Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was possibly in the city of LC, I bought some Chinese-style food and was disappointed in it so I only ate part of it, and then I called BY Wok in the city of D telling them about this and they offered me a deal where they would trade one of the side dishes (food) on my plate for some of their food so I accepted and I drove back to the city of D where I was headed anyway.

This dream possibly took place during the evening, but I can not remember.

I reach the city of D and oddly BY Wok in this dream is in a fictional two-story house-like building, and inside the wife (one of the owners) greets me and she takes me to the second floor to a room where the restaurant is and it is one open room so even the kitchen is there and the husband (the other owner) is cooking something.

The wife and me talk briefly and then she tells me about some of the new items on their menu, and one of these items is a dessert where something that I can not remember is made on top of pecan praline (pecan candy).

I order my food and then I go to pay with the side dish from the Chinese food that I bought in the city of LC, the wife looks at it and it does not look good enough to her, and so she breaks our deal so then I had to pay with money and so I had to pay a little over $7 for my food.

I then walk to the seating area to wait for my food, there are children there now oddly, and they probably start talking to me.

A girl with dark-color skin with black hair among the group of kids says that I look like a bald Christoph Waltz, which I strongly disagree with, but I thought that was funny so I laugh.

I am not sure if I got my food or not, I just remember walking outside to either wait or leave, and it is darker now so maybe it is night or late evening now.

There are two men with light-color skin outside, someone farts several times, and one of the men who seems drunk incorrectly thinks that it was me who farted and he threatens to shoot me if I fart again.

I tell the man that it was not me and I manage to talk him down to avoid violence, he is so drunk that he can barely walk so I offer to help him walk and I start helping him walk down the sidewalk while talking to him to keep him from getting violent again, and the other man can not walk at all like his legs were hurt or missing so I start helping him as well but I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was following along with two male filmmakers with light-color skin and one of them looked like the actor Dave Franco (but it was probably not him, but I could be wrong), and they were doing some guerrilla filmmaking and we entered a building without permission it seemed so that we could film the movie inside of it.

I did not think that this was a good idea and I said so and I asked them if they were sure that this was okay, and they told me that it was okay but I still was not sure because we saw serious-looking security guards wearing suits patrolling the building.

The two men sneaked around to avoid them and I followed along still voicing my concerns and recommending that we talk to the security first, but they kept assuring me that things would be okay and that it was okay and to not worry about it.

The two men were carrying their equipment as we sneaked to the part of the building where they wanted to start filming, and we entered a room as a security guard was patrolling but two other men with light-color skin saw us and followed us into the room.

The other two men were actually actors who just sneaked in separately to join us to start filming, and so they quickly set up the equipment and they started filming a scene.

The movie that we were filming was possibly a prestige film (picture) that was possibly inspired by the movie The Prestige, it involved the two filmmakers playing the role of two magicians who I think sneaked into this building to rob it (I think that it was supposed to be a bank in their movie at least) and I played the role of one of their helpers, and the other two men were playing the role of two employees or random people or maybe security who just saw them enter a room and went after them.

In the scene the two magicians and me enter the room realizing that two men saw them (but not me), we quickly set up a glass or mirror thing that is like something that you change clothes behind, and it creates an illusion to trick the two men after us so they are using magic (illusion) to help them complete this theft.

We hide behind the glass or mirror thing, the two men enter the room not seeing us, and we were going to wait until they leave but something went wrong that I can not remember and they ended up seeing one of us so we pull out pistols and tie them up to continue the theft.

But leaving them alive would leave witnesses and they saw our faces, and so I use my silenced pistol to shoot them in the head and kill them.

This is all fake and just part of the scene that we are filming, but we get interrupted by a real security guard who is a big tall bald man with light-color skin wearing a suit who looks serious and he takes down the two filmmakers to arrest them I assume.

There is a jump in time to the future, the five of us are talking during the day outside like maybe we were leaving court or jail, and we talk about how we were arrested and how they lost their film company and they were not allowed to finish their film and one of them was possibly kicked out of college so now they were not sure what to do.

But I woke up.

Flooding | Avoiding President Barack Obama | James Franco And Dave Franco And Urination

Dream 1

I am not sure if I had this dream last night or the night before or another day, I remembered part of this dream when I was talking to my mom and she mentioned that it was flooding where my female cousin KE or CE lives, and then I suddenly remembered part of this dream.

All that I can remember of this dream is that I woke up in bed at my parent’s house during the morning and it was probably raining, I looked outside to see that the yard was flooded to my surprise, and so I yelled for my brother GC to look out of the window.

My brother GC walked over to look out the window, I told him that I did not realize that it had rained that much and that I had never seen our yard this flooded before but fortunately our house is raised off the ground so the water level was not high enough yet to reach inside our house, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place inside a windowless building that was possibly The White House or connected to The White House or near The White House, my mom was possibly in the dream at some point but I can not remember, and this dream probably took place over several days or weeks.

There were carpeted hallways with various rooms like how you expect the inside of The White House to look, each day I would walk through some of the hallways to go inside a media or cinema-like room where there was a large television or a projector projecting to a large screen on the wall, and you could watch television and films et cetera while sitting in some normal chairs spread around the room or just sit on the carpeted floor and maybe there were some seating structures built up higher in parts of the room.

Some other people would go inside this room to watch things on the screen as well, one of these people was The President Of The United States Barack Obama, and he would often visit this room after work it seemed like he would go there to relax.

I probably got to talk with President Obama at least once inside this room, I think that one day I was talking with my mom inside this room about jobs and being unemployed et cetera, and President Obama was in the room.

After this conversation I remember worrying that President Obama may have heard our conversation, and I was worried that he would ask me about jobs and my unemployment which is a very sensitive topic to me and I hate when most people randomly ask me where I work and things like that (usually strangers or family members).

If he was going to offer me a job or help me get a job, then that would not be so bad, but so far that has never been the case all these years when people bring up the topic of jobs with me; and so I started trying to avoid President Obama.

I tried to lay low in the back of the room when he would be there or avoid the room when he was inside, it was a bit ridiculous but that is how sensitive this topic is to me, but I did feel silly even in the dream.

At some point I probably was going to stop avoiding President Obama and hope for the best, maybe he would help me get a job instead of wasting my time and making me feel uncomfortable asking me questions and talking about jobs and my unemployment, and if not at least I would not be worried anymore and I could stop avoiding him; but I woke up.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it took place during the day and I was shopping with my mom in the city of D in a fictional store where the PL Grocery Store used to be, and as we were finishing quickly because I needed to drive to the city of L for a doctor’s appointment I remember seeing the actor James Franco and a man who looked like his brother Dave Franco but in this dream they were probably not brothers but I could be wrong.

In this dream Dave Franco seemed to be a friend of James Franco who would often follow him around and go partying with him et cetera like Dave looked up to James and wanted to be like him or be him, and they were about to leave the store as well.

James looked like he was on drugs and/or that something was wrong with him, I heard the two of them saying that they were leaving to meet at what I assume was a club, and they left in separate automobiles.

I was about to leave hoping to be able to stop at a fictional buffet to eat before going to my doctor’s appointment because the buffet was going to close for the day soon, and so I left in my automobile and my mom left in hers.

I remember driving behind James and Dave, something strange happened during the drive with James like he lost part of his memory and was driving strangely, and so I followed him to the club to maybe make sure that he was okay.

The club was one long mobile home-like building or several connected mobile home-like buildings that were raised off the ground and on the left side of the road somewhere past Walmart, and I followed James inside.

Later Dave arrived and was annoyed that James had went to the club without him earlier than expected, but James did not seem to notice him or remember who he was; and I was not sure if he was intentionally ignoring him or was it drugs and/or did he really lose part of his memory.

They listened to music, ate, drank, danced, played games, et cetera as James continued to act strange and like he did not remember who Dave was; and this made Dave even more annoying, and at some point I remember Dave not having a shirt on and I remember him having one or more tattoos on his body.

Dave’s annoyance and anger were slowly building and eventually he directly confronted James but James still did not seem to remember him or know what he was talking about, and so it seemed that something was wrong with James.

I am not sure what happened but the next thing that I remember is going outside to leave the club, magically he outside was different now and was no longer by the road, and now it was in a field that felt like it was in another part of the city of D.

The outside of the club was different and was on the ground now and it was connected to a repair shop that repaired boats and probably some other types of vehicles, and as I was walking to my automobile many other people arrived by automobile with brown skin with black hair like they were from a family reunion or funeral.

They had a boat and they tried to carry it inside the repair shop so I stopped to help them carry it inside, one of them accidentally damaged the door of the repair shop with maybe a crowbar, and a female worker with white and yellow skin with black hair opened another door for us and showed us where to put the boat.

After moving the boat I really needed to urinate so I went to the bathroom which looked strange and crowded, the bathroom did not have much privacy and there was maybe a ditch area with maybe some water and that part looked a bit cave-like maybe, and I remember several urinals having white plastic bags in them instead of drains so I avoided those.

At some point I found a urinal or toilet to urinate in but I was having a hard time urinating because I was not comfortable with the crowd of people, at some point I started urinating and when I was almost done I noticed a young woman with white skin with some freckles with yellow and orange hair staring at me urinate from behind the ditch and cave-like area.

Her family (parent’s, sister, and maybe a female friend) was with her and entering the bathroom from that side so I had no privacy and they could see me urinating, I thought that it was rude for her to stare and maybe her sister and friend walked over to stare as well, and I finished urinating and I went to wash my hands.

There was a television in the bathroom and a film was playing, some of my former classmates were in the bathroom like my former male classmate DH so I started talking with him as I washed my hands, and then we got interrupted by our former female classmate AH who suddenly rose (stood up) seductively from under water (maybe a tub or the ditch water) like she was swimming or taking a bath but I can not remember if she was wearing a swimsuit or if she was naked.

She seductively greeted us and told us to not be fooled because that the film playing was not a new film and that it was an old film, my former classmate DH and I were confused, and I was wondering why was she and the other women in the men’s bathroom and what was she doing in that water and how long has she been under the water because I did not see her earlier.

But I woke up shortly after this as I tried to make sense of what was happening, and in the real world I needed to urinate badly so that is probably why I had the bathroom part of the dream.

The end,

Talking To Abraham Ford

Source: Wikipedia

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that the dream took place inside a windowless school or college-like building where maybe I was a student along with other students, and I remember the halls and rooms in this building being pretty small and narrow.

This dream probably took place over several days because I remember walking around through the halls and through rooms, and then maybe walking down a hall past some offices to leave the building each day.

These offices were owned by Cat Grant (played by the actress Calista Flockhart) from the television series Supergirl, and the offices were part of her company (CatCo).

Somehow Cat Grant and I started dating, so I remember us walking and talking and spending some time together each day, and I would probably visit her office each day.

I got to meet her adult son (Adam Foster) and sometimes she would have a woman following her around, probably her personal assistant (maybe Kara Danvers), and maybe Cat gave me a job or was going to give me a job and/or I was not going to need a job anymore but I can not remember; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, maybe one or more major disasters (possibly worldwide) happened (natural and unnatural, maybe weather and/or social collapse and/or zombies), and I remember being with a random group of people trying to survive.

At some point after traveling and probably defending ourselves I remember us seeking shelter in a fictional building that seemed to be in the unfenced parts of the yard of our neighbor Mr. RD, and I remember part of this building having many beds.

At some point two large factions in our group started to unofficially form, I was not part of either, and eventually an argument started between the two growing factions in an indoor and outdoor area.

The argument started between a man who looked somewhat like the actor Dave Franco and an older man who was probably the leader of the other faction, the argument became intense and physical, and guns were drawn leading to a standoff.

Two women with whitish colored skin who seemed to be bodyguards or police for the other faction leader pointed their guns at the man who looked like Dave Franco, and they disarmed him and they held him at gunpoint on his knees with his hands behind his back; but members of his group pointed guns at the two women in his defense.

Slowly other people in the crowd started to choose a side and point their guns as well, so I stood there watching as people who were not part of a faction like me, started to choose a faction to side with; but I continued watching wondering which faction would win.

I wanted us all to work together as one group and I felt that this was stupid and that it would probably lead to half of our group killing each other, and this would decrease our chances of survival.

I stood there looking around at this intense standoff wondering if everyone would start killing each other soon over nothing, there was one man among the crowd who I felt would decide who would win, and this man was a larger and taller and more muscular and tougher and more dangerous version of the character Abraham Ford (played by the actor Michael Cudlitz) from the television series The Walking Dead.

Abraham Ford was possibly the most experienced and well-trained person in our group and he was a military veteran, like me he was not a member of either faction, and so he was standing there watching the standoff with a super intense facial expression that was so intense that the best way that I can describe it is by this image of his character from the comic books (which I have never read):

Source: Wikipedia

If only you could have seen how intense Abraham’s facial expression was, it was scary, and I felt that if he chose a faction then that faction would win the battle; and so I watched him intensely wondering which faction, if any, would he join.

I knew that I did not want to be opposing Abraham, I felt that he was an important asset to the group and I wanted to learn and train under him, and so I decided to walk over to talk to him to see what he was going to do.

We started to talk and I remember us walking and talking down the street, I am not sure if the standoff ended or what happened exactly, but it seemed that neither of us wanted to join a faction and we both felt that we all should work together; and so we were not going to take part in any in-group fighting.

Abraham was normally quiet and kept to himself, the strong silent type, and he even had his own area in the corner of the sleeping area where there were several empty beds near his.

As we walked up the street talking I remember telling him about how I felt that he was an important member of our group, and I asked him a question about emotions and memories and how he deals with them.

I noticed that he seemed to be hiding a lot of anger and rage and hate and violence and sadness and bad memories inside, he answered my question but I can not remember what he said exactly, but it probably was something you just try to live one day at-a-time or something like that.

I remember this being a very emotional moment as we both opened up and shared some personal things, I remember almost crying and my voice breaking up, and so I had to take a deep breath to stop myself from crying so I could share something personal about my life and about myself; but I can not remember what either of us shared, I know that it was about memories, and some of our mental and emotional problems or struggles.

As we approached a field I remember Abraham telling me that there were some empty beds near his sleeping area that were available if I wanted to use one because no one else was using them, it was a sign of friendship and trust, and I thanked him.

I asked Abraham if he would teach and train me in some of the things that he learned in the military and in life involving hand-to-hand combat, mêlée combat, ranged combat, survival, tactics, and more because I wanted to learn all that I could to help myself and others survive.

He smiled and laughed and joked that he guess that he still had some steam left or something like that, and he agreed that he would try to teach and train me; and I thanked him, but I woke up.

The end,
