I'm Carissa, but you can call me Riss if you want. I'm twenty and the oldest of three girls. My youngest sister is 16 and the middle of us is 18. I graduated high school in J2012 and after a year of college, I've changed my major so I'm signed up for classes at the local community college starting in Fall.
As far as simming goes, I started playing when I was ten. My parents bought me the Sims Complete Collection. I don't even remember why. Two years later I bought myself the Sims 2 for Christmas and I slowly got all the EPs. When I first heard about the Sims 3, I thought it sounded stupid. But when my BFF got it and offered to let me come over and try it out, I thought "Why not?" When I left her house that day I really wanted to buy it, but it was another couple of months before I could get it and then get it to play on my computer. Ever since then I've switched between liking the Sims 2 and the Sims 3 better. Luckily my laptop can handle having both games installed, so I don't have to uninstall and then reinstall like when I had to share a computer with my sisters.
At the moment, I'm playing TS2 over TS3 but that might change in a few months. I am eager to see what the reviews are for TS4, but I won't be buying it right away. I might wait until Christmas or my birthday.
