Today my sisters team was competing in the final match of the championships. Lady Tigers vs. The Stars; this game would decide who would win first place and win the State Championships for AAU. Before my sisters game started, the older Lady Tigers team was competing against the older Stars team and the Tigers won. My sister's team was happy but at the same time, they had some big shoes to fill. It was a very close and intense game with the score going back and forth but in the end the Tigers won! At the end of the game, the announcer recognized all of the players and awarded them with their trophy. Everyone was overjoyed and afterwards we went out to dinner to celebrate.

Today my mom, family friend Michele, and I went to go support my little sister's basketball game with her team the Lady Tigers. It was very fun to watch but it was clear to see that the Tigers had an edge over the other team. The score was a blow out, with the Tigers winning 56-9. Michele was astounded by how well they played seeing as she has never seen my sister or her team play and it was funny seeing her reactions. Meanwhile, her daughter Michaela, almost one year old, tried to steal the show (and other people's food) by just being flat out adorable. It was a great game but hopefully the next one will be more of a challenge, as those are the more entertaining ones. :)

Today, even though it was a B day, I went to school to print out my scholarship proof for Avid. We had to have them in our college folder by today and I'm very relieved I got that out of the way. With that complete, I am confident that I will once again get straight A's for third quarter like I did in first quarter. :)

Today in Avid we had our annual egg hunt outside at school. It was pretty fun. At first I only found one egg but I actually found a second one just walking back to the "cornucopia", the line we had to stand in after finding two eggs in order from the first person back to the last. Maurice had the 'grenade' egg so that means one person from Hyperion had to be cut from the games. When we went back inside we opened our eggs, each of them containing a random act of kindness that we are required to complete. Mine were to show up to class early for the rest of the day and ask how I can help and also appreciate my health and do some type of excercise. We also learned that we only have to do one blog a week for fourth quarter so that we can concentrate more on getting ready for our AP tests :)

Today I read chapters one through five of Frankenstein and it's actually more interesting than I thought it would be. It can get very confusing at times though because there are several stories within the story. To sum it up it is about the story of scientist Robert Walton who finds Victor Frankenstein during his journey to Antarctica and he later learns that Frankenstein is on a mission to destroy his creation, the monster, that he regretfully created.

Happy Easter everyone. Thinking back on the holiday, it's always much more fun when you're a child because you go out Easter egg hunting, eat lots of candy, get dressed up, and have a big party with family and friends. Now since my sister and I are older, we don't really do those things anymore. So here's the most festive thing I've done today: decorate this picture with a dotted nose and whiskers and yes, cat ears. There was an option to use bunny ears but they wouldn't fit all the way in the picture so I just used these. Lol!

Today I came home from spending my spring break in New York. It was such a blast but I was ready to come home and just have my own space and be with my family again. The only problem was that I was so tired from staying up all night watching movies with Seraphina and Josh that I was too tired to get up! When I finally did and was finished getting ready, I went out for breakfast and then came back to the apartment until noon when I left for my bus. Thankfully, it was on time and we didn't run into traffic and I was home by 4:30. Home sweet home. :)
Me and Nia.

Today I had a casting for Covergirl Cosmetics for a chance to be the face (or should I say lips) of their newest lipstick. I was so excited, I've always dreamed of modeling for Covergirl, especially because beauty is one of my strong suits. The casting went by very quickly but I left my best impression on them while I was there. Fingers crossed!
Covergirl material right here!

Today was a free day for me so since the weather had warmed up and it was nice and sunny I decided to walk around and sight see for the day. Manhattan is such an amazing place with wonderful areas like Central Park, Time Square, SoHo, Garment District, and many more. I think everyone should visit at least once in their life time. It's a very inspiring and fun place to be. Here's a video of some of the top models in the fashion lip synching to Jay Z's 'Empire State of Mind. I love this :)

Today I shot with photographer Rachel B. for a girly, outdoor, Teen Vogue inspired shoot. When I arrived on set I noticed that she was an artist from her many paintings on the walls. Aside from being an amazing artist, she's also very multi-talented and did the hair and make up as well. I have only worked with two other people that can do that (but she is the first one that was a woman) and it takes a lot of work and skill to master so I definitely admire that. I had a lot of fun shooting around Straus Park and now I can't wait to see the pictures. :)

Today I went on a casting for Macy's. The wait was quite long but I passed the time by talking to some of the other models and eventually my roommate from the apartment, Seraphina, showed up at the casting as well and joined us. Before I knew it, it was my turn to meet the panel of casting directors and give them my all. I felt pretty good about the casting and hope to work with them again soon.

Right now I'm blogging from my roomate Seraphina's computer. Since she is from Germany, her computer is programmed in German too so it's very different than what I'm used to. The keyboard is in a different order and everything is in German. Right now it's telling me that everything I'm typing is wrong because the spellcheck doesn't recognize English. On the plus side, I am learning a little bit of German from doing this.

When we woke up this morning Amber's mom made us bacon, eggs, and croissants for breakfast, which was great. After breakfast we continued to watch movies and then afterwards Amber and her friends accompanied me to get my hair done at a nearby salon. Once that was done we went back to Amber's house and hung out for a little while longer and then I decided to go home. I was quite tired and once I got back to the apartment I stayed up for about 20 minutes to hang out with Josh and Seraphina (my roomate) and then went to bed.
