    A few people have said that I should be a model... I just don't want to do modeling... I'm not really into fashion or care too much about it. I like making up my own little things. Most models have to get really skinny and many have eating disorders.. plus I don't want to be the cause of turning society into mindless drones. I do admit though that when I was much younger I wanted to be a model... but then later on I decided against it.

    I heard that there is more and more a market for normal models (seen a doku about it) But it still is very rare. But modeling is probably this way or the other an enslavement business. :-/

    i get that a lot too. It's embarassing. When i was younger i would have killed to have heard that as much as i do now, but i don't like. I would never want to you said i don't want to be the cause of turning society into mindless image obsessed assholes. Excellent choice. There are more fulfilling options out there for us.

    I was a cheerleader for a week... and that was too close for comfort. Guess thats why I quit after a week, eh? I wasn't comfortable being held up as a sterotypical "beauty" for the rest of the school to look at.

    But, if you want to do it, then do it. Everyone wants different things, and we don't know you well enough (or at all) to tell you what you should and shouldn't do.

    its a fickle business..& harmful both to those who work in it & society in general..
    i have a freind whos mother owns a modeling agency & her house was always ful of models, & because of that she became anorexic, & even at 68 pounds she felt fat & worthless.. the whole industry is evil as far as i'm concerned.

    Alot of people mistake attractiveness for eligibilty to be a model. My sister is practically flawless, but she has some scars on her forhead from when a bookshelf fell on her when she was little, and so she's ineligible. Also, some of the best looking people I know are horrible-looking in photographs. I would look at if you look better in photographs/video first.

    If you don't want to be a model, don't. Its very body-consious work and you can't gain weight or wrinkle as you age.

    If you do it- be a positive inspiration, and don't model fur or clothing made from sweatshops/slave labor.

    i think modelling would be one of the most unrewarding and depressing careers that one could possibly undertake.

    yea no kidding... but I guess it's different for different people... I would never be one... but for some people it might be the most rewarding or exciting careers that one could undertake...
