Mmmm sleep is awesome

Yep, I just woke up about half an hour ago. I slept like a log thanks to my wonderful meds. It's so nice not to wake up every couple hours because of some horrific nightmare.

A little trivia, we actually have many dreams over the course of a night, but only remember what we were dreaming the moment we woke up. And, out of those many dreams, we have many more nightmares than good dreams. Interesting, no? One theory that since our brains are doing all sorts of things when we sleep, it inadvertently triggers some of the circuits that make us feel fear, and the dream becomes a nightmare since really the content of our dreams are created by our subconscious.

I do know it'd be really fun if I could get myself to have lucid dreams every night. Playing God, even in an imagined world, is a wonderful experience.

Sorry for not posting yesterday, I was getting my ass kicked online at Call of Duty haha

  1. I'm actually quite afraid of lucid dreaming. Fear of the unknown I guess.
