    1. #257 - Almost missed a bus

      by , 07-19-2016 at 10:28 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      I remember it being day time, I was waiting for a bus or something outside near the main road. The area I was in isn't nearby and isn't the usual place I go to. I think there was a crowd of people in my way and I tried to wave the bus over and it pulled up, but it was quite far away... I had to run down the road to meet it. There's a lot more to this dream, but when I woke up I realized that I was really late for work and I had missed my ride in. So the morning was a scramble and I didn't get time to memorize the dream.
    2. #231 - Bus driver

      by , 04-15-2016 at 11:52 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      I recall the dream starting in a house near where I live, there's family around (though no one I recognize, it's like a made up family). I decide to head off and I drive to another house, it's quite big and is painted white. After walking inside I come out, noticing that the other family members have arrived, one is a white girl (sister maybe?), another is an asian girl (sisters friend), then there's Saya who is the child of the family (around 3, she resembles honey boo boo). I think there's also a parent or two. I'm outside the house and I see my friends Dad, Ben, driving towards us with another person in the car beside him. He does a U-turn and snatches the coffee and muffin from someone in our family and then drives off. I laugh at this, those 2 have always been snatching stuff from each other, sort of resembling a Homer Simpson + Ned Flander relationship. I'm eating some kind of cooked chicken meat now, I think there was a mini buffet that was nearby. After this we all hop onto a yellow bus and drive on up the hill. While we're driving I spot Ben (who snatched the muffin and coffee) parked up by a house, he has a job interview. That's good, since he's been on the doll for like 20 years. I see Saya sitting at the front with an iPad or something, she's smashing it against the metal bar between her and the driver. It's so annoying... The driver has a 'fuck it' moment and just gets up and walks to the back of the bus to sit down. Oh my god! Really? Saya then goes and sits in the drivers seat and is semi driving while still smashing the iPad. I swallow the food in my mouth and put the rest of the chicken I was eating on the seat (it has packaging so it won't get any germs ). I head to the front, why the hell is no one panicking?!?! The sound of smashing is continuously repeating, but Saya isn't smashing the iPad anymore. I noticed that it's because she recorded the sound when she was doing it, so it's just the sound playing from the iPad. Wow, she must be pretty smart for her age. I get shitty at everyone because they don't want to discipline Saya, she needs to be told off so I decide that I'll do it, I start telling her off firmly without being angry or anything, letting her know why she can't do what she did and that she should apologize. While I do this, my ex gf smiles at me and sits on the drivers seat and takes over. Phew, we'll be safe for now. I then walked to the back of the bus and pick up my food, taking a bite out of it. The asian girl stands up and speaks to me rudely, saying "So now you're going to eat your food? You're so tense and angry, like you're so annoying". WHAT. THE. ****. I just saved your life and you say that? You couldn't stand up to a 3 year old! I'm a little bit furious, my mouth is full of food so I can't even talk back. In the end I just roll my eyes, sigh, then turn around and sit further away from her.
    3. #215 - Hunted by a friend?

      by , 03-22-2016 at 08:02 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      It was day time on a school trip, there was a group of us and something about a killer on the loose. He was apparently after us and more specifically, me. We were on a bus at one point and I remember seeing other kids on another bus, they were in the same group or something as the killer and are his accomplices. Wait, so the killer is a kid?
      I'm in a building now, it's the hotel or whatever that the class is staying at. I'm sitting at a desk and I'm Malcolm from Malcolm in the Middle. I had earned money from doing something (I think selling notes for class) and bought a gun for self protection. It's night time here and the gun is in front of me on the desk under the light of a small lamp, then the killer shows up. I can't remember how but I shot at the killer which was lucky because he had a gun too. But it's surprising because the killer is actually Aaron, a childhood best friend. I remember getting a scolding from the teacher (I mean after all, I'm like 10 in this dream and I have a gun..), later on I end up with my gun again but this time there's modifications. Oh sweet modern technology for being so damn cool. This part was really vivid and awesome, I added heaps of attachments to the gun I had, turning it into a full on rifle. There's a firing range which I shoot at twice, jesus that's powerful. I fiddle around with the rifle and dismantle bits and pieces before reassembling it, there are lots of details here that I can't write up. I'm in my room again and I have the gun... Wait, what was that? I swear that I heard something but it was just so faint.. I raise my gun slightly and then as if he was just going to peek around the corner, I see the killed (Aaron) poke his head through my door.
      *BOOM* I have a sort of panic moment where I let loose a couple bullets in his direction, he's stunned that he didn't get the jump on me and that I have a huge ****ing gun. He ends up getting apprehended in the end..

      I also remember something about a killer except this time he has a square upper arm scabbard which has a dagger sheathed in it. He jumped out in a comic-book fashion with lines of effect whizzing past him while he drew his weapon and prepared to stabby stab..

    4. #180 - Bus crash

      by , 12-13-2015 at 08:35 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      SC1) 02:12 (my alarm had been going off for about 10 minutes)
      I don't remember anything except waking up planning in my head and talking to myself in my head about a book I was reading.

      SC5) 06:39
      Dream - Bus crash
      I'm on a bus driving around, it's a double decker with an open roof. I'm on the roof at the front and it seems like the driver is struggling to get through the narrow roads. Why is it so narrow? There are parked cars on both side of the road and the road narrows even more at an upcoming pedestrian crossing. The bus shakily goes forward and clips a car, then it scrapes through the pedestrian crossing. The other passengers are students like me, they all snicker at how the bus driver hit something. The bus made it out okay and starts heading downhill but it's veering from side to side and I feel like it's going to capsize. *Bang*, it collapses over and I smoothly hit the ground running. Glass shoots up everywhere, some of it gets in my mouth but it melts like ice. I think about spitting it out but it's just ice so it doesn't matter. Some of the other students go and start crossing the road, hmm good idea. We might as well keep going. There's a bus at a bus stop on the other side of the road that few of us get onto, I pay with a $2 coin I think.
      Hmmm? My mate got onto the second bus behind us, as my bus starts moving I decide to run out the door just as it closes, Indiana Jones style. I run and leap, landing in the doorway of the next bus as it starts off too. Oh, my friend is asleep >_< what a waste. The other students look at me and I consider where I should sit since there isn't any space next to my mate. The bus driver is a lady who is crippled from the waist down and sits in a wheel chair. She looks at me and I get the impression she doesn't mind that I haven't paid because she knows I paid to get onto the bus in front of us.

      Had some intense body fatigue yesterday from exercising too much during the previous few days, it seemed to really affect my recall. I felt like I barely dreamed last night as my body was spending more time restoring itself. I slept like a brick
    5. #127 - High School / School Bus

      by , 10-11-2015 at 11:51 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)

      Dream 1 - High School
      The scene I'm in is pretty much my old high school, except the indoors area probably near the deans + principals offices. This area is a little nicer in my opinion because there's a little garden enclosure, it's small but it has a large tree in the centre. Most of what I remember is more fragmented, there's a couple of us who were betrayed. There was group that was after us and they split to get us. One group had a monkey in it. I recall that the school caught on fire, the monkey was smart and ran away to the school pool and jumped in so it wouldn't get burned. There was also a point in the dream where there was a car with 2 people walking past and the car caught on fire for some reason.

      Dream 2 - School Bus
      There's a bus from school, I imagine we're headed home. I have to sit at the very front on the right, on the crappy isle seat >_<. The guy to my right is called Simon Pegg (the actor) but it's not actually him. He instead resembles a guy I once knew in primary + intermediate school whom I had never actually properly talked to. I think my old friend Isaac gets on the bus too, I remember looking at him and our eyes met. We knew that we knew each other, but we had a falling out and he decided to ignore me. At some point on the bus I head him make a comment on how I shouldn't be talked to. What a dick. We get off the bus, though I have the feeling we're meant to be picking someone up and then leave again. We all kind of just chill out, some people go off to get food. I head to a nacho restaurant with some friends to get a bite to eat. A friend of mine is eating the leftovers from other peoples' meals. There is a lot plates that must have had portions too big for the customer so they left some of them uneaten. The waitress cleaning up says something about us having to pay rather than eat for free. I help myself to a big cornship with salsa goodness covering it. De-lish! I think Isaac is around again and this time it seems like he wants to make up (we made up in RL 'kind of'...) which was pretty lame.
    6. #74 - Getting on the bus

      Dream - Getting on the bus
      I was with my friends (the only face I can recall is Isaac's) and we were approaching the bus stop, it was quite late at night. I noticed the lady bus driver was getting impatient, I hop onto the bus and she starts ringing the bell and saying "Get a move on!" angrily. The sound of the bell is too much for me, it hurts my ears, I kneel from the pain and cover my ears. I'm pissed off now, she's still ringing the bell and I get my right hand and start pounding it against the interior of the bus yelling "Stop justing ****ing stop!!!". She ceases, looking confused... I can't recall much past this but I was about to give her a piece of my mind.

      Note: Haven't been able to do much with dreaming due to a damn cold I've had for the past 3-4 days... Trying to keep recall up as a bare minimum.
    7. #72 - School bus trip, Kissed at high school, Some kind of false awakening

      Dream 1
      So I think I was on bus and we stopped off at this care centre, I left my bag on the bus since we were supposed to get back on in 10 minutes. I went inside and something happened (forgot this detail) where I couldn't really continue on with everyone else to the next stop, it was related to me not being able to hear (My hearing aids have both just broken in real life). Instead, a lady asks if I want to help out and entertain some of the old people at the care centre, I accept (in a nonchalant manner) but I need to change my clothes first (my clothes got dirty somehow). I head back to the bus as it's preparing to leave, but my lack of hearing makes communicating difficult and I ask my friend Matt to help me out. He kind of just ignores me at first, then it's like he's being a jerk or trying to be funny and the whole thing is out of character. The starts to leave and drive down the road and I start to feel helpless.

      Dream 2
      In my old high school there was a circular brick wall about 40cm high with a pohutuawa tree in the middle surrounded by a bark surface. I was sitting on the bricks and it seemed to be during lunch time, a friend was next to me too. I noticed two girls who were approaching, they were my close friends mikayla and kashifa. We hugged and said hello and then kissed each other on the forehead for some reason... Next thing I know, the bell has rung and we're all heading off to our next classes. My friend who was sitting next to me is crawling on the ground and now there's a feeling like we're in primary school, and some people around him are saying "Wow that's weird what's he doing".

      Possibly a dream but not sure 3
      So I had kind of woken up, I'm currently sick with a head cold and I got really disorientated. I was drifting sleepily and kind of falling back asleep but waking up, and I must have dozed off for a few minutes... I thought that my gf and daughter were in the house and that I had forgotten where my daughter was, and I got really panicky since I don't think she was in the her cot. It was dark and I tried to get up to turn the light on, and then I woke up and opened my eyes -.- so false awakening?
    8. #65 - Dream 1 (eavesdropping), Dream 2 (sexy time)

      Black: Non-dream

      Red: Lucid

      Dream 1 - Eavesdropping
      I'm sitting in a bus with a guy called Jamie in the seat in front of me. He's talking to someone sitting next to him about how his girlfriend is having these mood swings, he wants to break up with her because she's getting to be a handful or something. I chip into the conversation and say that if she's suddenly started having mood swings for no apparent reason then she should go to the doctor, it's likely to be chemical or psychological or something that can be assessed.

      Kind of a random dream, it comes from yesterday when we were on the bus ride back, Jamie is the person that just doesn't stop talking

      Dream 2 - Sexy time
      Me and my girlfriend are in the kitchen, I'm just in the corner of the room and she walks up to me and kisses me, we start fooling around and getting hot and heavy. Woot

      I ignored a lot of the longer dreams I had last night because I felt they were incredibly mundane and boring... to the point where I just couldn't be bothered even trying to think about them. *Sigh* Was a bit too tired for lucid dreams last night I think.

    9. #31 - Bad Drivers/Lucid #3/Talking to friends

      by , 10-16-2014 at 10:57 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Black: Non-dream
      Blue: Non-lucid
      Red: Lucid

      Note: There were a lot of friends that know, used to know, or haven't seen in a while. Through out all these dreams I seemed to see a whole bunch of them.

      Dream 1 - Bad Drivers (before 05 00 - birds started chirping about 30 minutes after I woke so it's a rough estimate).
      I am in my university, heading to field (the field is much larger, and has a dirt wall on the left) to meet someone. I remember that my old biol group is meeting too, and I don't want to meet them so I consider running up the side of the dirt wall to get past them. This train of thought is interrupted, as I'm walking I see a crowd of people and a truck just speeds towards them. I SWEAR this truck hit a person, but when is passed there was no one who was injured... I look off to the left and see a bus speeding towards me and the crowd! We all scatter to avoid it, I turn around heading towards a construction area where they're setting new pavement. I remember walking back knowing that the bus has passed, I seem to somehow be talking to a construction worker, I talk weirdly, as if I had a foreign accent... Haziness ensues until I'm walking down the ramp inside the cafeteria building (I remember that it seemed more club-esque style, black walls and dimmed lights etc). I am utterly shocked, because at the bottom of the ramp is my best friend D! He's looking at his phone, I haven't seen him for about a year so I just run towards him and bear hug him . He's apparently gay too, and I hug his boyfriend so he feels welcomed or something.

      Dream 2 - Lucid #3 (07 00ish)
      I'm in my high school walking along beside a bus (I used to bus back and forth from school). I see ahead of me my old friends, and M who I used to be really tight with but he moved away. I'm overwhelmed with the same happiness I had when I had seen D in the previous dream, I start running to tackle-hug him, but I stop. The feeling spurs a déjà vu effect, I realize instantly that I'm dreaming. I don't even do a reality check, I start to float and fly away (this has happened at the start of every lucid I've had). I stop myself, telling myself to stabilize the dream first, I'm rubbing my hands together but I can't really feel it. The same thing that happened in my last lucid happened again, I seemed to have my eyes closed, and I knew that once I open them I'd be awake. Bam. Ruined it again somehow.

      Note: Stoked to have my 3rd lucid, but I need to learn to make them last and make them stable.

      Dream 3 - Talking to friends (08 30)
      I seem to be walking the usual route I take to university, talking to J1 who I don't usually walk with. I tell him that I had my 3rd lucid dream last night, he is impressed and then another friend walks past and asks us what we're talking about. I tell J1 not to say anything, I feel embarrassed about sharing it now (this is probably related to when some people walked in as I was showing J1 some poetry junk I was working on). I see J2 and I'm happy to see him (he used to get bullied and I used to stick up for him in high school), we start talking and I tell him we should go meet with J1 who's standing on the bridge looking into the river (still in the uni, this is all pretty accurately place for the dream world).
