    hmm.. ok, i could do with a bit of advice if you wouldnt mind. no one will help me! mum says its my choice and all my friends do too.. grrrr. lol

    basically last summer i got spotted by some modelling company in covent garden. this guy took my photo, his colleague gave me the card and said they would ring me.

    I didnt actually think they would, but 2 days later they did. did a bit of research into the company to check it was legit and all ok. then with my mum went along to the company to check them out and they took a few more photos like profiles an stuff.

    really didnt think they'd ring again but they did an i decided (cos i live in birmingham) not to do anything with them cos i was about to do a levels and basically told them i might be free in the summer.

    so today i got a phone call of them asking me if id go back for more shoots as they think they have several possible placements for me.

    shall i go?

    i am going to uni in september (in cornwall) so cant carry anything on after that.. an i did tell them.

    shall i go, even tho in the long run it wont lead to anything (nothing long term at least), and just have a bit of fun??

    If you look anything like your avatar then no .

    Only joking, why not, if you want to then go for it. A bit of money is not a bad thing.

    Yeah, you should definitely do it if you have the chance. And anyways if you do it a couple of times, even in Uni you can still do a bit of modelling part time and earn some extra money. If you don't do it now, you'll probably regret it later.

    Why are you hesitating! If they like you, go! If you are going to uni, the money that you make from modelling can really help you get through uni. Do it, and don't make me have to repeat myself.

    "And plus you get to say that you are a model"

    this alone is worth it!
    and then there's the money you get, probably more than a regular job at some department store!!
