Are you supposed to get the progressive goals before the mystery box? I have completed the first week of the mystery box goals and am not that impressed! But i haven't had any progressive goals yet, although i can see the tv in the home store...

It's an insurance company, most known for car insurance, also boat and motorcycle insurance. They have semi-annoying commercials with a really annoying (to me) spokeswoman, named Flo. I only had 1 Sim without a TV, by choice, so I put the Progressive TV in her house, just long enough to do the goals. She hasn't turned it on since :). Bought 2 cars since they were free, but several Sims refused to drive it and I had to keep moving it around until a a Sim would get in it, so I could do the 3 Sims driving at once. Amos liked it and Seamus finally accepted the other one after it was refused by most of the women. I had Irma steal Rosemerta's Prius to be the 3rd driver and she liked it so much, I bought a Prius for her own household. I think Seamus took it for the promo, since he's an actor he probably thought he would get some attention in the big ol' ugly car.
I think, therefore, I Sim! (Or I did before they told me to "harvest" them)

When I tried the chasing cars after the update, several sims refused to drive, too. But they all should drive a luxury car. So, the reason is not the ugly car.
At least I had 5 drivers, but then my game crashed while collecting from the notes. All sims had left their tasks, so I had to reset the game. I had a fresh cloud save and I didn't really lose progress.

Sorry if I've missed this info, but does anyone know what hobbies a teenager can do?

Even though the game is basically made in Australia it follows the American social norms...and if American TV and movies have taught me anything it's that their high school students don't wear uniforms. How else can we distinguish the stereotypic ale cliques?
