    I had a dream where my eyebrow hair was thinning and they were going to disappear completely. I was freaking out and afraid of how weird I'd look.

    I had a dream last night in which I was trapped in 2-story library with a group of people (that included Steve Buscemi), and we spent the bulk of the time fighting off zombie dogs & wolves.

    I dreamed that I was a guest host on the MSNBC show The Cycle. I was to interview Mark Hamil. He was made up by some expert makeup artist to look like he did in A New Hope so he was an old man whose wrinkles were smoothed out by makeup, he had his 70's blonde hair, and was even sitting there in his Tatooine costume.

    We joked back and forth and he made a joke about Star Wars being over and done and I joked back by rolling up my sleaves and challenged him to combat, "You feeling jumpy, Skywalker?"

    I am having a weird sleep pattern as of late. I go to bed at 7 pm. I wake at 11 or so as if I had just closed my eyes. Sometimes I get up and hit the web sometimes I do not. Either way I pass back out perhaps and hour or two later and have a long night of what seems like dozens of dreams. The alarm goes off at 4:30.

    I was on a volleyball team of 15 vs 15. The damn ball came to me 3 times and I failed ot get it over the net. I then recalled, "Wait a minute, when last I played this in junior high I was awesome at it!" From that point forward evertime I hit the ball I either scored or caused our team to score and I was an even more devestating server. Final score, 20-3.

    There is a girl I knwo in RL who wandered into a dream where we were in command of a submarine(Virginia class). We had just rescued our crew who had been hel captive by terrorists. She went below to ready torpedoes while I steered the sub into position. FIRE 1! The terroists stronghold was blown to Kingdom Come.

    Does anybody else still occasionally have dreams about still being in school, despite the fact that I'm 36 and don't have to worry about that kind of stuff anymore?

    You are looking too much to friends for advice. They can be more psychologically manipulative than you know. You already know the answers, you are just trying to get too many opinions on your decision. Doesn't sound like the last one I gave you?

    Not sure if it's being sick or the meds I'm taking, but really vivid dreams the last few days. A couple with still being married and at the miserable stages during the end. I'd almost feel guilty at the relief I felt upon waking, but not.

    Last night was being locked and or lost in our local zoo with my kids ( who were both strangely preteens) and having Steve Irwin guiding us out. He kept wanting to go in the little pool with the baby rays, but we knew that was no exit. Then when the gorillas escape, he wrestled them while we ran to the kiddie train, jumped on and finally got out.

    I had a dream last night that I was at this weird church,standing in the back and all of a sudden a guy shows up who looks like a cross between a guy I used to have a relationship with and a guy I want to have relationship with.He looks at me with a look of adoration,picks me up,and asks,"Can I go out with you?" Then I say,"Sure,wait,I'd have to ask my parents" which is totally weird because I'd never say that,I would say yes and screw what the parents thought.

    Well, I haven't been out of school for that long, but yes, I'll occasionally dream of that cursed place, too. And usually it involves getting scolded for not having turned in homework. Or I'm late. Or I'm taking an exam. It's never a good dream.
    What are your school dreams about?


    I used to frequently dream about being pursued, especially in my early teens. It was quite obnoxious. Then I found a magazine at my grandma's house with an article about how to consciously change dreams (while sleeping/without waking up). I didn't believe it would work, but I tried it nonetheless. It involved keeping a diary of your dreams. I did that for several months and I actually made some progress. While I can't say that I can consciously change my dreams, I have gained the abilities within my dreams to deal with anything bad (read this as: "I gained super powers."). Makes dreaming much more relaxing.

    Last night I dreamed I was running with the doctor, but we got separated and he found a clone of mine before he found me. All I was left with was a tardis blue trench coat.

    Just the usual stuff, like being in class and thinking why I am here, because I graduated and all that. I wonder if it's guilt-related, because I never took my final exams (My high school had a policy at the time that you didn't have to take them if you had good attendance and kept your grades above a certain level, and I did all that).

    I don't think you should feel guilty about that. It's not like you skipped or cheated. If the rules allowed it, then I think you don't have a reason to feel guilty about it. In fact, my American High School had the same rule (back in 2008, at least). I know many seniors that only had to take one or two finals. If you always got As in your class, you didn't have to take the final exam as a senior.

    Maybe it's simply because we spent so much time in that place. My high school life was not dreadful at all (even though I made it sound like it was bad, I guess). But it's a long period of time, plus it covers your entire childhood and teenage years. It can shape who you become as a person. Maybe that's why it will still show up in my dreams. Whenever I'm feeling insecure I will dream of moments in school that made me feel the same way.

    I had a dream a couple days ago that I had made two doctors' appointments at the same time and kept trying to make it to them but kept getting delayed or lost on the way. Part of the dream was that my sinuses were closing up and I couldn't breathe - and then I woke up congested. Also because I was running late, I kept checking the time and it would be different every time I looked. I've intentionally used this tactic as a lucid dream check before, but this time I didn't clue in at all that I was dreaming, I just kept getting frustrated that the time was changing and I didn't know how late I was.

    I had a fragmentary dream last night about Inspector Javert and cell phones.

    He was not amused by them.

    I had a fairly intense dream where a passenger airplane made an emergency landing in Metlife Stadium, where I was watching a football game. I remember that my younger sister and I were interviewed about it on national television, but I can't recall what either of us said.

    The weird part of it, (besides the whole plane crash landing in a stadium part) was that Metlife had apparently teleported 15 miles to the east and was in the middle of Central Park. Also, the game was the Kansas City Chiefs vs the Oakland Raiders in the middle of New York. I also have no idea why I'd willingly pay to see both teams. :p

    I was apparently some form of antagonist, though perhaps not outright villain. It was 1890's and I was using a hot air balloon as a getaway vehicle while Sherlock Holmes chased me in another hot air ballon with a sidekick that may or may not have been Watson. I managed to perform a maneuver over a mountain and landing on a rock shelf while using deflated balloon material as an extra sail and I left them behind as a floating dot on the horizon as I landed in what may have been a dream land of old timey London. My female accomplice restocked our provisions and we set off for some kind of treasure pointed out via a map. I awoke then.

    Well, I had my first JCC dream last night. It was a nightmare, so I don't want to go into detail, but I was/had died of cancer, but I didn't get to say goodbye to all you crazies. Tunick, you were sweet enough to make a memorial thread. Whew. It was an intense dream. God forbid it should ever actually happen. Hopefully this place is long dead by the time I kick it. :p

    I was having an argument in a dream last night and I screamed (in real life) "YOU ****HEAD," so loud that I woke myself up. My roommate wasn't too thrilled either.
