Ceci n'est pas une personne.

(no subject)

First, let me just say, I am not trying to put anyone on the spot. The two people I'm going to mention, I have the utmost respect for, and both seem like the would be a lot of fun to hang out with IRL.

There are a couple people on my list who have similar jobs. Both are models. But this post isn't really about the job, but just how they talk about their jobs.

While I am positive they both love their work, it's interesting how one tends to write about the fun aspect of the job and the other the hard work involved.

The first posts the great places she visits and the new outfits she gets and yummy food. Basically all about the fun parts of the job.

The other tends to write about going to the gym, and the hard work it takes to be marketable, and the prep works, and meeting people and networking to generate more work.

I thing the both probably go through all the same things in a general sense, and to get a true look at how the field of modeling is, you would need to read both journals.

I just thought it was interesting how two people could have such similar jobs and both of them love their jobs, and yet their commentary are so opposite (not in opinion, just in what they choose to comment on).
