    I hate that moment when a dream feels

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

    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...

    Especially when it's like sometimes you want to

    happen, or it leaves it at a cliff hanger and you are just like what the hell. Take me back.

    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.

    Ugh...why must this happen?

    I've dreamed about turning into Christopher Walken and Danny Trejo on numerous occasions but sadly the transformation scene is always near the end and I usually wind up waking up from them. And with the Walken dreams, I always feel disappointed when I wake up to find it was...

    The part I hate the most is

    when I wake up before the dream concludes! Sometimes I end up forgetting most of it and that is worse. Damn, I wish my reality compared to my dreams, that would be pretty cool.

    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 i had this dream where i was walking with

    this girl, we started holding hands and in this dream we had known each other for a long time. When we started to hold hands she started to get closer to me, then she just rested her head on my shoulder. I had a tingly feeling inside and it felt good, until i woke up 😐

    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...

    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 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 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...

    waking up from an awesome dream? What sucks is that I always wake up right before the dream gets to the good part! It's like if you were watching an episode of a really awesome TV show that ended on a cliffhanger, and then find out right after that the show has been cancelled...

    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.

    dreams especially if its a good dream because I love my dreams, my dreams are something special in my life, its telling me a story and I don't like to have anyone disrupt it because I feel like writing about it sometimes and I want it to be a good story.

    so frustrating! last night I woke up 3 times,

    ruining an amazing dream about her. each time I rolled back over to sleep, the dream started from the beginning, not exactly the same each time, but very similar. Woke up this morning frustrated and irritated. This does not bode well for the rest of the day.
