Normally I don't really put much stock into my dreams. I'm one of those people who has tons of vivid dreams and remembers most of them for weeks
after the fact. And honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if dream recall took up half of my memories. (That's pretty lame to think about... I have more
dream memories than real life memories... hah.)
Anyways, I had two dreams last night that I can't really get out of my head. It'd be interesting to find out if others have had similar dreams, or
if anyone can provide some insight.
On a more general note: I hear it's odd for people to remember their dreams. And as someone who remembers multiple dreams a night, I'm just curious
if it actually is odd. Perhaps more people remember their dreams than others think, or perhaps because of the whole... end (possibly) coming... people
have been more receptive to their dreams.
Anyway, these are the two dreams I wanted to share:
1. I was walking back to my car with friends. Apparently it was late because my car was one of the only cars left on the roof of the parking
garage (where I happened to park in the dream). As I approached my car, I remember the scene getting darker. My friends had already gotten into the
car, and I was about to adjust my seat so I could also get in (I have a two door car, hence the necessary seat adjustment when there are more than two
people). I looked up and noticed a group of guys idling near the entrance, they were looking over at us while also trying to walk inconspicuously. I
remember feeling a tinge of "somethings wrong" and then I looked up to see one of the guys approaching me with a gun. My friends were safely in the
car, so I closed the car door and stayed outside with my purse (as though I knew I was about to be robbed). The guy got close enough with the gun and
he said something that I don't remember, although it was something to the effect of: "give me your money."
What's interesting about this dream is my reaction... it is almost exactly how I would react in real life, the only difference is: the robber
certainly wouldn't respond the way he did in the dream.
I got my purse and slightly irritated, I looked inside and said, "You're gonna hate me dude, but I only have six bucks."
I reached in and gave him the money, and his reaction was, "Oh damn, I thought you'd have more."
Then we got into an amicable discussion about how no one has money nowadays... then he walked off towards his friends and I got into the car and left.
2. I was at a dance. Similar to the commencement ball that I attended about a month ago at the Sheraton in Boston (pretty damn classy, but
ridiculously expensive). Anyway, I was with friends and I remember the crowded dance floor, the obscenely loud mainstream music, and all of the colors
of the lights in the dark. At one point, a friend of mine slipped and fell cracking her head on the floor (which would normally mean extreme brain
injury or death, but in the dream, she was fine). The problem was that she blamed her fall on me. People started to treat me differently, as though I
was an attempted murderer. The dream continued into the following day. I was angry that she would blame me for her own clumsiness, but I was also
concerned about the fact that everyone was believing her. So I decided to make a little basket of gifts to give her while she recovered. I drove into
town and parked my car with the intention of getting coffee before I went into the store to buy her a gift basket. As I walked to the coffee place, I
ran into my friend with a few other people. She acted like nothing was wrong, and introduced me to the girls she was with. After saying my name, the
girls gave me a dirty look and decided not to acknowledge my presence. This just solidified my suspicions that she was blaming the accident on me.
After I got her gift basket, I drove to her house to give it to her. She wasn't home and I couldn't find her. Instead, I ran into her mother who
started freaking out. I bolted from the house and got into my car. I could see the mother in the second story window and she threw a bottle of wine at
my windshield as I reversed out of her driveway. The house my friend lived in happened to be on a hill, so when I reversed into the street... my car
kept going backwards. I had already put my foot on the brake and switched it into drive, but my car kept accelerating backwards. I felt the rumble of
my car driving through a yard with small trees, then glass shattering as the car went through a house. I eventually ended up in someone's backyard...
all of my extremities practically numb. I tried to call the police... I grabbed my cell phone and dialed. Oddly enough I dialed 918 (probably because
my hands were going numb). So I had to frustratingly hang up and call again. When I finally dialed it correctly, I had to be put on hold because there
was only one police officer working. As I was on hold... I slipped into darkness... then I awoke in bed.
What's odd about the second dream is the fact that the girl who I supposedly wronged was a friend back in elementary school... I've barely seen her
since. I get along with guys much better than girls, so most of my friends are male... which was another reason why this dream was so odd to me: I was
friends with too many girls.
Anyway, besides specific comments on the two dreams I shared. I'm more interested in hearing other people's experiences and opinions regarding dream
Do you remember dreams often? Every night? Multiple dreams a night?
Lately, have you been having more vivid, and therefore easily recollected, dreams?
