My name is Avalyn Gladstone. Most people just call me Lyn, but if you want to call me something else I won't mind! I'm writing to you now because it's what I used to do when I was a kid. Something new would happen and I'd be itching all day to just get home and write it up in my diary!
I figured that since I've just moved to a whole new town all alone I'd start again. It's almost like having a friend, having a diary. This diary is extra special, though, because Mum got it for me just before I left. It even has these neat spaces where I can put photos!
Anyway, I should get on with my big news! I've just moved house! I was looking for somewhere cheap to live after finishing university that wasn't with my parents (I love them and all, but I don't want to live with them forever! Sorry, Mum!) and I couldn't find anywhere. Like, nowhere! There were no affordable apartments in Bridgeport, Riverview is so not my style and like hell could I afford anything in Sunset Valley! I guess I was just really lucky when my weird uncle Goopy died and left me a house!
So, not knowing much about it, I packed up and moved away to Twinbrook and to my very own house! When I arrived I was just a little bit disappointed, though...
Still, you've got to put up with these things, right? It's really pretty around here for a swamp, anyway!
The house was empty when I arrived. Apparently my uncle hadn't given me any of his furniture! ... except some strange things out back, which I discovered later, but that's another story!
Luckily I'd brought some of my own stuff with me! The tiny house looked a little nicer when I was done with it. Shame about the walls, though! They're definitely on my list of things to change when I get my hands on some money!
It's getting late and I've got to go job-hunting tomorrow so I'm going to go to bed ... which, luckily, is in the living room! Yep, it's got a combined living/dining/sleeping room!
This is sort of an experimental thing from me. I usually get bored of actually playing my sims quite quickly and then I just make them have babies and collect skills and money, but this time I wanted to do something a little different. The basic idea here is that I'm going to follow Avalyn's life as she lives it, and hopefully reporting back to everyone will keep me at least a little bit interested in playing the game!
