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!

Sounds like you're just blaming other things instead of the real problem: yourself. You can only improve yourself when you recognize what is wrong.

Well, I'd really like to be the king of my own nation, or a great adventurer, or a genius scientist, you know, all the things I'd daydream about when I was a kid. But they're unrealistic. And, since I started growing up, the fantastic in my dreams has declined. Now, I only daydream about a few things.
1: Systems. Systems of many different things. Like, I make up my own government for a fictional nation, or a own language. Usually without a ton of actual story. Just world-building.
2: Stories. Now, while the grandiosity in my dreams has dwindled, a bit is still there. And some of these stories aren't even that grandiose. But the difference between these stories and the ones of my youth is that these never involve me. Always a character who's separate from myself.
3: A mundane life. These are the only dreams I can really have with myself as the main character, anymore. And they go pretty much the same. Get out of NEETdom, get a job, an apartment, I spend some time imagining what the apartment would look like, Etc., then they diverge, a bit. Most, here, just end in me wallowing in alcohol and killing myself. But why is that? These are my dreams. They're supposed to make me happy. Why do I kill myself, even in them? I don't know. Now, some end in me becoming a hermit, building a cabin out in the woods of Maine, or somewhere, near a great forest, and a beautiful cliff by the sea, with a cold sand beach down at the bottom. Basically, I imagine myself living in my dream area. Then, in some of them, when I'm feeling really good, I imagine a woman coming into my life. I'm not often able to dream of women, because my self-inserting dreams tend to be more realistic, and I can't imagine a woman ever caring about me, but sometimes, I'm just feeling good. I marry her, raise a family, we move to Maine.
And that's my true dream, my end goaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

No, I'm a motivated and intelligent person, and I'd do many good things in life if I wasn't prohibited from doing so.
>You can only improve yourself when you recognize what is wrong.
Correct. I believe in the power of the individual, and see that many groups work together to make individuals suffer rather than thrive.

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.

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.

Going shopping. Small stores and shopping malls. I've had so many dreams where I do that. I'm not sure I've ever bought anything though. Another is being in public in my underwear or otherwise under-dressed and being uncertain whether it's socially acceptable or not.

My dreams repeat, not over nights but within themselves with slight changes. I also tend to feel a strong sense of deja vu the second time around so I'm aware in some sense (I feel deja vus very often in day to day life)

Like I'll experience a scene with my parents, talking or similiar, something else happens and then I somehow go back into talking with my parents again.
Sometimes it seems that I'm aware of it and I noticed more than once that my dream self said something along the lines of "I wanna see that again" or "I need to repeat that". Like studying.

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.

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.

I had a dream where a giant golden starfish that slept underground for a billion years woke up and waged a war against humanity. It smelled like sulfur, and all the little legs on the bottom (see pic related) were long and agile and had suckers on them, like octopus tentacles. It was fucking creepy as shit.

Had this one Saturday night.
Some girl and I were laying in my mothers bed, don't know where she came from or how we got there, but, we were going to do the deed. I started caressing her and then went in for a long kiss. As I was kissing her, I heard all sorts of demonic shit in the background and when I finally get up to look at her, she just smiles and turns into ashes and the whole room goes black. My dream also blacks out at this point. It seams that I usually jump from dream to dream, but I vaguely remember seeing her in in some of them as well.
Turns out that she's some sort of demon from the Underworld coming to wage war on the overworld. Then I jump to another dream. Now I'm in some sort of classroom taking shelter from the chaos with a bunch of other people. The demon girl apparently left the bloody head of a cow in the room as a symbol denoting I am not to be messed with by other demonic forces. The professor throws it outside because it's stinking up the room and shit. We begin moving the tables and chairs around to make a barrier when a strong thump comes from the ceiling. Demon girl breaks through and drops down like those super hero landings all with fist on the ground.
She sensed that the sacrifice wasn't with me anymore and asked if I was okay and held me in her arms. It was at this point were I had a much better look at her in detail. She looked older than me (21), at most 35 yo, and 6'2" judging by her towering over me. Long black hair, green eyes, and literally half naked. Sort of like the way Slan from berserk dresses, tits free.
Demon girl is getting ready to head out again to the fight, when I tell her to stay and to stop the battle. To which she says, "Don't worry, this will be my last battle, just for you. I'll be back."
She never returns.
After a while the outside world goes completely fucking silent. I walk out to check and everything is grey with ash and rubble everywhere. I think I was channeling a bit of Dresden during WWII. I eventually find her dead pale body and pick it up. Carry her away princess style and the dream ends.

God I wanna see her again, I've never felt this much emotion in a dream before.
tl;dr - Random girl almost 15 years older than me I wanted to bang but didn't bang turns out to be demon and then she dies.

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.)

I can't say that I've ever woken up inside a nightmare multiple times. I've had false awakenings before, but those were always very mundane.
A nightmare that really stood out to me was one I had when I was about 15 or so, when my room was next to my sister's room. I dreamt that she was some kinda cannibal necromancer that had killed my entire family and cut them into pieces arranged around her room, and reanimated or kept them animated. Then she spread her legs and there was nothing there except clear plastic piping like you'd find in your plumbing or something. There was just such a sense of disgust I had when I woke up that I wanted to puke. I could smell the viscera and gore and feel it in my hands, see it squirming and gasping. I have a feeling it really messed up my psyche because now I have very involved dreams about my sister and death

No.704

I get in little loops, but it's never a big deal. Just falling asleep inside a dream and waking up on different "layers." If it gets really confusing, sometimes I end up thinking I'm in the real world and end up living for months or even years, and make relationships and learn and grow and all that, but then I wake up for real and only 10 real minutes have passed. It's discombobulating.
