To whom this may concern,

Hello! My name is Jalen Christian Wright born and raised in Seattle, WA to Darren and Patricia Wright. I am writing you today under a very special circumstance that is very important to my family, upon completing high school, I am excited to say that I will be headed off to Morehouse College down in Atlanta, Georgia. As of now my family is beginning to become worried about being able to pay for my college years at Morehouse due to their cost of attendance being $47,952, in which they expect us to pay $42,952 annually. Due to this, my family’s dream of me being the first to go to and graduate from college is now hanging in the balance. My education has become very important to me over recent years because I now know that only through education will I be able to achieve my goal of becoming a civil engineer. Let me tell you a little bit about my story that has led me to this point in my life.

Hey guys!

This is a kid from my school named Jalen, and he is genuinely the nicest person i have ever encountered. He’s gotten into college, and is dreaming of being the first of his family to graduate, but because of this capitalist hell we live him, he’s literally this close to not being able to go. Please help him achieve his dream, he’s one of the few people i know who deserves it!

I don’t mesh and am an old dog (not into learning new tricks) so I am wondering if it is possible to make this rider mower for Sims 3? (I included a John Deere for reference)

A decor object would be fine (hopefully one of them there smarter simmers could make poses). I would really love to have this. *looks pleadingly into the camera*

I need Caryl FF writers help!

Well…more of a challenge! I was listening to my music on the way home from Wallymart and the song “Son of a Preacher Man” by Dusty Springfield came on. It was like BAM! This needs to happen as a Caryl story!!

It could be sweet, or fluffy or smutty…idc. I’d just looooove for it to be done! Is anyone up to the challenge?!?!?

I’m literally begging…on my knees (and it’s quite pathetic)

I saw a lot of people here asking about Kate and William's surname, and I remember reading in several places that royals actually don't have surnames. Theoretically, Kate's entire name now is just Catherine Elizabeth. But they usually use Mountbatten-Windsor or even Cambridge when signing or filling forms, etc.

I’ve answered this like five different times in the past 3 days to be honest, so this is gonna be the definitive answer:

“People often ask whether members of the Royal Family have a surname, and, if so, what it is. Members of the Royal Family can be known both by the name of the Royal house, and by a surname, which are not always the same. And often they do not use a surname at all. Before 1917, members of the British Royal Family had no surname, but only the name of the house or dynasty to which they belonged. Kings and princes were historically known by the names of the countries over which they and their families ruled. Kings and queens therefore signed themselves by their first names only, a tradition in the United Kingdom which has continued to the present day. (…) In 1917, there was a radical change, when George V specifically adopted Windsor, not only as the name of the ‘House’ or dynasty, but also as the surname of his family. The family name was changed as a result of anti-German feeling during the First World War, and the name Windsor was adopted after the Castle of the same name. At a meeting of the Privy Council on 17 July 1917, George V declared that ‘all descendants in the male line of Queen Victoria, who are subjects of these realms, other than female descendants who marry or who have married, shall bear the name of Windsor’. The Royal Family name of Windsor was confirmed by The Queen after her accession in 1952. However, in 1960, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh decided that they would like their own direct descendants to be distinguished from the rest of the Royal Family (without changing the name of the Royal House), as Windsor is the surname used by all the male and unmarried female descendants of George V. It was therefore declared in the Privy Council that The Queen’s descendants, other than those with the style of Royal Highness and the title of Prince/Princess, or female descendants who marry, would carry the name of Mountbatten-Windsor. (…) The effect of the declaration was that all The Queen’s children, on occasions when they needed a surname, would have the surname Mountbatten-Windsor. For the most part, members of the Royal Family who are entitled to the style and dignity of HRH Prince or Princess do not need a surname, but if at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.” (x)
