Round 6 Pleasantview University

University Round 6.  Four new Sims are joining this round, having left two still there the last play.  It was an engaged couple.  They are:

Joseph Burb, son of Jennifer and John Burb, and Anna Broke, daughter of Dustin and Angela Broke. these two made it insanely clear that they were in love their very first day in Uni, and became engaged. Love them.

Next, we examine the new Sims from the neighborhood joining them.

These Sims are Joseph's twin brother and sister, Ida and Harry. Now this makes John and Jennifer empty nesters. I am sure one of them (or maybe both) will return to the homestead.
George McCarthy. I remember sending him thinking he and Ida where an item...but we will see. Also, I have never played George. Can you believe it? Well I am about to have my chance.
Henry Goth, heir to the moldy Goth mansion. His daddy is Alexander, and his momma is a gal from Twiki Island whom Alexander wished for from the wishing well.

First Wishes:

Anna Broke:  Pleasure - Wants to be a Celebrity Chef.  Anna is a Senior and will be graduating this play.


Anna wants to sell a masterpiece, buy a painting worth $5,000, have a party, make some money, and have tent woohoo.  That last one locked in.

Joseph Burb: Romance - Want to Become a Rock God.  Joseph is a Senior and will graduate this round. 


Woo now these are interesting wishes.  We all know the Romance Sim wants a dream date, and wants some sort of woohoo.  But he also wants Brooke to be cured of being a witch while wanting to become one himself a the same time.  Oh, and he also wants to talk with George.  Gee, I might just have to lock in that witch wish just because it is fun.

Henry Goth - Knowledge - Wants to be an Education Minister. - Freshman


Henry wants to do research with someone, max skills, go to class and do his term paper.  Ho hum.

Harry Burb - Knowledge - Son of John and Jennifer.  Wants to be Chief of Staff


Harry wants to do his homework, write his term paper, get the Hobby Plaque in Science, and go to class.

Ida Burb - Family - Daughter of John and Jennifer - Wants to reach her Golden Anniversary


She wants to flirt, have her friends Eddy Dreamer and Robert Wolosenko come to Uni, and get fit.

George McCarthy -Fortune -Wants to Become a Business Tycoon


George wants to do research with someone, make $100, go to class, and write term paper.

Gotta love fortune and Knowledge Sims with their Uni related wishes.  I am still be wildered why Family Sim Ida wanted to go to Uni..probably to major in MRS.

Let's get on with playing!

SEMESTER 1

Anna
Anna's wishes were easy peasy..would roll Go On A Date.  Being that her fiancee Joseph was around, it was no problem to keep up wishes.  Never wanted to do term paper, would influence to have it done for her.

Joseph
See above.
Dating, dating.  Would throw lots of wishes to use the dorm musical instruments as he had a Music and Dance hobby plaque in his inventory.

Henry
Seemed like a lost puppy.  Do term paper came in handy, and wanted lots of research time with other people.  He skilled heavily as a kid, so did not throw wishes to skill up.  Had max all skills locked in.  Did lots of miscellaneous stuff like go to class, ect.

George
George McCarthy's one true hobby is gaming, so it is constant wishes to play PC games, play console games.  One interesting thing happened, out of the blue...


He threw a wish to get engaged to Ida.  Checked his memories and he and Ida had dated a lot as teens.  They had a one bolt attraction.  According to 5 Wishes if a playable rolls engagement, so it was.


It wasn't hard, they had to date as the Propose/Engagement option wasnt there until they fell in love as adults.  Ida was so happy, as a Family Sim to get her man all lined up.

Ida
Before becoming engaged to George, she wanted to talk with her dad John Burb a lot on the phone, and phoned him every day.  Also wished to serve food, a couple of times a day.  Getting in practice to serve food to her family!  One of George's attractions is unemployment.  Being that Ida doesn't want to work (Reach Golden Anniversary) it seems they are a good hookup.


Being a Family Sim, she does not want to see couples break up.


So she learned couples counseling. Maybe she could be of help to unhappy Sims in the future.

Harry
Harry threw lots of wishes to play the crazy instruments, but realized a big wish fulfilled:


He fulfilled the wish to get the Science Hobby Plaque.  Go you, Harry!  It came through while he was blogging about Science.

SEMESTER 2

Anna
Still it was continual wishes to date, Joseph in particular. Easy.


Graduated, and back to Pleasantview.

Joseph
Ditto above.   :)


Graduation, back to Pleasantview.  Anna and Joseph will be moving into the Angela and Dustin Broke home.  Didn't have time to do anything with those witch wishes...will see if he brings it up again back in the hood.

Henry
Continued with the boring Knowledge Sim wishes of do research, go to class.  However at one point Anna spun up "Ask Henry To Pledge"  Didn't realize Anna was a member of the Tri Var Sorority.  Heh.  When she approached him to ask to pledge the choice wasn't there I think because they were in the dorm and not in the greek house.  So he asked her if he could join.


Only two girls showed up to admit him in, being that Brittany Upsnot had already moved out of the greek house and over to Pleasantview.  Socially awkward Henry Goth got into the girls sorority by "Imparting Knowledge" to both girls.  They found his brains sexy schmexy!

George
George stayed the course of wanting to play games.  He eventually spun up the wish to get the Hobby Plaque in Gaming, which was locked in. If he rolled anything else it was along the lines of do research, go to class.  Par for the course for a Fortune Sim. Rolled zero wishes for his fiancee, Ida Burb.

Ida
Continued wanting to serve up food, but switched from wanting to call dad to making friends with her professors.  On the first day of spring she rolled "Kiss" and "Flirt" which lucky George was the recepient of.  ASimWen hopes those two will be okay.

Harry
Just sort of floated around the dorm.  Being that the other Sims were paired off, Harry did not get the screen time by ASimWen that he deserved.  Now that two have moved out, perhaps that will change.

SEMESTER 3


Henry - Henry started to come out of his Knowledge Sim funk a little bit.  Realizing wishes for him is talking about hobby, playing the drums and doing research.  He constantly rolls Dance With Someone, but no one wants too so he gets rejected a lot.  Did not roll any romance type wishes in the springs. 

George -  Even though he is now an engaged guy, he does not throw wishes to do things with Ida.  It is play a game on a console, play chess, play a game on the PC.  Games, games, games.  He influences other Sims to do his term paper so he can play.  Still has not gotten that hobby plaque though.  Maybe it is stuck.

Ida - Now wishes to make friends with her peers, wants to serve food.  When Spring sprung, she started throwing wishes for hugs, kisses, and at one point even rolled Ask Sim on a date.  So, she and George had a nice date, getting wishes in for both of them that day. A genie lamp appeared on the lot, and Ida wished for the ability to cheat death.  After all, she does not want to leave her family before her time if she can't help it.



Harry - Harry turned a little weird.  First day of spring he wanted a kiss.  Off to the wishing well he went.  His kissing partner:


An old professor. ASimWen said no, no, no, and didn't allow him to think about her anymore.  Then a day or two later it was this young lady:


ASimWen likes her, will let it ride to see how Harry acts later.  Harry also made a wish of the Genie...


He wished also to cheat death.  Then...


He learned about Lifelong happiness.  It was a good and active semester for Harry.

SEMESTER 4

Henry
Like everyone every single morning upon waking up, Henry rolled "talk about hobby". Then when it was time for afternoon recreation, he would roll "dance with someone" but alas it was not to be, none of the women had interest in him.  He would flop every time and lose aspiration points. So he decided to make use of the wishing well and wished for friends.


Ah.  Now we know why he would flop when trying to get a girl to dance with him.  Alexander Goth's son was gay.  heh  So now he will be looking for a partner.  ASimWen has played this particular Sim before..this "Zion" in the picture.  Henry will find someone else.

George
What did George do in Semester 4?  He finally won the hobby plaque in gaming.


For about a day after getting the plaque, the wishes for doing gaming related things slowed down and George started wishing for "buy me" "buy me".  ASimWen did not cave and spend the simoleons, so he went back to game related wishes.  Easy enough.

Ida
Ida continued dishing up food every day for all the students in the dorm.  Occasionally she would roll "play with George" or "flirt", of course all that was tossed in George's direction.   Once all her studies were taken care of, and once her wishes were out of the way, she worked on her one true hobby.


Fitness.  Go you, Ida!

Harry
Harry is the consummate nerd.  Case in point:


Harry rolled out of bed early in the morning at 6 am.  Instead of taking care of the morning tasks, he logged right on to work on his Science blog.  Silly Harry.

And that is it for this Uni play!  Two years is enough to play at once.  Now it is onwards to 5 Wishes in Veronaville.  Not nearly so many lots there, will be back in Pleasantview in no time.  See ya!




Family First!  Always!~

  1. Uni sometimes can be a drag, but this sounded interesting.

  2. Wow, you played two full years! I am always glad when I complete one year... It is way too long, I think.
    I don't understand how the newcomers can be the twins of a student that was already there, why didn't they start uni all at the same time if they are the same age?
    A general question: How do you decide which Sims go to uni?

    1. They were all born close together, but I kept the twins in the hood a week longer than their brother because I wanted to see how many times they rolled "uni". Heh That is how I tell whether or not I am going to send a Sim to Uni. If they roll it and keep it several days I send them. If they just roll it every now and then and it rolls away, I don't send them.

    2. Thanks for explaining! My way of determining whether a Sims goes to uni or not is similar. If the wish does not come up, and uni won't be helpful (or essential) for the Sim's LTW (or that of his parents, such as see 3 of their offspring graduate), they won't go.

  3. I tend to play one semester in between each household. I don't get bored of Uni though, love it when I play it, sometimes it's the thought of it I don't like so much. :D
    I think I played George in my Legacy wayyy back when.. 2005? haha. He sure loves his games. :)
