Educated teen run away challenge
Miranda had a lovely snow filled day with cuddles and new experiences. It is one day before graduation (I checked and all of the students that were in school with her are now young adults, so I think they might be at the graduation with her
She then painted a little bit and then thought of trying something different.
Ice skating First off it was hard, but Miranda got the hang of it.
Then she had to run home when it started snowing a bit too much
Arriving at home she made herself some dinner when there was a knock at the door
Kiyoshi came for a quick visit, he missed Miranda
He stayed and they had lots of fun until it was bedtime for Miranda, big day tomorrow
Something went wrong, although all her classmates are young adults the graduation never happened. I will wait one more sim week and see what happens. Looks like its buggy in my game
So the calendar never showed graduation, but when I googled it, it said that a pop up will still come up the first Sunday after aging up. None of that happened though, so Miranda just had another normal chill day today. Kiyoshi did come to visit though, which was nice. Not sure what to do now mmmm ???
some nice brekkie
Painted a painting
Watched some birds, they were cute
Oh my gosh need to fix this
Kiyoshi came over for a visit
Well guess it is not tonight Dinner then bed
Not sure what happened, or what to do next, will google a bit.
edit to add
There you go, it's there, I guess I will work on her skills a bit this week before starting uni and attending her graduation
When I had a run-through with a test sim, this is what happened, graduation never came and then I read about the conflict with Lounges. When I changed them, no problem. I am still kind of upset about her friends in high school that didn't age up to YA for graduation, but it looks like all yours did. I think most of Ali's friends were still stuck in high school waiting for that graduation ceremony! lol
@JojoMOMSTER its all goods, she will work on some skills this week, I have aging set back to long after her fellow classmates aged up. So should have more than enough time
@SoulGal7 thanks so much for that tip, I will change all the lounges to karaoke bars (I like those) I think the reason Miranda's fellow class mates aged up is because I used short age span and waited until the day of her birthday, that way she was not aged up too early as the game tries to have the ages matched with your actual sim's. Then once she aged and her friends aged, I changed it back to long aging. Well that is my theory LOL. Gonna load my game now and start changing all the venues that are lounges now
Miranda had a nice relaxing day, just working on her debate skills and also joining the penpal community. She decided to work on the research and debate skills as she heard via other sims that it helps you a lot once you start university.
A nice warm bubble bath and some brekkie to start off the day
And lets research and debate
Miranda recently joined the penpal community, it is lots of fun, she has one postcard from Riverview, sounds like a nice place.
Well what do you know, part one complete
A nice lavender bath and dinner in front of the tv watching the cooking channel
Chatting with Kiyoshi while listening to some lovely music
Bedtime for busy little sims
Day 27 - Sometimes I get too focused on a challenge and forget about doing some fun things. Ice skating is so great! Ahhh...Kiyoshi missed her. That is so sweet and they build a snowpal together.
Day 28 - That face that Miranda makes when graduation doesn't come is hilarious. Like...hey, my calendar told me it was tonight. I bought a dress and everything...and now I have to wait a whole week! Sheesh! Yes, fun and games with sims 4 bugs. lol Let's hope we see her graduate soon. And, yes, I love those karaoke machines and my sims singing. Way too much, too. I could spend too many sim days just having my sim sing those karaoke tunes! When they get good, Iove to hear how their voice sounds like and how they sound with other sims. I think one of my fav packs with the Sims 1 was the expansion pack Superstar. I loved having my sim sing.
Day 29 - Good that Miranda is getting a head start on her Research and Debate skills. Might as well work on those skills as she waits for her graduation. Will she be staying in her house or moving into residence? I just find that the pop-ups for activities seem to come when they are in residence vs. stay at home. She is looking so great, and sweet, that she has a video chat with Kiyoshi.
New chapters up on Lindsay's story. So excited for the latest developments.
Day 30 Tuesday
Miranda had another chill day, guess a few of those are going to come until graduation LOL.
Kiyoshi came over for a quick visit
Some skilling up time
almost missed a bedtime photo, she sneaked off while I was distracted with the real life tv LOL
@all going to load my game now.
Day 31 Wednesday , Day 32 Thursday, Day 33 Friday, Day 34 Saturday as above
Will play now and then update Day 35
Will just play it out and see what happens
It was a huge disappointment for me, with no graduation happening, why even bother having packs that the features never work Anyways for Miranda it was a fun day, she had Kiyoshi over and got lots of new penpals. She had her own private graduation just her, and then enrolled into university. I have moved her into a dorm room where there are two beds, but I locked the door for everyone and I am going to change it with the buy cheat and then it will be her own big room, I mean come on she used to live in a big house. Seems like that is gone too, never played just one sim going to university and it sold her house automatically I think, anyways time to just complete this challenge and get it over with.
I think she is still having a pirate moment during breakfast arghhh
Oooh more penpals
Hey birdy birdies
Preparing for university
Painting a confident painting
Kiyoshi showed up for a visit, it was a long and very lovely visit, pics were not taken of all activities, although moodlets might give it away
Ugh no graduation ceremony. I am not happy, but Miranda made a plan
Some selfies to remember the "big" day
Now the university courses.
Miranda's dorm room as she moved in, her sim god will change it for her
She looked great in her high school graduation robe. I love her dorm room with all the pics. So cool she is going in for Culinary Arts. (I had to fake grad pics with Jacob for uni, so all is good.) There must still be a graduation glitch for high school.
That face that Kiyoshi makes when Miranda tells him she is going to uni...it's like...what...you're going to Britechester..when will I see you again? Great update!
