This is horrible, horrible news I have just received.
Someone commented on my blog yesterday saying:
"If you are selected for ANTM, they'll make you take down all of your videos, blog posts, and internet stuff. There was a girl who was pretty active on flickr and other sites a few seasons ago, and they made her take down everything."
Can anyone verify if this is true or not? Because if it is true, that's a huge dealbreaker for me. I mean, if on the crazy, bizarre off chance I won, that would be GREAT, but it's not really worth it for me to risk everything I've built here on YouTube and with my blog for the minute chance I might become America's Next Top Model. Because what if I lost? Then I'd be sad, AND I wouldn't have my blog or my channel anymore. Not. Worth. It.
So anyway, that's a little disappointing, because I had literally already talked my friend Liz into driving down to Portland with me for the open call. I did read through the eligibility form yesterday, and didn't see anything about not being able to have an online presence, but I guess they could easily just pick me for the show and then say "okay, take everything down."
That would make me one sad Kristina.
Today is extreme studying day, for me. I finished my Human Sexuality class completely yesterday (got my test back already and passed! Yay!) and now I just have to study for my Lit class (it's an open-note essay test so today involves just writing down literally everything I can find that may help me) and finishing up my research paper. The paper, as I mentioned before, is on side shows, and I have already written the historical part, now I am at the fun part where I get to compare and contrast difference instances of carnival and side show usage in pop culture, such as in the TV show "Heroes", the kids book series "A Series of Unfortunate Events" (The Carnivorous Carnival), and references on Britney Spears' album "Circus", to name a few. So it's a reasonably fun paper, it's just time consuming and a lot of pages to get through.
I am sick of being a finals-studying-recluse. I am so, so excited for this Spring Break. Mostly because Luke is coming up to visit for a nice long stretch of time and he's never really gotten to experience my city with me, but also because my last day at my job is on Thursday, so I'm getting to start my "me" time immediately after. Couldn't be happier. Also, Wednesday, which is also the last day of Finals, is also St. Patrick's Day. I live in a college town. There is FUN TO BE HAD.
But first, this paper.
