Photoshoot: Random

Hello!!! So lately my current obsession is taking random pictures of interesting moments/weird things hahah, so I just though I would share a few of them.

By the time this is published I’ll be on vacation, I’m using wordpress’ automatic publisher thingy, that kind of explains the lack of posts lately, sorry!! When I get back; I’ll try to do at the very least 1 a week, but if possible 2 a week 🙂 Thank you for understanding!!

3…2…1… START!!

Is this a glitch of some sort?? There are, no joke, 5 pond skaters in my tiny little pond…

I’d say Envy is probably correct (I know, I’m trying to fix that heheh), choosiness as well but not frivolity xD

And last, but not least I was finally able to catch a hammerhead shark!! They say they’re quite aggressive if they’re hungry, but people actually dive down into the ocean to see them. Talk about brave!!

Perfection meets chaos -Chapter 2

Sorry for the short chapter, but I kind of wanted to end it there since chapter 3 is kind of different format of the story? Does that make sense? 😛

Perfection meets chaos. Part 2

As the town hall came into sight I started calming down, everything was going to be alright. It was probably just a big misunderstanding…

I grabbed my dress with both of my hands and pulled it upwards, so it wouldn’t touch the ground, and I started running, but I tripped on a rock and fell into a puddle full of mud.

Disgusting, it was truly disgusting, I was covered in mud, wet and now crying of anger. Hasn’t it ever happened to you? You’re so angry, just pissed off and instead of screaming you cry, in silence you let your tears drop off your face to the ground and slowly stay there for a minute or two, dry your tears off, get up and continue on before anyone realizes. Well that’s what I did.

How ironic, when I woke up this morning, I would have imagined myself crying of happiness because my new dress from Dolce & Gabbana had arrived, or my $2,839 purse, not because, nor could I pay these, but because I was covered in mud ruined and humiliated.

NO, wait I wasn’t humiliated, no one knew, and a last thing a lady looses is her dignity or pride. Up we go, Ariadna, keep your chin high.

 

So when I arrived there guess who I saw… yeah my day just couldn’t get any worse.

“Jemma! I thought you were designing at the Able Sisters…”

“Yeah, and I thought we could afford to pay our bills”

 

It was like a steel knife in my chest. You see? Money wasn’t just survival and luxury, it was me. Everything I had ever worked for in life came with this reward, pieces of green bills, that were worth everything, nothing’s free in life. My parents were so proud… All my roommates were too. Who was I now? Who am I still, up to this day? But more on that later… This was how it all started. They say everything will be okay in the end, if it’s not okay, it’s not the end; but this was the end, it was the end of the easy days, and in came the hardest ones: the worst but also the best ones ever.

 

Thanks for reading! I’ll be going on vacation and I’ll be back blogging in 2 weeks or so, hope you understand!! Happy Summer!

How to… Get rich quick! Step by step

Howdy y’all!! 😛 You need some extra money, in Animal Crossing? Don’t worry! I’ll show you a few very easy methods to win some extra bells! You’ll be rich in no time!!

Disclaimer: These methods are simply some ways to gain money, no codes or cheats are needed. Even with these methods, bells are hard to gain in Animal Crossing, patience is key, and you won’t get rich within the first time you use these 😛

First method: Fleas in the market? IMG_4391[1]

You are going to need…

  1. A net and/or a fishing rod
  2. Empty pockets
  3. And the flea market coming up!! Unless you want to time-travel. In Wild World the flea market occurs the 1st Saturday of every month except for January. (1st Saturday of February, March, April…)

What to do…

  1. Start catching bugs and fishes!!
  2. When your pockets are full of catches, head over to your house and empty the main room (the more space there is, the better)
  3. Place all your bugs/fishes in the room until its full capacity.
  4. Time travel or wait until it’s the Flea Market in your town
  5. Wait inside your house until a “customer” (neighbor) comes in
  6. Once they ask you about a fish or bug, negotiate with them the best price! If they’re interested, they could buy the fish or bug for thousands of bells!!

Second method: You’ve got mail!!

You are going to need…

  1. Paper to write letters (purchase at Nook’s store)
  2. 100 bells or some cheap item.

What to do…

  1. Address a letter to a neighbor in your town, doesn’t matter who.IMG_4443[1]
  2. Write one sentence in your game’s language (English, Spanish, French…) If you’re game’s in English you can take for example what I wrote in the image. 🙂
  3. Write up to four sentences in your game’s language (English, Spanish…) make sure they are real words, the longer the letter, usually, the more value the gift you get in return has. *
  4. Adjust to the letter a present (just drag and let go of the object on top of the letter) it can be a fruit, 100 bells…
  5. Go to the town hall and send it!!
  6. Wait for a reply by the neighbor, the reply will include some item: either an object from their house, a piece of foreign fruit (sell it for 500 bells!) or a random clothing piece.
  7. Sell the item to Tom Nook, and hopefully you’ll have gained some bells!!

* Depending on how long the letter is you’ll get different stuff in return. One sentence will get you fruit or a piece of clothing, two lines will get you a piece of furniture and three or four will either get you furniture, wallpaper or carpet 🙂

The key to this method is getting in return something of more value than the present you sent to them, this way you’ll gain bells when you sell it!!

Third method: ‘Sup bro, you broke?

Okay… excuse that really pathetic name 😆

You are going to need…

  1. Nothing!! 😀 This is the easiest method, but also the less efficient

What to do…

  1. Look around your town, bells and items can be hidden around these places:
      1. Town hall recycling bin
      2. Trees: shake them, but watch out for bees! Bags of 100 bells will fall down, fruits and even furniture!
      3. Underground: you’ll need a shovel to dig in certain spots, you can easily find gyroids and fossils, which sell for quite a lot of bells!!
      4. Rocks: with a shovel, hit a rock! Each day one rock in your town contains thousands of bells in it! Just be quick!!

Perfection meets chaos -Chapter 1

Perfection meets chaos. Part 1

It was an early morning, I was woken up by the “singing” (as she calls it) of Jemma’s horrifying bee, Jacob, I think is its name.

I threw the pillow that had fallen down from by bed on top of my ears and tried to fall asleep once again, but it was no use. I looked around, it was deserted, Jemma, Rina and Chris had woken up already and were living their poor lives. You see I was the only one of the house that knew how to dress, makeup, eat and do anything you can imagine with style, the others just did it their own way…

I got up from bed, put on a violet dress with yellow and orange flowers, got my comb and hairspray and started tidying my hair. After that, I walked down, and before having breakfast, went outside to open the mailbox and read the mail, like I had been doing for the past two years.

Always the same routine” I whispered to myself, and grabbed four letters from the mailbox; one was from my mom, so I put it in my pocket to read it while eating breakfast as I always liked to do, a second one was from the H.R.A, usually Rina reads these, so I left it back in the mailbox, the third one was from Nook, the owner of Nookingtoons sending a barbecue to Chris, the same model as that one I hid behind the house fence since Jemma and I had planned to not have to taste his barbecue ever again. And the last one was from the town hall, I was expecting news about how my founds had increased but instead I read this:

 “Due to you having no more money in your bank account, we have cancelled all your credit and debit cards until you invert more money in these.

You owe the bank 29,870 bells for your last spending of money in these shops:

  • Able Sisters
  • Nookingtoons

Sincerely, Pelly, your account manager.”

I couldn’t believe my eyes, I thought it might be a joke from Pelly, but who does that? Besides, Pelly and I are too close for her to joke about these things with me.

I ran inside, grabbed the phone on top of the exotic end table in the main room, called Jemma, who must be helping out right now at the Able Sisters, and waited for an answer, she was the cleverest one of all and I was hoping for some advice.

“Hello? Is that you, Ariadna?”

I didn’t dare to answer, this was so embarrassing.

“Oh, umm… Jemma, Is that you? Oh, I’m so sorry I got confused”

“Okay, I guess. Are you alright?”

“Me? I’m as good as… peppermint! (Dang, what the hell did I just say?) Listen, unlike you, I got a life so I got to get going.”

I kind of regretted saying that, but I was in no mood to fix more mistakes. So I took the next step, going to the town hall.

Running towards the town hall I ran into Rina, tried not to speak to her, and I could tell she didn’t want to speak to me either. But I was too busy to wonder why.

Right as I was about to continue walking my stomach started doing loud noises, I hadn’t eaten breakfast and I was hungry, this forced Rina to start a conversation with me.

“Wow! The greatest, most elegant Ariadna didn’t eat breakfast?”

“Yeah, well I didn’t really have time, but I was planning on going to the Roost”

“So… shouldn’t you be running the other way?” A small accusing laugh escaped from Rina’s mouth.

“… Do you mind? I have stuff to do!”

“You like to laugh at other people but can’t stand it when they’re laughing at you, huh?”

“Shut up!”

I stepped to the right to start walking away again, but Rina also stepped in my way.

“Come on, I like laughing at you, but I still care, what’s wrong?”

“That I saw you outfit and I wanted to vomit”

“Vomit, really? How long did it take you to come up with that one, Ariadna?”

I then stepped to the left and, successfully, walked away.

 

Not the story: Ugh I kind of hate this format, this looked waaay better as a .docx file in my computer 😦 So maybe I’ll be experimenting with fonts and such in this post, don’t be surprised if tomorrow this post looks any different or such! Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy this one!

How to… Catch Tarantulas and Scorpions: Step by step

Hello sweet pumpkins 😛 How’s summer going? Catching plenty of bugs, remember in August 42 of the 56 bugs in Animal Crossing Wild World are available to catch, including Tarantulas and Scorpions.

Since they’re the 2 hardest bugs to catch for most people, I decided to do a little step by step tutorial that will both help me and you to catch these nasty little bugs!

So let’s start by getting to know better these little (or big) bugs

 the little images of the bugs (only) are from strategywiki.org

Okay, so know that we know when and where to catch them, the bells they put in our pockets (or the occupation in our museum) we can try to catch them. Pay attention and listen to me when I say do NOT hold a net, if you do and the Scorpion or Tarantula sees you it will run to attack you!

Notes: These bugs will not appear when it’s raining/snowing or when the gate is open.

  1. WITHOUT holding a net I’d recommend  just plugging  in some headphones to our nintendo and start listening to our game, naturally, not inside any building, just outside. Meanwhile you can read something, write, play games without a lot of noise…
  2. Whenever you hear a bug sound pickup your nintendo and check if you see a Tarantula or a Scorpion, if you don’t but you still hear the noise, walk around very slowly looking for the bug, also keep your eyes open for other bugs that might have mistaken you with their sound. Remember, do NOT hold a net!!!
  3. If you have spotted your catch of the day, it’s time to spot their back. If you see a Scorpion, it’s easy, just look for its tail. And if you see a Tarantula it gets a little more complicated; try advancing slowly towards it (not holding a net) until it moves a bit, be careful not to scare it too much or it might end up running in the ocean/river. The opposite direction that it moved will be its back.
  4. Now, sneak up upon them from behind (where they can’t see you) and when you’re 100% sure they can’t see you bring out your net, advance just the right distance and…
  5. WAP! Swing your net and hope for the best!

Did you catch it? Did it run away, or did you run away? Even worst, did it sting you? Leave a response in the comments below! I will try to add pictures to this tutorial soon, whenever I spot one 🙂

If you didn’t catch it, don’t worry, there will be other times! So keep your heads up and hope for more, oh! and after you donate both bugs in the museum a surprise is waiting for you…

You can also try other methods showed in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_clvBgI2mic   I explained the easiest way that I know, but maybe you find easier one of the methods from this video. 😉

I really hope this helps you guys, the greatest of luck and… Happy Summer!!!
