Where wild minds come to rest
Augmented Reality is a real nifty thing for the daydream-inclined. Instead of creating a completely separate and detached world, you try to fill in the boring parts of the one you're in. Synesthesia is an effective and sometimes involuntary method of doing this ~ imagining shapes, lights and synchronized movements to music. Or, making up songs out of the normal and very Monday events happening around you.
I like to think of it like layers in Photoshop, you can play with masks…Continue
I started writing a linear story, and I'm on page 11.
That is by far, the most I've ever spent on one single idea. When I gave myself the limitation of having to think in a linear fashion, my brain found amusing ways to get around it. Switching to other characters, dimensions, to myself. Eventually I will turn my MD into productive thought. I guess you can technically say I will stop having "maladaptive" day dreaming but.
I'm still going to be miles away in situations.…Continue

Lately I’ve been daydreaming about my imaginary couple confessing their love for the first time (and for what is actually the millionth time). Yesterday, I suddenly felt compelled to find well-written love letters online, address them to my characters, and print them out in handwriting font. Then I sealed them in envelopes and made up their addresses. I pretend that my characters actually wrote these letters to each other, and I feel stupidly excited. Am I getting weirder or what? And what a…Continue
Some time ago there was a Danish movie Adam's apples. It was about a priest, who was very happy and despite all bad things surrounding him, kept optimistic. He was radiating health, telling, how good his son was in soccer and at school and from time to time became a bit sentimental and sad, remembering his dead wifte (who had died accidentally because of choking). Then one of the characters discovers that the priest is terminally ill, his son is mentally and…Continue
Yeah, it's really, really hard to pay attention.
Well not really.
I do feel like I'm permanently parenting my persona.
"I don't wanna write, I wanna go on facebook!"
"You hate facebook. You feel horribly alone and bored after 20 minutes on it!"
I want my life to be a solid state of meaning
off of my butt to get past just scheming
demeaning my efforts as I try to glide
on the jet streams and currents up in…Continue
Only recently I decided to look this up on the internet and came across this forum thing! I'm 20 years old and think I should share my story...
I've done this ever since I was little and always believed I would grow out of it, but now i've recently turned 20 and it still happens. I (kind of) have accepted it. I'm at university at the moment and it didn't happen very often as I was happy, but recently found out my boyfriend had been cheating on me (and some family problems arose) and…Continue
Nobody's fault but mine
I want to tell a story, which is not exactly about day-dreaming, but about signals from night dreams, absorbing reality and lack of harmony between the mind and the body. Day-dreaming is also related as the whole thing happened due to fighting it.
"Drowning in my sleep". Mind and body disconnect part
There are theories telling that our mind totally controls our bodies. If we really want something, we can do it,…Continue
Okay, I think I just finished my story. I'm at a good ending spot. This is an update to my previous blog that had the first half of the story. I'm tentatively calling it Painted Scars. Let me know if you think that title fits. Also, for those of you who haven't been here a long time, this is the blog of the main character from my story Miles. It ends with her killing Miles, as it's implied she does in that story. I thought that would be a good ending spot. Otherwise, it…Continue

Between work, family, fiance, car issues, and camp meetings I am just about done. I have not had any alone time since Friday and tonight won't be any different. I look forward to tomorrow night. Not having alone time drives me bonkers. Part of it is other people's drama stresses me out. The other thing is I need me time. Me time is daydreaming, playing video games, petting the kitty, and if its nice out taking a walk in the park.
I've missed the nicest two days this…Continue
I found it very hard for me to daydream with my eyes closed. It may sound strange, because it seems that when our eyes are closed imagination works better and create brighter and more colorfull images.
But when I close my eyes because I've started daydreaming I can't create so bright images as when my eyes are open. I've never been wondering why's that. Maybe closing my eyes is like forcing my brain to daydream and daydreaming should be unforced.
So even when…Continue
Well, i'm writting here tonight because i'm so fustrated. I keep daydreaming the same daydreams over and over again. I'm growing quite tired of them. I can't motivate myself to do anything but go into my dream world and I feel like i'm wasting my life away. I have lots of things I want to do like be a good writer, have good friends, be athletic and in good shape, eat well, etc, etc. But I can't do any of them because I can't make my fastasy life like my real life. I mentioned…Continue
For me my daydreaming has a strong link to depression. I have suffered from life threatening depression since I was in grade school. My emotions in real life where always trying to kill me. It was only in daydreaming where I became someone else that I could escape the self-loathing. I tried different medications and several different years of therapy but it made no difference. It was only in my Christianity that I was able to finally break the power of it. Yet I could not give up the…Continue
3 weeks without (excessive) day-dreaming. Irritation and fustration have gone and my mind is very peaceful. I don't believe in this buddism propaganda but Zen Garden descibes my state of mind now perfectly. Maybe, I should dig into it. What happened after 3 weeks of dreaming detox:
(1) I moved to a beautiful place near Warsaw, called Ząbki, and it's a paradise of earth. In last 2 days I had to check, if I'm in a lucid dream state or not because it was so fantastic. Well,…Continue

Ok, this one might be gross, so beware. Don't read on if you don't want to read about poop.
For the past few days the cats have had really bad diarrhea, and it's been worrying me. At first it was no big deal. They frequently vomit, and it's all part of having really fluffy cats. I figured a little diarrhea now and then was no big deal and would pass. That was for the first couple of days.
Over the past couple of of days it started to really worry me. What if it's…Continue

Chapter 11: Night Fright
I woke up at 4:00am morning to my doorbell ringing, "Who could that be?" I thought to myself as I pressed the buzzer, and opened my door to take a peak. It was Luc and he stomped up the stairs looking pissed as he grabbed me by the neck, slammed my door, and pinned me against the wall, "You listen here you stupid bitch!" he shouted tightening his grip on my neck sweating with anger. "You better back off of her or…Continue

Chapter 10: New Home, New Life
Spending most of the night with my mom packing my things, tomorrow morning I had a flight to NYC to catch. "Make sure to ONLY pack what you will use at the apartment." my mom said bringing in a large rolling suitcase for the clothes I was bringing with me. "Well she told me to only pack my clothes, my computers, and the things I sleep with. Also, Luc is coming with a small moving van to take the computers and…Continue

Chapter 9: Sexting?
It had been 2 months since the last time Stefani and I were together in the same room, we called each other every night sometimes talking for hours about our days and random shit. Tonight though I was about to be introduced to something new that I never could have thought would be nice. I was all ready for bed at 12:30 until I received a text from Stefani "Ugh!! Baby I'm still crying! I can't believe he did that to me!" the…Continue

Chapter 8: Gift From the Heart
I ended up purchasing a few shirts from Hot Topic before Stefani met us back at the store, "I'm back!" she shouted walking to us before a small crowd of people surrounded with cameras and autograph books. We quickly pushed our way out of the crowd and decided to leave the mall and just head back to the hotel to chill. When we got to the hotel we quickly made our way back to the room to avoid the paparazzi, "I…Continue
