The Sims has come out with an update today, which first surprised me because I didn’t realize “The Sims” was still a computer game. The last I heard of it was when I was screaming at my mom that I needed both the “House Party” AND “Hot Date” expansion packs, so I could use cheat codes (CRTL+SHIFT+C – Rosebud;;;;;) to make giant houses and delete the stairs so everyone would be stuck upstairs, on their love shaped beds. It sounds very concerning now that I revisit that facet of my mind but I swear, trapping your Sims in their own houses and forcing them to get into relationships was the hotness back when I was like, 9 years old.
Apparently The Sims has evolved FAR past this, and I think I need to get back into the world. Why, do you ask? Apart from a few fashion collaborations (lol WUT) The Sims now has a new option to choose for your occupation: Freelancer.
FINALLY. EVERYONE’S MOTHER FUCKING DREAM. Freelancer. Working from home. Working for tons of companies at once. Going to busy restaurants during the day because everyone else is at work. Confusing your grandparents. Long conversations at family holidays trying to explain to your out-of-touch cousins that you do, in fact, have a job too. Having shitty healthcare. being taken advantage of. Never getting paid on time. NOW WE CAN ALL HAVE IT ALL!!!!!!!
And that, my friends, is the American Dream.
