Select your age bracket:
High School Student for now, who knows what upon graduation.
If you selected “other,” please describe:
I will probably be a gardener like my mother, but I have no idea what the government contract will require me to do. I’m destined to build a house for the city of Simsville in an effort to rebuild the town. If I could pick what I would do, it would be something involved in food. I love food!
How many pen pals are you interested in acquiring?
One or two.. with earning money and building a house I will probably not have time for more than that!
What qualities do you seek in a pen pal?
I honestly don’t know how to reply to this. I guess it would have to be someone who can put up with my ramblings about food.
Do you have a desire to meet your pen pal face-to-face?
If it fits in with the travel restrictions placed on me by the city, I certainly would like to meet them. I do have to be careful about where I travel, though, being that I’m under contract by the city.
Please describe, in as much detail as possible, your reason for wanting to join the pen pal project:
I love meeting new people, and I think it would be fun to find someone from someplace else that might know some recipes I don’t know. Knowing that my letters are getting to travel around the world would just be so neat. When I heard about the pen pal project I just got so excited, and I had to join. My friends think I’m silly for wanting to write to someone who I don’t know, but I think that would be part of the fun – getting to know someone new.
Author’s Note: Caleb is a part of a Drifter Challenge, told in story form. He’s going to be “running” the second generation. He’s an outgoing, glutton, gregarious sim with a teenage aspiration of “Party Animal.” I have no way of knowing what trait he’ll roll for his adult trait as I’m enforcing a random trait roll for the challenge. He will be doing a fair bit of traveling, as I plan to have him visit the city festivals in search of new food recipes in the first half of the challenge, and then he has the Outdoor Enthusiast Aspiration to finish in the second half of his challenge (once his heir is child age). Caleb, obviously, doesn’t know this yet.. but I do. Personality wise, he’s very much into food, and loves meeting new people.. so a pen pal who might be able to talk recipe ideas would be ideal.. or at the very least, someone who can at least put up with him talking about food a lot. I will be weaving his letter-writing into his story. As for how many chapters his story will last, that I can’t say.. but I will say I’m very excited to write his story, since he’s such an interesting sim for a drifter challenge – (Come on, a person who loves food in a challenge that starts from basically starvation rations?! .. Perfect.) I do expect to be writing his generation for a while because I have a lot planned for him. The letters will begin to be sent before he actually takes over for his generation, in other words, while he is still a teen and will function as a bit of an interlude as he grows up.
