I still have high school / college dreams, or college dreams set in my high school, usually involving the first day of classes for a class I have no idea where it is located. Worst example: dreaming that I ended up in the wrong classroom and then I would be late for work because my university was two hours from home. Best example: dreaming that the only way to get to a class was by completing a Legends of the Hidden Temple-esque obstacle course.


As for the non-stressful dream themes... I wish I could take pictures of my dreams. You could probably fill a video game with the kind of surreal locations I've dreamed of. An incoherent game, sure, but it would be a lot more interesting than the locales in LSD Dream Emulator.

I still get dreams that I haven't finished or handed in my PhD thesis, waking me in a blind panic as I rush to fix it despite the fact that I graduated 2 years ago and finished the damn thing nearly 3 years ago now.

I recently dreamt that I met an online friend and my dad discriminated against the fact they were trans... :/

I used to dream a lot when I was younger and it kept going up until I got to high school, then things pretty much stopped and I haven't had a dream or nightmare since that time.

Most of what I recall isn't anything special, but it was nice to think about; things like the old town I was born and used to live in (Lawrence, KS), meeting up with old friends, and occasionally these odd dreams about what I did the next day (that I would end up doing exactly the same).

I keep dreaming about places I used to live. Whenever I dream about the place I'm currently living or anywhere similar, it feels mundane, and I often dream about places I've never been before and those are always the most fun -- it's neat, in general, when my brain invents entirely new physically consistent vivid cities or naturey places for me to explore -- but dreaming about places I used to live is... kinda just... depressing and uncanny.

For some dumb reason I've been dreaming this continuing storyline where I'm still living as a guy and miserable and wasting time on IRC with toxic people and still living in the house I lived in when I was a teenager. I'm also a college student in this dream timeline, for some reason???

It'd be pretty awful, but it took a super interesting twist a while ago where some people realized that the dream timeline I was living in was actually a parallel universe to real life, and I developed knowledge of events from the real life universe. This led to me *getting pulled into the president's limo*, having to explain how Donald Trump became president (he never even ran in this dream universe) to Obama's aides so we could figure out when the two universes diverged. Donald Trump was in the limo too and he kept trying to change the station to really shitty metal music. He was still petulant and childish and self-aggrandizing.

Also the dream me in that timeline just realized she was trans and is transitioning and just came out to her parents, so yay. Happy (happier) ending, I guess.

(I also had a dream, recently, that me and my roommates fled to Canada and I ended up getting signed up for a boxing tournament on accident, trying to beat the very best Canadian boxers and, shockingly, losing every time. This dream has nothing to do with anything, I just thought it was funny.)

I've been having much more vivid dreams than I used to the past few days, to the point where I can usually write a paragraph or two about what I dreamed about. It's a nice change. and brings me back to... ten years ago.

I have recurring places in my dreams. The stuff that happens might be different, but the place keeps coming back. They're often versions of real-world places, but with fantasy elements, and some Escheresque qualities.

I have recurring dreams, which is really odd, because generally they aren't frequently recurring. Tonight I had a dream that I haven't had in several *years*, but it went more or less exactly as I remember it.

I'm lucky in that I've only had one or two dreams ever that involved a false awakening, and the only one I can remember wasn't bad, just weird.

Dreaming about work is the worst, though.

One of my worst mornings went something like this:

1. dream about getting ready for work
2. dream about getting to work late
3. dream about waking up late and telling family about previous dreams while getting ready for work
4. wake up too early

Alternately, dreaming you're at work.

It's fun when you have to wake up for work, but you roll over and go back to sleep because you think you're at work

oh man I love this
that feeling of "okay I should go to bed" but you just don't have the energy to move so you just pass out wherever at some point

it's all too common.


Yeah, I hate when that happens because I get those moods when I have to be up early and then I can't sleep due to unrelated factors out of my control.

Waking up is probably the number one thing that screws with me during school and the like. My brain doesn't process urgency of events or make any kind of value judgements until almost an hour after I wake up unless I'm very afraid of something happening that day, so more often than not I'm nearly late because all I can think on waking up is "ah, who cares really"...

I wish I knew a solution to that that didn't involve slamming cold brew from bed.


Why shouldn't the solution involve that...?



Valid point...

I hate buying an entire bag just to use it on cold brew, though. I should get some caffeine pills again, maybe. Regardless, I can definitely sympathize with the general idea of sleep being a mess.

I can't use daylight because I'm one of those weirdos who can fall asleep even with the lights on, and I'd get woken up at 6 in the morning when the sun starts to come up in summer. The one thing I've found that works usually okay is having my phone be the alarm clock, and leaving it on my bed. Let it buzz until it wakes me up, or start playing some music until I do so. The app I've used in specific is "Sleep As Android" or whatever it's called now. It tries to guess the best time to wake you up before your alarm goes off based on how much you're moving around (and therefore, your sleep cycle).

This doesn't work very well when you're a natural tosser-and-turner, or you have someone else on the bed with you, for obvious reasons. I ended up turning that off because I prefer to get as much sleep as I can

Sounds lazy, probably, but my average is less than 6 hours a night, so every minute helps...
