I Quit

I decided to stop documenting my Sims story for two reasons. The first being that you didn’t really seem that interested in following along. The second being that I technically failed the Challenge. In the 4th generation, the parents were pretty old when they started having children. When the parent’s died, all three children were too young to care for themselves and they were taken away. I think that is the first time I’ve ever seen The Sims say “Game Over”.

I have kept playing however. When the Heir died, one of his brothers was still alive so I switched over to him and am currently on the 6th generation since starting the Sims 4 Challenge. But enough about the game…

I have also reached that point in the year where I want to quit everything in real life as well. I want to quit my job, quit my relationship, quit living on the other side of the country from my family. Is that normal? I’m so stressed out and I just don’t know what to do. I keep forming pros and cons lists in my head but I can’t make any sort of decision. I had given myself a deadline of my birthday (which is coming up in a couple weeks) to figure things out but I don’t think I will make any changes.

The biggest reason I hesitate to make any sort of decision is money. If I didn’t need money to live, to retire, to move, etc. I think the decision would be easy. If I made the wrong decision, I could easily change my mind again if money didn’t matter.

But then I say to myself, okay so what decision would you choose if money really DIDN’T matter? That should be the option you pick. That is the option that will truly make you happy. I wish it was just that simple…

Chill Weekend

We had a pretty low-key weekend here. Saturday I spent all morning in bed which I haven’t done in probably a few years. I used to do that at my boyfriend’s house all the time watching TV but not since we moved in together. I miss having cable television so you could just flip to random shows.

Sunday was my boyfriend’s birthday. I spent some time in the morning driving around picking up a few last minute presents and his cake. Again we didn’t really do a whole lot throughout the day. In the evening we went out to a star party which is where they have telescopes set up so you can look at the stars. Unfortunately it was cloudy so we couldn’t see anything. But we did see a fox and some bison which made the hour drive each way a little less of a disappointment.

Today is labor day which is a holiday in Canada. I spent the morning updating my website Drag Him Out. After having a conversation with my mom, I decided to book my plane ticket home this afternoon. It was about $70 cheaper today than it was yesterday so instead of waiting to see if a cheaper price was going to come along, I decided to just do it. I hope I made the right choice. I will continue to monitor the price just to torture myself.
