      Thank you. It gives me the confidence to try TOTY soon I still have some personal goals to do but hopefully I'll get there.

      I broke the dry spell today! Maybe complaining on the internet helped
      Anyway, it was long and I did a ton of things - two different spells, Jedi mind control, an attempt at flying, passing through a wall, eating food.

      IndigoRose, I understand that it can be annoying but try and not think too much of the dry spells you get, because they will happen for one reason or another over time, to be sure. Usually life getting in the way, sounds about right as that can certainly mess with recall and DJing patterns for me...

      @DarkestDarkness

      Thank you and I agree. After these two dreams, I was slightly frustrated about doing nothing in my LDs and staying too confined by the location (FA room). I made a goal to be much more active in future dreams but there haven't been many opportunities since.

      @Highlander

      It's a regular thing. I am an extreme night owl. I think I actually fit into the diagnosis of delayed sleep phase disorder, although it's more my husband pushing it. My perfect time would be falling asleep between 2 and 3 and getting up between 11 and 12. Falling asleep at 5 and getting up at 13-14 is a bit too much for me and could be a reason why I have problems sleeping after 12.
      I don't care about daylight or I am used to it, I don't know.
      I've always been a light sleeper, even when I had to get up early. I sleep quite deeply first 4-5 hours and then I switch into a light sleep. Sometimes I sleep well, sometimes it's more fragmented. I wake up easily and if I do too much or start thinking too much, it can take some time to fall asleep again.
      And I am self-employed, working from home, so I can get away with a schedule like this

      Thanks to both of you again, I am happy to see that someone reads it I will add two more entries soon, I hope.
      I am going through a dry spell at the moment, life is getting in, my sleep isn't the best, dream recall is fluctuating... I hope it will pass soon.

      I can relate to the sleepwalking and questioning reality parts especially. Those thoughts have gone through my head after being lucid on several occasions.

      I do have a question about the sleep schedule shown here though.

      I'm presuming after looking at the times quoted here that this isn't a regular thing, but more at an attempt at lucidity and/or a by product of insomnia?

      I tend to sleep roughly at a regular time, perhaps up to about 9 hours or so. However (apart from WBTB) I have noticed that the morning light wakes me up and interrupts my sleep somewhat.

      A cool, analytical and detailed journal entry though.

      I suppose even when lucid we make odd conclusions so I don't know if that was a factor in the choice, personally I would have tried going through the wall anyway regardless of the fingers through palm thing working or not. Sure, it might not work too, but it also might work.

      Obviously everyone is different, but my personal experience is that while expectation plays a role in outcome, for me it is quite often not the final factor in whether or not something will happen in a dream.

      I think I'm just challenging you to try going against the feeling that the expectation is set and has somehow pre-defined the outcome, if another such opportunity arises.
