SE2 Day 2 University Term 1
Mia arrives in the university town of Britechester on a Saturday and gets right down to work and finishes all of her homework for all four classes first thing. (I have a mod that cuts down on the time it takes to do homework because the vanilla time is so long it’s ridiculous. You can find that mod here.) It will be very important to Mia’s final grade to get her homework done every night before each of her classes. Since Mia is hoping to graduate with honors, she’s going to make a point to always get her homework done on time!
After all the homework is done, Mia next gets to work on her presentation board and then her two term papers. That’s right, the poor girl has two term papers. She spent the rest of the day working on all those things in her dorm room rather than mingling with her roommates roaming the rest of the dorm. Hey, she already has three friends back in San Myshuno, who says she needs more than that? She seems happy enough to me… when she’s not depressed that is. Oh, nevermind!
The next day (Sunday) she continued her work on the board and her two term papers after eating a decent breakfast in the commons and making some quick purchases at the university kiosk including a laptop and easel. Her presentation board is now properly finished/refined and she has first drafts of both term papers completed. Now to edit the term papers to perfection before Sunday is over and her classes begin. Mia manages to finish everything before bedtime! She’s still avoiding her roommates. Getting near them causes stress so she mostly just stays in her assigned dorm room quietly working and occasionally playing games on her new laptop.
Monday is her first day of classes and she starts it bright and early and manic. She has only one class on MWF and manages to get to it on time. Once back at the dorm, she finishes her homework for that class then spends the rest of the day celebrating Egg Bunny Day. Being in a dorm, she isn’t able to decorate or bake anything but she will be able to accomplish the rest of the traditions… if her moods allow that is.
After searching the entire dorm for hidden eggs, she gets brave and gives a found daisy to a roommate who ended up hating it and then tries to be friendly with the visiting and slightly eerie (it never speaks) Flower Bunny. She may be highly uncomfortable but that’s three traditions completed so at least she will have a happy and satisfying holiday when all is said and done.
Mia still has several hours left in the day so she accepts another freelancer gig and gets right to work on it. Later, I notice the Flower Bunny is in another room dancing to Alice Cooper on the radio. Um, okay… It’s times like this I wish I had made video clips instead of just screenshots. Oh well, the memory is ingrained in my brain forever. LOL!
The next morning, I sent her to go on a jog after breakfast but for some reason Mia took her half-eaten breakfast burrito with her. This game just keeps getting weirder and weirder! Oh, someone keeps leaving passive aggressive notes all around Mia’s bed but she never sees who is doing it. It’s starting to creep me out. Anyway, after her jog, Mia went to all three of her classes on time then got down to getting her homework done then submitted both of her term papers. Just got to remember to give that presentation using the board after class tomorrow! Mia’s time at university is going quite well so far!
Mia finishes another day of class and homework on Wednesday then has time for yet another freelancer gig. See, when you have no social life, you can get a lot of work done! Mia did try to introduce herself to a few of her roommates but it didn’t go too well with any of them. She kept having panic attacks and got stressed out. That’s so damn familiar to me! Also, I don’t know if it’s supposed to be like this or not but my roommates keep screwing each other like crazy. It’s like a intermittent orgy all day and all night. Mia meanwhile just keeps to herself and when she does walk in on some peeps getting busy, she just quietly walks away without getting too embarrassed.
Mia is neither manic nor depressed on Thursday when she is able to get to all three of her classes on time once again. She’s feeling good about her chances at good grades for this term. Is she right? Only time will tell for sure. Regardless, Friday also goes well though she gets stressed out an hour before her final. She’s still feeling good about her possible grades though! I think she’ll be okay…
WOW!!! Mia just got her report card Friday evening and she got AN A+ FOR ALL CLASSES!!!! Damn, I’ve never had that happen before and I’ve played through university a few times since I got the expansion pack! I’m so proud of Mia! Now to sign up for one more term and then she can get her degree. (Yes, another mod. This mod shortens the number of required classes to graduate from 12 to 8 because four terms is just two too many for me. You can find that mod here.)
That’s the end of Mia’s first term of University! Tune in tomorrow for her second and (hopefully) final term and then (hopefully) graduation! Will you join us to see if she can make the grade? Please do!
