Another tale from Ry's past that I wanna share with you lovely kawaii folks, this story goes back to kindergarten in Hong Kong, a very baby Ry. Thinking back at it now, it seems a little strange? It also felt wrong? But mostly confusing, I still don't exactly get why the teacher made us do this. Anyway here goes. This is a photo of me when I was little, I was merely just an innocent child with an innocent mind (As opposed to be evil psychotic person I am today). WELL, I was in Kindergarten class with a teacher and a few other classmates and we were playing a game where one person has to dress up as the Hare and the other person has to dress
Found my Japanese friend missing for 10 years
Ok, Ryght, so, around 10 years ago I had a Japanese friend back in High School. He was over as an exchange student for a few months. When he arRyved, we anime lovers kinda heard the news and wanted to check him out.. cos me and my friends were kinda obsessed with Japanese stuff. Somtimes we would even speak gibberish Japanese to be more cool. So anyway I heard about this Japanese fella called Tomoo, he was a year below us and I really wanted to meet him but had no idea how... I have never made friends with a Japanese person before and was kinda nervous, so I just kinda brushed it off. Then one day.. my friend Ming somehow made friends with hi

Long story short, I'm losing The Great Loftspace.

The loftspace is the photography room that exists in my parents house, and I have moved out to live in Vancouver.
Now, that house is being sold, and so it is the end of the lovely grey loft with the big natural light windows.

But that's not the end of my as an artist or photographer, it's just a time of growth and change
I've spent six months in the city intensely studying acting, and working towards becoming a working actor and model.
I've made lots of new friends in the city, and it's really opened up new doors for me.
As much as I love the country, there is just not a strong enough arts community to thrive here.

And I want to say, that, while I've been quiet for a long, long time, I have struggled with illness, both the physical illness of my mother and my own depression and anxiety about not being good enough. But this spring feels different. It feels happy. I feel like my joy and creativity have returned. I want to draw, and paint and photograph again. This feels like a time of great healing and growth for me.

I suppose now is the best time to finally tell you guys my real name. I'm Laura Auffray.
Wow. That was easier than I thought. Yep, I have a name, and now I'm trying to get it out.

If you'd like, you can check out my new facebook page
www.facebook.com/lauraauffraya…

And if you view my demo real, you even get to hear my real voice ^^

Moving ahead, I'm really not sure what the future holds for me, but I'm looking forward to it. It feels like things might just turn out ok.

Laura is a lovely name :)  Best wishes as you pursue an acting and modeling career.  You have already demonstrated with your stock photos an ability to capture movement and portray emotion well - it shouldn't be hard to translate those skills to these other fields.

Long time I know your name is Laura, because I saw that on a photo-essay of you, in somewhere in internet. You have a nice name.
I just watched your demo video; you're great.
I wish you the very best of luck.

Life is an ongoing journey. ^^ From what I've experienced, I've learned that you can let the bad stuff crush you, or you can let it inspire you to make things better. )

That is really, really brave of you to share your real name with us!  ... though of course we all see your point too, getting your name out there is a good thing if one is beginning a career as an actor and model I imagine :)  ... I'm sure there's a lot of people who will agree with me when I say between your gallery (both here on DA and on facebook) and your demo reel that you have plenty of talent and we're all very confident that you will succeed and do well (i.e. of course it's normal to feel some anxiety about "not being good enough" as you mentioned above when starting out in this sort of field .... unless one is some sort of self-obsessed prima donna that is and I think people who have followed your DA journals over the years know you well enough to know that is definitely not you!  ;)  ... but I think you're going to find that a lot of people here on DA will be of a similar viewpoint -that you're going to do quite well !  :)  ) ..

Happy you are becoming an actor and/or model...... Based on your photos on DA, I believe you could be an excel actor/model  :dance:

BTW, I do not know if you have seen this site for models - link below. It is like DA of artists but it is an international site for models, photographers, makeup artist, actors, etc. You can input your portfolio and could be contacted for jobs.
