All About Me Fail

Me and my car. I love my car. I commute to work, so I spend tons of time in it. This is the extent of the ABOUT ME post for the time being.

I've been meaning to do a post just about me, since I've never done one, and sometimes it's fun to "define" yourself through your own eyes, right?

The problem is, I'm too tired to define myself and look up the corresponding images.... so instead I'm posting about two things I love.

Twinkle Lights and Dreaming

I keep twinkle lights up all year long. I love the atmosphere they create, and I love how dreamy they feel.
They're just so pretty. It crossed my mind that perhaps I'm too old to love them. They usually feature in teenage bedrooms in movies (Bella in Twilight for example), but I came to the conclusion, I really don't care.

I also love dreaming, in the night or day.
I love dreaming about the world as a better place, a more loving place.
I love dreaming about my future.
I also have incredibly vivid night time dreams. I often write them into short stories (and have since High School). The downside to this is, I also have vivid nightmare, frequently about an apocalypse, (admittedly usually the nightmares make for better writing). I've been chased by the mafia in dreams, killed by vampire slayers (even though I wasn't a vampire), I've fallen and hit the ground - I broke my leg, I've been a shape shifter, although I didn't realize it at first, and all the people I ran into saw me as someone different. I tried to not analyze that dream too deeply, yikes.
Anyway, to dreaming...

It felt good to write/image-ify this post. If you made it to the end, thank-you for reading. Lots of love xoxox
