Mr. Sandman....Please Bring Me Reality...

Sometimes I wonder where the idea, imagery, or even the people come from; when it comes to dreams. It's been said you dream of something you did that day. Maybe something on your mind? What I never could understand is where do the random things come from?

Lately I've had dreams of the same person. Someone I would never consider in the real world as a love interest. This person is a great guy, but we are different people. Sure, opposites attract, but I'm not sure our opposites would work out. Although, I guess you never know.

Because I've been dreaming of him, I can't stop thinking of him in real life. Before you say, I'm crushing on him. I'm not. Most likely because I know we'll never be. I think I realize this because I've gotten to the point that maybe just maybe I'm meant to be single. No, I'm not giving up on love. Not yet at least. I think a lot of it has to do with me knowing the signs. I see the same thing with all guys I've had crushes on. I know when someone has no interest in me.

That could be why I'm crushing on fictional guys more than I would right now with a real guy. No, I'm not one of those crazy people who think the fictional guys are real. But it's nice to imagine, hey if I had a guy like that? I could be happy. Again though, I'm not giving up on a guy. If one comes along and I feel something? Great.

So, my next question about dreams. If I think, oh this actor or character is hot. Why can't I dream about them? No, instead I dream of him. In the dream, we'll be friends, but I feel something. In other dreams, we're dating. I'm betting you're wondering how close we are in real life. Honestly, not that close. I see him from time to time, but not enough to where I could crush on him. I see his posts on Facebook. The posts don't make me want to have a crush on him though.

With my luck, since I'm blogging about him, I'll dream of him tonight. Maybe I could try to think of Mr. Darcy before bed. Hmm, which version of Darcy do I want to dream about?

I have thought about looking things up in a dream dictionary, but how accurate are those? Guardian angel maybe? Someone who is watching over me? Dreams have to mean something. Who knows, maybe somewhere deep down I'm thinking of him and I fight the feelings for him. So, I bury the feelings somewhere in my mind. Somehow a key unlocks the box and my thoughts are released in my dreams? Could it also be that my thoughts of him come out in my dreams because I know we'll never be?

I wish we could force our dreams so we don't have to dream of something that will never occur. Why can't dreams be like our reality? I know in reality, I have a ninety percent chance of growing old alone. Why can't my dreams face reality?

In the meantime, I guess I'll have to wake up and realize it was all a dream. When I see him again, we'll say hi and what's up. We'll move on with our lives soon after. I have to admit though,if I dream of him. I'm sure he doesn't dream of me, but what could he think of me? Do I pop into his head? Something he sees or does, could he think of me? I guess we'll never know.

To Socialize or not to Socialize...that is the question

So I'm feeling good right now. Why, you ask? I had a writing weekend. I managed to only go onto Facebook and Twitter once over the weekend and that wasn't until Sunday evening. Better yet, I was able to get off both sites in a timely fashion. I just hope I can keep it up. We shall see.

I just hope as I back away from Facebook and Twitter, people will still keep in contact. Remember life before Facebook and Twitter? You would call people or email. Heck, we had AOL instant messenger. It's bad enough, I feel out of touch with so many people because if you don't catch their post? Oh well, you'll never know their exciting news. It's also sad because I have friends on Facebook who I was close with, but now? Yea, I'll see a post from them, but half the time it's a game post or some type of quiz.

You have to love the friends who seem surprised when you say something like, "Cool, I didn't know." They get annoyed with you because apparently they posted the great news on Facebook like two weeks ago. I have many, many friends on Facebook and Twitter. Unless, we are super close these days. Unfortunately, I'm not going to see it. Heck, sometimes its hard to keep up with family.

Do you ever feel guilty about missing a friends great news? Or, do you want to be like me and think...oh well. Maybe you should have said something by, I don't know email? I don't like talking on the phone, but there is great thing called text messaging.

Thoughts? How do you handle friends who get annoyed when you don't keep up with their life?
