I am...

I have interesting dreams and I can often remember them in great detail.

Since I have such crazy dreams and can often remember them, I decided to start documenting them and tagging them to see the most common things I dream about.

There are lots of dreams in my youth that I never made note of – including the earliest dream I remember in which I attended a seminar held by the Pokémon Squirtle. He came on stage and said "Hello, I'm Squirtle" and sprayed everyone with water.

I also occasionally have a recurring dream that is just me eating croutons for what feels like an hour and I also had a dream that made me terrified of Timothy Spall.

There are a few things that are consistently featured in my dreams, such as my ability to glide across the floor - either on my heels or floating slightly. So prevalent was this when I was young that I was convinced I'd done it in real life at some point.

It does sometimes become very difficult to distinguish dreams from real life. I didn't get my HND certificate because I thought I already had, but I realised a few days later that I'd actually dreamed it.

So, here are all the dreams that I've remembered...

The small bunny

I was with someone and we were looking after an animal in a room. We then left and she wanted to stop in another room to see another animal. The sign on the door said something like “small bunny”. We went in and this giant white rabbit was draped over a man’s lap. I turned…

The dangerous driver

I was doing an improv routine with a girl in front of a hall full of people. We were pretending we loved body augmentation and were wanting bigger breasts. It wasn’t that good and they weren’t laughing, so we wanted to stop. But the audience said they liked the characters. So we ran to the…
