**Please read carefully and ask should you have questions**

"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 more 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 try some new things- one being hosting reunions for "The Class Act". Our first run was a success and it was great to see all of MY old classmates once again. This season, however, I welcome the Simville High: Class of 2002!

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!"

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

In other words…

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. This cycle will be a bit different than the last cycle, however, as I have eliminated the "beauty contest" portion. This cycle will feature more scrapbooking type projects as well as a few other hopefully fun tasks to test your creativity and originality. Judging this cycle, just as last cycle will vary depending on the task. PHOTOSHOPPING WILL BE REQUIRED! You WILL be needing to know basic photoshopping skills such as cutting and copying/pasting. No need to worry as you WILL NOT BE JUDGED BASED ON YOUR ABILITIES. The only portion of judging that may be affected will be overall quality and appearance. If you participated last cycle or watched, scoring will be very similar. A STRONG EMPHASIS is put on how well you portray and stick with the personality of your Sim (just as last cycle).

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

Looking Ahead…

Timeline:
Applications: 12th-22nd
(Apps will close with the closing of Round 1, so you have plenty of time to enter)
Round One: "I Wanna Talk About ME! (http://www.forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1019734&postcount=84)" 17th-22nd
Round Two: "Me And My Gang (http://www.forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1025595&postcount=241)" 23rd-29th more info (http://www.forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1026111&postcount=269)
Round Three: "These Are the Days (http://www.forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1030667&postcount=362)" 1st-8th
Round Four: Final Round: "If I Could Save Time In A Bottle (http://www.forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1036095&postcount=457)" 9th-15th

*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 10PM 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 at least 12 hours in advance if you will be needing an extension. I understand and will take emergencies into consideration, but please, if you are planning to enter or are entering, PLAN ON STICKING WITH THE GIVEN SCHEDULE. It's tough to host a contest and try to keep things in order if you have multiple contestants who don't notify you and just don't turn in an entry. I want everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves, but please be considerate of the others participating as well. I am willing to give out tasks ahead of time if you are planning to be gone a particular week if you let me know ahead of time that you have something planned. I am willing to work with you, I just ask that you be courteous and let me know.***

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

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. 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. 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 [B]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 many 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 ;) ) If you DO chose to enter two Sims, BOTH of them will be allowed to remain in the contest until they are either eliminated or until the end of the third round. At that point, whichever of your entries has a higher score will move on to the final round.

 Photo-shopping will be required. While it will be required, it won’t be anything too challenging. Mainly, you will be resizing and cutting/pasting to combine more than one picture or other decorations 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) Judges will also be looking for things such as pictures that look empty or how wonderfully you have created your "set" to make it look as though it's really happening.

 Give your Sims a definite personality!!! I can't stress this enough! 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!

Feel free to share your Sims with each other and use them in your stories and pictures! Again, the more creative you can be in creating your Sim's life, the more successful you will be!

 Have fun! Enjoy the contest! It is my goal with this contest, (my second shot 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. Feel free to send me even the most minute questions if you are unsure of something or can't think of any ideas for a particular task. I really DON'T bite, but I do want everyone to have fun. 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. Both the male and female sections will be judged separately by different judges so as to not overwhelm the judges. 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.

[B]**If interested in judging for this cycle of SCR, please send me a PM with which section you would like to judge (if it matters). Requests posted in the thread will not be granted. I will need at least two other judges for each section and will fill in if necessary. Please note that if you are requesting to judge, that means you are aware of the timeline and when you will need to be available to give scores and are planning to be able to follow through with your request. Just as for the contestants, I understand things happen and come up, but please if you are judging and are going to be unable to judge for whatever reason, have the courtesy to let me know in advance when possible so I can make other arrangements. It stinks to sit and wait for a judge's scores and then just never hear back from them. I just ask that you be courteous and let me know if something comes up.

Cassie- In order for you to participate (which I am fine doing) I would need you to have your 3rd Round and Final entry to me before you left. I can give you the rules and such when the time gets closer (and I have them fully layed out). If you are willing to do the crunch, then I'm fine with you joining us this cycle.

Gerbera- YaY! Great to see you returning again! Hopefully this cycle will be better than the last one. I've kinda made a few small changes, per the suggestions last time. I'm excited to see who you bring along this time around!

To all: please remember that when you apply or submit an entry, you must have AT LEAST ONE picture as per the rules or you risk your app/entry being deleted!

Great! I look forward to seeing both of your entries Cassie and Ema.

**I believe I forgot to mention that any type of Sim is acceptable. They need-not be only human.

**Keep in mind...the contests are placed in the Creativity section for a reason...the key word being CREATIVITY ;)

**You will more than likely want to share Sims or work together on upcoming rounds, so consider sharing your Sims on the sharing thread or packaging them up for exchange. (Remember, this is only a suggestion, not a requirement.)

I really enjoyed lurking last cycle :) expect an entry from me later today :)

for the apps, which version of our sim should we use? teen or adult?

Hopefully you'll have more fun joining us this cycle than you had lurking the last, FireAzor :)

Please include the following pictures for your Application:
1 Full-color head shot as a teen (think school pictures)
1 Full-color body shot as a teen (think senior pictures - you may use props to show your Sim's stereotype - ie: band nerd might have a bunch of instruments in the shot)
1 Full-color head shot as an adult

When you say school picture, do you mean like the photographer ?

Are they wearing a uniform at Simsville High ? or jeans would be fine ??

And what are senior pics ? From the prom ?? Or graduation ? Something else ?

What is Central Time in Greenwhich Time ?

Sorry, lots of question.

Not a problem, Lillu, I appreciate questions so that I know what I need to include for directions next time.

-School pictures would be like the ones that a photographer comes to the school and takes pictures of each of the members of a class. These tend to be more "professional" looking as opposed to a candid type picture.

-No, they need not be wearing a uniform. You can dress them in anything you like, just keep in mind, your outfit of choice should be something that would help to "stereotype" you as a specific type of person. If your Sim was prissy/preppy in high school, then she more than likely would be expected to have her hair all done up, makeup, etc. If she was the class tomboy, she may wear baggy jeans and a t-shirt. Be creative, but try to express a stereotype through all of your pictures.

-Senior pictures are similar to the class pictures, but they are a little more expressive of your personality and more to your choosing. In a class picture, you generally have a very plain background (which is used for each and every person) and the picture is generally shoulders and up. The senior pictures, you get to choose what you want to have in the picture. You can have various kinds of backgrounds, props, they can be indoor or outdoor, pose is of your choice....these are much more freestyle. Here's some examples:

-Are you meaning Greenwich, UK? It appears that you are about 6 hours ahead of me.

How long did you attend Simville?
I arrived at the second year of Junior High until the end of High School.

Current age:
Almost 24 *wink*

In high school, I was known as…
I was the artist that was liked by everyone but not cool enough to make it into the "In" crowd.

In the last five years, I’ve…
Gone to college, majored in Art and am opening my own art gallery

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
I got kissed by the football star when we were working on a project together! I later found out he had a crush on me but didn't want to risk his reputation in school by going steady with me. I got over it soon enough. (I also got accepted to the college that I wanted but that's another story!).

Tobias Turgeon

Family heritage/origin:
I'm a bit of a mutt, but I'm predominantly German/French Canadian

How long did you attend Simville?
I actually attended elementary and middle schools in my home town of Pleasantville, but I came to Simville High for high school because of their advanced track 3-year diploma program. As a result, I technically graduated just after my 17th birthday (a whole year early).

Current age:
22 years old

In high school, I was known as…
the President and founder of the Armchair Strategists Society; man, did I get a lot of flack for our club's acronym! If I wasn't being reminded that I was the Head of... well, you can figure out the acronym for our club (when we voted on the name, we didn't realize what it would look like), I was usually known for my involvement in the Quiz Bowl team (7th place at Nationals, whoo!), the Future Engineers of America Club, and my part-time job at the Renn Faire every Spring.

In the last five years, I’ve…
attended SimCity Institute of Technology and earned my B.A. in Robotics and Engineering. After graduation I landed a gig working for Comcept Intelligences LLC in their research and development department. During my off-time, I'm still passionately involved in Dungeons & Dragons and medieval recreation.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was...
going to Nationals for the Quiz Bowl championship and really having a blast with my teammates; it was the first time I had really been away from home and it was a great growing experience.

As an aside, I would like to point out that the Armchair Strategists Society was a real club at my husband's high school; his club also made the name official before realizing what the acronym would look like. I hope I have not offended anyone with this, and if so, I heartily apologize.

Nukeya
14th Sep 2007, 4:53 PM
 You may enter up to two Sims (though, since many 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 ) If you DO chose to enter two Sims, BOTH of them will be allowed to remain in the contest until they are either eliminated or until the end of the third round. At that point, whichever of your entries has a higher score will move on to the final round.

How long did you attend Simville?
I've been attending school in Simville since my preschool days!
Current age:
24 years old

In high school, I was known as…
"The Fish"; I was the captain of the school swim team for three years and led our team to the State Finals in swimming both my Junior and Senior years of high school. I also participated on the soccer team with my buddy Brock.

In the last five years, I’ve…
attended Sim State University on an athletics grant and quite accidently discovered a love of archaeology. In '06 I earned my Bachelor's in Archaeology and went to field school in Guatemala. I'm still at Sim State U. working towards my Masters in Mesoamerican Archaeology; I teach an Introduction to Archaeological Science at the undergraduate level and my students get a kick out of my "Indiana Jones" outfit the first day of classes.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was...
when the upperclassmen on the Boy's Swimming Team decided to "haze" the new freshmen members of the team; after our first official practice, the upperclassmen stole our wet team bathing suits and placed them in the school lunchroom freezer. When we came to practice the next day, they presented us with freezing cold bathing suits to practice in. That was totally embarassing!

In the last five years, I’ve… Honed my ability to speak with the 'other side'. I want to dedicate my life to helping spirits cross over. I've always felt that I had a special connection with the natural and spiritual world. I don't think people really understood that about me in high school.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…One night I had the most fascinating experience while I was picking berries in the forest. I saw the image of a man doing yoga... but he was suspended in mid air! I started to say something to him but he disappeared and I heard a flute playing :listens for flute:... ever so slightly in the background. :tear:

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…I tripped over my shoelaces and landed face first into my lunch in front of the WHOLE cafeteria. That was dreadful...*shivers* I can still smell the mystery meat that was stuck up my nose, I had to go to the nurse to have it removed.
Worst part of it was my boyfriend Rex saw it all, I was so embarassed...

Awesome Honda and Kakashi! Glad to see you made it! *cheers*

*I am very impressed with how different everyones "classmates" are. Great job really bringing forth their personalities in both your pictures AND the confessionals. Keep up the awesome entries!

*I have added everyone that I have apps for thus far to the roster. I will be posting Round 1 on Monday, unless some of you would like to get started a bit earlier (Honda and Kakashi, I'm sure you could use a bit extra time). Apps will run through to the end of round 1, so there's still plenty of time to enter.

*I would really like to keep the guy/gal ratios as close as possible, so I would LOVE to see a few more guys enter!

How long did you attend Simville?
I attended Simville since Junior High School.

Current Age
24 YRS

In High School I was known as…
The guy who sold everything out of his locker. What can I say, I was very enterprising. Besides, I needed a distraction when I grew tired of one-uping everyone with fat jokes.

In the last 5 years I’ve…
Amassed a small fortune trading stocks and bonds and am currently starting off in the field of investment banking. I also lost the weight and i'm currently Sim City's third eligible bachelor.

The most memorable thing that happened in High School was…
Almost getting expelled because of a tiny prank gone awry. I dont see why they got so upset over my selling a few copies of the principal's car keys. It was almost time for senior pranks. There was a demand, I supplied.

I'm not sure my husband will let me join this, but just in case:

Name: Lucifer Diablan
Family Heritage:25% succubus, 25% vampire, 50% Scots/Irish (Most likely anyway; Mom wasn't 100% certain who my father was.)
How long did I attend Simville: I transferred in my Senior year after getting kicked out of my old school for putting 3 members of the wrestling team in the hospital when they were bugging me. Something aboout someone pouring baby oil on the floor of the locker shower room, and they thought it might have been me.
Age:22
In high school I was known as: Captain of the Debate team.
In the last 5 years I have: graduated college summa cum laude and started a very successful private detective business specializing in the recovery of stolen items. (OOC his success is primarily due to the fact that if he isn't the one who stole them in the first place, he knows who did.)
The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was when my mother had called a gypsy matchmaker to buy some more love potion. Understand that ever since childhood I had been a loner, so I had no idea how to interact with other people.
Out of curiosity, I asked the gypsy if there was any possibility that I would meet someone I could get along with. She gazed into her crystal ball for a moment, then laughed and told me that I would meet someone even sooner than I expected. A few minutes later, a private jet that had been flying overhead exploded and a girl fell from it into our swimming pool. She was unharmed, although she was now an orphan. Ivy and I got along quite well, and ended up going to college together. We are engaged to be married.

Pictures: This is the only picture from when he was an actual teen, although I hadn't gotten to actually putting him in a dorm yet because I was trying to get Ivy Copur's relationship with Lucifer's mom up high enough to move her in so she could get some scholarships too.

Because I tend to obsess about it. The last time I entered a contest I let the housework go undone, got up in the middle of the night to work on my entries, that sort of thing. He was sympathetic and overjoyed at the same time when I got eliminated. I had accidentally convinced him that I had better things to do with my life than waste time on contests in a stupid game.

How long did you attend Simville?
I First attend as a junior in highschool! I had just moved from sweden

Current age:
21

In high school, I was known as…
'The Sweedy' because i looked like a little innocent Swedish Girl. The popular girls never liked me though.

In the last five years, I’ve…
I grew up. I became a model right after high school for my mother. She had always been one in Sweden and wanted me to be one to represent my country! Im not too expierenced in modelling yet but I will be someday!

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
This one popular girl for several years made fun of my clothes, my braces , my swedish things. At prom she blew it!
I did everything my mother wanted me to be and do. She wanted me to be a model and wear clothes that were different and represented Sweden.
Anyway, at prom I had gotten a Designer Swedish Dress that i saved 5 years on paying for. Everyone loved it , exept my enemy Stacy who was one of the most popular girls in school who had always Bullied/Made Fun of me etc.
She was jelous. She thought it was so funny to pour grape juice on my dress!
My Dress was Wrecked! I bursted out into tears in rage. She had wrecked my dress I had tooken so long to save up for! In my anger I took my cup with stainy grape juice in it and poured it down her dress. Her dress was wrecked but i was still in anger! I took my cup and smacked her right across the face with it. She fell to the ground. I then pulled as hard as i could on her dress to rip it! It ripped all right! Right Down the center revealing her bra and panties with stains on them. Luckily the school photographer took tons of pictures of her like that and posted them all around the school and in the yearbook!
Even though my dress was wrecked it had to be the most memorable moment, Seeing Stacys shocked face with a ripped and stained dress everywhere!

Fire- I was wonderin the same thing. There's no homecoming queen/king OR prom king/queen yet.

Must be a day for the net cause w've had issues with ours as well. Ended up having to call the net people cause it would run for about 3 mins and disconnect. Finally figured out that the new satellite we had put in last week for cable, since it was hooked into the phone lines, everytime it sent out a signal or called out...whatever you wanna call it, it would knock us off line. Anyhow...It's fixed now so I will TRY to get up the first round here as soon as I can for those who want to start early.

FireAzor -- Prom and homecoming are two different dances. Prom is really for seniors at the end of high school, and a pretty big deal in the states. Homecoming is in the beginning of the year, not really a big deal, and it usually has something to do with football, although not always.

I changed my last entry. MJ had a sex-change and is now a dude named Devon. :D

I didn't see your post about Brock being homecoming king before I posted, FireAzor. I can change my entry if you'd like.

Edited to Add: I went ahead and changed my entry, FireAzor; Brock suits the title better (and it definitely adds to his characterization). :)

For those of you early starters:

**********************************************************
“I wanna talk about me…”


How can you really have a reunion and get together with old classmates to talk about the "good ol' days" without pictures as proof? Some from parties, some from random acts of mischief, others just taken for fun. For this round, you will be creating CD inserts for an "I Wanna Talk About ME!" album. I'm sure you have seen the paper inserts in music CDs where the artist has several different pictures, the cover picture with the album title, the back of the case with song tracks, etc.

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.)


This round is almost TOTALLY of YOUR creation. Think of what type of music your classmate would listen to most likely, and create a "CD insert" based on them.

Task one:

*For the first picture, you will need to have the album title, "I Wanna Talk About Me" on it somewhere. Where is totally up to you- as well as the color, size, etc. (You may want to consider your font style, size, color, etc though and how it fits with your chosen music genre. Rockers probably wouldn't use big bubbly bright pink letters on their covers. Hmmm...or would they?)

*I would also like for you to identify the type of music your album would qualify as and have it on the front as well. Something such as "The Rock Collection" or something of the sort would work.

*The photo can be as simple or as exciting as you would like it. Feel free to photoshop away or make it as simple as you would like it and just have your classmate's face on it. It's fully your decision.

*Tell us why you chose the picture that you did for your album cover. What part of you and your personality is being displayed here?

Tasks 2-3:

*Create 2 free shot photos, to be included, that tell us something more about you- maybe things that no one ever knew about you.

*These should be either full body or 1/2-3/4 shots.

*You must tell us what you are trying to convey about your life.

*You must include the title of one of your "songs" (see the back cover task below) on each of them.

Task 4: Back Cover:

Create the back cover however you would like , but you must come up with a list of "song" titles that you think either describe you or would be something that your classmate would have enjoyed. You should come up with at least 7 song titles and include the list on the picture. Also tell us why you chose what you did.


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: Library Cards

**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.**

Dig out those old library cards! It's time to check em out! Create a library card for your Sim and hold it high for all to see~

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!

You can pose or they can just be casual...it's up to you. Whatever best expresses your classmate and their personality is what I'm looking for :) Good luck everyone and ask if you have questions.

Yes, Zaggy, I would like to see the album cover, 2 "action" shots, the back cover, and answers to the confessional (if you would like to add a picture with the confessional, that's quite alright but not required by any means) and then the library card is optional. You are correct-o.

In high school, I was known as: the creative one. I was totally into music and arts, performed with my own band, was a member of the drama club, sometimes wrote articles for the school paper. Some people also saw a rebel in me because I preferred dark clothes with prints, "Rock"-style.

In the last five years, I’ve: made my major in history with a minor in arts. I started to work in a museum where I can also do researches. Also, I have formeda great band together with my sister and a friend of ours. We don't have a recored deal, but sometimes we perform in smaller clubs and that's always fun!

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was: during prom night, one of those girls who I thought didn't even know I was alive confessed that she had secretly been in love with me for some time.

Yay! You made it Gerb! Great to see you! For the pictures, yes, they need to be of them as a teenager.

Thanks for joining Kipsnif and Stylequeen! Stylequeen....I LOVE the attitude you've expressed in your confessional questions! Great job!

As far as the song titles are concerned, it would be great if you made up your own (remember...creativity! ;)) but you can also use any song titles which already exist if it is fitting for describing your Sim as a teen. I don't know if you've heard the song "Hail to the Geek" (which is absolutely hilarious, being that I'm a DnD/DDO fan) but a "track" such as that might work wonderful for your album if your classmate was a geek/nerd in highschool, played Dungeons and Dragons or was a LARPer, but maybe not for someone who's preppy and a jock. For them, you might want something like "Macho Man", "I'm Too Sexy..." or something. I've left this round pretty open for you to decide what you want to do.

You can use whatever you like. If your classmate would have listened to Beethoven, you can put Beethoven's symphonies on there. The don't just have to be titles of songs that you use because they have a catchy title. Think of it as a collection of songs....like one your Sim might have made as their favorite songs that they've burned all together onto an album. They don't necessarily have to be performing them in any way shape or form. We're just using songs to describe your Sim, rather than just the traditional question and answer kind of thing, if that makes sense.

TLAWBLIQUE- you can enter both, I just must have missed your second one in putting the list together. I apologize and will fix it now. Sorry!

Name: Natasha Maestrovsky

Family heritage/origin:
Russian (I'm the first generation American!)

How long did you attend Simville?
I moved to Simville in the middle of sophomore year.

Current age:
23

In high school, I was known as…
That quiet girl who was nice to everyone. You know the one, I was aloof and a bit awkward, but I was friendly to anyone who approached me. No one made up rumors about me, but no one ever really got to know me, either. I was always in the background.

In the last five years, I’ve…
Been going to the prestigious SimCity Art School, majoring in classical ballet, of course. I’m also studying (when I’m not dancing) to be a nutritionist. Too many girls in dance suffer from eating disorders, and I hope to make a difference with that.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
When I was actually invited to a party! Oh, I was the happiest girl in the whole world. Of course, I missed it because I had to go to a ballet recital, but I was invited, and that’s all that mattered.

Nukeya when does round one end?

Nukeya
18th Sep 2007, 2:04 AM
Timeline:
Applications: 12th-22nd
(Apps will close with the closing of Round 1, so you have plenty of time to enter)
Round One: "I Wanna Talk About ME!" 17th-22nd
Round Two: "Me And My Gang" 23rd-28th
Round Three: "TBA " 29th-4th
Round Four: Final Round: "If I Could Save Time In A Bottle" 5th-10th

*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. *

Each round will close at 10pm Central time on the days specified. This will give me the 24hrs for judges. When I get all scores in and compiled, I will post results and the next round. Though, I have been known to get antsy and post the next round while we wait for scores so you can have a little while to think about the next round.

By the way, I will also be making avatars but it will probably be Friday during the day before I can really sit down and work on them as the rest of the week, I juggle working full time and going to school.

My favorite part of my high school years was... class periods where you didn't really have to get any work done and could just socialize. It would have been even better if I had had more people to talk to. :)

Looking back, I realize how much I miss... the school lunch sloppy joe's!!! I never really liked anything they served except the sloppy joe's. I haven't had one as good since!

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... I would maybe tone it down a little. I can be a bit much all at once and I think if I had gotten people interested in me to begin with, they would have accepted me for who I am.

This picture was taken right after I found out our swim team's official state ranking of #1 in 2001. It's not my most flattering picture, but I think it really expressed my general energy and excitement I exuded when participating on the school sports team. I was always full of school spirit, so I figured this photo was the best choice for re-introducing myself to my fellow alumni.

Song Visuals
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/xibalba.jpg
During the summer after my junior year, I went on the swim team trip to Guatemala (to celebrate our performance at State Finals). It was during this trip that I fell in love with the Mayan culture, cosmology, and mythos; the Mayan perspective of death as the road to awe really struck a cord with me as I had lost my grandfather earlier in the year. Xibalba is the underworld, or realm of the dead, as outlined in the Popol Vuh of the Maya. Meditation on the nature and meaning of death really made me more spiritually aware in my final year of high school (it didn't hurt that my newfound "deepness" really impressed the ladies! ;)).

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/picturesofyou.jpg
A lot of people didn't realize this, but I really enjoyed listening to The Cure in high school. Right after my break up with Annie, my girlfriend of two years, I had Pictures of You on infinite repeat on my cd player at home for at least a month (it probably would have been longer if Mom hadn't confiscated my CD). The song does nostalgically crystalize the bittersweet and fleeting memories of high school.

Back of CD/Song Listing
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/songlisting.jpg
I chose all of these songs because I feel that they all represent a part of who I was in high school, as well as portions of who I am today. Some of the songs reflect the impact of my relationship with Annie, my steady high school girlfriend, on my psyche when I was younger. Other songs deal with my sort of "spiritual awakening" that occured after that summer trip to Guatemala.

Confessional
My favorite part of my high school years was:
Definitely my time on the swim team. I went on my first international trip because of the team and it was fun, but also challenging. The guys and I became like brothers; most of us still keep in touch and try to get together at least once every few months.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss:
My teenaged metabolism! :lol: All kidding aside, I miss the luxury of sleep & free time (which I never appreciated until I got older). Ah, for my good ol' daily nap during Ms. Higgin's Economics class; if I tried sleeping in class now, my students would relentlessly poke me, I'm sure. I swear I've forgotten that sensation of boredom I felt in high school on occasion.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be... because...
Call me optimistically misguided, but I really don't have any major regrets about my high school years. If I did have to change one thing, I probably would have tried to learn an instrument; I have always admired people who can play music and I wish I had used my earlier opportunities to try it out.

My favorite part of my high school years was...Meeting my boyfriend Rex Dante, it was the best part of high school. I never thought anyone like him would ever want to be seen with someone like me. He's so perfect we still get along great even now as adults.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...Figure skating club, I was the captian. I met all kinds of people and i absolutly adored it, we had so much fun.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...I'd have to agree with Rex it would definantly be the glasses, I should have gotten them fixed, I broke them in a skating competiton. I decided to tape them, it looked dreadful, contacts are definantly MUCH easier. I know that now :).

Task 1

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

I designed that front cover all by myself. I did the scribbles, wrote the title and added a small picture of mine. I just felt it would be most personal if I added some of my drawings because they tell a lot about me (same goes for the back of the CD).

Task 2 - 3

I am sorry for having to link, but the file is 11 kb too big :(

click me (http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/Simsville%20High/SamCDBack.jpg)

As the CD title already suggests, I chose great rock songs, that's just my favorite kind of music. The selection of songs is very personal actually, they tell my story. I used to have an on-off relationship with this one girl and when that was finally over, I felt really bad and lonely. Then I met another person, and although I had my doubts in the beginning, we have a great relationship now (we're still together).
Another thing is, all the songs sound good together, and in this order. I am quite a perfectionist, so I just had to do it that way!

Confessional

My favorite part of my high school years was meeting some great people and growing up together with them. We got to know each other quite well and some of my best friends I met in High School.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss the easy life. In High School you never had to worry about anything like bills, finding a job etc. You could be ... free. Relatively.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be being a little less obsessed with the arts because this way I wouldn't miss some great possibilities to make more friends and new experiences. I was quite stuck in my own little world from time to time.

My favorite part of my high school years was;; Definitely the rad awesome people I met! Plus, yeah, learning to cook was fun-as, but the people I met were fantastic. I'm still friends with a lot of them today, but sadly, some of us have drifted apart. This reunion should kick things up again!

Looking back, I realize how much I miss;; The laid-backness of it all. Now we're all in the real world, everything is just go go go, and no-one stops for you. It was never like that in High School.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be;; This is a tough one. I really did enjoy my time in high school, so I don't really know. If i have to say something, it'd probably be that I should have mingled more with other cliques. Ours was so exclusive and tight-knit that I never really gave any of the others a chance, and I wish I had have been a bit more open minded about the others, especially the Preps & Jocks. Some of them seemed okay, but our groups did clash so it was hard to talk to eachother.

I may need to drop out here. My game isn't loading properly. Custom Content is enabled, but it seems to be having trouble finding my Downloads directory. About half of my clothes are missing, all of my objects are missing, and none of my pose objects are there. (Well, that figures. They ARE objects.) I'm also showing a lot of default thumbnail hairs, but it is at least recognizing that something is missing from them rather than showing nothing at all. I'm going to try backing up my Downloads directory, then deleting it and restoring it to see if that sorts the tracking out. But the thing is massive, so that is going to take a while.

I also discovered after he moved into a dorm that I had Lucifer mixed up with one of his sisters. He is the one who dearly loves meeting new people to argue with, she is the one who refuses to talk to anybody and leaves all the socializing up to her twin sister who was "The toddler with 15 friends." Since the personality points he actually has affect the poses it is easiest to get from him, I'm going to change him from a loner to captain of the debate team, if that is ok.

I'm editing my Application, although I accidentally got a full body shot for the adult rather than a face shot. So I'm going to post it until I get a proper one.

sidneydoj-It sounds like you are missing meshes for some things. Or, if you have the meshes, perhaps try deleting your caches and seeing if that gets them to load properly. I would hate for you to have to drop out! Keep me posted and let me know if you get it figured out. The debate team idea is fine :)

Kipsnif-I would prefer you to only have your Sim in the pictures for your album since it's "I Wanna Talk About Me!" and all about your Sim. As for the library card, you can have as little or as much info on it as you would like. There's really no set format for them. It's whatever you want it to have.

I would already have come out before graduation. I did it in my study-years and I got a lot happier after my coming out.

The meshes should still be there because I didn't delete anythig and they used to be there. Deleting the caches didn't help. It just made my game take 45 minutes to load. I moved my downloads folder to the desktop, then went into homecrafter and made a new wall. The game made a new downloads directory with my wall in it that showed up in the game. I moved my new wall into the proper folder of my downloads directory on the desktop, then moved the contents of my desktop downloads folder into the one the game was having no trouble finding. But my son will be home from school before my game would have a chance to load to see if that worked. At least I had time to make a Library card with stuff I got yesterday while I was discovering the flaws in trying to take pictures os a sim with an active score of 9 on an unowned community lot and no hacks other than enabling testing cheats to make him selectable. (This is the first time in my life I have used that cheat. I'm surprised I remembered about it!)

My Library card. The head librarian added that note after the third time I lost track of time while I was researching something and got locked in overnight.

Album Cover (Sorry about posting a thumbnail, but the file was too large.)
http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/2706/contestalbumcover2dl2.th.jpg (http://img520.imageshack.us/my.php?image=contestalbumcover2dl2.jpg)

I was putting together a picture for Dancing in the Sands of Time, and I realized it would work better as an album cover. It shows that I am unconventional (Not that this is news to anyone.) and highlights my fascination with the mystical and paranormal.

Back cover:

http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/9440/contestalbumbackyd1.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Song list:
1. Toccata and Fugue in D minor. I love old horror movies, and old horror movies love to use this.
2.Fortuna Rota from the Carmina Burana. (Not O Fortuna, although I like that one as well.) It is about how Fortune always changes from bad to good and from good to bad.
3. The Highwayman. (The poem is great too.) I like its story, especially when Bess warns him with her death.
4. Deal with the Devil. Faust was an idiot who deserved what he got, but the tune is wonderfully dark.
5. Nightfall. An instrumental piece which excellently conveys the complex beauty and terror of the night.
6. The Haunted Bridge. The whole idea of a bridge between worlds fascinates me.
7.Solitude and Salvation. Written and performed by my fiancee Ivy Copur. How could I possibly leave it off my list? She wrote it right after we got engaged, and is insisting that it will be played at our wedding.
8. Bad Man. That's me...
9.Paint it Black. I often feel that way.
10. Beyond Death's Door. Even the ghosts stop to listen to that one.
11. Call of the banshee. (A funeral dirge on Irish bagpipes.) I suppose it says something that my mom used this as a lullaby for me when I was little. But I still like it.
12. Dangerous Dreams. "If you never dare to reach, you will never achieve. You will never succeed if you never believe."
13. Dancing in the Sands of Time. It makes me wonder what immortality would be like.





http://img516.imageshack.us/img516/2001/luciferscreenshot13bc8.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Deal with the Devil- I find Magic to be fascinating. (Do you honestly believe it is real?) This is another reason the librarian got upset about locking me in...



http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/6401/luciferdangerousdreamsmm5.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

I love to study new things, even when other people shy away from them. And since I don't sleep much, I do a lot of studying at night.
(I was rather disappointed with that painting, so it surprised me that it sold for $750)





Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was... Being on the debate team. It gave me a chance to expand my studies.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss... Totally free Internet access from the computer lab. (Especially after I found a way to bypass the security and log into the chat room with Ivy.) Now it needs to be paid for.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be -My family- because Mom is the neighborhood slut, my goody two-shoes sister Bianca has had everyone in town fawning over her ever since she was a baby, Malik is a pest, and Julian is a tattle-tale. The guy who is probably my dad likes to float through the wall and wake me up every night, the guy who actually raised us (and insisted on DNA proof that he is the father of the twins) likes to haunt the bathtub while anybody is using it, and Goopy is just a loser. So I don't even care much for any of my dads. Bianca's twin sister Litasha is the only decent one in the bunch. Unfortunately, my best alternative would have been to move in with Ivy's grandparents and that would make her my sister...

I suppose I might also be a bit more careful about being the last one to leave the chemistry lab. But contrary to rumors, I was not the one who switched the labels on the bottles of sulfuric acid! Did I have means? yes. Motive? yes. Opportunity? yes. But I was framed. Not that it is relevant now. Or I could have gotten to know Darlene before Ivy literally dropped into my life. It's too bad I'm a one woman guy; she is fascinating.

What program are you useing Nukeya?

Nukeya
19th Sep 2007, 1:35 AM
Well, to make the pictures, I use Paint.net cause it's simple and free and I have found several plug-ins that fit what I need the program for this far. After I'm done editing the slides in there, I open up the GIMP and put them together with that. The problem that I am running into is that when I go to save them, the program indexes the colors and only allows something like 250 colors with the default settings, so it clumps some of the colors together and the slides end up pixelated looking. I used the same thing last cycle and they turned out okay, but this time, I have a tie-dye looking background and it doesn't seem to like all the colors. If all else fails, I guess maybe I'll have to go back to a plain looking background. :(

For the songs, they can be made up...for instance, if your Sim has some weird chicken fetish, then maybe you could make up a song title like..."My Chicken, My World". Or...you could use the existing song, "The Chicken Dance". Whichever is fine, and you can use a combination. Basically, what you are doing here, everyone, is rather than saying I like chickens, I like classical music, I like to eat bugs, or whatever, you are creating song names or using existing song names to tell us that. I know, perhaps I like to do things the hard way, but, I like to be different ;) Hope that helps!

And...Zaggy...ur message box is full :P

It's really not that bad. It just looks like you added noise to it... Maybe try sharpening the slides and then saving it.... see what it does. I would use it either way. I can see a difference but it doesn't look bad. :)

Well, here are 3 of the avatars I made. I may try to find something else instead cause I don't like the pixelation, but here's what I have so far. If you don't use them, I won't be offended by any means, but here they are if you want them.

Okay...the rest are going to look a bit different than the first 3, but I found a way to make them easier than I was doing before. So, to the first three...I can make you ones to match the rest, but this is what the rest are going to look like. Yoshika...I swear...avatars are not liking me at all this cycle. I mixed up the size on yours, so, it's a bit smaller than the others. Let me know if you really want me to fix it and I can. Sorry!

My favorite part of my high school years was...
The impromptu rap battles- I was pretty good… ish-, the hilarious pranks sans any threat of jail time, oh and the easy money- I’d sell anything. It was just a lot of fun times. I played around with what friends I had doing things I enjoyed. It was a welcomed break from boring classes as I felt middle-aged people making what they did couldn’t teach me much.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
The lucrative deals I made in the hallways. Snicker* It was way easier making money off of my peers back then than it is now. I’ve learned a couple tricks since then though. But honestly, what I think I miss most was being able to joke around and not take myself so seriously.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ...
How concerned I was about everyone’s opinion of me.

Because...
I was exhausted at the end of the day after trying to please everyone. I had to be the fat funny kid constantly trying to make up for what shortcomings I thought everyone saw.

Name: Leila Channing

Family heritage/origin:
Simfrican-Simerican

How long did you attend Simville?
I did my time in the Simville education system for thirteen years. Time served.

Current age:
24

In high school, I was known as…
The 'Computer Nerd' to those who didn't know me, 'Hacker Extroidinaire' to those who loved me, and that 'Crazy Hacker Girl' by those who hated on me.

In the last five years, I’ve…
I graduated from Sim State University with my Computer Science degree and was immediately swooped up by Sim Trust Co. Banking to be head of their Account Intrusion Apprehension team. So everyday I get to tell 40 other 'nerds' like myself what to do when it comes to stopping hackers like us.

The most memorable thing that happened to me in high school was…
Well besides from being banned from the library becuase I tried to hack the school newspaper to try and educate my fellow students (Cafeteria Serves Expired Meat), I would say it would be stopping a hacker from Veronaville High from trying to assign the whole senoir class with failing GPA's...never found out who he was though.

Nukeya, the avatars look FANTASTIC!

ps: if you're still having trouble with pixelation, might i suggest gickr (http://gickr.com/)? it's a free site that lets you upload up to ten pictures and make an animation out of them. if i want animation avatars, i usually use it and theres no pixelation.

just a suggestion, but it might help. :)

If you'd like to hear what the songs represented sound like, please click on the images to access fan-made music videos on Youtube.

(Warning, they are very addictive songs)

Cover
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/whitenerdy.jpg (http://youtube.com/watch?v=XbVtbc_XzrI)
Holla at all the Nizzerds in the Hizzouse!
I wanted the CD cover to really show off my funky, off-beat, and utterly nerdy side. Weird Al's White and Nerdy is practically my personal theme song; it's like Weird Al was stalking me, peering through my windows writing this song.

Song Visuals
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/firsttodie.jpg (http://youtube.com/watch?v=1yXAEzp6W-U)
"Five guys and a bag of dice, it's Friday night's game
Got a Cleric and a Fighter/Thief but we ain't got a Mage
My friends they all looked at me, and they said the job was mine
You might suck at level one but you'll rip at level nine"
Yup, this song pretty much exactly describes the times I was a PC in our regular D&D games; don't get me wrong, I enjoyed playing Gandorf, my level 3 wizard, but man, oh, man did he die a lot. And I mean, A LOT. Those were the good ol' days when the Mountain Dew kept flowing and the Funyuns were plentiful.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/codemonkeysong.jpg (http://youtube.com/watch?v=aqTaqVi9J8k)
Code Monkey likes Fritos/Code Monkey likes Tab & Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man/With big, warm, fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Just like the Code Monkey of the song, I enjoy said bouncy, bubbling beverages, worked with computers. I confess that when I came across a bug in my code that gave me trouble, I also reacted a bit like a monkey... I also have a warm, fuzzy, secret heart. I was totally awkward around my crush in high school and didn't really know how to properly engage in conversation with her. If only talking to girls was as simple as designing a login page.

Back of CD/Song Listing
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/fetts_vette.jpg (http://youtube.com/watch?v=2z9XTeeA43o)
Star Wars. Boba Fett. All this picture needs is Leia in the Tatooine Slave Outfit and I'm in geeky heaven.
This is a small sampling of my rather comprehensive selection of Nerd Rock, Geeksta Rap, and Filk music. One glance at the titles and artists of these songs clearly indicates why these songs represent who I am. I'm a Nerd & Geek (yes, there is a difference) and I pwn it.

Library Card
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/tobiaslibrarycard.jpg
My library card, my best friend
Ah my poor abused library card. This is actually the replacement card I had to purchase (darn $4 replacement fees!) during the final semester of my senior year as I had worn the magnetic stripping into oblivion on the back. As you can see, even though I had this card for only 4 or so months, the protective coating had already begun to tear away. Luckily my office now uses retinal scanning as opposed to ID cards, so there's little chance of me having such issues now (although eyeball replacements cost a lot more than $4).

Confessional
My favorite part of my high school years was:
Skipping lunch and spending the half-hour in the computer lab working on my homemade computer games. I still have my first text-based Star Wars RPG (made on an ancient Commodore 64 I rebuilt) on my personal computer. I actually made some cash working on websites for small businesses during lunch period sometimes too.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss:
Afterschool Quiz Bowl/Future Engineers of America/Physics Club meetings in Mr. Pemberton's classroom. The best times I had aside from gaming were building a trebuchet, wiring my first mini-bot, dropping assorted objects from the school roof (what? we were just testing the Laws of Gravity), making a potato gun (and firing it off on the football field), and preparing for Quiz Bowl competitions.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be... because:
I would have been a bit less shy and more assertive, especially when it came to girls. Dating in "the real world" is so difficult and it would have been so nice to have had some practice in high school (at least in school you have something in common with the girl). If I had realized how it wasn't such a big deal to talk to girls when I was in high school, I definitely would have taken the chance and asked Leila Channing out to coffee or something. Alas, hindsight is always 20-20.

Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was... when I met my bestie there. That was my favourite part of highschool because I was a loner before then. We created a band together.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss... the canteen food. Most people hated it but I loved it! Kudos to Belinda! (the canteen lady)

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... I think if I could go back I would've talked more and voiced my opinions more because I sort-of floated through high-school with no-one knowing me. I found that I voiced my opinion through my songs.

I was offline while you were working on avatars, but I use the animation function that comes with a program called Photobie. It does a pretty good job. (It's what I made mine with.)

I would be willing to help out as well.

Though the title originally was "I wanna talk about me", I have noticed a few variations to it on different CDs. This is fine as long as you have the "talk about me" part. Don't stray too far from the original title, but "let's talk about me" or something along those lines is fine. I will be sure and let the judges know that a varietion is okay as long as it's not too far from the original idea.

I have updated the avatars post with more avis, so if I didn't have yours yesterday, check here (http://www.forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1021120&postcount=144), yours might be there now. I will continue to work on trying to get them all done, but as I said, I have a kajillion things going on throughout the week, so my scheduled pretty tight.

Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was... whenever football and basketball season was up. Classes were limited then and almost everyday we'd celebrate the return of our school's team and cheer practice was 24/7. Then after all that, we'd get to chill with the squad and the team and our other school mates. It was one beautiful school student reunion, (since there wasnt really cliques in our school)

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...the girls, the boys, the laughter, the jokes, my pom-poms, the gossips, the flirts and the sleepovers.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... to be a little more outspoken and speak of what i think rather than giving in to others thoughts.

Task one
Cd Cover - I used my favorite cd Know the Score. As you can see it says it under the "i want to talk about me" I left it to show that its my favorite cd.

It is a mix of Rock and Broadway musicals.

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/bob_lover260/KTScoverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr122333.jpg


Tasks 2-3

Shes a Lady

I always shop and i think alot of people didn't know that about me. I used to wear such plain clothing. ( even stuff at walmart)
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/bob_lover260/ShesaLady.jpg

Wrong Way

I used the song Wrong way because i always never no what to and i was always scared and confused.

Task 4

Confessional
My favorite part of my high school years was...just the whole rush. Meeting new people, losing papers, getting bad grades, drama, and protesting...i did it alot =) but I loved it.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss... All my friends because now that i think of it friends dont matter that much when your older.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... Focusing more on my art because now that i remember i was pretty much always partying, drinking, and being with my friends. So if I foscused more on my art I wouldn't have had to try so hard to get in collage.

Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was...
The Prom Oviously! I totally beat up stacy and humiliated her in front of the hole... well WORLD!
Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
Tehee... honestyly .. stacy. I miss how she tried to make fun of me. Tried to get me mad but she couldnt .. other than the prom.. oviously. It was so funny when her and her friends tried to bring me down. Didnt work!
If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...
I would change how I Showed my self as a 'sweedy' Even though it didnt effect me , i hated the fact that they wouldnt shut up and leave me alone because i looked like an innocent SWEDISH!!!!

Task one:
http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m209/HondaKatsuya/CDFront.jpg

I chose this picture because it most displays what I'm about. Video games are my life and one of my comforts after a stressful day. Games relax me, inspire me, and challenge me to do my best, and hey...if I fail, I'll just try again.

Tasks 2-3:

http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m209/HondaKatsuya/CDInsert1.jpg

This picture represents my obsession with video games, even so much as to cosplay as the hero of Kingdom Hearts, complete with my own keyblade.

http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m209/HondaKatsuya/CDInsert2.jpg

I'm sure more than a few people knew I was gay, but fewer knew what a narcissist I was. I loved my own face almost as much as I loved my boyfriend Eclipse. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, so I guess that means in my own eyes I'm an Adonis.

Task 4: Back Cover:

http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m209/HondaKatsuya/CDBack.jpg

I chose songs from my favorite video games. I had two from Suikoden II, one from FF7, one from FF8, Mario Brothers, Kid Icarus, Zelda, Sonic R, two from The Sims (coincidentally, Vacation came out around 2002), and two from Kingdom Hearts, one in English and the same song in Japanese.



Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was hanging out with my boyfriend, Eclipse, and our small circle of friends. Some of my former video game partners still play World of Warcraft with me.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss living off my parents' money instead of trying to make my own. My band gets me by well enough, but it takes precious time away from my video games...

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be my glasses. I never knew just how pretty I could be if I just broke down and got contact lenses, it helps a lot with my cosplay too.


Optional Task: Library Cards

CD Cover:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v17/Bmw4z/cdcover_shot.jpg

I chose this photo because it expresses how I feel when I hear electronica. Just wide-open and nonchalant about any type of ill-reporach thus the title, Talk About Me.

CD Insert (to be re-done):

CD Backcover:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v17/Bmw4z/cdback_shot.jpg

Chose these tracks because I love technology, and at the heart of my music genre is machinery. Its a very lovely tracklisting...for us "nerds".


Confessional:

My favorite part of my high school years was... being different. Being an outcast I believe knid of prepared me to deal with the difference and melting pot that was college and that is the world. I believe some people were just too sheltered in Simville High. They make believe their social butterflies but they only socialize with 'like' butterflies.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss... the easiness. Being able to sleep in school, still ace a test, go home eat Mac and Cheese and play video games till I got vertigo.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... expanding my network more and asserting a firm "nerd" clique at Simville High. Making sure we got teams, and parties for us too because...we really had no say in some of the cheesy crap that went on.

Library CARD/ I.D. Card : Worst picture ever, they caught me in the middle of a yawn. Then I doodled on it later after I was banned from ever using a Simville Comp again.

I just spent an hour and a half getting him to do group research, then moving his chair over near a table filled with books (Thanks to buyable books and the prop for the education adjustor from Insim.)

http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l234/EuroSand/SimClassReunion_Cheryl/Cheryl_R1_cdcover.jpg
I love all sorts of music, but my favorite is bossa nova, R&B and ska. I mixed this cd with my favorite art related songs.
This relates to me a lot because I tend to be dreamy and un-practical when thinking about the things I have to do.
I almost always relate common everyday things to my art.


-* Inside #1 *-

http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l234/EuroSand/SimClassReunion_Cheryl/Cheryl_R1_cdinside1.jpg
If my Life were an Easel
I love this song because it shows that everyone has the potential to
be who they want to be, but it is our choice on what we'll end up doing.



-* Inside #2 *-

http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l234/EuroSand/SimClassReunion_Cheryl/Cheryl_R1_cdinside2.jpg
Wish I Were
This song is about wanting to be someone at a certain point.
I like it because there was a moment in my life which I actually wanted
to be Brock's girlfriend, but he was only into blonde popular girls.

My favorite part of my high school years was...
Art class and recess. I loved to hang out with my two best friends and gossip while eating Cheetos dipped in cream cheese.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
My metabolism and all of my free time to eat, sleep, giggle, laugh, cry... just to be a carefree kid.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...
I would have tried to be more outgoing and tried something different, like debate team or try out for cheerleader, even if I didn't make the cut.

I wanted to ask before the judging if my links to the Youtube videos for the songs I used is okay for this entry. If not, I can simply remove them; I thought it might be fun to make an opportunity to hear the songs. :)

I also would like to address my application for Tobias. I have also edited the application (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1017184&postcount=28) slightly for Tobias, as it has been pointed out that my entry contained a word which may offend some with more delicate sensibilities.

INSERT PG2
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/sk1stp.jpg
No one knew that I usually rushed home after school because I was working hard. Unfortunately I couldn't hold on to one for more than a month or so. I've had every job imaginable; drive through clerk, newspaper delivery, receptionist, restocker and that aweful run as a diner server. Brutal!

INSERT PG4
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/SK2NDP.jpg
I used to love hanging out at the beach, maybe it had something to do with my being from an island but it was my favorite spot. It might have been the reason I lost one or two of those jobs. However, this song is more about life being that other kind of beach**. Hint. Hint.

BACK COVER
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/skbc.jpg
SONGS
1. Ms.Know-it-all-nothing left to learn – I noticed early on that I could sleep through class and not miss a thing. Well… I stayed awake during pre-calculus/2.Working woes- see Insert Pg2/ 3. Leave me alone-u bore me – That was my lovely attitude a.k.a. friend repellant/4.Life’s a beach pun intended- see Insert Pg4/5.Can’t Can’t Dance – I loved a good party as much as the next girl but I lacked the moves/6.Sarcasmo’s clown song – Theme for the name I gained being so gosh darn sarcastic/7.TGIF-school’s out – Friday nights were movie nights with the gang/8.Sense of humor-not suicide – Policy I lived by. High school was no cake walk socially but I got through it/ 9.Wall flower-Roses are overrated – The popular kids (roses) weren’t all that special, Not to me anyways. I wanted more to be friends with the math whiz or the guy who kicked a** at all the games.

http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/skc.jpg
My favorite part of my high school years was...
Not having to work hard for good grades. Lets just say college wasn’t so easy. I also miss the skip days. If only I could just ditch work and go to the beach without any dire consequences.
Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
Being able to see friends everyday at lunch. I took that for granted and nowadays I can hardly make time.
If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...
I would definitely have tried to be more outgoing. My general demeanor was just… detached and I alienated a lot of my classmates that way. Only a few people got to know that I wasn’t just some nerd but that I had a sense of humor and barely spent any time doing homework. I only managed to join the newspaper and swim team my last few months in high school.

If I were President, I'd totally ban classes in school, they just suck!

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
My old boyfriend Brock, and making out with him, like, all the time! Oh and all the other gorgeous guys that waited on my hand and foot, gotta love them! And the geeks that like totally did my assignments for me. And all those lazy summers down on the beach, I so totally miss!

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ...
Oh my gawsh! Who wants to change stuff about high school! High school was totally fah-bulous, and its only the nerds and geeks that wanna change stuff, cause their life just like totally sucks! Everyone wants to be me!

My favorite part of my high school years was...
The games I had the honor in participating in, winning those games, winning the Mr. Popularity, Homecoming King and Prom King three years in a row and the beautiful view of girls skirts at springtime ;)

Looking back, I realize how much I miss...
The inter-state trips for our championship games... and making out with my girlfriend Cindy in the library stacks :)

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... because...
I think I let down more than a few girls in my day, sometimes I think back and realize that I could have been a bit more humble and not let the popularity get to my head.

My favorite part of my high school years was...everything that I was in charge of ,I had controll over every dance and most of every club and the travling it was awesome.

Looking back, I realize how much I miss... The clubs they were great I was always a part of somthing and every kid in school knew who i was.. so the popularity also.

If I could change one thing about my high school years, it would be ... making more time for myself and friedns because... I was always so busy so i always was canceling on girlfriends and friends. I didn't go to partys i never went anywhere on the weekend. I guess didn't really experience school i was just controling it.

Well, in going through these, it seems I'm missing a few individual scores it seems. Or maybe I'm not, I'm just tired and blind. I hate to do this to you all guys, but I'm gonna hold off posting scores until the morning when I'm awake enough to function (Usually I work 3rd shifts and ended up sworking a 2nd, which is during my normal sleep time). I don't want to have the mix up we had last round with scores. Again, I'm sorry. Had I not gotten called in today, I would have been fine. I will grant an extra day for the upcoming round since it's my fault we're a little behind.

If you want to get a head start on the next round, you will be making myspace pages for your sims. I will give you what I have as far as the directions I sent out to someone ahead of time and will post the official rules for the round tomorrow. Again, sorry to do this to you all as I know how it is to wait.

Also, there will be cuts this round. It looks like 2 guys and 2 gals will be cut each round to bring us to the final 4 for the final round. I will try and get the results up as soon as I can.

After graduation, it seems like for many, this is the last time for them to see their classmates until the first reunion. Some, however, are capable of keeping in touch using things such as myspace. You will be creating myspace pages for your Sims for this round. There will be no confessionals, as there is much to be filled out already on a myspace page. You can add as many or as few decorations as you would like. You might also choose to add quiz answers, songs, a signable guest book.....just keep in mind- what do you think your Sim's page would have on it?

The requirements:

*Minimum of 5 pictures of you and your friends post graduation. These might be of you out on a Saturday night, studying for a college exam, etc, but be sure to include the descriptions of what it is you are doing.

*You must include a "Top 8" section of friends. (If you choose to create a simulated myspace page, then you will need to have small thumbnail sized pictures of your different friends. Check out myspace.com if you are unfamiliar with the layouts.)

*You should fill out the various "About me" sections accordingly for your Sim and what they might say.

*Not required, but work together! Share pictures! Feel free to post links to your Sims pages and add each other as friends if you choose to use myspace. (I know Honda and Hakashi have pages for their Sims already. I think that since you will be here for that round, you will be okay as far as having friends to add.)

*5 points extra will be granted as an optional for creating a slideshow for your Sim on their page. I know "Rockyou" has things to create slideshows.

Let me know if you have any questions. There's really not many things required for this one other than to have fun with it. If you choose NOT to use myspace and instead want to just do pictures and simulate the pages, let me know and I can give you additional requirements for that.

Wow, that round sounds so cool :D Great idea, Nukeya!
I hope I'll be able to do this round and won't get eliminated, it sounds like a lot of fun.
If anybody is interested in downloading my Samuel, you can get him at this sub-forum (http://themesshall.freeforums.org/viewtopic.php?t=52) at The Mess Hall (themesshall.freeforums.org), but you have to be a member of the site to download anything.
If you got any problems, just PM me :)

edit: Nukeya, I have a question: Is the MySpace profile supposed to be from shortly after graduation (teen / YA) or from "now" (adult)?

I do not use or go to MySpace, so I will need directions to simulate it. If anybody wants Lucifer, I do not have BV, so I can use sim surgery to package him. (He is one of the kids from my Black widow challenge, so he was born in game. For reference his father is Benjamin Long.) I think his horns are on MTS2, and his adult/YA clothing is the bodybuilder mesh by beoxboy. I need to double check Enalya and Healene readmes, but I think I can include the skin and eyes. And he likes to change clothes, so I can put him in something Maxis to ship him.

This is a myspace page of them as teens right?

In your app it said he was utterly humiliated by tripping in the cafeteria, and he seems too confident here to even care about something like that five years later. The first three pictures were all really dark and you couldn't see his face. Love the lyrics- whatsists on the pictures though.

You forgot the song title in a picture, you didn't specify the genre on the album cover. You had almost none of the necessary writings... I hate to take off that many points but... All of the pictures and the few writings were very cliche'. The photoshopping was extremely patchy, and in Hey Jude his face is pixelated. What writing you had was very... blah.

The app didn't say that he was anythign much in the way of a class clown, and that was a big focus here, so you lost some for continuity. Elsewise, nice job.

Something about the picutres just seemed a little off. The text definitely showed his nerdy/geekyness, but I didn't really get that feeling in the pictures. And some of the decorations seemed strange, I love the touch of the binary numbers, but the picture was a little empty. It all seemed a bit too typical nerdy.

The pictures are very nice, I liked the cover and the back, but I felt that especially the third one was too busy. I like how the second picture was done, I especially love how it gave him a little different personality than Mr. Popular. But I didn't really get the Mr. Popular at all from the pictures. And you forgot to include what sort of music it was on the cover.

The text on the task two-three pictures seemed to take away from it. The same thing could've been accomplished just by writing it outside of the picture. Some parts of wall in the third picture were left unpainted, and it was a bit too dark.

Execution: 8/10
Creativity: 4/5

You didn't include what type of music it was on the cover, or the title of the song in the second picture. Without reading your app, I wouldn't have known anything about Jack, the pictures didn't seem to reflect upon it. I also don't really understand the "alone in the hallway" thing, he was always alone but he never had time for himself? Which doesn't really make sense, and then he's smiling in the picture which makes less sense...

I had some trouble reading the text, the color and the background made it hard to distinguish what it said. Also be careful of the pause buttons. I didn't really get the feeling of his stereotype in the pictures.

Execution: 6/10
Creativity: 5/5

The task two-three was empty. The first wasn't a 1/2 shot, and you didn't explain what they represented. It didn't seem like there was much going on in the picture.

I thought the cd cover was nice but it was a little hard to read the words on that background. For task two and three the pictures are nice but I think they could’ve been a little bit more creative. You could’ve had a shopping bag in her hand or something because she’s just standing there posing in front of a fashion store which is not really portraying that she likes shopping. But overall it was nice.

Your pictures were really nice but it was kind of hard for me to see her personality through the pictures. Task 2 was really good with showing her with all her different jobs. I think task 3 could’ve did without the extra images of her. I think that took away from the pic but overall it was good.

I think everyone lost points on execution--maybe one person included all of the explanations you'd required in the task guidelines. My favorite picture of them all is this one:

I saw your explanation for why you used the CD cover you used, but you were supposed to make your own. Trying to fit Audrina's info (title, songlist, picture) over the old cover made it really hard to read and messy. And then you ended up without much on the backside at all--needing your sim wasn't in the rules, but you didn't really do much with the cover at all.

I do like the backgrounds you chose for the song pics. Especially the "Wrong Way" sign backwards, that really made me smile!

This is tough, because I liked the layout and composition on your song slides, but your CD covers are completely illegible in parts. I'm still not entirely sure what the second word IS on the bottom of the front cover.

Wait, I'm confused. Does Vikki love the beach? (Just kidding.) I'm not sure if you've really captured a personality for her, though--it seems like she's got a chip on her shoulder from teasing in high school, still. Is there anything more to her than being teased?

Definitely liked how everything tied together in your pictures. But, even though I'm not trying to be hard on grammar and such in confessionals, but it's really distracting for a pic when it is devoted to a word, like "paradise," and then the word's misspelled. Just brings down the presentation.
