Getting Into Grad School

After seeing this post by Carla, I realized I needed to design better rules for attending uni, as I had none lol. I'm basically using Carla's system for the undergrads so you can click on the link above to read about that. I decided to take it a step further and create a system for my sims who seek to earn a degree above the undergraduate degree. You can click on the "Education in LaQuest" link to the right for more info on the master's program. Below are my shiny new requirements for grad school admittance:

Just a kiss

Round 9 - August 2042
Last update/ Next update
Brian Johnson and Joanna King are 28 

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby, I'm alright with just a kiss goodnight

Brian had always wanted to live by the beach, but growing up in Englewood made that impossible. He knew how lucky he was to be WHERE he was. Fate had finally shined down upon his family after kicking them in the teeth for so long. Things were really tough after his father died and his mother struggled a lot. But now she had DeJuan and a nice house in Talum Heights, his sister was married to a doctor and had her own house on the beach and a successful boutique, and he was in a band he loved that allowed him to purchase the house he had always wanted..............

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 9 - August 2042

Four lovely ladies are turning 4 this time around!

First up is 1/2 of the Carr twins, Lauren Joyce Carr. Lauren is excited about going to school and with her very outgoing personality (9), she is sure to make lots of new friends. She's not the nicest kid in the world (3), but she has her mother's charisma and should do just fine!

Round 8 Summary

Births: Andromeda Oros, Miranda Picaso, Joss Willis, Jasmine Oros, Payton Newson, Logan Phillippine,

Weddings: Tippy Dean & Casey Addler

Expectant Mothers: Amanda Gray

Graduates: Caleb Henderson, Ginger Newson, Meadow Thayer, Ricky Cormier, Kimberly Jackson

Oh Round 8, what drama you contained! We got a new alien resident, Meadow and Slade proved that they weren't horrible parents, Mellow Metal had an album go gold, and two of our military men served their country and returned home! With so much happening, bet you wonder what Round 9 will hold, right? Well here's the ROS for Round 9:

* Cheat! Can be an affair or a one time only thing.
* Woohoo scavenger hunt! Woohoo on all available objects.
* Party (Rolled a barbeque)

The cheating one is going to be quite interesting. It is very fitting for the sim that rolled it and I'm thinking it will be a one time thing. But I haven't quite decided. I was going to roll for it but I decided to let the sim's personality decide how serious it is. The woohoo scavenger hunt fits the sim that rolled it :). And the party will be much needed for this family, although I don't know how it will end. It has the potential to be a disaster or a great time lol.

And after viewing the voting results, Mindi Mason will now be a playable! There were 4 votes for her becoming a resident, 2 for her staying in the background, and 1 of you didn't know who the heck she was lol. I'm exciting about breathing more life into Mindi, I think she's actually quite an interesting character. She will be moving into her own place and hopefully pursuing a relationship with Mr. Marcus Burns :).

Brian Johnson will also finally move into his own place with Joanna. I think it's safe to leave Slade alone now, he's proven himself trustworthy, at least when it comes to Joss! Mellow Metal will also do some shows in this next round, and I haven't completely ruled out another tour...........

I'm excited to see how Celeste and Satitu handle their new adopted daughter. She is quite different from Andromeda. I'm also thinking I may introduce Connor to Totia this upcoming round. It'll be best to ease him into his visit to Peragama when he turns 12 and Totia is a good start for that.

I really enjoy playing the sims and sharing my stories with you guys and I'm so glad that each of you take the time out of your days or nights to read about my little pixelated people :). I will once again be taking a mandatory break this summer as the class I need was canceled and won't be taught until the fall. So my updates still may be sparse until about the end of May. But then I get 2 months of fun with no class assignments to worry about :). Thanks so much for hanging in there with me during these droughts and I really appreciate all the comments you guys leave, you're all awesome! See ya in Round 9!

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 8 - July 2042
Just one birthday this time!

Jasmine Oros is now 1 year old! She has her father's (Terrence Coners) almond shaped eyes. I think we'll see a lot of similarities between her and her half-siblings as she gets older.

* She is DEFINITELY much more green than Conner! I love that freckled alien skin though :). The multi pollination tech set I have really has some nice skins. She has the same eyes as Celeste and her family, although it's hard to see it in this pic. 

* Guess what's next? Tippy's wedding! I've already written it up and have it ready to go and will probably post it tomorrow :). The wedding will be the last post for this round, yay!

If Everyone Cared

Round 8 - June 2042
Jacob Ellison is 42, Lorelai is 36, Kiara is 4, AJ is 1

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be 

Jake couldn't believe that his little man was already a year old. Time seemed to be flying by at an unrealistic rate. He wished he could bottle this time up, save it for later once the kids became teens. He was so busy with the studio and the club that he rarely got a chance to enjoy the quiet times. And with as often as Lorelai was being called to Vasadori, he had a feeling that things wouldn't be quiet for either of them pretty soon........
