      The first dream I remember having involved me driving down the road on a single-track road. I looked to my left and saw 2 cats, one on either side of a gateway, perched on columns, both staring at me oddly. I looked back to the road and saw a cat about 10 ft in front of my left tire. No time to steer avoid it, I just hoped that I wouldn't hit it. As it came closer, I clenched up as I felt a thud... I heard the cats on the columns (and others, I assume) meowing loudly, almost angrily, when I saw fourth cat about 300 ft ahead jump into the air and sort of divebomb toward my windshield. I was scared for what was about to happen and as the cat came closer, I realized: "Holy shit, cats don't fly.." I went lucid. Unfortunately I don't remember much of the dream from the time I went lucid. I just remember the cat disappearing out of the sky, and that really familiar feeling that comes with lucidity in a dream. Shortly after, I was no longer in my car, and I remember jumping over a building (I usually attempt to fly in my few lucid dreams, but usually end up jumping really high and landing). At some point I believe I lost lucidity, because I don't really remember much else.

      In my next dream, I was meeting my father at one of his friend's houses, I believe. I don't remember why he came up (He lives about 3 and a half hours away from where I'm staying now), but he had in his possession a bag of cocaine, which he was debating on letting me have for the longest time. This is completely out of character for him, as it's an old habit that he has long since kicked, and something he doesn't want to happen to me. He ended up giving me the bag, which I figured was a little more than a quarter-ounce of coke (about 7 grams, which is a lot of $$$). I remember him getting mad at me for even accepting it, because he knew I was going to sell it, and disappointed that I even knew people that I could get it off to. I remember putting it in a secret pocket in one of my hoodies and eventually leaving (there was a lot more conversation I don't remember, but unimportant).

      There was a time-lapse which I'm not sure if I should consider a separate dream, or whether it was even related to the last, but I ended up at my mom's apartment (where I currently reside). When I open the door and come in, she comes from her room to greet me, and I can almost immediately tell that something is wrong with her. She's drunk, and it's extremely unsettling because she's been almost 3 years sober now and I didn't think she was on the road to relapse. After exchanging some words with her, I see some middle-aged dude emerge from her room and I stop talking to her, since she's not saying anything important due to her intoxication. I immediately ask, "Who the fuck are you?" and he said he was her friend. After a short interrogation, I came to the conclusion that she recently met him and he pretty much brought wine over, not knowing she was a recovering alcoholic. I told him to get the fuck out my house or I'd be forced to call the cops, and he told me something like since it was her apartment, he wasn't going to leave unless she said so. The next thing I remember about the dream was the most unsettling. I'm not sure how it got there, or why, but there was a katana in place of where my guitar usually sat propped against the wall. I told hold of it, and threatened his life unless he left the place immediately. He taunted me, saying the sword was probably dull. For some reason, he picked up a pillow off the couch and I took a slash at it, cutting it cleanly into two. His face, I remember, was priceless. He was scared out of his fucking mind, and that's about all I remember before waking up.

      The last two dreams I'll classify as nightmares. Both of my parents have a long history with drugs and alcohol, and it isn't coincidence that they both relapsed simultaneously. I think it's a deeper fear of mine, because I care a lot of both of them, and I know what would happen (especially with my mother) if they did. My dad I wasn't too worried about, because I'm pretty sure he can handle himself. Plus, the fact that he just gave me 7~9 grams of coke is pretty cool, because that can fetch a pretty penny nowadays. Looking at the dream involving my mom, I was really surprised that I was so protective of her, to the point of threatening another person's life. My mom told me after I woke up, that she heard me in the middle of the night. It's been awhile since I've had a nightmare this realistic, as most of the time it's something that doesn't really have a strong possibility of happening, and for that matter, doesn't seem so real. I was legitimately scared for my mother's life here, and I think that's what drove me to the point I was at when I was ready to take that guy's life in her defense.

      I had trouble falling asleep that night before dreaming. I'm sick right now, which has a lot to do with it, but I used the mantra: "I will have lucid dreams tonight" repeated about 150 times before I quit counting, just trying to keep dreaming in my mind before falling asleep. I remember trying to picture something specific as well, which was originally a giant horse*** (big enough to step on buildings), which eventually morphed into a giant cat. This may have some relation to my first dream involving cats, but I can't be sure.

      ***I figured trying to picture something completely unrealistic and keeping it in my mind before going to sleep might trigger that thought manifesting itself in my dreams. I figured a horse the size of king-kong is something you don't see everyday, and should immediately tell me that I'm dreaming if I were to see one. The horse ended up becoming a cat as I lost focus while succumbing to sleep, and it's possible that it did have wings; like the cat that triggered my lucid. I can't recall at this point. I'm not sure if this is a common method for triggering a lucid dream, but it's something that seems to give me results and will continue to keep trying as I document my results in my DJ

      Only fragment I remember was being in my friend Jacob's car with him going somewhere.

      I didn't write this entry down after I first had it, so that might be why.

      I dreamt I was in some kind of game which was a mix of the gunplay/hud style of Gears of War with the gun customization of Call of Duty and the pace of Counterstrike: Source.

      Odd, because I played 2 of those just before going to bed.

      I dreamt I was in one of three arena-like settings. One with a large spider overhead, one with two fighting triceratops an one with two boxing kangaroos. I was in the spider's arena where a giant spider overhead (like 200ft across? Yeah.) was dropping large sphere-shaped blobs on me as I tried to pop them with a stick or something. I remember getting paid a couple thousand bucks everytime I did it without getting hit.

      No recall. I did the mantra "I will know I am dreaming" like 100 times before I fell asleep.

      I had a dream I was in this large room with Lego scatter all over the floor. The objective of this 'game' was to pick up all the stray Lego (ones not connected to anything) and put them at the end of the room to open the door.There were 10 rooms and at first it'd take 30 seconds - 1 minute to clear a room, but after room 3 or 4, it took half an hour and room 7 took 5 hours! I remember Rosa and I were working together and this girl named Caitlin doing a separate set of rooms.

      My next dream was about Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens on like Wheel of Fortune (so random, I know). They purposely threw the game for some reason and later that day, they were picked up in some black Escalades and told them they had a lot of money invested in this. They described how much money they had with "we can wipe out all of Africa with nothing but acid rain."

      My dream had to do with people from my school/class making a video (I guess like a montage) of our senior year. I remember being picked to star in one of the bigger scenes, but decided to give my role to someone else. Time lapse and I'm now in a classroom with the desks facing the center of the room, where a teacher is standing. I don't remember much, but I think we were going to collaborate on writing a song.

      For the past few days I have almost completely forgotten my RCs and ADA. I am going to try to start it up again today, though.

      I didn't have anything by my side to record these dreams right away so it's been about an hour between remembering them and writing them.

      I remember being at an indoor/outdoor pool place for our senior party (which was actually Friday). I didn't have swim trunks as usual, so I just walked around. i remember there being like 3 separate pools and lots of different floats in the water.

      I also remember being with my father. He started getting mad at me for being lazy and wanted me to look for a job. I decided to take a walk down the street to get out, and when I came back he had come up with like a set of rules for me to live by. It seemed just like him.

      My recall has been shit this past weekend, so hopefully once I get back into the monotonous routine of school amd work, I'll be able to focus more on dreaming and rememer to write these down before I forget them. I swear I remembered more than one dream from this night, but I didn't write them down in time.

      I dreamt I had bought a gun from the pawn shop for $150. Or maybe a couple guns; I'm not sure. I was still staying at Rosas house and apparentley it was this big deal I even owned them. The entire dream was basically me justifying my purchase of the handgun and everyone telling me I didn't need it and me getting in trouble just fot owning the thing. Thankfully, I didn't end up shooting anyone.

      I don't remember shit. I'm staying at my friend's house for the weekend, so it makes sense that I'm not particularly focused on dreaming, though.

      First, I had a dream I was driving with Aziz and Nick from school and we were talking about the types of security the richest people in the world have around their houses. Bill Gates had some kind of sticky grass that you couldn't walk in properly, and some fruits the size of swimming pools. Anyway, we ended up driving to a baseball diamond, pulling up to some weird kid, and telling him to get in.

      I could tell the dream had ended and I layed in bed to try to go back to sleep, I think I accidentally DEILDed or something, because the next thing I knew, I was laying down in some dimly lit room, with Nina from my school staring over me asking me something. I knew something was up, but didn't bother RCing or any of that. I was in shock (maybe SP?) because I knew something was wrong. I whispered rather loudly, "Purple skies". Nina and some other DCs who I couldn't see all made the sound the aliens make in Toy Story "Ooooooohhhh". I felt this euphoria that I could only describe as "going lucid". I closed my eyes and tried to imagine myself being somewhere else, but when I opened them, I was back in my bed.

      I knew I wasn't dreaming anymore, but decided to RC anyway., not believing what I just experienced. It all happened so fast, but I didn't get to take full advantage of it. It had to have taken me another hour to fall asleep. I was so excited from my short lucidity (like 5 seconds maybe), that I just couldn't sleep.

      Interestingly enough, the next dream I had, I became lucid. I guess I was extremely skeptical of everything due to my earlier lucid experience. I remember being in a men's locker room, (a girl was in the men's room, but I didn't pick up on it) and I just blurted out "purple clouds" pretty loud. None of the DCs even looked at me or reacted at all. Imagine going up in a room of like 10 people and saying something like "purple clouds" really loud. Yeah, I went lucid off of that, oddly enough. I didn't even think to RC and oddly enough, I didn't have to stabilize. I asked the closest DC if I was dreaming and I don't remember what they said, but I had a short conversation with them. They seemed so absent-minded. Like every response was systematic. Anyway, I wasn't even thinking about flying or shooting fireballs or doing anything supernatural. I closed my eyes and decided I wanted to appear on the moon, which didn't work, and then I decided I wanted to appear on Mars. To my surprise, I didn't appear on Mars, but in a red lighted room with a drill sergeant yelling at me through an intercom system. He told me something that had to do with getting rid of my children if I wanted to fight in this war. Excited for action and ready for battle, I wasn't really sure what he meant by getting rid of my kids. He walked out of the closet beside me and I decided to ask him some things like I did with the other DC. He didn't respond the way the other DC did, though. His responses were shouted questions back at me, namely asking me about a paper on a desk. He asked what one of the drawings meant, and I explained I wasn't sure; it was just a doodle (it was a drawing of a steak I think). At this point, I think I lost lucidity and began to accept this dream as reality again. I don't remember making anymore conscious decisions in the dream. I remembered a fragment of the end of the dream where I was in my class and some kids were exclaiming to my computer teacher that it was possible to control your dreams. Everyone seemed rather intrigued. I was the only person who wasn't so excited and the teacher looked right at me. He looked back away and I guess the dream ended.

      False awakening. Forgot to RC. Rosa comes to wake me up and I tell her about my first LD. I was really excited and she was about to change her pants for some reason. Her mom suddenly walks through the door and she obviously thinks we were sexing it up. She doesn't really get angry, but Rosa is shocked and doesn't have her pants on yet. I can hear Rosa's dad coming around the corner, but the dream ended before he did, thank GOD.

      I had a dream I went to smoke pot with half the people in my class (This would be my first time, as I don't do any drugs). On our way, a police officer stopped us. He arrested us all and we were headed downtown for execution (weird. I doubt you'd even go to jail for 6 months for possession) in x days. Time lapse to death row: We were all standing in line waiting to be beheaded. I can see my friends in line ahead of me, being killed one-by-one. When I came up to be punished, the executioner started a countdown from 15. My heart was racing. 10. I panicked, and started sobbing. 5. I begged him for my life, taking out my wallet, throwing all of $300 on the ground asking for another chance. 1. The executioner put his axe down and told me I had an honest heart or something. I remember telling everyone afterward how I survived death row.

      I'm not sure of the order of these dreams, but I also remember a fragment of another where I was in my friend Diorra's room playing Guitar Hero or something. Oddly enough, the room looked a lot like my friend Josh's room.

      I remember going to a supermarket or something with this weird looking Mexican guy who could find the best deals on like spaghetti. I had spaghetti last night, but other than that, this was pretty random. He also had a creepy van.

      Finally, I remember going to the mall into a girl's clothing store or something of the sort, with a dancing doll on each table/rack. One doll in the store would light up, and if you touched it, then another one would start singing. If you could find this one and touch it in 15 seconds, you'd get a prize. I remember having some reason to do this. Not sure exactly why, though.
