F A N T A S I E S

Sometimes in my head I'm watching a pre-record acceptance speech at an award ceremony I'm too important to go to. I sometimes imagine myself being interviewed in high-end magazines wearing more flamboyant clothes than I usually do. Sometimes I imagine myself scoring the winning goal in a world cup final for rebublic if Ireland, I don't even particularly like football. The fantasies are personal but they aren't fully ours, are they? C'mon what are they for you? This thread is about you and your aspirations and inadequacies,
I was just listening to a song and started daydreaming about being on stage and my dance moves were blowing minds. Then I made eye contact with a girl and gave her a smirk and then carried on blowing minds.

Tell us some of yours!

i've shared quite a few on here before but i cant remember any now. i'll come back to the thread when i remember some.
 
It’s a hilarious conversation if people are willing to tell the truth. And obviously even then we’re selective. Sometimes narcissistic fantasy about trivial shit is more embarrassing than megalomania

i was thinking ive mostly transitioned to the megalomania. i dont have as many about being in the swimming pool and saving beautiful girls from drowning these days. i had a lot of sport ones when i was younger. but i wasnt necessarily me but a hunky and invincible alter ego doing conventional things like smashing people.

i think if youre pure hearted and thick enough you can write bestsellers on this basis. just a pure channeling of these basic fantasies. jack reacher.

I love food and have daydreamed about going to going to cool restaurants, could be either exclusive high-end spots or a new pizza place that's got an amazing take on Sicilian slices. I plan out the trip, of course going at an off-peak time so you don't wait in line like a foodie lemming, savor the signature dish. I think I'm a closet foodie.

also daydream about playing basketball, hitting three-pointers and reverse layups to win playoff games. that could be an attempt to regain youth, since I played as a kid.

my capacity for fantasy is greatly dimished. i used to wallow in it lovingly for ages every day.
 
Hahaha. Yeah I have loads of fighting ones, usually raging with indignance or protecting the innocent. And then people will be praising me afterwards, women wanting to talk to me, see if I’m ok. But I’ll have to go, I’ll leave, play down the fuss. I’m too busy, too complex, take care of yourselves now

hes got loads of them. chasing robbers away from various beautiful women who'd then fall in love with him.

fantasy is one of the things i made a decision to cut out. like the inner voice stuff and feeling 'melancholy'. i just made a decision to erase it. and you do wind up asking yourself if it was a mistake, but by then its too late

well, it's a playoff game so it's in a sold-out arena, of course. oddly, I'm often moving in slow motion similar to a game reply on TV.

at actual speed, moves in sports can look awkward and arbitrary but in slow motion reply, everything seems precise and deliberate. that's the aspect I like.
