Backing Up Data & They Wind & Demon Ghost & A Public Bathroom?

All that I can remember of this dream is that part of it involved me trying to back up / store data / stuff for my brother CC & my sister-in-law JC.

In another part of the dream, my brother GC & I were talking, and he mentioned some old TV shows that we used to watch back when we were kids.

Daenerys Targaryen’s Database?

Source: IMDb

I did not record most of my dreams or most of this dream, and so all of my dreams are forgotten now except for barely part of one dream.

This dream involved the character Daenerys Targaryen from the television show Game Of Thrones having a database on a computer of her future and / or current subjects (citizens).

I have no idea how she had this database and what information was being collected and stored in this database or how this information was being gathered, but I assumed that somehow she / they were spying on people and storing information about them in this database.

I assumed that this database would be used to help her as she ruled her kingdom.

Daenerys was dead now so she probably did not get a chance to use the database much or at all, and so I wondered what was going to be done with this database.

I can not remember if I was in the dream or not, if I was in the dream then I probably was by the computer where the database was stored, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

My Mom Wants To Buy A New House

Dream 1

This dream took place inside a fictional old white rectangular wooden one-story house where I lived with most of my family and my mom, my brother GC, and my brothers TDC and KDC were there visiting during a break from college it seemed.

I spent most of the dream in the living room where most of my brothers were, and at some point my mom walked through and I somehow figured out that it seemed that she was about to go look at a house that was for sale.

I started to question my mom trying to pry some answers from her, she can be pretty private, and I managed to get bits and pieces of information that kept allowing me to guess other details correctly.

I found out and guessed that she hoped to buy a new house (it was not literally new) that was a larger multi-story house that was for sale somewhere, and she was about to go look at it soon to decide if she would buy it or not.

She would not tell me where it was but I assumed that it was somewhere in the city possibly on the outskirts, even if she decided to not buy it, she still planned to keep on looking until she found another house to buy.

Once she buys a house she planned on slowly having our house taken apart one room at a time until there was not enough rooms left for us to use, during that time we would use The E House when necessary until we could move into the new house, but I thought that was odd to have the house slowly taken apart like that.

I felt that we should move into The E House temporarily while they tear down the old house, then move the new house where the old house used to be, and then we move into the new house.

Either way I was excited about this and I wanted to go with my mom to see the house, and I wanted to be part of future house searching until we find one to buy.

I am not sure where my dad was, for some reason he is not in my dreams as much as my mom, maybe because he spends most of the day outside the house (working on various jobs, and unnecessarily raking leaves / grass / the ground / nothing et cetera and some minor yard work for hours 😀 ) or something but who knows.

I told my mom to let me know when she was ready to go, and then I started to look around the house noticing things that belonged to the previous owners including a small storage closet with mostly empty medical supplies like empty band-aide wrappings.

I wondered why was some of the previous owners stuff still here, and I imagined the previous owners possibly being family members of my sister-in-law JC.

I then heard my brothers TDC and KDC talking about wanting to watch the first Blade movie but they did not have the video on their computers so I told them that I had it on my computer, but when I looked on my computer I did not see it so I downloaded it from FMovies.

While I waited for it to download and for me to copy it to a USB flash drive I noticed that one of my brothers and my brother GC were wearing the same outfit and they had braids that looked almost the same and they looked almost the same so I had to look at them closely to tell them apart.

I mentioned this to them and my brother GC said that he had given our other brother one of his shirts which happened to look the same as the one that he was wearing, and I told them how their braids seemed to be matching with half of the braids ending at the front of their heads and the other half ending at the back of their heads (which is a style that my brother GC tries sometimes).

The movie finished downloading and copying over and I put it on one of the computers, and I let my brothers know.

I then started to look up houses for sale, but I woke up.

Dream 2

This dream possibly took place at the same house from the first dream or at a house that was very similar to it, and in this dream the musician Lorde (Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor) and I were in a relationship of some kind.

We were inside the house having sex and we would stop and change sex positions each time that she had an orgasm, and so we possibly tried six or more sex positions (missionary, doggy style, cowgirl, sitting and kneeling, standing, sideways, et cetera) while also trying various variations within each of those positions during the first time we had sex in the dream.

Later we had sex again using the same approach, but this time we tried even more sex positions and variations within each of those positions and there were even more orgasms.

After having sex the second time I learned that Lorde had teamed up with maybe a research company who specializes in collecting and sharing data from libraries, companies, governments, individuals, organizations, scientists, et cetera for research purposes et cetera.

She not only was helping to promote them but she allowed them to collect some data from this house, and so certain devices in the house were sharing certain kinds of data with their systems.

It seemed that libraries were possibly one of the main participates with the research company sharing data on their library collections and how often those items check out et cetera, but others could share various kinds of data from certain devices that they already own or possibly custom devices that they could get or buy from the research company.

The research company would gather and organize and share the data with those who participated.

I walked around the house with Lorde who was possibly explaining some of this to me while showing me some of the devices that were sharing data while explaining what kind of data they were sharing and why and the privacy policy et cetera.

I think that we got interrupted by her manager or whoever who was a thin somewhat older man with light-color skin, and so she probably left with him but I woke up as I continued to explore the house looking for the devices sharing data with the research company.

The United States Of Languages: An Analysis Of Duolingo Usage State-By-State

The Making Duolingo Blog has an interesting article about their analysis of some of last year’s language learning patterns on Duolingo that I read called The United States Of Languages: An Analysis Of Duolingo Usage State-By-State:

https://making.duolingo.com/the-united-states-of-languages-an-analysis-of-duolingo-usage-state-by-state

It was nice of Duolingo to release that data because it is interesting learning about some of the language learning patterns on Duolingo, I was able to predict some of the outcomes, but some of the data surprised me.
