The poll was not close in the slightest with 55% for the winning choice and 27% for the next choice. It was clear the public had an opinion and if I’m being honest I kinda wanted this choice 😉
My next update might be in a couple if weeks but for now I’m focusing on catching up on some stories.
I just wanted to say thank you to each and every one of you for understanding and continuing to support this blog even though it’s slow going. I have hit a bump in the road but not a dead end and I’m slowly making my way back ❤
I know it has been a long time since I have posted an update but life happens…
In my last update I was suffering from terrible migraines and it turns out I am pregnant!!!
But it hasn’t been an easy pregnancy with all day sickness, migraines and just generally feeling like shit. With my first it was pretty awesome in comparison, no migraines, no sickness and loads of energy! So it was probably karma hitting back at me 😀
Besides all of that at the anatomy scan a tumour was picked up on her lung, we now know it is not growing and not serious but it will need to be removed about 6 months after she is born. On top of all of that I am a stay at home mum to a rambunctious toddler and a full time uni student so Sims has been the last thing on my mind but I do want to get back into it.
I love playing, writing and reading all of your amazing stories too!
I can’t run a schedule but I can put up a chapter at least once every few weeks or so and if not then I have some outtakes and bloopers to keep the momentum up.
I will also slowly be binge reading all of the blogs I follow, I can’t wait to catch up 🙂
In the meantime please some photos of general life in the groups tiny apartment. BTW this place is the worst for photos and there is always something breaking.
I actually don’t actually like the city apartments at all, they can never sleep, stuff breaks all the time and the landlord guy or whatever can rarely fix it and when he does it just breaks again. Their electricity goes out due to the power thing always breaking and there are BUGS!!! EEEEEK!!! How do you like San Myshuno?
Once again I’ve missed a post but I have had the worst migraine lasting a couple of weeks and still going. It’s fine now but tomorrow maybe a different story. I have been llimiting my screen time so I haven’t played, written much or done any reading.
To make up for it I do have a double post!
I feel like this triangle has been dragging on long enough so we reach the climax and secrets are revealed in 1.9 – Secrets.
Again the poll is still open but I’m closing tonight so if you haven’t voted yet or want to vote to change Yasmin’s fate do so before tonight.
1.10 – Brand New Day is just a refreshing look at life for Yasmin without the boy drama and a new work opportunity arises.
We’re working on getting the secrets out and Yasmin gets to see her baby!
Don’t forget to vote on the poll if you haven’t already or revote if you like. I have hidden the results so it will be a surprise what choice wins.
I’ll be spending the weekend working on the next chapter and catching up on some more reading.
I don’t have a schedule but I’m thinking on Wednesday and Friday so I might post Wednesday but that being said I don’t always have chapters planned so far in advance like I do at the moment so maybe just Fridays…. I don’t know lol.
I was so excited about this chapter I couldn’t wait to write it. All day I have been reading and editing and I’m still unsure but if I waited to be 100% sure then I’d never post anything. It is a long chapter but I felt like I needed to put it all in one chapter and not split it up.
This chapter had to be rewritten as I mentioned that Yasmin’s mother had died so it took me off guard. I plan an outline for chapters and write them after I get the screenshots but I hadn’t planned on Gila, who was going to play a major role in Yasmin’s life, passing away.
So it’s been a few weeks and I have been busy writing and playing this legacy and reading some great stories so I haven’t worked on the site pages as much as I’d like to have.
When I stopped blogging a couple of years ago I also stopped reading blogs and playing Sims altogether. The Sims 4 just came out and while I was first to preorder and play a demo at a games expo I was devastatingly disappointed when the game was released. No toddlers. No pools. No thank you. My computer crashed shortly after and Sims 3 was wiped and the thought of reinstalling all the games and content again for the hundredth time (more like tenth) put me off especially now that I was pregnant and looking forward to being a mum.
But I’m babbling on so fast forward a couple of years and I hear toddlers have come to Sims 4 and my interest peaked and like a light bulb turning on Sims was all I could think about once again. I jumped onto my blogroll and found most authors stopped playing too so I had to start from scratch googling Sims legacies and searching the forums but it paid off and I found some awesome blogs to indulge my Sims addiction.
I feel it is about time I acknowledge these well deserved authors and update my legacy links page. If you haven’t already read these fantastic blogs I suggest you do there are a variety of styles and viewer ratings for all ages and I hope to aspire to their level one day.
I also just wanted to add that in real life I am super shy and if I am not very active commenting on your blog that doesn’t mean I am not reading and enjoying. That like button is my saving grace so if you see a butterfly I am loving the chapter.
I keep all your blogs open in tabs and at least once a week I make my way up then down so I can catch up quickly and be fair.
You will find all links in the menu at the top of the page under Legacy Links.
I was hoping to have this chapter up yesterday but when I opened my game things had changed. Ari and Yasmin were meant to go visit her mother for the weekend but sadly she passed away. I had no idea until I couldn’t find her in her house so I’ve had to rewrite this chapter almost completely. I should probably turn story progression off but I like the reality of it so I’ll leave it on.
So here is Ari’s chapter. It tries to explain the way he is, if this were Sims 3 he would have definitely had the workaholic trait. If I could have selected five traits I would have given him unflirty but he is family oriented and loves Yasmin.
I expect the next chapter to be up on the weekend, I’ve played just have to write but finding quiet time to do that is a bit tricky in my place and then I spend at least a day rereading and making edits although I’m never really sure it’s ever ready to be published.
I was happy to play for a little bit longer than expected so I will have even more juicy chapters up next week and I’m working on a side project, something small and light for when I need a break from Bashert so STAY TUNED! 😀
