    1. Nights 3/4

      by , 03-06-2023 at 06:27 AM
      These are my first 2 nights of the competition!! I started a bit late.

      Night 3:
      Full non-lucid dream:
      Me and my close family (dad, siblings) are at a small, dingy looking restaurant called "Meyers". I recognize it as being related to the grocery store Fred Meyer, just without the Fred part. Across the street is a Dunkin Donuts, and that makes me notice this place is also a "donuts restaurant. There are seats and tables lining the walls, so my family sits down at one of them. I look around, and notice glass windows in each of the tables containing some donuts. I keep looking for a table to sit at. Each of them has a price labelled on them. I settle on a "45" table.
      (What's interesting to me about this dream was that I haven't been to Fred Meyers in years; they had them in the state I used to live in, but not in FL.)

      Non-lucid fragment 1: Something is following me, but not like in a bad or weird way. It's not a person, it's some sort of usable, helpful item, following me like in some video games (such as the Toppins in the recent indie game "Pizza Tower", which I've been playing recently.)
      Non-lucid fragment 2: Something relating to the "strongest part of my body", which according to the dream is my head currently resting on my pillow.

      Night 4:
      Non-lucid fragment: Something relating to my sister.

      This dream felt like I was watching a movie. Of course, because it was a dream, it pretty much felt like I was watching it through VR, like I was a ghost or something. Anyways:

      The "movie" takes place in medieval times and followed a guy. He was big, and a bit dim, but motivated and kindhearted. He kept trying to deliver a very important and powerful item to someone in power that would be used to save the day, but this person was actually evil! They kept avoiding taking it because they know it would be used to stop their plans.

      Eventually, he spontaneously decides to get on a horse and quickly travel to their new house, still being built, to see if they're home. He finds that they aren't there, so he decides to look around the place. He doesn't find much, until he looks under the floorboards. He slowly lifts a board out to get a crack at what's below, and he finds a hidden basement! He looks shocked, and is ready to go in.

      He puts the floorboard back where it was, but it spins in place, like the signposts in Sonic games. As it spins, each rotation causes the area shown beneath it to be something brand new, caused by magic. It finally stops spinning, and it ends up on a restaurant.

      He takes out the floorboards, and jumps into the room. It appears to be a sort of Italian restaurant, with brick walls, warm yellow lighting, and red and white checkered tablecloths.

      After just a moment, a waiter, a female anthropomorphic frog, walked up to his table, and asked what he wanted. He decided to try an order he knows no restaurant is able to serve him: "I'll have deviled eggs with pepperoni and a side of cornbread."

      Shortly after, she came back with the order exactly. He was shocked, and it tasted amazing too!


      That was kinda a random dream, but it was fun to watch unfold!
    3. Winter Competition 12/4/22 (2nd dream)

      I was walking through some sort of large place with tables that people were sitting down at. A convention hall for clubs and hobbies, or a lunchroom, perhaps. I was asked by the people of a certain table I passed by to do the "Crystal Eye" Test, or something like that, I forgot. (It had "Test" at the end of it, for sure).

      I responded with "No, I do lucid dreaming, thanks."

      They had dumbfounded looks on their faces, and I just continued walking away.


      So, I think this is related to concepts like reality shifting and astral projection, which I don't believe in. But also, dang! I literally mentioned lucid dreaming in a dream, and nothing came out of it!

      I walked into a classroom (like this was my goal, to be there for the next period of school), and it was a Science test about the "San Francisco version of modeling positions". I tried to figure it out quickly before the test started by looking at the notes of someone who was sitting next to me, but I couldn't figure it out. I then tried copying their notes, but it seemed nonsensical to me.

      Also whatever this is, that I recorded in the dream journal entry right after: "Left or right = convert to a specific 4 letter word I forgot, add a longer specific word I also forgot that makes it 15 letters. 15 x (i)686 (for left) or 15 x (x)64 (for right) multiplies to a big number you need to do it."

      So, this dream was kinda a bunch of nonsense, which is odd. I did take a science test the day before though. By the way, i686 and x64 are computer hardware architectures. Maybe this is all related to when I don't study for tests and can't fully figure out what some vocab terms mean. They're just nonsense to me.

      Night #1 (slept at night on the 1st but woke up on the 2nd, can't edit the title)

      Non-Lucid Dream: I'm in a small bookstore, my family is waiting for me outside. It is nighttime, and we are in Seattle. I look through the books on the shelves, but nothing is interesting to me. The employee behind the desk asks me if I'm gonna choose a book already, which pressures me to find one. However, there's nothing I really want to get. I keep looking, and I come across a basket of free, fresh bread rolls above a shelf. For some reason, I feel guilty about not choosing a book, because they made these rolls and I should compensate them for it! Maybe there's something in the Young Adult section, I think? I haven't checked that one yet. I look through the shelves to find the shelf with that genre, but I can't find it.

      I noticed that this dream is about being unable to pick a book at a bookstore. This has actually happened to me numerous times when I go to the bookstore! Also, the guy getting mad at me for looking too long was straight out of a post I read online before sleeping about that happening to someone, which is interesting to me.

      All in all, I'm happy I was already able to have something for my dream journal after a multiple month long dry streak. Hopefully we can keep this pace up for the rest of the competition!

    6. First lucid dream - walking around

      by , 05-02-2022 at 05:35 PM
      I was in my house, a weird mixture between my old house and my new house. If I remember correctly, I was observing a wooden crate, either that or making a sandwich. I make an offhanded comment about lucidity, so I decide to check. 6 fingers? I checked the other hand and it has 7, like it just kept having fingers when I thought I got to the end of it during my counting."I'm dreaming." I say to myself in shock and joy as finally I have a reality check that happened during a dream. But, I kept my cool the whole time, and never got openly excited which might end it early.
      I left whatever I was doing, and started walking around the house. I see a weird man in a black cloak appear from around a corner or something. I can really only see his beard. I pay no attention to him, but he seems friendly. I start to walk upstairs, towards my room, when he asks me a question. "Hey, is there anything in my beard?" (He said something very similar to this, but I don't remember exactly.)
      He's kinda far away, so I think of this as a good time to try a lucid ability. I reach into my pockets and pull out a magnifying glass from thin air, letting me see the guy's beard in more detail. I told him it was clean and got back to my business. I turned around and started walking to the outside of the house. "I'm gonna go out and bike," I say to him. "Hopefully I'll find fairies, or whatever other cool magic." (I'm not exactly sure why I said fairies specifically, but I really just wanted to go out biking and see what what's out there, stuff that couldn't exist in real life.)
      He chuckles a bit, and says okay, choosing to join me. I don't really care, so I let him follow me without saying anything. I walk outside using the front door, and come around to the garage. It was closed, so I flipped open the garage door keypad. This part worried me, because the keycode has always been the same in both houses, but I've heard light switches are weird, and reading doesn't work due to that part of your brain being off. I decided to look away and just try doing it from muscle memory. Surprisingly, the garage door opened. I looked at the keypad and the buttons from the lock pattern were lit up in green, obviously not what I pressed, nor the real code. I was just glad it worked. I came inside, along with the cloaked man. He gets a little excited seeing the few bikes around the otherwise completely empty garage. I, however, do not see my bike anywhere.
      I walk back inside, and grab my backpack which sat on the floor next to the large glass balcony door. I put it on the kitchen island, back-strap side down. I open it up and take the last few things from my already pretty empty backpack. A few pieces of junk or pencils or whatever, and also a small flatscreen TV which I leave face down on the island.

      The TV, which I put into this backpack in a past dream!! None of the cables nor the remote it originally came with. (In real life, the TV is being used in my sister's room, with cables.)
      (Maybe the garage door opened not because of the right pattern, but because I was hoping and confident that it would open? That is how dreams operate after all...)

      **In a later dream that night... (Not lucid)** I was exactly where I was where this lucid dream just ended. By the balcony door, looking at the dining room. This time however, the wooden crate from before (maybe) was on the table, and my sister was there, sitting down.
      "What do you think it is, <my name>?" She says to me. I guess that it's an animal, and she laughs.
      "We're saving it for when Dad comes home in a few days." She says.
      "Well, no animal can live in this tiny box without any food or water for 3 days. It has to be something dry." I respond.
