I've never been one of those people who remembers their dreams in great detail, in fact I typically forget them the moment I open my eyes. It sounded fun, and I was told that in committing to the practice of writing down my dreams, I would have bigger! better! more vivid! memorable! dreams. Awesome!
Little did I know that my brain would take this little experiment to a whole new level.
At first, I would rack my brain as soon as I woke up trying to remember any little detail from my dreams the night before. Slowly, I was able to wake groggily in the middle of the night to write down the dream I had. But then. THEN I started writing IN MY SLEEP. Which is amazing. And is way more entertaining! Now, I often wake up and excitedly open my dream journal to find barely legible descriptions of the most random stuff ever. My longer entries, which I will probably share with you later, are almost always about food. Sometimes I can barely read what I scratched out on the page. For example:
"Step by step making an egg sandwich, & a soup."
And I don't remember writing it, let alone having the dream.
Here are some other gems:
"In a forest jumping to the tops of trees! Then, in a store picking out neck ties."
"Slow motion bumper cars through a tunnel."
"Side by side escalators. I'm on one and there are tropical fish on the other."
"Dead bird in my purse."
"Worms in my sleeves!! Something about fig newtons."
"Ordered a HUGE bowl of guacamole! Random man sat with us and was eating it all very quickly and making me extremely ANGRY!"
