Christian broke up with me last week. He's leaving to study abroad and he felt like there's no point in dragging out our relationship because he doesn't know when and if he's coming back. I know breaking up was the sensible thing to do but it still hurt. I never really expected us to stay together forever but he was my first boyfriend and this is my first break-up so it's going to take some time to get over it.
One of the best things I know nowadays is being greeted at the gate to our house by Minka when I come home from work. "Daddy, you're home!" she shouts and throws her arms around my neck. It took months before she started calling me Daddy so it's like winning the lottery every time I hear it.
This is the first tax season with the new governor Denise Cooper. She's taking the opportunity to meet residents of each household in the Wellington District to make sure everyone can pay their taxes in the most convenient way possible. She doesn't want to run any family into debt because of poor payment planning.
We're all a bit worried about mom. She has been suffering from insomnia since dad passed away. Sometimes she goes to the swimming pool in the middle of the night, just floating on her back and looking at the stars. She says it calms her down enough so she can get a few hours of sleep.
Denise Cooper took over the reigns as the Governor of Wellington from Deacon Burrows who served two full terms. It was an expected turn as Mrs Cooper has worked in the town administration for years now and is also a member of the City Council. Mr Burrows on the other hand announced his retirement from the town politics.
We bought this house a little over a year ago and we just love it. Living in an apartment was fine but living in our own house is so much better. As an added bonus we live next door to Janie and Danny. Dixie and Tom also live in the same area.
Shea's been begging us to get a pet. She'd love a dog or a cat but I think at this point she'd settle for any kind of pet. The other day she managed to catch some butterflies into a jar and said they're her pets. She put the jar on the kitchen counter and just stared at it for minutes.

It's been a bit awkward living under the same roof with Josh since the break-up. Zach sometimes tries to be some sort of buffer between us but other times he's so distracted with his studies that he barely notices other people.
It was Zach's idea that I could become Eve's roommate when Kaitlyn moves out. It's sort of a win-win situation for everyone and I'm pretty excited getting out of the dorm and into the real world.
It's been an eventful few months for Astrid Moseley. She graduated from Brixton University with a degree in Philosophy, moved to Exmoor, got engaged to her boyfriend Nicholas Thayer and is expecting their first child.
Liv Harris, 27, has worked long and hard for a break in the music business and it seems that she's finally going to make it. She's become an internet phenomenom after she started posting her songs on SimTube. In January she released her debut EP consisting of four original songs and the title track Big Heart has slowly but surely climbed into the Top 5 on the Singles Chart. Now she's recording her debut album which is scheduled for release sometime in the Autumn.
Our apartment building was renovated a few months ago. We didn't have to move out because they mainly did work on the common area and I just love how it is now. There's a sauna, a small gym and a pool table.
I finally told Madelyn. I had to tell someone and it just felt natural it'd be Maddie. I dragged her to my room after school and we sat on the floor face to face like we always do. I had this whole speech prepared in my head but I got so nervous in the end that I just sort of blurted it out in two simple words.
I should have known that mom would interrogate me about Todd after Mrs Lind saw us kissing when we were waiting for the bus after school. I told her that we've kissed a few times but we're not officially dating or anything. I know mom's pretty cool when it comes to boys but it's dad's reaction that I'm worried about.
It's not like I haven't been out with Todd before but it's always been a group of friends going bowling or just hanging out at Generation X. Todd's really nice and sometimes I'd like to hang out with just him.
We're finally getting a new high school this year. The construction workers are currently tearing down the old one so we're stuck with this temporary lot with a couple of barracks working as class rooms and other necessary buildings. It's not ideal but it would have been impossible to tear down the old building and get a new one up and running during the summer holiday. At least this way we'll hopefully get to start the autumn semester in a brand new school building.
I have a super-duper awesome new computer and have finished installing TS2. Now I just need to put in a few finishing touches (empty templates, CEP and such) and I should be ready to play. So hang on in there, updates are coming! May the force be with you.
