Arnold Schwarzenegger And Menopause

All that I can remember of the end of this dream is that it seemed to take place in a slightly fictional nicer version of the city of D that had recently experienced a serious disaster, probably a storm like a hurricane, but I am not sure.

I was walking to The BP Library for work near where the train tracks should be / are, the area across the street from the fictional larger building that the library was in and it was up higher than the area on the other side, and so I had to make my way up.

A Gang Selling Things From A Lobby?

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place inside and outside in dimly lit areas that seemed to somehow be part of where I possibly lived and possibly part library and part school-like, and in this outdoor/indoor-like courtyard area I had a computer that seemed to be mine.

I remember using the computer at some point and then I went to the bathroom or something in one of the few completely indoor areas, and then I returned to log-out of my computer because I had forgotten.

There were other people around using this area so I was glad that I remembered that I had not logged out because some random student or library patron could have had access to everything.

At some point I joined up with the students like I was a student too, even though I was older than everyone it seemed, and I remember waiting in line with the students as I talked to a thin male student with dark-color skin.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day and I remember driving to a fictional parking lot with one or more people, and we went inside a building that looked an abandoned building in the entrance lobby.

The lobby was rough and mostly concrete with almost no furniture like they wanted to discourage people who were homeless from using this, there was a mostly empty office-like room or a room that people used to sale things from, and there were some bathrooms and a few other places.

It seemed that this part of the building was abandoned but could be used by the public, but they probably only wanted people to just use the bathrooms and leave.

Past this were some doors that led to what looked like a school that was still being used by some people, and it was in better condition and it was not all concrete.

At some point after leaving the school area there was a middle-aged man with light-color skin holding a box having a standoff with another man who seemed homeless and had dark-color skin, they acted like they may pull guns on each other if this deal failed, but they were only joking around.

There was now a line of people outside of the empty office-like room, there was a group inside that room of men with dark-color skin who seemed to be gang members who would sometimes use this room to sell and trade things with people, and they had lookouts et cetera outside the building and inside the building.

It seemed that they would set up briefly somewhere and people would come to trade and buy things, probably including illegal things, and I walked outside to walk to my automobile and there was a line outside as well.

I did not want anything to do with this, I was going to wait in my automobile until the others were ready to go, but then I woke up.

The end,

Where Is My Coworker JB And Her Family?

I barely remember part of the end of my last dream.

I remember being inside a multi-story building with some of my coworkers and their families, maybe some of my family, and maybe some other people.

I remember being on the ground level of the main floor / lobby / auditorium / whatever where there were indoor balcony-like areas for each floor that overlooked the area where I was standing with many of the others, and the others were standing along the balcony areas looking down where we were.

I am not sure if this was an all staff training event for The BP Library that was taking place in another city or if we were on a work trip or what was going on exactly, whatever was happening our families were allowed to be there, and we were possibly at the opening ceremony and / or watching a movie or something and / or was watching the first event.

I can not remember most of the dream so I have no idea, I just know that we were probably going to be going to take photographs next in a different part of the building on one of the upper floors, and I remember seeing my female coworker JB and her husband and her children on one of the balcony-like areas.

At some point I did not see JB and her family, I remember glancing around sometimes looking for them from where I was standing, but I was still not seeing them.

For some reason this bothered me, I felt restless / worried / maybe anxiety / et cetera, and this got worse as time went on.

For some reason it really bothered me that: I did not see them any more, that they had seemly disappeared, that I was not sure if they were okay or not, or if I would see them again, et cetera.

Me not seeing JB and her family anymore really bothered me, in the real world my body was possibly starting to feel a bit hot and maybe I was tossing and turning in bed a bit feeling some of the same feelings / emotions, and this did not feel good at all in the dream or the real world.

Instead of going to look for them I tried to tell myself that they had probably just stepped away for a moment or something and that things were probably okay, this probably did not help much, and I tried to avoid looking / glancing around for them much.

I told myself that I would just keep an eye out for them as we move to the next area and if I did not see them then, then I would probably ask around and look for them, and I hoped that we would move to the next area soon because this was really bothering me more than it should.

Not long after this it was time to start walking to the next area for photographs, I remember looking around as we walked, and I still did not see JB and her family but I kept looking around as we walked.

I woke up during this feeling the same emotions and I felt bad, and so the feelings continued into the real world even at work where I finally saw JB again for only the second time this week; and I did not talk to her beyond just saying good morning, I took my usual cautious approach, which made things worse.

Today I have thought about why did that bother me so much in the dream, and I tried to make sense of it.

It connects to some things from the real world known and unknown, some worries and fears and mysteries and feelings and thoughts and beliefs et cetera that probably need to be addressed, but some things are not completely clear.

The end,

My Former Classmate MM Becomes A Muslim And Changes His Name

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I fell asleep on the couch and woke up few times without voice recording my dreams, I never did get in bed so I slept on the not so comfortable couch, and so now I can only barely remember part of the end of my last dream.

The end of this dream took place inside the lobby of what was probably a restaurant, and I was babysitting a male toddler who was possibly my nephew CC but I am not sure.

There was a room to our right that had an opening and maybe there was another room like this to our left, and in the middle of the lobby was the line of people waiting their turn to pay and then be seated.

I moved between these areas with the toddler following him, walking with him while holding his hand and sometimes holding him, and playing with him et cetera.

At some point I noticed a man in the line who looked like my former male classmate MM, and so I walked over to the man with the toddler and I greeted him and I asked him if he was MM.

The man made a neutral-negative serious facial expression and he told me that was not his name anymore which caught me by surprise and confused me, that he was Muslim now and that he had changed his name, and after I went to guess his new name after an awkward pause after it seemed that he might end the conversation he told me what his new name was but I can not remember it now.

I said a few more things to him even though he seemed to not want to talk to anyone, like maybe talking about his conversion to Islam and his name change was annoying to him now after having to do it so much, and the conversation quickly ended as he turned away clearly not wanting to talk even though the conversation not over yet.

I then walked away with the toddler still surprised by all of this, and I did not expect something like this from MM.

MM was a very smart student back when we were in school, he was possibly mostly raised by his grandmother in a Christian household, he used to finish his tests faster than anyone else, he got a scholarship to and / or he got accepted into maybe Duke University, he got an Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) college scholarship, and after finishing college and AFROTC he was to become a military officer in a certain Air Force so I was curious about how he had ended up converting to Islam and changing his name.

I thought that would be an interesting story to hear, but he clearly did not want to talk it seemed so I did not bother him again.

But I woke up,
