I remember being at a restaurant and Neil* came up and handed me a boxed card game. He wanted me to keep quiet about him giving me the gift because he thought his wife would think something was going on between us when there wasn’t. I didn’t understand why she would assume he was cheating on her, but whatever.
I went to another room and checked it out. I remember playing a Solitaire-like game and instead of numbers, there were planets – each suit was a solar system and the card numbers were based on the order of planets from the center star out. I remember having trouble remembering an order of one solar system. The art was cool.
I went to put the game in my car, but I couldn’t find it! I went to where I thought it was parked and found a red Subaru instead of my red Prius. I thought it was towed.

I remember walking down a street with a tunnel to a dock area with my dad. Some people at the end of the tunnel kept kicking chunks of cement toward me and I caught each one with my foot and kicked them back.
We got to the water and the ground was covered in clams (the wavy shell kind). I kicked some into the water and they floated up to take a breath and went back down. There were tiny humans along the edge and I kicked them in and they sank. I was like, “hmmm….” and kicked more clams in.
I was sore from my first fencing class, so my dreams were a bit weird. I don’t know why I dreamed about aliens. What’s worse is that I kept trying to make the scenes even creepier.
In my dream, there were different kinds of aliens. One kind was even in a space suit. One kind was able to shoot lasers from their eyes and destroy things. They generally went after other aliens, though, but some were mean and would trick humans and burn them up.
I remember being in a hotel with Neil* and being worried, not only because of the aliens, but some group was hunting me down as well. I remember seeing the laser dot from the gun on my blankets and ducked down to avoid being shot. Later, Neil almost kissed me, but I turned away because, in real life, he was in a relationship with another girl. Me turning away reminded him of that.
In another scene, it was like a movie. The government guys in a building somewhere hid a dead alien in a weight room/gym. It looked like the cheesy alien from the fake Roswell autopsy film. One military guy came into the workout room and he whistled and stretched, but obviously was a little creeped out by this dead alien to his right. He murmured something like, “There’s nothing to be afraid of. You’re dead.” After finishing his workout, he left and the camera stayed in the room. The alien moved its head to the right.

I remember hugging Neil* and walking in the cold outside a Dairy Queen at night.
I remember being in an English class in a high school-like building with stairs. We were teamed up to create horse carriages from scratch.
Matt, Jenn, Sean, Grace, and I learned how to dog sled.
