Thanks Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Warning, this post isn’t going to be super long. This post is mainly to show my appreciation and gratitude for a little game called Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I’ve been a fan of Animal Crossing since it’s 2001 release but for some reason New Horizons hits different! Well, I know the reason. With everything that’s going on in the world and with the “Shelter in Place”, I’ve found myself in a slight… I don’t want to say depression. I’ve just been feeling antsy and anxious.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons could not have come out at a better time! I find myself playing for hours upon hours each day. It’s such a great escape and it’s so darn fun. It’s so much fun that about three and a half weeks ago I decided to really get into the Animal Crossing community by creating an Animal Crossing IG account.

(And you guys, I just hit 500+ followers!).

Before I get into the IG account, I first wanted to share a few of my favorite photos I’ve taken while playing Animal Crossing. It’s so crazy to look back at some of these photos because in just 3 weeks my island has changed so much!Animal Crossing: New HorizonsAnimal Crossing: New Horizons

These photos were taken during my first week of gameplay and it was the first time I had friends over to my island.

I was so happy when my Campsite opened! Back when this photo was taken I only had 3 villagers, now I have 9!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bunny Day

I do not miss the Bunny Day event. (It’s so weird seeing this photo because A) My house looks nothing like that anymore and B) I’ve relocated my house since then).

I miss the cheery blossoms so much.

My two sisters and I! It feels like forever seen I’ve seen my sisters (even though we Facetime daily!). But I love that we are able to hang out thanks to Animal Crossing.

My villagers threw me a party for my birthday last week (April 17).

I’ve been spending the last few days (when I’m done with work + the weekend), beautifying my island. The first photo is of my dig site + mini garden outside of my museum. The bottom photo is of my turnip farm. My island has a lot of work to do but I’m getting it done slowly but surely. 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons KK Slider

What’s your favorite K.kK. Slider song?

The animal crossing community has been so amazing. I love being able to trade furniture/things with people, visit new islands and make new friends. When I first started my account (you can follow it HERE), I was shocked that I hit 100 followers within the first week.

Now in week almost 4, I’m at 500+! So I just want to say thank you to Animal Crossing: New Horizons for helping get my spirit up and my mind off things during these unfortunate times. If you’re a fellow Animal Crossing lover, please be sure to leave what you love about the game in the comments below.

Also, if you’re currently playing New Horizons, who were your first villagers? What’s your native fruit? What star island are you? Who’s your favorite villager?
