1  A Safe Haven / General Discussion / Re: Important Life Events on: August 09, 2010, 10:29:56 pm
Hello, Insim! And a special hello to Nonni, Dasi, and Jenna! I have missed you ladies!

As you've probably noticed, (or maybe not, ha!), I haven't been on here in ages. RL has been getting in the way of my Sims time, unfortunately. Anyway, I finally have some time to spare, so I thought I would give you guys an update on my crazy life.

First of all, I finally finished that silly thing called college, however, I'm going back for more. I just can't seem to stay away from it! I'm only going for another semester, to become an Emergency Medical Technician. I had a big job interview at a local Fire Dept, and they are interested in hiring me. Which is great news, of course, but I'm also enlisting in the Army National Guard. Currently, I'm just trying to juggle all of these things, (and my current job, as a Caregiver to an elderly woman, and my side job as Freelance Photographer), and I may have to give up on one of them, and it will probably be the job opportunity. Although, if they are genuinely interested in hiring me, there's always a chance they'll still be interested once I finish Basic Training.

Basically, the military is currently my first priority. I have wanted to enlist since I was 16. When I was 17, I actually started the process, but couldn't finish, (I ended up getting sick and had to have emergency surgery. I managed to lose ten pounds, putting me UNDER the minimum weight to enlist). Now, things are looking good - I'm almost done with the entire enlistment process, (it's not as quick and easy as it seems).

So, if all goes well, I will be able to sign my papers/swear in on September 3! The main concern right now, is that I'm still a bit underweight. We always hear stories about people having the opposite problem, but being underweight is just as bad! Some people seem to think it's a blessing, but it's not. I just *love* having random people stop me, and ask if I have an eating disorder.  rolleyes

Anyway, that pretty much sums up my "Important Life Events" at the moment. School, more school, work, military... I guess I've been pretty busy!  tongue

P.S. The Sims is way better than real life!  Wink

 Hug2 to all of you!

I don't think you can actually change a Sim's ears. The only way to get faerie/elf ears is to use the face template with those ears, or to apply accessory elf ears...

Ren at MTS has some nice elf ears: There are also some recolors to match different custom skin tones, but I can't remember where I found those. Probably on MTS as well.

Hope that helps!  Wink

Great update, Astral! I didn't expect that Victoria would be a teen so soon! Haha.

*Joins the club of Erik haters* I'm still mad that he smashed her dollhouse in the first chapter!  Mad

Raenelle? Thats a really good name. I like it.

Haha. Thanks. I like it too...sometimes. I just hate that people have such a hard time pronouncing it, and spelling it correctly. I have to repeat it several times before people can even pronounce it correctly...It takes even longer for them to even remember it! Heh.  tongue

The thing I do like about it, is that it's not one of those names that one can really make fun of. When I was in grade school, I never got picked on for my name, nor could anyone even think of anything to rhyme with it. Hah. So, that's a plus, I guess. Although, a few years ago my little brother (he's 12 now), came up with one. He started calling me Raenelle bell.  tongue

...the sad thing is, he still does it!  tongue

Great news!  Cheesy Thank you for letting us know this, Ali.

*Points and laughs at Jenna, and applauds Paden for tripping her and putting the cheezserver back where it belongs*

My user name is just something I came up with, when I was bored one day. It's not my real name....although, I've honestly considered changing my name to Aralie because I like it so much! Hahaha.  tongue I kind of hate my real name. It's uncommon, long, and hard to spell. Same with my last name! I wish I could change them both! No one can ever figure out how to spell or pronounce them. Ugh!  tongue

My avatar is a lovely picture of me smoking.  Wink
15  A Safe Haven / General Discussion / Re: Any artists on InSim? on: February 07, 2009, 11:12:52 pm
I do quite a bit of photography...that's probably my main "artsy" thing. Heh. I also sing and write my own music/lyrics...along with poems and the like. I used to sing at a local coffee shop and I've been in quite a few bands. I don't really do that anymore though. It's kind of funny...I had no problem performing in front of people for the longest time (largest audience was about 800 people!), now I've developed horrible stage fright! Haha. I also used to draw and do ballet and ice skate. I can't do any of those anymore. It's kind of a shame, because I was really good at them. Oh well. I probably could draw again if I took time to do it. No ballet or ice skating anymore since my knee injury...  Cry
