Yevgenya came back from her first class in poor condition—she badly needed to go to the bathroom, she was very hungry, she was severely fun-deprived, and there was a plaintive message on her voicemail from her younger brother.
She grabbed a bowl of whatever the cafeteria worker had prepared downstairs,
and ate by herself. ‘I really need to make some friends,’ she thought.
She headed to Loungarama Leisureland, and met someone in a llama jacket outside.
Once inside, she spied a piano and, since she needed a Creativity point for class, she sat down to play.
When she’d gotten the needed point, she wandered through the venue, and showed some interest in Chazz Whippler, who’d just walked past her.
So, she went over to talk to him.
He shared most of her interests,
including Cuisine and Fitness.
But as soon as Chazz walked away, Genya decided that Sabastian Wendlund was hot.
Unfortunately, he was on his way out, and left before she could talk to him. She met another person in a llama jacket, and played pool with her for a while.
She introduced herself to a couple of other girls (‘Hey, you never know—I might meet the right girl for Yed for when he comes here next year!',’ she thought).
By the time she got back to the dorm, it was too late to call Yasiu. ‘I’ll do it tomorrow,’ she promised herself. ‘That’ll be Yosh’s birthday, anyway.’
The twins had left the studio pretty late for a school night, and it was a good thing they’d both already done their homework, because they both could do nothing more at that point than collapse into bed—Yedrek in the room he shared with his young brother,
and Yanastasia in the room she now had all to herself,
which her parents had redecorated for her.
After Derek had left for the hospital and the kids had left for school the next morning, Yulia set up for her younger son’s birthday in the front yard.
Because she knew from experience that her customers would be playing with the party equipment all day long, she decided to open the buffet early, too.
While the family was assembled later, and waiting for Yasiu to come downstairs, the home venue reached Rank 9.
Yasiu blew out his candles,
and grew up.
“So, Yosh,” Derek asked his younger son. “Any idea what you want to do with your life?”
“I think I’d like to do something in science,” the teen responded. “Like you, Dad!”
Don’t know why Genya came back from her first class in such bad shape—she used to spend the day at private school (away from snapdragons) and always had better motives than this when she came home (if I remember correctly). Maybe private school is less exhausting than college?
Yeah, ummm, don’t know about Chazz Whippler—doesn’t look like good genetics. (Readers of the previous blog made fun of Derek’s jawline, but I had faith in him, and he’s produced some good-looking kids!)
I’m starting to detect a little bit of Family Sim in Genya—consider her wish to keep her siblings together at Uni (including her arrogant younger sister), and her getting to know some girls in case any of them might be good to introduce to Yed next year. (And Family is her dad’s second aspiration). I think Sims tend to write themselves, and all you have to do is pay attention!
Again, “Yasiu” is pronounced “Yah-shoo”—hence the nickname “Yosh.” (It’s a Polish thing!)
Too funny how no one in the family is paying attention to Yosh growing up! And here I went to the trouble of having them all sit at a table and wait for him….
