[sticky post] Welcome to Katri's simming journal!

Hello, and welcome to my simming blog! I'm Katri, a thirtysomething Finnish simmer, and this is my place to share my stories, general babbles, pictures and whatever else might cross my mind. So far, this has been a Sims 2 blog exclusively, but who knows about the future.

Below you can find an index of sorts about what you can find on this blog. It'll likely be updated and improved on occasion.

I currently have two ongoing stories, The Bookacy Family Alphabet Adventures and its spin-off, Villains or Heroes. Both are challenge-based, the former is an Alphabet Legacy and the latter an Apocalypse challenge. Both are also at least partially plot-driven these days. In addition, I play something which is not a story, an observational Build a City challenge called Lakewood: Just a BaCC.

Be warned: I started the alphabetacy in 2007 when I was much younger and had more time than today. Then I was hit by adulthood and responsibilities, a truckload of plot, the brilliant idea to play the whole neighborhood, and the desire to play and write other things. So these days, story updates are a pretty rare occurrence, but I do intend to keep going, however slow my progress might be.

Weekly simming 7/2017

Again, this week's simming mostly consisted of TS4. The legacy attempt is still fun and relaxing, so I'm sticking to it, for now anyway. The family has one kid currently, a toddler, and they're expecting their second now. I'm having fun exploring the toddler features. The little ones are such a handful! But fun, for me anyway. :) To be honest, this is the most excited that I've been about a challenge in a while. Feels nice.

I did play a bit of TS2 in the weekend, too, and finally finished the Capps in the Lakewood rotation and posted picspam on them. I also wrote a little bit of them (as well as the TS4 legacy), but I'm still behind there. Well, I'll get there, and simming has been fun, so all's good.

Not sure how next week turns out, but hopefully there's some time for sims there too.

Weekly simming 6/2017

Last week's simming, let's see. Well, I didn't actually open TS2 once during last week. Real life has been sort of tiring, but I have played some TS4 to relax. I've been having fun with that second legacy attempt, and I think it's going pretty well too, so it's all good.

Real life may continue to be tiring this week, so no big promises there. I know I'm behind on commenting on some fun updates posted in the past week or so, I hope to get to those some time this week. We'll see, that bugger called real life takes priority, and it's a demanding thing sometimes.

Weekly simming 5/2017

There was a little bit of simming this week, actually in two games.

During the week, I felt like playing just for relaxing, and TS4 felt like the game for that. I sort of messed up my previous legacy attempt and got bored, so I started a new one. I confess that I was partially tempted into it by the addition of toddlers: I'm curious. Again, I'm documenting for myself, but don't know if I'll publish it. Maybe if it looks like I'll stick to it. For now, I'm enjoying not thinking about having a new chapter to finish and all that.

Today, after first playing some more of that legacy, I even felt like playing TS2. I actually had a longish play session with the Capps, although I still didn't finish their week. I played some business, plus there was a birthday and a subsequent makeover.

So, a bit of progress there. Oh, and I also did a bit of writing, so that counts too. Winter is slow, but I think this week has been more productive than the few before it.

Weekly simming 4/2017

Almost forgot to do weekly simming! Well, still not much to report. I did manage to post that picspam I've been sitting on, and on Saturday, I even played the Capps for a tiny bit. Probably a half a day or something such. They're quite close to the end of the rotation. So close... Mustering the energy and concentration is kind of hard at the moment. Buuut... Well, bit by bit. No promises, but maybe we're moving towards a more productive time. I hope so anyway.

Weekly simming 3/2017

Quickly before bed. Again, not a huge amount of progress this week, but a little bit in the weekend. I played the Capps forward, they're at Saturday evening currently. It's a busy and fun week I find. :) I also wrote them a little bit, but as almost always, I'm behind there. Shamefully, that Alphabetia picspam is still unposted.

I'm guessing it's this time of the year. It's kaamos time, so just dragging oneself to work and back is enough of a task. Well, in that respect things are getting better little by little, there's a little bit more of light every day. Well, we'll see how next week goes.

Weekly simming 2/2017

As I suspected, last week was a bit quiet in the simming department. I had a pretty rough week at work and needed to just get my head to relax in the evenings.

But I made it through, and simmed a little bit in the weekend; the Capp family are now at Thursday morning I think, and there was a teen birthday too. I wrote a little bit of them, but admittedly not that much. The previous set of picspam from Alphabetia is still unposted.

This week should be a bit more on the normal side with work, so maybe I'll have a bit more energy this time. But I suppose that remains to be seen.

Weekly simming 1/2017

Welcome to the first weekly simming of the year!

The first week of 2017 was pretty good for simming matters. I managed to do the things on my to-do from last week: post picspam on the Mendozas as well as write some simming goals for the year.

It was a long weekend, so just in the end of the week I also got some actual playing done. I managed to finish the next Alphabetia household, though the picspam is still unposted. Now this evening I played a little bit of the Capp household in Lakewood, they're at Wednesday morning currently.

So not a bad first week of simming this year I'd say. Next week is supposed to be pretty busy at least work-wise, but maybe in the weekend I could have some time. We'll see.

Year in review + simming goals 2017

So, I set it on my todo for this week to do my traditional year in review post, so here goes. My goals for last year were pretty simplistic:

2016Collapse )

So all in all, pretty good I'd say. I haven't really thought about what I want to do simming-wise this year, so I'll have to make it up as I go. I want to keep it simple still, but on the other hand, I wouldn't want to do the same thing every year. So let's see.

2017Collapse )

Okay, I think that's enough for this year. We'll see how it goes!

Weekly simming 52/2016

And here we are again. Happy 2017, folks!

Perhaps a bit surprisingly, I did manage some progress even in the last week of 2016. I wasn't doing anything in particular on New Year's Eve, so I did some sim stuff and managed to finish the final update of the year, the first part of the fourth week in Lakewood. That was a long time coming, I had been slacking off with writing the update, but now it's done and I'm content with that.

Then today, I got a bit of progress too. I started playing the next household in Alphabetia and managed about a day and a half, while also doing other stuff today. So not bad. It's the third-to-last household of the main 'hood rotation, too, so slowly I'm getting close to playing my heir in college. Yay!

I'm still due to post that picspam from the previous household, plus I should do my year in review post too. I'll put those on my to-do for the coming week and see how that goes. I'm not sure yet what goals or such I want to have for my simming this year, but one thing I know I want to do: these progress reports. Even if there isn't always much/anything to report, it keeps me more active.

So, progress or no, see you next week with the first weekly simming of the year!
