Priscilla from Brazil has now left us after finishing her contract. It's one of the harder parts of modeling, when you make close bonds and then your contract finishes. Then you are thrust again into the world of the unknown. Prika is going to the Philippines, along with Tray and some of our other friends. Models, are like migrant birds, they fly around from place to place. We hope we can meet up again--that's why the fashion shows are so great...you see tons of friends all in the same place that you haven't seen in the longest of time. Here in Asia, it's no different I think...you come together, then you separate, hoping to travel on to the next place and meet up again. Otherwise, it's on to new models, new menus, new ambiance with email, msn, and social networks to bind you together over the internet waves.
You meet a few rare girls, girls I call "The New Kind of Supermodels". Girls who really enjoy life and who embrace all the good things, don't have problems with people, and who are really flexible. I think the greatest thing I will take away from Prika, is the thought that she was very flexible. She didn't really care what we did, just that everyone was happy. We talked about it once--I was explaining that I was more of a leader, that I had clear ideas about what I wanted to do and how i wanted to spend my time. She said that sometimes it lead her to not do the things that she wanted, but that mostly it lead her to discover new things. I cant really sum up our conversation. But it's something for me to chew on and think about. In every way, everyone loves Prika, and that's something to really look at and take with you. I hope to meet her again--On the one hand, I can't wait to get our of here, and on the other hand, I like where I am. Do other people have these problems of push -- pull?
