I really do try not to revel in discontent. I accept who I am, I accept the circumstances I’m in, I accept the blessings God has given me, and even the hardships I accept. But I’m only human, and humans aren’t infallible. To be someone else for a day would mean a release from the everyday humdrum of my life.
So… who would I choose? Well, that’s easy. I want to be someone famous. However, here comes the not-quite-easy part: which famous person do I want to be for a day? The first people who came to mind were:
- Emma Watson (who plays Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie franchise) because she gets to be a wonderful actress and model, hang out with Daniel Radcliffe and still she’s smart enough to be accepted to Brown University.
- Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan from the Twilight Saga) because, unlike other girls, she has a devil-may-care attitude with how she looks. She’s like a rocker inspiration for me.
- Dakota Fanning, just in principle because she’s roughly my age and already successful.
It’s very difficult to choose, I know. And quite selfish, actually. I know it’s just going to be for a day and everything, but there’s a selfish part of me that wants more. All those people I’ve listed above were famous and successful from a very young age. I see a good role model in Emma, a good fashion guru in Kristen, and I see what I could’ve been in another universe (I doubt it, but humor me) in Dakota.
Yes, I want to be successful someday, but wouldn’t it have been better if I come to that myself? Just me and plain ol’ elbow grease.
So in conclusion, if given the chance to be someone else for a day, I’d like to be myself. Albeit, an older, richer, more well-known and successful version of myself.
