The Sims 4 has potential

What The Rest Of The Sims 4 Could Look Like

The possibilities are quite endless.


The Sims 4 is still kicking. With Strangerville just releasing, we very well could have more expansion packs down the line. The Sims 3 ran from 2009 to 2013 (meaning we could very well have expansion packs for the Sims 4 running until the 2020s).

While the Sims 3, in my opinion, was the best Sims, Sims 4 is still very good. While we can no longer walk everywhere, play as our animals, or go to college, the possibilities are still up in the air as to what we could possibly have in the future of expansion packs.

So, without further ado, here are my ideas as to what the future expansion packs could unfold:

1. University/College Life

We got it in the Sims 3 and for some reason, it was a big hit. Going to school IRL sucks, but when you're a Sim? It's the best. Now the Sims 3 didn't have all the best graphics compared to the Sims 4.

So imagine how much more stunning the gameplay will be with better graphics, probably more things to do in the expansion pack like; choosing a college, after-school activities, visiting home while on term, maybe even breaks? Truly the sky is the limit with what they can do.

2. Supernatural

We got a little taste of this with Vampires and the Alien Sims you can make - but what about all the others? Think about it. With how detailed the Vampire Sims are, what about the others? Ghosts? Werewolves? Witches? Imagine a town dedicated to all Supernatural life.

There could possibly be jobs for these creatures, new traits, clothes, and styles even? Yes, it probably wouldn't be much different compared to the Sims 3, but I would imagine it would be much like the Vampire Sims in a sense of traits, goals, etc.

3. Family Life

Parenting is already a big skill that a Sim can have. It seems like the Sims 4 really bumped up how involved parents are with their children (i.e children asking for advice, parents raising them more in-depth, discipline, etc).

Well, what if the parents got even MORE involved? What if parents could home school their children? The essence of family, in general, could be there more - holidays, family trips, etc. I think while immediate family (ones in the household) are very together, what if cousins, aunts, uncles, etc got to be together more?

4. Farm Life

Running a business is not new for the Sims. We saw this in the Sims 3 with the resort and in Sims 4 with the vet clinics, restaurants, and stores. But what if we went even further and did something with a farm? You would build you sims, place them in a world that is probably centered around your farm, and raise animals, sell the dairy, meat, etc, and live life.

While it probably wouldn't be the most in-depth expansion pack, probably being only a game pack, it would still be extremely fun for all the farmbodies at heart. Plus, there is city life, why can't there be country living?

5. Pirates/Renn Life

For me, Sims Medieval was the best. I could go off onto an entirely different rant based on just that game but I won't. Imagine a stuff pack where it was a Renaissance Faire in the summer. You could dress up, go to a world that was somewhat like Granite Falls and experience a joust, jesters, eat turkey legs, etc. While this probably wouldn't be too interesting for everyone, it would still be a great add on for summer life.

6. Jobs

Yes, we already have Get to Work, but imagine if we had more jobs...more so more jobs that we can interact with. In the Sims 3 there were so many jobs that you could have. It almost seems silly that the Sims 4 doesn't have nearly the same amount that the Sims 3 did.

I would love to see the Tattoo Artist be brought back or even a smaller job like Playground Monitor. While not all the jobs HAVE to be interactive, it would still be cool to have more interactive jobs.

10 Pieces Of Advice From My Parents That Have Helped Me Survive This Thing Called Life

I don't like admitting that they're right, but they've helped me through more than they'll ever know.


As I've entered my 20s and have made it halfway through college, I've learned that life can be hard and challenging at times. Like many kids, when I was growing up, I could care less about what my parent's advice or opinions were. Nine times out of ten, I would do the complete opposite of what they said. Once I got older and actually started listening to their advice and put it into perceptive, I learned that they're right more often than I'd like to admit.

1. Don't take things for granted

I've learned to cherish what I have because I might not always have it. It's easy to take life itself and many things it involves for granted. They've taught me to take a step back from this crazy life sometimes and be grateful for all that I have.

2. Don't be afraid to put your heart on your sleeve


My parents have taught me that if you feel something, don't be afraid to say it or embrace it. If you love someone, then tell them. Don't be afraid to put your heart out there just because you might get hurt.

3. Be vulnerable

risk taking

In life, in relationships, in your work. Take risks, get shot down, and then try again. Being vulnerable is scary yet so powerful.

4. You can never have too many shoes


Otherwise known as it's okay to treat yourself. Life is hard, so take care of you. If that means going on a shopping spree every once in a while, then so be it.

5. You're going to be okay

Whatever it is you're going through, you're going through it and you're going to come out on the other side. It may seem horrible now, but you'll learn from it and be okay in the end.

6. You have to have friends in life


It's important to have people to lean on, especially on your bad days, and to celebrate with on your good ones. You can't just have you or a significant other to rely on.

7. Never be afraid to share your opinion

Don't be afraid to put your thoughts and opinions out there because they might be wrong. They could have a huge impact on someone or something.

8. Don't stress over things you have no control over

don't stress

Everyone is on their own path, which means everything will work out the way it's supposed to, even if it doesn't make sense right now. Again, you're going to be okay.

9. Happy, healthy, wealthy, wise


My dad always says if you tell yourself every day that you're happy with yourself or your life, you're healthy and strong, you're wealthy in love and surrounded by great people, and you're knowledgable or wise, then you can achieve anything in life.

10.  S*** or get off the pot

pitch perfect

My all-time favorite piece of advice. Making decisions can be hard and scary, especially if the outcome could be getting hurt in the end. So, you either make a decision and roll with it no matter the outcome or you walk away.

Thanks, mom and dad for always being a phone call away when I need it! Just know that your advice and words of wisdom don't go unnoticed. For others, your parents have been on this planet much longer than you have and most likely experienced the same situations that you're dealing with. They don't have all the answers, but they are there to help.
