Ambitions

Round 12: Spring 2017
last update/next update

Liv Harris is 19.
(Niall and Erin are 22.)


Narrated by Liv Harris.

Mom and dad gracefully allowed me to rent a house on campus. Dad was very reluctant at first but honestly, there really weren't any real rules at the dorm so it's not like I couldn't get myself in trouble there as well. Everyone else moved out so I didn't wanna live alone with the weirdos.

They came to check up on me the other day. I made lunch and we sat by the table and talked about assignments and termpapers and whatnots. Finn was being his usual self and talked about sumo wrestling. I love that kid!

I just wish mom and dad weren't all over each other all the time. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that everything's going well for them but I could live without seeing them dancing together or cuddling or whatever.

I could tell Finn was really embarassed but then again he's at that age when everything your parents do is embarassing.

Dad gave me this really tight hug when they left. I know he's worried about me, especially now that we heard about Janie Greene's pregnancy. Dad seems to be sure that I'm gonna be next. Hardly.

I've been hanging out with Erin a lot lately. She gets out of the house more now that Iona spends more time with Greg. It's about time that weasel starts taking some responsibility.

We usually have a nice meal at Betty's Diner. It's not exactly a gourmet place but the food is good and cheap. It's also the only diner on campus so all the cute guys come there which is a big plus for me.

Erin's not really looking at cute guys. She's really happy with Toby. I couldn't believe my ears when she told me that they haven't had sex yet. They've been dating for over a year now! But considering how much crap she went through with Greg it makes sense not to rush into things.

I have to admit that even though I notice all the cute guys I don't feel like acting on it nowadays. I went a bit overboard on my freshman year but now I'm just very happy with Niall. We don't see each other very often but that just makes it more special when we are together.

I can't seem to keep my hands off of him.

I'm not even close to considering a bigger commitment but right now it just feels good to be with Niall. It might not last or we might end up being together always but I don't want to worry about that. I just take life one day at a time and enjoy the ride.

Notes:
  • Title reference: Ambitions by Donkeyboy
  • Liv is really not ready for a commitment, her commitment score in ACR is -40! But she's only 19 so she shouldn't rush into getting engaged or married anyway.
  • I'm planning to bulldoze the dorms and build new ones so I moved Liv into her own house. I wanna make some changes in the university and also main hood but Deacon will have to come up with a good budget first.

  1. I always wondered what the committment score with ACR meant. Do you know where you found that information?

    Liv's dress is so cute and I am still a little freaked out that she's still seeing that guy. Wasn't she 14 or so when they started "hanging out"?

  2. Ooh I haven't noticed a commitment score on acr, where you see that at? I have a particular sim I'm really wondering about.

    As long as Liv is on birth control now (is she who u almost forgot on too?) then Deacon shouldn't have *too* much to worry about.

    I'm glad to see Erin getting out and having a good time. And Niall is quite cute, so if they decide to make a commitment later they will have cute little ones Im sure.

  3. I've never even heard of this commitment score! Is it purely based on aspiration or does it change over time? Where can I see it? LOL.

    I'm happy to see Liv is happy with Niall - they're very cute together. And I always love seeing Erin. It's great that you sent her and Liv out on a girls' night.

    Can't wait to see your new dorms! I'm planning on completely redecorating the dorms I just moved Amar, Claudia and Jacob out of so we're involved in similar projects right now!

  4. It looks like all is going smooth in the world of Liv, and she seems happy with Niall, so that's all that really counts :)

    Good luck with your dorms!

  5. Thanks for reading everyone :)

    Apple Valley, there's not much info about the commitment score at simbology, TJ just said it'll be a part of the new auto-steady/engagement system when he gets that ready.

    My notes say that Liv and Niall met when she was 15 but they only really started dating a year ago. And even after that she's been with 2 other guys so they're definitely not serious.

    Maisie, when you check a sim's stats, the commitment score is the last line of the pop-up.

    Yup, Liv was the sim I forgot to put back on BC. Fortunately I remembered it when she invited Niall over.

    Carla, there wasn't much information about the commitment score but it's a feature in the 5a version of ACR 2.0.

    I haven't even started on the new dorms. I kinda like the ones I got but dormies don't seem to like them because they never come to live in the vacant rooms. I might just change the lots to residential and back to dorms if I get too lazy to build new ones LOL

    Tessa, yeah, everything is going well in Liv's world. She's happy with Niall at least for now :)

  6. Betty's Diner is really cute. I love all the pink.

    I don't think Liv needs to look for a husband now she is young and should just enjoy college.

  7. oasisvalley, Liv is definitely not looking for a husband! She's not ready for that kind of commitment and maybe she never will be.
