So What’s Up With the Lack of Updates?

As may have been noticed, I haven’t posted here since November ended even though NaNoWriMo is done.¬† By the way, I won! ūüėÄ

Anyways, I’ve been feeling rather ambivalent towards Elena’s challenge.¬† Not only that, but I’ve had homework, been watching TV, and I’ve started yet another new legacy – which is only a game right now, but I’ve been thinking of using the pictures from it to make a story legacy.¬† Also, I’ve been working on my dad’s Christmas present, which is very time-consuming.¬† His has the most hours put into it of all my family’s presents this year, XD.

Finals are ocming up for me, then I have winter break.¬† But I’m just not sure if I want to do the challenge on top of playing my legacy.¬† I’ve really, really been wanting to experiment with Supernatural which I just don’t have the freedom to do when I also have to churn out kids for Elena.¬† With the new game-only legacy I’ve been playing, not only do I get to play with Supernatural abilities (which are quite amusing, lol), but I’ve been able to have a horse birth, which I’d never done before!¬† It’s been so much fun just to relax and not worry about making a ton of kids.¬† Not to say that there’s no kids in the game, as it is a legacy, lol.

When I play Elena’s challenge, I’m honestly more interested in getting fun screenies and writing the commentary for them than I am in actually playing the game.¬† I spend hours just thinking about what I’d like to have happen next rather than actually playing.¬† So…yeah, I don’t know what I’m going to do with this.¬† I’m too fond of Elena and¬†some of her descendants¬†to let go of them, but at the same time I don’t feel like this is the best and most fun way to play the Sims.

Maybe I’ll change my mind when winter break starts and my dad’s present is done.¬† I’ve been known to do that, XD.¬† So don’t take this as a definite ‘this challenge is over’, or a definite hiatus.¬† It’s just a notice to let you know why I haven’t updated.
