Schrödinger's Spam. It's there and isn't at the same time
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Re: What is the size of your 'Downloads' Folder ? on: April 10, 2017, 10:14:16 pm
264........kilobytes, spread across one download. (Censor blur removal+easier 45 degree item rotation thing)

TL;DR: Bought Sims 2 Double Deluxe to parlay the code it came with into a Sims 2 Ultimate Collection download. Today, got it finally set up and working properly with the black box shadow thingies eliminated for the time being.

I'd hardly consider myself a ten-year member considering that there's about a year and half of relative (even by our standards) inactivity.

The original Carrie adaptation. John Travolta had a wonderful head of hair back in the day.

Finally learning rudimentary Redstone in Minecraft.

Tax time is coming in the next few months
Using last year's total return amount as a starting point, I can assume that I'll only need to save up an additional $300-400 for a proper borderline OTT gaming laptop. ('cause I gots no real room in the house to put a desktop)
Sims 2 is going on it.
Sims 2, me the creative writer-y guy, y'know the drill: Stories I'll likely never write but postulate on endlessly.

Contrary to popular opinion, I'm not dead. DADDY'S BACK.....

In no order:
  • Wondering if I overdid it a bit with what I ate today (Then again, that's some of the fun of Thanksgiving)
  • Watching my handegg/football
  • Just learned that my dad owes a borderline preposterous amount of child support (something close to $46k)

Clearing out my e-mail. Only 1180-ish messages left to see if relevant.

Running some DIY tech support for my laptop. Something something hard drive, something something amount of free space appears to be shrinking, I need to make myself an admin on it but none of the current admins can remember their passwords to facilitate me making myself an admin, etc. etc........

Working on a collection of retold fairytales. Somehow, the witch in my version of Hansel and Gretel uses her gingerbread house as a front for a meth lab and the Big Bad Wolf in my spin on it is a werewolf with emotional problems.

I can't seem to find a job for the life of me. At last guess, I sent out...erm...80-ish applications for all sorts of places. Wanna know how many interviews I've gotten so far? None. How many callbacks even requesting an interview or a polite rejections have I got? None. It's quite humiliating really. My situation annoys me so much that I had one of my more brilliant/absurd moneymaking ideas today: For a small fee per minute, I'd hold a conversation with you about anything. File that alongside selling ad space on my clothing and getting someone to sponsor my social media accounts for stupid/possibly genius ideas.

I also can't seem to get the first page or so of my debut novel going. I feel like once I write it out a bit, the rest'll come easily. It's the getting the ball rolling that irks me.

Self-image. Mine's not stellar. About the only thing about me I like is my hair, simply because it's low maintnence and yet looks great no matter what. This particular problem isn't helped by my parent's recent marital issues, which do actually seem to concern me and my so-called "lack of ambition." This isn't me blaming myself for anything, it's the honest truth as learned by overhearing their arguements.

People. I prefer talking to people like this to actual face to face contact. I don't particularly like crowds and go out of my way to avoid them as much as possible.

Fun fact: I don't intend on having children.

Right now "watching" (as in glancing up once in a while) Independence Day. Only thing on TV, so it's either that or figuring out something to do on my computer. I just feel very lazy today...

Can't say it enough, but I love that movie. It knows not to take itself super-seriously.

If I had my way, I'd make it so that if people want a drivers license in the USA, they'd be REQUIRED to learn how to drive stick shift as well as automatic.


...in other words, it's kinda lucky I don't have much interest in pursuing a political career.
