Ronda Rousey And Other Things

I went to bed too late last night, I kept waking up and looking at the clock and going back to sleep, and I had to wake up early for work for I did not get enough sleep and I can only barely remember part of several dreams.

Dream 1

My voice recording of this dream from last night is short and very unclear so I can not even understand what I said in the voice recording exactly 😀 , I think that I said something about getting out of water and/or being near water and something that I could not make sense of and waking up, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved the mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey and a girl with whitish-colored skin who was possibly a family member of Ronda Rousey but I have no idea, and the dream jumped around showing things from the past and present and talk of the future involving Ronda Rousey and some of her UFC fights (some of her wins and her two loses).

It was like a combination of a fight promotion, an interview, a television special, a short documentary, and several other things.

Ronda Rousey and the girl were there and shown and talked to many times, this dream jumped around a lot and there was more to this dream that I can not remember now, and this dream was longer.

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

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the night and someone else who I can not remember and I went shopping at a slightly fictional version of the shopping center by W Park, and I remember wanting to rent a film from a fictional video rental store near where Stage should be but by the time we finished shopping it was between 12:00 AM – 1:00 AM so the video rental store and several other stores that I wanted to go to were closed.

This ruined my plans of renting one or more films, maybe getting some food, and watching the film or films after returning home but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during either the evening or night, I remember seeing a city with buildings and lights and maybe a bridge and/or railroad on a bridge, and I was probably fixing and/or using some computers and multitasking.

I remember visiting some websites and maybe using some programs, I was possibly outside and/or inside with a view somewhat outside the city, and so sometimes I would look at the view as I multi-tasked while using and/or fixing one or more computers.

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

Old Video Games | A Video Rental Store-Like House | Lost At A College

Source: Wikimedia Commons

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is being inside a house that was like The E House, a former male schoolmate and one-time classmate of mine whose nickname was Jack Frost but I can not remember he real name lived there, and some of my family (my brother GC, and a few other family members) and I were there.

I remember maybe my brother GC and I following him to his room on an upper floor to play some old video games for the Super Nintendo (SNES) and Sega Genesis and maybe some other old video game consoles, and one of the video games that we played was an old Street Fighter video game.

I remember picking Ryu and I did not know the controls or moves for the game, I remember pausing to read some of the moves and controls, and I remember not knowing how to do my special attacks but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in a nice modern video rental store-like house with probably window-like walls, and my family and I seemed to be living there now.

It was a nice bright naturally lit place with a more modern minimalist maybe industrial-like style except for several shelves of VHS tapes, DVDs, maybe Blu-Rays, and various old and new video game formats.

We probably had recently moved in and we were still enjoying the new house, I remember my former male classmate DH visiting, and after he left a strange man with white skin with yellow hair arrived.

I remember him creepily telling me that he wanted to show me something, he somewhat looked like a fictional version of my former male classmate AK, but I did not recognize him at first so I paused for a moment because I was suspicious.

My mom recognized him and supposedly he was a former classmate of mine, I then remembered him or just assumed that I knew him because my mom did, and then I followed him to see what he wanted to show me.

I can not remember what he showed me but it was nothing creepy, I remember telling him how his approach was creepy and we joked and laughed about it, and then I probably gave him a tour of the house as we talked which is the same thing that I did when my former classmate DH visited earlier in the dream.

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

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day at a college that seemed to be a fictional and larger version of MS University, I think that I was walking around with my brother GC trying to find were to pay for rent and utilities, and I recognized some areas and I remember telling old memories and explaining where certain things were.

I noticed that many things had changed and were different and were added now so I did not know where to go at some point so we got lost, I remember us walking around outside and through courtyards and through buildings, and inside one building we found an area were some people were waiting to pay or sign up for something at a window so we stopped.

At some point it was our turn and we learned that this was not the place that we were looking for so we continued our journey lost, eventually we found the housing building but they told us that this was where you paid for rent only, and that you had to pay for utilities at another building.

In the dream I used to go to this college and things were different back then, utilities were included with our rent so everything was paid together at the housing building, but it seemed that things had changed in the years since I left the college so we continued our journey to now find the utilities buildings which did not exist back when I went to the college.

We were lost as I searched for familiar places but so much was different, I found a few familiar things, but some things were backward and moved around and it felt like we were walking in circles and that maybe things were changing and reversing to keep us constantly lost.

We walked around and around, at some point I was with Danielle Dallaire from Double Toasted walking near where the medical clinic and library and bridge and some of the old dorms used to be, but now there was maybe a sports practice field and some other things.

I remember Danielle saying that everything was backwards and she said something about Spain and maybe that this was Spanish (a style not the language), something confusing and strange like that, and even in the dream this made no sense and I did not know what she was talking about except for the backwards part.

I asked her to explain what this backwardness had to do with Spain and Spanish (style), she started trying to explain this, but it still was not making sense to me so I focused on the backwardness instead.

I told Danielle that it was clear that something was strange and that things were moved around and different and that maybe we were moving around constantly in circles like a mirror or something was reflecting things to trick us, the backwardness was possibly evidence of this and I possibly saw strangeness with the horizon of maybe the scenery looking like part of it was a reflection from a different angle from behind next the the angle from the front like one was a reflection, but I woke up as we were talking about the strangeness which would have possibly led to me realizing that this was a dream.

Memories Of The SC Roller Rink | Visiting The Old VA Video Rental Store

Source: Wikimedia Commons

Dream 1

Before and during and after I was getting in bed last night I started thinking about some of my memories of the SC roller rink that used to exist in the city of D when I was younger so I went between thinking, daydreaming, and then dreaming about this.

I remembered some of my memories of roller skating, the various tan-colored roller skates that you would temporarily rent (use), playing the limbo game (contest), the arcade games (including a Superman video game), the bedroom or house-like room or rooms on the left side of the hallway from the bathrooms where the owners lived and/or relaxed, the dances that I never took part in, the birthday parties (some of which allowed you to rent out the building temporarily just for your birthday), the food and drinks, the music and how you could ask for certain songs to be played, skating with some of my family and family members, my school taking a field trip there at least once, the lights and darkness, how I heard that maybe the family of my former female classmate LL owned SC, the nice clear coated hard wood floor, the side sitting areas where you could take a break and the sitting areas where you eat and drink, and more.

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

Dream 2

This dream from last night was probably inspired by this Chris Stuckmann YouTube video called Blockbuster Video – Retro Rewind from yesterday:

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in the city of D and I remember walking into the old abandoned VA video rental store building that was open and the lights were on to my surprise, and maybe my brother GC or someone else was with me but I can not remember.

Most of the shelves were still there but most were empty but some were not empty like someone had either left some things on them or someone was starting to put things back on the shelves again like they were going to open VA again or open it so that people could see what an old video rental store used to look like, but I was not sure.

There may have been an old short woman with white skin with white and gray hair who greeted us but I can not remember, and I just remember looking around thinking about old memories as I started in the children’s section where I spent most of my time as a kid when visiting VA.

This area had carpet and used to have indoor playground equipment and shelves of movies around it, parent’s would let their kids play here as they looked around, and the kids could play and pick out children movies.

I thought about many of my memories and it was nice getting to see this place again, I found an old black and white plastic action figure of a male humanoid or man in the window, and I picked it up and this reminded me of even more memories of playing with action figures.

Some of my memories of VA included looking at the various movie covers, picking movies, playing, watching my brothers play, looking at trailers and commercials on the television, the candy and drinks and snacks at the counter, the information required to rent something, movie posters, late fees, sales, the smells, renting movies and video games, the hill that you had to walk up or down when entering the building, and more.

Eventually I walked out of the children’s area to look around, I was approached and greeted by a friendly obese man with white skin with short hair who possibly wore glasses who was probably an owner or manager, and we started talking and I told how it was good to be able to see the inside of VA again and to remember old memories of how it used to be.

The man then started to show me some of the shelves that had things on them and he asked me if I had seen what I assumed to be a movie or television show that looked like an album of DVDs for whatever it was, I had not, and he grabbed it from the shelf and handed it to me.

I was not sure if he wanted me to look at it, have it, or rent it so I opened it up to see that there were only photographs in this album instead of DVDs so I was even more confused now.

Before I could ask him about this he got a phone call on his mobile phone and he walked away to talk, I heard him talking to an old woman (maybe the woman from earlier if she was there earlier), and it sounded like they were talking about business stuff to do with VA like they were possibly going to open it again or that it was open now or that they were going to open it up like a video rental store museum.

I continued looking around as a large group of people arrived like a church group bringing the kids and teenagers on a field trip to see what a video rental store used to look like, I tried to walk around looking in the less crowded areas as I waited for the man to finish his phone call, and as I was walking closer to the children’s area I heard a male voice greet me from behind so I turned around to see who it was.

To my surprise it was my former male classmate SS smiling and happy to see me, I was already in a good and reflective mood and seeing him surprised me, and I greeted him and we did a pound hug.

I felt happy and maybe a bit sad with all of these memories, seeing my former classmate SS for the first time in years and having him actually seem happy to see me like back when my friends were still around, and so I was about to cry as I was giving him a pound hug so I held the pound hug a bit longer trying to take a deep breath to stop myself from crying before releasing the pound hug.

My former classmate probably heard me trying to avoid crying so as I was going to release the pound hug he held it a bit longer to give me more time to recover, and I managed to recover without crying but I came close to crying.

After the extended pound hug I told my former classmate SS that I was surprised and happy to see him again after all these years not knowing if he was dead or alive, I asked him what he was doing here and how did he know that VA was open again, and then I realized that I think that he used to briefly work at VA one summer.

If this was true than he probably used to work for the man who greeted me earlier, I went to ask him about this as even more memories came to my mind, but I woke up as I was doing this.

The end,

Having Lunch With Grace Randolph

I woke up during the night to use the bathroom and I remembered a dream, but for some reason I did not voice record it; and I went back to sleep, and later I forgot that dream but I do barely remember part of another dream that I had after going back to sleep.

I think that most of the dream took place inside a large warehouse-like building with no windows that was mostly one large open room that had a restaurant, a cinema, a video store/a place where some of my memories were stored, an area where I played a game using the telekinesis power from the video game Saints Row IV and somehow I had this power, and there may have been more things in this large open shared room.

Carrie Mathison Working At A Video / Video Game Rental Store

I once again woke up feeling like my memory/mind had been erased so I could not remember any of my dreams even though I know that I had some dreams and I had just awakened from a dream, I went to the bathroom and I went back to sleep, and now I barely remember part of one dream that I had after going back to sleep; but the dream is very unclear and so it will not make much sense.

The beginning of the dream is the most unclear and confusing (it was clear enough in the dream but now I can not remember most of the details and so I will probably make some huge mistakes trying to explain it) but I think that part of it took place outside during the day and maybe a small battle took place between some people from an intelligence agency (probably the CIA) and/or the military and/or I against one or more people who might have been part of a group who had some unique abilities/powers/skills/whatever, I either helped and/or worked for an intelligence agency it seemed, and the battle might have been over some intelligence/some objects but I am not sure.
