    I bet every member of this group can relate to this somewhat. Maybe not the exact same thing because I often worry if I have some kind of disorder when I think of this but most people here are probably very spacey. Spaciness can be quite eccentric on it's own if you space out at...

    What If...?

    If I have a tiny worry, or something even remotely bad happens, before long I will have obsessed over all the "what ifs". I over-think everything and tend to believe that others opinions about me are much harsher than reality. I heard once somewhere that 90% of our...

    Learning to Control My Imagination

    I get caught up with images whenever an idea, emotion, thought, etc. passes through my mind when I was younger I was bad with it; so much so that I allowed myself to treat it like it was reality or really possible. I've grown up a lot since then but still find myself...

    I have quite the imagination,

    I always have. It sounds like most have their's for uses of good; I do as well. However, I've always thought of a million scenarios in which things can go bad. I'll think of different ways in which I, or other people could die at this very second. I also have a childish mind, so...

    Picture This

    I am Ryan. My imagination is my favorite part of me. It is a weapon against this world. It is a shield that protects me from the people who attempt to poison me with their lies and cruelty. I wield my imagination like a sword, striking blows against the ignorance of the so-called...

    I Kinda Love It :3

    I love my imagination - because when I daydream I can be anyone I want to be, and do whatever I want without breaking the law (gravity included). If I'm having a rough day there's nothing I love more than putting on my Ipod; picking a song and then just letting my mind wander...
