SE2 Day 5 Love Blossoms
Do you remember my problem yesterday with seeing so many ostentatious townies that it made my eyes hurt? Yes? No? Well, I took a couple hours off today to create a host of new townies for Mia to mingle with. Some I created from scratch, others are Sims that I downloaded and installed into my game. I put them all in the empty apartments in San Myshuno and if they happen to cross Mia’s path, so be it. If they don’t, at least I’ll be secure in the knowledge that there are at least a few normal looking townies roaming around San Myshuno. Okay, back to the experiment story!
First off, Pippa aged up to a full adult today! She’s still an adorable little doggy but now she can go for walks and learn tricks such as how to fetch a ball. Unfortunately, she’s a little Couch Potato so training her is difficult. Mia will keep at it though even if only to teach her how to fetch a ball.
Mia has started a photo wall with all the photos she has taken of herself and Pippa. Just like my IRL photo wall, it’s mostly puppy dog photos. LOL I’ll try to remember to have Mia take some new selfies for the wall later on. At least her photography skill is increasing with each puppy photo and Pippa is gaining a lot of followers on Simstagram, apparently. I meant to write down how many but I lost count.
As you may recall from earlier in this post, I created several new townies and placed them in the empty apartments around San Myshuno. I seem to have placed one of them named Jacob Voss one of the empty apartments in the same building as Mia. I didn’t mean to do that! Oh well, the two met when Jacob walked over her apartment because he was bored and they hit it right off as Jacob seems quite smitten with Mia. Within a few hours, they start flirting and soon have their very first kiss! Damn, Mia works fast when she’s manic!
The next day, Jacob invited Mia out on their very first date. They went to a cafe in Newcrest for coffee and conversation. It went very, very well despite some idiot that kept sitting in the third chair at their table and making their conversations go from flirty to awkward due to that third wheel. Damn idiot. Still the date was a success so why am I complaining?
Before the date was over, Mia gave Jacob a key to her apartment on a whim and then he agreed to be her boyfriend. Did I say before that she works fast when manic because damn she does! If mania was as simplistic and positive IRL as it is in the game, I’d wish I was manic more often. Unfortunately, there’s more to it than just being “energetic”. I’ll keep this in mind should I ever get around to creating a new Bipolar Trait of my own.
After the date was over and before leaving the cafe, Mia had to stop and get a macchiato because those things are just so fantastic and who doesn’t love an extra jolting buzz after a long bout of socializing? This is actually her third macchiato because the first two cups she ordered were swiped by awful townies before she could take a single sip. Bad townies! At least she finally got her creamy buzz then left the cafe to return home.
Back at her apartment, it’s time to work off those specialty coffee calories! Mia has lost quite a bit of weight since her story began but now she’s kinda “thin but flabby”. So, with her extra cash, she bought a weight lifting machine. Now she can really get into shape! How she managed to use that thing on the first try without pinching anything, I’ll never know because that’s what I would have ended up doing. I do have a feeling she’s going to be sore after this workout. Good thing she has a relaxing bathtub to soak in later!
I just realized that Mia has been so busy flirting with Jacob that she hasn’t been working on her skills for promotion or her aspiration! (Isn’t that typical?) So, she started to work on that but then Pippa needed to potty so Mia took her for a “business walk”. Outside they go and… why did Pippa just try to poop on Mia’s shoes?! I thought they were beloved companions!!
The next day, I noticed Pippa howling with little hearts floating around her. She’s gone into heat! I could have sworn that all the puppies up for adoption had been fixed but I guess they missed Pippa? Weird. So it’s off to the Pawspital (I just love that name) to get Pippa spayed.
While at the Pawspital, Mia ran into the Supriya who was also taking her dog to the vet. The two chatted for a while and soon became Best Friends Forever! Yay! Now Mia has a good, trusted friend with whom to socialize and go out of the house with and still feel secure in spite of her Agoraphobia. (Yes, having a friend does help.)
Meanwhile, Pippa was successfully spayed! Poor Pippa must now wear the cone of shame for a while until she is healed from her surgery. While they were there, Pippa also had a quick checkup with the vet where she was given a shot to prevent illnesses after getting a clean bill of health. Now that Pippa is taken care of, time for both of them to return home.
While Pippa is on the mend, Mia and Jacob went on their second date to Chez Llama for dinner. Once again, it was a spectacular gold level date! They flirted, talked, and then flirted some more. They both seem so happy together and get along very well. Both appear to have the Creative trait so that helps.
Well, she was going to work on that Logic skill tonight but Jacob just came over so they started watching a movie on TV instead. Well, at least Pippa still looks comfortable. Whoa, Jacob is in desperate need of a skincare regimen, isn’t he? Maybe it’s time that Mia suggested one to him… I just hope he doesn’t take offense!
That’s all for the rather eventful Day 5. Come back tomorrow for Day 6 as Mia continues to try to live life to its fullest while suffering from both Bipolar 1 and Agoraphobia.
