Famous For Nothing

I remember that back in the days, when some kids were asked what they wanted to be when they grew up, they would say rich and famous. The thing about that answer is, that being an extremely shy person my entire life, I could never understand how so many people just wanted to be famous. My thing is, that I’ve never liked being the center of attention or even getting any attention at all. Even in school, I remember sitting in the back of the classroom, just so the teachers wouldn’t call on me. I recall one of my teachers, telling my mother, that I was a very intelligent student, but that even if I knew the answer to a question, I would never raise my hand. Back then, what nobody knew, including myself was, that I suffered from social anxiety disorder.

Another thing that has been baffling me for many, many, many years now is, how so many young people now a days, just want to be famous for being famous. To be honest with you, I don’t have a problem with someone becoming rich and famous either because the person had a talent like Michael Jackson did or because the person contributed something positive to humanity one way or the other, like Bill Gates did. But for someone to want to be rich and famous for no reason? Is something that I will never fucking understand. I’ve always told family and friends, that if I ever become a millionaire, by winning the lottery, some people will see me as a really strange millionaire, because I would continue to be the same person that I am today, because I wouldn’t go around getting in trouble by doing dumb ass shit in public in order to get attention, wearing expensive clothes, jewelry, driving expensive cars and throwing money on people’s face. In other words, I would keep my shit on the lowdown and real.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
