three near strangers

(I’ve been having an issue where my photos aren’t showing, but only for some of my viewers, which has made it difficult for me to test. Tanja has been a huge support and help with testing my site when I request. Here’s hoping this update works proper, as I’ve tweaked a few more things in the last 24 hours plus a new theme which they said may have been a problem. *fingers crossed* and please do let me know if there are any issues.)

narrated by: Jett

The girls graciously allowed me to move in temporarily while Bea finishes college; she has two years left so it gives me some time to get my feet under me.

I believe it was mostly to help pay for the apartment, but I don’t begrudge them in the least. They saved me from having to move back in with either of my terrible parents, and for that I’m truly grateful.

narrated by: Bekah

Holden is finishing up his junior year, and soon Tim and I will be empty-nesters. Willa graduates this spring from EU, but she has zero intention of moving back home.

I finally feel like Lainey and Michael are doing well. She’s always been obstinate, refusing to embrace surprises which put Michael at a disadvantage romantically. When we were over recently to visit, I saw them embracing.

Charlie and Cara had decided it was time to move. Jake had insisted they needed a house with a garage, even though he’d quit the band, they still needed a place to practice.

another string to your bow

narrated by: Lainey

We got news that our aquarium was awarded the research funding that we requested. It meant two whole months outdoors on the ocean side of Audubon Island, exploring, tagging, really getting our hands dirty. I was listed as Lead Researcher which meant that Avery could help, but she’d have to take my orders and continue to run the aquarium.

narrated by: Lulu

Since graduating high school last year and deciding to stay at home instead of college, my life has been a constant question mark. Mom pesters me over lunch what my plans are for the day, the next week, the rest of my life!

lemonade dreams

Silas Abbott (29 years), Lainey Grimsley (27 years), Silas Abbott (1 1/2 years)

narrated by: Lainey

We managed to survive Michael joining the police force, and Silas is doing fine with the babysitter, although I still don’t think the situation is ideal. I installed a nanny-cam so I can keep an eye on her, and found that she watches an insane amount of television. However, Silas always seems happy and she does tend to his needs, so it’ll do for now.

eastborough university – westfall hall

Caleb Gray (20 years), Riley Gray (20 years), Jill Popper (20 years), Willa Grimsley (19 years), Dean Goss (19 years), Evie Jitmakusol (19 years), Jett Picasso (19 years), Scarlett Siew (18 years)

Scarlett had always believed that television did not depict reality, as such she had anticipated college being full of studious students; she had been woefully mistaken. The greatest punishment was that she had been placed in Willa’s residence hall. She’d said all along that she should have been in Miner Hall. Willa was gorgeous, thin, a model, and terribly viscous.
