AM: 25 Bells
PM: 21 Bells
This is looking very bad. It can’t get much worse though, so I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to at least break even.
I made a new male character last night, but I didn’t get very far with him. He needed a new house much like the first character (although they referred to Yumi, the original character) as the mayor. I couldn’t find anywhere to put his house, so I panicked and quit without saving him.
My main beef so far with ACNL is that it feels cramped. I’m probably spoiled by City Folk. I played Wide World, but I never really made paths or tried to organize my city. Now I’m trying to make paths and lay out my village and I feel that I really need to preplan or there won’t be room for everything since each item has to be a certain distance from another. The houses can’t be right by the train tracks and most of the utilities can’t either.
I hadn’t seen Nelson all day. When I finally visited him I found that he was sick! But my Nook Mart was already closed (it closes at 8PM) so I had to rely on Kokuto to let me come over and buy from his village (he has night owl so his shops are open later).
I caught some expensive bugs on the island last night and deposited the profits into my account. I saved over 1,000,000 bells.
After coming back from Jisuna village my mailbox was blinking and I had a new letter from the post office. Enclosed was the piggy bank. 🙂
Apparently saving bells doesn’t just get you recognition from the post office. The badge master was waiting for me when I returned to Kasen village. He gave me the “good at saving” badge.
Just after getting the badge when I came out of Nelson’s house from giving him medicine, my game crashed. I’ve never had it do that before. I had just come back from Kokuto’s town and hadn’t done much, so I didn’t lose much but it has me worried. Maybe it’s because I quit without saving earlier? I don’t know. But I think save early save often should be a new mantra. Resetti accosted me (no his shop hasn’t been open) and I told him it wasn’t my fault! So I didn’t get chewed out too much.
This morning I didn’t see any new visitors and I was feeling kind of down just watering my bazillions of flowers (where are you snowstorm??) when I came across a lone Jacob’s Ladder perched by the cliff. You know what that means?! Perfect Town!!!! Ok, it wasn’t technically confirmed so I watered my way over to town hall.
She went on to tell me the village was like paradise, that I could now build a flower clock and “reconstruct” the town hall. Oh reeeaaaalllly?
I doubt I’ll be putting in the flower clock any time soon, though I may reconstruct the town hall. I need to keep my perfect town status for two weeks so I don’t want to touch anything. After that I may have a demolition party. 🙂
I’d like my coffee to go please. Brewster offered me “takout” coffee today from the right side of the counter. I took him up on it. I didn’t get the enjoyment of gulping it down in one swig, but I did get a little cup to carry around and swig out of whenever I wanted (until I took a huge gulp and finished it).
My museum hasn’t had any wallpaper for sale, but I’m nosy and I went to Kokuto’s shop. He had the museum wallpaper last night, so I bought it.
Today my museum had a weird little machine. I can’t figure out the translation for it. It looks kind of like the guts of a music box. Despite not knowing what it is I bought it…
The Nook Brothers are still trying to push that holiday candle. I have one! Christmas tree please. Maybe tomorrow. I got another party popper to hoard, bought more medicine for the ailing Nelson, and stopped to listen to Lillian tell me her plans to become a pro shopper. Go Lillian!
On my way to the dock to check what furniture they had on the island I tripped over Gulliver. I thought we didn’t have any visitors. My bad. We played guess that country. It was really easy, but it could have been hard had I had another option in the answers.
See how it could be hard? Do they mean the Canadian side or the US side?
Well, I think you can sometimes see the Aurora in the northern US… so it was still in the running for me.
The US…natural…well, parts of it, maybe Montana…
Fortunately I was spared hemming and hawing over whether it could be the US.
I picked Canada. We’ll see what I get as recompense tomorrow.
I went to the island. I didn’t have time to do anything there because I’m struggling to post this before I leave for class. 😛 But they had something new that I want to try and buy later: Shamisen
No more Bellionaire
I paid off my 498,000 bell loan and immediately took out a new 498,000 bell loan to make my basement bigger. I noticed that I could order a bunch of harvest items that Kokuto had (and I can’t get until next year since they’re seasonal) but I have nowhere to put them. I’m making my basement bigger so I can empty out my mailbox and put them down there.
Also, by the time I decided to get the gingerbread facade Nook Housing was closed (it too closes at 8PM). Today he didn’t have gingerbread anything so I was spared the choice. If I see it again I’ll get it.
For old time’s sake, here’s a net whacking shot for Gluxbox. 😉
