    Technical Difficulties

    (I have false memories of having moved to an English speaking country recently...)
    I'm returning to my apartment, carrying some groceries.
    As I exit the elevator I stall for a few seconds.
    I have completely forgotten where on this floor my apartment is...
    So I just go to the first door and test if my key fits.
    It does, and I decide not to worry about why I would have forgotten where my apartment is.


    The apartment is quite roomy, and very modern. The entrance leads directly into a large room,
    which is sort of divided into 3 areas. One for tv viewing, which has a U-shaped couch,
    one for sleeping, and finally one with a computer desk for work.
    I find it a bit odd that the bed is in the same room with the tv and desk.

    But my attention quickly shifts towards the people that are in my apartment.
    There's a guy with white hair watching TV and a woman who is using my pc.
    I feel like I know these people. It doesn't seem too surprising that they're here, but I'm not really sure who they are.
    The woman approaches me and gives me a hand with the groceries.


    I notice that she has purple eyes. It all makes sense now: This must be ~ Dreamer ~!
    She is very curious about what I bought for dinner, and begins to unpack the groceries immediately.

    "Ooh, shiny!"

    She is cheerful and full of energy.

    "When do you want to have dinner?"
    "Hmm... I don't know. I'm not really hungry yet. Canis?"

    Oh. The guy watching TV is CanisLucidus. Makes sense I suppose.

    "I'm starving!"

    They banter on about when to have dinner. Meanwhile I try to figure out what time it is.
    This proves to be rather difficult. I'm unable to read the time off the task bar on the computer. The digits keep changing.

    "Hyu?"
    "Yes?"
    "Hmm... how do I put this? ..."
    "Hyu, where is your kitchen?"

    "Well, it's right over..."
    "Uuuhm..."

    ... There's only one door in this room, and it leads back outside.
    So, this is all there is in the apartment? I don't have a kitchen? Not even a bathroom???
    How on earth did I manage that?

    "Don't tell me you forgot to get a kitchen..."
    "... I might have?"
    "And a bathroom?"
    "..."
    "See, this is what happens when you're on the PC all day long!"

    I don't know what to reply. This really is a rather colossal fuck up.

    "Okay... don't worry about it. I'll sort this out."
    "I'll go get you a kitchen and a bathroom."

    What??? How? ...
    I suppose, since this is a modern apartment, it must be modular in some way, and you can annex additional rooms to it?
    I try to talk ~ Dreamer ~ out of it, because I feel that since this is my apartment, and I messed up, this is something that I need to fix on my own.

    "Nonsense, I'm going right now. I'll be back in an hour or so."

    She leaves the room before I manage to come up with a reply.
    To be honest, I'm kind of relieved that she is helping me out.
    I have no idea where to get additional rooms for my apartment...
    I definitely have to make it up to her somehow.
    I end up talking with CanisLucidus about game engines and the Oculus Rift for a bit.
    (Through unfortunately I remember nothing specific)


    I feel like my overall awareness has been improving over the past few days, and it has had a positive effect on lucidity.
    But this dream for some reason, even though it was absolutely cluttered with dream signs,
    I managed to remain completely oblivious to the fact that I was dreaming.

      I'm so excited that I got to feature in your dreamworld again!
      I like that my character seems assertive and helpful, those are nice traits.
      Haha, it's funny that we each had moments with each other in our latest dreams.
      I'm glad you feel like your awareness has been increasing lately. Sometimes the non-lucid dreams are fun anyway! I really enjoyed this one.

      I still have a semi-lucid dream with you that I need to post. It was pretty short, but I'll let you know when I transfer it.
      I've been getting behind with my DJ lately, but I've still been enjoying my dreams.

      Can't wait for your next entry!

      PS. Let me know if you ever need a kitchen/bathroom and I'll hook you up. I know a guy!

      Awesome, hyu, I am honored to have made it into your Dream Journal! And with Dreamer, no less!

      That is so cool that we got to hang out for a bit in your dream and talk shop! I'd have loved to know what we talked about. You know, the guys and I just got our Oculus DK2 a few days ago, so maybe that's what you and I were discussing!

      There's a guy with white hair watching TV
      I LOL'd at the white hair! When did I get so old? Dreamer consoled me by saying that this must have been silver-white hair "like a video game character". I was instantly super happy again! I was the dude from Karateka!

      Oh yes, definitely. Especially the randomness can be really fun at times.

      Nice! With some luck I should get mine at the end of the month. I'm so excited about it.
      I actually had an interesting dream about it a few days ago. I have yet to post it though.

      Dreamer is right. It was definitely dyed white. It looked kind of badass actually!
