So, after a way too long time, I've finally returned to my legacy. If anybody was wondering where I'd run off to, well...
I've been busy doing this:
...and so on. XD
In all honesty though, real life just completely caught up to me. I had been given the most amazing opportunity of working on a farm in a different country (New Zealand) for just under a year. I've been trying to make the absolute best out of this opportunity, so I've been travelling and meeting people and ticking things off my bucket list and doing things I would never have previously even tried to do. I've learned how to drive tractors, went camping on my own, spent hours languishing in hot pools surrounded by snow and mountains, spent more hours working in pouring rain and getting animals out of ditches (and enjoying it all the way).
I've been having a hell of a lot of fun, and simming simply didn't cross my mind.
...But lately, in the quiet moments, Lyra's been knocking on my door, going "Remember me?"
And well, of course I did. I opened my game for the first time in over a year and went: Oh yeah, this is why I enjoyed it so much. Rereading my previous chapters only served to remind me even more, so here I am. Hopefully this time, I won't disappear again. XD
