Day 3: My life as Mayor

I’ve been made mayor of Strawberry Fields (Forever), just a couple of days ago.

Strawberry Fields (Forever) is a city of my own making, a burgeoning small city in the SimCity Build It app that I’ve discovered while on vacation…

It is taking up a lot of my time, and already, I am finding myself looking forward to “harvesting” from my factories and collecting taxes, so I can find more ways to satisfy my townspeople…

Sometimes, I really take to heart their little comments, “We demand education for our children!” or “I need a bus stop”…and truth be told, I’ve looked google up for cheats, so I can have buckets and buckets of simoleons at my disposal.

(I tried, but it was unsuccessful.)

So here I am, building my own little city from scratch… and making a good project out of it. It’s almost like designing my own life, and moving stuff around (although there’s not that much room for ‘moving around’ these days) so that everybody’s happy, including myself. 🙂

I’ll probably get tired of it, as I did Fairy Village, but I don’t think it will be soon. I love the creative challenge…


In life, people dear (and not so dear) to me will always have an opinion, but it will be up to me to react as well as I can to that opinion. Feedback, from actual or fictional (or in this case, app-based) will always be a good check of what I am doing. It is always best to seek it.


Anyway, so far, so good, i’m on Day 3 of my 365-day blogging resolution. I’m excited about this year…may it be my best year yet. 




I like this article…it’s an idea for a new project! 🙂
