Karma Academy: Chapter 5

Astraea rolls (random trait generator) Genius with the Positivity challenge aspiration (changed to Whiz Kid by me).  She was also a Top-Notch Toddler and will be the heiress for the second generation, no matter what happens (more pregnancies, etc).

She and Cali begin playing chess to work on her aspiration.  She was read to enough as a toddler that is already completed.

Cali needs to either write jokes or practice music to prepare for her next work shift.  She chooses music even though she plans on becoming a comedian, and she makes the same face while she practices.

Felix is getting a little bit chunky.  Looking back through the folder, there are a lot of pictures of Felix like this.

Chunk spends time with Astraea the next morning before they start their day.

Felix’s work day is routine and boring for the most part.  He does make a slimify serum, which he immediately drinks.  Then I notice that he already had two serums in his inventory that he had made previously.

The only excitement was when he started a fire trying to transform a broken fossil into something else.  He ran away before being sent back into the room to extinguish the fire.

Felix is looking a lot trimmer now.

Felix gives Cali the other two serums.  The first one does nothing.

After being leashed to the toilet and then sleeping off the effects of the first serum, Cali drinks the second one.

Let’s just say, the results are not what she was expecting.

Felix’s aspiration requires him to help Astraea with her homework for four hours and Astraea’s aspiration requires her to finish her homework while focused.  Two birds, one pebble.  Astraea get 1/2 done (that is one of two, not one-half) and Felix helps her for less than an hour, so he is still 0/4.

Felix is/was making more serums but first he must repair the chemistry lab.  Cali will try to get slim again tomorrow.

Cali tries two more serums when she gets up the next day.  Nothing good happens.

She cleans up around the house and gets ready for work.

Felix heads off to work, where he has a good day.  He finishes up all of his tasks and then has time to make another Slimify for Cali.

Then, he uses the cloning machine to make a bunch of cloned copies of the serum.  Just in case.

Not shy about trying his own serums, Felix drinks two synthetic food serums trying to fill his tummy, but they are ineffective.

Felix has to eat his dinner the normal sim way.

Felix earns a promotion to Pioneer of New Technologies, level 8.  He is slowly getting there.

The aliens called and asked Felix to come out and play.

Cali tries again.

It takes two serums to finally achieve her goals.  It might have been easier to just buy a damn ice cream maker and let her eat ice cream, but this is the house of scientists.  Those damn serums are going to work.  They never even considered buying workout equipment and actually working out.

Felix is having a problem with his breakthroughs.  He is 15/16 and can’t seem to get any more.  He doesn’t get the light bulb no matter which activity he does and it has been two days.  It is frustrating for me.  Astraea, on the other hand, is not having any trouble with her aspiration, homework, or skills.  Oh yeah, she is a little genius and top-notch toddler so things are moving fast for her.

Cali earns a promotion to Opening Act, level 4.

It seems like Astraea blew through mental – reaching level 10 very fast.

Belatedly, Astraea realizes she should have joined the scouts.  Well, better late than never.

Cali chooses to do anything that is not telling or writing jokes.

Astraea gets an art table so she can draw six pictures for her scouting badge.  She will switch over to the creativity aspiration once she completes the mental aspiration – just waiting on that A.

FINALLY!!  Damn, that breakthrough took for..ever.

Cali and Felix get some down time for a “down-time”.

Felix stuck the Hygienic Decontamination Pod outside next to the microscope, never suspecting anyone would actually use it.  That is our little genius.

Since there isn’t a toddler to entertain, Astraea earns her social and humor badges by chatting up Felix.

Astraea is 6/9 on completing her scouting badges and has been promoted to Pegasus Scout.  She needs the outdoor adventurer (nowhere to fish in her neighborhood), scholarly aptitude (needs homework but it is the weekend and she is all caught up), and civic responsibility (one more dirty dish).

Astraea comes home from school with a project (must be Monday), which she works on while she is waiting on Felix.  She needs Felix to help her with her homework so he gets credit for his aspiration.

She even completes it all by herself – and it is excellent.  That is the best volcano project I have seen yet.

Felix finishes up his four hours of community service, I mean homework help, and moves to the next tier of his aspiration.

Astraea finally completes her mental aspiration – it took awhile to get that A.  She has six days to work on the rest of the aspirations.  She should probably start with a shower.

She begins by drawing.  (after a shower)

Then she spends some time playing with her toys.

Cali earns a promotion to Jokesmith, level 5 (Comedian branch), which also completes the tier of her aspiration and progresses her up to the last one – three comedy routines and level 10 comedy skill.

Astraea moves on to playing an instrument for five hours.

Oohh, it is time to play the lottery.  What would they do with a million simoleons?  Spoiler: It isn’t something they will need to worry about.  The winner was Hugo Villareal.

Felix earns another promotion – Mad Scientist, level 9.  He is almost there.

Felix had a rough day at work – Adequate they said.  He tried his hardest, but even after testing his newest serum three times, he just couldn’t get it to work.

Abduction #IDK.  I lost count of the number of times Felix has been abducted, and I am not going back to count, but he has only gotten pregnant once.  I keep waiting for another “surprise”.

Astraea completes the creativity aspiration.  She has 2 days remaining until her birthday – she will be working on motor next, pushing to complete it before her birthday.

Maybe they need a second bathroom?

Since it is Saturday, Astraea heads over to the playground to work on her motor skill.

Astraea is racing the clock.  She is on the last tier of the motor aspiration and her birthday is in one day.  She should make it since she has all day Sunday.  She just has to level motor from level 6 to level 10 and get the high score on the typing game.  No problem.

Breaking the computer is not the path to success.

Astraea is making this hard.  After Felix repairs the computer, Astraea gets sick.  She is still working on those last three levels.  The only good thing about being sick is the game has already decided that she will be taking Monday as a sick day, and Monday is her birthday.  So she has plenty of time to get this done.

Feeling a little better, Astraea makes it to level 9 by the time she has to eat dinner and go to bed.  She needs one last level to complete the motor skill and the aspiration.  Fingers crossed.

And that makes three aspirations completed and three skills maxed.  She is not even going to worry about the social aspiration.

She completed just in time because a thunderstorm just started.

Astraea is over being a child, and ready for her birthday cake.  Let’s get this done.

So she huffed and she puffed and she blew the candles out.

About Teresa 1076 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of Boolprop.net since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
