I daydream a lot. Ever since I was little, listening to my grandfather’s stories, it’s been easier for me to retreat to the worlds and people in my head. Over time this tendency became a little more dangerous as I internalized far too much which probably exacerbated my depression and anxiety. I also missed out on so much due to missing little things or using it to avoid people and social situations.

I’m a little better at living in the world rather than my head. This tendency sometimes helps me understand and appreciate my students’ quirks. It also means that I tend to make connections in my head that have difficult logic chains to unwrap using words. We all have those brain to paper and brain to mouth difficulties. It’s not so bad to try.
