my sims live better than i do

Looking forward to the weekend of the 1st so much! One of my best friends in the entire world @this-nerdy-sim is coming to live with me which is sooper exciting! 

Even more exciting is the fact that my son will be here as well! (only 19 days which i’m pissed about because my ex husband is an idiot who failed to make plans to save the money to get him here and we had to resort to waiting on his mom doing it instead but its better than nothing.) 

He’ll get to celebrate his birthday with me! YAY! I miss my little goober.

Another year lived! Another year ALIVE. These days I don’t think so much about aging; I think about surviving. It’s been quite a year for me (and maybe eventually I’ll go into detail, because I do think there’s value in sharing), but I’m in a much, much better place than I was on this exact day last year. Here’s to another year of moving forward. To living, to being alive. :)

Been in Seattle with my girl for the past several days. The rain has been annoying as hell, but we’re still living, haha. Yesterday, instead of sitting around (like what we’ve been doing since we’ve got here), we decided to get up and go to this diner I found. The food was aight, but not as mediocre as the food we had back in Cali, lmaooo.

“Also, how’s everybody? How do you like your new apartment?”

“It’s honestly just great. I thought living with Scottie will be worse, but he’s actually a better flatmate than Elune. Speaking of Elune, she’s out for the night, same with Scottie. I was just waiting for Padma to come and it’s actually a good occasion for her to meet Maeve, she’s gonna love her.”

“Of course she will, my daughters are the cutest ever, how could you not love them? Alright sweetie, I need to go, I don’t know when I’ll be back, so don’t wait for me, okay?”

“Sure mom.”

Dragus:  “The point is, you have to take that chance.  I didn’t raise you to be a coward.”

Dani:  “I’m not.”

Dragus:  “Then promise me that when you find the right one that you will make a choice based off your experiences and feelings and not off mine and your mother’s.”

Dani:  “I don’t want to get hurt like you were.”

Dragus:  “Just trust your instincts, they’ll never steer you wrong.  I should have never left your mother.  When I found out I was pregnant, I should have gone back and fought for her.”

Dragus pauses for a moment before continuing……

Dragus:  “I let my anger and hurt control me.  I didn’t listen to my instincts that were telling me that your mother would never do such a thing intentionally.   We all suffered because of it.  Daniella, I want better for you than what I’ve gone through.  So; please baby girl, promise me that you will always control your own destiny and not let what has happened to others dictate how you should live your life.”

Dani:  “I promise I’ll try, daddy.”

Soooo, I want to make a game...

I found this program called TyranoBuilder on Steam, and it honestly seems too good to be true, but I’m so hype. It’s a game making program that allows you to mkae text based, visual novel games, and all you have to do is plug in the assets and texts. The only problem is the assets. I can’t afford to pay an artist and I refuse to disrespect them by asking to do it for free, so I need to do it myself, but my art is…. not quality. So, I’d like some feedback on Visual Novel Game ideas. I can draw inanimate objects much better than creatures and people, and I’m willing to pay for stock images as well. So send me some suggestions, what would you be willing to try (for free probably)? A stock photo dating simulator, of real stock photo people living in a stock photo reality? A dating sim for Starbucks drinks/fast food items? Is there an obscure celebrity you’d like to chase, like the Adam Sandler Dating Sim?

I’m also open to just doing a choose your own adventure, but again, I need assets, and a theme. Looking to add it to my resume and feel like I actually accomplished something.

We walk into her house and I was completely amazed by how nice and cozy it looked. Better than the junk yard.

This is a Women’s Shelter. You know what that is, right?”

I’ve heard of women shelters in books, it’s like a place where women can go and live if they don’t feel safe in their current living situation. Something of that sorts. I nod my head to let her know that I’m familiar with what it is. I wonder what she’s doing here then.

“You don’t talk much, do you? You’re probably super tired. Look, go ahead and nap on that couch while I go shower and I’ll tell the supervisor to come and talk to you! Maybe you could stay here a while. No, I’m just assuming things. I’m sure you were just out for a walk? You probably have it better than all of us here.”

I nervously scratched my back and thought about what she was saying. I definitely don’t have it better than them. If anything I should have been living here 3 years ago. “Uh… No, Lindsey. A lot has happened since I last saw you. I think I’ll be staying here for a while. If that’s fine with the supervisor.”

You talk! Great! Will Tony be cool with you staying here? You’re still living together, right? Oh no, did he kick you out?”

“..No, Lindsey. We broke up 3 years ago.”

She then gave me a pity hug and went on to go take her shower. I laid down on the couch and slowly fell asleep.

Hiya guys! :)

The grocery shop is ready to serve the customers.
I left the roof alone, cause it wasn’t good either way. :D Somebody will build this shop better than me anyway. :D I tried my best, and that’s all that matters.
Kinda like how it turned out.
I didn’t do anything about the fact that there are two more floors :D who cares anyway? :) I will pretend that there is living somebody. I could’ve made a staircase, but naah! :D
If I change my mind, i will find a way to put  stairs somewhere, but until then I don’t mind, that this shop is only on one floor. :D

Lillian: Why? Why are you doing this to me, Freya?

Freya: I’m not doing anything to you. But do you really want to live on a marriage where I’m always going to doubt you forever? That’s what’s gonna happen. You have no proof in your favor and I have a few against what you’re saying… I’d always have that on the back of my mind. Always.

Lillian: Anything’s better than losing you forever.

Freya: I can’t do this. Please don’t make things harder than they already are.

Lillian: Please, Freya…

Better late than never, right? 

Well, I was tagged by @izziessims to do the favourite place tag so this is my favourite place in the Sims 4. It’s my fave mainly because that’s the sort of place I want to live in in real life and it looks really magical at night when the fireflies come out and the tram turns on it headlights (and that bridge ofc!)

In fact this whole neighbourhood is just so pretty that there’s a part 2 to this post coming up because I took wayyyy too many pictures! 

If anyone else wants to have a go here’s what you need to do;

When someone tags you, take a picture of your favorite place in any sims world (1, 2, 3, 4) and then tell something about it :)

Jim: Oh dear. I hate seeing you so upset. Here. I made you a double.

Anita: Thank you. You’re so sweet and kind to me, Jim.

Jim: I only want you to be happy. And whatever happened today with Joël has obviously made you very unhappy. Do you want to talk about it?

Anita: Oh, God. First it was the shock of seeing all Jared’s lovely hair cut off. And the way Joël spoke to me when I rang him-

Jim: Silly girl. Why did you ring him? You should know better than that.

Anita: I know, I know. It was so stupid. But you know what a hothead I am. Sometimes I just can’t help myself. And now Jared’s saying he wants to go and live with him on his filthy boat-

Jim: Maybe it’s time we reviewed the current arrangements. What do you think? You can’t go on like this. You’ll give yourself an ulcer, my poor darling.

To be honest, I’m not too exited to meet all of these people. We are told ever since children, humans are destructive and vicious. Having one as my best friend and a brother has changed my views on that. Not everyone in Valendrian agrees. 

It took them a while to get used to Doran. Still, I don’t know anyone so against humans as Velatriel. She’s the daughter of the leader of the Yundraer clan in the north. Her father is good friends with mine, they always make an appearance on special occasions. I know her better than anyone and I can see she’s coming around about Doran, but she would never admit to it. North and their pride. But I can’t really  blame her for it, can I?

She’s joining the inquisition with me and my brothers. Our parents are strongly against it. But this is what we’ve been trained for our whole lives. My duty is to protect our people, and I dont see me doing it behind these palace walls.
