Round 11 ROS

ROS for round 11. Oh well, at least I don't have to kill anyone.

Dumping! Do the dirty deed and dump your spouse/partner. - I'm definitely not happy about this but it doesn't say they have to stay apart forever!

Sudden change of lifeplans. Sim must quit their current job and choose a new career immediately.
- This is quite annoying since this sim is already quite high in their career.

Viagra overdose! Flirt with the next walk by of the approriate sex for 8 times.
- This will be fun!

You're feeling inspired and donate 10% of your personal net worth to charity. Maxmotives because you feel so good.
- It's not going to be much since this sim is not exactly loaded. I'll have to see what I'll use it for.

Round 10: Autumn 2014
last update/next update

Rianna Midlock is 44, Anthony is 40, Emily is 6, Sara is 5 and Jesse is 1.


Narrated by Anthony Midlock

We have settled into our new home very nicely. We have a huge mortgage and it'll probably take years before we're debt-free but we're happy.

Learning the hard way

Round 10: Autumn 2014

Principal Nyah Marlowe is 28.
Students:
Danny Cooper is 18, Liv Harris is 16 and Stephen Marlowe is 13.
Townie students: Veronica Andrews, Calista Morgan, Nico Morris and Jay Winters.


Nyah wants to concentrate on gradework this school year. After some whining and grining from the students they finally settle at their desks and get to work. Nyah has the patience of a saint and she's always fair but she can be one tough cookie if the students start rebelling too much.

New soul

Round 10: Autumn 2014
last update/next update/Greg's next update

Greg Newman is 21 and Charlie and Janie Greene are 20.



The drama is slowly dying in the Greenleaves Hall. Janie spent some time at her parents' house during the summer so that she and Greg could both cool down a bit and maybe become friends again. The break seems to have done good for them since they're chatting like old friends again.

With my own two hands

Round 10: Autumn 2014
last update/next update

Tom Patterson is 21 and Dixie Greene is 20.




Tom and Dixie had a bit of a scare in the summer because Dixie thought she might be pregnant but it turned out to be a false positive. While they both want kids eventually, they just feel that the time isn't right for babies. They're both making relieved phone calls to their closest friends to let them know that things are back to normal.

Falling slowly

Round 10: Autumn 2014
last update/next update

Erin Fielding is 19 and Iona is 2.
(
Greg is 21.)


Narrated by Erin Fielding

I think Tom is trying to act as mediator for me and Greg. He's always saying how much Greg misses me and when they come over he urges Greg to say how pretty I look. I know he means well but he's getting on my nerves. I finally told him that he has to stop doing that.

Chasing pirates

Round 10: Summer 2014
last update/next update

Sam Cooper is 36, Grace is 31 and Madelyn and Ross are 3.


Narrated by Sam Cooper

We were all so shocked when we heard the news of Olivia's death. Grace took it pretty hard especially since she hasn't been in touch with her family very much during the past few years. The saddest thing is that our kids will never really get to know their nana Olivia because they only met her a couple of times and are probably too small to remember her.

Tell me what we're gonna do now

Round 10: Summer 2014
last update/next update

Kurt Robinson is 58, Jack is 31, Paige is 30, Frieda is 6 and Todd is 2.


Narrated by Paige Robinson

This summer started in the worst way that you could possibly imagine. Olivia passed away so suddenly. Kurt has been taking it really hard. They were married for 35 years and I can't even imagine what he's going through.

Summer 2014 birthdays

Brooke Harper finally pulled her act together and graduated from Brixton Academy, one semester later than her twin sister Alexa. Her parents Amabelle and Chase are extremely proud of her.

Save it for a rainy day

Round 10: Spring 2014
last update/next update

Ryland and Jackie Whitfield are 63 and Dawn and Zach are 10.


Narrated by Ryland Whitfield

There's not a moment of silence in our house. The kids are always making some kind of noise. I guess in a few years it'll be slamming doors and playing bad music too loudly so I'm just happy to hear them play cops and robbers now.

King of bloke and bird

Round 10: Spring 2014

Principal Rianna Midlock is 44 and Patsy Greene is 23.
Students: Dawn and Zach Whitfield are 10, Josh Cooper, Lilly Fielding and Finn Harris are 9, Aaron and Ethan Hayes, Emily Midlock and Frieda Robinson are 6 and Sara Midlock is 5.


This semester Rianna and the older students concentrate on literature. Rianna has given the kids a list of books which they all read and then discuss them in the class. It's a nice break from the gradework.

More than that

Round 10: Spring 2014
last update/next update

Brooke Harper is 22, Greg Newman is 21 and Charlie and Janie Greene are 20.
(Danny is 18.)


Janie is pretty shocked to learn that Danny knows all about her affair with Greg. And he's not too happy about it. It's not like they were serious or anything but they did go on several dates before Janie went to college.

Nothing compares 2 U

Round 10: Spring 2014
last update/next update

Tom Patterson is 21 and Dixie Greene is 20.



Dixie and Tom have been visiting Dixie's parents over the weekend and they decide to stop by at Center Drip Coffee Shop for a late night espresso before heading back to Brixton. Tom is still quite touched by the fact that he was invited to join Patsy and Camryn's wedding party even though he's not "officially" part of the family.

No one

Round 10: Spring 2014
last update/next update

Erin Fielding is 19 and Iona is 2.
(Greg is 21.)


Narrated by Erin Fielding.

Here we are, Iona and I, in our new home. We rented this family housing unit which is on a quieter area of the campus. The university gives an extra §1.000 to students with kids so that they can afford to rent a house. You have to pay it back when you graduate but it's still a nice addition.

Jesse Midlock has his 1st birthday and turns out to be another replica of his mother Rianna, just like his big sisters Emily and Sara.

Round 10: Winter 2014
last update/ next update

Ben Cooper is 36, Denise is 28, Riley is 4 and Liam is 2.
(Ryland and Jackie are 63, Dawn and Zach are 10.)


Narrated by Denise Cooper

We're trying to sit down for a meal together at least once a day. It's easier during the weekend when we're all home. For some reason Liam hates to be in the high chair so he doesn't join us. He prefers to drink his bottle of formula sitting on the floor so he can get back to playing with blocks or drawing on the activity table.

Round 10: Winter 2014
last update/next update/Danny's next update

Cal and Elissa Cooper are 52, Danny is 18 and Josh is 9.
(Liv is 16 and Riley is 4.)


Narrated by Danny Cooper

I saw dad checking the real estate agency's website one day. He noticed me and asked me how I'd feel if we moved. I said I don't really care since I'll be moving out soon anyway. I already know I probably won't be going to college since mom and dad can't afford to pay for my tuitions. It's not like I have big career plans but I still would've loved to get a proper education.

Winter 2014 birthdays

Nyah Marlowe has started to feel very uncomfortable towards the end of her pregnancy. It feels like the twins are having an neverending football match in her belly. Her back aches all the time and she can't even pick up her 2-year-old daughter Skye because her belly gets in the way.

The islander

Round 10: Autumn 2013

Principal Rianna Midlock is 43, teacher Patsy Greene is 22, Stephen Marlowe is 12, Dawn and Zach Whitfield are 9, Josh Cooper, Lilly Fielding and Finn Harris are 8, Aaron and Ethan Hayes, Emily Midlock and Frieda Robinson are 5.


The school has been modified a bit. The pre-schoolers now have their own class on the second floor. Patsy wants to start the semester easy so she lets the kids play on the activity table before they tackle the gradework books.

Round 10: Autumn 2013

Stella Harris is 49, Liv is 15, Finn is 8 and Deacon Burrows is 48.
(Erin is 18.)


Narrated by Deacon Burrows

We want the kids to have wholesome hobbies so I often invite Liv to play a game of chess with me.

I don't think so




Dixie and Tom love having the other students over now that they are more settled into their new home.

Autumn 2013 birthdays

Not really a birthday post but an update on Nyah Marlowe's pregnancy.

Nyah is on maternity leave but she still wants to know what's going on in "her" school. She keeps in touch with the substitute teacher weekly via email.

The Greene-Mitchell wedding

Round 10: Summer 2013

Camryn Mitchell and Patsy Greene are both 22.


Camryn and Patsy are checking out the backyard where their wedding will take place next day. It looks quite bare as they simply can't afford to get any flowers or other decorations but the arch and the chairs look really nice.

Ready to run

Round 10: Summer 2013
last update/next update

Chase and Amabelle Harper are 58.
(Alexa and Brooke are 21, Charlie is 20 and Will is 28.)


Narrated by Amabelle Harper

We got some disturbing news some time ago. Brooke was put on academic probation because her grades were so bad. I don't know what's wrong with that girl! She says she dreams of becoming a top journalist which requires a college degree but still she slacks off like this. Chase and I needed something else to think about so we decided to throw a party for the other "old" couples in the neighborhood.

Summer 2013 birthdays


Skye Marlowe has her first birthday. She has her mother's nose but her eyes and mouth are definitely from her father's side of the family.

Principal Nyah Fielding is 27, Erin Fielding is 18, Danny Cooper is 17 and Liv Harris is 15.
Townie students: Veronica Andrews, Calista Morgan, Nico Morris
and Jay Winters.



The arts and crafts class is still the students' favorite. Liv is getting pretty good at the pottery table although she can only make plates so far.

Round 10: Spring 2013
Nyah's last update/Thomas's last update/next update

Nyah Fielding is 27, Thomas Marlowe is 26 and Skye is 9 months.
(Vicki is 6
2.)


Narrated by Thomas Marlowe.

All hell broke loose when my brother-in-law confessed to my sister that he's been working for a criminal syndicate and that I'm one of his "colleagues". Naturally Alexandra flipped out completely and demanded that Quinn must leave the crime world immediately. She also called Nyah and told her everything. We've been fighting ever since. We had been planning to get wed this spring but now I don't know what will happen.

Shameless plug

I have just started another blog CISSIE'S CREATIONS for whatever I may happen to create for TS2. So far there's only one download but I plan to add some older stuff there later this weekend.

Enjoy :)

Uprising

Round 10: Spring 2013
last update/next update

Patrick Marlowe is 66, Vicki is 62, Stephen is 12, Alexandra Hayes is 39, Quinn is 37, Aaron and Ethan are 5 and Jeremy is 2.


Narrated by Alexandra Hayes

I can't believe Aaron and Ethan have started school already! Seems like I don't have to worry about them making friends since they brought a couple of class mates home after school on the first day. They're only 5 years old and already bringing girls home!
