I’ve always thought it was really weird because I’ve always had the most vivid dreams, so vivid in fact until I wake up I genuinely think they’re real and happening. Now maybe that isn’t too odd, everyone has a cool dream and it’s hard to decipher dream from reality unless one is trained in the art of lucid dreaming, but… when I ask around I know very few people who actually remember their dreams when the awake in the morning, whereas I always know just enough to give a detailed description of what adventure I came across the night previous. Are my dreams so eccentrically amazing that my brain just records them for me to remember for all eternity rather than leave room for my calculus equations or is there something more underneath?

Let’s talk about sleeping a little bit. The average person should get about, what, 8 hours a night? That’s the minimum right? So why is it that sometimes when you wake up you end up groggy and unrested? That’s something that always interested me and recently I found an article that somewhat explains said process and why it’s important and why we need it, yadda yadda yadda (go ahead and read the link if you want it’s actually really interesting), but I kind of want to go into detail about this personal project I’ve been conducting on using the sleep.
