I slept 7 hours, woke up and thought, ooh…I’ll sleep one more hour! Instead, I slept nearly three hours and had random vivid dreams…
I remember being in a big city – I thought it was New York City – and seeing some guy flee a building with its alarm blaring. The building was made of red brick with castle-like elements and was very tall and went along two whole blocks or so. The street sign said “[direction] Wall Street [direction].”
I watched the guy run through a crowded street thinking, think of how to describe him to the police! However, every time I thought I’d describe his shirt by color, he’d remove it, revealing another color of t-shirt underneath. He did this around four times before I noticed two people crouched beside me.
I was standing in front of my open van and almost left it to chase the multi-shirt guy, but decided to lock up my van first. I went back to my van and the two guys ran off I shouted after them after I realized they stole my camera!
Later, in another dream, I had found my camera, but it was stolen again. I didn’t care a whole lot because the deductible for the car insurance was $250 and the camera cost $1,500 or so and I could get a new one with the insurance money. Then, I realized that I don’t remember which dream people actually stole it and wondered if it mattered.
I remember being in the living room of my parents’ house (pre-2004 renovation) and finding an original Nintendo Game Boy on a stand. I grabbed it to start playing and found out that someone was wirelessly hacking into it. It gave me some choice to make, both with horrible outcomes, and kept asking for me to decide. I thought I shouldn’t have to make a choice and kept verbally telling it (and it typed it out) that I didn’t understand the question and if he could ask it again. I remember there was a game on there, but the controls didn’t work, and there was a conversation where the hacker was trying to get me to feel uncomfortable, but I didn’t care.
There was some new trend about bloodletting or something and I had a boyfriend in the dream who enjoyed cutting himself. I remember trying to keep his cutting (and some weird tube things) clean so he wouldn’t get infections, but I was frustrated about how blood stains things and is way too messy. In one scene, it got on my shirt and the carpet. Also, his habit made him pale and ugly.
I remember learning about some restricted area and I drove there by taking the highway.
I arrived at the location at night after it rained. The area had construction workers wearing safety vests and signs with the radioactivity warning symbol.
I tried walking past and one of the “construction workers” confronted me asking me if I saw the radioactivity and biohazard signs. I was like, sure, but I’d be OK. He eventually somehow talked me out of it.
I can’t remember the rest, except both Axel* and Charlie* were there.

It was really vivid, but I have lost most of it during the day…
I remember being in a classroom of some sort with “collaborative” round tables. A classmate was showing me some metal device that, when put together, would be something you did this new drug with.
Axel* was off to the right seriously disapproving of what we were doing, but I could have sworn in the dream that drugs could get you fired, not paraphernalia, from the job I had in the dream. I was supposedly some kind of part-time administrator.
I remember driving my van and went too fast. Instead of slowing down, I pushed the gas farther down and I went light speed and was somewhere else in a blink.
I didn’t think I really traveled that far…until I was walking back to the original location at night past these wonderful old college buildings. They reminded me of buildings I’ve seen at Ohio University or Allegheny College. One of the hallways in the one building reminded me of Ohio University.
I remember I was being harassed by some guys – over money or something and I dated one of them, I don’t remember the whole back story. I remember rushing into an office/restroom and because it was a weird combo, I looked to make sure it was the women’s. I found old peeling signs with the typical stick figure showing that it was the women’s. I thought it was going to be a good place to get away from the drama, but there were windows lining the room because of the office part. One of the guys came in and I was like, “What are you doing in here? It’s the women’s!”
Later, I remember using a toilet in a cubical, thinking how weird the room was and I noticed some woman in an orange shirt videotaping through the window with a 1980s camcorder. So weird.
Later, I was at a computer and the cubical walls were short. I saw a man in the cubical in front of me and I was like, “You look so familiar! I had you for a science teacher or something once, right?” He insisted that I didn’t know him as if he was lying and just didn’t or couldn’t talk about it.
Later, in the same dream, I went into a shared apartment and took a couple of decks of cards from some RPG/card game and got help packing from a friend. I said I was leaving and it will be a fresh start.
I remember sitting down at a table of two guys and a girl in some cafeteria full of people wearing military camouflage uniforms. I was wearing one, but I remember it was for show, I was not really in the group. I also had a scarf with the pattern, but I took it off because I had it on wrong and I thought it had to look terrible.
I was late to the meal and was hungry. I was worried I would be too late to get food. I sat in the “empty” spot, but I found out it was between a good-looking guy and a girl who was his friend, but she liked him way more than that. When I sat down, one guy left and the good-looking guy moved to the other side of the table. The girl started getting passive-aggressive at this point. I think she was jealous of something that wasn’t there between me and the guy.
She said I had to do something (I can’t remember what it was, now) and I was like, OK. I didn’t see what the big deal was and kept thinking she should have just asked him out.
I went to a nearby kiosk and the guy moved over so I could order my meal digitally on a touchscreen. There was a trivia game that the people in the room could play and I started playing it. I was getting every question right and the guy moved to sit next to me and we started talking. I apparently impressed him with my random knowledge.
