5.13: Out of Here

Okay, today was so awesome.

Remi invited me and Dom over to check out the new Space Dementia game that just came out. I’d been thinking about using some of my birthday money to buy it, so getting the chance to try it out before I made up my mind was pretty cool.

Getting to hang out at Remi and River’s apartment was even cooler.


It was awesome – there were clothes and trash all over the place, and no one yelling at them to pick it up.

We played for like three hours straight without anyone telling us we had to stop and do homework or go outside.

When we got hungry, River called and ordered us some pizza. No one made us get a salad too. And no one nagged us about how many slices we were taking.

Remi dropped us back off after dinner, but if we’d stayed the night, guess what? There wouldn’t have been anyone giving us a hard time about staying up late either.

Damn, I think I’d do anything to be in Remi’s shoes right now.

I guess the only downside would be living with his sister. Not that I have a sister… But my cousins are the closest thing… And living with them is already a pain in the ass.


Charlie’s just so damn loud. She practically screams when she’s gabbing on the phone with her friends… And don’t get me started on when she sneaks Ben into her bedroom. She’d probably die if she knew what I’ve heard them doing in there.


And Alex is just a total slob. I mean, I’m one to talk, right? But seriously, her room is just a disaster area. And she snores like a goddamn freight train! Guess I should be happy I share a wall with Charlie, all things considered.


Tony would probably be the least-annoying to live with… But she’s just… kinda boring. I’d need to live with someone who actually likes to have a little fun, y’know? Play video games. Get drunk. Stay up way too late. Have a party… Yeah, definitely not her style.


I dunno. Remi says it’s really not so bad living with River. From what I’ve seen, the two of them really don’t seem to mind each other too much. We had a lot of fun tonight.

And I guess if the trade-off is not having any adults to deal with, I’d be able to suck it up and do it too.


I just can’t wait until I’m old enough to get out of here and live on my own like they do. I mean, I love Tante Joce and grandpa and everyone else… But I’m just so sick of being babied all the time. I wish they could understand that I don’t need them hovering over me and trying to control every freaking detail of my life.

I’m sixteen. I’m practically an adult now.

And I really think it’s time they start treating me like one.



A very Merry Christmas to all of my readers who celebrate! 🙂

Because of the holiday, there will be no new chapter tomorrow. However, to make up for it, we will have a chapter on Tuesday the 27th, in addition to our normal Wednesday chapter. 🙂

    1. Haha Zayne definitely isn’t as mature as he thinks he is… but don’t tell him that!

      And he is a typical teenage boy who likes playing video games and getting into trouble haha so to him, reading is boring 😛

  1. Mery Christmas! 🎅

    I loved seeing the widely different personalities of the triplets! (If the game gives you multiples of the same sex again, you should make them identical. That would be fun).

    I am sure Jocelyn and Mark as well as everyone else are wildly overprotective. It will be hard to let him have too much freedom. Every time they look at his face they are reminded of what he lost. They are trying too hard to make sure he knows he is loved and are smothering him. He has been complaining about being babied for awhile now. Curious to see how it plays out and how he strikes back to find some independence now that he has had a taste of it. I see lots of drama coming to a simlit near us soon! 😜

    1. Thanks Audrey! I loved making the triplets so different 🙂 (the traits they rolled helped a bit with that too!) oh man, identical? Haha we’ll see. Maybe someday!

      I definitely think the family is pretty protective, and Zayne feels it. I also think he over-compensates by trying to be way more adult than he actually is… definitely a dramatic combo 😉

  2. I have a grandfather in a very academic kind of field too. I’ve never been raised by him but I understand the pain. 😛

    But Zayne, it’s fun to mooch off your parents/guardians! Little to no rent and free salads to go with your pizzas? Hot damn!

  3. Merry Christmas! Being a teen is hard, I wouldn’t trade with Zayne – it seems near impossible to find your own way when everyone has an opinion on how you should live your life haha! Admittedly even as a “grown-up” my apartment is much like Remi and River’s 😀 we’ve only seen snippets so far but it does seem Mark and Joce are more strict with Zayne than the girls – which, as Audrey pointed out, makes perfect sense!

    1. Haha yeah being a teen can be tough… there are some advantages too I suppose… but Zayne definitely isn’t seeing those right now 😛

      And i do think they’re more strict/protective with Zayne overall… partially for the reasons Audrey mentioned, partially because they’re older than him 🙂


  4. Merry Christmas to you too 🙂 we’re actually eating dinner in about 15 – 30 min 🙂 and then laver we dance around the Christmas tree and open presents 🙂 Hope you All have a Lovely time with your families ❤

  5. I’m really excited to have you reading again, Cat 🙂 And yes, Zayne picked up on that name from Luc. I think it’s very bittersweet for Joce to hear that.

    Merry Christmas to you too 🙂

  6. I lost it at “I’m sixteen. I’m practically an adult now.” I remember thinking like that but I just look back and laugh. 🙂
    Oh Zayne, you have quite a lot of growing up to do.

    1. Hahaha yes, we all had those moments, didn’t we? Gotta love Zayne. He’s still such a kid, but he wants so desperately to be an adult!


    1. Haha exactly — I really love writing the strange irony of Zayne. So immature yet so eager to be an adult! Hopefully this won’t lead to anything self-destructive though!

  7. “I’m sixteen. I’m practically an adult now.” LOL.

    There are perks to living with parents. No rent, food is always there. Don’t knock it yet!

    Hope you had a great Christmas and have a great New Year’s Eve! 🙂

  8. Loved the interplay between the tonight and past pictures, really helps drive home the comparison. Plus he is frowning in the sepia and smiling in the now ones. Haha. Oh Zayne, if you think it’s better to be an adult…well you’re not entirely wrong, but you’re focusing on the wrong things. If you eat pizza every night you’ll get tired of it after a week. Alternate with ice cream. Nods. That’s what us adults do.

  9. Zayne is definitely going to be a problem isn’t he XD reckless “adulting.”
    That apartment is gross XP
    Oh dear, Charlie!! With how big your family is HOW do you get away with that?
    I love all of them 🙂 They have such character even if they will cause trouble xD
