College life for Pearl, has been interesting, to say the least. First thing she did on campus, was visit the store and pick up some new threads. She knew her dad would certainly not approve of her new powder pink belly showing shirt, but she didn’t care. Being on her own, having her independence brought a sort of adrenaline rush with it. She was flying high with the realization that her future isn’t written yet, she’s in control of her life. All of it was so exciting.
Even in the middle of a study session guys would mention making out to Pearl. She was used to public displays of affection, her parents were practically royalty when it comes to that. But their displays were affectionate, filled with love. These guys seemed creepy. Maybe others came to college just to make out and have free love, but Pearl is here for getting her diploma.
With some time, dorm life managed to take all the wind out from under her sails. It seemed that quiet time was harder and harder to come by as time passed. She tried to work on her term paper, but kept getting interrupted when guys would come into her room wanting to “chat”. They’d break her concentration and drive her nuts with middle of the night interruptions.
Though they are far apart, Pearl still keeps in touch with her family back in Galloway. She talks with them at least once a week, though when they ask how things are going, she paints the best picture she can for them.
For example, she didn’t tell her parents about the partying going on that leaves sims collapsed on the floor. Though Vera doesn’t seem too eager to befriend Pearl, that doesn’t stop Pearl from worrying about her.
When things threaten to overwhelm her, she retreats to her room to immerse herself in her violin music. The music soothes her soul as well as her nerves, leaving her ready to face the next challenge of dorm life.

I have seriously tried to get Pearl hooked up with a guy, but she’s just not interested! Her turn-ons are blonds and witches, her turn off is unemployment. I’ve had her scope room all over campus, and this is the look she gives me, despite having blonds in the room. *sigh* Guess she really is there to get an education. Go figure!
She finished her first semester with a 4.0, but her freshman year with 3.5.
