How Do You Live Your Life Seriously

There’s a famous variety show; lots of Tokyo University students are on the stage.

In the show, one Today-Guy, talked that he was studying inside Disneyland while other schoolboy and girls are playing.

Guests asked why you don’t like dreamland such as Disneyland which everyone like. Then he said he doesn’t have interested in dreamland because he is busy for living in his real world.

Everybody applauded because his saying made sense very much, and so did I.

But, at the same time, it’s also true that his sense was not the majority feeling.

People need and enjoy fantasy, more or less. And it also connected with imagination. The power of enjoying fantasy might be one of the important skills to live in the real world.
