    I am in my godmother's house with her many kids
    I am baking
    She gets frustrated by my spilling flour
    I tell her I will clean up
    When I'm done I wipe it all up
    The bread is a small breadstick someone asks me about
    They compliment me
    I notice the house is dirty
    I spend maybe 30 minutes cleaning up their living room of debris and paper left from the kids playing
    My godfather is very surprised and pleased at the end result
    He mentions having a special time on certain days where we can clean like that, as the whole house is disorderly
    I am fine with it because it's superficial cleaning and wouldn't take any time at all

    Transitions to walking down a street with old highschool friends/church friends
    There are several youth group bands set up all singing the same music along the street.
    I have a rolling table stand I am leaning on and roll it over to watch the groups play in unison
    Suddenly a band behind everyone starts playing their own music
    It's not bad it's just not what other people are playing
    The other bands stop and seem confused so they turn around and watch the new band play
    I stand with friends and lean on my pummel horse type stand table while watching

    I am walking down the street with friends again
    My buddy Nate decides to hit on some girls we are walking by
    He tells them he wants to show them something
    We all get on a shuttle/bus that has a sound system
    We all have headphones we plug into their sound ports
    He is playing some song for them he wants the girls to listen to
    I am confused because the music isn't that great
    He then tells one of the girls that she looks just like the lead singer of this band and he thought she would think it was cool
    People are somewhat impartial
    We all now take turns playing music for each other to listen to
    I tell the group it would be cool if we randomly played a song and had the group guess who was the one who selected it as a game
    People like that idea
    We only get a couple of songs in
    One is apparent because it's a sappy hills CW type song that is definitely this helpless romantic girl sitting in the front who used to have a crush on me

    I now notice that I have two small fuzzy very very newborn baby birds sitting on my head
    They seem incredibly premature and I'm not sure they will make it
    I carefully remove them from my head and place them down on a counter
    They are both still alive but I gather they will need some serious care
    I am in a run-down market like a dollar store with no attendant so I start rummaging around looking for materials to build a nest/make food/administer it to them
    I've only seen a few videos of people taking care of birds this young and small
    I get some soft towels and find some creamy soup I wonder how I will keep them warm and look for a hot water bottle
    The attendant comes out and looks confused
    I tell them the situation and show them the birds, they are relieved and sympathetic to my cause

    Driving w mom in a smart car
    She drives off the road, on a log, and almost over a cliff
    I carry the car backward and turn it around by hand

    I am driving through a winter storm with an older woman in the car
    It is a 50's classic now
    The controls are two levers
    It is tricky but manageable
    Highway speeds but tons of snow and ice on the road

    I am kidnapped by a larger bald man with glasses
    He takes us (myself and three siblings) to some old house in the middle of nowhere
    He has an incestuous family
    His kids don't wear clothes and they are all dirty
    I escape with my sister
    We make it a town over before he finds us
    He takes me in a car to a meeting
    The meeting is in an old dim looking pool hall/bar
    They are having a sacrificial service
    They are burning a toddler
    I don't want to be there
    It is a celebration for them they are all dressed up and communing like it is a holiday for them
    I am disgusted and try to leave several times
    Each time he walks me back in and forces me to watch
    It is smokey in the room
    I escape and make it to my car while everyone is leaving
    I call the police to report what is going on
    It occurs to me there were many firefighters and police there and They may be everywhere
    The guy on the other end of the phone seems unphased
    I hang up and key into my car and start to drive away

    Being given a tour of the space shuttle that is a mix of Saturn v
    There are a few of us standing on the core up high
    There is a screen that simulates the heights and I stand to the side because it is almost disorienting
    Just then the top opens up and we are lowered down the sides almost like a ride
    We each have a chest strap holder like a roller coaster and we line the inside of the craft facing each other
    I wonder if Starship could hold people like this

    I am in a classroom with people I went to high school with
    The math teacher seems hip
    He has long dark hair with some grey streaks
    He also wears black-rimmed glasses
    He has a unique sense of humor and the students like him
    There is a note taped to the front board talking about how his wife left him
    It seems like it's meant to be a morose joke
    A kid I went to high school with is singing/beatboxing a song and everyone is listening to him
    I have the sudden realization that I am too old to be here
    It frustrates me
    I say out loud realizing it is a dream
    'why am I even here? I am too old to be in school!"
    Everyone stops and the teacher looks at me
    The teacher begins talking to me directly
    I don't recall everything he says but he tells me something along the lines of "because you want to learn" it is true, I have been asking to be taught by my dreams
    I just didn't expect it to be so literal
    He explains a few things to me and his voice becomes jibberish
    I begin to wake up
    I remain still and focus on the dream and talking to him
    The dream reappears around me exactly as before with fewer students in there with me
    This happens a few times and I am able to reform the dream and reappear in the same classroom always with the teacher
    The last time I reappear the colours are off in the room
    I ask him why things look different now
    It is almost night time and there are no lights
    I manifest small flames in my right hand and intend them to go along the wall in the back of the classroom, with each one the room gets brighter
    Once they line the back wall they begin to dim and flicker
    I intend them all to be brighter at once and they do
    The room is brightly lit now
    Our studies continue

    I am in the back of a department store mixed with a chemical facility it seems
    There is an invisible person wrestling with me
    I ask them to help me carry cans of a beverage out and they oblige
    I see a girl I used to know hooking up with one of the guys in the bathroom
    They are shocked I walked in but I don't care I just have to urinate really badly
    I set up to pee and go for what seems like minutes
    The guy looks over at me amazed that I am going for so long
    The relief feels amazing
    My penis hangs down past the knee of my shorts when I am done, I don't care

    I am in a gas station/head shop
    I purchase a large water pipe and a smaller rig for oil that looks like the nectar collector but more convoluted
    For some reason, I throw a small weight through a Pepsi machine and it puts a hole in the front of it
    Whenever someone uses water on the beverage station, pop spews out the hole
    I find the water cut off and switch it off to fix the problem
    I find the water hookup to the machine that was broken and unplug it
    I am now able to turn the water back on and other dispensers work


    3/07/20

    There's a taco truck part of a cultural festival thing
    The tacos are super cheap and we buy a few to eat
    Like a dollar apiece
    I have a backpack full of money

    In a friend's house, it is super big with many gadgets and an expensive computer and a voice-activated shower
    I am the rich kid doing some promotional tv spot
    I am walking on top of a telephone booth and something else that is mostly glass
    It breaks with my step and I crash through it falling to the ground
    Broken glass is everywhere
    I am bloody and covered in thousands of small glass shards
    My stomach is cut up too
    I can walk fine but everything stings
    I go to the large house and tell the shower to turn on
    It is a large walk-in room attached to the bedroom
    The water is at the perfect temperature
    I try to clean myself but some glass still remains
    I am picking glass out of my skin the entire dream
    I notice several cars driving down the long driveway from the bedroom which is on the second story
    My friend's siblings have all arrived
    They are all older
    My friend offers me some shrooms to take for our trip
    I eat one to microdose but never end up feeling anything
    They are large like baby bellas not small like normal shrooms
    He turns everything off in his room but tells me to leave his windows open
    The screens are still in place
    We go downstairs and meet his siblings who are all of various ages much older than us
    One of his brothers has a hang drum he is playing on the stage in their front yard
    I want to play it but never make it onto the stage


    3/12/20

    Driving see a circle of sunlight on the moon that fades in a minute or two
    Parked at a campground that is also the parking lot of the spa
    Kevin is giving me a tour of the new facilities
    Everything is updated and newer futuristic looking
    I am crying because I am back
    I pack up and go to leave the parking lot
    Drive down the street before I realize I forgot things on the ground by my campsite
    A necklace and a few more things
    Drive back and there is another car parked in the lot
    I pick up my things slowly and a guy walks up to me and asks me if 73-year-olds can float
    We talk about the tanks while I walk up to the spa with him
    I tell him I was just leaving but I'm happy to talk to him
    He is impressed with my knowledge and glad to talk to me
    I tell him to tell the people in the spa about me
    Mark is standing in the other room talking to other employees

    Fast forward
    I am in a camper/RV
    I am looking at my body and it looks like someone else's body
    My ribs pulsate and roll like a fish out of water
    My elbow has an exposed joint like a puppet
    I am made of a flesh coloured plastic material
    My arm is many mechanisms
    Someone is shocked I don't look human
    I may be an alien
    I say oh, those? Those are just my tubes


    3/14/20

    Some kind of political action event in a long hallway
    People are lined up to hear different other people talk at certain intervals
    There is a woman in a chair trying to talk to people but no one is listening because she isn't official
    There is a man reciting the Hare Krishna
    Everyone joins in and sings
    There is a dance troupe of guys doing a pre-rehearsed dance routine
    I join in for the fun of it but I don't know the dance
    He tells me for the next segment I need a pair of boots
    I don't have any
    They have a special shoe with a brick on one foot
    It is like a stomp routine
    Later he asks me why I didn't dance as tight as them
    I told him I'm not a dancer but I like to dance
    I have no formal training
    He is sitting at a computer
    Upstairs there is a girl who has an amateur bakery in her room
    Her oven is a wood stove made of plywood
    There are tons of fresh baked bread rolls and sourdough in forms
    Everyone seems to be really impressed with her
    She is surrounded by older men trying to court her
    I wait until fewer people are there and begin talking to her questioning about the oven and how it's constructed
    I tell her I wish my parents let me have an oven in my room when I was younger
    It is all a sort of historical reproduction now
    There are hundreds of smaller birds that I thought were moths at first
    They are tiny like the size of cicadas
    They obviously are there for the crumbs
    I ask her who eats the birds
    And a cat appears and catches one on the floor
    She says see, a perfect ecosystem
    We have a conversation about historical reproduction and how someone a hundred years ago would never imagine that we would be baking bread the same way but then jump in our car and go a hundred miles an hour down the highway
    She turns down many gentlemen callers
    Our conversation is pleasant


    3/15/20

    Elon tells me to collect foliage
    They capture a dinosaur and take it across the street
    I have a special calculator that is an mp3 player for Victor
    Nikki falls weird while trying to snowboard down a mountain with fresh powder
    We rescue her and she is embarrassed

    I'm in a large airport terminal/arcade like a futuristic dave and busters
    I am taking a trip overseas with Guy with Ginny too
    I realize last minute I don't have a clothes bag packed and go back to pack clothes
    I'm walking through the terminal and can't find my clothes anywhere
    There is a leak from the ceiling and a couple of small pools of water on the floor
    A worker middle-aged woman tells me not to step there and I don't listen and slip slightly but maintain my step
    She gets mad at me and tells me she is going to get me in trouble
    I ask her if she is a middle school teacher because she's bad at ordering people around
    A cop/guard comes over to me later and is annoyed the woman bothered him for such a stupid reason, he mocks her in front of me


    3/16/20

    Sitting at a four-top table with three other middle-aged women
    They are silently bidding on fancy plates to eat pizza with a fork and knife on
    The woman I am paired up with tells me she only puts one slice on a plate at a time
    We all put our heads down to bid
    I don't understand the process and they are all seasoned in it
    I look at my phone and swipe away a few messages
    The lady across from me chastised me for not paying attention and looking at my phone
    I look up and begin to yell at her and tell them that they are all petty as fuck and this whole process is stupid as hell and I walk away out of the store

    Down the street, I see Nikki by a large tree next to a river
    We hang out and it is a pleasant rekindling
    I am suddenly large and cut like Karl urban we begin to hook up but I am also watching it happen
    As the intercourse progresses there is a power-play between who is in control
    Her face gets blood red and pulsed like she is lifting weights and she grows a beard as she becomes more forceful
    The me I am watching asks her why can't I just love you like I used to, and she shrugs

    I am in a Halloween store with my mother and there are workers in costume just casually walking around
    I go to the makeup section to browse
    There is an upstairs loft that isn't too populated but has a guy sitting at a desk
    He is selling laser-cut temporary tattoos that literally burn complicated designs into your skin but shed within a day or two
    He shows me some demos and I am impressed
    It looks like it hurts but he assures me it's quick and painless, he also shows me pictures of how quickly it fades, I think it's a great idea
    There is a small snack shop connected to the costume store that has three mini sliders for sale
    They have 3 of them put together to show the workers on a shelf up high with a mirror directed to show the reflection
    They seem tasty but I don't try any
    There is a drive-thru

    I am suddenly in a Mexican restaurant of sorts back in the kitchen
    I gather I am a server but hanging out with the cooks
    I see one of the cooks eating his lunch real quick
    There is a paper towel dispenser which is full of long flat tortillas rolled up
    His burrito is half hanging from the ripping part as he eats the remainder
    I take both hands and pull out the last bit and ask him if I can have it while it's already in my hands
    He shrugs and I realize I should have asked before grabbing the food with both hands
    I apologize and begin to eat it.
    It's dry but flavorful

    I am a cowboy in the western 19th century
    I am with a troupe who take over some ritzy plantation with force
    We threaten with guns but aren't overly violent
    The slaves are all worried at first but I assure them they are all free now and don't have to worry about anything
    They are all african american women in their 20s and 30s and they are surprised and happy to be freed by us
    The plantation owners aren't very pleased but go along with it
    We all sit down to have a meal and serve ourselves family-style dishes
    I have huge portions on my plate of coleslaw green beans and potato salad
    It all tastes really good and I talk to the people around the table about how southern food tastes so much better when you're in the south
    There is someone in my troupe who is severely prejudice against army soldiers and there is a soldier who is in the room too
    He tries to fight him and wants to kill him outside
    More army shows up and there is a large explosion


    3/17/20

    There were several episodes to my memory recall. But it picks up. And I am in a homie warm large cottage, that seems like it's at a summer camp or something. Surrounded by people that are there at the camp and they are familiar to me like festival.

    There seems to be a kind of war. For the battle between the two sides, one is a red side one is a blue side people are dressed like pirates, but also like festival ware.

    I talk to a guy who has multiple large sticks/logs, and one of them looks like a didgeridoo. I ask him if it's a didge and he says, I don't think so but it might be and I ask him if there's a hole in the center. I take it from him and begin to look and notice that the log is larger than I thought it was at an off angle and there is a hollow hole through the center of the trunk, but there are many cobwebs and debris inside of it and I don't feel like putting my mouth on the end to see if it reverberates like a didgeridoo.

    At a certain point, there was a female companion with me who felt very warm. We were connected in a way that we knew each other prior to this experience. We spent time alone away from the group, we were inside of almost like a hanging woven wooden egg-shaped chair we sat in together and there was a spell put on the chair so that no one else could see that we were in it even while standing next to us. There was this overarching theme of magic. Like maybe we were magical creatures or we were hanging around magical creatures.

    There are some memory gaps and it transitions to me exploring the outside area and there are multiple buildings all connected with a flat black asphalt pathway, that is almost as wide as a road and is very smooth and glossy. To move quickly. I put rocks under my feet and I'm able to slide down the hill very easily almost like I'm ice skating.

    I see someone else pass me on the other side of the walkway only they are riding a flat disc-like sled. They look at me laughingly and are curious at what's on my feet as they pass me by going the opposite direction. I go to the far edges of the area and there's an older building that doesn't really seem to be used anymore, but there is a small family out front and I gather that he is making fake bigfoot plasters imprints And they are worried that I will catch them in what they are doing, but I pretend not to notice and ask them questions about the building. They say they will open the doors for me but no one is in there, so I don't really care. I end up walking through one of the glass panes into the building and it's like a science museum child's education center. With cartoonish graphics on the walls amongst other things but it is barren and no one is in there. I walk out and tell them what's the point of having a lock on the door if their windows are open, I continue walking around the campus.

    I am suddenly in a theater/arcade area where everything has neon lights. They are low lit like pink neons and green neons and everything feels retro almost like from the 80s. I don't recognize anybody anymore and there are many older games that are being projected on a movie screen in a theater that people are playing. I ask a guy sitting upon a stool playing an old box arcade game what year it is and he says, it's 1980 I say, oh shit I must have time-traveled again. Now realizing that I am stuck in another time. I can't figure out how to get back, so I just wander around and explore the area trying to get to where I came from. Every new opening seems to lead to a new area. None of which looks like the place I was in before.

    There's a big open midway. That seems like the opening of a movie theater with many different doorways going in different directions, it almost feels like a science museum. But more like a theater and everything is still retro colored and the people even are dressed in the style that was popular in the eighties.

    I am in India
    There is a strong current river next to the town I am in there is a long tube wave down the length of it
    I befriend a young girl who identifies as a boy but she looks more androgenous
    We venture around the markets of the town and they seem quaint and simple, yet familiar
    I have one day left in India before I have to travel back and I am trying to figure out where to go to spend it
    I have a conversation about which part of India is more Muslim and which is more Indian traditional
    We are taken to an Indian temple that hosts pagan rituals
    There are several guys in the group who seem like posers to me
    They want to be baptized in pigs blood
    They are lowered into aquariums full of blood and act super affected by the ritual
    While this is happening the temple is lit with a green glow, it is night time
    I begin coughing hard and a long bloody hairy mess comes out of my throat
    I cough up this bundle of blood and hair and feel incredibly relieved when it is all out, it takes a minute or two to drag it out
    I am annoyed at the white guys who paid to have the faux ceremony and gather it is a service the locals provide to tourists who don't know any better

    We are at a convenience store and the guys are being rude and rambunctious
    I have painstakingly baked a cheesecake from scratch and one of the guys found it and ate it all
    I am pissed off because I have to shave
    I grab his mouth and press the remaining cake out of his mouth and smear it on my face to shave with
    I wipe it off with napkins
    We find a snack dispenser that has reusable plastic bags under it of different sizes to our snacks in, I am trying to do the bat conversion to figure out if I have enough money left over to buy some

    There is a large overweight man who comes into the store and pushes over a girl in our group
    I start hitting him with pipe pieces on the floor and he is shocked
    He claims innocence and was just trying to get her attention
    He walks back into the kitchen and asks for hours to work, they put him to work


    3/20/20

    Cooking school under one chef she is female
    We are in blue and red teams
    She asks me to make chocolate ice cream with thousand island
    I spend time walking around looking for the recipe folder
    My friend from my last restaurant job is in the crowd and wants to talk about aliens but I am busy trying to put the recipe together
    It ends up looking like a hamburger bun with ice cream in the middle
    I ask the chef if they are macaroons
    She says no that would be cream on cream
    we take a field trip to Tel Aviv to sample traditional food
    I am excited because it looks very authentic and the restaurant is filled with locals
    We file into booths along the wall
    There are mostly females and I am one of the few guys
    We look at menus and I order a coconut shrimp appetizer but don't remember ordering my main course
    The restaurant seems to be meat-based
    After we place our orders we are ushered next door to a warm springs spa where we can relax and get massages and general pampering
    It is very relaxing and the water feels great
    We are all in our bathing suits
    After some time we finish as a group and begin to congregate in front of the restaurant next door for our meal
    One guy in the group is trying to complain/make a joke that we should all be in our trousers to relax, but he is wearing a long traditional dress and so am I. He says "everyone is wearing their trousers come on", I reply slyly, "Oh really? Everyone huh?" Sarcastically, people giggle at me and the teacher next to me laughs at my observation that he is not in trousers
    We sit in new tables this time that are rectangular heavy wooden tables with wooden chairs all around
    There are maybe a dozen such large tables in the hall
    Just as people around us are getting their food a very large crowd of maybe 50 Muslim men arrive in the open-ended restaurant all cheering clapping and singing
    They go from table to table one at a time lifting every chair and table up to shoulder length while chanting a certain prayer or blessing very loudly
    When this happens I notice the women lean backward and throw their heads back and the men lean forward and bow over their table
    I want to watch but an obese man at the table next to me grabs my neck/head and holds it down during one of the blessings
    When they get to our table the food is already on it but we all stand up and let them lift our chairs and table while we stand by and attempt to sing along with the blessing
    Once they finish the whole crowd departs as quickly as they arrived singing and clapping getting quieter as they leave the area
    The whole experience was energetic and mystical almost otherworldly
    We are now sitting at our table looking at the food which has been sat in front of us. I don't remember what main I ordered but I am sure I don't have the right food, other people's meat looks really good but I think I may only have an appetizer
    The dream fades as I look around the table at everyone's entree, wondering if this is family-style or if we are only allowed to eat what we ordered.

    At a rodeo wearing a long tan coat
    There are many people there
    A native american girl keeping giving me weird looks
    A guy tries to sell me his run-down jeep cherokee for $400
    Jake Neely runs around like a wild beast chasing a cow
    I have a sniper rifle


    3/22/20

    Purple electrical storms
    5 tornadoes/dust devil's
    Eat waffle house to go
    At a school after hours hanging with a teacher

    A large america festival with thousands of people closely packed in
    Run by a company that sells fake underwater experiences using fish tanks and backdrops

    At some underground party/festival and hear a band playing in the basement
    I see a guy who looks like weird al there is no one downstairs watching
    The band sounds awesome like electro-funk and they are wearing costumes like cybertronic spree
    Lasers and light effects and smoke, it is an entrancing show
    I watch and groove for a while and a couple of people show up and are super surprised that I didn't come specifically to see the band and don't know their names
    They both are wearing cybertronic spree t-shirts
    they go back to the band manager and tell them I am living in 2015 and don't know anything but that they need promo people and I might be useful

    Something about Bin Laden coming down a river in a boat to see me
    I have two books I take with me
    We sit in the boat, it feels Egyptian
    We talk for a while
    Afterward, a guy who works for him tells me he is impressed that I talk to girls every day


    3/23/20

    Going to Wayne's house for shamanic group
    There are many people I don't recognize
    A lot of them are young
    Gin is with me
    We watch a pixar movie about a dragon that changes colours
    There is a balloon made of glass in the room
    The shamanic practices never start
    I gather he doesn't practice anymore
    His wife left him and he lives alone

    I am trying to get to Wayne's house and driving the car through some shopping mall that is also a restaurant
    People are shocked I have a car on the walking path
    I ask a woman how to get to a certain address she tells me to follow her
    She leads me to another woman who starts to get a table for me
    I tell her I asked the other woman how to get to the address on this paper I have
    She rolls her eyes and walks away
    I decide to use my phone and google it
    I was close, his house is through a shop at the end of a corridor

    I leave Wayne's and walk down the block
    I am in Kettering by a large field
    I see Jack with his drum and many others showing up for an event
    There are maybe a hundred people there
    Jack tells me it's drum day, he asks me to move a garbage bin to the edge of the road so the smell doesn't blow into people while we play
    I am amazed there are so many people gathered.
    I am suddenly upset no one has masks on and everyone is pretending it is like before with no precautions
    I decide to go back to Wayne's to tell him about the drum circle
    He has no idea but is surprised by the coincidence
    He doesn't want to leave the house

    There is a cafe in the mall outside his house with a stage
    There are many musicians who gather to make music
    I have my guitar with me in its soft case but I don't play
    One of the musicians has a rattle that is many hands that clap when you shake it
    He has some monologue about how making tools to congratulate yourself stunts progress when you self reinforce without external checks
    A larger vehicle drives by that he made with dozens of the same rattles automatically shaking and cheers playing through loudspeakers
    It's like a mobile cheering and clapping crowd. But no one is clapping
    I am missing my guitar and go around the stage looking for it, I see several cases that are the same as mine but have other equipment in it
    I realize I left all my stuff in my car
    Someone has my possessions in a felt purse they put aside for me
    I jokingly ask if I can keep the bag and they say no
    I walk back to my car, a child asks me if I am looking for younger people, I say no I'm leaving now, everyone says bye to me

    I'm in a classroom that feels like a mix between an art room and a cafeteria
    I look at myself in the mirror and I am a younger blonde girl with odd shapes painted on my face like Bowie
    I get into a verbal argument with a table of obese african american girls sitting in front of me
    They were making fun of someone close to me and I began questioning them and telling them off
    One of them got up and started walking towards me
    I mock their actions asking them if they were going to hit me because they disagree with me
    I am on a roll and they don't know how to respond because everyone around them is astonished they are being told off by a little girl
    A bigger girl who looks trans begins to get an attitude with me, I tell her off just the same
    People are on my side because I am standing up to horrible people who are known bullies
    She eventually gets fed up and walks away
    People are happy for me
    I make a comment about something big as she walks away because I notice she is a head taller than everyone else
    People go ooooooooh and I feel like I have won the day

    Road trip south to Florida w family
    Get there and realize Gin isn't with us
    They say she's not invited and I get angry and yell
    It's a white house kinda run down I think it may be my uncle's second home
    We stay on the first floor
    I go to the basement to explore
    It is dark and cavernous like a dungeon
    Cody is with me as we venture from room to room
    There is water under the floor
    There are tons of red jellyfish looking creatures in the water
    I Google them on my phone
    I slip into the water once but they don't bother me
    Cody helps me up
    We go into a larger room that has metal bars all around the windows like a prison and a very large almost statue-like dagger/feather hanging diagonally from the ceiling through the room
    The whole room is musky and rank with cobwebs all over and vines hanging from the ceiling
    My mother's brother shows up and flips on the light switch to the room
    The lights flick on and everything looks normal now, flat white walls and tile floors
    I am shocked that it looked so crazy before and wonder what the effect is
    I pull out my flashlight on my phone and turn the lights to the room off again and shine it
    I see now the effect, the light shines through the thin walls and shows the bars in the other side of the windows and such
    The large feather dagger hanging from the middle of the room is gone
    I try to describe it and mention I have seen it before, I've been here before

    I am with a group of friends in a post-apocalyptic scenario
    Many people are migrating at once and there is chaos
    Large crowds of people walking down the street congregating at certain waypoints to meet with others
    At one of the waypoints I see a girl I used to know, only she looks slightly different
    I glance at her name tag and it says Elizabeth though I know her IRL name is Savannah
    I say loudly, Elizabeth eh? As I walk out of the crowded room with her to my back
    She is with one of her friends and calls out to me when we get outside
    I go back to her and we talk
    She looks different but still familiar, slightly rougher as if life has been tough for her
    She mentions she has a place where we can sleep for the night if we need
    My friends are very interested because we are nomadic survivors now and will take anything we can get
    It skips to the house where she offered us to stay
    We are all in one room and there are three beds in it
    The sheets are made but it feels like an old person's house
    I realize that people have died in these beds and there are towels on the floor at the end of the beds with fluids on them
    There is that stale putrid smell in the air
    I ask if it's true and she says yes, the place she works at deals with body removal and she gets to use whatever is leftover
    I am immediately bothered by the situation
    I cannot sleep in a bed that someone just died in
    Someone in the room questions me as to my hangups and I tell them
    "The fabric of space-time, the literal three-dimensional space is torn or altered by the transition when someone dies. This place is tainted by death"
    The person struggles to listen to me and kind of rolls their eyes at me
    I don't care and leave

    There is a fragment where I am with a large hispanic family
    One of them has started a food truck and is catering a party they are having
    Everything is free and laid out like a cookout
    People have their fill and there is still plenty of leftovers I pick through
    Some 7 layer taco dip
    Some chips, some tacos, and a tres leches cake with white icing
    It all tastes very good but I don't have any utensils and eat with my hands
    The icing goes everywhere

    I am on some gameshow with several over thieves and criminals
    We all take the same tour bus around town
    I gather the theme is something about who can steal the most without getting caught
    We are given nothing and no help
    But everyone must be secretive and no one really talks to each other
    At the store, one guy tries to take a large pallet of rolled quarters but is immediately caught by security
    I bend over to help and hand the stack of rolled quarters back to the guard
    While doing so I skim two rolls of the top with my fingers without anyone noticing
    Sweet I am broke and hungry as hell
    We are all walking around a grocery store trying to figure out what to buy to eat
    Everyone else is looking for packaged processed food
    I go to the fruit isle because it is the cheapest and best nutrients for the buck
    I buy some lemons and avocado with my change
    I go back to the RV we are staying in and make a pitcher of lemonade and eat the avocado
    Someone else was caught trying to steal something
    I go back out and attempt again
    We are by a casino that has large golden letters on a sign
    I take one and wrap it in a towel and barely make it back to the RV
    It is then revealed to me that I have been caught and the whole show was secretly being filmed about us, not about what we were told
    I manage to escape in a bathrobe with my pitcher of lemonade in my hand
    I am with someone else who is older and reminds me of my mentor Doug
    We steal an armored RV which belongs to the security following the show
    They are not pleased and shoot at us as we drive away
    We crash through a gas station and stop for some reason
    Doug asks me if we want an assistant
    There is a younger asian boy who wants to join our adventure
    I am appalled because it is dangerous and I don't think we need to have a child involved with this
    He asks the kid if he wants to come and he says yes so we let him on board
    We drive away speedily while being shot at by the pursuers
    The windows and the car are bulletproof
    I find an assault rifle loaded in the back, I cock it, take off the safety and proceed to try to shoot back, all the windows are barely cracked but not open really
    As one of them starts to drive up close to us on the back right I stick the nozzle of the gun out the crack and shoot out one of their tires
    We are on the highway going very fast and they immediately wreck into the sidewall
    We lose our pursuers and continue driving along
    I begin searching the RV for any supplies
    It seems brand new and not stocked at all
    I find a mini-fridge and go through it
    Nothing but an empty lunch bag in it
    But I pull a cover from the back and discover a boatload of cookie dough of various flavors
    I hand some off to Doug and the kid
    We munch on cookie dough while driving away to freedom, the dream fades


    3/28/20

    I am in a bigger white house sleeping in a bed with gin and another couple
    They are older and the woman looks kind of washed up
    I had seen another couple in the house cleaning that looked just like the other couple and the woman told me it's her sister who is now with her ex. He looks like the other guy but they are not related
    I gather we own the house now but they still live there as cleaners
    They also have kids who are running around
    I am not very amused and find the whole thing rather unprofessional

    I am suddenly in another house which is like a small studio
    There is a guy with a shaved head and hair on the front of his head only and glasses
    He is showing a custom washing machine he built which fills itself with a container of soap and starts itself at a tap, he is proud of it
    He leaves and his girlfriend begins to give me the tour/introduction
    I am in an Airbnb of sorts but it is very small
    It is rustic and in the middle of nowhere in the forest
    The bed I will be sleeping in is in the same room as their kitchen/laundry room and she tells me she will be coming into the room to do things but she won't bother me
    I am fine with the arrangement because there isn't a lot of space
    I venture around the land and it is very green
    There is a small stream running parallel to the property and there is bright green moss all around the base of the many trees
    I see large spiral snail shells in the moss and amazed by their size

    I am suddenly in a post-industrial landscape with a large cathedral-like manor that houses an orphanage or church I am unsure
    I was once part of the community but now gather things have changed and I am different
    They have a prophecy of a dark one I may be fulfilling
    I begin flying around the many rooms in circles high in the air
    I am dressed as Santa Claus
    I continually shout Merry Christmas as I fly by people
    The kids all point and laugh but the adults are cautious and lead them away
    I feel several loose spiral shells in my mouth and spit them out to look
    My hands and face have gone dark
    I am eating a slushy from a paper pack and slow down by an adult, they take the trash from me
    They make a comment I am acting like a child now and laugh though most of them still fear me
