I've had it for 3-4 years now, my first game for it was Rayman 3D(Rayman 2 on the 3DS) because I had gotten into Rayman at last & started talking about the series to my dad.(I haven't gotten past the level were you free this fairy that people pair Rayman with because I can't seem to get the last cage because of how impossible it is to get in that area of the level for some reason) I've been using the 3DS for a long time & funny enough it's red like my first DS(which was bulky), I no longer have it but still have the one I got after it which is just a slimmer version that is light pastel pink.
Uh sorry got distracted, so a couple times I've mistakenly dropped my 3DS. They weren't that bad the first time even if it chipped the pain & scratched it up near the SD card area though at some point I dropped it again & the bit that has the light that blinks if a friend is on or if you got something from spot/street pass or if the batter is REALLY low fickers. It wasn't that bad but the spot below it would go up & I'd have to push it down when closing the top screen. Tried to use the kind of glue used for sewing, some kind of gem work & for fixing cellphones but it eventually cam off again. I still have the bit on a shelf for if I ever managed to find a place to fix it but otherwise it wasn't a problem. But today -well yesterday since it happened at near/around 11 something pm- I mistakenly dropped it again after trying to be so careful because I don't want to break this thing. This time the area that got broken last time fell off & my 3DS broke in two, some how I was lucky enough that it still worked because the to screen still had wires connected to it.
Sadly I have to stick the piece that fell off in place in order to make the top screen keep standing or it falls down. Also unlucky for me the spot that broke some how made my internet on 3DS stop working. This is especially bad as I have a few trades in Pokemon to do eventually & a friend was going to visit me in Animal Crossing since she was having break this week.
I was given the chance to get a new 3DS around Christmas last year but I didn't because at some point I saw someone posted a video or whatever about transferring their data from their 3DS to their new one & the data being erased some how. Now the person could have mistakenly erased their data after the transfer or something or I was thinking about something else & got mixed up but it made me worried the same would happen to me if I got a new one & transferred the data. There's probably a tutorial on how to do it safely or I might have misunderstood things like I mentioned but for so long this has made me scared of getting a new system.
I now have to face the fact that I need to get a new system or face never being able to use certain features on my 3DS again along with a broken top screen. I likely won't be able to get a new one until Christmas or unless I actually work more on commissions(which I'm slow at). I also have to remake my PayPal account after telling them to close it after they fucked it up when they stopped doing student accounts. I'll try to open it up again later though & get paypal commissions set up eventually.
Also on a completely different note here is an update on my friend's friend that needs help.(It's a link to his journal)
Help Weebie3!Nobody now has a gofundme to get her funded to help her move. PLEASE! Go help her if you can!
Update: So my stepmom got me a 2DS, it's cheaper & from what little I've messed with it so far it's probably for the better as it's less likely to break or something. I'm kind of surprised I got a new system so quickly, I'm going to make sure to be careful with this system.
