But as the alarm clock rings and the dream fades, reality kicks back in. The me that wakes up from the dream is much more passive, quiet, and sometimes even a little nervous when it comes to the little things. While one may cross the street next to this real version of me and swear they hear a song coming from my direction, it'll be more at a quiet volume rather than a loud and proud one. When it comes to dates, I normally either have to be prodded or the other person has to ask, as I can be incredibly shy about doing the asking myself. And while I might go out for karaoke when able and while I hang out with friends and roommates, I tend to keep what I say to a bare minimum unless I find myself at decent comfort level with the person/people around me. The person in reality and the person in the dream are almost exact opposites of each other in every way.
But whether in reality or a dream, the morals and views I keep are the same, and the interests I have are equal. The type of guys that I tend to fall for in both reality and dream are also the same as well, of course.
I tend to have a balanced optimistic and pessimistic view of life and everything that it holds. It's quite likely that you'll always see my more optimistic, relaxed, and more outgoing side than the other, though. I like to take little moments to stop and look at the beauty that is held within even the smallest things, such as the shine coming from an emerald green leaf or the the fragrance coming from a nearby flower as I walk by.

I also tend to go between being somewhat active as well as a homebody. I enjoy staying at home and gaming or watching movies...but at the same time I enjoy going on a refreshing walk, bike ride, and I enjoy roller/ice skating, skiing, riding jet-skis, singing/karaoke, and the like. I tend to be open to a lot of interests and enjoy most things that I try. If I could pick a sport I'd want to learn, it'd be a tie between soccer, lacrosse, and hockey.
When the motivation/inspiration strikes me, I tend to be very much into writing some type of fantasy-adventure story. I've attempted diving into other genres such as horror, Sci-Fi, and the like...but I tend to enjoy delving into the many different faces of Fantasy the most. While I tend to not get too detailed about most of my stuff (since they're still in the beginning stages), feel free to ask me questions about them if you'd like! =)
Guys that can make me smile and laugh are what I like quite a bit. Outgoing and fun guys are great, as are guys who have a clear head and are down to Earth. Creativity is always sexy to me since I like to delve into my own imagination a bit. Honesty is always a turn on, as is caring for your body in at least some extent. I eat all types of food, but I make up for it by being active. My ideal guy out there would be the same way. No, that doesn't mean they have to have a wicked six pack or anything to that extent, but if I want to go for a run/jog or something equally physically testing, I expect that they're able to keep up.
On a random sidenote: Every time I hear/see the words "Greek Myths," I think of the episode of Recess where Gus lost his glasses, and ended up doing a report on the "Green Mints." Just a heads up, I'll probably have some sort of classic-TV reference mind-set for a lot of things out there.
On a second sidenote: I realize that on my Favorites section, I list both newer Star Trek movies, TNG, and DS9 as favorites of mine. While I do enjoy these, the movies, and am showing interest in Voyager and the classic show, I don't identify as a "Trekkie."
On a third sidenote: If you can guess where my pen name comes from as well as the characters that both parts of the name come from (a hint: One was mentioned in the beginning, the other wasn't really mentioned as much except in the games), I'll owe you cookies.
