  1. I just tried to comment but im not sure if it sent cause the internet sucks in the Student Appartments..

    Essentially I said that this was an interesting blog post with some neat facts. I never knew that if you are snoring that means you cant be dreaming. This was a good post, the only thing I might change is making it a bit more personal or sharing how these facts relate to you in any way.

  2. Some of those facts are so unbelievable! It’s weird to really think of those facts, especially the fact that when blind people dream they see visuals. Maybe you could have written a short description to what you thought of the facts and which ones you found to be most interesting. Your other blogs posts are really interesting too, especially the one about the rodents. That dream would freak me out too! I know what you mean about having a weird vibe after a dream because you cant stop thinking about it. If you were to improve this blog post I think it would be to just put in some of your own comments about the facts and maybe if you could relate to any of them.
