Narrated by Stephan
I have to admit that I didn't have to think long when I came across this trailer for rent. I was pretty excited to move out of mom and dad's place.
I know mom wanted me to live at home longer, but it was just time to move out. So now she drops by almost 2 days a week to check up on me.
She wasn't too happy about me living in a trailer, but I think it surprised her how it actually is, I think it turned out better than she expected.
Whenever she comes by she brings me something to eat. I have to say I love that part of her checking up on me, I'm not a great cook.
And she insists on cleaning the trailer when she's over as well. Another you won't hear any complaints abouts.
Even though mom comes by 2 days a week, she asked Jo to check up on me as well. I don't mind Jo coming over, because most of the time she brings Eli with her, and I just love that kid.
Jo also invites me over for dinner occasionally, an invitation I happily accept, because anything is better than something I cook myself.
I know dad is worried about me as well, but he plays it differently. He invites me to drink a coffee somewhere to talk about business.
He does talk to me about the business, mostly that I'm not there enough. Which gives him the perfect excuse to hear me out on my doings.
I actually don't think I'm doing that bad. I'm never late for work, and the place isn't dirty or anything.
I admit that the meals could be better, but microwaved meals, are meals as well, so you won't hear me complaint about that. I mostly eat what mom brings me, at Jo's or at the station anyway.
I know I could put in more of an effort to be more at the store, but I'm there in time to deliver the toy's I've made. I don't feel like running the business anytime soon anyway.
Bea has dropped by occasionally as well. She love it that I'm living in my own now, and that we don't have to sneak around my parents anymore.
She thinks my job is exciting, and she's already planning on moving in with me, which I don't see happening any time soon.
I like Bea, and I like spending time with her, but moving in is something completely different. She was quite shocked when she heard that. Walked away, and I haven't heard from her since.
After some days at the trailer park, I decided it was time to meet some of the neighbors. So I went to introduce myself to my next door neighbor, Niels Bleek.
We get along pretty well, and we spend quite a lot of nights sitting on his porch with a beer, just talking about all kind of things.
We don't sit in the porch all the time though. One night he took me down to a club at college, Bar Le Coin.
It was there that I saw that Niels is quite the ladies man.
I don't know what he does, but after a small conversation he has them eating out of his hands.
When I was out with Niels, I ran into Marlys Zanobi. We used to go to school together, and she's at college now.
We kind of hit it off there, and we had a great time.
And before I knew it, I had her in my livingroom. I don't know if it were the drinks, but we had a great night together.
It wasn't all my doing, of that I'm sure. And we didn't make any arangements on what we are going to to do next, it was just a fun night.
The guys from the station insist on having at least one night a month where we all go out, playing pool, going to a pud, it's all fine, as long as it's just the guys.
I don't mind going out at all. And the guys aren't that bad to hang out with, even though they are all a little bit older.
Those nights out usually don't end early, nor do they end with me meeting a girl and taking her out, but they are fun.
One of the things I miss most is seeing my twinbrother every day. He started college earlier this year, and moved into one of the dorms there.
We try to meet as much as we can, wich is hard with his classes and studying, and my schedule but we make it work, at least at the moment.
On one of those outings with Steven, I ran into Marlys. Apparently she and Steven are living in the same dorm, not far from the pub.
We flirted a little bit, and agreed to meet each other again soon, but that was it at the moment.
I was out with my brother that afternoon, and we don't see each other that much.
On one of my rare moments at home, I was surprised to see Niels meet with a woman, I've never seen around, and a little girl.
They sat there for some time, talking. I couldn't hear them, and I haven't asked Niels about it yet, but I'm pretty curious about it all.

  • I love playing Stephan! He really is so much fun, and I never expected it to be, since I really don't like playing single sim households that much, but Stephan had a lot of things going on. I have to admit that I could have scheduled this update and the one before this one a little bit better, but I realised it too late.
  • I have to say I forgot all about Stephan and Marlys untill I reread my notes on this update. They make a nice couple, they have 2 bolts of chemisty, so we'll see where they'll go.
    I never saw Stephan and Bea going to long run, they aren't broken up at the moment, and next round I'll have to age up Bea. I don't know what I'll do with her, I have so many playable NPC's already, but they have some good chemisty.
  • So Niels is meeting with Tina and Zoey. I couldn't wait untill Tina's update, which isn't for some time, so I added some things in this update. Since Niels ans Stephan are kind of alike I thought they could be friends, and we could see some more of Niels through Stephan's eyes.


  1. When I was reading this, I thought, "this guy really has a busy social life for a single sim," and then you said that's something you enjoy about playing him. It was kind of funny how abruptly Bea left, I wonder if he might eventually consider asking Maryls to move in even though it was totally out of the question with Bea. Can't wait to hear about Tina and Zoey more!

    I love the shots of the trailer park and the one of them hanging out on the porch at night.

  2. This was a great update, and it shows that you enjoyed playing Stephan. I like his trailer! In his kitchen, I saw that you put the microwave on the counter diagonally and he can still use it. I didn't know this is possible. Will this work in my game (without any CC), too?

  3. I'm glad you're having fun with Stephan on his own! I'm like you and I tend to avoid single sim households. Maybe I'll give it a shot with Chris next round and see how I go. :)

    But anyway, Stephan is doing a lot better in his little trailer than a lot of 18-year-olds would do out on their own for the first time. Holding down a job, feeding himself, keeping the place clean and he's got a social life. Not bad!

    Poor Bea. I guess still being a teen, she had a bit of a fairy tale idea of what it would be like once Stephan moved out and he's sort of shattered that for her. I think it was probably a good thing though - 18 is really young to be moving in together! It should be interesting to see how he goes with Marlys.

  4. Interesting seeing Niels here, and Stephan had a great update! I totally don't enjoy playing single households ether, I'm actually supposed to be playing Violet-Adele today, and I wish she'd just get married so there'd be more than her and a dog!

    I think Stephan is doing pretty great for himself, I like that his family checks in on him. Feel bad for Bea, but such is life and is very common for teens-young adult sort of relationships.

  5. Shannon I don't ussually play my sims this way, so it was kind of a nice change to do it this time.
    I don't see Stephan and Marlys as anything definitive, but they might prove me wrong, so I'm not sure yet if I'll let Marlys move in with him.
    The porch is the one from Niels' trailer, I think it fitted him :)

    Thanks for reading and commenting!

    Librarian I'm glad you liked the update and the trailer. Stephan and Niels are both living in a small trailer, there are 3 bigger ones as well.
    The microwave in the corner that way, comes with a mod/patch if I remember correctly. So I don't think it's doable without CC, I'm sorry.

    Thanks for reading and commenting!

    Carla Stephan was more fun than I thought he would be, but I don't know how many rounds he'll be this much fun :) At the moment I can recommment it highly though :)

    I think Stephan is doing well, but we can't forget his mom and sister, and their constant checking in. Even though he's not doing too bad.

    With the next January-birthdays I'll age Bea up to an adult, and after that we'll see how she and Stephan will be doing, though I have not much hope for them.

    Thanks for reading and commenting!

    Maisie I had to introduce Niels again some time, and no better time than this update, he and Stephan have some things in common.
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Violet-Adele, I hope she found love now!

    I think it's needed that his family checks in on him, otherwise I think he would be a mess :)
    We'll see what will happen when Bea is an adult, but is she and Stephan don't make it, I have other plans for her :)
