Following dreams, holidays, etc.
I found out today that I was accepted to a full time contemporary dance program here in NYC. I’m due to start the program for the spring 2014 semester, which is a very short time away.
This is a big deal for me, and marks a huge change of direction and major positive progress in my life. I couldn’t be happier or more excited to have been granted this opportunity.
Thing is, I’m a broke model/performer. I work full time, but I’m paying off other student loans and dealing with New York cost of living - which ain’t cheap. Paying for this is not going to be easy for me - even if I am able to get financial aid, there are other costs (like getting a new dance wardrobe, etc) involved. I don’t have family help here, so this is all coming out of my own (very shallow) pocket.
So, to those people in my life with whom I usually exchange holiday gifts / who have asked me what they can do for me this year -
a.) Please accept that my gift giving will probably be limited to cards/candy/hugs, etc. Saving money during the holidays will be crucial - helping me do that is gift enough!
b.) If you can afford to make a small monetary donation in my direction - (donations of $5 really add up!) - you would be helping me a huge, huge, huge amount, plus I will love you forever. There’s a PayPal donation button on the front page of this blog!
c.) Also, photographers and models in the tri-state area! If you want to book me or know someone who might want to book me, this would be an amazing time to do so! Any money I make modeling is going directly into funding school, and once I enter the program, I’m going to be off the radar / difficult to track down for about a year, if not longer. I’m booking through the end of January right now. Please pass this info on to any interested parties, or send me an email! Hugely appreciated.
Again, a PayPal donation button can be found on the front page of my blog, which is here.
I hope everyone has a wonderful, minimally stressful holiday season full of love.
Thank you, friends!
thebloodybusiness asked: What is the most fun you've ever had, either as an adult or a kid? - C
Fun? Fun. My most fun things have historically been pretty quiet, personal affairs. I can definitely think of one that I just shouldn’t share anything about here.
But there was this one time when I was in this one particular huge room with hundreds of really pretty drunk people and we were all singing this one song together and it was just the greatest. It was all meaningful and shit.
I probably told you this already. ;-)
