When I was in elementary school I wanted to be famous – although I had no idea what I wanted to be famous for. I once wrote myself fan letters then placed them in self-addressed envelopes with used stamps glued to the front. Then I showed them to my friends. When asked why I received the fan mail I was stumped. I can’t remember how that played out exactly. Nowadays everyone can be famous – or infamous – now that technological advances have produced the internet, blogging, and social media. Although it also means that sometimes people also end up being famous for things they’d rather not be known for. If you were famous, what would you like to be famous for?
Another side of me that you don’t see through a computer screen: I bite my nails when I’m stressed and chew my hair when really focusing on a project like writing out my blog articles. Last week when I got caught in a flash flood I bit my nails down to nubs. Nail polish is a lost cause on me.
