Backstory: “Aaron and Elizabeth are young adults and are siblings that live away from home. They each live in different US states. They and their parents are all very excited! It is the USA Thanksgiving time this week and they are coming home to spend time with their parents! Their parents are setting up separate guest bedrooms for them to sleep in whilst at home. Their mother wants to also include a favourite childhood item in the guest bedrooms to remind them of when they were a child. Could you please design a guest bedroom either for Aaron OR for Elizabeth . You can only design one guest bedroom. The room is not normally a guest bedroom, so it can’t be a large bedroom. It is a room that has been converted into a bedroom for the Thanksgiving time. The family would be very appreciative if you could design a guest bedroom for them!”
My Interpretation: After Aaron went off to college in another state, his parents downsized by bulldozing what use to be his bedroom. Upon returning home temporarily for Thanksgiving this year, his parents turned the garage into a makeshift bedroom.
This is the first time I built something in the Sims 4. Since it’s Small Business Saturday I wanted to build a retail store. I modeled it after the Apple Store. Does my Sims clothing look familiar? This was really time-consuming, and I didn’t even furnish it yet. Here are the results:
Tents are on both sides of the building for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.
I put a food stall and bench in the back of the store.
Glass Ceiling (technically its nothing right there at all lol)
Store looks small, doesn’t it?
Until you realize it’s an underground store.
There will be four sections. One will be for kids.
Taylor: Thanks! Hey Doc’, before I go, is there anything you can give me to keep me in bed at night?
Doctor: For sleepwalking?
Taylor: Nah. Every night I wake up around the same time and it’s hard for me to go back to sleep.
Doctor: The same time?
Taylor: Yeah, around 2-3AM.
Doctor: Not to go to the restroom?
Doctor: Not because you’re having recurring nightmares?
Doctor: Not for a late night snack?
Taylor: No. Not for any reason whatsoever.
Doctor: I’m not trying to scare you but …
Taylor: But what???
Doctor: When you wake up around 2-3AM without ANY reason, there’s an 86% chance that someone …
Taylor: Someone is what???
Doctor: … watching you.
Taylor: gulps saliva But, but, I, I live, I live alone.
10 hours later …
Taylor: talking to self Haha. Sean and Gus are so silly! Man! I love Psych! Well, it’s 9. Time for bed.
5 hours later …
Taylor: talking to self out loud It’s 7 already??? looks at alarm clock It’s 2:30. Dammit! Why I keep waking up around this time? starts thinking about what doctor said I can’t believe I’m about to do this! looks under bed Nothing under there. gets up, checks closet Nothing in there but clothes. looks out window No one outside. What the hell am I doing? Haha. I’m letting my doctor scare me. This just what he wanted. Haha. He got me! I’ma tell him about this mess tomorrow. Haha. Let me get back in bed and try to sleep. talking to self on inside I mean, if someone was watching me, they would have to be in vicinity of my bed. It’s nothing around my bed but my ironing board, my paper shredder, my lamp, my alarm clock, and my looks in that direction OHHHH MYYYY GODDDUH! OH MY GOD! OHHHH MY GOD!
Yeah, the date got pushed to June 8, but look on the bright side: You got more time to refine your pitch and work on your current idea. And, you have more time for the recruitment process to have other ideas presented. What’s 40 or 50 dollars? Furthermore, with it not being on Mother’s Day weekend, there will be more support. You need to start attending Tech Cocktails. Keep up with your coding!!!
Lenina Huxley: I was wondering if you would like to have sex?
John Spartan: [surprised] Here? With you? Now?
Lenina Huxley: [nervously, nodding] Mm-hmm.
John Spartan: Oh yeah!
[after futuristic, contact-free “sex”]
John Spartan: Look, Huxley, why don’t we just do it the old-fashioned way?
Lenina Huxley: [stands up, shocked] Eeewww, disgusting! You mean … *fluid transfer*?
Lenina Huxley: [stamping her foot] You are a savage creäture John Spartan, and I wish for you to leave my domicile now!
Har-old, here’s an excerpt of the first conversation my now wife and I had when we first met and the topic of discussion was sex:
Her: You wanna know why the traditional woman makes a man wait for sex?
Her: Because she knows the typical man will lose interest in her afterwards. And everything before sex is nothing but hyping, promoting, marketing, advertising all her non-physical qualities. Her personality, her sense of humor, her intellect, her dreams and aspirations, her creativity, her ideas of fun, her imagination, you name it. And when she’s confident in those things then she haves sex and depending on how the guy acts afterward she knows how good of a job she did with her advertising. Most men rather have sex for the first time with a different woman than have sex the second time with the same woman.
Me: I hope I like and love you SO much one day that I never want to have physical sex with you!
Her: Haha! But, I do want to have kids one day, don’t you?
Me: Yeah, but, let’s make our first child a brainchild.
So, began, a sex life built on the foundation of two quotes: Andy Warhol’s “Never doing it is very exciting.” And strippers’ “look but don’t touch” rule. What made this foundation solid was your persistence with your mind over matter (brains over beauty) philosophy when it came to the f gender. Do not stop thinking like that! Remember: The power of physicality is its potential to ruin everything. Now I’m not telling you to find the world’s smartest girl, however, the world’s ugliest girl, because physical features is the initial attraction … unless you’re online. By the way, wife is hot!
Har-old, you are NOT a John Spartan! There is no male presently living in your time who’s better prepared for futuristic, contact-free sex than you. You have po-ten-tial to master something at your age that man unconsciously puts to use in his 40’s. Notice I used po-ten-tial for you and unconsciously for them because you are fully aware of this great power. But being aware of it isn’t good enough. You must apply, constantly. Fortunate for you, you got me, to help you cheat. Read between the lines of Masturbating With Imagination, letters on patience, read The Art Of Sex Transmutation chapter, and sharpen your Eidetic memory. Most importantly, work on your child-like imagination because the future is ruled by it.
We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.
When an entrepreneur, an inventor, the mastermind, or just a person in general, dies, they always say WHO they’re survived by. For instance, Steve Jobs:
Jobs is survived by his wife of 20 years, Laurene, and four children, including one from a prior relationship.
The thing I dislike about being survived by a WHO is that person will eventually die themselves. That’s temporary survival. You want staying power. So, Har-old, would you like to know how to truly live forever? Be survived by a WHAT. An idea. A good one. A great one.
Instead of being survived by a WHO, a person with their own mind, be survived by a WHAT, YOUR mind.
You know how they say of someone who’s in la la land:
He’s in his own world. Physically here; mentally there.
Well, let’s reverse that in death da da land: mentally here; physically there. Here is living. There is gone.
The idea is to be survived by your energy.
I use to fear death. Then I discovered the power of my mind and the ideas it could produce. You know what’s so powerful about your ideas? They are instant businesses. It isn’t how fast you can think of a good idea, but rather, how fast this good idea can be a reality existing outside of your mind. And you’re becoming king of that. It is happening NOW.
The lightbulb is not on the top of your head. It’s in your head, genius. Your brain is the lightbulb, Har-old.
P.S. I don’t think I’m done with that drawing. I think I should add upside down lightbulbs.
