I had this dream almost immediately after I went to sleep last night, and I can only remember part of the end of this dream.
I remember being inside a windowless building following a man with whitish-colored skin with maybe medium-length brownish-colored hair, and for some reason he seemed suspicious to me and so that is why I was following him.
This dream was possibly inspired by me briefly researching anti-snoring devices (snoring aids) before going to bed.
All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it involved sleep: sleeping, sleeping positions, maybe sleep disorders (snoring, sleep apnea, et cetera), maybe sleep related jobs, maybe treatments for sleep disorders, maybe dreams, sleep research and helping solve mysteries involving sleep and inventing new ways to help people with sleeping disorders, et cetera.
Some of the dream involved me trying to sleep and comparing sleeping positions and my discomfort while trying to sleep, and there was a competition with an obstacle course involving a race among people who were racing each other to finish the obstacle course first and this somehow had something to do with sleep and maybe dreams but that is all that I can remember of this dream.
All that I can remember of this dream is that it started during the day at a college campus, I was walking toward a courtyard-like area where there was a large college concession stand outside, and I had past memories of how this area used to look so maybe I used to be a student at this college.
In my past memories Natalie Tran from the YouTube channel CommunityChannel was a student at this college, she had a small concession stand in this area, and next to her concession stand was maybe a small college concession stand or some kind of other type of stand owned by the college.
Natalie (Nat) was using her small concession stand to try to earn a bit of money as she went to college it seemed, and eventually she got an old vending machine with candy next to her concession stand so that she could earn money even during the times that her concession stand was closed.
The old vending machine was the type that the candy that was not packaged individually so the candy was poured into separate containers together, and a certain amount of candy would fall out into your hands after you put your coins in and select the candy you want and turn a lever (whatever).
Eventually the college expanded their college concession stand to be much larger, and now I had returned to the college for the first time in a while to see if Natalie’s concession stand and vending machine was still there and to see how things looked now after maybe a few years had passed I assume.
I saw the new expanded college concession stand but Natalie’s concession stand and vending machine was gone, and so I assume that the college had made her close it and get rid of her vending machine because they probably did not want competition.
This was disappointing because I had hoped to talk to Natalie and visit her concession stand and see her old vending machine, I wanted to talk to her about how things used to be and compared them to how things are now, and ask her about the history of her concession stand and vending machine.
I then noticed in the distance across the courtyard and/or near and/or in a parking lot that Natalie and some kids (maybe family members, one of them was a boy wearing glasses with black hair in a bowl-style haircut with the same skin color as her who looked like one of her family members) and maybe a few adults/students were standing near maybe a stand or booth-like structure, and so I walked over to talk with her and ask her what happened to her concession stand and vending machine.
Natalie saw me walking over and she made a facial expression like she was wondering why this unknown man was walking toward her, she seemed a bit uncomfortable and confused, and then I greeted her and she tried to politely force a smile and respond even though she was clearly a bit afraid/nervous/cautious.
I told her that I remembered her concession stand and vending machine that she used to have, she assumed that she knew what I would ask or say next so she started to respond to what she assumed, but she was wrong so I let her know that I was actually going to ask her something else.
I asked her what happened to her old vending machine and concession stand, I told her that I assumed that the college had made her get rid of it and close her stand to avoid her competing with their college concession stand, and she responded but I can not remember her responses.
I think that the college made her get rid of the vending machine first, they gave a reason that made no sense and that was probably just an excuse, but they probably had other motives and that was probably just their first step in trying to get her to close her concession stand.
That failed to get her to close down her concession stand so then they probably claimed that she had to close her stand because they needed more space to expand, the probably gave conflicting excuses and reasons as well, and I assume that she then closed her stand.
I am not sure if she was possibly trying to make a new stand in this new location or not, I just remember briefly talking with her instead of talking with her longer like I had wanted to, and then I said goodbye and I started to walk away.
As I walked away I suddenly heard a male voice starting to narrate the dream like a film (movie) narrator for a film trailer with a deep voice speaking in a film trailer tone, and the male voice said something like:
“A film or story from and/or about and/or inspired by one of the most powerful dreamers of all time (which I assume was me, I disagreed with being considered one of the most powerful dreamers of all time, but it did sound nice). (He said a few other things that I can not remember)”
The dream was still going on but now I felt like part of it was becoming a live film trailer with me as the main character so I walked and acted cool, and there were dramatic sound effects and music and slow-motion effects as I walked and as the narrator talked.
Suddenly a bed appeared in front of me with an old scary-looking shriveled up woman laying in the bed dying it seemed, and a female nurse or woman was next to her bed with her.
The scary old shriveled up dying woman probably had no teeth and she sat up in bed reaching toward me and she could only make a sound effect like a weak: ahhhh moaning-like sound when someone is dying or a light-zombie-like sound effect.
Instead of recoiling in fear and backing away I calmly moved toward her and I put my head against her forehead, and then I either jumped into another dream or woke up into another dream or something like that and there were some sound effects made to mark this transition (maybe Inception trailer-like sounds) and the narrator probably compared this film to the film Inception and The Matrix and several other films.
In this new dream I remember being with a woman with white skin with short brown hair, maybe the woman who had been next to the dying woman but I am not sure, but I can not remember what happened during this part.
After that part the woman and I were transitioned to possibly another dream in the distant past, the woman was wearing animal skin clothing and she had primitive weapons, and we were both in the middle of a battle next to a river.
Our tribe/village/group/whoever was battling another tribe/village/group in a war it seemed, we stayed close to each other and we fought bravely watching each other’s backs, and we were probably outnumbered.
There was a time jump to after the battle and I was waking up like I had been knocked unconscious during the battle near the river, and I saw the woman under the water unconscious and drowning.
I reached in the river and I pulled her out, she woke up, and then a man from our tribe walked over to let us know that he was glad that we were alive.
He was part of the reinforcements/reinforcements who had arrived to help us because we were outnumbered and we were losing when they arrived, I guess the woman and I had been knocked unconscious during this, but we were alive now and our tribe had won this battle for now at least (the enemy probably retreated for now).
We were tired and sore and we looked around at the dead bodies on the land and in the water, it was a bit depressing, we sat there glancing around and making sure that we both were okay as the reinforcements helped the wounded and gathered the dead.
I was glad to have had a loyal and capable person fighting at my side and watching my back during the battle, and so I told the woman this and I told her that I am glad that she survived.
In the previous part that I can not remember this woman had been at my side in that dream, and so it seemed that we would keep jumping between dreams and time periods and worlds et cetera together like we were the main characters of this film that the trailer was talking about.
I woke up during this, this was probably all part of the trailer still, but I can not remember.
This could possibly be more than one dream but I am not sure so I will type it as one dream, it is possible that the dream started with me being in high school again and then graduating from high school again, and maybe the dream jumped several years later in the future; and it involved me returning to a fictional building where the BP/D Prison/Jail should be in maybe a fictional version of the city of D, and I would sometimes visit this building to buy food/drink at its concession stand/snack bar and spend some time inside and outside the building.
This building seemed to be for entertainment/recreation with areas inside and outside for people to eat, drink, talk, maybe play arcade games, games, sports, et cetera; and it seemed that I would visit it sometimes when returning home to visit, and there were some students outside making a music video and maybe that was part of a school project but I am not sure.
I went inside the building to buy something from the concession stand and my former male classmate MT was working at the concession stand so I talked to him as I was deciding what to buy, at some point the students who were making a music video came inside to buy something as well, and at some point I went to leave; and the dream jumped to me being in high school again or this was another dream.
I was back at the fictional high school that I graduated from, I was outside with some other students and some of them were former schoolmates and classmates of mine like maybe my former classmate AC and a few schoolmates who were older than me who(m) I can not remember, and one of my former male schoolmates or classmates with whitish colored skin whose name I can not remember (I think that he used to be friends with my former male classmate KC and/or some of the other somewhat bad/alternative students in school) was talking with me at some point.
At some point it was time to go into one of the school buildings, oddly it was an old multi-story movie theater building that was now owned by the school, and somehow my former male schoolmate or classmate got into an argument with the male leader of a small group/gang of fictional and real former male schoolmates of mine outside before we could get inside the building.
They were about to fight and I tried to calm the situation but it was not working and to my surprise the leader of the gang pulled out a pistol with a suppressor and he pointed it at the chest of my former male schoolmate/classmate while his gang backed him up like a coward instead of fighting him one-on-one in hand-to-hand combat, the situation became serious and this felt real and scary, and I tried to calm the situation again; but my former male schoolmate/classmate would not back down, and the leader and his gang were not backing down.
They continued arguing even as the leader pointed the pistol at my former schoolmate/classmate, the leader took the suppressor off of his pistol and then he pointed his pistol at and directly on the face of my former schoolmate/classmate while talking about killing him, and there was not much I could do at this point; and so I went into the building trying to escape, and I was not sure if they were going to come after me or not and try to kill me.
I moved through the stairway to different floors and into different rooms inside the movie theater trying to find an exit into another building but I could not find one, at some point I reached the top floor where I was trapped next to one of the rooms where people were sitting like they were going to watch a film, and so I was not sure what to do and I was not sure if my former classmate or schoolmate was still alive or not; and then the dream jumped in time or another dream started.
I was now in another school or college building, my former male classmate MT was in the dream again and we seemed to be in school or college again, and my former classmate MT had a fictional ex-girlfriend with light-brownish colored skin who was now dating another man/young man with dark-brownish colored skin with blackish colored hair; but I think that she supposedly/allegedly died at some point, and there was another time jump in the dream.
I was now on the upper floor of a college building in maybe a bedroom like room with a window where you could see the entrance of the building outside, somehow the parking lot outside was up to this upper floor, and outside in the hall not far from this room was my former male classmate MT again; and something strange happened where his supposedly/allegedly dead ex-girlfriend appeared to me, and this confused me because they told me that she had died.
She was possibly nude or topless and maybe she seemed a bit ghost-like when she first appeared but maybe she slowly returned to looking normal, she went to hug me oddly even though she was topless or nude and even though I did not know her really, and her current or previous boyfriend from when she supposedly died saw us hugging from outside the window near the entrance of the building; and he looked suspicious about what was happening as you would imagine, and this was all strange and confusing and awkward for me as well and I did not want people to misinterpret what was going on.
I told her that my former classmate MT and her boyfriend thought that she was dead, I possibly gave her some clothes to put on, and I took her to see my former classmate MT; and she acted like she still had feelings for him, and then her boyfriend from when she supposedly died entered the building seeing them talking and once again he looked suspicious as you would imagine.
I greeted him and I explained the situation to him and the three of them started talking, it was a bit awkward at first but they did not fight, and it seemed that she was not dating either of them anymore but that she was possibly interested in dating my former classmate MT again; but it was a bit unclear with how she was acting toward all three of us, I did not want to get involved, but I did watch them briefly to make sure that they would not fight.
Once I realized that things were good between them I decided to leave to give them some privacy, the situation was still confusing, and I can not remember what she told us about her alleged death or her death; it is possible that she was a ghost or that she came back to life or that she faked her death or that she was no longer human, but I can not remember what she said.
I left on foot until I reached my parents’ yard during the day and the weather was strange outside, I saw my mom in the yard and I greeted her as we walked to the house, but then I saw and heard and felt a tornado forming in the distance in the direction of The BP Library which was scary and realistic; and I yelled for my mom to run inside the house after showing her the tornado, but for some unknown reason my mom ran to her automobile so I had to yell for her to return to the house again.
You could hear and feel the wind as the tornado moved, objects were starting to get pulled into the air as it moved, and it was getting closer as my mom and I ran toward the house; and we could feel the pull of the tornado starting so we did not have much time, but I woke up as we were entering the house in a panic to warn the others and hide.
All that I can remember of the end of my dream is that I was inside a large dimly lit windowless school or college-like building, I remember being in a large room with beds that reminded me of the middle room at E Manor, and other students were there as well including my former male classmate LT.
We had a limited number of beds so several of us were going to share a bed including my former classmate LT, an obese man who reminded me of or who was Felix from the television show The Strain, and another man; and I remember Felix and the other man laying on the bed as my former classmate LT and I sat on the floor, and we talked.
I remember thinking up a goofy/wacky idea and then I realized that this idea would probably make a good, simple, creative, fun, and unique video game; and I told this to the others, it was such a good idea that I wanted to record it so that I could remember it for later, but unfortunately I can not remember the idea now.
I remember part of my last dream from last night that was somewhat inspired by the movie Aliens, which I watched part of last night before going to sleep, and all that I can remember of the dream is that at some point I was with some of my family during the day at a shopping center like the one where the Goodwill Computer Store used to be in the city of LC.
I can not remember most of the dream so most of the parts of the dream that were inspired by the movie Aliens are missing, I remember walking outside on the covered walkway, and there was a friendly lion outside in the parking lot; but suddenly another lion ran across the parking lot to attack some of my family and I, but the friendly lion started fighting the other lion. (All of the lions in the dream were male lions)
