Hi Sunshines! This is a lightning post where I quickly write about what is going on, how I feel, why I feel feels, etc. I know the emoji above is actually a “high voltage” emoji, but just go with it and imagine it being a lightning bolt that Zeus himself created.
How I Found Out
I woke up a while ago (yes, 11am… late… I know) and did my morning usuals. Said good morning to Mark, went to the bathroom, brushed my teeth. Then, I went to my computer to unload my memory card from last night’s filming.
THEN, I REALIZED I HAVEN’T CHECKED MY YOUTUBE COUNT YET.
And I checked…
And it was still at 8,887 Subscribers (lulz).
Then, a few minutes later, I just left my screen recording on to try and document the changing of the numbers.
Alas! WE. REACHED. 8,888 SUBSCRIBERS.
I screamed “a little”.
I made a quick vlog.
It was amazing.
Why is 8,888 so important?
Seeing that number became my green “go” light to start YouTube again.
Significance of the Number 8
- 888 is lucky. In Chinese and other Asian cultures it means “triple fortune” and “double happiness”.
Wikipedia said it best: “The number eight is considered to be a lucky number in Chinese and other Asian cultures. Eight (八; accounting 捌; pinyin bā) is considered a lucky number in Chinese culture because it sounds like the word meaning to generate wealth (發(T) 发(S); Pinyin: fā).”
- 8 turned side ways is an infinity sign (and I love infinity signs).
- 8 by itself is already lucky.
Someone online explained it like this: “8 is the luckiest number in Chinese culture because 八 sounds like 發 (fa), which means “wealth”, “fortune”, and “prosper” in Chinese.”
WE MADE IT FAM!
I love each and every one of you who have constantly supported me all these years — and especially in the last two year of the #FILAMFANGIRL Series release.
love and light with a very grateful heart
