    School was on TV and they chose a handful of students to photograph.
    Unfortunately, they chose me

    This was a long time ago though.

    Yep, I was the topic of a couple rumours and gossip in the last couple of months of school. People I had never spoken to were talking about me.

    Luckily no I like to just focus on where I am I don't worry about anything else. I worked in a Currys once they absolutely never shut up about famous people and high society (well paid police officers etc i.e. Corrupt *****es and hoes reverse discriminating) I ****ing had my brain half melted. I suppose that would be close to fame because they tart about on a shop and post lot so of photos on Facebook and hang about in their car parks.

    I don't.

    Got a bit of more than 15 minutes. Been in the local newspapers, won the dux for my school & also somehow got semi famous(not in my opinion but some think so) online and now I got "fangirls" (& fanboys fml), which seem to sometimes spot me irl too...not liking it btw. I'd prefer a lower profile.

    I like to keep a low profile but I was one of those kids who was fairly famous in my school. No idea how. Also appeared in a local newspaper and in a match day programme for my local football team.

    I used to be famous on twitter with over 40k followers and a tweet that went viral getting 60k retweets.. sad thing is they never knew who I was so it doesn’t count I guess… I deleted the account last year so it’s all in the past now

    Never been on the news or TV though

    Why did you delete your account? Asking cause I'm considering doing the same thing, just doesn't feel like the life for me ygm. Low profile sounds so much better

    Twitter is just awful now, I absolutely hate it!! It started going downhill in 2014, I barely used it in 15-16 and then I just decided to let go. I couldn’t make jokes without getting attacked by so many people… even though they knew it was trolling they wasted time hating 🙄 it just became filled with annoying people and too much politics.

    I’m living the quite life on tumblr these days, much better for my soul
