Stuff In My Drawers Day: Recorded Dreams

When I entered the 7th grade, I decided to try recording my dreams. I kept pen and paper on the nightstand next to my bed, and trained myself to immediately record keywords from my dream as soon as I woke up in the middle of the night or the next morning.

By the time I graduated from high school and wisely decided to end the habit before I received a stranger as a college roommate, I had filled in two columns on 21 pages in Courier New 10 point font. For the most part, the entries are cryptic and vague when viewed twenty years later, but the occasional keyword definitely triggers vivid memories from parts of these dreams.

Here is a small sampling from my dream sheet:


Backyard/Storm/Animals
Men/Dingler/Hammond
Hammond/Ferris/Mermaid/Treasure
River/Mud/Pollution
Noctis/Scouts/Mars/Hills
Cornet/Band/Mixed-Up Stage
Bowl/Egyptian/Bub/Ducktales
Backyard/Katya/Lutz/Cave/Quantum Leap
Panthers/Museum/Chase/Guns/Hill/Swamp
Plane/Fly/Science Fair/Comp Game
Crew/Yard/Spider/Band/Shed
School/Tale of Two Cities/Shadow in the North

Bus/473/28/Cliff/Bowl
Gym/Tim/Band/Eternal Coin Phone
Jones/Jacket/Crete/Snakes
Harrigan/Erin/No Cows
Goblins/Fish/Kerry/Michelle/Jennie
Underworld/Crew/Freshman/Maryland
Medusa/Fish/Couch
Nancy/90years/Aaron/1903-1993/Bike
Pizza/Band/Jenny/Cheryl/Telekinesis
Church/Trampoline/Michelle/Bugs
House/Grue/Spiders/No School
Abandoned Farm/Chickens

Hammond was my junior high school. Additionally, I had the dream about chasing panthers through a swamp on two separate occasions.
