A Famous Personality

The other day I got a really sweet and thoughtful message from my younger brother and what he said really stuck with me. He wanted to tell me how creative I am with film and photography and also acting and comedy. “I could definitely see you being a famous personality or doing something big with film in your life,” he wrote. I was very surprised to find out that he thought that about me, but nonetheless I was incredibly flattered. In my response I basically tried to offer up any excuse I could muster about why I don’t make YouTube videos the same way anymore and how I wouldn’t want to be famous anyway.

When I was a little girl I would memorize the lyrics to all of my favorite pop songs, choreographing routines in my bedroom while clutching the spiky barrel of my hairbrush. Back then I totally thought I was destined for stardom, and nothing could stop me. I even was a part of the Spark Girls (formerly known as the Starfruit Girls), a three-piece girl group consisting of myself and two of my bestest friends. We would often perform before my dad’s gigs at the local hardware store. I don’t know when I abandoned the idea of becoming a famous singer, but it must have happened somewhere in high school.

I would love to do more acting and singing and filmmaking, but that’s not to say that I am exceptionally talented at any of them. I’ve always been very well-rounded when it comes to creative endeavors and when I’m really into something I make it my number one priority. I don’t know if I will ever get back into any of those hobbies the way that I used to, although if the opportunity presented itself in a convenient and fun way then I might have to take up the offer.

Anyway, just thought I’d give my two cents on the matter! I still think it was very kind of my brother to send me that message. Hopefully I’ll do something fun and creative in the future so he can be impressed, haha!
