    You Would Be The Star!

    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.

    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.

    Still Working On It

    I'm still working on this. I've always wanted to experience lucid dreaming. I find the whole concept to be pretty amazing. I've read quiet a few books on it, and even tried keeping a dream journal, looking for the dream signs, taking all the necessary steps to induce one. It just...

    It Would Be Cool

    I don't remember dreams very often, so I think it would be awesome to choose what I dream about. Of course, at this point, I'd choose to dream about my current crush. Just because I can't be with her in real life doesn't mean I can't in my dreams.
