I always wanted to be a star. When I was a kid, I wanted to be in everything. Not necessarily be "in" like trendy but I want to be always in the loop. Sometimes, I do crazy things just to be noticed.

What is it like being the "star"? Everyone around you knows who you are. Just hearing your name would get reactions like "Ah yeah I know him" or "Yeah, he's from _____, right?". Everyone does know you. BUT, does everyone like you? You may be popular, you maybe a household name. But who is around you? Who holds your hand and says nice things about you even if you're not around?

I just learned one thing, the hard way. It's better to be at the background, laying low and keeping things "steady", rather than be in the spotlight and wither away.
