After wallowing in self pity yesterday, I picked myself up and decided to figure out how I can make some money. And after following up on a few leads from last week, I found a job! It pays 12 dollars an hour...
I'm selling my body.
Noooo... I'm not planning on walkin' the mean streets of Greensboro! I'm selling my body to the art depart.ment at UN.CG. They need models for Life Drawing classes. Only here's the catch. It's nude modeling.
Yes, you read that correctly. I am going to be sitting/posing for 3 hours straight in a classroom twice a week so that 20 college kids can stare at my naked body and draw it.
EEK! Am I nervous? Yeah... but I've never had a problem being naked before. I've sat for Em before, so that she could do life drawing homework. When hanging out with my roomies, I usually just wear shorts and a sports bra. I'm more nervous about there being someone in the class who knows me! Or that I won't be able to hold still for 20 minutes (that's how long you have to hold a pose).
I won't start until the middle of the semester, because they like to have different models/different body types for the students to draw. But... it's definitely going to be an adventure!
