March 14 is, in fact, Pi Day, but I couldn’t think of how to mix books with math (except for how much money we spend on them). But then I got to thinking of smart characters, and our favorite geeky and nerdy characters (not a bad thing to be), and then I went back to this idea: being an actual fictional character. Perhaps it’s you being one of your favorite fictional characters; what would life be like? Or maybe create a persona or alter ego of yourself based off fictional characters, or making yourself a fictional character to be with or defeat other fictional characters. Let your imagination run wild.
If I were a fictional character…I don’t know. I’d be like me. I’d be the girl with incredibly unruly pink or blue curls, big brown eyes, and a funky wardrobe. I’d be wicked smart. I’d still struggle with extreme anxiety and “mild” depression (is there really such a thing as “mild” depression? Sorry, tangent, ANYHOO) . But then…I’d discover I have come awesome superpower and that the world is in danger and it needs me to help save it BUT! In order to do that, I’d have to train and get stronger, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally. I’d train and get stronger and stronger everyday and eventually I’d learn to cope with my anxiety and depression (maybe not overcome it, but at least cope with it). And I’d fly off and save the world AND myself and maybe meet my soul mate in the process.
This is kind of my imagination’s dream for me and someday I hope parts of it can come true in my real life. This is how I wish I saw myself, what I hope is true for myself, that I’m strong and capable and could change someone’s life for the better.
