Daily Prompt

The Daily Post has a Daily Prompt today called Ebb And Flow, and this is what it says:

Our blogs morph over time, as interests shift and life happens. Write a post for your blog — but three years in the future.

And this is my response:

Because my blog is mostly a dream blog, a post three years in the future would be about the same as today’s post, a post about the dreams that I remembered during the night; and so my dreams from last night in this post can be used to answer this prompt:

Dream 1

I had a variety of interesting dreams from last night that I remembered part of but I was so comfortable in bed that I did not get up to voice record them so I stayed in bed daydreaming, thinking, and sometimes dreaming again until I forgot some of the dreams and I forgot most of the dreams that I did remember part of; but fortunately I still barely remember part of three dreams.

My brother CC is visiting and this is my first time seeing him in over a year so I have spent most of the day with him and my parent’s so I have forgotten even more of my dreams because I have not been thinking about them today so I am typing this very late, but I do still remember a few parts of my dreams.

All that I can remember of this dream is that at the end of the dream I was on some maybe wooden platforms that were all separated from each other near a wooden dock-like area with couches on each platform in the middle of the ocean with some of my family and some other people, at some point sharks (probably Great White Sharks) and/or something like that attacked me, and they were trying to grab me off the platforms.

I tried to stand where they could not reach me but the sharks/whatever kept jumping out of the water to get closer to me, they started to grab me and I think that I remember some police officers helping grab me to stop them from pulling me in the water, and we struggled to not be pulled in; and maybe a few police officers got grabbed into the water by the sharks, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that at the end of the dream I was inside a fictional college dorm that I probably used to stay at but I probably no longer stayed there, I remember going into one of the dorm suites which was nice and it had an interesting design where the shared areas were across the entire middle part of the suite, and the private rooms were on the left and right sides of the suite.

Everyone was gone, I can not remember why I was there exactly but I was possibly there to see my male former classmates JC and DH and/or hoping the find an empty dorm room to stay in for free until I could afford to pay for one as I possibly try to return to college to finally finish, but I can not remember.

I remember going into one of the dorm rooms that was either not being used or the owner was gone, I remember spending some time in the room and suite, and then I remember being in a bathroom; and then when I was leaving the bathroom a woman with whitish colored skin who was a college student saw me, at first she probably assumed that I was visiting someone, but she probably called some of her suitemates to see if they knew me.

None of them did and so she probably confronted me, but maybe my former classmates JC and DH arrived and let her know that they knew me before she could call security but I could be wrong; there was more to this dream, this dream was longer and I did a lot more thinking, and there was more feelings to this dream as I probably hoped to not get caught and I hoped to be able to finish college but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day and I remember some parts of the dream taking place in the field by my parent’s yard, at the bus stop area of The E House, on the porch of the reddish colored house across the street from The E House and inside the house, and a few other areas when walking through these areas.

This dream is too unclear but I know that it involved at least two women during different parts of the dream, both of them were unique and strange and maybe even non-human or non-human-like, and I remember one of the women living at the reddish colored house.

We somehow met and had a good conversation on her porch and then inside her house and things were going good until something that I can not remember happened, she became angry and a bit crazy, and she made me leave; and later in the dream I met another woman who was similar to her at the bus stop area, and we had a good conversation at first.

Once again something that I can not remember went wrong and she became angry and a bit crazy and she left, and then I left; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Following A Werewolf

Once again my dream recall got effected/affected by me needing to use the bathroom but holding it in until later, and so I forgot all of my dreams except for barely part of the end of my last dream.

This dream is very unclear so I am not exactly sure who are what I was at times, I just know that the dream took place during the night in a fictional neighborhood in a dock-like area outside of a city that you could see in the distance because of the many lights that were on inside and outside of large buildings in the city, but I can not remember if there was any water around this area or not.

There were some lower-class houses with porches and almost shotgun-style house designs among some nicer middle-class two-story houses, I remember seeing a humanoid creäture that was possibly a werewolf and maybe there was another creäture that I saw but I can not remember, and I possibly sneaked around following the werewolf and/or I turned into a werewolf to find the other creäture or to follow the werewolf and/or I became the werewolf who I was following and/or something else strange like that.

The werewolf was a man/male who walked on two feet and he had two arms and he was still wearing clothing that was probably partly torn during his transformation, he sneaked around and through houses like he was looking for something/someone (probably the other creäture), and he was trying to avoid being seen and it seemed that he did not want to hurt anyone.

Things were mostly quiet except that some of the houses had children playing, I can only remember seeing one adult who was the mother of some of the children, and the werewolf sneaked around successfully until a boy possibly saw him at some point; and the boy told the other children and his mother that he thought that he saw something, and so they started looking around.

The werewolf barely managed to escape outside and mostly avoid being seen by climbing and jumping on houses, it is possibly that one or more of the children/the mother possibly saw his shadow or saw him moving in the distance, but they probably could not tell what he was; and he probably hid on/behind a roof of a two-story house until they stopped looking out their window.

I woke up as he was trying to figure out what to do next.

Looking For Somewhere Safe

Dream 1

I do not feel like typing my dreams today and so I will not waste much time, all that I can remember of the first dream is that it took place during the day inside my parent’s house, and I was in the living room with my brother GC possibly trying to play some video games.

At some point in the dream I thought that I saw a shadow of a person move outside the window near the back door, so I got up to investigate, but then the older daughter who used to live in The G House entered the living room from the laundry room to our surprise/confusion; and then her younger sister entered the living room from the glass doors to the dining room.

I can not remember if they said anything or not, I just remember them looking bored like they were waiting on something/someone, and I remember my mom saying something to them about maybe not disturbing us or something like that; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream was a pretty deep dream I think, it is unclear but I think that it took place during the day in a dream world where one or more major disasters happened like zombie-like attacks, and the dream world had a somewhat strange-looking/feeling environment (maybe somewhat surreal) and part of the dream world seemed to be based on some of my dreams that are somewhat inspired by the Fallout video games.

It seemed that many people were dead and/or gone and/or hiding in this dream world, you had to be cautious of threats from other people and maybe zombie-like entities, and I remember wandering around the dream world in mostly open areas away from cities looking for somewhere safe and/or for a group of people to join with and/or to help people; and I came across various people I knew like some of my former classmates like my former male classmate JR and maybe my former female classmate CW as I wandered, but none of them joined me.

I wandered alone until I reached the edge of a city with a lake/river/whatever and docks separating the open wilderness area where I was from the city, there were buildings/businesses along the docks, and so I was going to search this outer area of the city for somewhere safe because normally it was more dangerous further inside cities.

I swam or somehow crossed the lake/water to the docks, there was a small clothing boutique in this area that I was going to explore first, but to my surprise several scared women with light-medium brownish colored skin walked outside of it when they saw me; and one of them was a bit old so I assumed that she was the grandmother, and that the other women were her granddaughters.

I told them that I was not going to hurt them but then in the distance I saw two men with whitish colored skin looking around, I was not sure if they were dangerous or not, and so I told the women about them and I suggested that we hide and get ready to defend ourselves and the building if necessary; and so I ran into the boutique with them, we started trying to close and lock the doors after I suggested it, but one of the doors would not close or lock so we had to run hide with it still open because the two men were approaching.

I ran into a room and I ducked down to hide, I picked up a metal fork/pick-like utensil from the floor that is used to flip barbecue because I needed a weapon (I was somewhat afraid that they had guns, that they were dangerous, and that I would have to fight them with only a fork/whatever 😀 ), and then I heard the two men enter the boutique; and after waiting for them to get a bit closer and after building up enough courage/energy I looked up again to prepare to approach them with my weapon but I was surprised to see that the room was now full of boys, young men, and men (coaches) for maybe a baseball team all wearing light blueish and whitish colored baseball uniforms.

The two men seemed to have been scouting for a safe building for the team to hide in, I approached the group to talk to them and my former male classmate CB was among them, and then the women came out of hiding when I told them that it was safe; and then I sat down on a wooden bench to talk to my former classmate CB, he seemed to know a lot about me and he provided some comic relief, and I remember us talking about various things.

I remember telling him that I met our former classmates JR and CW during my journey, he told me that he did not like our former classmate JR and that our former classmate JR did not really like us, and somehow he knew that I used to like our former female classmate CW back when we were in high school and he mentioned this asking me about what happened when we met again and he made some jokes about this.

Then our conversation became deep and emotional when he asked me a certain question that I can not remember, I paused and I took some deep breaths as emotions and memories overcame me of the zombie-like creatures attacking my family and others and I, and the many horrors of the disaster and how they effected/affected me; and I started trying to stop myself from crying, and I remember my voice breaking up and I had to keep pausing because I could not talk.

I probably cried a bit as I talked about the hatred and many emotions that I had felt after the zombie-like attacks, I told my former classmate CB that I used to have a lot of hatred for those creatures, and that hate had started to consume me as I probably wandered around trying to get revenge by killing all of the zombies/whatever that I could find (I assume that they killed my family); and that my hatred grew so much that one day I realized that I needed to let it go, and that this hatred was destroying me.

Somehow I finally let the hatred go and I instantly felt better and I started focusing on trying to live instead of focusing on revenge and death and despair et cetera, my former classmate CB listened to my story, and he said a few things and then he lifted the mood again; and our conversation continued in a more positive direction, but I woke up.

Fighting Aliens Disguised As Humans?

*There is a problem that randomly happens where the text in my posts gets duplicated and/or jumbled together and/or YouTube links do not embed in the Classic Editor after I click Publish, so we are trying to figure this out at the Forums (, and so this post is a fixed version and the other post is the messed up version so that they can see this bug live/in real-time; and so I will probably continue doing this until this is fixed, and then I will probably delete the messed up posts or leave at least one of them for future reference if this problem happens again in the future.*

I forgot all of my dreams from last night except for barely part of my last dream because I did not voice record my dreams during the night when waking up to use the bathroom, and I think that this dream was inspired by a news article (I can not find that news article now) that I read last night about the recent NAACP Building/Barber Shop Bombing where they showed a sketch/drawing of the possible bomber/suspect; and some people commented in the comment section of that news article that the possible bomber/suspect looked a bit like an alien:

All that I can remember of the dream is that it involved a group of people and I fighting what/who we considered to be/called aliens, they looked human but they were probably aliens according to us in the dream, and I assumed that they probably were disguised as humans using shapeshifting; but that was just my guess/assumption in the dream because even in the dream we were not sure how or why they looked human.

The parts of the dream that I can somewhat remember took place mostly on a gray day or several gray days and on maybe one or more nights, the group of people (a variety of men and women and children of various ages from babies to the elderly/old) and I lived in a large metal ship docked at some docks in a fictional place that was away from/somewhat outside or near a city I guess/think, and our fights/shootouts with the aliens probably mostly took place around this area like maybe the aliens would attack us sometimes.

Our fights/shootouts involved normal guns, weapons, and maybe some hand-to-hand combat around and at the docks, outside our ship, and maybe sometimes inside our ship; and there were some intense fights/shootouts that we had and they were pretty realistic with us having to take cover, ricochets, bullets damage to objects, bullets going through objects, the sounds of bullets hitting things, and more.

My group and I were just trying to survive and defend against the aliens and hopefully stop them one day, after one intense battle at least one person from our group was kidnapped by the aliens and this person was a boy with whitish colored skin with short maybe brownish colored hair, and I think that the aliens would probably often try to kidnap people but we did not know why they would do this.

We managed to capture at least one of the aliens during the battle and so later we set up an exchange/deal with the aliens where they would return the boy from our group in exchange for the alien from their group that we captured during the battle, they agreed, and so we made the exchange.

As the boy’s parent’s and the others were hugging him and celebrating I noticed that when the boy blinked his eyes that one of his eyes briefly looked different from the other in size and color and it looked strange/alien but it switched back to normal quickly, and so I assumed that he was an alien in disguise pretending to be the boy; and that the aliens still had the boy so they had tricked us, and so I assumed that this alien disguised as the boy was here to spy on us and do other negative things against us.

I decided to not tell anyone this possibly (maybe I told only a few trusted people, but I can not remember) and instead I decided to watch him closely and to try to make sure that he did not learn too much about us or do anything negative against us, eventually we got attacked by the aliens again, but we managed to force them to retreat again as usual.

Some of the people in my group were injured/wounded in that battle so I think that we called an ambulance to come pick them up and some of us were going to ride in the ambulance with them in case the aliens tried to attack the ambulance while some of the others would stay to protect the ship and the others, and the ambulance that arrived looked like a large dark-reddish colored church/transportation van instead of a normal ambulance.

I was going with them and I brought my gun (probably an assault rifle) and I brought the alien who was disguised as the boy with me so that I could watch him, before the ambulance could leave it started getting shot, and a van/automobile of aliens drove in front of us and they got out of the automobile shooting at us like they thought that we were on our way to attack them not realizing that this was an ambulance on its way to the hospital.

The aliens wore ski masks/balaclavas and jackets/clothing (that looked a lot like what the man in the image for this post/at the top of this post is wearing) and they all probably were men with whitish colored skin based on the bit that we could see because they were wearing masks and clothing covering most of their bodies, during our shootout I wondered if all of them were aliens or not, and I started to wonder what the aliens really looked like and if they were possibly using the bodies of the people who(m) they kidnapped as a disguise (maybe they were somehow inside their bodies like a parasite or maybe they possessed them or maybe they wore their bodies as a skin or maybe they shapeshifted into them or maybe they were controlling them somehow but I/we did not know).

I came up with an idea that would stop the shootout so that we could get our people to the hospital and that would get the real boy from our group back and hopefully any other humans that the aliens kidnapped, I yelled for everyone to stop shooting and that I wanted to make a deal, and the aliens did not stop shooting at first so I pointed my gun at the alien disguised as the boy explaining to the aliens that I knew that this was not the real boy and that it was an alien in disguise.

The aliens stopped shooting at us and I explained my deal to them, they would bring the real boy and any other humans who(m)/that they kidnapped back to us unharmed and we would give them the alien disguised as the boy unharmed and while we wait for them to do this they would let our people in the ambulance go to and from the hospital safely, and today’s battle would end peacefully.

The aliens agreed to my deal so they left to get the boy and any other people they kidnapped (if there were any left or if they did not lie to us again), the ambulance left to the hospital with some of our people while the rest of us stayed to defend the ship, and I took the alien disguised at the boy inside the ship to question/interrogate him for information until the other aliens returned with the real boy/others.

I assumed that the aliens would possibly try to trick us again by returning the real boy but also returning fake people who(m) we did not know who were really aliens in disguise or people who worked for them or people who were controlled by them or some other kind of trick like that, and so I wanted to learn as much as I could about them/the aliens from the alien who was disguised as the boy; but I assumed that he would just lie to me and not answer most of my questions.

During my interrogation of him it seemed that I was correct about him probably lying and avoiding many of my questions, I asked him to show me what they/the aliens really looked like, and eventually he shapeshifted into maybe a stereotypical Grey-like alien like he was just doing this for fun as a joke/to annoy me/to trick me; and I did not think that this was their real form and I felt that he was playing games with me, and I told him this and I kept asking him to tell me what he/they/the aliens really looked like and for him to stop lying to me and I started to get a bit angry/annoyed because I only had a short amount of time to interrogate him and I would possibly not get a chance like this again.

I asked him who were they, what were they, what did they want, why are they here, why are they kidnapping people and doing other things to people, why do they keep attacking us, where did they come from, how did they get here, how long have they been here, and many other questions that he mostly refused to answer and the few questions that he did answer were probably lies.

Because he was refusing to answer most of my questions and probably lying to me I started trying to guess what the truth/answer for each of those questions might be for myself, to guess how they would try to trick us next, to figure out how we could test if a person is really human or an alien in disguise or a human controlled by an alien or a human working with the aliens, and more; but I woke up.
