Lots of stress going on lately. Getting ready to hopefully move in mid February, I have all the documents needed for the new apartment complex so I just need to submit the ones I had been waiting on next week.
It’s very cold here, when I went out in the morning it was 9 degrees Fahrenheit. My face froze and I felt like a had a brain freeze too! It felt good to come back inside and have a hot cup of coffee.
Starting a 30 day challenge of eating no junk food, and praying the Rosary daily. I’ll begin tomorrow. Trying to implement some better habits into my life. It’s going to be difficult, mainly the 30 days without junk food. I will document it with blog posts. I’m a major sugar addict.
Playing a lot of Stardew Valley and Pokemon Sword lately.
There’s so much to do in Stardew it’s amazing. Saving up to get another building on my farm to store trunks in. My character is married now, to Harvey. Trying to become friends with the wizard so I can change my appearance. Also working on getting the final house upgrade. I’ve been getting most of my money from fishing, it’s just really relaxing. I find I love fishing in many games, Animal Crossing, The Sims, other RPGs like Fantasy Life and Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons.
In Pokemon Sword I’m about to face the champion then after that I’ll work on completing my Pokedex and getting shinies.
Have so much to do in the next couple of weeks with packing and cleaning. I’m donating a TON of books to make the move easier and keep my life a little simpler/less cluttered in the new place. Just hanging onto a few favorite series, some of my Catholic books, and a couple autographed books. Also got rid of tons and tons of stuff I no longer needed, just all kinds of random things. Feels good, it will be a nice fresh start!
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I’ve been having internet issues on and off the past week or so. Anyway, things are going very well!
I started playing The Hobbit LEGO on my Nintendo 3DS. I have it for my Xbox 360 as well, which I’ll play through eventually too. It would be nice if a remastered version of that and The Lord of the Rings LEGO for the switch like they did with the Harry Potter games. I’ve been meaning to re-read the books at some point as well, such a great story!
On my Xbox 360 I’ve started playing Red Dead Redemption. I’m basically just getting the hang of the game and controls right now since I’m not very familiar with it and it’s been awhile since I’ve played. I love the scenery and am saving money for an Xbox One so I can play RDR 2 eventually which looks amazing. Right now I’ve been doing a lot of bounty hunting which is pretty fun.
With Animal Crossing New Leaf I’m getting closer to paying off my entire house loan with all the expansions. I’ve put 150 hours into the game over the past 2 years and am finally getting there! It’s taken so long but I don’t mind because of how relaxing the game-play is.
I saw that the Nintendo Switch Lite is available for pre-order. I’ll likely eventually get the yellow one and also the Pokemon special edition version.
Feel free to comment with whatever you’re currently playing! 🙂
So Nintendo announced and showed the Switch Lite, which will be released September 20th, 2019. I own the main system but will probably get a Lite as well. They come in 3 different colors, yellow, grey, and turquoise. There’s also an exclusive Pokemon Sword and Shield version coming out. These are basically a trimmed down version of the Switch for a cheaper price, $200. It’s more portable and sleeker so easy to use on the go. Also, it doesn’t have the ability to be docked or connected/played on the TV. It’s handheld only, which I think is actually nice. Of course, having that ability on the main switch is awesome but there are many people who prefer to game solely in handheld mode. I tend to mainly use mine in handhold. It’s a great option for people wanting to play on the Switch but can’t afford or don’t want to pay the $300 for the main system.
I’m still playing Animal Crossing New Leaf and trying to finish paying off my home loan, it’s taking quite awhile. I legitimately just found out you can stack fruit into baskets and I’ve been playing the game for around 2 years! How I missed that is beyond me. I was so happy to find out because I like selling fruit since there’s a lot in my town but it was tedious the way I was doing it before.
Also continuing playing Yonder : The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, at 39% completion so far. It’s so much fun to explore and is a great game, it deserves more recognition.
Going through Pokemon Let’s Go and making sure I beat all the coach trainers, and worming on beating all the master trainers. So far I’ve just got the title of Pikachu Master. Still need to catch Mewtwo in Cerulean Cave. Oh yeah, I bought the crown accessory for my Pikachu . $999,999 Pokedollars and completely unnecessary but why not! lol
I’m getting a mouse for my laptop. I got 2 games for my PC recently (Assassins Creed: Unity and The Sims 4) and know nothing about gaming on a computer, the controls are completely unfamiliar to me. I think having a mouse will make things quite a bit easier.
There are so many great games coming out within the next year and I’m excited play them and for my collection to grow.
Thanks for reading!
My ceiling is dripping, it has been almost all day for the past several days. Maintenance is supposed to find out what the problem is on Monday. This was a huge issue like 2 years ago, I had to have half my ceiling replaced. Now it’s happening again. It’s driving me crazy. I just want this resolved as soon and as fast as possible. I hate having a bunch of people in my apartment doing work. Especially with my 2 cats here, they get scared of people they don’t know and hide.
I’ve been playing Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles for the Nintendo Switch and OMG it’s amazing! The graphics are stunning, and the gameplay fun and relaxing. I’m just 16% complete so far and am in no hurry to finish, exploring the island of Gemea is so much fun.
I’m anxiously awaiting and hoping for information on the new Animal Crossing game for the Switch at E3!
Here’s a few screenshots of Yonder:
So I finally bought a Nintendo Switch last month, and I absolutely love it! I really like that it can be played either in handheld or on the TV, even though I mostly use handheld it’s a nice options and fun to see Nintendo games on the big screen again.
The game I’ve been playing most recently is Pokemon: Lets Go Pikachu!
I love it! I never actually got a chance to play the original Pokemon Yellow since I didn’t really get into the gaming aspect of Pokemon until the third generation of games (Ruby/Sapphire, Fire Red/Leaf Green) so it’s a fresh experience for me.
I like that wild Pokemon are visible, while I do enjoy the random encounters of past games I feel more motivated to catch Pokemon in this mode. It’s really neat seeing them all walking around!
I just received my 7th badge and am about to take on Viridian City gym.
Here are some screenshots from my game 🙂
My Pikachu is female and I named her Sparky
