Thank you and sorry...

Hey everyone,
This post won't be like any other of my posts, it will be rather serious.. As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting for quite a while. The whole reason for this lack of posting is school and my outside life, I don't have free time anymore, because it's either school-work or vacations. I've been over a lot of pressure this whole year (Projects, tests, exams etc.) It has been rather challenging for me to post daily or even weekly. And for all of that, I sincerely apologise. I'm sorry for inactivity on this blog/Aj or pretty much any other social websites on which I would be on quite often. I really hope you understand that it's hard and as much as I'd love to, I cannot post anymore. I don't think I'll ever be able to post as I once used to. I'm sorry. I don't think I will be able to continue posting or updating this blog anymore. Of course, I will leave it untouched and won't delete it, so that I could come back at some point and start fresh. But, trough all these months, this blog has grown a lot. And I want to Thank you, reader, follower or viewer for helping me reach this goal. I could have never imagined that this small community we call AJH actually would grow so big and so powerful. I know, I know, we have 28,000+ views by now, but that's still a lot. At least it is to me. It's more than I ever could have wished for. So once again, Thank you so much for sticking with me trough all these months that actually seemed like years and helping me reach this amazing goal!
And until the next time we meet, I wish you all good luck in your lives!

Space Lamps and Important notes

Heya Jammers!
So sorry I haven't posted in the past 3 days, but I was just way too busy upgrading my school grades, doing homework and studying (School can be rough sometimes. And by sometimes I meant always) But since I'm back for now I'll post the 3 new items that have showed up in Jamaa! But first, the important note. I will post the Play Wild Beta pictures some time this week (January 17 - January 18) so be sure to come back and see if there's anything up! Now comes the item part! We have 3 new space themed items, which are the Sun, Moon and Star Lamps!
 They look amazing ♥ I love space and the secrets that hide beneath it so much. Over 50,000 sightings are recorded every year, but almost all of them are fake or are just strange objects/lights in the sky. Also, AJH is celebrating it's 1st Birthday this month! The date has passed but I will host the party like at the end of January. I can't believe that it has been a year since I launched AJH and posted the first post ever. A lot has changed since then and so did I, so did the level of every reader's awesomeness. It has rose a lot! I want to thank EVERYONE out there, even the ones who don't like this blog for viewing it and leaving positive/negative comments. (Hey, don't judge me, negative is still something) I really hope I can post more this year but I'm not really sure if that might happen, since I'm going to go to a high rank school so it will be a lot harder for me to post, sorry :c But that doesn't mean I won't try. I think that the posting times will change a lot.
Also, I'm opening up Author Auditions today (There will be a separate page with all the steps in it)
It has been rather a while since I included specials in my posts, like facts and stuff like that. If you have any ideas you can share them in the comments, if I use the idea I'll definitely give you credit for submitting it. (If you have a blog or some channel you want to get more views on, you can also include that in the idea comment and I'll make a link on my post) That's pretty much all for today, The new items, the big Thanks to all of you awesome readers. I'll pack this post up with this hilarious cat gif I found a while ago but wasn't sure about uploading!
That cat has got #swag and #sass ♥w♥ (I never thought I would use hash tags..) Just look at that kitty with the can on her head, such epicness. By the writing on the can you can tell the cat's either from Japan, China or Asia.That's all for today, be sure to come back and see if the Authors Auditions are up . I will starting writing it once I put this post up. So until then, Happy Jamming!

A bunch of new items and a note

Hey Everyone!
Today is one beautiful Tuesday! The snow is falling, it's slippery and so cold! Gotta love that kind of weather! ♥w♥ Along with this fine day we have a brand new item, the Pool table!
This is one awesome item, though don't you think it would be awesome if the definition would be more accurate and there would be an actual pool inside a table. That would be my kind of item :o This item comes in a lot of colours and is clickable, so when you come across it, be sure to click on it! There are also some other items that I forgot to post about in the past days
This is the Pink Flamingo, you can find it in Jam Mart Clothing. It is actually in the Play Wild Beta game, of which I can't seem to upload pictures of. I'll try again tomorrow, hopefully it will work.
 The Crocodile Claw, this was released along with the update (I forgot to add it in the post, sorry)
The Firefly necklace has made a comeback to Epic Wonders!
Mohawks have also returned! :3 That's all for the items. Now for the note part, it has come to my attention that some people are rather mad that I sometimes get off the theme of Animal Jam and start posting about Pokemon and stuff. But to be fair the title is Animal Jam Hail. Don't understand it yet? Each part has it's own definition
Animal - Nature
Jam - Food
Hail - Weather Condition
So that means I'm able to post about Animals, Food, Weather. And how about this, since we have the Nature part, that means:
Nature - Humans, Plants, Animals
Humans - Things that were created by humans (Technology, Art, Music)
Technology - Any kind of device
Device - Things that you can do on it (Games, Apps)
To put it all in one sentence; The possibilities of post themes are endless. That's pretty much all I have to say for today! And that note wasn't targeted at all of you, just the ones that think me posting about different things is ''bad''. Also, Animal Jam isn't gonna last forever, it will close at some point and this blog will change. A lot. The title, the articles maybe even the whole template, who knows? So just enjoy it while you can, cause even the best dreams can disappear at any moment. Lastly, today's gif!
http://www.gifsplosion.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/man-falling-down-on-slippery-street.gif 
This happens to me all the time, I'm walking on the streets and suddenly, le wild ice appears! :o Also, I have found this awesome gif with cats, but I'm not sure if I should upload it because some might complain about it because one of the cats says a ''bad'' word (I don't think it's a bad word though) But the ''bad'' word only flashes for at least 2 seconds or so, so I don't think it's that much of a big deal. That's all I have the time for today! What other items would you like to see come out next? Do you find the new items awesome? Leave a comment below and Keep On Jamming!

News, items and Suspended

Hey Snowflakes!
Sorry for the past 3 days that I didn't post on, I have been really busy with school and it got really hard once again. (I don't think that I'll ever be able to post the way I used to before, sorry >_<) And on top of that I also got suspended from AJ for no reason. Thank you, AJHQ, thank you so much. (I wasn't able to get screen shots of some of the items because I had some problems with my Internet since Thursday. Anyways, we have the first Jamaa Journal of 2015! Here's the Jamaa Journal:
The kawaii Pandas are here! •w• Finally! I have been waiting for them to come out since I saw them in that leak! Of course, I bought one, checked out their costume thing, and the items there are just way too cute to be true :o It can cosplay as a bee, a red panda, Shifu and some other thing. (Still haven't checked out the special ones in the pet parties)

 Such cuties! ♥o♥ So far, I have 2 pandas with 1 that is cosplaying as a bee and the other ones as a red panda :3 Sadly, they're in the diamond shop.
Next page announces the Panda Adoption and the whole new Bounce House Party! (That party is awesome and the stalker Panda returns...) 
You can find these banners all over Jamaa, and when you click on them...
This little board thing pops up and tells us that if we adopt 50,000 panda pets, AJHQ will adopt a real-life panda. I'm not even sure how to feel about that, hopefully they mean to adopt it and name it, not bring it home. Because let's face it, giving one of the most endangered animals in existance to AJHQ doesn't sound like such a good idea. Also, when you click on the ''Adopt'' button, a board pops up where you can adopt a pet panda! Next is the Bounce house party, another thing that was leaked before it's release
 
The party was on when I just got on, so I was lucky enough to get in. There's a nuch of stuff you can do inside. First of all, the most important part of the whole party, the bounce house itself!
When you enter, your animal and pet, yes, I said pet start to automatically hop around, which is rather insane! You bounce everywhere! The floor, the stairs (That's a bad idea if you want to do it in real) 


Look at the scenery, the party takes place in an empty forest :o (Sounds creepy enough)


The only places you can't hop on automatically are the little net platforms before sliding. (In this picture I chose the hop action)
Cheetahs were held as the only animal in Jamaa that sits straight. Not anymore.
There's also a store there with some inflatable furniture parts!
The sad thing is, most of the items except for the Inflatable Ottoman are for members only. I think it's rather unfair in this case. If you want to check out the furniture's actual size before buying, there's the whole set (I think) in the right corner from the shop.
They seem comfy.. (I was wrong, there's no lamp in the set preview)
Next, we have another Den Item Contest from AJHQ! This one is rather interesting, since we can choose from; Deep Space, Pizza Parlor and Paint Studio! And as the last one, there are 2 themes that I like and 1 that I don't like that much. The one I don't like most is the Deep Space one, because it seems kinda boring, now the Paint Studio on the other hand, you can use the items to make it look like your den is under construction and stuff like that. I also like the Pizza Parlor one, but not as much as the Paint Studio for some reason and it's kinda weird, since I always like the food ones better :o Be sure to vote for your favorite!
WOW! Another animal is coming soon! Hopefully that this year, it won't be for diamonds, because it's annoying that every animal last year in the Diamond Shop. Though, before I solved this, I thought about the details in the pieces. 2 Horns, Talons, Wing parts and I figured it's an owl and then I solved it and here we have it, the new animal is...
An Owl! I have actually waited for these animals to come out for SO LONG. I thought that these would come before the Eagles because they're much smaller. Hopefully they won't disappoint and be in the Diamond Shop. We should really send AJHQ letters begging them not to make it for Diamonds. Because if they're not for Diamonds, they have a chance of becoming for everyone at some point. But wouldn't it be awesome if they came out for gems and for everyone? That would be like the best thing ever! The only thing that annoys me about these new animals is that AJHQ always revelas how they will look like. I liked the Polar Bear one where we had to guess what animal was it, or the Cheetah one! But now, it takes the interesting out of the mystery. That's pretty much all I ahve to say for today. I failed to upload the pictures of the Play Wild Beta to my computer so I'll try again tomorrow, so stay tuned! Did you like the new update? What about the owls, are you happy they're coming? If no, why? Leave a comment below and Keep On Jamming!

Patch of Snow and New Years Party

Hey Snowflakes!
What an amazing day today was! It finally dropped to 20 degrees cold! (I don't know why but I just love it when it's cold/wet/dark or all at the same times. I'm a strange person. Hmph) And along with this snowy day, today's new item fits in perfectly with it, it's the Patch of Snow!
Pretty awesome eh? By changing the color you can change the amount of snow there is. So that makes 19 items are for all Jammers out of 32. I think that's pretty fair, especially since everyone can buy the items likes Lit Wire Reindeer and the ornaments. That was a pretty smooth move from AJHQ, don't ye think? Also, as I promised yesterday I'll post about the New Year Party! I know that it might be too late and the party might be leaving tomorrow, since it's update day (Hopefully) So here are all the shops and items you can get in the New Year Party. The location of the party still starys the same and is a snow fort den, though there are some new items added like:
This is the clothing shop, you can see it right when you enter the party. Here's what you can buy on the clothing shop:
The New Years Party hat is a whole brand new item and gladly, it's for everyone! :3
 This is the den item shop which you can find on the top floor of this party. Here are the items it's offering:
Those are some sweet items, eh? And there's also a music shop in there:
You can find this when you enter the fort itself, here are the tunes it's offering:
 
That's pretty much for the party! Also, I have signed up for the Beta Testing of an upcoming AJ App ''Play Wild'' and I got accepted, I played the game and took rather a lot of screenshots so I'll try to post them on tomorrow's post so be sure to come back and check the game out! I'll have to end this post for now, sadly, but here's a little gif to put some spark in to the end:
http://rubmint.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cache/0b458_funny-pictures-gif-chillin-in-a-winter-wonderland.gif 
Dang, Lucky cat :o He's chillin' in it like it's his litter box! (Cats sometimes do that, and by sometimes I mean almost everytime) Do you have a new years resolution for 2015? Share it in the comments below and don't forget to Jam On!

New Items, Jamaalidays, New Years and so much more!

Heya Jammers!
Before I say anything, Happy New Years to everyone! I hope you all had a great News Year celebration and will have an awesome year in 2015! Whew time went by in 2014, it's like 2014 wasn't even here! In other news, I am back to posting after my very long ''day off'' which continued for 3 or 4 maybe even more weeks, and I am SO sorry to everyone for doing so without telling anyone! Just that it got really stressful at the end of the year since we had like 4 exams on the last week >_< Later I got a little bit sick and didn't feel like doing anything so I just stayed in bed and drank some warm tea. Gotta Love Tea ♥ But since I'm back, I thought it's time to get back on tracks and start to post again! Here's the Jamaa Journal from the last update on 2014
This is the first page of the Journal and it tells us that Pet Foxes have returned to Jamaa! I was starting to miss these fuzzy wittle pups. (I know they're not actual puppies but they are in the canine family)
On the next page, we have news about a new seasonal adventure to go with the Jamaalidays theme, Jamaaliday Rescue. In this adventure you have to collect gifts while you try to reach the centre of the maze. Both sound familiar. When you get into the adventure a Deer meets you at the start and tells you what happened, then you're pretty much free to run around and do what you want. But, this adventure can't be found around Jamaa or in the Adventure Base Camp, you can only find it in the Party List
When you click this you simply get teleported to the adventure. In this adventure, the number of presents is 450, but I actually collected 455 our of 450. In case you don't believe, me here's a picture to prove it:
The Present number is at the top left corner. There are some pretty fabulous prizes in this awesome adventure like Snow TV, Pine Cone Trees, Phantom Ice Sculpture and I think you can get the Ice Mira Statue in this as well. I'm not sure though...
On the 3rd page we are told of a lot Jamaaliday based items coming soon to Jamaa and trust me, there are a lot. And I mean a LOT. I'm not gonna name all of them, but here are the pictures of every single new Jamaaliday based item that I missed to post about:
Ok so, these are all the Den items that are in the Jamaalidays theme, but how many items are there? Let's count? 3 • 2 • 5 +1 = 31 (The floating dot is the multiply symbol where I come from) 31 items... that ain't bad... ain't bad at all... whew! And 18 out of them are for everyone! Great job AJHQ! You really made these Holidays special for everyone! Including the gifts, where they gave out the first Balloon that's for everyone which is just crazy now that I think of it! Next are the items from Jam Mart Clothing
 
These are all the items that are Jamaaliday based and New (I added the Top Coat and the Snowboarding helmet because I didn't post about them) Once again, we have a few items that we never actually saw. There are 14 items in total that are new and only 5 of them are for everyone so that's a little bit disappointing. Gotta give credit for the creativity though! The new Reindeer slippers are just so dang cute! :o Next come so Treetop Garden items!
So there are 21 new items in total but only 1 of them is for all Jammers, the Carnation flower. I still think that non-members deserve to have at least some of the topiaries, like all of the animals that are for everyone topiaries could be for everyone. Because this is sad to look at. Next are the rest of the items in Jamaa
Epic Wonders (Furniture orb)
Shiveer Shoppe (That yeti mask is just so amazing *o*)
Diamond Shop (Dang such awesome items, especially the cloak!)
Epic Wonders (Clothing orb. Simply love these! These help out a lot with the Sawsbuck outfits :o All I need are the spring Sawsbuck antlers which would include Cherry Blossom flowers)
Sunken Treasures
Bahari Bargains. That's all for the new items, so let's move on with the Jamaa Journal!
Ok, to be honest, 2014 wasn't really the best year. It wasn't even close to as what it was like in 2013. The only thing I actually liked were the parties, the animals, the dens and the pets. I actually liked everything just that it would be better if everything wasn't for members only and for diamonds. Pretty much every single new den/animal/pet that has come out in 2014 was in the Diamond shop. Hopefully we won't have that problem in 2015. And wouldn't it be awesome if they made another Member animal to an animal for everyone? Like the fox, or raccoon, or rhino or pretty much any animal, as long as it's for everyone, I'll be happy.
And this is the last page of the Journal which reminds us about the Polar Bear pets that you can get by redeeming any membership gift card. I think that the polar bear pets will come out at some point into the diamond shop, so don't worry if you don't get one. That's pretty much all for today.. whew, that was a lot of typing. If I remember I'll post about the New Years party that's on in Jamaa! But until then, I say farewell and leave you off with this gif of a talented Kitty that could beat you badly at Jenga:
http://cdn.smosh.com/sites/default/files/2014/12/cat-playing-jenga-cute.gif 
That kitty is boss.And look, she's/he's not even trying! ♥w♥ That's all I have to post about for today, so see you next time! What was your favourite moment of 2014? How did you spend your holidays? Were they the holidays you would always remember? Leave a comment below and don't forget to Jam On!
PS: I was cleaning my computer files and accidentally deleted my signature so I'll add it here later
