A Hooded Man Named John

All that I can remember of the end of this dream is that I was standing outside in what looked like a fictional version of the field in front of The PH Trade Days area, and I was holding an acoustic guitar.

I was about to walk back to a fictional apartment across the street where I assume I lived when I noticed what looked like a hooded figure standing behind an electrical pole near the road to my left, and I looked in that direction and there was a man wearing a hoodie with the hood on who had dark-color skin but I could not see his face.

A Stressful Work Dream

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it probably took place at The BP Library, I was there working, and there was a very large print job that needed to be done.

Maybe Mrs. CR was trying to figure out how and what to print, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

I had problems sleeping when it was almost time to wake up for work, and this dream possibly disrupted my sleep.

This dream took place at The BP Library, and I was there working at my IT Assistant job.

A deaf patron named Mr. G was by the computer lab closest to the DVD section, there was a somewhat older man with light-color skin with him, and Mr. G handed me a sheet of paper with a note saying that he needed help with something.

Mr. G had a USB flash drive, a laptop with Microsoft Windows as the operating system (maybe Windows 7), and his note seemed to be asking for help maybe playing a video that was on the flash drive but it was not clear so I had to try to ask him by writing notes on paper for him to read.

His laptop was probably infected with malware, most of his software was out-of-date, and VLC Media Player (VLC) was crashing the last time that I tried to use it so I was not sure how we were going to get that video to play because the video was in a format that the default Windows Media Player would probably not play without having to install the codecs for it.

I was having problems writing for some reason, and this situation was making me feel stressed as I struggled to write correctly while trying to decide how to handle this situation.

I remember trying to decide which anti-malware program would be best for him to use to scan the computer with, if I should even risk suggesting that because we are not even supposed to deal with things like this if it is the patron’s own property and not ours, trying to figure out what other options we had, et cetera while struggling to communicate with Mr. G and the other man through writing notes and using body language / hand signs et cetera because Mr. G is deaf and I do not know sign language.

I wanted to help him but doing so would be outside our usual rules and his laptop was probably so messed up that it would take a long time and something could go wrong and it was possibly so damaged by malware that it would possibly need to have Microsoft Windows reinstalled, also like the last time he was probably not happy and I was having flashbacks of past stressful computer jobs, and so this was stressing me.

I possibly went in and out of being semi-sleep during this, my body felt a bit hot and stressed, and this went on until it was time to wake up for work.

So I woke up feeling stressed, a bit hot, a bit tired, et cetera like I had really been at work during a stressful day; and so that was not fun, and then I had to go to work after just dreaming of working in more than one dream. 😀

The end,
