I had a few dreams where I was hanging out with Warren*. Nothing stands out, though.
I remember working on stuff we are doing at work – turning CT scan turned 3D models into something interactive.
I remember being at an outdoor wedding or event that took place on a pretty grass hill. We were all sitting at picnic tables. Warren* and Tammi* were nicely dressed and I hoped they’d sit at my table, but they sat at a table near the front before they saw me.
I remember eating cake or something with a reddish-purple fruit jelly inside. I kept asking what kind of fruit it was because I am allergic to raspberries and blueberries.
Note: This was also a reference to a dream I might add to this journal where I stopped eating a piece of raspberry cake and offered it to Warren* and Tammi* and Warren* excitedly jumped up and grabbed it. I pointed out where I ate it so he could eat from the other side, but he grabbed the fork and used it and ate the whole thing. I woke up wishing I had that in waking life – someone to enjoy and eat the food I’d normally have to throw out, but also be there when they can’t have certain food and I can.
So after not getting an answer, I shrugged and kept eating because it was tasty and I hate wasting food.
Later, the bridesmaids came out with large robin’s egg blue boxes with bows. There wasn’t enough for all the tables, so our table had to move to nearer the drop-off. I said I’d have to have my back to the drop off because it was so beautiful, I wouldn’t be able to focus. I described what I saw – the hill went down to a small pond and I said there was a fox or wolf or something down there. The wolf ran up the hill and to me and it was this REALLY LARGE wolf-like creature and it was so sweet! I got to pet it and hug it.
I remember driving and getting lost. I looked at an overhead view of the area and a map. One street I needed was Route 278 or Route 782 and it branched off from a large roundabout and I thought it was Athens, but it had a Leveque Tower-like skyscraper. Later, I ended up under an overpass area (looked a little like that one outdoor area of Glidden Hall) and some guy sang me a song. He was really nice.

I haven’t remembered my dreams in full for a while, but I remember at least two dreams having someone search for me, chase me through the dream, or hunt me. Nothing negative, though. It was more like I shouldn’t have been in the places I was so people were hunting me down to kick me out or give me a fine. One involved an aquarium, I think.
I remember a “dream game” where I had to hide in some restroom stalls. One was on fire. I remember knowing it was a game and tried to shoot a female “enemy” with a rifle of some sort. I felt bad about it because game or not, it was too realistic and I’m not a shooter – I rather stealth, melee, or friend enemies. I remember running from the room and knowing my way out of a maze of stalls.
Later, I remember being some sort of reporter and reporting on unique sporting events. One involved something like volleyball, but with just kicking and the players were not allowed to take their hands off the ground unless moving. Another “sport” was something to do with motorbikes in a canyon, but the people were mad I was there, so I had to sneak up on them. There was one part, too, where someone was looking for me/someone playing a certain dream game. I pretended to be asleep, thinking they wouldn’t know which game I was playing or just normally dreaming. It worked.
I woke up at a decent time, but I ended up passing out for another three hours.
All I remember from the dreams during those three hours were of being in a “dream game” (video game, but in a dream) where I had to escape a scene/encounter by climbing some brick building that reminded me of Bromley Hall. I remember thinking it was so cool that it was easy to climb (I had very little weight) and I could feel the texture of the bricks. Just like in video games, I was able to climb/jump up to areas of the building impossible in waking life. Each time I reached, a white sphere appeared over the area I could grip that was like the white spheres in Beyond: Two Souls.
One disappointing thing, though, was not being able to safely look down. I really wanted to, too.
I remember going to a customer service desks with clocks and posters and slideshows playing on monitors behind some people at the desk where they each had a phone and a computer, but also physical paper they were looking through.
I asked for Warren* by his full name and they looked to their right and he was taking a nap on the desk in front of his computer. He woke up when he heard his name and looked around really disoriented as if he didn’t know where he was.
I was like, “I asked for help and they randomly chose you!”
Later, I realized that was a lie (I had forgotten I asked for him by name) and tried to forget again so it wouldn’t seem like a lie because I was too embarrassed to admit I asked for him personally and then lied about it.
The next scene I remember was of him looking at an Excell sheet (helping me with taxes?) showing I had gone on three trips for “contract” work of some kind. He was nice and helpful as usual, but he seemed super sleepy and a bit confused about why he was there.
I wish I knew I was dreaming because then the dream wouldn’t have been so boring.
