Déjà Vu

Déjà vu is the feeling that you already experienced what’s currently happening. It’s French for “already seen” but it’s not an actual French expression. It just sounds fancier in French I guess. Studies have shown that about two thirds of the population have experienced déjà vu before. That makes it a pretty common phenomenon. It’s a weird sensation. It feels like a mundane event in a dream becoming reality. You take a step back and realize that you’ve done all this before. You feel like you already had this conversation. You feel like the scene unfolding in front of you has happened before.

There are a lot of theories as to what causes déjà vu. Some people think it’s a form of precognition. Some people think it’s delayed signals in your brain. Some people think it’s proof of parallel universes or a glitch in the matrix. I prefer to think of it as one of those mini miracles of life that I never want to have explained. Everybody loves a good mystery. I prefer it to remain unsolved. It’s more fun that way.

The Accidental Wake Up Text

Sleeping in is nice. You get to lie in bed, all comfortable and content, drifting in and out of dreams, without a care in the world. And then the reality slaps you in the face and your phone buzzes and wakes you up. Some jerkass texted you for some stupid reason, it doesn’t even matter why. You can’t go back to your awesome dream so you’re kind of pissed before you even manage to open one eye to read the text. And no matter what the text says, it’s never worth waking up for. You might obligingly respond and tell them that you’re still sleeping before you close your eyes and try to drift off again. Inevitably they’ll text you back apologizing for waking you up, waking you up again in the process. You just can’t win and the universe doesn’t want you to.
