So today I took a step out of my comfort zone. I went for an audition for a character modelling agency Ugly Models. I figured it'll be good to try something 180 from the norm and if something comes out of it then great, but if not I haven't quit my day job.
I thought I'll play it cool but the truth was I was so nervous. There were people there of all shapes and sizes and boy there were some characters that'll make you think WOW. It was then I began to think what are my qualities and will I make the grade. Anyone that knows me know that I'm a sort of everyman, an average joe you might say. What make me unique to stand out amongst theses guys? But then I thought that being average is not a bad thing to be, after all you need the average Joes. We can't all be special characters because if we all are special then no one is (I know, movie reference). So I waited and eventually my turn came. This was my time to shine and show them who I am. I was placed in front the camera and the guy said talk about yourself. I opened my mouth and talked about my job. I know, I know. In my defence I was nervous but geez. The job is something I do it isn't me. I least I hope so. I was kicking myself for that. I think the camera man realised because he asked if I had ever auditioned before, LOL. It also didn't help that I was immediately up after the knife juggling trans-person. I mean come on, how was I going to top that? :-) After that performance I looked like wallpaper drying.
Hey you know I got to laugh at myself because I gave it a shot and who knows what may happen out of this my personality my shine through my nervousness. For anyone interested check out ugly's website on www.ugly.org
