10 Questions Tag

1. Can you still remember the first sim you made (can be sims 1,2,3 or 4)? 

I’m not positive, but most likely it was my best friend’s family in Sims 1.  Her mom caught a rug in front of the fireplace on fire and… there was nothing I could do.

2. Your fave sim interaction? 

Let’s go with ‘classic dance’ from Sims 2.

3. Do you have pets? 

Dos!

4. What is your favorite day of the week?

Sunday!
5. Soup or salad? Salad!
6. What makes you nervous? This is weird, like, I can get up in front of a large audience and just do my thing, but talking to one person when I’m not the person with authority really flips me out…
7. Have you ever entered a contest? Sort of? I submitted a sim to @simsimeree ’s ANTSM. I used to do talent shows when I was a smol one!
8. Have you ever been admitted to hospital? Yes! My friend accidentally whacked me in the face with a tennis racket! My nose wouldn’t quit bleeding and I had double black eyes. I also blacked out once for no good reason. Both outpatient deals.
9. What is your song of the week? Oh, this is hard. Agony from Into the Woods.
10.What is the worst gift you have ever given?😂 This is really mean. Faked Ancestry.com results followed by real ones.

I mean, we’ve seen all these superheroes blow stuff up in every which way from Sunday, so I don’t think anyone really cares about—well, maybe they do. But I think the really great thing about [Diana Prince] is that she leads with compassion, and love, and hopefulness, and these values that we always seem to be in dire need of.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any advice on how to write a grieving character? Thank you!!

Hi!

Grieving isn’t pretty. It isn’t always dramatic, either – while some people certainly do go home and throw their favorite vase against the wall, some people retreat into themselves and become emotionally unresponsive (that’s what I do). Violence or anger is more likely to occur if the death is sudden – so is retreating into an emotional shell, really, because it’s often a result of shock. But both can occur outside of a sudden death – cancer isn’t always sudden, but many people still become angry when their loved one is diagnosed with or dies because of it. Basically, if the death feels unfair in any way – if it’s sudden, or if it feels like it happened too early, such as in the case of cancer or of some sort of cardiac disaster (a heart attack, a stroke, etc) – it’s more likely to provoke anger or shock, depending on your character’s temperament and attachment to the dying/dead character.

That was just a general disclaimer. Now, onto the meat of grieving!

Firstly, grieving can begin before the person is technically dead – you don’t have to wait for the person to go flatline and physically stop breathing for your other characters to feel a sense of loss. If your character suffered a medical disaster or an accident that rendered them comatose, or if your character is obviously fighting a losing battle (again, terminal cancer comes to mind), your other characters could start grieving them even though they’re still breathing and their heart is still beating. However, the likelihood is that your characters won’t be able to really start working through the five stages of grief until your character actually does physically die, because rarely does death really hit home until it has occurred.

Speaking of the five stages of grief, those are important! They’re as follows:

  • Denial/Isolation: your characters can’t believe your dead character is really dead. This is a defense mechanism of sorts for your mind – a way to delay at least some of the pain, and give yourself time to process what’s happened (although that processing happens subconsciously, because on the surface you’re denying that anything’s happened at all). If the dead character fought a long battle with an illness before death, this stage may be expedited by the fact that your characters had time to process the character’s dying as it was happening. If the death was sudden in any way, this stage may be prolonged, because it will be harder to comprehend something that happened so quickly, and shock will be more likely to occur.
  • Anger: the pain your characters were masking in the denial stage starts to come to the surface, and as a response to the pain, your characters get angry (just as many other vulnerable emotions, such as fear, are expressed as anger – anger is a tough emotion, as opposed to fear and grief, so most people subconsciously opt for anger because it makes them feel less vulnerable). They may feel they’ve been robbed of your dead character’s companionship. Their anger may manifest itself in many different ways: isolation, irritability, or self-destructive behavior, to name a few. Their anger may also direct itself at various places: the medical professionals who failed to save your dead character’s life, God for taking your dead character, even the dead character him/herself, if they could in any way be responsible for their own death (if they were driving intoxicated, if they never ate healthily and suffered a heart attack, etc.).
  • Bargaining: before death, this stage may manifest itself as “please God, just let them live and I’ll tithe my ten percent and go to church every Sunday”, or “please, [Dying character’s name], just hold on and get better and we’ll [do that thing the dying character has always wanted to do]”. (Keep in mind that most people have an astounding impulse to be religious during a time of crisis, whether they’ve been religious in the past or not.) After death, this stage may manifest itself in the “could’ve-should’ve-would’ve” philosophy: “if only we’d taken them to the doctor sooner”, “I should’ve made him stay home”, “I knew there was something wrong with him!”, and so on. This stage is generally an attempt to regain control of the situation – your characters feel like they’re taking some kind of action by offering a proposition, or by placing blame.
  • Depression: there are two types of depression associated with grief. In the first (which is almost more similar to anxiety) your characters worry more about others: what if I haven’t been there for people when they needed me, how are we going to pay for the funeral/burial services, and so on. Basically it deals more with the practical aspects of the character’s death. The second type is more introspective – your characters may retreat into themselves and analyze old memories of your dead character, and their feelings on everything that’s happened. This type is private, and your characters probably won’t share much about their thoughts if they experience it.
  • Acceptance: this stage is marked by withdrawal and calm – it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish from depression. It’s not a stage of joyous frolicking and exclaiming, “It’s okay! I understand everything about [Dead Character’s] death!”. Your characters may still not understand the purpose of your dead character’s death, but understanding and acceptance are not synonyms, nor are they mutually inclusive. The important thing about this stage is that your characters can make peace with the death, and can move on.

Keep in mind that while I’ve listed these stages in what is regarded as their general order, every person (and character) grieves differently – they may experience these emotions in a different order than that above. They may also go through one or several of the stages more than once, or cycle through the first four of them multiple times before reaching the fifth. Some characters may not even reach the fifth at all – depending on the circumstances of the death and the character’s attachment to your dead character, they may never fully accept your dead character’s death. The stages above are just a general framework for grieving.

Also, keep in mind that if your character’s death was tied in any way to traumatic incidents for your other characters, it may complicate the grieving process for those other characters, because the character’s death will be tied to other painful or triggering memories.

I hope this helps! If you need anything else, please feel free to ask. - @authors-haven

Stuff to do on a sunday

…or weekend for that matter. 

I thought I’d compile a little list of things that I aim to do on the weekends in order to not fall too deeply into the pit of lazyness and slackdom. Feel free to add your own advice and sunday/weekend rituals. {see other advice posts}. 

Let’s get into it:


Tidy your space. Resetting your room or apartment will make a big difference in your stress levels. Having clutter laying around here and there will ultimately reflect on your mental state, so take a few minutes (it can most likely be done in 20 minutes) and take charge.

Vacuum or mop the floors. Now that the place is tidied up, take 5 more minutes to finish off and tackle dust and crumbles on the floor. 

Change your bed sheets. A freshly mase bed smells and feels nice and it might even improve the quality of your sleep.

Open your windows. Let some fresh air fill your room.

Do your laundry. Mondays can be tough, so make sure you have your favorite outfit ready to wear.

Clean the dishes. Again, saving monday morning.


Exercise. Mens sana in corpore sano. Moving your body is vital to your overall well-being, so find an activity that you enjoy.

Be social. You might want to invite a friend and exercise together, go for a long walk or have a sit in with tea and cake.

Pamper yourself. Take a bath, shave, if you want, apply a face mask, use lotion, clip and file your nails, apply polish if that’s your thing. Use peeling on your skin, and conditioner for your hair.



Bake. If you find this relaxing, try a new recipe. Not only will baking make your place smell amazing, you can also spread some cookie-love. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like receiving baked goods unexpectedly.

Listen to music. Put on the new record that you didn’t find time for to listen in the week or blast your favorite classic album.

Create. Paint, draw, grab your camera or guitar, make a vlog, write a poem, blog. Whatever you prefer.

Read a book. Have you already re-read the Harry Potter books this year? You probably should.

Go outside. Walk around, explore your neighborhood. Find a cute café, watch people walk by and sip on some tea or coffee. Go to a museum or gallery and learn something new.


Tackle unfinished task. Sit down with your planner and look for unchecked tasks in your weekly overview. Do them if absolutely necessary. However, super important tasks are probably crossed of already anyway.

Plan the upcoming week. Make a list of tasks that need to get done in the upcoming week. Try to prioritize. If you’re bullet journaling, this can be a wonderful creative outlet to decorate a few pages.

Prep food for the next day(s). Take responsibility for your nutrition and try not to depend or rely on the food that’s provided by your school, university or work place. Many meals can be cooked in bulk, stored and you’re good to go for many days, with only having to cook once. This ultimately saves time and money.


That’s about it. I hope you might have found one or another useful tip. However, there’s one last thing to do on sundays:


B e   l a z y .   It’s the weekend after all, so feel free to just not do anything at all. Try and push aside some responsibilities, stop worrying about tasks that lay in the future. Sleep in, have breakfast in bed, binge-watch your favorite show on netflix or curl up with a good book. Just chill the heck out.

Dishonest hypocritical pastor loses it all.

I use to be very religious. At the end of that period in my life, I became involved with a new church that was pastored by a charismatic young pastor who seemingly had everything going for him. But the fucker was greedy. Too greedy. As the saying goes: โ€œpigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered.โ€ Pastor Hog got slaughtered.

My wife and I were looking for a church. An old friend invited us to a new church that was energetic and full of friends. We started attending regularly and eventually became involved with the leadership of the church.

After a while, I started to become uneasy around the pastor. The way he communicated with people just rubbed me the wrong way. I slowly realized that he was a manipulator and compulsive liar. Quick with an overzealous compliment but slow to explain himself when issues arose.

Okay, I heard about all this negativity towards the female writers of RaM and I am PISSED!!! Like, I can understand if you don’t like the episode that’s totally fine but to down right say that it’s the FEMALES fault for the show going down hill then that’s just fucked up.

The episodes I’ve seen from them, and their writing team (There is a whole TEAM btw) was freakin AMAZING!! Like every episode from this season so far is so MEANINGFUL! GENIUS! And just out right beautiful writing.

The second episode showed Morty and Summer dealing with the divorce. It felt so REAL!! I felt their pain…And it was so sad. It made me care about them so much. The fear that your family is falling apart and you can’t mentally take it.

And the THIRD EPISODE!!! They went to family therapy!!! Sure it was cause of their principle, but to think that they ACTUALLY went and therapist was so professional in my opinion! I love how the writing just shows you that therapy (depending on the person) can be a good and bad thing. You can think therapy is just not for you just like Rick and Beth. You can think like Morty and say that you like the therapist and would like to go back like Summer.

I love it and I can’t WAIT for episode 4 this Sunday. Dan said that Rick was gonna be especially drunk in that episode so…AH!

Anyways, I hope the writers know that they’re doing a great job. Negativity can go fuck itself with a battery laser - A - )9

Steve: Why in the world would Tony tell Natasha that he sometimes has gay dreams about me?
Bucky: Whoa. Slow your roll. You? He’s clearly talking about me.
Steve: Dude, it’s me. I’m his favourite super-soldier.
Bucky: Okay, one: that has never been proven. Two: If anyone were to have gay dreams about one of us, it would be me. I mean, look at me. Now look at you.
Steve: Here’s the thing, Buck. I’m snuggly. You’re not. Who wouldn’t want to snuggle up next to this business on a Sunday morning? Wrapped in a comforter, and it’s raining outside, And there’s muffins warming in the oven. I’m cuddly, bitch. Deal with it.
Bucky: I work out every day. If there is one thing we know about Tony, it’s that he likes a nice body. This body would rock his world.
Steve: Tony and I have a history. I know what he likes. There are things I could do to him that would blow his mind - - Why do we keep trying to have sex with Tony?
Bucky: I don’t know. It’s weird.
