Oops, awkward!

  Recent developments in the story has Bryony researching ways to return to the custom neighbourhood of 'Patisseria', which is actually just Rflong7's Cake Island. Which is really funny, because in my story, it's actually called...Cake Island. 
   It's funny because the original first prologue that I scrapped, I didn't call Cake Island 'Cake Island' but instead called it Patisseria. And then I scrapped that prologue and wrote the new prologue that is the prologue now, where the Island is called 'Cake Island'. Talk about embarrassing! Unfortunately, I didn't notice until today. 
   In other news, something I've noticed while frolicking around Sims communities is that most stories, like mine, focus around the drama and whatnot that we put our Sims through. But I was watching sitcoms like Modern Family and Arrested Development the other day and I thought, 'why not?'. Why DON'T I make each chapter like, one little event like a bake sale or something really normal? I'll try it out in Azalea's generation and see if it goes well.
   If it does, in fact, goes well and my story/legacy turns into like, sitcom on paper, then hooray for me! I don't have to sit at my desk poring over a story and getting details and whatnot right.

Chapter 1.6: Less Drama, More Romance?

   I never noticed because I play my Sims on my laptop, but when it’s on a PC, it seems that white items such as counters and plates all give off this really pretty white glow! That explains why a lot of legacy stories have that effect, it’s because of their computer =/ So that was pretty silly.
   Anyway, I’ve installed Showtime and it’s been fun. Unfortunately it’ll be a while before any Showtime elements are really introduced to the Summers story, but that’s okay. I might start a Famacy on the back burner if I ever want to take a break from Summers. The Frosts?
   Yeah, I have to take care of that too… ><

I'm not dead, guys!

  Hey, everyone! Yeah, it's been a while since my last update considering I used to update once every three days hahaha. Maybe I shouldn't have set myself up to be a 'fast updater'. 
  I have recently gotten Showtime but haven't had time to play it yet because of how busy school is lately and the fact that my mom got me Skyrim...so that's what I've been doing.
   Also, for school, I've been doing a project for my PSYCH class on the Westboro Baptist Church and it's like watching a train wreck, in my opinion. Every time I watch one of the videos where someone interviews one of them, I just kind of stare at the screen and want to just exit my window and leave, but I end up watching like, 20 of them in a row because I can't believe how insane they all are. Holy crap!





   But anyway, I plan on installing Showtime perhaps this Wednesday, which means I can churn out an update either Friday or Saturday! Hoorah!
