Blueberry Island – Spring 4 – Uni 1

Hi everyone!

This update is quite a long one (a lot happened), so let’s dive right in and visit the currently only dorm of Robinson University! Last season, Molly, Jacob and Alvin moved into a little rental home on campus, so we’re now left with three students.

Here’s Thalia Harris, who has three semesters left. She’s a Philosophy major and her LTW is to Max all 7 skills.

Then we’ve got Robin Burke, who has four semesters left and has also chosen a Philosophy major. She wants to be a Media Magnate.

Last but not least there’s Robin’s twin sister Amber Burke, who’s a Drama major because she wants to become a Prestidigitator.

At the start of the new semester, nobody really had much studying on their mind. My general rule is that I make them all go to class and other than that I just let them study (or write papers or do assignments) if they roll the wants for it.

Amber’s sort of dating Trina Wheeler. They only have one bolt, but they’re very cute together, so I’d like to see where it goes.

They’re all over each other, even with only the one bolt. Amber’s turn ons are fitness and hats, and Trina’s turn ons are swimwear and hats.

Students, am I right?

Robin was still casually seeing a professor.

They fell in love with each other, but we’ll see what will come of it because I don’t think Robin is up for something serious. Or wait – I said that and then she rolls both the want and the fear to get engaged to professor Amin (who has the same name as her father by the way). I don’t think she knows what she wants yet.

I decided to have Thalia give Sterling a makeover. They fell in love last rotation and have three bolts, so it’s bound to last, and I think he could look a lot better if he just got a better haircut. I mean, sure, he has an awful nose and his bone structure isn’t great, but a good haircut can work wonders!

snapshot_45f2b25a_cb9394b0

See? This looks pretty good!

snapshot_45f2b25a_0b9394fd

Now I actually think they look cute together <3

snapshot_45f2b25a_eb939661

The girls also liked to all hang out together.

snapshot_45f2b25a_6b939741

And then… chaos. A tree caught on fire during a thunderstorm. I figured the rain would put it out, but then it stopped raining. Robin went to extinguish the fire, but then she caught fire herself.

snapshot_45f2b25a_2b9397a0

She died. She actually died. I considered quitting without saving, but then I’d have to play the entire semester again and I’m also not a fan of quitting without saving, so I went with it. But it did make me really sad, because I loved Robin.

snapshot_45f2b25a_8b9397b5

Rest in peace, Robin. I’m sorry.

snapshot_45f2b25a_2b93985f

I’m so sorry I killed your twin sister :(

snapshot_45f2b25a_4b939892

“Dad? Is Mum there? Please sit down, I have to tell you something…”

snapshot_00000091_cb9399d4

Robin’s grave was moved to Blueberry Island Cemetery. The entire community was shocked and devastated. Including me – this hasn’t happened in my game for… years.

snapshot_45f2b25a_4b939a5c

Amber threw herself into her studies.

snapshot_45f2b25a_ab939a8e

But mostly she was just very, very sad.

snapshot_45f2b25a_6b939b06

She and Thalia both passed their exams, but neither of them felt very happy about it.

snapshot_45f2b25a_4b939ba0

Every time Thalia goes on a date with Sterling, the first want she rolls is to fall in love with Jacob (Dawson, her high school boyfriend). I’m not sure what to do with that!

snapshot_45f2b25a_6b939c47

At the start of the new semester, another set of twins moved into Burke Hall: Carrie and Ella Harris, Thalia’s little sisters. They both declared Literature as their major, because apparently they’re those kind of twins. No, truth be told, it’s a bit of a coincidence: Carrie wants to top Entertainment, and Ella wants to top Adventurer, and Literature works well for both of those.

snapshot_45f2b25a_0b93a33b

I predict a lot of Sims on Blueberry Island are going to experience their first Woohoo in this photobooth. Kind of gross if you think about it.

snapshot_45f2b25a_6b94e289

Amber is still dating Trina, but she has two bolts with Lexie here, one of her roommates. I just want to see if there’s something there!

snapshot_45f2b25a_ab94e2b2

I created a memorial for Robin in the spot where the fateful tree once stood.

snapshot_45f2b25a_eb94e2cc

Thalia is starting her last semester! She’ll be the first to graduate, even though Jacob, Molly and Alvin should technically be first. They have fewer semesters left, but they get played later on because they moved out.

snapshot_45f2b25a_cb94e335

Lexie likes Amber too, but the thing she finds most attractive is that Amber’s unemployed, which is bound to change after she leaves college. Oh well, let’s see where this goes – I like Lexie!

snapshot_45f2b25a_2b94e41f

She responds well to Amber’s flirting!

snapshot_45f2b25a_4b94e554

And then ACR took over from me. I think they like each other! Lexie and Amber both had crushes after their autonomous WooHoo.

snapshot_45f2b25a_8b94e58e

Reason enough for them to go on a date.

snapshot_45f2b25a_cb94e627

She definitely can’t have Trina over anymore, that’s for sure… Lexie would throw a fit – she’s smitten. She didn’t respond negatively to any interactions.

snapshot_45f2b25a_ab94e6bf

Yep, this is the right match! When the date was over, Amber still rolled wants for Lexie. She hasn’t done that with Trina. I do feel bad for Trina, though.

snapshot_45f2b25a_cb94e88b

Ella met Simon Parker. They only have one bolt, but Ella has the want to go on a date, so…

snapshot_45f2b25a_6b94e907

Her twin sister Carrie met a guy with the same hair as Simon, Dawson Ebadi. They have two bolts! That has definite potential. They really hit it off too, but then Carrie had to go to class.

snapshot_45f2b25a_8b94e9dd

Amber and Lexie fell in love through some more autonomous photobooth Woohoo.

snapshot_45f2b25a_6b94eb14

Thalia graduated with honours! She has a GPA of 3.8. Studying wasn’t a big priority for her at first, but as she neared the end of her studies, her Knowledge aspiration started to show itself and she wanted to graduate with honours.

snapshot_45f2b25a_ab94eb84

She decided to move back to the island right away. Our first college graduate! That also means that the Science career is now officially unlocked.

snapshot_45f2b25a_ab94ebdb

We’ll see Thalia again at the end of the rotation – she still has two days left to be played.

snapshot_4b94ed0c_8b94ed0d

Thalia moving out to be her own household (she moved into one of the apartments on Legacy Lane) also means there are now 20 households – that means I can build another NPC community lot!

snapshot_00000091_ab98ccb1

In my excitement, I immediately built a beach lot for all of my Sims to enjoy when summer rolls around next season. There’s also a little restaurant that will fulfil the need of a place to eat that’s more casual than Walker’s. Anyway – back to uni!

snapshot_45f2b25a_0b98d19a

The first thing to happen during the next semester was another fire… CARRIE, DON’T YOU DARE GET CLOSE TO THAT.

snapshot_45f2b25a_8b98d1d6

Luckily, this time the fire brigade did come on time.

snapshot_45f2b25a_6b98d3ef

Ella tried her luck with Simon Parker, who she only has one bolt with, but we’ll see if they’re a fun couple or not. Plus, she really wants to kiss someone.

snapshot_45f2b25a_2b98d49e

ACR sure has big plans for them.

snapshot_45f2b25a_2b98d516

Yep, it seems like these two are golden. And they haven’t even gone on an actual date yet. In the background, you can see Carrie trying to chat up Dawson Ebadi.

snapshot_45f2b25a_8b98d558

I let Ella go on a date with Simon, which is when I found out he’s a Romance sim. Maybe not the best combination with Ella, who’s Family…

snapshot_45f2b25a_0b98d5a1

Carrie and Ella really do everything together.

snapshot_45f2b25a_2b98d65a

These two are very sweet together, though…

snapshot_45f2b25a_0b98d7f5

But the next day, she meets Phoenix Raymond, who she has two bolts with.

snapshot_45f2b25a_4b98d854

He’s very shy, which immediately makes me like him more!

snapshot_45f2b25a_4b98db21

This is Amber’s last semester and I’m excited for her to strike out on her own!

snapshot_45f2b25a_8b98dbdf

Carrie liked Dawson as a friend just fine, but no more than that. She had now set her sights on her dorm mate Peyton Micell!

snapshot_45f2b25a_2b98dc18

I have a soft spot for him because I married him into my very first legacy challenge.

snapshot_45f2b25a_eb98dd83snapshot_45f2b25a_0b98dd96

Amber graduated with a 3.6 GPA and was happy to leave university behind. She was extremely sad that her sister wasn’t with her to join the real world, but she was also determined to make something of herself. We’ll see her again later on this rotation!

snapshot_45f2b25a_8b98e247

Ella asked Phoenix out on a real date, and I found out that he’s a knowledge Sim. Much more suitable! Also, I like these two together waaay better.

snapshot_45f2b25a_4b98e319snapshot_45f2b25a_2b98e3c8

Yep, this is a done deal.

snapshot_45f2b25a_8b98e516

I also realised that Carrie hadn’t had her first kiss yet when she kissed Peyton!

snapshot_45f2b25a_6b98e680

It seems like Sterling has moved on now that Thalia has moved out… I never did really like those two together, even though they are three bolters.

snapshot_45f2b25a_0b98e716

Carrie and Peyton fell in love.

snapshot_45f2b25a_eb98ea01

And with both sisters passing their final exam of Sophomore year, we end our visit to Burke Hall! Next up, more uni, but a much quieter household, hopefully.
