Momma Told Me: You're quite the character!
I suppose now's as good a time as any to confess, in high school, I was not the 'cool' kid. The fact I was several years younger than my peers and my father kept his shotgun polish in the hallway outside my bedroom didn't help either. So, when I wasn't studying, or taking make up college courses for the high school years I'd skipped, I was on the computer engrossed in my own make believe world. I held no authority in my own life, so I settled for painstakingly painting every feature of another's, in The Sims Series of computer and video based games.
When I was five or six I recall watching over my father's shoulder as he tinkered in the original Sim City (1989) on a boxy computer he kept hidden in a giant scroll top desk. Then, again in 1994, when I was about old enough to pick and choose my own computer programs, I was allowed my first copy of SimCity2000; a sandbox style game much more different than the Electronic Arts people simulator The Sims, later released in 2000. But this franchise was precisely the reason a 16 year-old me packed up and headed to art school to major in Game Art And Design in 2003.
