The de Leeuw Family
(Lawrence Penninkmeijer is 23)
Narrated by Kenneth
Even though Lawrence and I are engaged, we desided on living apart after my graduation. There's no specific reason for it, we just thought it would be good. We both aren't partyanimals, and despite the fact that we don't live together we are mostly together when we're not working.
We are getting married one day, we are looking around for good locations. We haven't picked a date yet, we thought to go with the date that suits the location the best. We found this nice church with a great garden, so maybe it will be a spring wedding.
First we need to save some money, we want to be able to buy a house to, so we can move there after the wedding. But to save some money you need to earn it first. I have been looking, and finally got a job at the university as an intern, for now I work at the university mostly, but I hope to get into medical school soon.
Since I don't have the money yet, and there are other priorities at the moment, I try to work hard and keep up with everything.
At the moment I live with Elisa and her boyfriend Harald. We used to live in the same dorm and became really good friends. It's nice that I don't have to live on my own, but on the other; living with a couple sometimes feels like you're getting in the way.
I can't complain about them though. They make sure I can't walk in on anything, and they keep their private things private, which really is a plus.
They go out quite a lot too, which makes it really easy for me to invite Lawrence over whenever I want.
After one of those outings, Elisa came home really excited. She even woke me up, which is something she never does. But when she told me Harald had asked her to marry her, I couldn't blame her for being so happy. I'm really excited for them.
They have been talking about a vacation recently, and since Elisa's mother lives in the Ardens, their engagement would be a nice excuse to go there. Elisa's mother has been asking her to come by and celebrate Christmas with her at the Ardens as well.
- I have been changing my shedule a little bit, but I really wanted Berend and Larissa to have their children over for Christmas, and so they needed to be in December. Elisa and Harald will pop up in their update when I play them.
- I know Harald and Elisa haven't been together that long, but they both rolled the want to get engaged, and so I let them. As with Lawrence and Kenneth's wedding, I don't know when they will get married yet, but I think this one will be something for next round.
- I'm thinking of building a small doctor's office at my university and in ever subhood and main hood, this way my sims won't have to travell all the way to Simmeria when they just need a small check-up. I'm not sure about this yet, but if I do, Kenneth will be the "doctor" for these small offices since I already have 3 doctors at the BDD Hospital in Simmeria.
