Animal Crossing Diary: Week One (Again)

Monday 17 November 2014

Hello everyone, and welcome back to my Animal Crossing Diary! I did write my first post on this a long time ago, which you can find here. Having not played Animal Crossing for 6 Months, I thought that it was about time that I picked it up again... I made sure that I took lots, and lots of photos to share what I got up to with you guys, so here goes...

When I first emerged from my house, I was looking a little worse for wear. My hair was all over the place, and I was still wearing my wetsuit.

First I decided it was best if I head off and talk to all of my villagers, a lot of them were shocked to see me, as you can see. Wart Jr. thought I was dead, Katt didn't seem all that bothered by my disappearance, and Hans got a little bit intense with me...

Next I decided that a trip to Shampoodle was in order, to get my messy lilac locks sorted out. Harriet didn't disappoint me and ended up giving me a very sleek blue bob, which even went with my outfit!

I went to check out some accessories, and fell in love with this crown, although I was bowled over by how much they were asking for it, obviously I had to leave it...

Then came operation 'Clean Up', as you can imagine after a 6 month absence my town was overrun with weeds. Thankfully I managed to get rid of them pretty quickly and now my town is back to looking beautiful in these lovely autumn colours.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that today was the fishing tourney when I logged back in, so I thought I should get to work in trying to win. Seeing as I am so good at fishing, it really didn't take me long to catch a good fish, and take the lead. Satisfied with my contribution I decided to run a few other errands before the winners ceremony.

I managed to catch myself a balloon, and inside was this multicoloured balloon hat, which I immediately put on! Hans looks seriously depressed in the background of these pictures...

After being away for so long, I unfortunately had a few unwelcome house guests, but I managed to get rid of those fairly easily.

I sold all the fish I had caught whilst looking for a big enough tournament fish, and managed to pay off a chunk of my loan from Tom Nook. I'm only 100,000 Bells in debt now! My goal is to pay this off next week.

I even went and did a spot of free-diving, which was my favourite additions to the Animal Crossing games when I got New Leaf. 

I even went and had a look on Tumblr for a cute new outfit, and I found this QR code for a dress inspired by The Rainbow Fish, which is a book I read as a child. I thought it was seriously perfect for the fishing tourney so put it on immediately. Also it goes pretty well with my hair and glasses right? Another thing I love about New Leaf is how easy it is to get a pattern that you love, that someone else has designed. Before you would have to carefully copy the pattern yourself, now you can simply read a QR code and have your new outfit it seconds. I myself am by no means any good at making AC patterns, so being able to find so many good ones online, that I can have within seconds, seriously makes me smile.

Finally it was time for the winners ceremony, and I was pleased to find that I had come first! I was given my Gold Fishing Tourney Trophy, and all the villagers clapped for me! Ankur, my favourite villager came in second, and Nan came third. 

All in all, I had a very good time picking this up again, and I can't wait to see what next week brings. Let me know in the comments if you play Animal Crossing New Leaf, and let me know how you got on in the fishing tourney!
