So, I have been putting this off for a long time, but this afternoon I was having a little chit-chat with my good friend Steve and I asked him if I should have a separate Instagram account where I post and share all of my Sims related content. And his answer was ‘yes’! So, earlier today I went ahead and created my secondary Instagram account, or should I say ‘Simstagram’ account? It’s my second one, because I already have my personal Instagram for the last couple of years.
Since my Twitch and YouTube channel is branded as ITSLEANDERTV, I have decided to use the same name for my second Instagram. On that account I will post screenshots of my builds, my favorite custom content, let’s plays and anything else I create/build that is Sims related.
So, if you’re into The Sims, click the ‘Simstagram’ button below to go straight to my new Sims-only Instagram account and give me a follow!
We’re getting closer to my four year anniversary on Twitch. I said I wasn’t gonna do it, but after giving it some thought I have decided to just go for it! I am gonna have another 12 hour stream, to celebrate the four years of streaming on Twitch! I have done it a few times in the past and it always was a blast!
My 12 hour stream will happen on Saturday, the 19th of February of 2022, at 12PM (CET). I will do some building in The Sims 4, do some House Flipper, Genshin Impact and who knows what else! To tell you the truth I am already excited to hang out with my fellow like minded people for 12 hours! So, you better stop by and say ‘hi’!
So, mark your calendars, because it’s going to fun! Because I am fun! At least I like to think that I am. Am I fun? I hope you can make it. Four years of streaming is quite an achievement, isn’t it?
If you aren’t following me yet on Twitch, what is your life? I’m just kidding. But no, seriously! Give me a follow. I currently stream every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8PM (CET).
First of all, I hope everyone had a great Christmas. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a great weekend. I managed to survive another Christmas all by myself. I treated myself and cheated with lots of food and I drank lots of Rosé. It’s safe to say that I was pretty tipsy on Christmas Eve and the evening n Christmas Day. But it was nice. It was chill. It was something I felt like doing, so what are you gonna do about it. Anyway…
The year of 2021 is coming to an end it’s time for another end of the year blog, looking back on the things that has happened this year. Which is not a whole lot. While the whole world is pretty much in chaos, I have managed to remain centered, as much as I can be and just do my own thing, basically. I have been pretty consistent with streaming three evenings on Twitch, which is always a blast. Hanging out with like minded people, having a shit load of laughs. And meeting new people along the way. I am grateful to have my own little community, or shall I say ‘tribe’, with people who accept me for who I am. A silly, dirty minded, dork that is Leander. I am super grateful for all the love I have received from so many people around the world.
Earlier this year I took a break from creating The Sims 4 speed build video for my YouTube channel, but since a few months now I have been recording and uploading videos again. Not as much as I used to, but I am trying my best to upload at least one video per week. So far it’s going well, so hopefully I can stick to it. We’ll see how that goes.
With streaming on Twitch and uploading videos to YouTube I have been struggling a little bit with growing. I haven’t been doing a great job with throwing myself out there, if that makes any sense. Like networking and ‘marketing’ myself. I put out the usual ‘I am live on Twitch’ and ‘I uploaded a new video’ tweets, but that doesn’t really do the trick. I need to try to engage more I think, right? It’s so hard! I branded myself D-List, because I have been streaming for almost four years now, and during the four years I have seen so many people come and many people go. I think it’s safe to say that I have two handful of people have stuck by me since the beginning. Of course I am very grateful for that (you know who you are!). I really need to try and come up with some sort of networking strategy, or something, and broaden my audience. If anyone of you who reads this have any suggestions, I am all ears! In the mean time I’ll just stay D-List. I am embracing it, tho!
I don’t really have resolutions for the new year. I don’t believe in resolutions. They are lame! Why wait until the new year to make changes in your life? That’s just my opinion. I have blogged about this previously. The only thing I hope the new year will give me is less setbacks and more things that are in my favor.
There are a few things I notice this year that have changed me. I feel more myself. More confident. More aware. I also take less shit from people. People who give me shit I either just ignore or just brush off. I also learned not to please everyone with what they want or need, or dealing with people who make me feel like I owe them something. Ugh, aren’t they the worst kind? Yeah, I can definitely say that I am more in control of my own needs. Thinking back to a few years ago it was not something I was able to do easily. I think part of it has to do with streaming on Twitch. I remember when I first started streaming. I was so nervous! If it wasn’t for the encouragement that I got from a few friends I met online I wouldn’t have considered streaming at all. And look at me now! That definitely made me feel more confident, more outspoken and more myself! (Thank you Aden!). There’s still a lot of work in progress, but I feel positive that I will get there, eventually.
Instead of being all alone at home on New Year’s Eve, I will be spending it with my dear friend Aden, also known as Devon Bumpkin. He will be streaming on his Twitch channel and yours truly will be joining him and his lovely community! I am looking forward to that. I am pretty sure booze will be involved, so that should be a treat!
Anyway, I think that’s enough of reflecting. Like I mentioned earlier, there’s not a whole lot to talk about. The year flew by super fast! Thank you for reading my blog! I will try to post more and consistently in the new year. Thank you to all the lovely people I came across on the Internet, mainly Twitch. I am grateful for all the love! I wish you all a great New Year’s Eve! Be safe and I will see you again in 2022! Happy new year!
Yesterday I turned 41 years young and it was an absolutely fun and amazing day. I went on to do a 12 hour stream on Twitch! To some this may be something that would makes you wonder how this is fun, but it was and that’s that. I had a blast hanging out with people. I did some building in The Sims 4, played some Geoguessr and I even had a few people on voice chat in Discord for the last hour of my stream. Time went pretty fast. I started at 12 o’clock noon and ended at midnight, precisely.
I even had a bit to drink during stream and eventually I was really feeling the buzz. But I had a lot of laughs and I was having a good time!
Playing Geoguessr on stream for the first time ever was a blast as well. I am definitely going to play that on stream more often. It’s a great game that allows you to train your brain and have a chill time with everyone in chat as well, who then has the option to help you out.
A want to give a huge thank you to everyone who tuned in to my 12 hour stream and for celebrating my birthday. I also want to thank for everyone’s generosity as well. I am always forever grateful for all the love and support I get on Twitch and I don’t take it for granted.
So, now I am another year old. Do I feel my age? Not at all. I still have the mindset of a 20-something year old. Sometimes. Physically however, I don’t know. But let’s not dwell on that, shall we?
It’s almost my birthday again! Where does the time go? I’ll be 41 years old, my goodness! Another year closer to death. Since I never do anything for my birthday I have planned to do a 12 hour stream on Twitch on Saturday, July 17, which is my actual birthday. I will start the stream at 12 o’clock noon and I will finish at midnight! I planned to do some building in The Sims 4, play some Geoguessr and maybe some other games. Basically just hang and chill with anyone who stops by in chat! It’s going to be fun! I may have a drink later or two as well before the stream ends.
I have made a flyer that I posted on Twitter and Instagram already, to just get the word out.
I am so weird. With that I mean I usually don’t want to do anything on my birthday. I don’t really care for it. And on the other hand I do crave a little attention/validation as well. Isn’t that weird? Anyone else ever feel like that? I’m such a complex human being. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s kinda nice to have the spotlight shine on you. But my inner introverted self is also like: “It’s nice not deal with the attention”. Meh!
But, anyway! Birthday stream! For 12 hours! Mark your calendar! I know I should have posted a blog about it earlier, but oh well! I hope you can make it, even if it’s just for a little bit. I would appreciate that a lot!

After almost three years of streaming on Twitch I can finally play games on my Playstation 4 Pro and stream it! It’s about damn time! I purchased the Elgato HD60 S which is a so called capture device that allows me to. I am a big noob when it comes to certain tech stuff and I had to do my research on how to stream though my PC while playing on my PS4. But it is actually quite simple.
First and foremost I am a streamer who builds houses in The Sims 4, which I currently do twice a week. And I have a variety day where I stream another game. I have played many other games on Twitch, but since my computer isn’t the strongest I often experience lots of lag, especially when a particular game is heavy in graphics and size.
So, this coming Friday I will stream the first game from my Playstation which will be Red Dead Redemption 2. I am very excited about it.
Follow me on Twitch if you aren’t already! I currently stream every Monday, Tuesday and Friday (variety day).
