While May was away at UNI, Marci adopted a cute puppy. Welcome to the family, Ski Pole!
May was really happy she was able to be home in time to celebrate the following special event with her family.
Happy Birthday, Ice!
Ice then sat Tad down for a man-to-man conversation. UNI isn’t for everyone and after seeing all the hoops May had to jump through, he decided to get a job at the ground floor and work his way up.
After a successful interview, Ice was inspired to begin composing a new song.
A/N: I regret trying the UNI-at-home mod. May graduated and has the Technology diploma in her personal inventory but … she still has the mood for worrying about grades (a -20 penalty!) and on the career tab shows 0 credits in the Technology degree. UGH !!! I looked online and it seems like the only way to remove this is to go to UNI and then withdraw. And … of course with her having earned the degree, she isn’t able to actually enroll in this particular degree program in order to withdraw from it. What a mess!
May also had a successful interview and is well on her way to becoming an astronaut. With her degree and good grades, she starts as a Squad Leader (level 4) which means she needs to spend the next couple of days working out so she doesn’t embarrass herself in front of her squad.
Leaving the locker room, May sees her friend Jade. It turns out that Jade got married while May was away at UNI. Jade is now Mrs. Shark Racket.
“Shark? Are we talking about the same guy who used to pull pranks and torment girls back in school?”
May learns that Shark is no longer that guy. Apparently he had been acting out because of an unhappy home life and as soon as he was out on his own, made steps to turn things around. He now works at the police station.
The next day …
May gets up while it’s still dark outside in order to go for a run. Getting fit while also learning to function on a different schedule seemed like a good idea when she first thought of it.
“How do people function being up at dark-thirty?”, May wonders.
Later that same day …
Ice graduates from high school with honors, just like May did. Tad has twice the reason to be a proud parent!
The Tin Shack is now a sweet Tin Home, filled with all the necessities a family could need as well as love and care.
