    I usually get about 6-7 hours of sleep on average, I sleep around 12-7am. More recently I've been getting some longer hours (from 1-2 to about 10-11), as I'm on study vacation and don't have to wake up early and go to uni. I'd like to get about 7-8 hours and would recommend that amount to anyone.

    I believe sleep is important, you can't do things in life properly if you're tired. It takes me under 15 minutes if I'm not worrying about trying to fall asleep AND I'm tired that night. I am not a deep sleeper, but I don't get woken up if it there's some light rain tapping on the roof. My favourite place to sleep is in my own bed of course.

    I'm not the type to fall asleep on planes, I just can't do it. Main reasons are a combination of too much plane noise, good movies to watch, and uncomfortable seats (economy class). I've never fallen asleep at the cinema and won't, as I also choose my movies carefully. I rarely take naps unless I'm very tired.

    It happened to me once and was brief; I dreamt that there was a spider crawling on me while I was sitting on a wooden seat at a park. I got up and started running, knowing I was in a dream, but actually felt something on my head. Thought it was the spider so I put my hand on hair and woke up; it ended up being some of my sticking up hair touching the wooden plank of the bed near my head. :lol:

    Yeah Lucid dreaming happened to me once. In my hand in the dream, I was given a handful of £5 coins (don't remember why), and as I started to wake up, my hand started to clench, and for 5 minutes I searched my bed for these coins until realising :|

    11:30pm to 8:00am is the usual. Different people need different amounts of sleep - some as few as 5 hours and some as many as 12. Sleep is very important - I'm sure most of you have done some all nighters studying or playing games, and I always feel like a mess after one of these. It can take me long to get to sleep depending on when I took my medication. Because of the meds I'm a fairly deep sleeper. I usually sleep in bed but if it's too hot I'll move down to the couch. I never fell asleep on a plane or movie theatre - it would be one long plane trip or one very stupid movie (some chick flick) before I could. I do take naps but for the most part I'm just resting my eyes for 20 mins a day.

    I have the craziest dreams. sometimes I start levitating and wind starts to blow me around in the air. Other times it's like I'm in a sci-fi movie - there will be a spacecraft or submarine and I'm on some quest to fight evil. Once and a while an old girlfriend will pop in and the dream will turn into a R or X rated thing. I guess that my daily life is so dull that my mind needs to break out some crazy fantasies at night.

    Has anyone else dreamt of flying through the air like superman? I hope I'm not the only one ...

    When I was younger I did, and I must say, it was such an amazing dream. It wasn't anything special as a dream. I was having some sort of family gathering (I was about 10 at the time), and then I went out in the garden just before the sun set and just started flying around and above my shed, was so cool! Haha, seeing everything in a new light :) If only you could choose your dreams, I would def. recommend dreaming it :p
