I watched a free online short film (20 minutes long) before going to sleep called The Brain Hack which was interesting and pretty good quality for a short film like this (at the very end of the film you might want to look away to avoid having a possible seizure):

Dream 1

I can not remember most of my dreams from last night partly because my last dream was so long, all that I can remember of this dream is that it was possibly inspired by the films The Brain Hack and / or Iron Sky (which I watched last night), and all that I can remember is that it possibly involved several things including numbers and something important and maybe someone was after me/trying to stop me; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream was very long so I can not remember a lot of it but it covered various topics like school/college, soccer / football, politics, relationships, maybe jobs, film making/creativity, et cetera and I did not voice record it and someone is talking to me as I try to type this so part of my memory of it will probably be destroyed before I can finish typing because of the distractions; and I think that most of it probably took place in a fictional version of the city of D starting during the day until the night and maybe across more than one day.

The first part of the dream possibly took place inside a Walmart-like store or Walmart during the day where I was shopping and it possibly involved jobs and other things, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

The second part of the dream involved school/college with me being outside in maybe a field-like area with former classmates/schoolmates of mine and others during maybe the evening until the night, people were hanging out, and I remember talking to some of my former classmates like my former male classmates SS and DC; and they wanted to go to one or two clubs, but I declined so they left without me but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

Soccer/football was possibly part of most of the dream possibly even the two parts of the dream above this but I can not remember the details, in the third part of the dream it was probably another day during the evening or night in a windowless building that almost felt partly underground (maybe it was), and there was a formal dinner party/maybe fundraiser/whatever or something taking place and I was there with various other people and it seemed to be about politics and maybe partly about some people trying to start soccer/football teams.

Either The Vice President Of The United States Joe Biden was there or a generic male Vice President of no country in particular was there walking around talking about politics and himself as a woman and others followed him around acting so impressed, and he was so full of himself/over-confident/self-important and only interested in politics/things to help himself, his administration, his political party, those who supported him (the rich), the status quo/things as they are/the current system, et cetera; and it was annoying watching/listening to him walk around with his followers talking non-stop about politics and himself, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

The fourth part of the dream probably involved others and I actually playing soccer/football during the day on the next day in a fictional version of the D High School Field/Stadium or the field near it, I think that possibly some high school and/or college and/or other types of soccer/football teams were trying to form/start and recruit players/coaches/sponsors/et cetera, and I was playing with/helping them.

Some of my former schoolmates were possibly there like my former male schoolmate and former soccer/football teammate CC, I remember them wanting me to start playing soccer again, but it has been years since I have played soccer so I was not sure; and if I would not play they wanted me to at least help coach/train/start a team, but I was not sure about that either but I did think that both ideas were interesting but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

The fifth part of the dream involved people having a good time after playing soccer and various topics/things came up that I can not remember other than talking to one man with whitish colored skin with medium-length curly dark-brownish colored hair who somewhat reminded me of one of the characters from the film The Brain Hack combined with another actor or one of my former male classmates, and he was talking about filmmaking and creativity.

The man said that he would sometimes instantly get entire film ideas from sudden inspiration from random things, and he gave some examples; and he seemed very excited/interested in filmmaking and creativity and inspiration et cetera, and he wanted to make a film soon but he was waiting for the idea to come to him.

When it was time to start leaving because it was evening or night I remember meeting a woman with whitish colored skin with short-medium length maybe reddish-brownish colored hair, and we both instantly seemed interested in each other; and I remember us walking and talking together toward the parking lot where our automobiles were and I had my left arm across her shoulder as we walked.

Once we got close to our or my automobile the man who I had talked to earlier saw a ball that someone kicked past him or something like that, and he got an entire film idea instantly just from seeing that ball kicked past him; and so he had one of his moments of instant creativity/inspiration, and he ran to us in excitement probably jumping around smiling and laughing and shaking/hugging us.

He was very excited and he explained the instant film idea that came to him in that moment of instant creativity/inspiration when the ball was kicked past him, and it was amazing how all of those ideas for an entire film suddenly came to him like that; but that is all that I can remember and I woke up.

There is possibly more that I will remember of this dream later once I have time to think without distractions, but I would be wrong.

I do remember part of two other dreams that I had this week that seemed so real that I almost thought that they were real memories at first, the first dream took place outside during the day and my automobile or one of my parent’s automobiles had one or more tires stuck in the ground leaning on one or more broken bricks or concrete blocks, and so I tried to get the automobile unstuck while trying to avoid having the tire or tires busted by the broken bricks or concrete blocks; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The second dream involved me looking at my mobile phone inside a house wondering if my mobile phone was somehow using data because the data symbol possibly indicated that it was using data, I do not have a data plan, and so I was confused by this and trying to figure out what was going on and how was this possible; and I hoped that I would not have to pay for accidentally using data, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,
