makeover 1.jpg Tara: With the New Years party coming up at our place Abigaile convinced me that it was time for a makeover. I guess it has been awhile since I've done anything with my hair.

new me.jpg I didn't do a lot with my hair but I really love it.

Clothes.jpg Then Abigail said it was time to update my wardrob, so we went to the little boutique in town.

new outfit.jpg She was right... she's always right my new look is great. I love my new clothes.

lunch.jpg We celebrated with a nice lunch on the main street.

We decided it would be nice if the boys came over before the party with their girlfriends so we could spend some time together. Things didn't go as planned.

TamaraJacob.jpg Jacob and Tamara headed upstairs for some time alone.

MiriamJustin.jpg Justin and Miriam headed outside to the hot tub.

GingerKyle.jpg I thought it was just youth until I found Kyle an Ginger in the hot tub later that night during the party.

Dinner.jpgBy the time our late dinner was served everyone was all nicely dressed in their formal clothes.

Outside.jpg Just before midnight we headed outside.

New Year.jpg Everyone was outside to ring in the new year. All in all it was a great party.

The moment Justin, Jacob, Miriam and Tamara arrived on the lot they went right for their respective private places for woohoo.

Fall 2011: Sims State Downtown Campus

Fall 2011: Diana Lind is 19 and Jacob Flylar is 18.

snapshot_993a99a6_394080a3.jpg Both Jacob and Diana where both draw to the new campus of Sim State mostly for the more hands on programs especially in their chosen field of the Culinary Arts. The fact that is was located in Downtown Chantilly didn't hurt things. They where both looking forward to the last year when they get to work in a local restaurant as part of their training.

snapshot_993a99a6_393a99a8.jpg Jacob loves the view from their dorm, he loves being this close to all the high rises of downtown.

snapshot_993a99a6_195b7833.jpg Diana finds things a lot more relaxed in this dorm. It wasn't always easy seeing Frederick everyday. Here she rarely even thinks about him.

snapshot_993a99a6_3960c405.jpg The first day of classes Diana and Jacob headed to Lambton Hall where most of their classes and labs would be located.

snapshot_993a99a6_9960c45a.jpg Jacob was thrilled when he was able to start working in a real kitchen after only a couple of weeks of lecture.

snapshot_993a99a6_f960c46f.jpg Diana was really happy with her decision to leave fashion to her personal life and focus on her love of cooking. She had never been happier.

snapshot_993a99a6_f940830d.jpg Dorm life was great for both Jacob and Diana. Occasionally Tamara would come into town for a weekend, she enjoyed it a lot more with Diana and Jacob as she still didn't have many friends at her dorm.

Part way through playing my custom dorm it became very glitchy despite much testing of the dorm before I moved Jacob and Diana in so they had to move into a dorm that I imported from the regular Sim State campus.

Fall 2011: Chantilly Tech

Fall 2011: Addison Becker, Hannah Becker, Henry Pitts and Meadow Thayer are 20, Anthony Upsnott and Madison Mather are 19.

snapshot_b7d0c4ed_996dfdd9.jpg The dorm still provides all that the current students want and they love the social aspect of living together.

Hannah Study.jpg Hannah spends a lot of time in the computer lab working on her term paper and studying for her classes.

Annoy Addison.jpg Addison isn't having such a good time with some of the regular visitors to the dorm.

I win.jpg She's always getting into fights, this is her not so nice side coming out.

Group Study.jpg Once Hannah realized what was going on in the dorm she was determined to drag Addison to the computer lab with her when she went. Addison would spend most of her time playing games or chatting with friends rather than working on school work.

Early Breakfast.jpg Meadow was a lot happier this semester, she loves getting up early and having a quiet breakfast with no one else around.

Lone Study.jpg After breakfast she would find a nice quiet study place to do some reading before class. This would free up her evenings for more fun things.

Computer Lab.jpg Henry would often wait till after class to work on school stuff but he would get down to it.

play.jpg As long as Henry didn't have too much work Meadow could always drag Henry away from the books for some fun in the evening. As the two of them were looking at being a real couple this year it was nice to be able to hang out as friends and focus on just the two of them.

Cleaning.jpg Anthony decided that the housekeeping at the dorm wasn't doing a good enough job and would often be found cleaning.

Running.jpg Madison was spending more and more time in the gym working out. There was more and more competition on the sports teams.

hot tub.jpg Anthony and Madison would find some time to spend together.

Boys.jpg The boys liked it when the girls went out, it left them some time to just be guys and hang out. They did feel somewhat outnumbered sometimes.

Fall 2011: Sim State

Fall 2011: Miriam Nova, Justin Flylar, Loren Becker, Frederick Becker are 20, Brandon Becker, Tamara Newson and Diana Lind are 19.

snapshot_98d3cd74_7966048f.jpg Tamara and Frederick are the only ones left in the dorm. When Jacob had changed his mind about going to University Tamara had hoped that he would be joining her in the dorm but with the new campus in downtown Chantilly he felt that would be a better fit.

Talk.jpg Tamara tried to make friends with some of the other girls in the dorm but they alwasy seemed to be looking at her like she had three heads.

synth.jpg Frederick found himself spending a lot of time playing with the synth. He figured it would help with his goal to become a Professional Party Guest. Unlike Tamara he wasn't bothered by not making friends with the rest of the group in the dorm that year.

Study.jpg With most of their friends living in apartments this year Frederick and Tamara ended up doing a lot of studying together. Neither one of them had found themselves making friends with any of the others in the dorm.

Bored.jpg Tamara found herself very bored a lot of the time. She would just lounge on the sofa and stare at the wall. It probably didn't help with the impression the other girls at the dorm had of Tamara.

Party.jpgTamara decided to have a party, Justin and Miriam had to study for mid-terms but Brandon and Loren came over. It started our great, there was a whole group of them dancing like they had the previous year.

Really.jpg The dancing didn't last long. Loren and Brandon spent the rest of the party in the hot tub.

Finally.jpg Not long after mid-terms Tamara finally made a friend. I happend over breakfast as both of them where early risers.


New Home.jpg Justin and Miriam found a nice one bedroom apartment that wasn't too expensive. They where looking forward to having some privacy.

Quiet Breakfast.jpg Miriam loved being able to make her own breakfast in her own kitchen.

snapshot_38d1f168_18d1f35d.jpg Miriam and Justin would start everyday eating breakfast together. It was perfect.

snapshot_38d1f168_d964b8d6.jpg At night Miriam would often take advantage of the telescope on the communal balcony. It was one of the things that had sold her on this apartment building.

snapshot_38d1f168_b964bf73.jpg Justin loved the peace and quiet so he could read the paper.

snapshot_38d1f168_9964b931.jpgOne day however Miriam realized that maybe she needed a little more company that just Justin. She began to regret not goign to Tamara's party back at the old dorm.

snapshot_38d1f168_5964ba54.jpg They had the gang over for a study session and the Miriam made them all dinner.


New Digs.jpg Loren and Brandon spent a bit more on their new apartment then Justin and Miriam had, but they wanted a nicer kitchen with new appliances.

Privacy.jpg They loved the privacy they had in their new place. The did what they wanted, where and when they wanted to.

Study.jpg They loved even studying together. They would go out if friends invited them but they where just as happy to stay at home just the two of them.

Cleaning.jpg Brandon found he was doing most of the cleaning but he didn't really mind that much.

Brunch.jpg They talked about movies when they actually got around to sitting down for a meal together. Their class schedules didn't always allow for that.

snapshot_98d3cd74_99660690.jpg At the end of the day it was always just the two of them asleep. (no dreams for either of them, I don't think I've ever had sims that don't dream).
