What Do You Dream About?

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?

  1. I go through phases where I’ll have several weeks where I won’t remember any of my dreams. Then I’ll go night after night with insane dreams that are vivid and memorable. I usually like it when I have a weird dream because it gives me something to blog about.

  2. Oooooo goodness I HAVE been having weird dreams! So I will blame the pandemic. I usually have stress dreams, so before school started, I was having dreams of school and it being horrible and all bad things. But more insane than normal. #blamingCOVID

  3. I’ve always had weird dreams but they have definetely got stranger since lock down. Good to hear you haven’t had any nightmares. Sadly I’ve had a few but generally they’re just super weird and I wake up wondering how my brain came up with what it did whilst I slept!!
