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...

Dumbledore’s fluff


In the great hall. Having a meeting with Dumbledore. A kid called Jake stuck some white fluff to Dumbledore’s hand without him noticing. Another kid tried to get it off but caught Dumbledore’s attention. He was mad and assumed it was me. I pleaded with him and told him I knew who’d done it. I…

The Toothbrush War


War is declared. Mom, Lee and I had to go up. Lee said to take toothbrushes, as people have been making little moustaches for the dead. As we left, I heard the neighbours playing old war songs, throwing balls around and shouting boom.

Clubs and dogs


Goodwin and I were out shopping. I had a list of things to buy, but he only had a short amount of time. He suggested we go to Poundland to get the board game, but I wanted to get that from a toy shop. We went somewhere to get some snacks and we each picked…

The desk


It was my birthday. Mom and I both opened our presents on the same day. The only thing I remember I got was Lego, but I got lots of other things too. Mom and I had planned to go into town the next day and buy ourselves a CD each to celebrate. I got the…

Death by phone


In this dream, a man with short dark hair and a woman in our house, hiding trying to kill us. We stopped the woman and knocked her unconscious. Lee and I found the man. Lee him with something and I whacked his head with my phone, causing him to bleed. He looked to have died.…

Elton in the leaves


Had a dream in which Elton John was doing a music video with Ed Sheeran. Justin Beiber also made an appearance. The music video was set in a big hall and had Ed playing piano while Elton did stuff. The song was quite staccato, a bit like Benny And The Jets, but a different song…

The neighbour’s window


I was in my back garden and the neighbour came around. He told me and my brother, Lee, that he’d locked himself out and asked if we could help him climb in through the window. I said yes, because it sounded like a fairly easy task, but Lee pointed out he meant a window on…


Putting the shopping away at home. Mom’s friend had told her how bad cereals were. I still wanted white chocolate coco pops. I had some cereals and the milk was off so I had to wash the bottle out. Mom quizzed Lee on his diet. When asked about salad at home he said he had…

Benca on a London boat


I’m London with Mike and school friends. On a boat, restaurant several floors below sea level. I sat with Connor and a girl. My name card had BENC/A on it, so I pointed it out and said my name was Benca. Mike had to go back up to do his blood sugar diabetes test. I…

Rockstar Crisps


In cafe shop. I queued up but didn’t know what I wanted. Mike and Dennis competing for my attention. Mike was hugging and licking people. I wanted an Easter chocolate . Went to look for one. Accidentally broke a rabbit ornament so I took it with me to pay for it. At home I was…

Mats and ice cream


I arrived at karate and found out we’d been moved from one hall to another. We had to move the mats that had been put down to the other room, and make sure they were in an alternating green and black pattern. I started moving some and when more people arrived I came up with…

Living with kids


The dream started with a bit of a prequel flashback sequence. I was at my friend’s house and she’d had another baby. It was one by now, but the doctors had said that he had very slow development and couldn’t do very much, which was quite sad. But the other kids were still playing with…

Bush thugs


I was walking down the street when I saw some thugs heading towards me. I tried to ignore them and focussed on reading a leaflet I was holding that was given to me by one of the guys from the improv comedy class I go to in real life, called Devonte. The thugs kept following…

The blue ceiling


In my dream I woke up at 3am. I went out for a walk and bumped into Dennis from school. We went to a hotel restaurant and sat down. There were a few other people from school there. Dennis asked if I wanted anything and I said no at first, but then fancied some apple…

The avocado gift


Had a dream that I was at school doing an English exam. All of the questions were mini essays we had to write. I had a look at the question paper and asked how much I had to write. A girl said “However many lines there are, you’ve got to write that much.” Which made…

Belle, Rhinos and dinosaurs


In this dream, I met the writer of Belle (from Beauty and the Beast) that I roleplay with on Twitter. I was quite excited to meet her as I don’t know what she looks like in real life. In the dream she looked pretty much like Belle, with brown hair and a yellow dress. In…

Lou’s owl impression


I was simultaneously in and telling a story with a few other people. I was in a sort of trench with comedian Lou Sanders and a another guy. I began, “One day, Princess Halle was walking through the woods.” The dream then showed Halle walking through the woods and the three of us made sound…

Taskmaster and cakes


I was appearing on the next series of Taskmaster. I was in a house with the other contestants. The only one I remember was Nadine Coyle (formerly of Girls Aloud). She asked me something, but I can’t remember what now. It was quite late, and the others were still up and about, but I decided…

On holiday with the Masons


In this dream, I was on holiday with mom, Mike and his mom, Adele. We’d decided to go somewhere that didn’t have their own empire. We narrowed it down to a few and mom picked Bolivia. I can’t remember much of what we did there. The first day we did do stuff. I think we…

Karate toilets


I was at home getting ready to go to karate. I had the TV on and saw on the news that Boris Johnson was being interviewed in what looked like the leisure centre we go to for karate. At first I thought it was the same hall as our dojo, but it looked quite different.…

People who’ve responded and you’ve kissed


The Tenth Doctor from Doctor Who was talking about Alexandra palace. Meanwhile, Dan (played by John Bishop in Doctor Who) was talking about his feelings for his friend Diane. Later, I was at a restaurant with Jo (from the improv comedy course I go to in real life) and someone else. I was doing a…
