Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
@Laila: It sort of died. I mean, I can't get much farther than space. What happened after that was this:
We obliterated their army. But one alien managed to bail out of the ship before it blew up and, because of his exoskeleton, survived the lack of air and air pressure in space. I go out in a space suit (Similar to his exoskeleton) and try to shoot him. I miss and go tumbling down to Earth (The battle was apparently above Earth). He propels himself down and we both survive the descent into Earth's orbit. We are in massive jungle which, in modern times, is the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
I take off my suit and flee, knowing I can't defeat him. I hear some ape-like noises in the distance and head there. There are some wild bonobos. I convince them that there is a monster chasing me (Using the bonobo "language") and that they need to fight it to defend their territory. They dog-pile him while I take cover behind a tree. His exoskeleton pops off, stunning the nearby bonobos. Without his exoskeleton, he is like a gelatinous human-shaped thing with red glowing eyes.
I run at him, smashing his head with my hands. He pushes me off and grabs a piece of his exoskeleton. I slip a rock behind my back and pretend to cower. I roll out of the way at the last moment and punch him in the face, then repeatedly slug him as he falls. When he begins to recover, I take the rock and smash it into one of his eyes. He convulses for a few moments before going still.
I am hailed as a hero, then resign from both Galactic Union Presidentship and Earth Presidentship. I have some doctors perform brain surgery on me to make me like a regular old bonobo, and am sent to live in the wild. I have three children and die at the age of 173, ~5750 years after I was born.
Is anyone having a special daydream for Halloween? My characters are going to receive lots of trick-or-treaters, play scary pranks on each other, and dress up in costumes! Woo!
Gyah, now that Patty's messages are gone, my previous messages look like random replies. xD
My daydreams tend to be random depending on what ever random thought has come to mind.
Lately though my most common one are about a celebrity crush.
I usually daydream about several things. One type of daydream I have is neutral, where I talk to some superior figure (like a professor or employer) about my life and the things going on in my head. Another kind of daydream I have is positive where I envision things that I can/will do in the future, such as teaching in an art class. I really enjoy these because it helps me think of creative ways to introduce lesson plans. Then, I have negative daydreams where I worry about tragedies happening.
But my most obsessive kind of daydream I have right now is talking to my former professor about my daydreams and obsessive nature and how my mind functions. I discuss my rationalizations for why my mind works this way.
I have a theory that recurring daydreams have some root in reality. Perhaps a stressful situation or pattern of thinking makes us have certain kinds of daydreams. Perhaps, if this daydream makes you feel uncomfortable you could do some mind-detective work and try to resolve whatever issue is causing this particular daydream. Maybe it stems from fear of your own mortality or perhaps from a severed bond with someone you were close to. I started having daydreams about dying when I was about to leave for college because it was such a huge change.
My current daydream is where I've just discovered that I have a disease and I have only a couple of years to live . I'm not enjoying it but well I'm having trouble ending it, and I'm not even in any deppressed or stressed phase. It got worse today where I found out that its spread all around the world. I was released from the hospital and the disease seems to have spread acorss the streets. People with it will spontaneously burst or body parts will disapear and Im walking across this road seeing random body parts lieing around and people spontaneously bursting and body parts dropping. It kind of stopped around there when I was interrupted by my mom, well then I had a different daydream but I know that this one will come back and replay.
