Community Sim #3: Eyecolor & Personality Continued

For Community Sim #3, we’ve decided: gender (male), skintone (see below), hair color, hair style, facial hair, his aspiration (deviance) and his lifetime goal (chief of mischief). So, this guy spends his days annoying people and playing pranks.

We’ve determined that CS3 wears mostly athletic clothes or sweaters and pants, and his clothes have a hint of weirdness.

Last time on Amanda & Martha, Amanda became engaged to Johnnie.

03-25-15_6-51 PM-2

Amanda & Johnnie were married in the park.

The did hire an entertainer and a bartender, but otherwise kept things pretty simple.

03-25-15_6-52 PM-7

03-25-15_6-53 PM 03-25-15_6-56 PM

Dinner was made on the grill.

03-25-15_6-56 PM-2 03-25-15_6-58 PM

Johnnie moved into Amanda & Martha’s house shortly after.

03-25-15_7-59 PM

Johnnie was clearly retired when he joined the house- he added lots of funds, but lacked a job. He had also aged quickly (A/N: more on that next post).

03-25-15_8-01 PM

Johnnie does have a hobby, though, and one that does make him some money.

03-25-15_8-20 PM

Johnnie likes collecting things he finds outside…fossils, gems, frogs, time capsules, whatever…if it’s hiding outside, Johnnie is after it.

03-28-15_6-46 PM

He’s been quite enjoyable to play. When Amanda or Martha is at work, the other one is usually sleeping (Amanda works the standard 9 to 5, and Martha works nights). Exploring the world with Johnnie entertains me during these times.

03-23-15_8-08 PM

Amanda and Martha are doing well- tired, busy and focused on work.

03-24-15_6-21 PM-2

Amanda dances when she’s stressed from work.

03-23-15_8-38 PM-2

Martha goes online and trolls forums for entertainment.

Amanda & Martha will be back soon! Amanda is looking to start a family, and Martha has to work on her mean reputation!

Marina Day 16

This is part of my “Community Sims” series where readers of this blog help create the Sims I use. Check out the rest of the posts here.  And please, feel free to vote in the most current poll to help me design the next community sim (#3)!

So far, you have decided that Marina should pursue the maximum level of gardening achievement and become friends with Travis and Summer. You had her wait on a relationship with Travis. She is allowed to pursue three of her own whims per day, regardless as to whether or not that match our goals for her. She spends time cooking one decent meal a day, but the rest she just grabs something quick like yogurt or cereal.  She is currently saving up to purchase a computer. You recently decided she should give it a try with Travis. Thanks to a weird flux in the space time continuum (a repercussion of the Bachelor challenge), Travis has aged significantly. You have decided Marina should not pursue a relationship with anyone for the time being.

Promotion

Today had a little bit of excitement! It started off normal- woke up, got dressed, had a quick breakfast, went to work, worked all day, but just as I was about to leave, my boss called me into her office to give me a promotion! I am now a Freelance Article Writer!

Other than the promotion, though, I don’t have much to tell.

03-22-15_2-22 PM

I made a Caprese salad for dinner.

03-22-15_2-23 PM

Watched some TV while I ate.

03-22-15_2-23 PM-2

By the time I was done with dinner it was dark, so I stayed inside until bed.

03-22-15_2-20 PM

And read a book.

Today was just another average day.

02-11-15_7-25 PM

I went to make breakfast when I realized both the fridge and oven were broken. Sigh. I don’t have the time or skill to repair them (and I certainly don’t want to try that alone) so I paid to replace both of them. Good thing I had money saved up for that computer.

02-11-15_7-25 PM-2

My table was too messy, so I ate at my future computer desk. I then went to work.

02-11-15_7-27 PM

My job performance was quite excellent today. I think I am going to get a promotion soon. Another blogger accused me of plagiarism. I chose to ignore them- “don’t feed the trolls” sort of thing and that seemed to work out well.

02-11-15_7-28 PM-2

When I got home, I took care of all my plants.

02-11-15_7-29 PM

And then jumped in the pool for a quick swim before bed.

Day 15

Hey! I have today off! That was totally unexpected.

02-11-15_7-40 PM-2

After showering and getting dressed, I cleaned up the house a bit.

02-11-15_7-42 PM

Then I tried making my first “gourmet” recipe- a fruit and yogurt parfait. Delicious!

02-11-15_7-45 PM

I did some gardening for a while.

02-11-15_7-46 PM

But my plants were still pretty good from yesterday, and I was feeling sad and lonely. I called the sadness hotline, they always cheer me up.

02-11-15_7-48 PM

In the late afternoon, Summer came over. I almost didn’t recognize her. She transitioned from adult to elder! I didn’t realize she was in the adult stage! I swear she was younger. Maybe I am aging slower than everyone else?! This means Travis is older now too. I better start spending more time with them. Maybe I work too much. I think this has made my loneliness even worse.

Amanda Takes a Romantic Hike

You can find more Amanda & Martha posts here or click the “Amanda and Martha” tag.

Last time Amanda went on another camping trip. She brought Johnnie along to convince him that a relationship between them was a good idea.

02-04-15_4-59 PM

After the campfire debacle, Amanda decided to start off slow. They went on a peaceful hike through the woods. They spent a lot of time talking, laughing and enjoying each other’s company.

02-04-15_5-01 PM

Then Amanda tossed “slow” out the door and planted one on Johnnie’s lips.

02-04-15_5-03 PM

The rest of the hike was very, very different.

02-04-15_5-05 PM

The stopped to watch the clouds go by- just like they did when they met. Then Amanda asked Johnnie if he’d be her boyfriend and he said “no”.

02-04-15_5-41 PM-2

After that, Amanda went back to being very confused, and taking things slowly.

02-04-15_5-42 PM

 

 

They spent the rest of their vacation having fun as friends.

02-04-15_6-38 PM

On the last day, though, Amanda took a big leap of faith, and asked Johnnie to marry her. She wanted to skip over all that other stuff- a Sims lifespan is only so long, you know?

02-04-15_6-38 PM-2

Amazingly, Johnnie said “yes”.

02-04-15_6-38 PM-3

He seemed pretty excited about the whole thing.

02-04-15_6-39 PM

And then they celebrated!

Mod note: In fairness to Amanda…a Sims lifespan is only about ~66 days. That means she’s been courting this guy for the equivalent of 8 human years.

Marina: Day 13

This is part of my “Community Sims” series where readers of this blog help create the Sims I use. Check out the rest of the posts here.  And please, feel free to vote in the most current poll to help me design the next community sim (#3, we are working on his hair, see below)!

So far, you have decided that Marina should pursue the maximum level of gardening achievement and become friends with Travis and Summer. You also decided she should not pursue a relationship with Travis just yet. She is allowed to pursue three of her own whims per day, regardless as to whether or not that match our goals for her. She spends time cooking one decent meal a day, but the rest she just grabs something quick like yogurt or cereal.  She is currently saving up to purchase a computer. You decided that on this day off, she should work on her career and hang out with Travis.

Another day off! How exciting! I woke up early this morning- well, for me anyway! I finished reading the book I was working on, and then headed to the library to practice my writing skills!

02-06-15_9-31 AM

I spent most of my day at library working on my writing and chatting with the people near me. Ronnie and I chatted for while about all sorts of things.

02-06-15_9-32 AM-2 02-06-15_9-32 AM-3

And I also chatted with a couple of women, they didn’t stay long so I don’t remember their names. Oops! I feel bad, they seemed nice!

02-06-15_9-34 AM

After the library, I went back home to grab a quick bite and freshen up. Then I went next store to see if Travis was home.

02-06-15_9-42 AM

 

He was! As usually, we spent the entire evening chatting.

02-06-15_9-43 AM  02-06-15_9-43 AM-3 02-06-15_9-44 AM 02-06-15_9-44 AM-2

 

We told jokes, talked about the neighborhood, and chatted about our interests.

02-06-15_9-45 AM

And guess what?! We decided, officially, that we are best friends! We hugged on it!

02-06-15_9-45 AM-3

Then we took a photo together.

 

02-06-15_9-46 AM

Chatted some more.

02-06-15_9-46 AM-3

 

 

And finally when it was time to leave, another hug!

 

Amanda Goes on Another Vacation!

You can find more Amanda & Martha posts here or click the “Amanda and Martha” tag.

Last time, Amanda returned to the real world a little heart broken, but Johnnie aka “bear” returned to the story. Martha continued pursuing her desire to be as evil as possible.

02-04-15_2-45 PM

Amanda had settled into her work routine, and even be found working from home filling out reports of some kind on the computer.

02-04-15_2-45 PM-2

Martha set fire to herself in the kitchen. She was fine, but the oven needed to be replaced. Amanda came home from working feeling tense from everything and had 2 days off. Additionally, her work gave her a few vacation days at the start of her employment. So…

02-04-15_3-02 PM

Amanda went on vacation again. Amanda actually had a whim to go to Granite Falls, and since she had the vacation days, I let her go. This time, she invited Johnnie with her. She was hoping that he’d be more open to the idea of a relationship in his favorite place- the great outdoors.

02-04-15_3-08 PM

This time Amanda decided to save some money and rented a spot at the campsite instead of the cabin she got last time. She purchased a tent and some other supplies, and set up this comfortable vacation destination.

02-04-15_3-53 PM

The lovely bathrooms weren’t too far away (but still proved inconvenient when you had to use them in the middle of the night!).

02-04-15_3-56 PM 02-04-15_3-55 PM-2

Amanda made shish kebabs on the grill, and her & Johnnie sat down for their first meal together.

02-04-15_3-57 PM

Amanda was tired, so she took a nap on the bench after eating.

02-04-15_3-59 PM

Amanda started a campfire in hopes of attracting some of her neighboring campers to stop by to hangout.

02-04-15_4-00 PM

It worked and she had a good time with some folks whom she hopes to become friends with.

02-04-15_4-02 PM

Things started off well with Johnnie. He was flirting and acting interested.

02-04-15_4-03 PM-2

There was some tickling and cuddling.

02-04-15_4-04 PM

But then she put the moves on him and he once again rejected her. He was nice about it. I think Johnnie just wanted to move more slowly than Amanda did. He was still single and looking for a relationship, and he was clearly into Amanda. They’ve become very good friends, perhaps he wanted to be sure to not risk ruining the relationship?
