It's Been a While...

It has been quite some time hasn't it, so long in fact that I almost forgot what my password was.
But nevertheless I am here to say "Hi".

I've been getting all nostalgic and wondering how everyone is.
Most of you I see are about as active as I am. Not that I blame you, I totally understand. Its sad but such is the nature of life, why should it be any different on the web right?

So an update about me for anyone who actually wants to know (I'm guessing for anyone reading this your probably here by mistake, emergency exits are towards the front and rear of the blog)

Well I've been good. I've been writing a lot, not blog writing clealry, but writing fiction. So thats been a lot of fun and continues to be. I am still trying to figure my life out, and its dawning in me that perhaps no one ever does figure their life out, but I'll leave that one for the philosophers. I've not touched a sims game in the longest time. Life is just so busy, but its a good busy. 

You'll be pleased to know I've behaved as a good little boy in the interim, I've managed to avoid breaking any laws or finding myself on the bad end of a harmful or addictive substance. 
(Stay in school kids) 

Being a new year I've set myself some goals, to get up earlier and to go to bed earlier 
(ha its currently 4 minutes past midnight).
Other goals include finding a new job, I've had a good run at my current job but time for soemthing new I think. 

As for my long term future?
Well I'm not much one for a career, I was in school, you know how it is plans for uni, dreams of the middle class suburban life. Well I've changed since then. First I want to get my book written (not necessarily published, just written, sorta like a bucket list thing). Second I want to travel, I have been overseas in the past but I want to do some proper travelling, by that I mean I want to move offshore, try my luck in different parts of the world, see what sticks. 

I guess I'm a bit of an oddball, don't get me wrong I'm not a slacker, I'm a firm believer in hard work and determination. I'm just testing the water for a life of less structure. Free spirit and all that. Who knows I am a teenager, it may, like all this, pass eventually.

As for my future with the Sims?
Well The Sims 3 has well and truly become a part of my past, and I don't see it in my future. The Sims 4, maybe. 

The one thing in my immediate future is a pillow and a night of rest. And perhaps some french radio, I find it helps me sleep and I pretend it somehow makes me more cultured. 

Goodnight all.
 (Assuming someone actually reads this and that its actually night when you do)

Simmers In Defence of CAST


Create-A-STyle: As shown in the trailer above CAST offers a diverse level of customisation. 
In EA's apparent haste and supposed 'desire' to make a "basic game that is perfect and "stable" the developers of Sims4 have elected at this point not to include CAST.
I urge all simmers who want this powerful tool available in the next incarnation of Sims speak up on the forums. 
I don't want to sound sensationalist, I do this with a touch of humour.
I just feel that CAST is a tool we need to see in TheSims4

I even made a signature!

By the way I got 150,000 hits.
It was a little over 50,000 hits ago that I took off.
I will be returning with The Sims 4. But not quite yet, I am on the new sims 4 forum and will be active again on this blog in the months after Sims 4 is released.

The Sims 4 Fake Cover

I enjoyed making these back in the day and I couldn't help but make one when I heard about the Sims 4.
So here is my fake cover for the Sims 4, ik ik, Its more of a final fantasy cover, haha. We probably wont see the real cover/case for quite some time (prove me wrong EA).

I know I'm supposed to be disappeared, which I am. But I will confess If there is a chance of me returning it will be with the Sims 4 sometime next year. 

(Funny since I said Id stop posting, I have probably posted more since then than I had posted in the months leading up to my departure Feel free to criticize me.)

Christopher Robin Depression

This is by no means a return, but you see I am just a little sad.
I suddenly remembered the story of Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh. 

Christopher grew older and he ended up leaving the hundred acre woods. This I remember.

It made me sad. I looked up quotes from Winnie The Pooh.

"Promise me you'll never forget me because if I thought you would I'd never leave."

"I used to believe in forever, but "forever" is too good to be true."

"If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you."

"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together. There is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you."

"If there ever comes a day when we can't be together keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever."

It is so sad. I am completely serious, this is a terrible frame of mind to be in, all brought on by my childhood memories of a children's story. Its all just very sad.
