It’s finally here!

Hey y’all,

I am so excited I can’t believe it is really here! It has felt so unreal for so long. I tried out in hopes to become Americas Next Top Model, and starting this Wednesday on The CW I actually get the chance as I made the top 14 girls! I’ve always been a little country girl with big dreams. I see the promos and commercials for ANTM and freak out because I can hardly believe it’s going to be me on TV. I hold my breath until it’s over. I don’t know what I am going to do every week when I watch the show on Wednesday’s – I don’t believe I can hold my breath that long! My dad is even worse than me though. I hate going out with him because he gets so excited and he wants to tell everyone and that includes strangers! It’s embarrassing when he brags all the time, I believe he’s the world proudest dad. I can’t wait to watch ANTM with my family on and I want to thank everyone who has supported me so far and everyone who will read my blog weekly! Although it will be a bit of a challenge since I am dyslexic, I will have weekly blogs posted here every Thursday with my thoughts on the previous night’s episode and photo shoot, challenge and judges panel with my thoughts hearing some of the comments about me that I am hearing for the first time.

I believe watching America’s Next Top Model will be very emotional for me. I know there will be a lot of “cat-iness” behind each other’s back that will be hard to watch. It will obviously be so personal for me, so everything will be all that more emotional – more sad, more funny. So we will see how things go!

Yesterday I went to The CW Kentucky station and had an interview with anchors Bill and Stacy. It actually wasn’t as stressful as I thought it would be. Everyone was really nice and excited. I felt like someone told me a big secret getting to see all the behind the scenes camera work at the studio for the interview. I hope I did well enough on the interview, I worried because I get so nervous I just pray to get words out let alone the right words to form a sentence. I also got to meet our state Governor yesterday, and I couldn’t believe our governor would have been so laid back and nice – just like an everyday person. It was quite the exciting day for me, I felt I did so much already and it wasn’t even 1:00 pm! Once again my dad was uncontrollable about bragging and taking pictures of me. Thanks dad for embarrassing me in front of the Governor. Lol

Today is a big day for me, as tonight at 8pm will be the first time I will see myself on TV as a part of America’s Next Top Model. I don’t have a TV at my place so I have to go to my dads, but we are having a viewing party tonight at the Stanford Country Club since it is also my little brother’s birthday. So shhhh, don’t tell him the party isn’t for him. Ha! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JERM!!

Leave your comments on what you think of tonight’s premiere episode of America’s Next Top Model, and check back here every Thursday to see my new blog. Talk to you soon!

Love, Laura

  • Bilal:

    Hey Laura, I’m writing from Toronto, Canada. I watched yesterdays episode for the first time since… cycle 5/6 maybe? I really like the idea of using models 5’7 and under. I feel it’s makes it easier for people to relate to you guys. Just wanted to let you know you did a great job and your first pic rocked! I have some questions :) now that you’ve gone through this whole experience, when you watch the episodes on TV do all the “old” emotions you felt start to resurface and if they do is it with the same intensity, or are you able to step back with an “observer’s” eye… kinda like on a dvd commentary? Do you still talk to any of the other girls on the show? Best of luck this season and I’ll be cheering for ya, cheers!

  • Elaine:
