Dream 1

Last night I remember two of my dreams, the first dream took place on a street by my parent’s house.

Me and one of my brothers saw a little restaurant that looked like the O Wok, so we decided to go get some food there.

Also on the street there was a Martial Arts Dojo, it looked like a Karate Dojo, but I could be wrong.

We went inside the restaurant and we were surprised that it looked pretty good inside, compared to the outside.

There were about two or three younger workers and a middle-aged man, who looked like the main chef,  and the workers looked like they probably worked at the Martial Arts Dojo too; because it looked like they had Karate uniforms on under their work uniforms.

There was a sign that had pictures of all the meals they had, but I saw no prices, so I asked to see a menu; and on the menu there were only four meals.

As my brother and I looked at the menu, the workers said that one of the meals was not good, and they recommended some chicken dish with peanuts; so we ordered that.

Their was a small buffet on the counter, and they let us sample some of the food on there.

Then my brother and I sat down at a table, and there were a lot of people in line waiting to order food.

I can not remember if we ate or not, all I can remember is walking across the street to a house.

In the house was an old woman and a family of about nine people, and the house was small; but I think that it had about four or five bedrooms.

There was a small room when you first walked into the house that had a washing machine and dryer, then there was a living room with two bed rooms connected to it, after that there was a kitchen+dining room+family room+a couple of bedrooms, and the house was like a shotgun style house.

As I was in the living room, the old woman showed me some pictures on the wall of her family, and next to the pictures of her family were some pictures of people from my family; and some blank picture frames.

I remember that there were only a few pictures of people from my family and there was a picture of my uncle JF, my dad, and me.

The woman did not speak much English, so I did not get many answers to my questions, but I think she said that my family was part of her family.

She said that they nobody in my family had talked to them in years, and that those few pictures they had were mailed to them years ago.

The woman and her family looked like the stereotypical Korean or Japanese or Chinese Americans (as in the ethnic group / nationality), but as far as I know, none of my ancestors came from those countries; but it possible since my family is a bit more diverse than the average family.

She seemed to be sad that my family had ignored them for so long, and so I felt bad and wanted to give her some new pictures of my family; so she could put them on her wall.

Also I wanted to find out if her family was really part of my family, so I could re-unite the family.

I felt a connection with their family and I wanted to learn more about them, but it was about dinner time; so everyone was eating and talking.

The family seemed to work together very well; they worked together, cleaned together, ate together, and talked together.

Family members of different ages talked together, and their family system seemed very efficient.

Some of the family was in the living room and the others were in the family room eating and talking.

I think the owners of the restaurant and the Martial Arts Dojo lived at this house too, then I woke up.

Dream 2

My second dream was about my job, except everything looked different.

This is the third or fourth time that my job has looked like a library a bit, and in my dream, my job had an all carpet floor; and things seemed like a library for some reason.

All the workers were younger, mostly high school and college students, and they were having a lot fun; but they were not working much.

I worked as a scanner in the dream, but I did not see the scanner that I was supposed to use; and we were supposed to scan some old books.

In my group there were three men, and they were talking and pretending to work; and I just ignored them, and I tried to work.

Everything looked better and more comfortable than in real life, but people were not getting much work done, and I saw none of the people who I really work with in real life.

I remember talking to a few people, and I tried to find the scanning machines.

Then I woke up,
