There's new regulations coming in that makes it more difficult to get into university. All students wishing to enroll will have to sit an exam and will earn points based on their performance during school and the results of the exam. I'll already be in uni by the time they come into action but I thought there wasn't anything wrong with getting a head start anyway. Ramona did well during university and mum is expecting me to do just as well, if not better.
I'm trying to make time for my girlfriend, Louisa but its been difficult recently. This is our final year in school and since we're both planning to go to college in 2003, we're concentrating on school. Usually we just manage to squeeze in a quick phone call before bed. Atleast we can see each other at school, even if its not the ideal place to spend quality time together.
Mum is trying to work her way up the career ladder. She's never really been bothered about work, aslong as it paid the bills, she was happy. I think she hoped that Ramona would come back home after uni instead of getting her own place but now its clear that Ramona is happy where she is and with me preparing to head off to university, she needs something to keep herself occupied. I don't think i'm that bothered about getting any particular job, I just know that uni will open up a lot more options for me.
Notes: My updates are rarely long but this one is shorter than usual. Mainly because i've been reading Sullivan Sims updates and have pinched a few ideas from there, one being about admissions to university. I plan to update all gameplay posts (sim profiles included) tomorrow but long story short, sims need to earn a certain number of points, earnt through skills, hobby enthusiasm, grades ect, to get into uni. Sean was short by 10 points so I had him skilling like mad to try and get to the minimum requirement. He did it, infact he got a couple extra. Since playing though i've decided its too much pressure for my poor sims and leads to a pretty dull round (i'm trying to make blog posts a lot more interesting!) so I won't be forcing it on the sims due to go to uni in Autumn 2003.
