On the norm my dreams are usually full of made up people,
crazy size mansions,
enormous food portions (most commonly pancakes and donuts),
and friends from my childhood. In my dreams I always know how to fly,
jump to extreme measures,
and tell off any villian that comes my way.
I love that they are completely mixed up places that I don't remember getting to, and skip from place to place so quickly and randomly that seperate dreams throughout the night morph into one.
Most people hate having nightmares, I just hate waking up in a panic, forehead dripping with sweat, clenching the covers to save your life and then trying to calm yourself down mentally so that your not afraid to fall asleep again; then once you do calm yourself down, your pissed off the next morning because you lost that extra 25 minutes of sleep that it took to fall asleep again.
But regardless of all that, I love dreaming so much that I don't even mind the nightmares. When I was little I had nightmares a lot. (I blame it on all the scary movies I begged my dad to watch) But whenever I had a nightmare I'd try to remember it & write it down because I thought thats how they come up with scary movies in Hollywood and one day I could submit my nightmare to the Hollywood directors and become rich. I know it sounds funny but it always made me feel better. My favorite dreams are the reoccuring ones though. The ones to you can try to change and manipulate if you realize you are dreaming in time. The past couple of days I have had some of the most unusual dreams. Dreams I have never really experienced before. These dreams are so life-like and real. I am dreaming of people I see and things I do on a regular basis just from day to day life. For example, I had a dream that I was combing my hair and putting it up in bobby-pins. Very simple indeed but when I woke up I was wondering where all my bobby-pins had gone, searching my covers trying to figure out why they had all of a sudden disapeared from my hair.
That was just one dream. As the week progressed, the dreams got deeper and more detailed. Just like in the movies (perticularly inception), I had a dream, that I was dreaming. Now I have had a dream like this before but not one that was so meticulous, in order; & organized. In the first dream I was asleep in bed and I was dreaming of my everyday routine. So when I woke up, I was still asleep. When I woke up for the second time, it literally threw off reality for awhile. I was so turned around and mixed up that I felt like I was loosing my mind a bit. Sounds daunting I know, but it was actually fascinating when I came to to replay what happen in my head. For the first time, in a long time, I was anxious and nervous to fall asleep last night. Sadly this morning I woke up and remembered nothing from my night of restless slumber.
Nevertheless, I have discovered a whole new realm of dreaming. Loosing touch with reality may be the coolest thing ever hahaa.. =]
I dedicate this post to Christopher Nolan and all your
brilliant ideas. (writer and director of Inception)
