I Love to Escape From Reality

    I listen to music, read fan fiction,

    play video games, and daydream to escape from reality. It feels good but at the same time I feel sad at the fact that I escape so much.

    Whenever I get a chance,

    I daydream about a different life. A life I could have had if I had made different choices.

    Time To Be Free

    When life, the truth, or reality become to much, I find it helpful to listen to music and write. My stories have bizarre twists and turns, that create another realitys hidden in our own. I find the smallest flaw, question, or loop hole and turn it into a chance for magic and myth...

    Not Sure What Reality Is But...

    I'd sure like to get away from the daily grind of activity and social performance.  Music is my greatest escape mechanism.  I can get lost in a song, especially if I'm playing it.  Reading also lets me get away from my normal everyday life and into another...

    Here I am, in spatial contingency observing

    as I hold on to mini parts of me that have little influence on my satisfaction. The roaring sailors of my spirit are literally drowning in black holes and sizzling acid when I attempt to push myself towards a silhouette illusion. When I take a shell and look back I lived in many...

    Reality Is Subjective

    Reality is what we each individually perceive it to be. Everyone has a slightly different way of seeing the world around them that makes living on this earth as a human being a truly unique, if not always wonderful, experience. However, every once in a while I find it difficult...

    Lately, I've just been alone at home just using

    electronics. And sometimes I actually act as if I am in the game. As if I'm someone I'm not. My own created character is another part of me, or my 2nd personality. Its not bad, but it just makes me wonder alot on why I do this. Maybe because i like that world more than the one...

    Lately there's been so much going on in my life

    it can be too much to handle. I like to sink into reading comics, or playing video games pretending i'm the main character and all of a sudden my world doesn't exist anymore. It's a nice and numbing distraction for the time being, but it can hurt snapping back into reality.
