A frequent visitor of the mind (3) – dream

Do you dream of strangers more often than you dream of your friends?

Super Blue Red Moon phenomenon

I dreamed of a woman last night.

No, sorry, there were two of them.

We were talking God-knows what in my dream. And then, it happened…



I kissed a lady on the cheek. A sudden gush of happiness tingled my body. It was ecstasy. I remembered I stood up, walked up to her, and lean forward to give that peck on the unsuspecting lady.



I woke up.

Tried to figure out how such dream came about. Well, it’s not the first time for me. I often have dreams. Though, I think, there might be prerequisites for their existence:

  1. I need to sleep late. Pre-11PM is still too early. After the clock strikes 12 would be perfect. It balances things between sleeping late and getting enough sleep.
  2. The more I know about someone, the more likely they appear in my dream. Most, if not all my dreams,  happen to have someone I know in it. Is it a common thing? What about you? Do you dream of strangers more often than you dream of your friends?
  3. Strong ties, strong emotions. This factors not only in increasing the chance of dreaming, but also in giving a more vivid and memorable dream. If you often dream but can’t seem to remember what you dreamed about, maybe it’s because you dreamed of something or someone that doesn’t evoke great feelings in your life.


So, about that dream. I was dreaming of my friends. We met about a year ago. She (the one whom I kissed) and I rarely hang out together. Although this year, there were occasions where we kill time together.

I was sleeping late due to me overthinking about work and stuff. I don’t really have strong ties with her. We just happen to go to the same place every week, but I see her less and less often in that place. I have to admit, I am missing her a bit. Maybe that explains the dream I was having.


Besides that dream, I also have dreamed of my friend with whom I am working now. A simple dream: He sits beside me. We code together. That’s it. 🙂

That was me, waiting for winter break in his uni, so that he can pay us a visit and work in person with me. 😀 I was so happy when he finally stepped foot in the co-working office.

He sits beside me. We code together. Dreams do come true. ❤



Oh, there are really a lot of dreams I could tell you about. But in this post, I just want to tell that I am a dreamer. I am a person who keeps his dreams alive in his mind.

I believe that dreams can come true if you strive for those dreams, and give it some time.

Thank you for reading. May all your dreams come true, friends. 🙂




In the last couple months of 2017,
I talked about a couple of other stuff that lingers on my mind.
Check them out:

A frequent visitor of the mind (1) – despair
"When you see how the world works..."

A frequent visitor of the mind (2) – devotion
"You give your best. Do you know what it takes?"

Are you having those thoughts too?
