My History with The Sims

My History with The Sims

I don’t typically like to talk about personal things here, but I felt the need to write this up for myself to remember my journey through the Sims games. I thought I’d go ahead and post it publicly if anyone was curious or wanted to read it. I never played a Sims game as a kid. I don’t even know if I knew what they were until one weekend while my best friend from school (still best friend today) was staying over and had brought his laptop with The Sims 3 on it and was wanting to show me the game. This was sometime after The Sims 3 launched in 2009, I was in 8th grade (maybe?) Anyways, point is we made ourselves as sims and

An idea of a DeviantART upgrade

An idea of a DeviantART upgrade

This is a journal about me and my fellow Deviants' ideas for a DeviantART upgrade (though I don't run all of DeviantART). It would be a combination of videos, fan-fictions, fan-art, games, you name it. First off.....inspired by the DeviantART team's DeviantART Originals April Fools' Joke of 2018, DeviantART Video will no doubt be part-YouTube/Vimeo (well some videos do exist in DeviantART but not in a YouTube-Netflix-like way), part-Netflix (worthy of being a Netflix competitor), though I don't want DeviantART to merge with YouTube and Netflix, just make its own YouTube/Netflix-hybrid streaming service. And I've a feeling that DeviantART wou

Secondary Perspective

Secondary Perspective

Ever wondered what it would have been like if you could experience a process that allows you to add a new perspective, based on someone else's point-of-view, to your own. Such a development is something I would personally like to identify as "Secondary Perspective". Imagine that someone would find a way to digitally reverse-engineer one person's thought pattern and then synchronizing it with that of another, by uploading the first person's thought pattern into the brain, or at least the mind, of the second person. I am not talking about rewriting someone's mind by purging the memories and thoughts of that person, only to replace it with ne

My Bio: Hi, my name is Andrew, or Simdrew... I'm sure you already figured that out by now. And I like long walks on the beach, Pina-Coladas, lol ok I'm just kidding, about me well I'm generally a positive, nice, fun, creative person, mostly chill, can be goofy at times, serious, honest, and sometimes full of jokes, only if I'm in a very good mood and sense that you like humor as well, if not then I'm usually quiet and keep to myself speak only when spoken to kinda guy respectfully, I'm still nice though. I'm known to always see the best in a bad situation and the worst in a good one, I try to be optimistic. In general I like to listen to others more than to speak myself. If you don't know this I've got a history of severe migraine headaches, If my migraines are bad I isolate myself away and it causes my personality to become sad, grim, very different almost like all life in me is gone, my migraines are soul suckers. Roughly almost 4 days a week, sometimes 4 guaranteed sometimes even full weeks I get them and sometimes I don't.. even if I don't have say a severe migraine most of the time I'll at least have a headache. I have them often however even on bad days they can go away, sometimes they don't want to, When they do I'm no longer in a Zombie state, I'm a person once more. I've shortened my bio may add everything back later here as it was or make a Wikipedia.

The Legend of Zelda - Ganondorf Quotes Brought to Life - Simdrew1993

-----------------------------------------------

I created my online persona originally as just Drew1993 years back, in my beginning Sims days of Sims 2 on ModTheSims, after a couple years of creators feedback and help trying to make the best Twilight Princess Ganondorf sim for Sims 2, training to be a better artist and sculptor I was successful. Then just before this I believe I requested for the mods to change my name to Simdrew1993. I'm thinking I was already set up as Simdrew1993 on YouTube before all this where I posted Sims videos at first, and Perfect Dark N64 Videos, then I started posting my Voice Over Videos, ever since I was a small child I've always had talent for many voices. I wasn't sure what I was doing at first but I posted my Ganondorf Voice impression of what I imagined in my head he'd sound like, I tried to mimic an Actor from ZREO - Zelda Re-Orchestrated Soundscapes, and after a couple years of trying my voice got real deep, and I developed my own sinister Ganondorf voice. Originally on one of my first videos in 2010 it sounded funny and need fx to sound menacing and deep, yet in 2011 it started to sound like Scar from Lion King, then in 2013 it got real deep and practically became it's own Voice which eventually become well known and very popular and has been featured in numerous Zelda animations and videos all throughout YouTube for different creators, Including 3D Animator RwanLink. And many positive comments on my video in 2013 wishing I worked for Nintendo, as do I.



My life goal since I was a child:


My life goal is to be a voice actor for many companies someday. I am an unofficial voice actor, until I maybe one day work for a company, the only way I could see this ever happening is if someone from some random company contacted me. I am actually kinda disappointed because not enough people have seen my voice over talent, algorithms are hard to meet these days. So I appreciate any support you can give here or on YouTube, you help a person get one more step towards accomplishing his dreams and making them a reality. If I decided to take up a project it all depends on whether I'm interested in it or not first. I am really wanting to be a well known Voice Actor though I realize that I can't do it all on my own, I need others like maybe you, that like my work who are willing to help me make things happen. So feel free, to help me by supporting me, like following me and sharing my videos lol. And if you are a company PLEASE look into my work, consider watching my videos. Even simply adding positive feedback makes my day. You won't be disappointed.

I highly Recommend you watch my videos in HD for best sound/video Quality. Aside from my video the videos I've done for others, including comics and 3D animation are the best, better than my content.Feel free to subscribe, comment or like any of my videos..Truly would mean the world to me! :)


This Dragon video there on my YouTube is an example of how my new studio quality sound recording is, starts with my old poor quality then transcends to the new.

My Personality:

I'm a simple guy, though it's kinda hard to describe a person on the internet. I am often told I'm down to Earth, I enjoy talking to people, I like humor especially making jokes, I like talking but prefer listening more, I'm pretty quiet until I get to know ya, I like being in sunlight it is pretty nice, inspiration, people, making friends, internet, food, swimming, basketball, baseball, throwing a football, I'm easy going. Everything just about. If I suffer from a Migraine I usually go into Zombie/ Vampire mode and avoid everything in life I get them hereditarily having them on almost a day to day basis, ... it's not a choice though I have to avoid life when it happens. People have asked me how do you stay positive and so nice all the time? How do you have such a good personality if you suffer from so much head pain I'd be grouchy feeling the opposite if I were in your shoes, I just say well... It's hard sometimes.. it honestly is! Life is way too important for me to let anything ruin it, you only live once and I'm not gonna let anything keep me down, I will admit it's a struggle sometimes but I'm not gonna let this ruin who I am or what I enjoy doing. It just means I get to do less, and require long breaks to recover.


"How I Got My Name"

My user name is Simdrew1993 because I play Sims 2 a lot, and Sim is also a name used in Rare's Perfect Dark for enemy cpu's, (computers/bots/cpus) so I thought that would be perfect, and Andrew is my real name but a several years ago my older cousin started calling me Drew, and not long after that, everyone has called me Drew for short. some people still call me by my full name though... but not many, and as for the 1993 that was my date of birth, and also my Birthday, my Birthday is January 9th of 1993, yeah I know, 1/9/93 that's kind of funny isn't it well yeah, you see where I got the idea, so then I became (Simdrew1993)

My Tragic Story:


Back in October of 2011 my life was scary I had a horrible back condition, everyday I was in severe pain because at in between the ages of 14 and 15 I developed Scoliosis over the years, and my body got more and more curved and the pain was getting worse each day and every day life activities became harder to do, I eventually went into a state of depression. I had been seeing a Doctor for my spine for a while but then I decided it was time to have surgery I was afraid because spinal surgery is one of the most difficult operations for a person to have, well I wanted to make sure I had the right Dr. and well the Dr. I had, had done many operations but not very much to be experienced so I kept seeing more and more Dr's and then I found one in Saint Louis he has done thousands of operations and had no bad feedback and was on the top of Americas Health-board so I had my operation October 4th 2011, I was in the Hospital for 2 weeks and had to stay in Saint Louis for a 3rd week because my body wouldn't have been able to tolerate the car ride home, took me a while to recover but I am feeling much better pain wise than I did and now I have a almost normal curvature and body makes me so happy! All my life I have never experienced chills or fear from a movie or epic music before because of my spine and now I can! I find those feelings kinda strange. I can do heavy lifting and some work now, sometimes just not much. Still I do get spinal pain though so can't do too much, whereas before surgery it would kill me to do, anything really.


Almost forget to mention I had minor Kyphosis that developed with the Scoliosis which is rounding of the spine on the back, that too was corrected it was small compared to my Scoliosis. Surgery yielded remarkable results. You can see that if you look at my shoulder in my old zoo picture. I also developed Mild Stenosis in the neck around 2017, basically it's like Arthritis, and my neck and shoulders are often in pain from it sadly and tense up, it requires muscle relaxers and tylenol.


Because of my migraines though I'm currently unable to do hard physical labor, my back needs more exercise since I'm often sick, it gets sore since I'm laying down in the dark so frequently, if I didn't have the migraines and could feel well my back would be in great shape with less soreness or tenseness, exercise does make it stronger so taking walks is a must. The pain I have now after surgery can get bad at times, but is very little in comparison to the severity of the pain which was before. Surgery truly was one of the best decisions I've ever made if not the hardest.


Note: So my message is, if you have Scoliosis follow through with your doctor and do everything you can possible and use surgery as a last resort, and if you do have to have surgery I recommend my doctor in Saint Louis, another side note don't let a doctor who shaves out the hip bone do your operation, highly advise against it trust me on this my doctor preserves it so the body still has flexibility many others don't do this, some wish to have surgery in their home states with inexperienced doctors just to be closer to their families, trust me this isn't good in the long run it will ruin your life, you can still see them later trust me, many say this... I understand it may be nice to see family and friends though this decision will last a lifetime so think carefully, ask yourself...do you want family and friends visiting for a little while just for small happiness and then being in pain for years to come, or would you rather have a feel good body later that you can take back home and share memories with loved ones doing what you love, shaved off hip bones will lead to intense pain I've spoken to some who were miserable because of this. Exercise, always exercise, even little walks after surgery will make you feel wonderful.


If you have any questions regarding Scoliosis, Kyphosis or Stenosis I'd be more than happy to assist. Feel free to message me about it anytime.


Thanks for reading. End Of My Story.

My Sims 2, Sims 4, Fallout, Skyrim, ECT - All Games Policy:

Please post those pictures! I must see sims in other peoples pictures! Or my other creations in screenshots. One primary reason why I made them. I encourage it! I wanna see my Sims take over da world!


Ok, so for my Sims and other uploaded creations I encourage you to use them in your videos and pictures, movies and stories, be creative and have fun! If you do use them please credit me, you wouldn't have to add a link or anything just text, but if you did I'd be even more grateful, I know many of you normally forget to add credits but keep in mind that I made these creations for all of you from the greatness of my mind & kindness of heart... not for myself, for the world, and it seriously helps me a lot having my Username spread around, you'd have no idea how happy it'd make me lol and feel free to leave me a comment and show me, I'd love to see whatever it is you come up with or make. As for my projects for several games, dates and times of the download release is usually classified and top secret, time's could vary from long to short, and some projects may not get uploaded, it's all depending on the project and how far along I get with it. If I have come up with a release date I will usually make an announcement. But if you wish to you may ask about it in the meantime then maybe I could hopefully answer any questions that you might have.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Note: One more thing, keep in mind, that if you remove me from your watch I may do the same to you and remove you from my watch as well, hate doing that because it feels mean, if you do it to me it though sadly that proves to me you no longer support my Voice Acting/Art or wish to be friends with me, so losing a watcher is not a good thing for anyone, so I suggest if we're watching eachother and care for eachother, that we continue watching eachother.

How are you holding up with the stay home initiative? Ah I missed your b-day! Happy belated b-day man!
Simdrew1993Professional General Artist

I'm doing ok, bored... Shrek - Bored Shrek Icon miss being out and about... haven't been able to do voice work as much... and got lots of projects to do, neighbors are all home now and mowers going and about cause they all are bored and stir crazy I think... :( so my quiet I normally have isn't as much... and since people are home barkey dogs are out, kids playing, and people that normally aren't home, and city started construction on the roads nearby ugh,

I'm like the Grinch getting annoyed with the noise noise noise How the Grinch Stole Christmas - Mad Grinch Icon

now but recording is nearly impossible, every now and then I get a quiet day here and there, shame, sounds like the VO industry isn't doing well either with this virus about cause too many people are around everywhere...


I have to diet now cause right before this whole Coronavirus started getting bad I got a call from my doctor saying I had prediabetes and I guess I'm pretty close to having actual diabetes it's pretty bad, said I'm climbing close, and my blood sugar has spiked... I felt like my life ended that day.. But now I'm doing better physically. My body feels sick if I eat carbs now haha F2U | Izuku / Deku (UA Sports Uniform) | BNHA .

Prediabetes makes me high risk for Covid-19...not good. So I've had to exercise and change my entire way of life and I lost 20 Lbs this past month yay. :w00t:Out for a jog Blankface Workout Eating healthy is a little more expensive but really not as costly as I was afraid of.. Dieting is hard now because it means I have to go to the store more, or order groceries.. which is risky... so trying to be careful, I eat very low carb now and my mom is doing it too.. And my mom is a nurse so I'm worried about her. My aunt is a nurse too, this worries me. Thanks for the late Happy Birthday. Hope you guys are doing well!

LadySeshiiriaHobbyist General Artist
Dang that all sucks. I hope things get better for you. I hope you don't end up diabetic. That is scary. Great job losing the weight! <B Sorry about the VA stuff though :( I hope your family stays safe. I wish them well.

No problem. Sorry I missed it!!! <B 
Simdrew1993Professional General Artist

Yeah, it does suck.. Thanks I hope I don't get diabetes either, trying everything I can to prevent it. In order to prevent it, I have to permanently diet.

Thanks, I'm gonna keep working on losing more weight lol. laughing

Thanks, yeah it is what it is, hopefully I'll be able to get back into recording again at some point once things go back to normal. Thank you, hope you all stay safe too. These are strange times we live in.


No worries. :)
