I apologize for not writing as regularly and as frequently lately but I’ve been fervently networking with model agencies and fashion designers for the disabled trying to find some modeling work. I feel it would help to boost my wounded psyche from a long, lonely and anxiety ridden year.
I found a pretty cool website while looking through my Roll Models profile and competition. It’s called model mayhem and I submitted my profile and portfolio last night. It’s run by a woman who may have a disability and I say this with skepticism only because she makes it a point NOT to ask questions about her disability, why would she sit in a wheelchair if she had a choice? I’m thinking she may have MS but I certainly can’t know for sure only guess and she probably get’s off on that.
I also wrote some long overdue emails, printed some new stim placement pics, caught up on my contacts and friends on facebook and tried to update and organize my portfolio something that I need to finish soon because my computer is 97 percent full.
I also had some trouble with the state agency that pays my employees. One of them, Kristi, didn’t get paid last period due to a mistake made by the agency but they still didn’t want to make it right. Eric and I both called and sent emails for days until it was straightened out. She still received her pay a week late and missed two days of work because she wouldn’t take an advance from me. Why? I simply don’t know. I don’t think Kristi will ever be my friend as hard as I’ve tried I get the feeling she just doesn’t like me all that much. I’ve given up trying to get close to her and I feel bad about it but I suppose not everyone is going to like me, that’s just the way of the world.
