Wondering if I should get into modeling. I tried when I was way younger… my mom took me to this thing… it wasn’t a casting call, but kind of. It was a competition for a modeling gig, all paid. It was advertised all over in and around town and the deal was they would pick *one* person and pay for everything—photographs, gig and everything. So I talked to my mom—asked her if she thought I could win. She said I should audition, so we went. We had to interview with 3 different people, then they took our measurements, and we had to walk down a runway…. 

300 and something young women showed up for this thing. It took hours. I did not win. But they picked the top 3 and I was one of them. The two top place losers got nothing except an offer for a sign on with the agency, but it was not free.  

anyway, I wonder if this might be fun for me to try. I’ll be 40 soon, but that might be even better as I’m sure there’s less competition in this age bracket. I would just do it for fun. I love clothes.. fashion.. dressing up is fun to me. And you know I have Leo Rising. 🤔

I was surprised because the winner was about 5’4” or 5’5”. She was beautiful though. Natural blond. It was a bummer. I was like, dang… beat by one, or two? If only they hadn’t been there. Sometimes things just aren’t meant to be. Really and truly though I still thought of it as though I won. They still called my name out. Technically I did win, but just not the big thing. And I couldn’t afford to pay for all that stuff. A portfolio, fees for the agency… so I dropped the idea after that.

@allie120 haha, right… why not? This is not to brag, but I feel so many things have opened up for me, which feels amazing. Not just materially, but in my mind… I feel like I can do most anything I want to do. I can do so many things. Too many things… 
The problem is I want to do too many things at once. That’s my problem.

@sirena-oceana It sounds like you are feeling confident, adventurous, put also it’s a time to make a strategy, or make goals, towards those things. It’s great!

My sister lives in Memphis. As in, the city. Her work closed at 1:00 today. I hope everything will be ok and the protests peaceful. We just got home from being with the granddaughters and I see people are gathered all around awaiting the release, with signs and everything. 😒

My husband turned the channel to penguins, so that’s fine with me. It’s all in God’s hands now.

I need an artichoke!  Jeez! I saw this word... and realized I have not had an artichoke for 15 years! My husband is allergic to them!

I am going to hunt one down... two of them. I mean, I was a real, raw artichoke, with BUTTER to dip it in.

My Italian mom used to make stuffed, steamed artichokes in pressure cooker.   A mixture of breadcrumbs, garlic, salt, and enough olive oil to moisten, stuffed between the largest petals at the base.  The stuffing would finish with a consistency similar to tamale filling. Melted butter for unstuffed upper petals.

@elsa My stepdads restaurant used to do a grilled artichoke (over oak) with chipotle aoli. So frickin good! I just steam them and dip them in mayo- still frickin good:) They grow not far from where I live and I don’t think they grow in many places.

I finally dreadlocked my hair. Maybe some of you remember me talking about wanting to do that. I’ve been wanting to since I was a teenager. I tried when I was 20ish but it was a disaster lol. So far this time (I did them correctly after doing research) they look like shit lol, but I’ve learned that they take time to mature and are looking better every day (up to a year to fully “mature”) so I’m practicing patience and down for the process. 
I’m excited, and it’s strange but I feel different already. Hard to explain but I just feel like ME with them. I feel in my heart that Ill probably have them for the rest of my life.
