The Certified Wannabe’s

"She walks with her high heels on and her wonderbra too. You hate her but at the same time, you wanna be her."

Hi, Welcome to the City of Wannabe’s!

Created by our own figment of imagination and build with the latest fashion. This is our own world, our own escape and a hide-out to the world – the world where nobody dares to go and enter this hidden solitude. This is the place where we secretly share the innermost beauty of life, wherein fantasy became a reality.


They’re just a bunch of ordinary girls living in an ordinary world. But making things extraordinary, is their cup of tea. And they call themselves, "The Certified Wannabe’s".


Making rounds but not making a sound
These wannabe’s are not meant to be found!
Faking things but not faking flings
These wannabe’s are not ending!


"The Certified Wannabe's"

The Wannabe Writers

They have the edge on words, may it be on letter or poem. They have a lot of fun writing ‘big hit’ song lyrics and share it with a scented stationeries. Always wanted to write an nth line paragraph on essays exam but for some reasons, they always were flunking it!

Nobody knows why they are so into pink and violet pens but one thing is for sure – they thought they were born as writers!

The Wannabe Princesses

They used to wear different kinds of hats and pretend they were tiaras. Walking down the aisles is one of their great talents, shovelling people around on their way. They dressed in the latest fashion of t-shirt and jeans and pretends they were wearing ball gown dresses!

Window shopping is one of their favourite hobbies although they were too timid to buy one! Just as they always wanted somebody to glance on their way.

The Wannabe Actresses

If lying is a skill, they would be hailed as a genius. Staying late at night, going to parties and sleepovers? They wanted to be discovered! They talked in English and laughed at their own grammars.

They thought that Britney, Shakira or Paris were their past life robbed on them now. “Princess Diaries” is the best movie they’ve ever seen according to their Slum book.

The Wannabe Girl band

Hairbrush as microphones? And sling bags as guitars? Oh who would have ever thought of that huh? Singing so loudly on a soundproof room is one of their best talents. They could make the rain pour down instantly on a hot summer day or a thunder in the midst of a rainbow.

Funny though, they even thought that Ariel maybe stole their voices to create her perfect tone under the sea. But they never lose hope to win a contest for a singing career which I know, impossible, well maybe if an orange tree will have an apple as the fruit!

The Wannabe Emo’s

Heartbroken? Because he dated your worst enemy? Well, they’ve tried to hide it with their thick mascaras and colour their eyebrows midnight black! Hairstyles gone from perfect normal to perfect sideways, hiding one eye like a pirate captain.

Tinting their nails, with a black tone and using stickers and silver dusts to decorate the t-shirts and bags. Who would have guessed? They are just trying to be lamenting to a thing that doesn’t exists!

Stylish and Glamorous

The Wannabe Athletes

Gym is the last place you’ll look for them when they have gone missing. They don’t even know what a weight lift means or even a jumping rope. They’re all not fat but not that skinny. But sports fest is their favourite affair at school.

They are so good in signing up for all kinds of outdoor activities: basketball, badminton, softball and even athletics events like javelin and discus throwing, longest jump and 100 meter sprints. And for the record, they don’t even win...

Oh okay; they won sometimes, garnering 3rd places on the games where there are only 3 groups. You could see them sweating and panting every game as if they tried hard for this event. Well, who would want to see the naked truth?

The Wannabe Genius

Who doesn’t love Math? They can draw triangle in perfect precision without using a ruler and solving each equation with such determination. So for the record, what’s that on your lower portion of your desk hiding behind the watchful eye of the teacher?

Is that a paper with an answer? They used to peep on it once in a while when the teacher turns his back to the blackboard. Oh my, that’s my hero hiding in there. Without that, who could pass his ‘impossible’ exams? Who wouldn’t perspire to that, always hearing the tick of the seconds on their watch as they wished the teacher would turn around?

As they always quote, “Genius is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration”... They learned it from Thomas Edison!

And their most treasured quote?

"Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love."

Don’t blame them for that cheesy line written all over on their books and papers. They are just like you and me, a bunch of anonymous teens that also fall in love with the boy next door.

So thank you for shopping and stopping by at the City of Wannabe’s. Come Again!

Yes Rosaline, when we were teenagers, wo do a lot of things in our life, we enjoy shopping and sleepovers. We love music, guitars and bands. When we get older and more mature, we smile and laugh as we browse our past childhood life.

I have been a one myself, but now it would make me too tired. Now that I have a teenage daughter it has passed on to her. You know, I think it is the natural process of growing up. Saturday Night Live used to be one of my favorite shows on TV, if I try to watch it now? lol, just wake up on the couch..

Well you are certainly not a wannabee writer. This hub took a lot of imagination and personal courage to write. I had my wannabee period where I pictured myself as a great author--settled for being a decent newspaper reporter. Perhaps all of our wannabee dreams tell us a little bit about ourselves and help us grow into the person we can really be.

Great Hub, voted up, interesting and awesome.

Have a good day.

Fantasy can be a healthy escape and sometimes this is where we as writers get our material.I myself still love to sit on the dock of our lake( hanging my bare feet in the water) and eat popscicles.Great hub,keep'em coming !

@michele, yes i also think that it is natural for teenagers to feel and see. i can see changes on my sister too now that she's a teen. I also think that it is finding our own direction and the way we see ourselves in the future as what

@Larry and @kj force said.

ps:@larry, thank you so much for believing in my writings. I hope you pursue your writing career and be a great author.

@kj force here has already published her book, (congrats again). anyway, i love to picture myself sitting on that dock and eating popsicles with you and talking about anything that will come to our mind, especiallt the times when we are still a 'wannabe" :)

Hi M, I love this hub! First off I started singing the Spice Girls song Wannabe as soon as I saw your title! Thank you for that!:)

Wannabe's are a bit annoying. It's much more simplier to be yourself than try to be someone you aren't...that would be considered a "fake" on my planet (which I think is Earth, most of the time) Voted UP! Awesome! :)
