Trying To Escape

I had several dreams but I forgot all but part of one dream, since I did not record my dreams when I first woke up before going back to sleep again, and this dream took place during the day in a fictional area with a building near a field that was near a wooded area.

I can not remember most of the details of this dream but some people and I seemed to be hostages, the hostage takers or whoever let us do various things in & around the building, but they had rules that we had to follow; and at some point I escaped across the field, and I hid on top of a small building at the entrance of a trail that led into the wooded area.

I remember trying to decide the best approach to escape without the hostage-takers/whoever from finding me, I decided to hide on the roof hoping that they would pass me to look in the wooded area for me, and then I would probably escape when they gave up & went back to the building; I was also worried about the other people I left, but I forgot most of the dream, and I woke up.

A Project Housing Apartment? | An Ides Of March Inspired Dream | A Private School / College

Dream 1

I barely remember part of three dreams from last night, with the first dream taking place during the day, and I think that I had just started moving in to a fictional project housing apartment in a LC/Eastside-like area; I can not remember the beginning of the dream but I think that I drove to the apartment to unpack a few things.

The entrance/exit door was on the left middle side of the apartment & the parking lot was on the front side of the apartment, with a large window on the back side maybe where the only bedroom was, with a large window on the front side where the living room/dining room/kitchen was, just a wall on the right side, a bathroom on the left side next to the only bedroom, and maybe a laundry room on the right side of the bedroom.

I put a few things in the closet of the bedroom and looking out of the window on the back side of the house I saw the two houses across the street from my grandfather’s house, oddly, and out the window on the front side of the house I could see a multi-story project housing-looking apartment building that looked like it was in LC; and sitting on one of the balconies of that building I saw a woman whose body was obese with dark brownish colored skin with black colored hair sitting down while her daughter played.

The weather was gray outside and the weather was slowly getting worse, someone knocked on my door, and it was my former classmate JC; and he said that someone told him that I had just moved to LC, and so he came to visit me since he was also living in LC I think.

Unlike some of my most recent dreams with JC, things were more positive more like old times, and we talked about this & that; and at some point he showed me a new gun that he got, a .223 / 5.56mm rifle, and he said that he no longer had his .22 rifle.

He said that he had no ammunition for it and so we looked through the ammunition that I had in the bedroom oddly (even though I do not remember having a gun), but the ammunition that I had would not work for his rifle; I can not remember the exact types of ammunition that I had, but .308 was probably one of them.

The weather outside got bad with the wind blowing and it was raining, I remember closing the front window curtain since it was dark enough outside for people to see inside, and I opened the window a bit to feel the wind; and this part of the dream was very realistic, no wonder I did not realize that I was dreaming, because I could feel the wind & the temperature of the wind which was a cool temperature & I could see the wind blowing the curtains & the curtains moved realistically & I could hear the wind blowing & I could probably feel the moisture in the wind from the rain.

Anyway, JC probably left at some point, and that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The second dream was inspired by the film The Ides Of March, which I watched last night, and the character Molly Stearns was in the dream; but that is all that I can remember unfortunately.

Dream 3

My third dream took place at a fictional private school/college that had a upper class & good reputation & look to the entrance/main building, but it was a low-priced school that almost anyone could afford to attend & most of the other parts of the school had a lower class look to them; and the school had a lot of building in a straight-line with some connected and some separated and/or connected by catwalks or you had to walk to the front of the building(s).

Some of the upper-class students wore special school uniforms and spent most of their time in the main building, but most people spent most of their time in the lower-class looking buildings like the schools that I grew up in.

This was a long dream with many parts that showed flashbacks from false memories and/or past dreams, I experienced/participated in some of these parts, and at some point time moved forward to the current time; and so I had already spent several years or semesters at this school.

We got signed up/started the new year/semester, the students & parents explored the main building during orientation & I briefly explored as well to see this nice looking building, and then I went to class/several classes.

I can not remember most of the dream since there were so many parts/details, but I do remember being in a classroom where I was one of the oldest/veteran students & the teacher probably left me in charge while the teacher went somewhere for a moment; and a lot of my former classmates went to this school/college, and so I talked with & went to class with many people I knew during the entire dream.

There was a lot that happened in this dream, many conversations & classes, breaks, going to the cafeteria, and I remember going outside several times during the day & it was nice outside; but that is all that I can remember.

Celebrating At A Restaurant


I barely remember part of one dream and one semi-dream/semi-daydream, I remember my cousin DE being in a dream and/or being mentioned at some point, but I can not remember where.

I remember being in a restaurant that was like a combination/fusion of a lower class (in food/drink portions), middle class (in price), and upper class (in style/variety/types of food/drinks) restaurant; and it was a somewhat large one story building that felt comfortable/safe like maybe the workers were my undercover dream security or something like that, and I sat at a table near the windows on the left side of the building.


A Shooting In A Walmart-Like Store

I remember part of one dream fragment from last night that started in D during the day near my aunt JE’s house, and I was walking over there for some unknown reason to do something that I forgot; but I can not remember this part of the dream, I just remember talking with an indirect family member and/or direct family member and a neighbor of my aunt JE.

My uncle WC saw us talking and he walked over to join us and my dad walked over to join us as well, and we all talked but I forgot what we talked about exactly; but I do remember someone mentioning an Easy (Something) all-in-one suit set/kit, that a Walmart-like store sold that included various low-priced sets of an entire suit including dress pants, dress shirt, suit/jacket, tie, et cetera.

I wanted to get at least one suit set that fit me/went with how I looked/et cetera, I hoped for a suit that finally was the right size & the right look to go with how I look, compared to the few times in the past where I wore a suits that were too big and did not look right on me; and so I drove off to this Walmart-like store to look at their Easy (Something) suit sets.

I am not sure if this Walmart-like store was in D or not, the area leading to it looked somewhat like the road by the train tracks by the A Plant that leads to the highway across from Eastside, but the area where the store was located looked like another city and the roads & homes near it were fictional.

I parked in a small single row parking area near a road near the back/side of the store (the store had at least two floors and the clothing section was on the second floor or another upper floor), where maybe the workers parked, and no one was around this area since the entrance was on the front side of the building; and then I walked around to the front of the building, and I went inside the store.

The entire store was being re-modeled/re-organized by the workers, who looked like they had worked over-time trying to get it ready & so they were busy & most of them did not look happy, and so some parts of the store had missing areas & there were boxes/et cetera around the store as workers worked on the re-modeling/re-organizing as their managers gave orders & answered questions that they had since most of them seemed confused like this re-modeling/re-organizing had caught them by surprise.

The clothing area was missing its workers as they worked in other areas and it was missing some of its clothing, so I had no one to ask for help at first, and so I kept looking around for the Easy (Something) suit sets; and I could not find them and so I walked to an area where a manager was instructing workers near an area with short wooden bookshelf-like rows that reminded me of the library from P Elementary, to ask for help.

Everyone was so busy and so I waited for them to finish talking, I listened as the workers and the manager(s) complained about the re-modeling/re-organizing and how it was unnecessary in their opinions, and it seemed that the Walmart-like company was trying to go with a more middle class – upper class appearance & products; like they wanted to be taken more seriously, seem less dependent on cheap products made in China, and attract more people from the middle class and upper class.

A former schoolmate of mine named TM (S), brother of DM, was one of the workers and he saw me & greeted me; but he seemed disappointed & a bit angry with me, like maybe in the past he had given me his contact information & I had never contacted him, and so he felt like I did not want to be friends with him & had abandoned him or something like that it seemed.

He gave some hints that made it seem that my prediction was correct, and he seemed to have mostly forgiven me but he was going to be a bit cold/distant/angry still toward me; and he might have even told me that he mostly had forgiven me & tried to leave it in the past, but that it still angered him a bit, and I probably apologized to him.

I asked him how his brother DM was doing but he gave me a negative response or non-response, and he probably thought that I did not really care about how his brother DM was doing; but then his manager called him and the other workers to walk over for a meeting.

Not far from me the manager congratulated them for their hard work and maybe for completing or mostly completing the re-modeling/re-organizing (even though it did not look done or close to done in my opinion), and they started to talk/complain about it; but as they were talking I noticed two women with medium-dark brownish colored skin with black colored hair walking from the right side of the store toward the manager & the workers with negative-neutral cold facial expressions that I could not read (like one a killer might make).

I thought that they were probably workers or ex-workers or customers who were angry about something, I was on the right side of the room & the managers and the workers were in the center of the room, and as the two women got closer they both pulled out two large black colored pistols & aimed them in the direction of the manager (I probably yelled for everyone to get down); and they started firing their pistols, which shocked the rest of us in the room, and I expected they were there to kill the manager but they started shooting at everyone (I probably yelled for everyone to run).

This felt so real and scary, a huge panic started with people screaming/running/stopping in shock, as the blasts/gunshots loudly echoed through the store as the two women fired rapidly like they had infinite ammunition/magazines or something, and I ran for my life toward the direction they came from; and so I had to pass by them from the right side of the room, but fortunately they were shooting at the center of the room at the time so I got lucky.

It felt so real & I was scared & running in a panic for my life not even trying to save anyone or try to stop the two women as I looked for a window (they both had two guns shooting rapidly and so I felt that they would easily kill me if I tried to stop them), I found a small window that I could barely fit through and I saw a little girl behind me with blond colored hair with whitish colored skin, and I told her to follow me/do not stop/keep moving; and behind her I saw a man with blondish colored hair with whitish colored skin who I assumed was her father, and a few other people probably followed us.

Once I saw that the little girl made it through the window too, I kept going telling them all to follow me/do not stop/keep moving, we were in another part of the store now; and I found a bigger window, and we climbed through it.

This led to another part of the store and we found one or two more windows before we finally reached the outside, well I reached the outside first near where I parked my automobile, and I ran to it for my life; and I drove off for my life, so I did not get to see the others make it outside.

I drove up the road(s) until I reached the area near the train tracks by the A Plant, I had my headlights on so it must have been early morning or something, and three old women were in the road raking leaves or something; and so I had to stop until they moved out-of-the-way, but then I saw some police coming up the road with some of the customers who escaped & so I parked my automobile to see what was going on.

Two police officers who looked afraid wearing police hats, one with whitish colored skin and one with dark brownish colored skin, asked me if I was one of the shooters; and I said no and I described that the two shooters were women, and I described their appearance.

They saw a fictional warehouse-like building near us and they noticed that the door appeared to have been messed with, so they felt that maybe the shooters were hiding in there, and they told me that one or both of the shooters worked or used to work for a company that put doors on warehouse-like buildings; and so they could have easily gotten inside.

They got their pistols out but they were afraid to enter the warehouse-like building and so they paused to try to get courage or wait for backup, and as they were doing that one of the customers who escaped with dark brownish colored skin approached me like he was one of the people who followed me to escape; and he showed me that he had a pistol in his pocket and he was going to help the two police officers, and so I asked him to come inside my automobile to talk quickly.

Inside my automobile I showed him that I had a pistol in there and I got it ready, I put it in my pocket, and then we talked about whether it was a good idea to tell the police officers that we had guns & that we would help them; I worried that they might think we were the shooters, and arrest us or something.

We both decided that the two shooters/women needed to be stopped, and so we got out of my automobile to go help the two police officers; but the dream jumped in time, and I was on my way to a house to meet a woman who I guess was my girlfriend.

She looked like PS CL and she probably was 10 years older than me, as I was driving to the house, I remember thinking about various ways we would/could have sex; and I thought about some of the times in the past where we had sex, and so we clearly had a sexual relationship & it seemed that we had sex a lot and I was looking forward to having sex with her as soon as I arrived to the house.

In my mind I tried to think of the various sex positions we would try today, vividly like it was actually happening, and then I arrived at the house; and she was waiting on a bed for me, and I told her that we failed to find the two shooters/women and that they were still on the loose unfortunately.

I gave her a kiss and went to snuggle with her or something but she pushed me away, she seemed suspicious toward me, and she started asking me questions about the shooting; and then she told me that she thought that I was the shooter, and so she did not trust me & she refused to have sex with me.

I was shocked/confused about why she would think that and how could she not trust me like that, I tried to explain that during the shooting that I was afraid & could have died & that I helped a few people find a way to escape, and that I even tried to help the police; but she still did not believe me, and it seemed that she was going to investigate me until she found enough evidence to turn me into the police.

She got off the bed and walked off since she did not trust me anymore and thought that I was a murderer, I sat there confused/shocked, and I woke up.

School Dance Videos | A Reality TV Show Lunch

Dream 1

I remember part of two dreams from last night, with the first dream taking place in D where B Park should be during a cloudy/gray afternoon, and I was there with former classmates of mine; and it seemed that we were in this park as part of a class, like we were in 12th grade again & the school year was almost over or something like that.

Most people were divided around the park by social class as usual, with the lower-class area being more diverse with some people from the middle class & upper class being there along with the lower-class, but most of my upper-class classmates kept to themselves as usual while about half or less of the middle-class kept to themselves; and I walked around talking with people from all areas, but I spent most of my time in the lower-class area which was more diverse as usual.

In the lower-class area there were mostly people from Eastside like J, LT, DH, et cetera who were playing sports, and I joined them at some point playing basketball & maybe a few other sports; and at some point we took a break and J and/or several people started to show us some videos on a mobile phone which was a Kyocera Brio (which only comes in a dark gray color).

I am not sure who the mobile phone was for exactly, my guess was J but I am not sure, and on the mobile phone were video clips from one or several school dances/parties which were taken illegally since recording videos at school dances/parties was not allowed & no one else knew they were being filmed; and on the videos were mostly upper-class students who made up most of the people at the dances/parties.

The videos were nothing extreme, just mostly our upper-class classmates partying/dancing/drinking/talking/having a good time, and trying to find ways to have fun in the boring town of D; and some of the people in the videos were WT, JT, BS, and et cetera.

Somehow the mobile phone got left with me and the others walked off & left somewhere, they were going to come back but I did not know who the mobile phone was for, and so I decided that maybe some of my upper-class classmates might want to see the videos too since most of them were in the videos; and I thought they would enjoy seeing those videos.

I walked over to their group and I started talking with them, and at some point I showed them the videos; but WT and maybe a few of them were not happy with the videos, and they wanted to show them to a teacher & try to find who the mobile phone belonged to so that they could get in trouble.

I was surprised by this reaction and I felt bad for showing it to them, and I was somewhat afraid of getting the person who owned the mobile phone in trouble by accident but fortunately I did not know who it belonged to; and so WT took the mobile phone, and went to show the videos to a teacher but the videos would not play & they did not show up on the mobile phone like they had been deleted or something.

I was a bit happy about this but also confused about what happened to the videos, I wondered if my hopes/wishes had somehow caused the mobile phone to malfunction or something, and an angry/disappointed WT was left with no evidence & so he gave me the mobile phone back & they walked off.

At some point J and the others returned and I told them what had happened, and I gave them the mobile phone warning them not to illegally film videos again and that they might want to destroy any evidence if there is any left on the mobile phone; and I remember them or I opening the back of the phone and the two memory cards were still there & so I still wondered what had happened to the videos earlier when they had failed to show up, and then I walked off & woke up.

Dream 2

The next dream took place during the day in a fictional area and it started by talking about a single mother with short blondish colored hair with whitish colored skin with a teenaged daughter with medium-long blondish colored hair with whitish colored skin & a young son with dark blondish & brownish colored hair with whitish colored skin who had a reality TV show, and I was seeing things from the outside of their house hearing/seeing information about their show as my vision/I moved closer to their house which was a one floor brick house.

And then I somehow went through a window to a bedroom where the mother was complaining about a family problem, so now I was in the room too, and I assumed that the cameras were recording an episode of their reality television show even though I saw no cameras or crew members.

The mother told me that her daughter had an older friend or boyfriend who was interested in & had some tattoos and liked rock music, and her daughter & young son now both were interested in tattoos & rock music; and I think that he daughter had gotten a tattoo without permission, and she also started to act different due to the influence of her older friend or boyfriend and the mother did not like him or the changes in her kids.

The mother felt that her daughter was being distant from her and her young son was being effected/affected as well, and so she wanted her daughter to end her relationship with her older friend or boyfriend.

The mother told me that she wanted her daughter to start listening to other types of music like classical music, and she pulled out The Sound Of Music soundtrack which was probably an old LP record; and she wanted her daughter to listen to it with her, and maybe sing some songs with her.

Her daughter and son came into the room and the mother mentioned this to her, and she started playing the soundtrack; but the daughter & son did not seem interested, and they would not sing along & I might have tried to sing a bit to encourage them but it did not work. 😀

The mother stopped the music and started telling her daughter & son about some of the things that she had told me, but the daughter argued with her/refused and walked off; and the son said that their moms music was boring, that he liked rock music, and that he liked tattoos & wanted a tattoo one day & that he liked other cool things instead of boring kiddy stuff.

The mother did not know what to do, the older friend or boyfriend of the daughter came over, and we briefly greeted him; but he acted annoying/untrustworthy and tried to act all cool/cold/quiet/dark/fake like a greaser joined/combined with a hipster/emo/gothic-like stereotype, and I did not like him from those first impressions.

I came up with an idea to make food and invite her family, the older friend or boyfriend of the daughter, and the crew of the reality TV show to eat lunch together; and that would be a chance for everyone to communicate/spend time together/and maybe some compromise/improvements could be made.

The mother thought that was a great idea and so we decided to do that, I did most or all the cooking and I made the plates, and she invited everyone; and I made sweet corn, beans & rice, a main dish which I forgot what it was, and maybe some cornbread or something with water or some juice or tea to drink.

After I made the food and made the plates, I went to start taking the plates to everyone & I sat my plate somewhere in the kitchen I think, and I walked into a dimly lit very large room that was their dining room but it looked like a large empty gym-like room with a tall ceiling that had reddish & orangish adobe-like floor tiles & was uneven in some areas; and I stepped in a puddle of water that was oddly in the room, it was much deeper than I expected & it covered my shoes/feet making my shoes & feet wet & soggy (which I hate), and I said that out-loud & some of the reality TV show crew heard me.

The reality TV show crew had about one camera man, a sound guy, a male director(?), and a woman who was high-level person with the TV company; and brought them their plates, and when I was walking back to the kitchen I slipped on the wet floor & fell and I got my red & black B windbreaker jacket a bit wet but it is a bit water-resistant so it did not matter that much.

I am not sure if there were tables in the large empty/dimly lit gym-like dining room, everyone might have sat on the floor but I can not remember, I just remember giving everyone their plates and the older friend or boyfriend of the daughter was being annoying/ungrateful & he annoyed me again; and I could not find my plate, and so I walked around asking people if they had seen my plate but no one had, and I suspected that the older friend or boyfriend of the daughter might have done something with my plate from how he acted when I briefly talked with him again in the large dining room.

I walked into the kitchen to look for my plate again, I forgot to mention that earlier I got a few compliments on the food that I had cooked to my surprise, but I woke up.

The end,
