The Boot Camp Experience

Dream 1

Last night I barely remember part of two dreams, with the first dream taking place at an unknown location, and I was participating in a boot camp that was for people who were thinking about going to the military or people who wanted to get ready for the military or people who just wanted to see what the boot camp experience was like; and there were kids-adults there, so I guess there was no age limit.

A former drill instructor or someone was in charge, he was a strong-looking man with medium-dark brownish colored skin & black colored hair, and he wore a combat uniform with the t-shirt, pants, and boots.

We were inside of a strange building that had indoor & outdoor areas with several floors, we were on an upper floor that led to a strange almost cave-like area on the floor above our sleeping area, it was a strange building; our sleeping area was on a stairway down to the real floor where most of the beds were, some of the beds were on the stairs, it was odd, but things were set up to not make us comfortable & to simulate harsher conditions.

We did not get much sleep, the drill instructor was mean & loud, we did not eat much, we did a lot of drills & exercises, but we were actually learning things & getting tougher; and we were learning how to work as a team and how to better work alone.

The dream took place over several days & weeks probably, our boot camp experience seemed to do a good job of simulating a variety of environments & situations, and we learned a lot more than I expected; but I woke up at some point.

Dream 2

The next dream took place in a fictional version of D near the old C plant, in an area that is sometimes in my dreams, and I remember talking with one or more people; and at some point I think that my cousin EE came while a former classmate of mine & I were talking.

I had not seen her in many years, so the three of us talked, but suddenly we started to see some large frogs jumping around near us; and one of the frogs jumped toward me & so I ducked, but it hit EE in the face.

She did not see the frog and so she thought that I had hit her in the face, so she got mad, and I kept trying to explain that a frog had hit her in the face but she did not believe me; and I was offended that she thought that I had slapped her, and so I kept trying to prove my innocence as we argued about the situation as we walked to my parent’s house.

My former classmate saw what had happened and he tried to explain that I was telling the truth, but EE still did not believe us; I offered to take a polygraph/lie detector test, and I offered to pay for her to have the DNA on her face tested to prove that a frog did hit her in the face.

It really bothered me that my cousin thought that I had slapped her and that I was lying about it, even though it was not true, she started to consider my offer(s); but I woke up.
