Blue jeans

Round 15: September 2023



Narrated by Josh Cooper

I've been trying to be patient ever since Lilly told me that she was ready to have sex. I wanted to make the move last semester but I didn't want to make her feel like I was pressuring her. I did enough of that when we were still in high school. She was waiting for me outside when I came home from class one night and said that we're going to Exmoor.

We went to this little motel and had dinner. It was a tiny place and we couldn't even sit together but our other option would've been having our first time on the sofa in Lilly's dorm room. A motel might not be the most romantic place but at least we had some privacy and a bed!

After all it wasn't the surroundings that mattered. Now I understand what my brothers were talking about when they said you should have your first time with someone you really care about. I'm glad Lilly was my first and I'm pretty sure she's happy that I was hers.

I don't know if we'll be together for the rest of our lives but for now I'm happy. I know there's a lot of fish in the sea and I would be lying if I said I wasn't tempted sometimes.

Especially those days when Lilly buries herself in her books. She can read for hours.

I find myself talking with the other students that live in the dorm. The girls are all really cute but having a conversation is as far as it goes. I admit I have a wandering eye but that's the only part of my anatomy that I'm willing to let stray! I could never hurt Lilly by cheating on her.

Lilly's pretty cool about letting me borrow her computer. She even helps me with my term papers. I'm terrible at writing essays and that sort of stuff but Lilly seems to enjoy doing them.

Somehow she also finds time to spy on Zach and then report to Dawn if he's still with that photographer girl he spent time with in the spring. We barely see him nowadays though. He's really taking his studies seriously so he spends a lot of time at his faculty. He also helps Dawn and Finn by babysitting Shea sometimes so I don't think he has a lot of time to date.

Lilly may be a bit bookish sometimes but she knows how to have fun too. We often go to the pub after classes to meet friends and play pool.

We're not big drinkers but sometimes it's nice to have a beer and just unwind after listening to boring lectures all day.

We usually end up alienating other students from our table by making out. I just can't seem to keep my hands off of her for a long time.

We've been together for 5 years which at our age is a lifetime but it feels like every day there's something new.

Even if not it's not meant to be forever, it feels great right now. I honestly couldn't imagine being with someone else.

Grades, autumn 2023:
- Zach, premedicine (physics), A+, GPA 3.6
- Josh, photography (art), A+, GPA 3.6
- Lilly, literature/education, A+, GPA 4.0

Notes:
  • Title reference: Blue jeans by Lana Del Rey.
  • All the students rolled the want to write term papers this semester so A+ for everyone. It's nice to see that secondary Knowledge aspiration kicking in with Josh and Zach.
  • Josh is a Romance sim so he gets the occasional Make out with 3 sims etc. wants but they usually roll away pretty quickly. I'm interpret it the way that he notices all the pretty ladies but isn't going to act on it. He's very affectionate with Lilly and has never attempted to even flirt with another woman.
  • I've been talking about setting up a proper faculty system for BU on twitter for some time now. I've pretty much written down the basics and I plan to do a proper post about it at some point.

  1. Ah, see, you see, Josh, good things come to those who wait! I'm glad he decided to be patient and hold off until Lily was ready. :) Five years is a long time but they were pretty young when they got together.

    LOL at Lily spying on Zach and reporting back to Dawn! I find that really adorable.

    I don't know if you ever read Laura's sex styles post but from that, Josh sounds more like a Flirt or Lover kind of Romance sim.

    2. I think Josh is happy that he waited for Lilly to be ready, even if it was pretty hard for him sometimes. They were so young when they got together, I actually had to check again to see that they really started dating at 13.

      Dawn wants to know what her brother's up to, lol. He'd never tell her if he was casually dating someone.

      I haven't read Laura's post, I tried to search for it but I couldn't find it. Josh really isn't the type of Romance sim to sleep around, especially since he's in a relationship. He might flirt with other women but that's as far as it goes. It's funny because Josh and Zach have the exact same aspirations (Romance/Knowledge) but I see them as completely different types of sims.

      I'll try to get up some kind of post about the faculty system probably later this week. All I have right now are messy notes in FlashNote, lol.

      Thanks for reading. :)

    1. I'm glad about that too. They were so young when they got together but somehow they're still going strong.

      Thanks for reading. :)

  3. ^I definitely agree that Josh and Lilly are a great looking couple.They are too adorable together, with all of that affection for one another, especially in the bar scene.I'm glad that Josh decided to wait until Lilly was ready, otherwise if he was impatient it definitely could have caused some frustration and resentment.Wow, five years is a long time, so they were like 13 or 14 when they started dating.Anyway, atleast Josh was happy waiting and Lilly is probably happy that she had a her first time with someone special to her.

    1. Lilly and Josh are one of my favourite couples. They're just so darn cute together. Josh had to make the choice between staying with Lilly or having sex with some random girl. There was no way she would've given in to pressure. I'm glad he chose Lilly, hopefully their relationship continues to be strong.

      Thanks for reading. :)

  4. Josh and Lilly are cute together and seem very much their age. I'm sure they were both a lot more comfortable with each other having waited that long.

    That motel looks so cheesy, I love it!

    1. I agree that Josh and Lilly are very cute together. It was the right choice for them to wait this long although I'm sure Josh wouldn't have said no if Lilly had wanted to have sex earlier!

      I was so happy when I found that motel. It has just the right vibe that I was looking for. It's by Nilou, BTW.

      Thanks for reading. :)

  5. I'm really looking forward to reading more about your faculty system!

    It's a good thing Josh decided not to push Lilly, even though she said she was ready, now she was able to do it on her own terms.
    And even though it was in a hotel, it seemed like a very nice and special evening.
    I do love the look of the hotel :)

    1. I hope I can put the faculty system post together soon. I haven't done anything with it for the past two months!

      The motel is just cheesy enough for these kinds of actions, lol. I was glad when I found it.

      Thanks for reading. :)

  6. Dang! I didn't realize I was so far behind! I really like Lily. She's so adorable. I'm glad their first time was special... as special as it could be in a motel with a heart bed lol. I'm glad that even though he has a wandering eye, he's behaving himself. He's thinking with the right head ;).

    Very nice update. I remember reading about your faculty system on Tumblr and it looks awesome. Wondering now if you've made progress.

    Reading blogs always gives me the itch to start playing. :D

    1. Oh, I'm so far behind on every blog that I think I'll dedicate some of my weekend to reading!

      The surroundings for their first time were a bit cheesy but I think it was still better than doing it on her dorm room sofa, lol. I hope they continue to be together. They've been together for so long and they're still so young that you never know what might happen.

      I haven't made any real progress with the faculty system. I have everything written down but the real work will be building all the faculty buildings which I haven't started at all.

      Thanks for reading. :)
