From time to time, I like to think about what it’d be like if I was a totally different girl. I don’t mean to complain; I truly love my life but sometimes, I just can’t help but think what if I was…


A roller derby girl. To me, these girls are so freaking hardcore. They just seem like the coolest, most badass girls ever, and secretly, I’d like to be more like them. I’ve honestly thought about checking out a practice or something, but let’s be honest: I’m too much of a baby. I have never broken a bone, or even bled that much. Also, not that into inflicting injury on others.


A sorority girl! In case it’s not obvious, I’m not exactly the sorority type, though I’ve had several good friends participate. Just not my deal. Still, since I didn’t do the whole go away to college thing, sometimes I long for that experience of going away and being a hot, fun, party girl…


A ballerina. I danced for a long time as a kid, and sometimes I wish I’d pursued it for longer. I think professional dancers are such incredibly disciplined athletes. I LOVE the Nutcracker and have always been totally infatuated with it, and fantasized about playing Clara for a long time…sadly, it will never happen, but a girl can dream, right?


Finally, the J. Crew girl. In my mind, this preppy, perfect girl is always put together. She never loses her keys. She never has a hair out of place or is grumpy or overeats or forgets to go to the gym. Of all of them, this is the girl I aspire to be like the most.

Sadly, it’s unlikely I’ll ever be any of the above…so for now, I’ll settle for being me.

    I’m with you on the ballerina thing. When I was little, I always envisioned myself going to Juilliard for ballet, then dancing with ABC. I wish I had never gotten out of ballet as a kid…perhaps in addition to not having such a large arse, I’d be a world famous prima ballerina!
