Day 17 in "30 Days of Blogging"

Day 17: someone you want to switch lives with for one day and why

I debated long and hard about this one. So much so that I got another day behind. Oh shoot!

Seriously, I think my most truthful answer would be:

First Year University Student

I know, that is maybe the dumbest thing you've ever seen. Why wouldn't I choose someone famous, or fabulously rich, or extremely talented?

I've been thinking about it a lot this week for some reason (a talk with Laura, a visit to TWU) and I just loved that time. The time where I was at the start of it all. There wasn't really career pressure yet, because you were only 18. You had so many choices for classes, and so many yet to take. Some days you didn't wake up until 10 AM. Then when I did wake up, I would read novels and poetry, and then go discuss it in a group.

I know, a highly romanticized portrait of university life - but that really was my day sometimes. And then other days I had 4 papers due, and had to stay up until 4 am to finish them. So I realize that not every day in the life of a freshman would be magical, but I am just saying:

some days truly were.

Probably what I'd pick is a fabulously rich and extremely talented first year university student - think about it. You would have it all.
