I've Got The Adavan

I'm a daydreamer. Not in the sense that I sit and think of frolicking in the countryside. More that I can just get lost in a random thought about anything. A wall, picture, or sometimes nothing at all. Adam likes to call it oblivious. He can talk to me and I'll look right at him but I'm not listening to a word he's saying. It's not that I am not interested in what he's saying, it's that I've been lost in thought in the middle of thinking about something else. This aggrivates him to no end and has caused a couple of fights between us but  I'm still of the opinion that while I may zone out once in a while, should I also sit patiently and wait for him to talk so that there is nothing in my mind and I can give him my full attention? He'll probably tell you the answer to this question is yes.

It's not always been this way. As I get older I get lost in my head. At work if I have time to just sit and do nothing I often find myself staring at something for minutes on end thinking of random things. I call it "stuck." It's during this time that I find myself most calm and come out of being "stuck" rather relaxed. It's like yoga for the mind and even though it's annoying to some, I enjoy my "stuck" time.


  1. but sometimes it's not ok to be "stuck"! it does amaze me however, that you can replay everything in your mind and answer my question or tell me what I said!
