I don't know if I have a hyperactive subconscious or what, but I have incredibly vivid dreams. Every night I have detailed, life-like dreams, so much so that sometimes it takes me a few minutes to wake up and recognize them as dreams. Last Saturday night I dreamt I was applying to PhD programs, and I was sure I was going to be accepted to NYU's art history department. I was going to work on medieval tapestries, and have an internship at The Cloisters. It felt all too painfully real.
