I have recurring dreams quite often. The setting will take place somewhere I know from real life. Everything about the place is distorted and misplaced though. Somehow certain things make me remember where I am. Other times I create places based off the places I've been, but the dream version is somewhere I've never seen physically. Its normally places you can think and recall the atmosphere and setting, but not the true location because its landscape and not human built. Like at the ocean or in nature. For some reason my whole life I've dreamt these same places on occasion, and the dream version is always the same within the dream. Even if its a bit distorted and slightly different I still know where I'm at, and have memories of the old dreams within the dream. Memories I never have in my awoken life, until i see it in a dream again. If I'm lucky I'll get to explore it a bit, but many times I see my dreams completely turn into other dreams, and have no control over myself, and little control over the dream. Sometimes I can completely change them into what I want though. Lately I've been consistantly recalling the memories of dreams in my dreams, and think "Oh yea that happened in a dream once." But my dreams still feel like real life, and I cant control much. I feel like that means I'm one step closer to lucid dreaming, and truly understanding what it all means.

The fandom is Attack on Titan. It's literally one of the most popular manga+anime series in Japan and Korea and has copies in like 8 million hands now. Hulu has what's available of the anime series.
I had specific dreams...in 2001!...about the first trip to the castle with the Captain and his Survey Crew. This wouldn't be written until around 2009 or 2010.
Here it is, with the names that were actually people known to me redacted for privacy:
7/15/01--I am part of a group of students in high school i think and we all have different "jobs" in an old building. I am part of the "clean-up" crew. We're moving lots of heavy stuff around. Me and another girl are supposed to clean everything and write a report. I am vaguely aware of [Classmate Guy ]'s presence.
8/28/01--1. I'm in a completely bare, white-walled room with a former female college roommate and a guy I thought was good looking in high schools. The walls in the room are old. Very old. They're yellowing, and have large stains going from roof to floor. There is no carpet, no furniture, no decorations, *nothing* in the room. It's just a dark hardwood floor and yellowing, once-white walls.
It has come to the understanding that these walls were even *worse*, and I had used some sort of bleach cleaner to clean them off. [Female] and [Guy, same guy from previous dream] are walking aroudn with me, complimenting me on the wonderful job I did cleaning the walls, even though I know a lot of cleaning and a repainting is still needed. [Female] does all of the talking. [Guy] doesn't say a word, but follows Female and me through the empty room.
And lately I've had some weird accurate stuff too.
And yes my dream log spans 20 years! I write something down almost every day. Getting good quality sleep has become extremely important to me for this reason. It's fascinating to me (except this freaking weird stuff) and it's all so interesting to explore!!
Posted by MacDaddyInfinitePosted by T3DDo you let go for something you're not sure will be worth the investment. To just any ole somebody who comes along? It is insane to do the same thing over and over, and expect different results. Melody wasn't the first, and if I followed your advice, she would be far from the last.
No, not necessarily one night stands. I was thinking more like someone else who comes along. Someone of value who has no need to measure you up to some ridiculous standards of not being deemed worthy.
What if they too captured your heart along with giving you the love you desired in return? Do you just dismiss them just to continue to hang on to that "pipe dream"?
Now I have nothing against people getting back up on the proverbial horse and not giving up. Nothing against people who have a history of many love attempts.
But the goal isn't to live a life of only attempts. Even if it were, value would be measured in the quality of the attempt. In great attempts, it is glorious even to fail. But if you barely try, barely struggle to crack the code. Then you just wasted your time.
It's real simple. How many times did I listen to others telling me to move on. Only to listen to them and allow them to kill my love, for a second chance that failed and ultimately just proved to make me look the fool and like my words mean nothing?
What does "I love you." mean when said to the 50th person? You could have stopped at one and at least then, even though you wouldn't have gotten reciprocation... At least the love you held would be a beautiful spectacle to behold. Instead of a worthless laughable joke?
True love is too much for the vast majority of mortals. The odds that you will be disappointed over and over again, are tremendous. I won't give another soul a chance, unless they can prove their word is absolute. End of.click to expand
Posted by MacDaddyInfinitePosted by T3DAll that you'd miss? You mean worthless One Night Stands, cheap imitations of what you once had, etc?
Just imagine all that you'd miss waiting on someone who may never come around, or possess the same devotion as you.
It doesn't have to be about waiting. It can be about refusing to give up what mattered most to you for something cheaper and less valuable. If you move on in the sense of getting with someone else.
You should make damn sure it's goin to be worth it. Considering what you're giving up.click to expand
Posted by MacDaddyInfinitePosted by T3DThe hope that they will see the error of their ways and fall to you unyielding love?
Why acquiesce if they don't deem you worthy to begin with? Why set yourself up for the fall?
I couldn't do this.
This topic reminds me of a song...
Why piddle paddle and talk about "forever" only to look like a joke that can't keep their words in line with their actions for the life of them?click to expand

TBH if someone starts a new relationship with someone how do they know that their new partner doesn't have anything if they haven't seen clinic test results?
Also how do you he/she isn't sleeping around?
I wear condoms and get tested every few months. If I choose to have multiple partners I'm not going to be stupid with my health.
A friend of mine was on a break with her bf and he had sex with a woman and wore a condom. When she got back with him, he gave her a nasty STD so they are not foolproof...
No you're right, but they're a lot safer than treetrunking everyone bareback and assuming the only risk is pregnancy. With regular tests I am keeping my self safe or at least taking precautions.
I felt a little sick reading this.......the thought of being with a bloke that's slept around per se makes me gag but the ones who don't use protection .... yuk. I had rships with four virgins and one guy who'd slept with very few women...God has been very kind to me haha...💛
At least you are responsible.....
Jihadist would be turning in their graves if they knew you received a 1/10 of their commission pay in tacked. 😁
Thanks....like your funny face and comments
