This is a dream journal.
I’ve done the dream journal thing for years. I’ve enjoyed many of my dreams, and I like sharing them.
There are a lot of categories.
Initially I started this blog solely to use the categorization system to track recurring themes in my dreams. I wanted to know what the most common themes were and maybe figure out why. Mostly a curiosity.
I like to make art.
I recently got back into drawing after a decade hiatus. I am really enjoying myself, and figured that illustrating my dreams would be a good way to expand my range a bit, since I generally draw the same things when not forced to do otherwise.
You can see more of my art on my tumblr.
My dreams tend to be elaborate, and are sometimes crazy.
Most people find my dreams a bit unbelievable. I get that my dreams are a bit more complex than most people’s. I think I know why, however.
I spent most of my life – yes, all the way up to my current adulthood – daydreaming the crap out of every waking minute. I get bored easily and have to entertain myself with stories. I always have at least one foot in fantasyland, and I suppose this has conditioned my brain to produce dreams the way it does. My brain is also a melding pot of silly entertainment nonsense – superheroes, sci-fi, horror movies, etc. It all just sort of blends together and gets regurgitated by my subconsious.
I’m really glad to have these dreams and feel a tad bit of pity for people who have mundane dreams. Those poor dumb jerks and their stupid losery dreams…
