I have seriously had dreams where I go to work at a job and that's it.
I have dreams where I mow the lawn and pick up dog shit. I wake up feeling robbed of sleep.
A few of my pals have a reoccurring dream where they are punching a mean dude, but they can't punch with ferocity.
Once asked my Father if he had a reoccurring dream, and his eyes went blank and he said "There is a white rhino... *Takes deep breath* And it chases me"... *goes back to normal and takes a bite of a hamburger*.
When I was a pre-teen, I saw my best friend after he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a .45. My reoccurring nightmare is seeing the same scene, but with different family members and friends.
Always the same. Same house, same furniture, , same gun, same lighting, same splattered brains and blood. I know as soon as I enter the house (in my dream) I'll see a dead body, but don't know who has been offed. I know to expect brains and blood on the floor that have a purple and brown hue to them, I expect to see an open mouth and open eyes with a pale body, but the person is always someone different.
I like what Mitch Hedberg said about dreaming,. In short, he said "I'd like to have a dream where I watch myself sleep. How peaceful would that be? Instead I'm helping my ex-landlord construct a go-cart".
I do keep a "dream journal", and if you're creative, you should too!
Sometimes while asleep I have a dream about a great joke, or maybe a "sick beat", or any music in general. I jot that stuff down as soon as I wake up as I know I'll forget it by the time I have eaten breakfast.
Successful people who compose music do the same. You hear something great in a dream and will lose it if you don't write it down, immediately.
