want to keep writing
am so exhausted that whatever i write at this point would require a lot of editing when i am well rested again
I want to watch some more Ida Lupino movies.
I’ve seen The Bigamist, but it’s been… wow, seven years. Wonder if Netflix has anything.
does anyone else have this other self they’ve created in their mind that is not really exactly you irl but is more like what you want to be and has a life that continues in your head with like weird continuing daydreams but they’re not perfect or anything and wow i forget where i was going with this
I.. I have a mental disorder? Wait..
Key word here: Symptom.
Maladaptive Daydreaming is beginning to be explored as its own mental illness.
However, what is described in the original post is not really maladaptive daydreaming.
I’m so glad I don’t do this, I’d be even more depressed than I already am
(although I do a version of it when I’m writing, but it’s more mapping my own experience onto other personalities to see what they do, so. not the same.)
Really, I never thought that Community was an actual, accurate portrayal of community college.
But then on my first day of classes at community college, I was told to dumb down the world debilitating in my psych class, had to sit on top of my desk in one of my art classes because the chairs in half the classroom had somehow mysteriously disappeared between classes, and I watched a person dressed in a clown costume and a person dressed in an over the top doctor costume walk down the hall, side-by-side, like it was an every day occurrence, only to be pursued several moments later by a lone elderly security guard.
Some of it is so painfully accurate.
