And nothing like this happened as a result:
Instead, this happened:
Yeah, so I had ordered the 3DS a day before it came, so I didn't think it would be the package that I had missed. I ran to the post office after going for a run (lolwut), picked up this mysterious package, and opened it right outside. Bam. There it was in my hands. "Who sent me this?!," was my first thought.
The night before, I had checked the sender on the slip that says I missed the package and it was a Japanese name and they sent it to "Kat." I thought, "Who knows to call me Kat that lives in Japan and knows my address?" Apparently, I hadn't looked at the name right on Amazon, and it actually did end up being the seller I had bought from. Silly Kat. Well, I now know that Japan has crazy fast shipping. I also now know that Yamamoto Shogo is a famous baseball player in Japan because he has the same name of the sender that I googled. lololol.
Let's all take a moment to admire that form.
Truly amazing.Anyways! I was so excited while walking home and was still confused as to who sent it to me (it was I who sent it to...me...I...myself..ugh) that I missed a turn and got lost for a bit, but found my way back soon after. Sort of. Hahaha. ^___^'
So, this game is amazing. It's even more awesome that I understand a good amount of what they're saying, as it's in Japanese. Here's a few shots for you:
Nook is still as fancy as ever.
-You can change your socks
-The characters have a more human body
-There are longer dresses you can wear
-You can customize and design the outside of your house
-You go around town and pick the exact place you want to put your house
-You can learn how to swim (though I am not sure how yet)
-When you swim, you can dive and catch other creatures (There's a whole different slot list for those creatures, besides the bug and fish slots.)
-The 3D is actually pretty awesome
The list shall keep growing, I'm sure. I've been playing this quite a lot and don't feel guilty about it, which is really rare when I play video games these days. I think it's because it's in Japanese and I'm learning a good amount of vocabulary, practicing reading, and understanding grammar a bit better. It's so nice to be excited about a game again. I feel like I'm in high school again, being excited to be able to relax and come home to play Animal Crossing. Where's my beefaroni at? Oh gosh...
Speaking of insane food, yesterday after class, some of my classmates wanted to go to Burger King to try the same "black burger Bi-king challenge" that Grant tried. You know me and watching people eat copious amounts of food.
So naturally, I had to go watch.
Tom's second round.
This is actually Tom's 4th round. He was upset because he was skipped a few times and started hitting the "food wall" after waiting a long time. Sad service! But only 4 people were working and they were running around everywhere. They'll probably be relieved when this offer is over XD.
Evan - 2 burgers, 2 fries, 2 drinks
Daan - 2 burgers, 2 onion rings, 2 drinks
Tom - 4 burgers, 1 fries, 2 drinks
Wendy with Kirsty's help - 2 drinks, 1 fries, 1 onion rings, 1.5 drinks
They were planning on going clothes shopping, since we were in Shinjuku, but after eating all of that food, they decided to postpone that plan. lolol. Tom's hair was all messy at the end and I said he looked like a wreck. He was hurt. I'M SO MEAN. ^___^'
Today was pretty simple. I paid rent and my health insurance bill ^____^. Very exciting stuff. Haha. Here is something you probably won't see most places in the US:
lolol, slick? Kat, really?
As of yesterday, Tom's coins are all still on the balcony. I asked Yuuki why that might be and he said because people probably think it's a trick. I wonder if they would still think it's a trick if Tom put down a 500 yen coin. Oh man.
And here I am all adorable in Animal Crossing as a Bear (and in a tent).
I hope it's like the Gilmore Girl's Thanksgiving celebration.
