I had a dream where I kept making sandwiches.  I would teach a class and then go into a kitchen and make a sandwich.  I would go for a walk... and you know... and they kept pilling up.  This huge mountain of sandwiches extending from the floor to the ceiling.

I just had a dream that I was assigned to interview George Szell - who was still alive - about his passionate love for watching TV. I was super intimidated to meet the great man, so I felt pressure to come up with really interesting, meaningful questions, not just "what's your favorite show?" But the time for the interview was coming and there was no paper, so I grabbed a magazine and started writing questions in the margins. The questions I remember writing are:

- What was the first TV set you ever owned?
- You had a reputation in your Cleveland years as a difficult boss and disciplinarian. Do you think your love of TV has made you more relaxed?
Hilarious!

I was in a car with Vladamir Putin and was supposed to drive him somewhere, but he ended up driving and drove completely crazy, zooming through the city at full speed recklessly. Needless to say, I was a bit annoyed.
Sounds like a nightmare!

Another animal-filled dream... can't think of a single dream from years ago filled with animals (though insect dreams were very common), but over the last year there have been so many.

Struggling to remember the animals in the first half, but at the end there was a whale sticking out of the water, looking at me and wanting to be my friend, so I was totally cool with that and felt some sort of bonding with the whale.

Seems this is the general theme of the meaning of whales in a dream, multiple sources saying the same (btw did not watch any video of whales recently)
Quote
Whales are associated with compassion and solitude, and knowledge of both life and death.  They are also associated with unbridled creativity.  The exhalation through the blowhole symbolizes the freeing of one’s own creative energies.
But in general, it depends on how the whale is presented, a beached whale can be an omen.
Since the dream was very positive, then it's all a positive, I guess.
The unbridled creativity- was working on music all day yesterday, coming up with some crazy sounding jazz-like piano stuff, so... yeah....


I had a dream where I kept making sandwiches.  I would teach a class and then go into a kitchen and make a sandwich.  I would go for a walk... and you know... and they kept pilling up.  This huge mountain of sandwiches extending from the floor to the ceiling.
Seems like the sandwiches are symbolic of grading papers, maybe.


Sounds like a nightmare!
Lol, yeah.
Part of it is maybe a bit of maybe some morbid curiosity about the guy- always struck me, by his mannerisms and physical appearance, as the opposite of what he is. He just looks like a really weak and timid person IMO. But also kind of crazy/fearless.

There is also a theme of the last two dreams...

a blue whale and Vladimir Putin. They both represent extreme amounts of power. And I was trying to have a sort of friendly, I don't know what to call it, but "conversation" or something (even if not in words), some sort of understanding with them.

Also considering the common dreams I have with celebrities (at least four or five dreams where I was alone with Elon Musk, just hanging out), it feels like all of this could be grouped into the same thing.

There is the concept of subtypes in the enneagram, that I'm suspecting can translate into dreams.
self-preservation = SP
sexual/one-on-one = SX
social = SO

I score very high on SP and SX, and low on SO. Most of my dreams are either alone or with exactly one person, can't even remember any dreams of being in a group.

SX is a very intense bonding that can be done through either a thing or a person, probably having that type of orientation while (mostly) lacking it in real life explains the abundance of that type of dream.

From October:

Dreamed of owning a killer whale, petting its smooth blubber and trying to understand how those weird eyes worked.

Those animals seem to be really positive dream signs.



From 2008:
Also, the idea of being in the middle of the ocean and seeing a blue whale is probably the scariest thought ever.
Though in this dream it was out of water and friendly...

So I dreamed about a cricket and then dreamed about looking up what the dream meaning of a cricket is.

This is so weird, of all things to have this being so accurate:

Quote
Cricket Dream Symbol – Dreaming of crickets are a sign of good luck. They indicate that all you work for is coming to fruition. Achieving all dreams are possible at this time. You have done the hard work and it is about to pay off.

Quote
To see cricket in a dream
If you see cricket in a dream, it means that you will soon have a celebration.


Considering only in the last two days have I realized that I'm just about done with my project that I've been working on for a year and a half (often for 10 hours a day), and it's something that I've wanted to do for 20 years now. It's the most applicable dream meaning that I could have at the moment. Really weird.

I wonder how these websites get their info about dream interpretation (they are all similar), if this has been passed on multiple generations or what, and if there's some connection with the collective unconscious.

 

second dream: having a reunion with my third grade class (though mistakenly in my dream i referred to it as second grade). Everyone was grown up and we were sitting there in that same portable classroom lol

Dougal tells Ted about the school reunion that he attended:

Father Ted: Anyway Dougal… you were saying… about the school reunion.
Father Dougal: Ah yeah, I didn’t recognise anyone. And you know something?! They all became firemen. I was the only one there that wasn’t a fireman.
Father Ted: Dougal… you didn’t go to a fire station by mistake, did you?
Father Dougal: Ah!

Father Ted was a comedy series about three Irish Catholic priests the church relocated to a remote island to keep them out of the way. Ted had embezzled church funds, Dougal was incredibly stupid and Jack was an alcoholic, but they were all portrayed with a certain charming innocence. 0:)

Dreamed of being in childhood home during Christmas, but with someone that I can't even say who it was.

There was a small-ish black snake crawling around on the ground, which was causing some anxiety. But it was a totally chill snake, like it didn't even notice I was there, it just slithered around, minding its own business.
(maybe it was a libertarian snake or something LOL  :P )

The person I was with said, "Oh, there's another one, actually. It's no big deal, when I was a kid, we used to play this game. It involves putting a bunch of snakes on a clothesbasket and throwing them up high! It was raining snakes!" I thought that was crazy.

I didn't come into any contact with it (didn't tread on it) and it was all good.

Looking up the dream meanings (i'm joking about the libertarian reference, definitely no relation to that) and it's fun reading.

Tbh I just think it means I'm forgetting something really important/potentially harmful at the moment, seems that feeling may have transferred into the dream.

What if these black snakes don’t attack me and are just there? Dreaming of snakes that do nothing to you has totally different meanings than the previous ones. In this case, your dream may be unpleasant but not scary, the snakes do not want to attack you and you may even approach them voluntarily:

Dreaming of black snakes that do nothing to you, that simply show themselves, often symbolizes a wrong decision that you have made and that you cannot remedy. It frustrates you to have made a mistake and it scares you of failure, but you must Eptar that mistakes in life are constant and that in no case will these failures be decisive. Relax, you can still learn and approach problems from another perspective.
This totally could be pointing to something that I suspect, specifically the "oh, not one, but two!"
Lol if it is, that would be so funny. Hard to say, but it totally feels like it.

Movie idea:

One day, some guy starts to get constant bad omens from dreams or real life sources, but instead he gains extremely good luck during his life right after that.

However, the thought of the omens linger and cause lots of anxiety, killing his enjoyment about the good stuff he is getting. Eventually, he dies at an old age after an extremely fortunate life.

Turns out, the omens themselves were the misfortune.

 :P
