Evil facebook games!

Look, I am sure that there are more people than myself who get a whole box full of gaming requests on facebook. It annoys a lot of people beyond belief. It doesn’t annoy me at all as a matter of fact. Maybe I like it that my friend’s game and sending me request is proof of that. It’s an every changing cultural phenomenon that one would be an idiot to ignore its success. Facebook is massive and have so many uses, from planning party events, to stalking your X significant other.

I play games, mainly Simcity and Sims Social. My wonderful sister from another mister kept sending me requests so I’d figure, why not?

My thought process by then was “Why does she play this dumbed down version when she has the entire Sims collection for her PC?”

Well I got the answer to my question. It’s addictive and constantly evolving. EA creates new quests for your Sim to do to the point where it’s impossible to complete them all! You get to visit your friends and put a social label on the entire Sims franchise. You can also have them visit you which works out better if you have nicer items.

I think having to buy a game and then continuing to buy expansions for said game is ridiculous. Also, for a while I sold my bed and had to crash at miss Iries sims place. Forced slumber party anyone? Your sim can also create relationships and send requests for the Sims relationship to grow from good friends to inspired BFF’s!

So, my conclusion is that, facebook games are easy. They are a better waste of time then reading updates from people who do nothing other then complain.

The only thing that really annoys me is when the items you send out and request is malfunctioning.

 

 

New start

My last few months back in Sweden have been challenging to say the least! Not only did I have to re adapt to a culture that has become somewhat strange over the years, but to figure out what am I to do with my life?

What do I have to offer society?

I am sure that many of you ask yourself that every day. I have very focused set of skills that seems are not wanted here in Sweden. After trying to figure out a way to use my said skills, I realize that it’s impossible. I don’t know what Sweden has against my art style. It was fairly popular in America. So after realizing that, I did the only logical thing I could do. I created my own company.

There are always people from America who want to hire me to do work and why should I sit still in a corner while waiting for the Swedish society to present me with opportunities when I can create them myself?

Although I am happy to be home, there are some things that bother me a lot.

Mainly unemployment. Many people claim that unemployment is not that big of an issue. I do not agree. I’ve seen many friends and family struggle and losing their jobs. I guess when you have a job in today’s market, it’s easy to say that “ Oh, just go out and look, if you haven’t found one, that means you are not looking hard enough”. I resent that statement. It seems to me that when we have the things that others lack, we act as if thou they are given to all.

I understand that some people like being out of work and living on the state. But to claim that all unemployed do is a very shameful thing to say.

Anyway, back to my business. It’s fairly simple. “Big business quality graphic for a small business budget”. Not bad huh?

I already have enough work to keep me going for a while! I am also glad to say that my main client is one of the best people I’ve met in my life. The hard part about running a business is the paperwork. Sheess. The first month I barely had any time to do anything else but file paperwork. Things are finally calming down now and I am getting the hang of how to deal with the Swedish taxes and such. I am also lucky to have my mom helping me out with accounting.

I am still trying to figure out the design on my website, I was thinking something like this. My brother said it didn’t stand out so I am still trying to figure out a way to make it POP!

Now let’s create a success story!

I know I also haven’t written anything about gaming in a while. Mainly because I haven’t had the time to play anything! WAAAH L
