dreams are really weird because you don’t question the reality of them at all. like you could be being chased by a giant banana mafia and the only thing on your mind is ‘fuck, we gotta get to a blender pronto’
So I have dedicated this blog to my weird and wonderful dreams.
You're welcome to submit your own and I'll post them.
It started with me strolling about in Sealife Centre. I was watching the hippos swimming along in their cute tank looking very pleased with themselves for owning such a fine establishment when my best friend - let’s call her Tash - ran up to me and
said shouted ‘I need your help! The dolphins have no dresses!’ Of course, very puzzled - although not too much considering the peculiar antics of my best friend - I proceeded to ask her what the bloody hell she was on about. She then continued to explain how her wedding - wedding? - won’t be perfect if the dolphins don’t have their dresses. Within 10 seconds I had learnt Tash was getting married and as far as I knew, dolphins were the chosen bridal party. Ignoring my perplexed expression, she grabbed my hand and led me out of the centre.
Then somehow we ended up on a small harbour on a not-so-sturdy looking platform with a large white rose decorated arch at the top over looking the waves like you’d see in a very premeditated Nicholas Sparks finale scene. The ceremony was very, very short and I’m not sure the colour completely complimented them, but the dolphins looked exceptionally beautiful and proud in their pastel pink gowns.
- Every human dreams. There are tons of people who can’t remember their dreams when they wake up, but they still get them
- Human beings spend roughly around 6 years of their lifetime dreaming
- Sometimes we dream outside of our REM sleep (Rapid Eye Movement)
- Thousands of years ago, the Egyptians were the first to create a dream dictionary in 4000 B.C.E
- We roughly spend around 1/3 of our lives sleeping
- People who suffer from a personality disorder lack dream activity
- Our brains tend to be way more active when we sleep, than when we’re awake
- Humans tend to have around 3 to 7 dreams a night. We dream around 2 to 3 hours in a whole night
- 90% of the dream is lost the first minute we wake up
- Men tend to dream about men more than women, and women dream about people of both genders
- Drug withdrawal can cause more intense dreams. People who also quit alcohol and smoking experience heavier dreams and nightmares
- You can lucid dream for up to 30 minutes if trained properly
- It’s impossible to dream when you’re snoring
- Babies don’t dream of themselves until they reach the age of 3
- More women than men experience deja-vu in their dreams (eg. you have been in the dream before)
Most epic dream yet, it was a dream within a dream.
It started when I was just laying in bed on my phone, then my iPod e-mail noise went off so I went to see what it was. It said because I had just turned on my phone, I had contracted a virus - but not just any virus - a virus that’s named ‘exorcism vrs.’ What the-? Thinking it was just some stupid chain mail, I deleted it. Well, I tried to; it wouldn’t delete itself, it just kept popping up, so I opened it to see what it actually contained. Woah mistake. I saw what appeared to be a dozen photos of exorcisms, including the infamous Emily Rose, what a delight. (Naturally) I was a little fucking confused, so again I attempted to turn it off but it kept popping up and, scared, I ‘woke up.’ But alas, I had not really woken up! (Enter second dream dimension.) In this second dream I ‘woke up’ in my bed, looked at my iPod, and the photos were still there reading ‘exorcism vrs.’ WHAT. Then I actually woke up, really did check my iPod to see there was no e-mail but a friendly message inviting me to ‘meet new Christian singles near you.’
Now there is no way on Jesus’ left bum cheek am I ever watching The Exorcism.
