Veve gives me something to look forward to every week. I love being a part of the community. I love seeing how creative you guys are with your showrooms. But at the same time, it makes me incredibly sad. It reminds me of my long list of short-comings.
I’m excited about what could possibly happen this weekend, with Doctor Strange and Star Wars being strong possibilities. I’m no whale. I feel as though I have a lot of power in the palm of my hand, and I only have 101 gems at the time of this entry. You may have seen my flossing my rare Pilis on Twitter, but I don’t have any Todds or Season 1 Golden Moments. No Aston Martins or Superman, either.
Being a part of VeVe is currently a bitter-sweet, double edged sword. My real-life circumstances have me unable to afford an Ultra Rare Pili-something many other members of the community would be able to buy in their sleep. I’m at a point in my life where something of so little expense should be a walk in the park-but for me, even thinking of buying the UR Pili would bring about a financial apocalypse. I’m a month away from another birthday, and can’t afford to invest $150-$160 into an NFT. And I’m no teenager.
’But you could sell stuff’, you say. I could, but I don’t have anyone to sell. I’m valiantly holding on my three Rare Pilis, my Common Black Panther and everyone else because they’re all long-term holds and sleepers. Plus I love them all. I only have one Black Panther and my Rare Pilis aren’t going anywhere because he’s Best Boy.
Why am I sharing this with you guys? It’s the truth. I’m a goldfish that can’t afford a $150 UR collectible, and that makes me very sad. At the same time, I share this in the hopes of letting my fellow goldfish you aren’t alone. If you have a very small VeVe budget, if you only have one to two collectibles, and feel very small in the world of VeVe, I hope this post brings you some sort of hope. I’m nowhere near being a whale-sometimes I feel like I’m not even a goldfish. I’m more of a guppy.
As our VeVe adventures continue, I just want you to know you’re not alone in being a tiny fish.
