Last night I remember part of several of my dreams, one dream took place at my parent’s house, and I found my little cousin JE in the house; he had sneaked from my grandfather’s house to my parent’s house without permission.
I told him that he was not supposed to do that and I sent him back to my grandfather’s house, and then I went to use the bathroom; after using the bathroom I started to wash my hands, but then my cousin JE jumped into the bathroom.
I was annoyed and I told him that fortunately I had just finished using the bathroom before he jumped in & once again I told him that he was not supposed to sneak around without permission inside of people’s houses; he was acting like it was a game, he is just a little kid, so I tried to explain the situation in a way that he could understand while I walked him back to my grandfather’s house myself.
The next dream that I remember took place at a college, one that looks different from most of the colleges in my dreams, and I think that the beginning of the dream took place in one or more classrooms.
I think that the semester was nearing an end and we had a project, but I could be wrong, I forgot what class it was; I either had not finished my project and/or I had missed a lot of classes or something, and I might have been a bit worried about failing the semester.
I think that I had an A or a B so far, those were guesses even in the dream, and if I did badly on the project I hoped to at least get a C as my final grade; I remember being at my grandfather’s house in his kitchen thinking about this at some point after leaving the class.
I think that I turned in my project the next day to my teacher who was a woman with whitish colored skin & blond colored hair, who was a bit mean, and then I went to an underground-like gym at the college.
It seemed to be underground since there were no windows and it felt like we were underground, there was a variety of exercise equipment, and I was looking for an elliptical trainer/elliptical machine; so that I could test one to see if I could use it as an alternative to jogging, since jogging is hard on my body, so I can not jog as much as I would like.
There were mostly women exercising, as I looked around for an elliptical trainer/machine; and at some point I asked one of the workers at the gym, who was the actor Justin Long, if they had an elliptical trainer/machine.
I described the machine to him and he showed me a machine that he thought was an elliptical trainer/machine, and so I started to use it; and it seemed to have some resistance which I could feel, so it seemed that I would get a good workout if I used it long enough.
After a short workout I left the gym but I can not remember what happened next except that above ground outside, I saw a lot of soldiers gathering, and I was a soldier.
This dream was one of my rare dreams that I have sometimes that involves some historical & other information from older wars like the World Wars, sometimes with real & fictional parts, and sometimes I am seeing or experiencing this about several countries, but this time it was about The United States (or a fictional USA) it seemed but I do not think that any country was ever mentioned.
Instead of seeing scenes from wars & battles with historical & other information being shown or narrated, I was experiencing this myself, which happens sometimes but this one was all about the experience.
We were gathering on flat land near a school maybe, we seemed to have older olive drab-colored uniforms without armor other than a helmet, and we were gathering to get orders from a general; this seemed to be an emergency gathering where they quickly rounded up a bunch of new recruits/drafted soldiers, I was one of them.
The general, at least I am guessing that he was a general, said that many of us were to be sent on a secret mission where we would be dropped behind enemy lines into the ocean/sea, we would have to make our way to land, and then travel to an enemy position to steal something; and then return it to our side.
It was a very dangerous mission, a suicide mission, and I think that he was using only new soldiers who had just finished basic training or who had not even finished basic training; I guess that the situation was serious and he did not want to lose any experienced men (I only remember seeing male soldiers at this point), I guess us newer soldiers were not worth much or anything to them.
We did not have a choice, who ever was picked had to do the mission, and then the general or officer sent us to an airplane to leave for the mission immediately; I was pretty numb about the situation, I was not afraid to die, I did not want to be in the war but I was chosen & I decided to go along with the war for a reason or reasons that I can not remember, I wanted to finish the mission hoping that it would help bring an end to the war, I just wanted the war to end, and probably possible future wars too.
On our way to the airplane, some of the soldiers were scared and/or crying and/or sad, but I was numb & focused; and an old military veteran who was watching us gather came to give us some encouragement, and he started to talk with me.
He told me a bit about his experiences in war and he asked me if this was my first war, I said yes, and I told him that I just wanted the war to end & I was tired of these unnecessary wars & I wish that I could stop them or something like that.
He told me that even though war is bad that it has its purpose(s), that it had its place in life & that there was nothing wrong with me wanting the war to end, but that war a necessary evil in life or something like that; and that it should not be completely eliminated and/or that it can not be completely eliminated.
I told him my reason or reasons that I participated in this war, normally I probably would have refused & accepted jail/death/banishment, but I can not remember what I told him; I remember him telling me that he had learned some good things from war too, that it was not all bad, and that though he experienced many bad things in war, that he was better because of it.
Though we did not completely agree, I thanked him for talking with me & encouraging the others, and then the other soldiers & I connected one large parachute that was stronger than a normal parachute, to ourselves; so we were all connected to one parachute.
The military veteran wished us well and then the rest of us left in the airplane, once we reached enemy territory, we parachuted with our joint parachute into the ocean/sea; we were on now on our own, and we were a long way away from land.
It was going to take a few days to reach land I think, so we would have to swim & float for a few days, many of us died during the journey; some drowned, some were attacked by sharks & other animals, some got sick, some died of dehydration, and the enemy fired artillery on us when we first hit the water.
I forgot to mention that, when we hit the water, artillery was fired around our location; it was pretty realistic, and some of us died.
Days later the rest of the survivors and I reached a river, we followed that to avoid detection until we got close enough to the enemy position, but more people died of snake bites & other things during this part too; it was a long & depressing trip, but I was still numb & focused on completing the mission.
Many men died, so only a few of us were left, and I seemed to be in charge now due to my numbness & focus; it was truly a suicide mission now it seemed, since we barely had enough men left, but that allowed us to sneak around better.
We reached land at some point in our trip that took days, we came across some kind of animal(s), but I can not remember what happened exactly but I think that a few more of us were killed; and then we found the enemy position, and we sneaked into their camp to steal whatever we were sent to steal, I can not remember what it was, it was several things actually.
Inside of one of their buildings we found most of what we were to steal and some women, who were not soldiers, helped us find the rest, and they led us/me to an upper floor; I think that I sent the others with the rest of the stuff that we stole, to wait for me away from the camp, and I went with the women to steal the last item or items.
I am not sure who the women were or why they were helping us, but they led me to an all female area on an upper floor, where there was a bathroom with showers/dressing rooms/& various other things; and they were hiding me there away from the women in charge of this area & other women who would turn us in if they knew what was going on.
I am not sure if I had the last item or items or not, but I remember that the women & I were trying to move to another location; but we had to avoid several other women & at some point one of the women in charge came to check on things, and I barely avoided being seen.
We were trapped on the upper floor at this point, hoping for an opening to escape, but I woke up as we waited.
