August 2nd – August 8th

Sunday

August 2nd, 2020

This week really starts off with a bang with our very first Fireworks show! Before we get to that though, it was also the day I spent going to 103 Islands in search of Apollo, Tia, or Margie to replace Peggy. If you read the post you will know I didn’t go home with any of them.

Even though I even saved the free Nook Mile Tickets for Winter and Milo specifically so that I would have an extra bonus when looking but I still got nothing! So I’ll find out tomorrow what Random villager ends up in her place.

Anyways back to the fireworks, I had a lot of fun putting in custom designs for the show. Especially since I had images of all the villagers I want/have that made it perfect. I also made a few up specifically for the show (a mermaid and a clam shell that fit well with Sirenity’s theme).

Overall it was a great time just seeing the villagers reacting to everything and having a good time! I can’t wait for the next show!

The first thing I did when I woke up was check to see who was going to be invading my town for a little while. I was Lucky enough to get Lucky!! I actually really enjoy Lucky but as much as I like him I don’t have room for him to stay permanently on my Island. Ideally I’d love to have him for whenever I get/start Sirenity South but I also have a friend who wants him so for now this Lucky will go to them. (Turns out it’ll be a trade for Apollo though!!!!!)

Flick was also in town today thankfully I was prepared for once and immediately handed over my Alexandria Butterflies so that he could make me that beautiful model!

Welcome to Sirenity, Lucky! You will only be here a short while but we will definitely enjoy every minute of it.

Also fun fact Lucky also informed me that he is originally from my friend’s island Beacon! I thought that was a fun thought!

I also managed to lend a helping hand to Ellie today, she wanted to improve her friendship with Whitney (like who wouldn’t?) and I was just the gal for the job!

Gullivarrr was also in town today, I love that I am seeing this beaked fellow a lot more often, him or his lesser counterpart. Both Gulliver and Gullivarrr talk about having a full crew I always wondered who, and what, kind of animals were always taking care of these goons. It would be really cool to see something for it in the future!

I couldn’t miss an opportunity to visit our newest villager again he is literally so creepy, which to me translates as absolutely adorable!

Leif was also in town today, though I didn’t play a whole lot as work is a thing I do outside of the blog. But we did have a little chat after I checked on my Island before I went to bed.

I had absolutely zero interest in today’s Campsite visitor. Not my type in the slightest. Thankfully my friend wasn’t quite ready for Lucky’s arrival yet so I didn’t have to force this guy in to get Lucky to his rightful owner.

I spent some time with C.J. today as he was hanging around my Island. Finished his seaports challenge like it was nothing, but it was of course still ridiculously fun.

I find it amazing that so far every time I’ve had a week with Gullivarrr, I will also get Gulliver in that week. I don’t know if this will always be the case but that’s my experience with it so far, and I am by no means complaining. I almost always forget to jump on all my other characters to help him out though. I would probably have a lot more cool Gulliver/Gullivarrr items if I did. I’m pretty sure I’ve only remembered to do it once since I’ve started playing.

I swear I played today, I even have pictures but all the pictures I managed to get will be needed elsewhere. Not that I can’t post the same image more than once, but the ones that I got would be spoiling future stuff. I managed to finally catch my Villagers talking to each other again, it honestly has been weeks! To the point where I actually ran out of story times. Even though I managed to get one new story time I’m still holding off at least this week maybe more until I can build up a little bit of a collection again. Or if I can fast track getting my Island complete (just need 3 villagers) I can start working on my own story times. Which brings me to my final thought for the day.

I plan to start time travelling, probably starting tomorrow. I feel at this point I’ve done all the major game stuff without doing it and now it’s just about experiencing the fun. Plus the fact that gives me the opportunity to hopefully get my Island done quicker so I can start what I want to do. I want it noted that I went from May 4th, 2020 the day I first opened the game, all the way to August 9th, 2020 before time travelling for the first time! Hopefully you guys don’t hate me for this but I do feel it will be better for the content I want to create in the long run.

July 19th-25th

Sunday

July 19th, 2020

This week Sirenity starts off with some friendly reminders for the end of the week’s Bug Off, and the upcoming Birthday of our Resident Ketchup! I didn’t end up doing too much today, went and attempted to get my daily scallops for my characters. Seems like some days I get it all going smooth and then other days I’m lucky if I’ll get anything from the day. Except for Milo, for whatever reason Pascal really has it out for Milo. I’m sure I’ve said it before but he is just not letting up.

I bought 100 Turnips just because I felt like it and they were only 94 Bells a bunch. I figure if it’s a loss it’ll at least be a small one. I haven’t had a decent Turnip price in what feels like weeks. Which I am sure is just an exaggeration and just feels that way with the real world work juggling I got going on. Too much real life stuff going, means at least even if I am only jumping on Animal Crossing to do some stuff for the blog I still feel like I am relaxing a little and trying to have fun. Either way it was an alright day in Sirenity.

Monday

July 20th, 2020

Sirenity’s first visitor for the week is dear old Flick, and know matter how many times I say “I’ll prepare for him next time” I always forget to set aside the bugs/fish I want models of from him. Plus taking into consideration this was a work day for me, I almost had to go without getting anything. But, somehow by the grace of The Crossing, I scrounged up enough for a lovely Moth model.

Another quick little fun thing, I had a friend gift me some Nova Lights! They are honestly an amazing addition to my Island and I can’t wait until I unlock the DIY for myself because I will totally be utilizing these throughout as much as humanly possible.

Tuesday

July 21st, 2020

At this point if you notice not a lot of photos and info about stuff that happened in the day. It’s likely it was a work day for me. I’ve honestly been lucky that I have had enough energy to keep at least jumping on for a few minutes everyday.

This was actually the first day I came incredibly close to not playing. I kind of thought I had jumped on before I had gone into work because that’s what I normally do. So when I got home for the night exhausted I headed basically directly to bed and it was literally all I could think about. It was like an itch that needed to be scratched and I was so lucky that I had scratched it otherwise I would’ve missed out on Redd’s Treasure Trawler!

I have a hard enough time grabbing all the museum items to be missing something like the Treasure Trawler, so I was really happy I stuck to my gut and jumped on. I always really used to take my time with the Museum as to me it was just something extra fun on the side to try and aim for but I feel like I’ve gotten more stuff than I ever have at least from Redd’s. I was always an irregular player before so unless I was super lucky I never really got to see him. Makes me really happy with all that New Horizons has given us!

Wednesday

July 22nd, 2020

It was really nice to see Gullivarrr today! I made sure to jump on all my characters and dive for his phone so that I can get the maximum Pirate benefits.

On another note, I recently came into some Amiibo cards! One of the ones I happened to get is actually someone on my Dream Team Mathilda. So today I figured I wanted to try out the Amiibo camper summon for the first time, to start the process of seducing Mathilda to join Sirenity.

It was actually quite a bit of fun chatting her up, and then actually making her something that she wanted to bring back with her. When I was given the option to ask her to stay, even though I know full well how long it normally takes, I wanted to make sure Mathilda new my intentions right from the start. I need her in my town, she is a necessity.

Plus I think she is just absolutely adorable.

Not too much else happened other than I had a few friends over on my Island to check it out one last time before I go and change it all up again. My currently layout is just a little too hard to upkeep (going through the maze to pick up sticks was a hassle). So I am planning some interesting and fun new things that I can’t wait to share.

Goodbye my maze, I loved you but it is time for us to move on to bigger and better things!

Thursday

July 23rd, 2020

Another day, and I had the time so I spared none in inviting Mathilda over once again. I knew I really could take as much time as I wanted to do this, I just didn’t want to wait that long. I would ideally love for me to finish inviting her by the end of the week! So I can keep on looking for my other Dream Team members.

It’s honestly easier and a lot more fun for me to “win” their affection through building souvenirs than it is actually having to “win” at a random chance game.

CJ was also in Sirenity today! Now since it was my day off, I took it as the opportunity I finally needed to actually start hoarding some bugs/fish for models. I even was able to find enough stuff on the first day to request stuff from all my characters!

Friday

July 24th, 2020

Today actually felt so incredibly busy on the Island. I had Gulliver, Wisp and Celeste all show up on Sirenity at one point or another today. I was incredibly surprised to see Gulliver as I had just seen Gullivarrr not that long ago. Then when I saw Celeste with my light meteor showers it felt like a double whammy. Even after that I ended up discovering that Wisp was out and about too! But could Pascal show his face for not one but two scallops! NO CAN DO BUCKERINO!

And I even missed some of the meteor shower because I was determined to get Pascal to show up. But after missing a few rounds of stars on top of not seeing him, I was DONE for the night.

Saturday

July 25th, 2020

Today was the day I finally recruited Mathilda to the Island! It was actually really fun doing the Amiibo route, I kind of thought that it was going to feel a little like cheating. But I stand corrected, I feel like I worked hard to get Mathilda to join the Sirenity community.

Even more than that, I love that I was actually able to select the villager that she would be replacing. I thought it was going to be like regular camper recruitment in that I might’ve had to reboot the game a couple times for her to choose someone I want. Since I did get to choose myself though I finally got the chance to rid myself of Iggly! I haven’t liked him since the moment we started this Island adventure together. Yes Iggly has made lots of lovely memories on Sirenity, but his time here is done.

Today was also the bug off, and happened to be a work day for me which means I basically didn’t participate this time around. At least not to the extent I normally enjoy too. I was able to hop on at least my main character Thirteen and Winter and do one run with them during my break at work. So that I could at least get the Nook Mile Achievement stamp for it. Especially since it would be the very first one for Winter. Milo I am not really worrying about for much unless I ever decide I don’t want him as a camper anymore.

One last amazing thing that happened this week, I finally managed to at least complete the fossils portion of the museum! It’s exciting to finally reach such an accomplishment!
