*huge birthday post! you’ve been warned!*
Isla Andersen celebrates her birthday this summer. She isn’t a fan of subdue things like her big sister Ainsley, and education is not high on her list of important things, but she’s looking forward to more freedom as a teen now. She intends to spend her time lazing around and goofing off, just not at home.
There are three high school graduations this year, Lulu Grimsley graduates high school with a C average, and she has no desire to extend her scholastic career, so she is skipping college. She may have wanted to be a dancer, but her older, more perfect sister Rachael already got that one covered, so for now she’s just floating as she continues to work at Marcello’s pizza joint, and dating her boss, Clayton.
Milo London graduates with an A average, and scores a 43 on his SAT. His parents are greatly disappointed in his score, both of his sisters scored a 60 and a 50, and they expected even higher from him. They blame all his time surfing for his poor grades, but Milo isn’t concerned about college, like everything in life, things have come easily for him and he expects no different at university. He intends to be the third generation London lawyer, and is studying Political Science to get there. He’s been assigned to Miner Hall.
Scarlett Siew graduated as Valedictorian for her class with a 51 SAT, she is eligible for a half-ride scholarship, much to her parents excitement. Although, 50% off a college education is still more than Rebecca and Quint can afford, so Scarlett is paying the rest with loans.
She decided on a Economics Major with Business being her focus; she’d rather be a country singer, but Business is sensible and that’s her plan. She’s been assigned to Westfall Hall.
Simon Millett is the last graduate from Jefferson High this year, he scored a 37 SAT, and is at peace with the score. He allowed himself to slip up his senior year with the death of his Grandma Norma, but he still managed to score high enough for acceptance. He’s decided to major in Economics with the intention of being an educator when he graduates. He’s been assigned to Miner Hall.
Five students graduate from Eastborough University, though some just barely. Zilla McCarthy graduates with a 4.0 GPA, top of her class. She intends to have a career in the Natural Science field, but feels that she can’t get a good start with her Dad being discredited in the exact same field. So she is intending to move to Arizona and make a clean start, she is hoping her boyfriend will join her.
Elias McCarthy graduates with a 3.6 GPA and a mostly useless degree to boot. He went to Eastborough only because his girlfriend at the time, Rachael wanted him to join her. They broke up freshman year, but he stuck it out, and is glad that he did. He’s moved back in with his parents to work on the farm that he intends to take over one day, and is continuing to date Caitlyn Traver.
Caitlyn Traver barely scrapped by to graduate, a semester on academic probation nearly did her in, and with the help of some “friends” writing her term papers, she managed to say goodbye to EU with a 2.8 GPA. She’s moved back home with her Dad, and hopes to find a better place for them all to live. She is set to start working as a Social Worker, or at least someone who pushes paperwork in a Human Services office.
Lewis Traver also faced academic probation after his drunken bar fight, but managed to graduate with a 2.5 GPA. He’s gotten a position as an IT Intern, which isn’t as great as he hoped for, but is at least in the field he wanted. He’s currently renting a couch from buds, Julius and Aidan, much to Perla’s annoyance.
Lastly, Rachael Darling graduated with a 3.5 GPA, and has been hired as a backup dancer, it isn’t quite as glamorous as she expected seeing she excelled and was sought after during college, but she’s happy to have her foot in the door. She’s adjusted her SimBook relationship status to: It’s Complicated and has moved in with Caitlyn and Caitlyn’s Dad, she wants to continue to help Caitlyn with Thomas.
Maeve Gavigan is newly minted in the pregnancy timeline, just one month along she’s already set up her fortress in the Gavigan/McCarthy apartment, and will likely be ushering Oliver out by the collar of his shirt if he doesn’t get a hint soon. Baby Gavigan needs that second bedroom, and will arrive on the scene in February.
Lorelei Krouse is two months pregnant with their second baby, and already feeling wrecked over the entire ordeal. She doesn’t regret her decision to have a second baby though, and is relishing her time with Penelope before there are two. Lorelei is due in January.
Alicia Brewer is thrilled that Percy will have a sister or brother to grow up with, when they married a bit later in life they weren’t sure if any children would be in their future, and soon they’ll have two. She’s three months pregnant now and feeling great in the honeymoon phase of the process. Alicia is due in December.
Lastly, Elise Schehl has entered the huge-as-a-house stage, and is very anxious for this baby to arrive. It took more than two years to conceive this baby, and she wishes she enjoyed the pregnancy more, but after a miscarriage scare, a bed-ridden first trimester, and being huge at seven months pregnant, she really just wants to hold their baby in her arms and call it a day. Elise is due in August.
Notes: So many babies!! I’m excited to see what everyone has and the genes they pass on!
I was conflicted on Simon’s career, he matched well for anything in the science field, but also education, which I need some new teachers… In the end, he rolled the want for an Economics Major, and that works for an education focus, so it’s decided! One day students will call him Mr. Millett, so cute!
Caitlyn *only* graduated because she rolled consistent wants for someone to write her term papers and assignments… and sometimes she found someone who would, and other times she didn’t, so not a great GPA. By her senior year, Caitlyn was really just over the entire college experience.
Isla is a pleasure sim, and already wants to sneak out of her house…
Caitlyn Traver – 2.8
Elias McCarthy – 3.6
Lewis Traver – 2.5
Rachael Darling – 3.5
Zilla McCarthy – 4.0
