Caleb is 49, Abigail is 48, Jesse is 46 and Cara is 42)

Straight thru you

Round 30: May 2031 (Autumn)
last update/next update/Ethan's next update

Matilda Jacobson and Ethan Novak are both 25 and Adrienne is 24.
(Claudio is 50, Virginia is 41, Maia is 29 and Alice is 5)

Narrated by Matilda Jacobson

Ethan just told us that he's not going to be living with us for much longer. He's my ex, so living with him has been slightly awkward at times. But he's also my friend and although I'm happy for him, I'm going to miss him around here.

Round 30: April 2031 (Autumn)
last update/next update

Kit Royce is 71, Max Nihill is 44, Zaria Royce-Nihill is 43, Josh is 17 and Jessica is 11.
(Eliot is 45, Cordy is 38 and Lila is 18)

Narrated by Zaria Royce-Nihill

Josh is planning on going into journalism when he graduates but I keep telling him he should consider politics. I think he'd be fantastic at it. He's been working as a door-to-door poller after school and wasn't having much success with responses, so he hit on the idea of phone polls. People have been much more receptive to answering questions over the phone.

Download: Nouk's Tommie Hair, Pookleted

So over the weekend, with some help from Sari over Twitter, I finally figured out this whole Pookleting thing! I adore Pooklet's textures and colours and ideally, hers are the only ones I'd use. It's nice to be able to switch easily between hairstyles without my Sims' hair colour changing drastically. I'm so excited about doing more of these!

I hadn't seen this hair Pookleted yet, so I thought I would throw this up for download, for your Simming pleasure.

Audrey and Olivia model the black tones.

Nick is 28, Sarah is 26 and Ethan is 25)

Narrated by Maia Novak

I still like living with Aaron and Calvin but I do feel ready for a space that feels more like my own now.

Amelia Gottlieb knows this will be her last baby, so she's relishing every minute of her pregnancy. Baby #4 for the Gottliebs will arrive in October.

Make it up

(Jack and Audrey are both 19 and Josh is 17)

Ever since Connor, Sophie and I moved into the dorms, Connor has been on our backs about choosing a major. I don't know why it matters to him but it really does.

Shake it off

(Nathan is 21, Charlie is 19, Connor and Sophie are both 18 and Grace and Everett are both 1)

Narrated by Jack Benton

I'm missing Charlie a lot more than I thought I would. I guess it's natural that I would, seeing this is the first time we've not lived under the same roof but it's weird not having him around all the time.

Teenage riot, February 2031

Locked out

Round 30: February 2031 (Summer)
Lake Draper is 74, Kendal is 55 and Chris is 16.

You say it's your birthday, February 2031

Claudia Kirby is quite relieved. Jacob's long hours working as a fire fighter had her worried that when she went into labour, he wouldn't be there. Luckily, Baby Kirby has conveniently decided to arrive on a Tuesday, which just happens to be Jacob's day off.

Wishing well

Round 30: January 2031

last update/next update

Adam Gottlieb is 76, Athena is 71, Amelia is 42, Wade is 41, Noah is 13 and Emma is 11.
(Sophie is 18, Elspeth is 17)

Narrated by Wade Gottlieb

Amelia took me by surprise all those months ago when she told me how she really felt about the whole situation with Joanna and Rose. I guess I shouldn't have been so shocked, because it's so obvious to me now that it should have been a joint decision. But that's meant that we've been talking more, which is better. Amelia sometimes likes to let things stew.

2031 elections: polls now open!

Once again, elections are underway in Sullivan! The current governor, Kirstin Sitko, has only served one term so under Sullivan law, she's allowed to stand again. She will be running against two other candidates but we'll look at Kirstin's platform first.
