My test subject eeek

Kacie Addyson recently arrived in Lucky Palms excited to start a new life. Born and raised in Riverview she recently lost the family farm to back taxes. Her parents passed away in a freak storm a year ago. Unable to keep up with the bills and having so many memories in Riverview she felt it was time to start over. She needed a new place and the chance to make new memories to bring her out of the darkness. Poor Kacie has always been quite Unlucky. She is however a Genius and a bookworm. She can be very Dramatic and a bit of a Diva. She loves French Music, Veggie Rolls and the color yellow. She hopes to one day be an Illustrious Author.


A family friend arranged for her passage to Lucky Palms and provided her with a small plot of land. Kacie has nothing but her sleeping bag and her whits to get her though.


Her first order was business was a way to bring in some money and a source of food. The weather was mild now but she knew the desert nights and winters could be very cold. Not to mention she had no shelter from the rain. Her first thought was fishing. She was almost surrounded by water after all. She quickly saw that it was going to take some practice!

Finally she started to get the hang of it.


Where will Kacie's adventures take her? Only time will tell.

This challenge is proving to be quite fun Smile

Kacie was a little disappointed to find out that until her temporary residency permit arrived she could not use any public transportation. She got her exercise in those first few days!

She became quite adept at finding insects. Growing up on a farm has its uses. She was not afraid of bugs.

Her first night was spent napping on a park bench near where she found an abundance of fireflies.

When the sun came up she ventured to the other side of town to visit the science center. While exploring the area she found three different piles of metals.
Walking to the other side of town took her all day and into the evening. She underestimated her stamina on the way home.

The next morning she hit up the ice cream truck. Who said you can not have ice cream for breakfast!

A quick visit to the local pool solved her hygeine needs.

Finally refreshed Kacie went exploring. She located a public garden that evening and was not going to allow the zombies to scare her away.

Slowly but surely Kacie felt she was making progress. After visiting the supermarket to see all the veggies she harvested she headed home to find her temporary residency permit had arrived. No more walking!!!

Looking good Kacie Smile
How could I forget the ever present Ice Cream Truck? Great way to get a cheap meal.
I like the Festival Booths for a quick meal too.
Added a link in the Original Thread so I can continue to follow.

Kacie spent her days exploring town and finding things to sell. She was very happy not to have to walk anymore but was very intent on her next goal. In order to work in Lucky Palms she needed a Workers Visa. It was going to take all her skills and knowledge to save up the 5000 simolens required for that permit! Living in Lucky Palms required a navigating though a lot of red tape but Kacie felt it was worth it. She loved it here!

She started a tiny garden of her own.

She also still visited the Community Gardens on a daily basis however it seemed to be plagued by zombies! She was looking forward to having a home garden.

The summer festival arrived in town. Kacie tried her hand at roller skating.

She needs a lot of practice!

Taking a break she made herself a snow cone.

Her trip to the festival also netted her quite a few flowers. She loved looking for a collecting all the beautiful flowers. They also sold quite well.

Using a portion of her funds she was able to provide herself with some shelter. It was very basic but worked well.





Slowly she was able to start saving funds. She was getting close to the simoleons required for a Workers Visa but she was still unsure what she wanted to do for a living. She did not mind having to garden and fish but her real passions were elsewhere. She had always loved art so paid a visit to the local art museum. She was intrigued by all the wonderful art.

As a child she loved to write stories and it occurred to her that she could combine her love of art and writing into quite a successful career. One evening she made a visit to the local library to see if they hosted public computers. She was happy to see that they did. She started a small blog to practice her writing until she was able to get serious about her career.

Finally after a week of very long days out scouting items to sell Kacie was able to apply for her Worker's Visa. With a sign of relief she decided a night on the town was in order after all her hard work. She met some of the locals and had a ball singing Karaoke.


The next morning she was happy to receive her Workers Visa. The next stage of her life could begin.

Before getting truly serious about her career her home needed a few more upgrades.




Week 2 Day 4 (Before renovations)

I was getting ready to save and move over to another save when this happened! Her poor new kitchen!






Kacie had the fire mostly out before the firefighter arrived. They chatted a bit when things settled down.


No more cooking on unlucky days!

I have a feeling with her unlucky trait that Kacie will never be a true cook lol. She needs to get working on her career so she can afford to eat out Smile

That was right after the fire lol..

Week 2 Day 4

Kacie was very grateful for the all the help she recieved during her fire. She learned the firefighters name was Melissa and they hung out for a bit.

After a while Kacie realized she was still hungry but did not want to try and cook! Off to the diner!

After her meal she set off to the local alchemy shop to cut some of the gems she found.



After her hard work with gem cutting machine a break was in order. She chatted some with the owner of the shop.

Kacie really enjoyed her relaxing break.

Before heading home for the night she went to the restroom. She somehow managed to break the sink! She felt obligated to try and fix it.

After the fire incident Kacie met with the contractor who cleaned up the mess and got an estimate for adding a small second story to her home. She wanted a real bedroom. It still needed some decorating but it was cozy, warm but not as private as she would have liked with the stairs right there!


Day 5 (Family Funds 1193)
First thing in the morning Kacie purchased a microwave. She was still very leery of using the stove. She made herself a nice quick and safe breakfast.


Today was to be spent seeking more collectables to sell. While She could use the computers at the library to write it was often louder then she liked there and she really wanted to be able to write at home. The Summer Festival was in full swing. She happily started collecting flowers even though it decided to rain.


She ducked into the photo booth to get out of the rain.

The late afternoon brought hail and still she continued to collect flowers.

She rounded out her evening with a dinner of Chili Fries

A trip to see the Face Painter

Horseshoes with her new friend Clara

and finally she stopped by the community gardens on her way home.

Her day ended with the collection of 60 flowers, 5 seeds and a new friend

Day 6 (Family Funds 13277)

Days 6 and 7 were spent in her new office bought with the proceeds of her flower collection along with selling the gems she had cut the day before. She was also able to expand the kitchen and add a private bedroom.








Kacie started her first book. A Guide to Lucky Palms. With such a beautiful view as inspiration how could it not be a good book.

Her publisher was pleased with the first few chapters she submitted and she made a total of 20 simoleons. She also netted 6 simoleons from some gem dust that she sold.

Day 7 she completed her first book. Her royalties were set at 51 simoleons a week.


End of Week 2:

Family Funds: 1882
Skills: Fishing 4, Gardening 6, Writing 2
