      A couple of weeks ago, I overheard part of a conversation. I don't know what it was about, but at one point the guy said "some people need a 'wake up to reality check'". That made me a bit suspicious.

      As I type this, I'm sitting in an airport waiting for a plane. I often dream about being in an airport, and have been careful to do reality checks while I'm here. I was sitting here watching something on the TV screen in front of me about a guy who had a dream that predicted a health issue. It didn't even occur to me to do a reality check for a few moments. In an airport, watching something about dreaming...sounds like a dream. But it's apparently not?

      So weird. When I arrived at work this morning, a good song was playing on the radio and I had to turn it off before going in. When I got back out this afternoon, the same song was on! And it's not a song played too frequently. It was nice to finish it.

      Lots of reality check moments this week!

      I was at a biology conference. When I went to my hotel room and flipped the light switch, nothing happened. Dream sign right there.

      Another day, I listened to a talk where the speaker used the phrase "reality check", and later another speaker was presenting a weird behavior he noticed in his research worms, and said that he asked himself if he was dreaming.

      Then there was an experience of getting into a hotel elevator and it not behaving as expected - seeming to move on its own and not as directed. At one point I was stuck in the elevator (turns out you needed a key card to activate the elevator, and I was just riding along as it was being called by guests, lol).

      I had a weird sort of synchronicity happen this past week, after which I immediately did a reality check (well, a few):

      I was in the car with my partner on the way to a job and I was saying something about Dreamviews or someone from the forum. Just then, a truck goes past saying "ADA" in large white letters on the side, which made me think of "all-day-awareness" because of some recent posts here, and at the same time, because of the conversation, my partner gave me a sort of joking prod/tap while remarking something like "Are you still waking up?"

      That's a lot of unrelated probabilities lining up for a single moment...

      Playing Wordle on my phone (not the official Wordle, just a knock off)... the word was "Lucid".

      At the airport, leaving Georgia, there was a random peach pit in the terminal on the way to the plane.

      I did an RC When I was in Walmart and there was something wrong with the music. It was like listening to the slowed-down version of the songs with this high pitch-squealing sound. Except for the song, "King Of Wishful Thinking". That sounded clearer.

      Did an RC when I saw a black wooly bear. It was in my garage. It was crawling on the ground and at first, I thought it was some shadow in the corner of my eye until it started to move. Had to seriously think about critical awareness—not simply assume that I am awake.

      I try to continually remind myself that "any conscious experience could be taking place in the dream state," and supposedly something like 11% of all conscious experiences *are* in the dream state, so there's always a good chance that you may be dreaming! I've had at least one LD attributed to this thought occurring in a dream.

      Yeah, and the emotional state that you're in to bring yourself to the PR.

      I was watching a TV show this evening, and someone made some suggestion that another character thought was unfeasible. Character two therefore responded with "reality check" before making her objection. So I paused the show and did a reality check or two.

      Seeing this and it made me do a reality test...
      It's not a UFO. It looks more like a portal, or an eye to me. Reality Test... Are we really awake right now? mammatus clouds.
