I wanted to create a little thread where we can say what we're up to each day.

You don't have to oc but I thought it be nice to see a little in to each other lives :)

So today I had school which was no fun as usual lol but also it's like 32 degrees here! Soo hot I'm melting!

Worst bit is I'm playing tennis this evening and it's an important one. So not looking forward to that in the heat 🥺

I hope your days are great!

    Oof. I've been at home all day, so I can't say much, although it was just hot enough that I couldn't sleep or laze around like I was hoping.

    Right now I'm just waiting for my dinner to be cooked and I'm thinking of watching another episode of Stargate Atlantis.

    I hope your tennis match goes well.

    Ah nice, I hope your dinner was nice and you got to watch an episode or two :)

    I lost 💔 gutted!
    It was really hot but can't blame the weather, I played like trash!

    I'll have to do better next time

    Well I have approximately 15 minutes to myself before I have to wrap up some loose ends from work again so I thought I'd just pop right in. You play tennis, @Renée09? That's awesome. Do you play professionally or are you are school representative?

    Hi and welcome to the forums! :)

    I hope your work goes/went well. What do you do?

    I'm not professional sadly "if only!" I do play for my school though and also in the community which I love. It's a huge passion of mine and after school I will aim to do it professionally.

    @Renée09 that's awesome, I've never played tennis but always wanted to give it a try as it seems a lot of fun! It's also really cool that you have something you're so passionate about that you want to pursue. :)

    Not too much going on today for myself, gonna do laundry, play some more sims, and hang out with my husband and cat. It should be a pretty relaxing time!

    Hello! Nice to hear from you :)

    Definitely give tennis a go at some point. It is a really fun game. I haven't looked back since I started! I am so passionate about it. It's fun for me and an escape from the things going on at home.

    Awe cool it sounds like your having a chill fun day today "maybe except the laundry" 😋 I hope you do have a relaxing day, get to play some Sims and enjoy hanging out with your husband and cat.

    Hi there. There is actually a forum guideline that states we should refrain from posting personal information in order to protect our personal privacy.

    Under Don'ts:
    https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/979770/forum-rules-guidelines#latest

    Therefore, I will refrain from posting what my exact opccupation is at this time. I will just reveal that its prospects are promising, remunerations are lucrative and I enjoy doing what I do for a living. And no - it's definitely not anything risqué. XD

    Work went fine. Finally have some more time to myself to unwind. I do intend to have another rewatch of "A Few Good Men", or finally watch that "Passenger" movie from 2016 (which starred J Law and Chris Pratt) that I have been putting away for quite some time. Otherwise, I'll will be paying attention to whatever else they have decided to stream on NetFlix.

    Thanks for creating this thread, by the way. You seem like a nice person to interactive with. I hope for nothing but the best during your next tennis game so you will secure another victory.

    Hii happy Saturday! :)
    Oh sorry, I didn't mean to say about exactly what you do or anything like that I was just curious that's all. I better take a look at the rules as well in a moment to make sure I don't get myself into any trouble. It sounds like you enjoy your work though and that it may be taking you to better things as well. I sure hope it does for you. I don't work yet, still at school which is major bore. There's exams coming up soon which is nervous for me.

    Ahh that's awesome! I hope you do get to unwind and chill out today. I love watching films and just chilling :) I've not seen a few good men but I have seen passenger and I thought it was awesome! Hopefully you'll enjoy it
    I love Netflix I spend so much time on it usually when I'm studying and doing home work lol

    Aww thank you, you seem a lovely person and I'm love talking with you! :) I'm glad your liking the thread. I'm enjoying it to. Wasn't sure how good it would be but I like it

    Ah thanks, I'll be training today so hopefully I'll be ready for the next game!

    Cooked and baked up a storm, spent time with family, and helped rescue a poor marmalade kitty who is obviously a pet who is either lost, or abandoned or something, who was hiding under cars and meowing for a couple of days before then getting desperate.

    I'd adopt him in an instant, if I could be around cats for long and still breathe. But the weather was bad, cold and rainy with wind, and the poor thing needed shelter and food, so we put him in an upstairs bedroom with food, water, a litterbox, and I gave him a short bit of petting and reassurance, before having to get out of the room, but others took over with him.

    He's been neutered, is very gentle and well-behaved, trusting, and obviously was somebody's baby so something must have happened to his previous owner. Hopefully he'll have no trouble at all getting adopted from the shelter unless by a miracle someone wants to come take him first from our notices. We just couldn't leave him out there another day. He doesn't even know how to eat anything that's not catfood, we found that out when trying to feed him outside, on table scraps, so we got him some dry catfood and he loved that. So he can't forage, doesn't appear to know how to hunt or even rummage in trash, none of those feral-cat skills.

    Wishing him luck at the shelter, but it's better than luck on the streets, at least for this little guy.

    Today was my long overdue day off so I didn't have much planned. I'm behind on housework and it was my only day off until Friday so trying to get a few things done while I have the time but also trying to rest after a long week at work and before I go back tomorrow.

    Been trying to play Stardew Valley on my switch but I'm so tired and keep losing focus. Contemplating a nap but I'm usually out for 3-4 hours and then I won't sleep tonight before work also there's a hockey game I want to watch tonight and it's soon so probably I shouldn't nap now lol.

    Aww that's so sad but happy at the same time. Sadly a lot of animals are left out because I guess their owners died or they were just abandoned. It's horrible to think of any animal outside on its own all scared and cold. So nice of you despite suffering with allergies? I guess, that you took it in to save it from outside. Sadly a lot of people just leave animals out to fend for themselves.

    I wish him luck as well and hope that he is adopted soon.

    It sounds like it's been real busy and rushed for you lately. I hope you enjoyed your day off and got the much needed rest you've been after :)

    I love Stardew Valley, I've done a lot on it now but not playing as much as I did been busy with school and tennis.
    Hope you got to watch your hockey game and got a nap in the end lol.

    Time for my own update now :)

    I've not been here much, been so busy with school and tennis practice. Mostly with school tho which is no fun. Exams are coming up so I'm trying to get my head down and study hard, get as good grades at pos. Easier said than done tho! My mum pretty easy and fair, says just do the best you can but dad is really pressuring wants me to do extremely well and get A's all the way. That's unlikely! I'm not good enough or clever enough to get A's, D is more my speed at school. I am going to the community centre after school today tho, meet up with my friends Charlie and Pru and we're going to talk about the next community tennis match and probably do some training. Charlie and I are at a similar level I think, tho she's probably better than me and Pru is on a whole nother level, she's amazing at it and I learn so much from her every time! She's a bit older and like my coach.

    After that I'm just going to chill in my room and read a little I expect.

    Didn't end up getting much rest because I have the worst neighbours and they were causing noise and trouble until very late at night.

    I did manage to watch the hockey game didn't go how I wanted but oh well I'll be watching the next one under my desk at work today hoping for redemption lol.

    I get that, I didn't play Stardew for a long time because work and too many other hobbies with way too little time for it all. But I picked it up again recently and it's like the first time all over again so fun haha.

    I hope your exams go well. And that you have fun training with your friends and good luck on the next tennis match.

    What I'm doing is trying to get to 15 posts so I can make my own thread, so thanks for the easy one haha! :D
  • ignominiusrexignominiusrex Posts: 1,876 Member
    Hope you reach the milestone soon, @BlueBananaSims !

    I am heading toward a Sims3 session on the larger gaming PC screen, its amazing how much better it is when I can see everything at max resolution! I have a.werewolf in Midnight Hollow with the lifetime wish to be the Top Dog (leader of a werewolf pack) and a townie in Hidden Springs who has the Gold Digger aspiration ( for this, he needs to marry a rich sim and then "see their ghost".

    So tons of fun to be had!

    Then I have to try to get to bed at a reasonable hour because I am planning on a career change and need to stop keeping vampire hours. 🧛‍♂️

    Ah I'm sorry, some neighbours can be so inconsiderate can't they. Hopefully they'll be quieter tonight.

    It sucks when you wait for something you enjoy but it doesn't go the way you were hoping it would. That happens to me a lot lol. Did you manage to watch the game at work in the end? :) I hope it went better this time.

    I'm so glad you managed to get back to Stardew Valley! It's I've of those games I think will always be fun no matter what. I really enjoy it no matter how long I break from it. Hope you keep having fun with it.

    Thank you :) That's so nice of you.

    Ahh that sounds a lot of fun for you! I've heard so much of the Sims 3 but never played yet, I really need to try and give it a go at some point. It looks and sounds amazing. It sounds like your game is going great. I like your Sims aspirations! The one with gold digger sounds awful lol :open_mouth:

    Ah cool good luck with your career change! :) I hope you get the career you're after. Do you know what you want to do next?

    I visited an endocrinologist today and was officially diagnosed with Graves' Disease. So that's something to get used to. Now I'm waiting for an MRI to make sure all my symptoms are "just" stress and Graves'. I'm hoping I don't also have a brain tumor and drowning my sorrows in The Sims :relieved:

    Hello, welcome to the forum. I'm sorry to hear about all your going through. I really hope it is just graves and there's no tumour involved. The Sims is a great distraction and I find it so relaxing, so hopefully you will to. Keep smiling and stay positive. I'm sure it will all be fine:)

    I had a kidney transplant last , and left the hospital on Sunday. The hospital requested that I stay in a hotel two blocks away because I have frequent checkups (3 three times a week, so I am there now. My strength has started to return and today I did my first walk to the hospital and back, instead of taking as shuttle bus. I felt really proud of myself, but I needed to lay down for a while afterwards. :D I couldn't bring my computer with me because it's a big ol' tower, so I'm missing my games. I did bring my laptop, but no mouse, so right now my gaming is limited to a Pokemon emulator..
