Hi everyone, my name is Kevin AKA TheSimsBoi on Twitter.
My adventure as a Simmer began in the year 2000. I remember it like it was yesterday to be quite honest. I was in 5th grade, and I kept hearing my classmates talk about this phenomenon to be known as “The Sims.” A friend of mine told me that the game was super addicting, and that you could control almost every aspect of your Sims’ life; I was already hooked. I had a few bucks in my money stash, and I begged my mom to take me to Wal-Mart to get the game. At the time, “Livin’ Large” was already out, but I only purchased the base game. The first time I played the game, I played for a little more than 8 hours. I could not believe how exciting creating and playing with Sims was. Here we are now 13 years later, and I am still addicted to the series.
Last year I decided to start my YouTube channel “RealSimwivesHD.” I am a HUGE fan of the “Real Housewives,” and I dreamt about creating a Sims version. One of the problems with my dream was my inexperience with video editing, and graphics design. I spent several months watching YouTube tutorials, and experimenting with software before I began working on the series. When you watch a TV show, or a series on YouTube you do not realize just how much work goes into making the shows. I quickly realized that this was not going to be an easy task, but I did not want to give up… I wanted to prove to myself that I could make a series. In April of 2013, I posted a casting-call for actors/actresses for the show. The reception was rather incredible; I could not believe how many people were interested in being a part of the series. 3 months after posting the casting-call, the Real Simwives of Starlight Shores made its debut on YouTube. The show was incredibly well received by the Sims & YouTube community. In a few weeks, the last episode of the season will make its way on YouTube. I cannot believe just how fast time has gone by.
To-date I have 25 videos on my channel, and I hope to see a lot more on there in the future. With the season ending shortly, I am already getting asked about the future of the series. Right now, I am focusing on ending season 1 with a bang. I would love to do a season 2… we will see where the future takes us! 😉
As far as the future of the Sims is concerned; I am quite excited to see what’s in store for us Simmers. I must admit, I was not that fond of the Sims 4 when the game was shown at Gamescom, but I am confident that EA will produce another hit series.
Besides Simming, I am a full-time student in college. I am in my last year with my Bachelor’s degree, and I am excited to see what’s in store for my future. I have such a thirst for life, and I want to make difference in people’s lives. School and Simming aside… I LOVE surrounding myself with friends, and family. I love hard, and I will die loving hard. Spread love everyone, because you have to!
