I have started compiling a little list of things that I need to get done, and that list is just staring at me. Taunting me.
I feel like I have a lot of things that I need to update on in here, but I am just going to graze over them!
A lot of you know me in passing by interactions through competitions, stories, and other places in the forums, but some of you know me very well, and you know there are things in my life that have been hindering me from functioning properly lately. I might as well blog about it:
My fiance and I have split up. After 5 rocky years, it was time for it to be over. I am now in the confusing process of putting my life back together, and getting everything straight. For the past couple of weeks, I have been in a daze, even though I knew that I was going to have to end this toxic relationship at some point. Because of this, I have had to drop some things that I love dearly, and some other things came to and end for other reasons.
I will say this - this is another reason why things that happened hit me so hard. I was already frail, and I felt like I was being kicked when I was down. But I will be ok, and I will rise above. I just want to put EVERYTHING in the past behind me, and move forward. The future is all I can focus on right now. So with that in mind...here are some various goings on from the sim-life of me!
In my modeling news:
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Cycle 2 has ended with PistolKitten being declared the winner! She was a fabulous competitor, and I was so excited to have her compete in this cycle! It was amazing to watch the other contestants grow as they became inspired by her mad skillz. After some thought, I have decided NOT to start Cycle 3 immediately, but to give it a break until SEPTEMBER. I know that there are a few of my regular competitors that have mentioned they will be on vacation during August, and I just think it will be easier to start this all back up after school has begun again, and everything is settled. (PK - I am still working on your sig - I will have it emailed to you sometime this week!)
All About Me is currently in the judging stage for the FINAL ASSIGNMENT! *phew* I am so glad that one is over! I really enjoyed it because I got to know the contestants so well through their assignments, and everyone did a fantastic job. I think the final results are going to be really close! :) I have no plans to do another cycle of this competition, but in the future, who knows? Maybe!
Bad Girl Society is now accepting signups! To get involved with that, you can check it out here:
I am not one to make someone join another site, so if you are interested in joining the comp, but not simpure, you are able to email me your assignments, as they will be sent in privately, anyways. So far we have over 20 reserves and about 10 auditions turned in, so I think it's doing well! I am really excited. Phebes and B are on board with me on judging this one, and I think it's going to be something new and inventive for people to try and enjoy. I plan to make this a continuous cycle competition if all goes well!
In other comp news, I am entered in "Strike-A-Pose" hosted by commeuneplume and DrMusix on the officials. It's a really awesome comp so far, and I just have to get my second assignment done before the 2nd. I think I am gonna start doing my comp assignments on my mom's computer, as hers is a lot better graphics wise, than mine. I drool of her smooth simmies! *hehe*
In case you are interested, these are my photos from the first assignment. I didn't do so hot scores wise, as I figured I wouldn't, due to lack of clutter...but I love them! :) I had to use inspiration from the GAP, and it is definitely NOT my "style." I feel like I was able to represent it well, though. I was going for clean and simple, with a lot of preppy style thrown in!
(Talon - the model in the glasses, is my new boyfriend. :-P I feel in love with him in these glasses!)
Stacia is so adorable to me, I just LOVE her! :)
In order from left to right, you have Silver St. Claire (a model that was used in my Sensation story), Talon Lukas, Stacia Rouge, Garnett York (son of Venus and Brad, of "Venus Does Riverview") and a special someone that you will be meeting soon enough. ;)
I have decided that I will limit myself to joining one competition at a time, and judging one competition. I was chosen as a judge for a modeling comp that looks really fun! It's based around advertising, and the host is a really nice girl. It's called "Work It!" and you can find it here:
Check it out, and maybe even join up! It's going to be fun, I think!
In story news, I am working on a Venus chapter, and this will be her final. It's sort of bittersweet, but the good thing is, we will always hear more from her...and I will have more time to work on my legacy! I think this next generation of The Braxton's is going to breathe some life into it! I just know you all are gonna love Blaze!
Another thing that will get done this week, is the Braxton download page (updated for Generation 3) and then I will upload a few of my models that are just sitting around waiting to be played with!
Right now...it's off to play with Venus and get her finished up right!
