HAPPY NEW YEAR!


Hello, it has been a while… Welcome back!!

First of all I want to say that I am sorry for not posting more. Even tho writing gives me joy and fulfillment, I just haven’t had the desire for it as of late. I’ve been dealing with a lot of emotions and life changes. My heart is still healing from the losses this year. I won’t go into them at this time, I will in the future. I did not want my work to be brought down to the level I was on. It is not is place I wish anyone to be in. Not only that but there is real chaos going on in our country and world.

Usually I do a reflection of the year and all things good for Christmas. Then around New Year’s I discuss all that I want to see and accomplish. I had full intention of doing just that. Evey time I tried, I just couldn’t put my thoughts and feelings into words. Honestly, my heart just wasn’t in it. I did start and do still have some blog drafts.

However, they are not really life related. Mostly all just game talk. I’m sure those will be fun. I’ll get around to posting them probably in Febuarry. I again I just haven’t had the desire to write. Shoker I know!! Here’s why…

God willing. I say that very seriously. So much is going on right now the last thing on my mind has been sitting at a computer. Every day is so important and every person is a gift. I am still fighting my own sadness. Yet also saddened by all the hate and division going on right now all around the world.

It isn’t right nor healthy… I was raised that our words and our actions matter… That we have to be productive, and responsible. We have to be people of our word, loyal, honest, and examples of Jesus’s love. Why? Because it is right – Because it makes a difference and Because it is what would Horner God. He sent Jesus His so for us to be blessed out of love. (John3:16) We are to treat others how we wish to be treated. You say you may not care… But I thinks you do… No-one likes being neglected and treated poorly.

You nay not feel like you deserve love, nor feel loved. However you are loved and no one does. That’s why Jesus did what he did for us!!!

Now back to tbe chaos…. I still have a strong faith in God. Despite all the drama, and conflicts going around. It is so much more then a game of he said she said. People are attacking people, friends turning aginst one another over various reasons big and small. An example being: difference of opinion. I don’t want nor approve of violence or hate crimes.

People are not communicating well, even on the same sides. Things are being taken out of content and some are being cut off and silenced. For what? I am truly scared of the future at hand. We all have a choices to make…

I am not happy about all the forced silences going on.  It just doesn’t feel right. No matter what side your on. Violence and muteing has never been a good thing in my opinion. I won’t go further into that. I am glad I can freely  share  my words with you all still. I love our country and I’m very concerned about the future of it. We all have choices to make.

All I can do is be myself, stay positive, stay strong and keep praying. I hope we find some positive chances soon. Remember that you matter. You may not feel like you do, but I’m telling you that you are a treasure. You may not see it but the ones around you do. Even if they don’t tell you. I am telling you right now-

I encourage you to seek reasons to smile. Even if the reasons are small. Remind those you care about how much they matter to you as well. Try not to stay angry or hurt others on purpose. Treat others how you wish to be treated. Every day you wake up is gift. It may not be easy but we have to move forward. We do that one step at a time. We may not be happy and hardships are sure to come. But you can move forward if you choose to. It is harder to let life pass you by and have regrets Dont live a life of regret and anger.

We have to encourage eachother and set good examples of Christ Jesus’s love. Be sure sisters and brothers in Christ we are being watched and judged. We are humans but we are called to spread the gospel and we can only do so by developing a personal reallationship, truly knowing Jesus as our friend and reading God’s word the Bible.

Thank you for stopping by and giving me a moment if your time to share my thoughts and feelings with you. I am truly grateful for you.

Hyrule Warriors Difinitive Eddition. Yes Please!


If it is like “Hyrule Warriors Difinitive Eddition” < only available via direct download now> I am totally psyched… I love all Zelda games 🎮

It’s hard to talk a video while playing one handed. But here’s the only one I can share right now. The others are on my memory card. Its way better than I expected and if you are an avid Link / Zelda fan you should get the game.

I think it will be a great game even tho there are locked maps. Yet the maps are big. Hyrule Warriors Difinitive Eddition is awesome and has a playable storyline with storytelling. This game unlike Hyrule Warriors Calamity <yet to come out>

This one covers all the Zelda stories supposedly up to BOTW. Of course in thier its own unique way. I gavevbmno complaibts so far. This game is awesome. The play able characters, the stories are top rate!!!! I’m so impressed with the graphics!!!

I expect Age of Calmmity to be the same or better. I think it will be way more complicated than the predicted 30 hours. Especially since it’s supposed to play like like Hyrule Warriors Difinitive Eddition and be like BOTW. Also locked maps are hinted, so probably not open an world game like BOTW…. However the maps in this game are still big even if locked! I keep getting lost.

 Hyrule Warriors Difinitive Eddition -wich compileed all the previous Hyrule Warriors games together- is very story heavy… Especially the legend mode. So much so that you get annoyed if you have to replay a area. The cut scenes are long. After watching once tho you an skip. I love how it has a gallery tho where you can watch the cut sceens you’ve collected just like BOTW  does. So I expect  Age of Calmmity to be about the same. I love how it has a gallery tho where you can watch the cut sceens you’ve collected just like BOTW does. So I expect  Age of Calmmity to be about the same.   

In order to unlock playable aspects such as Fairies 🧚‍♀️ and other perks and game sections you have to play the Ledgend mode and the Advture mode. The Adventure mode is confusing to me but I’ll figure it out. It is where you get your fairy for ledgend modr and fairy food to level her up among other things. Also I found it really cool that you can rename your fairy!!! To me it makes it feel more like your story.

If you still arnt sure you want the game? Then you should check out this guy’s YouTube channel of his game play throughout the game.

https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-7t9DoIELCTaNipmD-W5tJ727C7c1z0N

That is about all I have to say about this game. I adore it if you couldn’t tell. I highly suggest you guys get it from your swich shop. Hard copy cards are rare and double, maybe trippple the original price now. The game came out Christmas 2018, but I got it October 2019. Why did I wait so long??? By far it is one of my most favored games! And I am telling you this for free. It is also a great way to vent your frustration and stress….. You will be saving Hyrule and the rest of the Zelda lands!!!! Have a wonderful rest of the year. God bless you today and always, good night 😴

Never Give Up


Hello all Good Day!

How are you doing? Especially with all the chaos and stresses that are going on with the crazy world right now. I know this year is extra rough for our family. Especially for mom and I. Not only did we loose my dad in April, after he survived so many trials so suddenly… We also lost some pets. My one of my parents twin cats, mainly my dad’s ran away, or or was abducted Early June… We’re still hoping she will come back. Then my Great Dane and best friend passed away less then a month ago. Talk about rough… I understand that some people may have it worse but this is extremely painful 💔 😢.

That’s not all of what’s been going on. I’m not going to mention the little things. Our whole family is struggling with so much right now… Mom’s been really strong. My parent’s are my real life heros for a reason. We were both in a deep depression. We are doing better tho. Taking it one day at a time. This depression was the 2nd worst I’ve been through. The thing about depression is you seem ok at some points then you get knocked down and out of nowhere. Its like a panic attack or anxiety attack without having the full symptoms. You feel numb, trapped, like a shell of a person, if even a person. Maybe a you are robot… I told my man. It’s like I have theses support walls up, but inside theres nothing but broken rubble. For the past several years I’ve been taking care and supporting my dad. We were very close and were together most of the day until he got better. Then he started doing his own stuff but it didn’t last long. He suddenly had cancer and ended up leaving us because of heart failure. Anyways…

It sounds funny but Frozen 2 actually helped us, especially my mom. Mainly Ana’s song “The Next Right Thing”

〰️❄〰️❄〰️❄〰️

“The Next Right Thing” lyrics:

I’ve seen dark before, but not like this
This is cold, this is empty, this is numb
The life I knew is over, the lights are out
Hello, darkness, I’m ready to succumb
I follow you around, I always have
But you’ve gone to a place I cannot find
This grief has a gravity, it pulls me down
But a tiny voice whispers in my mind
You are lost, hope is gone
But you must go on
And do the next right thing
Can there be a day beyond this night?
I don’t know anymore what is true
I can’t find my direction, I’m all alone
The only star that guided me was you
How to rise from the floor?
But it’s not you I’m rising for
Just do the next right thing
Take a step, step again
It is all that I can to do
The next right thing
I won’t look too far ahead
It’s too much for me to take
But break it down to this next breath, this next step
This next choice is one that I can make
So I’ll walk through this night
Stumbling blindly toward the light
And do the next right thing
And, with it done, what comes then?
When it’s clear that everything will never be the same again
Then I’ll make the choice to hear that voice
And do the next right thing

Neither of us could have gone through this alone. Not without the help from God / Jesus / The Holy Spirit, our loved ones and our friends. We still gave a long way to go but we are all pressing forward one step at a time with lots of love and  prayers.

I am starting to  remember who I was and who I am subosoed to be.  I want to hold on to that.

Remember matter what your doing this week, working or playing – Smile. It is a a choice we make. To let things get to us or to smile and move forward. knowing you can and will survive – whatever your going through:  Losses,  Rude people, things keep going wrong, etc. Whatever it is, know tomorrow is a new day. Look for the good in the bad, smile and show the world you won’t let anyone but you control how you feel. That to me is what a real warrior does. Now go have an Awesome week!!

🤔Depression seems to be going around….😔 Know that You matter❣ Know that it is ok to  admit that you are not ok and need help or people. THERE’ IS NO SHUH THING AS PERFECT ❣❣❣❣ We are humans, an all have issues, fults,  and needs. But also remember that you are AWESOME and needed!!!! Even if you don’t feel that way… It is the truth ❣❣❣

Animal Crossing New Horizons


Hello friends!

Yep. I caved and bought Animal Crossing New Horizons. Honestly it was a game I wanted. I really liked the game cube one and haven’t played animal crossing since college years ago.

Instead – I was on Maple Story, The Sims 4, Wartunes and other games like those with local and long distance friends. I didn’t plan to buy Animals Crossing so soon. But my niece and nephew came to visit and I thought it would be a good way to keep them occupied. Sadly it didn’t finish downloading until the very last day they were here. Booo…. 😭 Darn Slow 🐌 network 😑.! At last we got to play together for the day.

And again when I went to visit them. ♥️

After watching me play Dad decided to try because he was interested in the fishing aspect 🎣 😄. Okay I cohereseded him a bit.

One of my sisters also decided to make a house on my Island. She wanted to try the game before buying it. That eventually got my mom interested in trying the game as well.

My island development and game play was very slow due to lack of experience. ➕ I stopped playing for a while when dad passed away suddenly at the end of April due to heart failure. 💔

I couldn’t ssybit any better Freckles…. 💔💔

My mom lost intrerst in the game. I however found that playing this game and my dad’s character oddly gave me peace. Oddly it really helped me grive, mour, and gave me some form of closure. Strange as it may be. Playing my dad’s character helpes me feel close to him even though he is no longer here.

My island has a long way to go. I am spending lots of extra time crafting and swimming mainly staying in the month of April. I sometimes wonder, if I am the only one who has done this? Meaning -Played a family members in a game character or game who is no longer with you?

It still feels unrealistic that he’s gone…. 😅🙁💔 I wonder if I will ever fully over it? Probably not until I see him again in Heaven.

Honestly ACNH game seems really slow to start the first few weeks on the island. Espessially if you do not know what you are doing. There are tutorials extra. I but I really haven’t looked into any of that. I was eager to figure things out on my own. But because of that – My island is a mess and still in development… You can say I am just winging it. I was in April for almost 3 moths in game… Now I am back in June…. I play may way. I don’t think lingering behind counts as cheating….

If I could do it over. I think I would  have done more nook island hoping to choose who moves in. I would also have liked to have saved up bells before splurging on clothes and funiture. I  also wouldn’t have  time  jumped my first month away. Which was an accident… It upgraded my store from small to large… I however lost the joy of being smaller-sized longer. Yes I could start over, but Id loose everything I worked so hard on, including all my dads achievements. So not gonna happen…. Maybe  I’ll write my own advice post one of theses days. The important stuff that you need to know. A lot of tutorials sadly don’t get cover ¹the things people ask me the most about in just one place. And often they are wrong or ever changing info. I discovered Zack from Swich Force and Abdullah from Abdullah Nation who are on youtube.com They have been very helpful , entertaining, and encouraging.

My mom, sister and nephew  eventually  got thier own games and Islands. I am really enjoying  Animal Crossing New Horizons. With them – my awesome  family -teammates and my wonderful friends  help. I think being able to do things together and visit eachother is what makes this game so special! Again I adore the Sims games but you can’t really interact with people in real time with that game.

Because of my Family and friends I feel I’ve had a great start with growing my Island.  While having a good time making and making many great memories!!! Here’s more pictures!

Here are some  more pictures. 😞 Sorry the pictures are not completely in order. I hope you can be understanding.

I became so invested in “ACNH” I spent a good amount of money a variety of Amiibos from villers to npcs for me and my family… I have yet to use any. But I do intend to make use of them.

Lastly, I want to show off my favorite villaer. Anchovy. He is a lazy easy going, positive, abd friendly. He is a cute brown bird. Just what I need in a friend right now. He was one of the first fiveI had movevin. One of the three houses you have to build. Via Tom Nook’s instruction. He was the first of the three who moved in. I just love the ranch style, dirt floor home for him. It truly fits his personality, especially with his love of bugs. I feel it is much better then the casoino one they have for him say if he moved in not as your first five. That’s vehatvthe nookpoedia says his house would be at least for New Horizons.

Do you have any favorite Villaers? Any that give you a smile and enjoy?

When I’m free I visit mom and we game together ❤. Yes, you guessed it with our with Great Danes always by our sides. My silly Lilly.

I am sorry this post is so rough. I haven’t had much luck with writing lately. Anyways, I think I gave more then enough info for one post. I have more videos and images of ACNH on my Facebook gaming page. ONLYFOTHEGAMESAMJANE – but I have them marked as friends only for now. So I thought I would share my favorites with you here. Sadly I haven’t taken many good pictures yet 😕. I still hope you enjoyed thisvpost tho.

Goodnight and God bless you today and always!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2019


Hello All,

Christmas is my most favored Holiday of the year! This year and last year have been met with difficult times.  They weren’t the only  difficult Christmases we had. But we had a nice time. God is good!!

I often ask why the most sever issues in life come around during holidays? The answer I came up with is there is to much pressure  to make the Holidays perfect.  So please sit back, and enjoy the precious  time you get with your love ones,  if possible. and don’t fret the little mistakes.   The badly wrapped gifts, the gifts you forgot to mail,  the cooked meals. If you are alone then  do something for yourself, make the day memorable, and  enjoy it!!  Everyone-  Enjoy the little moments. 

Every day is a precious gift given to us. Don’t let let depression, loneliness, or  fear, keep you from finding the little joys in life. Dont wast anger and stress over things  that shouldn’t matter bit focus on what does matter. Make the most  out of what you are given and have and appreciate those and what you have in your life because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

The best gift you can give is Love and Support to one another. We are all waiting for someone or something. Don’t give up if it’s what your really want. Waiting is hard but while we wait we grow and learn new things about ourselves and our life around us. When the time comes and we achieve the goal at hand. It is better than ever imagine.

  God bless you today and Always!

I am here…


I have been on the go the past few months. I now have time to write. I think I’ll be getting a lot done too. Even with the crazy holiday season halfway over… I’ve already done much of the heavy work. I’ve been helping dad fix the driveway. The tree roots are raising the driveway up, and since they want to keep the trees we’ve been redoing certain areas and leveling the driveway out. First by removing the old driveway, using a aircompresser chizzle, then digging under the roots so they go down. then proceeding with re-taring the area. My main job is to dig up and shovel the old driveway ect, and replace the gravel with him…. Then together blowing out the craks and caulking the them up all along driveway to the road. Dad even did sone of the road as well… I’m always learning new things when I help dad. It’s not perfect, but it works! We got so much done, just before it snowed. We started before I left and finished after I came back.

Also while I was gone dad started redoing the back bathroom. He removed the old linoleum flooring and flooring and removeing the old toilet. I came back just in time to help him add the new stuff. Tho really he didn’t need my help. Dad is doing so much better then he was. I am truly impressed with his recovery. God is so good! We make a good team. We don’t always get along but we both work hard. We got it done just before company came!

Now I’m just gonna write while I relax in my pajamas. Just because I can! 😆 Yay- a writer’s life! I will get back to my youtube vblogs, my blog, and do some Facebook group this week I hope! I have a few more important tasks  first…

I will do my best to keep everyone updated so stay tuned! Don’t give up on your dreams or goals, any progress is still progress. So follow your dreams because you matter. Make sure you take time to breath and enjoy life too. My goal in life is tovspread joy and stop hate. I choose to be happy 😊 even when I don’t feel like it. Remember God supplies and miracles happen!I chose that book 📖 title for a reason!

Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!

The Forth and Last leg…Part 3


Hello Fellow friends,

Well, I am home now but I had a wonderful time with my man and his lovely family. I learned so much about him and all of them. We did so much with and without his family. My man and went on dates and walks. It was really nice. I got him some shirts he liked and some collector books he wanted. He got me a Totoro purse and wallet and some lotion and body spray too. It is not about the things, to me, the gifts are special because they are from the one I love! As for the rest of the family, they have to wait for Christmas…

When we spent time with his family as well as doing outings and everyday tasks.. We didn’t go to the beach or Disneyland but we did go to Medieval Times! I hadn’t been there since I was thirteen for my friend’s birthday in Florida. Here are some of the pictures I took. I hope they don’t mind me sharing them.

 

One weekend we watched movies and games. I even exchanged birthday and Christmas gifts as well with him. One of the weekends we had an outdoor bbq, watched a movie on a projector and did some rock painting, played soccer and other outdoor games.

 

I really enjoyed the one on one time with his mom too. We had a nice heart to heart talks. She even gave me a very sweet heartfelt gift from Starbucks as a surprise one night! It is special for so many reasons. It has all the state specialty emblems, I collect cups, it was a surprise, it showed she cared and was thinking of me.  I wish I could have done so much more for them! I wish I had got to know his dad more tho too.

 

I stayed for almost three weeks. When I had free time alone worked on writing my books in progress.

 

I can’t believe it is only a few days from Thanksgiving!! I look forward to coming back there often. It helps that the man I love has family in California. I totally felt at home with his family and in California. I was really nervous about staying with them but I think it went well. There was so much more I had wanted to do with them and for them. I miss them all so much. His family is my family as well. That’s how I feel in my heart. I never felt uncomfortable or out of place. I just wish I could bring them all back with me! It would sure make things easier for us all. California is one of the few states that I wouldn’t mind moving to. Though I am unable to take permanent residence there mainly because of my Medical specialists and health care requirements.

 

I can not believe I had to say goodbye. It really broke my heart. I cried so much. I keep telling myself it is not over tho and we will be together again soon. The most important thing is I have so many wonderful memories from this trip and all the trips I have been on this year. I can not express how much I appreciate everyone and everything.  To me making memories and spending time with the ones you care about is more important than anything else. Remember to take time for your loved ones and friends as well! I feel so refreshed and drained at the same time.

Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!
