Hey, I'm >>316
I had two nightmares in a semi-coherent stream.

The first dream felt around four hours long, with the first three being many quick vignettes of very stressful situations. The final hour placed me in a mountainous desert, very similar to parts of New Mexico's Florida Mountains. After walking though very familiar desert I found myself in a flat pine barren filled with dead or dying trees, and a ground covered in loose dust. The dead trees gave way to dark green trees, and later more uneven ground, leaving me in a forest similar to Gila National Park in New Mexico.

As usual in my dreams, this atmosphere was retained when my stream of consciousness was suddenly placed on a black asphalt road in what struck me as the same forest. I was standing near a shiny black and chrome object that I recognized as a car, then a figure inside the object noticed me and drove away. "Noticing" me included implanting the outcome of a statement in my head, which I understood as the figure leaving me there for something or someone it knows. The road ahead me turned softly into the trees, and a smaller road the size of a sidewalk extended perpendicular to the wider road. I walked down the smaller road, which was suddenly rain-slick without it having rained. It felt very cold and humid. To my either side were two rows of trees placed equidistant from each other, with the second row placed between and slightly beyond the inner row, creating a staggered formation concealing the fields beyond them.

From my right side came two figures from the trees. One was a five or so foot figure slightly shorter than me, with a hunched back and ears like pitcher plants. He had someone/thing else with him; a "man" with a short, fat torso, and limbs that seemed atrophied dangling where you'd expect limbs to be. I could not see a head, only a black stump of burned flesh where one would be. He was dragged by his cohort by a rope tied across his fat chest. The hunched creature said they were paid to "deal with me", whatever that meant. I was stricken with paralysis and fell to the ground, then I woke up immediately.

Once awake, I splashed my face with water, drank some, and had a piece of French bread before returning to sleep. I was far too tired to go about my day.

The second dream was again, many quick vignettes of terribly uneasy memories. It felt around six hours total, with the final thirty minutes being back in the forest with the two creatures, just before I left them. I was walking down the small road again in a replay of my last dream. The same pitcher-eared creature walked up to me, dragging the other one behind him. He approached me in a much calmer fashion than before, getting close enough for me to see how terribly painful their physical afflictions must be. Here I realized that they were once something else. The pitcher-eared one said that they were paid more to protect me, and that someone outbid their services. They spoke as if knowing where we left off, and that we were going through the motions identically.

I woke up just as tired as I was, and didn't go back to sleep. The second dream had only been three hours.

I need to find a way to calm down my dreams. I'm so tired all the time.

That's all of it. Here's a good picture of pine barrens similar to those I walked through.


S-so, nobody?

a wandering dream

with outside unknown actors deciding whether you live or die

at the hands of seemingly monstrous others

but upon second inspection you realize they are in pain and may or may not have another choice of how to live

I typically interpret dreams by taking them back one or two levels of abstraction. Yours, while undoubtedly very personal and very emotional, is also somewhat understandable considering your condition.

Not that I "understand how you feel" because I absolutely do not, but I may have touched on a core "message" of the dream, if you believe them to have meaning, which I tend to do, because I often learn something about myself in the process of interpreting them.

It was a long dream

there were many recurring themes I often dream

I was on an island, it was some sort of re-union or prize giving

I had flunked (I often dream of failing exams) and was wandering the grounds and building

I visited the shower block and the toilets were overflowing, I had to hide from other people and danger

I was followed by women

every single women there wanted to have sex with me

They were lifting up their clothes, showing off their underwear, talking cheap talk

This book cover always reminded me of the mood of my dreams. A dark, hazy, lonely world, as though you were late to something or the only one who bothered to show up. Everyone is somewhere else or nonexistent.

I remember the book being very good (mind-blowing even) but haven't read it since middle school, so I don't think adults would get much out of it. I'd probably think it was shite now too. It's great if you're a pessimistic pre-teen though, as is the rest of Cormiers stuff.


I want to live in your dream. Mine are far less wondrous.

:/ All of those soggy books

I had a library dream the other night. All of the books I came across were written by my family. My dad's book was on cocktail recipes

I am living with aphantasia and I have zero ability to picture something in my head. The only time I have a chance is when I'm dreaming but its about a 2/10 visualization (1 being absolutely nothing and 10 being very clear). I can pretty much see nothing but the only thing I can play out clearly in my mind when I'm dreaming is character movement from video games. What I mean by that is that I process in my mind video character movement (such as Overwatch) in fights with replays for possible movements outcomes. To be clear I don't actually "see" the characters I just label move speeds on some form of phantom that is recognizable to me but has almost no identifiable characteristics. Also when I do dream of other things I can only feel the emotions of the dream but not see anything. The result is a crap ton of Deja Vu because there is no perquisites besides the flow of emotion I feel. Help

Huh, I didn't even consider something like remembering how to get somewhere would be a part of it.

Shit was school hard? You couldn't have used pneumonic devices of any kind. Did they provide you help in any way?


Can you remember your dreams most of the time? Is your memory effected by the aphantasia?


Stuff like that didn't help much. I went from an A student to a D slowly as material got harder. I loved Math and Science because they had the least amount of creativity needed. But when everyone was using techniques to remember equations I was left in the dust.
I feel like I only remember dreams where I have little visual experience but then it's not much that sticks out. Maybe I do remember most of my dreams but because most of the time they are without visuals I can forget them immediately.


:/ are you working now? what do you do if you don't mind


I'm doing grunt work for my Uncle's new business before I go into IT for the United States Navy.

Have you ever had a happy dream about a person that you miss only to wake up and sadly realize that you were dreaming?

General dream feels thread.

>cute Vietnamese girl


You'll find a nice vietnamesw girl soon anon :3


Jim Webb is that you?


It happens to me often. You'd think since it happens so much I would get used to it but I never do, it always hurts to wake up.


My brain can't even give me wet dreams, just these bullshit feelings that tear me up for the next 8 hours of the day

This board is also to discuss personal aspirations too? It doesn't seem to clear for me.
Also, I apologize if I can't make myself clear, english isn't my native tongue.


When I made the board I intended it to be for dreams of the night and dreams as in goals. So far no one has taken advantage of the latter, but you can start!

What do you aspire to do, friend?


I've always wanted to be brave and self-reliant. I was raised by an overbearing and dominant grand-mother, my mom wasn't very mature (and still isn't). She was a single mom, my father took charge of it. I never had a strong fatherly figure, so I grew up as a guy with a very weak will, low determination, always relying in others to get things done, and this also made me a very lazy guy.
Since I was young, I also liked girls. Ironically, I was more confident with them, but all changed when my mom changed me from one school to another. I was bullied at the new school, so I became very insecure and avoidant when socializing. I became bitter and agresive, so I secluded myself from others, but I was actually scared of being judged.
I'm 25 yrs old, and I never had any job until the past month. I was hired to be a cashier, and was in a test period. I didn't made it through, as I was too scared sometimes and I made some serious fuck-ups. I'm still a virgin, as I keep avoiding women.
I tend to daydream a lot when I feel frustrated, scared, or sad. In my real life, I'm just a man scared of living his life, never willing to step out of his comfort zone. But in my imagination, I'm an hypermasculine guy, with no fear of anything. I'm a badass detective fighting perps on a cargo ship in a stomy night. I'm a soldier with true grit, defeating terrorists and enemies. I'm strong, invincible, and confident. And, while I know I can't be that kind of badass, I want to be a guy that most people can respect and like. My cousin is a college football player. He's awesome, but I've never told him. He has tons of friends, he has tons of girls, and physically he isn't some kind of 9/10 guy. He has no kind of social fears or limitations. I wish I was like that. Yet I feel like I'm doomed to be like this forever. But one part of me wants to keep the fight until the end. One part of me wants to believe that, deep inside me, I have more courage than I think.


Hold on is this a personal reflection or a description of half the population of any imageboard


Probably both

How often do you all get sexy dreams?
9 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


I sleep with my clothes on, but that's mostly because I'm really, really scared of getting caught naked if I have a nosebleed in the middle of the night.


Keep a robe or something convenient but do you get nosebleeds that often?


No, but when I do, they're horrible. Blood just gushes like crazy out of my nose. Stopping them on my own is a challenge.


i sleep naked except for socks. it's really comforting.

when it's cold i'll wear a shirt or something


Oh that's unpleasant

I remember some sort of flying craft coming out of the sea disc shaped but with a kind of tail. Then being submerged in the ocean next to statues of Minotaur and mermaids. Remind me of Atlantis.
Then the other night I was with this beautiful classy blonde lady in her mid to late thirties it felt like a romantic Encounter then she was worried about something because she was on trial, after she disappeared I saw her name written on a piece of paper it was Jane Mary Antoinette like the Antoinette of the French Revolution.

Last night remember talking to the lead architect of Washington DC and asked him why the obelisk was exactly 666 feet tall he mentioned something about there being lots of statues of deities and was not necessarily an evil thing.

I don't really know where these visions come from but I have a lot like this and this was just the last few days.


Was in a field with lots of horses then was holding a puppy Alsatian surrounded by people. A boy said that they found a crocodile across the muddy field so we went over to have a look.
Later found myself in a cinema sat on a row of seats directly before me was a holographic display of many strange characters in rows forming a square.. the colours were out of this world and changing. I had to ask somebody if I had taken mushrooms or something.

Day two of the 2016 dream journal. I'd suggest everyone try one for 2016, you're not too far behind yet. If you can't remember anything, just write that you can't remember anything. I'm typing mine. Is this anyone else's new years "resolution"?

i played the shit out of kirby super star on the nintendo. i haven't had any kirby dreams though :( definitely more than my fair share of fallout/xcom nightmares lol


File: 1455072437206.jpg (88.13 KB, 640x640, D_shortcake.jpg)

I did suddenly go from a nightmarish work schedule to having lots of time off (school ended, just working now) so that definitely could've been the cause…kind of fun to have dreams again.

Absolutely classic game…and yeah, this is my first Kirby dream ever. Hopefully next time I have a dream about cuddling with him or some such. I have a pretty respectable collection of Kirby music on my Mega, if you're interested. It's pretty nice to listen to on its own.


Yeah that sounds similar to what happened to me when I have dreams. Most of my dreams tend to be "realistic" at least as far as a dream could be, wish I would have a dream like your Kirby one!


It was definitely way out there as far as my normal dreams go - I've heard that just stream of consciousness writing RIGHT after waking up, like you already have the notebook in bed with you when you sleep, can yield some pretty trippy ideas. It might even encourage your brain to remember more dreams that you have. I'm sure you'll get a cool one.


I keep dreaming about girls, then it just gets me distracted all next day :/ I don't get it because I smoke weed everynight before bed. Only recently my dreams have started coming back, hard.

I've a dream to tell
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


eh, i'll spare some of the self deprecating details but i basically disemboweled myself with a shower curtain rod? it was all sharpened and prepared for me to use it on myself. the blood that was everywhere was sweat when i woke up


So a dimension where people can get shower curtain rods of self-impalement? Not a very enjoyable experience I imagine


I'm very suicidal so most of my dreams are like this. Never a shower curtain rod before

One time I dived headfirst in to a big mousetrap


I don't think I've ever had a dream where I've "died" so it seemed weird to me. Speaking from experience, if you're taking meds for depression or something it's a good idea to find an alternative


I'm not currently taking anything. I do need to find some help before I find cyanide first
