Time for another exciting semester of University!

snapshot_00000046_5ff17d6f

As you may recall, the Carrs donated to fund another building, so the Leo Pavlov Memorial Library was built. (It’s possible that I might have just stolen the library from Sim State and renamed it.)

Cham Var Hoh House

Some of the housemates were hungry after finals, so they enjoyed some leftover Chinese food before working on their term papers.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3feeeda9

Irina Carr came by, and Ramsay made friends with her as Munchie Bot showed up with pizza.

snapshot_1e9c043f_5feeef8a

Anya also came by, and she and Mauro spent some time in the hot tube, just chatting.

snapshot_1e9c043f_dfeef4a4

The bills for the Greek house are ridiculously high, over $700. So for this semester’s upgrade, they got a couple of solar panels. It did knock a couple hundred dollars off the bills.

snapshot_1e9c043f_ffeef67f

Venyamin got on the phone to throw the house’s Beginning of Semester All Playable Bash.

snapshot_1e9c043f_9feef6f4

Also known as the Renewing Teen Relationships party.

snapshot_1e9c043f_1feef73e

Liouba and Lluis got right back to flirting.

snapshot_1e9c043f_5feef74a

No, guys, no. You already renewed your relationship, and then you broke up, remember?

snapshot_1e9c043f_3feef7a8

Michael and Mireia skipped the flirting stage entirely.

snapshot_1e9c043f_dfeef877

Everyone in Willow Valley is obsessed with the slap dance.

snapshot_1e9c043f_1feef88f

Fickle much, Dimitri?

snapshot_1e9c043f_5feef960

Apparently Lluis is really hot. Who knew?

snapshot_1e9c043f_7feefa1b

Michael and Mireia spent the whole party all over each other. It’s kind of adorable.

snapshot_1e9c043f_9feefb76

The Carr sisters showed up fashionably late – as in, I forgot to invite them.

snapshot_1e9c043f_7feefc0dAkilina and Agnes became the last teens to renew their relationship – although they never really had anything serious to begin with.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3fef0031snapshot_1e9c043f_5fef0040

That night, the students finished painting the last of the portraits. They all look great! The founding members got gold frames.

snapshot_1e9c043f_3fef00a9

Mauro and Carme were the only two members of the household who weren’t friends with each other – mostly because I wanted Mauro to get settled in before Carme made him another notch on her belt. But they decided it was time to get to know one another over a game of chess.

snapshot_1e9c043f_7ff17e53

Ramsay felt just a bit guilty at woohooing with Carme, although he couldn’t say exactly why. Just because he was a father now didn’t mean that he and Annika were suddenly exclusive, after all.

snapshot_1e9c043f_dff17eaa

Michael brought a video game system back from campus! Sweet.

snapshot_1e9c043f_1ff18220

The house hosted another party, a toga party this time. Carme always seems to wear her nightie to these – apparently she doesn’t have a proper toga.

snapshot_1e9c043f_dff18236

snapshot_1e9c043f_dff1824d

Malvina, I’m sorry to say you only brought it on yourself. You never should have kissed Dimitri at the last party.

snapshot_1e9c043f_1ff18371

Mauro thought he’d try something different, so he invited Demi to join him in the hot tub.

snapshot_1e9c043f_fff18443snapshot_1e9c043f_1ff18481

Lluis was subjected to unwanted advances while Liouba looked on. Fortunately, he rejected them.

snapshot_1e9c043f_1ff1870e

Venyamin brought another TV back from campus. I sold it and bought them a fruit tree. Pretty sure that means I’m doing the whole Greek House thing wrong.

snapshot_1e9c043f_bff18a91

Mauro got food poisoning! It was his own fault for eating spoiled Chinese food.

snapshot_1e9c043f_5ff18c85

“Wow, man, this is some good soup. I feel much better now, thanks.”

“No problem. It’s my mom’s recipe.”

snapshot_1e9c043f_7ff18d40

Venyamin and Demi had spent some time hanging out at the party, and had a great time. So shortly before the final, Venyamin invited her over for a date.

snapshot_1e9c043f_5ff18faf

They’re really cute together, with their matching dreads.

snapshot_1e9c043f_bff19071

Some random visitors slap danced while the residents of the house were at their final.

snapshot_1e9c043f_7ff190f9

And we have A pluses all around!

40 Almond Street

snapshot_3e3fd4be_9f6867b9

Left to right: Dimitri Hamilton, Marya Hamilton, Orlando Centowski, Romina Necci

snapshot_3e3fd4be_fff2dfd3

Marya broke the computer while paying tuition. Is this going to become a theme? At least she didn’t get electrocuted.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bff2e092

The burning flamingo amused me for some reason.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_7ff2e0c9

“I’m so glad you moved in with us. It’s good to have someone around for girl talk.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_9ff2e165

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bff2e1fa

With the money everyone in the household contributed to the house funds ($200 each), they redid the study corner.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_fff2e2ce

Marya stayed up late working on her mechanical skill while everyone else was asleep.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_3ff2e3ce

Their bills are only about $50, thanks to Romina’s pathological need to buy ceiling fans.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5ff2e41a

For some reason, these guys seem to eat a lot of toaster pastries.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5ff2e42d

Malvina came over and heartfarted…Marya?

snapshot_3e3fd4be_dff2e61e

The Hamiltons came by for a visit, because Romina wanted to make friends with Aglaya.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_bff2e720

Since Dimitri’s the only one in the house who’s permaplat, he was elected to paint portraits. 3 down, 1 to go!

snapshot_3e3fd4be_7ff2e86d

Orlando fixed a delicious spaghetti dinner for his in-laws to be, since Marya had assured him spaghetti was her moms’ favorite food.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_1ff2e9d3

Aw, Romina and Dimitri spontaneously cleaned the kitchen together.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_1ff2ebdc

For some reason, Marya didn’t manage to finish her term paper until more than halfway through the semester. That’s unusual.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5ff2ecf5

Hooray! Marya has now maxed all her skills.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5ff2eeb2

And the portraits are done!

snapshot_3e3fd4be_7ff438c2

Everyone spent the evening hanging out doing Group Research.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_1ff43bb0

Marya and Orlando had a sidewalk date in their PJs, just because.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_3ff43c1a

Then Marya wanted to get struck by lightning, because she’s a crazy suicidal knowledge sim. But even though she hunted for bugs until it stopped raining, the lightning didn’t cooperate.

snapshot_3e3fd4be_5ff43cc8

“Whoa, Romina, I did not need to know about that. Dimitri’s my brother, you know.”

snapshot_3e3fd4be_fff43fba

A pluses all around!

Larisa House

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5ff81403

Left to right: Mhairi Bruce, Akilina Carr, Feofil Pavlov, Irina Carr, Malvina Bruce, Anya Pavlov

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_dfeb1203

These are the clothes the Carrs grew up in. Ugh.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_dff81491

Everyone did their term papers right away. Larisa House is the only college housing that has enough computers for all the students to write their term papers at once.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_fff8157d

Irina and Akilina are sharing a suite, but when I built the dorm I envisioned this suite as housing a romantic pair. Good thing Irina brought her bed from home, and doesn’t mind sleeping in the sitting room.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5ff815fa

“Congratulations on falling in love with my brother.”

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_fff816f6

The Carrs were a little late to get their lunch, and unfortunately had to settle for burned chili. Darn cafeteria workers.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_fff81947

Akilina went in to try to make nice with Malvina’s rebound girlfriend, but found Malvina busy with her .

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_9ff81a57

Then she got rejected for woohoo. Alas.

Akilina’s LTW is to woohoo with 20 different sims, so there are a lot of pictures of her coming out of photobooths ahead.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3ff81d00

Akilina and Mhairi are the only two dorm residents who aren’t friends with each other, so they sat down for some pancakes and a chat in the morning.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5ff81d64

Feofil spent a whole lot of time hanging out in the hall, dancing.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3ff81e7e

While the others were at class, Irina and Akilina headed down to Dance Fever, hoping to meet some new sims.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_fff81f9f

Agnes Picaso showed up. Akilina was totally cool with that.

At some point they went up to 2 bolts, from the 1 they had as teens, despite their incompatible aspirations (Akilina is Romance, Agnes is Knowledge).

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3ff8204e

And they had never woohooed, so Agnes got her first woohoo while Akilina got her second belt notch.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_fff82196

Irina had never met Agnes, so she got some aspiration points as well from first Meeting Someone New and then making friends with her.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_dff82274

Agnes doesn’t seem to be the jealous type. That’s a good thing, as Akilina is up to #3. (ACR makes the 20 woohoo want so much easier.)

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_dff8230b

Um. No.

Please don’t turn into a scary stalker, Irina. I promise I’ll find you someone age-appropriate who’s not gay and married with children and grandchildren.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_9ff82474

Back at the dorm, Akilina was pleased to find another potential romantic interest just strolling by.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3ff82627

Mhairi’s been playing the violin a lot lately, in her quest to max her Music & Dance enthusiasm. Success!

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_dff82716

Liouba walked by as well. Irina waylaid her and made friends with her.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_fff8279b

#4, and Akilina is a Big Woman on Campus.

(I didn’t mean to focus on Akilina more than the rest, but she is the only one in the dorm who has a LTW that’s achievable in college.)

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_bff82a46

“VOOOOOOOO GERBITS!”

“It takes more than that to impress an old lady, missy.”

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1ff82bef

Irina had a party, and right as the guests arrived the tree was struck by lightning. And of course, everyone knows the best response to a fire is to run toward it and then scream and panic.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5ff82ca5

After the fire went out, I got everyone inside, where serious slap dancing ensued.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_3ff82cf7

It wouldn’t be a college party without inappropriate woohoo.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_fff82d2b

I wasn’t really expecting Irina and Ramsay, but I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_fff83018

The only thing surprising about this is that Agnes got the aspiration points.

Also, #5 for Akilina (since the other woohoo with Agnes was public, and this one isn’t). A quarter of the way there!

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_7ff926ec

Akilina and Malvina hung out after everyone else had gone to bed. I thought for sure something romantic would happen, but it didn’t. Akilina must have realized that Malvina, as a Family sim, would take things far too seriously.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5ff92a72

Spring is in the air, and everyone wants to buy garden plots and fruit trees. So the group used their collected funds to build a lovely little greenhouse.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5ff92af4

Malvina’s OTH is cuisine, so she randomly made delicious meals and desserts even if no one was hungry.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_dff92cad

“Anya, I’d really prefer it if you’d put on some clothes before class.”

“Oh, Feofil, don’t be such a prude.”

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_7ff92d9f

#6

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_dff930a8

Irina used the crystal ball, and got Komei. I know it is my solemn duty to make a Komei joke here, but truth is, I like the guy.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1ff93128

“Bees! Why is it always bees?”

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_bff933fe

Irina and Komei had a nice date.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5ff93663

Anya and Mhairi enjoyed glowing while doing the slap dance.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_dff93760

Everyone decided to work on their One True Hobbies late into the night. Anya’s is Fitness.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_5ff93880

Mhairi already had maxed enthusiasm in her OTH, so she got a flower bench and started making flowers.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1ff93b6d

Anya tends to not really get into the Romance sim stuff, but she did invite a guy over for a date as the semester came to a close.

snapshot_1f5dfc2d_1ff93ca1

The final went well, with 4.0s for everyone.

(Akilina rolled up the want to major in Psychology, but everyone else remains undecided.)

Pavlov Hall

snapshot_7feb0c58_7feb1146

Back row, left to right: Nastasia Thayer, Agnes Picaso, Lluis Picaso

Front row, left to right: Liouba Pavlov (Pederson), Mireia Picaso

snapshot_7feb0c58_1feb0d92

The grow up clothes. Lluis kept his clothes, while Agnes and Nastasia just switched outfits. And I suppose the witch outfit for Liouba is SOP. But let’s take a closer look…

snapshot_7feb0c58_1feb0e0f

Poor Mireia definitely got the short end of the stick in the clothes department, and the bad hairdo department.

snapshot_7feb0c58_fffc20ea

Nastasia wasn’t too sure about this “mac’n’cheese” stuff. Yes, it had cheese in it, but it just wasn’t the same as grilled cheese.

snapshot_7feb0c58_9ffc2170

 Agnes is the first Knowledge sim I’ve had at Salix University who rolled up a proper Knowledge Sim want to write her term paper.

snapshot_7feb0c58_1ffc262b

“Wow, Lluis’ jaw really exploded when we grew up. Maybe I should consider adoption.”

Lluis’ jaw did kind of explode, hence the beard. Also, Liouba thinks facial hair is hot.

 snapshot_7feb0c58_bffc2691

 “Oh, yeah, grilled cheese is awesome. My dad would always make the best grilled cheese sandwiches when we went over to his house.”

It’s a good thing Nastasia found someone she can talk cheese with.

snapshot_7feb0c58_fffc272dsnapshot_7feb0c58_7ffc2793

People brought outing gifts for sims who have moved out. I wasn’t sure who they were for, so I sold the chess table and stuck the vase on a table somewhere.

snapshot_7feb0c58_5ffc27a3

“Thanks for studying with me, Agnes.”

“Anytime! I’m so glad we’re all undecided on our major so we can share classes and study together!”

snapshot_7feb0c58_bffc28c9

“Liouba, look! I’m fit!”

“Sorry, babe, busy painting a pretty flower for the cafeteria.”

snapshot_7feb0c58_7ffc2ada

Mireia got up way earlier than everyone else, and spent some time doing the slap dance with Stinky Crystal.

snapshot_7feb0c58_7ffc2d0a

Nastasia wanted to make friends with Professor Inappropriate, and was thus the first sim to max her grade bar.

snapshot_7feb0c58_9ffc2d4e

Liouba and Lluis headed for the photo booth immediately upon waking up, without bothering to change out of their pajamas. They’re a consistent 3 bolts now that Lluis has a beard.

snapshot_7feb0c58_bffc2eb4

Poor Stinky Crystal. Being a dormie is a rough life.

snapshot_7feb0c58_bffc2fe5

Nastasia was feeling lonely, and Stupid Rodney (the dormie at the chess table there) wouldn’t give her the time of day, despite two bolts. So she used the crystal ball, and got Goopy as her #1 match!

I love Goopy.

snapshot_7feb0c58_7ffc300d

And he’ll listen to her blather about grilled cheese! That’s definitely an essential.

snapshot_7feb0c58_1ffc3029

Lluis and Liouba are doing the “steady couple that spends all their time all over each other” thing.

snapshot_7feb0c58_9ffc307e

You had your chance, Stupid Rodney.

snapshot_7feb0c58_7ffc31fc

Mireia consoled Stupid Rodney by taking him out for a snowball fight. At night, because what else would you do with a stupid dormie after dark?

snapshot_7feb0c58_3ffc32b8

Double date!

snapshot_7feb0c58_1ffc335f

Agnes’ grade bar was maxed, but she felt like doing an extra credit assignment anyway.

snapshot_7feb0c58_9ffc3438

Liouba wanted to max her Arts & Crafts enthusiasm. She already has max creativity, so she got a pottery bench.

snapshot_7feb0c58_7ffff9e8

I was a little worried about Lluis and Nastasia having 3 bolts, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a problem.

snapshot_7feb0c58_bffffa52Stinky Crystal fell asleep standing up in the shower. This worried Stinky Liouba.

snapshot_7feb0c58_9ffffb55I realized that I got her the same outfit as Brittany Parker, so Liouba got a new outfit.

snapshot_7feb0c58_1ffffe89Nastasia finally caught up with Stupid Rodney in his dorm room.

He may be stupid, but he’s still worth aspiration points.

snapshot_7feb0c58_80000092It appears that this group’s gift to the dorm is crafting benches.

 snapshot_7feb0c58_60000985

 Akilina wandered by, and Agnes was so thrilled to see her that she rushed out in her PJs.

snapshot_7feb0c58_800009de

 Crystal decided to have her first woohoo with a random walkby while everyone was at their finals.

snapshot_7feb0c58_e0000a1a

Back from finals with straight As, and inappropriate swooning galore!

That’s it for the 2nd University chapter! Next up is the Cooke-Pavlov family.
