Ever since I can remember, I've had extremely vivid dreams. They are so vivid, in fact, that there are times I can't remember if something was a dream or actual reality. That's a bit scary.
Lately I've been dreaming of being back in college. I usually have missed the entire semester, and have only a few days or sometimes, even one hour before class to finish an assignment or study for a big test. I also have dreams where I know perfectly well that I have two degrees, but since I have nothing better to do, I decide to go back to college and get another degree.
I think these recent dreams - and they've been nearly every night lately - have something to do with my writing. I feel an urgency to get my novel published, and I think that is coming through in my dreams. I'd dearly love to talk to a dream psychologist about them and figure it out.
The only problem? I wake up from these vivid dreams feeling exhausted - and that's not good.
But I find the process endlessly fascinating. People I haven't thought about in years will sometimes pop into my dreams. Other times, small things I did during the day will appear in them.
Do you dream?
