Model? Me?!

Ok, I apologize for being away for so long, but I've had some difficult weeks and if it wasn't for my friend Louco to remind me that I haven't been writting here for a while I would have forgotten this blog completely.

I warn you guys that this will look like a narcisist post, but I think I should write about it anyway, first because it really happened and second because my dear friend Laura deserves a lot of credit for those wonderful pictures.

Anyway, I was sitting here in my computer a month ago when a friend logged in and suddenly told me to go meet him in a modeling agency. Yeah, you read that right. My first reaction was to make a joke, but I realized then he was serious about it. Well, it wouldn't hurt to meet the agent and talk a little about the possibilities.

In a sunny morning I talked to the agent and twenty minutes later he was already assigning me for getting some shots and some model ethiquete practice (whatever for I still don't know. That's kinda stupid and pointless. Everybody knows how to smile for a camera!)

I didn't want to spend money on a photo book, seriously. I wasn't serious about the deal. So I asked a friend of mine if she would so kindly take some pictures of me so I could see what would happen.

She did and I must say I'm impressed with the results. I've sent the pictures to the agent and he's already scheduling me for some hair and makeup shooting sections. Isn't that weird? That's not exactly the kind of work I had in mind, but it pays well so... well! A freelance work sometimes won't hurt.

Take a look at some pictures. Lau! You so totally rock, girl!
