My name is Laura, though in this online community I formerly went by ‘simeysmiler’ or just simey. I’m a student, born and raised in Ireland. I’m currently attending university, studying English and Maths as my degree subjects.
I’m not sure what exactly I want to do with my life. Seven years ago, I would have said I wanted to be a scientist; two years ago, my answer would have been a writer. Nowadays, I’m not even sure. I’m quickly re-writing this, as it had gotten quite outdated, and it seems I had been shrewd about my future self – I really don’t know what I’d like to do with my life.
This blog grew out of my long-term affection for the Sims franchise. A vast amount of my early teenage years was spent playing The Sims 2, chatting with fellow simmers over on the EA site and writing stories detailing the lives and woes of the virtual people that inhabited my computer. While I still Sim regularly, I look at the game as exactly that now: a game. The only writing I do for the Sims now is the captions on my Simblr posts.
Although I’m no longer going to be active here on WordPress, I’m still ‘around’ – so never be afraid to get in contact!
