    I daydream. I dream so strongly

    that my imagination becomes more tangible than reality. I'm afraid of the day that I realise it's all pretend. It might not be completely bad. At least I will be living my own life instead of the lives of the people inside my head but I think I'd rather be one of them.

    Dreaming For Too Long.

    I have never been this lost in life. This is because I always know what I want to do in the future since I was little. Since I was a kid, I really like to draw. I told everyone that i am going to be an artist. And of course everyone smiled at me and think in their heads that: she...

    Just Saying...

    I'd rather die early knowing that my dreams will never come true than live a long time not knowing that they will come true or not. I'd rather know now than waste the rest of my life wishing.
