over a decade's worth of experience with lucid dreaming and only now had a waking-induced lucid dream completely on purpose (as opposed to randomly snapping back into conscious awareness when i was about to start dreaming). actually a useless skill because dreams i enter that way always start in a shitty knockoff of my bedroom and then i have to waste time on getting somewhere that isn't a shitty knockoff of some other part of the real world, and i have no idea how to make them start somewhere actually interesting instead. and it actually annoys me so much i usually just wake myself up and hope that maybe i'll get a spontanous, more interesting lucid dream later. still pretty cool though. i fell asleep and remained completely conscious and remember every second of the process! take that, everyone who told me that it's impossible to remember falling asleep when i was a tiny kid.

(also, on some level, this whole "end up in shitty dream copies of my bedroom" deal makes me understand why people would believe in astral projection. but on the other hand, the fact that it's specifically shitty copies makes me drop right back into "why would you even consider that this might be real" territory. i mean honestly, even closed-eyed visualisation while i'm awake does a better job...)
