Narrated by Madeleine
Adam and I have been together for 2 years now, and well, the magic was kind of gone. At least for me it was. We tryed talking about it sometimes, but he always wanted to work on things. But if the magic is gone for almost 6 months, I'm kind of tired of working on it, so I broke up with him. I almost took it all back when I saw his face, he looked so heartbroken, but I know it's for the best.
Since I broke up with Adam, I have been thinking about the future. And althought I think mom is fine now, after dad left 2 years ago, I still don't want to end up like she did. She's focussing on her work now. Ever since we rebuild the garage into a studio, there isn't momnet mom is not there. It's a nice room, I love spending time there too, but there is much more in life than work, especially since she's not opening the shop.
I'm happy when her friend, Frieda, comes over. She has been a huge help since dad left, but like I said before, it's been 2 years, mom should get out a little bit more, but she just doesn't want to. So instead Frieda spends a lot of days and nights at our home.
Mom really enjoys those visits. She and Frieda have been friends since they went to university together. They lost contact a little bit when they both started families, but they knew they were only a phone call away.
In the beginning I stayed home with mom when frieda was over. But after some time, they both pushed me to get out with my friends, so I do. I go down to Simmeria the most, and meet Elisa. Fran used to go out with us too, but she has a child now, and has to stay home a lot more, especially since, Frieda (Fran's mom) is over at out house a lot.
I try to meet dad occasionally too. I can see he really enjoys those meetings. He always does what I want to do, and we get the chance to talk too. I get to know a lot more on dad since he moved out. Apparently he and his girlfriend arent getting a long as well as I thought. She never had the intention of dad moving in with her, and now dad is stuck there. He already met someone else, which he's not ready for me to meet, but it's too soon to move in with her, and living on his own is little bit silly since there might be another option soon, so he stays.
Mom finally pulled herseld together and started working on herself. First thing she did, was redecorating the house. All of dad's influences were removed, she even switched rooms with me, because she was tired of the room she shared with dad.
After redecorating the house, mom reopened the shop. She said that if she was going to work, she could earn money doing it too. She mostly stays behind the counter and crafts things or paints things, while she leaves me with the customers.
I'm loving the customer interaction, even though I'm terrible at handling the cash register. But the customers are patient with me. I'm working hard though to get better.
When the shop closes, mom sometimes agrees to go and have dinner at The Pier. I love going there, and I wished they would have a facility to party too. Anyway I'm glad mom is finally getting out.
Look who dropped by at the first day of the new Rai Arts...
This is their livingroom after the redecorating. I loved it, but they hardly spend any time in the livingroom, so it never made it into the update.
- Madeleine never rolled any wants for Adam, so it was time to break them up. I never planned them to stay together, otherwise I would have tried to keep them together. Poor Adam though, he still has this picture of him and Maddie in his appartment, and I think it's so sad! I wanted her to meet someone new soon, so I sent her out to different locations, but she has no botls with any of the guys!! There only is negative chemistry!!
- Ella is a popularity-sim but she never rolls any wants to meet someone new, or to be friends with someone, maybe it has something to do with the fact that she's shy, or with her secondary aspiration which is knowledge, but I used it in the way that she's not over her break up yet.
- And now a little bit on Berend, since he's living with a playable NPC, you don't get to see much of him anymore. Emily (the woman he's living with) never had the intention of living together with Berend, or even have a committed relationship, it just happend. He had a fight with Ella, and took off, he has money, but I didn't want him living on his own, so he moved in with Emily. They both have their own lives, and the only thing they are charing is the bed, and mostly they actually sleep! Berend alredy met a new woman, well she's not all that new, but she's new for him, and you will get to meet her soon, it depends on how fast I'm updating! Emily is a happy single woman for the time being, but this will change some day too.
- I will be having the next post ready for you by monday!!
