Bancrofts Part Four: College and a Catch-Up

Last time we saw the Bancrofts, eldest twins Madison and Michael had just headed off to college. Madison chose the Mathematics major. I moved her into a small dorm with a group of other "fundie" Sims. As I'd created them, they were all controllable; I soon realised that this was too much so I moved Madison out after her first semester. (Two semesters per "year", four "years". Each semester lasts 3 game days/72 game hours). This is Madison coming back with fellow math major Mary Cole.

This is Lottie Harper. She's a biology major I think.

The other two were Alice Jones (all blue, blonde plaits) and Elizabeth Banks (all purple, red wavy hair).

Madison decided to do a brief stint in the dorm cafeteria. She wore PANTS! She earned 10 simoleons roughly every twenty game minutes (twenty seconds in real time) and didn't even have to do much work. SCORE.

After her first semester, she moved into a house. Now, how can we tell this is an all-girls' house? (She moved out with Mary Cole).

They decided to form a Greek house and invited over old dorm-mate Lottie Harper to join. (Sims 2 University has its own "Greek-style" letters/names for their houses; this is the Annya-Hoh-Oresha Sorority).

Now, we hop over to Michael's dorm, where he (of course) was living in a single-sex dorm. In keeping with "Sapphire" Springs, the other dorms are named various shades of blue. Madison was in Sky dorms, whereas Michael's is Navy. There's also Periwinkle and Azure for my non-fundies.

One evening, Karen randomly showed up. I don't know why, I didn't see her come in... that's a fundie mom for you. (The guy behind her is Samuel Marsden).

Michael decides to hang out with dorm-mate Bradley Jefferson. Their cafeteria worker was female... Madison's was male. Go figure.

(I forgot Michael's major, although it might have been something sciencey. Next time I play them I'll check).

As I mentioned in the bonus Eastley post, Cow mascots are "evil"; more prone to do nasty autonomous actions like poke Sims and, as this photo demonstrates, set off sprinklers. The guy just visible at the side is Pete Farleigh.

Let's go back to the main Bancroft house. Karen's in a familiar situation... (Max is in the green playing chess).

You know what Karen changing out of her long skirt means by now... The white glow refers to the fact that she has max enthusiasm in Arts and Crafts. She has max creativity skill, so she can sell paintings for a good amount.

Max decides to move out. When a Sim leaves for college everyone stops what they're doing and rushes to see them off.

Martha is the only girl in the main house now. Because I gender-segregate the bedrooms, she gets a room to herself. (SPOILER: it's gonna stay that way for a while yet).

snapshot_e7474311_67853299.jpg.e1ed9457d86dd5cc0b241989dfa76448.jpg

Karen's in another familiar situation. I haven't yet had a bathroom baby. This is another situation where everyone runs over to see what's going on.

snapshot_e7474311_c785347d.jpg.33f3b73e760bac846621744f39a3a372.jpg

She had twins again; two boys, Mark and Morgan. Sorry, Martha.

Back to Michael. He also moved out into his own place (well, not alone technically). Max moved straight into this house instead of into a dorm. When he aged into a Young Adult, he was wearing a ridiculously "fancy" outfit of cream suit, black shirt and red tie. I bought him some more casual clothes.

We end the post on a fun photo: Madison and Lottie had a pillowfight in front of the basketball hoop (Mary's main hobby is sports. As I've said before, Sims can be interested in any hobby, but they'll have a favourite. Madison's favourite is Nature, like her father's).

      I'm glad she mentioned unwrapping the bouillon cubes. I might not have thought of that. Also, pet peeve, the chest clip on the car seat is too low.

      In the grade above me there were 2 girls named Christie Ann Smith, and they had the same birthday as well, they were Christie 1 and Christie 2.  In the town we live in (population aprox 10K) there is a man with the same 1st middle & last name as DH, they were both born in the same month and year DH was on the 4th the other man the 24th, and according to the local dentist office their social security numbers are 2 numbers off. Last time DH went to the dentist they got the wrong chart, he said written on both of their charts in big block letters is DOUBLE CHECK ADDRESS, 2 PATIENTS W/ SAME NAME BIRTH MONTH AND YEAR! This guy has a daughter in the grade behind our daughter so they had to write mom's names down to keep from mixing up stuff for them.  It was really bad last summer when the OTHER guy got drunk and rowdy at a local park and got into a fist fight with a DNR officer.  

      My daughter had two girls that she grew up with that had the very same name. They had all the same friends, played the same sports, it was confusing. Except one was very blonde and one was very brunette. So from like 5th grade they became *Becky Barger Blonde and *Becky Barger Brown (*not their real names). Everyone, even teachers called them this. 

      FunFact: One is in prison now for killing a guy in self defense.
