The Sims4

I’m not sure how many of you have been following me for and how far back you’ve read some of my posts but I am a bit of “Gamer” and by that I mean I am very basic. I like games where I can relax and just chill, I’m not really into big shoot ups and a lot of the more intense games I’ll play by myself just because I am so “noobish-like” and I just want to play, ya know? The most intense games I’ve played recently are Witcher and LoL (League of Legends) but even with LoL I only really play against the Bots and my partner,lol.

Any-ways one game that I am obsessed with, in fact, it’s the only game that I can play that I lose all time with is “The Sims”. The Sims is a “life simulation” game and I am currently playing The Sims 4 and I’ve actually been a little disappointed in though because they still wont release a “Sims Pets”. Come on Sims Pets!

Anyhow, I found this funny article on a site called “Buzzfeed” and if you also enjoy playing The Sims I am sure that you will find this extremely relate-able! Number 23 …. SO much want!

Share Your World…Week 27

Share Your World – 2015 Week #27

Can you believe that we are up to Week 27! Less than half a year to go until Christmas already!

Share Your World

What is your favorite month of the year?

I have two! (hope that’s allowed!) I love April for two reasons, the main one is that it’s my Birthday month (yay) and the second is that it’s Easter, roughly, and we get so many public holidays during the month. My second favourite month is December, I am such a Christmas person, I love it! I love the magic it can bring and how it just brings my entire family together. It’s the only time of year that we are all together, everyone comes from interstate. Also though December is the month where the year ends and you can start all refreshed and renewed.

Do you drink coffee at all?

I am definitely a coffee drinker, I probably have three cups a days. Sometimes I’ll change it up and have a cup of tea in there somewhere and I can’t drink coffee when I’m sick. I still will drink water and I will have days where I just want to drink water because I feel dehydrated.

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?

Call centre work, oh I hated it! Great money but the work is horrible. People are just so much more aggressive over the phone for some unknown reason. It’s also a huge regret of mine because I wanted to money to go travelling, but it seems to be a lot harder to get a job when you’ve been go travelling a lot =/

List:  If you play video/computer games list 5 games you like? 

I love to play video games, some of them are like therapy for me.

  1. The Sims (probably my favourite game!)
  2. Age of Empires
  3. Rollercoaster Tycoon
  4. Fable II & III (xBox games)
  5. Settlers….That’s mainly because that’s the one my partner and I play,lol.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Happy Birthday Your Majesty!

Down Under today we are celebrating the Queens birthday (I don’t actually know what the Queen of England’s birthday) … The best part of it though? We get a public holiday here. Celebration! Well to celebrate I am sleeping in and playing video game all day! What do you like to do on public holidays?!

Games of Thrones

*If you have not seen the Games of Throne episode “Unbowed, Unbent and Unbroken…Spoiler alerts…Also possibly over 18+ content*

So last week (I’ve only just gotten around to watching it) I watched the last episode “Unbowed,Unbent and Unbroken” and this episode has been creating a LOT of controversy, as Games of the Thrones always seems too (yes I’m aware I wrote that title wrong =P).

I noticed with myself though I spent half of it fast forwarding through a lot of the episode.  One of the good things about this episode though was that it did not just focus on just one character and did not focus on one story/plot line. This meant that the stories were pushed along and few needed to be because we had had nothing happen for a while with certain characters and it felt like “Oh, there you are”.

The problem that I am starting to have though with this series is that it’s feeling a little repetitive and yet people continue to be shocked and outrage. The particular scene at the the end was not even in the book. The writers of the show seem to think that there is only one way a woman could ever been given “strength” and that is through having really terrible happen to her and it’s starting to bore me. I was also bored though because I can’t believe that no one didn’t see what Ramsay did, coming? That’s just my opinion on the matter though. I think it was just lazy writing really.

The Small Council – “Discuss Unbowed, Unbent and Unbroken”

“I read comic books”…Why women hate “nerds”

“I read comic books”

As a general rule now I skim by a lot of the articles and twitter feeds that are on Facebook these days, because people are just dumb…and they get so comfortable and feel so righteous about everything, it is like people genuinely believe “Well that’s my opinion, so I’m right” and if anyone dares disagree or makes a good point, they should just “shut their traps”. No one wants to discuss things any-more, everyone just wants to be ‘right’.

That quote is what started my rant today. I was looking through some of the posts on Facebook about families who cosplay together and this made me smile, until I got to a picture of a mother and her two daughters dressed pretty much like Michelle Pfieffer “Catwoman”. One guy decided to write that he thought it was wrong to dress the little girls like “tramps”. A whole bunch of women (which lets be honest, is rare) started to defend the mother and her choice and saw nothing wrong with the outfits. I wasn’t going to say anything  until I saw this guy write about how these ladies should “shut their traps” and how he “read comics” so we couldn’t argue with him?

This guy is the exact example of why I, and a lot of my female friends, will NOT date nerds and geeks! As a general rule they are the worst, every nerd and geek that I have dated has treated me horribly. A great example of this is when I got out of an abusive relationships within a particularly nerdy group where I got bullied and hit by my ex-partners room-mate. As sometimes happens I had a one night stand with a guy (after we broke up)…Fast forward a week later I wake up to be publicly humiliated on Facebook by a group of guys “slut-shaming” me because how dare I have a one night stand and not date their “good guy” friend instead. God knows I want to get back into a group who think publicly humiliating a girl over something that isn’t any of their business and thinks that this is a really good idea to get their own way.

Funnily enough I don’t have anything to do with those guys any-more. Yet they still insist that they are a bunch of “good guys”. GOOD GUYS do NOT publicly humiliate people over things that are NONE of their business. A good guy would have gone and asked me why I had the one night, since I had never one before and it was completely out of character for me. I’ve seen a bunch of them who are over 30 humiliate a bunch of teenagers on Facebook because the teenagers didn’t agree with them.

Now I know that not all “nerds and geeks” are like this, but it seems to me the one that’s are completely into whatever their genre is in the gaming world, they seem to be the worse. If they have other interests or other friendship groups outside of the gaming world, they seem to be a lot better. A great example of this is the guy who all the other guys wanted me to date, by humiliating me. The actual guy started a hairdressing course and is friends with really lovely girls, he has since apologised and we are great friends. However, the guys who actually humiliated me are all still doing the same things and still acting and reacting in the same way. Literally nothing has changed.

Sims 4 Update!

One of my most popular Blogs has apparently been the Blog about my Sims 4, which is quiet entertaining to me. I love playing it and my characters has been “developing”. So I thought that I give little random updates about the characters I’m playing all the time.

These two characters are Arwen Oakenshield and Aragorn Bloom and they are both now teenagers, dating, in a relationships and have recently swapped promise rings. It is SO cute! I am loving playing this game, I am probably going to buy some kind of extension game. I’m to busy though at the moment to really consider that…Watch this space for more though!…

 

Sims Update!

After a few hours of playing “The Sims 4” (which I am secretly addicted to…Okay, it’s no secret that I’m addicted to it)…but after hours of playing I realised two characters who just seemed fated to be together in whatever “world” they are in. I am even considering making my first “Sims” video, I’ve never made one before so we’ll see how it goes.

I would like to introduce Arwen Oakenshield and Aragorn Bloom…Do you recognise those names?
