Waking Dreams

Thank you everyone to came over to my blog after my Coming to a Writer’s Block post was Freshly Pressed! I guess this means I can’t complain about never being Freshly Pressed anymore, but I’m sure I’ll find something else to complain about. I really appreciate all the feedback I’ve gotten though, and I now have to change my WordPress settings because my mailbox was overloaded with notifications (very exciting though for a girl who used to pretend that junk mail was for her because she loved getting mail so much).

Now back to our regularly scheduled blog.

***

I usually have pretty vivid dreams. This means my nights are pretty entertaining, but it also means my mind can act like a little sneaky shit and play tricks on me.

Normally, I hit snooze a few times after my alarm goes off.

But eventually I drag myself out of bed.


Soon though, I realize that something doesn’t seem right.

And then I realize that I just dreamed of getting ready and I still have to get up.

Once I dreamed up getting up three times in a row. It’s pretty much the saddest thing that can happen to someone in the morning.

    That happens to me quite often. Also dreaming that it’s the weekend and you don’t have to go to work, but it’s actually a Wednesday. Great post!

    I can relate completely. πŸ˜€
    I’ll run through whole days, usually having to do much more work than should be allowed, and then wake up and feel exhausted.
    Once, I had a dream that went through a day where my entire family visited and I had to entertain them all.
    I only realize that it’s a dream when I wake up for the second time, though, and even then, sometimes, I’ll be talking to someone about “This wacky dream I had…”
    and wake up AGAIN. -.-

  3. Sadly, I have the same type of dream. Still, often my dreams are so entertaining, I wake up laughing. A great way to start the day.

    I once dreamt that I was late for work, got up & did my routine in double quick time and lo & behold… it was a Sunday!

    This has happened to me way too many times. I once even made it all the way to work, only to actually wake up and realize that I had totally overslept.

    I’ve dreamed I was through most of the day before I woke up and realize that no, I still had to get up, get ready, and go to the class I dreaded. So sad.

    Enjoying your blog. πŸ™‚

    I’ve gotten up and gotten a shower and dressed at 3 am because I dreamed my alarm went off. What a bummer that was when I walked into the kitchen and saw the wall clock. I also wake up all the time and have to stop and think if it’s a weekday or the weekend. It’s usually a weekday unfortunately. Congrats on getting Freshly Pressed!!!

    That happens to me when I take levaquin (an antibiotic), so I stay far away from it. At least you’re not dreaming that you’re peeing…that’s always bad.

    This used to happen all the time until I became a layabout writer who can sleep in until whenever he wants. Now I just dream about getting more comments on my blog posts!

    No, what is worse is when you dream you are getting ready, wake up thinking your late, and realize –oh wait, I was napping. Although, the good thing is you were napping.

    Happens to me much more often than it should. Often I’ll dream that I’m running late so when I do actually manage to wake up I’m running round like some sort of demented ferret until I realise I’m actually much too early.

    hahaha! I would hate that if that happened to me!

    I guess you’re got fixated with waking up, that it came to your dreams.

    happy sleeping for the next sleep!

    I do the dreams in cycles thing all the time, and I’ve dreamed I woke up, but I never put the two together. That’s pretty funny. I did dream it so real once that after I was really awake I was wondering if I was still dreaming.

    I once dreamt that I had looked at the time and I was already running late for work. I jumped out of bed and started getting ready really fast only to realise (once I was ready) that it was about an hour too early >.>

    You know I don’t think I have ever had that happen to me, but sometimes the opposite will happen. I will actually get up, but I won’t get ready because I think I am having a lucid dream or something. I don’t have to go to class because I am about to wake up at any minute. Of course this doesn’t happen, I am just late to class.
