What’s up, world? My name is Samantha, but you can (and should) call me Sam! I’ve been playing The Sims on and off for about twenty years. In the beginning, I was nine and had to beg my older sister for just a little bit of game time. Now, at twenty-nine, I’m my own boss and have no self-discipline! I’ve dabbled pretty extensively in each iteration, but The Sims 3 has my heart for now.

Other things that share that space: cats, coffee, K-pop, piano, Pokémon, Avatar: the Last Airbender, Middle Earth and all things fantasy, traveling, bridges, the colour purple, and people who don’t treat other people like garbage.

This is me!

With this blog being a decade old, here are some things that I’ve done while writing it!

Got a degree in English Literature and French.

Played seven years of competitive quidditch, including three years as a coach.

Adopted a kitten who changed my life (Dewey <3) and sadly lost him to feline leukemia when he was three.

Gutted and rebuilt my simming PC at least once.

Grew a moderately thriving Etsy store, then shut it down for fear of commitment.

Got four tattoos in an effort to overcome my fear of commitment.

Worked in South Korea for three years as an ESL teacher.


If you want to find me elsewhere, I’m a moderator on a lovely sims community called Boolprop!

I’m also Gryffindork on Sims3.com, if that’s still relevant.

  1. Beautiful simself! Where did you get her…your hair? hehe 😀

  2. Hi, er, again. I’ve been wanting to do my own legacy, but I haven’t used WordPress before, so I don’t know how to post my chapters and have readers be able to find the chapters under the options in the menu. Could you please run me through how you post your story? That would be much appreciated 😛

    • Of course, I’d love to help! 🙂 WordPress is a tricky business so I doubt I can explain it all in one go, but here’s some stuff to start…

      Do you want your “posts” page to be separate from your homepage? If so, you’ll want to create a second page (mine is “The Story”). Then go to “Settings” –> “Reading” on your dashboard, and click “Front page displays: a static page.” Then you can pick which page will show your blog posts, and which will be the homepage. My homepage is just a simple intro because it keeps things more organized. Otherwise, all the posts would pop up on there and it would take much longer to load. 😛

      As for writing, I use Windows Live Writer. You can hook it up to your WordPress account and it makes formatting ridiculously easy. I load all my screenshots in after I resize them, and then I add text as I go. Alternatively, you can upload your pictures and write the posts in WordPress itself, but I’ve found that a bit more frustrating.

      Another important thing is my “Index” post, which is just a blog post I created at the beginning so I could keep an organized list of chapters. I made it “sticky” so it never moves from the top of the archives, and now I just update it with links when I post new chapters.

      Hope that helps, and feel free to ask if there’s anything else you want to know! 🙂

      • Hello, I do actually have another question! I set my “Home” page to be my “homepage” and my “Contents” page as my “posts page”.

        Then I created a post called “Contents” (so like your Index) to use to organise my chapters. I made it sticky, and the website was all, view your post!

        So I did and it looked how I wanted it to (with “Generation One” in caps and underneath it was “1.1 – Coming Soon!”).

        But then I clicked the Contents PAGE and it showed my Contents post (I hope this isn’t getting confusing :P) and suddenly the words were all just on the same line, and it only goes back to how I want it when you go into the post. Do you know how to fix this? Here’s the link to my webpage https://lilyssims.wordpress.com/contents/

      • Oh gosh, I don’t know if I’m savvy enough for this one! I see your problem… There’s one setting you could try to tweak — under “Reading,” set “For each article in a feed, show: Full text.” It seems like WordPress is trying to pull an excerpt out of your post for the feed, and it’s losing the formatting because of that. Getting it to display the whole post instead *should* fix that. And when you start writing longer posts, you can always use the tag to choose how much of it actually shows in the feed. 🙂

        Not sure if this will actually work (it’s probably something to do with your theme) but let me know!

  3. Thank you for all your help! (It was the theme :-P) Looking forward to generation five!
