I love you mostest, forever.
I’m done being a bride for the day.
Ohhh, how I think we all know that feeling of listlessness and fear of the unknown. I know I deal with it every single day. To be honest, I really don’t know what I will eventually do. I have an idea that I want to be out of modeling in under a year and off to work in radio journalism. It’s something I feel as if I have to do. For the time being, I want to make some change to save up and then move into a new field.
I understand so much of the push and pull you’re feeling. I feel as if you are best off just finishing your degree in what you are strongest at. If it’s pre-med/organic chem, then do it. If it’s fucking art - go for it. Business? Do it. Just finish your degree. Even if it’s not for your specific career, it will be finished and done. Reality is that something over half of bachelor’s recipients rarely go into their specific field. It can mean everything (med school) or nothing (me + degree ≠ journalist).
As for the modeling, just finish you schooling first. I know too many models who are struggling to juggle school and castings/auditions/work. It doesn’t work out well and they end up just dropping school all together. Maybe my value set is different, but it just worked better for me. And, since you’re a guy, male models have a longer shelf-life then women. You can start working later and if you’re successful, last longer in that industry. So, good luck! Don’t make yourself sick over it, the only thing stopping you from moving forward is your own brain. It’s easier than you think. xo
Hmm, good question! I think I’m definitely an extrovert, but I’m a major homebody when it comes down to it. So, like you a mix of both. xo
