Here is my entry for Bethy and Tim’s Chase Ryan Challenge.

I would like to introduce Miss Jae Byun

Bookworm | Green Thumb | Great Kisser | Nurturing

When people think of Jae, they think delicate, quiet, and sweet. There are few individuals as kind and tenderhearted as this shy teen. She loves the color green, fruit parfaits, and soulful indie music.

Jae lost her parents in a car accident when she was nine and has ever since been in the care of her grandmother, Hana Byun. Her grandmother is rather strict Jae but only because she worries for her. Jae gives her trust a little too freely at times and often puts others before herself which has lead to many a heartbreak growing up. Jae lived in Sunset Valley along with her grandmother for a good few years, however recently her grandmother, who is a police dispatcher, was transferred to the precinct in Appaloosa Plains. Needless to say the pair had to pick up and move, starting over in their new town. Jae took the move in stride, though she does get homesick for the valley, missing her friends and her old high school.

While life is not always fair, Jae is still a very cheerful and optimistic kind of girl and hates to see anyone else upset or sad. She is very carefree and loves to spend time with those close to her. Jae is a very studious girl and has always excelled at school, she loves to read almost anything and aspires to be a teacher when she graduates. When not at school it is easy to find her at the library or in the garden at her home, her two favorite places in the world. It was her grandmother who taught her the the basics of gardening when she was small and ever since she’s been digging in the dirt and usually turns up some beautiful flowers and stellar produce.

Her quiet nature and recent move to a new town hasn’t provided her with too many friends as of yet and often feels too shy to talk with the other kids at school. Though her grandmother hopes for her sake that she meets someone soon that will bring her out of her shell. Maybe Chase might be the one?

Why do I think you should pick Jae?

Jae is a sweet girl with a lot of love to give, I think any sim would would be happy to call her their own. She’s the kind to put her whole heart into things and when she falls in love I know it will be with everything she has.  Their traits and personalities I think will balance each other out well and keep each other grounded which I think is very important. And well, I am such a sucker for “opposites attract” type romances ^_^

*on a personal note,  Jae was loosely inspired by my roommate who is bi-racial, half Caucasian, half Korean so hopefully that reflects in her appearance. She actually looks a lot like my roommate lol. SPOILER ALERT: she’s a drop dead gorgeous Young Adult so… hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife.

I’m a dragon. You’re a tiger. Even if you’re not by my side right now, I will leap through space and time and always be by your side. These feelings will never change.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984), 365 Film Challenge (2.365)

My favourite quote from the film:
“Every one of us relies on water from the wells, because mankind has polluted all the lakes and rivers. but do you know why the well water is pure? It’s because the trees of the wastelands purify it! And you plan to burn the trees down? You must not burn down the toxic jungle! You should have left the giant warrior beneath the earth!… Asbel, tell them how the jungle evolved and how the insects are gaurding it so we won’t pollute the earth again. Asbel please!”
