Why I Can’t Go On the Internet on April Fools

Why I Can’t Go On the Internet on April Fools

Some holidays, like Christmas, I spend months in advance planning for and counting down to. Including a daily “countdown” that my sister and I started doing when she lived across the country and flew home for the holidays.

Some holidays, like April Fools, I think of once or twice late in March with the vague revelation that it’s coming up soon and then totally forget about again until someone dyes my milk green or something. Continue reading “Why I Can’t Go On the Internet on April Fools”

Q&A with Erin

Q&A with Erin

So lately, I’ve been getting all kinds of messages from you guys asking about me, my gaming habits, my Instagram secrets, and more.

It’s really sweet, but I have to be honest here for a minute; I really didn’t expect so many people to be curious about lil old me!

I do my best to get to everything, but sometimes I just run out of time. So, to address that, I thought it’d be fun to take some time today and answer some of the common questions I’ve been getting! Continue reading “Q&A with Erin”

For the most part, the Mario games I’ve played have been some kind of spin-off of the original. You know, things like Mario Kart and Yoshi’s Island. They’ve made me fall in love with the characters, the world, and the stories of the jump-happy plumber, but I’m not terribly skilled at more traditional games. There’s one reason:

5 of My Favourite Resources for FFXIV

When I first started playing Harvest Moon: Tale of Two Towns, I quickly learned that giving your animals treats to boost their productivity was not as easy as it sounds.

Each animal requires a specific number of each of four types of treats, and nothing is consistent between types of animals.

The easiest way to keep an eye on everything, at least for me, turned out to be a very precise notepad with each animal’s name and a tally of how many treats each had been given to reach each new level of productivity. Sure, I goofed on it a couple times, but for the most part, it worked. Continue reading “5 of My Favourite Resources for FFXIV”
