Fake It Until You Make It | Mammy-Like?

Source: IMDb

Dream 1

The end of this dream took place during the day, and I was with my parents and maybe my brothers GC and CC were there earlier in the forgotten parts of the dream.

I remember sitting in a car with my mom in the street across from our yard between the yard of The B House and Mr. RD’s House, I was in the front passenger’s seat and my mom was in the driver’s seat, and we were talking; and maybe my dad was in our yard.

Several automobiles drove past us and they went to The B House, and some people were there talking with our neighbors Gas Money and Gas Money Girlfriend in their yard near their automobiles.

I remember standing outside the car talking with my mom at some point, and a man with light-color skin who was possibly a military veteran and firefighter walked over from the yard of The B House to talk to me.

This man was talking with Gas Money and Gas Money Girlfriend before he walked over to talk to me, he asked me a question that I can not remember, and we started talking.

During our conversation I found a black rock structure on the ground, I decided to take it inside our house to wash it off so that I could keep it, and so I said goodbye to the man before walking inside to do this.

While I was cleaning the rock structure I thought / daydreamed a story of a fictional man talking to the man who I had just talked to, I imagined this fictional man lying to the man about being a military veteran, and then becoming friends with the man.

During their friendship he continued the lie by learning and training with the man and his military friends (active duty and former military), which helped him to continue his lie, but eventually this learning and training and hanging out with the military veterans led to him secretly joining the military.

He lied to the military veterans to give an excuse of why he would be gone for months, during that time he finished basic training et cetera and was a real soldier at this point, and now he was no longer lying about being a soldier.

Eventually he even joined special forces, he never did tell them the truth and how he had lied to them at first, and he just hoped that they would never find out; but I woke up.

Dream 2

The end of this dream involved me returning to an apartment building that I once stayed at in the past during some false memories of a time in the past where I went to college briefly again.

A cousin and / or a former classmate of mine and some other people stayed at this apartment back in my false memories when they were in college, and I briefly moved in with them when I went to return to college.

They finished college but I was not there anymore at some point, either I left after they had already graduated or I left before they graduated, either way I probably did not finish college but they did and I was alone.

After this I had more false memories, The Young Turks (TYT) used our former apartment room as a studio / whatever for their show, but at some point they moved out as well.

Now in the present time the apartment was mostly abandoned it seemed, and it was probably at risk of being torn down.

I did go inside our former apartment room, and no one seemed to be living there.

I then walked through a multi-story building, maybe another building that was probably not part of this building, and I saw two men playing a zombie video game on an arcade machine.

We were possibly along a hallway with a rail behind us where you could possibly see the outside or something, I can not remember, I just know that it was an area that was possibly on an upper floor in a quiet area near the outside maybe.

I had played this video game earlier in a forgotten part of this dream, but I had played it on a computer or a modern video game console instead of an arcade machine so I was surprised to see that there was an arcade version of this video game.

I stopped to watch the two men play the video game, they almost finished the first level of the video game but they lost, and one of the men decided to leave so I started talking to the other man.

I offered to play the video game with him, I told him that I had played this video game before but not on an arcade machine, but I woke up.

Dream 3

This dream involved me walking through a building, maybe a multi-story multi-purpose building, and I reached an area where a wedding reception (party) was taking place.

I stopped in this area and I remember seeing an attractive well-dressed woman who was a cold intelligent independent stern motherly bossy type person who looked like and acted like a combination of the character Vera Stone from the television show The Order combined with the actress Katharine Isabelle who played that character combined with maybe the actress Lucy Lawless.

This woman was talking with another woman, this other woman managed to get the first woman to open up about how she felt, and the first woman was single and was a bit lonely and wondered why no one seemed interested in trying to date her.

During their conversation I learned that the first woman had a pretty good job and she was good at her job, but like her personality she was a bit cold and stern and motherly and bossy toward her coworkers and the children et cetera she helped take care of / teach / whatever (I can not remember what her job was).

The second woman explained why no one has probably tried dating the woman, she mentioned part of her personality as one possible problem, and she said that she was a mammy type (was mammy-like) or something like that which was another problem; and then she tried to give some words of encouragement to the first woman to help her with her sadness / loneliness / et cetera, and to help give her hope and maybe some advice to help her with this problem.

I was curious about the woman and possibly interested in her and I wanted to talk to her, but I did not want to interrupt their conversation so I decided to get some food and drink and hangout a bit waiting for a chance to maybe talk to her.

I had a very heavy backpack on at this point, while I was going to get some food, a man with light-color skin walked up behind me and he did something to my backpack that caused the heavy items to fall back and out which almost broke or damaged my back because they were so heavy and they were falling backward suddenly.

The only thing that saved me was that I am stronger than average so I was able to survive this.

The man did this so that he could get some food first, while I was recovering and trying to pick up the heavy stuff, the man was getting some food.

I was annoyed and a bit angry about this, I said a few things to him as I did this, but I did not waste my time beyond that; but then I woke up.

Dream 4

This dream involved a man using a portal as a shortcut inside a house, I assume that there was a portal inside the house that you could use to come to and from the house from another location, but I am not sure how many other portals were in other locations.

I had false memories of the past where I had used this same portal inside the house during a time where I probably lived there, and in this dream I had just used it again for the first time in a while so that I could see this house that I used to live at; and the man happened to be using the portal as well at this time.

I briefly talked to the man about this, but that is all that I can remember of this dream before I woke up.

The end,

College Orientation | A Heroic Military Veteran | Sabrina Spellman?

Several of my dreams were inspired by me watching two episodes of the web television show Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina (Season 1):

Dream 1

This dream took place at a shopping mall-like college, and it seemed that college orientation was taking place and I was one of the new students.

I remember having a schedule and attending a brief meeting before we all left our separate ways to met our advisors, visit our professors, find our classes, get our on-campus jobs, find our dorm rooms, et cetera.

At some point I went to a hall-like area with small mostly clear cubicle-like rooms that seemed to be dorm rooms, I remember going inside one of the rooms and looking at my schedule planning what to do next, and next I went to find my advisor who was a woman with dark-color skin with short black hair who was named maybe Ada.

Ada probably assigned me an on-campus job and maybe sent me on my next task, I remember seeing a group of new students who needed help and so I started helping them, and we met some people who seemed like some characters from the television show Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina (Season 1); but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream took place inside a building, probably very similar to the one from the previous dream, maybe the same building.

I was on my way to help some students and there was an attack or something going on, and an action hero Tom Cruise-like military veteran (former soldier) ran to help stop the attack by joining up with some other people (maybe some soldiers) who were trying to stop the attackers.

The military veteran and his group had assault rifles et cetera and were about to deal with the attackers, but a group of armored and assault rifle carrying special forces-looking soldiers arrived led by the actual Tom Cruise.

The military veteran and his group feared that the special forces soldiers would attack them by mistake so the military veteran tried to hide quickly as they approached searching the area, and him or someone on his team got spotted by the special forces.

The special forces soldiers attacked the good group mistaking them for the attackers, a shootout began, and the good group tried to let the special forces soldiers know that they were friendlies.

One of the special forces soldiers got hit by friendly fire from his own team and was downed immediately, and the explosion sent him flying and maybe the military veteran when flying from the explosion as well.

The special forces soldier who got hit was a man with light-color skin who was basically a super manly action hero-type with maybe a mustache, he was barely alive and he was missing some body parts, but he got up and he kept moving using pure manliness I assume like a scene in a movie; actually most of this dream seemed like a movie.

The military veteran either started waking up and got up or his status was unknown before I woke up, I am not sure which, and that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

This dream possibly involved a magic school, a fictional version of The BP Library, and maybe something else; and I was with a Sabrina Spellman-like woman or it was her from the television show Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina (Season 1).

The very end of the dream involved us being at a fictional version of The BP Library where I work, I remember us finding a chart with heights and weights with stickers with initials and names of our coworkers who had put their stickers where they line up properly with their height and weight on the chart, and I saw a sticker with initials like mine and I saw a paper that said John but I was not sure if it was mine or my coworker Mr. JM’s.

I was also not sure if I had put my sticker in the correct location, so once I felt confident enough that the sticker and paper were mine I moved them to hopefully the correct spot, and I remember talking with the Sabrina-like woman during this.

At some point we left to maybe the magic school or to get something for a school assignment from the magic school, it was day, and I remember us walking across the field behind where The HD Head Start school should be.

We were going to a certain location to maybe collect something, and maybe there was a small structure out there.

I remember us walking and talking and the Sabrina-like woman explaining things, but I woke up.

The end,

Trying To Survive | Dreaming About Dreams

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved me and some people trying to survive inside a multi-story factory / house or apartment-like building, and there were maybe zombies and / or some other threats inside and I assume outside the building like this was some kind of zombie apocalypse-like situation or something like that.

We did not have the numbers, the weapons, the armor, the training, et cetera to risk trying to clear and secure the entire building at one time so we focused on trying to make this building a place where we could live while slowly clearing it and securing it so we were in a dangerous situation.

I would sometimes have to go on clearing missions alone to clear areas, patrol areas, and to maybe get supplies; but any threats still in the building could still move around and become a problem until we completely cleared the building.

We mostly lived on the first floor in the factory areas, we used some of the equipment and things to help us survive and provide the things that we needed to survive, and we possibly partly cleared part of the second floor.

The upper floors were more house and apartment-like but these areas were the most dangerous with the most threats and the most rooms that needed to be cleared, and you could get ambushed easily because of the many rooms and hallways et cetera.

We did not have enough people to keep this building secure even if we wanted to, but we did the best that we could.

I remember us using one large clear tank thing to hold our waste, we made up some ways to have the waste broke itself down a bit, but eventually it would still fill the tank so a man with dark-color skin and a woman with light-color skin and I tried to figure out what to do about this.

I mostly guarded them while they looked around because we had to go to maybe the second floor, maybe even the roof at some point, and eventually they found a valve or something that allowed us to drain the tank.

But you had to have one person on the floor below the tank and one person on the floor of the tank to use the valve I think, and so the person on the floor above would be at risk of getting attacked by a zombie or something since we still had not cleared the entire building.

This dream took place over a period of time, I am not sure how many days though, and we were not sure how many more threats were left in the building.

Dream 2

After work I took a nap after lifting some weights inside, I woke up and I went back to sleep several times having dreams that were probably inspired by my conversation at work today with my coworker Mrs. RB about lucid dreaming, and these dreams involved me thinking about dreams during the dreams and maybe even sometimes having dreams within the dreams.

Unfortunately I can not remember most of these dreams because I kept waking up and going back to sleep without voice recording them.

These dreams all involved me thinking about dreams, fictional past dreams, the topic of dreams, and possibly dreams within dreams that I had in these dreams.

I possibly even took naps in some of these dreams and / or I referenced the fact that I had taken a nap in the real world, but I do not think that I ever realized that I was dreaming.

One dream took place during the day at fictional house / maybe store-like place with maybe a parking lot where I lived with some of my family, and I remember being outside in the parking lot area thinking about dreams and then I went inside to maybe use the bathroom.

Part of the house looked like my parent’s house, while I was in the bathroom with the door open I saw that someone was outside the front door, and through the curtains the shape of the person looked like my aunt JE and she was wearing a pink shirt.

Three of my brothers were changing clothes in the living room, and my mom went to answer the door, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Some other dreams involved me moving around different places while doing various things while thinking about dreams, and maybe even dreaming dreams.

The last dream that I remember involved a military veteran with light-color skin who had a wife who either was or used to work as a stripper or pornographic actress or a sex worker of some kind, and his wife was using him and trying to take his money or something and she possibly took him to court.

The military veteran possibly had some physical disabilities from his military service, and what his wife was doing to him really hurt him emotionally.

Eventually the military veteran won the court case and probably divorced his wife, and a military veteran charity organization supported him and made a special gift / award in his honor and it was named after him.

Military veterans could contact the charity and could request the free gift, and they would send it to them.

I remember seeing a television commercial about this free gift, and they made a joke about military veterans not knowing what to call it so they would call it: “That thing that liberals give to military veterans” or something strange like that.

Eventually the charity renamed the gift to not be named after anyone, during this dream I probably thought about dreams, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

Late Phases

Source: IMDb

What is it?

The 2014 horror drama film Late Phases.

What is it about?

This is how Metacritic describes this film:

Crescent Bay is not the best place to live out one’s golden years.

Once an idyllic retirement community, the secluded neighborhood has been beset by mysterious and deadly attacks.

When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) moves in, the residents immediately take offense to his abrasive personality.

But his take-no-prisoners attitude is just what he needs to survive as it becomes clear that the increasingly violent and patterned attacks are being caused by beasts that are neither animal nor man, and the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is harboring something truly sinister in its midst.

[Dark Sky Films]

Final Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this film maybe two years ago or more, and my brother GC was the one who told me about this movie.

This low-budget film surprised me, it is a film that I think will connect with older people more or that they can appreciate more, and the premise was unique because the main character Ambrose McKinley (played by the actor Nick Damici) is an old blind military veteran with a rough attitude and negative outlook on life.

Ambrose’s facial expressions, personality, beliefs, military experience, age, blindness, et cetera all made him a unique and interesting character who said some things that I think will make some people think about certain topics in a way that they have not thought of before.

I liked this film to my surprise when I saw it, it is a shame that most people have never heard of it or seen it, because I think that it was pretty good for this type of film and I think that it could be somewhat popular with an older audience.

The end,

Carrie Mathison Working At A Video / Video Game Rental Store

I once again woke up feeling like my memory/mind had been erased so I could not remember any of my dreams even though I know that I had some dreams and I had just awakened from a dream, I went to the bathroom and I went back to sleep, and now I barely remember part of one dream that I had after going back to sleep; but the dream is very unclear and so it will not make much sense.

The beginning of the dream is the most unclear and confusing (it was clear enough in the dream but now I can not remember most of the details and so I will probably make some huge mistakes trying to explain it) but I think that part of it took place outside during the day and maybe a small battle took place between some people from an intelligence agency (probably the CIA) and/or the military and/or I against one or more people who might have been part of a group who had some unique abilities/powers/skills/whatever, I either helped and/or worked for an intelligence agency it seemed, and the battle might have been over some intelligence/some objects but I am not sure.
