Laura Driscoll looks forward to what's to come in her rewarding inner life.

Although her day job doing data entry at a Mahattan financial services firm is not glamorous, exciting, or even remotely interesting, internally speaking, Laura Driscoll of New York City leads a life that's second to none.

"It's so much fun!" said Driscoll of her rich inner life, prattling off just a few of the many highly amusing puns that constantly bounce around in her head, and never fail to lift her spirits - like the one about "head space" that invariably comes to mind when a brainless coworker alludes to the bizarre mental condition in which he so often finds himself.

"I'm not surprised he's always in a 'weird head space'," chuckled Driscoll. "In fact, I'm pretty sure all he's got in his head is space. It's gotta be a virtual prairie in there!"

Driscoll clarified that her rich inner life isn't all "pun and games," however; it also entails a great deal of powerful philosophical analysis. "Free will is something that gives me endless food for thought. I mean, why do I even start thinking about it to begin with? It's not like I decided to." She smiled and shook her head. "I'm still sorting it all out."

And in an age where many, like her, who have meaningless full-time office jobs that barely pay the bills, struggle to find any real purpose in their lives, Driscoll says that she considers herself extremely lucky. "I even came across a new affirmation the other day that makes it even more pleasant to live in my head. I can't wait to see what's next."
