Robin Buss is a B&M Model in Toronto.
Greetings to all in this New Year! I hope your
Holidays were wonderful, and that 2007 holds all the
delights of the Universe. I am still alive and well,
smiling while writing to you from my new MacBook
December has left like the last leaf clinging to the
branch, and I am thankful for its going!
Like the bottom of a sand timer, I could feel the
remaining few grains of time sliding out before the
New Year. I anticipated 2007, asking myself: will I
make it to the next stage of my career? Will I
continue to evolve? Will my path be marked with
opportunities or challenges? So many questions buzzing
around my head. But I have learnt from experience that
a challenge is an opportunity in disguise to go
further than you would have ever imagined possible.
Now that we have made the pass, we are through the
darkest night of the year and out into the open sea of
'07, I feel a new joy in the pursuit of life. I am
pleased with my dedication to the gym, especially
after the Holidays. I believe firmly in celebrating
with gusto, so I ate and drank and made merry!
Now it is time to atone. A time to demonstrate my
strength and will. I am hungry for opportunity, and
travel, and eager to better myself. I feel great,
balancing 5 days a week of rigorous exercise, castings
and house cleaning with family fondue on Saturday and
a day of rest and reflection on Sunday.
For me, January is a time to set up the track I want
to follow for the rest of the year. A track I hope and
believe will take me to the next wonderful (and
challenging!) stage of my experience as model and a
I am ready to grow and learn from the obstacles of
life, as I work through them, and mold them into the
opportunities of my dreams.
Happy New Year!
