Dreams are not something we should give up on. The only time that we should give up on a dream is if we either lose absolute interest in pursuing it or if we find ourselves so bent on pursuing another dream that said interest outshines whatever passion we ever had originally. Our dreams can change, but all that truly matters is that we stay with them, no matter how they may alter. Dreams are the bane of the existence of everything everyone will ever achieve. Whether one inherits a fortune (thriving off of the success of another’s dream) or gets their ideal job that they’ve always hoped for (following their own dream) , dreams are the key to our prosperity. I have had lots of dreams in the past and I have given up on a lot of them. Dreams can change, and they changed for me the most throughout my childhood. When I was a young child, I dreamt of the day that I would be an astronaut. For years all I ever wanted to be in life was an astronaut. That was my first dream. However, I always despised mathematics. I loved going to school and learning new things but I had no care for mathematics whatsoever. I would dominate in subjects like English, history, and civics, but math was always something I struggled with. One day my father told me that the majority of astronauts spend their career doing nothing but math and that was the day that I abandoned a dream for the first time. Knowing that the most essential part of reaching my dream was to spend my life doing the one thing I…
Dreams are mysterious, amazing, eye-opening and sometimes a nightmarish hell. Unpleasant as they may be, nightmares are an essential part of dreaming. While our more enjoyable dreams are created by wishes and desires, nightmares are a result of other feelings like stress and anxiety. However, like many dreams, nightmares are not as straight forward as they seem. Today, I will be discussing many different types of common nightmares.
One common nightmare is the occurrence of a natural or manmade disaster…

My Dream theory Analysis
According to Sigmund Freud a dream is an unconscious wish fulfillment.
Every dream has an underlying message to things that are connected with or conscious
problems or wishes.
On my first night I dream that I was driving my four wheeler back home. Home is a
desert, so I was just riding and it was peaceful. The day was coming to end it was a maybe a
little after sunset, but the further I was going I became more frightened. When I tried to turn
around I only found myself back in the direction I was going in…
I like "dropout" as an addition to the American Dream language because it's brief and it's clear. What I don't like is that we use it almost entirely as a dirty word.
We only apply it to people under twenty-one. Yet an adult who spends his days and nights watching mindless TV programs is more of a drop out than an eighteen-year-old who quits college, with its frequentl mindless courses, to become, say, a VISTA volunteer. For the young, dropping out is often a way of dropping in.
To hold this…
Running Head: DREAMS
State Fair Community College
Dreams can range from normal and ordinary, to overly surreal and bizarre. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the dreamer, with the exception of lucid dreaming, where the dreamer is aware. Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. Dreams can, at times, make a creative thought occur to a person or be a sense of inspiration…
A dream is what starts off my day as well as millions of other people. Sleep is essential to human growth and life. During sleep we dream, which is a way for our mind to set itself apart from the body and do whatever it desires. Dreaming is very complex and therefore hard to interpret since some can be controlled or linked to our feelings from a particular day.
We have all awakened in the middle of the…

Understand Your Dreams
I hear crying, a baby cry, I walk around to see what it is. As I’m walking I look down and see that I’m wearing some sort of sleeping gown, white frilly kinds but beige, and boots. I can’t seem to see my boyfriend in sight, and can’t help but think, ‘whose baby?’ Finally, I find the baby. She stops crying immediately after she sees me, and smiles and calls me ‘mama’ She’s so adorable with dark, thick, curly, black hair…
Why Do We Dream?
Modern Theories of Dreaming
By Rebecca Turner Lucid Dream Forum
Why do we dream? Ancient civilizations saw dreams as portals for receiving wisdom from the gods. In modern psychology, Sigmund Freud famously theorized that dreams were the "royal road to the unconscious". Modern theories suggest it's not as complicated as that. Are we getting closer to understanding dreams?
Freud - aka the father of dream research - gave psychoanalysis as one explanation for why we dream. But Freud…

THE AMERICAN DREAM
What is the American dream? The American dream is the support base of America’s
economic, political, social and world growth which brings Americans together and also is a huge
factor of the differences that pulls Americans apart.
The American dream has powered the hopes and aspirations of Americans for
generations. The dream is nonexistent and in an obscure way, seems to be very achievable. The
Dream began very simple, giving everybody the right to pursue happiness…
