A Little Too Unrealistic

by B.Pavlin

Ever since the new teen sensation Justin Bieber came to be, I obtained almost an obsession with him. Not a little girl obsession where I'd do anything to marry him, but an obsession with his music, personality, and what he's done to help others, ect.

At least every other night I have very very vivid dreams about Justin Bieber. These dreams range from my mom bring him to my workplace to surprise me, being on a date with him, and simply just hanging out like best friends.

The feelings that I encounter during these dreams are tremendous. They overrule all emotions I've ever felt before, I wake up in a daze hoping it was all real. I know I'm a lucid dreamer because of previous dreams, but for some reason, whenever Justin Bieber is in my dreams, the dreams seem so unbelievably real that I do not recognize I am actually dreaming (even though when I wake up I realize how unrealistic my dreams are).

Even though being able to control your dreams is a power most wish to have, I am kind of ecstatic that these dreams aren't controlled.

Is it just Justin?
by: Hawkmoon

You strike me as very confident and goal driven person. You know what you want from life, and yet you still seem like you haven't met right person to share your life with. You definitely have some strict expectations which are visualized in person of Justin Bieber. It is actually pretty common, beacuse celebrities that we know of are usually shown only in best light, and we like to idealize persons by attributing most desireable traits to them, and we got motivated by our "heroes". Which works just fine untill the point when we meet our heroes and discover that they have flaws like every other human. But it doesn't bother you, looks like you having much more fun sleeping than being awake :). Interesting thought is that you sometimes wish someone else takes control of your life instead of you, which seem to be your regular role.
