When we last saw the Hamiltons, Rose and Violet had just gone off to college. Apparently, Forrest took time away from his job in business and his 6 precious cats to bring the girls and get them set up in a decent house.
Rose's choice of headgear probably didn't help Forrest feel better about this painful separation. This was only supposed to be college. He hadn't seriously considered her marriage yet, but here she was wearing a veil like she was at college to get her MRS degree.
Meanwhile, the Bauer girls have called Devan Brown from the Urele Greek house next door to see if they could become members. They had planned ahead and were friends with Devan.
And guess what, if you are already friends with the one resident of the Greek house and you invite them over, membership is instantaneous when you ask to be a member. Even if they are not friends yet, your daily relationship only has to be at +25 with one person - who as a bonus is not trying to run away.
Both Cassandra and Charity were able to become members that day.
Back to the Hamilton girls: When Rose found out how easy it was to become a member, she jumped at the chance as well. She was also friends with Devan.
Violet then asked her sister to if she could be a "little sister" of the Urele House, and was immediately accepted in since Devan was already on the lot and there was no one left to change into a toga. If Devan had called her from home to join the Greek house, she would have had to get her relationship with Devan to +25.
That day the Urele House gained four new members, all girls. So technically, they could call themselves a sorority.
It was time for Devan to finally go home. She was going to go live with her brother Daniel in his new apartment.
Yay, this will be no problem for her to achieve.
I think this one is sweet. I hope that for her in real life.
Any career-oriented Lifetime Want makes me happy.
This is an easy one, and is the same as her mother's Lifetime Want.
Violet chose to major in mathematics. I'm usually trying to avoid math, myself.
Cassandra wanted to be a political science major.
Cassandra went to campus one night - in her nightie, of course. Ichelle Cox is the first person with the cool jacket that she met.
She stopped and bought cell phones for the other girls.
Then she met Yoosung Gibson.
Maura Trimble the Atrociously Evil Witch came by.
Cassandra was not deterred from trying to befriend her.
She even met a good witch when she was leaving the gym.
And finally, she met another guy with a cool jacket, Sabastian Anderson.
Rose gets enthusiastic about Arts and Crafts.
Her sister Violet sold her first masterpiece.
Charity didn't pick her own major, so I chose Art since she is really good at it.
Rose wanted to study biology - definitely a knowledge sim desire.
Rose got a plaque for Games enthusiasm.
Since the Greek house has plenty of money, I figured it was time to fix it a little and add on. The part on the right of the house is new.
Here is the now weather-proofed attic.
And here is the first floor. I'm pretty happy with the improvements. It's much easier to play now. Increasing the size of the bathroom and taking out some of the walls in favor of those room-dividing strips has worked out well.
Cassandra isn't sure what the blond lady is trying to accomplish with her crazy chicken dance.
As it turns out, she was from the Secret Society! It was real after all. Everyone there seemed impressed that Cassandra had found them, as they hadn't had any new members in a long time.
When Cassandra came home she had a cool new blazer and celebrated with some awesome "chocolate pancakes." *cough*
Charity gets a plaque for her Arts and Crafts enthusiasm. I think it was long overdue, as she's been enthusiastic since she was a toddler.
Cassandra, get away from the bubble machine and get back to work! The bubble machine is here to keep the girls from always wanting to buy one, and the side benefit is to keep annoying cow mascots and other visitors out of the way. Life has been very peaceful at Urele House lately.
It's annoying, but I have a glitch that made a lot of the Apartment Life townies not have phones.
Why is there a picture of this unknown girl bathing at the Urele House? This is the annoying cow mascot that's always hanging around. I have no idea how her hairstyle fits under her cow hat. I'm not sure what happened to her, but when her hygiene tanked, she was so smelly she had flies buzzing around her.
At least she bathed before helping herself to one of the beds.
The blond lady's nose smashes in when she does her weird secret handshake.
Poor Charity, she must be very scared and confused, although this could be a trip to the rumored Secret Society.
Fortunately, it all ended as she'd hoped, with the cool Secret Society jacket.
Congratulations, Rose! Rose temporarily replaced her veil with a thinking cap to work on her body skills.
And then she got into the Secret Society that night. Things were going very well for her.
The next night, Violet got her "invitation."
This cheerleader has been blowing the bubbles so long that she is a blueish popsicle.
Rose got her plaque for Fitness.
Here is an updated portrait of all the girls in their jackets. They had a great four years together and they all graduated with honors.
