Sometimes I get weird stares but I have conversations with myself and I keep myself honest. It keeps me from losing perspective, because if someone in public does something stupid and I start laughing, the voice in my head catches me and reminds me that I do stupid things too sometimes. He'll lecture me with the classic "You compare your blooper reel to everyone else's highlight tapes, so you need to keep in mind that everyone has bloopers". To be honest sometimes it gets kind of annoying because I can't shut it off but it works. I've always got myself.

throughout the day, I'm always imagining that an interviewer is asking me all kinds of questions. usually the premise is that I'm like a world-famous celebrity (normally a musician, but sometimes other people too) and everyone wants to know about my thoughts on contemporary events, my struggle with depression, and my deepest fears. a few times, I've started crying in public because my "interview" was getting really personal and I was coming across some very intimate realizations about myself.
there's probably something wrong with my head. I don't think normal people spend all day in some dream world where they're a rock star, or a novelist, or a religious figure. my brain keeps switching into these grandiose fantasies, non-stop. it gives me a false sense of importance, which sometimes interferes with my life. I just wish my brain would shut up for a couple hours a day.
