Not Famous

When I was little, and even sometimes now, I wanted (and still sometimes want) to be famous. I always would like to be known as this famous writer, or someone inspiring to people my age.

And then I look at my family.

My mom isn't famous, but she's one of the most important people in my life, and my grandma is the nicest person you'll ever meet. My brother is hilarious, and my dad is artistic. People before me worked hard for their food, and went through things I'd never imagine going through myself. I always catch myself looking at their pictures and just being grateful for who they are, and who my family is.

Sometimes, not being famous can be a good thing. Isn't it so scary, and so creepy, that there are so many amazing people out there that nobody knows about? I like to call this The Perks of Being Not Famous. Because they are perks. Most of you guys' (I think that's not gramatically correct. Then again, who cares?) blogs that I read are so interesting, and I really wonder why you're not famous.

All in all, it's a mixed emotion, because I'd love to be known by the world as someone influential. It's like the song Beverly Hills, because he says he wants to be famous, but deep down, he knows he doesn't belong with the celebreties. I don't want to be a celebrety, exactly, just a writer. Someone who tells stories.

...Do you want to be famous?


  1. I love this post; I am happy to see you with such beautiful family. I wouldn't know much about family, but being around my friend's family and being welcomed is the best feeling ever.
    I've thought of this a few times in my life, if i wanted to be famous. I did but I was younger back then. I thought It'd be cool to be Famous like Mily Cyrus and such.. I love her though.
    I'm on you with that, I want to be an influentual person. I want to make films that will touch everyone on this earth,,.
    Oprah Winfrey, She is my role model and halfly created the positive side of me.

  2. if i was famous, i would be one of them who gives back. i'd try as hard as i could to give some money to missionaries and homeless people and things like that. but i don't think i will be. so i'll just enjoy my life, and watch the stars play...

  3. * The17 YearOldNaive *- finally! someone who understands what it feels like to need to make an impact :)
    and i'm sorry that you don't really have family to look on, but at least you have close friends that care about you.
    Oprah is definetly inspiring! she just does so much, i don't know how she has time for herself :D you know what i mean?

    ↘Cassidy↙- i want to give to charities if i can when i grow up, too. it always seems like it's so selfish NOT to give to charity when you can, you know? and also, i think you'll leave an impression on our generation. just look at your followers. but it's always nice to enjoy life, too, right? sometimes, i think, the working class does more than the celebs do.

  4. I don't exactly want to be famous... I want to change somebody, to impact and inspire them. Even if it's just one person. I want to be a known writer, but not chased by papparazzi. Honestly, I just want to feel important, like I wasnt here for nothing.

  5. I don't know if I want to be famous I just want to make an impact or change someone's life. I want to be that person that makes someone's day a little bit easier for them or happier for them. I just really want to be that person.
