Fake It Until You Make It | Mammy-Like?

Source: IMDb

Dream 1

The end of this dream took place during the day, and I was with my parents and maybe my brothers GC and CC were there earlier in the forgotten parts of the dream.

I remember sitting in a car with my mom in the street across from our yard between the yard of The B House and Mr. RD’s House, I was in the front passenger’s seat and my mom was in the driver’s seat, and we were talking; and maybe my dad was in our yard.

Several automobiles drove past us and they went to The B House, and some people were there talking with our neighbors Gas Money and Gas Money Girlfriend in their yard near their automobiles.

I remember standing outside the car talking with my mom at some point, and a man with light-color skin who was possibly a military veteran and firefighter walked over from the yard of The B House to talk to me.

This man was talking with Gas Money and Gas Money Girlfriend before he walked over to talk to me, he asked me a question that I can not remember, and we started talking.

During our conversation I found a black rock structure on the ground, I decided to take it inside our house to wash it off so that I could keep it, and so I said goodbye to the man before walking inside to do this.

While I was cleaning the rock structure I thought / daydreamed a story of a fictional man talking to the man who I had just talked to, I imagined this fictional man lying to the man about being a military veteran, and then becoming friends with the man.

During their friendship he continued the lie by learning and training with the man and his military friends (active duty and former military), which helped him to continue his lie, but eventually this learning and training and hanging out with the military veterans led to him secretly joining the military.

He lied to the military veterans to give an excuse of why he would be gone for months, during that time he finished basic training et cetera and was a real soldier at this point, and now he was no longer lying about being a soldier.

Eventually he even joined special forces, he never did tell them the truth and how he had lied to them at first, and he just hoped that they would never find out; but I woke up.

Dream 2

The end of this dream involved me returning to an apartment building that I once stayed at in the past during some false memories of a time in the past where I went to college briefly again.

A cousin and / or a former classmate of mine and some other people stayed at this apartment back in my false memories when they were in college, and I briefly moved in with them when I went to return to college.

They finished college but I was not there anymore at some point, either I left after they had already graduated or I left before they graduated, either way I probably did not finish college but they did and I was alone.

After this I had more false memories, The Young Turks (TYT) used our former apartment room as a studio / whatever for their show, but at some point they moved out as well.

Now in the present time the apartment was mostly abandoned it seemed, and it was probably at risk of being torn down.

I did go inside our former apartment room, and no one seemed to be living there.

I then walked through a multi-story building, maybe another building that was probably not part of this building, and I saw two men playing a zombie video game on an arcade machine.

We were possibly along a hallway with a rail behind us where you could possibly see the outside or something, I can not remember, I just know that it was an area that was possibly on an upper floor in a quiet area near the outside maybe.

I had played this video game earlier in a forgotten part of this dream, but I had played it on a computer or a modern video game console instead of an arcade machine so I was surprised to see that there was an arcade version of this video game.

I stopped to watch the two men play the video game, they almost finished the first level of the video game but they lost, and one of the men decided to leave so I started talking to the other man.

I offered to play the video game with him, I told him that I had played this video game before but not on an arcade machine, but I woke up.

Dream 3

This dream involved me walking through a building, maybe a multi-story multi-purpose building, and I reached an area where a wedding reception (party) was taking place.

I stopped in this area and I remember seeing an attractive well-dressed woman who was a cold intelligent independent stern motherly bossy type person who looked like and acted like a combination of the character Vera Stone from the television show The Order combined with the actress Katharine Isabelle who played that character combined with maybe the actress Lucy Lawless.

This woman was talking with another woman, this other woman managed to get the first woman to open up about how she felt, and the first woman was single and was a bit lonely and wondered why no one seemed interested in trying to date her.

During their conversation I learned that the first woman had a pretty good job and she was good at her job, but like her personality she was a bit cold and stern and motherly and bossy toward her coworkers and the children et cetera she helped take care of / teach / whatever (I can not remember what her job was).

The second woman explained why no one has probably tried dating the woman, she mentioned part of her personality as one possible problem, and she said that she was a mammy type (was mammy-like) or something like that which was another problem; and then she tried to give some words of encouragement to the first woman to help her with her sadness / loneliness / et cetera, and to help give her hope and maybe some advice to help her with this problem.

I was curious about the woman and possibly interested in her and I wanted to talk to her, but I did not want to interrupt their conversation so I decided to get some food and drink and hangout a bit waiting for a chance to maybe talk to her.

I had a very heavy backpack on at this point, while I was going to get some food, a man with light-color skin walked up behind me and he did something to my backpack that caused the heavy items to fall back and out which almost broke or damaged my back because they were so heavy and they were falling backward suddenly.

The only thing that saved me was that I am stronger than average so I was able to survive this.

The man did this so that he could get some food first, while I was recovering and trying to pick up the heavy stuff, the man was getting some food.

I was annoyed and a bit angry about this, I said a few things to him as I did this, but I did not waste my time beyond that; but then I woke up.

Dream 4

This dream involved a man using a portal as a shortcut inside a house, I assume that there was a portal inside the house that you could use to come to and from the house from another location, but I am not sure how many other portals were in other locations.

I had false memories of the past where I had used this same portal inside the house during a time where I probably lived there, and in this dream I had just used it again for the first time in a while so that I could see this house that I used to live at; and the man happened to be using the portal as well at this time.

I briefly talked to the man about this, but that is all that I can remember of this dream before I woke up.

The end,

Getting Murdered By A Firefighter

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I forgot all of my dreams from last night except for part of one dream, during one part of the dream I remember being outside during the day in a slightly fictional version of my parents’ yard, and my male cousin DE was with me.

My parents’ had a fictional customized carport that combined two carports into one carport that had walls and so it was closed off like a house, this carport was connected to a one-story house area, this house area was connected to a larger version of the two storage buildings in my parents’ yard that were now connected, and the combined storage building was connected a small business owned by the people who customized these buildings for my parents’ I think.

I took my cousin DE on a tour of these connected buildings starting with the carport which was mostly a whitish and grayish color, it was nice and clean and private inside, and the roof was very tall with light coming through the materials used throughout the carport because they were designed to let some light through.

We then walked into the house area which was a nice spacious one-story area with nice somewhat modern furniture with a few sunken areas (maybe the living room and family room), it looked better than my parents’ house, and it was possibly slightly larger than my parents’ house or about the same size with a better use of space.

I wanted to spend more time in the house area but I decided to continue the tour and we walked through the storage building where my parents’ hoard/store things, and then we walked into small business that was owned by a somewhat older married couple (husband and wife) who both had whitish colored skin with graying hair and/or grayish/whitish colored hair.

The husband and wife were standing behind a counter and in front of them was a sunken lobby, it is possible that they rented out some rooms in their small business like a hotel because I saw some people hanging out in the lobby like it was a hotel lobby, and they also did customizing of buildings.

I greeted the husband and wife and I probably introduced them to my cousin DE, after this I do not remember seeing my cousin DE again and so maybe he left, and then I remember walking across the lobby to leave when I was approached by maybe a middle-aged woman with whitish colored skin with reddish colored hair who looked somewhat like PS BO.

I think that the woman needed help with something and I agreed to help her, we walked outside like I was probably helping her find/reach a certain location/area like maybe she was lost and/or something like that, and oddly there was a parking lot outside instead of my parents’ yard in this area.

Next to the parking lot was a sidewalk next to a street and there were businesses/buildings along the sidewalk, we started to walk toward the sidewalk when suddenly the woman stopped and she started having what seemed to be a medical emergency, and so I called emergency services.

At least three male firefighters were the first to reach us with the firefighter in charge having whitish colored skin with maybe a slight tan and he spoke with a masculine / macho maybe New York accent / New Jersey-like accent when he spoke English, and the other two firefighters had dark brownish colored skin with one of them being an older man.

The woman could not talk at this point and she probably vomited and then she collapsed to the ground, the main firefighter angrily told me to stop standing around and do something, and he started insulting me which surprised/annoyed/angered me.

I picked up the woman to carry her to the sidewalk and the younger firefighter with dark brownish colored skin bumped into me, I apologized even though it was him who bumped into me, but he got angry and he started insulting me as well and smiling/laughing at me and threatening me and the older firefighter did the same.

I laid the unconscious woman down on the ground and she started to spasm and/or have light seizures and/or maybe something like that, I was annoyed/angered by the firefighters behavior but I was focused on helping the woman, and people were starting to crowd around to see what was going on.

The ambulance probably arrived and they probably started helping the woman, I began arguing with the firefighters (they started arguing with me), and the younger firefighter started acting like he wanted to fight me and he threatened me and he pushed me and I probably pushed him back; and I was so annoyed that I was ready to fight back, but he walked away to my surprise.

I turned my back to see how the woman was doing and while my back was turned the young firefighter had walked off and got his pistol, he then walked up behind me and put his pistol to the back of my head while everyone else was focused on the woman, and he forced me at gunpoint to walk with him further away from the crowd.

I probably told him that using a gun was on someone from behind like this was cowardly and if he wanted to fight me that he should fight me in hand-to-hand combat, but then he shot me in the back of my head instead of fighting me; and I died.

I remember seeing a newspaper report showing that the firefighter got arrested for murdering me, and then I woke up.

11-27-2013 | Dream Fragments | A Handle Breaks And Ingidisa’s Message | People At An Apartment Building Coming Together To Defend Themselves | My Former Classmates AP And SC Are Not Doing So Good

In Dreams (film)

I slept pretty well last night only waking up a few times to use the bathroom and I voice recorded one of my dreams that I barely remembered part of, I over-slept and now I remember part of two fragments, and part of a second dream.

Dream 1

I barely remember part of two fragments that were either part of one or more dreams or semi-dreams or thoughts or whatever, I am not sure which and so I will combine them as part of one dream, and the first fragment involved me holding my glass cup/mug/stein that I use to drink water in that recently fell and the handle cracked but has not broken yet; and in this dream the handle finally broke and it fell out of my hand on the floor, and so I remember saying to myself that it is time for me to buy another one and I was a bit disappointed that it broke.

The second fragment involved me being on a computer checking my WordPress.com blog and I got a message/comment from Ingidisa about my current two header images on my blog (one of a young woman sleeping under water with her using her books as pillows and one of a young woman sleeping in space on a glowing planetary body or something like that), and part of her message/comment probably went something like this: “Your two sleeping female header images are not very Apropos.” or something like that, there was more to her message but this is the only part that I somewhat remember but I probably got it a bit wrong, but that part of the message was close to that I think.

Ingidisa used a word that I was not very familiar with but I had a few guesses about its meaning, she used an exact word that is rarely used but I can not remember the exact word but Apropos is my best guess but I could be and I probably am wrong, and so I started looking up the word online to find its meaning in an online dictionary; but I can not remember if I found the meaning or not.

Wildfires At PW Elementary

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I only remember part of the end of one dream from last night, I remember riding in a dark-colored or black colored SUV (sport utility vehicle) with a woman with whitish colored skin with short blond colored hair, and she was driving; and we were driving during the day toward the four-way stop near the PW Elementary bus stop.

We saw a large pine tree / tree on fire near the PW Elementary 4th grade playground, we stopped to call the firefighters/emergency services & to try to figure out how to warn the school about the fire, and I stepped out of the automobile to feel the air to see if the fire might be a wildfire started by dryness & heat; and the air was very dry & hot, and I could feel it.

I knew that the situation was dangerous & that more fires could start, so I was going to warn the woman that we needed to get to a safer distance, but a fire stared behind me in the bushes; and so I tried to get inside the automobile but I saw flames/fire on my back from a reflection on the windows of the automobile.

I moved away from the automobile, I stopped, I dropped to the ground, and I started rolling trying to put out the fire on my back as the woman continued to try to call for the firefighters/emergency services; and she continued to try to warn the school, and she was trying to let me know if the fire on my back was out or not.

Some of the fire on my back went out but when I got up some of it was still burning or started back burning, fortunately I could not feel it, and I had two layers of clothing protecting me; and while this was going on more fires were starting in a few other places around the area near the school.

At some point I jumped into the automobile hoping the fire was out because it was too dangerous to stay in this area, but I woke up as we drove off to a safer distance.

The end,
