    I feel more like life won't leave me alone. Boring is nice because then I have time to read and hang out and stuff like that.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    Not really. For the most part I have been doing exactly what I want/feel like I NEED to be doing. Living near my family, figuring my self out, building friendships, working to make the world a little bit better place by my existence, creating things, occasionally going on trips to see people I love. I don't have huge dreams. I lied. I guess I do, but they are vague and will take many years to accomplish, and I feel like the things I'm doing are preparing me and paving the way for it. And dreams evolve.

    Maybe I will get married/have kids if I ever meet someone who feels like a good complement to me.

    My life certainly isn't boring, but I still make up little stories and scenarios in my head. It's really fun. I just don't let myself do it at a stoplight. Not that it can really be controlled...

    I was going to say no-but I realized I endlessly explore-it is just all in my own head. So while the mundane aspects of life go on around me, in my mind I dont really have any limitations. I dont judge myself by external metrics, outside of self sufficiency and the ability to support my family. So my mind is my playground, which removes the need to actually make the world my playground.

    My mind is my playground... love it! I can relate to that.

    Also, I feel like there's so much to explore and see even within 1 mi of my apartment. Why do I need to spend hundreds of dollars on a plane ticket when I can go for a walk for free? And even the same street will be different depending on the weather, the season, the time of day, my mood, who I'm with, etc.

    Totally! I am odd, but just sitting on my porch, watching my toddler play, I can enjoy the patterns in the clouds, the beauty in the trees. I make it an aim to find beauty in the things around me, that other people overlook. Just the normal stuff.

    I don't make up things to make my life look more interesting. It's just that I see the world in caricature.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    The only times where i feel life passing me by are when i am looking at it through the tint of other people's expectations of life or others. I start to lose the joy behind being subjective.

    Sometimes, but my brain's usually occupied, so I don't really take notice. Even when in a mundane situation, I end up taking notice of what I see or hear around me. The small things fascinate me. I find art and beauty in a lot of things. Like if I'm cleaning the house, I'm usually thinking of something else at the time, yet I'm fascinated with the color of the furniture, or how it is designed, and what type of emotional effect the decor has on me, what it reminds me of.

    But, I start losing that sparkle when I feel out of place, or lose faith in my goals.
