My name is Heather. And I’m a Simaholic.
Hi. It all began when I heard about this newfangled people simulator. I asked my dad if he would buy it for me. He said he would, but that I’d have to wait until a trip to Costco. Yes, all the way back in 2000! It was a long, agonizing wait. THREE DAYS. I have, since unwrapping that fancy box and meeting Bob and Betty Newbie (And buying them a stereo?), been completely enamored with all things Sims. Time has obviously passed, and I’m probably way too old to be such an avid Simmer, but at least I don’t have to wait for my dad to buy me things anymore 🙂
I am the perfect consumer of The Sims, as I buy every expansion pack – even if I can’t imagine wanting its content (ie, Makin’ Magic). But, even in my darkest simming hour – I never bought Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats. There is hope for me. For now. (UPDATE: Now there’s this movie one, I don’t want a bunch of costumes? Anyone have it yet?)
I play base game, no mods, no Custom Content. (UPDATE: I added story progression, overwatch, error trap) I know I miss out on quite a bit, but I also experience a lot less problems with game play in general. I do wish I had more people in my towns – and a much better story progression, but it is what it is.
I have stumbled across so many fantastic players/bloggers – that they inspire my gaming as well as my desire to maybe, just maybe, attempt to document my own experiences. So here we go!
