Arizona Luxe (17) YES I CHANGED MY MODEL.
Jan. 12th - Jan. 14th Winter Picture days. It really is so soon. Try to look your best; which is flawless and smile wide. Those cameras aren't taking a picture of you. They're taking a picture of your future at VD. Have fun this day but be careful, it can be embarrassing and disastrous. Plan well!
"Oh gawsh, is it really Picture day? Didn't we /just/ have fall pictures like...in ... fall?" I asked to no one in general. I was in my closet, the other girls had left to class before and therefore I was late to school, but I didn't care. The girls always had a seat reserved for me. Yesterday being the first day of school, everything has gone well. And now, with everything going smooth, they /have/ to bring up Picture day. What a waste..except that these pictures would be in the yearbooks to haunt us forever. Well, they won't haunt me.
I always look good.
My new kitten (a surprise B2S gift from mother) was sitting on my bed that was against the Victorian-wall paper-covered wall, on my side of the room. She purred as if reminding me to hurry up and then she went back to sleep.
Once I made it to school (I skipped homeroom), I was bombarded with the usual compliments. Yeah, I was wearing a tube dress to school, what's the matter with that? The teachers gave me dirty looks but they were just jealous. They could never even try to look hot in a dress to school.
"You look fabulous!" Lyndsey squealed, scanning my outfit. So she made it back from her impromptu trip to France just in time for picture day. I'd ask her for the deets later, so I just gave her two European-style kisses on the cheeks and complimented her hair. "Thanks," she said.
After getting loaded with the compliments, I went to the room that the pictures would be taken in. Right before it was my turn, I checked my cell phone.
I checked my messages. Two were from my mom, reminding me to keep eating Luxe Lean Bars and to take care for my new cat. And one from Olivia telling me that she loved my outfit and forgot to tell me earlier. The last one was from Jared London:
Leaving Barcelona 2nite. Yesterday was an awesome concert. Thinking of u.
I slipped my cell back into my Proenza schouler handbag and sighed. We were on good terms for the last three days. Back-to-back texting, he called once a day and we even managed a mini Skype session last night. Still, something felt odd. Out of place. I wondered how long the long-distance thing would last. I ignored Dahlia and Olivia's advice. Even though I wasn't 110% sure on this guy, there was something that made me want to text back.
After thinking it through, I took my cell out again and texted:
Same here. Picture day 2day. Stressful as usual. How's the tour going? <3
Seconds later, I got a reply. That's what I loved the most. I never had to wait. It read:
The tour's going gr8. I'm working on my debut album. I'm using u as a muse by the way. If that's okay with u ;)
I smiled as I let a few other "normal" girls cut me in line. I was his /inspiration/ for his album? That had to mean something.
Cool. Can't wait 2 hear it. G2g soon, J. <3
Again, a speedy response:
Don't worry about the picture, Ari. You're beautiful. It'll come out perfect. Make sure to picture message it to me later. C U 2nite:)
My heart flipped a few times. The "C U 2nite" meant he wanted to Skype. Of course. I reminded myself to charge my laptop as soon as I got home. Oh my gosh, I so had to send him the picture! Which reminded me, I had one picture message. It was of Jared in Barcelona playing at his concert. Super hot.
I couldn't help but smile widely as I walked up to get my picture taken. Jared was a great confidence-booster.
