Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that some people were talking about the mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey, and at some point Ronda Rousey showed up surprisingly to give a brief press conference.

Ronda Rousey acknowledged her loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, she even actually said something positive toward Amanda Nunes and how she won their fight that I can not remember (I am not sure if she really meant it though, it somewhat sounded like something people just say because it is expected, and so it sounded a bit empty and scripted), and she said that she wants to fight again in the UFC one day in the future so she is not retiring yet.

But she said it in a way that sounded like it would be far in the future before she fights again, like maybe she would take another year break from the UFC or something, and then she probably ended the press conference.

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

Dream 2

Unfortunately I can only remember part of this interesting dream from last night, and in some ways this dream somewhat reminded me of something from the film Inception.

All that I can remember of this dream now is that it seemed to take place in the future and I was with a group of fictional people who probably knew one or more of my brothers, and I went with them to a somewhat futuristic room inside a somewhat futuristic building that probably belonged to a certain corporation.

Inside this room was a woman with whitish-colored skin wearing futuristic gray with white trim and maybe one or more colors clothing that somewhat reminded me of something that might be worn in the Capitol from The Hunger Games films except that it was practical and not as flamboyant but her hairstyle and futuristic accessories and appearance was slightly flamboyant and futuristic, who seemed to be a futuristic employee/scientist at this assumed corporation who was a somewhat high-level employee who seemed to be in control of this room and part of the assumed corporation, and she had one or more assistants.

There were some futuristic chairs scattered around the room and some equipment that was probably somewhat like a more advanced version of the Portable Automated Somnacin IntraVenous Device (PASIV Device) from the film Inception, maybe it was wireless but I am not sure, and there was a screen that allowed them to see what was going on in the virtual reality (VR) dream worlds or whatever that you would all connect to using their equipment and they could control some things in this virtual reality dream world or normal dream world or whatever.

Basically it seemed to be a virtual reality dream sharing machine that allowed people to all connect to the same virtual reality dream world or normal dream world at the same time, and the people I was with probably brought me along so that I could help them because of some of my dream abilities and my experience from my many dreams so I was probably going to be playing a support and adviser and head of security type role maybe or just be an important asset to the team.

We sat down in the chairs and the woman and her team probably got us all set up and connected and calibrated to their equipment, which was possibly wireless but I can not remember, and she probably explained some rules and warnings before we all connected to a virtual reality dream world or normal dream world.

I am not sure if this was a virtual reality dream world created by their equipment or if we all connected to one person’s dream in our group or if this was some kind of shared dream that our combined brains/minds created with the help of the equipment, either way we were all in the same dream world, and it was a pretty bare gray dream world.

We were in a parking lot next to a sealed off building, almost like a small shopping center where you could not enter the building(s), and to the right there was a narrow and small dark alley and corner while there was probably an empty street along two other sides.

The woman and the people controlling the equipment probably sent some generic fully armored and well-armed SWAT-like/military/special forces-like to attack us for a bit of action and fun I guess for us, and so using one of my dream powers I think that I summoned some generic well-armed fully armored military/special forces-like dream security for my team and they were dressed in either a dark-gray color or black while the attacking group was either dressed in gray or black.

The attacking forces and our dream security were very basic and generic and were not very good, so they were not really a threat for us and our dream security was not very good, and this was just a warm up and to make things a bit more exciting I guess.

When I summoned our dream security I did it very quick without effort and I did not really care to make them with detail and skills or to lead them, they were just meant to be distractions mostly so that we could relax during the fighting, and I did not even summon a head of my dream security (the last was probably a tall Brienne Of Tarth-like woman with whitish-colored skin with short yellow hair who was the strong quiet loyal and dedicated soldier/bodyguard-type like my own weak version of a Fish Speaker from the Frank Herbert Dune books) so they did not fight with good skill or tactics like my average dream security does.

Things were probably going well and my team and I were probably having a bit of fun until something went wrong, I can not remember what happened exactly, but I think that it possibly all started during the fight when a male dream character with whitish-colored skin who somewhat reminded me of an android from the Alien films started to act strange and robotic like he was malfunctioning and he walked in the dark alley in the corner so I followed him and I talked with him trying to figure out what was wrong with him and maybe his eyes turned red briefly and then my dream security probably started attacking us like something went wrong and was controlling the dream characters and/or causing them to go rogue or malfunction and it all started with this one dream character.

My team and I were forced to start fighting all the dream characters, including my own dream security who I could not control now, and so we were fortunate that they were all generic and not very tough.

My team was confused and were yelling at me to control the situation, I let them know that I did not know what was happening and that I could not control it and that I had never had this happen before, and I explained how this all started while we fought all the dream characters.

I calmed my team down and let them know that we could at least defeat the dream characters and then I had to take lead of my team, but then the woman and her team removed us from the dream world.

The woman was angry and was yelling at her assistants trying to figure out what went wrong, and then she started questioning us as her and her team tried to figure out what caused the dream characters to malfunction and refuse to respond to their commands.

The woman felt that something must be unusual with one of the people on my team so she started doing some scans of us looking for anomalies/abnormalities, and she noticed some anomalies/abnormalities when she looked at my scans.

It seemed that something was unusual about me, I am not sure if it was my brain or how it functions or what it was exactly, whatever it was had the attention of the woman and she seemed very interested and like this information could help her and her corporation like this had potential to led to a scientific discovery or improvements in her research and dream sharing equipment/machine/whatever.

She clearly wanted to study the scans and do more tests on me, I did not want to be a test subject really especially for a corporation with unknown motives, and so she probably decided to distract us while she studied my scans by letting her team connect us back into the dream world and maybe she was hoping to observe me and maybe try to copy some of my memories or my entire brain without me knowing it through the dream sharing machine as well but who knows.

We returned to the same dream world in the parking lot, things were probably under control again and my dream security and the attacking forces were probably gone, and when I went to the dark alley and corner there was a clip that showed a male mixed martial artist in the UFC who was alleging that he had been in a coma for three days after trying to prepare for a fight that ended up being cancelled.

He possibly went into a coma after an accident where he was probably dehydrating himself to make weight for the fight, and it probably happened when he was taking an ice bath or something.

Him and his trainers showed an image of him from behind that they alleged was of him after the ice bath when he went into the coma, they did not provide any other proof, and so some people did not believe them and assumed that this was part of building hype for the now fail fight and trying to improve his image/reputation.

This video or scene was possibly being projected on a wall in the dark alley/corner and after this ended I walked back to the parking lot with the others, but I woke up as we talked about what had happened earlier in the dream and as we tried to decide what to do next in this dream world.

The end,

An Investigation On A Space Station

This morning I went back to sleep several times trying to get some extra sleep, I did not voice record my dreams during this time, and so that caused me to forget a lot of the interesting details from my dream or dreams last night.

My memory is so unclear now that I am not sure if this is one or more dreams, and so I will type them as separate dreams.

Getting Held Hostage Twice

I forgot all but part of one of my dreams from last night that took place on an upper floor of a windowless building it seemed, and I was there with a group of other people inside a room.

A gang and/or cartel and/or mafia and/or paramilitary and/or SWAT-like group of men burst into the room and took us hostage, they had man with them who was the leader, but I can not remember what he looked like.

Some of them had full body armor with helmets, eye protection, elbow pads, knees pads, et cetera with assault rifles.

These men seemed to be vampires in my opinion so I assume that they were faster, stronger, and maybe had some powers but I can not remember why I thought that they were vampires.

There were more of us than them but I did not think that we stood a chance against them, I have no idea what they wanted, but their hostage situation got interrupted by another man who seemed to be a vampire who entered the room.

This vampire had no weapons or armor but he easily and quickly killed the entire group holding us hostage like it was easy, he was clearly very powerful, and as we were thanking him we realized that he was now taking us hostage so now we were hostages again.

I have no idea why he was taking us hostage but it seemed that he was just doing this for fun, like a strange person who likes to take people hostage and play with them like toys making them do whatever he wants them to do, like someone playing house but with real people.

Some of the others hostages probably were considering attacking the vampire to try to defeat him so that we could escape but I felt that we did not stand a chance, I did not want anyone to die, and so I convinced them to let me try to get on his good side to hopefully get him to let us go eventually.

I focused on doing whatever he said and trying to keep him distracted as he would tell us to do various things, have us thank him a lot, have us tell him how much fun we are having, and various strange things like that.

He was pretty strange and creepy in a dangerous and relaxed kind of way, you were afraid that he could get bored or angry and kill you if you do not keep him entertained and do what he says, and so we had to keep playing nice with our hostage taker which was weird.

While doing this some of us were trying to look for opportunities to escape or ways to defeat him in case my plan failed, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

January 26, 2016 | Dream Journal

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, I remember going inside maybe a dimly lit almost shopping mall-like building, but it probably was not a mall (I know that it had some recreational areas for people to talk and sit and do various other things, food, drink, maybe some arcades, and maybe a few other things).

Inside this building I was probably sitting down somewhat depressingly when I approached by a group of people (a diverse group of men and women, and I remember that one of the women had whitish colored skin with medium-length yellowish colored hair and she somewhat reminded me of a raider from the Fallout video games; and they probably seemed like some people who were up to no good) who offered me a job to do some yard work with them for a rich family, they seemed to know that I was in need of a job, and that maybe earlier in the dream I had failed to get a certain job.

There was more that happened before this point in the dream but I can not remember what happened exactly but I possibly remember being at a multi-story building during the day with a restaurant on an upper floor that looked like or was an area where I once saw some celebrities among tourists or people in a past dream, and in that past dream I possibly had a drink with the actor John Goodman I think but I could be wrong.

I possibly applied for a job there as I was looking around for a job desperately but I probably was turned down, my job search probably failed, and then I probably went to this building after losing hope about finding a job.

I did not know any of the people who approached me except for my former male classmate DH who was oddly with this group which makes no sense and is not like him at all, I remember accepting the job, but I soon found out that they were going to rob a rich family (a husband, wife, and maybe son and daughter who had whitish colored skin with maybe the daughter and the mother having yellowish colored hair and maybe the father and the son having brownish colored hair).

Earlier in the dream during some other parts of the dream that I can not remember, I met this family somehow and I probably even went to their house and I probably got to see the inside of their house, and they had been nice to me.

Somehow this group probably knew about my failed job search and that I had seen the inside of this family’s house so they were probably targeting me specifically because they knew that I was a bit depressed about my failed job search, that I needed a job, that I was desperate, that I was currently vulnerable, that I had knowledge about the inside of the rich family’s house, and that the family would recognize me and feel more trusting of them.

I have no idea how this happened but I did something that is not like me at all, I accepted the job knowing that it was just a cover for them to rob this rich family, and so I was going to help them with this robbery and split the stolen money with them which is not like me at all.

This group of people were pretending to be contractors with their own company who mostly do yard work and house work, they even had matching uniforms and a dark-colored work van as disguises, and they had tricked the rich family into contracting them to do some yard work for them.

They went over their plan, which I can not remember, and I probably gave them the information that they needed to help them find the money and whatever else they were going to steal.

We got dressed, put our equipment in the van, and we all left in the van to the rich family’s house but when we got there I probably was afraid and having second thoughts and so I probably told them this and warned them that I might decide to not take part in the robbery.

I probably told them what they should do if this happens, that if they got caught that I did not want them mentioning my involvement, and maybe some tips on not getting caught.

We got out of the van to meet the family who greeted us warmly, they remembered me and I felt bad about what was going to happen and I felt that it was wrong and I was disappointed in myself for helping this group, and I decided to not take part in this robbery but I was not able to tell the others this because the family was around.

After the family showed us what they wanted us to do we started working, I remember having a rake and raking leaves along the right side of their fence by an alley, and this was far away from their nice house.

The others walked behind the house where I could not see them, at some point I heard an explosion, and I assumed that they were blowing open some safes inside the house.

I could not see what was going on so I walked toward the back yard near the fence for a better view, I still did not see anyone so I moved to the front where the van was parked, and the others were running to the van with probably the stolen money to escape.

I saw told my former classmate DH and the others that I wanted no part in this and that they should leave, and so they left while I continued raking leaves like nothing had happened.

This was risky but I was going to try to avoid telling the police or the family all the truth, I was going to tell them some of the truth, but avoid mentioning my involvement or that I knew that they were going to rob the family or that I knew one of the members of the group.

I saw the SWAT team and police and detectives arrive quickly, to the house, and I saw the family walking out to talk to them.

I was nervous and afraid but I tried to stay calm, I went over my plan, I tried to predict what questions I would be asked and how I should answer them, and I practiced in my mind preparing to tell the truth without lying but withholding enough information to not incriminate myself and to avoid helping them find the others.

I felt that I possibly had a chance to succeed with my plan but I probably felt bad about it, it was going to require hiding the full truth from this family who had been nice to me and they would probably even let me keep working for them, but I was afraid that they would eventually catch one or more of the others and/or find evidence that would incriminate me.

This was still not like me at all and I did not like this but I really did not want to go to prison and I was embarrassed by my actions, I was in a very terrible situation, and I thought that this was real which made it even worse.

I kept raking and watching from a distance preparing myself for an Oscar-winning performance to try to escape this situation, but I woke up.

That was not fun feeling like a villain and feeling like a liar, and helping some people rob a nice family like that.

The end,
