    hahaha that moment when you try to force

    yourself back to sleep so you can see what happens next.... I have only been able to continue a dream after waking up maybe 6 times in my life!

    and this has been a frustratingly common

    experience while developing dream recall, although I do achieve lucidity on occasions

    I usually smoke cannabis at night,

    so I don't normally remember my dreams, but last night I had three separate dreams, I can only really remember the last one. They all seemed so lengthy, but beautiful. I wrote down the last one, and I just remember laying on the floor in this room, inches from this women, and we...

    Sadly I cannot recall much of my dreams

    when I wake. Many of them must have been good though as there are tell-tale signs!!

    I have a lot of really fun dreams

    and no nightmares, or at least none that I remember. The only sad part is the abrupt awakening if they were really good as I am left with a feeling of wanting more. This is especially true since I am a lucid dreamer and it can be hard to control that state of dreaming while...

    Especially if that awesome dream happened to be

    your first lucid one in which you were in control of. Nothing like that sense of overwhelming freedom and finally getting the hang of flying when suddenly you wake up because you're TOO excited! Despite this, I was very happy throughout the rest of the day.

    I had a fun dream last night.

    A lot of things happened in it, but the best part was at the end. I apparently had magical powers. I took off running and changed into a crow. I got to fly around soar through the air. It was kind of awesome

    I love having zombie apocalypse dreams.

    My favorite one was really long but I'll tell you about my favorite part. My group was at a hotel for a while and then we had to evacuate. We evacuated to a hillside. Then I realized I left my charger at the hotel and my phone was at 4%. We were at the underground place and my...

    That dream I had was very cool.

    It was a trailer from The Amazing Spider-man 2. It was SO accurate, that it showed Electro saying, "So selfish", and The Green Goblin saying. "But you BETRAYED ME!!" with Spidey's suit from the movie. The colors after the trailer was suggesting that the movie would be on Starz...

    I Don't Wanna Wake-Up,

    I Wanna Be A Walken - I have lots of dreams in which I turn into Christopher Walken or a role he has played and these are common and sometimes it is Walken himself that turns me. And yet the changes are soooo nice, all of Walken's traits, mannerisms, and memories...

    This is the detailed version of the dream.

    As I was writing this down, I wanted to capture every emotion I felt and the tiniest details I could see. Nothing was spared. This is as close I could get to the raw nature of it. You know how sometimes in most dreams, you play the role of the observer? Or sometimes you just...

    I had such a great dream last night!

    I could feel myself lifting out of it, stating to wake up, and I was mentally trying hard to grab anything I could to stay in it. It was like someone ripped the roof off the house and started to vacuum everything out! Nothing I held on to helped keep me there. *sigh* it was...

    I've had countless of awesome dreams.

    I just hate when something or your own body wakes you up from dreams like that. Too bad you can't have those same dreams again when you go back to sleep.

    Two days ago, I had such an awesome dream.

    I were a master student in the Nederlands. Felt so excited til I woke up and realized that it was dream. A nice one. But that's okay. It means I will still pursue for that. I will make this happen soon on this year

    I dream a lot, and it's rare

    that I have a bad dream. I just hate waking up in the morning and being sad because all of my dreams are fun and awesome. I get to do so many things in my dream and when I wake up, my happiness vanishes.

    I hate it because I very rarely have them.

    So when I do, I'd appreciate if I could finish it.

    This happens to me all the darn time.

    It frustrates me to no end! I have such awesome and vivid dreams and just when I'm getting to the good part I wake up....really? I wake up only to remember certain scenes from my dreams. I wish I could finish my dreams and remember every detail.

    One of life's annoying things!

    Getting woken up and try to get back to sleep to carry on having that awesome dream but it's gone forever...The only thing thats good about it is you could imagine and finish off the dream yourself by using your imagination so creating the rest of the story and journey of that...

    Almost all of my dreams are just like Hollywood

    movies. You can find Sci Fi, horror, adventure and how can I forget some romance, though in b & w or maybe in sepia mode. Of course I feel bad after waking up that I have to wait for another day but nothing comes for free :p

    so real then... You wake up and all of a sudden reality hits you.
