Guest Post: Life changes for TSTO

Today I present the first ever guest post and it is a really good one. With the mini-event almost done it is time for a lull post. FeliciaFancy is a great regular at TOuk so here is her post …

I reached Level 285 today and this was the pop up that appeared. 

It really reached me on a philosophical level, but I also, actually laughed out loud! My life does revolve around a game …. something I never thought I would say … something I mocked other people for …something I used to feel a little embarrassed about. 

So I need to cleanse my soul and confess all the silly things I have done (or not done) for The Simpsons Tapped Out. 

* I cancelled plans with my best friend because a new event started   

* I ignored a phone call from my mum because I needed to battle felons 

* I was late to pick my son up from school because I needed to harvest Chilli Peppers 

* I planned a journey to my mother in law’s to make the most of the XP collider whilst KEM farming 

* I planned my work breaks to maximise trash collection for the monorail 

* I stayed up until 1am to do finish tasks and start the next one when I had to be up at 6am for work the next day 

* Completely missed major plot lines in numerous TV shows because I have been grinding on Springfield Heights and not paying attention 

I have embraced the fact that I am a Tapped Out Addict, I no longer feel the shame. I confidently tell my friends/family that I will be there for them but only when Homer has tested 100 bean bag chairs, Maggie has explored the playdough factory and Ned has trimmed the hedge. 

What is the worst thing you have done/not done to ‘win’ Tapped Out? I’d love to hear something from you guys in the comments … just to make myself feel better to be honest. 

So feel free to share…

Thanks FF, go ahead and show her some support. Comment below …

  1. When are u doing the rest of dunceman story and I can’t wait for next week Kwik-E-Mark story

  2. Hi, Felicia!

    This might be hard for me, since I’m not sure I have much a social life… Let’s take a look at each item on your list:

    * I cancelled plans with my best friend because a new event started
    Does not even making plans count?

    * I ignored a phone call from my mum because I needed to battle felons
    Does never taking a phone call count? (There’s text and voice mail for a reason, right?)

    * I was late to pick my son up from school because I needed to harvest Chilli Peppers
    Well, I’m usually late everywhere…but not just because of the game. I guess it’s possible the game has had one of it’s hands in the chili pot.

    * I planned a journey to my mother in law’s to make the most of the XP collider whilst KEM farming
    I’m not totally sure I understood this one. You mean, you planned the trip to have breaks every 4 hours so you could still Farm seemlessly while visiting your mother-in-law? I’m going to say…I try to line up my 4 hours with breaks between activities, yes!

    * I planned my work breaks to maximise trash collection for the monorail
    Just the trash, huh? I’ve been so lazy with the rail yard that I don’t worry about replenishing trash too much.

    * I stayed up until 1am to do finish tasks and start the next one when I had to be up at 6am for work the next day
    I’ve stayed up until 1am (on purpose) waaaayyyy too often. Like you say, even when I don’t even need to plus I need to be up early. Yes, this = me.

    * Completely missed major plot lines in numerous TV shows because I have been grinding on Springfield Heights and not paying attention
    Well, um, yes. I can’t really play and watch a show unless it’s a rerun. I will miss everything. lol

    Here’s some of my own:

    * I don’t sleep well at the beginning of an event. Even though I pretty much know I will finish each act with time to spare I can’t rest until I have everyone going all the way up to the social part (usually that’s the last part unlocked during each event). So if the game sends my characters on a task for 4 hours and it’s already midnight…. I will probably WANT to wake up at 4am……. I might sleep, but I will probably “dream” about doing it. 🙁 😐

    * I think about the game, even during emergencies. I mean, I might not play, and the thought might be “don’t think about the game; stop it!” but it’s still there. Hopefully all emergencies occur on the weekend after I send my characters on 24h tasks. 😉

    * When my game doesn’t work (reasons) I often think, “okay, done being social (commenting on sites like this) until my game works again”. Talk about how the game interferes with being social…..

    Well, that’s good enough for now. I hope y’all enjoyed that too large of a comment.

    • Hilarious Simp7fan. My fingers are crossed for you that no emergencies occur that interfere with the new update.

      My first thought when I woke up this morning was “Has the update hit?”

      So I checked the play store …. nothing.

      Check my email to see if I had a notification of a blog post… nothing.

      By this point I am wide awake, brain whirring.

      So I am up for the day now and will just sit and wait and check the play store every five minutes or just stare at the home feed on Tapped-Out UK and wait for Sam to let me now what’s going on!

      • I will hope to be the first blog to notice (again!) … Fingers crossed!
        I wouldn’t do it all day as I am expecting it evening BST – when it normally is – and definitely not morning because EDT won’t even be awake by then.
        People like me, Alissa and LP etc now about the event, what content will hit before it reaches the app store because they add stuff to the files a few hours before the app store goes live!

      • Thanks for the well-wishes!

        Hah, I think it won’t hit for at least 8 to 12 more hours, but yes, HappyTapper might well have the info first!

        • He he he, that’s the problem with events: they give you the information a while before it hits so it gives bloggers time to wake up and get the ‘Future event is live’ post ready.

          • Wake up? Nah. I’ll leave that kind of thing to you. I guess you’re the blogger of the day! 😉

      • Lol I felt same felicia fancy

  3. I have completely ignored East enders and big brother while tapping. ..its addictive 😀

  4. Awesome Felicia ♡ thank you for being a a fool of a touk 😀

  5. I sold my kidney to Dr. Nick for donut money!

    Nice post Felicia.

  6. Wow! You truly are a tapped out Addict and a fool of a Touk , FF. Great post by the way. Guilty as charged for some of them myself.
    I’ll confess to spending a whole afternoon designing my Casino area. I’m pretty sure I ignored the phone at least twice ! What the heck! If it’s that important ,they’ll ring back. What? You did? That would be the second phone call then. You got me now…. and I’ve finished designing, whaddya want? 🙂
