9.22 – A Small Step for Mankind

A/N: Song is here. Bit of a time jump between this chapter and the last, but that’s because this will be the second to last chapter of Gen. 9! We’re finally almost done with Link’s rollercoaster of a generation. Woooo!

The year following our daughter’s birth was rough, to say the least. I thought Ava and I were on the path to divorce for a while. We were constantly exhausted, snappy, and cranky towards each other. She screamed at me for ‘burying myself in work’ and ‘not doing enough’ for the baby, but it’s not like I could grow a set of boobs. Plus I had to work. Money is important…

But for every reason I had to give up, my beautiful little girl gave me ten times more to never stop trying.

9.21 – Blanket of Snow

A/N: Song is here. I changed the house Link and Ava live in because the old one was too laggy, so hopefully this one is better! Just imagine their house underwent major renovations. Also wow it’s been nearly half a year since the last story update. My life has changed a lot since then, but this story is something that will always remain constant. Sorry for the shorter chapter, but once again, I just want to get back in the flow of writing!

The town was in an uproar.

Vanished criminal heir to Svartur reappears in wedding to local girl.

I frowned upon reading the morning newspaper’s article. “Ava? Look at this.” I folded the paper roughly in half and left it on her place mat.

Ava shuffled in a moment later, still in her kitty slippers and robe. Pushing her glasses up her nose, she stifled a yawn and rested her chin on her hand as she read.

Sunshine Blogger Award

Thank you so much to Keira from Method to my Melody for nominating me! Highly recommend her blog to all of you, even though it’s not a sims-related blog. I find it relatable and entertaining to read about her daily life, and she posts beeeeautiful pictures.

Here are the rules for being nominated:

  • Thank the blogger that nominated you in the post and link back to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you
  • Nominate 8-11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award Logo on your post and/or in your blog

Questions I was asked:

  1. Would you rather go to the zoo, library, or art museum?  Now don’t judge me here, but I’ve expressed my feelings towards libraries and art museums in the past. To sum it up… Libraries: Too quiet, strict, and stuffy. Not enough background noise just makes me hyper aware of everything I do and I get a bit uneasy. Great books though! Art museums: Can’t touch the art!!! Agh!!! Wanna touch so bad!!! Therefore I choose the zoo because animals ❤
  2. When’s the last time you went dancing? I’m assuming this is public dancing? And not “dancing” around the kitchen or bedroom with my boyfriend lol I do that pretty often. Anyway, it would probably be late January at the last party I danced at.
  3. What do you love about your hometown? There’s a huge variety of things to do! We have parks, shopping centers, tons of places to eat, lots of sports related things, movie theaters, bowling alleys…
  4. How have you changed in the last decade? A ton? Haha I literally went from being a child to an adult. Learned way too much to even attempt to write about it!
  5. What’s on your bucket list? Travel outside of the United States! I still really really want to go to New Zealand, Japan, or Europe.
  6. Who has served as your role model? More often than not, my role models are my peers.
  7. What past jobs have you had? And what do you do now? I’ve only ever had one job (whoops need to get working on that…) and it was at an vet’s. Got to do a lot of food and water and poop scooping. But there were cute puppies! Now I’m in my third year of college studying engineering.
  8. Where’s your favorite place to eat lunch? Ooooooooh probably HuHot Mongolian Grill. I love that it’s customizable and a buffet-style place. Unlimited food and unlimited combinations? Yes please.
  9. How do you act when you’re angry? I usually just tend to get a little quieter and snappy. It takes a lot to get me to yell (unless it’s my brother lol he’s an exception). I’m actually more likely to cry out of anger than yell.
  10. What’s your perfect Sunday? Sleeping in and then waking up to my boyfriend’s adorable face and cuddles, going on a walk through a forest, then going out to eat somewhere. Movie, more cuddles, playing with some animals, cooking dinner together. Throw some quality time with my brother in there too and that’s basically it.
  11. What have you learned this week? That it is possible to get a B in a class when you got a 29% on the first test. That’d be thermodynamics for ya.

 

Nominations:

As is quickly becoming the standard for me, I’m not going to nominate people because I’m sooooo close to having the next chapter ready! Just have to take a few more pictures and edit them. Ahhhh it’ll be so nice to return to Link and Ava 🙂  Thank you all for sticking around!

The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you very very much to Kymber of booomcha.com for nominating me for this award! She’s an amazing writer and her story is one of the best I’ve ever read, so I would definitely recommend checking it out.

file_000

The rules for accepting this award are simple:

  • Write 7 interesting facts about yourself
  • Nominate 15+ amazing bloggers for this award. That’s a lot of bloggers when you’re a newbie. I won’t be offended if you choose not to “do anything with it.”

Facts About Me:

1) I recently took up longboarding and I love it! Of course, I’m still a newbie and I’m terrified to go very fast, but the thrill is more than worth it 🙂

2) It’s so hard to choose, but Asian food is probably my favorite

3) I’ve had trichotillomania since middle school, and while I’m definitely doing better at controlling it now, I still struggle with it.

4) I failed my first test (ever) with a solid 29% XD

5) I eat Noosa yogurt everyday for breakfast

6) Speaking of breakfast food, I like to put honey on my cereal before milk

7) Every time I cook boxed mac n cheese, I will mess it up and probably burn it. Guarenteed.

Not nominating anyone because it took me soooo long to get around to writing this. I apologize if I’ve gotten behind on reading any of your posts T.T It’s been a busy semester but I hope to get caught up real soon!

9.20 – Promise

A/N: Song is here. Wow I’ve missed you! My hiatus was longer than expected and will still be in effect while I’m in school, but I won’t abandon this story! Gen 9 will just take longer than expected XD Although this chapter is waaay on the short side, I’m so excited to be writing again and interacting with you guys!

“Things worked out well for you, didn’t they?” Pan scoffed while fiddling with the edge of the couch. “You get to marry her, you get to be a major part of her life and meanwhile I’m…”

“She wants to meet you.”

“But her father won’t let me! Oh this is ridiculous, I’m her father. Elubarin should have no say in our relationship!” Pan gestured aggressively at the air, then dropped his arms and sighed. “I suppose he has the right to, being her legal guardian and all. Link, we’ve had this conversation twenty times now. Is anything ever going to change?”

I gave him a shrug. “That depends on…”

Liebster Award + I’m Slow

Hello! I was nominated yet again by the lovely Sempreviva, thank you so much ❤️

Questions:

If your life was a movie, what genre would it be closer to?

Comedy? Definitely not an action movie lol


Who would play you in that movie?

I’m going to say Chloe Bennet should, because she’s the only half asian actress I can think of 😅


What would the setting be like?

Probably my college dorm or apartment. That’s where all the good stuff goes down


What style would the music be ? (last one about that bloody movie, I promise!)

Relaxing and tranquil… I’d love if it sounded like TSFH


What creature are you most horrified of?

June Bugs. No, seriously. Those bugs are fucking terrifying


If you had to lose one of your 5 senses for exchange of a new one, which one would it be?

I guess I would lose my sense of taste? That way I could eat gross things just by plugging my nose


What would that new sense be like?

Uhhhh to sense what health issues I and/or others have? Like I could just look at someone and be able to tell they have diabetes? This could go either way… Either it’s viewed as an invasion of privacy or I can use it to diagnose people and save lives


What popular song you absolutely cannot stand to listen to?

All About that Bass


Can you describe your dream date?

Having a nice meal (homecooked or restuarant), hiking or exploring caves, then coming home and snuggling while watching Netflix until we fall asleep 😍


Can you describe your ideal night in?

Playing sims, watching Game of Thrones and snacking, catching up on sleep and snuggles


What about the weirdest dream you ever had?

I dreamed I was being chased by a green jeep with no one inside it. Then the jeep exploded. Is that weird?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So most likely, the next update won’t come until I visit home from college, and even then I might not have time to post 😦  But the story will go on eventually! I’m not done yet 😉
