I had a dream where I had a crush with a cartoonishly large and wide guy who was aloof and mean-spirited that didn't want to be with me at all (I wanted to gain his approval) but I constantly tried to force a friendship with him by having very repetitive conversations with him that always follow a formula (I think the formula was ' What do you think of X?/Do you do X?' then I'd talk about what I thought of X) that even he pointed out. Is my brain calling me a gay simp?
Many of my recent dreams have revolved around the middle school I went to over a decade ago. Feels like unfinished business or that I didn't grow out of that phase.
growing up, a good portion of my dreams involved fishing in a beautiful body of water
i had these dreams so frequently i recently took up fishing as an adult
Turning your dreams into reality.
I know it's the exact opposite, but does anysushi else never have dreams? Or at least, don't remember having them. I feel a little alone and weird on it.
It's a very very rare occurrence for me to dream in my sleep. Wonder what causes it or how common it is…
I was that way for a long time, but when I started journaling the few I remembered (maybe one every few years or less) I started remembering them more. I've heard of other people having the same experience as well. I also had some scary dreams that woke me up around that time, which was very unusual for me, and might have also primed me to hold onto dream memories more.
It makes sense that it takes training for the brain to bother to carry 'junk' memories from dreams into the conscious day as something meaningful, though i don't have any evidence on that.
Yeah I'm the same. Remember dreams upon waking at most 1 time a month, if even that. Otherwise sleep is just a timeskip void.
I kinda like it the way it is, never wake up in a bad mood from weird nightstuff, easier to deal with breakups since I don't need to be reminded of exes in my sleep.
Lately I dream a lot about going to school. I haven't set foot on a school in over 10 years irl.
I don't know how common is this but, while I'm not a "lucid dreamer", I usually can't tell when I'm in a dream, but I just play along, very rarely do I try to change things.
I don't know how common this is either, but sometimes my dreams are like movies. I'm just a passive looker. Sometimes my dreams are even cinematic, with good photography and all (in waking life, I could never do that). Once I was even making fun of my own dream-movie.
>>8756>usually can't tell when I'm in a dream
[Err] Usually CAN tell I'm in a dream
I don't remember dreams to often, but the a lot that I've remembered recently have been about running away from an spider.
One was me trying to throw something at a spider in a bathtub, and the spider jumped on to me and I woke up flailing around trying to get the (non-existent) spider off me. Another dream was me in a parking lot with a spider on the top of the opened trunk of my car. IIRC I was running past each time trying to blow it away or something. There was other weird stuff happening in the dream but I can't remember it. There was also another dream in which I was running away from a cat instead of a spider. I found the cat in my room and it was extremely small, around the size of my hand. For a reason I can't remember, I pushed it off a counter or something and it got mad with me. The rest of the dream was spent with me running away from the cat, with it biting me in the end, and subsequently waking me up.
I don't remember much of it anymore, basically a cute girl started talking to me and we hung out for a bit. Even in my dream I felt like it was all a ruse like the few times girls showed "interest" in me in high school. It felt nice while it lasted though.
Had a dream a few nights ago about working at a japanese restaurant called, of all things, sushichan.
A few days ago:
Dream one - I was walking up and down dirt mountains with me mum, I went to a lake with a pier where one of my co-workers was, swinging above water. I think it was either some kind of gymnastic thing or a swing. Probably the former.
It's quite typical for me to go up and down mountains in my dreams.
Dream two - I was in my place of work, a grocery store (god help me), and my father left me alone or something. A few figures appear and it's my brother's old friend. I grab him by the throat, seeing him as a threat, and he does the same to me. However, when I finally get a good look at him, I recognize him, and the mood because more friendly. He said he has a present for me, so I follow him and a girl, who is probably also one of my brother's friends, to a table. He said he knew I hadn't had any good meals lately, so he and the girl made me some food. The girl's meal was Korean, but I don't know why. I then shed some tears and thanked them gratefully.
I really needed that, honestly.
Dream three - Spongebob and Sandy Cheeks from the show "Spongebob Squarepants" are in a room. I don't remember much about the room, but the atmosphere became red or the room became red later on. I believe I was Spongebob, and Sandy had been possessed or was the devil. She grabbed me and pinned me, reaching down into my chest. She was trying to take my soul or possess me. The room had become red and you could feel the demonic presence. Sandy's voice was deep and menacing, but I don't remember what she was saying.
I don't know why it was like that, honestly.
My dreams are mostly terrifying or a personification of my fear for the future. Even in dream land, where I'm supposed to be in my own mind, my mind tricks me and tortures me. This is my life now. Is this really okay?
I don't have nearly as many dreams as I used to. How do i have more?
Try to remember the dreams that you had, either by writing or thinking about them. Eventually they become more casual.
Sleeping well also helps
I tend to dream most vividly when I'm really sleep deprived but I don't recommend that.
Had a weird dream where I explored a white-and-blue forest with a jetpack, found a cartoonish-looking, balloon-like pig inside a pink-and-blue doghouse, picked up a cat next to a train station, and named the pig "Gaga" and the cat "Grey".
Then I went inside the train station which somehow turned into an airport. The security lady let me in without even checking my passenger ticket and I flew to… wherever I go (I didn't even know where is it lol) while hugging both Gaga and Grey in the passenger seat. I also remember very vividly I brought my laptop bag (but without laptop inside) and a small fanny pack with me.
It's a weird dream, but the scenery on the white-and-blue forest is weirdly nice. I also like the fact that Gaga is just so cartoonish-looking I can squish it and it bounces back up.
Xenomorphs gonna eat me. I don't remember what else.
Well, you already have a starting point, you can flesh it out from there as you go along and the pieces will start to fall in place because you'll be correcting yourself if it was wrong.
Ok Sushis I just had a dream I went on a road trip and an acquaintance had used my address to buy drugs but it was actually a scam and they had to pay a lot of money. Actually this happened a few weeeks ago in the dream world but I'm just hearing about it now. I said, you used my address to buy drugs?! He said yes and that was that. I was walking with him and someone else through the town. Now this town had a whole lot of bricks. Brick buildings, brick roads(there weren't really any roads, just the ground was brick), and a whole lot of train tracks that just went through the bricks, yknow, like at a zoo or amusement park, and sometimes a random red light(there's not standing fixtures where lights go on) and a small train car would pass. So anyway, I was walking along the bricks on this night(the town is my original destination), there were no clouds, and the light came on. I struggled whether to go, I went on the tracks, car was coming so I went back off, but then no I decided I will go so I run across the tracks, trying to step on the brick part and not the supposed electrically charged metal. So I went across, "I could have died", I said jokingly. We are walking, and we come across some friends that I haven't seen in a very long time. I am elated and want to talk but then I wake up. It would have been nice to talk to them, at least in the dream world>>8824
I don't usually remember my dreams but lately have been doing better, today I slept at one or two in the morning though
I don't dream often but I had my best dream after smoked weed (I don't smoke it anymore). I saw my 5 years old me asking me for play arcade with him. We played a game that had a white spongebob punching weird ghosts just like in Pac man or something like that. I guess it was the best dream that I ever had.
I had a dream a youtuber I liked got to popular and I had to start hating them because I was a super hipster.
Don't know what I was thinking because besides 1-2 videos they aren't that big. Psyhco analyzing it it was about my insecurities. I've always wanted to do some animations for their skits, but never did because I was lazy/to insecure. Some other people did make an animation and they got kind of big. I was also a hipster shit as a kid.
Not content related, but anyone else have all their dreams in third person? Like watching yourself from a distance. Been like this as long as I can remember.
You can practise lucid dreaming…
I've attempted that a couple times in the past but every time it happens I seem to realize I am dreaming, and then excitement drives into consciousness. It's pretty frustrating.
That aside I seem to suffer from a recurring nightmare of my teeth falling out one by one. I try to place them back in with mixed results. No idea what it means.
I also have this. Like you're a fully immersed spectator watching the dream. Everyone I've asked about this claims to dream from a first person perspective, so I'm not sure what to make of it
Gee yes of course.
Worried about something? You dream of that something. Want to pee? Dream about making peepee. Horny? Dream sex.
I'm trying to lucid dream. I'm stuck on the first step were you need to repeat an action randomly so you can ask "Am I in a dream?". I keep forgetting so I haven't gotten far>>9061
I've always had those. In fact I don't think I have any dreams in first person. I always watch myself do stuff.
Don't know why this happens. I've heard personality and culture can affect if memories are in third or first person so I wonder if that's related?>>9107
This is actually a pretty common thing in the lucid dream community. You just have to calm down and count to ten a lot so you don't wake up.
I had a phase years ago where I tried really hard to get into regular lucid dreaming. I only ever got 3 of them (maybe a 4th), but both the process of getting there and actually having them was a very interesting experience that I'll keep with me forever. Not life-changing or miraculous mind you, but certainly cool.> I'm stuck on the first step were you need to repeat an action randomly so you can ask "Am I in a dream?".
The one that worked for me was pushing my thumb into my palm and seeing if it went through or not. Having a boring graveyard shift retail job helped with that because I could just idly do it as I was sitting around daydreaming and waiting for customers. I assume you're already keeping a dream journal? If you're using a phone or a PC to do so I'd recommend doing it with pen and paper instead.
Is that like a dream diary?
I had a dream were my teacher emailed me saying she understood why I was so stressed out and fell behind in class.
I'm currently doing bad in class and I had a stern email from them. Good god was that freudian
Yeah, just write down as much of the dream as you can remember as soon as you wake up. You'll start remembering more of your dreams and apparently that's helpful to the process.
I dream a lot. I get a lot of reoccurring elements in my dreams, like trying to find clothes before going out, being back in a school setting (with the school looking a bit different than reality), being at a store looking at games or movies, my house being larger/grander than it actually is. If I'm driving, 50% of the time, I end up going off a cliff, but land as if it's a cartoon, car gets a dent and I just drive off safely.
I usually write down my dreams but only if they're action-oriented. A lot of times, my dreams shift halfway through. For example, I had a dream I was in Samus' suit, but I was still myself. I'm going through a dark apartment building and start shooting into the dark. Monsters are gone and so is the suit and now I'm just looking through a room digging around for clues as if I was a detective.
I dream a lot, I think I always did, but when I tried to learn lucid dreaming I started a dream diary and since then I remember them a lot more. Before that I thought I'd rarely dream. With time you notice imagery that reappears, for me it's mostly water (the sea, floodings or rivers/lakes appear a lot in my dreams). I also dream a lot about friends and family.
Lucid dreaming isn't nearly as fun as people make it out to be and I personally prefer not lucid dreaming. My dreams feel more "authentic" if I didn't.
I used to have nightmares in the past, where the constant theme was "being unable to help" or being isolated. One of the reoccuring ones was me being tied to a pipe in a concrete room where I have to watch as two kidnappers execute people I care about before me one by one. Really glad I don't have those anymore.
I was walking down a crowded hallway in a hurry. Faces of all sorts of people I didn't know flew past me, but I stopped and pulled a tall person. "Hey," I called out to him. He was so tall I only saw his suit and tie, but when I looked up I realized he was my friend I hadn't seen since high school, but he aged a bit. He looked upset. He said that he was kind of in a hurry. Suddenly his face lit him and he smiled at me. He said back to me, "Hey!" He asked me what the population of the U.S. capitol was. I said "400 million" and he said "that's right." He left very quickly down the hallway. I watched him leave. Suddenly the Nietzsche quote rang in my head "would you be prepared to re-live your life in exactly the same way?" I woke up in tears when I realized I couldn't.
This month i started having these dreams /nightmares where a formula of sorts happens:
>am in a cartoonish setting (or its made clear im in some sort of show/cartoon/anime)
>hang out with irl friends
>suddenly friends disappear and i meet a girl
>we hit off and start going out and having fun
>suddenly again some sort of event happens and i lose sight of said girl
>something gives a sign that something awful happened/is happening to her but i cant do anything
>start noticing im in a dream
>last track of an album starts playing
That last part weirds me out a bunch, up till now i can remember Moses Sumney's "Self Help Tape“ (last track in their album "Aromanticism") and Señor Loop's "X-mar" playing (last track of their first album)
A cute girl put soap on me in the shower but I had my normal sensibilities so I wanted to tell her to stop from embarrassment but I didn't want to tell her because she was a girl I used to have a crush on but then she told me she was a lesbian. She started with my back but when she came to my front she got on her knees but then she noticed my armored titan so she got angry and she left and I feel guilty and sneak into my room as she complains to other people about the experience.
I haven't left my house for anything but a haircut, the dentist and to the vegetable store since quarantine last year, so 10/10 must say. I hope this doesn't awaken something in me.
5/7 nights this week I died in my dreams or was left in a position that would have killed me if it was real life. The last one, I saw someone I graduated high school with. He was homeless, and asking for change on the side of the street.
The girl I was with kept pleading me to just leave him alone but I felt bad and wanted to give him something. I start searching my backpack to see if I have a dollar to give him, when suddenly he stands up and stabs me directly in my abdomen. Right underneath my stomach, and he runs away.
I remember it burning and also feeling numb. It didnt hurt for long, I think I was in shock. I managed to call 911 but I couldnt say anything. I had already lost too much blood. I just remember laying on the street hearing the operators voice in my ear.
Then I woke up.
Im sorry I know this isnt very chill, but these dreams are traumatic and it does help me to be able to post it somewhere.
if all those other dreams are like this too, i can't imagine how stressful it must be.
i hope you're doing okay in your day-to-day as i hear that an anxious life in general can lead to frequent bad dreams.
How has your day to day life been? Have you been stressed out or something?
Thanks friends. Yes I have been very stressed. The pandemic forced me back with my parents. On top of just feeling bad I'm in my mid 20s still living with them, their is almost constant arguing and screaming. Or dogs barking….
In terms of good news I haven't had those dreams since I posted this.
I think I recently had a dream where I browsed image boards in front of my gf, which I would never do in real life. After I woke up, I was half sure it was a dream, and never mentioned it.
I just had a dream where I was hitting it up with a girl I used to go to school with. I was legitimately sad when I woke up. Back to loneliness…
I occasionally dream but last night stands out to me. I dreamt that I was in a cabin somewhere and a vicious bear came to my door and tried to get in. I have a rifle chambered in 458 SOCOM in real life,and I happened to have it with me in my dream so I tried to shoot the bear with it. After what felt like an eternity and struggling greatly,I finally pulled the trigger and killed the bear. Two more bears appeared and I quickly shot both of them,without any of the struggle like the first shot.
I've had really scary life or death situation dreams like that before, they're very odd but I always remember them strongly.>I have a rifle chambered in 458 SOCOM
That's extremely cool
>Post "I like pineapple pizza" on sushichan
>"User has been perma-banned"
What a weird dream. I don't even like pineapple pizza
I dreamed that my dad tried to give steroids. He said he was proud of me for the progress I've made. I didn't want to give up my natty card but I accepted them anyway. Very strange dream that doesn't fit the tone of this site but it's remarkable enough I think it's worth posting about. >>11287
Time for ban. Mods!! :)
I've had two sex dreams in a row about past female acquaintances. I'm currently in a long-term relationship with an ok sex life.
I find it amusing that I have these dreams but try not to dwell on it too much.
Anyone get those dreams where you're certain you've dreamt the same thing before you aren't sure. Like you're not sure if what you're dreaming is real, if its fake but you have dreamt it in the past or if that itself is a false memory that you're dreaming about.
Not sure what you're talking about but I have a few recurring dreams, including one really specific ones where I start running for some reason. It's not always running from or to something, sometimes I'm just running for some reason. My strides get longer and longer and higher and higher, and at some point I start specifically trying to go higher
Then I start soaring, each time I hit the ground I just kick off and spend upwards of a full minute in the air pseudo-flying.
It's a really strange dream and I have no idea why it's recurring.
A few months ago I had a dream where I realized I was dreaming, but I was certain that the dream was a recreation of a real-life memory. I kept noticing all the little differences between the dream and how it actually happened, and it wasn't until I woke up that I realized that the dream was completely ridiculous (specifically, Amelia Watson was pulling me along a wooded path on a skateboard) and never actually happened.
I'm gonna repost my dream on sushi because lainmin's cronies deleted it on lainchan
I had this dream recently where there was this queer lolicore/DnB artist and they got really frustrated when someone asked for their pronouns. Later in the dream, I found that they had committed suicide and I was really struck down. A friend brought me to this great big concrete wall that had all these names listed on it, painted, scribbled, carved. It realized it was a memorial, these were all the trans and queer musicians who had taken their own life.
I dropped down on my knees in despair, a pitiful heap of a fleshy angry prism, wailing and thrashing on the ground, completely and utterly inconsolable.
Then I woke up, quiet and still in my lonely bed, crying for real, missing my friends, missing my bf. i don't wanna ++ the statistic.
Dreams are what happens when your brain decides real drugs have got nothing on what it can do at will
I don't usually dream but every time I do its either a dream where people die or its very surreal
I just dreamt of a JRPG where the last section of the game is timed and you need to rescue your friends from the end of the universe and fight the big bad, but there's not enough time to rescue everyone. Not sure if something like that existd
I had a dream that there was a red message in the messages section saying that sushichan was going to have a page limit
Then somehow I bumped the announcement thread from the last thread in the board, idk how
this is too sad to think about as a real game. you should still be able to rescue all of your frens if you play your cards perfectly, perhaps even from early on in the game and you get the true ending, otherwise it's too sad…..
I like my media bittersweet, but I guess if you were someone very very skilled you could save everyone.>you should still be able to rescue all of your frens if you play your cards perfectly, perhaps even from early on in the game and you get the true ending
There's actually a game that does that, but still, I like some bitterness to all of it.
>>11349>there's not enough time to rescue everyone.
Broken age has a concept like this, but it's just a mini game used as plot tool not a core mechanic.
I had a dream like that too. My brain somehow knows when I'm about to wake up so it puts ends to my dreams, surreal and non conclusive often. One of them was a character in my dreams saying "You have to come back into the dream world and help us", they did need my help tbf. Felt bad after never having visited them again and I had another dream with them. Last dream I ever had of that world
Just had a dream that I was at my job fixing an IT problem. It as at the point that I was waking up but I wanted to fix the problem first.
Dude I took a nap and had a dream where I was walking through a mansion of some sort and there was a decently hot, vaguely white woman with shoulder length wavy hair who would try to seduce you and stab you (and I knew if when I was walking by), and when I walked by her she grabbed me and said "hey you're totally my type let's go out", exact words. Before I could so much as say "thanks but" she tried to cut my head off but I caught her hand and she seemed duly impressed. I remember being impressed by how fast she got that fucking butcher knife out too and told her as much. Then she told me that I'd passed and I walked away but not before hearing her say the same thing to someone behind me.
