Canterbury Cove - a BaCC: Week Seven - Lieman  
Photobucket
Welcome back to Canterbury Cove! I know it has been awhile since I have updated, but I really hope that once summer comes around I will be able to get much further into my gameplay and actually make some solid progress. Thanks for sticking with me guys, and I hope that you enjoy the update.

Life as a teenager is very limiting. There are so many things that I want to do in the business world that I just can't because no one takes me seriously. My siblings, the triplets, they don't really see it the way that I do. They're all a lot better at making friends and having fun, and although I do enjoy that from time to time, I really want to become a big name in Canterbury Cove for my businesses.

Photobucket
My mom understands that I want to learn as much as I can about taking care of businesses. In order to help me learn she has given me her store, Fresh Fruits and Veggies. I think she also wanted to retire and spend her time with the family and focusing more on her witchyness.

Speaking of her witchyness, it's kind of a really strange thing. Although, out here in Canterbury Cove people don't seem to be as critical as they might be in a big city which is nice for my mom.

Photobucket
Either way, I think that my mom is very satisfied with her life, and if being a witch is what makes her happy, then it is fine with me.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Dad's business has been going well so far and he promised me that eventually he would let me have it as well.

Photobucket
I also decided to buy my own business.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
This is the dance studio that I bought. It is called Just Dance.

Photobucket

Photobucket
So far I have been learning a lot.

Photobucket
I even met this really cute girl. However, I didn't really pursue her. I really want to focus on my businesses for now.

Photobucket
I did flirt with her just a little though. I mean, she was really cute.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
I wasn't the only one who was meeting cute girls though. Devon met a girl named Molly and they've really hit it off.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Cayla gave herself a makeover and since then she has been dating a boy named Carter, but I can't say that I like him very much. He doesn't really seem like that great of a guy.

Photobucket

Photobucket
I think Dad is just a little jealous that Mom has turned into a witch. They are both so obsessed with learning. I saw Dad trying to befriend the leader of the pack and he seemed upset later, something about it not biting him. I don't know why he would want one of those things to bite him. I would think it would have rabies or something. It's eyes kind of creep me out.

Photobucket
However, Dad has been working on something that must be really secretive and special because he won't tell any of us what it is. He spends so much of his time working at that robot making station.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
It turns out he was making a servo. He asked me to activate it since it would get my aspiration and since I am going to get to take over the household soon. His name is Mechi and he is really awesome.

Photobucket
We all try to spend as much time as we can with Echo, but we decided that perhaps Echo would prefer a canine companion as well.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
His name is Knight and he and Echo get along really.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Very well, in fact.

Photobucket
Evan loves Knight and he has been working on teaching him some tricks.

Photobucket
My parents hinted that they didn't think I had a very good social life and so my dad offered to set me up with this girl that he had met at the store. We went on a date to the new military base and ate in the mess hall there.

Photobucket

Susana was very nice and I enjoyed her company, but I just didn't feel any real sparks flying around. I'm sure that once I age into an adult that we will both move on.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Though, she did leave me a very nice gift as a thank you for our date.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Once my store got a little more money I asked a break dancer to come in and teach people how to break dance. I was lucky enough to be the first person to learn how.

Photobucket

Mechi is really helpful to us. He helps around the house and he likes to come to my businesses with me and help me out. His knowledge of fishing especially helps at my Fresh Fish and Veggies store.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
In their spare time, my parents have taken up making pottery. My dad is getting pretty good at it.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
My dad and I have also been working on our gardening skills as well.

Photobucket

Photobucket
I couldn't believe it when it was finally time for me to age to an adult. I didn't really want a party since I didn't see the need, but my family was there for it which I appreciated. I just feel like now I can do so much more and work even harder toward my goal of getting five successful businesses.

Photobucket
Once I became an adult my dad decided that I was ready to take over his business.

Photobucket

Photobucket
However, sometimes I wonder if I was not as ready as he thought. I definitely need more practice.

Photobucket
Although not everything went badly while I was there.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
I also spent some time at Fresh Fish and Veggies as well. Unfortunately, one of the trees caught on fire, but luckily a fireperson was able to come and put it out without any problems.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
A reporter even stopped by and told me that my store had won an award. I was really excited.

Photobucket
With so much of my life focused on business, I decided that maybe I should start to broaden my interests in order to become a more well rounded person. One day I realized that grilled cheese sandwiches were one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted and since then I have been hooked.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
We were all very excited when Echo finally gave birth. She had one puppy that we named Doug. He is so cute.

Photobucket
To my disappointment, even though Carter seems like a terrible boyfriend, Cayla has continued to see him. I know that it is not my decision to tell her what to do, I just really hope that she doesn't get hurt.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
She really seems to like him though...

Photobucket
One day while I was at Douglas Firniture, a woman that I had met named Alice just came up and kissed me. She told me that she thought I was really cute and then she just kissed me. I think she is nice and all, but I don't really think she is my type.

Photobucket
I met another girl as well, her name was Nicole. I thought she was nice but things just didn't click for me with her either.

Photobucket
I don't know if it was something about the girls that I had met, but I decided that maybe red heads were cuter than I had thought before and I started looking out for them more than I had done in the past.

Photobucket
And boy am I glad I did. One day when I was working at Fresh Fish and Veggies, the most beautiful girl that I had ever seen came to check out some groceries from me. I found myself tripping over my words when I tried to talk to her and she laughed at my stumbling of words.

Photobucket
I met her again later when she stopped by Just Dance one night and found out that her name is Reesa Moole. I ended up spending more time talking to her than taking care of my customers.

Photobucket
It didn't seem to affect what people thought of the place though. Most people really enjoy the time that they spend here.

Photobucket
Ever since I met Reesa I've found that I can think and talk about nothing else. I really should ask her on a date sometime soon. I guess we will just have to wait and see if I can find the courage to do it. I really hope she says yes.

Molly looks like a lovely person. :D A shame you only got one puppy, but it will be interesting to see how the pup turns out as an adult. :3

I'm thinking about getting a Servo for when Damien takes up the Xenophillia challenge, since it would be easier than getting a Nanny. Are they as annoying as I remember? XD Mine were always trying to serve dessert when no-one was hungry. :C
olivethegreatolivethegreat on May 20th, 2011 05:19 am (UTC)
She is very sweet. They only have two bolts though and I like for my sims to find a three bolt match, no longer how long it takes.

It's nice to have Mechi around, but yeah, he's always trying to "do chores" and he serves meals when no one is hungry.
bacc_krowbacc_krow on May 20th, 2011 07:21 am (UTC)
I don't think I've had a single three-bolter yet, lol.

If it helps, what a friend of mine did with their family servo was build a "bender closet" - a 2x1 hole with a door. The servo, when not useful, was sent to the cupboard and powered down. That way it was out of the way until needed. I'll probably end up doing something like that for Damien. :3
xbeccyx on May 20th, 2011 02:01 am (UTC)
YAY! Another BACC update from you! :DDDDD
I would really like one of my sims to make a servo, but I really want to give it the appearance of a sim... however, the only way to do that is to have an actual, random sim running around the neighbourhood. Ahh, oh well. :P

Can't wait for the next update! :)
olivethegreatolivethegreat on May 20th, 2011 05:21 am (UTC)
I was excited to put it out too. =P

You COULD make a sim and then kill them... if you wanted. I kinda like having my servo look like a servo, although it would be kinda neat if he looked like a sim.

Thanks! It should be out pretty soon actually. I just finished playing the Albrecht family tonight.
xbeccyx on May 21st, 2011 03:21 am (UTC)
I thought about that, but I was worried that the sim being dead might not work. I'll have to try... in another 'hood, first. :P

YAY! :D
Among the Chaos: Adam and Iriseien_herrison on May 20th, 2011 12:15 pm (UTC)
Actually, there is supposed to be a method which allows you to use a sim from your saved sims/body shoop folder -- http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php?topic=3563.0

I wil admit that I haven't tried it out myself, though.
xbeccyx on May 21st, 2011 03:25 am (UTC)
Awesome. I guess I'll have to try that. Thanks! :)
Among the Chaos: Samantha Spellthorneeien_herrison on May 20th, 2011 12:18 pm (UTC)
Glad to see another update out (although it has guilted me in to thinking that I need to play my BAC 'hood again soon...).

Cameron seems to be doing really well with his businessess; am I to assume he has the top 5 businesses LTW? I think Reesa looks adorable, and I think they should get together, boltage be damned :P
olivethegreatolivethegreat on May 20th, 2011 03:37 pm (UTC)
Reading other peoples' always does that to me as well.

Yes, he does have that LTW. So far he only has one though. I'm not really sure what else to make him have.
Reesa is actually a sim that I made into a townie and I've been wanting her to marry in for awhile now. I don't need to worry about boltage because they have three bolts! I generally only let my sims marry someone they have three bolts with. The only exceptions were Russell and Rachel because at that point there wasn't enough townies yet to find them a three bolt match.
Antimaccassar: DA - Anna B&Wantimaccassar on May 22nd, 2011 12:19 am (UTC)
I love seeing a witchy family! Reesa is super pretty! I hope she is the One for Cameron!

And what a way to explain random ACR happenings, walking up to a perfect stranger and kissing him! Only in the Sims!!
olivethegreatolivethegreat on May 22nd, 2011 12:25 am (UTC)
They are more than likely going to get together, I think they would be adorable.

Haha! Yeah... it was completely unexpected and out of nowhere.
