In My Next Life, I Want to Be....
« on: November 06, 2012, 05:40:48 am »
[what/who and why]?

...a bear.  I want to eat as much as I want, get as fat as I can, then sleep in all winter during the cold times.  And if I'm pregnant, I don't even have to wake up to give birth.  When I do wake up, I'm all skinny again and my priority is eating again to get fat and sleep in! :D:

Second choice (first choice, really--bear was just for grins and giggles):  a raven.  Let me fly and enjoy flying.  I've watched a lot of birds fly and ravens seem to be one of the few who actually revel in their ability.  Ravens can fly and they seem to have a sense of humor.  Who needs more than that?
If you understand, things are just as they are.  If you do not understand, things are just as they are.

Well, bears are just generally awesome, in addition to being powerful and fat and lazy at the same time! :)

I've been thinking about this lately, and every time I do the answer seems to change. Right now I think I'd like to be a domestic dog (with a good owner), because dogs seem to enjoy life without analysing it ;) They just do their thing, and they just be. They seem to be happy doing just about anything: running, walking with their owner, smelling stuff. I think they have a lovely nature and I'm a little bit jealous, really!
I don't believe in reincarnation, but in an 'If' situation, my preference would be a dog.

Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?

I wanna be a tree. Because then I'd be a tree. I rest my case.
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

All the good choices were taken already! :cry:

But I'd have to say I would love to be a cedar tree. Either that or a raven. I would love to be able to fly, plus ravens are all black and sleek and smart! Plus plus, Edgar Allen Poe.

An astronaut. Because pictures of space have put me on the verge of tears since before I knew what a "nebula" was and I have dreams about wanting/making preparations to go and something always stops me.

I'd like to come back as a mediocre actress who somehow still manages to get cast in tons of blockbusters.
