A couple of dreams I've had lately.....
a few weeks ago- the first part was kinda dumb, but it had to do with me missing out on the big fight last year at school which made the newspaper. What really happened in real life was that I was just absent from school, but in the dream, I was with my friend about to find a place to sit and eat lunch. We were about to go outside and saw the police and there was a big scandal, so we didn't go outside and that was pretty much it.
The second part is one of the strangest ideas I've ever had, and never could've (or would have reason to) think of it. I was at my old neighborhood (the one i used to live in 3 months ago), outside standing on the sidewalk. I look up and see this black spaceship-looking thing floating above the houses. It has this long black chord with a small platform at the end which was touching the ground. Some of the kids my age who were my neighbors stepped outside, and it went from house to house, lifting them up from the platform into the spaceship-thing one at a time. I was (this word is so cheesy, but it's the first thing that came to mind) flabbergasted. (The spaceship-things looked like those things on the video game Beyond Good and Evil that magnetically pick you up and drop you off when you're entering an off-limits zone in your boat.) The next day, I hear on the news that the government secretly sent out those things to pick up young people for the draft! I was glad I avoided those things and didn't step on the platform. There was a lot of arguing since a lot of people didn't approve of the draft, and i was hoping they would completely stop it.
A couple of days ago, I had a very disturbing dream. It might sound funny, but it didn't feel funny at all. I dreamed that my little brother killed a friend with his fingernail. Yeah, that's pretty ridiculous, isn't it, lol? I didn't actually see the crime, and the events are kinda fuzzy. In real life I used to pick him up for at the bus stop and he'd be the only kid there. I did that for about 2 weeks off and on until 2 weeks ago or so, when summer break started. I think in the dream, what happened was that I picked him up and asked him, "you killed a kid on the bus with your fingernail?" He said he did, and we were both extremely sad and couldn't believe it because it was something that never could've happened. Then we wondered what would happen. The whole thing was really tragic, like Pettersson-type tragic.
I've had a lot of dreams lately that I can't remember, that are vague and abstract. There were a few which involved lions chasing me. There were some where I'm riding something like a car (i can never see it) and go on the strangest ride, through world that look like a mixture between video games I haven't played in forever and real-life streets. And it's really fast, too, and frightening. Maybe these types of dreams are modeled after theme park rides and mixed with extra stuff?
Another frightening dream that I've had lately (and probably has recurred a few times, it really seems it has) is that I'm in the hallway of my old school and the whole building falls down flat just like a book falling on a shelf. Then the fire alarm goes off, red emergency lights flash everywhere and I'm stuck running around trying to find the right staircase. Usually when I dream about school, though, I keep on dreaming that I'm trespassing by going back with everyone even though I've already graduated. Then I have the awful feeling I'm not wanted and I try to avoid all the grownups so I won't get caught and find my old friends. I think the interpretation of this dream is way, way, way, too obvious. Perfect, easy example for Freudian dream analysis. I dream of old friends way too much, maybe once every other night. Especially one of my friends who moved away in less than a week's notice (he didn't even say anything, i asked him about it) about 4 years ago. I found his myspace page a few months ago and sent him a message, but he hasn't logged on in over a year. I've had a few dreams where I'm at this school that is like a vague model of my high school I went to from 9th to 11th grade. Then I enter in a classroom and I see him in the same class and I'm really happy, though I can't remember if we ever talk. In a similar dream I'm at my desk in a class, and the whole direction of the class is moved from straight ahead to the right, for no reason. Then where the teacher and chalkboard is supposed to be, there's a glass window that covers the whole wall. We're all looking out and we see a different part of the street that the school is on, as if the school teleported from its normal area to another. Then I get really, really frustrated and disappointed because nothing is happening. I'm sitting by someone and we're not talking. I was hoping for excitement and nothing! Lol, I just realized the glass window part I got from when I used to ride the bus and look out the window all the time. I did that for most of the first two years in high school if there was no one interesting to talk to, which was often. Then the last two, I basically owned my seat. I'd lay down in it and by then everyone recognized it was my seat (espeically as a Senior) so i got less people stealing it or asking to share it, hehehe.
(I wonder if there is any rhyme or reason with how and when the subconcious chooses to relive experiences and mix them up with random symbols and other stuff....)
So, everyone else, what have you all been dreaming about lately?
