"Why this deep sorrow when necessity speaks- can our love endure except through sacrifices, through not demanding everything from one another; can you change the fact that you are not wholly mine, I not wholly thine."

-Ludwig Van Beethoven, Letters to the Immortal Beloved

Hi! My name is Vanessa, known on the internet as Van Squirgle. My screen name, by the way, is pronounced El Squirgle-O. Yeah, it is totally random and has no meaning at all to me. I'm 24 years old, and I currently live on Long Island but I am absolutely DYING to live elsewhere. I recently graduated from college with a degree in vocal performance with a concentration in music business.

I also run a small shop called Phunky Junk N' Jewels, where I sell my handmade jewelry. You can find examples of my work at my website.

But enough about me... This is not your typical journal! That's right, this is my SIMS journal! I absolutely LOVE to create sims- especially of fictional characters and celebrities. I also enjoy sharing said sims with other people, so be on the lookout for download links! You might also find some rants about craft fairs and pictures of my jewelry on here, but I will try and keep those down to a minimum.
