New Chapter, Same Book!

Well it happens to the best of us, you play for a couple of hours and make a tremendous amount of progress. Then just when you get so enthralled with the ongoing stories and what not of your sims life the game crashes to desktop. At this point you may be raging at your computer and thinking, "Crap all that progress...gone." And yes I was there, as you can see from my previous update I had chosen a starter couple. But all good things must come to an end and I decided to start over yet again. This time with the couple that was a close second.

Yes Nile and Ariela had a bit of a rough patch during their time in college. But after some time apart they met up again at a local coffee shop and things were back to the way they were. Much to my surprise they put the past behind them and decided to give their relationship a try once more.

And well lets face it with a face like Nile's what girl could say no, he is very charismatic after all and has something of a nice foothold in the community. But Ariela seems to care little for things of the sort and just missed him.

The pair wasted no time finding a humble abode within the up and coming neighborhood of Starlight Shores. A moderately sized two bedroom two and a half bath, the pair seems to be settling in quite nicely.

Shades Of Love

I couldn't stay away too long. What can I say I missed my friends in the Genetics challenge! And boy have they been busy too. The thread is now at 101 pages and still going strong from my last visit there.

In case you are unfamiliar with the challenge and the way it works, here is the run down. You are given three couples to choose from all of which are interracial pairs. Each their own character, if you will. However you may only choose one of the founder couples to start your challenge with. With the release of University Life I felt I would begin this challenge again but this time with a different start than normal.

I moved all three couples in with one another under one roof. That proved to be a challenge in and of itself. After their first semester I soon realized that I had bitten off more than I could chew. Amanda and Lazaro broke up almost immediately after the semester ended which was sad really I liked her features a lot. But all's well that ends well I suppose and the next semester I started off with only four instead of six hoping to see which of the couples would win my heart.

All of them are very good students and love their prospective majors a great deal. Though Adrian and Natiki stood out the most this time around.

Things seemed to be going pretty well with everyone. Natiki is a hit with the Jock social group.

A bit of friction between one the couples helped me decide on the founder couple. And I must admit I was rather shocked by it actually. Nile decided after a good day at school and an A on his final he would come back to dorm and celebrate with Ariela. But she had other ideas...

Natiki and Adrian will be my founder couple! They are so cute together!!
