The text of most recent dream reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. The exact question for the Demographic Survey 2010: Please describe your most recent dream, either from last night or within the last week, in as much detail as possible. The response is limited to 3000 characters. I am a 40 yr old high school teacher. In my dream, I find that I am walking down a hall at my old high school for finals, but that I hadn't been there all semester. I am a bit freaked out about taking a test without knowing any of the materials--and I'm afraid the teacher will yell at me for never showing up to class. I was trying to figure out how come I had to go back to high school when I had a college diploma. I sort of came to the conclusion that I had been taking classes just for the hell of it, evidentially. But, I didn't want to go any more. I was trying to decide if I should just stop going. I was thinking these thoughts in my head as I was walking through the halls of the high school, trying to find my next class. I looked down and realized that one of the plusses of going back to school is that I have my high school body back! I'm amazed that I have magically lost weight and can fight into my high school clothes. This is a common dream for me.

The text of earliest remembered dream reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. Exact question: Please describe the first dream you remember from childhood in as much detail as you can. Response is limited to 3000 characters. I have an excellent memory for dreams. This takes place in the 70s. I am about 7. I am at my Aunt Midgie's house and all the old folks are there. It's a family reunion (we often had those when I was a child). They are sitting in lawn chairs and at a picnic table in Aunt Midgie's back yard. She has a long, skinny, winding sidewalk from her garage to her house. The old folks are sitting on one side of the walk, and I am on the other side. All of a sudden, a giant tomato starts rolling up the sidewalk!! I don't know if I should be afraid of this tomato--is it on the attack--is it coming for me or the old folks? I do feel fear, and it wakes me up.
A follow-up question for participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 who answered the question about earliest remembered dreams: Is it a recurrent dream? No
The text of worst nightmare reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. Exact question: Please describe the worst nightmare you can remember, from any period of your life, in as much detail as you can. Response is limited to 3000 characters. It was right after my first baby was born. There is a river that cuts through our town, and the San Souci bridge goes across it. It is night, winter time. I have the baby in the back seat of the car in his car seat. It is a citation. I am driving. I come up to the bridge and before I can stop I see that the bridge ends half-way across the river and I drive over the edge. All I can think is, as I'm driving over the edge in slow motion into the cold, black water is "Oh my god I've killed the baby". I scream in my dream and wake myself up, crying and shaking. I was so upset, in my half-wake state, that I decide to go back to sleep and have the dream again. I fell back asleep, and found myself driving my car to the bridge, just as before. But before I drive off the edge, I yank the steering wheel to the left, and avoid driving off the bridge. I pull the car to the side, and grab my baby out of his car seat and hold him tight, in his little blue, fuzzy snow suit. It is still dark, and cold, and I can see my breath. I am in the parking lot of Electric Park Ballroom--a venue that sits in the edge of the river. I am breathing fast and rocking back and forth. I saved the baby this time. I don't remember anything after that.
