A Birthday Surprise / Prank?

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I remembered part of several dreams but I ended up forgetting all of them except for barely part of two dreams because I probably accidentally went back to sleep, I was doing several things at once later when I was trying to voice record my dreams and another dream came to my mind so I went to voice record that dream, but my last two dreams faded away while I was voice recording the older dream.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of the end of this dream is that I was on maybe an upper floor of a college or school-like building, and I probably walked from a hall with carpet into another hall with carpet where there were classrooms on both sides of the hall with classes taking place in some of them.

I remember shelving objects on one or more shelves on the right side of the hall, and I remember a female student with light-brown skin with dark-hair glancing at me a few times from a classroom as she sat in class.

At some point their class was over and the female student and some of her female friends / classmates walked over to me, and the female student who had glanced at me earlier asked me something that I can not remember that caught me off-guard and made me uncomfortable.

I can not remember what she asked or said or what I said, I just know that I said something to help get me out of the situation, and I sensed that the female student was probably interested in me.

She spoke English with an accent like she probably knew Spanish and was possibly from Mexico and / or The United States (Mexican American), I could not tell how old these students were but I assumed that they were either freshmen or sophomores in college or seniors in high school, either way that is too young in my opinion.

Whatever I said got me out of the situation for now, but I assumed that she would probably try talking to me again in the future because she was probably interested in me so I would have to try to figure out how to respond and handle the situation next time if I was correct about this to avoid making things even more awkward but I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in maybe a slightly fictional version of the city of D on Eastside in the neighborhoods across from The B Alternative School or a fictional city that was similar, and I was possibly outside walking or I was driving through the neighborhoods but I can not remember which.

At some point my former male classmate SS greeted me happily, he was either walking or driving, and he invited me somewhere that I can not remember and we ended up driving but I can not remember if we were in his automobile or my automobile or who was driving.

As we were driving some crazy things started to happen, one of which was it seemed that a woman possibly got shot and fell face first in the field near the church on the street that leads to the street in front of The B Alternative School, and things got even crazier and wilder from there as my former male classmate SS overreacted and started driving fast and crazy to escape the neighborhood (so he was driving).

I tried to get him to calm down and slow down, I probably wanted us to stop and help the woman, but he would not calm down or slow down or stop.

And other crazy things happened that I can not remember like people making a lot of noise and seeing crazy things happening around the neighborhood, but it all seemed possibly fake like I was being pranked and so it seemed that my former classmate SS was overacting intentionally as part of a possible prank.

Some of the people doing crazy things and the woman who supposedly got shot all looked like they were possibly friends and family members of Ryan Higa (Nigahiga) and maybe my former classmate SS (who is from South Korea), and so that also made me think that this was all some kind of huge prank that my former classmate SS and maybe Ryan Higa and others had set up for me for some unknown reason(s) so I assumed that maybe they were doing this for his YouTube channel (Nigahiga) or something like that.

I started trying to figure out why they would be pranking me like this, I then realized that it was my birthday (so maybe this dream took place in the future on my birthday because today is not my birthday), and so maybe this was all a huge birthday prank and surprise.

I assumed that my former classmate SS would drive me somewhere where the others would try to get to before us, I assumed that after we drove past them that they would immediately jump into automobiles to drive to the location using another route, so that they can surprise me with surprise birthday party when we arrive.

When I realized this possibility I started to get emotional, was it possible that my former classmate SS who I have not seen in years would return to set up this huge birthday prank and surprise for me?

I remember almost crying or slightly crying as I thought about this possibility and about what might happen when we reach where ever we were going, and so I played various possibilities in my mind.

I decided to enjoy the show and join in the possible prank fun so I started pretending to overreact as well to the craziness.

But I can not remember if we really reached the location and if I was correct about this being a birthday prank and surprise because I am not sure if the things that I remember were my daydreams of what might happen and / or if they are things that really happen.

This was one of the dreams that mostly faded from my mind, and so that is all that I can remember.

An Old Memory Of Shopping At A Walmart After A Medical Procedure

Source: Wikimedia Commons

Yesterday while I was shelving books in the non-fiction section at my shelver job at The BP Library, a memory from my past when I was younger suddenly came to my mind for no clear reason, and so I decided to share it on my blog.

The memory was of me going to a Walmart in the city of MB (this Walmart no longer exists now) years ago when I was a younger, my parent’s were with me and maybe my brother GC if he was born yet (if he was born then he was probably a baby or a very young kid at this time), and we had just left from maybe a hospital in maybe the city of LC where I had a medical procedure done on me.

I thought that I was put to sleep and that they took a stomach tissue sample (did a biopsy) but my mom thinks that they did an upper GI (took an x-ray of my upper gastrointestinal tract) after they had me drink some thick nasty chalky white liquid (maybe Barium Sulfate) so she is probably correct and I am probably wrong, I can not remember why exactly and my mom can not remember either but we both believe that I was having some stomach problems at the time, and I can not remember the results but my mom says that the doctor did not find anything wrong exactly but he felt that I possibly had something that my mom can not remember where I would need to take a certain medication (medicine) for the rest of my life.

Because there was not enough evidence of there being something wrong with me, my mom refused the option where I would have to take medication for the rest of my life.

I was probably still wearing a hospital bracelet, and I remember looking in the toy section (which was my favorite place in stores when I was a kid) and going around the store with my parent’s.

I can not remember if I was in a wheelchair or a buggy (shopping cart) at first or if I was walking at first.

I remember some of the layout of the Walmart, it was the small Walmarts that they used to have back then, and I remember some of the rows and how the toy section was in the back of the store near almost the middle and how the lighting was darker than it is now in the modern Walmarts (I prefer the darker lighting in the old Walmarts, it made things feel more comfortable and private, now you feel like you are in the spotlight and everything is too bright and too public).

I have no idea why this memory came to my mind at work, but there it is.

Being Tested With Tests And Going Through Short Versions Of All Grades Of School Again

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was shelving items on a shelf like I do at my shelver job at The B Parish Library, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that maybe something and/or someone had my former classmates and I going through a series of short tests (whatever) as we probably worked our way through super short test versions of maybe every grade of public school starting from either preschool or kindergarten or first grade.

I am not sure who are what was testing us and for what purpose(s), but I assume that this dream was partly inspired by this Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know – HowStuffWorks YouTube video called “MIT, Cereal, And Human Experimentation” that I watched yesterday:

My memory of this dream is unclear so all that I can remember is mostly being outside in a field with my former classmates during maybe an unclear day, I remember each of us having a shelf or part of a shelf, and we had to put the items on our shelves or parts of shelves in order like I do at my shelver job at The B Parish Library.

I am not sure when this happened but I remember us moving to another part of the field where there were tables and chairs after we finished a test and/or grade of school, and there was pizza and calzones (I did not know about these at first) for us to eat.

I remember talking with some of my former classmates like my former male classmate AM, eventually my former male classmate JF told me that there were calzones too and he gave me a calzone that was in a pizza box by him, and I thanked him.

There was pepperoni pizza, sausage pizza, and maybe pepperoni and sausage pizza including deep-dish pizzas.

We enjoyed this break and reward, after we finished it was time for us to move to the next test or grade of school (maybe second or third grade), and many of us raced across the field as a competition and/or part of a test to see who could get there first.

I remember my former male classmate KW being one of the people I talked to during the race, we got there after some other former classmates, and I was surprised that they beat us there.

We all had to line up in lines, so we did, and eventually we walked into a fictional version of maybe C Elementary into classrooms or a classroom to maybe have a short lecture and/or to take a test.

I assume that if you pass the test you would pass this grade and move on, this is what we probably had to do for each grade of school, and maybe after passing there would be another test outside and/or a break and/or reward.

I remember us sitting at desks waiting for the class and/or test to start, but I woke up.

John Jr Gets Pwned (Hacked) Through Pop-Up Ads

After 4 AM this morning my sleep and dreams got disturbed by me waking up sick to my stomach from something that I ate again, I drunk/drank some apple cider vinegar and some water, voice recorded what I could remember of my dreams, and then I tried to go back to sleep.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was at a slightly fictional version of The BP Library working at my shelver job, a fictional female coworker with white skin with long brown hair and I were sorting and setting up items on some carts, and then we started shelving the items.

There were some other people with carts, my female coworker and I would go to those carts to also shelve those items, but something strange kept happening that I can not remember where maybe the items on the carts kept changing and/or new items kept being added so this task seemed confusing and never-ending.

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

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is being inside a building with various different types of areas, I remember walking and talking with my former male classmate DH through an abandoned office-like area, and at some point I walked over to some windows without glass where you could see into maybe an alley.

I saw my male cousin ME and his girlfriend CH (who is a former classmate of mine), I greeted them and they greeted me back smiling, and then things became a bit like the video game Grand Theft Auto Online where my cousin ME and his girlfriend CH pulled out guns.

They smiled and they went to point their guns at me, I asked them what they were doing, and then they started shooting at me so I took cover and I pulled out a gun asking them to stop attacking me but that did not work so I returned fire so that I could run to warn my former classmate DH.

I warned my former classmate DH and then I took cover waiting to ambush my cousin ME and his girlfriend CH when they enter the building to attack us, I can not remember what happened during our shootout exactly, but I assume that my cousin ME and his girlfriend CH ran away once they realized that they could not win.

My former classmate DH and I then continued our journey like nothing had happened, and we walked into another part of the building that was like Walmart.

We saw some of our former classmates among the other shoppers, and our former female classmate AV was one of the employees at a series of lines that we waited in among other shoppers.

While we waited in line I remember our former classmate AV and the other employees talking about something, they each needed to pick a day of the week or something, and this had something to do with a new rule at their job that would take effect/affect soon and would effect/affect which line of shoppers that they would deal with and some other job related things.

I remember finding an old pair of hair clippers that I recognized, possibly from the early to mid 2000s, and it seemed to be used by the employee who does haircuts and I had memories of it like maybe I used to cut hair with it.

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

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was inside a fictional house during the day in a living room with my dad, I think that I had a laptop or notebook computer that I was controlling using maybe a Xbox 360 controller oddly, and so it was difficult moving around compared to a mouse and keyboard.

I was browsing the internet at maybe a video streaming website that had various films and televisions shows to watch online for free, illegally, but then some pop-up ads popped up so I tried to exit out of them but several other pop-up ads also popped up trying to confuse you and trick you into pressing the wrong thing when trying to exit out of them.

I accidentally clicked maybe Exit instead of the X, this activated some malware and/or an exploit that started installing some software (probably malware) on my computer, and so I tried to exit out of it but I had to get the pop-up ads out-of-the-way.

The malware installed itself and several programs before I could do this, I was annoyed and was about to exit the browser and run and update and scan for malware with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Free) and Windows Defender, but my computer started vibrating and ringing with a silly and happy ring tone like my computer was now also hacked (pwned) and the hacker was calling to taunt me and/or was activating my computer to be used in whatever way they wanted to use it and/or to do several other things to it.

I closed my computer and I backed away from it not sure what was going on at first, but then I realized that I needed to disconnect the internet and turn off the wireless internet to stop them from remotely controlling my computer while I run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Free) and Windows Defender and uninstall the various programs that were installed by their malware and do various other things to clean up and secure my computer and the data on it before they encrypt it or something using ransomware and/or use my computer as part of a botnet and/or make copies of my files.

But I woke up.

Dream 4

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place outside during the day at what seemed to be an outdoor funeral, for maybe a woman who was possibly in her 30s, and a woman with very light brown skin with short hair was standing at a podium talking to the crowd and I assume that this woman was the mother of the dead woman.

Sitting behind her was a well-dressed man with dark-brown skin with short black hair, he seemed like the type of man who knew how to be charming and how to dress et cetera, and the woman turned to him and said that she never thought that he was good enough for her daughter.

He responded that he agreed with her, the crowd laughed, but then the woman said that she knew who he really was and what he did like she was implying that he had been abusive to her daughter and that she felt that he had killed her daughter or was involved with her daughter’s death in some way.

The woman then started to say some negative things about the man, and the man jumped up angrily and he got in her face like he was about to attack her.

The crowd gasped in shock, I heard some comments of surprise like: “I could never get in my mom’s or my mother-in-law’s face like that!”, and then the man realized what he was doing and that the crowd was watching so he slowly backed off.

He clearly had anger problems and would have attacked her if the crowd had not been there and responding like they did, and then the crowd started to turn on him.

Oddly most of the people in the crowd seemed to be women, I wondered if them and some of the men were going to attack him or not, but I woke up.
