    Been There And Done That...not As Much Fun As It Looks.

    I like the attention my body gets me, but a model! There would be no way...just think its kind of stupid! I was a model for a bit when I was 14, I only did one shoot and hated it. I had to model some beach wear. They did it early in the morning (something about the lighting...

    I've Actually Given This Some Thought

    And I don't think its a path that I'd ever want to go down. Not because I'm condemning the fashion industry or modeling in general, but because I can't see myself ever being ok with acting as someone's blank canvas. Too much of my personality and life have centered on...

    Not Meant For It.

    I modeled at this show once for a local designer in DC a few years ago.  It was at a club.  I was nervous as hell...even after the vodka I had before going on stage, I was still nervous.  I can't stand being in the spotlight and I only agreed to do it because I...

    No Model

    As a teen, people have told me to go into modeling and I had thought about it and wanted to go for it but I haven't ended up in that direction.  I chose not to.  Don't get me wrong, I like models.  What I don't like is our society gives out the wrong image to us all especially...

    Users and Abusers

    I modeled. And let me tell you, it sucks. I worried about my weight, of course, but that wasn't what got me down. It was that I had to become paranoid and protect myself at every turn. There was an atmosphere of scam and hustle in everything. Free headshots! (if you work for free...
