The Sims 3--one of the best and most popular computer games we have today. A life simulation game that encompasses a very wide variety of real-world scenarios, the replayability and the amount of new content to be discovered within the game can never be understated.

This game is unique in many different ways. Even though this is the 3rd game in the franchise, and there have been several spinoffs and variations, and there has since been a 4th game created, this is often regarded as the best and most extensive game out of them all. That's commendable, as this rarely happens with games these days.

I've been a huge fan of the game since I was around 12 years old. My dad pre-ordered it for my birthday, and I anxiously awaited it's arrival, as it was one of the games i'd been anticipating the most in my life. When I finally got it, I was hooked. For a period in my life, that was my main source of entertainment, being one of the only things I'd do in my free time. I'd always look up new and exciting things to find, do, and discover within the game. Eventually, I thought it's be a good idea to share my experiences with others, so I started uploading videos of my Sims 3 adventures to YouTube via the game's built-in screen capture system. At it's peak, I knew everything there was to know about the game. I only had 3 expansion packs for it, but even when I wasn't playing the game, I'd be online looking at different aspects of all Sims games that interested me. It was my passion.

Quite unfortunately, my interest faded from it over the years, mostly due to the fact that my computer became slow and laggy and unable to run the game, and that by the time it was fixed, I lost the game disk. Thus, I went into a four year dry spell of not playing the game. I developed many new interests, of course, but the memories I always had with The Sims 3 always stuck with me. I was constantly trying to find a good opportunity to rekindle my love for the game, and start playing and uploading videos again. That time finally came not too long ago.

About a month ago, I obtained a copy of The Sims 3 Complete Collection; a version of the game that includes every expansion pack, stuff pack, as well as all updates. I was a little rusty, but as soon as I got into the swing of things again I remembered why I had loved the game so much. So I thought "What better way to get back into the game then to start uploading a brand new video series right to youtube?". I attempted to do that before, but I was much less experienced with video editing back then than I am now. I have a new computer, new webcam, and some new equipment too, all of which would make for much better quality videos than I had made before!

All that being said, to commence my getting back into the Sims 3 community, and to further my knowledge of the game as well as to put out more content, I'm starting a brand new Let's Play series right on my YouTube channel! This is the first episode, and I've recorded it in such a way that you can understand it even if you've never played the game before. I encourage everyone to watch the series, whether you're a new or experienced player. This first episode is mainly just an introduction, wherein I create a sim, show some of the basics, explain some details, and have some interesting conversation with my brother. I can't wait to see where this series ends up going--I have high hopes! I really hope you like it too, and if you do, then feel free to like, comment, and share!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
