Taking Chances: Supermodel work!

Hey there!  I have to tell you about my latest obsession.  I entered a contest!  If you’ve followed me, @curvesandcake on twitter,  you already know Addition Elle is running their “I love My Genes” campaign.  I’ve never entered a contest before so I had no idea how OCD I would get about checking to see how many votes I had or how many votes the competition had.  In the last week, I haven’t really done much besides solicit votes and watch the numbers grow.  Click the link below if you would like to support me.

Things I’ve learned since entering this contest.   Contests are serious business and people can get really nasty when they feel threatened.  I’ve seen some verbal throw downs on some of the pages that is not only embarrassing but childish for this 18+ set.  I’ve also learned that taking chances is kinda fun.  I’m not sure why I’ve shied away from these things.  It’s  exciting to see who is really rooting for you and how much you can collectively make the numbers move.

So, what’s my end game? That was my Olivia Pope (Scandal) reference for those who don’t watch.  My end game is to put myself out there.  It would be great to win the whole thing, but even if I don’t I know I’ll still feel like I did.  Everyone that has votes so far has been amazingly supportive and a great boost to my ego, plus I’ve had fun doing something I never thought I would. This contest is another check to my bucket list!  Win or lose I’m still taking a chance and moving forward.  Maybe that trip to the Italian countryside should be next?  In the meantime vote for me!
