I’ve heard that when you begin dreaming in a foreign language that is when you know you have mastered that language. So, what does it mean when you begin dreaming in blog and what exactly is dreaming in blog? I have no idea, but I will try to explain what has been happening.
Weeks ago, I told G that I dreamt that I had written an amazingly detailed, funny blog and when I woke up I felt so productive and on top of things. Then I realized that I didn’t actually have a blog written nor could I even remember the content of said blog. It was even more frustrating because I could remember details such as writing the sentences and making edits. In my dream, I also knew that I was dreaming because I could remember saying to myself, “this is a dream so you have to put all of this in your notebook NOW or you won’t remember it when you wake up. So get up and type it!” In my dream, I did just that. Smart girl.
Yeah, no. It was a dream! I didn’t ACTUALLY do ANYTHING! I just dreamed that I did it. How can I remember everything except the content? How is this helpful at all? I vowed after that first experience that IF it happened again I would get up and write down my thoughts. I even put my pen and notebook on my nightstand just in case.
This week it happened again. It’s so unbelievably real and yet I can’t quite access the whole memory. Why can’t I remember the topic and why has this happened more than once? I have never had the same dream twice.
This last time it was even more vivid than before. I can remember logging in to my workspace, looking up definitions, transcribing my notes and even creating a witty acronym for something…
I even remember that I got up to go to the bathroom and yet I didn’t take any notes? Why? Because yet again in my dream I was actually typing it up. Dream Lowi had it handled. NOT!
So, what does all of this mean? I took to the internet to study up on dream analysis and this is what I came up with:
a) I am slacking off on my job (THE BLOG) and I am feeling anxious about my performance. Hmmmm. G would probably agree with this.
b) I need to learn something about the work I am doing, specifically how to write a blog perhaps. Possibly.
c) I am insane and this is just further evidence of to support this theory. Most likely scenario.
Seriously, if you have any thoughts regarding dream interpretation, I welcome them. In the meantime, I will keep my notebook and pen on my nightstand with perhaps a sticky note that says, “Got dreams? Got Blogs? Got Ideas? Got Brains? Got memories? Anything? Bueller, Bueller??”
