1. Do you often have dreams at night?
Yeah! Basically every night, but sometimes when I’m fully/wide awake, I would forget all of them, which is kind of weird.
I heard there are people who have never had dreams, or at least they don’t remember they had one, so sleeping for them is just like, you close your eyes at night, and then open your eyes in the morning, and it feels like just a second has passed. I’m so curious about what that feels like.
除了有fully awake或者wide awake，还有像half awake或者half asleep这种形象的表达，例如：
She was still half asleep (= not fully awake) when she arrived at work.
2. Do you remember your dreams when you wake up?
Well, just like I said, I would remember some of them, especially vivid and unrealistic ones and of course nightmares. For example, the other night I had a horrible dream about snakes. They were everywhere and even on my body, I just freaked out and woke up in a sweat.
跟the other night相似的用法还有the other day/ morning/ evening/ week，他们都表示recently，例如：
I saw Jack the other day.
3. Do you like hearing others' dreams?
Yeah! I like it when my friends are sharing their sweet dreams or nightmares with me. They are full of entertaining and hilarious stories, you can even tell one’s imagination from the dreams they had. And to be honest, some of the nightmares my friends told me are even more thrilling and gripping than the actual ghost stories or horror movies. Yeah, so I just love to hear about them.
Gripping表示exciting or interesting in a way that keeps your attention，经常被翻译成“勾人心弦的”。例如：
His books are always so gripping. It turns hours into seconds.
4. Do you think dream will affect life?
Well, I have to admit, although dreams are not real, sometimes they do have an impact on our lives. For me, when I’m exhausted or stressed out, I tend to have a hard time telling dreams and reality apart, especially when I have dreams that are closely related to my daily life.
And also, some people are superstitious, I mean, they believe that certain dreams have particular meanings, for example, when you dream that you are buying jewelry, that means your marriage is on the rocks. So that kind dreams might actually change people’s behavior in reality.
Superstitious means believing in superstition (the belief that particular events happen in a way that cannot be explained by reason or science; the belief that particular events bring good or bad luck)例如：
I’m superstitious about the number 13.
On the rocks: a relationship or business that is on the rocks is having difficulties and is likely to fail soon. 例如：
Sue’s marriage is on the rocks.
5. Do you want to learn more about dreams?
Yeah, but not in a superstitious way. I mean, I believe dreams have something do to with our physical and psychological condition. I heard about a research online that the analysis of dreams can reveal details of a person’s mental state. So I guess, if I could learn more about dreams, I would be able to get a better understanding of myself.
Have (got) something, nothing, a lot, etc. to do with somebody / something is used to talk about how much somebody / something is connected with somebody / something. 例如：
Her job has something to do with computers.
‘How much do you earn?’ ‘What’s it got to do with you?’
Hard work has a lot to do with (= is an important reason for) her success.
We don’t have very much to do with our neighbors (= we do not speak to them very often).
I’d have nothing to do with him, if I were you.
