Who would you rather be if you are born in the past? Would you like to be a famous person in history? a politician? a famous prophet? a religious character in the Bible? a writer? an actor/actress? Choose the era you want whether in the the year before Christ was born (BC) or from the 1st to the 19th century (AD). To answer my own question, I probably would be Joan of Arc. Joan has lived a noble life and is dedicated to serving God. She was chosen by God to lead the French army to victory (Hundred Years War). I would love to have the courage and faith she had to conquer her enemies.

I would want to be a member of society in the Victorian era and be a Suffragette. That's my absolutely favourite time period and it would be cool to be a proper lady, but to also fight for my right to my own voice.

There are still knights now. The Victorian Era was 1880-1910.

I know but was the era wherein they started to dub knights? Oh wait, it just came to me, was that the age of chivalry?

Well other than missing out on the advantages of modern medicine, like for childbirth especially, I would say that I would love to be Ruth. In the book of Ruth, Ruth was an outsider who choose to follow her mother in law and follow her G♥d..I can understand what it is like being an outsider, for my beliefs put me on the outside of any church, I follow G♥d, not man..But like everyone, I still need guidance and I believe Ruth's mother in law was her guide..And I love how generous she was and her experience gathering, (I like to gather too), was cool because the owner, (who of course became her husband later on, how romantic), told his workers to drop more grain for Ruth to collect..

Interesting you wanna be a lady if you were reborn? Well, I like Audrey Hepburn too. I actually want to collect DVDs of all of her movies. I can't afford though DVDs are too expensive, even if it's on sale...LOL
