Watch out, the Bloomer siblings are coming!
Booker: “To boldly go where no man has gone before!”
Aah, seeing the combination of Lilah’s adventure seeking and active nature combined with Peter’s loveable geekiness makes me so proud!
Booker has grown up to look like a slightly more tanned male version of Lilah. He is a perfectionist and an aspiring Rambunctious Scamp, making him a prime candidate for the next generation’s bodybuilder gym-building heir.
Although Chell might give him a run for his money after all. It turns out you can max out your motor skill purely by using the computer. As Chell has achieved her Whiz Kid aspiration, she moved on to the the rambunctious Scamp one and maxed out her motor skill using Cathy Tea’s Arithmetic Attack trick. She was able to reach her second aspiration thanks to this in no time!
Having used the corresponding Keyboard Commander shortcut, she has also maxed out her creativity skill and is now working towards completing the Artistic Prodigy aspiration.
Note: I have discovered that it is not necessary to stop at level 9 – having the appropriate skill maxed out will still do the trick in rapidly gaining skills whilst playing the games above. This glitch/Easter egg is insane!
Chell: “Must. Paint. Faster. Birthday. Is. Coming.”
Yenn: “You can do it sis!”
Meanwhile, Booker is working on his aspiration the good old-fashioned way, out and about, on the monkey bars.
Success is all around for the Bloomers these days it seems…
Peter: “You got a promotion? Me too!”
Adventures of Captain Duckhorse have reached an all-time high, and Peter is now considered a Best-Selling Author. Only one more level to go until he’s reached this generation’s task!
Meanwhile, Lilah has become a Regular Contributor over at Sims’ Health magazine. Since her career and aspiration have no effect at the generational task, I have been able to take a much more relaxed pace with her. In fact, she didn’t even have a formal job until her and Peter got engaged. I think I’ll have her pursue the journalist branch for a bit of variety.
Yenn: “Booker! The big day is here! Chell’s growing up! What if she doesn’t want to be my best friend anymore?”
Booker: “Then I’ll always have a spot on the playground for you!”
Chell: “I haven’t managed to achieve my third aspiration. I guess I’ll never be creatively gifted. I pass the torch on to you Yenn, you can do three… or all four, even?”
Yenn: “What, me? I can’t be faster than you! And there’s no way I can be a social butterfly… you know I don’t like strangers!”
Yenn: “I think you’ve done great on the aspirations sis!”
We threw a proper party for Chell and invited all of the Agustins over, but not a single soul showed up. I guess the younger Agustins are way too busy with their love lives. At least we have everyone in the immediate family celebrating with the firstborn. At least the cake wasn’t a lie.
Chell: “This is so exciting! So much to see and do! Discovery awaits! But, if I’m to do something, I better do it right!”
Chell has become a perfectionist, just like her mom and her younger brother. Not having been able to complete the Artistic Prodigy aspiration as a child must be really bugging her, as she’s decided to pick Painter Extraordinaire as her teen aspiration.
She got herself a cork board and a new filing system to track her progress. Let’s see if she can manage to complete this one by the end of her teen years!
