The 2.0 Version of my Life

What is life? You might say life is sweet or life is all about having fun. Others might say, life is a misery and they are sick of it. Rest may regard life as a key to eternal paradise. Do good deeds here and live carefree there.
All in all, ‘Life’ as-we-know-it is a onetime blessing. However, have you ever considered what will happen if we could create a 2.0 version of our lives? What it would be like to live a customized life i.e. designed by our own selves?
Umm... Let us think about it...
Poor might have designed luxurious and rich lives. Losers might have designed their victories. Teenagers will most probably create parent-free, anti-education, facebook/twitter-promoting, happy-go-lucky versions. Girls as princesses waiting for their Prince Charming and boys as Superman, Bond-007 or billionaires.
Criminals would have designed an unlawful lives. Models and beauty pageants would have gone for eat-whatever-stay-slim lifestyle. ‘The –Super-Power’ wishing for oil coming from their water taps while Sadam might have tattooed on his forehead that ‘I don’t have Weapons of Mass Destruction’.
Snow white might have preferred to get rid of her beauty that caused so much trouble. Voldemort might have wished no ‘Chosen-One’s’ like Harry Potter in his life. Jack Dawson would have met Rose Bukater on some exotic Hawaii beach rather than on a sinking Titanic in a freezing ocean.
My sister would have likely to be co-vocalist of Cody Simpson in Australia. And a lazy person would have customized a fortune like Mr. Zardari.
However, I would like my 2.0 version of life simple. I’ll re-live my childhood with rides on my father’s back and hugs from my mum. I will spend my teenage years a little carefree and a future as a successful artist!
But at the end of the day, I’m a human being and who knows I’ll end up confessing,
I wanna be a billionaire so freaking bad,
Buy all of the things I never had,
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine,
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen.
