    I can always think up something nifty,

    but .... heck, the subconscious doesn't like to be told what to do *sad face*

    Dollars: I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back I was browsing through newsgroups just like you are now and came across an article similar to this that said you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment...

    I would revisit all of my old dream spots

    and the old friends I had in those dreams. I said goodbye before I plunged into hell and I miss them. I would so dream about my other dreamworlds too like MLP and star fox and I would be a pro skater every night. I would even have a yu yu hakisho world too

    Wouldn't that be great?

    It would be like having my own free cinema in my head! Lie down in bed and pick some subjects to dream about! That might make me get to bed at a sensible time as well :p

    That would be awesome to

    not only choose what you dream about but to also have complete control of your dream if that were the case the sky would be the limit in your dreams anyway.

    My dreams are straight out weird

    and confusing. Sometimes they even scare me. I haven't had a good dream in a long time and I long for one.

    I know dreaming is supposed to involve the deep

    subconscious mind, but I wish I could understand it better. It would be nice if I had some control over it. Every dream I wake up remembering is normally so weird that I can't figure out why I dreamed it. The ones that are very normal almost always lead to dajavo several days...

    The Dream Buffet

    To dream a dream is to awaken your inner self.

    Your wants, your desires, your passions are given life.

    Everyday I dream about you,

    but I don't want to. I want to forget about you! But it's kind of hard to when I get sudden reminders of you. Can someone please help me? How do I get my ex out of my dreams? I need to let go of him and let him remain a memory.
