Now, I don’t know if I ever mention it on here but, I’m a huge Animal Crossing: New Leaf fan. A lot of people say it’s a kids game, true I won’t argue that, but I find it very relaxing to play. I would not recommend this game for people who are impatient though. The fact that the game runs on real time means that you have to wait for everything lol. you can only grind so much in the game before you run out of things to do.

The game reminds me a lot of when I used to play Dolls with my siblings. We had a whole kingdom thought out and almost every stuffed animal would have a name, a family, and a history. You could ask any of my siblings about one of our dolls and we’ll probably say the same thing about them. I feel like I should make an archive like website for them one day. Just for fun. There, that’s a project for you Wilda.

Anyways, I originally got ACNL for the first time last fall of 2015. It was my therapy from all the stress I had to deal with at my call center job. There was a time where I called in sick right before work and hung out at Starbucks all day playing Animal Crossing. I was that stressed out and needed a personal day off. I really loved my old town Ichido. Unfortunately I lost my first ACNL cartridge while moving back to Washington… So good bye my Ichido; I will forever miss you..

Good news is, last fall I got a new one ACNL! I didn’t want to name the town Ichido again, since that just feels wrong, so I was looking for something similar to Ichido. Nido.. didn’t sound city-like, Sando just sounds like sandwich and the rest of the number sequence was just blah. In the end I settled with Hoshido because Hoshiru. I like the name but I still liked Ichido much better. Ichido just came to mind instantly when I started the game, it was meant to be.

Hoshido has gotten so much bigger than Ichido has though. Just today I finally got the Museum expansion so I can dump junk I want to keep as an ‘exhibition’. Haha.

Now that I got a New 3DS, I will be playing this more often. Hopefully.

ACNL: May In Hoshido

Wowzer, May went by super fast. It feels like it just started but we’re already 1 week in to June. The weather is getting warmer in downtown Seattle, and it’s definitely getting warmer in Hoshido as well. Mosquitoes are out at night now, yikes! Well let’s see what happened in Hoshido this past May…

————————-

We started off with Timmy & Tommy merging with Leif’s nursery. Thus, now called T.I.Y. They now offer KK Slider’s CD so this definitely helps with my KK Slider obsession, I can get all the CD’s faster! Muahahaha. Leif also started selling indoor plants. Inspired by Molbak’s hidden cafe, I got the idea of having an indoor garden merge with my kitchen/dining room. Ahh! This is going to be exciting. With 500k per expansion though.. It’s going to take awhile lol.

T.I.Y

Speaking of house decors, I also recently redecorated my main room. The theme here is traditional & green. How do you like it? I crapped up the room on purpose so it feels like those tiny Tokyo apartments. How do you like it?
Good news, Hoshido finally got a perfect town rating! We did it! Isabelle granted me the golden watering can. Not that I really need it since everyone in town help water the flowers anyway, but it’s still such an honor. The moment Isabelle said the residents think Hoshido is “the best town ever!” I was nearly in tears :’)

Also, a little clip of the fishing tourney this month. Congratulations to Boone on 1st place, and Phoebe on 2nd! Honestly, I just let Boone with so he feels accomplished… Now I’m secretly hoping he’s ready to move on to a new town lul

Grats Boone! NOW GET OUT OF MY TOWN T_T

Let’s not forget, Happy Birthday to my favorite Monkey, Deli! You got to love Deli man. Both Deli and I have a thing for sharing our craving phases. Which I wonder what his summer cravings gunna be.

Well, that’s a wrap for Hoshido! I honestly haven’t been doing much in town since I’ve been back on Osu and obsessively trying to gain PP again.

Last weekend Mayor Belle invite me over to her town, Slayer, to see some shooting stars. This is my second time visiting Slayer and it is super pretty! I hope Hoshido can be as pretty one day. This visit to Slayer we mostly just chilled around town and went to the tropical island! We did 1 round of the Fishing Tour at the island but since I only have beginner tours unlock it was too easy.. lol! I’ll just share some pictures Belle sent me from my visit (๑°꒵°๑)

Making a wish with Mayor Belle in Slayer

Mayor Belle Exorcising me before I’m allowed in town (lol jk)

After seeing Slayer realized that I probably should put paths down to shape up Hoshido since I unlocked the QR code scanner. So that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing on Animal Crossing lately. Laying paths in AC is extremely tedious because I’m laying them down one by one. I have no idea if there’s a faster way of doing this. I’m going to feel so silly if there is haha. Also, I don’t have enough pattern slots on my Mayor character so now there are blank spots. I thought I’d be okay because I have a 2nd human character in town but NOPE. You have to be-friend Sabel on the new human character so… Now my town has sidewalks with patches of grass orz

Hole in the sidewalk? Idk what you’re talking about

We still love Hoshido… Right Cobb?

Seriously Kitty? Out of all catch phrases you had to take it from Cobb’s lol

Then again, it’s little things like this that you have to work on in Animal Crossing that makes it so rewarding. After place paths in town I can start planning out where I want to put some major public work projects.

I’m so excited to see Hoshido grow more!!

Something funky and mildly annoying is going on with The Roost in Hoshido. When I finally unlocked The Roost and set it up for construction, the next morning we have a new animal move in.. RIGHT IN FRONT OF IT…

Darn you Penelope

Welcome to Hoshido, Penelope?? I’m open for all animals to town, cute, ugly, mean, nice, whatever, but when you’re blocking thew view of my highly anticipated cafe, I really don’t know how to feel. I tried my best to ignore her every time I see her wondering around. I guess the fact that she wasn’t really an animal I’d care for to begin with helps.. lol. Finally after a month or so, Penelope pinged me and told me she’s ‘unfortunately’ moving out of Hoshido (oh,thank god). The Roost was finally free! …….. the view for a good few weeks or so..

Then today………

WHO ARE YOU? Are you Penelope’s Evil Twin? Wait, we can cut the Evil part out of that line cuz we already know Penelope is evil. >:( I should have been safe and put down patterns on the floor so no animals moves in right in front of the Cafe… When I finally get this evil animal out of Hoshido, that is going to be the first thing I do…

Hi everyone! The other day I found out that one of the girls in our discord also plays animal crossing. Yay! so we decided to do down visits. It was fun! While she was happy to have someone to play ACNL with, I was too. there’s not much to say but here are a few pictures of me visiting her town.

Meal time at mayor Belle’s house

Sitting in the flower fields

She’s a time traveler! Very brave. I’m too scared to time travel because I just think it gets freaky and I personally like the real time play. It makes me look forward to things the next morning. My town does progresses very slowly though. I actually want to a second game so I can do a bell boom town. Maybe I’ll time travel on that one.. Just maybe haha.
