Defeating Oscar De La Hoya For A Championship Belt

This was a long interesting and detailed transitioning dream that kept transitioning to different things without me noticing, unfortunately this caused me to forget a lot of the dream because too much was going on and it was so long and detailed, and so what I do remember does not do this dream justice because it was an interesting dream compared to what I will share below.

Part 1

At some point in this dream (I am not sure how I was seeing this in the dream) during maybe the day the actor Will Smith was with the actress Jada Pinkett Smith, I could be wrong but this possibly took place in the past when they were younger than they are now, and they were talking like maybe they were going to have sex but something that I can not remember happened that led to them arguing instead.


Sleep And Natalie Tran And A Film Trailer About One Of The Most Powerful Dreamers Of All Time

Dream 1

This dream was possibly inspired by me briefly researching anti-snoring devices (snoring aids) before going to bed.

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it involved sleep: sleeping, sleeping positions, maybe sleep disorders (snoring, sleep apnea, et cetera), maybe sleep related jobs, maybe treatments for sleep disorders, maybe dreams, sleep research and helping solve mysteries involving sleep and inventing new ways to help people with sleeping disorders, et cetera.

Some of the dream involved me trying to sleep and comparing sleeping positions and my discomfort while trying to sleep, and there was a competition with an obstacle course involving a race among people who were racing each other to finish the obstacle course first and this somehow had something to do with sleep and maybe dreams but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it started during the day at a college campus, I was walking toward a courtyard-like area where there was a large college concession stand outside, and I had past memories of how this area used to look so maybe I used to be a student at this college.

In my past memories Natalie Tran from the YouTube channel CommunityChannel was a student at this college, she had a small concession stand in this area, and next to her concession stand was maybe a small college concession stand or some kind of other type of stand owned by the college.

Natalie (Nat) was using her small concession stand to try to earn a bit of money as she went to college it seemed, and eventually she got an old vending machine with candy next to her concession stand so that she could earn money even during the times that her concession stand was closed.

The old vending machine was the type that the candy that was not packaged individually so the candy was poured into separate containers together, and a certain amount of candy would fall out into your hands after you put your coins in and select the candy you want and turn a lever (whatever).

Eventually the college expanded their college concession stand to be much larger, and now I had returned to the college for the first time in a while to see if Natalie’s concession stand and vending machine was still there and to see how things looked now after maybe a few years had passed I assume.

I saw the new expanded college concession stand but Natalie’s concession stand and vending machine was gone, and so I assume that the college had made her close it and get rid of her vending machine because they probably did not want competition.

This was disappointing because I had hoped to talk to Natalie and visit her concession stand and see her old vending machine, I wanted to talk to her about how things used to be and compared them to how things are now, and ask her about the history of her concession stand and vending machine.

I then noticed in the distance across the courtyard and/or near and/or in a parking lot that Natalie and some kids (maybe family members, one of them was a boy wearing glasses with black hair in a bowl-style haircut with the same skin color as her who looked like one of her family members) and maybe a few adults/students were standing near maybe a stand or booth-like structure, and so I walked over to talk with her and ask her what happened to her concession stand and vending machine.

Natalie saw me walking over and she made a facial expression like she was wondering why this unknown man was walking toward her, she seemed a bit uncomfortable and confused, and then I greeted her and she tried to politely force a smile and respond even though she was clearly a bit afraid/nervous/cautious.

I told her that I remembered her concession stand and vending machine that she used to have, she assumed that she knew what I would ask or say next so she started to respond to what she assumed, but she was wrong so I let her know that I was actually going to ask her something else.

I asked her what happened to her old vending machine and concession stand, I told her that I assumed that the college had made her get rid of it and close her stand to avoid her competing with their college concession stand, and she responded but I can not remember her responses.

I think that the college made her get rid of the vending machine first, they gave a reason that made no sense and that was probably just an excuse, but they probably had other motives and that was probably just their first step in trying to get her to close her concession stand.

That failed to get her to close down her concession stand so then they probably claimed that she had to close her stand because they needed more space to expand, the probably gave conflicting excuses and reasons as well, and I assume that she then closed her stand.

I am not sure if she was possibly trying to make a new stand in this new location or not, I just remember briefly talking with her instead of talking with her longer like I had wanted to, and then I said goodbye and I started to walk away.

As I walked away I suddenly heard a male voice starting to narrate the dream like a film (movie) narrator for a film trailer with a deep voice speaking in a film trailer tone, and the male voice said something like:

“A film or story from and/or about and/or inspired by one of the most powerful dreamers of all time (which I assume was me, I disagreed with being considered one of the most powerful dreamers of all time, but it did sound nice). (He said a few other things that I can not remember)”

The dream was still going on but now I felt like part of it was becoming a live film trailer with me as the main character so I walked and acted cool, and there were dramatic sound effects and music and slow-motion effects as I walked and as the narrator talked.

Suddenly a bed appeared in front of me with an old scary-looking shriveled up woman laying in the bed dying it seemed, and a female nurse or woman was next to her bed with her.

The scary old shriveled up dying woman probably had no teeth and she sat up in bed reaching toward me and she could only make a sound effect like a weak: ahhhh moaning-like sound when someone is dying or a light-zombie-like sound effect.

Instead of recoiling in fear and backing away I calmly moved toward her and I put my head against her forehead, and then I either jumped into another dream or woke up into another dream or something like that and there were some sound effects made to mark this transition (maybe Inception trailer-like sounds) and the narrator probably compared this film to the film Inception and The Matrix and several other films.

In this new dream I remember being with a woman with white skin with short brown hair, maybe the woman who had been next to the dying woman but I am not sure, but I can not remember what happened during this part.

After that part the woman and I were transitioned to possibly another dream in the distant past, the woman was wearing animal skin clothing and she had primitive weapons, and we were both in the middle of a battle next to a river.

Our tribe/village/group/whoever was battling another tribe/village/group in a war it seemed, we stayed close to each other and we fought bravely watching each other’s backs, and we were probably outnumbered.

There was a time jump to after the battle and I was waking up like I had been knocked unconscious during the battle near the river, and I saw the woman under the water unconscious and drowning.

I reached in the river and I pulled her out, she woke up, and then a man from our tribe walked over to let us know that he was glad that we were alive.

He was part of the reinforcements/reinforcements who had arrived to help us because we were outnumbered and we were losing when they arrived, I guess the woman and I had been knocked unconscious during this, but we were alive now and our tribe had won this battle for now at least (the enemy probably retreated for now).

We were tired and sore and we looked around at the dead bodies on the land and in the water, it was a bit depressing, we sat there glancing around and making sure that we both were okay as the reinforcements helped the wounded and gathered the dead.

I was glad to have had a loyal and capable person fighting at my side and watching my back during the battle, and so I told the woman this and I told her that I am glad that she survived.

In the previous part that I can not remember this woman had been at my side in that dream, and so it seemed that we would keep jumping between dreams and time periods and worlds et cetera together like we were the main characters of this film that the trailer was talking about.

I woke up during this, this was probably all part of the trailer still, but I can not remember.

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Voice Work, and this is what it said:

Your blog is about to be recorded into an audiobook. If you could choose anyone — from your grandma to Samuel L. Jackson — to narrate your posts, who would it be?

And this is my response:

Finally, an easy Daily Prompt 😀 , I would probably choose the actress Tilda Swinton to narrate my posts from my blog for an audiobook because I like her voice and accent:

Narrating A Dream? | Imagining That I Own A Brick Building

Source: Wikimedia Commons

Once again I went to bed not being able to breathe out of my nose and I did not go to sleep until after 3:00 AM because I was having a hard time sleeping as I alternated between not being able to breathe out of my nose to being able to breathe out of my nose, and I had several dreams; but I forgot all of my dreams except for barely part of two dreams that I barely remember.

Dream 1

I know that I had more dreams last night and I know that this dream was longer and clearly but unfortunately I can not remember those other dreams or most of this dream, but I think that I was narrating (if that is the correct word) the entire first dream I guess because I remember thinking about and talking about the dream out-loud during the dream; but I am not sure if I was directly in the dream or not, and I can not remember what I dreamed about exactly.

I think that part of the dream took place inside a fictional building that had several people inside of it and maybe some parts of the dream took place outside during the day but I can not remember the details of the dream, but I do remember giving my opinion of various things out-loud and describing things in the dream out-loud; but that is all that I can remember of this dream unfortunately.

Dream 2

The second dream took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of the downtown area in the city of D in the field near where the D Museum and maybe where the I Theater should be across the street from the C&T Store, and there was a small one-story abandoned reddish colored brick building in the small field; and I remember imagining if I owned that building to use it as a house.

So basically I was somewhat daydreaming/dreaming/semi-lucid dreaming in the dream because I was able to stand there visualizing myself owning the building, and I was able to visualize what changes I would make to the building while imagining what it would be like to live in it and I was even able to visualize another person (I have no idea of who she was, maybe my wife, but I know that she had whitish colored skin with almost shoulder length reddish colored hair) and I probably even visualized myself there with her; and by visualize I mean that I was literally able to see these changes happening before me, and I could make changes just by thinking them and I could even reset the building back to its original condition.

So I stood there making changes with my mind and watching those changes happen before me, and I watched as my fictional wife/whoever and the visualized/imagined version of myself lived at the building; but these moments were brief jumps in time, but I was even able to hear some of the conversations between my fictional wife and the visualized/imagined version of myself.

I heard their conversation when they first started cleaning up/fixing up the building after I/they bought it, they were both happy/excited and positive about the potential of the building, and they talked about what changes they would make to it/et cetera; and at some point I reset the building back to its original condition and my daydream/dream within a dream/semi-lucid dream/whatever ended.

I remember saying something out-loud to myself something like: “If only that/those things could really happen/were true/were real, because this building has potential, and I could really imagine myself owning it; and it is sad to see a building going to waste/wasting away like that.” and then I walked off smiling to myself and shaking my head from side-to-side horizontally knowing that it would probably never really happen/that I would probably never really get a chance to own the building; and I woke up.

A Semi-Lucid-Like Dream With Powers

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I forgot all of my dreams except for part of one dream, I know that I had more dreams but I can not remember part of my last dream, which was an interesting dream that seemed semi-lucid but I do not think that I realized that I was dreaming; but somehow it seemed that my thoughts/daydreams in the dream were effecting/affecting my abilities/powers in the dream.

I remember walking in an unknown parking lot toward a multi-floor(ed)/story(ied) building during the day, and I was thinking/daydreaming to myself; and jokingly making up a film trailer or film in my mind staring me as I was narrating, and I imagined myself with special powers/abilities and not being completely Human or Human anymore a bit like a vampire or something but probably something else unknown/unnamed.

I walked into the building on the first floor where there was a modern looking open floor/room with a restaurant / café area, a bar area, and a lounge/study/sitting area; and there were various people there doing various things like eating, drinking, talking, reading, et cetera.

I walked through the room narrating in my mind and acting like I was in a film, I was mostly narrating & doing internal dialogue about the people in the room & what I thought that they were thinking/feeling & I narrated information about my character.

I was mostly making stuff up as I narrated/acted, but it felt like I knew some of this stuff already like my mind was creating & thinking & knowing at the same time; and this seemed to be effecting/affecting the dream world because it seemed that I actually started to feel like I had special powers/abilities.

I walked across the entire room to the sitting area where a few  people were reading, and I sat by a woman & a few other people; and I began to try to talk to her and/or some of the people, but the woman or someone instantly was rejecting communicating with me somehow knowing what/who I was.

She or the person somehow knew that my character was not Human or completely Human, and she or the person named various negative things about my characters kind and/or about my character; most of which or all of which was not true in regards to me, but some of what she said of others might have been true; but I can not remember.

The woman or person then refused to talk with me and ignored me and/or left, and then a man I knew from somewhere (probably a former schoolmate/co-worker like JF or a fake version of him) sat not far from me; and he recognized me, and something happened that I can not remember that caused him to get angry at me at some point after a positive start & he tried attacking me.

I was faster than normal, I could jump further than normal, I could dodge better than normal, and so I ran around using my special powers/abilities to easily avoid him; which made him even more angry, and he started to have powers too it seemed.

I guess he was a vampire or something else or partly Human, I do not think that he was what I was, and I ran around having fun avoiding him & testing my powers.

People watched the action as I ran in & out of the building jumping, dodging, and hiding; and I was having a lot of fun, I was laughing & taunting the man a bit, and his anger seemed to make him more powerful.

He started trying to kill me it seemed and so the people watching got scared and called the police & security, and I had to stop playing around so much; and at some point I tricked the man into thinking that I ran to the next floor up the stairs, so he ran up there, but I was really still on the first floor.

The police and security arrived as witnesses told them what happened and they questioned me, everyone was on my side, and I even over-acted pretending to be more worried about my safety than I really was.

The police and security believed me/us and they went after the man, who was out of control, and I wondered what were the limits of my powers & so I was going to test my powers some more while the security & police dealt with the man; and if they needed my help, then I would help them, or I would help them once I tested my powers a bit more in case the man really was more powerful than I thought, but I woke up.
