Happy Belated Birthday, AJW!

So... AJW's 3rd birthday or anniversary or whatever you wanna call it was on Friday the 26th. I completely spaced it (not that it's that important or anything, because it really isn't). But I still just want to wish this blog a happy belated birthday. :) Feel free to join in on the chime by making your entry to the giveaway below if you haven't already.

The Truth in Quotes

Hello people!

There's this old inactive blog I've been exploring the past year or two called Jamaa's Written Truth. It belongs to Goldfishypuppy, also known as XxFreeSpiritxX. She was famous during 2011 and 2012, and some part of 2013.

Anyway, one of her many interesting posts had a quote in it by an unknown Jammer. It reads:

"I don't care about rares. It's not like I can put them on my resume when I'm older."

I 100%, flat-down agree with this quote. If you didn't know already, a resume is a form you type up when you apply for a job. A resume is full of necessary information about yourself, like skills, talents, and other places you've worked.

Imagine that you won three medals for a state track meet, you love to play the piano, and you're great at math.

Now, imagine that for four years straight, your life was spent on the computer, playing Animal Jam, trading for rares. When you typed your resume, you said that you owned two long black spiked collars, three beta tiaras, a magenta furry hat, twelve den betas, and a pink top hat.

Which one of these situations will win the job spot?

Duh! It's so obvious!

The first circumstance will get to make a living as a wealthy chiropractor, and the other? An employee at McDonald's.

Do you get what I'm trying to say here?

I'm trying to teach you guys a lesson. To summarize:

Don't spend your entire life playing Animal Jam. It won't benefit you in the future. I promise. Eventually you may get bored of it, and even if the whole world is begging you to stay, including your buddies or subscribers or followers or fans or whatever, make your own choices. BE the bone aligner. DON'T work for the Golden Arches.

Topiary Shop

I hadn't realized this before, but now I know where all the animal topiaries went.

A charming little topiary shop, located on the forest floor of the Sarepia Forest! ^.^ I think this shop is actually kind of cute, although I would have been a bit more creative with the name of the store. Perhaps Topiary Treasures would be more fitting.

Contest Help

So I have decided I won't be hosting contests anymore. I bet you've probably already noticed that by the lack of posts on the contest blog.

While contests are fun, they are a lot of work for me. Several months ago, I started to dread pulling up contests because it was more of a chore than a hobby. Besides, with constant begging to set up more and more contests, whenever I'd visit that contest blog I'd always have a big ugly frown.

Although there are many exciting contest ideas I had in mind, it's just too stressful to organize them, especially with the limited time I have.

Therefore, I have plenty of prizes left that needed to be handed out. You can say it's my liquidation sale.

Do you think I should just host a giant giveaway, or should I host one of the following contests:

- Summer Fashion Show
- Comic Contest (with a side contest of a poem contest)
- Name-the-Shop Contest
- Design-an-Item Contest (with a side of a raffle)
- Guess-the-Alpha Contest

Comment your thoughts and suggestions below.

Thank you! ^.^

Not Your Ideal Escape

A great big number of Animal Jam's population plays Animal Jam because its their "escape from reality"; some sort of paradise they be who they are and do what they want.

But is Animal Jam really an escape?

Just take a look at all the qualities and traits the world of Jamaa has compared to our world today.

1. Bullying
Bullying is everywhere. Whether it's at school or somewhere else, bullying can happen at any time, any day. It's the same with Animal Jam.

2. Gambling
Flash trading/betting is a lot like gambling. But here's a tip to those who flash trade: you can never, ever, ever have a safe 100% trust in someone you meet online.

3. Stealing
I'm sure we've all had that temptation to scam/hack. Some of us were foolish enough to even listen to it. 

4. Money
Yup, money. Money on Earth is a lot similar to rares on Animal Jam, but the only way to get rares is either through fair trading, gifts, or scamming/hacking. And it doesn't help when at least 85% of Jamaa strives to become famous through videos or blogs. But you know what they say, nothing worth having comes easily.

3 Fun Pranks to Pull Off

1. Offer one of your rarest items for an item that doesn't exist.

2. Get adopted and act insane like a total lunatic.

3. While someone is sitting down at your den, silently slide some reindeer poop from the Jamaalidays underneath them.

Hello! ^.^ Jamaa has been updated today, so why don't we check it out?

Aww, cute! Piglets are adorable! Too bad they're in the Diamond Shop. Curse that blasted place.

FINALLY! An Adventure that ISN'T one of those seasonal Adventures with the same boring objective.

Ooh, a birds-only party! I wonder what it looks like. One comes on in ten minutes, so I guess I'll find out.

There are new Sand Castle items for purchase in Jam Mart Furniture!

Llamas will be arriving soon! Yay!

That's all, folks!

How-To Do the Spring Bunny Glitch

Too many people know how to do this glitch already, and there are some videos out there that explain the steps to it, so why not share it with you guys?

1: Change into your Spring Bunny.

2: Switch to an underwater den.

3: Quickly change into another water-only animal. While you are doing this, immediately switch to a land den.

4: When you know you've done it right, your bunny will be frozen.

5: Open up the customization menu and change your pattern to any color you like. If you want black flowers, do NOT have a pattern. If you want magenta flowers, DO have a pattern. The color of the two other flowers is based on the color you choose for your pattern.

6: Now refresh, and voila! Your pattern is glitched!

No Longer Active on Tabs

Hello everyone. As you can see, I haven't posted for almost a week, and that's because blogging about Animal Jam isn't very fun anymore. Playing Animal Jam is just as worse.

I will no longer be active on any tabs or pages. I probably won't even be actively posting, either.

Sorry if this disappoints you.
