      Freaky sentence found in dream journal

      So, along with the dream journal I keep on here, I also have my physical pen-and-paper dream journal. I wake up, and as soon I can I write down what I remember dreaming. I was flipping through it last night, and stumbled upon something that kinda freaked me out. I had written about this dream involving my ex in which he asked me out and was really prodding me to go out with him again. At the end of the entry, in a super-sleepy scrawl, I had written "I didn't want to see the movie, just him."

      I don't remember writing this. I don't even remember this feeling being part of my dream. And I have no idea what the bit about a movie is referencing. Nonetheless, there it is. I guess my subconscious took over my writing hand. It might also have to do with writing right after I wake up. There's probably less chance of filtering memories.

      Anyway, has anyone else had this sort of experience, where your subconscious takes over while you write about dreams? It freaked me out when I first noticed it, but now I think it's really interesting.

      Yeah it isn't too rare if you do what I do when writing. I'll be so tired I use super short words that I understand right then, but later on forget what I meant. Usually I can remember writing it and remember what I meant though.

      Maybe he asked you out to see a movie? In which your opinion in the dream was you didn't want to see the movie just him. Which is your opinion in your dream, and may or may not have anything to do with your real feelings. Going on a date, going to a movie seems to match up with the dream. It is possible that you just forgot that part of the dream, and forgot writing it, even though you knew at the moment you wrote it.

      It's not unheard of for people to wake up briefly in the middle of the night and say/do something, then completely forget about it by the time morning comes. I'm not sure I personally have ever experienced this (or maybe there just wasn't anyone there to tell me about it). I have been completely confused by some of my older, more vague dream fragments, but that's to be expected as they were usually fleeting thoughts or feelings I wrote down in hopes of remembering a more complete dream.

      I'm glad I'm not the only one who does this. At least yours was legible.

      I get this a lot as I find it easier to record my voice in the middle of the night and write down in fuller detail in the morning, I normally end up with between 6 and 12 recordings, and there is always 1 or 2 that I either can't understand through mumbling or have no memory of making the recording or the dream I was talking about!!
      Here's one from last night.. Recording

      Never had such experiences.

      I usually waited for hours before I decided to write about my dream. Guess I was deciding whether or not was it worth penning down.

      Whoa, that's a really interesting dream journaling method. How did you come up with it?

      I've actually had a similar experience...I've jotted down notes about dreams and fallen back asleep....then in the morning I don't even remember writing it. It's possible that you wrote that down while still half asleep.

      Sounds quite strange. Gives me the urge to keep a physical dream journal just for this reason.
