Complaining About Protesting | John Robertson? | A College Dorm

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved older out-of-shape & overweight & obese people complaining & talking about wanting to protest as they sat and / or stood near various objects inside maybe a house; but they never did leave to go protest, and that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

In this dream I was at work at The BP Library in the computer lab when a patron named Mr. J, who was on a computer, told me that he got my emails.


A Hooded Man Named John

All that I can remember of the end of this dream is that I was standing outside in what looked like a fictional version of the field in front of The PH Trade Days area, and I was holding an acoustic guitar.

I was about to walk back to a fictional apartment across the street where I assume I lived when I noticed what looked like a hooded figure standing behind an electrical pole near the road to my left, and I looked in that direction and there was a man wearing a hoodie with the hood on who had dark-color skin but I could not see his face.


French Cavalry Routing British Cavalry

Dream 1

This dream took place outside during the day in a fictional version of the city of D, there were a small group of old style British soldiers wearing fancy red and black and white military uniforms with old style rifles and swords riding on horses, and I was in the area that they were passing through.

The British soldiers got confronted by some old style French soldiers who were wearing fancy old style French military uniforms with old style rifles and swords who were also riding horses, I guess the British soldiers were survivors of a previous battle that the French had won, and a very brief battle began between both groups.

They were near a field that had some rich French citizens wearing old style fancy clothing, the British soldiers were outnumbered and quickly retreated / got routed, but the French soldiers chased them as the French citizens cheered and taunted the British soldiers.

The British soldiers rode over a hill where more French cavalry was, even more than the previous group, and the French cavalry started to surround them.

I can not remember if there was a brief battle or not, I just know that the French soldiers let the British soldiers escape to my surprise and confusion as they and the French citizens taunted and cheered, but I woke up.

Dream 2

This dream seemed to take place at a summer camp, I was possibly younger (maybe high school age or college age), and most of the people there were younger than me other than the teachers / whoever and maybe one young woman or woman with light-color skin who seemed to almost be my age.

I remember us being in a physical education-like class or something being taught by a manly patriotic possibly Christian mustached hairy man with light-color, during the class the oldest young woman or woman there kept glancing at me like she was interested in me, and she talked to me several times like she wanted to have sex with me or something.

After class she talked to me and she asked me to come sleep in her bed with her as we were eating food that included cheap not so good donuts from maybe Walmart that had white glaze on them, I was cautious but she managed to convince me, but I told her to keep it PG – PG-13.

Afterward we went to her room, I am not sure what happened there other than me once again reminding her to try to keep it PG – PG-13, and then there was a time jump.

This time jump was possibly just me daydreaming of possible outcomes if we did have sex, in one outcome the woman showed up again in the future pregnant, and in another the woman showed up in the future telling me that she had lied about her age to me back in the past and that she had even showed me a fake ID back then and she apologized.

But I woke up.

Dream 3

This dream took place at The BP Library, and I was there working and it seemed that I had just started my work day.

I was doing a patrol checking the computers et cetera in the main areas, and then I was going to check on my coworker Mrs. SS to see if she needed help setting up her kid’s program for the day.

In the kid’s section was a small table with at least three computers and at the computers were my female coworkers JB and MA and possibly a new fictional coworker who was a young woman with light-color skin, and I stopped to talk to them but they were busy talking so I stood there for a moment waiting to say something to JB.

They did not seem to notice me really, I did not want to wait too long because I needed to finish my patrol and then check on Mrs. SS, and I remember feeling a bit hurt and /or rejected and / or sad and / or disappointed that I would have to walk away and hope to talk to them later because I did want to tell JB something or talk to her.

I started to walk away but I noticed some lights flickering and going out, and that it looked darker.

My female coworker DC was at the front desk and she noticed this too, and we both said something about this.

I wondered if the electricity was going out or something, and so I was going to check but then I heard a female voice yell: “John!” and it almost sounded like MA, and this scared me because it was sudden and it almost sounded like someone was in serious need of help but then not really at the end and it seemed that they were just trying to get my attention.

I turned around to walk back to see if it was MA, but I woke up.

The end,

-John Jr


Vacationing In Russia | Sneaker Pimp & French King Cake | A Convention | An Awards Show

Dream 1

This dream took place during a gray day and I was with most of my family driving through the countryside of Russia, we were making a sudden and possibly short vacation trip to Russia, and we were driving up a country road that was becoming increasingly flooded and muddy which almost made us turn around and leave but we continued.

At some point on our left in a field I saw what I thought was a very small and rough and inhumane refugee camp, this was by one of the muddiest and most flood areas, and I was worried that we were at risk of getting stuck and / or getting robbed and / or attacked.
