Well I've just got a laser machine to make stuff with, but it's sometimes hard to get the interest in it, I've done a few bits and pieces, I have millions of ideas running around holding hands in my head, but when it comes to remember them they have gone. I've got a notebook that I write reminders in do I'm using that. The box on my profile picture is one that I've done.

When im on a high i wish i was famous i listen to my ipod and imagine im the one on stage. I listen to Alicia Keys and imagine i have her talent of playing the piano ect. i get such a buzz from music. but mostly i dream of being a really important dr like a surgeon being able to help ppl and change there lifes and have that element of respect u get from having such an amazing profession. I think i just want to be someone important u know. i get the buzz and start looking on the internet at scrubs and all the little gadgets i would buy and see how i become a dr even though i could never be intelligent enough.
I'm totally the same.
I'm so glad I've found this forum it's made me realise there's other people out there like me.
Sometimes I go so in depth with details that they can cross over in to my reality, when I say my reality I mean more of a warping where sometimes for brief moments it feels real.
Sometimes I get so deep I worry I may cross over completely and lose who I am.
I remember once I was on the sick after having a knee operation and I decided to do a bit of reading.
Over a period of 3 months I'd read All the Arthur C Clarke Space odyssey books, all of his Rama books a few others by Arthur C Clarke, about 10 Stephen King books and virtually all of James Herbert's books.
I became that lost in literature that I started narrating my own life.
Every step I made, every door I opened was spoken with a mishmash of descriptive narratives.
As funny as it sounds and it does to me I felt like I was losing my individuality and losing what made me me.
I haven't been able to sit still long enough since to read another book.
I used to love reading, now I'm more worried I'll become a living book.

I love writing, so I guess in my "highs" it's when I feel the most creative. I used to draw too. I like to sing and I'd make acting monologue's in the shower (LOL). Then again also during a time, where I think I'm amazing at what I do. Then the low comes and I cringe at myself. HA
