Today is kind of a big deal for me so I’m going to keep life concise today in Blogland. This morning I have an interview for a grad school program I recently applied for so I am busy doing my best to look like Elle Woods when she attends Harvard. Picking an outfit that emotes “dedicated, ambitious, intelligent and serious” while still attempting to portray creativity and the femininity of my personal style is a challenge. I have to say it doesn’t help that my curling iron decided to die on me a few days ago leaving my hair sad, limp and volume-less. I foresee a trip to Sephora in my future…any great curling iron recommendations? I need to look like a mermaid, duh.
Just an hour after my interview I’m modeling for my first ever commercial. It’s nothing crazy big; I’m not the new face of Victoria’s Secret unfortunately but it’s a commercial nonetheless. Though I’ve “modeled” as a hobby since I was 16 (and yet I’m still dreadfully awkward such a high percentage of the time) I’ve never done modeling that requires more than standing around looking pretty. I have to move on camera…what?! As silly as it sounds I am totally nervous!
Despite running around Seattle like a freaked out panic attack life is pretty shimmery shiny, isn’t it always for mermaids? I have beautiful friends, a wonderful new boyfriend (yes, boyfriend), cherry blossoms are everywhere and I am beginning to see my future take form (because I’m building it). I’m so bad at combatting negativity so when I saw the little Mermaid image on Pinterest I had to archive it for my own benefit. We are gorgeous, smart, kind mermaids with loads of power and potential. We can empower ourselves by channeling energy from the positive aspects of our lives and remaining driven. The last thing a mermaid ever (EVER) needs is a little negative shrimp dragging her down.
Keep swimming & mostly keep sparkling! Let me know what you’re doing this weekend my Mermaid Princesses!
