Marina Day 16

So far, you have decided that Marina should pursue the maximum level of gardening achievement and become friends with Travis and Summer. You had her wait on a relationship with Travis. She is allowed to pursue three of her own whims per day, regardless as to whether or not that match our goals for her. She spends time cooking one decent meal a day, but the rest she just grabs something quick like yogurt or cereal.  She is currently saving up to purchase a computer. You recently decided she should give it a try with Travis. Thanks to a weird flux in the space time continuum (a repercussion of the Bachelor challenge), Travis has aged significantly. You have decided Marina should not pursue a relationship with anyone for the time being.

Promotion

Today had a little bit of excitement! It started off normal- woke up, got dressed, had a quick breakfast, went to work, worked all day, but just as I was about to leave, my boss called me into her office to give me a promotion! I am now a Freelance Article Writer!

Other than the promotion, though, I don’t have much to tell.

I made a Caprese salad for dinner.

03-22-15_2-23 PM

Watched some TV while I ate.

03-22-15_2-23 PM-2

By the time I was done with dinner it was dark, so I stayed inside until bed.

03-22-15_2-20 PM

And read a book.

Today was just another average day.

02-11-15_7-25 PM

I went to make breakfast when I realized both the fridge and oven were broken. Sigh. I don’t have the time or skill to repair them (and I certainly don’t want to try that alone) so I paid to replace both of them. Good thing I had money saved up for that computer.

02-11-15_7-25 PM-2

My table was too messy, so I ate at my future computer desk. I then went to work.

02-11-15_7-27 PM

My job performance was quite excellent today. I think I am going to get a promotion soon. Another blogger accused me of plagiarism. I chose to ignore them- “don’t feed the trolls” sort of thing and that seemed to work out well.

02-11-15_7-28 PM-2

When I got home, I took care of all my plants.

02-11-15_7-29 PM

And then jumped in the pool for a quick swim before bed.

Day 15

Hey! I have today off! That was totally unexpected.

02-11-15_7-40 PM-2

After showering and getting dressed, I cleaned up the house a bit.

02-11-15_7-42 PM

Then I tried making my first “gourmet” recipe- a fruit and yogurt parfait. Delicious!

02-11-15_7-45 PM

I did some gardening for a while.

02-11-15_7-46 PM

But my plants were still pretty good from yesterday, and I was feeling sad and lonely. I called the sadness hotline, they always cheer me up.

02-11-15_7-48 PM

In the late afternoon, Summer came over. I almost didn’t recognize her. She transitioned from adult to elder! I didn’t realize she was in the adult stage! I swear she was younger. Maybe I am aging slower than everyone else?! This means Travis is older now too. I better start spending more time with them. Maybe I work too much. I think this has made my loneliness even worse.

Another day off! How exciting! I woke up early this morning- well, for me anyway! I finished reading the book I was working on, and then headed to the library to practice my writing skills!

02-06-15_9-31 AM

I spent most of my day at library working on my writing and chatting with the people near me. Ronnie and I chatted for while about all sorts of things.

02-06-15_9-32 AM-2 02-06-15_9-32 AM-3

And I also chatted with a couple of women, they didn’t stay long so I don’t remember their names. Oops! I feel bad, they seemed nice!

02-06-15_9-34 AM

After the library, I went back home to grab a quick bite and freshen up. Then I went next store to see if Travis was home.

02-06-15_9-42 AM

 

He was! As usually, we spent the entire evening chatting.

02-06-15_9-43 AM  02-06-15_9-43 AM-3 02-06-15_9-44 AM 02-06-15_9-44 AM-2

 

We told jokes, talked about the neighborhood, and chatted about our interests.

02-06-15_9-45 AM

And guess what?! We decided, officially, that we are best friends! We hugged on it!

02-06-15_9-45 AM-3

Then we took a photo together.

 

02-06-15_9-46 AM

Chatted some more.

02-06-15_9-46 AM-3

 

 

And finally when it was time to leave, another hug!

Day 11

Well, today was just like any other day! I worked from 11am to 7pm as a blogger. I did some laps in the pool after I got home from work.

02-04-15_9-23 AM 02-04-15_9-24 AM

 

After swimming, I took care of my plants before going inside to eat and go to bed.

Day 12

02-04-15_1-09 PM

 

I had today off!!! This morning I picked out a cute new outfit in celebration of Valentine’s Day!!! I then went outside to garden, garden, garden.

02-04-15_1-12 PM

I gardened for most of the day- watering, weeding, fertilizing, and harvesting.

02-04-15_1-13 PM

I helped two of my plants “evolve” which is a term we use in the Sims world for a process by which we help the plants transform into new, better plants. Sort of like how we Sims undergo age transitions.

02-04-15_1-15 PM

I was getting ready to make dinner when my very good friend Travis showed up at my door. I was very glad to see him, he’s charming and confident while still being a total geek.

02-04-15_1-16 PM

We chatted for a LONG time. After he left, I finished cooking dinner, spent some time reading for work, and headed off to bed.

I’ve almost saved up enough money to purchase a computer, but I need just a couple more days of working. Guess what? I also have tomorrow off!

01-22-15_8-35 AM

Today was my day off. The first thing I did was tidy up the house- the dirty dishes had been building up.

01-22-15_8-37 AM

After my shower, I mopped up the bathroom floor- a leaky faucet had caused quite the mess.

01-22-15_8-37 AM-3

Then it was out the door for me- whew, my garden really needs some TLC!

01-22-15_8-38 AM 01-22-15_8-38 AM-3 01-22-15_8-38 AM-4 01-22-15_8-38 AM-5

I spent the rest of the day weeding, watering, and harvesting.

01-22-15_8-40 AM

For dinner, I tried making a taco casserole- it came out pretty good.

01-22-15_8-41 AM

01-22-15_8-41 AM-2

After dinner, I caught up on some reading.

01-22-15_8-42 AM

Before bed I was feeling a little lonely, so I spent some time talking to my plants. Sure, they don’t answer back, but I think they like the company!

Also, one extra note here. It seems Marina lost her voice last post! The post was not in the first person, and I do apologize for that. I try to be consistent with these things, but it had been a long time since I had played and posted.

12-23-14_9-42 PM

Today was better than average. I started off my morning with some cereal while watching television. I was in the mood for sports this morning. I like the energy in sports.

12-23-14_9-44 PM

I watered a few plants, and then went to work.

SimsMarinaBlogger

At work, I received a promotion. Fantastic news (especially since I haven’t really been trying to get a promotion, honestly). I suppose I should start improving my writing now. 🙂

12-23-14_9-49 PM

I took a quick dip in the pool after I got home from work. Swimming is so much fun.

12-23-14_9-50 PM

For dinner I made a delicious, if I do say so myself, grilled cheese sandwich.

Then it was off to bed! I have tomorrow off!

Willowcreek: Day 8

Day 8 was pretty standard…work & gardening.

12-02-14_7-51 PM

When Marina came home she took a short swim in the pool- she likes enjoying the sunshine.

12-02-14_7-51 PM-2

Next she made some mac n’ cheese for dinner.

12-02-14_7-53 PM

And as usual, a bit of gardening.

12-02-14_7-54 PM

She’s got a lot of plants to take care of.
