Sims Saturday: Graduation Into Entitlement
Ever wonder what the Sims will do left to their own devices? See the story of a young couple unfold right before your eyes.

Welcome to Sims Saturday, a Sims soap opera by writer and longtime RivalCast community member VelvetDove.

So, I'm rounding up on yet again another birthday. I'm stuck in this pattern of thinking about what I want to do with my life and what I have done with my life and where I want to go with my life, over and over and repeat and repeat. I think I'm a fairly decent person, I try to do the right thing at all times. I have never outwardly done anything to hurt anyone or be mean to anyone. I am a good person. That is all that really matters in life right? Not how much money you make, not how many friends you have, not any of that silly stuff. It's about how you live your life, what you do with the little time you actually have on this planet. I have every intention to help as many people as I possible can. I want that to be my legacy, I want people to remember that about me. I want people to remember that I tried to help people and that I was a decent human being. I certainly don't want them to remember that I spawned a couple spoiled brats.
My twins graduate

I know I should be proud that they graduated high school. They truly have no ambition in life. Yes, we have money, but that doesn't mean that they don't have to get out and do anything, does it? Judith is content to live off the money that is in our family. Maybe I should be happy Roger has an inspiration to be popular. That at least requires you to get off the couch and socialize. I don't know what is wrong with these two, or what I may of done, or if there is anything I can do. They act like they're entitled to anything and everything. It should all be given to them, period, no questions asked and they do not have to do anything in return. I do not know where that idea came from at all. Everyone in my family has always worked. We have money strictly because we always worked. They don't care to contribute, they don't care to even try to earn money for themselves. "Our grandparents made this money so we don't have to work". I don't know how many times I've heard that one, while I'm busy making potions in all kinds of weather to get money. Where does this come from?

I got a call the other day from a friend, Nelson, and he wanted to go somewhere and just hang out and talk. It always feels so good to just sit and talk to someone outside of this house. To hear about what other people are doing with their lives, and what they do. I think my life is so far different and removed from everyone' else's in this town, its a nice refreshing aspect into the world around us.

I mean, if you really think about it, two people can be doing the same thing at the same time, in the same place, and yet how they approach things is so completely different. Everyone reacts to things differently, and they all have different perspectives. Not unless you ask, will you truly know where someone is coming from and what they might be getting out of a situation that seems mundane to you, but it could be something HUGE for someone else. Besides my upcoming crisis with my birthday looming, it's nice to have someone to talk to, to just spend time with. He's a really nice guy. I definitely did not mind sitting and talking with him. Of course, as usual, I offer for him to come back to my house for coffee, or something, after the park was closed and we were supposed to leave. I love a good conversation and can talk forever. So, I always hope that maybe everyone will be asleep when we get there, just because I don't like the hassle there seems to be. Forget my ever having a social life, I should never talk to anyone ever again, according to my eldest. I swear they want to run everyone out of the house who might actually want to spend time with me or talk to me. I understand, if it truly is their "You can't be with anyone but my father" mentality, to some degree. They have NEVER seem me and their father together, and I do not count the time Abdul invited me to the pool and I brought the babies when they were still toddlers. They have no relationship with their father at all. But like I said, I would understand to some extent. They are supposed to be adults, not little two year olds.

I would understand also if they were catching me and my male friends doing anything other than talking. I do not understand how they can be so rude, and follow me and my guests around the house and being rude. I don't know if they are trying to discredit me in front of my friends, or sabotage any friendship I have. I don't understand, I don't understand where they think they have the right to talk to anyone who comes into my house like that. There's their entitlement again. I will never understand them. They literally follow me and my house guests around and heckle us or just make rude comments about everything. I just wonder how long after they graduate, can I feel justified to kick them out and have them make their own life somewhere else, and not expect my paying their way through life. Maybe I need to show them a little tough love and finally get the nerve to stand up for myself and make them stand on their own two feet. Then we can truly see how far their entitlement can take them.
