Oh, wow. Animal Parade review?

So, I got my game "Animal Parade" a few days ago (Harvest Moon) for the Wii.
I love this game! There's so much more of a plot to it, and they make you work much harder to 
get the bachelor or bachelorette to fall for you, which takes ages if you're focusing on the plot, raising your status to Hero, or something else.

It's also incredibly hard to choose a guy (in my case) though, but I usually go for the Wizard (Gale):

He's just incredibly adorable! I love this photo, but in the game he's a bit more cute.
Since the blonde-ish hair really compliments his darker (tan?) skin tone, which also plays on

bringing out his eyes a bit more.

Geez that's adorable~
The girl in the picture (first one) if from the game Tree of Tranquility, her name is Akari (Angela).
The girl from the 3rd photo is Hikari (Molly).

You can play as both main characters in the game Animal Parade.
It's really annoying, though, that you have to go mining to find ores and such to use your equipment after you upgrade. Yes, you go have that upgraded fishing rod all you want, but until Ramsey forges you a new item, you can't use it.

It sucks.
That's about the only drawbacks, though. I really enjoy this game~ I bought it from
Took a while to get here, but it did eventually. I contacted them after it had not been shipped out on the first day, or the second, and they apologized and gave me a ten dollar refund!
It was $29.99 with FREE shipping. I was so happy~~~~

On my last blog I said I'd draw a photo, and I did~! Just not New Years related.
Keeping in my Animal Parade madness and not being able to choose between Gale and Toby,
I'm writing a fan fic about both of them.
In the latest chapter, Hikari (Molly) went to a festival (I made up) and had their photo taken.
This is the photo I drew with THAT photo in mind (Okay, I used a BASE, so I didn't draw the people. But everything else I did~ base from DA).

So, yeah! That's this blog!

Goodness... it's snowing... I hate snow! I could really use some Starbucks.

Happy New Years!

Happy New years, everyone!
Did you all have a good year, what did you do?

I didn't do much myself, I wont celebrate New Year until February 3rd, and that still
isn't the big celebration everyone is thinking about.
I'm thinking about seeing if a few friends want to go out to eat on the first Saturday
of February, but I don't know if they'll be able to go.
It'd be fun, though!

Oh, I'd like to apologize to everyone for not commenting on their blog like I should!
Things have been really crazy, and I'm starting to try to study more, and actually get off my

butt and learn Kanji so I wont be so illiterate (I swear, if there were any more letters in the English
alphabet, I'd not even be able to read English. I'm so lazy).

I'll try to be better about it, now, so please continue to support me, too. I really appreciate it~♪

So, since I don't have the make up for a new years make up,
I'm going to draw a probably new-years related photo for my blog~ I wish I had
more to write about that has to due with new years, but I don't, sorry~~

Anyways! Good news for me~! I found out, after a while of research,that I do not need an
attorney or lawyer present for a name change- which I had thought the case.
My aunt is a paralegal, and she said that I needed one for sure to change my name.
Glad I didn't take her word, or I'd still be really depressed.

That means, a name change shouldn't be more than $300.00 for me! Which is the same amount
my room for Naka-kon just about cost me. Had I known this I would've said to forget Naka for now, changed my name, and then got a job to pay for it. I probably would have ignored Naka at all this year had I not promised my friend Krysta I'd be in the Karaoke contest with her (we're singing Hitobashira Alice, still, probably.) and my friend Sierra that I'd room with her.

But still, all in all, good news.
I'm so excited!

Oh, also, my friend Alice paid me for the room, like she said she would.
I'm glad about that, too. I was really annoyed with my parents saying I was never getting the money.
I hate how they have so little faith in my friends just because they haven't met.

Bye bye!
