    I'm sure we've all experienced a moment when we come out of slumber and discover it was only a dream. It can be so disappointing. Sometimes we close our eyes and try to will ourselves back to the dream. It can happen but usually it doesn't. As disappointing as it may be, turn...

    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...

    There is this one guy I have had a crush on

    for a while, and I have dreamt a couple of times that he asked me out. I felt ridiculously happy in the dream and we were dating, but then, he said he wanted to talk, and I woke up, wandering what would have happened every time. It gets rid of the happiness and leaves annoyance...

    The struggle is real.

    ..like I remember when I dreamt of having an iPhone (back when I wanted one) and when I woke up I actually for a second got out the bed and started looking for it lmao

    How Ironic

    It seems like the best dreams always end quickly. Nightmares usually drag on as well as repeat themselves over and over again. And sex dreams occur so rarely they're almost not even worth mentioning.

    I dreamt of everything I had ever wanted.

    It was like a cruel trick waking up and realising it was all fake.

    Don't you hate when you're having

    such a wonderful dream that is so lucid and seems so real? You even wake up in your dream and it's all still there, so you're convinced it's true! Then you really wake up and it's all gone and you realize reality is back. I hate my life.

    So. I had this dream

    where I had met THE perfect guy. It was weird though. I knew that he was perfect, but I didn't let him get too close and he didn't allow me to get close to him neither. It wasn't so much as his looks that I'd cared for, but who he was. He was everything that I needed...

    Or a good movie ending.

    Or deep sleep. Because society never improves. It just adds new crap to hide bad men. Men who want lords over slaves. Disgusting and sad. A huge disappointment. Humans can be so much better bipeds. But the owners of rulers wont try.

    Why Is This?

    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.

    Lucid Dreaming Before I Wake

    I have always been able to tell when I'm dreaming, and have usually had a certain amount of control over what happens in my dreams, but only in the past couple of years have I been able to truly lucid dream. It's awesome. It's like having a universe all to myself where I'm in...
