I was at some marching band competition in some other school’s gym and our band was wearing uniforms I designed, only the uniforms had zippers on the back (Which I would never EVER put zippers on the back). I was talking to someone from another school band about how I hate our uniforms and the other persons band had the same kind of uniform only in blue (ours are white)..
I remember marching to the left of my friends that were in a line..Later my friend was talking about some guy..then, some friends from band and I were looking for an indoor pool and we went through some halls and I was in front and I turned left and found a door that had a sign with “BEACH” printed on it..I mentioned it and saw a wall with a mural of a beach, but my friends said it was too cold outside and it was about to storm..so we looked for an indoor pool..
We found two blue elevators and Marie*, some other friends, and I crowded in and Allison* (who’s not in band) “stood guard” with her back to the elevator..Marie pressed the button for the 16th floor..the elevator sped really fast up to the 26th floor and since this building was being built on to, the 26th floor wasn’t [a] floor yet it was just frame work..Marie pressed 16 again and it fell really fast to the floor we were originally on..
Everyone but I got out and I wanted to figure out why it’s not working, so I pressed the button for the third floor it shot up to 30-somethingth floor and then fell back down between the original floor and the one above it and I had to crawl out..
We looked around some more and we found this pool/fountain thingy with glass over it..I was drinking a glass of water (half full) and I placed it on the glass and the fountain filled it up and it overflowed and my friend poured it out and put there again to watch it fill back up..
We looked out of the floor-length window and saw this spiral waterfall and then a huge outdoor pool..the clouds look as if it was going to rain and we decided not to go outside.
Later, I was looking around with some dude my age and we found a staircase with weird stairs where the stairs went in a square spiral every step got less wide as you went up and when it gets wide enough for only one foot, the next step gets about half foot wide..the stairs were flimsy and creaked under our weight and the farther up we got the heavier we felt..
Half way up, the first half flight we found some “nuclear weapons” ..the dude knew about them I was afraid some maniac could get a hold of them, so I grabbed four and I remember looking at my hand holding them..they looked like arrows with ends with shapes of club, diamond, heart, and spade..he also mentioned this one arrow (looked like a paddle ball attached to the front) the dude said it could wipe out a three-mile radius..
We got to the top of the first half flight of stairs and decided to go back because the steps wouldn’t hold our weight any further..then, we looked back and saw some psycho dude that was my age playing recklessly with the paddle ball arrow..we tried getting it from him, but, eventually, he got this other weapon that was a metal cube (about 1 foot wide) ..it opened and a smaller cube came out (1 inch wide) when it hit the floor, it exploded and in the cloud of smoke appeared a genie..in the big cube, there were two flames and there would be a spark and it would hit the floor and blow up, each time a bigger explosion..
I tried to blow out the flames, but that wouldn’t work, so I tried to spit out the flames and that worked, but the genie said in the malicious voice, “Do you know what happens when you mix water with this chemical?” Then, he laughed and my dream faded like the endings of those old scary movies..
I had this dream over and over again each time different things happened..
In one, a elevator repairman tried to fix the other elevator and it got stuck, too..we found some other elevators and they didn’t work either..
I remember also that the paddle ball on the weapon was full of a liquid and the outside of it was sticky and while the two guys were fighting, the arrow hit the window and stuck there and then, fell on the floor..
In another version of the dream, there was a cage of bees..then in one they got out and swarmed together into a stuffed bear shape and said, “Hug me!” and I said, “No, it will sting.” and it turned into a real stuffed bear..
Then, in another version of the dream, a friend and I were working with Styrofoam and the bees landed on the Styrofoam and started shooting out stingers and I could actually hear the stingers go the air and hit the Styrofoam..
That dream merged in to this place that was lined with a brown picket fence and the bees were behind it and I got stung like a lot of people and this doctor gave me a shot that I felt..
That dream merged into a war between the bees and these other people..They gave me a weapon, which was a long spear looking thing that can be shot off and after the spear’s shot off, it was a stun gun..this guy would tell me to kill some one and I’d get up close to them and put the spear close to their stomachs and ask, “Do you really want me to kill them?” and he’d be, like, “No, I guess not,” and I wouldn’t kill them..I remember them telling me that they have to either flee to the bee territory or to these hay houses..Then, I remember playing with the weapon and shooting it off and I didn’t think it hit anyone, but one of these two Asian girls had a bloody right elbow..I shot off the stun gun and it hit the non-injured girl, I shot it off again and it hit the injured girl..
Then, I remember a cartoon version of Jesus (I mean like a huge color drawing of his head) and he said something about how he isn’t supposed be there and then the dream merged into Rocko’s Modern Life where Rocko’s waist-deep in water because Heifer had the sink overflow.

The crazy British dude off of Then Came You and two other guys were shaking hands the crazy guy and one of the other guys were robbers. They had a gun in their hand and they told me to give them all of my money. I kept arguing that I didn’t have any pockets, so how could I have any money?
Then, in another dream, our neighbors were setting off fireworks. One of them went through our open window and hit the couch between me and Dad on the couch. I remember it exploding. I felt it burn me and I tried to put out the little fires on the couch with my hand and it burnt it.
Off the coast of Florida, there was supposedly a Loch Ness-like creature that was the size of a blue whale (which is like, 100 feet long). The dream was like a movie and me and some other divers were down deep in the ocean in a submarine. We saw something move on our radar. It was not your regular kind of radar — it was like a line graph or something. It showed a big animal and and the head guy said, “I think it’s a blue whale.”
It swam near us and we saw something that was like a computer animated aquatic animal that looked like a cross between a manatee, a blue whale, a crocodile, and a platypus. It had really big razor sharp teeth protruding on both sides of his mouth. Before it came into clear view, the head guy said, “What are those diamond shaped things on its mouth?” They ended up being teeth.
Later, I was on the beach and was talking to this guy and girl. I was barefoot and pushed a small shell into the sand with my big toe of my right foot. The couple were lying on beach towels on a cliff-type place. It was 4 ft. high where the beach eroded away and I was leaning against it. The couple was falling in love. I was just about to go out swimming when a miniature version of the monster came out. So did this other guy who I think was somehow connected with the monster.
He walked up to the “cliff” and told the guy what he was going to be when he grows up. He told the girl, “You are going to be a doctor, AND an architect.” He put the emphasis on the “and” I asked him, “What am I gonna be when I grow up?” He ignored me and started telling the guy and girl how they might be in love now, but soon, she doesn’t know just how much she is going to hate him.
He started to walk off and I asked him, “Why won’t you tell me what I’m gonna be when I get older?”
He paused for a second and turned to me and said with a sly smile on his face, “The act of not knowing is what drives you.” and swam off with the monster.
There were three:
All I remember of one is something going wrong with my class schedule and I had two study halls. I don’t like study halls, so I looked for something I could take during those periods. I signed up for botany classes or something and didn’t want those classes. I didn’t know what I wanted to take and I remembered talking to the science or botany teacher. She asked me what I wanted to be and I said something to do with visual and performing arts and technology. She said if I like botany so much, I should be a scientist and stuff.
Second dream was kinda like the movie, Night of the Creeps, that I saw a few weeks ago, except the critters were tan and scorpion-like. They could burrow through your skin without leaving a mark. It took five days before the critters would take over your brain and have a mind of their own. Five days after that, your body would explode into hundreds of these critters. Maybe I dreamed this because I have to think of a virus analogy story for science.
What I remember of the dream was that someone’s body exploded. To escape, I ran backwards into an elevator of a building and the pressed up button. The doors closed and I sighed a breath of relief. I looked over at the buttons and there was a Nintendo Gameboy (the original black and white dot matrix one) screen with the blueprint of the floor of the building I was on. I saw that there were also left and right buttons. That confused me and so I wanted to see what would happen if I pressed one.
I pressed left and, on the screen, I saw a square that I guessed was the elevator move left through a hallway-type thing. It got to the end and stopped and the doors opened. I saw “Police Office” on one of the walls in a neat font, but the “P” was hanging weird. I don’t know why, but I smiled and pressed the right button. The doors closed and I saw the square go right. When it got closer to the other side of the building, the room borders got thicker. The screen said something about that rooms being locked and went left automatically back to the police office.
I pressed the right button again and it did the same thing, only this time it made weird mechanical noises. The next thing I knew, I was outside and it was late afternoon kinda dark and cool. My friend, Amanda, came out of the building and said, “They’ve gotten inside me and it hard to keep my thoughts. Someone else’s are interfering with mine.” She was erratic and scared. I said I didn’t know how to help her. She ran into a nearby building.
I ran after her and looked in the door and said, “But just think, the supporting actress has a 50/50 chance of living! And that’s pretty good for a movie like this!” I always am trying to guess who’s gonna be alive at the end of the movie. Of course, I was gonna be, because I was the main character.
When I woke up, I thought why couldn’t we use hypnosis or have them fall asleep and have their original consciousness come out of their body? That we can get rid of the critters and then, wake them up.
My other dream was about this psychiatrist and her patient that fell in love. Just before they kissed, some girl that didn’t want them to get together came up with a plan to stop them.
It was weird, but it worked. She came into the room and yelled, “Makeover!” and some people led the doctor and patient out of the room. The patient (that was somewhat bald) said, “I want a makeover!” The doctor, which was a blond model with medium length straight hair, said, “I just want a trim.” Later, I was in a car with the model (she was in the driver’s seat, but I remember controlling the wheel).
We were about to leave when this guy came up to the doctor’s side. She rolled down her window halfway and they said something. She didn’t like him, so she rolled up the window. It was pouring down rain and the streets were sort of flooded. We took off and I remember being in control of the vehicle. It was going really fast and the wheel was hard to turn I was slipping and sliding on the flooded streets. We went a little off the road once, dodging cars and mostly COTA buses like the one we almost hit getting onto the road.
Then, in an intersection, a small semi truck was perpendicular to the road I was on. All of a sudden, this muddy river of flood water hit the truck, which directed the water to rush my way.
Then I woke up.
I remember something about talking to Nicole* about my very long braided hair that hung to my waist.
Later, I was in a place like my high school, but backward and two stories. I stood in front of these mechanical steel doors that would open upward. There was something like support bars across them in the shape of an X. We went through them.
At first, it was dark. I went in then came back out to find a flashlight and went back in. I knew something about the rare flowers I saw. I knew they were dangerous and made you grow older quicker, so I tried staying away from them. Marie* picked them and put them into a bag. I told her not to and that they were dangerous, but she was in a trance.
Later, I came back and it was light. It looked like paradise or the land of the Lotus-Eaters from the Odyssey. Some friends from school and I looked around and played and talked. I explored to see how big the place was and how they made it. I was far away in a field when, out of nowhere, this small yellow flower was blown by the wind into my hair, which was now short and curly. I panicked and wanted to get out of there so I found another mechanical door and pressed the button three times. There was a sound like a doorbell. The door slowly opened and I went into an office or house. I remember being directed to another door to my right and it lead back into the school’s hallway.
Later, I ended up going back and trying to tell people this is a bad place. I went through the second door. This time, the people there said, “People that come through this door are to be killed, but I don’t think he’s here, so get out!”
I ran to the door on my right. On my left, along the same wall as the door, I see a library room and the guy that was running this whole – what I’d guess you’d call – an experiment, was standing there with his back to me. He saw me, but the guys that talked to me shut the door. I pressed the button to the door. The door opened and I slipped out and ran down the hall and around the wall of the hallway to escape.
I was trying to find another way out of the Utopia place, so I went back in and recognized Karen* walking out toward the entrance. I remember some friends I didn’t recognize because they were 40 years old now. Some other people were playing with a boomerang rope thing. I turned to look to my right and I heard something weird and then a gasp.
I looked back and saw the friend I didn’t recognize (the girl). Her head was cut off her body and it was all bloody and stuff. Some people, like me, that resisted the paradise spell ran towards these old castle like double doors, which led us to the hallway. We ran down the hallway to the stairs and tried to explain what happened. Dad, this old fogey dude, some others, and I decided to try to save some of the people in the utopia place and get them out.
We thought that we could get the children together for coloring and telling stories, so I found this paper with a picture (for coloring) that had a story on it, two pencils, a pen, and some crayons. The others took the stuff there and I went there a little later. These little kids were all huddled around and I went to see what was going on. They were using the blue crayon to color the shirt of a character, but the sleeves in light blue. The little kid to my right started reading the story and the little kid to his right asked what he was reading. He said a nursery rhyme like ‘Humpty Dumpty‘ and the other little kid started to sing ‘Humpty Dumpty,’ while the first little kid read. I then had this theory that kids younger than a certain age grew younger and kids like teenagers that were older that a certain age grew older.
Later, I remember some guy walking in to the utopia place and we all thought he was here to convince the older people to leave. He wasn’t, though, but now that I think about it, the older people could have been the teenagers and my friends. I think I also remember that at the high school, there was like a blizzard outside. Even earlier in my dream, I remember missing out on a field trip and actually going on a second one.

First, I remember eating something sitting next to this psycho girl about my age. I had this feeling that she was going to try to kill me, so I picked up two forks and put one in my pocket. The girl tried to attack me, but I tried stabbing her right arm with one of the forks. It didn’t break the skin. I jumped off the table we were sitting on and started running. She ran after me and caught me, so I tried stabbing her again. This time, it broke a little skin and she let me go. I remember running around this stage like area. I ran by tables, through back rooms, turned left, ran, turned left, ran up some stairs to a stage thing, turned left, ran down some stairs, and ran into the table that I ran by earlier. Then, the psycho killer girl grabbed a fireplace poker and went after me with it. I fought back.
In my next dream, I was in an auditorium with friends. I was supposed to take pictures. People came in and the show started. There were about 10-15 people that were supposed to perform, one of which was Scott*.
I don’t remember much, except Scott making the audience laugh. Then, I remember him dragging a red or pink ½ inch thick cord behind him and in cursive it said my name and someone’s I couldn’t read. Someone said it was supposed to be current or past relationships and I said, I never went out with him, which is true. Then, Scott bundled the cord up and tried carrying it while also holding something striped and rolled up underneath his chin.
He walked across the stage. People crowded around and I got in front to take pictures. Later, I remember going backstage where they were showing a movie Scott was in. I always thought he would be a good actor. In the movie, he acted like an old guy reading a newspaper and yelling at someone in the other room while going to the bathroom. All they showed was his feet, which had brown fuzzy slippers on, and his face, which looked like a 20-year-old with movie make up on to make him look old. I also remember being in Mrs. Green’s* room talking about something funny that Scott did.
