The Sims 4 Update

The Sims 4 Update

This update is so very important


There are so many video games out there that it's hard to really wrap your head around it. A lot of them are a ton of fun to play, but it's sometimes hard to be able to picture yourself as one of the characters. There are a lot of games that allow character customization where you can spend hours of your life trying to create the most perfect character that looks just like you, or just like the person that you imagined in your head before you started the customization. Most of those games do an adequate job at trying to make the character that you imagined come to life; however, The Sims 4 just took the cake and made all other games look weak in comparison.

Recently, The Sims 4 just came out with an update that will make the Create a Sim (CAS) option so much better and way more customizable. This is just part of what it looks like:

Now I don't know about you, but this is freaking awesome. Being able to customize this many aspects of your character makes the game that much more accessible for those who are in the LGBTQA+ community and those that aren't sure where they are yet. This makes the CAS so much better for those who want to make a character that is just like them. The update also enables players to give their female characters clothing and hairstyles that were originally only offered to the male characters and vise versa. It's such an incredible update to a game that was already extremely accepting of any and all people.

I think that this is one of the coolest things to ever happen for a myriad of reasons. One of those many reasons is that now, when younger kids are playing this, they will see that boys with female figures and a preference to female clothes is a normal occurrence, and it might resonate to their everyday lives. Being able to show kids that whatever they see in games is totally acceptable in real life, is so very important. It is a way to start a conversation about acceptance and loving others for how they choose to live.

This is something that hasn't happened in other games and it's so great that a franchise that has been around for years is taking advantage of this opportunity and is giving their gamers something that will make their game play more rewarding.

The Sims 4 was already an incredible game and now, with this update, they are able to make more people happy and really make the game an accepting place. I'm so happy for this new update and can't wait to really get into it and start learning more about what this update can do. Hopefully you start playing this wonderful game too! It'll be well worth it.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
