I thought about getting back into The Sims, but then I probably wouldn't get anything else done LOL.  I used to play that game for hours without even realizing how much time had passed.

Though when my friends outside the fandom ask how I've been spending my time, I should probably just say I've playing The Sims.  That's basically the same as writing fanfic, right?  You create characters and then mess up your lives... and if you're like me, you torture and kill them for fun LOL.  My favorite method was creating a tiny, enclosed room, putting a fireworks launcher inside, and then removing the door before making my Sim light it.  I was virtual pyromaniac.

I just downloaded that last night during virtual happy hour LOL.  I haven't played it yet though.  I was into the original Trivia Crack for awhile when it was super popular.

So Illinois officially cancelled school for the rest of the year.  It's sad to think I won't be going back until (hopefully) August and probably won't see my students in person until they're fifth-graders.  There are certain aspects of online learning that I enjoy - mainly the fact that I can stay in my pajamas and drink coffee, eat breakfast, and use the bathroom whenever I want to - but otherwise it's all the worst parts of teaching, like planning and constantly communicating with parents, without any of the fun parts.

These kids are missing out on so many fun experiences that happen near the end of the school year that just can't be replicated virtually, and that makes me sad.  At least mine will have two more years at our school, so unless they move over the summer, we'll see each other again next year.  But I feel for the kids who are graduating or moving on to another school next year and may not see their teachers or classmates again.

Thatís unfortunate. I saw that announcement on the news and thought of you. Iím glad I havenít had to deal with online teaching, but at least itís a way to still connect with your kids. I really feel bad for the seniors. I know back in Bethlehem, they are thinking of doing a drive thru ceremony. Pre taping speeches by the valedictorian and principal and then doing a slide show of the seniors at the local drive thru theater. They still havenít made the call for Up here.

Thanks for unlocking!

A drive-thru ceremony sounds like a great idea.  I know some of the high schools and colleges around here have talked about doing virtual ceremonies or rescheduling proms and graduations for later in the summer.  I guess that will depend on what things are like this summer.

I sim, basically to torture them. A friend sent me links to some mods though and you can install it so your sims have to deal with a zombie apocalypse (biting and killing zombies included), a possessed child, and a serial killer mod lmao where they can come in randomly and you fight to survive. Or you can be the killer. So ya know, Sims have evolved thanks to tech savvy fans LOL.
