Jeepers, sounds like a lot of things going on in your life. When people visit your apartment and wonder where all the furnishing are tell them its minimalism.
Longest time without sims? I think about 2 months. It was a long time.
Yay that you will be creating again, but ouch @ the 'Net speed and prize. No offence to you Americans, but when you lag behind the rest of us, you certainly do it with a vengeance.
The longest I've gone without simming... let's see, that must have been when my computer crashed last year. About a month? It felt like a year.
Longest without simming? Dunno? Before I started making stuff, I can say that there were peroids of no simming (because I'm like that with every game I play). Since I started making stuff? Probably no longer than a day.
I hear you about sucky internet. My old provider was terrible- I don't know that the speed was but I do know that downloading stuff was a nightmare (something over 10mb probably wouldn't download correctly the first try- something over 20mb probably wouldn't download at all until the middle of the night) and I was happier than happy to finally be done with them. That was the only internet I could get (thanks to things being ruined for me by the ex) at the time. Those 2 years paid off though since I was able to get better internet. Still not sure what the speed is supposed to be but it's a million times better - just downloaded a file that was over 100mb in less than 2 minutes the other day- and its half the price. AND I get basic cable, lol. Yay! (CW is included in basic cable. CW=Supernatural. Supernatural=one happy MLC, lol. If they'd only include AMC in that so I could watch The Walking Dead...)
Welcome back Nanashi! I hear you with the sucky internet and cost. We have very sucky internet in Australia too.
The longest I've gone without playing sims was about a year - and given everything else that was going on, I didn't really have the brain space for it either. I went for 5 years with only playing sims 3 and I missed Sims 2 horribly. I returned to Sims2 about 2 years ago now and will not let it go until there are no more computers left in the world that it can be played on.
