Happy Earth Day!

Hey guys! It's Penguin here, back and ready for another post.
This week I finished my school's exams. They're the biggest tests of the year, and a lot of stress is now gone. I do have a few more less important tests towards the end of the year, but as I just said, they aren't as big.
Now, getting away from the subject of school, I will he on Animal Jam much more now! Summer vacation is nearing and I'm really excited for the upcoming months.
For the new item today, you can visit the Diamond Shop and find it. It is the Spring Flower cloud.
I really like the new clouds being released. They are all unique.
The Daily Explorer update is next, so here it is!
 Yes, today is Earth Day. I honestly didn't do anything to celebrate it today, but April 22nd is an important date. Our earth supplies a home for all of us and we really need to help it out more. Clean up any trash outside, take a walk, etc. All of these will help. I always make sure to pick up litter myself- it's like a habit.
Finally, I think I know where AJHQ for the inspiration for the eggstravaganza. Below, there is a screenshot of the prize for the 2013 Egg Hunt. One of the eggs hatches into a crocodile. I personally think AJHQ remembered this and got their eggrstravaganza idea from it. What do you think?
There's nothing else to speak about in this post, so that's the end of it. I hope you enjoyed, and I'll see you all next time!

Christianity In Jamaa, And 'We Are The Bloggers' Chapter 1!

Me: HI JAMMYS!!!! WHATS UP JAMMYS!!!! HOW ARE YOU JAMMYS!!!! JAMMYS!!!!
You guys: Uhm, you did that same exact intro last week, and STOP CALLING US PAJAMAS 😡
Me: Oh, oops. Well then, UGH I CAN'T BELIEVE I HOSTED THIS COMMENTING CONTEST!!! I LITERALLY HAD TO STARE AT THE SCREEN PUSH MY FINGER ON THE COMPUTER, AND COUNT ALL THOSE COMMENTS
IT WAS LIKE 103... 104... 105...
UGH
UGH
UGH
IM NEVER HAVING THAT CONTEST AGAIN 😖
You guys: Dude! You had that contest months ago! And why so many caps? My goodness.
Me: Oh, sorry. Lets calm down a bit.
Koala bears.. 🐨🐨🐨🐨 they-
You guys: *walks away*
Me: *is totally jamming out to koala bears, ignoring everything* Oh- right- the post.

Okay.. Maybe I went a bit extreme with that overly long intro.. But um- oh well, it was worth it 😊.
You guys: Mmhmm. Just keep telling yourself that.

Ahem, anyways, let's get on with this weeks Tuesday post!

So, this is a blog post I've been wanting to do for a long time, actually. And I may even make it into a video if I can.

A blog post about something that I've noticed last year, and this year.

A blog post about something I'm passionate about.

Christianity in Jamaa.

Yes, that might sound far-fetched, or crazy, but it's true. I do believe, there is some level of Christianity on Animal Jam.

But not every member of AJHQ is okay with this..

Just 2 moderators.

How do I arrive at this?

Let me explain,

On Animal Jam, multiple moderators work on different moderation tasks, such as approving comments on the Daily Explorer, approving masterpieces on the Daily Explorer, and moderating the chat.

Well, I believe there is 1 Christian moderator for the masterpieces, and 1 Christian moderator for the Daily Explorer.

As for the masterpiece category, I think there was a Christian that approved this piece:


Theres no doubt about it, that this is indeed, a cross.

I once heard from my friend Ja983, that this masterpiece had to be sent in over and over again, to become approved. But one time, AJHQ finally approved it.

What if, AJHQ had just hired another masterpiece mod, and they decided to approve this piece? A Christian masterpiece mod, perhaps?

Also, AJHQ approved this masterpiece:


Again, theres no doubt that this is a cross masterpiece.

I believe this one was approved faster then the one by spikethefrog, and it was made after that one was approved.

Could it be, that it was the same moderator, that approved the one by spikethefrog? Or maybe just someone who thought it was just a 't'? I'm not quite sure.

Now, about the Daily Explorer moderator.

I kept trying to get a comment approved, that said 'Remember, God made YOU!'. AJHQ would not approve it. But I tried again, and it approved!

I believe a few days later I tried again, and it got deleted.

I tried again, it approved.

It kept going back and forth, from being deleted, blocked out, or approved.


So, I believe there is just 1 moderator, that's a Christian, that is approving these comments. Or, it could be nothing, but it really could be something like this.

 Finally, the chat on Animal Jam.

Did you ever notice, that if you don't have free chat, you can still say Christian?


I thought this was quite interesting, however, you can not say Church, Jesus, or God.


B-b-b-but you can say Goddess and Godzilla 😑.

Being able to say 'Christian', I think is just respect for different beliefs, because you can say Muslim, Jewish, and Catholic.


What do you think of all of this? Is there 2 Christian moderators? I think this is a question, that may not ever be able to be answered, but it would be amazing if it could be, by maybe even AJHQ themselves.

And now, for the weekly story chapter!

Last week, I did a sample chapter of 'We Are The Bloggers', and this week, I'm releasing the first chapter.

The sample chapter is a bit different than the way I decided to write the story, but I still kept some of the same aspects, just took out the part when I log onto Animal Jam and see all my friends.

I hope you enjoy the first chapter, of 'We Are The Bloggers'. ^.^

Chapter 1

"Today broke the record in this state for the most heaviest rainfall in over two decades. And it wouldn't clear up until around, oh, maybe 11 PM tonight. And now, back to you, Jane." The whether man said in his happy, peppy voice. I groaned, as I flopped onto my bed, stomach down, staring at the small TV. "It's a Saturday, and it just had to rain." I murmured to myself, in a low voice. Every Saturday, me and my family did something special. Like going for a relaxing walk, or going shopping. But this week, there was a heavy downpour, ruining everything. "Well I guess I could go on-" I said, but the loud breaking news on TV, broke my thoughts. "This just in! A girl found a portal in her bedroom closet!" A ladies voice, whom I assumed was this 'Jane person' the whether man spoke to, said in a loud, booming voice. "What?" I mumbled, as I almost shrieked with excitement. The TV flashed to a young middle-school aged girl, who stood in her bedroom, with the news microphone in front of her. "I couldn't believe it, when I saw this weird, green portal, with a magenta frame. Me and my friends always joked about finding a portal, that we could all visit each other with. We even wrote stories about it. But now that it's real, I'm just in shock." The girl said with joy in her voice. I stared at the TV, awestruck. "Green portal.. Magenta frame.. Friends joked about it, and wrote stories about it.." I mumbled to myself, as I count all the clues she mentioned on the news. I gasped. "That's.. Swirlshine!" I exclaimed, as I leaped to my feet, and stood with my jaw almost on the floor, as I continued to look at the TV. A man behind the camera laughed slightly. "Thats absurd. No such thing as a portal, that can take you to your friends." The man said, and made it sound like it was utterly ridiculous. "Go through it yourself, you'll see." Swirlshine said with a smirk. "Alright, and I'll prove it's not a portal." The camera man said as he opened her closet door. The bright green light flooded the TV screen, and suddenly, as he went through it, the screen was filled with floating swirls. Then the screen went black. "Huh?" I said to myself in alarm. Then it hit me. "The Blogger Portal probably only works, for those who believe it could be real.." I thought to myself with a nod. At that moment, a bright green light shone in my closet. My heart pounded wildly. I slowly approached it, and carefully stuck my hand in it, until it couldn't be seen anymore. I quickly pulled it out, and thought for a moment. "If I go, I may be lost in some vortex forever.." I mumbled to myself. "But I believe it's real," I continued. "And God will help me." I said with confidence. I quickly pulled a backpack out from under my bed, that was already packed, in case of an emergency. I slung it over my shoulder, and looked throughout my bedroom. "You've always wanted this, now your going to get it. The greatest adventure you could imagine." I said to myself with a smile. I turned around, and stared at the portal. I slowly, but surely, walked into the portal. "Here goes nothing." I said to myself, as my view slowly became a swirly vortex.

Comment down below if you enjoyed this chapter, and what you think will happen next!

Heres this weeks Bible verse!

Psalm 103:2-3

Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.

Remember, God made YOU!

Stay positive, be yourself, and spread God's Word everyday!

Rare Item Monday! + Jam-Mart Clothing Count: 6

Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! And I'm back with another Rare Item Monday post! But before I get to that I hope you all had a very Happy Easter! But lets not waste time and get right into todays post!

Todays Rare Item Monday is located in Jam-Mart Clothing, making this weeks Jam-Mart Clothing Count: 6.

Todays Rare Item Monday is the Rare Silly Arrow!

It is located in Jamaa Townships Jam-Mart Clothing. It can be found on the eighth page in the clothing store. It is for sale for 900 gems and it is members only. The colors of the Rare Silly Arrow are blue, purple, and red.

Thoughts: I tried this on my cougar and it looked quite funny on! Maybe because my animal looks terrible, but who knows. I think this is a fun item though! It is up there in price, but I'm just glad its under 1,000. This is not an item I see myself using, but I bought it anyway, just because its fun looking. If you want one make sure you pick it up today!

As always, bye Jammer's! And ~Jam On!~

Happy Easter AJC!!

Greetings, friends! Who is it? It's Arctic- back again with another post!

Firstly, I'd like to make an announcement to those of you that don't know:

Gracie has sent me an invitation to become an author on her blog: The Animal Jam Friendship Community! I have accepted the invite, and will now be posting there on Fridays. Don't worry though, this blog is still a priority! I will continue to post here every Sunday and otherwise manage the blog!

Now, let's get going shall we?

Just in time for Easter, we've got some excellent Springy items in stores. In Jam Mart Clothing, we have the Flower Tail:


I actually like this item. Though it's expensive, I'm sure it'll be great for a lot of outfits! In Jam Mart Furniture. we have the Mossy Wall to match the Mossy Path:


I adore natural items like these- I can totally see myself using one in a den!

And now, it's time for a very Easter-y:


Just in time for Spring (and Easter!) I'll be doing a Springy Jammer Sundae!

When you stumble upon an egg:

weknowmemes.com
Unfortunately, Spring does have its consequences:

memesuper.com
Hahahahaha, this never gets old:

askideas.com
And finally, this pun:

bustle.com
Now it's time for the factual part of this post:

Our word of the day:

Akimbo: Of the arms: to have one's hands on their hips.

I stood akimbo, looking out at the beautiful day!

Our fact of the day:

The first spring flowers are usually daffodils, dandelions, irises, lilacs, lilies, and tulips!

Cool fact! Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to be searching for those eggs!

See you next week, enjoy your Easter!

Mossy Stone Pathway, AJ Academy DE Update, Glitched Basketball and Secret Pig Topiary Item

Penguin is back for another post. He also has a challenge for himself: to write an entire post in 3rd person. So now, Penguin thinks that the post should begin!
Penguin is thinking about showing the updates today first. He found the new item, which is in Jam Mart Furniture:
Penguin thinks that this item is unique, and a good feature to have in the AJ community. (Literally, since it's brand new, Penguin likes that.)
Secondly, Penguin wants to show you the Daily Explorer update!
 Now, there are two more things Penguin would like to share in this post: first of all, he found a glitch in his item inventory today. When decorating a den, Penguin noticed that a Basketball was very out of place.
Isn't it a weird glitch there? Penguin thinks so.
The other thing Penguin would like to show you guys is the new secret item. It can be found by going to the Spring Cottage den, and you must go all the way right to a Golf Course to find it.
And see the Pig Topiary? The one that Penguin is directly parallel (or, he thinks he is) to? Click on it, and the item is available for purchase.
Penguin hopes that helped you!
Now that's the end of this Saturday post. Penguin is glad you read it, and will see you all next time.

Reacting To Old Blog Posts, 'Fame' Chapter 9 - The Finale Chapter, And 'We Are The Bloggers' Sample Chapter!

Me: HI JAMMYS!!!! WHATS UP JAMMYS!!!!! HOW ARE YOU JAMMYS!!!!! JAMMYS!!!!


You guys: Three questions. Why are you calling us pajamas, why are you being so weird, AND WHAT ON EARTH IS ON YOUR HEAD?
Me: Because I can, because I can, and because I can 😇
You guys: THAT IS NOT A CLEAR EXPLANATION.
Me: I know! :D But it's a lot better then saying my explanation in Spanish, right?
You guys: Um- either way we still wouldn't get it.
Me: Thank you! :)

Me: Okay! :)
You guys: ...
Me: :)

Hey guys, welcome back to another Tuuuuesday post! That was a very crazy intro, to go with a very crazy post..

Todays post, is going to be a post that I've been wanting to do, either on AJC, or my blog, The Animal Jam Friendship Community.

A reacting to old blog posts, post! 

When I first started blogging, my posts were seriously, utterly, horrible. And I could probably point out 10 flaws in each one of my first posts. So without further ado, lets get to the reacting post, starting with my very first post on my blog.

---


Oh dear oh dear where do I start?!

Alright, first of all, why did I put 'Graciepopstar91' at the top of the post? And it's totally off centered..
Why didn't I capitalize the word 'Jammers'?
Why did I spam exclamation points?
And why on earth did I say '(I'm loving this heat and playing in the water haha)' that just sounds.. Strange.. And I think I said that because I was reading a book that I was overly obsessed with, and the character made some remark about how they like the heat.
Thats just..
No.
Why did I put that?!

Heh heh..
Next one.


The title is even bad.. I didn't even capitalize 'wild', and I should of, because it's the name of a game..
I still didn't capitalize 'Jammers'.. What was wrong with my grammar?
Oh my gosh, and of course I put '(like iPhones and iPads!)'.. If someone has an iPhone or iPad, their gonna know it's an IOS device.
Oh dear, the picture didn't even come through! 
*Says all proudly* "I was a beta tester too!!" Too much pride/excitement, Gracie. Too too much.
And of course the exclamation point spam.. 'Cya then jammers!!" 
Wait
Did I-
No..
I seriously put '(btw this was graciepopstar91 haha)'? 
Of course it was me.
I was the only author on my blog at the time..
And I put text language in my post. I didn't even capitalize 'BTW'.
This is a shame..
A shame.

Lets jump into another post. This one is from June 30th 2015.



So... I literally thought I could make a cupcake out of fondant, and frosting? I think that might be a challenge for professionals, and I thought I could make one? Aww. How cute.. 
Oh dear.. I didn't capitalize the 'i'.. Oh dear.. Oh dear.. 
I just-
I can't.
*Looks away*
Aww, I'm proud of myself! I finally put 'Remember, God made-' wildlife.. I didn't put 'you'.. My tagline.
*Sigh*

Well, after reading this post, you probably feel a lot better about your first blog posts, or first stories. Because mine will forever be the worst. 😊

And now for the second part of the post, 'Fame', chapter 9.

Sadly, this is the last chapter of 'Fame'.

I had a lot of fun writing it, and it's honestly some-what sad that it's over now.

But I am, quite happy the way the 'Fame' story turned out.

So without any further ado, here it is! 'Fame' chapter 9 - the finale.

---

Chapter 9

Ja looked at me, tears flooding in her eyes. I bit my lip, holding back tears myself, and jumped up and hugged her. As I did, the tears I was holding back dripped down my cheek. "I'm so sorry.." I said, sobbing. "It's alright, Gracie. We forgive you." Ja said with a smile as we broke out of our hug. I looked behind her, and there stood Coolcat, Lost, Swirlshine, Sarah, Custard, Arctic, and Fox. I wiped the tears from my face, and smiled even wider. "But hey, I'm glad we got this experience. Going to JamCon is a Jammers dream. And really, it's all thanks to Coolcat and Sarah." Fox said with a smile. "What?" I asked with confusion. "I found the Famous Jammers email addresses, and emailed them about your channel." Sarah explained. "And Coolcat told Wisteriamoon your phone number." Arctic added. I sighed. "And it all got to my head.." I mumbled. "Hey, it's alright. we forgive you." Swirlshine said happily. A happy feeling came over me as well. "These are friends. YouTubers will never make the cut in my eyes." I thought to myself as I stared at them. "I'm never going back." I said lowly to myself, as I turned my head, gazing at the park. Coolcat smiled. "You came with the YouTubers, how are you going to get back home?" Swirlshine asked me with confusion. I sighed, remembering that 'minor' detail. I pondered that question for a moment. "Well, I'll be a 'bold banana' and tell them I'm just not coming back home with them." I said as I winked at Swirl playfully. She laughed. "But who will take you home?" Fox asked from behind Custard. "I got an idea, my Mom can take you to the Airport." Coolcat joined in. "You think she would?" I asked with hope. Coolcat nodded. "Yeah, she knows were best friends." Coolcat reminded me as she lifted up half of a 'BFF' necklace I got her a while back. "You still have it." I said as I smiled. "Of course. I knew this day would come soon." Coolcat said with a twinkle in her eye. "We better get going, the Famous Jammers are probably going to leave soon, it's almost five!" Lost said as she started to lead the group to the center of the park. A nervous feeling came over me as we walked. What if Kate wouldn't let me leave, since I was technically her responsibility while we were in Boston? I shivered at the thought. I just couldn't go with them. My pace quickened, just wanting to get this over with. But then the thought of what the Lord at whispered in my ear. "Surely this will be taken away from you." That gave me hope, knowing that the Lord always keeps his promises. As we approached the autograph tables, Julian ran up to me. "Gracie! Why did you and your friends come back? You gonna bow down to me now?" Julian asked, raising his head with pride. "Um, no. I was coming to talk to Kate, I'm quitting." I said firmly, moving out of Julian's way, to continue walking. "What?" He said, his voice fading in the distance. Me and my friends quickly walked through the crowd, trying to find Kate. "There she is." Arctic said in a low voice as she nodded her head slightly toward Kate. I took a deep breath, and walked over to her. "Kate?" I started, as I stared at the lady. "Yes, Gracie?" Kate said as she smiled at me. "My real friends are taking me back home. I'm quitting being a YouTuber." I said boldly. Kate sighed. "We're gonna miss you Gracie.." She started as she looked at me sadly. "But it's your choice. As long as your with your friends and a trusted adult, I'll let you go with them back home." She said to me with a slight smile. I smiled back. "Thanks, Kate. And thanks for taking me here." I said happily. She nodded. "Anytime." She replied. I motioned for my friends to follow me. We headed towards the parking lot, and I looked at my friends. "Ready to go?" I asked them, hoping they'd agree. It had been such a long day, I wanted to get out of the Commons Park. My eight friends nodded, and I grinned. "My Mom was gonna take us all out to dinner. Do you wanna come, Gracie?" Sarah asked as she happily walked over to where Ja was standing. "That sounds wonderful." I said with a broad smile, as I slid my purse off my shoulder, and looked for something in it. "What are you looking for?" Custard asked with a slight tilt of her head. I pulled out nine band bracelets, that said 'Friendship' on it. I gave them out to all of the girls, and saved one for me. "I was going to give this to the YouTubers. I'm glad I waited." I said with a smile. "This is to show, that we will always be friends, no matter what happens." I added, as I slipped my bracelet on. They all smiled back.

Later that night at dinner, the adults got a table, and me and my eight friends sat at our own table. "This has been a pretty crazy day, huh?" I commented. They all nodded. "But it was worth it." Fox said with a grin. "You know, I was thinking.." I started, as I looked at the eight girls. "What if we all created a blog? And we all write for it." I said thoughtfully. "Yeah! But what would we call it?" Coolcat wondered aloud. I looked down at my bracelet I was wearing. "How about 'The Animal Jam Friendship Community'?" I suggested. "To show that our friendship will never be broken. And the nine of us pretty much are like our own community. The community of friends." I finished, waiting for the girls to put in there feedback. "That sounds great." Arctic piped up. Smiles went all around, as we made plans for our new blog. From that moment on, we were no longer just friends.
We are the Bloggers.

The End.

TBC...

Dun, dun dun dun dun dun...

*Cues credits*

Ahem, anyways,

Please comment down below how you liked the final chapter!

---

The end of the story, is somewhat a cliff-hanger, surrounding the blog. Because I couldn't just stop 'Fame', and let it go, I had to make a sequel for it.

It will be called 'We Are The Bloggers', and the first chapter will come out next Tuesday. But for now, here is a sample chapter!

---

One year after JamCon..

Sample Chapter

I peered out the large square window in my bedroom. Rain poured heavily outside, flooding the roads. I sighed deeply, and slowly walked over to my bed, and sat down. "It's a Saturday and we can't even do anything." I mumbled to myself as I picked up my laptop that was next to me, and set it down on my lap. I opened it up, and decided to log onto Animal Jam to see my friends. 'Nice Jammers make the best buddies!' The loading screen said, as the world icon spun around, indicating it was still trying to load. Jamaa Township finally appeared on the screen, when it did, I looked down on the den icon, that said '11' on it. "Eleven people are at my den?" I thought to myself, in shock. I quickly clicked the icon to go to my den. There in my den was Coolcat, Lostfairy, Sarah, Ja, Fox, Custard, Swirlshine, and Arctic, and also some of our new friends, Kara, Violet, and Tiger. "What's going on?" I typed quickly, in alarm. "We really need to talk to you.." Kara said, quickly replying. Even though I couldn't hear her voice, I felt like something was going on. "You wanna tell her, Swirl?" Coolcat asked, as we all spread out in my Masterpiece Gallery den. "Is everything okay?" I asked the eleven girls with confusion. "Well, it all started yesterday morning, when my Mom told me I needed to clean up my room. As I was doing so, I noticed this weird, bright, glowing light in my closet.." Swirlshine typed. As I read what she said, my heart started pounding. "I opened up the closet door, and noticed a portal, with a magenta frame.. Just like me my friends made up about-" She typed, but before she could say anymore, I interrupted. "The Blogger Portal.." I typed quickly.

---

Since there is already two other Blogger Portal stories, this one will be slightly different, and with a unique twist.

All of the other stories will have already been finished, and and released, in my story. And with the information from the other stories, we learn that we can go through the portal, and will be able to see each other.

But in Sarahkey8's Blogger Portal story, everyone gets trapped, and cannot come back. That will happen in this story too, and we all remember that happened in Sarah's story.

But the twist on this, is that no particular person trapped us in the portal, it's just not everyone has this portal, if they do not believe the portal could be real.

In the end, theres only one person that can get us back home. Through the power of writing.

So it will be like theres some references to the other Blogger Portal stories, but completely separate, and it's own story.

In my story, it will be like the other stories are fictional, but this really happened to the eleven bloggers.

What do you think will happen? Be sure to comment down below.

Thats all for this weeks post, so here is this weeks Bible verse!

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who said, "Let there be light in the darkness," has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.


Remember, God made YOU!

Be yourself, stay positive, and spread God's word everyday!

Rare Item Monday! + Jam-Mart Clothing Count: 5

Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! I'm sorry this post is a little later then usual. I was super busy today, and my computer is giving me problems still. It took me over five minutes just to log into Animal Jam! But anyways, I know you don't want to hear about my busy day or computer problems, so lets get onto the post!

Todays Rare Item Monday is yet again located in Jam-Mart Clothing, bringing this weeks Jam-Mart Clothing Count to 5.

Todays Rare Item Monday is the Rare Hypno Glasses.

It is located in Jamaa Townships Jam-Mart Clothing. It can be found on the thirteenth page in the clothing store. It is for sale for 850 gems and it is nonmember! The color scheme is dark blue,*or purple*, light purple, and green. 

Thoughts: Hooray for a non member item! This has to be the first one in ages. AJHQ should release at least one or two non member RIM items each month, in stead of one every one and a half to two months. But I'm sure non members are happy about this! I think compared to past pricing, 850 isn't so bad. Maybe a hundred or two more then it should be, but still.

This personally isn't an item I would use so I did not buy it. But that doesn't mean you feel the same way! If you like this item, make sure you pick it up today!

As always, Bye Jammer's! And ~Jam On!~

Forgetfulness!!

Hey Jammers, Arctic here. And I woke up this morning and realized, I completely forgot to post! It's been so busy that it entirely slipped my mind. Thus. I'll only be featuring the item today!

A while ago, AJHQ released the Rare Grass claws for a Wild Weekend (wacky rares!). We have the normal version of the item in stores now - the Grass Claws. These items come in eight different shades of grass for your grass wearing pleasure!



I'm not entirely sure how you can make claws out of grass, but to each their own! Be sure to buy this item for 650 gems at Jam Mart Clothing, and be careful about grass stains!

I'm so sorry for how mega short this post is guys, I'll do the factual part of the post, but won't have the time for a Sundae!

Our word of the day:

Aa: A kind of lava that makes jagged masses with a light frothy texture

Yes, this is actually a word!

Our fact of the day:


I'm not entirely sure if this will work, so try this with caution!

New Spring Phantom Items, DE Update and Red Spot in Kimbara Outback

Hey guys! It's Penguin here and I'm back for another AJ Community post.
This week has been pretty rough for me. Well, school has been the problem. I have lately been getting many problems in math, but now I'm feeling slightly better. Sometimes I wonder why I worry when everything turns out alright in the end...
Now, let's get on with the post! There are many new items in the Diamond Shop, called Spring Phantom items:


These items were released for one of the mini updates, where the front page of the Jamaa Journal is changed.
Secondly, here is the the Daily Explorer update!
 Finally, there was a weird "thing" I found in Kimbara Outback today. It was like a red blob. Here's what I mean.
If you want to see it for yourself, it's in the bottom left corner on the land. Now, as far as I know, this isn't associated with any animals from the Journey book. So what is its purpose? What is it, anyways? Comment your thoughts below!
This post is pretty much over now. I hope you enjoyed it, and I'll see you all next time!

Non-Member Outfits, And 'Fame' Chapters 7 And 8!

Me: Happy Tuesday to you.. Happy Tuesday to you.. HAPPY TUESDAY DEAR AJC VIEWERS.. *squeaky voice* HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU!!!
You guys: Thank you..?
Me: YOUR WELCOME! NOW LETS HAVE SOME CAKE. *Throws bold banana cake to everyone*
You guys: *crunch* EWW YOU DIDN'T SEPERATE THE EGG FROM THE SHELL?!
Me: Oh, you have to do that..?
You guys: *Nodding, with gross expression on faces*
Me: So you gotta peel the bananas too..?
You guys: Someone get us a trashcan.. 😷
Me: Wow. And I put so much effort into it. LOOK AT THE WORDS I DID IN FROSTING! *Points to sloppy frosting writing, that says AJC*
You guys: Very.. Nice.. 😷
Me: 😇
You guys: Not.. Really.. 😷

---

Okay, that has to be the most wacky intro I've done yet.. 

Anywho, lets get right into todays post! 

Again, I was pretty clueless on what to post about, but then I got an idea. I would post about Non-Member outfits!

Lately AJHQ has mainly been focusing on giving members new benefits, which has been leaving Non-Members quite upset, because they haven't had new features in a while. 

So I thought it would be good, to show a features Non-Members do have. 

They can still make wonderful outfits, unlike the new Club-Penguin Island, where Non-Members actually can't have any clothing items on. 

Heres some Non-Member outfits you can try, by using all Jam-Mart-Clothing items!

Blue Giraffe: 2,200 gems
Giraffe: 1,000 gems
Head Flower: 350 gems
Ribbon Scarf: 500 gems
Clover Bracelet: 350 gems


When making a new look, it's normally good to start with 3-4 main colors. One color for the base, one color for the fur/ears, one color for the pattern, and one color for the eyes, or you could use a color thats used in the fur for the eyes. Also remember to make the colors match. Thats super important when making new looks. So blending warm colors with light colors, like I did above with the light teal, and gray.


On the Giraffe, I thought the black and silver worked well on it, and made it look really cute! This was probably one of my favorite Non-Member outfits I did. 

The New Jammer is my new backup account 😜
Though there all store bought items, I think the items together still super cute together!

Heatwave Giraffe: 1,500 gems
Giraffe: 1,000 gems
Head Flower: 350 gems
Lei: 150 gems


With this look, I started with 3 colors instead of 4, and made it somewhat Spring/Summer looking.


I made the Lei yellow, because the base color is yellow, and the Head Flower orange, to match the fur/ears, and eyes.


I think this is another really cute look, and fits perfectly with the upcoming Summer season.

Teal Seal: 1,845 gems
Seal: 1,000 gems
Head Flower: 350 gems
Necklace: 45 gems
Friendship Bracelet: 450 gems



Another look where I just used 3 colors. I love teal and white together, so I thought they looked really nice on the Seal.


For the outfit, I used *gasp* a Necklace 😜. Though their not typically used in looks, it tied together nicely with the black gem, and white band, on the seal.

Chapter 7

Me and Snowy raced inside the Airport, to get our luggage. I was in a daze, just imaging what JamCon would be like, and what Famous Jammers I would meet. Slam! I ran right 'smack-dab' into a girl with reddish brown hair. "Sorry!" We both said in unison. I noticed she wore a red, long-sleeve turtle neck shirt, and something about it seemed so familiar. I looked down, and saw she had a iPad in her hand, that had an Animal Jam case on it. It suddenly hit me. She was, "Karalee?" I asked, my heart beating wildly. "That's my username on Animal Jam.. How did you know that?" The girl asked with confusion. I laughed slightly and smiled widely. "Because I'm Gracie." I said, with joy in my voice. "Oh." She said slowly, as she scratched her neck. "Well I uh- I need to get going. Nice seeing you, Gracie." Kara said, as she walked the other direction. I was confused. "Oh, bye.." I said with a sigh. She must have found out about me being famous too. I loved the feeling of being famous, and having fans, and I wouldn't give that up for the world. But I did miss my friends. I was so torn on what to do next.
After we got our luggage, we stepped outside into the warm summer air. I saw a large blue SUV parked right near the sidewalk. "Is that our rental car?" I asked with hope, as I stared at the SUV. She nodded and smiled. As I approached it, the door flew open, and saw Bepper had opened it. A wide smile spread across my face. "Gracie!" She said with excitement. "Come on in!" She said, motioning for me to come inside the large SUV. She scooted over a seat, and I sat next to the door. I looked on the other side of Bepper, and saw Wisteriamoon next to her. I waved slightly with a smile, and she smiled back. Snowyclaw got into the passenger side of the SUV, and buckled her seatbelt. Kate the community manager sat in the drivers side. "Lets get going." Kate exclaimed. "Whose Aparri, Julian, Gelly, and Narwhal riding with?" I wondered aloud, as the SUV slowly starting to drive away from the Airport. Someone from the seat behind me tapped my shoulder. I spun around, and saw Aparri and Julian sitting behind me, Bepper, and Wisteria, and Gelly, and Narwhal in the very back. I laughed. "So thats where you guys were." I said in a sarcastic tone. As we drove along, I felt like I was in a dream. Riding with all the famous Animal Jam Youtubers, was incredible.
As we approached the park, I noticed a group of girls, standing near a large oak tree. "That looks like, no no, it couldn't be.." I thought to myself, keeping my eyes on the group of girls. "Is that Coolcat and the others?" I smiled slightly, hoping it was.
Kate quickly found a parking spot, and we all piled out of the car. Squeals came from all around, as kids of all ages saw us. "Here we go." I said in a low whisper to myself, taking a deep breath.

Chapter 8

Fans screamed loudly, as we approached the large Boston Commons Park. "Oh my gosh! Theres Gracie!" A girl with light brown hair exclaimed with joy. I smiled slightly. We stepped onto the freshly watered grass, and Kate paused to look at us. "Alright," She started, as me and the rest of the YouTubers stopped to face her. "Bepper and Aparri, your table will be over here," Kate said, as she pointed to a large table near a skinny tree. The two nodded, and headed over there. "Snowy and Gracie, your table is across from Bepper and Aparri." She told us with a smile. Excitement bubbled up within me, as the two of us walked over to our table. "I can't believe this is really happening." I said with a happy sigh. "Yeah I-" Snowy started, but got interrupted by fans that were running up to our table. I glanced at our table, and noticed two stacks of paper, and two Animal Jam pens, to sign autographs with. "Gracie!" A girl who was standing at the autograph table said happily. She had almost blonde, brown hair, that was tied back in a ponytail. "Hello! Do you want an autograph?" I asked, as I grabbed a piece of paper, about to sign my username on it. "No." She said with a slight shake of her head. I looked at her, confused. "I just wanted to see you. I'm your buddy Custard!" Custard exclaimed. I bit my lip, unsure of what to say. "Well, it's nice to meet you Custard." I said with a low smile. "Get out of my way!" A young girl said, pushing Custard out of the way to see me. I sighed deeply, as I watched Custard walk away, and join the group of girls, that were still standing near the large tree. "What I'd do to hang out with them.." I thought to myself, sorrow coming over me. "But what can I do now?"
It was late afternoon, and my hand ached from signing so many autographs. "How about we take a break?" I asked Snowy, hoping she would agree. She nodded. "That sounds good." She said, as we both stood up. "No, we will not." A girl said angrily off in the distance, her face burning red. "Whats going on?" I wondered aloud, as I quickly walked over to where the girl was, trying to see what the fuss was all about. My heart pounded as I approached the girl. "Thats Sarah.." I thought as I stared at her. Another girl was next to her, who had short brown hair. "And Coolcat.." I gasped slightly. A boy with a green shirt, and green lei stared at both of them. "If you don't bow down to 'King Bean' you might as well just leave!" The boy exclaimed, even more angrily than Sarah. A crowd grew around them, and with a deep breath, I stood and faced the boy. "We're Christians, and you will not treat my friends like that." I said loudly as I slightly glared at the boy. "Oh look whose speaking up now, the girl who doesn't know a thing about being a YouTuber." He shot back. I sighed, and spoke calmly. "I don't care if I don't know how to professionally be a YouTuber, but I know for certainty, that all I want to do with my channel, is to honor the Lord. And you, are not going to stop me, or my friends." I spoke boldly with pride. Coolcat looked at me and smiled. "Looks like old Gracie is coming back." Sarah commented under her breath with a smile, as she slightly nudged Coolcat. "Either way, 'King Bean' wants everyone to bow down. So your just going to have to leave." The boy said as he crossed his arms. "Fair enough, because we are not bowing down to anyone besides God." I said as I walked away, and headed towards the lake near the other side of the park. "If this is what a YouTubers fans are like, I'm not having any part in it." I spoke to myself as I continued heading towards the lake. With a sigh, I plopped down on the green grass, and stared at the lake. I turned my head towards the sky, and stared at the white puffy clouds. "I don't want any of this, Lord. Take it away from me.. Forgive me.." I prayed, still staring at the sky. Suddenly, a whisper came in my ear, though nobody was around. "Your loved Gracie. Surely this will be taken away. Your sins are forgiven." The voice said. A smile came across my face, and I looked down again, at the clear lake. "Your loved." I repeated to myself. "I don't need fame, I don't need any YouTubers as my friends. I need my true friends back." I thought to myself. "Gracie?" A voice asked from behind me. I turned around and smiled.
