super Smash franchise and so it’s an important event in the Nintendo world….
So I shall say a bit of what I said in the episode, but a bit better….Thank you Sakurai for everything that you have given us with this game, thank you for putting your heart into something and sharing it with everyone, I hope that you have the most deserved break and whenever you decide you want to return I just hope that you feel the most refreshed that you’ve felt in a while and if this Smash game is to be the last again thank you for giving us something to be able to enjoy for generations and generations, I don’t know what you are thinking about for your next journey, but whatever it is, I hope that it brings you much joy and happiness, but for now just take care of yourself, see you when you return!
My latest podcast episode is now up is you want to check it out, take care and have a good weekend!
In case this is appearing as Episode 42 instead of Episode 43, I don’t know what’s happening, when I shared it earlier it said Episode 43…..hopefully it updates itself and changes back to the original episode I posted….I’m going to give it a day and wait to share both this post and podcast episode on my Twitter, until this glitch clears out! Here’s the link to the actual episode if you guys want to check it out: Let’s Talk: The Final Ultimate Character Joining The Roster & The Upcoming Animal Crossing Direct Ep. 43
Let's Talk: The Final Ultimate Character Joining The Roster & The Upcoming Animal Crossing Direct Ep. 43 –
Happy Friday, Hope you're all well! In today's episode we will discuss the final character added to the Super Smash Ultimate roster as well as doing a little prediction (sorta) giving some thoughts on the upcoming Animal Crossing Direct that's due to arrive next week on October 15th and sharing my excitement on what's to come with the latest update!
Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! Hope you’re all doing alright and although late, I hope you had a good weekend as well! Now before you think I’m about to tell you who on earth the final Super Smash character added to Ultimate is…..I just want to it to be clear that I still have to learn who it is! I’m just writing out my final thoughts before it is announced who is shall be!
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m quite excited to see who Nintendo has decided will be the final character to be approaching and added to the Super Smash Ultimate roster…..update: I hadn’t yet finished this post before I saw the reveal, I started writing this early morning, but didn’t get to quite finish! I recently just learned who the last final smash character is, now in case some of you have yet to see it….I won’t go spoiling it here, although I ended up getting spoiled on the new added character myself I’m not going to do that to anyone else…..note to self, don’t go on Twitter the day of special announcements that you’re looking forward too…..always a big mistake!
Now even though I will keep away with the spoilers here, I will reveal who it was and give my honest thoughts and reaction to what I felt when I finally saw the trailer earlier tomorrow on my podcast so if you would like to check that out, just stay tune to my thoughts on that! I know I could just tell you who it was, but before I do that, I want to make sure that I give my best thoughts to the reveal, plus I kind of already decided to have my reaction as a podcast episode anyway, hence why I’m not saying everything here!
Sorry if this is a short post, originally this was supposed to be my before thoughts to who the character was going to be before the actual reveal happened….buuut seeing that I went onto twitter forgetting that we were getting this announcement earlier today….my fun guesses are now invalid sooo this is now an update post, well slight update anyway! I’ll write another post tomorrow after I’ve recorded the episode talking about Super Smash with any other thoughts that I might’ve not said in the episode already! You guys have a good night!
I’m going to try not to have that song in my head…..but I was trying to say what’s to come without spoiling anything in case some people haven’t gotten the chance to watch the direct yesterday that Nintendo showcased, although I’m sure most already know what bird I’m on about here! Just in case though I’ll do my best to not spoil the news, but what I will say is that I’m very excited, I’m so looking forward to getting this new update!
It’s been a whole year since we were given Animal Crossing New Horizons and although it too as long as it did, for us to get this update, I’m happy nonetheless, because we did eventually get what we have been wanting and I feel it’s just going to be good from here going forward with Nintendo, even if sometimes it may take a little longer I will forever love Nintendo for surprising us yesterday with the announcement that was made!
October is going to be a good month in the Animal Crossing community, now I will probably do a podcast episode about this as well, sharing my reaction to the news when I saw it and how I felt when I saw it, even though I chose not spoil anything on here, there will be spoilers in that episode regarding the upcoming update and what to expect from what I know of course!
I will also be giving my thoughts to what I feel they’ll have going with this new upcoming update that we will be getting in November from the announcement that we will be getting next month, so it’ll be a bit of predicting that I will share in the episode! I don’t know if I’ll do it today, as I already have an episode scheduled, it’s actually up now if you would like to have a listen, I’ll share it in just a moment!
Stay tune for the next episode talking about my thoughts on the Nintendo direct as well as what will be arriving in the next Animal Crossing update (That will be the main focus of the episode) I’m sooo excited and I can’t wait to share it with you guys! For the time being you can check out my newest podcast episode here:
Let's Talk: Life Control, Care Packages & The Start Of Fall Ep. 40 (Re-Upload from Sept 24th) –
Happy Thursday (Friday) and Day 2 of Fall!! In today's episode I thought we'd just let whatever we felt come out, there's a lot of different topics talked about in today's episode!
