This isn't a book-related post, with an awesome announcement or sad news, or any type of news, really. This is only a just-because, on the whim, feeling frisky post. A little glimpse to learn more about me, if you will.

And here it is:

I love dreams. I love any and all things that have to do with dreams/dreaming. In fact, my favorite thing to do is sleep just so I can dream some more. Yeah, I'm a bit obsessed, actually. It probably isn't very healthy, either, but I absolutely love it. I prefer to get like...12 hours of sleep, sometimes more, just because I love sleeping so much. I would give up happy and exciting plans if it meant I could sleep just a bit more. Isn't that crazy?! It's like a sickness. I mean, who does that? Who looks at their alarm when it goes off, and thinks - "How can I get out of going to Disney World today, so I can keep sleeping?" NO ONE...except me :D And I LOVE Disney and having fun at theme parks...but there is that one thing that I love more than anything -Sleep. Dreams. Ahhh, it's where I'm most happy.

That is so sad, though. There is a slight additional problem that I haven't mentioned yet...My dreams feel so very real, that I oftentimes mistake dreams for reality. Yeah. You heard me correctly.

There are countless times where I truly believe something happened, but when other people are like...What are you talking about? That never happened...and I go...Uh, yes it did. I SWEAR it did...and I think about it really hard to then discover that it had only been a dream. I even genuinely believe scenes that I've dreamt involving a book I'm reading actually happened, only to spend hours going through the book looking for it, and my friends think I'm losing it because they don't know what scene I'm talking about.

Busted.

That happens all the time to me. I'm a bit crazy. Seriously. But only when it comes to sleep and dreaming. ;) And, like I'm sure many of you have experienced as well, I love when I have dreams within a dream. You know, where you wake up in your dream, but you're still dreaming? Yep. Those are super cool. I've "woken up" from a dream into another dream, then wake up a second time, all while still dreaming.

But my favorite is when I'm dreaming, and I know that I'm dreaming. I stay completely asleep and the dream goes on, but I know 100% that I'm dreaming, and I say to myself (in the dream) omg...I'm dreaming. It feels so real. And then I actual SAVOR the realness of it. I'll touch something, or I'll like...absorb the current feeling of whatever it is that's going on at the time. It's amazing!! I love it so much.

So, now that you know this about me...Let's hope it doesn't scare you away. :D What about you? Do you like dreaming, or are you someone who doesn't usually remember their dreams after waking up? I've discovered (from discussing it with multiple guys) that it seems most men do not think they dream, a.k.a they don't remember their dreams once they wake up. It's like a guy thing. Isn't that interesting?!

Before I leave you, I even have a theme song. Mhm, this song below literally is my life's theme song, it was like an ":O omg, this is me" moment the second I heard it soooo many years ago. I've included the lyrics and you can even listen to it if you wish! :D I feel it's very "Monday" appropriate.

Anyway, have a great start to your week!

"Heart Attack" by Sum 41

Remember when there was nothing else to do, but lie in bed and,
wonder how it was always up to you, and no one else and,
Early mornings, made by warnings, what's the point of the alarm that I'm ignoring?
It's either raining, I'm not complaining, but waking up is hard to do so,

Turn my head its back to bed with no delay, can't be bothered by the phone ten times a day,
Why get up my morning doesn't even start till two?
Forget reality, waking up is hard to do.

Remember when we would hang out every day, and we would rather,
Not be told what to do or what to say, Cause nothing mattered.
Never boring, with slept in mornings, not ashamed of bad habits that I'm forming.
It's not important if days are shortened, I can't make time when nothings new,
Cause waking up is hard to do so,

Turn my head its back to bed with no delay, can't be bothered by the phone ten times a day,
Why get up my morning doesn't even start till two?
Forget reality, waking up is hard to do.

What's a day when it all ends up the same, and lasts forever?
Can't complain when there's nothing there to blame, and things can't be better.
Summer evenings, teenage grievings, got no problem with the life that I've been leading.
No concentration on hesitation, I can't make time when nothings new, Cause waking up is hard to do so!

Turn my head its back to bed with no delay, can't be bothered by the phone ten times a day,
Why get up my morning doesn't even start till two?
Forget reality, 'cause waking up is hard to do.

  1. Awesome, and no you definitely did not scare me away. Nothing will you are stuck with me now!!! Mwahahaha.

    I wish I could remember my dreams, but I only remember maybe 3 a year. It's sad really. I guess when I sleep I really sleep, like the dead.

    Keep on dreaming!
