Only two months left in our junior year and neither of us are prepared for next year. Well Cicely is more prepared, just because she’s known what she wanted to do since she was five. She’s going to be a doctor, just like Mom and Grandma.
I sit in Advanced Biology falling asleep, the cute student teacher, Mr. Millett doesn’t even help keep me alert. I’m not exactly skeeved out by blood or cells, I just don’t care about it at all.
I’m more interested in Eden Fink having a crush on Holden, who is dating Gemma. We are all in Bio together, and I keep hoping Eden will make a move with Gemma listening.
I’m stuck sitting next to Cicely’s boyfriend, Chaz, and she’s sitting next to my boyfriend Monroe. We all get along just fine, but I’m jealous when I hear them talking in the back of the room.
I’m nice to Chaz, but I don’t get what my sister sees in him. He’s so awkward and weird. If there was multiple choice for proper social interactions, Chaz would always pick the wrong answer.
As long as she doesn’t marry him, then we are okay. I don’t think ether of us have grand ideas of marrying our current boyfriends, which would make Mom relieved if she even knew we were dating.
I start daydreaming about summer break when Mr. Millett calls on me. He’s gonna be a great teacher, he already has that annoying habit of knowing when a student isn’t paying attention.
Cicely cuts in to save me, and she answers the questions. I can tell Mr. Millett isn’t impressed with Cicely saving me, but he is pleased she knows the answer. Monroe is too, he’s asking Cicely to tutor him, and while I know she’d never steal my boyfriend, I’m jealous that she could offer him something I couldn’t.
In the halls, I see Eden talking with Holden. She invited him to Mixed Tape on Friday, which isn’t exactly a place for a date, so if Gemma overheard she couldn’t completely throw a tantrum.
I really thought Holden would say yes, but he just walked off instead. There’s a rumor going around that he went all the way his girlfriend, maybe that’s why he doesn’t want Eden. I don’t think she’s even been kissed.
Monroe and I haven’t, but we make out pretty heavy up in the gym bleachers. It’s hot up there, but it’s the only place we can really be alone.
Cicely and Chaz haven’t gone all the way ether, and they like to flirt and kiss on the outside bleachers. I guess we have a thing for bleachers, maybe its a twin thing.
Mom’s been upset about something that isn’t me, and I’ve enjoyed the peace. Grandpa has started casually seeing Angie Dennis, and Mom is flipping out. She thinks it dishonors his vows to Grandma and her memory.
Her daughter, Miriam is expecting in August, and she’s thrilled to have more grandbabies. She’s told Grandpa all about her two children, and how her son never had any kids.
When Grandpa talks about her, I can hear how happy he is. He says life hasn’t been this interesting since Grandma passed, and I think it’s sad he’s been lonely all this time. Even living with us, we aren’t enough to fulfill all his needs. I wish Mom would understand that, especially since it’s her Dad.
I wonder if they’d get married, it seems odd to get remarried when you are as old as them. I don’t know what Mom would hate worse, them living together or getting married.
In our spare time we babysit our nephew Thomas. He’s six years old, and he loves when we do goofy bits for him. Cicely embraces it more than me.
Our half-brother’s ex-girlfriend, Caitlyn has started seeing some guy, so she’s been asking us to babysit whenever we are available. We both appreciate the extra money since Mom pays us nothing, so we always try to go.
We would do it even without money though, we really like Caitlyn, way more than Lewis. Plus Thomas is a doll, he’s the sweetest kid I’m sure.
Plus he’s cool too. I don’t know any kindergartners that know secret handshakes.
He’s boundless energy though. Cicely twirls him and he doesn’t even get sick. Just wants more and more.
He doesn’t like kisses anymore though, which is disappointing. I don’t think I ever liked adults kissing me, but I did enjoy kissing his sweet, chubby cheeks.
He can’t even sit still to watch television, while the intro starts, he’s clapping and dancing about.
It feels like he will never fall asleep when he finally zonks out.
At home, Mom and Dad are as romantic as ever. I wish they’d stop being so sugary, but then I’m glad they like one another.
Mom wanted us in the most advanced classes for senior year, so she invited the district head over to try and bargain our education.
He didn’t make it to dinner time, it went that poorly. Grandpa started shouting about the over-priced cost of tuition these days while I forgot about the dinner entirely, and I worked late. I’m a waterperson for the sports teams, which is an absurd thing to be paid for, but it’s at school, so I don’t need to walk anywhere. While Cicely still works at the nursing home, and she has to take the bus.
Mom was really mad at dinner time, she says I proved once and for all that I don’t care about my future.
Thankfully Dad stepped in, then Grandpa, and soon we were discussing new things. Even Mom seemed to relax as the conversation flowed.
Cicely is really disappointed she didn’t get the placement. It’d help her out for med school, or so she believes. I’m beginning to think the entire higher education is over-priced like Grandpa says. I still plan to go though, college has way more social life happening than the workforce.
When Mom and Dad head up to bed to talk, Cicely stays downstairs with Grandpa. He’s gotten into watching cooking shows, I think it’s to impress Angie. Cicely just likes to study, she doesn’t want to fritter away time when she could be learning even more.
I eaves drop on Mom and Dad. Cicely doesn’t approve, but she’s always interested in the information. They’re both disappointed about the district head, and while they’d blamed me at dinner, they seemed to think he was a jerk.
Dad wants to appeal his decision, and see if someone else could get us in the classes. He’s sure Mrs. Grimsley could get us where we needed to be.
When they start making out, I bow out. I’ve heard too much of their personal time to last a lifetime.
I fill Cicely in when she heads upstairs, but neither of us are too interested in the subject anymore. Instead we start talking about Caitlyn with Brandon, and how we wished she was our sister instead of Lewis.
I really think we should try to do some sort of trade. We haven’t seen Lewis since our fifteenth birthdays, and we are a few months shy of our seventeenth birthdays.
Cicely jokes that we should do some type of inaugural, and never invite Lewis to holidays again. We know Grandma Kenzie wouldn’t approve though, she practically raised Lewis, and she’ll always have a soft spot.
Mom doesn’t like Lewis much at all, whenever they are together they fight. But she doesn’t talk with Caitlyn much ether. It’s like she can’t betray Dad and his only son, but secretly, I think she likes Caitlyn more. If anything, I know she loves Thomas.
We move the conversation to college and dorm living. We both intend to go, and we are hoping to get a double room. It’d be weird to not sleep in the same room as my sister, although I think I’d be okay with it more than her. She’s always relied on me more heavily. I wouldn’t say anything though, I don’t want to hurt her feelings.
Plus she’s my best friend, not even Monroe compares to my twin sister.
Notes: John went on a date with Angie (Miriam’s Mom) then spoke with her a few times on the phone. He would have to roll some specific wants for me to move them forward, but he did want to go on a date, so we got that done.
Caitlyn is dating Brandon. She’s met him in the past, and then she had some wants for him so I allowed them to start seeing one another. She still wants to resurrect her Dad, Ethan, but it’s not gonna happen.
Morgan and Zeke are super lovey dovey which is sweet. And Morgan still bickers with Vivienne.
Morgan and her Dad, John want the girls to be overachievers, so they both are working after school. We will see if they can achieve it before graduating.
After the headmaster dinner failed because he wouldn’t come to the dinner table, Cicely stood up at the table to attack her Dad. I crossed it out, but what the heck?!
While playing the high school I saw Elodie and Asher both are angry with Shira. I don’t see anything in their memories to explain it ether. I’m confused on these random spurts of anger, and these aren’t all with traits as most of my sims don’t have them yet.
