Small Snippet of March 2020

Things have been a bit crazy this month, what with the pandemic and everything. In this time my work place has shut its doors to the public, if I weren’t holed up in bed, I would be at work doing a lot of busy work and manning the phones. Here are some of the things I have been enjoying while in self-isolation.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The newest Animal Crossing game came out on March 20 and I have been in Animal Crossing heaven since then! It hasn’t been the best of times for me as I have the sniffles so have stayed in bed pretty much each day since March 20, however I have had enough time and wits about me to enjoy the game immensely!

I was so incredibly excited for this game that I not only did an Anticipated Arrivals post about it but I also pre-ordered the very expensive Animal Crossing Switch Console… No regrets!

Favourites of February

Happy end of February everyone! I’ve decided to step away from the Small Snippet format and try something different for my month wrap up post. Below you’ll see some of my favourites from February from a whole range of different mediums.

So welcome to my favourites of February and enjoy!


TV Show

The Good Place Final Season

Omgosh you guys! The final season was so perfect and amazing. I was watching this show on the edge of my seat as I had absolutely no idea where the story would go. From season one The Good Place has been such a wild ride! I feel in love with the characters and was constantly surprised by the directions taken by the narrative!

The last episode was a doozy and despite my many emotions, I was so happy to see it through. The Good Place has cemented itself as one of my favourite shows out there!

Anticipated Arrival: Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Anticpated arrivals

Beloved franchise Animal Crossing gets ready for its Nintendo Switch debut!

If the hustle and bustle of modern life’s got you down, Tom Nook has a new business venture up his sleeve that he knows you’ll adore: the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package! Sure, you’ve crossed paths with colorful characters near and far. Had a grand time as one of the city folk. May’ve even turned over a new leaf and dedicated yourself to public service! But deep down, isn’t there a part of you that longs for…freedom? Then perhaps a long walk on the beach of a deserted island, where a rich wealth of untouched nature awaits, is just what the doctor ordered!

Peaceful creativity and charm await as you roll up your sleeves and make your new life whatever you want it to be. Collect resources and craft everything from creature comforts to handy tools. Embrace your green thumb as you interact with flowers and trees in new ways. Set up a homestead where the rules of what goes indoors and out no longer apply. Make friends with new arrivals, enjoy the seasons, pole-vault across rivers as you explore, and more!

This new addition to the Animal Crossing series launches March 20, 2020, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system.

Features

*Customize your character and home, and decorate the landscape (with furniture, if you like!), as you create your very own island paradise.

*Experience a robust new crafting system—collect materials to construct everything from furniture to tools!

*Enjoy a variety of relaxing activities like gardening, fishing, decorating, interacting with charming NPCs, and more, as classic Animal Crossing experiences come to life in fun new ways within the deserted-island setting.

What is it?!

The newest game in the Animal Crossing franchise, Animal Crossing: New Horizons! Pretty much you play as a customised ‘villager’ who lives with a few animals. Traditionally you were located in a small village, however in New Horizons, you are on a deserted island where you start from scratch.

When is it coming out?!

March 20, 2020.

Why do you want it?!

I really love the Animal Crossing series, I clocked a ridiculous number of hours on my 3DS New Leaf game as well as the Happy Home Design. I’m really looking forward to playing the new game not only because of the different narrative set up but also because it’s on the Switch.

Also I love the sense of accomplishment I get when I finally complete a big challenge or pay off a loan. If only it was all this easy in real life 😋

Also I just watched the newest Nintendo Direct about it last night and I am SO PUMPED for the game!

Why does everyone else need it?!

Animal Crossing is just so dang cute! You need it because its not a traditional game, its one you return to over and over, playing for a little bit at a time. It is just so much fun!


Are you an Animal Crossing fan? Are you as excited as I am? Who is your favourite villager? Mine is Lily, she’s just so sweet and adorable 🐸
