Whew, that was quick! It moves along much faster when I play each household only once per round and use seasons instead of months! I'm loving it and I feel that it's moving at a pretty good pace, not too fast and not too slow. Anywho, a few pretty big things occurred this round, the biggest of all in my opinion being the opening of Crystal Bay Academy!
Births: Taylor Peterson, Gina DeLorne, Layla Frader, Lauren Frader
Engagements: Nickoli Frader and Amanda Lancaster
Marriages: Nickoli and Amanda Frader
Openings: Styles by JP (owned by Janet Peterson), City Hall (owned by Tyson Carmichael), Crystal Bay Academy (owned by Tina Leary) , D's Place (owned by Dimitri Ivanov)
New Residents: Ariyo Mikasi, Kuo Mikasi, Dimitri Ivanov, Anya Ivanov, Halinka Ivanov
Starting the next round, I'm going to roll two ROS. Hopefully it won't be anything that will devastate my sims right out of the gate, but we'll see! I haven't rolled them yet so who knows. Also I will have 3 playables (Halinka Ivanov, Cassie Carmichael, and Angelo DeLorne) and 1 non-playable playable(Carla Harris) going off to Crystal Bay University. I've been waiting to have some teens to send so it should be great! I'm considering sending Payton Sneiff off as a playable since he caused such a scandal. I think he might be fun to play and he's the same age as the rest so I might send him as well. I doubt he will remain playable after college though.
I also noticed that some of my founder names are going to disappear......I had 4 freaking girls born this round! The DeLornes are ok because of Angelo, but Nickoli may not see his name passed on. I'm hoping he and Amanda will want at least one more and I hope it's a boy! Janet also may see the Peterson name snuffed out since little Taylor may not be the rolling stone her mom is! The Ivanov's will have the same problem since Halinka is their only child, but they aren't a founding family so it doesn't bother me as much. We'll see what happens, but it's not looking good. I wanted the founding names to last at least 2 generations.....is that too much to ask?!
One last thing: I'm VERY fascinated with the way that Laura does her skeleton stretching and want to try it out for myself.......so some sims will be alittle taller this next round. They're all either teens or children so we'll just call it a little growth spurt!!!!
