Alter Ego

If you haven’t heard this term before, well let me fill you in. An alter ego, is Latin for “the other I” like a person leading a double life. 

I don’t live a double life, but I do think I know who my alter ego would look like. 

2 words. 

Carrie Bradshaw.


If you dont know who Carrie Bradshaw is, she is a character on the show Sex and the City.

Why Carrie?

Carrie is so many things that I aspire to be and can relate to. 

Fashion. From first glance, you can tell Carrie loves fashion. She is always finding new, unique, looks. 

I love this look. Source:

One of her biggest dreams was to have a giant closet. Now, I don’t consider myself materialistic, but who wouldn’t love to have an endless wardrobe? Especially one as fashionable as Carrie’s. If I didn’t have to worry about money, I would have a wardrobe like hers. 


Personality. Carrie is sarcastic, funny, loving, strong willed, and deep. I feel like I relate to her personality greatly. She is always there for the people she loves, but is also very blunt with them too. I am all too similar in nature.


Career. Carrie is a writer. The show is mainly built around the things she writes. Her writing is always deep and makes you look at things differently. I aspire to be an accomplished writer, like Carrie is. I have yet to figure out how far I want to go with it though.

City. I always thought it would be cool to live in a big city like New York City. Where everything is in walking distance and if it isn’t you yell for a taxi. In my mind, living like Carrie does in the city, it seems magical. In reality, I don’t really know if I could survive it, as fast paced as it is. Though, I would be willing to try.

Don’t get me wrong, I love who I am.  I wouldn’t give up anything I have to be Carrie. The fantasy is always there though.

What about you? Do you have an alter ego?

Happy Hump Day!
