One of the dreams I remember came after seeing there was both a flood warning and a frost warning and falling right back to sleep.
I was on top of some small red double-decker bus (like the ones in England) and I was riding it around a parking lot that had people trying to walk on black ice. I lost control of my bus and fell, but I avoided major injury. Some firefighters helped me up and I clumsily tripped again and messed up my left big toe. They helped me up again and I went with a crowd into an old brick school.
There was a blond girl asking me questions like she was a journalist and I kept having her repeat the questions so I could respond with good quotes. Suddenly, a lot of dinosaurs randomly attacked the school. I started to see it from above as my character was bitten by a velociraptor. It laid on its side and started chewing.
I laid down and put my arm on it and it felt like a dog chewing a toy/bone. (A velociraptor wouldn’t have felt warm like this.) I thought, “Maybe being eaten by a velociraptor isn’t half bad.”
Then I woke up in a dream where I was in a bed and my arm was lying on a medium-sized dog with short black hair chewing a toy. I remember being happy and thinking it was cool how the dog showed up in my dream. Someone was sleeping to my left, but I woke up for real right after that.
I remember having some art show and presentation at some place. The art (shirts?) was picked by someone else and I didn’t think it was good because I considered it unfinished or rough, but others loved it. My presentation was about visually representing mental illnesses in film, graphics, and fashion design. I was nervous because I had NO TIME to create a presentation.
I remember seeing Warren* before the art show in the lobby of the building.
* Name was changed.
This song was in a few dreams and I woke up with it in my head. Not sure how it was related to the content of the dreams, if at all.
Recent dreams had:
* Name was changed.
I remember going to the first day of a class. The tables were rounded wooden rectangles with a medium brown faux wood pattern. I sat next to my cousin and I remember there was a cute guy at another table. We smiled at each other and I planned to welcome him over to my table or go over to his. My cousin and I sat in the center so we could see the projection screen.
There was a part where the teacher just didn’t teach. There was an ice cream truck at one area of the room and my cousin got me a Blizzard-like cup of ice cream with pieces of chocolate and banana. She got an actual chocolate banana and made sex jokes about the way it looked. It was funny.
Note: The chocolate banana was probably from my boss getting embarrassed over the appearance of the chocolate bananas sold at an ice cream truck near my office.
Random parts I can still remember:
There was a part where I was part of some graduating class of Marines (I think). We had neat white Marine uniforms and everyone had a hat, but me. I went to go get one and the hats were weird and had to be folded over and before I folded mine, everyone was yelled at for even having hats. They took them off and put them on a table near where we were sitting. I put mine down unfolded so others could tell I wasn’t part of the group originally with hats.
There was a part where I was working in a technology position in what looked like a large high school gym or event space with only windows near the ceiling. There were large TV screens on the wall and our workspaces were open cubicles in circles – 5 to a circle, I think. The computer screens were flatscreens and the computers were PCs. We had a cartoon of some sort (maybe a collective game?) on the TV screen to run in the background as we worked. I thought it was funny how as adults, we worked well with cartoons playing at work.
There was a part where I had a boss and he dressed as Hitler for some reason. I returned some kind of form, turned back to my coworkers and said, “What am I to do when my boss is literally Hitler?”
I remember being in a school designed similar to the middle school I went to with a courtyard in the center (I think this is related to the hospital my friend just had her baby in). We had a schedule to keep to like school, but I think it was a conference.
I remember someone complaining that there was an IT all staff meeting that had free food, but we were no longer IT, so we had to find food elsewhere. I saw a perfect untouched lemon poppy seed muffin in the trash. I took it out and ate it. It was OK, but it was small and didn’t even rise above the paper.
I also went to the all staff meeting for more free food. No one said anything to me about it.
There, a friend from a past job said her husband was DJ-ing someplace in the city. I thought this was weird since the guy is usually shy in waking life. I later asked her if he had a website, but, as usual in the dream, that question was ignored because they thought I’d offer to create one for them…for a price.
