You are smart. You are talented.

Just do your best, and stay calm.

My heart is racing

Can't stop this feeling

My ground is shaking

I wanna let go, go crazy

Dance on the ceiling

My world is waiting

I don't wanna stop, give up

I want it all 'cause

I just ain't had enough

Keep up, we're gonna show the world

That there's just no stopping us

No one can hold us back

We're gonna break the rules

Can't hold us back

We're gonna light the fuse in us

I'm livin' on the wild side, wild side

No telling what I might find, might find

No stopping 'cause it feels right

Feels right

I'm livin on the...

Oh, my gosh!

- Oh, my gosh. Sorry.

- Hey!

Jenny. In a hurry?

Um... Hey, Zac.


You know, a big, big interview.


What are you doing in my driveway?

The swim team is having

a car wash today,

so Dominique is helping me

hand out flyers.

So, uh, hey, come by later

if you get a chance.

I'll throw in your tires for free.

Thank you.

- Okay. See ya.

- Okay.


Oh, my gosh, Zac Chase

wants to polish my tires.

I used to think that

Good things were so bad

No need to hold back not me, no more

I'm walking this road

I'm taking control

My heart can't say no

I'm livin' on the wild side, wild side

No telling what I might find, might find

No stopping 'cause it feels right

Feels right

I'm livin' on the...

On the wild side, wild side

So ready now, it's my time, my time

No stopping 'cause it feels right

Feels right

I'm livin on the...

Don't wanna live my life by design

Locked inside, break out

Break the rules, light the fuse

Something new, that's right

I'm livin' on the wild side

Hey, what's up?

Of course I'm not late.

Okay, yeah. I'm not.

You're important.

You are special, you're an artist.

Everything you do is art.

Why, everything you say,

everything you do

is just all art, it's just brilliant.

You're brilliant.

Right. You're really good.

Oh, I don't wanna talk about it.

Dude, chill.

Artists don't need college.

I will pay for those parking tickets.

You're bringing me down, dude.

I gotta go.

Bye, Mom.

- Breathe.

- Hi.

I'm Lola Perez.

Could you let

Mr. Vasquez know I'm here?

Thanks, I'd appreciate it.

Uh, I don't work here.

I'm a finalist for

the photography internship.

Me, too.

Quiet, please. Voices down.

Mr. Vasquez is having

a creative moment.

Yes, brilliant! [Perfecta luz! Bravo!

Oh, it's so cool.

- Weird.

- Okay.

Now, can I have your portfolios?

Mr. Vasquez would like to review them

before your final interviews.

Yeah. Careful. Mine's still wet.

- Mine's perfectly dry.

- Thanks.

Please have a seat.

This could take ten seconds,

or ten hours.

Hey, didn't you go to Highland Park?

Um, yes.

I still do.


You were that nerdy sophomore

in my senior geometry class.

I'm not nerdy. I'm dedicated.

I skipped the eighth grade,

and now I'm on track

for early college admission.

Wow. That sounds really fun.

But not.


I've already got 12 credits,

two hundred hours

of community service,

maintain a 4.2 GPA,

and run my own business.

This art internship

will perfectly round out my transcript.

Transcript? That's why you're here?

Well, you know, that,

and my passion for photography.

Right, right.

Well, do you wanna know

what I did my last year before college?

You were accepted into college?

I could have been, but I opted out.

You see, a real artist

is a student of life.

Anyway, an internship

with Leon Vasquez

would fast-track my career

as a professional photographer.

Professor Anderson, is this about

my recommendation letter?

No, I'm actually looking for
