Chantilly Plaza Dorm: Boys

When the girls decided to go to one dorm and the boys to another the boys decided they wanted a larger co-ed dorm. They chose Chantilly Plaza Dorm. The boys knew it was the right decision form the moment they moved in.

Ken Becker's goal in life was to Become Head of Posiden so Biology was an obvious choice.

Aiden Pitts was a romance sim though he was beginning to question that goal so when he chose his major of Biology it was purely out of interest.

Kyle Becker being the family sim wanted to become Captain Hero and thus chose Psychology as his major.

The boys found themselves spending lots of time at the Student Union and Jamming well into the night on more than one occasion.

The boys also found themselves doing some studying. They found they were more likely to do this if they got together and studied as a group.

Kyle knew that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Ginger. He found a really nice place on campus and invited Ginger on a date.

He couldn't wait to propose, he didn't even wait till dinner was done. When he pulled out the box Ginger was speechless.

Ginger of course said yes. Both Kyle and Ginger where Family sims and they knew they were meant for each other even back in High School.

After dinner Kyle and Ginger found the dance floor and danced the night away. It was the best night either of them had ever had.

On one of their almost daily trips to the Student Union Aiden met Jordan Barakat. He couldn't stop staring at her so he finally got up the nerve to talk with her.

Aiden asked Jordan on a date which she said yes to. She hadn't been able to keep her eyes from Aiden when he was up on the stage jamming with the boys.

Jordan and Aiden where soon quite the couple on campus. They couldn't keep their hands off of each other.

Ken seeing his friends as happy as they where decided he would try the matchmaker that Sarah had used to find someone.

Brittan Upsnott was just what Ken was looking for. She was beautiful and smart and she didn't mind the slight mean streak that Ken had.

Brittany was soon spending most of her time at the Dorm with Ken rather than at her sorority.

When left to their own devices the boys found themselves doing very different things. Kyle would often be found playing chess.

Ken found a love of making things. As a fortune sim he hoped one day to own his own business.

Aiden had found a target. One of the campus mascot's was always coming over and driving them all nuts. Aiden decided enough was enough.

The boys decided that they wanted to live in the Greek House started by their grandmothers. It didn't take much to get in as the current members where their cousin's.

Chantilly Dorm: Girls

With so many of the cousins going to Sim State University at one time the girls decided that they wanted to be in a female dorm away from the boys. The figured they would have less of a hassle without the boys that way. The only one who was a little less enthusiastic was Ginger as she wanted to spend lots of time with Kyle.

Ginger Newson's goal in life was to reach her Golden Anniversary. Art had always been a hobby of hers so she chose to take Art as her Major.

Sarah Becker's goal was to become a Hall of Famer. In order to pursue that end she chose Drama as her major as that would leave her lots of time for her sports.

Tara Flylar has always wanted to be a Media Mogul. Psychology was the obvious choice for her.

Abigale Becker is destined to be a Mad Scientist and Mathematics was the way to go for her.

All four of the girls where determined to get right into the school work. They all finished the term papers as soon as they could. They figured that would leave them lots of time for the more social aspects of College life.

Much like others in their family the poker table was often the place they found themselves. They would play late into the night and talk about their day.

Abigail was never the nicest girl on the block but there had never been anyone she really didn't get along with till she moved into Chantilly Dorm. Mackenzie and Abigail disliked each other from first sight. It wasn't long until they where at each others throats. Abigail was the strongest of the two and always won the fights. No one else understood why Mackenzie even tried to win a fight.

Tara and Abigail had a rocky relationship at High School but living together seemed to bring them closer together. They where always hanging out and gossiping about everything on campus.

Ginger and Kyle didn't get to spend as much time together as they had wanted but they made the best of the date's they did have. They made everyone around them sick with how cute they where together. They found it easier to go out rather than spend time at either of their dorms.

As exam time got closer the girls found themselves doing more and more study sessions. Often they would go well into the night.

Sarah never realized how focusing so much on her studies and not so much on her social life was effecting her. One day she just lost it and started babbling on the floor.

Her friends soon had a therapist come and see her. The therapist told her she had to spend some time on her social life.

Sarah decided to call the local matchmaker and see what she could do for her.

When Korey Lind appeared Sarah thought she had made a mistake in paying all this money for a blind date.

Sarah soon realized that the choice of Korey was the right one. Despite his dress Korey was the a good match for Sarah.

When ever the girls got a chance to sit down and enjoy a meal together they did. They would talk over everything that was going on in their lives and all the gossip of the day.

Becker #2: Career Goals

Dylan: It's been a long time since I really sat down and talked with my sisters so I invited them both over one evening. It was really nice to see them. I did realize that my haircut was very like Faith's. Maybe I'll get it changed.

Even is working very hard at getting to the top of yet another career. He wants to be Chief of staff now. So we often have one or other of his colleagues over for dinner in the evening. It does seem to be getting him up the career path faster.

After entertaining a few of Evan's colleagues he soon made Chief of Staff. Another top of career and Life time want. He really is a knowledge Sim.

Jason hadn't been too interested in going to Chantilly Academy but Sarah really wanted to go there so we invited the headmaster over for dinner to see about getting her in. It really didn't take much as Sarah is not only an A+ student she also does a lot of things outside of school.

Sarah has been looking into what she wants out of a College so one of Jason's friends from Sim State came over to help her figure things out. Laura Chalmers really was a lot of help for Sarah.

After her chat with Laura, Sarah really hit the books. I'm almost always finding her with her nose in a book.

If she's not studying then she's off to the community center to work on her athletic skills. She wants to be a Hall of Famer.

When the sun goes down Sarah will move inside from the soccer pitch to the gym to play some two on two at the basketball court.

When she's done playing sports she's blogging about them on the computer.

With Evan and Sarah working on their career goals it's given me more time to slip away to the green house. I used to spend a lot of time in the garden and it's really nice to get back to it.

Unfortunately with the other family members wrapped up in their pursuits I seem to be left to fix things around the house. I know I could call a repairman but I just can't seem to justify it when it's just a leaky faucet.

I thought it was hard to say goodbye to Jason when he went off to school but I guess with it now being an empty house made it a little harder saying goodbye to Sarah. Though it won't be long till Jason is back here living with us again.

Darcy: It's so nice when its just the four of us for dinner. We actually talk about things going on in are lives. These days most of what the twins talk about is going to College and what they need to do to get more scholarships.

I've always wanted a pet and I finally went and bought a cat, we've named Bonkers.

Abigail and I have taken to Bonkers, the boys aren't so sure about a cat in the house. How can you not love Bonkers he so cute.

Abigale is often found with her nose in a book. She is a knowledge Sim so studying for scholarships isn't too difficult for her.

Abigail can be found goofing around too. I'm not sure when she discovered that swinging on the fridge door was something fun to do. I've never seen Aidan doing it.

Abigail also likes to grow vegetable in the green house. I was never big on it but my sister Faith and my mum where always to be found in the greenhouse when we where growing up.

Abigale is quite the social thing. There are often friends over after school. Mostly her cousin's Sarah and Catherine, also her friend Ginger.

Aidan is also to be found with his nose in a book but it takes a lot more for him to study.

Aidan's form of socializing is more likely to be on the phone.

If he could be doing anything at all Aidan would be playing on my guitar.

It wasn't long till our little kitten was an adult cat.

Well I knew the time would come but my twins are off to Sim State University.

With the kids gone we where able to have my parent over for dinner along with a few friends. I love that my kids are off to College but it's nice to talk of something else.
