I’m going to indulge myself a bit with the length of this post since it’s been so long since I last did a post on the happenings in Citàlune, and there’s a lot I want to share! Feel free to take breaks while reading, read a part one day and the rest another day, just scroll through the pictures, whatever works for you. xP
I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately, I haven’t had as much time for AC as I’d like… My town is still behind, and I haven’t made quick progress on the patterns/landscaping goals I outlined in my last post. I’ll try to speed up the progress as much as I can, and in the meantime, here’s a post on some WiFis I’ve had recently with someone from TBT, Megan, Marina, and Katie. 🙂
Well, I can’t really do an “End of October” post yet, because as I type this, my town is currently behind: on October 17th. I have a reason for being behind, which I’m excited about, and will go into more at the bottom of this post. But I was also excited about getting to experience the Halloween festivities in AC:NL in real-time after all, thanks to Ryann of Shantaki coming to the rescue!
(Haha, I know my post titles have been repetitive lately, but posting on half a month’s main activities has been good for the catch-up state I’m still in right now.) Autumn is beginning to show in the leaves, creating some lovely scenery around town as I work towards getting a new dream neighbor moved in, participate in the Fishing Tourney, and knock out a few Gracie fashion checks.
My last post covered the beginning of September, and this one doesn’t catch up to the present date yet, but goes up till the end of September. I accomplished a few changes to my town I’m happy with, like the moving of one of my character’s houses, and getting a new dream neighbor moved in!
I’ll be honest, I’ve gotten behind not only in posting, but also in my game in general. There were a few weeks I wasn’t able to play much AC:NL at all, and I don’t like to leave things to chance (like Melba moving out, or the most amazing item showing up when I’m not there to buy it), so I’ve been catching up through the days I missed by TTing. As I write this post I’m at around mid-September in my game, so that’s the extent of what this post covers. But I’m going to try to catch up to the present as soon as possible!
I say “finally” because PTS is something I’ve been wanting and working towards for a while (since I want the flower clock and town hall remodels), but it seems like loads of others got it much earlier on accident or with little effort! xP I think I probably made it difficult for myself by not building the campsite and police station (don’t know if I want those in Citàlune), or the café yet (a house is in the way of where I want to put it). Those projects are worth a lot of “abundant living” points in New Leaf’s town status system.
In my last post I left off before the first fireworks show, August 4th, to give a little perspective on how much time this post is covering. The fireworks are gorgeous in New Leaf! 😀 I hadn’t been spoiled on what the fireworks look like, so it was a fun surprise to see them for the first time. They’re a huge step up from the fireworks I’m used to in AC:WW, which were basically formed by a bunch of squares. (Aww, but I still love you, Wild World! 😛 ) They have more variety now as well!
I’m sorry that I haven’t been good about posting my town’s recent happenings lately! I think I’m going to go ahead and abandon my attempt at categorizing pictures into different days (like day 50, 51, etc.). I hope it it won’t be confusing to not specify each day, but after all, I never did that when posting on AC:WW.
