University Break 2

University 2
Round 5

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 08-00-00-35

Dorm 1: Alisha Bryan, Ellie Ratner, Faith Fayers, Jacey Gibson, Jackie Gibson, Jane Gibson, Jessie Gibson, and Joey Gibson
Dorm 2: William Ratner, Lyle Ratner

Changes:  I am now going to switch it from two semesters (one school year) into four semesters so that they aren’t in college for too long.  To catch up with the first round, Ellie and Alisha will graduate this time and the rest will complete freshman and sophomore years.

Only two townies moved out so only Faith and Jacey got new rooms.  Ellie ran off to class and Alisha went to bed.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 08-20-49-72

It took all damn day, but Joey is the last to get his room.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 08-25-02-61

They all immediately get started on term papers and last minute skill building.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 08-32-04-60

Someone must have had a visit with the Ratner’s because the flu has followed the Gibson’s here.  Ellie shoos the cook out of the way and makes some comfort soup.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 08-33-56-77

Soon the flu is gone.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 08-41-34-52

They have free time as soon as their performance bar is maxed.  I also leave them mostly uncontrollable.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 08-47-27-69

Jane is the only one who is homesick.  She is always wanting to call her dad, Frank Gibson.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 08-53-50-03

Alisha and Jessie have started up a bit of flirting.   At one point Alisha wants to get engaged, but Jessie does not have the same want for her.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-02-15-24

Semester ends and now Alisha wants to be with Jackie.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-03-03-34

Too bad this doesn’t count for fires.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-05-02-87

Alisha continues to waver back and forth between the sisters.  She has two bolts with Jessie and three bolts with Jackie.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-28-40-40

With four witches in residence, I decided to have their free time spent spellcasting and studying.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-31-25-22

A lamp appeared, but no one had the memory of getting it.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-33-21-20

Jane had the first want to make a wish.  She chose to wish for money.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-45-29-62

Jacey is having a rest after a very busy semester.  The new group have all finished their freshman year.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-47-24-97

It’s back to the grind again.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-50-40-34

These two are having a break now that they are juniors.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-57-32-11

Lyle was visiting and joined everyone in some research.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 09-59-03-25

Alisha gets the want for a wish and chooses money also.  Soon they will have enough to hire a maid.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-01-23-91

Jessie wanted a date and the natural option is Alisha.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-05-54-33

Upstairs ACR has Jackie and dormie Ellen Hodge kissing.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-10-36-86

Joey wants the last wish.  He was quite content with his lot in life and just chose money.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-12-36-30

Later some are going to class while others are coming back from their final exams.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-26-08-45

Jackie wants 10 1st dates for her LTW.  Alisha was handy for the very first one.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-30-44-16

At the end of the dream date, Jackie falls in love and Alisha wants to get engaged to her.  Again.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-31-13-26

Jackie is not in any hurry for a relationship though and gets Ellen to go on a date minutes later.  Jackie’s wants were mostly for ALisha, so it was not a dream date.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-45-36-96

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-46-08-61

Our two oldest girls graduate with honors.  Neither one wants a party though.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-48-39-90

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-49-12-94

Inside Faith studies while the rest smustle in perfect sync.  Faith is one year higher than the Gibson girls and two years behind the older ones.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-51-56-31

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-53-25-66

Elle and then Alisha move back to Shademoor.  Neither one has any clue what they’re going to do now.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 10-58-12-49

The exodus starts for our last 6.  Jane is the first one to complete Sophomore year.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 11-01-42-22

Faith eventually completes her Junior year.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 11-02-59-53

and Joey is the last one to finish.  He starts his reading for a cleaning skill point while the others are upstairs working on research or their term papers to close us out.

Alisha, Ellie and Faith got full rides if you recall.  The Gibson 5’s tuition was paid by their dads previously.  It was pretty stressful with 8 sims in the house.  I’m just glad that Alisha and Ellie were super skilled already and I only had to deal with the others most of the time.

Dorm 2

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 11-29-48-48

Lyle and William are in a different dorm and I’m so glad to have a small household again.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 11-34-50-70

Lyle needs a cooking skill point, but otherwise the available portion of his performance bar is maxed due to the research he did at the other dorm.  William has a secondary of knowledge, so it will be easy to keep him happy since his wants are all for studying and going to class.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 11-39-19-16

The bathroom situation here is a bit perilous.  Lyle has been trapped by the girl William is talking to.  In fact, William left for class and returned while Lyle was stuck.  Luckily William drew the girl away and Lyle was able to escape.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 11-43-12-55

In case you forgot, the Ratner’s are a fairly poor family.  Even with scholarships, the boys only had about $7500 to their name.  They each owe $16,000 in tuition fees, so they don’t get to have fun like the other dorm, which has over $100,000.  I checked and realized the Ratner’s never started a bank account for these two either.  That’s pretty crazy.  They dug until they had a bit over $15,000, a stink trail that was really gross and they were about to pass out.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 11-55-59-81

Lyle decided that he wanted to skill up his cooking and therefore changed his major to cooking.  He had plans to open up a restaurant back in town.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 11-58-03-66

While Lyle is more worried about tuition and is out digging again, William is worried about home.  He calls up Rose to check in on the family.  As heir to the house, he feels it is his duty to keep an eye out for them.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-03-28-96

It was a big relief to both brothers when they were able to pay $16,000 for their first eight semesters.  They would worry about the rest next season.  The boys can now concentrate on school and not money for once.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-09-17-04

The final exams about killed Lyle, but William was raring to go and got busy writing his term paper.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-11-15-24

Lyle took a nap and a shower before he felt able to tackle his term paper.  He already couldn’t wait to graduate and be done with all this school crap.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-19-07-41

William finally had a chance to call up Faith for that dream date want he had since before he came to university.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-33-01-27

Freshman year ends on a high note.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-34-54-57

More research wants filled.  Lyle continues to study up on his cooking.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-39-57-23

William hasn’t figured out what he wants to do yet.  He spends his free time study to be an evil warlock.

Lyle:  Are you sure you want to be evil?
Will:  Yeah, the town is overrun with those goody goody Gibson witches.
Lyle:  True.  Carry on.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-47-27-63

Just before the end of the next semester, William finally starts making his throne.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-48-34-43

Lyle is jealous and angry of William all of a sudden.  He doesn’t think it’s fair that Will can just sit and skill 24 hours a day while he has to eat/sleep/potty like normal.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 12-56-56-81

Faith invited herself and William was playing chess with another girl, so Lyle thought it would be funny to steal Faith from him.  Sadly, Faith was not cooperating.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 13-06-37-36

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 13-07-00-50

Lyle just kept at her until she threatened to go to campus security.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 13-07-31-94

On the other hand, William had no clue that Faith would get upset if he flirted with another girl.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 13-08-07-33

And then she attacked him!  Will wasn’t one to hit a girl, so he let her beat him up.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-11 13-13-22-92

The boys weren’t the only ones happy that the second year was over.

Not sure what was up with Lyle the second part of the update.  He would not leave poor Faith alone.

Tuition paid:  $8,000 each.
Tuition Owed:  $8,000 each.
They have $12,000 on hand from the semester cash they receive, so it will be pretty easy to get the rest next time.
