What I realize is that for most models, lack of comfort is an issue but I may be a bit too comfortable and if I'm not conscious of the mechanics of my body then my BAD habits will kick in. We're so often told not to over think it while we're performing, but until I know how to alter those mechanics permanently -- then I'll have to think about body positioning right on the catwalk in the heat of the moment. It's a challenge to change something you've been doing your entire life.

But I'm up to the task. I came here to learn and to improve and that's what I'm going to do. This week I was placed in the mediocre category and I didn't like it at all. Mediocrity is not an option for me. I cant wait for next week to begin so the panel will see me fulfilling my potential.

Regardless, this week still was a blast. We got to be in the audience at several other fashion shows which I used to study the models. It was refreshing to see how imperfect many of there walks were, I felt like running up on stage with them. I loved watching those shows, but I would much rather be a performer than a spectator. It puts things in perspective. To view them at a different angle.
