    Is this normal? I have about 2-4 dreams per night. They are very realistic, adventurous, non-logical and vivid.

  18. First Blog Entry Ever Really

    I'm not the blogger type. Usually if I have something to say, I would just find someone and talk their ear off. I find that even while my typing is faster than my handwriting, it's still a little to slow for my thought process. Lol, even now my brain feels like I'm driving with the emergency...
