Truth be told—I wanted to be an actor. But no matter how many acting classes my parents paid for, I kept getting told the same thing: Not believable.
Sometimes I feel bad about the stances I take on certain issues, but if you want your soundbite to be on the news, you can’t just agree with everyone else or say something rational—you need shock and awe!
I often wonder if people realize how little power I actually have to do things, or how little effort I put into doing the things that I can do.
I use most of my salary to pay different media sources to say good things about me and make my life seem down-to-earth, instead of joyously extravagant. Image is everything.
Pro tip for you future senators: you don’t need to do great things if you can pay someone to say you already did great things.
