  • Hello everyone! I'm sorry that I was, unfortunately, a day late with the winners. My deepest apologies for that. As always, I wish I could make everyone the winner but then it wouldn't be a contest, now would it? All the entries were fantastic, and thank y'all so much for taking the time to take and create these!


    1ST PLACE: Valentina

    First off, yellow is one of the happiest colors (in my humble opinion). The bee is adorable, and it is a nice contrast against the flowers. I also really like the faded grass around the edges, whether that was intentional or not, it really draws attention towards a nice focal point. A great moment captured, in short. Great job!

    2ND PLACE: Julia

    I love these! You were correct in your caption, they are very colorful! The simplicity of the photo with the blue sky peeking through the pink blossoms is as spring-y of an image you can get. I also really liked the contrast of lighting, with the one darker and one lighter, to see the different shades hidden in the flowers. Gorgeous!

    3RD PLACE: Anwen

    Not to mention that you had the first entry in, this is the cutest cat possibly ever! It reminds me a lot of my old cat Kiki. It's so cute how they're all wrappd up in the fuzzy blanket. And that is truly a "dissaproving cat" expression, so funny! The patterns on his/her fur are so pretty. Again, that's just an adorable cat. Thank you!

    HONORABLE MENTION (TIE!): Foxsquirrel & Freida

    Foxsquirrel- In my opinion, this was the best picture in regards to the photo quality itself, so awesome job on that! Also, that's a very cool plant, although I too have no clue what it is! I love the bright green color and the little purple parts as well. Great photo!

    Freida- Your photo stood out to me right away, being the only all black and white photo in the entries! I am a sucker for that, considering I put the B & W filter on literally all my pictures. I like that your feet are almost crossing the texture change in the pavement, and the detail of the anklet. Love!

    Again, thank all y'all for entering! :)
    • Thank you so much!!! I would have replied to this earlier but I haven't been on hardly at all lately :P :))

Too Much To Do

“Yesterday I felt overwhelmed because I had more to do than I was used to (Lots of homework, after school activities and dinner). Do you have any tips for girls to feel less overwhelmed when they have a lot to do?”  - Anonymous Feeling overwhelmed by long to-do lists is a very common experience, especially as we get older and start taking on more responsibilities and commitments, have more time-consuming homework, etc.—so you are far from alone in this. (It’s certainly something I’ve had to…

Not a People Person

"Okay i am going to very very clear...I need advice from someone older than me. I am not very much a people person like I don't talk much around other people how would you say I deal with this?" - Anonymous Hi! I’m not very much of a “people person” myself, and am generally very shy and quiet in social settings, so I definitely understand this. As I know firsthand, it can be hard being less socially inclined than those around us… but I’m actually going to start by suggesting that, contrary to…

Fear of Growing Up

“Dear S2S Mentors, I am afraid of growing up. I have been my whole life, and... I just don't want to grow up. Do you have any advice or reassurance? Thank you.” - Solene   Solene, Good gracious, but I relate to this so deeply. Growing up has been a prospect that’s been rather frightening to me for some years—and (speaking as someone who recently became a legal adult last year) it’s also been very relevant for me of late. That said, the good news (again speaking as someone who recently became a…

Getting Work Done

“I’m in the first year of high school this year and I’ve found I’m really really bad at getting work done like I am not good at it at all. Last year in middle school I didn’t care as much about getting work done because in the long run as long as I was passing my class it wasn’t a big deal. This year it matters more what grades I get and so far I’m getting pretty average grades but they aren’t as good as I’m hoping for. A problem about this is I know I can do better but I just procrastinate and…
