So is season eight the final season? It sounds that way and I don't like it!
Season Eight will in fact be the final season of Our Fair City. We planned out our length and arc early on, and while it has been tough sticking to our guns (we love this world and our characters), we think you’ll be really excited to see how the series wraps up.
Never fear though—HartLife NFP isn’t going anywhere. We are already in the midst of preparing for our next flagship serial, which we’ll start releasing after Our Fair City is concluded.
Dave was a game developer. A good one. He’s the only guy I know who could blend
a game with reality on this level. But I’m scared to think what he actually

demos that came included like the gorillas game where you throw the
banana-bombs back and forth. By the end of middle school, he had a good grasp

always the first to test them out.
So when I
saw the package from Dave at my front door, I wasn’t too surprised.

evening. "The hardware scans depth in the room, like the Kinect. It’ll do

"Augmented Reality Character. Imagine the The Sims, but it’s happening in your home, and you can watch it through
your phone’s camera. The hardware and software scan the rooms you want and
process it into 3D space. Then your character, your ARC, can walk around your

After a bit of processing, a crude 3D character (like the first version of the
Sims) appeared in the middle of the room. He looked around cautiously before

felt like he was there. I looked out into my empty room, then back into my
phone. It was like I was watching an alternate dimension.
so last year during math class we were talking about circles and how to find the arc length (it’s a section of the distance around) and my 50 year old male teacher asks what we use to find this. no one was really in the mood to answer any questions that day, so I took it upon myself to answer it. now note, I’m usually pretty quiet in all my classes, but I’ll answer a question here or there. this is because I tend to stumble over my words and mess them up sometimes. so the answer was circumference, and I raised my hand to be called on. He calls my name and what do I say?
“You use the circumcision.”
my class just stared at me and a couple chuckles were heard from around the room. my teacher was mortified, and just replied “you mean the circumference?”
I said “yeah, what did I say?” and he just laughed and continued with the lesson. I had to turn to my seat partner and asked what had happened. she explained what all went down. now I avoid speaking in classes all together.
