I don't remember my dreams very ofter which is really annoying as dreaming is absolutely wonderful but lately I've had a couple of strange dreams. The first was about next years accommadation which isn't that unlikely given we'd been discussing it, I dreamt that I went in to see the accommadation people, which for some unknown reason were based in a silent area of the library, and I went to talk to a guy I know who does actually work there in real life and he basically said he could help and told me that Rhian was in charge, quite strange as Rhian is someone I vaguely know but there was no reason for her to be in that position in the dream or for me to be dreaming about her anyway.
The second dream, which I had last night, was a first for me. I do occasionally have dreams involving sexual activity but it's usually involves random guys who aren't actually real people but last night I dreamt sexual things about someone I fancy in real life which was enjoyable and was a shame to wake up from. It was a very surreal dream as most of mine are, it involved alsorts including townies and a fire caused by them just because I gave them some matches in exchange for some info but I don't really know why I had bought the matches in the first place.
I would really love to know what it all means. I might blog about my dreams more often, perhaps even create a dreams category!
Isn't it scary how forgetful we all are? How many things have you done in your life that you've already forgotten about? Little moments that after a while are forgotten forever. You can try to record everything but it's impossible to do it in enough detail, writing it down would take up all your time. Taking photos at all kinds of moments is a good way to remind yourself of the good (and occasionally bad) times but photo's can't record all your thoughts at the time.
So I guess we have to choose which events we do make a note of, whether it be a diary entry, a blog entry or a photo or two. We have to decide if a moment is important enough at the time to warrant spending that little extra time recording it for all prosperity.
This also leads on to what we keep and throw away, so many little things that can be nice to keep, our generation is fairly young at the moment so we don't have too many little bits 'n' bobs collected yet, personally I have a biscuit tub with little things in it like concert tickets, a few photos, some badges, drawings by friends, letters from people and even a piece of someones number plate I broke without telling them.
Does anyone else have a little collection of keep-sakes and if so what is in your collection?
