Really, it's been a while since I've made an update about my life. Money issues follow as usual. I owe money to the bank and blahblahblah. Nothing new there. Work goes as usual. Some classes that are getting more fun and easier to manage.

The only new thing is that I got a new laptop in exchange for the old broken one. Finally. After two weeks since I requested it through legal means. Not only they gave me a new laptop, they said I could choose any of the ones they had in the store (a big department store) as long as it cost the same as my old one AT THE TIME I BOUGHT IT OVER ONE YEAR AGO. This means that the price I paid can today buy a MUCH better one since they are mostly only selling i3 proccessors or better. I got a shiny fast new computer one thousand times better than the one I had. I could not be happier. And I got a new warranty, which I'm sure I won't need to use since this is a well trusted brand (Lenovo).

I'm spending all my free time playing The Sims, but I guess you already know that given the constant update of my legacy. I download the Create a World tool and I'm learning how to use it and loving it. I've made a realy beautiful vulcanic tropical island with an extinct volcano which is all ready but still empty. I'm going to use it to start the Nothing is Free challenge.

Basically, in this challenge, you start in a totally empty world, without any lots whatsoever, not even a city hall or anything. You create a sim and you need to work on your skills and money (NO JOBS AVAILABLE) in order to BUY and BUILD the lots. For example, in order to have a Stadium you must have maxed the athletics skill and BUY the rabbithole yourself. Each sim can only buy one lot, so you'll need several generations to complete your city. A true challenge. I started it already because I got a little tired of my Cotrim Legacy after generation 3. Don't worry, there are still updates available and I will try to continue, but really, now the only thing I have to do is to get more and more money until I win the legacy and it's only a matter of time. There is no more challenge involved. I need difficult games.

So when I'm not playing the game, I'm testing my CAW creation and when I'm not testing, I'm creating it. Busy, busy.
