Ok, since most of the board is about night time dreaming, let's have a thread about real life dreams and aspirations.

What do you wish to achieve?
How do you plan to reach your goals?
What have you done so far to succeed?
What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?

Tell us about your dreams anon, and hopefully we can help each other towards reaching our goals!

>What do you wish to achieve?
I'm not sure anymore. I feel as though I'm searching for something, but what it is I'm uncertain of.
>How do you plan to reach your goals?
Right now I simply need to go to college and finish my education. After that, get money and see where it takes me. Anywhere is better than nowhere.
>What have you done so far to succeed?
After having fallen a far distance cleaning the house is an accomplishment in and of itself. Soon I'll making attempts to fix everything I've fucked up.
>What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?
Lack of purpose, I suppose. Or maybe it's a lack of motivation. Life is strange after all, and it can be hard to find such things. In either case, I wish all of you anons luck in finding what you're searching for as well.

>What do you wish to achieve?
I'd like to have some stability in my life, become self-independent, and live somewhere where I can really enjoy life.

>How do you plan to reach your goals?

>What have you done so far to succeed?
>What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?
This is a step that really needs to be figured out, but I've made a couple of first moves such as making an appointment to see a psychologist to deal with a lot of mental health problems and coping mechanisms to get me through this. Also I plan on starting to put more effort into myself and those around me. My girlfriend has been there for me for so long now and I need to in return be there for her. I have to stop worrying so much about other people in the community that doesn't like me and truly let go of my past. It's not going to be an easy road but it's one that I must take. Even if I have to take "baby steps" along the way in order to better myself just a little bit each and every day.

>What do you wish to achieve?
Gain more confidence, get a good job, move out with my bf, take care of myself better and de-stress.

>How do you plan to reach your goals?

- apply for jobs
- check for affordable apartments daily
- eat more fruit/veggies, stop relying on carbs and shitty meat alternatives and make everything from scratch
- start a skin routine and get some things professionally done because I'll feel good
- take up yoga, meditation and painting

>What have you done so far to succeed?

I've done a few interviews for jobs and I've inquired about a few apartments. I've applied for a visa in another country which hopefully will help me achieve independence and give me some work experience. This weekend I'm going to get some skincare products that I've researched and I'm excited about that. I've totally eliminated fast food from my diet (I used to get a takeaway every Friday) and I don't even think it looks good anymore and I've gotten into an intermittent fasting routine. A few months ago, I bought a painting set and I've done a few paintings that someone I respect said were good. I've been taking probiotics and vitamins. I didn't actually think I was making progress but typing all of that out makes me really proud of what I've done so far.

>What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?

I'm getting a lot of rejection from companies, probably because I don't have enough work experience but every job listing requires some, it would be great if someone just took a chance on me and gave me that start I desperately need. I want to take classes for the hobbies I mentioned above but they're expensive and I can't until I start earning money. There are free classes on now and again but I get really embarrassed about my weight and it's really holding me back form things I think I'd love. I'm really hard on myself when it comes to not immediately being good at something like a new language or programming something. I'm finding it hard to break bad habits I have and I guess I have no motivation to break them either. I normally accuse myself of being lazy but in reality I think I'm just depressed. When I start earning, I'm going to start seeing a therapist again too. It's just all one big chain that I have to figure out where to break from.

I wish to make my name as a successful visual artist and settle down with an old flame in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

I'm a world away being part of the southern most penal colony of The Empire but some day I wish to see her again soon especially after she fell ill.

I apologize for this being so mundane.

Subject says it all!

I had a strange one recently, though most of my dreams aren't at all based in common reality, this one stood out not only because it felt like I was in a situation that could happen (in non-dream standards, mind you), but I was also me at an age of I think around 12-13. It also featured my little sister, around the age of 7 or 8 (her current age).

Basically what happens is that our mother who I can only assume is the last surviving of her family dies, and we were left to go live with our older adoptive sister. This is all assumed, as in this is kind of the context I was feeling while in the dream, why things were happening, why I was there. Our older adoptive sister was an anthropomorphic possum though she didn't dress the same way I believe it was based on the main character from a webcomic called 'habits' or 'clementine' as some call it on vice because she was basically homeless. We walked around a downtown area of a medium sized city as she would drink alcohol and flip off cars that passed us by, edging us on to do so with her. I would, but my little sister wouldn't. Then she bought us slushies, poured alcohol into mine and I got drunk with her while my little sister just drank a normal slushy, after that I woke up.

I liked it, felt like I was having fun in the dream in the innocent way a kid at that age would despite the shitty situation.

A very vivid and exciting one i had last night.
This isn't where the dream starts, but i don't remember anything before.
I get out of a church, to make it outside i have to go through this really cramped corridor that is choke full of people. I get to the exit but the military is blocking it, a pair of really tall soldiers, like three meters, won't let us pass. There is nothing i can do about it so i go back to the church, inside there are angels walking around, they look like old men in robes with white wings.
Suddenly, the church doors close, and demons start killing people with magic. They look the same as the angels except their wings are black and they have horns.
I run around trying not to get killed, and i think "well if i can't escape i might as well fight them", so i rush towards one of the old men to do a drop kick. But some strange force makes me miss.
Next thing i know i'm fighting this demon door with one big eye. It throws fire balls and shockwaves at me, i try to dodge them but some hit me, although they don't hurt, and it's going on about how i will never master the old art of chi channeling or whatever.
So i do exactly that, i focus my energy on my fingertips and throw a small fireball at it, and the door goes crazy about it.
But then i wake up in my room, i go downstairs to have breakfast until i realize that the house is actually very dark, my family is a bunch of faceless doppelgangers and this is all the demons' doing.
It turns into this really creepy nightmare where my house is messed up and the demons are psychologically fucking with me, until i realize i'm in a dream, and start practicing my lucid dream abilities.
I try to fly by jumping down the stairs. It doesn't go very well.

Cont.
This doesn't last long, a bunch of demons attack me in my mother's room.
So i start fist fighting them, and i'm really angry so i beat the shit out of them relatively easily.
One of them is this super muscular anthropomorphic horse body builder, i'm so pumped, angry and horny, that i push him down my mom's bed and rape him.
This is the first time i fuck someone in a dream and it feels so good. Kinda fucked up that i'm a rapist, but it makes sense since my fantasies usually involve violent rape.
I cum a ridiculous amount in like a minute, and i start waking up again, i realize that i fucked up real bad because i just came all over my mom's bed while i was sleeping.
I manage to clean up before anyone notices and i continue with my day.
I have a meal with my family, i tell them about my dream, when i get to the part i try to fly, my sister tells me in this weird tone "you should have tried to start a storm with your mind" and this for some reason makes me notice that something is very off, and that the demons are still at their bullshit.
I know the dream continues after this but i don't remember it.
I'm happy that i got to rape a hot ripped demon and i didn't actually cum irl, but i wonder what any of it actually meant.

Found a corpse floating inside the water/air mattress I used to sleep on in hot summers. I felt a vague sense of unease, but didn't think it was out of the ordinary.
Went to my garage to look for it afterwards IRL, but couldn't find it. Rather unsettling.

I had a dream last night. I don't remember exactly what happens, but it was about David Lynch and Mark Frost talking, i assume it was about Twin Peaks and dreams.
I think they were talking through a computer, and many other people were listening all over the world.
It was something seemingly completely unrelated to the series, but it was very very important, so i was writting it down as quick as i could.
It probably was intense, since it made me wake up.
While i was in the middleground between sleep and being fully awake, i was still anxious about coming back to the dream and writting what Lynch and Frost were saying. I eventually realized what they were saying was nonsense and it was just a dream. However, when i was falling asleep i became deeply worried, i believed the dream was true again. Then i became fully awake once more and stopped beliving, before believing again as i finally fell asleep.
Something funny also happened while i was awake, an image manifested in my mind. I hadn't even thought about pic related in months nor thinking anything remotely related at the time, it appeared in my mind just like that. While the image itself doesnt really scare me, it really creeped me out how it showed up out of nowhere in my head.
Anyway, i don't remember the dream i had when i slept again, but i woke up again for some reason at about 5 AM.
Just a strange night overall. Probably related to staying up late studying?

Starting with an easy one, David Lynch's work deals with dreams a lot, particulary Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive.

I'm currently sick (fever, pain, etc) and I'm having really strange dreams but strangely realistic, I usually can tell apart a dream from reality, but when I'm sick or extremely tired my dreams a far more realistic and intense.

Let's share some Fever Dreams. I'll start, I recently dream about having a fight a with a person with whom I live, I can't remember the details, but he did something to me so in return I took a laptop from his room, apparently that was really important to me and he got upset, so he wanted to punish me, he and my mother grabbed me, they wanted to "mark" me, I can't remember what exactly was but I think they had a Tattoo machine and basically to make me a mark on my arm, I obviously put resistance and barely managed to escape, now I was hiding on my brother's room, I tried to sleep and the next morning I felt that horrible anxiety feeling, I went outside to try to occupy my mind in something different, I went for a bike ride for my town and found an old friend, and we were having a little chit chat, then I wake up, my head hurt a lot.

>“REM sleep is essential to temperature control, [and] fever suppresses REM,

I found this, that's probably why every time I have a fever dream my head hurts so much.

And the most recent one, apparently I had a reminiscence of a dream I had before about some sort of "game", that memory is probably just 'fabricated' by the dream but I'm not entirely sure, it took place on my childhood house so that makes me believe it could be a real memory, but whatever.

This was the sequel to that dream apparently, it was some sort of RTS game but it took place in real life, the map was my Grandmother's house, and the players were my cousin, some sort of cyborg guy, a guy I barely can remember and I, it seemed pretty much like AoE, but the difference was the technology, apparently it had nanomachines or that kind of cyborg stuff, anyway, what's interesting about this dream is that often people will come to my house, in last dream was a burglar, I was planning to deliver him to the police, so I went to the station, told them, bla bla bla, the game me some money and food for some reason. The same night the burglar approached me and told me how he was betrayed by everyone he knew, I felt sympathy for the guy and gave him the food, in the end I didn't deliver him to the police and he left my house but became a 'friend'.

This time there was this girl who lived in the streets and apparently she was really dangerous, so I went to the station, bla bla bla, the police this time were a bunch of assholes btw, gave me little money and food to bait the girl, I ended up giving the food to other guy, some sort of sultan, and now he suspected I wanted to deliver him to the police, then I woke up and my head was hurting a lot again.

A.K.A: Share your blogpost about a nightmare you've had.

Lemme star by talking about mine, which for some reason, always seem to be disjointed for some reason. Had these yesterday.

First nightmare was me having a conversation to this sort of cockroach with human, slanted eyes with a mouth (kind of similar to David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch), about dissecting a human corpse, which was on a tiny table and was only a torso with a couple of organs with it's head and one arm cut off. As i was doing the operation, the cockroach thing kept talking to me about some non-sense i forgot, while blood kept spurting on my hands inside the human corpse's carcass.

Second one was me starting at the bottom of a sterile, white staircase (which i suppose was a hospital?), which had a backdoor of some sort. When i opened it, there was a large city road that had two groups of crowded people in different sides, arguing about some religion thing; one dude that was from the left side of the street, which was somebody i personally knew, started to fight with the other group which was on the right. Hugged him in an attempt to restrain him from getting his shit fucked by the mob of angry people, and pulled him inside the (what i suppose is) hospital's backdoor and locked it. He was lying unconscious on the floor, as i hopelessly tried to wake him up.

I'm >>705, the starfish dude.
Last night I dreamed that I went fishing with a buddy. I caught a MASSIVE parasitic worm, it was like 7 feet long. It looked like a dark brown grub, with two long shiny black curved pincers. Kinda like a bobbit (not gonna post a pic, google it). As you may imagine I tried to throw that shit back as fast as I possibly could. Unfortunately, as I was whipping it around it smacked my friend into the water. I guess it laid eggs in him or something, because later he had big lumps on his back where grubs were living just under the skin. I had to cut him open with a fishing knife and try and pull the small white grubs out, but they kept trying to burrow their way deeper so I had to reach in after them to pull them out, while still being careful not to get bit by them.

I had a bad dream that Peter Singer, Australian philosopher and advocate for animal rights, sexually abused me. I remember nothing except that he came up to me, perhaps in a fairly public place, and violently rubbed the lower half of his body on me.

It was just a dream, I am sure.

I once had a dream that was really vivid. In it I was in love with a classmate that I hadn't seen in several years. I never spent much time thinking about her back then but did think she was kind of cute I guess.

Waking up from the dream it was like my body had sent out the actual "love-chemicals" that you get when you fall in love with someone for real. For the rest of the day I stalked her on facebook and couldn't stop thinking about how bizarre it all was, that the feeling of love didn't go away after waking up. The feeling did eventually pass towards the end of the day.

Anyone ever had something similar happen to them?

Ugh… Last week I dreamt about getting married with my ex-girlfriend (the only gf I ever had), I don't know why, I don't even like her that much (not even like her anymore), we haven't spoke since we broke, we haven't see each other since then, I don't hate her, but she was a completely slut.
Anyway I felt weird, it wasn't a happy dream, but it wasn't a sad dream either, I was a dream were my ex-girlfriend pushed me to get married, for no reason. I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean anything but I felt kinda awkward after that.

I was visited by death and hell in a dream and as yet I haven't uttered this to a single soul. On recollection hades was very much alive, I witnessed a place of worship filled with parishioners with such goings on that I am still frightened to even give them breath, much less type them out for a lasting record. Frightened not of myself with its recollection , I experienced it and must live with it, but that the reader of such nightmares mighten not be able to contain the story, and that it may well be a curse best kept to myself. Or privilege? Or too personal for others. The blasphemic isn't for everybody after all. Or that this might be its interpretation by others. There is no blasphemy within this domain.

If my armchair education of dream psychoanalysis means anything than I'd suggest you to examine your behavior towards women around you and your history with them.
If you happen to be very shy and have little to do with the other sex besides pornography, then it might warp your idea of women and this idea might have gotten through in your dreams.
(Sorry if this sounds like an accusation, it's not meant as offense, I'm just speculating.)

Wish you good dreams.
