    Reality Can Be So Boring

    That's why I prefer fantasy. I mean, I would love to make my reality more interesting, but at the moment there's not much I can do. So I'm just waiting for my oopertunity and until then just distracting myself with fantasy. I do all sorts of things to distract myself from...

    Fantasy is so much more interesting...

    I am often stuck in my own little world of fantasy. Imagination is very important in this world. Because without it, without books, without fantasy, this world would be so dull.It is so normal. So ordinary. What do people see in it, I wonder? I look around at all the ordinary...

    Fantasy Vs Reality

    I believe it's good to have a fantasy world because it's (usually) something to aspire to in real life.  It's your dreams of what you wish your life to be.  Although, some fantasies are better left in the dark!!  Plus, the fantasies I wanted when I was younger aren...
