Défi Adolescent Immortel


A while ago (ok it was just November, but I'm challenged so it was a while ago) I created a challenge with itsjulie on Boolprop for the 13th Birthday Challenge titled The Immortal Teenager Challenge (TIT, if you will 😏). Julie and I worked for ages on this and I never had time to play it because we were already moving into the Christmas season and I was doing finals and trying to set up my schedule.

Well, here comes January, and I realized earlier today that I'd been studying French as a second language for several months and it was time to start flipping on the immersion switch, if you will. You know, where you start converting your devices and other things to the language so it starts to get more familiar. I realized this morning that I've been playing the Sims for a very long time - and that might be a good place to start in...

However I sure as hell ain't crazy enough to flip my TS3 game into French (that would require a reinstall, which would be painful) because I NEED it for my stories - so I need to know exactly where everything is.

The Sims 4, on the other hand?

That one was open, so I swapped everything over and... boy am I not as good at French as I thought I was! I played through the tutorial just so I could see what I would be up against and let me tell you - it wasn't IMPOSSIBLE, no, it just took me a while to decipher what it was asking... and to be honest I didn't recognize any of the menus when having sims try to interact with other sims. So I thought... what better thing to do than to throw myself into a challenge I've never played before and watch myself squirm? Hey, maybe I'll learn something!

C'est la vie, faisons le!

Disclaimer: I'm learning French, and have been since last October. I'm very much a novice, so to anyone who speaks it in any of its variations: I'm sorry for the butchering you're about to see. Also, I have a potty mouth and I use it sometimes.
