Hey there. I don't think this would classify as a lucid dream, that's why I didn't want to start a thread about it. It just seemed this is the best place to ask.
I experienced something weird this morning. I woke up, but because I could tell it's quite early, I tried going back to sleep. Now, I've been dreaming tonight, and the dream was right before I woke up. So, when I failed to go back to sleep, I just started thinking about the dream. It started feeling like a proper dream again, though I could control bits of it, most of it was pretty autonomous. The thing is, while the 'dream' just picked up from where it finished when I woke up, I knew I didn't fall back asleep. I was fully aware of my surroundings and could move or open my eyes whenever I wanted to. So how did this 'dream' feel like a proper dream, even though I wasn't sleeping? Anyone could please comment on that?
Also sorry for repeating the word 'dream' a lot lol
