Woke up this morning, half naked, no face on, in my leopard print bed sheets, iphone in my hand, boobs sturdy but peeky, scrolling through Facebook and Twitter at around six o clock in the morning…no contact lenses in, negotiating the warmth of my kitten duvet, with the crisp cold of the ‘get ready for work’ routine…and BOOM…Today on Oct 26th 2016 (Wednesday…i think it’s been Wednesday?) I FUCKING WOKE UP TO MY VERIFIED ‘BLUE TICK’ ON TWITTER! YEeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssssEeeeeSSS!
As if! I mean GOD, it makes me so happy and i don’t even mean it from a superficial point of view. DON’T GET ME WRONG, MY EGO HAS BEEN MASSIVE TODAY, I have MADE innocent people refer to me as Chrissie ‘Blue tick’ Wunna and i don’t even care because now it’s official, I am ace and some kind of majestic blogger. Lol.
Anyway back to being humble…
Now, the reason why it means so much to me is because i feel as though i’ve worked really hard for it. I’ve worked REALLY hard for it. And if you haven’t tinkered in entertainment, you won’t get how important it is or how good it feels to get your ‘blue tick.’ Firstly, it’s almost a bit of applause, like recognition for your work. Secondly, it’s a ‘glitter stamp’ of ‘you made it to the next level,’ which kinda suggests your popular because of your work or who you are or have become…and THIRDLY, in the creative world of showbiz…POPULARITY means MONEY! *Wink here.*
Now, i’m a driven girl, i’m ambitious, but i’m fun with it, laid back, an absolute laugh, yet motivated. I’m a good balance of not taking MYSELF seriously, but being passionate about the things i love to do…That part I take seriously… but in the sense of I want to be up there and be the best at what I do, in a glamorous yet credible fashion, and because i’ve put so much energy into it. I’m extremely creative, yet i have a savvy business mind.
When i was young, i had been waiting and trying to be ‘verified’ for ages…months, years…and i’d happily given up on it, because ‘hey ho’ i enjoyed what i was doing anyway…and who needs a ‘blue tick.’
Two weeks ago I met with Abeiku the owner of House of Solo Magazine and he reminded me of a Twitter verification and from that point on I *paused* got my head set ready…and promised myself that in a month…I would wake up to my ‘blue tick’ and be verified.
Two weeks…and i did it. And fuck knows how i did it. But i did it, because i was so determined to do well and worked really hard towards a goal. I love goals.
It was amazing this morning to see my ‘blue tick’ and it was only really absorbed this evening when i as getting changed into my comfies infront of my bedroom mirror at home and i stopped, smiled and burst into some kind of excited HAPPY DANCE. And when i did my happy dance, i did it with every inch of my soul and because i literally and this is honest felt SO GRATEFUL. It made me feel really grateful, that people had been reading my blog or had been watching this or that…Yesterday I asked for excitement…just a burst…TODAY I got it. 🙂
I don’t know why it means a lot to me, but it does. Good work? Now popular? Attention whore? Chance to make dosh? Chance to make a name for myself? Gratification? Praise for my hard work? Just cos i won my own challenge? Who knows?
I’ll tell you who knows…ANY HUMAN THAT WORKED ME WITH TODAY! I’m a sasserilla, i love a bit of banter, a dash of with and a sprinkle of cut throat sarcasm. EVERYONE KNEW that i had my ‘blue tick.’ No grace or humility was displayed AT ALL, i definitely thought that i was the DOGS BEST SET OF BOLOCKS all day, I made everyone mentally bow to my existence and massage my giantly massive ‘still growing’ EGO. Haha.
I had to make sure that my dear friends, now knew that i was a superstar 🙂 and were in a position where in which they may have to now worship me daily. I mean SHIT, my chick friend ‘Firmonnell’ even dressed up for the occasion, in her tiny, legs out.. dress.
Creepy ‘Firmonnell’ is one to keep me grounded, one to never blow smoke up my Oriental arse or to brown nose ‘The Wunna’ (she’s obsessed with me really 😉 ) …YET TODAY…probably about an hour after i greeted her with a ‘why the hell are you here’ as she swung through a doorway….she had a moment, where she swung back on her orange chair…looked at me with cheeky eyes of acknowledgment (we’d been making fun of my new ‘blue tick’ celebrity status all morning) and said,
‘Yeah, (nodded like i was a champion) i’ll admit…it’s pretty impressive. 🙂 ‘
YES IT FUCKING IS! HAHAHAHAHAHA
I’m a champion! I’m great! I have the best blog! I’m Chrissie ‘blue tick’ Wunna…and i’m enjoying my MASSIVE EGO! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Best surprise day ever! My life rocks…and it’s only just beginning. As it seems when you have your ‘blue tick’ people want to work with you IMMEDIATELY. I’ve had three GOOD agencies asked to meet with me today, 2 BIG brands who want to chat to me…and all this celeb love and recognition.
It’s felt great..and like i said it’s only just the beginning. 🙂 I’ve basically proved that with a whole lot of heart, good work, the right moves, determination, a whole bunch of life, a whole guzzle of cocktails, good times, with great people…and passion…followed by a write up, can make YOU wake up one morning, with your very OWN ‘blue tick.’
