    I’d want to dream about me having a bunch of fun probably. Or maybe the first dream I had in Canada, which was about me and my family at an outdoor zoo and the animal cages had glass in the front. We were passing a big lion with a head the same size as it’s body that growled at me and pounced to attack me but it hit the glass and when I realised that my family was in front of me by quite a bit I ran to join them and get away from the enormous lion.

    Me, being a lucid dreamer, first, imagine with my eyes closed, next, realise I am still awake. Finally, I realise that I am either awake or asleep using that experience.

    I keep having the same dream. I live in Norway so basically we have dark time during the winter. Its dark outside for 2 months. So the dream goes;
    I am at school and school is over. I try to Get to the bus but things keeps stopping me like I cant find my money, my shoe laces keeps opening and messing up and i continously have to tie them. I lose the bus, either i catch it or I don’t. It varies. Sometimes I Even have to walk home. One time i realized I was dreaming when I was «Walking home» all alone in the darknes. I tried lucid dreaming and make an unicorn appear as I felt like it would lighter up the mood. The unicorn appeared but it was this swimming pool floating toy with haunting eyes. Tonight I had the same dream except I actually got to the bus in time. I got home too but as I was walking towards my house I «realized» I was dreaming and it was like the dream made fun of me Because I wanted to make an unicorn. It didnt appear but instead two demonic children screaming, yelling at me and breaking their necks appeared. I felt extremly uncomfortable when I woke up, I have no idea what I should do when I dream these kinds of stuff. I know that the not reaching the bus in time thing comes from when I was younger in elementery school i did not reach the bus but, it was summer and a friendly guy in my class walked me home. I have no idea how it turned into these rather demonic and evil dreams.

    When I have lucid dreams, the way I have to control it is I have to say it out loud in my dream repeatedly. Like, I wanted to turn this charm into a necklace, so I had to keep on saying “turn into a necklace” until it was made into one. Same with flying, I have to keep saying “fly, fly, fly, fly...” for me to keep on flying. Super weird, but I love those kinds of dreams.

    There was one time, pretty recently, I was dreaming about the first day of school next year, (since it's summer,) and I was doing something, and running from a teacher. I started yelling that it's a dream, and became aware of what I was doing. Instead of stopping and looking, I kept running, screaming it's a dream. But, I could feel myself being tired of running, and I woke up in sweat, and out of breath

    Once I had a math homework which I couldn't solve. When I slept I dreamt of the answer to the math problem. When I woke up I quickly wrote it before I forgot. Truelly a miracle.
    So that means I still thought about the answer even until I slept. Because I saw myself just writing the answer like in 6 seconds. But in real life it was 8 hours. I'm confused, how did my brain thought about it without me?

    Ever since I was little I have had crazy(on a scale from 1-10 my weird dreams score a joke) dreams I remember many and I see things as if they are real I used to try to run but I couldn't for some reason turns out that is why I kick in my sleep...I kept trying to physically move and ended up getting no where that fast because I was physically moving in my sleep. Just lately I have been at least been able to control my movements but I can't completely change the entire dream I can just barely change actions of what happens...the ironic thing is last night I had a dream that mixed a lazy river with my old school and then...Jurassic world (probably because I saw the movie 2 weeks ago...but there were only 5 different dinosaurs and they were you had to act different ways depending on the dinosaur like one particular one in order not to be eaten or killed you have to act playful like a dolphin...another you just have to duck underwater...but...there was one dinosaur the only thing you could try to do is run and hide and pray you wouldn't get caught...and after going around for 3 times I was wondering what would happen next and when it will be over but then there were dinosaurs taking people out of the water killing them I was freaking out and got out of the water and then they were all looking at me I was trapped but then a friend of mine came and grabed me taking me to like some one else's house and there was a lab there and then people were screaming and running because the dinosaurs were multiplying...and then it felt like temple run and we were running jumping and dodging...but that is where the dream ended because I was waken up...this was a dream I somewhat could control is a step up I suppose from...having a grave yard in front of my room window with zombies in my room with me under the bed(I think I was maybe 8), my school church filling with water and the the entrence blocked leaving me trapped inside(had that when I was 6), or the the one where my school parking lot was a lake or pool of some sort where I had had like midevil wood cuffs on my wrists and ankles where everyone was just looking at me trying to not drown(had that when I was also 6), then the one where the playground was a swamp and there were alligators and crocodiles and I jumped up to the swing set but had my leg bitten off(that was when I was maybe 9) and one where I was in a Chillies restraunt and then I wind up in a tank in my ballet clothes and was freaking out because I got holes in my tights and I knew my mom would be angry about that then wind up climbing out of the tank and then little hot potato sort of thing was going on with a weird tiny shark tank that went after me and so I ran to the entrence to find that the parking lot was so far down and then it became an ocean and then the shark reeled me in with a fishing rod getting me by the leg(that was when I was 5) then this one where I was a mermaid for some sort of place under a coffee table and then I was swimming in a stream that was the best and coolest one but...then it got crazy because I was in Africa based on the location looking like the Savannah. And then there were these guys shooting me and then it showed a mermaid skeleton with a large red ruby in the tail fin and then I pop out and and then I laughed and then the other people laughed HECK THE FRICKEN SKELETON LAUGHED!(I had that when I probably 12)and then there was Weirdmaggeten just after Weirdmaggeten part 1 on Gravity Falls I was in Weirdmaggeten and came face to face with Bill Cipher...that was when I was also 12...yeah...I could keep going but it might go on and on...and then I had some pretty dark twisted ones as well...I am not going to get into it...I don't even keep any kind of dream journal yet I remember my dreams clear as day...yeah...I think it have something wrong with me...I think I might need help...

    Call me a weirdo as you wish, but I had a dream in the 3rd grade where I walked out my front door, Into our driveway, & held up a quarter. I then shout fairly loudly, "I SUMMON THE POWERS OF THE UNDEAD DEMONS." Then there are ocean noises & a litteral tidal wave of slime erupts from our woods. I have no Idea where that came from, but If I could choose what happens In dreams, I might dream about that a little, just for fun.
