Quando, quando, quando

Round 4: University (Alexandra)
last update/next update

Alexandra Hayes starts university right after Rianna Whitfield has graduated. She's still determined to pursue a career in the gaming world and decides to major in Mathematics.

Alexandra dumped her highschool sweetheart before she left for college so she's free to meet new guys. One in particular, Quinn Myerson, catches her eye immediately.

Lexie doesn't waste time when she sees something she likes. She makes her move on Quinn quite quickly and he's completely smitten.

There's something that's been on Lexie's mind a lot lately. She feels like she needs a closure for the whole Benjamin Barnes incident. She's not sure whether she loves him or not.

Lexie calls Benjamin and invites him over. When he arrives she realizes that whatever feelings she might have had for him - they're all gone. They decide it's best to be just friends and nothing more.

Lexie feels like she's finally free and invites Quinn for a breakfast at Betty's Diner.

Lexie can be quite persuasive when she wants to. She uses her influence on Camille Calhoun and gets her to write her term paper!

It's obvious that Quinn isn't the only one who finds Lexie attractive. In her opinion a little flirting never killed anyone. Luckily Quinn feels the same way and doesn't get furious.

Lexie loves the attention that she gets from Quinn. He makes her feel like she's the only woman in the world.

  • I'm using a new system for playing uni. I play one semester quite normally except for making the sim take the final exam sooner. Then I use cheats and mods to give them a grade and make them take the final exam again. That way I don't get bored with uni so easily.
  • I had planned getting Lexie together with Benjamin. But she's just not that into him. So much for my plans ;)


  1. Hey, I think I recognise that dorm! Is that the one from Seriously Amused Sims that I've got at Suffolk? I love that dorm.

    I'm glad she's got some closure with Benjamin. I was wondering if you were going to lead anywhere with that. You got a lot of mileage out of that chance encounter on a community lot, didn't you? I love it when stuff like that happens.

  2. Yeah, playing uni can get to be a real drag. Kinda like going on vacation (BV)- it gets real old real fast.

    Right now, I'm pretty happy with playing uni at 2 days per semester right now - I use the extra day for them to earn some badges or for skilling.

    And I've stopped playing match-maker for the sims too - with ACR - anything goes these days!

  3. I thought Lexie would pick up with Ben too once she reached college. Guess not, lol. Oh, well. She's still young, she'll find someone. Until then have some fun.

    I still do the two day a semester. That way I don't get bored and they finishe faster. YAY And with ACR anything does go. Man, I had some sims really switchin gup lovers this round. Now I just have to post all of it, lol.

  4. Lexie picked Quinn all by herself thanks to ACR. So I'll let them have their fun and who knows, maybe I'll make him a playable too, there aren't really any eligible playable bachelors. I was kinda bummed that she wasn't attracted to Benjamin anymore. She just shrugged when I made her "check him out".

  5. Carla, you were right about the dorm. It's the english boarding school from Seriously Amused Sims. I love it too!
