Star Wars 30 Day Challenge: Day 25
25. Character you’d switch places with for a day
Padme Amidala. I’ve always thought that she is such an awesome role model. She reminds me of a tough Disney princess - although she has a tragic ending instead of a happily ever after. She’s much like me in that she rarely lets her emotions get the better of her and is a bit closed up unless she’s with someone she really trusts. Usually a male character has such traits, so it is nice to see a woman with the traits. Not all women are moody and cry several times a week, as many movies would lead you to believe.
I just love her. I love that she never lost her faith in the goodness of others. Being a politician no doubt let her see the ugly side of life, but she never let it bring down her optimism for a better future. She was great at seeing the good in everyone. She had to watch her husband become a man she no longer knew, yet still her last words were “There’s good in him. I know there is, still.”
She’s just all around an awesome person. I’d love to be in her shoes for a day. She has an interesting job, has a beautiful apartment, and lives on an amazing planet (
and she’s married to Anakin, for God’s sake).
