I had several dreams last night and I remembered several parts of one or two dreams, but I did not voice record them or think about them throughout today; and so now I can only barely remember part of my last dream.

There was more to this dream before and after this part but now all that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, I remember driving around a city and I was looking for a job, and I stopped at a buffet restaurant that reminded me of maybe a small Gold Corral.

I probably asked if they were hiring, a somewhat older female manager with dark brownish colored skin with blackish colored hair told me that they were hiring, and she gave me a job on the spot and told me to start working immediately; and she told a male employee with whitish colored skin to show me what to do, and she left in a hurry to deal with some other business.

I almost did not type my dreams today because of the constant distractions/annoyances which will probably return again soon, so I will try to type my dreams now out of order and randomly as I remember parts of my dreams to save time, before I get too annoyed/distracted again to type; and so expect errors and missing details, and I am not sure if the second dream is one or two dreams, so I will assume that it is one dream.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of the first dream is that it was inspired by the audiobook for the book Childhood’s End that I started listening to on YouTube because my local library does not have the book or the audiobook, I stopped at chapter 3 before going to sleep, and my dream was about the parts that I listened to where maybe aliens arrived to Earth in spaceships, but they would never show themselves; and there was a human male main character and people wanted to know what the aliens looked like, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.


My Former Classmate JC Takes Hostages | Wanting To Go To Golden Corral

Dream 1

I forgot most of my first dream because when I woke up to try to voice record my dream I did not feel like getting out of bed because I was so comfortable and so I accidentally went back to sleep several times, I had one or more false awakening dreams where I thought that I voice recorded my dream while laying in bed, but those were just false awakening dreams; and so that caused me to forget most of this dream, and I had another dream when I went back to sleep the last time so that also caused me to forget even more of this dream unfortunately.

All that I can remember of this dream now is that it took place during the day at a fictional place that had a college, store, and airport with the college and store being connected but the airport was separated by a tall metal fence with barbed wire (the circular kind) at the top of it for security reasons; and earlier in the dream during a forgotten part of the dream I remember talking with my former male classmate JC who was at the college/store as well.

At the end of the dream I was inside the college/store with other people (students, workers, et cetera) when my former classmate JC entered the building with a gun probably, maybe he shot/killed some people but I can not remember, and he took us all hostage; and he was looking/acting strange, numb/mostly emotionless/like someone with nothing left to live for except murdering some other people before dying, and he did not really talk much.

I remember some of us trying to talk to him and talk him out of it (I was confused because earlier he seemed/acted normal enough, and so I assumed that he was just hiding whatever it was that was tormenting/bothering him earlier) but it was not working, I can not remember what happened mostly during this part of the dream, but at some point my former classmate JC somehow got distracted maybe (maybe he was killing some people or ranting or something like that); and some of us sneaked away, and we ran for our lives into the store area until we reached the back of the store in the warehouse-like area where customers are not supposed to go.

We ran outside through the exit door in the area at the back of the store where customers are not supposed to go and the tall metal fence with barbed wire at the top that protected the airport was there, and so we started climbing the fence to reach the airport to continue running for our lives and call for help; and oddly we saw no security guards even though there was a tower-like building by the fence, and I guess they did not see us yet either.

I wanted to cautiously/slowly bend the barbed wire down safely so that we could climb over it but the others were so afraid and panicking so much that a woman with whitish colored skin with yellowish colored hair who was climbing the fence on my right side started pulling the barbed wire down wildly, and some of it hit me as I tried to tell her to do it slowly/cautiously to avoid injuring someone; and fortunately I did not get injured by it surprisingly.

The woman did not listen to me and she told me that all she cared about was surviving so we all wildly climbed over the bent barbed wire to the other side of the fence, and we continued running for our lives toward the main airport building to call for help; but I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of the second/last dream is that it took place in a fictional city where most of my family and I were vacationing but I can only remember part of the end of the dream, after a day of vacationing we returned to our hotel during the night, and I remember going to be bathroom.

I wanted to go to Golden Corral before we leave the city but we were probably going to leave in the morning without making any stops, so going now was probably my best option, but I was taking a bath or shower and I was still not hungry from eating earlier in the dream; and I was not sure if Golden Corral was still open or not.

I remember asking my mom if Golden Corral was even open still, it was about 10:00 PM in the dream, and my mom was not sure so I was going to call them; but I stopped to think about this because I was still not hungry after eating earlier, but I really wanted to some of their desserts (like their carrot cake, which they did not have the last time that I went in real life, they were supposed to make some carrot cake but they never did before I left even after I waited).

As I was thinking about this I woke up.

The end,

The Mall Repeating Dream | Boogey John? | Lady #1 Or Lady #2 | Hurricane Dorm?

The Mall Repeating Dream

My first dream is from about two weeks ago, so I forgot some of the details, but I do remember the dream that started at a mall.

I believe I was an employee at the mall and my job was to deal with computer problems that any stores in the mall were having, so I would walk around the mall checking with each store to make sure their computers were running properly.

There was one place in the mall that seemed to be a small place were accountants or behind the scenes bank workers work at, and at this place there was a particular female employee that caught my attention.

She seemed to be slightly older than me and seemed to be a professional that deals with money, her office was made of mostly glass and had a modern look to it, and she seemed to be having a small computer problem.

The woman seemed to know me or at least was used to seeing me, and she started to tell me about her computer problem and we started to talk while I fixed her computer; I fixed her computer problem in about two minutes.

I found the woman to be beautiful and interesting, but I did not think I stood a chance with her since she seemed to be much more professional, successful, and better looking than myself; so I decided to keep my distance, but to my surprise she seemed to be interested in me.

I had to continue my job checking out computers in the mall and she had to continue working, so I told her that hopefully we could talk tomorrow, and we both said goodbye.

Shortly after that it was time for me to go home for the day so I walked past the mall security guard and went to the parking lot, and in the parking lot I noticed a group of men.

The group of men looked like a poor street gang from Africa, except for one of the men.

The one man in the group that stood out looked like he was a citizen of Africa that had come to the United States (USA) to try to get citizenship here also, and he was dressed a little better than the others.

The leader of the group handed the man a handgun, and the man started to walk toward the mall & passed right by me.

I had a bad feeling but did not want them to know that I seen the gun, so I decided to wait until he walked into the building and I would walk past the rest of the gang & go call the police.

Before I could call the police, I think I heard gun shots.

The dream then repeated and I was walking around checking the computers in the mall and then I stopped at the office with the woman again, and same things happened again until I left the mall again.

This time the man seemed nervous about going into the mall with the gun and nervously passed the security guard, and the security guard noticed the gun in his pocket & so the security guard pulled out his gun and told him to stop.

The gang of men then started shooting at the security guard, and so the man ran into the mall in a rush and he set/placed a bomb in the mall.

The man and the gang of men ran and an explosion happened; then the dream restarted.

I followed the same mall routine but as I talked with the woman & fixed her computer, I realized that the dream had repeated this time.

I decided that this time I would stop the man and the gang from attacking the mall.

When I walked outside of the mall this time I saw the gang give the man the gun, but he seemed nervous and as he passed me, I told him to give me the gun.

I told him that I knew what he was going to do and I told him that I wanted to help stop this attack.

He was afraid of the gang, and said that they were forcing him to do it.

He said that we came to the USA to live with his cousin and become a citizen, but did not know that his cousin was the leader of a gang.

He said that his cousin forced him to join the gang or he would have him sent back to Africa.

I told him that I would try to help him and that I would try to stop the attack, so I had a plan, and told him to give me the gun.

He gave me the gun without the gang of men seeing and I told him to tell the gang to stay in the parking lot, and to not help with the attack because you got something special planned.

So he walked over to the gang and told them, and then I told him to go into the mall & tell the security guard to lock the doors and call the police.

So he did that, while I hid behind some automobiles watching the gang of men to make sure they would not try to attack anyone.

My plan seemed to be working, the man would not use the bomb & he had no gun, the gang of men were in the parking lot & no one was being hurt, the mall was locked so they could not get in, and the police were on their way without the gang of men knowing.

I had the gun in my pocket if the police needed some help, and then I heard police sirens; but I woke up.

Boogey John?

I had this dream about two weeks ago also and I do not remember much of it, and a key part of the dream is blurry.

All I remember is that my dad, my brother D, my brother CC, and I were at my grandfather’s house.

The house was very dark, no one else was there except us & something unknown that was stalking us, and we had weapons.

My brother CC & I had Daisy Red Ryder BB guns, my dad had a baseball bat, and my brother D had a stick.

We were on the first floor of the house in the bedroom in the middle of the house, and I was leading the search for whatever was stalking us.

I decided that we should split up into two teams so my dad & I would check the hallway on the left, while my brother CC & my brother D would search the hallway on the right, and then we would all search the living room before going upstairs.

We split up and started our slow & quiet search, but as my dad & I were searching the bathroom, we heard my brother scream so we ran through the living room toward the hallway.

In the hallway my brother D was on the floor and my brother CC looked shocked, I asked my brother CC what happened and he said that something pushed my brother D on the ground but it ran when it heard us coming to help.

He said that it ran into the bedroom by the living room, but he did not see what it was exactly.

Fortunately my brother D was okay so we surrounded the bedroom and I made up an attack plan.

My plan was to have my brother CC stay in the hallway to make sure that nothing would attack us from the living room, my brother D would make sure nothing would attack us from the hallway, my dad would stand outside of the door to the bedroom, and I would go into the bedroom alone to face the thing that was stalking us.

I told my dad not to come into the room unless I called for help, and then I walked into the room with the Red Ryder BB gun.

I was pretty scared but I wanted to face the thing that was stalking us and that had tried to attack my brother, this thing could have even killed some of my family members, but I can not remember the beginning of the dream; so I do not know.

Standing across the room was what appeared to be a person and it did not look scary, but I can not remember what it looked like exactly, I think its appearance changed a few times.

At first I think it looked like a faceless man with pale white colored skin maybe and/or it looked like me and/or it changed its looks to look like me; I can not remember.

It seem to be waiting for me and it was smiling, and it seemed to know that I was scared and it was enjoying that.

The door was closed so I was in the room alone and the room was dark, my heart was beating fast, but I was angry & ready to attack.

I asked it what it was and what it wanted, but it just smiled and said that my gun would not hurt it and that I could not hurt it.

I was scared and angry, and decided to just attack it so I ran at it and started to hit it with my BB gun, but it did not hurt it.

It started to laugh a little so I backed away in fear and ran to the door, and I was about to tell my dad to come help but I realized that my fear is what made it invincible/stronger/more powerful.

I was not sure about my guess but I decided to try to test my hypothesis/guess, so I gave my BB gun to my dad and took his baseball bat; and I went back into the room.

When I went back into the room, it started to slowly walk toward me and smiling, so I closed my eyes & took a deep breath; to help make the fear go away and so help me relax.

Then I dropped the baseball bat, which made it stop, and then I told it that I was not afraid of it anymore.

It was not worried and it still could sense the fear in me, but I suddenly made my fear go away and I ran toward it.

I punched it in the stomach and it made the most shocked, confused, and painful face I have ever seen in a dream; it acted like it had never felt pain before, so my plan had worked.

I then started to punch it, to tell it that it was not invincible, to tell it that I knew that it fed off of fear, and then I started taunting it as I attacked it.

I then got the baseball bat as it laid on the floor in pain and shock, and I started to hit it with the baseball bat; but I woke up.

Lady #1 or Lady #2

This dream is about a week old and I only remember a bit of it.

I was driving in a fictional version of B, Texas with two women, and we appeared to be looking for the Golden Corral buffet restaurant.

One of the women had blonde hair and looked like a slightly younger version of Kate Winslet, and the other woman had red hair and looked like another actress but I do not know her name.

It was daytime and we did not know where we were going, we got stopped by a train so we stopped to take a break at a playground near a bridge.

I remember feeling a connection with both women and I liked both women, and I was having a hard time trying to decide which woman I should try dating.

This dream had a very nice feeling to the dream, like my emotions were amplified or something, it was like my hormones were clouding my judgment.

The dream got a little touchy-feely (if that made sense), but it managed to not get too sexual.

At one point the woman with red hair got stuck in a set of ropes on the playground equipment while me and the woman with blonde hair were talking , so me and the woman with blond(e) hair had to help her get unstuck.

Then the three of us walked back my automobile together as I talked to them and I finally decided that I liked the woman with red hair better, but I still wished that I could choose both women (which is not like me at all in real life/which is out of character for me in real life); but then I woke up.

Hurricane Dorm

I had this dream last night, but I only remember some of it and the beginning of the dream is blurry.

I remember my parent’s driving me to a college dorm in L, and I went inside the building alone while they waited outside.

Inside I remember seeing a female janitor cleaning a room that appeared to be empty, and there appeared to be no one else around.

I walked to a dorm room but this is where things are blurry, I remember seeing some of my stuff in the room, but I am not sure if I put it there or if it was already there.

The female janitor left, so I decided to go look at the room and see if it really was empty, I think I was going to move my stuff into that room instead if it was empty.

The room appeared to be empty at first, but I noticed a tennis bag on the floor that had “Justine Henin” written on it (yes, the letters actually made sense and I could read them, which is kind of rare in dreams for some people).

So I guess someone did live in that the room and maybe they were a Justine Henin fan or maybe it was Ms. Henin, and so I went back to the other room that had my stuff in it.

On my way back to the room I saw the female janitor again, and she said that a hurricane was coming and that most people had already left.

She said that she was about to leave, so I looked out of a window (which is rare) and the weather had started to get a bit bad outside.

I then walked back to the room to start packing my stuff so that I could leave, but then my brother C and my friend JC came into the room.

The dream started to get a little weird, the room then had a very tall ceiling and it had a set of metal things to climb on.

My brother C and JC started to climb up the metal things for fun, and told me to try it, so I did, but once we got to the top; we did not know how to get back down.

I was up high and I was scared, so I tried to slowly climb back down, while JC was daring me to jump down.

I decided to jump down to another metal thing, instead of jumping all the way down, but as I was jumping I woke up.

The end,
