So I recently got back into acnh..... and still waiting to get a computer so that I can paste the UTAU UI on it lmao. I have a desk and a chair but no PC :,(

I originally came back because of the swimming update (and because the mermaid diys are sosossooo cute) but ended up getting sucked into everything else. I've decided to take things a little bit slower than I did before I quit where I was super set on getting mats/doing nook miles dailies every.single.day. It was just very repetitive and boring for me and I think I ruined it for myself lol. Anyways so then I finally come back to my island to see that none of my villagers left!! And that my hair was a wreck :)

My island is still very much a sh^t hole of weeds and mislapced houses but yknow what? I don't even care in the least because I've decided to completely neglect my island appearance to focus on my interior deco and life IS GOOD :cyberdiva_ani_lili: I finished my tiny bedroom.
I'm thinking of expanding for another room again because I want to try making a bathroom. Plus um... I'm not willing to part with any of the 150+ fashion pieces I've got stored. Nope. I cannot.

Wow, that room is really cute! Thankfully, when you expand your house, your storage expands, too.
I gave up on taking the Nook Miles thing so seriously, too. It takes long enough just hitting rocks/burrying 10k in a glowing hole/checking shops that doing all that extra stuff was really a chore.
The mermaid stuff is really cute. But so far, we haven't gotten any pearls. I wonder if you have to get the recipes first, then he starts giving you pearls?

Unrelated, but we tried the amiibo card thing to get rid of putrid Joey, but it was a lot of work! It's like this:
Day 1: Scan amiibo to invite villager. They immediately show up at the campsite as soon as you exit the building. Have to craft something for them (if you don't have the recipe for what they want, they give it to you, which is cool cause getting recipes is hard).
Day 2: Invite the same villager again/craft for them again.
Day 3: Invite the same villager again/craft for them AGAIN. They are okay with staying at your town now. Have to pick one villager to boot. The camper villager goes over to talk to the villager you picked to leave, but they happened to already be packing their bags, so new villager moving in and lame villager finally leaving works out great.
Day 4: Because the villager that moved out was so putrid, Nook had to literally demolish their house and start construction on a brand new house for the new villager. (So it's just a plot of land blocked off.)
Day 5: New villager is in the new house with cardboard boxes.
Day 6: The villager finally stinking moved in and it only took a week. orz

I've been wondering the same thing? For the past week that I've been back into acnh, I've made sure to spend at least 20+ minutes every day and so far I've only gotten a whopping 1 pearl :,)) while I already have 5 mermaid diys...? I tried looking online about pearls and it seems like they're just really rare. Which I mean wth, 90% of their diys take pearls. Nintendo really wants us to dedicate our life to this event (not surprised).

Yikes @Krin , I really don't feel like swimming around for 20+ minutes a day... orz I usually just do it til my inventory is full, then give up.
My sister has gotten the otter 3 times so far and I haven't gotten him at all. I don't know if the otter only comes to one person for the first catch of the day or if you both can get him (we had problems where there would only be one DIY recipe on the beach despite there being 2 of us, but I think the latest update fixed that, it was painful).
Some people seem to have had problems finding Pascal even though they caught a lot, it was apparently because their inventory was full without noticing or they had to go in a house/out of it to reset him.

I was suspicious it might be like how rare it is to get gold. The ACNH guidebook says you have a...
50% chance of getting stone on your island, 8% on mystery island
34% chance of getting iron nuggets on your island, 50% on mystery island
15% chance of getting clay on your island, 41% on mystery island
1% chance of getting gold on either island (I've had better luck getting gold out of balloons, 3/4 of my gold for this entire game playing since launch has been from balloons. Dumb.)

I on the other hand I have over 20 pearls and 3 diy XD Pascal doesn't believe in giving me diy :(
What is this wizardry? How are you doing that?
