Am I the Only One?

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.

Thoughts?

I know exactly what you mean. I live in the same fantasy/delusion on most days. Basically trying to meld real life with the image I have of what I want my life to be like in my head.

Something tells me it's not healthy. And you know when one of those fantasies shatters, and you knew it would never happen but you're still sort of disappointed? Yea. Sucks. But living in the real world all the time is so tedious. :P

It isn't healthy but it's so much nicer living in the happy places in my mind and the fun world of DG fanfic is infinitely more appealing.

I do it all the time. Sometimes I plot whatever story I'm writing in my head, and if it's a good night, I have to constantly get out of bed to write good things down. But when I think about RL, sometimes I can't hold a "fantasy" for long. Like, I just can't imagine my life in the FuTuRe or doing the things I fantasize about doing, so I tend to get distracted and my thoughts wander off into other, less pleasant directions. Like telling people off in my head, since I never do that in person. :P Yeah, I argue with people in my head when I'm trying to go to sleep. And I wonder why it's so hard for me to fall asleep. :/

But I always win the arguments, so I guess it's okay. u_u

Haha! If you didn't win, I would be disappointed.

I've thought about arguing with people but no one ever wins. It's always some morose, depressing ending. Okay, it was on one occasion and was more like some weird place between being asleep and being awake. But I have fantasized about things that would tick my sisters off and then smiled in contentment as I imagined their reactions.
