...then you wake up and you can't remember what you were dreaming about? It happens to me often and I really hate it. I'd tell you what my dreams were about but I can't remember..:(

That used to happen to me all the time and it was really frustrating! Remembering dreams is like learning a language or learning an instrument. It's a skill that just takes practice. One thing that really helps me is to write down my dreams as soon as I wake up. It doesn't have to be a long detailed description. It can just be little notes. Right when you wake up, your subconscious mind is still alert. That's the best time to remember your dreams. After that it's very difficult. Another thing to do is right before you go to sleep, write down or think about an intention and then sleep on it. For example, if you want to dream about a pink elephant, think about the pink elephant right before you go to sleep. It sends the message to your subconscious mind.

Oh, I do take (mental) notes of my dreams every once in a while. Back then I was planning on writing a story based on a string of dreams that vaguely have anything to do with each other. But then college kicked in so I kind of scrapped it. The problem is when right as you wake up all memories of your dream, all the details, everything just disappears, and even though you're aware that you just dreamed, you can't remember what it is. :(

I can never ever remember what I dream, can't remember that last time I knew what I had dreamt.

That has happened to me before too. But on the other hand, there were times when I woke up and I could still remember that nice dream:)

It happens to me too. I don't dream that often though.. or maybe I do and I just can't remember that I did. I don't like it too sometimes but then again, I could've had a nightmare that night..it would suck if I were to be bothered by it the whole day.

It's fine if I don't remember that I even dreamt at all, but I do, and I can't remember what the dream is about. :(((
