    It Gets Overactive

    when i know I have to go through a certain situation. Say go to a party, ask a professor something. Anything that i know is coming up soon;; i always have to over analyze the whole situation. It wouldnt be me if i didn't.

    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...

    Eccentric Daydreaming

    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...
