    I wished to be a fighter jet pilot in the air

    force since young but I guess it will never happen at all. My plans kinda ruined my dreamt career path, right now taking a double masters degree completely unrelated to being a pilot.

    Dreaming is part of me.

    I love to dream up different possibilities to situations and I love to dream that someone out there in the world is waiting to meet me as I am for him/her. It just makes me feel like I am important somehow. :) I also love to dream up stories. One day I want to write and...

    Dream girls are exactly what they are.

    ..dreams. Only this time mine has awake and has been put on earth; but not for me to have, but for someone else to claim. #LifeSucks

    Living On Possibilities

    All of my life I have maintained my strength of spirit by dreaming. The possibilities that lay before me have been my guiding star through the darkest of dark times. Now that I am older I feel a mounting urgency to more avidly pursue what I desire. Life will not go on forever...

    I wake up but am I really awake,

    I look up but what can I really see, the limitations by which I was burdened, are they really a burden me, or perhaps I am insane still holding on to the illusion of sanity, what is beauty, is it really in eye of the beholder, or Is the beholder just lying so he can hold...

    I used to have a habit of dissociating

    when I was younger to be able to deal with life. The older I get, the more it goes away. With my pregnancy, the dissociation finally come to a good stand-still. I wanted to live the life I had and didn't want to be somewhere else or something else. I do have dreams, but they...

    I feel very lucky that I am a dreamer.

    I don't know where we all will be without no dreams. Having dreams give you motivation to chase after it and make it true. It gives you positive energy to look forward to something in life. It's also a comfortable place to hide when life becomes ruthless.I love to dream and it...

    I am a dreamer, who dreams many dreams,

    I am the whisper, of an ever fading wind I am the wind, that dances in the trees, I am that song, that's ghostly and still I am a dreamer, from times long ago, who drifted away, past the scarlet-wide seas. poem (c) me

    Most of my friends and coworkers think I'm

    What separates a person
