Reflection on dreams: Zoe Kim ’18

How would you describe your overall dream experience?

I don’t exactly [have] lucid dream[s], but I have very vivid dreams where I can feel stuff … The worst nightmare I had was when I woke up, and I saw a small beetle on my pillow … A bunch of cockroaches started crawling on my skin. I could feel them chewing me… It was really gross. After a while, I couldn’t remember if that happened in real life or in my dream — that happens a lot, too.


How do you think mixing up dreams and real life affects your day-to-day life?

I guess [it affects] conversations with friends because I don’t know whether I can make an inside joke because I don’t know if it really happened or not. Sometimes, I think about a friend saying something really stupid — which is a totally realistic occurrence — but I can’t remember if it happened in school or if it happened in my dreams.
