Spoilers! A Life Update: Mental Health, Pups, (secret) Future Blog Plans

Hello readers and fellow bloggers,

I had a different post that was slotted for today, but unfortunately, I don’t have the spoons to write it. Rather than post something half-assed, I decided I could do a little life update. I used to do these monthly for my patrons when I had a Patreon so I thought it would be fun to revisit this format for the blog! Maybe I’ll do these more often… We’ll see haha.

On YouTube: Fairy Witch Estate (+ secret indoor garden room) // Sims 4 Speed Build

Hey y’all! Today I’m building a huge cottage estate for a pair of fairy witches and their children! This is the biggest build I have done to date. I played with the terrain tools a lot (probably too much), but I liked how it all turned out in the end.

No voice over for this speed build! I just didn’t have the spoons this week. I also didn’t put in ALL the footage because that would have been a several hour long video. So please enjoy some speed build snippets, gorgeous after shots, and some chill, dreamy music. 🙂

Despite loving the Sims 4 and regularly making Sims 4 YouTube videos, I have yet to write any pack reviews on the blog! Shame on me. I have plans for some future pack reviews that involve the older Sims 4 expansions, game packs, stuff packs and kits, but today I’m reviewing the latest expansion pack to hit EA’s website: Cottage Living.

#GeekDis: My 3 Favorite Characters with PTSD in Pop Culture (and What They Get Right)

#GeekDis: My 3 Favorite Characters with PTSD in Pop Culture (and What They Get Right)

As a part of GeekDis, a creative collaboration to shine a light on disability representation in pop culture, I am bringing you my three favorite characters with PTSD to talk about what the writers got right. PTSD, or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, is a mental health condition that is triggered by experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event. PTSD is not something that only affects soldiers. It can affect you; it can affect anyone. It affects me. I knew GeekDis was the perfect opportunity to finally talk about some of my favorite characters who also suffer from PTSD as well as discuss what the writers got right about PTSD and how it affects us.

Please note that I am not a professional, and I am simply basing this on what I have gone through as diagnosed by my therapist as well as the official definition and symptoms of PTSD. All experiences will vary, and no case of PTSD is the same as another.

Before I go any further, I want to give a special thank you to Heather at Just Geeking By who put together this amazing collaboration! GeekDis is a month long discussion on disability representation in pop culture. Make sure to follow the previous link to read all about GeekDis and how to participate and support this wonderful collaboration! Make sure to give Heather a follow on Twitter so you can see/read what everyone else is contributing as well!

Neither of us are the same as before. I learned to fly, but now I’m bound in chains. You have all the power in the world and the freedom to use it, but you choose to hold yourself down.
