In this dream I was staying at a hotel in a fictional city, and I went to a mall (shopping mall).
Various things happened that I can not remember as I walked around shopping, but I do remember a few things.
I remember seeing some people I knew like some former classmates and schoolmates.
I remember stopping in one area where an event was taking place in an open courtyard-like area inside the mall where people were sitting on the floor, there were several maybe professional football players there, and I sat on the floor near them during this event.
After that event I continued walking through the mall, I remember seeing a woman who looked like Sarah Silverman walking in my direction going in the opposite direction, and I not sure if it was really her or not.
I greeted her as we were walking past each other, she stopped, she greeted me back like we knew each other or something, I can not remember if we shook hands or hugged or fist bumped or not (we probably did), and we briefly talked like old friends or former classmates or something.
I remember Ms. Silverman asking me how a certain person whose name I can not remember was doing, I think that I told her that they were doing well the last time that I talked to them, and she said something back that I can not remember; and maybe I asked her a question, and she responded.
I think that Ms. Silverman asked me to pass on a message to someone, but I can not remember.
After this brief friendly greeting and conversation we said goodbye, I possibly told Ms. Silverman that I would pass on her message, we wished each other well, and we continued walking in opposite directions.
The last thing that I remember makes no sense, I was outside during the day in what looked like my parents yard, and something that I can not remember was happening where I was about to get involved in a situation where I was possibly going to stand up to a group and / or person and / or something like that.
I started giving a speech, and some people who were across the street on the street that The E House is on were listening to my speech which was inspiring them to possibly get involved as well.
But I woke up.
At about two hours or so before it was time for me to wake up to get ready for work, I woke up, and I could not really go back to sleep other than a few brief times even though I went to bed late and I needed the sleep.
During my battle to go back to sleep I had several short dreams / semi-dreams that involved my struggles trying to go back to sleep, thinking about waking up to get ready for work, thinking about work, and several other things.
One of those other things was of my dreaming about the character Major Motoko Kusanagi (The Major) from the animated Ghost In The Shell franchise trying to form / recruit a team for a special mission and / or for Public Security Section 9 (Section 9) and / or for a mercenary team.
During the dream The Major went around various locations recruiting people for her team, but that is all that I can remember of these short dreams.
