Forgive me

January 25, 2012 at 6:13 PM | Posted in Uncategorized | 66 Comments

for not posting since my birthday. I try to update at least once a week, but obviously I haven’t been able to do that lately. In fact, I’m going to be taking a bit of a break. Not because I’m tired of Animal Crossing — on the contrary, I wish I could play it — but I’m going through a difficult and stressful time right now and need to focus on other things. I hope my friends and followers will still be around when I come back! If you’ve subscribed via email or the RSS feed, you should be alerted when I make a new post, and if not, you can simply check back every now and then. Bye for now, though I’ll still be reading my AC friends’ blogs! πŸ™‚

Update: I feel like an update needs to be made about this break since maybe some expected it to only be a few weeks. I’m really sorry about this, but I don’t know if I will be posting again anytime soon. During my break I’ve gotten used to the ways I spend time now, so the idea of going back to playing Animal Crossing and blogging about it is pretty daunting when I’m already so busy with classes. I hope you’ll understand these reasons; I’m trying to make something of my life, and at the same time, not spending so much of my free time on video games and the internet. Because blogging the way I used to — long picture posts almost every week and constantly working on patterns — was a huge commitment and time-sink. :/

  1. Sure thing Amy – it’s important to take a break when you need one! Take your time; we’ll wait ^_^

  2. See you soon Amy!

  3. Yeah like Teru says it’s important to have a break πŸ˜›
    I hope you can still looking for my blog

  4. I donΒ΄t write very often…
    Most because of that i forget.
    And I don’t have very much to write about.
    But iΒ΄m looking forward to wi-fi with you sometime! πŸ˜€

  5. Awww, everyone has those times, in fact I haven’t posted a lot either lately, I’m on exam week and it’s hard wanting to play Animal Crossing or blog when you can’t 😦
    I wish the day had 36hours and 24 of them where of daylight and the 12 others to sleep πŸ˜›

  6. Relax as much as you want Amy πŸ™‚ Just like all the other people said, you need rest. πŸ˜€ We’ll miss you.

  7. Thanks for the support everyone, I appreciate it!

  8. Amy, I hope you’ll add my blog to your list to read (I just realized I totally spammed you. Sorry!). I’m making the first post right now, and I finally figured out how to add pictures!

    Also, did you get back onto your ACC account at all? If not, then I think it was hacked, since your account has been online a lot lately.

    • What’s your blog? If it’s not bookcoolness, you may want to have comments link to your AC blog from now on. Looking forward to seeing the pics!
      I haven’t been going to ACC much lately, but as I tend to do with most of my social media accounts, I’m pretty much always logged in (so I don’t have to sign in all the time). I guess I should log out more though πŸ˜›

      • Ya, I made it link the AC one now.

        • Still links to bookcoolness. πŸ˜› You could just copy and paste the URL.

          • How it’s your break Amy? I hope you would come back posting soon btw no pressure πŸ™‚
            Can you answer my new reply of your comment in my blog? Please it’s important πŸ™‚ see you soon πŸ˜‰

          • http://acnotebook.wordpress.com/

            There it is. I’m adding my blogroll tomorrow.

            • Yay cool, nice blog name πŸ˜€

  9. Did you pay to get this amazing blog? Like… umm… upgrade it? perhaps?

    • sorry. that sounded like im a stalker πŸ˜› Don’t worry… I’m not a creeper πŸ™‚ You know kinelle? (A.K.A ck) she is my cousin… She uses my 3DS friend code all the time, so technically you already added me… I guess.. Oh by the way, my cousin is in β™₯ with your blog.

      • Nope, if I payed for this blog it would look a lot better. xP Thanks, though, I appreciate your comment! And you don’t sound like a stalker haha.

        • But how did you do that header and background if you didn’t pay for it? Oh by the way, I just started a blog because my cousin won a bet… >_<

          • Most themes will let you change the background and header. In your Dashboard, go to Appearance on the left sidebar, then either Header or Background and you’ll be able to upload an image to use. πŸ™‚

            • But how did you get to do this big background without having to tile it? and how did you do that header that… IS AMAzing?!

              • Oh by the way, this is my blog… (that my cousin made me make >_<) http://acwwtown.wordpress.com/

                • Sorry if I keep on commenting… (I bet you think I am a bother… Sorry) I sent you a spotpass not on swapnote.. Hope you get to reply ^_^

              • The background is a screenshot I took from ACCF and I made the header β€” sorry, don’t know how to answer these questions. xD
                Cool, I hope you enjoy blogging despite starting because of a bet. Thanks in advance for the note ^_^ I’ll check my 3DS later but right now I have to go to class.

                • I had to go to the dentist and swim team today… actually, I go to swim team every single day… (I am forced to)

  10. Hey Amy! I hope you’re doing great and you’ll soon be back to blogging!

    But I came to ask you a question, how do you get to comment on Kiya’s blog (on blogspot)? I’ve been trying multiple times with a wordpress account and it asks me permission to share mi ID, I say yes and it doesn’t upload the comment to her blog, since you comment a lot on her blog I wanted to ask you how you did it.
    Thanks! πŸ™‚

    • 1) Below the comment box, I select my profile as WordPress and enter (not my WordPress username like it says) my domain name, actownrecord. Then I press continue.
      2) I’m back to the comment box and I press Publish.
      3) It redirects me to a page that says “Trust this site with your identity?” where you can enter your name and nickname. It also says at the bottom “Do you want to pass your https://actownrecord.wordpress.com/ identity to http://www.blogger.com?” I don’t know what that means so I always say “Yes; just this time.”
      4) After that, it directs me to the comment box again, but this time it’s like a preview of what the comment will look like. There’s also a little captcha code you have to enter to prove you’re not a robot. Then press Publish.
      5) It redirects me to that “Trust this site with your identity?” page again, so I do the same thing that I did before. (Enter the same name and nickname and press “Yes; just this time.”)
      6) Then my comment shows up on the site and says it’s published.
      .
      It’s much easier if you have a Blogger account, though. I used to have one to follow a bunch of music blogs but I don’t remember what it was… Good luck this time! πŸ˜€

      • Yikes, terrible news… Seems like Kiya deleted her blogger blog! 😯
        Anyway, thank you so much for the help Amy! I’ll keep that in mind if she does another blogspot blog, did anyone know anything about this??

        • No, I don’t know what happened. 😦 I commented the other day, checked back later, and it was gone. I hope she comes back to her WordPress one at least?

  11. Hi Amy, It’s February, You haven’t been updating lately, If there’s really anything i can do to help (i hope i’m not annoying) please let me know!
    and yay! My laptop is now.. fixed. 😈
    Now, To have me some Adobe Photoshop!!! >:)

    • I know, I don’t know what to say other than it’s a continuation of my break. It began as a way to focus on school more because I started a more difficult, stressful set of classes this semester; then I found out that someone I’m close to is dying of cancer. Animal Crossing just doesn’t feel important enough right now to dedicate the time it takes to catch up and maintain this blog. But I haven’t quit, I’ll come back when it feels right.

      • Oh my god! I’m so sorry Amy, I hope he/she feels better in short time!
        Take your time with this break Amy, and count me in too if you need help!

        • Thanks for understanding!

          • OMG, I’m sorry for rushing you a little bit (did i? xD)
            I feel sorry for your relative, I hope she gets better soon. πŸ˜₯
            .
            If there’s anything i could do to help, just ask!! >_<
            Good luck with school and Best Wishes for your relative!!
            (My shitzu happens to have a kidney disease or something.., This explains how he pees every time i let him outside… o_o)

            • haha, sorry
              .

              “I hope HE/she gets better soon!”
              hehe, Just realized you didn’t state his/her gender. πŸ˜†

              • Aww, thanks!

  12. Sorry if I copied your thing whatchamacallit, Kinelle suggested it to me πŸ˜₯ I’ll change it right away

    • It’s okay πŸ™‚

  13. Amy, I left you a message on SwapNote. Just saying.

    • Awesome, thanks! Urgh I gotta go charge my 3DS though…

  14. WOW!! in this one post, 39 comments??? This one’s the 40th. πŸ˜†
    your blog’s really popular now!! πŸ˜€ I knew i had high hopes for this blog, You made a awesome blog, maybe someday your blog will be more popular as Mayu’s πŸ˜€
    .
    Even today, They still hope Mayu’s gonna come back, The latest comment i did there is like saying she’ll never come back but people won’t just leave without a good bye, right? πŸ˜₯

    • That’s just because this post has been at the top for a while, lol.
      I don’t think Mayu owes us anything, especially those of us who didn’t ever WiFi with her or start commenting on her blog until after she was gone. Until we have as many posts as Mayu did (a lotttt), I don’t think it’s right to judge or complain about her quitting. A goodbye post would have been nice, but there may be circumstances we don’t know about.

      • Mayu might be having some real life issues, I’m not complaining about her quitting or anything, I’m accepting that she has to live her life, I understand each and everyone of us has a life than “ac blogging world” πŸ˜†
        .
        and wherever she is, I hope she’s happy, She bloomed all the hearts of AC Players and being an inspiration to them. πŸ™‚

  15. Kammile it’s right! Your blog it’s very popular know πŸ˜› Good job πŸ˜› And I hope you can post soon again πŸ˜‰

  16. Mayu…seriously…I don’t mean to be morbid or anything but she may as well not be alive anymore…seeing the way she just abandoned her blog, like totally stopped everything, just that last post about returning from Thailand (I think) and nothing else. No comments, no updates, nothing. For 2 years.

    Yeah.

    Guess we all sort of stopped blogging these days. Ah well.

    BTW kammile, you have a real life shih-tzu! OMIGOSH. I LOVE SHIHTZU’s. I have 8 of them in Nintendogs. You are one lucky dog owner!

    • I hope not. D: I saw a few comments by Mayu that she never expected to play AC:WW for so long but that it was addicting, so I think after being away from her town for a while (and knowing that there would be weeds and all her hybrids would be gone), it seemed like a good time for her to finally quit.
      Anyway, it’s really great to continue hearing from you, and that your goodbye post wasn’t the final word πŸ˜€

      • Phew, Thank goodness your still here, I taught you’ll be gone after your last words but i guess that wasn’t your last after all. xD
        .
        How did you know i had a pet Shihtzu?
        haha,maybe i put some words about my dog on my blog…
        hmm… i just don’t remember. xD I’ve only told Kiya that i have shihtzu though. πŸ˜† haha,she has knows a lot of blogs about pets. ^-^

        • You mentioned it in an earlier comment in this post.

        • My last words lol XD

          Don’t worry, I still regularly check out your blogs and comment and stuff, so I’m never far from AC :p lol

          Once you play you can never really quit I guess.

          • I agree, Animal Crossing can be very addicting, especially blogging about it. I just love it!

            • haha,yeah, i took a 2 week break away from AC and now, i feel like playing it all over again!!!

              I’m glad you’re still here though. πŸ˜†

  17. OMG!!! 50 comments for 1 post??? waw!!!! πŸ˜€ That’s a lot Amy πŸ˜‰ Good job I have to say to you congratulations your blog it’s fantastic I’m saying this with a face of awesomeness! πŸ™‚ Well I hope you can finally end the break soon ’cause all your fans (including me) we are waiting for more of your awesome posts (I love the “awesome” word πŸ™‚ ) Well no preassure by the way πŸ˜‰ Hope you can coma back posting too πŸ˜€

  18. sorry: I hope you can *come back posting *soon πŸ˜† 😳

    • Thanks, but I don’t think having comments on a hiatus post that has been at the top for a while is much to be proud of. πŸ˜› And I’m sorry about the continued break. I’ve updated this post with more info.

      • I so the new info, and I understand you ’cause I think when I will have your ages I would be very serious trying to be a lot of time studying (like emma watson πŸ˜† ) so I understand you a lot but I hope you can return someday and I hope you don’t stop commenting in the ACWW blogs/other, Amy study a lot and do something good for your live πŸ˜‰ That’s the only important thing πŸ™‚

  19. Hey amy.. Did u get the swapnote of the dude? I meant umm… the… Reggie guy about the http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo_direct? There is going to be news about the 3ds tomorrow… Idk about u but idk when he will come tomorrow, but I think you should check it out πŸ™‚ This is just to let u know if u haven’t gotten the note about it πŸ˜€

    • it is not out yet… You can tell if u look at the date… The most recent one was last year at october 21… soo, the next one should be feb. 22.. ohkay? πŸ™‚ :mrgreen:

    • Ohh, thanks for the info! I’m sorry, haven’t been on my 3DS for several days now. I’ll go check. πŸ™‚

  20. Btw, why are there ads in your blog nowadays?

    • I don’t think it’s just my blog, I’ve seen ads on other WordPress sites too now. And I haven’t changed anything, so it must be a WordPress change.

  21. Sneaky wordpress >:P

  22. Good for you, Amy! I can only wish the best for you and hope you every now and then comment or post in this blog and study a lot to become someone important in life! With your age it’s a great time to start taking things seriously and because your so smart I’m sure you’ll go very far in life! πŸ˜‰
    Best wishes from me!

  23. Hey Amy long time I don’t know anything about you 😦 I hope the break it’s almost at the end πŸ˜‰ And I hope too you can study a lot for being the thing you want in your life πŸ˜‰ So maybe I see you in Jemma’s party (if she change the time ’cause on sunday I can go) πŸ™‚ See you there

    • Thanks Jemma and Emma! πŸ™‚
      I wish you could’ve come to the party, would’ve been cool to finally see your AC character. πŸ˜›

  24. Heeey, I’m still checking if everything’s still alright? πŸ˜†
    .
    Your blog is back to it’s background and header.. haha, spring. Oh the glory,
    It kinda reminds me i have to change my background image sooner. πŸ˜›
    Sooo… I hope you come back, It’s already March and the whole month of February, You weren’t posting but i saw your update on this post. πŸ™‚
    .
    I hope your relative is safe and sound and i hope he/she can fight cancer. 😈
    Go! Go! Go!

    • I want to change my background and header again, too, this is hopefully only temporary. πŸ˜› I haven’t been playing, but I’m going to post today since I took pictures at Jemma’s spring party.
      Thanks for your support, but the cancer has gotten significantly worse. 😦

      • yay, i new post.. gotta comment on that one. πŸ˜‰
        Even if your relative’s cancer got worse, it’ll become better!! just think positive and that she’ll overcome it! >:D
        You have my full support!!
