Do the characters in my head count? Like, characters from stories I'm writing and what not, because if so, then yes, all the freaking time. I'm an escapist, always daydreaming and what not, but that doesn't mean I can't be happy in real life though. I have a decent balance I guess.

Whenever I see a happy couple, sometimes I wish that I was in that relationship, especially if one of them is someone I like. But, then I remind myself that that's not how it is, or how it ever will be, and I stop dreaming.

Or myself in past times so I can say stuff to me, what I should do instead of what I did. Then I realize that it happened and I can't change it.

I know it sounds kinda confusing ^^;

this is a very difficult question i think because it isn't really just asking if you have ever wanted to be someone else; i think it delves into our comfort levels with who we are. i mean there are tons of reasons to want to be another person. wanting what they have, envying their physical or personality traits, etc. honestly though, i wouldn't mind being a prince sometimes. prince of Spain has a nice ring to it don't you think? >w<

I feel sorry for 80% of the poll takers. I can only imagine how much you have hated either yourself or your life to even humor the thought of not being you. My gut instinct to this question was to laugh, for it seems philosophically ridiculous that you can't be who you want to be, unless it involves a different situation. But then, you aren't actually wanting to be SOMEONE different, but SOMEWHERE or SOMEHOW different (see Shudderbrush's response). To not respect myself enough to desire the character of someone else would be the ultimate self-sin for me. And if I want to REALLY change something about myself (or, rather, discover more about myself), I will.

Sometimes. But then I remember that I've got a pretty good life and that instead of moping around feeling sorry for myself that I should help someone else who is feeling that way.

Quite often. I always tend to feel pointless or like I'm wandering aimlessly through life with no place to go. I also lack any special qualities, and I'm easily replaced by other people.

I'm proud of who i am, but i wish i was a dragon. (not to brag but i'd make a pretty cool dragon). Sadly, this isnt the world for it. Even if i did get my wish(which is impossible :p), then I'd spend the rest of my days behind bars in a scientist's lab. So i guess im glad about who I am.
