I really struggled getting through work on Friday because I couldn’t help but watch the updates on what was going on around my city, after the mass shooting the night before. I cried about twelve times and basically felt stressed and sad and ready to check out for a while.
Sometimes you just need to hide from the world for a weekend so I spent much the past two days hiding in The Sims 4. It had been months since I’d played at all, and it was a really nice way to escape and reset a bit. Plus, I played at a desk that’s directly next to my husband’s desk, so we got lots of easy, hangout time. (And watching over his shoulder made me want to get back into my Fallout 4 game again.)
I restarted my Sims world and didn’t want to spend forever making people (because let’s be honest, I was going to spend forever on the houses), so I grabbed some people made by other players and ended up with these great Pretty Little Liars characters:
I mean, LOOK AT THEM. They look even more accurate in the game when they’re moving around and their personalities fit the characters perfectly. So weird/fun/nerdy!
Once I played them for a while, I was hooked on finding characters I’d “know” to add to my town, and ended up with these women too. Can you guess who they are?
It’s Taylor Swift, Anne Hathaway, Beyoncé, and Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
And she’s not in my game (yet?) but look!
Angelina Jolie! I feel like I don’t even have to put the name here because there’s no way you didn’t recognize her.
So, that was my weekend. I’m feeling much better and ready to tackle tomorrow.
(Also, I swear there are dudes in my Sims town, but I’ll be honest and say not that many. I did add a Cumberbatch Sherlock though!)
