Day Nineteen: Famous

Lately I've started to feel a little bit famous.  I mentioned this to Beat a few days ago and I had wanted to quote our conversation, but I came to find out that my chat logging is turned off so that conversation is lost.  So instead, here is my biased recollection of what exactly was approximately said....

Me: I feel famous

Beat: You should

Me: I don't think I can handle that responsibility


Me: Don't famous people have to know everything?

Beat: Only if you're in U2 or Green Day.  Even then you only have to think you know everything.  

Me: I guess I can do that.  I have lots of fake knowledge. 

I feel famous every time someone new tells me they read my blog.  I mean, they're all people that I know but I just feel this sense of responsibility when I think about who's going to be reading it.  I always think of people who write as being experts or someone who has something unique to say to the world.  It makes me wonder if I really have something new to offer or maybe I have a unique way of saying old things. 

When I was younger, probably early high-school, I wanted to be a writer but this was before I had many experiences or practice so I thought I wasn't very good at it.  I put writing aside as a hobby and began my search for a more practical career.  I guess I felt like I would never have the talent to write things that anyone would pay attention to. 

I realize now that I could be a writer.  All I really need to do is practice.  I've had a lot of interesting experiences in my life.  I've gone through, and continue going through, a journey of self-discovery.  I think that makes me qualified. 

So here's to feeling warm and fuzzy.... and famous.

James denied feeling attracted to Claire. Paparazzi photographers shoot candid photos of celebrities, often without consent. Remember not to make them misunderstand your gestures because it might blind them of what your intensions are. [URL= ]absolving[/URL] Serve good food. Another main feature of catwalks this season is the men's military jacket, or better said, military-inspired jacket.
