Short Essay On If I Had Magical Powers

Ever since I was a child, I dreamed about having magical powers. Books by Enid Blyton introduced me to fairies and brownies and pixies and other magical creatures. I also enjoyed watching Sabrina, the teenage witch when I was a teen myself and Bewitched as a child. Then of course, came Harry Potter — every child’s {or in my case, teen and later, adult} ultimate fantasy.

If I had magical powers, I’d first and foremost, hope I didn’t have any restrictions on them. I would prefer to use my fingers for magic a la Sabrina as opposed to having wands. Just more convenient, I think. I’d make use of my magical powers in the following ways.

Transport

Traffic in Sydney is a nightmare which is why I take public transport to my job at the moment. Having said that, it still takes me a good hour and a half door to door each way. I like that I can read or write but I hate that I have to leave so early and get home so late. So yes, if I had magical powers, I’d just snap my fingers and wish hard for where I need to be and voila! No time at all!

Cooking

Another thing that takes time is cooking. Although, I must admit my new pressure cooker is awesome for that. Yet, I still have to chop up my veggies and prepare things. So my magical powers would certainly come in handy to whip up a good healthy meal quickly.

Cleaning

Do I really need to elaborate on this? Surely nobody enjoys cleaning! My unit constantly seems to be in a state of mess. With magical powers, I wouldn’t have to lift more than a finger to keep my unit spick and span!

Teach some people a lesson

I am tired of the unkindness I see around me. Not necessarily directed at me but to a lot of the kids I see in therapy. I really would love to teach bullies, abusers, perpetrators and other unkind souls a lesson. I don’t know how I’d do that really but maybe even use my powers to have them experience what they put others through to get an actual idea of what it’s like.

Get me all the books

I don’t think I’d use my magical powers to get free money {I think there was a clause about that in Sabrina, the teenage witch} but I certainly would use it to get more books. I do buy a lot of books and would continue to do so to support authors but I think occasionally, it wouldn’t hurt to wish myself some more.

Paperwork

Another tedious chore and unfortunately, an essential part of my job is keeping paperwork up to date. It’s a part of the job I have always disliked but I’m aware I have no option. If I had magical powers though, I’d be able to make the pen write neat notes while I am in session with a client therefore not requiring me to decipher and rewrite my squiggles.

Play with time

I wouldn’t go backwards or forwards in time. I don’t think it’s allowed. Rather, I would make time at work go by quickly and slow time down when I’m enjoying life. I guess though, given I would be using my powers to get rid of a lot of chores, I’m sure I’d have more time anyway for the things I love such as reading, writing, and exercising.

All these ideas are making me wish I really did have magical powers. I think life would be amazing!

What would you do with magical powers?

Are you a wand person or a magical finger/nose person?

I'd take Spider-Man's powers. Living in New York with his abilities, I would be able to own the city and do whatever I wished. It would keep me busy and give me an incredible picturesque view of the city. I'd experience life from a perspective without any restrictions.

If I were a super hero I would like to have powers to be able to help other people. One power would be to be able to resuscitate people that have died. I would also like to cure diseases like cancer, aids, and many more. I don't think strength will matter, just heart.

Gabriela Romero

If I were a superhero I would want to have the ability to stop time! I need more time to work out and read and do all this homework and there isn't enough time in the day. If I could freeze time for an hour to run, or read the book I started a month ago. It would be so helpful and I would be able to spend more time with friends and family, instead of doing work for school.

Sandra Hernandez

If I were a superhero, my power would be to heal people so no more people would die of cancer or diseases. No one would have to pay thousands of dollars on hospital bills; which would help those who can't afford healthcare. If I had that power, life would be a lot easier for people

I would want the power to duplicate myself. I could be at two places at the same time. I could be eating pizza and my duplicate could be doing homework.

Rey Perez

Eating. I would love to eat, and eat, and eat, and never gain any weight. This "power" would be nice because I would be able to full fill my never ending hunger. I would not struggle with any weight or health issues, but I would just eat to my stomach's content. Now, I know this probably would not benefit or contribute any good to the world as a whole, but it would definitely make me happy.

Tony Hernandez

If I were a superhero I would want the power to help our planet. I want this power to stop global warming and make a brighter future for our children.

Elizabeth Vasquez

If I was a superhero and I could have any type of super power I would probably have to model my powers after Aqua man. He can live underwater and on land, and he can speak to fish along with being able to control water. Those have got to be the best super powers anybody could ask for.

Jesus Chavez

I would want the power of youth. I would like to stay the age of 25 and have fun forever.

Joe Mancillas

I would just like to move things with my head. It would make things easier since I'm already lazier than ever.

If I would have the power it would be to be any animal I wanted to be. I would fly like an eagle, as fast as a cheetah, climb like a monkey,

and be as strong as a lion.

Mario Moreno

If I was given the opportunity to possess any superhero power known to man, I would like to have the ability of making a person smile. I know that this power is not rare to find among people today, but it is still a wonderful and powerful gift to have. Mother Teresa once said "Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing." You can change a person's entire outlook on their day or even their life by simply smiling at them, or smiling with them. Either way, a smile can only benefit someone whether you wear it yourself, or helping them find theirs.

Vanessa Garza

Teacher: Jean Bovee

Weslaco High School

I would have the powers to do my homework in the blink of an eye and get all the answers right as long as I paid attention in that class period. I would also have speed and invisibility. I want the power of invisibility because there are days that I don't want to be seen because I don't feel very good and being invisible will help me a lot with those days.

Patrysha Rivera

Teacher: Wenndy Pray

Vernon Middle School

If I was able to choose any superpower for myself, I'd choose to be able to duplicate myself. I am a very busy person, at times. When I am working, I usually want to be out with my friends. Sometimes, I'll ask for days off just to be with my girls, and if I could duplicate myself, I'd be able to have fun and be in another place doing what I really have to do.

Victoria Garcia

If I could be any super hero or have any powers I world want to have some hulk and wolverine put together because I think it would make a good super hero with those powers. I would help out the good people of world and try to save the day from all the evil people. The reason I picked those heroes because I like the powers the Hulk has when he does the Hulk smash and I like the Wolverine because of the color he has and also the has the power to smell thing from a distance and mainly because of the iron claws he has when

on his hands

Jose Gonzalez

If I were a superhero, I would have the power of telekinesis. I would be able to move things with my mind and also read other people's minds! It could come in handy!! I could read other people's minds and see if they were plotting to take over the world or something. I could move things with my mind and have less handy work. I could have much more energy to stop other evil villains!!!

Megan Mendoza

Teacher: Stacey Hill

Gutierrez Middle School

I want to be able to tell people what to do. The power of manipulation would be cool. I would tell people to do my job.

Jose Sanchez

Teacher: Robert Leal

Veterans Memorial Academy

If I were a superhero, I would like to have the power of reading minds. I would like to have that power because I could read my friends' minds when they are talking about me. I would also like to have that power because if someone is following me I will know what they are trying to do.

Erik Torres

Teacher: Vernon Nelson

Vernon Middle School

I were to be a superhero my power would be the power to change the world's mistakes. If I had that power there wouldn't be any wars, everyone would live in peace, and no one would ever be in danger.

Aimee Perez

Teacher: Robert Leal

If I was a superhero I would have some pretty awesome powers. Superheroes to me are wonderful! My superhero powers would be I could just automatically disappear anywhere and anytime, super strong strength, and eat whatever I want. I think my superhero powers would be so awesome.

Vanessa Cruz

Teacher: Wenndy Pray

I would have super speed so I can finish my work quickly. I would have more time to sleep, I love to sleep.

Jose Rodriguez

Gilbert Maldonado

Teacher: Vernon Nelson

Vernon Middle School

I would have certain powers that would only help me. I don't care if I sound selfish because that is the way most of the world is anyway. The powers that I would have would be to be able to read people's minds, but only when I want to because otherwise it would just get annoying. I would also have the power to tell the future and again I would have complete control over my powers.

Christina Rodriguez

Teacher: Robert Leal

Veterans Memorial Academy

If I were a superhero, I'd have the power of invisibility so that I could rob a bank and be the richest woman in the world. Then I'd live happily ever after.

Nina Avila

Teacher: Jean Bovee

Weslaco High School

Superheroes have at least one or two powers, but if I were a superhero, I would have seven powers. My first power would be to read minds from miles away or even of those who are close by. I would be able to block out the thoughts I don't want to hear, though. I would also have the power to see the future when something is decided. My other powers would be to heal fast, have turbo speed, and have super strength. I would also have the power to cause something or someone to endure pain. Mentally of course and only to those who hurt me in any way. Last but not least, I would have the power to fly and feel the wind hit my face as I soar freely in the air.
