The Expendables: Behind Enemy Lines

Dream 1

Last night I remember part of several of my dreams, one dream took place at my parent’s house, and I found my little cousin JE in the house; he had sneaked from my grandfather’s house to my parent’s house without permission.

I told him that he was not supposed to do that and I sent him back to my grandfather’s house, and then I went to use the bathroom; after using the bathroom I started to wash my hands, but then my cousin JE jumped into the bathroom.

I was annoyed and I told him that fortunately I had just finished using the bathroom before he jumped in & once again I told him that he was not supposed to sneak around without permission inside of people’s houses; he was acting like it was a game, he is just a little kid, so I tried to explain the situation in a way that he could understand while I walked him back to my grandfather’s house myself.

Dream 2

The next dream that I remember took place at a college, one that looks different from most of the colleges in my dreams, and I think that the beginning of the dream took place in one or more classrooms.

I think that the semester was nearing an end and we had a project, but I could be wrong, I forgot what class it was; I either had not finished my project and/or I had missed a lot of classes or something, and I might have been a bit worried about failing the semester.

I think that I had an A or a B so far, those were guesses even in the dream, and if I did badly on the project I hoped to at least get a C as my final grade; I remember being at my grandfather’s house in his kitchen thinking about this at some point after leaving the class.

I think that I turned in my project the next day to my teacher who was a woman with whitish colored skin & blond colored hair, who was a bit mean, and then I went to an underground-like gym at the college.

It seemed to be underground since there were no windows and it felt like we were underground, there was a variety of exercise equipment, and I was looking for an elliptical trainer/elliptical machine; so that I could test one to see if I could use it as an alternative to jogging, since jogging is hard on my body, so I can not jog as much as I would like.

There were mostly women exercising, as I looked around for an elliptical trainer/machine; and at some point I asked one of the workers at the gym, who was the actor Justin Long, if they had an elliptical trainer/machine.

I described the machine to him and he showed me a machine that he thought was an elliptical trainer/machine, and so I started to use it; and it seemed to have some resistance which I could feel, so it seemed that I would get a good workout if I used it long enough.

After a short workout I left the gym but I can not remember what happened next except that above ground outside, I saw a lot of soldiers gathering, and I was a soldier.

This dream was one of my rare dreams that I have sometimes that involves some historical & other information from older wars like the World Wars, sometimes with real & fictional parts, and sometimes I am seeing or experiencing this about several countries, but this time it was about The United States (or a fictional USA) it seemed but I do not think that any country was ever mentioned.

Instead of seeing scenes from wars & battles with historical & other information being shown or narrated, I was experiencing this myself, which happens sometimes but this one was all about the experience.

We were gathering on flat land near a school maybe, we seemed to have older olive drab-colored uniforms without armor other than a helmet, and we were gathering to get orders from a general; this seemed to be an emergency gathering where they quickly rounded up a bunch of new recruits/drafted soldiers, I was one of them.

The general, at least I am guessing that he was a general, said that many of us were to be sent on a secret mission where we would be dropped behind enemy lines into the ocean/sea, we would have to make our way to land, and then travel to an enemy position to steal something; and then return it to our side.

It was a very dangerous mission, a suicide mission, and I think that he was using only new soldiers who had just finished basic training or who had not even finished basic training; I guess that the situation was serious and he did not want to lose any experienced men (I only remember seeing male soldiers at this point), I guess us newer soldiers were not worth much or anything to them.

We did not have a choice, who ever was picked had to do the mission, and then the general or officer sent us to an airplane to leave for the mission immediately; I was pretty numb about the situation, I was not afraid to die, I did not want to be in the war but I was chosen & I decided to go along with the war for a reason or reasons that I can not remember, I wanted to finish the mission hoping that it would help bring an end to the war, I just wanted the war to end, and probably possible future wars too.

On our way to the airplane, some of the soldiers were scared and/or crying and/or sad, but I was numb & focused; and an old military veteran who was watching us gather came to give us some encouragement, and he started to talk with me.

He told me a bit about his experiences in war and he asked me if this was my first war, I said yes, and I told him that I just wanted the war to end & I was tired of these unnecessary wars & I wish that I could stop them or something like that.

He told me that even though war is bad that it has its purpose(s), that it had its place in life & that there was nothing wrong with me wanting the war to end, but that war a necessary evil in life or something like that; and that it should not be completely eliminated and/or that it can not be completely eliminated.

I told him my reason or reasons that I participated in this war, normally I probably would have refused & accepted jail/death/banishment, but I can not remember what I told him; I remember him telling me that he had learned some good things from war too, that it was not all bad, and that though he experienced many bad things in war, that he was better because of it.

Though we did not completely agree, I thanked him for talking with me & encouraging the others, and then the other soldiers & I connected one large parachute that was stronger than a normal parachute, to ourselves; so we were all connected to one parachute.

The military veteran wished us well and then the rest of us left in the airplane, once we reached enemy territory, we parachuted with our joint parachute into the ocean/sea; we were on now on our own, and we were a long way away from land.

It was going to take a few days to reach land I think, so we would have to swim & float for a few days, many of us died during the journey; some drowned, some were attacked by sharks & other animals, some got sick, some died of dehydration, and the enemy fired artillery on us when we first hit the water.

I forgot to mention that, when we hit the water, artillery was fired around our location; it was pretty realistic, and some of us died.

Days later the rest of the survivors and I reached a river, we followed that to avoid detection until we got close enough to the enemy position, but more people died of snake bites & other things during this part too; it was a long & depressing trip, but I was still numb  & focused on completing the mission.

Many men died, so only a few of us were left, and I seemed to be in charge now due to my numbness & focus; it was truly a suicide mission now it seemed, since we barely had enough men left, but that allowed us to sneak around better.

We reached land at some point in our trip that took days, we came across some kind of animal(s), but I can not remember what happened exactly but I think that a few more of us were killed; and then we found the enemy position, and we sneaked into their camp to steal whatever we were sent to steal, I can not remember what it was, it was several things actually.

Inside of one of their buildings we found most of what we were to steal and some women, who were not soldiers, helped us find the rest, and they led us/me to an upper floor; I think that I sent the others with the rest of the stuff that we stole, to wait for me away from the camp, and I went with the women to steal the last item or items.

I am not sure who the women were or why they were helping us, but they led me to an all female area on an upper floor, where there was a bathroom with showers/dressing rooms/& various other things; and they were hiding me there away from the women in charge of this area & other women who would turn us in if they knew what was going on.

I am not sure if I had the last item or items or not, but I remember that the women & I were trying to move to another location; but we had to avoid several other women & at some point one of the women in charge came to check on things, and I barely avoided being seen.

We were trapped on the upper floor at this point, hoping for an opening to escape, but I woke up as we waited.

Dream 1

I barely can remember any of my dreams from last night, but I do know that one of the dreams took place at a college that is sometimes in my dreams, during the day mostly.

I might have been in a dorm-like area during some of the dream, which is connected to the  rest of the college, and I remember talking with several people; one of whom was an unknown woman.

I remember talking with her on a balcony-like area by the dorm-like area, as we watched people coming & going from the college.

Some other parts of the dream probably took place in or near some classrooms, the cafeteria, the library, a mall-like lobby area, and the parking lot; but that is all that I can remember.

Dream 2

I had some other dreams too, but I can not remember them really, I do remember one of them involving several people debating about a decision of some kind; I think that it had something to do with selecting leaders for something, but I could be wrong.

Escape From The Racist Neighborhood

I woke up several times this morning feeling like I had been drugged by the CIA again or something, so I was in & out of consciousness & I had a variety of dreams & semi-daydreams, but I forgot most of them unfortunately. 😀

Dream 1

I think that one dream involved most of my family and I going out into the woods to visit my brother CC’s girlfriend, but I could be wrong; either way we went to a neighborhood in the woods.

We visited a family at a nice house, things went well, but as we were about to leave something happened; I think that some neighbors or people in the neighborhood saw us, they made some racist remarks, and I think that they were threatening to harm us but they seemed to be afraid to attack us alone so they seemed to be calling other people around the neighborhood to attack us.

We decided to leave to avoid conflict but during our escape several people in the neighborhood saw us leaving & they either tried to follow us or they started to gather weapons & equipment to attack us, but our automobile broke down or something, because I remember several of my brothers & I sneaking through the woods trying to avoid being seen by people in the neighborhood who were hunting us.

It was getting dark, we would walk on the road, but when we would hear automobiles or voices; we would hide in the woods.

I think that my family split into two teams, so that we would be harder to find, one team was probably my mom & dad & KD & TD, and the second team was probably CC & GC & I.

We saw people riding in & on the back of trucks with flashlights & guns, most of them followed the hillbilly / redneck stereotypes with country accents, and we could hear them talking as they seemed to be enjoying hunting us; but I was pretty confident that we would escape as long as we stayed hidden when they drove by, and then if we kept walking/running when we had a chance.

I guess we abandoned our automobile on the side of the road or we hid it in the woods, I am not sure which, but that is all that I can remember.

Dream 2

I had several other dreams that I can not remember, some of which I probably went in & out of as I woke up & as I went back to sleep several times, one of which involved an unknown place probably near water that was in several of these dreams.

This dream looked more like you would expect a dream to look, it was brighter & clearer than in real life, like a paradise; and there were several dreams & semi-dreams that took place in this dream world, but I can not remember those unfortunately.

For some strange reason I was not in this dream, but I was seeing things like a camera person, and on the land near the water was a small building that probably looked like a small station where people wait for a train or bus or boat or something like that; and I think that there was a bridge that went across the water, which was like a sea or lake or ocean.

I think that a dock was near this area as well, but oddly no one else was around the area at this point except one man; I guess that most of the people were being transported over the bridge or water, and that the man was waiting for the transport to return or something.

The man had whitish colored skin and I think that he had orangeish/blondish/brownish colored hair, but as he was walking around waiting, he found a thin naked woman with whitish colored skin & reddish colored hair laying face first near the station-like building.

She appeared to be dead or unconscious, I am not sure which, and the man looked around to see if anyone else was around or seeing this; but no one else was around, and so he checked to see if the woman would respond & he turned her over on her back but she did not respond or wake up.

He tried talking to the woman & shaking her a bit, but she did not respond or wake up; I think that the man assumed that she was dead, but I am not sure, since I was not in the dream & I could not read his thoughts & he was not talking out-loud.

Even though I was not in the dream I was concerned for the woman, I was confused about the situation, I wondered how did she get there, I wondered why was she naked, I wondered if she was dead or alive, I wondered what had happened to her, and I wanted to get her some help and/or help her.

The man then started to act suspicious once he realized that no one was around & that the woman was either dead or in a coma, I feared that he would sexually assault the woman, but I was not in the dream to do anything about it; and then the man seemed to be attempting to sexual assault the woman or her dead body.

I tried to enter the dream to stop him and/or try to see if I could tell him to stop, but I woke up.

I had some positive dreams before that dream, in this dream world, but I can not remember them.

The Family Bus

I barely remember any of my last dream, which took place in a slightly fictional version of D during the day in the shopping center where Subway is in real life, but in the dream there were some fictional businesses there.

Some members of my mom’s side of the family had a bus that they were using to try to transport some of the family out-of-town for a short trip or vacation, but they had stopped at the shopping center to shop, eat, drink, and talk.

I remember my aunt DE being a bit annoying & I remember her trying to rush everyone so that they could leave in the bus, there were some scenes that took place inside of some of the businesses, but I can not remember them exactly; but I know that I met one or more people, and I was talking with them.

I might have known the person or persons who I was talking to, I can not remember, I just remember seeing various family members through-out the dream; and I remember that it was almost time for everyone to leave on the bus, and I was not sure if I was going to ride on the bus with them or not.

There was more to the dream, but I have forgotten all the details.

The Boot Camp Experience

Dream 1

Last night I barely remember part of two dreams, with the first dream taking place at an unknown location, and I was participating in a boot camp that was for people who were thinking about going to the military or people who wanted to get ready for the military or people who just wanted to see what the boot camp experience was like; and there were kids-adults there, so I guess there was no age limit.

A former drill instructor or someone was in charge, he was a strong-looking man with medium-dark brownish colored skin & black colored hair, and he wore a combat uniform with the t-shirt, pants, and boots.

We were inside of a strange building that had indoor & outdoor areas with several floors, we were on an upper floor that led to a strange almost cave-like area on the floor above our sleeping area, it was a strange building; our sleeping area was on a stairway down to the real floor where most of the beds were, some of the beds were on the stairs, it was odd, but things were set up to not make us comfortable & to simulate harsher conditions.

We did not get much sleep, the drill instructor was mean & loud, we did not eat much, we did a lot of drills & exercises, but we were actually learning things & getting tougher; and we were learning how to work as a team and how to better work alone.

The dream took place over several days & weeks probably, our boot camp experience seemed to do a good job of simulating a variety of environments & situations, and we learned a lot more than I expected; but I woke up at some point.

Dream 2

The next dream took place in a fictional version of D near the old C plant, in an area that is sometimes in my dreams, and I remember talking with one or more people; and at some point I think that my cousin EE came while a former classmate of mine & I were talking.

I had not seen her in many years, so the three of us talked, but suddenly we started to see some large frogs jumping around near us; and one of the frogs jumped toward me & so I ducked, but it hit EE in the face.

She did not see the frog and so she thought that I had hit her in the face, so she got mad, and I kept trying to explain that a frog had hit her in the face but she did not believe me; and I was offended that she thought that I had slapped her, and so I kept trying to prove my innocence as we argued about the situation as we walked to my parent’s house.

My former classmate saw what had happened and he tried to explain that I was telling the truth, but EE still did not believe us; I offered to take a polygraph/lie detector test, and I offered to pay for her to have the DNA on her face tested to prove that a frog did hit her in the face.

It really bothered me that my cousin thought that I had slapped her and that I was lying about it, even though it was not true, she started to consider my offer(s); but I woke up.
