Okay, if you could have any talent, any skill, any ability, and be able to accomplish anything you wanted, what would you do? Who would you be?

Well, since I ALWAYS put something up...I decided that I'd continue my trend. :) This question is easy for me to answer. I would be...famous. Simple as that. The lifestyle I want to lead is that of the rich and famous. I know famous people always say it's not all glitz and glamour...but I think I could put up with that much better than the life of a nobody. I mean...to have people look up to me...to want to have my haircut, or my clothes, or my boyfriend (ooh...boyfriend...), or my LIFE...that would just be the coolest thing! I would want to start out as a Broadway actress (which is actually feasible, maybe...), become a star, and then be discovered by some recording company and be a popular artist...get the designers fighting to get me to wear one of their outfits to the Grammys...get the TV and radio stations fighting to get interviews with me...have people scream my name as I walk down the street...and then I could live the lifestyle of my dream. Not having to worry that I can't find clothes that I would wear on a regular basis, clothes that fit my personal style, and that I can afford. Not having to worry about whether my makeup is the right color for me and whether I can afford some that is. Not having to worry where my paychecks are coming from and whether they'd let me fly home to see my family. Not having to sit at home idly on a Friday night wondering why nobody wants to see me...unless, of course, that's what I feel like doing. And most of all...not having to worry about being forgotten after I die. I mean...it's the life I've wanted since I was a little girl. And I could throw big fancy black-tie wine-tasting parties, casual pool-side parties, or big ravers...and know they'd be regarded as cool. And as for the negative press...there's no way that everybody's going to like you. I know that. But as long as I am who I know I am...that's all that matters. And as for the "rock star" problems, such as drinking, drugs, promiscuous sex...that's not who I am! And on top of that, I'd never consent to wear red latex or have my voice pitch altered cuz I couldn't sing on key or do stripteases on stage...not my style. Think Tori Amos. Think Sarah McLachlan. They are the real musical goddesses...and one of these days I would love to be among them. That's my dream life.

I would just take the essay I had to write on this subject from back in h.s. and paste it in here, but I think I'll improvise something here at 1:30 a.m. :/ If anything, I would like to be a professional artist. Not one of those sitting-in-the-enclosed-patio-painting-flowers artists, but a wild tattoo artist (not just the designs, the actual needlework). I'd want to ride a big ol' Harley all around the nation and basically be a journeyman or something. It's unrealistic as hell, but for me, I would want a big bike, the open road, and a way to make some money.
As it is, I guess I'll stay here for a while, drawing on paper as opposed to flesh, and bathing myself in the white light of the monitor.
