I JUST SAW SCORES FOR PINK AND I FRIKIN' GOT SECOND!!!!! Aaaaaaaah I'm so happy! I was NOT expecting that, especially in a competition with people who are way better than me! Seriously, I'm over the moon right now, I think this has given me a bit more confidence in my work.

And... breathe.

Well, what else has been happening?
I can now show you my Le Raunche Assignment 3. I did have to rush it, so it isn't my best work. Willow is portraying the stereotypical high school 'nerd'.
Score-wise, for last assignment (the CD cover) I came third, which like PINK, I'm very happy with! :D

I actually haven't really been on the internet since Sunday. My life has been insanely busy lately! School, exams, homework & coursework, simming pictures, fundraising, concerts etc. have whipped my life into a frenzy. This is actually the first time I have properly relaxed for a long while. Phew :3

I need to work on my GJWHF assignment, but I think I will do that tomorrow and just enjoy my moment of peace hehe x

GJWHF Assignment 4

It was that time of year - the Miami Springs High Annual Senior Pagent. It always created a buzz around the class. Not all participated, but all watched and admired the pretty girls on stage.

As we stared at one of the posters hanging up around the school, I heard Kat behind me say "Serena, I think you should sign up."

I scoffed. "Me? Hahahaha, you must be joking."

"I'm not. You know what, I think we should all sign up. It'll be so much fun!"

Flo nodded her head in agreement. "Yeah, I think it would! Come on Serena, pleeeeeeeeeeease?"

I groaned. "Fine. It's so obvious who's going to win though." I shot a look at Kat. "You're a cheerleader, oh-so popular and gorgeous, inside and out."

Kat laughed. "Awwwww. You're so kind. But it's not about the winning, it's about the taking part!"

She was just saying that. Anyway, the day of the pagent had arrived. I do have to admit it was so much fun, especially as I was with my girls.
As we stood, waiting for the announcement of the winner, I kept thinking "It's gonna be Kat."
So oh boy did I get a shock when my name was called!! "Serena VanHouston is the new Miss Miami Springs High!"
I was so surprised, and Kat and Flo just jumped on me and hugged me to death. Well, not literally of course. They were so happy for me - man, I love those girls <3
And Alex had promised to record the whole thing for me. Awww, what a sweetheart. I really do have the best friends in the world.

A girl's gotta keep her blog updated...

The title says it all really!
I have some great news...

I am now a photographer for the amazing Sensation Magazine! I'm so excited, I've been waiting for the right time to apply, and this time I got the job <3
I'm pretty sure you all know the magazine, but if you don't, check it out here:

In Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, we had to show what our teen did for lunch.
Again I lost the description, but my picture depicts my model hanging out with her best friends Flo (on the far right) and Kat (the redhead cheerleader right at the front) on the football field.
Creating this photo took me to hell and back. Build mode was being a right dick, and I had to overstuff the household with several extras (which took me ages to sort them all out).
But all the hard work paid off, as I came tied 4th! I was extremely happy, and I think I am starting to show some improvement.

This assignment we have to show our model in a pagent. I am very... stuck. I haven't had a good idea yet, but fingers crossed I become inspired very soon. 

I've also joined cycle two of Le Raunche <3
Many of you know I just LOVED the first cycle, and produced some of my best and most favourite pictures in the competition.
I'm using the incredible Willow. I love her so much it's unbelieveable.

For the first assignment we had to show our model with a male model, connected in a setting and the way we styled them. I had a lot of trouble with this assignment, and re-did it three times before I was even remotely satisfied with it.
I still really don't like it, as I made everyone well aware xD

Finally, in RL, my school have been talking to me about how I could get into Oxbridge when I apply for universities (two years from now).
For those of you who don't know, I'm talking about Oxford University and Cambridge Universtity, the two most prestigious universities in the UK. They are also among the best universities in the world. Think an Ivy League college but a hundred times harder to get into.
I will never get into there, and I don't know why my school are trying to build my hopes up. Not only do I need A*s across the board when I do my A-Levels, but there is a gruelling interview process.
And these universties are so posh and formal, and I'm... not. Ha.

And anyway I want to stay in London. The idea of not having regular buses or underground trains to take me to places is excruitiating. I mean, if Oxford or Cambridge accept me, I would have to go. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity that thousands upon thousands of people would die for.
But it isn't going to happen.

Not. Going. To. Happen.
