vivid dreams | what could they possibly mean?

i have been having the most insane dreams as of late.

about a week ago i had a dream my sister, dad and i went to hawaii.

we jumped on one of those little pontoon boats and took off out into the ocean blue.

my sister is a dare-devil and a bit of a free spirit and leapt right off the boat into the deep waters. after about a minute i started to panic because i could see a killer whale swimming up from the depths. my sister was going to get her legs eaten, i just knew it.

i started screaming and yelling for her to swim back to the boat. she got there in the nick of time and i pulled her in as the killer whale breached and slapped back into the water.

i have watched blackfish way too many times.

dream #2 was about my college roommate.

we had a bit of a falling out after graduation. it was all a really weird situation. i was moving to the big city. she was staying in the apartment. i'm still not exactly positive what happened. actually, i have zero clue what happened. we were great friends. then she wrote me an absolutely crazy letter and we were no longer friends.
as life goes after almost 10 years we've both married and both had babies.

i had a dream that i went to visit her in this tiny tiny town in idaho where she was living.

i saw her home. i saw her baby. she was making dinner…that was the end of the dream.

the truth? i'm nearly positive she doesn't even live in the state of idaho. i also haven't spoken to her in nearly 10 years so why have a dream? i hate that.

but can we take a moment to talk about that picture? we were headed out to celebrate our 21st birthdays. yes…in matchy shirts.

and yes…i was about 20 pounds heavier in this picture. i thought i had a license to eat and drink whatever i wanted in college + i never worked out. that was a tough lesson to learn. yikes.

conclusion? i need to let this one go.

dream #3.

i'm positive there was a dream #3, but when i sat down to write i 100% could not remember what it was about? does that happen to anyone else?

"i had the craziest dream last night…" and then zero recall. that's annoying.

final thought? watch blackfish if you haven't. it's fantastic. and sad. but really good.


  1. UM... I love that you posted that picture. It might be time to bust out some of my "good ol' day" pics.

  2. I hate when you know a dream was crazy but can't remember a dang thing about it!

  3. I have the hardest time remembering my dreams! My friend has this awesome book that you can decode your dream to learn what it could mean, such an interesting read.

  4. obsessed with blackfish. i could watch it over and over. and i hate the feeling of knowing you had a weird dream and not being able to recall any of it. it is the worst. happy monday :) xx.

  5. Like Hope, I am also obsessed with Blackfish. Like you, I have really vivd dreams but I almost always remember them.

  6. I love weird dreams, I spend all day dwelling on trying to remember the details and what they could mean, then make up elaborate stories about where I think they should go. but maybe I just miss my creative writing class from college haha. I'll have to make time for Blackfish soon. Netflix keeps telling me to watch it.

  7. I hate when you wake up from a dream all terrified and remember for all of 5 seconds and then you forget. I haven't seen blackfsh yet but you are scaring me about watching it. Haha!

  8. I have a lot of crazy and vivid dreams, and they often tend to fall on the same themes--I often dream I'm back in beauty school, which is most likely because I hated beauty school. I also dream a lot about my family, and having adventures of all kinds with them.

  9. same boat. crazy dreams,but never remember half of them.

  10. I hate it when you can't remember a dream!!!

  11. Blackfish was an incredible film! Except I don't think I've ever felt so betrayed as I did by friggin' SeaWorld.

  12. I really enjoyed watching Blackfish, but I REALLY want to know how much of what they said is true, ya know?? But I'm alll about Free Willy!

    A lot of my dreams lately have had my ex boyfriends in them...what does that mean?!?!?
