january 1982 birthdays

January 1982

Rey Garcia has just turned 18 and soon beginning his last semester at high school. After graduating he will join his older siblings at college, and will study Physics in the Exact Science faculty.

round 2 ros

Sinks break - Break all the sinks in the household: Silly ROS, not much to do with it but add a clumsy trait to that sim.
Self doubt - Change aspiration for 1 day - Keep or change back: This one's nice, because the sim is very boring and this could rescue him from NPPC doom.
Small lottery prize - 300 $: They don't need it but I have an idea what to do with it.
Family reunion: I was planning to do it anyway.
PMS - Annoy the next walkby 6 times: Not like the sim at all, and I'm hoping the walkby will just be a random townie.
Party - Sleepover: My favorite one, because it's so funny. The sim's not in the sleepover age but I'll have to figure out a way to make it appropriate and interesting.
Make like rabbits (Woohoo 1 time in the next 24 hours): I love the title - I think 'Make like rabbits' means more than once.
Completely understandable fight (Lowest relationship): Not sure who the sim's lowest relationship is, or what I think of the ROS.
Master herbalist home study course - Sim must successfully grow all plants from AquaGreen Hydrophonic Garden: Never used that object since Olive Specter I think.
Move someone in (Could be a lover, friend, or relative): This household is so packed up already, I have absolutely no Idea how I'll move in another sim.

Overall, boring ROS's. My favorite is the sleepover one and my least favorite is the AquaGreen Hydrophonic Garden thing.

By the way, if you haven't seen the status page yet it's in the sidebar and updated regularly. I also updated the play schedule to the 1982-3 (Round 2) play schedule.

Outtakes: Yes, ROS can have outtakes

I think I should have kept this one, no? Much more interesting than the other ones! (I have ages in my ROS file in case I forget a certain sim grew up or such and reroll)

are you sure it's the bride ; fournier-roux wedding

November 1981

(warning: one swear word)

All of the guests are in their seats, the bridesmaids and groomsmen are in positions, and they're all waiting for the two people this day is about, the soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Roux.

hiatus, sort of

So, remember this post? I made a decision. If everything goes as planned, I won't be posting on this blog for a while. But fear not, I will be playing VT, and will be updating you guys on the doings in VT, but not here, and not in another blog. I opened a twitter account for Verre Tranquille where I will post any doings in the neighborhood, and pictures of any age ups. It's just a way for the whole thing to be a little less overwhelming for me, and when I get back to blogging, you guys will already know what is up with the characters!

The last update for a while will be posted tomorrow, the election results, since I almost have it ready.

the mayor and his wife

March 1981

Quennel Vincent is 51, Jasmin Vincent is 35, Mignon Vincent is 3; Evony Durand is 30

Running for mayor and head of Verre Tranquille has been tiring Quennel endlessly. Finding him sleeping in the living room in 7 AM isn't rare at all.

March 1981

Ninette Dupont has just entered her 2nd trimester and she's starting to show. She figured out she can't know who the baby daddy is now so she'll just have to focus on what's best for the baby. She's still house surfing and she thinks she found  a nice 2 bedroom apartment a few streets from her.

february 1981 birthdays

Rina Inoue is feeling bigger than ever now that she's entered her 2nd trimester. Her baby bump is still very tiny  but she already feels the heavy weight on her feet. Her boyfriend Fabrice Roux is being pretty responsible right now and he even asked her to move in with him once the baby's born. Rina doesn't quite trust him yet but she told him she'll consider.

January 1981

Danae Bos is 20, Devin Laurent is 20, Carel Robert is 20, Faun Laurent is 19, Veryl Dupont is 19

(Selene Bernard is 22, Leal David is 22, Brigitte and Pippin Fournier are 22, Aron Garcia is 20, Belle Roux is 20)

time for school

January 1981

Staff: Principal Halette Simon is 31, Mavise Dupont is 52, Piera Roux is 28, Carel Robert is 20.
Students: Daiki Inoue III is 12, Telfor Lefevre is 11, Letje Moreau is 10, Ricard Inoue is 10, Heidi and Helga Wagner are 10, Gisella Lefevre is 9, Jade Silva is 9, Julius Perrot is 9, Favor David is 9, Gustav Blanc is 8, Shou Inoue is 8, Rudolf Wagner is 8, Carola Moreau is 8, Quinton Petit is 7, Mai Blanc is 6, Miki Inoue is 6.

It's a brand new day in school and as soon as the bell rings all the students enter their classes and pick a seat. Ricard Inoue isn't that happy about the seating arrangement in his class. He wants to sit next to Letje Moreau, not alone in the table next to Heidi and Helga Wagner, who talk all the time and interrupt his studies! Besides, Daiki is like, really tall and he's hiding him one third of the board.

January 1981

Platt Laurent is 46, Elishia Laurent is 46, Ninon and Paien Laurent are 14 (Andy David is 17, Derrell Bonnet is 14)

Paien can't believe it but she's actually having a more difficult time studying now. Well, it's not really school but she's trying to get as many scholarships for when she'll go to college. Right now she's trying to get a charisma scholarship, which is really the opposite of anything that fits her. She usually comes off as a little rude geeky girl and that's no good first impression.

not big

January 1981

Antoine Roux is 57, Coco Roux is 57, Drago Roux is 18 (Jeannine Roux is 61, Belle Roux is 20)

Drago spends most of his days exercising or watching TV. He didn't get accepted to college and he's supposed to be studying but he just can't bother. He already got an athletic scholarship so no matter how much more he'll exercise it won't help him, only with girls which he doesn't seem to get right now.

simple kind of life

January 1981

Comfort Bernard is 44, Selene Bernard is 22 (Narcisse Garcia is 43, Halette Simon is 31)

Life is pretty mundane for Comfort. On the week days, she's always lonely. Thirteen years ago, when she divorced Loyal Vincent, she found out all her friends were actually his and she hasn't found any since, other than her daughter.

january 1981 birthdays

 Auriville and LaVergne are holding a small family event in their sun room, taking advantage of the sunny Winter the citizens of Verre Tranquille seem to have won. January marks the birthday of some of the many family members and right now it's Evony's and Zara's.

New pages!

I have posted THREE (That's right, THREE) new pages under 'Neighborhood Information' and you guys have no idea how much I would appreciate it if you could check them out and maybe leave a comment (Here if it isn't allowed there), even if it says 'Your blog sucks I hate it!' because I know that I have been extremely passive lately (Or always, actually) and I promise to fix it!

Anyway, the three pages are Family Trees, a Resident Database (Which I might link profiles to if I will live for another 200 years :P) and a post about aging in VT. I'm hoping it will be some way of getting to know the characters and neighborhood or whatever.

Also, the neighborhood is almost complete. All the sims are created and plenty of them are moved into their houses. I have 12 days until Spring Break and I am so looking forward to finishing VT and am very proud of myself for being this close and not giving up throughout the whole thing (Seriously, I think I've been on this for a year or something. I'm just so freaking slow :P)

One more thing, sorry if this post doesn't make any sense but it's 1 AM and I want to go to sleep but I'm working on the Education page and promise to post it tomorrow!

(I'm not good with keeping it to one more thing) what do you guys think of the new banner? It's Brigitte Fournier shocked of how empty apartments are when you first rent them if you didn't recognize her. Her brother Pippin made sure to move all the furniture in before she could throw a tantrum.

Layout Change

I'm much happier with this one, since it allows me to place larger pictures.

Sorry for not posting that much (Or at all), been VERY busy with school.

Actual updates and profiles will be posted in April, since it will be Passover break (Or Spring Break as it is called in America) and I will have real play time. (So far I've been limited to random families not from Verre Tranquille, townies and 15 minute neighborhood building time)

P.S. I edited the 'Meet the Girard's' and the 'Merry Christmas from the Davids' posts to fit the new layout and I'm actually very pleased with both! I did it on two different styles, so if you could please tell me which you like better I would be very happy :)
