I read Dreams from My father,an American book written by a biracial man (Barack Obama) who is in a struggle to find himself and his place in America and in the world. This book chronicles his childhood, teenage years, and early adult life. It follows along to provide a detailed look at Barack's family and the rich ethnic diversity of his family, and goes in depth on his adventures in Kenya and Indonesia. The main theme of this book is race, how it is being considered and used now, and how it was viewed in the past. This book also details his experiences in the U.S.,as a lawyer and activist.
Riding a hover board has always been a dream of mine. I have always loved to skateboard, longboard, snowboard, ski, and surf. There is something about being on a pair of wheels on the road that makes me feel unstoppable. Flying down a recently paved street, going against the wind, and having no desired end destination is a great feeling.

My name Is Vontay Farmer and two of the things I love to do the most is to act and to explore life. Me acting is a part of dreaming of my goals, my future, etc but one thing I have to say about myself is that My Dreams Are Always Stories Untold.

We all want to live in a dream.
We want to run off and stay in it just to get away.
Everyone has a dream that they want to become a real.
Its up to them to make it one.
Believe and it could become true, don’t let anyone stop you.
A young lovers dream is for it to become a reality and for that reality to have moments to live in forever.
Roses can be red, Violets can be blue
For if you're ordinary
There is nothing special about you
roses can be red, Violets can be blue
Follow your dreams, don't let them choose you
For if you are for who you are
There is a special spark in you
Do anything you want to do
I don't like people's attitudes over here
in the Bronx,
There shouldn't be a reason why people are just mad
or catch an attitude with me, especially with me
because I'm nice
I guess people don't understand,
like I just want to move to a different environment
or like a place when people aren't cruel
like correct me if I'm wrong,
but i feel like living in Manhattan is better
because from all the times I have been there,
I just feel better
around all of the people over there
walking down in Soho, I feel so at home
I feel like when I'm around rich people
I'm one of them
There are many ideas on why people dream and what those dreams mean. It is believed that humans dream all the time, it’s just that they don’t remember all their dreams. “Whether we'd like to admit it or not, whether we are able to remember them or not, we all dream. People awakened from REM periods in sleep experiments report they've been dreaming 80%- 100% of the time. REM dreams are considered to be more perceptual and emotional as opposed to NREM (non-rapid eye-movement)dreams”. Some common dreams include taking a test you weren’t prepared for or being chased by somebody.
In the first article I looked into it was on “The Interpretation of Dreams” by Sigmund Freud. This covered a lot information I did not yet quite know. He says “A dream is a disguised fulfillment of a suppressed or repressed wish.” When I first read this I questioned this because I immediately thought about how we experience bad dreams and we most likely don’t wish to dream that. Sigmund did consider the objection that not all dreams are wish-fulfillments, and that some derive from other types of mental states like anxiety dreams.
A new study I have been researching says the higher the brain activity the more often people will remember their dreams. Perrine Ruby who leads the research for Lyon Neuroscience Research Center in France, conducted brain scans on 41 people while they were awake and while they slept. Some remembered their dreams about five times a week and 20 remembered there dreams two mornings per month.
In Aatif Zubair’s essay, "6 Surprising Things That Can Influence Your Dreams”, from Mental_floss, http://mentalfloss.com/article/54220/6-surprising-things-can-influence-y... . The main idea of the text is about things can influence people’s dream.Like sleeping on your stomach can cause erotic dreams,another thing that can affect dreams are earth’s magnetics, black and white television causes black and white dreams. Other things that can affect dreams are different types of cheese , and nightmares can be shared/genes influence nightmares.
There are four points behind dreams. First a dream is a form of thinking that occurs when there is a certain minimal level of brain activation, when external stimuli are blocked from entry into the mind and when the self system is shut down. We don’t just dream during sleep, but also on some occasions in very relaxed waking states when we “drift off.” Second when we dream it is something we experience because it feels very real, making use of our senses, seeing and hearing. It can also be very emotional.
Dreaming is thinking. When we go to sleep our body and our conscious mind falls asleep but our subconscious is still awake and active. It is a mode of contemplation that’s much more visual and intuitive and emotional, as opposed to the patterns of waking thought. It confronts problems we may be facing in everyday life. When we try to suppress these thoughts it can lead to an increased occurrence of these thoughts in our dreams.
I decided to research dreams. It was really hard to narrow it down to a specific topic. Since I always have very elaborate, detailed dreams I always wondered why I dream them so I decided to focus in on how dreams are triggered and why we dream what we do. Dreams are diaries of our emotions and intuitions. First I started with bad dreams. Spicy foods have a large affect on bad dreams. It elevates the temperature of your body thus leading to a restless sleep.
I have a hard time remembering my dreams in the morning but I wish I could because I have fun in my dreams, it's like another world. But why do we have dreams and what do they mean? People have often told me that they are just stories or imaginative scenarios we make up in our subconscious. But then there are people who say dreams tell us something. Whether that something is a desire we have or a memory of an experience, I believe there is something more to it.
And my dreams saw me being born
The trees watched me growing up
The ocean watched me as I sailed
The stars watched me as I crossed
The stars watched me arrive
The stars witness my victories
The stars witness my losses
The stars watched me as I ran
The stars watched me as I flew
Forgive me if I’m myself, but i’m a cosmic kite the biggest of them all
I sailed against the wind. Doing the impossible I entertained myself,
until my objective is complete this rider will not get off his rocket.
Walking on a path of dangerous ground,
I dodged all the bear traps.
Everyday the sun was my witness,
And the moon the one who showed me the way,
I fell but I got right back up,
like the flowers who rise up during Spring.
Without a scratch, I made the Universe small when I raised my fists,
I told my courage before it dies, to cook me my desires because my dreams are hungry.
If my knees faint,if the sky falls, if my days become distorted and turn to ice,
if my blood become cold green color,
And if my courage has an empty stomach,
if my dreams fight with my luck it is possible that
failure will open it’s eyes and wake up.
But I’m prepare for the salty days, anyone who has walked has fallen
I fell down with all of my weight, but the stronger I fall,
the stronger I will return.
I don’t run, because wings came out of my boots,
My body sails through the wind,
I’m going against everything, making the air sweat.
Every step I take is narrating a story,
even my feats are amazed.
History chases me because I have turned it into my shadow.
To have a heart that burns a fire so bright
It outshines the galaxies' greatest stars
To live in awe of the simplest things
To dream of free life
With no stress
With no wars
To reach every goal,peak upon peak
In hope of one day being set free
To be free to dream whatever,whenever
To be who I want to be
Oh how I wish I could escape the wrath
Of that dark aura here on earth
To be bold,or to be shy
Simply to be
For where the pastures are greener lies my hope
Where the pastures are greener lies my destiny
Where the pastures are greener lies my fulfillment
One might argue that the image of the wilderness can be considered of symbol of dreams. In the epic of Gilgamesh, page 174-175 describes Gilgamesh missing his brother. On page 175 Gilgamesh says, “For six days I would not let him buried, thinking, if grief is violent enough perhaps he will come back to life again, for six days and seven nights I mourned”. Gilgamesh clearly misses enkidu and wishes him back. In some dreams people can dream with people who no longer are here.
I think the epic Gilgamesh has so much repition because dreams meant certain things in that time.It seems that dreams would help tell the furure which means if repition was happening in dreams they would understand the dream more or explain it.I also think repition was also used in the story because it was a message.In my opinion I think the repition made a nice part of the story.
