For the most part, I don’t remember my dreams after I wake up in the morning. Like I know I had a dream or something weird happened, but I normally can’t directly pinpoint what happened.
Well, enter the pandemic.
I’ve been having the weirdest dreams ever since all of this started. I think I read/heard somewhere that some people are having weird or crazy dreams because we’re not doing much and our imagination is running wild. Mine definitely is. The only other time I had dreams like the ones I’m currently having was when I was in grad school in 2016-2017, especially around when final projects were due.
I think I’m having at least one crazy dream a night. And I can actually remember who was in them, mostly because the people in them are people I haven’t seen or talked to in years. The funny part, though, is when I wake up I wonder why no one was wearing a mask.
I haven’t been doing much, so maybe that’s why my brain is like, “let’s think of weird things when you’re sleeping!!” Thankfully I’m not having any nightmares, but I’m also wondering what else my brain has in store.
Pre-pandemic, did you have weird dreams? And are you like me and having weird dreams right now? Do you normally remember what you dreamed about?
