    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...

    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...

    It keeps me up at night.

    Not "it", the clown from the Stephen King novel, which scare the hell out of me because I'm afraid of clowns, but my imagination. I always let in run wild like a three legged dog. Except after a while the dog has nowhere to run because it has bit the ocean, and due to its...

    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...

    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...
