Kim and Jane: 5.6 “A Piece of Paper”

Last time with the Diffys, Kim and Jane continued their quest for university degrees! They also discovered inconsequential-but-cute footage of the legacy founders as teenagers. This time…

Kim: “So, Mom, you and Grandad can make it to graduation, right? …yes!”

screenshot-183

Kim: “Hmm, grades aren’t all that great this term.”

screenshot-185

Kim: “Who cares; I’m graduating!”

screenshot-186

Jane: “So, Dad, you’re gonna make it, right? …sweet. Invite Ashley, too!”

screenshot-189

Jane: “Dean’s list? Weird.”

I would like to point out that although Jane did make it onto the Dean’s list, she has an overall F-grade GPA.

And while Kim did not have an outstanding GPA this last term, she had a perfect GPA overall.

I would also like to say that I feel slightly cheaty because I use this mod, which alters the difficulty of academic performance. I am using the x2 version. I don’t feel too bad because university is insane without it.

Kim: “Ready? We need to get going to change into our robes.”

Jane: “Robes? Riiiiiight.”

screenshot-198

Maura looks proud.

screenshot-202

Jane: “Boring, right Dad? Glad I skipped out after getting my diploma! I bet the rest of the ceremony is dragging on forever.”

screenshot-209

When Kim finally gets out, she does a victory jig.

Meanwhile, Salem is picking fights while on freewill.

Salem: “You graduated? Aren’t you just the typical frat boy who only cares about keggers?”

screenshot-216

Salem: “I guess anybody can go to university now if they have enough money.”

Jeffery Dean: “Ouch! Burn!”

Maura: “Brrrr…so…cold…”

screenshot-218

Jeffery: “So where’s your degree, old man?”

Salem: “I don’t need a piece of paper to prove my worth in the world.”

Now now, that’s enough.

screenshot-221

When they all come back home, it is time for Salem’s birthday. Couldn’t clean that disgusting counter, could we?

screenshot-223

screenshot-225

Maura and Salem take advantage of everyone’s attention on the cake.

Maura: “Um, can I speak to you upstairs? There’s, um, something I should show you.”

Salem: “Yes, of course, that sounds, uh, important.”

screenshot-227

Kim: “Hey Thad, how are you?”

Thad: “Do you mind coming down to my level? I feel kind of weird looking up at you.”

screenshot-228

Kim: “Sorry! I just kind of forget I’m doing it.”

screenshot-230

Thad: “It’s ok, it must be natural to you by now. So, what does it feel like?”

screenshot-235

Kim: “It sounds weird, but I feel like liquid, or that I’m travelling through liquid. It’s become easy to forget that everyone else is bound to certain rules that I am not. It’s fun, sometimes.”

screenshot-20

Now it is time for the Diffys to leave this house. And the bills are left unpaid, so ha!

I’m glad that C.B. chose to carry Emmie rather than let her teleport (not that that happened once already but my game crashed or anything).

screenshot-21

The Diffys are moving into this classic Strangetown home. Yeah, the one with creepy babies.

screenshot-23

 

Jane: “This place is pretty bare and cramped. Renovations incoming!”

 

screenshot-32

Kim: “So, Grandad, I was hoping that you and Emmie might stay here with me and Jane.”

screenshot-29

Cinnamon Bun: “Really? You want an old man and a toddler to live with you?”

Kim: “Of course! Don’t say it like that; we love you two! Please, live here with us, but on one condition: you have to retire.”

Cinnamon Bun: “Again with that? I’m not as helpless as you all think I am, but I guess will do this for you.”

screenshot-36

Maura: “I’m going to miss having you around the house, Kim.”

screenshot-38

Kim: “Don’t look so sad! We’re only down the street from your new house, and we can talk on the phone all the time.”

screenshot-35

Maura becomes partner at the spa to finish that Property Mogul goal.

screenshot-41

And then Salem and Maura move into their own house; it really is just down the street.

 

screenshot-48

Kim acquires a job in the journalism career. Journalism is the primary income, if that wasn’t already obvious.

screenshot-52

C.B. makes good on his promise to retire.

screenshot-55

Kim: “I’m so glad you listened! Happy yeti day!”

Jane: “Hi, Emmie!”

screenshot-56

D’aw.

screenshot-62

Jane: “So! Thad, I hear that you and your wife Wendy have been trying to find a place to live?”

Thad: “Hear that through our dads? They’re like old gossiping women. Well, it’s true. It’s pretty hard for us both living with our parents still. I guess we should have probably waited to get married, since there aren’t any houses available right now.”

screenshot-61

Jane: “We’re pretty good friends, y’know. I feel like we mesh, right?”

Thad: “Well, of course, Jane. You just always like having a good time, so I’m glad we’re friends.”

screenshot-64

Jane: “How would you and Wendy like to live here with us? You guys, me, Kim, our grandad, and Emmie. It’s kind of a full house, I know. I understand if you wouldn’t want to.”

screenshot-66

Thad: “Live here with you…and Kim? That actually sounds like a really good idea! It definitely wouldn’t be boring.”

Yes, Thad and his wife are moving into the household. And now I can finally reveal the family structure: dun-duh-duh-daaa! Full House, with Kim, Jane, Thad, and Wendy. And who is this elusive Wendy Beaker-Subject?

screenshot-68

Well. You seem like fun.

Next time: We’ll get to know Wendy and Thad better, some serious conversations happen, and house renovations.

    “Kim: “Hmm, grades aren’t all that great this term.”” and then who cares I’m graduating! This will be me in June haha. Uni will be the death of me.
    I’m curious to know more about Wendy and Thad, though I guess I’ll have to be patient :c
    House renovations are always fun though~

    I love love love that you’re playing in Strangetown. That was my favorite hood in TS2. Uni looks really difficult. I was considering doing it this next generation in my RL but it looks too stressful. XD

      Strangetown is great! I really appreciate the awesome creators who convert these towns/make new ones. This town is perfect if you want something small that runs really well.

      Uni can be stressful, and it slows down your legacy quite a bit, lol.

    A full house sounds wonderful to read about. I would freak out if I had to take care of so many sims, though.
