Round Four University Boggs Hall Dorms - Graduation

Here we are in Uni. If there is a part of the game I don't like, this is it. But I play it because so much good can happen here for the future development of the character. But when it comes to 5 Wishes, it can get extra monotonous.

I actually played these guys for a couple of Uni days before I remembered to get their beginning wishes for the blog. But rest assured, everyone wanted to date.  Of course. Here it is at this point in time about halfway through first semester of junior year.

The first couple is Beau Broke and Brenda Wong.  Beau and Brenda have been dating since they were teenagers. 

Beau Broke
Beau is a Romance/Knowledge Sim.  His Knowledge subaspiration was strong enough to send him to Uni.  He STILL wants to go on a date, reach top of music and dance, win a dance contest, buy a synthesizer, and buy a stereo that costs at least $2,500. 

Brenda Wong
Brenda is a Popularity Sim and wants to smustle dance, be BFF with dormie Vince Landchild, get a skill point in anything, invite someone over, and meet someone new.

The second couple is Beau's brother Charles Broke, and Frances Barrett.  Frannie came home with Charles on the bus one day when they were in elementary school, and have been in love ever since.

Charles Broke
Charles is Romance/Fortune and wants to make out with three Sims,  meet someone new, win a dance contest, make friends with dormie Chuck Inada, and invite someone over.

Frances Barrett

Frannie is a Popularity Sim and wants to smustle dance, talk about hobby, play the violin (which was purchased and put into the dorm to fulfill somebody's wishes), play the base, (same thing) and dance with  someone.

The last couple is my favorite, John Caliente and Mary Pleasant.  Oh my goodness, I just love these two.  John's mom is Nina (Caliente) Landchild, and his dad is Don Lothario.  He is the first baby born in Pleasantview after Charles Broke.  Anyone who has ever played Pleasantview knows that Brandi Broke is pregnant when first opening the lot.

John Caleinte
John is a Fortune/GCS Sim.  He wants to make deans list, do home work, influence someone to clean, play marco polo, and make a GCS for Charles.  You will find out why in a little bit.

Mary Pleasant
Mary is MarySue and Daniel Pleasant's daughter.  I normally don't let that couple have any more children because they did such a miserable job with Angela and Lilith, but Risky had other ideas.  Turns out I really love Mary.  Anyway, Mary is a Knowledge/Romance Sim.  She wants to see a ghost, do research with someone, woohoo with three Sims, have picture taken with John, and have public woohoo with three Sims.

The first thing I notice is that I can fill up Charles's aspiration points.  I was lead to look at that because Mary congratulated Charles on this:

Platimum Lifetime Aspiration
Charles is now and forevermore happy.  Whenever this happens, I don't feel so motivated to work for the Sim's LTW.  I am not really sure how I feel about being able to make the Sim reach platinum without getting their LTW.  But playing 5 Wishes, this is more likely to happen then when I am not using that style of play.  I NEVER have a Sim wish for it with the Genie.

John Caliente and Charles Broke
 John finally finds someone in the dorm besides the llama mascot who is happy to talk about grilled cheese with him. Good for your Charles! This forced John to spin up a wish to cook GCS for Charles.  However, John is looking like a little but of a wuss here.  I am not sure I like that.

Mary Pleasant, Beau Broke, dormies Vince Landchild and Melissa Day
There is so much attraction going on all the time in this dorm it is ridiculous.  Mary finally approaches Beau and lets him know how she feels about him.  Hmm...then Vince relates to Melissa how he feels about Mary.  heh

Brenda Wong, Charles Broke, Beau Broke and John Caliente
All the guys rolled a wish to go fishing, as did Brenda.  So off they went to the park.  Interesting to see what is rolled up when they aren't allowed to date all the time.

Townie Danielle Rusewicz, Beau Broke, John Caliente, Tyson Ebadi (Brandi Broke's H), Brian Jordan, (Sharon Wilkie Jordan's H), Charles Broke, and Brenda Wong
John gets hungry and decides to cook some dogs.  As usual, he didn't get any from the first round 'cuz other people in the park came and ate them all up.

Frannie Barrett and Charles Broke
Frannie and Charles have lunch together.....sort of. 

John Caliente and Beau Broke
Uh guys...I know you love playing with those mp3 players that you wished for...but time to get busy fulfilling other wishes.  Then it is time for term papers.

Charles Broke and some GCSs
Now I found this interesting.  Charles Broke spun up a wish to eat GCS.  While it isn't different for a Sim to have a craving, I found it to be notable that he wished for this after becoming John Caliente's GCS confidante.

Mary Pleasant and Frances Barrett
 Mary wins $760 in a gaming competition against Frannie, fulfilling a gaming wish.  This puts her over the top in $10,000 in earnings, giving her the cash memory.  Frannie was not happy about losing!

Starting their senior year, wishes sort of shifted to more adult things.

Beau wants to top out Music and Dance, Brenda wants to be Big Sim On Campus, (almost there)  Charles wants to get his term paper written, Frannie wants creativity 9 and to win a cooking contest, John spun up everything GCS, and Mary wants to be saved from death graduate with honors.

Amazing what they roll up when I don't let them date.  Heh

Frannie (Frances) Barrett, Sharlene Royce and Prof. Jason Shibata
Frannie headed out to Sue's kitchen where she won the cooking contest with cheesecake.  I always have my Sims make that, in case a pregnant Sim happens to come in and eat some of it.  heh.  While there, she completed her ninth cooking skill fulfilling a wish, and then she rolled 'learn how to make GCS'.  This is being very fruitful wish-wise for her.  It seems all John Caliente's friends are rallying behind him and learning all they can about GCS.  :)

Woah!  Beau throws a rare wish to get a charisma skill point.  After he gets it, he spins up this???  This is Andrea Butler, the cheerleader.  I have never seen these two react to each other.  GAWD Beau, you need to throw these type wishes for Mary!!!  *ASimWen takes a look around the dorm to see if Andrea is there. *

Beau Broke and Andrea Butler
Yup, she was hangin' out upstairs.  Uh-huh.  Let's stir this pot a little.  Beau's steady, Brenda, is downstairs scarfing down some delicious lunch lady mac-n-cheese.  Beau approaches Andrea.  After some flirting, a kiss, and some classic dance, Beau had enough aspiration points to influence Andrea to write his term paper, fulfilling wishes the whole way.  The two fall in crush.  When the term paper is written, Beau remembers he has a girlfriend, and spins up a wish to talk to her.  Me thinks...regret???

Brenda Wong and Charles Broke
What was Brenda interested doing?   Having parties.  Pulling pranks, hanging out with Sims.  Yeah.

Florence Delarosa, Brenda Wong and John Claliente
Brenda gets her tenth best friend during this party, fulfilling a major wish and pouring 15,000 aspiration points into the coffers.  Yay!

Frannie Barrett, Charles Broke, John Caliente, Beau Broke, Brenda Wong and Mary Pleasant
Right smack in the middle of the kids' senior year, the dorm gets buggy.  Ugh.  Can't enter, game crash.  So, the kids move out, I doze the dorm, and insert a new dorm in its place.  Yeah.  Of course doing this shook up everyone's wishes.  The best thing about this dorm, is all the dormies that moved in are SS members.  :-)

Brenda Wong and Dorian Kauker
 The Pop Sim is the first one to make it into SS.  No surprise.

Mary Pleasant
Mary's dominate aspiration of Knowledge finally kicks in and she wants to skill, skill, skill.  She maxes her skills, fulfilling a huge wish. 

Beau Broke, Marsha Louie and Brenda Wong
Dormie Romance Sim Marsha Louie makes no bones about noticing Beau, right in front of his girlfriend.  heh

Beau Broke and Marsha Louie
Beau's girlfriend Brenda wonders off to class, and he swoops in and flirts with Marsha, fulfilling a wish.  Uh-huh.  Beau, you are such a stud.

Ian Kosmokos, Magnus Wheeler, Mary Pleasant, Neal Leong
Mary had her trip to the Secret Society next.  Who should she meet up with but Neal Leong.  Neal was Lucy Burb's crush in University, and made many visits to her bedroom back in Pleasantview.  But in the end Lucy chose Komie Tellerman.  At any rate, Nina (Caliente) Landchild must have made quite an impression on Neal, as he brought up the subject right away with Mary.

Cow plant and Frannie Barrett
When Frannie had her turn with the SS she decided to feed the cow plant.  She received nature enthusiasm for doing this. 

Right before graduation. Charles started throwing wishes for all those dogs his mom (Brandi Broke Ebadi)  is raising.  *sigh*

John Caliente
And of course John...the ever vigilant GCS fan could be kept happy by simply cooking GCS for everyone.  Even if he did not currently show any GCS wishes, they would sometimes spin up when he started cooking them.

Mary Pleasant
Finally graduation came.  Everyone graduated with 4.0, except for Mary, who had 3.9.  I don't know how that happened.  heh  Mary was the last one to leave the goodness, she looks good in anything. 


Well it took me forever to play two Uni years.    When not allowed to date, it was mostly music type wishes.  Charles Broke, Brenda Wong, and Mary Pleasant received their plaques.  Beau did not, even tho he kept a wish for it.  He was busy scouting the area for chicks.  I forgot to dole out the cash to the graduates, there was around $75,000.  However I remembered about the money right before John and Mary left on the lot.  They got $42,000 in Uni loot stuffed into their backpacks.  It isnt' like Uni Sims have a hard time making money anyway. 

This also signals the end of round 4.    Scoring:

Keep on Simming, everyone!  Now it is on to Veronaville!



  1. What a great update! Uni can be hard when you are itching to get on. I'm playing it inbetween each house now to move things along. (Usually just one semester per house, sometimes 2).

    So- wow. Beau the romancer! He's doing well not to get caught by Brenda. I think as long as she's not in the room he can get away with it. Not woohoo though, that seems to be a dealbreaker.. strange huh?! :D

    Charles and Frannie are a cute couple, Charles really is like Brandi in looks. How funny that he's John's chief GCS maker! haha. It's so nice when a GCS sim finds someone else who wants to chat the cheese.

    Mary and John, wow, yeah, my fav couple of yours too! I can't wait to watch their lives now they've graduated.
    I think I only once let Mary-Sue and Daniel have more kids, wish I'd done it this time now!

    The BSOC thing, I have an unwritten rule that any sim who gets into the SS must become BSOC- I mean you have all those sims there right? I usually put some smart glasses down and it takes such a short time. Of course sometimes I forget about the SS until almost the last year, but then it domino's through the sims in the dorm which is nice.

    Ok.. essay over.. Loved it all Wen and looking forward to your next Veronaville chapters! :)

    1. I am wondering if Beau will be another Don Lothario! His romance sim brother Charles didn't seem to roll wishes for other girls like he did. Only once did Charles do so, and he didn't have a chance to do anything about it because Frannie was keeping sharp eyes on him.

      I really like Charles and Frannie too. I don't know how much GCS he will be able to make for John since they have graduated. hehehe He will have to invite John over to his house, he comes up on the play list before John's house.

      Mary and John. I just don't feel the love there between the two, but I like them anyway~ Mary doesn't have the patience to listen to any GCS tales, at all. She plugs her ears! LOL Every now and then John would roll up 'flirt with Mary' and things like that. hehehe. She kept going after Beau. Funny thing, there were 3 bolts between Mary and Charles too, but they didn't constantly seek each other out, like Mary and Beau did.

      Moving on to Veronaville!

    2. Oh wait...that total points above is not correct. I forgot to add in Uni points when I totaled out. It is actually 170. I had to add Frannie and Brenda to the scorecard too.

  2. Finally got caught up on your blog here again. Looks like everything is going great for you in this neighborhood. Reading about it makes me want to try my hand at it, but so far I'm resisting.

  3. What a long post!

    I think I recognize Frances Barrett as a townie child. As Jaiden Thompson, I made her a sister to Nicole, who found each other after getting free from the social worker's prison, where townie children live. I also had them together with... Brenda Wong. Does Frances have green eyes?

    Mary Pleasant looks very attractive in the black secret society outfit.

    With the brown furniture and rather dark walls, the Boggs Hall leaves an impression of a high class home/hotel. I don't like Univesity either, and don't remember seeing this residence. I somehow remember all of College as cold & white, like the new home on the outside.

    While you could say that Angela received only a little from her parents, and they contributed nothing good at all to Lilith, both of them are the best characters in teh whole sims universe!!11 It's understandable that people act as poor parents the first time around, just as we do when we get our first computer or other machine, which often ends up broken. Thank you for giving them another chance.

  4. I must say I love Uni, it's relaxing to play, and easy with the wishes!

  5. Uni is typically a pretty chore like time for me too. Sometimes I can enjoy it, depending on the sims, but so much of the time it takes far too long to get through for me. :) These guys are doing well though, and it's interesting the way wishes roll once again. :)
