I am so glad that the school year is almost over and that graduation is right around the corner.
I’m sure my sister Summer will be glad too. She’s been dating Lloyd for a while and it looks like they’re still going strong.
They are sticking together if when they go to university, which I think is stupid. You’re going to school to meet new people and have new experiences, and I don’t think you can do that if you’re still holding on to high school.
But it’s my sister’s life, so whatever. Lloyd will be attending URock with Summer and I.
To my surprise he’s really smart! Here I am thinking he’s just some jock, but he’s using his athletic scholarship to pay for his education in science or engineering. Shows what I know.
What I do know is my brother Winter and his girlfriend Artemis are at the end of their relationship, which I’m sure will be a blow to my brother.
He keeps talking about them dating while he’s at Meade College and she finishes out her senior year, but she always appears to be uninterested or changes the subject altogether.
I don’t trust her. I never have. I always see how friendly she is with Lloyd’s friend Devon.
Summer thinks I’m overreacting. She doesn’t care for her either but she thinks we should support our brother’s relationship.
I don’t care what Summer says. I still don’t trust her.
She used to badmouth Summer and I to Winter. Plus, I keep hearing rumors that she’s more than friendly with Devon.
But my siblings’ love lives were the least of my worries when my mom called me into her office.
Apparently, news of my career goal made its way to her.
Not that it was supposed to be a secret. But I didn’t offer up any info about what I wanted to do with my life.
Of course, she went into her educator’s spiel, about choosing something more stable.
But I was undeterred. I planned to have a modeling career.
That’s when the principal went out the window and Mom came in.
And the “you’re so smart” and “you’re throwing your life away” arguments came my way.
This is why I don’t tell my parents anything. If either of us go astray from their “well-laid” plans, the sky is falling.
I told her that I had different aspirations from the rest of the family, and that it’s ultimately my life to live, not theirs.
I guess my mother remembered where we were and calmed down enough to say that we would “discuss my future” later tonight with my dad. She may think that her and Dad could convince me otherwise, but as far as I’m concerned, my mind’s made up.
- I have four graduating seniors this year, all playable NPCs. They all will remain so, as Illiana is still superintendent and I like Lloyd. But after university, they’re on their own, unless they hook up with a playable.
- So the cat is out of the bag with Autumn’s career goals, and unsurprisingly, Illiana is not happy. Everyone in the Greer family is a knowledge sim, except for Autumn, who is family. Harold is an astrophyiscist; Illiana was a genetics professor at URock before her career in education. Winter and Summer are going into the “family business,” with Winter heading into the science career, and Summer heading into any of the science fields (She qualifies for medicine, science, natural science, intelligence and oceanography careers. I’ll choose one based on which major she rolls). Autumn actually didn’t roll for modeling, but her look is perfect so that’s what I’m choosing for her. She rolled highest for law enforcement but rolled well into business, medicine, counseling psychology, library science and social work careers as well. So at least she has backups.
I mayShe may be hoping for a successful modeling career, but I think she’s a realistic enough to get some university in, if not to appease her parents, which is why I’m enrolling her for university.
- Lloyd and Summer are so into each other, so I’m not breaking them up when they go to university. Imagine my surprise when he rolled highly for all of the science careers, so Lloyd will fit right in with the Greers it appears. And Winter and Artemis… sigh. They don’t roll any wants for each other, although Winter is very affectionate with her. She constantly does the bored action whenever they talk and she usually accepts the flirt interactions with Devon. So they likely will be breaking up pretty soon. I don’t see Artemis remaining as a PNPC after graduation, nor Devon for that matter. They are too boring.
- All will be joining Amanda at Alto Hall at URock, except for Winter; he’ll be headed to Meade College. Thanks for reading!
