Change in priorities

I haven’t been around much lately on the sims forums and things. I’ve kinda lost interest in the sims a while ago since I can’t seem to get the game to work properly on my new computer. So I’ve decided that I’m going to be taking a step back from all my stories for the time being. I may play occasionally, but not for very long. Just until my computer decides to kick me off.
With that being said, I’ve been very busy with school! I’ve turned in my graduation audit so that I can graduate! Time has flown by so fast, I don’t know what happened. Also I’ve turned in my application to student teach next fall. This is such a huge step. My life will be taking lots of major turns in the next couple years as I move from being a student trying to find a place in the world, to a teacher with a job and bills. Growing up is hard and sometimes it REALLY sucks. But I have one thing that is keeping me going right now.

That is my love for CRAFTS!! I did some homemade Christmas gifts last year that I just has so much fun making! I’ve already got some great ideas planned for this Christmas! Something special for my parents from my siblings and I, and also something from my whole family to my grandparents. It’s going to be great and Ill make sure to show pics!

This brings me to my next point, my blog is going to be moving away from sims and more towards crafts and DIY projects. Since that has now become my newest hobby that will be around a lot longer.


just a little update!

i haven’t posted in a while…my bad… so i thought i would just let you all know what’s going on with me right now!

I finally finished my 4th year of university! woot! still haven’t graduated though 😦 I’m taking a summer class though this summer which is really exciting! It’s not really a class so much as a two week camping adventure looking at rocks! but i’m still excited! i ❤ rocks! lolz

Also, i’m working on getting a job this summer. i put in an application at a dollar general in my area and the next day i had an interview! that’s never happened to me before! AND the manager pretty much hired me on the spot! it was great! now i just have to wait for the results of my background check before i am officially hired. So unless i go around murdering people in my sleep, i’m pretty sure i got this job!

Also, I finished with Iconic modeling…i ended up dropping out in the final 3 because i got really sick and could turn the assignment in on time. 😦 i really enjoyed that comp so i was SUPER sad when i had to drop. it was the furthest i’ve made in a comp that wasn’t run by Beech though, so that was cool! I want to thank Vidkid/ColorMePink for running such an awesome comp!

And finally, my stories. my pride and joy of my simming life! I’ve recently come to the decision that I really love both of my reality shows (SIMVIVOR and Exile Island) and don’t want either to end for good. BUT I can’t run both at the same time. So i’ve decided to run them every other. right now i’m in a season of SIMVIVOR so after that’s finished I’ll be starting another Exile island! I’m super excited!

My legacy is NOT dead. I’m just stuck. I can’t decide if i want to do one more chapter with Nick, or have and heir vote and just move on….I just don’t know. it’s been bugging me reallllly bad. I think im getting closer to a decision, but nothing is definite yet. :/

And finally, i have a new story in the works! I’m really excited for this. I plan to write the entire story out before i post anything. the updates will be based on when I take the photos. I have the plot all thought out in my head and I have the prologue and the first 3 chapters written. 🙂 It’s going to be a great story! I can feel it! a special few friends have gotten sneak previews and now i’m just waiting on if they like it to continue. i don’t want to write a story no one likes! hahaha!

Well, that’s all for now! hopefully I won’t let my blog go so long again without posting anything…im so negligent…lolz!

Woo! One Step Closer to Being a Teacher!

I don’t know if you guys know this, but I’m going to University to study to be a teacher. At my school, we are required to take a bunch of pre-teaching classes before we get to go into schools and actually start “learning” how to be a teacher. Well, It’s taken me four, FOUR, years to finish these classes. And this semester, i started my “real” teaching classes, you know, the ones where they teach us how to teach.

And a big part of these classes is something that my school calls a pre-internship. I’m not student teaching, but I got into high schools and middle schools and observe teachers in my subject area. We were supposed to get our pre-internship placements last week, and we finally got them today!! I’m sooo happy! I get to observe a 10th grade Earth Science class for the first time!! I can’t wait.

I’ve never had an Earth Science class in high school. I was going to take one, but then dropped it so that I could take an online music theory class because at the time, I was going to be a music teacher. Funny how that class that I dropped has now become the subject that I’m going to teach!!

My Newest Obsession :)

The Hunger Games  is a trilogy of books by Suzanne Collins. For those of you not in the know, it’s set in a post-apocalyptic future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl (ages 12-18) from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television. Katniss Everdeen (the main character) volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest Games. The story follows Katniss’ fight for survival in the Games.

The first book in the trilogy, aptly named The Hunger Games, was released in 2008 but hasn’t become popular until recently. With the Harry Potter franchise at an end and The Twilight Saga coming to a close this year, people have been searching for “the next big thing,” myself included.

Now, when my friend first brought me the books and told me to read them, I was a little apprehensive. It was so outside of the books that I normally read. But from the moment I started reading, I was hooked! It was sooo good! I then finished reading all 3 books in 4 days, keeping in mind that this was during my band camp where I was busy playing my instrument from 8am-10pm. I didn’t get lots of sleep that week…lolz!

Well, I’m in love! And this year (March 23rd) is when the first movie comes out! I’m super excited about it! I even got a Hunger Games calender for Christmas! I’ve been so obsessed with this that I even bought a magazine (and I don’t normally buy magazines) dedicated to the Hunger Games movie!

*sigh* I wish it came to theaters tomorrow…lolz

Oh yeah, I don’t even remember how I found this, but I found a person who is doing a Sims 2 version of the books. Check it out!
