      OMG I haven't had any worthwhile dreams lately. I had one where I was skydiving and I landed in front of my grandma's house... One where I was outside and went down some stone steps in pitch black darkness on stilts made of toilet paper tubes and I found a laptop computer when I made it down the stairs... and a bunch more that I don't even remember. My memory for my dreams has been pretty shitty lately. I'm not really stressed out or anything but school has started back a few weeks ago so maybe I just don't have room in my brain for dreaming *and* remembering them. We'll see.

      OK, I remember last night's dream. I was at the Superbowl, but I don't think I was supposed to be there. I was on the bottom level and it was all indoors. There were different rooms and I kept looking into them. I found one and it was right on the fifty yard line. The Bears were playing (they're my favorite team). It was like a conference room and there were people in suits all over the place. I sat down at a table and a guy in a suit offered me a slice of pizza. I wasn't interested in the pizza and the guy in the suit told me that if I wanted anything I should ask the waiter and I could have anything I wanted... there was no menu or anything. I said I wanted a quesadilla. After looking around the room for a while, one side was just a solid window that was like right where the action was, the waiter came back with my quesadilla. I don't remember much else.

      OMG. So finally I wore myself out completely after running errands all day yesterday. When I went to bed, I was telling myself that I would remember my dreams over and over like a mantra and more often recently I've been looking at my hands and telling myself to remember to do that in my dreams. From the lucids I've had already, it's not the realizing that I'm dreaming that I was having trouble with that I need to do RCs all the time, it's the stabalizing that I need to work on, and I know looking at your hands helps. Also when I was falling asleep I thought about the nature of dreaming in general and that I'm a whole person in my dreams and I never really have gotten the chance to realize that in a lucid. Ugh. I better add goals to my signature. Anyway, I had another lucid last night!! YAY!!

      The Skank is at my House

      We were in a house that doesn't exist IRL and the skank went out the window to smoke a cigarette. I crawled out the window and sat on the roof with her.

      The Lucid Bookstore and the Dorm Room

      I'm at the bookstore that I work at and I am walking through the area where the textbooks are kept. I keep seeing money everywhere, just little piles of cash, sometimes change. I'm picking it up and I take a look at the bills and they're not your typical denominations, they're like $4 bills and stuff. This makes me realize that I must be dreaming, so I become lucid. The first thing I do is get a sense of myself and look at my hands. Then I look up and walk out of the bookstore and into a college campus. There are people walking to a dorm building and I follow them. I open the door and go up several flights of stairs following this one guy to his room. In his room he has some beakers on his desk like from a chemistry set. As I was going to ask him to remove his clothes (just to see if I could while I was lucid) I lost lucidity.

      I think so far that's the longest I've been lucid.

      UGH! School started this week and my sleep has been soooo offffff. I'm only remembering fragments here and there, not really even worthy of posting. Ex:

      a spider spinning a web that resembles puzzle pieces, working at an ice cream shop, being in a huge tent during a rainstorm at night, closing a door that wouldn't sit right in its frame.

      I'm hoping that once I get back into the groove of the semester my stress level will reduce and I will be having better dreams. wish me luck!

      My dreams haven't been as vivid as they usually are over the past few days. I don't know why. I'm not stressed out or anything, I'm getting plenty of sleep. I hope my body and my brain figures it all out.

      Car Wreck Cops

      I'm at a post office I think. I'm in line behind a man at the counter who has sheets and sheets of stamps. Just like a huge stack of them. All different designs and different values. He's just trying to mail three letters and put some stamps on them. I pointed out to him that he should use the smallest denominations first to get rid of them.

      He leaves and it's almost my turn at the counter and four police officers walk into the building. I look down at the floor and see that I have a grocery bag full of fireworks at my feet!!! I'm sure I don't want to get caught with this. The cops point at me and tell me to come with them. I leave the bag of fireworks and go out the door with them.

      We get outside and we're in the covered entry way to the building. It's maybe thirty feet long and the parking lot is to the side and at the end of the entryway. I see a couple of guys walking towards the parking lot. It's night. I look into the parking lot and don't see my car where it was parked. The cops tell me that my car got wrecked and they took it away on a tow truck. I ran to the guys walking away. I grabbed one of them by the collar and demanded he tell me what happened. He didn't understand English and he was Asian. I was mostly mad because my camera and my ipod were in the car, along with the rest of the fireworks.

      Last night I watched the Golden Globe Awards. I think that's why I had this dream.

      I just remember a little bit... I was getting text messages from and interviewing celebrities. No one in particular that I recall. I was exhausted when I went to bed, so I bet that's why my recall was not so good.

      I wanted to start out by quickly mentioning some of my reocurring themes in my dreams, just so I had them jotted down somewhere:

      -schools (that I've attended and imaginary)
      -casinos (usually doesn't start as such, connected with airports)
      -houses that I don't belong in (like I've broken into)
      -hamsters (usually LOTS at a time)
      -driving straight up vertically
      -amusement parks
      -grocery stores

      That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm sure I'll add to it as time progresses. This is just the historical information that I can remember.

      EDIT: I have started school again and I have a busy schedule. I try to update as often as possible, but you may see just titles of dreams with no details filled in. Just be patient and keep checking back, the details will come as I have time. Thanks!!
