New Career?

Women are are supposed to be soft and dainty. I understand that and that's fine. As a child up to my high school years, I was never a skinny girl. Nothing dainty about me. I tried a few sports in high school. Softball and track. Nothing really caught my attention. I was too afraid to play volleyball because of the fear of the ball hitting me right in the face. Didn't want to play basketball because I didn't think I would be good enough and I would be ready to fight if someone stole the ball while I dribbled it down the court. My girly side didn't want to sweat and my tomboy side really wanted to try some type of sport.

Over the years, I have gained a strong love for the game of football. I never quite understood the game until I actually paid attention. I would start an argument if I said Football requires way more skill than basketball. It's true though. hahaha... After watching the game and attending them, I realized that it wouldn't hurt for a woman to play. I never knew that Women's Professional Football existed until I watched: I want to Work for Diddy. I always thought women played "flag football" or something. During the winter season I wrecked my brain on if I would really play and where these women's teams existed. I didn't research it but while I didn't research, my cousin Daneice surprised the family with some interesting news. SHE GOT DRAFTED for the women's pro football team Cleveland Fusion. So now that I know it really does exist, and tryouts are soon-- I will be conditioning and training to play football. Why not? It won't hurt to try if I don't make it. I'll just know what mistakes I made so that I can work on them for next year. Im not saying that I'll stop modeling but my career is at a standstill because of conflict of interest with a lot of things. I can't control everything and I'm just TIRED. I've been exposed and beautifully destroyed. I love art and everything about it, but I just feel like I need the right people behind me-- and I don't have that right now. So I am going to try something new for a bit and see where it takes me.

Without risk there will be no rewards, So take the risk get out there and kick ass and hope it pays off for you. IF not you can say i have tried that and it didn't work out.

I am so not surprised that you are going out for football! I think that it would be a great way for you to use your talents while you work on the modeling. Congrats to you and your cousin!
