A Little Look Back On The Positive Moments From My Lockdown Experience

When 2020 started, I felt like it was a fresh start with a whole bunch of new possibilities. Little did I know, 2020 had a different idea for all of us. This year just really hasn’t been too kind. However, I have decided to look back over the whole 2020/lockdown experience in a more positive way to see what good things have happened so far this year.

So yeah, let’s throw on our positive pants and think about what we are grateful for…

The Estellosaurus Animal Crossing Island Getaway Tag

Animal Crossing is taking over my life. Everything I do revolves around the game these days. Even when I see a bug in real life, my brain instantly tries to work out how many bells that bug is worth. If only I carried a net with me in real life too.

I have now nearly clocked 200 hours of Animal Crossing: New Horizons gameplay and I don’t intend on stopping anytime soon.

My wonderful friend, Estelle has created an Animal Crossing themed tag and I was so happy to be tagged.

My Animal Crossing: New Horizons Daily Checklist

The best thing about Animal Crossing: New Horizons is that there’s something new to do every day. As well as those new tasks, you can complete some daily checklist tasks. These tasks will help you make the most of my time on your island. Many of these tasks can be completed everyday so it’s pretty easy to create a routine out of these.

You don’t have to do all of these everyday because you’ll find that some of these work well for your island well but others just don’t work for you. That’s why I love Animal Crossing though. Everyone plays for them and you can play at your own pace. It’s just such a calming game.

February 2020 Round-Up

February has come to an end. The second month of the century has been completed. I’m very thankful that it didn’t last as long as January did. I thought that January was never going to end.

February is a funny little month. I always feel like February is the month of change. I’m not sure if there’s a reason that I feel that way, I just do.

I figured that since February has ended, I would share some of the things that I’m ‘currently’ doing.

Two Small YouTubers You Should Be Watching

Small YouTubers are struggling these days. With all these bigger YouTubers going around scoring millions of subscribers, people just aren’t bothered by the little guys.

That is why, today I’m going to be sharing two of my favourite small YouTubers so you can check them out and show a little extra love to them.

I feel like both of these YouTubers put a lot of work and effort into their channels so it could be great if you could go on over to their channels to spread the love and positivity.

Anyway, onto the channels…

Simon Parker

I’m sure that you all know Simon by now but you might not have known that he has a channel.

Simon has been slacking recently but I’m trying to encourage him to upload again so go and show him some love so he feels more confident entering the YouTube world again.

Terry Mae

I was searching for more YouTubers to watch when I came across Terry Mae.

Terry Mae’s channel is super cute and her thumbnails are adorable. It looks like she puts so much effort into her videos and she deserves so many more subscribers.

Which small youtubers have you been watching recently?

What I’ve Been Playing ♡ March 2019

I asked on Twitter for people to link me to their blogs. Someone who did that was the lovely Nikki from nikkipedia. I had never read her blog before but it was absolutely fabulous. Definitely a new favourite blogger.

But anyway, I got an idea while reading her blog. Every month (if I remember), I will write a roundup post of everything I’ve been playing recently. Whether it’s a app game, computer game, DS game or xbox game, I’ll include it in my roudup post.

I’m hoping that these posts will encourage you all to discover new games that you wouldn’t have ever thought of playing!

So… here’s the March edition of What I’ve Been Playing..!

Minecraft

I started playing Minecraft around 6/7 years ago. I would stay up late into the night and early hours of the morning just mining and building things. However, I stopped playing for a couple of months until Simon bought me a copy for the Nintendo Switch from Christmas last year. Now, I’m addicted again. I recently just built a cinema which looks so cool!

Disney’s Magic Kingdoms

I play this game on my iPhone and it’s so much fun and so addictive. I seem to be checking it at least five times a day if not more. If you haven’t heard of it then it’s basically a game where you get to build and run your own Disney park. It’s great fun for any Disney fan.

Crash Bandicoot N’sane Trilogy

I was so happy when this game was released that I bought it as soon as I could. However, it is so much more difficult than it was when I was a kid. I struggle with it a lot but at the same time, it’s so much fun. I seem to be stuck on a certain level though so every now and then, I head back onto the game and attempt the level again. Each time, I get a little further but it’s so frustrating that I can’t do it.

What have you been playing lately? Any games that you recommend that I check out?

My Nintendo Switch Game Collection

I bought my Nintendo Switch around three months ago. I know, I was pretty late in getting one but I have one now so it’s all good, right?!

Since getting my Nintendo Switch, I have accumulated quite a few games. I play a range of different games from Minecraft to Zelda.

So, I thought it would be fun to share all my Nintendo Switch games with you. I don’t have the biggest collection but these are the games that I do have…

Minecraft

Minecraft is one of my all time favourite games. Simon bought it for me on the Nintendo Switch for Christmas and I’m so happy with it. I keep getting confused on the controls though because I’m used to playing it on the xBox One or PC.

Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee

We preordered this game so we were able to pick it up on release day. Simon completed it in about two days so I didn’t get the chance to play it straight away. I do love what I have played so far though although I’m barely into it.

Lego The Incredibles

I haven’t played this game at all yet. It was one of Simon’s choices when we first bought the Switch. He wanted it super badly but has actually hardly played it since we bought it..

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

I haven’t played this game either yet. I played this game so much on the Wii U that I got completely sick of it. We even bought the wheels that go with the game so that we could play together but we haven’t played yet.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Confession time; I love Zelda but I completely suck at it. I don’t even know how it’s possible to be bad at Zelda but I really am. I am hardly into the game because everytime I try to play it, I rage quit.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers

This is one of my favourite games. I just find it super cute. I always choose to race as a Ninja Turtle because they are my fave.

Super Mario Odyssey

his game is super fun but once again, I haven’t completed it yet. I played it so much when I first bought it but then I decided that I wanted to game less as I was spending a lot of time on it and then I stopped playing all together.

Splatoon 2

Ok, I just don’t understand Splatoon. What is the point of it? What am I meant to be doing? I’m so stupid!

Cars 3: Driver To Win

Cars will always have a special place in my heart so when I found out that they had a Nintendo Switch game, I just had to buy it. It’s a super fun and simple game and I need to play it more often.

Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy

I have a love hate relationship with Crash Bandicoot. I absolutely love it but it’s just so difficult that I rage quit often and scream at the console. If you haven’t played the remastered Crash Bandicoot then I recommend that you do though!

1-2 Switch

Simon and I decided that we should probably get this game as it’s the basic Switch game. I’m actually surprised that this game doesn’t come with the Switch for free. It’s a fun game though. Even if I do get way too competitive.

What games do you play on the Nintendo Switch? Are there any games that I need to add to my collection?

Let’s Talk About What We Want From Animal Crossing 2019

I love, love, love Animal Crossing! If you’re anything like me then you’ll love it too.

I thought it would be fun to list a few features that a lot of us are hoping for from the the 2019 game.

Just a few months back, Nintendo announced that they were be releasing Animal Crossing in 2019. There’s not much information out about it so far but here’s what we all hope is added to the game.

Relationships Between The Characters

I want to see more relationships between the villagers. Things like dating, friends, enemies, etc. It’d be awesome to be invited to your villagers weddings.

A Bigger Town

The gamecube version of Animal Crossing had the largest size world. New Leaf is only 1/3 of the size of the largest world. That is why we want more space. We could have a whole load of new space for new plants, projects and ponds. They could even increase the villager limit.

More Side Quests

You would never find yourself with nothing to do. Every time you speak to a villager, you could be asked to do a task or quest from villagers. That was you will be able to play the game for longer without running out of things to do.

What are you hoping for from the game?
