Becoming Others

Sometimes I just get the urge to want to be someone fictional. How fun would that be for even just one day? Don't get me wrong, I love my current life, but I have to live that every single day. I wake up, I'm me. I go to school, I'm me. I come home, I'm me. I go to sleep, I'm still me. A little change every now and again wouldn't be so bad.
Then there comes the issue of who I would want to become. There are so many fictional characters out there that I love that I act nothing like. A few examples:

Mama Rose: You may or may not know Mama Rose from the musical Gypsy. She also happens to be a real person, but let's not get into that right now. She is the ultimate stage mother who pushes and pushes. She sacrifices everything for her girls, though really for herself. Oh, what I would give to live that paradox.
Joanne: Ah, my favorite RENT character. Well, she's a woman, so that kind of already messes up any chance of becoming her. She has that strong personality and that job that pays. She has problems, but she is still strong through it all.
Aggie: From A Catered Affair I bring the ultimate wedding planner. All she wants is one happy day for her only daughter. She's lived through it all, but she still wears a smile. That's a true woman.

Of course this is all just a nice fantasy, but one can wish to live through those eyes. So, if you've made it this far, I pose a question:

Whose eyes do you want to live through?
