EPIC Tripp: It’s Just Business – 6.04

Post 6.03 | Rules | Family Tree | Post 6.05

Hello and welcome back to EPIC Tripp! Last time we had a wedding and a new years celebration, and some birthday’s too. This time we get started on the next generation and keep working on our goals. Speaking of the goals, let’s take a look at what those are:

Generation 6b – It’s Just Business

  • Heir(ess) must join Business or Political career. Spouse may enter the job the heir does not choose, or any previously unlocked position.
  • Once heir reaches level 10 of chosen career, computers, tablets, and video game consoles are able to be purchased and used.

Bonnie is in the business career, and Rene, her husband is going back to the gardening career. I want him to do the Botanist branch of the gardening career that Kiana maxed all those generations ago.

We start right off the bat, however, with Miranda finishing up her current aspiration. We go ahead and give her the Master Actress aspiration next (I think, although I’m not 100% sure I wrote that down right.)

Regardless, still in her party wear Miranda goes out and bonds with the bees.

Miranda: *cackling* Yes my pretties, bond with me, do my bidding!!! Hahaha!

Oh yeah, Miranda is enjoying the “evil” bees far too much.

Frank pops by for a visit, and Remington, who had run away, comes back home. Miranda is out to great both of them and give some love to Remington.

Rene heads out to start his work tasks of tending all the plants, watering, harvesting, weeding etc. I think I’m going to like having Rene in gardening. Initially I was going to make him an astronaut, but he’s lazy, and that doesn’t really fit, not that a botanist really does either, but at least he could work from home and it’s not based around his fitness.

Then, before I could catch her, Miranda and Frank head out to Cornelius and Miranda tries to take the cake. Luckily the cowplant spits her back out drained, but unharmed, for now.

Rene then needs to start bonding with the bees. If he is going to work in the garden and get anywhere at all without getting attacked all the time it’s time he starts that. I would also like him to make friends with Patchy at some point.

Bonnie spends some quality time with Remington. Not really sure why he ran away the last time. He is a SPOILED cat, and doesn’t have any traits I would expect to make him a wanderer. Oh well, he’s back to his pampered life now.

Frank’s daughter is born into the family, a little baby named Ruth. She is the newest Tripp, and it’s fun to start having heirs to follow a little more.

Since this generation was business or politics, Ruth is named for Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Although not REALLY in either business or politics specifically I figured it was close enough for a spare.

Bonnie is rather quickly making her way up the Business ladder. I believe her next promotion comes with the choice in which direction her career will take her, and I’m excited to already be half-way to unlocking the next set of things.

Miranda has become quite the social butterfly in her older age. She chats with the ghosts, and then with the Day of the Dead celebrators. We are trying to get those last couple of skulls, but seem to just keep getting the same ones over and over now.

She apparently likes to keep busy as she also works on repairing and upgrading various objects around the house, and her magic keeps our broken plumbing, thank you ghosts, from getting too out of hand.

She also picks up the slack left by the rest of the family as we try and juggle jobs and the large family garden. I am still shy ONE plant, the plantsim fruit, and I am bound and determined to get it!

Bonnie is feeling the little bit of weight she has put on and double’s her efforts to work it all off. She jogs on the treadmill nearly every day, so you would think she would be in better shape then she appears to be already.

Since Miranda needs to go back to work for her aspiration, we pick out an easy commercial for her to appear in, and isn’t it funny that after all of this time, Miranda is a blonde for a role. In all her active years up to this point they have changed her blonde hair, but now that it’s gray, they make her blonde.

Rene is the next one to get a promotion and he is on his way up the career ladder himself. I will probably have him work from home a lot more as the family grows some, but if I remember correctly, he needs a computer sometimes while working from home, so I need Bonnie to get through her career quickly.

The two spend a fair amount of time together and Rene works on reading books. He has the Nerd Brain aspiration after all and we need him to get through some book reading.

But in the evenings he is all Bonnie’s. These two really are cute, and very affectionate with each other. I really do see Bonnie as being “evil” in name only. She is actually a very caring person.

And then she announces they will be parents before too long. That’s right, our generation 6 is on the way. Will it be a girl? I don’t know that I am going to influence this birth, especially since they can have any number of kids now.

Miranda heads out and does a “scene” for the public. It’s a dancing scene, and really the only one to see is is Abby. Still it counts for Miranda’s aspiration and she is that much closer to finishing another one.

Bonnie plays chess with her mother to get her logic skills up. She needs more if she is going to reach the top of the business career. Rene watches some TV instead. I’m not really sure what he’s watching, but it could have been premier day.

We end this update with the knowledge that Frank is now an elder, and his little girl, Ruth, is now a toddler! I will get a picture of her next time I am in the game, as she looks like she’s just adorable. It’s probably time for another trip to their home.

Next time Bonnie should give birth to her first child, and hopefully we will make more progress on her career as well as Rene’s career. Thank you for joining me. I know some of my posts are a little shorter lately, but I haven’t had a ton of time to play, but don’t want to leave you hanging either. Happy New Year as well!

I have been playing sims since TS1 and even played a little bit of the PS2 version and the mobile versions over time. Once I discovered challenges for TS2 I never looked back. I love the sims, the families I've been able to make, and play through the years and connecting with people about them. I work from home doing Salesforce Data Validation for my company, have 2 cats I adore and have a million hobbies I feel like I will never have time to completely explore.
