Narrating A Dream? | Imagining That I Own A Brick Building

Once again I went to bed not being able to breathe out of my nose and I did not go to sleep until after 3:00 AM because I was having a hard time sleeping as I alternated between not being able to breathe out of my nose to being able to breathe out of my nose, and I had several dreams; but I forgot all of my dreams except for barely part of two dreams that I barely remember.

Dream 1

I know that I had more dreams last night and I know that this dream was longer and clearly but unfortunately I can not remember those other dreams or most of this dream, but I think that I was narrating (if that is the correct word) the entire first dream I guess because I remember thinking about and talking about the dream out-loud during the dream; but I am not sure if I was directly in the dream or not, and I can not remember what I dreamed about exactly.

I think that part of the dream took place inside a fictional building that had several people inside of it and maybe some parts of the dream took place outside during the day but I can not remember the details of the dream, but I do remember giving my opinion of various things out-loud and describing things in the dream out-loud; but that is all that I can remember of this dream unfortunately.

Dream 2

The second dream took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of the downtown area in the city of D in the field near where the D Museum and maybe where the I Theater should be across the street from the C&T Store, and there was a small one-story abandoned reddish colored brick building in the small field; and I remember imagining if I owned that building to use it as a house.

So basically I was somewhat daydreaming/dreaming/semi-lucid dreaming in the dream because I was able to stand there visualizing myself owning the building, and I was able to visualize what changes I would make to the building while imagining what it would be like to live in it and I was even able to visualize another person (I have no idea of who she was, maybe my wife, but I know that she had whitish colored skin with almost shoulder length reddish colored hair) and I probably even visualized myself there with her; and by visualize I mean that I was literally able to see these changes happening before me, and I could make changes just by thinking them and I could even reset the building back to its original condition.

So I stood there making changes with my mind and watching those changes happen before me, and I watched as my fictional wife/whoever and the visualized/imagined version of myself lived at the building; but these moments were brief jumps in time, but I was even able to hear some of the conversations between my fictional wife and the visualized/imagined version of myself.

I heard their conversation when they first started cleaning up/fixing up the building after I/they bought it, they were both happy/excited and positive about the potential of the building, and they talked about what changes they would make to it/et cetera; and at some point I reset the building back to its original condition and my daydream/dream within a dream/semi-lucid dream/whatever ended.

I remember saying something out-loud to myself something like: “If only that/those things could really happen/were true/were real, because this building has potential, and I could really imagine myself owning it; and it is sad to see a building going to waste/wasting away like that.” and then I walked off smiling to myself and shaking my head from side-to-side horizontally knowing that it would probably never really happen/that I would probably never really get a chance to own the building; and I woke up.
