I was in back of a van I think Jonah (a PICA Driver) was driving. We ran into the backs of other vehicles in Columbus. We went to a hospital and I sat down. Ray* sat on the floor to the right of me. He touched my lower right leg as if he were healing it.
Later, Donna* and Henrietta* were sitting on both sides of me and one of them, on my left, was sharing a school textbook with me. It had four caterpillars on one page. The first two and the last one were black and white. The third one was yellow and black. During this time, Ray sat on the left arm of the chair to my left.

I can’t remember everything..
Something about keeping blurry pictures of Scott* (I had a crush on him in my dream) playing soccer in a black three-ring binder..a yellow stationary thing..Mark* thought the pictures were of him, he was also on the soccer team in my dream..he tried to get the pictures, thinking I had a crush on him..
I didn’t want to show them to him because the pictures were so blurry it could look like him, and that I did have a crush on him..I remember after playfully fighting with him for awhile, he ended up with his arms around me..and later I found out, he got the pictures from my binder..
I also remember sleeping or laying on an instrument shelf..
In another dream, I told someone, that someone else was mad at me for having pictures of Charlie*..
In another dream, I had a picture of Scott hanging off a jungle gym and I made the picture move like a movie..
Then, in another dream, I was drawing a house or a shop..

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 woke up in my dream to find my parents and the cast of Stargate SG-1 were hurrying packing. I asked why and they said we had to get off this earth. Whatever, I didn’t understand that. I got into the closet and found my white blouse and a light blue one like it and Mom took it and put it in a suitcase.
Oh, I woke up from hearing a scream from someone as if they were falling down a tunnel. Found out that someone near the iris (which was open and engaged) and the floor gave away and they fell through. All I remember seeing is this huge black hole where the floor fell through. Someone tried to put a wooden board there to walk across, but it didn’t go all the way across it started at the iris and ended approximately 3 inches from the floor edge. It was just floating on air. They said we couldn’t cross.
I went into the house a little more. It was huge, very very huge! My bedroom was two times the size of my real one and the family room was two times the size the real one. Pumpkin (my cat) was still alive and I remember looking at a picture taken of her. It was a good picture of her. I remember then the Friends‘ cast came in and Joey fell through the hole. I can’t remember where Monica went off to. Phoebe and Rachel were arguing about how Phoebe had won a lot of money in Vegas and didn’t tell Rachel. Rachel put an ugly rug over the empty spot on the floor and Phoebe dared her to walk across and she got half way across and then asked Phoebe to give her some of the loot if she made it.
Then, that merged into a dream where Dad was rich and people were after him. I remember something about a bathroom with a brown door (painted) and looking at the roll of toilet paper (single roll). He told us to get ready for the plane trip. I am so scared of planes and I have this rule: don’t get on a plane if the flight number has double numbers, a 1, or 0 in it. I knew in my dream that I wrote down the flight number and time in my dream I looked it up and I wanted to remember this stuff. I remember the number “22” in the flight number, the flight was supposed to leave at 7 or 8:05 a.m., and we were going either to northern or southern Ohio. I kept having this bad feeling and said we shouldn’t go and I kept stalling.
Then, we got in a boat to get to the airport, but the guys that were after Dad put holes in the boat and it sank so we couldn’t leave on time. The bad guys got our two suitcases full of money and I guess we sold our tickets to Michael Jackson. I remember later watching a tribute to Michael Jackson on VH1 because he died in that plane crash in the dream.
Note from July 2015: I stopped being afraid of planes a long time ago.
Note from December 2015: I took a discovery flight lesson in August and plan on eventually getting lessons and a flight license.
A couple of nights ago, I dreamed that I was dressed up all fancy and there was a limo and a chauffeur waiting outside. The chauffeur was telling us to hurry up. It was dark outside. I sat in the middle of the back seat of the limo. It was built like a station wagon or minivan.
Later, an exchange student (from China, I think) was supposed to be my date for the night, but instead of sitting next to me, he sat “Indian style” on the floor to my right. Then, a girl about my age or a year older, wearing a light blue outfit, sat to my left. She was supposed to be dating my ex-boyfriend (from the dream, not in real life) that had dark brown hair and was sitting in the middle row of seats. Then, a little girl, maybe 9 years old sat to my right. I was helping her with her homework and looking at her coloring book. Someone got the idea that the girl sitting to my left and I should switch dates and outfits and we did.
In another part of the dream, it was light and we (some friends that were mostly girls, but some were guys, and I) went driving around a city, like Columbus or something, in a car. Again, I was sitting in the middle of the back. My friend sitting next to me said she had a map and said that the “Applelation” is supposed to be around here. We went by a building (under construction) and I remember a mural of green apples were painted on the side. I asked if that was it and she said yes. She kept telling the rest of the crew, “The Applelation was back there!” They didn’t listen. We turned left on a street nearby and I remember this piece of machinery. It ended up being a piece of a carnival ride or something. We got out of this car and went down a small incline in the road that was made out of brick.
