November 3rd: What do you do for fun when you aren’t blogging?
Outside of blogging and reading/listening to books, I walk almost daily (although I’m listening to a book when I do), watch TV with my family (current watches include Mandalorian, re-watch of His Dark Materials before new episodes this month, Kim’s Convenience, Sleepy Hollow), and socialize online with friends.
However, my latest obsession/time killer is playing Animal Crossings New Horizons. I picked up a Nintendo Switch and the game about two months ago, and love creating, designing, and just playing around. For those unfamiliar with the game, you pick a virtual character (which you can change hair, skin, facial features, and clothing) and move onto a mostly deserted island. There are tasks to complete including getting new residents to move to your island, upgrading living quarters, improving commerce, and collecting native species for a museum. As you complete the tasks, you get “money” or rewards. Eventually, you will decorated and can terraform the island. You can also visit other friends’ islands. Additionally, each month there are seasonal tasks and fun. My favorite aspects include trying on and purchasing new outfits (totally not me in real life), fishing, and completing mini-tasks.
