The president of the Philippines and make good priorities for the good of the Filipino people. There is too much poverty and it needs to be addressed immediately. I will use that one day to make policies that could generate more jobs for the Filipino people and that could somehow help them elevate their status of living. I know it would be impossible but I am just expressing a dream here to see my people have good jobs coz in that way they couldprovide for the needs of the family. I dont know if I could be ableto achieve something in one day, its only a dream and could never come true. What about you mylotters, whowould you want to be if you could be somebody for one day who would you want to be?

With all the decisions he has to make, I would never want to be George Bush. It must be agony for any many leaders for all the important decisions they have to make. But, I'd rather be him than Hillary Clinton. LOL

If I could be somebody else for one day, I would choose to be Bill Gates who is so intelligent and able to make his fortune at such a young age. With the intelligence I would be happy enough to make the same amount of wealth and I would donate some for my family and friends, and some for the charity to help the poor to get them well educated for getting a job more easily and those who are disabled to live better.

He has given away billions of dollars. Not many people would do that if they were that rich. I really like what you would do with the money, William. Especially the part about helping the disabled. : )

If I could be someone else I would want to be Paris Hilton. Lol. I want to know how it feels like to be the heir of a famous hotel owner. I would want to know whether being rich and beautiful makes my life happy or the other way around. I want to know whether friends around Paris Hilton are true friends, or just friends for money.

I would not want to be anyone other than who I am. Who knows if someone else's life is actually worse than my own? I will stick to my life.

Its ok to do that, its just a matter of having the heart to do the things that will also be of significant value to others.

You don't have to be the president to make a difference helping your people economically. There are all sorts of organizations out there that you can become involved in or you could create a business or organization of your own with the specific intent of helping people get jobs and improve economically. As for me, I don't want to be someone else because everyone's life has a downside. I'd rather just be the best that I can be.

This is a tough question. Having only one day wouldn't give me much of an opportunity to incorporate a change. I guess I would say an Olson twin, either Mary-Kate OR Ashley. I would eat a whole lot and then let them realize they would be even prettier and happier if they had a little more meat on their bones. : ) LOL

I would want to see that happen and see for my very eyes how they look like with more meat on their bones. Thanks ambie!

I would choose to be the deity of the people that need it most. Stressing that killing is wrong and that although I love them they must stop the killing. That they would need to be taking care of one another and being social. No more lying, sneaking and downtrodding another person. Being the deity of the neediest group of people on this earth would have to make it a better place. I think being a deity for a day would be doable but not sure people would respond. Nice to dream about though.

yes, your dreams are noble and admirable. but i think once you are there you would change. do you believe in the saying that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. you cant say that you could address the poverty issue. anyway if i could be anybody for a day i want to be a soccer superstar. i could score lots of goals and be the best player in the world. what a dream, i always wanted to play professionally but i lack talent, what i lack in talent i put it merely in my dreams. if only it could happen. we both want our wishes. you could still aim for politics. even just you could become a mayor or a governor of your town or city, you could still address the poverty issue. there are still ways of addressing the poverty issue without becoming a president of the country. have you heard of Gawad Kalinga, they help alleviate the status of living of the Filipino people. i havent tried to be involve with them, someday i wish i could take part in their activities and involvement. I was helping for a week in Habitat for Humanity though. same concept with Gawad Kalinga, low cost housing programs, helping the poor have self esteem and confidence in themselves. helping alleviate the poor one family at a time.

Yes, I hope we can see our dreams unfolding before our very eyes. But miracles do happen in little things that we do coz these little things are the start of something big.

I had some time to think about this one a little better so I no longer choose Oprah...I want to be Condoleeza Rice so whenever Bush does or says something stupid, I could just lean over and whisper to him that he didn't take his medication that day and needed to just go back to bed or something...

If I could be somebody else for just one day, I would want to be Oprah Winfrey...because for me she's somebody looked up to by many people. She has great talent; She's witty, intelligent, generous, and cheerful. Everyone likes to be her, i guess. :)

That is an excellent dream! I hope it comes true :) I don't really know who I'd like to be for a day. Probably a rich celebrity or just some one really rich. Just to be able to do anything I wanted that day without having to worry about money. That'd be nice. I know my answer isn't as noble as yours :)

oh. that's one good dream there zelmarq. there's nothing wrong about dreaming. so, it's okey. and yup. one day is too short for a president to do something different. it takes years and years to make something better. change doesn't come in an instant. it's not magic. it takes hard work, many years, patience, constant planning and all. and when there are lots of people opposing on you even if you are trying your best, you can't move forward. thing is, most people think that presidents should do this and that quickly. people expect too much and complain a lot instead of helping and being of hand for progress. anyway, too much for that. hehe. sorry for that insight. if ever i could be somebody for a day, i wanna be kate hudson. nothing much. i just find her really pretty, cute and sexy. and i really adore her cute smile. happy myLotting! anne

Santa Claus. I want to be him for a day. I want to experience the feeling of giving presents to the children from any place of the world. Imagine being able to travel around the world and give presents at the same time in one night! kewl! hehehe. I want to experience as well the fun of climbing the chimney! LOL! and to drive the flying reindeer! yeey! cool! it would be amazing. Plus people will be very nice to me, if i'll be Santa Claus or else they'll be in my naughty list..no gifts.! LOL! (i don't think Santa do that, not giving present if you're naughty...)
