I finally was able to have a lucid dream, albeit it was very short because I was woken up by noise. So I was looking my Mac computer screen and I had just learned last night that if you look at the time a couple times you'll notice that it won't be the same. So I look at the time on the screen and saw 10:35 with some gibberish letters then looked away and looked back and it was 12:00, and I realized I was dreaming. I heard a notification noise, like signaling I was dreaming. At that point I was starting to get excited, so I told myself to calm down and tried to rub my hands together. But it was around this time that noise in the real world woke me up, even thought I was desperately trying to hang onto this dream,it soon disappeared anyway.
