A Reality TV Birthday Party | School Again

Dream 1

This dream took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of DeRidder, my family and I got invited to a rich woman’s birthday party that was to take place outside by & maybe at W Park; and the birthday party was to be filmed as part of a reality TV show episode.

We arrived at the birthday party as it was being filmed, and the rich woman was very demanding; and she was ordering people around with a lot of detailed & very specific requests.


A Birthday Surprise / Prank?

I remembered part of several dreams but I ended up forgetting all of them except for barely part of two dreams because I probably accidentally went back to sleep, I was doing several things at once later when I was trying to voice record my dreams and another dream came to my mind so I went to voice record that dream, but my last two dreams faded away while I was voice recording the older dream.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of the end of this dream is that I was on maybe an upper floor of a college or school-like building, and I probably walked from a hall with carpet into another hall with carpet where there were classrooms on both sides of the hall with classes taking place in some of them.

I remember shelving objects on one or more shelves on the right side of the hall, and I remember a female student with light-brown skin with dark-hair glancing at me a few times from a classroom as she sat in class.

At some point their class was over and the female student and some of her female friends / classmates walked over to me, and the female student who had glanced at me earlier asked me something that I can not remember that caught me off-guard and made me uncomfortable.

I can not remember what she asked or said or what I said, I just know that I said something to help get me out of the situation, and I sensed that the female student was probably interested in me.

She spoke English with an accent like she probably knew Spanish and was possibly from Mexico and / or The United States (Mexican American), I could not tell how old these students were but I assumed that they were either freshmen or sophomores in college or seniors in high school, either way that is too young in my opinion.

Whatever I said got me out of the situation for now, but I assumed that she would probably try talking to me again in the future because she was probably interested in me so I would have to try to figure out how to respond and handle the situation next time if I was correct about this to avoid making things even more awkward but I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in maybe a slightly fictional version of the city of D on Eastside in the neighborhoods across from The B Alternative School or a fictional city that was similar, and I was possibly outside walking or I was driving through the neighborhoods but I can not remember which.

At some point my former male classmate SS greeted me happily, he was either walking or driving, and he invited me somewhere that I can not remember and we ended up driving but I can not remember if we were in his automobile or my automobile or who was driving.

As we were driving some crazy things started to happen, one of which was it seemed that a woman possibly got shot and fell face first in the field near the church on the street that leads to the street in front of The B Alternative School, and things got even crazier and wilder from there as my former male classmate SS overreacted and started driving fast and crazy to escape the neighborhood (so he was driving).

I tried to get him to calm down and slow down, I probably wanted us to stop and help the woman, but he would not calm down or slow down or stop.

And other crazy things happened that I can not remember like people making a lot of noise and seeing crazy things happening around the neighborhood, but it all seemed possibly fake like I was being pranked and so it seemed that my former classmate SS was overacting intentionally as part of a possible prank.

Some of the people doing crazy things and the woman who supposedly got shot all looked like they were possibly friends and family members of Ryan Higa (Nigahiga) and maybe my former classmate SS (who is from South Korea), and so that also made me think that this was all some kind of huge prank that my former classmate SS and maybe Ryan Higa and others had set up for me for some unknown reason(s) so I assumed that maybe they were doing this for his YouTube channel (Nigahiga) or something like that.

I started trying to figure out why they would be pranking me like this, I then realized that it was my birthday (so maybe this dream took place in the future on my birthday because today is not my birthday), and so maybe this was all a huge birthday prank and surprise.

I assumed that my former classmate SS would drive me somewhere where the others would try to get to before us, I assumed that after we drove past them that they would immediately jump into automobiles to drive to the location using another route, so that they can surprise me with surprise birthday party when we arrive.

When I realized this possibility I started to get emotional, was it possible that my former classmate SS who I have not seen in years would return to set up this huge birthday prank and surprise for me?

I remember almost crying or slightly crying as I thought about this possibility and about what might happen when we reach where ever we were going, and so I played various possibilities in my mind.

I decided to enjoy the show and join in the possible prank fun so I started pretending to overreact as well to the craziness.

But I can not remember if we really reached the location and if I was correct about this being a birthday prank and surprise because I am not sure if the things that I remember were my daydreams of what might happen and / or if they are things that really happen.

This was one of the dreams that mostly faded from my mind, and so that is all that I can remember.

Playing Basketball Against A Younger Donald Trump Or A Fake Donald Trump

I am not sure if this is one dream or several dreams, and so I will type it as one dream.

All that I can remember of this dream is that one part of the dream felt somewhat like a high school class reunion because I remember meeting some of my former classmates for the first time in years, and I remember letting some of them know that it had been years since I have seen them.

Some of these former classmates included my former male classmates DH and SS and various others, and I remember us taking and hanging out and having fun but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

In the next part of the dream I remember sitting inside a windowless corporate lounge/waiting room-like brown room with carpet and various rows of seats, and there were other people there including my former female classmate AM.

I remember talking to my former classmate AM and I remember telling her about a dream or something that probably contained some pornography in part of the dream or whatever it was, I tried to be cautious when telling her about this dream or whatever it was, and so I tried to not be too graphic and descriptive when I told my story to her.

At some point my parent’s and one or more of my brothers (who were kids again) arrived, and I left with them so that I could get a ride home I assume.

We walked outside to the parking lot, it was daytime, and my family was using a delivery-like truck or van with a bathroom with a bathtub in the back where stuff is usually stored so I remember taking a bath before we left and I remember drying off and putting my underwear on.

As I was trying to finish drying off and trying to get dressed Korey Coleman and Martin Thomas from Double Toasted and some other people were on the truck or van with us, and my parent’s said that we were driving to a birthday party that my brothers were invited to by a male classmate of theirs who had whitish-colored skin with short brown hair whose mother was or reminded me of my former female classmate LB.

As my dad drove us to the birthday party as I dried off and as I got dressed Martin and Korey told me an old story about one of their former male classmates and neighbors who had whitish-colored skin with medium-to-long length medium-colored hair, and the story was about how this male classmate and neighbor of theirs once skipped school or left school early without permission.

Their former classmate and neighbor went around the neighborhood or somewhere like that skateboarding and/or skating and/or goofing around in the middle of the street like an idiot (their words), I assumed that something bad was going to happen to him, but before they could finish the story we arrived at the birthday party which was taking place at a nice white two-story house in a nice neighborhood.

I did not want to go to the birthday party and it seemed weird going to a kid’s birthday party as an adult who did not even know the kid and who was possibly not directly invited, but I needed a ride so I followed them inside the house but I am not sure where Korey and Martin and the other people who were not my family went.

Someone probably welcomed us inside and walked us through a kid’s bedroom, which I stayed in briefly as my family followed the person to the party, and I waited inside the kid’s bedroom trying to decide what to do because I did not want to go to the party but if felt weird standing in a kid’s bedroom so I walked to the party.

The party was taking place in the back yard which had a stadium-like area set up with a field to play sports and games, and there were even basketball courts and other areas set up around this area in covered areas near the seating areas and many people of all ages were there (basically the biggest birthday party I have ever been too in a dream or real life, and so it was like a public event like the city has sometimes so many people around the city seemed to be there) and there was a lot to do to my surprise as people: ate, drank, talked, listened to music, played sports, played games, competed in contests for prizes, danced, watched television, et cetera.

Some of my former classmates were there as well like my former male classmate WG who I said hello to by name as I walked by him, but oddly he did not respond to me so I kept walking.

During my walk through the covered areas around the field by the seating areas I saw a male celebrity with dark-brown skin with short black hair with a name that sounded like a rappers name talking with his friends, it seemed that he had committed a crime or did something wrong, and maybe he was bragging about it and his custom-made car (that was possibly made in Japan or Korea).

His friends ended up leaving him, one of them probably snitched (called the police on him), because after they left he noticed a news report on a television showing that he was now wanted by the police as he was showing me his car and bragging about it (he seemed to be the type of person who likes a lot of attention and who likes to show off and brag a lot to others to feel better about himself, and so he liked to spend a lot of money and show off his wealth and fame) and he had offered me a ride because his friends had left him so he had enough room now, and so he decided to leave immediately to run from and hide from the police.

He removed a protective cover from his car and he once again offered me a ride, but I politely declined because I did not want to get involved in his police situation so he drove away quickly.

After this I noticed a younger (maybe college age(ed)) Donald Trump or fake Donald Trump walking and talking and bragging to his friends, like the other male celebrity (assumed rapper) had done, and Mr. Trump or the fake Mr. Trump seemed to love having a lot of attention as well.

As they walked near the basketball courts I remember hearing Mr. Trump bragging about how he used to play basketball and how good he was, and so I challenged him to a friendly basketball match/game to see how good he really was even though I have not played basketball in a long time and I never played at the school or college level like he had (I only played little league basketball a few times as a kid, and sometimes for fun at home).

Mr. Trump accepted my challenge after I called him out in front of his friends and others making it harder for him to refuse, and then we started our basketball match against each other.

I remember doing pretty good because I remember Mr. Trump looking a bit worried and getting quiet and focused like he was focusing and trying very hard because he did not want to lose and he did not like to lose, and I could see and feel that he does not like losing or getting embarrassed (especially in front of his friends and others) so he really did not want to lose this challenge in front of his friends and others after bragging about how good he was at basketball.

I respected him for accepting my challenge and it was a good basketball match/game, it must have been a close game, and we went back and forth during this match/game; but I am not sure who was winning or if we finished the match/game or not before I woke up.

The end,

Dream 1

Both of the dreams that I barely remember from last night were probably partly inspired by maybe the Back To The Future films and the video game Life Is Strange (which Dashie finished playing recently), and all that I can remember of this dream is that it possibly involved time travel and multiple timelines.
