Decisions & Aliens & Glasses & A Hospital?

I got in bed too late and I had to wake up early for a doctor’s appointment, so I probably only got about three hours of sleep, and my dream and sleep got interrupted by my alarm clock going off which caused me to forget all of my dreams except for only a few fragments of my last dream.

I was awakened abruptly from this dream causing me to forget most of it, but the dream probably had humans and several different alien species / races in it from maybe the Mass Effect video game franchise I assume because I watched some Mass Effect 3 let’s play videos from a YouTube playlist called Mr. Odd Plays Mass Effect 3 [BLIND] by ChristopherOdd before going to sleep.


Thinking About Possible Future Decisions

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that during the dream I kept thinking deeply about my various possible future decisions and how they might impact other people.

In this dream I was possibly a leader, if so, I am not sure what I was a leader of.


Trying To Decide How To Divide Out Hamburgers

Dream 1

I did not record the dreams that I remembered throughout the night, and so now I can barely remember part of two dreams.

This dream possibly involved something from the anime television show Overlord (Season 2), but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The end of this dream took place inside my parents house, my dad probably brought some food home for lunch, and I had to make the plates / divide the food out between all of us.

First I needed to find out how many plates did I need to make / how many people would be eating, along with the food were two hamburgers, and so second I needed to find out how many people wanted some of the hamburgers so I could decide how to best divide it out.

If only four people wanted the hamburgers then I was going to cut each hamburger into four parts and give two parts to each person, if only two people wanted the hamburgers then I was going to just give them to two people, and but I was not sure what I would do if more than four people wanted the hamburgers.

I was doing these things during the dream, I probably had the plates mostly made but I still needed to handle dividing out the hamburgers, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Making A Decision?

I got in bed too late and I woke up to use the bathroom one or two times without recording my dreams, and so I can only remember barely part of one dream that was probably inspired by my female coworker MA asking us what our favorite song was.

I do not really have a favorite song at this time so I was trying to think about this over the weekend and before I went to sleep, and so maybe I dreamed about this and / or I had a dream where a woman possibly wanted us to make a decision and pick something and then maybe she or we would pick one of the things chosen by the others or something.


The Road Less Traveled

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called The Road Less Traveled, and this is what it said:

Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision.

Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.

And this is my response:

Back when I was in high school during the wars I was going to possibly join the military part-time, do my recruit training during the summer break, and then finish my last year of high school before going full-time with the military.

I had a physical scheduled to see if I would qualify physically and mentally to join the military, I was going to go to it after school, but my mom cancelled it without telling me; and she stopped me from joining the military, and so I was angry when I returned home from school that day to find out that she had done this.

I eventually stopped being angry with my mom about it and I apologized, I understood why she did it, and I think that she made the correct decision at the time; but my life would definitely be a lot different now if things had went differently whether bad or neutral or good.

Here are three main possible scenarios that could have happened if my mom had not stopped me from joining the military during the wars while I was still in high school:

Negatives Scenarios

I get seriously injured and/or killed in the wars, I end up doing and supporting things that I do not believe in or agree with during and after the wars, I end up hurting people and the world instead of helping it, I end up not liking or fitting in with military life or wars, I end up with mental and emotional and physical problems because of the wars, and more.

Neutral Scenarios

My overall military experiences and experiences during the wars are a combination of negative and positive and neutral experiences that leave me more neutral, a more average military experience and more average experiences during the wars, and so there is more of a balance between the good and bad experiences leaving me feeling neither too negative nor too positive.

Positive Scenarios

I overall enjoy my military experiences and experiences during the wars, I do things that I agree with and believe in and like and that help people, and those experiences and my training leave me better prepared for life overall and better set for life overall to support myself and my family and help others.

The end,
