Do your dreams make sense?

Most of my dreams just don't make sense. Most of the characters who appear in my dreams are all strangely mixed or very odd. I really can't even describe my dreams in words. It will be harder for me to describe my dreams than to describe Picasso's paintings.

Once in a while I do dream something that can at least make sense enough for me to tell someone about it regardless of how simple or complex the story sounds. But, most of the time, they are just outright weird or strange.

I only remember my dreams when I am depressed (I suffer from recurring depressions of about 2-3 weeks at a time), but when I do they always have a sort of internal plot-line. The same people, places, whatever recur, but things change over the course of the dream. I don't know if these are different REM-cycles or if I just dream continuously, but it's kind of weird how real they seem sometimes.
The recurring theme is usually being back in high school and somehow missing a class so I can't graduate (which happened - I failed GYM of all things, but I took a follow-up exam to graduate).

My dreams rarely have plot continuity. Even when they do, the things that occur are completely nonsensical.

I love it, and I try to write them down as often as possible.

My dreams are often adventures. I had one last night where 2 friends that I play Left4Dead with turned up at my house in preparation for a real zombie apocalypse. It was rather run, we drove around trying to find weapons as we quickly scrambled up to a bunker on the moors.

Mine don't make sense but they do follow a plot at least.

Haha my dreams are similar. I think last week I had a dream where me and my friends were finally going on a roadtrip to New York that we were planning on and on the way, we somehow ended up in London. :confused:

Heh, sounds like fun. I sometimes wonder if these kind of dreams have a purpose. Like our subconcious is telling us to live out these slightly realistic dreams :D.

Also had another dream last night where me and my sister were detectives, we had to investigate some kind of brothell with a rather illustrated and eccentric owner. The whole thing was really bizarre, an open plan brothell as it were. My sister got captured by some bad guys so I had to rescue her. Had to smash through some window, slide down a well placed metal sheet and faced off against the final boss. Fun!

That depends, I can have normal dreams, then I'll have a weird one. I.E. I've been chased by a t-rex, then when I got on a ferry to cross the lake, the T-rex started running across the water. Dream or not, that was an OH SH%T moment :eek:

When I was a kid I used to dream in episodes, the next time I had a dream it would pick up from where I'd left off.

I wake up looking forward to the next one :)

I either remember them when they're,
A, Nightmares. (I get some pretty complex nightmares, they got more complex as I got older.)
B, Really Really Random.

Awesome!

Most of them do, the ones that don't are forgotten almost immediately.

Most of my dreams don't make alot of sense. Some do, and some seem to be familiar, like I've had the same dream before. Once in awhile, those "deja vu" dreams have me wondering if it was a dream, or something I remembered that actually happened. When I'm fully awake, I realize it wasn't a memory, just a dream.

I dream about being Batman.

So not only do my dreams make sense, but they're better than yours.
