Dreaming Days Away…

Sometimes…I prefer dreaming to reality.

In dreams anything can happen. You have no worries of money, no thoughts of the future, nothing. In a way it’s like being a child again, unaware of the outside world and all the bad alongside it. It can also allow you the freedom to live in the moment with no restrictions…living in the moment but outside reality. Of course these are all good dreams. Nightmares on the other hand are very different. In some cases it can even put fears you never knew you had into your everyday life, bringing them alive. So it’s best to just keep them away, or even invest in a dream catcher to prevent bad dreams!

The main beauty I find in dreams is that you can occasionally adapt them or even control them, given that you realise you are dreaming. Which occasionally is something that I can do. This is also quite helpful in nightmares though, I mean if your being chased by a zombie you can imagine a gun in your pocket and boom….shot it right in the head. Problem Solved.

Dreaming is just another of my many attempts to escape from reality. Something I see to do a lot of the time…but life can’t wait forever.

It can’t just be me…can it?

In life we get into bad moods (no that’s not really what this post is about, of course that’s not just me). Whether its due to people annoying you, things not going right in general, or even just getting out of bed on the wrong side. When this happens people tend to just tell you to cheer up or deal with it, which is fair enough if they want to show they don’t really care or they have more important stuff to deal with themselves. But no matter what the situation or problem, there is always someone I can rely on. That person is Ivan.

Ivan…my dear Ivan, is my beloved Ipod. Now I know what you must be thinking your Ipod has a name? And the truth is no, not until this blog post was written…but needs must. You also might be thinking how can you rely on a Ipod. If this thought crossed your mind, you have clearly underestimated the power of an Ipod.

There are many glorious powers an Ipod holds. Firstly the ability of teleportation. No matter where you are, all you have to do is pop in your headphones, crank up the volume and you can be somewhere else in a matter of seconds. A nice warm beach, the moon, a quaint cafe or for me…sitting on the sea front in Reykjavik, Iceland. Now im going to let you into a little secret. To the people around you it will appear that you are being ignorant, but that just an illusion and no ever has to know the truth.

The second ability, and some of you wont be able to believe this, but it can give you the ability to succeed in your chosen career path…just so long as its one of the following careers. Professional DJ, dancer, singer, or any type of musician (for example master of air guitar). However one song I wouldn’t recommend testing the professional singing career out with would be  ‘We all stand together’ by Paul McCartney. As for me personally the frog sections just didn’t work out…especially in public.

And on that note I shall leave you to ponder over what you can do with the power of your Ipod, as the possibilities are endless.
