    Awake to take in the view...

    The webs from all the spiders...

    Slept 7.5 hours last night. I've been lacking sufficient REM sleep lately, having not slept enough for the majority of the week, and I think that's why I started dreaming and woke up about 30 minutes later, then fell back asleep with no recollection of dreams for the rest of the night. Weird how that works -- I'll have to do some more research.

    The one dream I remember was from that 30 minute period shortly after going to bed. I was at home home, as in my parent's house, which I only go to during breaks from college nowadays. There were spiders all over the place. I'm freaking terrified of spiders. D: The other weird thing in this dream was that my dad was nervous just like I was, when in the waking world he tells me to stop being so scared of things like that. Yet that wasn't enough to clue me in to lucidity. But it was close. Ish.

    I need a new reality check. Checking my watch hasn't worked in years, and attempting to fly worked a few times, but it simply hasn't occurred to me during a dream. And I'm not doing the trying to breathe with your nose plugged thing, because the idea of not being able to breathe scares me. o.o Maybe I'll try the one where you push your finger through your hand. We will see.

      One very subtle RC you can practice is telekinesis: attempt to move small objects with your mind. It might not work, but if it does you definitely know you're dreaming, and it has the advantage that if you happen to be awake you can do it in public without any outward sign. (Although pushing your finger through your hand, or any other solid surface, can also be done very surreptitiously!)

      Ooh, now that's an idea. Thanks! I had never considered telekinesis. But it would be more obvious than checking my watch, and easier than attempting flight. I will give that a try!

      It would also be more subtle than checking my watch. People used to always ask me why I checked it so often, and when I tried to explain lucid dreaming to them, they would usually either get really confused, or get really weirded out. I don't know why. Different people; different passions, I guess.
