Believe in yourself

Hey readers, I apologize for not blogging for a bit. Most of my blogs have been my Sims stories. Thank you to everyone who has been following along with the story of The Reese generation. Right now I am currently preparing to return to college and pursue a Master’s degree. I have some of the application finished . All that I need is to write a personal statement and submit my prose. This is something that I have been brainstorming since January. Honestly, I believe that I can do this but, you know that there is always that fear. Can I do this?
Will I get in?

Yet, I spent the past five years wavering back and forth about returning to school. Right now for me, this is a goal that I will achieve. No matter what happens, I am proud of myself that I took a chance. I haven’t told anyone about this because I feel as though I will receive the same feedback that I did in ’08. Those who I discussed this with back then did their best to deter me.

‘You will never get a job with a Masters.”

” Why are you going back to accumulate more debt”.

The fact of the matter is I have to live my own life. Everyone has an opinion but ultimately I make the decision. I believe that I can do this. I do anything that I put my mind to. I believe that if you want something bad enough you have to go out and get it. You have to fight the demons and the negativity. Never give up on your dreams or yourself just because there is no one else who believes in you. My time is coming soon. I am ready for all the blessings that will come.

Take care everyone.

This pic was taken after we all took a family photo.

 

Hey everyone, its Michael Reese here, a few years older and wiser.

I am finally out of high school and ready for the world.

I hope its ready for me as well.

Bella Bachelor is my high school sweet heart.

We’ve been close since elementary school.

I was so happy about graduating that all I wanted to do was see.

Our love was strong and I wanted her to be Mrs. Michael Reese.

She was overjoyed and admired the ring I gave her.

However, all of a sudden, she denied my engagement.

She did not want to marry me and would not tell me why.

I was so heart-broken that I ended the relationship right there.

There was obviously someone else in the picture and I was just a side piece.

I was going to wait a bit before accepting the scholarship for Sims University but, after what happened I just went for it.

I learned because of my high grades I already had 18 college credits.

Plus my mom, Leighton and Mikaela are all alumni so I guess I was a shoe-in.

Immediately, I packed my bag and left.

There was no point in crying over Bella, still the tears fell as I drove away.

Screenshot-426

I do miss them though.

Apparently, given that I have 18 credits I am already considered a sophomore which is a plus,

less time in the University.

This is what I wore .

Mom always says that we are an Avant garde bunch.

Mikaela and Mom made a few fashion statements on campus, so I was told.

I decided to make one of my own.

As you can see my Mohawk is redder than usual.

I took a seat in the back of the class but, the teacher did not show up.

Weird.

Either way, I was right behind a girl named Hannah so that was a plus.

Everyone fell asleep out of the blue.

After class, I took the time to meet another student.

She was cute and really nice.

Screenshot-442

I started gardening to ease my stress.

Screenshot-443

So far so good.

Screenshot-446

I witnessed my first bonfire.

A dash of cinnamon from my garden made it smell so much better.

Screenshot-447

My first party was a pretty good but, I have to brush up my skills with the ladies.

My father had a way with words

and Leighton hooked my mom with his nurturing side.

I wonder what will be my angle.

Screenshot-449

I cooked waffles one day.

They tasted awesome.

Screenshot-450

I am the only normal person in my family.

MIkaela, Miranda, Mom and Leighton are all fairies.

Darryl , Merle  and Lori are all imaginary friends.

Preston and Miranda are both clones

My dad Anoki was a werewolf.

Lindsey was born a witch.

Wednesday was born a fairy.

Morgan is half plant and half Sim.

This is why I want to learn all there is about alchemy.

May be one day I could transform myself into something cool..

or transform others.

Screenshot-451

I am studying Science and Medicine just like Mom.

It’s a little complicated but, I like it.

Thank you mom for the chemistry set when I was a kid.

Screenshot-483

I decided to check out the library .

I just wanted to study a bit but, it was a little too noisy.

Screenshot-484

Gon’ end up a big old pile of them, bones.

Now I sound like that Alice In Chains song.

LOL

Screenshot-487

I made waffles which tasted so awesome.

Thanks Mikaela for teaching me how to cook.

Screenshot-488

Here I am running to class.

Screenshot-489

I went to the gym to work out one evening.

It was packed but, I was able to find one lone weight machine.

Screenshot-490

My plants are growing nicely.

Thank you mom for teaching me how to garden.

Screenshot-492

I finally got to courage to tell Hannah how I feel about her.

She was my first kiss.

Screenshot-493

For our date we went out bowling.

Screenshot-494

She is pretty good.

Screenshot-496

Wow!!! two semesters went by so fast.

Sophomore year is over.

Screenshot-497

I went into the house and passed out in Wednesday’s room , snoring on a rocking chair.

30 credits down, eighteen more to go.
