"Welcome to all you Simvillers! I am your host, Kristofer Taylor, class of 2001 and I'd like to personally welcome all of you back. I know there's definitely many memories to share, but this class reunion won't be your traditional reunion get-together party. As many of you may have heard, I've spent some time doing a bit of modeling and most recently, spent some time in the Big Brother House. Having been inspired by my own recent accomplishments, I have decided to expand my horizons and host my own show. In honor of this year being our five year reunion, I am opening modeling applications to begin with the Simville High: Class of 2001.

To shake things up a bit, look at this as an opportunity to show all of those "bullies" or "haters" just how hot you've become! If you were known as the class clown, the geek, the nerd, the slob, or just want to show everyone how much you've changed, please join us! Miss out on being named homecoming or prom royalty? Here’s your second chance! Maybe you were the homecoming queen or the guy every girl was hoping to be asked to prom by…we'd love to see if you still have what it takes! That's right, there's room for the honeys and the hunks!"

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

From Kristofer's explanation, it may be a little difficult to understand exactly what's planned to happen here, and I want all those who want to join or who are thinking about joining, to know exactly what will be required beforehand. Things may be a bit different than your normal "beauty" contest, hopefully making it fun and interesting. There may also be rounds that include a small bit of storytelling.

Timeline:

Applications: July 18-July 25 (may be extended through first round if necessary)
Round One: "Remember When (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=955120&postcount=58)" July 23-July 29
Round Two: "Life Is Like a Box of Chocolates (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=964691&postcount=230)" July 30-August 4
Round Three: "That's What I'm Doing These Days (http://www.forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=972176&postcount=313)" August 5-11
Round Four: Final Round: "If I Could Turn Back Time" August 13-18

*There will be eliminations for each of the rounds 1-4, but all pass through the application process. It's to be a "class reunion" type thing, so we want to actually get to see everyone again. ;) *

**All rounds will close at 9PM Central Time to allow for me to pm judges**
***I have tried to grant enough time for each round to be completed. An hour or two extension may be possible, but please let me know in advance via PM if you will be needing one.***

The application and the first round will showcase your Sim as they were seen in high school or by whatever "stereotype" they left high school known as. They may have been the nerd, the jock, the tomboy….the sky's the limit…..just think of what kinds of stereotypes or cliques you find in a high school and fit your Sim into one. Only one person may be the homecoming queen/king and prom queen/king, so if you want one of those roles, they're first come first served! (Prom royalty is filled, but still room for homecoming) Whatever you choose, you will need to stick with it to the end though, so pick one you can have fun with! The other rounds will show your Sim as they are now, with maybe a bit of a twist. The rounds will pretty much be chronological..meaning, your teen pics will be in the first couple rounds, the adult at the end. Although, for the Application, you will need both as we want to see what you look like now.


Your Sim will be pictured as both a teen (HS senior: ages 17-19) and an adult (college grad-ish: ages 22-24), so Sims from the ages of teen through adult will be accepted. I am kind of going out on an “on-your-honor” limb here to change things up a bit, so I will give you a couple options. Please don’t abuse them!!

Option A: Seeing as how most people generally start their Sims off in Bodyshop, you may create a teen version of your Sim first. After the teen is created, you can clone that same Sim in Bodyshop, and then make the clone an adult. This will allow you to have both Sims available to you should you need. If you do this, however, you must use the SAME SIM for both. If, when it comes time for the adult portion, your Sims look nothing alike (this will be up to the judge’s discretion so be warned!) you may be eliminated. I want this to be a fun contest and enjoyable for all, but want it to be as fair as possible so am trying to be as detailed in laying it out as possible. I know some Sims can be slightly distorted with age transitions, but sometimes that’s the fun in it!
No plastic surgery please, keep them as they are!

Option B: Create your adult Sim and try to make them look like teens by way of clothes, hair, make-up (or lack thereof).

Option C: If you are wanting to use an in-game born Sim, you can use them as a teen, then age them to an adult/young adult or let them age naturally if they’re almost grown.

**However you choose to accomplish this is up to you, just please respect my wishes as the host and don’t alter your Sim between ages (apart from the obvious hair/make-up/clothes).**

That being said….onto the important stuff!

 All Sims must be your own work and creation. No using Sims from the contest sharing thread or ones you have downloaded anywhere else, even if you've tweaked 'em up. Your own creations only!

 Again, please, no plastic surgery from HS to adult!! Be honest and fair!

 You may enter up to two Sims (though, since beauty contests generally run a little heavy on the female side, if you are entering two Sims, at least one must be a male- think of it as an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone if you don’t generally model males ;) )

 Some photo-shopping will be required. While it will be required in some rounds, it won’t be anything too challenging. Mainly, you will be possibly resizing and cutting/pasting to combine more than one picture together. You are strongly encouraged to use in-game backgrounds in your pictures, rather than cutting your Sim out and putting them on a background you've found online. (Judging will include your creativity in the picture as a whole, so feel free to include that lime-green sofa you have yet to have found a use for but downloaded because it looked cool. :P)

 Give your Sims a definite personality! Don’t forget, you want to make yourself remembered to your classmates! The more you can express your Sim's personality through answering confessionals, posing, backgrounds, clothes, etc, the better you will do! I will add as well, please think of the other applicants as your former class mates. For some of the confessionals/tasks, you may be asked about who you were most surprised to see or something of the sort. You can pick someone else to form a "storyline" with if you wish. For instance, maybe Jessica and Mary were best friends in high school and haven't seen each other since graduation. I want this to be a fun and interesting contest, not just an "I win, you lose" kind of thing, so be creative.

 Have fun! Enjoy the contest! It is my goal with this contest, (my first time as a host) to have fun with everyone and hopefully give everyone who takes part, something to have fun with as well. If you have any questions, please send me a PM and I will do what I can to help you out. I know many of you are here for a star, but please remember while this is a competition, we are all here because this is something we enjoy. Don’t ruin it for others!

 Judging: Remember five years ago? The prom/homecoming king and queen days? Who will reign this time around? My plan is for there to be a similar type of thing here: one male and one female winners as the king and queen, but that depends on how many people step up for a shot. Judging criteria will vary for each round, depending on the task assigned and will be PMed to the judges at the close of each round. The emphasis over all is mainly your creativity, how well you express your character's personality, how well you execute the assigned tasks, be it in picture AND through story.

Family heritage/origin:
Scottish & Irish

How long did you attend Simville High?
I attented Simville High for 4 years; 9th through 12th grades and graduated with honors.

Current age: Just turned 23. (Happy Birthday to me!)

In high school, I was known as… The Prom Queen, the Straight-A student, Senior Class President, Head Cheerleader and all around over-achiever! I guess you could say that I was popular, but I don't think anyone would've call me stuck-up.

In the last five years, I’ve… I attended Sim State University, earning my degree in Fine arts, and graduated Summa Cum Laude (of course!). While in college I pledged and got into the Tri Var Sorority, being voted it's President in my Senior Year.
I'm now working as a Curator for the Simville Museum. I had a large part in the successful redesign of the new art displays throughout the Museum. The Board gave me a very handsome bonus for my effort, which I recently used to purchase my own first home! I have a guy I've been dating for a while now, but it is nothing too serious. I don't think either of us are quite ready to 'settle down'.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…Well, I would have to say that my most memorable time in high school was the night of our Senior Prom when I was named Prom Queen. It really was a shocker to me as I thought that Dana (my best friend) would win!

Thank you! Had this lovely young lady in my game just waiting for the right contest to enter. Yours opened and so did the other one I was interested in, so I had to make a choice.... Chose this! :D

(I get up at like 5am EST, so I am always early! LOL!)

Glad to have you! Hopefully you won't be disappointed in your choice. I work 3rd shift, so much of my time on will be on in the evening/overnight and mornings/early afternoon (CST).

*edit*

For those wondering, in making this, it SHOULD have been class of 2002 to be 5 yrs, but being a graduate of 2001, that was all I could think of apparently. Sims isn't reality though, right? So it COULD make sense in Sim years? :P

Name: Rory Eliah Carr

Family heritage: Wealthy British

How long did you attend Simville High: I transferred to Simsville in the middle of sophmore year after having been kicked out of my local HS for being drunk on campus.

Current age: 23

In high school, I was known as... the cute rebel, who sweet-talked himself out of most trouble. I was also the prom king and a decent basketball jock.

In the last five years I've... lived! Mum thought it'd do me good to go to college in London, like she did. A change of place, new friends maybe. London was great, but not really the influence Mum had hoped. I made the best of friends, saw the greatest musicals, drank enough beer for a lifetime, partied at the best places with the prettiest girls. The summers I spent cruising the Mediterranean with like-minded chaps. Now I have a BSc in Economics and am back in the 'hood, expected to grow up and take a position in the family firm. As if! I'm the same as always and nowhere near ready to settle down.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was... prom. Being royalty suits me just fine and the night didn't end until six am the next morning, after the after-party and the after-party after-party in a hotel room for just two... which was then interrupted by a group of friends... poor girl, I think it was her first time.

Yea, that beard looks a little ridiculous now. But back in 2001 all the girls wanted to feel it!

I may look nicer these days, but I'm forever a teenage rebel at heart.

Yup, just realised the "think school pictures" -part. Will possibly change the first picture into something where Rory has his shirt on. I just had to enter this, it looks like a great contest, and I was rushing to be the first jock/prom king. :D

How long did you attend Simville: The whole time, from beginning to end. And lookig back, I must say that it was a cool time!

Current age: 23

In high school, I was known as: the nerdy red-head from the school-paper, quite good actress (I was in the drama club as well)

In the last five years, I’ve: made my degrees in Cultural studies and in Astronomy (couldn't decide for one) and am currently working for the Simsville Times, though I still hope the Space Agency will give me a chance ... Oh, and I started surfing, it's so much fun!

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was: finding stink-bombs in my locker, those stupid jocks found that funny ...

To be honest, hadn't really thought about allowing anything but humans, but allowing others may make things interesting, so sure. Humans, elves, fantasy-types, etc are okay.

How long did you attend Simville? Ive been going to this school since I was right out of diapers. Well not really, but it seems like it: kindergarten through my senior year!
In High School, I was known as... the musician. I remember stealing the best instruments during music class, even in kindergarten!
In the last five years, Ive... graduated from Sim State University of Music and Arts, met and married my beautiful wife and even started my own record label! Not only has my band put out our first CD, but Ive also amassed over 35 musicians who have signed to my label. Life is good!
The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was... definitely prom night. No, its not what you think! My band played during the dance, and it was a blast. I remember Eve Oliver being crowned Prom Queen, and everyone was surprised since we all thought that Dana would win. Eve was so happy. Then Rory Carr got in trouble that night for spiking the punch, but he got out of it - I dont know how. That guy was, and still is, one of my best friends. We got into a lot of trouble Prom night! It was one of the best nights of my life.

In high school, I was known as…

I was known as alot of different things in High School...I was in the drama club, and that was probably the most I ever spoke aloud in public; when I was on stage. My favourite role had to be the tragic hero Hamlet. I just had so much fun with that! Especially when he is supposed to feign insanity! I kind of suprised people with that talent. some I guess, were under the impression I was a mute and just wanted to be left alone so that I might brood, but the was far from the kind of person I was. I was a band geek, and I personally loved Marching Band, I got picked on alot and called a few derogatory things because I chose to play the flute and piccolo. It didn't bother me much...I loved it, I wasn't about to let a few ignorant people drive me away from my passion. I only had a couple of close friends, 3 or 4 at most and the majority of them were girls. I didn't date really, I tried dating one of my close girl friends but we valued frindship more so that didn't last long. I was the stong, silent type and I was always writing. I guess you can say I will be remembered for multiple things.

In the last five years, I’ve…

...done things that mose people can't do in an entire lifetime. I went to college for a few years and got a bachelors in art and music, I've been in and out of a couple of bands, singing mostly because the flute and piccolo are all I can play aside from a bit of keyboards and syntesizers. I went back-packing across South America for three months and got to see rainforests in Brazil, which were breathtaking. I travelled to Europe for four and a half months and saw some of the most fantastic things on earth. Like my younger days I haven't dated much. I've been on a few blind dates, and one girl...I guess you could call her my steady girlfriend, I've been calling and hanging out with alot. She made me a fantastic dinner on our fifth date and I think that's kind of what kept me hooked to her. I love a good chef, and besides, since then I've discovered a ton of redeeming qualities to her. I've written a couple of songs, and an indy band, only pretty famous around my area, picked up on one of them; paid me $150 to let them play it. I would have given it to them for free just to hear it performed. I've done a little volunteer work, cleaning up roadways...restoring parks, planting trees and the lot. I think I just want to get a taste of a little bit of everything before I decide on what I want to spend the rest of my life on. You only have one life, you know?

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…

Well, prom was pretty memorable...not in a positive way I guess. I went with my best girl-friend, the one I mentioned before, and that was where we kind of "broke-up", and I ended up spending the night with my only guy friend, and sadly enough all the jocks that saw us together thought we had come together, so I got alot of hell about that. I also remember spending four hours locked in the football lockers...until the gym coach found me and let me out. No one got in trouble for that.

Name: Scott Tycho FitzBarnaby

Family heritage/origin:
Almost exclusively English, with some Irish and French on my mother’s side – just to make things interesting!

How long did you attend Simville?
I attended Simville High from the 8th Grade, because that was when my parents and I moved from England to the local area (my dad is a doctor and he opened up a surgery nearby). By the time that I joined the school, most people had already formed little friendship groups so I was pretty much left to my own devices where making friends was concerned.

Current age:
23 years, 10 months as of July 2007.

In high school, I was known as…
Most people would say I was a weirdo who didn’t really fit in. But I preferred mixing with the Eccentric (or "Weirdo") Group, what with my tendency to collect odd little knick-knacks and souvenirs and to sometimes act a little strange. In drama, I was also the one who overacted and generally just hammed-up the performances. I guess I did it because I didn’t care what people thought of me and was comfortable with my persona around school.

In the last five years, I’ve…
Been studying hard for my degree – it took a while for me to decide for definite but I eventually chose Law as a career. I would dearly love to be a magistrate some day soon! I have taken a degree in History, too, which is just incredibly interesting. I still have a few more years’ studying yet, but I know the hard work will pay off eventually! I know some people will wonder why a crazy guy like me chose such a serious subject, but I guess I’ve changed quite a bit in the last five years. My girlfriend Marigold and I are also expecting a baby quite soon, so I'm looking forward to becoming a daddy!

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
The day I took what I considered to be the lead in the 2000 school production of Macbeth. I have to say; I made a mean Lady Macbeth, even if I did trip up my skirts and take a tumble down off the stage. But afterwards I got up and gave everybody the thumbs-up which made the whole audience erupt into cheers. Gosh, I was proud of that day!

*Kristofer grabs Scotts hand and shakes it, and gives him a slap on the back. "Good to see ya!" He then turns to Shelby and nods at him. "Good to see ya guys! I was getting a bit worried that I'd be the only source of testosterone in a room full of girls! Well, not that that's really a BAD thing, but ya know...."

Welcome Amalinaball and Kasumi Sado! Good to see you join!

Amalinaball-I think your full body shot looks fine, you don't have to change it if you don't want to-it tells alot about his teenage interests. It's really the sort of thing I was thinking of for that particular picture.

Name:
Adelaide Montgomery

Family heritage/origin:
French Canadian/Swedish

How long did you attend Simville?
I attended Simville from 9th to 12th grade.

Current age:
I am 22 years old.

In high school, I was known as…
The “Artistic Maverick”. I was the girl who always had paint on her fingers and had a pen and paper in hand. I wrote poems and short stories for the school paper and created the school mural. I ran the book club and art club for the school.

I always have been a little eccentric, not caring what people thought of me. I would burst out into a song from my favorite musical in the hall, or jump onto a table and dance (I got detention for that…). Teachers said I had ADD and was too much of a day dreamer. I couldn’t help it; I had too many book ideas to write and too many picture series to draw.

By being unique, I didn't have many friends (besides those who were in book and art club).

In the last five years, I’ve…
Life has been pretty busy these past years, between going on interviews to discuss my books (I've published 3 so far, all which have became best-sellers), turning my first book into a movie, writing my next book (which I'm going to be illustrating), and traveling the world! Life has just been one big adventure for me!


The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
When I got a call on my cell phone during 3rd period American History saying that my book was going to be published! I think everyone down that hall heard my squeals of delight. I did get a detention though for my cell phone going off during class...but I didn't care! I was going to be a published author

Adelaide's very cute, Dreamer91, love the 'dew rag' and her eccentricity! Welcome to the "reunion". Would you mind changing her current age to somewhere between 22 and 24 though? The whole teen to adult thing is undoubtedly a bit confusing perhaps, but I think the necessary ages are in first post somewhere. I've added you to the class list.

Name: Olivia Latrice Cooper (Please call me Latrice!)
Family heritage/origin: I'm black! lol. Really though, my family is from Jamaica. We have all types of races in our blood line, so I'd be listing for hours. My skin color is brown, and thats all I got say!
How long did you attend Simville? We moved from Jamaica when I was 8, so since 3rd grade.
Current age: I am almost 23, can't wait!

In high school, I was known as… The eccentric jamaican chick. I loved standing out, and doing my own thing. I wasn't apart of a clique, and if anyone did consider me to be in one, they knew I was on top. I loved being loud and making noise. I was mostly known for my voice in the school chorus. I was also a member of the dance team. I loved it! I'm missing school just thinking about it! In high school I made a lot of girls dislike me because of my attitude and the way I carried myself. I've always been confident, and I've never looked down on myself. They hated it! I didn't have many chick friends though. The only girls that really accepted me were the cheerleaders and the dance team, since they were just as confident and cocky.

I didn't really put myself out there as far as clubs and academics. I had been modeling since 8th grade, so that took a lot of my after school time, and my weekends, and sometimes my school days. It was great though! I always scored the hottest clothes for our stage plays and what not! Boy do I miss the good old days! I really focused on how I looked! My hair was always nice, and my clothes! The teachers always put me out of their classes for being to wild. I really loved showing off! lol.

In the last five years, I've… modeled for Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY, Betsey Johnson, and so many other designers. The last five years has been a rollercoaster of emotions, disappointment, and tragedy. Everything happens for a reason, and I'm proud to say I've kept my head up along the way. As you all may have guessed, I didn't go to University. (I hated being in the classroom back then, so why waist my time?) Right now I'm taking a break from modeling, and expanding my horizons. I'm working on a few new projects, but I don't want to get into that now.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was… I modeled in the Simville High Fashion Extravaganza!! To this day, I still tell people that was the hottest runway I've ever strutted!

How long did you attend Simville? From 7th til graduation

In high school I was known as...
Tomboy/Female Jock. Jeans and t-shirt kinda girl. Sports and video games were my favorite pastimes. I was more comfortable hanging with the boys. You would find me chillin at the courts rather than the mall. I was captain of the girls basketball team, swim team, and girls softball, I also ran track ( yeah I was busy). Most of the girly girls thought I was gay, but little did they know I "practiced" making out with some of their boyfriends.

In the last five years I've...
Become a fitness trainer, and opened my first gym three years ago. I've released two exercise videos. Currently working on the third. No kids or husband yet. Right now I'm content with my career and dating a few good men.

The most memorable thing that happened me in high school was...
Winning the state championship in both basketball and softball my junior year. It was so exciting, it has never been done before we broke the school record!

How long did you attend Simville? I didn't move to Simville until 10th grade, and I continued my high school career there. I graduated as #1 in the class! Ha!
Current age: I am 23 years old! I'll be 24 in a few months though.



In high school, I was known as… the busy body. I loved to be apart of every club and organization. I was editor of the yearbook, editor of the school news paper, executive producer of the morning news, president of the Key Club, Treasurer of Senior Beta, and I was involved in just about everything except for the drama club of course. My biggest accomplishment was senior class vice president, even though I was shooting for president, of course I lost to none other than a cheerleader! Shouts out to Eve Oliver.

I maintained a 4.0 average throughout high school, and a lot of people refered to me as "the ghetto nerd". It didn't bother me much, just the ghetto part. Back then school was VERY important to me, and I was all about making good impressions, and being known for doing great things, and being the "leader".

In the last five years, I've… lived in 6 different countries! Yeah a shocker, since I refused to go on our senior trip because I was afraid to leave home. I spent a year at Sim State, and I just got tired of the routined life I was living. I dropped out after my freshman year, and traveled for a while. I met my fiancee' in Puerto Rico. I'm getting married pretty soon. Right now I'm just trying to settle down. We have a two year old, and we want to wait until she is at least 5 before we move around again. I am a graphic designer at a public relations firm in LA, thats where we are for the time being. I didn't exacly go by the 10 year plan I used to wave around back in the day.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was… I got caught in the gym making out with a jock. That was sooo funny now that I think about it. It went around school for months! No one could believe that me, Ms. Goody to Shoes could actually loosen up and have a little fun. He was hot to! But not as hot as my man!

Family heritage/origin: Japanese/America

How long did you attend Simville?i started going to Simville High as a junior, my mother and father were in the military and we moved around alot. I remember we had to move at the beginning of my junior year in Japan, I transferred to Simville High when my parents came to live in the US.

Current age: 23

In high school, I was known as: I'm a bit of a recluse, I also tend to emo alot as I've been jerked around from one place to another. I kept to myself, in high school I was known as the "Emo-goth" boy. I didn't like getting close to people as I was always ripped from them, being a boy in a military family isn't easy. I also used to drink alot as well during high-school, some called me the emo-doth-drunk. I was rarely ever sober in High school, and I wish I had been. I missed out on alot and my grades were horrible.

In the last five years, I’ve: Well I've begun my own J-pop/J-rock group, I'm also currently working on a CD and I've moved back to Japan, the country of my birth. I now live in Osaka, Japan, I also do small modeling jobs on the side when I'm not recording or working a gig. I've also quit drinking entirely, it did nothing for me in high school and I won't let it ruin my life.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was: Getting to stay and graduate, my parents finally decided to stop up-rooting me. I got to graduate with all my classmates, i even started to make some friends finally.

Family Heritage/Origin: Italian

How long did you attend Simville? I only spent 11th and 12th grades at Simville. My mother and I had moved to the area shortly after my father was arrested for racketeering charges. Our move was the fresh start we needed.

Current Age: 23

In high school I was known as... I would have to say the wall flower and quite possibly the geek. Always in the shadows, flying under the radar. Quiet, shy...most people never realized I was there in the shadows.

In the last five years I've moved to Vegas to start a life of my own. I worked at three different diners for the first six months I was there. One night, a regular customer of mine started choking on his hamburger. I happen to be the only one in the diner that knew what to do and rushed to the gentleman's aid. I never, in a million years, expected to be working for this same gentleman a month later as his personal assistant. Last year this kind man passed away (sniff), he left me his casino. I am now one of the few women that own and run a large casino in the city of sin. Even with all the casino responsibility I have, I still find time for my social life. I am currently dating a wonderful man and hope that wedding bells are in our future.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was standing on the front steps of the school during lunch period and the wind picking up my dress to blow it right over my head! Luckily for me only a few people noticed.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
when I first transferred to Simville High, my coach caught me going into the boys locker room and I had to explain to her that I -was- a boy. She turned about three shades of red after that.

Hmmm...you sure Ace had nothing to do with it? lol :P

Kaeru: poor girl, I think it was her first time.
Hehe...reading that made me giggle!

Kasumi Sado:I also remember spending four hours locked in the football lockers
awww....Poor Shelby!

NaNaGirl: but little did they know I "practiced" making out with some of their boyfriends.
Haha! You go girl! :P

You all are doing a marvelous job! I love your stories-keep up the good work! I can tell by your enthusiasm that the next couple rounds should be fun to see what you come up with.

Welcome Kakashi, Tinkle, and Honda! Glad to see ya! Love your locker room story Honda...Bet that would have been tough to explain :P I will add y'all to the class list. It's exciting to see so many different faces with so many stories to tell.

I've decided to switch rounds two and three, so Round Two will be the "Life is Like a Box of Chocolates" theme and Round Three will be the "That's What I'm Doing These Days". I've changed it in the first post as well. Scheduling makes a bit more sense and allows more time for the chocolate theme. (Besides, I'm getting antsy to see what you come up with *scuffs her foot a bit*)

**We now have 2 judges for both the male and the female sections. I would still like to have one more for each and a couple EJs to help out if necessary. Welcome Zaggy, Niki, and readysetgo!**

*edit* I believe everyone's been added up till this point to the class list and all links should be fixed now. Let me know if I missed anyone!

In high school, I was known as the geekiest mother and cheerleader. Just somethings I wish I could have left alone back in those days.

In the last five years, I've moved back in with my mother to take care of her while she was ill. After she died I sold the family home and used the money to move downtown to try and pursue a career in modeling and acting.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was when I had concieved a son in my sophmore year of High School, gave birth my junior year, with my long time boyfriend. I was kicked off the cheerleading squad and almost became the school outcast. After I gave my son up for adoption my life began to inch back to normal, but instead of becoming a cheerleader again I ran to Junior Vice President and won!

Thanks for entering Joe! (Had fun with ya in BB ;)) I've added you to the list.

I think I'm going to go ahead and post Round 1 tomorrow at some point. We have a good turn out so far, so a bit ahead of schedule. I'll still accept apps though.

Name: Heather (Robert) Dahl

Family heritage/origin: Half Welsh, Half Norwegian

How long did you attend Simville?
All the way through. Even though my family heritage is European, my parents eloped to Simville when my mother was pregnant with me. I've lived in Simville all my life, even though my parents left to go on the hippie trail.

Current age: 22

In high school, I was known as…
The talented, artistic one! Maybe not everyone thought that about me, but what do they know? I was the one all the girls came to for advice on what to wear! I had thoughts about setting up my own fashion company, but realised that I would be neglecting my other talent. I was theatrically gifted, but missed out on the chance of ever landing a starring role. I was also envied for my excellent taste in music - Liza Minelli, Barbara Streisand, all the goddesses. Unfortunately, my entire-works-of Barbara record collection got stolen when I brought it in to school. Other people just don't seem to have an eye for true talent!

In the last five years, I’ve…
Become officially known as Heather! As soon as I graduated, I began gender reassignment therapy and am now 100% all woman. It feels good to be able to buy womans clothes and shoes without getting funny looks from the shop assistant. I also met the love of my life and fiancee, Evan. He doesn't know about my secret just yet, but I'm sure he'll understand when I tell him. We plan to get married in August and adopt as many puppies as possible. Right now, I'm still chasing my dream of becoming an actress. I've yet to get any major roles, but my agent tells me that there's something big coming up just made for me. I'm so excited!

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
The prom. I lost a bet with my friend, and to forefit had to go wearing a frilly pink gown. I never told anyone this, but secretly I enjoyed that moment so much. It was the first time that I was allowed to let Heather out, and be myself rather than hiding behind the mask of Robert. That's when people noticed that a boy was wearing a pink dress, and I got ridiculed for years afterwards. But I didn't listen to them - I stayed strong and focused myself on the light at the end of the tunnel! And here I am, and we'll see who's laughing now!

For those of you early starters:

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d85/BritskyB/round1.jpg

Kristofer walks up towards the front of the room, a wide grin on his face and a glass of punch in his hand. He takes a microphone out of the stand and waits for the DJ to turn down the song which plays. As the song comes to an end, Kristofer takes a quick sip from his glass and begins to speak. “To all of my fellow classmates, welcome! It’s been a long five years away, though for some, maybe not long enough. Many of us have gone our own ways to do our own thing, “ he continues, while scanning the room, “Though others of us have gone and returned home, or been here all along. Anyhow, I must admit, I’m shocked to see how much some of you have changed. Others of you, “he chuckles, turning towards Rory, “don’t seem to have changed a bit. By the way Rory, you seem to be slacking with age, man! No spikin’ the punch this time around?” Kristofer laughs slightly, before continuing on. “Well, let’s get this thing started! What’s a reunion without laughing at all the crazy things we did in high school? Get out those memory books and scrapbooks, cause you know there were some crazy days back then!”

**********************************************************
“Remember When…”


What’s high school without collections of pictures? Some from parties, some from random acts of mischief, others just taken for fun. For this round, you will be creating scrapbook/memory book pages for various themes and occasions. The don’t have to be anything too fancy. Think of this as an assignment given your Sim in 4th hour Home Economics class right before lunch.

Sure, for some of the guys this might seem like a “girly” sort of thing to do and they may not even have been that good at that sort of thing. For those whose character is the “artsy” type, maybe your pages would have been covered in small little borders, fancy ribbons, themed cutouts, etc. On the other hand, the jock who might have had no interest whatsoever, might have uneven edges, random things glued here or there, whatever the case may be. Consider these pages as having been made by your Sim rather than by you. For instance, if you would put pink backgrounds and ribbons and flowers on your scrapbook pages, your manly male may not. (The stereotypes given may not be relevant to your particular personality, but used as an example.)

Also, you don’t have to be a professional at “photoshopping” in order to complete these tasks successfully. You will be more so judged on your representation of your Sim, than how well you can get all of the pink edges out from around your Sim when you paste them into a picture. Though the neatness and attractiveness of your pages will account for a bit of your scores this round, I am looking for creativity, effort and your execution of the task. (If you don’t have a decent photoshopping program, Paint.net is a paint-type program which can be downloaded for free and is easy to use. It allows you a few more options than just the plain paint program but still works mostly the same.)


Task One: The Good: “It’s Time to PARTY!”

For the first task, you will be making a collection of party pictures. It doesn’t have to be a “hard core” party, it might be a sleepover, prom after-party, or a get together for the book club-celebrating a long awaited release. Whatever the case, you know how kids tend to be when they get together. Generally, SOMEONE pulls a prank. For these, you may be doing the evil deed- shaving cream, magic marker make-up, or having been the poor victim or a combination.

The Guidelines:

Your page should have at LEAST TWO pictures on it. Though more are acceptable, only TWO are required.

Your Sim should be in each picture and their part clearly discernable (prankster or victim.) (You are encouraged to use your “classmates” in the pictures as well. Though please be courteous to each other and make sure it’s okay with them before doing so. You are free to exchange Sims or just make your own to represent someone, but again, please be sure they’re okay with it.)

Extra decorations (such as buttons/ribbons/cutouts/text/etc) are acceptable, but please remember-what would your Sim have done?
Please include something to “remind” us know what’s going on in your pictures and what was the occassion. This might be a caption on your page, or something written separately.

Task Two: The Bad: “I Smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E”

For the second task, your page is to be those “not so fun, yet memorable” times. The times when something went wrong and you ended up in trouble. Perhaps a prank turned sour or you got something other than an “A” on your report card. That’s right, you get to share those too!

The Guidelines:

Your page should have at LEAST TWO pictures on it. Though more are acceptable, only TWO are required.

Your Sim should be in each picture and their part clearly discernable (prankster or victim.) (You are encouraged to use your “classmates” in the pictures as well. Though please be courteous to each other and make sure it’s okay with them before doing so. You are free to exchange Sims or just make your own to represent someone, but again, please be sure they’re okay with it.)

Please include something to “remind” us know what’s going on in your pictures and what was the occassion. This might be a caption on your page, or something written separately.

Task Three: The Ugly: “Hair’s” the Deal

For the final task, we all have those pictures, looking back, we would love to hide away and forget about. ESPECIALLY where hair’s concerned. Mohawks, rat-tails, rainbows of colors, you name it SOMEONE had it (maybe YOU!) and you laughed about it for weeks. The final page is dedicated to all of those horrible hair days.

The Guidelines:

Your page should have at LEAST TWO pictures on it. Though more are acceptable, only TWO are required.

Your Sim should be in each picture- and at LEAST ONE with them as the focus. The other, they may be a bystander, laughing at someone else’s crazy “do”. (You are encouraged to use your “classmates” in the pictures as well. Though please be courteous to each other and make sure it’s okay with them before doing so. You are free to exchange Sims or just make your own to represent someone, but again, please be sure they’re okay with it.)

Extra decorations (such as buttons/ribbons/cutouts/text/etc) are acceptable, but please remember-what would your Sim have done?

Please include something to “remind” us know what’s going on in your pictures. This might be a caption on your page, or something written separately.

Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was...

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...


Optional Task: The Yummy?

**This task is optional and not required for a complete entry. You CAN however earn an additional three points to your score by completing it.**

One of the few times you might have had in school was at lunch. It was then that you got to talk to your friends and unwind a bit after hours of class. So…about that “yummy” food? Well, maybe not yummy, but it worked to start those food fights at least. Remember those little plastic “lunch tickets”? Show us yours! It was so important you still have it packed away, right? ;P

The Guidelines:

Really, there’s no stipulations for this as it’s meant mainly for fun and a couple easy points. Just use your imagination. Pretty much anything goes (even those icky stains from being spilled on).


If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Have fun!

Not a problem Amalinaball, I hadn't considered that. A school lunch card is a card much like a credit card or similar that you can put money on your account to buy school lunches. Depending on the school, it usually has the students picture, name, school name, etc on it. Hope that helps! For the optional task, use your imagination. You aren't really going to be judged on it. It's mostly for fun. You get the points pretty much just for doing it!

Name: Keladry Mindelan

Family heritage/origin: Irish

How long did you attend Simville? Only high school. I went to a Catholic school for 1st through 8th grades and a Montessori school for pre-k and kindergarten. My mom wanted me to get the most of different beliefs and teaching practices... I guess I didn't do so well, considering I got suspended my 8th grade year and had to complete my classwork at home!

Current age: 22

In high school, I was known as… The yearbook and newspaper photo editor. I was the girl at all the events with a camera permanantly attached to her face!

In the last five years, I’ve… Graduated from college, gotten married and I am the head of the photo department at Simmart. Its great work and I love all the people that I work with.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was… I got to take the big group senior class photo my junior year. They all stood out on the football field and me and some other photo kids went up in the press box and my photo was the one chosen for the yearbook and the printed picture that the seniors bought!

I'd be especially thrilled to have Eve (for a prom royalty pic) and Ace (so he and Rory can go pranking together).

If someone can tell me where to share her, I would. (As long as you're all nice to her! She was made from my avatar sim (my fave sim ive ever made) so Im a little protective of her! LOL!) Also, I have her saved, but it is the adult version of her, so if anyone wants to use her, they will have to have Insiminator to age her down to teen for pics... Sorry!

I uploaded Rory to the Contest Sims -thread, so he's up for grabs. I'd also appreciate a PM with the general idea of what you're going to do with him unless you just use him as a prop standing/dancing in the background. But, like, if you make him do a prank or be a victim, asking mgiht be nice :D Can't wait to see more sims uploaded. MissTech, having Eve as an adult would be just fine, and I'd be gentle to her :)

Edit: Oh, Belle, it'd be great to have Latrice, too :)

-------------------------------------------------------

Name: Jacob Tempest

Family heritage/origin: My parents came from the country of Toran, but I was born in Rosea, so I speak a variety of languages. Toran is of Japanese origin, but most of us are biologically closer to European.


How long did you attend Simville?
9th through 12th grade, I came with my cousin Matthias while our sisters opted for Scarlet Academy back home.

Current age: 22


In high school, I was known as the kitchen king. I was top of the class in Home Ec, and everyone always came to me to find out why their project wasn't quite how it looked in the book. I was the one the kitchen staff came to when one of their workers had gone home ill.

In the last five years, I’ve challenged my father and became a professional cook like him, though I can't quite master his world-famous stew. I fell in love with a pretty young man named Ritsu and we're currently engaged.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was when we had our senior projects. I made a cake as large as a Christmas tree and after it was graded, the entire class pounced on it--there was a mess for days.

Name: Haley O'Miller

Family heritage/origin:
Irish and proud =)

How long did you attend Simville?
Since the age of 9.

Current age:
23

In high school, I was known as…
The goth/alt/wtf?! kind of kid. I experimented a lot with how I looked so I could find the "real me", I suppose. I was picked upon pretty often in freshman and sophomore year, but fortunately by the 11th grade I had found friends that would even out the bad parts of my life. Amen to true amigas!

In the last five years, I’ve…
graduated from college, broken an engagement, and realized that wow, I like girls. I haven't yet told my parents, but it's been astounding to finally be able to be who I really am.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
Meeting Cammy, who continues to be my best friend even if she's all the way in England now. We met after Mrs. ReallyMeanTeacher made us work together on some English project, even though it was clear we hated each other on first glance. Cammy looked like another blonde preppy bit**, and I was deep into my sophomore goth phase. But, as things turned out, we grew inseparable.

Name: Huck O'Miller

Family heritage/origin:
Irish. Very Irish, despite my first name.

How long did you attend Simville?
My parents moved here when Haley and I were in the third grade, so for about 9 or so years.

Current age:
23

In high school, I was known as…
The coolest guy around.

...alright, maybe not. Through the years, though, I definitely think I've won the title of Class Clown and Stuntman Extraordinare. I think it can be rightly said that I acted like a total dumba** through my high school career...but hey, it was fun. And that's what counts, right?

In the last five years, I’ve…
Basically bummed around with some old friends, and meddled a bit in photography. It's nice to be the one behind the camera, for once, and not in front of it.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
Setting up a crime scene in the middle of the school during senior year. We had a chalk outline, policemen, yellow tape-- the whole shebang. Scared Simville High totally sh**less for about a week, haha.

Thanks ever so much for the lovely avatar - I'm so proud, no-one's ever made me my own special avatar before. :D
Gerbera - a report card is something a student receives at the end of a term to show them how well they've done academically in all their subjects - ranging alphabetically from an A (which is highest) to an F (which is a fail). So if you were very clever, you might get all As and Bs. (ps - I sent you a PM)

Ah, the tale of my glorious lunch card. It was a pretty ordinary card until I decided to write something witty on the front...and then it just hit off with my friends. Eventually it just became a little bulletin board for anything and everything I should be aware of. It has some old stains on it too...I'm not going to say they're food stains because, frankly-- knowing our cafeteria menu-- they could be anything at all.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/000_r1HuckLC.jpg

My favorite part of my high school years was...
Making people laugh. Sure, some of my antics were a bit immature and inappropriate, but hey-- laughter is the best medicine, right? And trust me on this one...the carefree teenage years weren't so carefree. A lot of adult issues surfaced during that time, and so I'm glad that I did my best to bring smiles to all my classmates' faces and allow them to forget any hardships they were enduring, be they small or large.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
My friends, and even all those other people who I never really got to know. You know what they say- 'absence makes the heart grow fonder', and that's definitely proved true in my case. Before I graduated, it seemed like it'd be so easy to keep in touch with those pals I saw everyday...but now that they're halfway across the country-- of the world-- I find myself failing to keep in-touch. I guess the fact that just about all of my friends have gone on to be more successful than me sort of stings a bit, too.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be...
Honestly...goofing off so often. A little mischief and merriment never hurt anyone, but I realize now that I spent too much time planning my pranks and not enough time planning my future. Once I graduated, it finally hit me that I wouldn't be able to attend any good colleges, as I had graduated with less than a 3.0 GPA. I could, of course, always pass it off as due to the lack of encouragement my parents and teachers gave me, but that wouldn't be the truth...I just wasn't motivated.
Fortunately, photography has helped me become more of a studious and earnest individual...and the money I get from selling my photos to magazies doesn't hurt, either.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My favorite part of my high school years was...
I can't really say...I guess just having been surrounded by such an interesting, entertaining group of people. I know every class feels like it's the best thing this school's ever seen, but it really feels like the class of '01 is still making its mark, six years later.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
Laughing with friends over things that weren't really funny; constantly sharing updates about who managed to make it onto my hitlist this time; being silly and selfish and generally an annoying, defiant teenage girl. And as much as I hated it then, all the drama that went on in the school made life all that more interesting. And at least when you're a teenager, you're allowed to be stupid every once in a while. I've learned the hard way that being a mature adult means there's not much room for "Wait, was I supposed to do that...?"

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...
My self-confidence issues. I cared way too much about what everyone else thought of me, even though it always seemed like I was the "Well, up yours" kind of rebel girl. If there's one thing that I don't miss about high school, it's having to walk through those halls and have everyone and their sister scrutinize every last detail of your appearance and behavior. Only with my friends did I not care if laughed too much or talked too loud, or had frizzy hair or stuff in my teeth. One thing my friends taught me that I'll always remember-- it's better to have fun -even while looking like a total freak- than to not have fun at all.

Confessional
My favorite part of my high school years was the friendships that I made. I miss all those friends that I've lost touch with over the years, as well as all the great fun we had.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss the easy life of being a teenager. Although, I realize that at the time it didn't seem so easy, however being an adult is so much harder!

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be that I was such a wallflower because looking back I realize how much I missed out on. Being the shy, quiet one definately had/has it's disadvantages.

What’s high school without collections of pictures? Some from parties, some from random acts of mischief, others just taken for fun. For this round, you will be creating scrapbook/memory book pages for various themes and occasions. The don’t have to be anything too fancy. Think of this as an assignment given your Sim in 4th hour Home Economics class right before lunch.

Sure, for some of the guys this might seem like a “girly” sort of thing to do and they may not even have been that good at that sort of thing. For those whose character is the “artsy” type, maybe your pages would have been covered in small little borders, fancy ribbons, themed cutouts, etc. On the other hand, the jock who might have had no interest whatsoever, might have uneven edges, random things glued here or there, whatever the case may be. Consider these pages as having been made by your Sim rather than by you. For instance, if you would put pink backgrounds and ribbons and flowers on your scrapbook pages, your manly male may not. (The stereotypes given may not be relevant to your particular personality, but used as an example.)

When doing your pages, please create them as your contestant might have made while still in high school rather than now as an adult. Someone asked, so wanted to be sure everyone understood my request. Looking good everyone!

If anyone is looking for more "classmates" to use in their tasks, you are free to use Kristofer as well. He is on the thread, uploaded as an adult so you'd have to "teen" him in create a family. He was known as a "wild one" in high school, ready and willing to have fun, get into trouble, play jokes. Feel free to use him as you wish.

TASK ONE

:here: My favorite part of my high school years was... starting my band! My bandmates were the greatest guys Ive ever known, and we all had SO much fun hanging around together. One night I was hanging out with my best friend, Berg, and I suddenly came up with the idea of starting a band. He played electric guitar, and we had two other friends who played piano and bass, I played the drums. We had a band! Since it was my idea, I got to use my name (well nickname) in the band name: "Ace of Spades". It has a nice ring to it, no?

But yeah, the four of us had a lot of fun together. We were all pretty laid back guys and were really focused on our music, so whenever we got together to party there was never alcohol or wild things involved. No for our parties, we started out at someone's house or the school music room and jammed for a couple hours.
Jam Session (http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n218/boolPropped/Contests/Simville%20High/TheBand.jpg)

And what do you expect from a group of guys other than pranks, pranks and more pranks! Oh we got each other so good time after time. Three great pranks come to mind... Once Jorge (our piano player) put a TON of Ex-Lax (you know - the stuff that makes you have nearly violent diarrhea? Yeah.) in Berg's chocolate pudding one day at school. Berg was talking to two of the most gorgeous girls in school when everything started. Haha! Then there was the classic fart machine that Clint carried around with him almost every day. Then one night (when we had all crashed over at Jorge's house), Berg decided to get Jorge back for the Ex-Lax prank by shaving off his eyebrows while he slept! Man, Jorge looked so weird for a couple weeks.

TASK TWO

:here: Looking back, I realize how much I miss... getting into trouble with my bandmates! Man, we did some things back in High School that my parents couldnt even dream of doing! The best (and worst) thing we ever did in High School was take our Principal's hairpiece from his office and hoist it up the flagpole! Well needless to say the wind took it away, and our principal doesnt wear a hairpiece anymore. The picture below though is one time when Rory and I broke into the school after hours to jam on some instruments. It was a thrill - too bad Rory got away.
Caught! (http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n218/boolPropped/Contests/Simville%20High/caught.jpg)

Damn that Rory, I got detention for two months straight after that night.
Detention (http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n218/boolPropped/Contests/Simville%20High/detention.jpg)

TASK THREE

:here: If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be... the one night that I decided it would be cool to get piss-ass drunk with my buddies. Not that what we were doing was dangerous or anything - there was no way we were going to drive anywhere or anything - but it was the morning after that I regretted the decision. You see, Jorge thought it would be funny if I was the next victim of something being shaved.
No, Im NOT happy (http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n218/boolPropped/Contests/Simville%20High/hairday1.jpg)

Thankfully there isnt a dress code in our school against hats, so I could at least wear one all day. So Jorge had his fun, and I was embarrassed to death when I had to go to school that Monday. I put my hands over my head (partly because I didnt want anyone to see my bald head and partly because it was pouring) and ran into class for the longest day of my High School life.

Name: Miranda Moreno

Family heritage/origin: I'm a total mutt! My dad is Mexican and my mom is Filipino and Irish.

How long did you attend Simville? 9th grade - Senior Year.

Current age: 23

In high school, I was known as… I was the the weird, quirky girl who did her own thing. I shopped at thrift stores and didn't really care about what others thought. I was interested in Art and Design so I spent most of my free time doing that. I didn't have very many friends, but the ones I did have I cherished a lot. I was also a bit of a nerd you could say... grades were important to me!

In the last five years, I’ve… After high school, I move to the city and went to college to study Art. Then I went into the Fashion industry and have since become a costume designer for television shows and movies. A lot of people think it's glamorous, but it's actually a lot of work! I'm also getting ready to launch my own clothing line for young adults, so I'm pretty excited about that.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
Graduating! I was so happy to be done with high school. A lot of people say it was the best time of their life, but for me it was merely just a part of it. I enjoyed my school days but very thankful that it's over, lol.

Oh, by the way, fadedt0uch, will you be uploading Adriana? I know I'm bugging everybody about their sims, but I just had an idea that she would fit into, and I'd like most of my scrap book photos to be with other contestants :)

The rounds are coming out excellent! I have a question for you Nukeya. I was wondering if the text had to be directly on the pages, because I was thinking of including something under the pages of what was going on. I don't want to go into to much detail about it though...

beeps

I dont believe all the text has to be on the pictures themselves.

Please include something to “remind” us know what’s going on in your pictures. This might be a caption on your page, or something written separately.

BP's correct- the text does NOT need to be on the pages themselves. You may write it in separately.

Welcome Karina! Thanks for joining-I'll add you to the list. :)

Thanks Nukeya. It was fun and very interesting - Ive never done collages before. But yeah, this round took me literally hours to complete. In fact, I took the day off to work on school and ended up doing none of it :disagree:

Heh, bad me.

Oh NO BP! It didn't have to take you that long! For the pages, you don't have to have more than one page, you just need at least 2 pictures. If you choose to do more than one page, that's fine, or if you want to put one picture and have 2 pages, that's fine too. I was thinking of just having you pick between 2 of the three. Sorry BP to kill your day :(

Wow, great entries!

Okay, I'll then just use Ace in the story and as a photographer, I hope that's ok? I'll be sending out a ton of PM's in a minute to ask people if they think my ideas for their characters are ok, but I thought a general question might go here as well: Does anyone who uploaded their sims mind if I use them dancing on the dance floor in a prom pic, probably with funny moves and such (because sims dance funny, can't help it :))?

I'll try and get to work on my entry a bit today, but I'm not sure I have time, 'cause it's my birthday :D

Also, if you know what hair Ace has on, you can always just dress up any Sim and put that hair on him and have him be turned so you can just see his backside or something like that.

BTW-Happy Birthday!

Just wanted to let you guys know that I posted Eve in the official sim sharing thread!

So much for that! The SECOND I posted her up, (thinking I was following the rules) one of the mods removed the post and sent me some sort of warning about violating site rules. (Hello???) So sorry to you all, but I am NOT going to repost her, as the last thing I need is to have my account locked out WHILE I AM MYSELF TRYING TO RUN A CONTEST. (Ya'd think the mods might be cool with someone whose been a member here longer than them, and whose never made a violation!)

I had a cold of horrific proportions yesterday so I didn't use the PC much and thus did not get a chance to upload Scott. I shall endeavour to do so today, as well as start working on my Round One. Gulp...using Photoshop never was my strong point...
Everybody's Round Ones look fantastic, by the way! :D It's exciting to see new people joining all the time. Hooray!

Amalina...don't fret over the Photoshopping aspect. The point of these rounds is not to see how well you can Photoshop...it's for you to express your character and judging will be primarily that. I don't want anyone to feel as though they have to be a photoshop wiz or they won't be able to do well here. I have been through that and don't want those in my contests to feel that way. Just have fun and I'm sure you'll do fine!

The rules on this site apply to everyone who registers - no matter how long they have been involved in the community. Your post didnt include direct (clickable) links to the custom content included- clearly stated in the first post of that thread - so the attachment file was removed. Im definitely not trying to single you out, Im just trying to explain why it was removed. Heck, I just removed another attachment two seconds ago for this same reason. In addition, the alert is only one point and would never lock/ban your account for something so small.


Back on topic: Nukeya, can we edit our stories/text up until the deadline?

I hope I did this format correctly. I never did it this way before. *crosses fingers*

**********************

It was April Fool’s Day, the day of pranks. Having book club that day, I met my friends Brea and Tom over at our usual spot. Being tired from a busy day, I let myself fall onto the couch seat. Jumping back up in surprise I realized I sat on an electrocuting buzzer. But don’t worry; I too had a trick up my sleeve. What my friends didn’t realize, is that when I left to get the sodas, I added a bit of mustard to their cans *evil grin*.

Pranks gone right! (http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Highschool-Round-1a.jpg)

It was senior year, and my friends and I wanted to do something memorable. What better to remember than to dance in the cafeteria?! (Yes, this story again…) On the count of three we jumped on the cafeteria tables and began to shake our groove thang! As I was getting into my dancing, I didn’t realize that Brea and Tom were no longer dancing with me. To my surprise, and dismay, I realized that my history teacher saw us and was standing right next to the table. We got detention for a week!

Pranks gone wrong! (http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Highschool-Round-1b.jpg)

I’m not the only one that’s eccentric in my family. My mom is obsessed with anything Victorian, the houses, the furniture, the HAIR. That’s right, folks. For picture day, my mom made me wear my hair Victorian style. Gag me! It was horrible! I was embarrassed the whole day!

Bad Hair Day! (http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Highschool-Round-1c.jpg)

Here's my old lunch ticket from school:

Lunch Ticket (http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Highschool-Round-1d.jpg)

Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was...

Painting fingernails in the back of biology class; participating in art shows with my friends. Getting odd glances from students as my friends and I goofed off; getting smeared with paint in art class. Writing stories in my creative writing class, oh, and the dances!

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...

The atmosphere, I love to observe! I miss looking over and seeing the jocks arm wrestle while the cheerleaders discussed the latest gossip. Watching the drama kids act out a new scene as the geeks discover a new theory. Oh, and observing Huck O' Miller as he plots out his next prank! ;)

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...

That I showed I had a serious side. Why? Because then students and teachers wouldn’t have thought I was slacking or goofing off. People never seemed to really take me seriously…probably because I never acted seriously. Yeah…that’s what I would change…

My arrival to Simvill High in the middle of sophmore year was quite memorable. For some reason the braids I sported didn't woo the pants off the girls. Wonder why?

http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rory7s.jpg (http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rory7.jpg)

Officially the most embarrasing moment in my life. Yeah. An innocent prank - Ace and me sent Huck O'Miller a fake love note from Olivia slash Latrice Cooper and giggled like girls when he took it up with her. Huck has such temper (and quick brain!) that he apparently decided to get back at me. When I was chatting with Olivia, he ran buy and pulled my pants down! Now this'd been a here today, gone tomorrow sorta thing - 'cept for Keladry Mindelan who took a photo of it and printed it in the school paper!

http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rory8s.jpg (http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rory8.jpg)
WHY ME? The girls' gym teacher, the wench, found me and Jayla from the locker room and gave us a lecture on the dangers of teenage woohoo.

http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rory5s.jpg (http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rory5.jpg)

Needless to say, that time I was not. Cammy and Haley later sent me the photos, with love.

Too bad it turned out I looked like a pig with red hair. Eve and her friends laughed at me for weeks. It didn't stop me from asking her to prom though (and she said yes!)

http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rory11s.jpg (http://s85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/?action=view&current=rory11.jpg)

There's the famous picture of me spiking the punch. Here's how we did it: Eve, the bad girl, flirted with the caterer while I did the dirty deed! But the best part of the prom night was the slow-dancing, hands down.

http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rory.gif

My favorite part of my high school years was... the pranks me and Ace pulled, all the parties we had and the girls I fooled around with.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss... the freedom to do almost anything without real consequences! And pranking. While I still spike the punch every once in a while, the sophmore humor of pranks fits badly into 'adult life'. Wait, that'd be a problem if I had one.



If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... I would not have gone out with Kathy O'Grady. I admit she was a freshman and I was a senior but it was still a bit much of her father to file a police report on me! All for some minor snogging. Admittedly on his bed, but still.

Kaeru- rofl! Love it! I would have had to hurt someone had they done that to me. I was wondering if you had done a clothes recolor for that cause it looks like the stuff IS INDEED written on 'em.

Looking good everyone! I actually am wishing I could join in the fun and make some of my own-hope y'all are enjoying making them as much as I have had reading and seeing them. I'm impressed! Judges have their work cut out for them ;)

ThePolygotNerd has donated the following Sim to be given as a prize! May have some other things coming as well. A big thanks to Poly!

In High School I Was Known As: The "Girl With The Cool Accent", Ha, Everyone used to ask me to say stuff and i would have to repeat it with my accent, it was fun being the centre of attention at the beggning but after a while it got boring and luckily when the new exchange student arrived, they had someone else to torment. I tried to make as many friends as i could during my time at Simville, and joined as many things as possible.
I became a member of the Cheerleading squad and became Co-Captain.
I Really enjoyed my time at Simville and i am so excited that i get the chance to come back!
In The Last Five Years, I've..: Returned back to New Zealand, became Miss New Zealand 2006 and got to travel the world alot.When i wasnt travelling the world for Miss New Zealand I had a part time job working as a receptionist for a modelling magazine and i am hoping to get discovered as a regesteried model.
One day i would to start a family, but i need to find the right man to start one with.

My sophomore year my friend Tia decided that it would be funny to soap up our principal Mr. Hahn's car. Needless to say, he didn't agree and we got detention every day for a month. We still made it fun though.
OH NO! BIG TROUBLE! (http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f138/photo_me2004/simvilletroublepage.jpg)


My junior year I decided I needed a new look. I guess its never a good idea to let a stylist at a fancy shmancy salon have free reign! BLUE HAIR! OMG!
A HAIRY SITUATION (http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f138/photo_me2004/simvillehairpage.jpg)


Confessional

My favorite part of my high school years was: All the friends I made and all the pictures I took! lol! I had so many great friends that I had lots of fun with. I miss Tia and Max and everyone else a lot now that I live so far away from Simville.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss: Not having to get up every morning and go to work! Though I didn't realize it then, I had it easy. I didn't even have a job in high school!

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be, because...: I probably would have gone to more events as myself instead of as the photo girl with the yearbook. I took too many pictures that ended up in the yearbook and not in my scrapbooks!

the President of the Chess Club, Yearbook Advisor, and of course part of the Honor Society. I was sort of a geeky kid, but not so much in a bad way, seeing as that most kids in school thought I had a great personality and was fun to bed around.

Attended to a prestigious law school, but I have recently come out of my shell. As of now, I'm paying my way through college by performing as a male entertainer. I've also been working on my acting career.

Being chosen as Student Body President!

MzSera -Thanks for entering...Lee is very pretty! I like the idea of her being a foreign exchange student-way to be unique! Your pictures are a bit on the large side and you could have submitted pictures with just your Sim's face without the "scrapbooking" part (that was only a requirement for round one). You aren't being judged on your application though, so whatever you would like to use is fine as well. Perhaps you might want to upload them on a site such as photobucket or imageshack so you can include a smaller version on the page with a link to the full size or something of the sort.

photo_me2004 -love that you added in the detention slip!

bR0Oke_lynn- it's the HULK! Lol. Welcome!

boolPropped-moved to "In Progress"

LiPSTiCK - Ambrose is beautiful! Thanks for joining us! Could you please change your app from having been prom queen though? Eve has already taken that position, and sorry, but there can only be one.

**The next section is somewhat long-winded, but please read!!!**

***********************************

*Updates-Please read carefully and ask if you have any questions!!*

*Classlist has been updated with new applicants and links for those who have submitted Round Ones. I can't tell you how impressed I am with everyone's job thus far.

*Let me know if I've missed anyone for anything (adding you to the list, etc). We're up to a class of 25 so far! ALOT larger than I anticipated!

*Those of you who have recently entered, I will be making your avatars as soon as I can in the next couple of days and will PM you when yours is complete.

*Scores will be cumulative-meaning your score from each round will be added towards your final score for judging. You are being asked to complete tasks which show you from many different angles, so you will need to do your best at each level. This also allows for you to balance things out a bit if you aren't so good at one set of tasks, but do well in another.

*As far as cuts for the upcoming round(s), we have 15 gals and 10 guys. 1st round we will cut the number for each group to 12 and then by 1/4 after that, just to give you an idea of what to expect. I'm planning for there to be "final fours" for the last round. (There may not be any eliminations for the guys for round one if we don't have more apply.)

*Double entries WILL BOTH move on. For many contests, if you have entered more than one Sim, only one of your Sims can move on past app/round 1. Seeing as how you have double work to do in order to complete tasks for two entries, if neither of your Sims is eliminated each round, they will both move on up until the last round. (This is of course unless you choose to drop one of them out.) At round 3 judging, if both of your Sims have made it, whichever contestant has the higher cumulative score may move on to the "final four".

*I have had a far better turn out for this contest than I had originally planned and so I will be closing applications for female contestants at 20 so as not to overwhelm the judges (not that 20's not hard enough-especially with all of the wonderful entries so far ;)) The next five (if you're considering entering a female) will be first come first served. No posts to hold a spot! You must also have AT LEAST ONE picture in your post if you plan to join and need time to finish the other pictures!

*I have been working on the reunion t-shirts and am having fun with doing that. Hopefully, they will be something you all will enjoy. (I doubt you will really use them on a regular basis, but I want to give you all something unique to remember your "reunion" by :P) Judges, I'm making special ones for you as well as you have some tough work ahead! I'll try and hopefully get some pics up tomorrow when I am finished with some details.

*Big thanks to everyone so far for participating and making my first contest such a success!

Thanks for the updates! It's nice to know about the scores being cumulative and the eliminations before hand. :) I was wondering, does it matter if I do my scrapbook in chronological order rather than in party-trouble-hair -order? I was thinking I'd make the scrapbook like it was compiled of the three years Rory attended Simville High. (Hair-Party-Trouble-Trouble-Trouble-Party-Hair-Party)

General question: In USA, what do you when you graduate high school? There's the caps and gowns and probably a party for relatives, but is there a general tradition of a big party for the evening, for the students? or what do the students usually do in the evening? Go out with their friends?
Have seen the caps and gowns in so many a movie, but not a HS graduation night.

Nukeya
25th Jul 2007, 1:20 PM
Kaeru- You can do your scrapbook pages in whatever order you would like as long as it is clear what section it is for. The judges already have a tough load, so I don't want them to have to figure out what page is for what. All you need to do is put a caption below or above each page letting them know which task each page is for :)

In regards to your second question, in the US, it really depends. Most generally though, there is a graduation party where the graduate invites family and friends. Many times, the graduate will be there for a part of the time, but will attend the parties of his friends the remainder of the evening.

The rules on this site apply to everyone who registers - no matter how long they have been involved in the community. Your post didnt include direct (clickable) links to the custom content included- clearly stated in the first post of that thread - so the attachment file was removed. Im definitely not trying to single you out, Im just trying to explain why it was removed. Heck, I just removed another attachment two seconds ago for this same reason. In addition, the alert is only one point and would never lock/ban your account for something so small.

Well, you werent the mod that did it to me, and the PM sent sounded quite harsh. Didnt quite get it because have been member here for 2 1/2 years and have never, ever had a problem with anyone or anything with this site. (Heck I wouldnt have hung around so long if this was not a cool place.)

So the problem with the post was no clickable links to the content...? So if I were to go and find links to everything and post the links, could I re-upload Eve without fear of getting spanked again? Like I said, I DO NOT want to risk having my account locked with my own contest ongoing. I also know a few people have PMed me asking for Eve, and I do not want to disappoint the others in this contest either!!!

And to those of you who've PMed me to ask if you could use Eve, yes you are more than welcome to use her, and I am trying my best to find a way to get to all of you who want her! :D

MissTech- I know I'm not BP or a mod so hope I don't get in trouble for trying to do their jobs but to offer advice from having uploaded Kristofer and another Sim on that thread: You have to have links to any custom content that you are including with your Sim. You have to also be sure that permission is granted by the creator to include in uploads as well. If you aren't sure if you are okay to include something in an upload, you can also give links pointing to whatever item it is you have used and just include a Maxis version (if hair or clothes) or nothing at all (makeup, etc.) and provide links to where the downloader can get those things for themselves. As long as you give links to anything you are including on your Sim that you didn't make, I think you should be fine. :)

The Good: It's Time To Party

Gym wasn't exactly my favorite subject in school - but it did get me grounded. I guess I should have made sure my mom was asleep before I snuck back into the house

Looking back at some of the outfits I've worn, hair styles I've had, and makeup I've put on I wonder what I was thinking....

Confessional:
My favorite part of my high school years was...
Spending time with my friends and cheering at all the football games.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
Seeing everybody everyday and walking through the halls of Simville High like I owned the place.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...
Nothing at all. I loved everything about my high school years and wouldn't change a thing!

Oh my goodness...I can't believe I found this!


'It`s Time To Party' -
Man, oh man. That day was .... WILD! I had a small party at my house, and of course, within the first few minutes, we all headed to my bubble machine. After a few min-- ... hours on the bubbles, I made us a few VIRGIN drinks. But, my friend Sam didn't know that I switched hers with love potion! She drank it down, and within 10 minutes, her and Huck O' Miller were in the hot tub together. Look at the pictures we took! I don't even think either of them remember that day.

'I Smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E' (http://s74.photobucket.com/albums/i251/luckyoleme/Contest%20Entries/?action=view&current=trouble.jpg)

Wow. That was horrible. My mom made me cook dinner for HER guests, so I decided it'd be a funny little prank to over-stuff the turkey, so that when they all ate it, vegetables would spurt everywhere! Unfortunately...it backfired on me when it IMMEDIATELY made the kitchen catch aflame. My mom was SO pissed. I was grounded for 4 straight weeks!

'Hairs the Deal'
I was so mad when I woke up!

My favorite part of my high school years was...
All the partying, the drama, meeting new people; some of whom I'm still friends with today. The entire high school experience for me was a giant colorfully lighten blur.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
my Trig teacher, Mr. Kraine. He was hot! Whoo....if I could find that man today...


If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ...
the way I tore down and belittled so many people, and the way I started spread gossip about everyone. I really wish I could go back and focus more on my own business instead of everyone else's.

MissTech... Nukeya is correct in her explanation. All you missed was the clickable links to all the custom content included in your Sim upload, making sure that the creators of that custom content are ok with you redistributing it in your Sim package (just visit their site and read their "Terms of Use"). And read through the first post in the Sim Sharing Thread and all the rules are written very clearly for everyone. If those are followed, you shouldnt get an alert/warning ;)

NaNaGirl, I understood I could use Jayla, but I hope it's ok. Please tell if you want me to change something. I was thinking she and Rory were friends with a spark and fooled together at some point(s).

And if anyone's interested, I took a shot of how your girls look in my game (http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k55/Kaeru_2006/rorygirls.jpg). Sims always look so different in different games, so I thought you might be curious :).

Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was that life was still easy. Of course, we often thought that we had big problems, but looking back ... I realize that this really was the best time of my life! I had nothing to care about, loads of fun with my friends and on the top of it, I learned something for my future life (you know, I was a nerd!).

Looking back, I realize how much I miss the breaks between the lessons. There was always something going on, an interesting argument, two girls sharing the newest gossip, someone pulling a prank ... I always enjoyed those breaks, at college those were really short and boring. And now I have to work, so no more scheduled breaks for me.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be being a little less "nerdy" because this way I would have had the chance to be a part of the "cool kids" gang (you know, the achiever and those cheerleaders etc). Actually I was quite happy with myself being like I was, but sometimes there were those dark hours where I ennvied the cool, admired ones and wanted to be one of them ...

Task 1

Oh, looking at these pictures brings back memories ... That pool party was really great, unfortunately I have forgotten at whose house this was. However, you can probably already guess it, on the picture I had just climbed out of the pool when someone pushed me back in *lol* I didn't mind though, it was a hot day!

Oh yeah, and Joe's Bar ... Huck had lost a bet so I made him sing that Dirty Dancing song Karaoke together with me (he didn't know it was that song until he had the mic ... Actually it was fun! :lol:

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/Simsville%20High/PartyTime.jpg

Task 2

Uh oh ... I will never ever forget the day when I hit our English teacher Mrs. Miller with a waterbomb ... It was horrible! She was really mad at me, and she gave me 3 weeks of detention.
I was actually aiming for Scott but ... well, I am not very good at aiming, so I hit her instead.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/Simsville%20High/SophiaTrouble.jpg

Task 3

Yeah, the short hair :lol: I had already forgotten that ... I used to have dreadlocks for a while, but one day Mum decided that I had to get normal hair again (that was for Granny's 70th birthday). So I had to cut them off :( It took ages to let the hair grow back to normal length!

The Final Fantasy hair-do was one of my favorites, but the blond got greenish very soon so I returned to red.

Ha, and that pink one is actually the newest of those three, that must have been in senior year. Then I had my pink phase ... That lastet for a few months only though.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/Simsville%20High/Hairy2.jpg

Optional Task

You know, I am really chaotic, but my lunch ticket looks as good as new because I always made sure that it was securely stored in my pocket. No lunch without the ticket and lunch is the most important part of the day!

Task 1-Party Time

http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n39/Kakashi_Hatake15/contests/Drayce-scrapbook1.jpg

Drayce-Poor innocent Matthias, he and Jacob came over to my place one weekend for a sleepover. They were the only two I considered friends in High-school, we were always together. Sort of three-muskateer like, anyway Jacob and I decided to shave poor Matty's head. Needless to say he nearly had a heart attack, but being like he is, he took it in stride. He just said "It'll grow out again" and giggled. That's just how Matty is, nothing really bothers him. Plus he knows he's hot no matter what he looks like.

Task 2-TROUBLE

http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n39/Kakashi_Hatake15/contests/DrayceDetentionSlips.jpg

Drayce-One of the best days that I had in school. Matty, Jacob and I decided that We'd add a little artwork to the bathroom walls, we stole some paints and a brush from one of the art rooms and I basically went wild. until a teacher walked in, the three of us got busted. We had to clean it up and we got 1 weeks detention besides.

Task 3-Bad Hair Day
http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n39/Kakashi_Hatake15/contests/Scrapbook3.jpg

Drayce-This had to be one of the WORST days ever, I tried to dye my hair red and it turned PINK! Bright PINK!!! I was mortified, I felt like putting a paper-bag over my head. It was horrible!

Optional-The Yummy
http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n39/Kakashi_Hatake15/contests/Drayce-Foodcard.jpg

Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was...Meeting Jacob and Matty, I love hanging out with them and I still do, they come over on a daily basis.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...The pranks, misbehaving, the carefree world of a teenager.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ...My drinking and not paying attention because...I feel I missed out on alot and more people probably would have hung out with me. i shoved alot of people away and now they've graduated and moved on.

((Let me know if everything is okay, I worked really hard on this :) ))

I've been working on my Round One, but unfortunately I've also been feeling a little sick. It's nothing too serious, just a headache and a cold, but I've made some good-ish progress. I will try to have the first part posted, and I'll add to it later. I'm having lots of fun in this contest so I will persevere! :D
I've been following everybodys entries and they're all great - I'm interested in seeing the diversity. I guess there's nobody quite like Scott though, so I'll maybe find it hard fitting in a few of the cooler and more popular kids into his entries (except in passing, maybe). Ah well. Good luck everyone!

My favorite part of my high school years was...playing on the tennis team all four high school years. I played No. 1 my junior and senior years, and both years I won the state singles title. I expect I’ll be playing tennis for fun and exercise for the rest of my life.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...having no heavy responsibilities. Teenagers have no concept of how much they’ll be giving up when they become adults. How easy and how much fun their school lives are in comparison to what’s ahead. Many teens find the years difficult while they’re living them, but oh my….

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be...my lack of understanding and lack of tolerance of my classmates…because...had I been just a bit more mature and aware, I would have had twice as many good friends then. I’ll be trying to make up for that from now on.

Name: Nikole Murcley

Family heritage: North American

How long did you attend Simville?: I attended Simville threw kindergarten all the way to Senior. But thats no exception since I missed school a lot; about 2 times a week!

In highschool, I was known as... the medical girl. With all my surgeries and hospital opointments for my Leukemia I didn't blame them. People stayed away from me as if I was contageous, especially when I started loosing my blonde hair. I just wish people would remember who I was before I was positive with Leukemia.

In the last five years, I've... become an assistant for Cheo, helping the kids like me who suffer from varies types of cancer. My hair has grown back, finally, and I'm healing nicely as the doctors say. Too bad boys, you should of noticed this chick before you judged her!

The most memorable thing that happened to me in highschool was... when Eve Oliver (prisky popular girl) pulled off my wig during lunch time at the cafeteria. She claims it was all an accident, but I know better.

I don't miss the first day I walked into the schoolyard, when my hair was at the process of falling out. I litterly begged my parents for me to not go to school, but parents were parents and I was obliged. I wore a hat, and everyone laughed at my 'hair cut'.

Then there was Alex Gipson, a handsome football player. He lets her hair grow long, but it’s mostly for Olivia his girlfriend. Then his mom made him get a haircut! Check out those before and after photos! Haha.

http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n280/Vio1ette/badmemoriesphotoshoot.jpg

Gees, those bad memories still haunt my mind today. Like the day I went to school, and my head was completely bald! Now that was nerve racking.

Then the time I was so drunk after a party I streaked in my underwear, singing and dancing. I made a total fool out of my self...and I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one who would remember that day!

That school dance was fun! I remember dancing and being eyed, especially since not all my hair had fallen off at that time, and it actually looked kind of cute on me. Then Olivia, one of Eve's best friends, spilt a whole class of red wine of my dress! I can't believe how nasty she can be!

Round One - Scott FitzBarnaby

Task One: The Good: “It’s Time to PARTY!”
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/RoundPartOne.jpg
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/RoundPartOne2.jpg
It was the end of a long term of planning and organisation, culminating in that memorable performance of Macbeth in front of an excited audience at least 500 strong. I had fallen off the stage, obviously, but I wasn’t embarrassed in the least.
At the aftermath party for the most select cast and crew members (plus my mother) we were all munching cookies and ice creams delightedly when the student-director Howard Morgrimm-Toad burst in with a cry of, “Oh well done, lovies! I’m so awfully proud of you!” before attempting to kiss our cheeks melodramatically. I could tell immediately why – he wanted a kiss from my then-girlfriend Sally. As he sauntered over to her with his wrist limper than a wet rag, I thought, “Right, I’m not watching any of this!” and quickly formed an idea in my head. He tried to hug her and when she refused he swore loudly at her and flicked his pink hair in annoyance. She began crying so I comforted her for a few moments whilst Morgrimm-Toad fussed with the other girls.
When he saunted back over to us, I dodged out of the way like Errol Flynn, my hair swaying, and moved further down the line before he could notice. Then I whipped out my favourite lighter from my collection (a fine red thing, I remember, with Daisy Duck painted on the side) and held it up underneath the sprinkler alarm. When Morgrimm-Toad walked underneath the sprinkler (I’d timed it just so) it began beeping violently and a whole spout of water cascaded out, covering him rather neatly and ruining his elaborate make-up. How we laughed (though now I guess it was kind of irresponsible – not to mention dangerous!) And Sally ran over to me and nearly hugged the breath out of me.

Task Two: The Bad: “I Smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E”
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/RoundOnePartTwo.jpg
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/RoundOnePartTwo2-1.jpg
For a joke, I’d stashed away my sister Minnie’s favourite make-up set and boy, was she mad. She knew I’d done it, and she claimed that she felt “naked without it”. I refused to show her where I’d hidden it (maybe I’d kind of forgotten, ahem) so she and her boyfriend Lance set to work jogging my memory.
Lance is a big kid – star of the junior boxing team. He’s half a head smaller than me, but with good reflexes and powerful arms. He entered me in the boxing competition – even though it was for juniors, the coach said it would be okay if I entered because of my “weedy” stature. It got around school quickly and became a matter of pride – if I didn’t fight, I’d be ridiculed and treated like a big sissy.
As the day drew near I grew increasingly less confident until just the thought made my knees knock. Even as I sat in the Junior changing rooms I was thinking, “This is ridiculous! Stop it now, you don’t have to do this!” But it was too late for turning back. I stood my ground as I watched Lance leap into the ring, wondering vaguely at the back of my mind why on earth I’d hidden Minnie’s make-up set, when the bell clanged. Ding-Ding!
It was over in five seconds. Lance took a swing at me and knocked me hard on the eye. Before I even had time to retaliate he raised his leg and dealt a savage kick. I collapsed before he could even aim a third blow at my face. “Oh great, my good looks will be marred for all time,” I thought half-jokingly as the bell went again and I picked myself up. My mother wasn’t pleased when I came home that day, a black eye beginning to bloom and a small welt glowing beneath my eye. Nor was I, as a matter of fact. (At least Lance got disqualified for kicking me – against the rules, apparently).

Task Three: The Ugly: "Hair's" The Deal
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/RoundOnePartThree.jpg
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/RoundOnePartThree2.jpg
You all know how it is when you reach a certain age, right? Your body…well, it becomes a machine packed with more hormones than you can shake a stick at. In girls – well, let’s not go there. In boys – hair. And lots of it! Growing facial hair is one of the biggest steps a teenage boy takes; and believe you me, once one kid starts growing a beard, you’re up every morning peering into the mirror and praying for a smattering of stubble. Mine didn’t seem to be coming at all, and I thought it was typical that I spotted the first delicate hairs in the first week of Summer Vacation.
But I decided to take advantage of the long summer weeks and just let things grow naturally. Naturally my mother noticed, as did Minnie, but neither said anything because dad was at a medical convention in Seattle and they felt it best that he told me. It looked ridiculous, I know that now. Within a month I looked like a creepy old caretaker. Another month and I resembled a tramp. But I thought I was cooler than an ice-cream sundae. Over that summer I’d been asked to grow my hair for a role in the Lord of the Rings that our school was planning on doing, so it inched towards my shoulders in a tangle.
When I returned to school, it was to giggles and sometimes outright laughter. I felt very embarrassed for the first day, so as soon as I got home I shaved my beard off and even straightened my hair with Minnie’s straightners. I looked a sight (even without the beard) but I was determined on getting the role in Lord of the Rings and I kept my hair straight for a while longer.


Optional Task: The Yummy?
http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/LunchTicket.jpg
Yup, this is my lunch ticket. Pretty dull, huh? I wanted to add some cool badges or something but I couldn't figure out how to get them to stick into the plastic. My mother made me lunch most of the time anyway - little triangular sandwiches and such. The other kids laughed at me but they laughed at me anyway. Besides, the American school food was a bit of a shock to my stomach and the sugar hurt my teeth. Urgh, the picture's also part of the reason I didn't use the card much - it's simply hideous, isn't it? I'm part blinking so I look darn-right stupid. :yech:

Confessional

My favourite part of my high school years was...
Spending time mooching about in the library. The librarians were all really nice folks, and if you ever needed any help doing your school work they’d do whatever they could. Yes, I spent many an hour there (usually quite happy) rifling through books and old newspapers to find information on my favourite things – insects, bizarre mating rituals, Britain, American History, famous eccentrics – though I never became a student librarian myself. I was mocked and ridiculed enough as it was, and I didn’t really feel like giving people new little details to pick out on and jeer at. Being in the library felt safe and it was there I first read about lawyers and attorneys and decided I would like to be one too.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
The innocence of it all, I guess. I realise more and more that now I’m striking out on my own, everything and everybody screams at me to try to be as independent as possible. All of the things about High School – homework, lessons, teachers, little friendship groups – took place in a controlled and protected environment where we all knew we were 100% safe. At university they treat us as adults; at school they treated us like the big kids we were and I had a blast. We were expected to be a little wild sometimes, but now we’re not really supposed to be. In fact, I applaud Rory for spiking the punch – it makes me realise that we may have grown up physically but mentally some of us have retained the attitudes and sense of humour we always had.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be...
The number of times I got in trouble
Because...
I tried to be good but I got a detention pretty much every week! My dad was away on business a lot and most of the time my mum had her hands full with Minnie and I. I got into trouble for really trivial things – you know the sort, running in the halls, falling asleep in assembly, not handing in biology homework on time because I think English is more important…that sort of thing. It upset my mother a lot when I had to give her letters from the teachers full of complaints about my attitude or my struggle to keep up with work. Besides, the cooler kids who got in trouble far more often than me still didn’t look at me twice so there was nothing rewarding about it. It must have looked quite bad on my High School Record though.

Eve Oliver ~ Round 1
Task One: The Good: “It’s Time to PARTY!”

Well, the biggest and best party of the year had to be our Senior Prom. It was so exciting to see everyone dressed up and looking so glamorous! (Even the kids who NEVER dressed nicely.) I was shocked when I was named Prom Queen and not at all shocked when Rory was named Prom King. Thank goodness we had gone together as it made for some really beautiful pictures. One of the nicest things was when the Student Council, led by Breanna, unveiled huge portraits of Rory and I as a momento of being Simville High Prom Royalty. (A REALLY big deal tradition-wise in our school!)
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y19/MissTech05/prom.jpg

Of course the night had its ups and downs too. Dana, my best friend, got Mono and had to stay home. I was so sad for her since she was named to Prom Court along with Olivia, Lee and Adrianna! We managed to sneak some champagne in and were having a great time- against Olivia's objections- until Lee got a litte tipsy and knocked me down while we were all dancing, and Breanna seemed interested in the buffet more than hanging out. But later in the eveing everyone calmed down, sobered up, got social and had a great time!
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y19/MissTech05/prom1.jpg


Task Two: The Bad: “I Smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E”
Our school had more than its fair share of pranksters and trouble-makers let me tell you. At the beginning of the year, some of the gang (like Rory, Ace, and unbeknownst to me, Olivia) declared a 'prank war' on the entire Senior Class. Their hope was to catch each and every Senior with a prank at the worst possible moment for them. For me, it was right before the big pep rally for Homecoming. That stinker, Rory, snuck into the cheerleader's locker room (with Olivia's help no less!) and set off the fire sprinkler as we were getting ready! I was so angry because I had been nominated for Homecoming Queen, and had to go out for the ceremony dripping wet. (No wonder I didn't win and only got in the Court!) Well, that was fine with me because right before the Homecoming Dance, I got my revenge!!
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y19/MissTech05/cheer.jpg


Task Three: The Ugly: "Hair's" The Deal
Well, my hair didnt go through TOO many freaky changes throughout the years as I had a reputation for style to uphold! LOL! However, though I was not experimental when it came to styles and cuts, I was experimental with color!
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y19/MissTech05/yb2.jpg


Optional Task: The 'Yummy'
Well being Senior Class President certainly had its advantages, like being able to design my own all-purpose Student ID-Lunch Card-Unconditional Hall Pass card for my Senior Year. Of course, I did it in my style and its number if, of course #001! (I just loved it every time I was out in the halls and one of the teachers asked to see my pass! Never got a tardy slip or a cut slip! Ah the power of the Presidency!!!) Of course I held onto to this one-of-a-kind card!

Confessional

My favourite part of my high school years was...
I would have to say that my favorite part without a doubt would have been being a member of the Varsity Cheerleaders, and of course, being their Captain my Senior year. All the football & basketball games we went to, the parades and pep rallies, they were all so much fun. The best part was when we won the State Cheerleading Championship. We worked so hard to earn it, and it was the greatest feeling when we did. I learned to really trust, respect and like the other girls on the squad so much because we spent so much time together.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
The sheer fun high school was. Of course parts of it were really hard work- like prepping for the State Cheerleading Championships, and SATs- but most of us had no real responsibilities. We spent our evenings and weekends on dates, at partys, or hanging around the mall. Life was so much more simple and fun back then, and that is probably what I miss the most.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be...
I think I would have tried to mingle more with some of the other kids in school, like the drama kids or the newspaper staff. It wasnt that I was mean to those kids, its just that I didnt think we had much in common. It wasnt until getting out in the 'real world' that I learned that all kinds of people can be interesting and fun, and that you might have more in common with someone you'd least of expected to than you might have thought. I've learned that everyone is worth knowing, and I just wish had had known that back then.

Confessional:
My favorite part of my high school years was....
being involved with so many sports and activities. The heroism of making the game winning shot or hitting a home run. In life everyone wants to belong high school I felt I fit in many places.

Looking back I realize how much I miss...
the mostly carefree life of a teenager. I don't get to play sports much so that I really miss. Living life for today. When missing a homework assignment was your biggest worry in life. The parties, the friends, and all the freaking fun of it all.

If I could change one thing about my high school life it would be... because....
Not much, I can't really think of anything. All the mistakes I've made and all the experiences I went through made me into the person I am today either stronger or better. So, there's isn't anything I believe I would change.

My favorite part of my high school years was art class--it was the one place I could be myself without being harassed.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss my club, the Pretty Boys. There were more members than I remember, but most of them preferred to stay in the closet at the time, so we never publicly announced our meetings. :)

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be changing my hair because I look best with long white hair, even though I'm stunning no matter what color my hair is.

My favorite part of my high school years was... my senior year. This is when I really came out of my shell. I was always so nervous about getting good grades and joining every club so it would "look good" for college, but then finally in my senior year I realized that life's not all about work.. you need to have fun too!

Looking back, I realize how much I miss... all of the friends I've made. I never realized how much time I'd spend with my friends each day, until high school was over and we all entered "the real world."

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... I would be a LOT less serious. Because for almost my entire high school life I was always the geek or the nerd. I wish I wouldn't have waited until my senior year to relaxed a little.

“Congratulations to all who have moved on to the second round. I hope you all have enjoyed taking the time to share and reminisce. To those of you who have been sent home, I thank you for taking the time out to come back and spend some time with all of us once again. I have really enjoyed getting to know all of you and hear how life has treated you. Hopefully, when next we see each other again, it won’t be another five years down the road. To those remaining here, it’s time to step things up a bit and get the modeling portion underway! In looking for models, we are not only looking for a pretty face or a handsome smile. We are looking for models who have a sense of creativity, imagination and a willingness to help in creating fun, unique sets. So…on to the tasks…Good luck everyone!”


*********************************************************

For this round, you will be asked to create two ads, but not for sexy lingerie just yet. All models work to help sell or showcase items and have to start somewhere, right? Your ads are to be for candy or other “sweets” (cupcakes and Twinkies count). You’ve all heard the line, “Life is Like a Box of Chocolates” from Forrest Gump. Well, this round it will be. Not only will you be creating ads, but within those ads, you will be sharing a bit about your life as well. Up until now, we have brought back memories as we were in high school. Five years have passed since then and many of us have had a lot happen to change us in many ways. Now, how about sharing what happened AFTER high school? Welcome to Round 2!


Task One: The Candy Man Can.. “Unusual or Odd Jobs”

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d85/BritskyB/SCR/candyad.jpg
(stuffing pillows in the pillow factory)

Show an unusual or odd job that you have had in the last five years which you are to incorporate into an ad for a candy or some type of confection/sweet.

Guidelines:

**You are required to have ONE FULL BODY and ONE 3/4 or HEADSHOT for this round. It can either be this ad or the next.
**Picture must be full color.
**You MUST use that particular “sweet” somehow in your ad.
**Additional text is allowed but not required (Remember, however, apart from telling us more of your life…this IS an AD, so be creative and showcase the product as well as yourself!)
**Be creative in your use of the product. You can just include the item on the page, but you will be judged on your creativity. You can USE the product in your ad with a very small amount of photoshopping (No one can claim to not be able to after seeing your impressive work 1st round! :P) Round items can become clocks, tires, squares items can be houses, etc. Be CREATIVE!
**Your Sim should be adult or young adult.
**No other people or animals may be in your ad.
**Remember, this picture is part showing something of your life and part an ad. It’s up to YOU to figure out how to work them together.
**Give us a brief idea of your job. (One sentence is fine)


Task Two: I Melt… “Special to Me”

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d85/BritskyB/SCR/candyad2.jpg
(Willow and I's engagement)

Show a special time in your life that has brought change for you. It might be getting engaged, having a child, or winning the lottery (if you are really in love with money, fortune and fame).

Guidelines:

**You are required to have ONE FULL BODY and ONE 3/4 or HEADSHOT for this round. It can either be this ad or the previous, but have one of each.
**Your picture can be color, black and white, whatever you wish.
**You MUST use that particular “sweet” somehow in your ad.
**Additional text is allowed but not required (Remember, however, apart from telling us more of your life…this IS an AD, so be creative and showcase the product as well as yourself!)
**Be creative in your use of the product. You can just include the item on the page, but you will be judged on your creativity. You can USE the product in your ad with a very small amount of photoshopping (No one can claim to not be able to after seeing your impressive work 1st round! :P) Round items can become clocks, tires, squares items can be houses, etc. Be CREATIVE!
**Your Sim should be adult or young adult.
**You may include other people and animals in your picture, but YOUR SIM should be the focus.
**Remember, this picture is part showing something of your life and part an ad. It’s up to YOU to figure out how to work them together.
**Give us a brief idea of the occassion. (One sentence is fine.)

Task Three: OPTIONAL “What’s On Your Calendar?”

Ok, so, the life of a model is hectic and often times, you are going to need to be scheduling things well in advance and making appointments. Seeing as how you seek the chance at becoming a model, we want to see how organized you are. So…what’s on YOUR desk calendar? Appointments? Phone numbers? Yesterdays spaghetti sauce? This mornings coffee? We wanna see!

**This task is totally OPTIONAL. You will not lose points for not having completed it, but you CAN GAIN points by completing it. Completing this task, you can add up to 3 easy points onto your score.

**There really are no specific guidelines for this task, other than to be creative, have fun with it, and be sure to abide by ALL forum guidelines.

Confessional:

**I am most surprised to see...at the reunion...because...

**I have really enjoyed...

**I hope to see... in the upcoming rounds.

My God, you're creative o.o

The ads don't have to be for the same sweet, right?

Nope, they don't. Actually, preferably not. Hope y'all have fun with the next round as well. :)

Ok so... Obviously stuffing pillows with cotton candy isnt a real job. So what youre saying is we have to take a real job (ie stuffing pillows) and incorporate a sweet treat into the real job in order to make an ad (ie stuffing pillows with cotton candy). Am I right or totally off :p

You're right....you take the real job and incorporate the treat into the ad somehow. I couldn't figure out how to explain it so made some quick ones of my own. You are 100% correct BP.

Sweet! I love the concept, and I already have a cute idea.

One more question: Are there eliminations this round or were they already posted and I just missed them? I just want to know if I should wait to start on Round 2 to see if Ace got through or not.

Well, there aren't cuts this round for the guys as we've not gotten enough guys to even the numbers. I figured I'd go ahead and post round 2 so you can all be thinking of ideas...but lucky for the guys, no cuts. There's an hour left to see about the gals though. See y'all in an hour!

*waiting patiently for judging pm* I'm really excited to concentrate on all the incredible entries.

Nukeya, your tasks are super-creative and original

Ok....judges have been PMed...I've tried to hold out for those who were planning to have them in, but have to draw the line at some point. Sorry to those who weren't able to get theirs in. I hope you will still keep tabs and cheer on your "classmates". There "might" be another cycle, not for sure yet. Good luck everyone!

Well...Guess what y'all....we've had enough drops that.....there will be no eliminations this round for either guys or gals...so..."sweet treats" for all! I will still post scores/comments for everyone to see though when I get them all in.

Too bad about the drop outs, but it's cool everyone gets to stay, too. Can't wait to see the scores and especially comments, love getting those.
Round 2 sounds great too. A question though: does it matter if the life-changing event is negative rather than positive? If it's still about love and a turning point? I udnerstand if that can't be the case, but I just had this great idea...

As long as it fits into the "something/someone I love" or "something/someone special to me" category it is fine whether good or bad.

So sorry to everyone who didnt get in! What a shame!! I can see how it happened though. My entry took 6 hours to create, and that doesnt count all the time it took me to d/l my classmates and their stuff using crappy dial-up! Well perhaps they will come back if there is another cycle of this contest.... which their definitely SHOULD be!!!! :bow:

Well, good luck to all my classmates in this round of judging and for the next round! (Sounds tough!!!)


MissTech, love your pictures of Eve & Rory
Thanks very much! I think they came out cute too. Unfortunately, at least in my game, they hated each other in the beginning, but now are best friends. They are also totally NOT attracted to each other in my game either. :(

Oh and to all whose Sims I've d/l-ed... (Kristopher, Rory, Olivia, Lee & Breanna) not to worry! I intend to keep them in my game and they all will have great lives I'm sure! Become a little attatched to them after all the time playing them all to make my pix! :)

Best of luck to everyone :beer:

Wow, it's great to hear that everybody can stay at least for this round (although it is of course sad that people had to drop out).
I am looking forward to the judges' comments :D As soon as I have them, I'll start to work on my entry for the next round, so I know where to improve.

Really, the judging will be a bit different for each round as the requirements for each change. The couple things that I am having the judges look for and that is factored in consistantly from round to round are things such as:

*Your "sets"- meaning, are your pictures full in that they look believably "real" and not too plain or have an over abundance of bare space (though still not cluttered)

*Are your expressions fitting for what's going on in the picture

*Overall creativity and attractiveness of your pictures- do they really catch your eye when you look at them

*Execution of the tasks-how well you followed the guidelines of the tasks

There's a few little things that will vary from round to round as they will all be a bit different, but those are the main things you will be judged on for each set of tasks. Hope that helps!

**BTW- I could still use a couple emergency judges just in case!**

Does the 'sweet' need to be an actual candy, or can it be a liquid as well?

Nukeya
30th Jul 2007, 5:24 PM
I would like to keep it to solids rather than liquids

Task 1:
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/000_r2Huck11.jpg

Ugh. This Valentine's Day, instead of looking for someone to share it with...I had to play matchmaker for other people. Seeing as none of my relationships up to this point have fared very successfully, you'd think my friends would've chosen someone else. But no, of course not. They 'bribed' me a bit with some cash, but it was still not a pleasant experience...most of my female friends did not think very highly of most of my male friends, and so it was very hard convincing the girls to go on just one date with any of them. It did enlighten me a bit about what girls look for in their ideal man, though-- I've tried being a bit more nice and such to my girlfriend, and it seems to be making our relationship much less stressful and much more...well, sex-ful. And that, of course, is always a wonderful thing.

Task 2:
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/000_r2Huck2.jpg

Cars...who doesn't love 'em? But my Beetle will always be the kind of car that isn't only in your thoughts, but in your heart. A few of my friends and I found her in a junkyard, completely busted up and smothered in decades-old dust. With a bit of help from everyone, we managed to fix her up-- and since my other friends don't *cough*havealicense*cough* I was allowed to keep the beaut...as long as I act as my friends' chauffeur on weekends. It's a good thing the only places they go to are the arcade and the comic book store, or else I'd be wasting a lot of money on gas...

My Calendar ;D (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/000_r2Huck3.png)

Confessional

I am most surprised to see Rory Carr at the reunion. Let's just face it, the guy was the king of the school the moment he walked through those double doors, and I've had thought that he would've been too busy with movies or helping with the construction of a brand-new gazillion-floor house to even bother wasting his time on a high school reunion.

I have really enjoyed seeing... how everyone has transformed over five years. It's interesting to see how some people have completely broken away from what stereotype our senior class gave them, and how some have completely embraced it...

I hope to see Sophia Davids in the upcoming rounds-- I still remember how fun it was when we were dating, and honestly the girl hasn't changed much...I guess I still may have the hots for her. :)

Task 1:
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/000_r2Haley1.jpg

Okay....anyone who knows me knows that I'm about as religious as...well, an atheist. It's not that I don't believe in God and all that, but it doesn't really feel as if he's done all that much for me. So, it is a complete and utter surprise to me when my local church calls me up and asks if I'd be willing to participate in one of their religious plays, as an angel. The first thing that pops into my head is 'Are you freaking kidding me?!' but after they state that there is, of course, a tidy sum of money involved, I agree to the role. It was definitely not my kind of thing, but it was fun in its own little way...it's made me consider looking for more roles as an actress.

Task 2:

[sorry for the blurriness...and she's supposed to be in a cocoon, if you were wondering xD]

I did this ad shortly after I realized I was bisexual...quite fitting, isn't it?

My fabulous calendar :)

I am most surprised to see Adriana Lombardi at the reunion. Well, not so much 'surprised' as 'resentful'. In high school, I loathed her...and to see her at the reunion looking beautiful and successful as ever is bringing back a few bitter feelings I've forgotten about for five years. But, she does seem nice enough now...I guess people can change, sometimes.

I have really enjoyed seeing... my brother, Huck. It's not that I don't see him often, especially because our houses are like, right next to each other...but being back here with him in this school has brought back so many memories. Even the ones that were bad then seem humorous now. I guess we both will always have a fondness for all the years spent in Simville High, no matter how much we detested it then.

I hope to see Nicole Murcley in the upcoming rounds...I barely remember her in high school, though I know she was at the hospital more often than at school. But now, to see her strong and independent after only five years has been inspirational.

Aww, that's great! :)
And so quick! I still have no cool idea ...
But thanks Nukeya for your explanations of the judging, that is indeed useful :D
