Default Do you daydream?

If you do, what do you daydream about? What did you daydream about as a kid?

Someone just asked me what I usually daydream about, and I haven't really been a daydreamer since I was 11 or 12 years old. As a kid I daydreamed about things like finding out I had magical powers or belonged to some kind of group...getting a puppy or horse...or being an adult with a house and kids and a cool job and stuff.

Now...I really don't daydream, ever.

I think I daydream a lot. Now is it always pleasant stuff? Probably not. Sometimes it's just me thinking ahead about things I'm going to get done, what I'm doing after work, etc. Often I will daydream about pleasant stuff to get through the day. What I'm going to do over the weekend, goals I have, etc. I'm not one of those kind of people that can just think about nothing lol.

See...I don't really count that as daydreaming. Thinking "oh, I need to go to the bank and I can't wait to see my cousin this weekend and my bedroom is going to look so cool after I paint it" to me is just...thinking. Even if you're doing something else.

I consider daydreaming when people sort of play out scenarios in their heads, or think about something a little more unrealistic (not necessarily unrealistic but putting an unrealistic amount of detail into thinking about something in the future.) Like if you're imagining the way a dialogue is going to go, or achieving a goal, that's daydreaming.

For example, I'll think things like "I really want to move in X amount of months, and I need to save X amount of money, and these neighborhoods are going to be the best choices" or "It'll be great to see my old friend this weekend and maybe we can go apple picking or to this open mic night"...but I would never just imagine moving into a new place or picture the way the dialogue with my friend is going to go....

Yeah, I didn't really think that was true daydreaming That's about as close as I get most days.

Lately I have been daydreaming a lot about future puppy. Places we'll go for socialization, the nitty gritty of the potty schedule, that kind of stuff.

Apparently I am super cool. Lolz.

I day dream alot... esp. when I'm on the bus or the train. Can't really say what about, just random stuff.
I also tend to zone out in class... alot. As a kid I did as well. The teacher used to have to call me back into the classroom atleast 1 or 2 a day.
I day dream while driving sometimes... which is pretty dangerous. I don't mean to, but it just happens...

All the time. I did it a lot more as a kid/teen, but I still day dream. About meeting my online friends, running through different situations in my head, about having another dog, all kinds of things. The day dreams are now a bit more 'realistic' than when I was a kid.

If I read a book or play a game, I tend to day dream/dream about being in that situation. I'm a doctor in London during the late 1800's. Now I'm an Elf Ranger on a quest.... They vary

I daydream a lot. The scenarios are sort of never ending. I'm an anxious person anyway, so before something even happens, I've played out 10 different ways it could go in my head. From what someone will say, to bumping into a stranger at the store and suddenly getting lost in thoughts about what their life is like, why they seemed in a hurry, what their spouse is like, what family life they might have...It goes on and on. And I can't turn it off.

I do it a lot on long drives, it easy for me to think and drive at the same time. It doesn't need as much brainpower as say, conversation or keeping up with an audio book. It's like watching movie after movie in my head. Maybe we are running from a bad guy. Maybe I'm thinking about a new story to write down, and I'm pulling subplots from what I'm already doing, "She was washing dishes, and didn't hear him come in the door...SUDDENLY. MICROWAVE EXPLODES.".

It keeps me entertained, I guess.

Same. It's more fun than the movies.. or TV. lol As a kid I used to pretend we lived on a cruise ship. My parent's were the owners and Gipsy and I got to do as we please. I'd take her for walks when we hit land I'd also day dream about that all.the.time.

And yeah, when Im driving, it's not like Im not paying attention per say, but I do realize that I can't really remember what happened for a few seconds - so I guess I do tune out sometimes.

Oh, I wonder about strangers/make up stuff about their lives all the time. Usually when driving, and I see a car stopped next to me, I'll try to decide where they're going, who they're going to meet, what their job is, etc.

As you get closer to your due date you might find you daydream a lot. Its like all I can think about and makes working and doing anything non baby related quite difficult
