Hello! It’s been nearly a month since I last updated the Scatterdays. This feels like a long time to go without an update in the post-grad school era of the legacy, even though I’ve gone six months without updates in the past, so I feel obligated to tell you guys what I’ve been up to.
Things What I’ve Been Doing Since Mid-May:
- Working the night shift. Yup, my shift at work changed! Now I’m up all night and sleeping all day (well, usually until about 3-4 pm) and time has no meaning anymore. It’s put me in a weird mood that isn’t conducive to legacy writing. I work longer shifts so I only work four days a week, but as a result I’ve been trying to spend my days off and my waking hours with my boyfriend and my friends, so that my social life doesn’t completely suffer. It’s been a weird transition, and hopefully I’ll be on some sort of a regular schedule soon.
- Speaking of my social life not completely suffering, my friend got married last Saturday! It was a lot of fun and a busy few days, especially since we had to travel a little bit and my sleep schedule was even more destroyed because I had to be on a normal people schedule and not a batshit night shift schedule. Also, the internet at our hotel sucked so even if I had time to work on a legacy update, it would have been eaten by the bad internets demons.
- Spending time outside and in the sun, covered with a healthy dose of sunscreen because I am the palest person ever. I know I could update the legacy while sitting outside, and I plan to do that at some point! Usually when I’m sitting outside now I’ve just woken up and my brain isn’t functioning. (Also, please don’t tell a pale person they need to get a tan. According to my boyfriend’s family I am a disgusting freak who needs a tan for some reason? They wouldn’t fucking shut up about it. I am incapable of tanning unless I have a serious sunburn first, and serious sunburns = skin cancer!!!!1!! which I am desperately trying to avoid.)
- Reading books! Yeah, I haven’t been able to read books for funsies since…2008, which was pre-university for me, so I’ve been doing a lot of that. Reading on my patio in the sun while covered in sunscreen to maintain my ghostly paleness is very nice.
Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. No legacy hiatuses or anything here, just a lot of things and adjustments happening. Next weekend my boyfriend will be out of town on a couple of my days off, so I’m planning on an update then! Also oh shit I have so many comments to respond to! Sims blogging is hard work! Thanks for sticking around though, and do know I appreciate every single like and comment even if I can’t respond in a timely fashion. 🙂 ❤
