Ankha gifts an Espresso Maker

The first two weeks before university opens and the two weeks after classes start is the most exhausting period at work. Things have to be set up for students. I have to start hiring someone. New employees have to be trained. I have to troubleshoot the system. Ensure all technology is working. This four week period involve a lot of work and patience. Fortunately, we're on the third week of classes now. Then I receive a fitting gift from Ankha! An Espresso Maker. I'm still hung over the Monday break and I'm glad I had a day-off, but I need to get away from work. I need an extended self-care day with my Espresso Maker. Alas, I need to interview someone today and provide a lecture in e-format to a student. This game gets how I feel. The new letters in my mailbox are a hit and miss, but when it's a hit the game connects with me in a profound way. I don't open my letters immediately too. And there's at least 150 now.

Hamphrey says Hello!

Hamphrey moved in today! He's the perfect crank since I have Flurry on the island. Hamphrey looks like the inverted color palette of Flurry! Looks like there's another potential couple besides Marshal and Poppy. He camped out today, and I snagged him in a heartbeat. I'm missing Anabelle though but I'm already thinking of finding her back when I get another island. I'm pretty sure Hamphrey will be a fine addition. I only discovered him recently and I didn't know that he was in New Leaf. A cranky hamster does sound hilarious. More importantly, we can get those DIY recipes and reactions now!

Anabelle says goodbye

One of my starters in ACNH said her goodbye today. I've had Anabelle, the peppy anteater, for at least two years and I've always been shutting down her ideas of leaving the island. However, I've decided to let her go tonight. Anabelle was my first anteater on Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Letting her go had to be done as I need a cranky villager. But deciding to let her go was kind of a big deal, because she reminds me of my sister. Yet the town won't be complete without a cranky villager. Anabelle is the only viable option to go.  There are many memories made with Anabelle. She was a natural starter. I would see her walking on the paths I've made while the island was getting set up for two years. She would photobomb while eating ice cream on the beach, she often sent me gifted letters, and I like her vivid coat pattern. She's also wearing the Raglan shirt I gave!  Farewell, Anabelle! I'm sure we'll meet again someday.
