So two days after the spectacular photo shoot with Barb, January 5, 2022, I returned to review the results and select the photos I would purchase. She probably took about a hundred photos. If I were made of money, I may well have purchased every single photo, they were that good, no…that great! You have seen here what I purchased and those photos will make any modeling career I can hope to create. If it doesn’t happen, it wasn’t meant to be. But these photos will give me my best chance!
I was openly weeping while we looked at all of them. Barb is uber-talented and she is an even better friend and mentor! I learned so much about being a model from her in these two sessions. It was a masterclass for me.
I ran a few errands before returning home. As always, it was blissful being out, being me, being a woman, being accepted by society, being a friend, just being…….
This past Friday, we had over a thousand hits! Wow…..
Sunday, January 9, 2022, was an improv day. I took another two hour workshop with the same wonderful woman from LA that did a workshop I attended a few weeks back. That was the last time I did improv and it showed. My brain was not operating properly and I frankly sucked. That said, I learned a lot and had a very nice time.
But sucking for that didn’t help me much for the next thing on my agenda. I auditioned for an improv troupe, to perform shows over the next few months. Again, I sucked. I simply could not think like an improv player. I hesitated too often. An improv player needs to move the scene forward, provide the who, what, where, why to a scene. I simply kept asking questions. Questions do nothing to forward the narrative and leaves your partner with nothing to work with.
Now I knew going in I had no shot. The immensely talented people that were there all had much, much more experience than I do and they were all awesome. But hey, I tried. I was given a chance. I will try again. I am not being negative, I just sucked. It happens to all of us on one day or another. But it was another day to get out, be me, be around wonderful people, laugh, have a beer or two (while waiting to confirm my sucking), experience something new in life.
Try things, you never know….
