So it came to me last night (after reading a Tumblr comic) that I do in fact think about impossible, unrealistic situations as I go to sleep at night. My nightly preparations often include opening up Pandora (I'm so happy about the hour limit thing they have) and turning on my So Close by Jon McLaughlin station. Then I'll listen to that as I go to sleep and think of all these different situations that go with the music. I make myself an 'unrealistic life' soundtrack.
Am I the only one who does this? Thinks of impossible situations I mean? Obviously not because of the comic, but I thought it would be interesting to hear about it.
I guess you could call them fantasies. And you know that these things could never happen, but, at the same time, there's a small part of you that keeps going 'what if?' My imagination always runs off with me, and by the soundtrack, you can guess that some of these are probably romantic in nature. Most of them though are things about what I imagine my life would be like in the FuTuRe. Successful doctor, successful writer? City living, country living? Husband, no husband? Kids, no kids? Then I create all these scenarios melding all those things together. It's a little sad sometimes when combined with my no life status. On my morose days I imagine going through some awful heartbreak and ending up living an unsuccessful life with my shoes. No cats for me.
