Sims Shenanigans: A Compilation of Tweets about Weird Things that Have Happened in My Sims 3 Games

I'm taking a brief break from books today to talk about something else I love nearly as much: The Sims! The Sims 3, to be precise, which is my personal favorite version. I sometimes tweet about the weird things my sims get up to, but I know not everyone follows me on Twitter. Even if you do, it's easy to miss tweets.

Update: Life and Books (Apr 2019)

Another month has gone by, and I don't want to talk about "real life" at the moment because it's not going great, so we'll just stick to positives in this update! I do have a favor to ask though. If you ever shop Amazon US, I would appreciate it so much if you could use my affiliate links! They're all over my blog, including this post (the book covers).
