No way back




Tom and Greg come to the Bluebell Hall almost every day after their classes. Their own dorm is quite small and there's not much to do.

Living on my own

Round 9: Summer 2012
last update/next update

Rianna Midlock is 42, Anthony is 38, Emily is 4 and Sara is 3.


Narrated by Rianna Midlock

I love the fact that our life is in order. We haven't even hired a nanny because I come home in the afternoon and Anthony usually goes to the studio pretty late in the evening. Spending time with each other and the girls is the best moment of our days.

Summer 2012 birthdays


The Fielding household is going through some exciting times as Regan and Max are awaiting for the arrival of not just one but two grandchildren. Nyah's due date is very close so Thomas has practically lived there too for the past few weeks.

Round 9: Spring 2012
last update/next update

Sam Cooper is 34, Madelyn and Ross are 6 months and Grace Robinson is 29.


Narrated by Grace Robinson

Our lives revolve pretty much around the babies at the moment. Our little ones are already 6 months old so I've gotten back to work at the hospital. Sam and I both work only part-time at the moment so that one of us is at home with the kids while the other is at work.

Always on my mind

Round 9: Spring 2012
last update/next update

Thomas Marlowe is 25, Camryn Mitchell and Patsy Greene are 21, Alexa Harper and Brooke are 20 and Greg Newman and Tom Patterson are 19.
(Nyah is 26, Dixie is 18 and Erin is 17.)



Thomas's dorm mates weren't as shocked as he had expected when they heard he's about to become a father. He's a few years older than the others and he and Nyah have been together "for ages". Nyah and her big belly are quite a familiar sight at the Greenleaves Hall nowadays so nobody pays them much attention.

I'm closing the restaurant for the holidays so I can spend time with my family. It's going pretty well. We get a lot of customers and me and the girls have really become a good team. Laura is the perfect hostess and Carole is the best server in town.

Brooke throws another party. It's a nice excuse to see Charlie and all her other friends who are still at high school. This time the party contains less teenagers kissing and more dancing.

Wellington High

As promised, here are pictures of the new highschool in Wellington... imaginatively named Wellington High. All my teens will go here starting Spring 2012. The principal (and the only teacher at the moment) is Nyah Fielding.

You can see bigger versions of the pictures by clicking the pics (I especially suggest this on the floorplans as I made those pics bigger than I usually do).

Front.

Back.

The hall. The first door opens to the cafeteria, the second one opens to the boys' bathroom. The space between the two doors is a corridor with lockers, a sofa and some vending machines. There's a similar corridor on the other side of the hall between the girls' bathroom and the teachers' lounge.

A view of the corridor.

The teachers' lounge. They have their own bathroom behind the door.

The gradework classroom.

The library.

The arts & crafts class.

1st floor.

2nd floor.

Notes:
* The building to the right of the school is the renewed Generation X (the teens' hangout) it's the
Louisville's Pinball Wizard from Simcastic Designs (Community Lots page 10). The building in the back is the Center Drip Coffee Shop (or something like that), it's from one of the Maxis hoods. The building opposite the school is Dolly's Diner, downloaded from loco-plus (and slightly modified by yours truly).
* The pictures are a bit dark because I'm stupid and didn't turn on the lights.

Nyah visits the City Hall to check out the job openings. She's been working in the education career for a few months now as a substitute teacher but she'd like to get a steadier job. She finds out that the town will finally get its own high school and she decides to apply for a job there.

The Hayes-Myerson wedding

Round 9: Summer 2011

Alexandra Hayes is 37 and Quinn Myerson is 35.


The summer has been hot as hell but it starts raining right before Alexandra and Quinn are preparing to exchange their vows. They won't let a little summer rain bother them though. Alexandra has told Quinn that she doesn't want to change her last name since she doesn't want to use a different last name than Aaron and Ethan. Quinn tells his bride that he will become Quinn Hayes so their whole family uses the same last name.
