Wishing you an amazing 2023!

The new year is upon us and I would like to take the time and write a blog post to kind of recap this year. Where did the time go? It feels to me that this year went by even faster than the previous year, or is it just me? But, it was a great year nonetheless. I feel that I have changed a lot this year. Sure, there were moments where I needed to detach myself a little bit, but I was aware of my thoughts and feelings, and I got through it.

I have been streaming on Twitch a lot this year and I want to take the moment to acknowledge my gratitude for all the love and support I have received from everyone who came across my channel. Especially to those who have stuck around the entire year. Thank you for making me feel loved and appreciated. In a way a lot of you have dragged me out of my shell more and you all made me feel I can be my silly self and not care about what others think. I gained much more confidence and I am appreciate that a lot. I feel that this can only lead to better and bigger things, and I thank you for that. I am looking forward to start streams again in the new year!

The next thing I am grateful for, or happy about rather, is being back in contact with my mother. Mom and I had a falling out about four years ago and we had no contact whatsoever. Until my dad was hospitalized earlier this year and that brought us back together again. And it has been great since then. Family is back together! My mom is currently 68 and my dad is 73, and I hope to have them around for a very long time.

Since recently I have been posting a shit load of reels/short form videos on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube. They are relatable reels that are mostly cringey, but I am having so much fun with it! Now, I am not the kind of person who focuses on numbers, but they have been doing pretty good on YouTube. On Instagram I even got over 10k views on a few of them. But still, they’re just numbers. I am just having a blast making them, and that’s all that matters. But who knows, maybe more of them will blow up in the new year! That would be amazing. I will continue posting them, even tho many are ridiculously cringey. But that’s the fun part. I don’t take myself too seriously. That’s also another thing I learned to embrace more, which is poking fun at myself, while pretending I am a big deal, which I am clearly not. I don’t know how to explain it. I’m a weirdo. I guess that’s what not taking yourself seriously is.

I don’t have any resolutions for the new year. I actually find having resolutions weird, but that’s just me. Why wait and change something in your life when it’s the new year, when you can make changes right now? It never makes sense to me why people are like “new year, new me” bull shit. The only thing I wish is that only good vibes and good things will happen. And that is all. Of course I wish that for everyone.

So, yeah! That’s all for now, folks! I hope you all have a great New Year’s Eve! Stay safe and I will definitely see you again in 2023! Happy new year!

Merry Christmas

It’s been a while since I have posted a new blog post. It’s Christmas today and it feels like it’s a good time to post a little something. First of all, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. May it be filled with lots of joy and laughter. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas at all I wish you a fabulous weekend.

I hope everyone is doing well. I am doing pretty good. I am currently taking a little break from streaming on Twitch. Mainly to just decompress a little bit and having some ‘me’ time, which is always a good thing. I will be back streaming on January 6th.

Christmas isn’t really a holiday I celebrate like most people. As an introvert I usually prefer to just do nothing and be by myself. And that’s what I am doing again this year. I will spend some quality time with the folks the day after Christmas, but that’s it. I don’t really care for anything fancy or be around too much people. It’s not just for me. I used to feel weird about that, mainly because when you tell other people that you prefer to be along they gave you weird looks or they wonder why. But for the last year or two I really don’t care about what other people think about it. Just let me do what I want. I enjoy being by myself and make a nice dinner and treat myself to things I love. It’s nice! And speaking of treating myself, I have been spoiling myself a lot this holiday season.

Since recently I started collecting Funko Pops from The Walking Dead, since that’s my favorite show. And I love it! I currently have eight Funko Pops and I cannot wait to collect more from The Walking Dead. I also got three of The Golden Girls, since that’s also one of my favorite shows, every since I was young! I’d love to have all the Funko Pops from my favorite shows! I definitely want to have ones from Friends as well! So yeah, this holiday season I have been spoiling myself with pops. And I love it!

Speaking of Friends, I treated myself and got the Central Perk Lego set! I actually have been spending hours last night building it. And it’s super cool! I bought this display cabinet from Ikea where I will display all of my Funko Pops and the Lego build of Central Perk will be added to it as well. Super fun!

I also got myself a new Razer gaming mouse for my PC and some new clothes as well.

So, yeah! The year is almost over and I still cannot believe how fast this year went. It’s crazy! I have nothing planned for New Years Eve. It will be the same, just being by myself, have some bubblies and couch hang. Just heavenly. And I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the new year. It’s safe to say that mentally I feel pretty good again. I feel more secure and confident about myself and I really hope that will be useful when it comes to new things. But I think I will post a separate blog post before the new year starts.

But, anyway! That’s all I have to report. I just wanted to wish every happy holidays. I know that the holidays are rough for a lot of people and I just want to say that my thoughts are with you. And that I am sending you lots of strength to get through it.

Thanks, everyone! I will be back again real soon!

July/August Selfie Dump!

Oh, hello! It’s been a while since I have posted anything on my fabulous blog. I can’t believe it is September already! How has everyone been? I’ve been good. Had some ups and downs every now and then, but that’s life, I suppose. When you have those moments where you feel like you’re in a rut and feeling unhappy you just gotta face it and work your way through it, isn’t it?

Not so long ago I reached a point where I felt rather stuck again and luckily I was able to acknowledge that and I had a couple of sessions with my therapist, which was great and liberating. I feel good again! But I don’t feel like going into the details of that now. I just wanted to to drop a little selfie bomb on my blog from the past couple months. So, here you go! I hope you are all doing amazing!

The Sims 4

The Donnelly

This is The Donnelly. A modern little suburban house I built in The Sims 4! This house has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, an office and a garage. I built this house on a 20×15 lot in Oasis Springs. You can download this house from The Sims 4 Gallery. My EA ID is ‘itsleander’, or you can click the download button below. Let me know what you think of this house. I would love to hear your feedback.

Here are some screenshots of the house. The speed build video is below!

Time for another Birthday Stream

It’s my birthday month again and I have planned another 12-hour birthday stream on Twitch! Just like last year I will have a fun and chill stream where I will play games and hang out with some of you all, and celebrate my 42nd birthday! Goodness gracious, another year older and another year closer to death. My birthday stream will be on my actual birthday again, Sunday, July 17th from 11AM (CET) until 11PM (CET). I don’t know what I will do exactly. Maybe play some Sims and then perhaps some community games! We’ll chit-chat, maybe have some guests on voice-chat as well. Maybe there will be some drinking. We will see. There’s nothing better I would like than hanging out with my little community. It will be a lot of fun! Because I am fun!

So, mark your calendars and I hope to see you there! Be sure to follow my channel on Twitch if you aren’t already.

The Sims 4

Eastland Duplex

What’s up? I had loads of fun building this duplex house in The Sims 4. It’s got this Dutch suburban style and I love it! For this build I only furnished the left house. I kept the right side of the house empty, however I did mirrored the floorplan. Download this house from The Sims 4 Gallery below. Let me know what you think of this build. I would love to hear your feed back.

Here are some screenshots of the build. The speed build video is below.

The Sims 4

The Granary

I got a new gaming PC and it is a freakin’ beast! It’s been a while since I have done a new speed build video for my YouTube channel, but here is my first house that I built in The Sims 4, on my new computer. This is a modern two bedroom and three bathroom house. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Click the download link below to grab this build from The Sims 4 Gallery!

Here are screenshots of the build.
