Sometimes, I just snap random pictures.

And I am in love with the Hudson filter from Instagram.

For those that have been following me for a long time, you guys know that I own the Sims 2 game and I talk about it once in a while around LJ (less DW as it's newer but still!) but I barely post about game play or pictures and such.

To be honest, in all the years I've owned the game, I spent most of my time downloading custom content, organizing the downloads folder, building and decorating and creating sims than actually playing at all. Oh, and I have redone my downloads folder about a billionth time, too. And I am in the process of doing just that again *laughs shyly*

Back in the day, let's say maybe 4 years ago, I decorated two neighborhoods completely and was extremely proud of them. I also recreated a neighborhood from another player... attempted too anyway, considering I was basing it on her on pictures and many things were not pictured or blurred or half hidden and I believe I did a good job anyway. Most of the pictures are broken now but I managed to save as many as I could to my computer (yeah, I know, I shouldn't but... I am not gonna get arrested for that, right. Also, I don't think she's online and playing anymore anyway!).

Sadly, I had an issue with the game somehow that made me lose all of them a while back (that required reinstalling one expansion. I actually lost all the neighborhoods and sims I had created actually and so, I would have to start from scratch again. I'm not sure I want to anymore... maybe... I mean, I spent so much time on them and to lose them the way I did... *sigh*

And so, I got these neighborhoods and houses I was extremely proud of and... all gone...

See the neighborhoods (2 of the 3) I am talking about and some extras )

I cannot wait to be done with re-arranging the downloads folder. Hopefully, it's gonna be the last time I do it. Adding to it, sure, that will happen, but re-doing it... hoping I never have to anymore.
The other day, I started watching 13 Reasons Why and hadn't it been from work and every day life, I would have been done with it since I am basically marathoning it. I am halfway through it... Jessica's party.

I don't know how many of you did watch or are planning on watching it but so far, I like it. I do have an idea on certain things that are gonna happen and, to tell the truth, I was surfing for something else and got spoiled a little bit on something, which makes me a little bit mad but... you know... nobody did spoil me; it's all me *laughs*

Anyway, like I said, I like it so far. Intriguing.

I've seen this pop up a few places and I thought it was interesting.

Let me explain what I'm talking about.

LJ/DW has this Interests section in the profile, and I think that's awesome but what I have seen here and there (not on DW or lj necessarily) is people post a jumble of pics of things they like and such.

Example: liking dogs, exercises, music,... they would have pics of each.

I have been thinking about doing that for myself. I have no clue if I'd only make a post about that or include it in my profiles or both but I like that idea.

Surely I'm not the only one that has seen that?
I was searching for something totally random online while killing time at work and I stumbled upon a gif of a movie I haven't seen in ages and that I really like.

Yep, Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.

It is not the greatest movie of all time but what a lovely movie none the less.

I wonder where the actors are now and what they look like, too.
Went to the thrift store yesterday after work with the craving to buy clothes.

I always check out the books section in hopes of finding good ones and the last one in the Mortal Instruments series.

Low and behold, after having searched for 5 months+, I found the last chapter in the series yesterday. In the right edition, too.

I had talked about wanting the entire series to be in the same edition exactly even though the story inside is all the same no matter what book edition it is. It completes the series better that way in my opinion.

Finally, my search is over!! Woohoo!! It was so hard to get my hands on that book for some reason. 2 different Value Villages, too.

Now I just need to pick book 4 back up to continue reading it.


What was your first kiss? ;) by [personal profile] penderies on lj.

OMG! That was a long time ago. Obviously. Hum... if memory serves me right, I got my first kiss pretty late. Like I was in my twenties. No kidding. I've been a late bloomer for a tons of things. I believe this was my first.

I was working at Sears, the parts and services department. With JP and a bunch of other people, of course. No, it wasn't JP though I developed a crush on him at the time. His name was M and he was close friends with JP and one day he asked me out. Not as blatant as that but we ended up going out a few times and we kissed.

I remember a specific day where we did a motorcycle ride. His. We ended up at a park in Longueuil, beautiful sunny day and the only thing really on our minds was what was happening in NY. Yep, the date was September 11th, 2001.

Okay, no we didn't kiss that day but it was when we had started going out with each other. I don't quite remember exactly when it was that we first kissed but I remember it was with him. I have to admit I was a bit confused and didn't know how to act around him. Especially because I had told him I had a crush on JP... you know... I did get to meet his mom and all and I remember being nervous. Oh, that's it. I think it was the day I met his mom that we kissed that first time. Hey, it was in 2001, give me a break okay?! *laughs*

My crush on JP never let on all the while working at Sears. My feelings never developed for M. M was actually crushed that I couldn't return his feelings but then he moved on and fell for another girl working there and they were a couple for many years... until she played him (don't have the whole story there but it's JP who told me since he and M talk still).

Anyway, yeah... that was it. Nothing too special about it. And I wasn't all that young or anything. I didn't have any butterflies in the stomach or anything. Nothing all that exciting come to think of it. Nothing to go to mommy or your friends and be excited about, really.

So, that's it for questions received. Please, feel free to ask me some. Anything, as many as you want :)
