Pretty often. As a rule I dream each night. What about you?

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. It depends on dreams.

If it’s a good dream, I like it ofcourse. I don’t like having nightmares.

I used to have the same dreams every night, but it was a long time ago.

I meet different kinds of people in my dreams. Sometimes I meet my relatives that passed away a long time ago.

(10) Do you tell other people about the dreams you have?

Sometimes. When I worry about something I can talk in my sleep.

Yes I have! It’s interesting and quite scary. There is a good movie with Leo Decaprio about things like that. It’s called Inception (Начало).

Absolutely. I see our cat dreaming pretty often. She is moving and making different sounds.

Yes it does. When I have bad dreams, I am not feeling well when I wake up.

(5) Do you think dreams can be explained scientifically?

It’s about how our brain works. I think that dreams can be explained scientifically. That’s for sure.

Having dreams is a normal thing. I don’t want to change anything. I want to have as many dreams as I should.

(9) Why do you think some people remember their dreams and others don’t?

We all are different. Some people can do things that others can’t do. It works the same way with our dreams.
