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.

Push it

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.

New born

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.

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.

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

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.
