Brad Devivio and his girlfriend, Tessa Ramirez just started at Sim State University. How will these two family sims fare in the world of knowledge?
Here are updated YA pictures Brad and Tessa. They make quite a handsome couple in my opinion.
Tessa's father, Checo, arranged for Tessa and Brad to live in a small rental property during their time at Sim State. He also had arranged for the house to be completely furnished, being in the furniture business and all.
Brad's sister, Janet, and her boyfriend, Ricky recently pledged Brad and Tessa into the Annya Var Greek house and made arrangements to move into Tessa and Brad's rental with their daughter, Vinaya. The switch would be made after Janet and Ricky finished up their Junior year. Until then, Brad and Tessa fell into a basic routine. They relaxed around the house...
Watched TV and studied
And ate most of their meals together
When the time came to move into the Annya Var house, Brad and Tessa did much of the same except the Greek house afforded them more opportunity to pursue their hobbies
Brad enjoyed the large TV at the Greek House and could often be found parked on the couch watching whatever sport was showing at the time
Tessa, on the other hand, enjoyed the nicely tuned piano, something she hadn't been able to play since leaving for college
Brad and Tessa did more than just play though. The larger lodgings meant more chores, something Brad wasn't too happy about
Despite schoolwork and household chores, the couple still had time for other recreational activities
they especially liked that the beds in the Greek House were a lot more plush than the cheaply made furniture in their rental.
Being family sims, Brad and Tessa did not heed Janet's warning about using birth control while in college... One night after class halfway through freshman year, Tessa found out that she was pregnant. Of course, Brad was overjoyed at the prospect of being a father so quickly
Tessa, despite wanting a large family, was a little more hesitant of the prospect of having a baby while still in school, she considered the prospect of dropping out and returning home. She called her parents to break the news to them.
Checo and Lisa were somewhat disappointed that their daughter would squander the opportunity of a college education so Checo used his influence to get Tessa into the accelerated program at Sim State rather than allowing her to drop out completely. The accelerated program meant that assignments were accelerated as well and Tessa could be found camped out at the kitchen table most nights working on the never-ending pile of schoolwork
Tessa was in the middle of one of her all night study sessions when she felt her water break
A few agonizing hours later, Carmen Ramirez was born
Carmen was a delightful baby and Tessa relished every moment she got to spend with her new daughter
Being blessed with a beautiful daughter had it's stresses too as Brad and Tessa struggled to keep up with school and the house. By chance one day, just when they were feeling the most overwhelmed, a gypsy dropped off a magic lamp at their doorstep
Brad thought of their future and the large family that he and Tessa would like to have and wished for fortune.
Tessa also had her future family in mind when she made her wish. She couldn't have been happier being with Brad and having the opportunity to start their family so early, but at times the stress was too much for her. Tessa wished for Peace of Mind to get through the hard times that inevitably lay ahead for the family.
After Tessa made her wish, it was time for Carmen's birthday.
Carmen grew up in a lovely toddler that heavily resembled her mother but seemed to have the Devivio nose.
With the genie wish behind her, Tessa took a few deep breaths and realized that life was going to be fine, despite all the stresses they were currently facing.
Scoring: 2 points (1 point for Tessa, 1 point for Carmen)

((I adore this couple they are going to make many many beautiful babies! I have to say though, Carmen really isn't a surprise, with Tessa's lifetime want I was kinda banking on them getting pregnant at Uni in order to get an early start. I was considering just dropping Tessa out but decided against it and opted to put her in the "accelerated" program -- i.e. college clock. Tessa is actually halfway through her Junior year, Brad is going through school normally. This couple has one more round at Uni and then will be moving back to Silvervale. I think Brad's siblings, Frank and Magenta will be joining them next round but I don't know for sure. Here's a little funny:
This cheerleader got frozen when Guy and Sofia were at Sim State and still hasn't thawed!
We're off to check on the Second Devivio household -- Pamela, Jack, and Flora -- next.))
