    NON-DREAM DREAM LUCID

    I took an afternoon nap, I wanted to just sleep for an hour starting at around 1:40-2 PM, woke up to the alarm that I set for 3 PM I believe, but then I slept again and woke up at around 5PM.

    Spoiler for Insight on what I did before sleeping...:

    KAOMEA, thanks for suggesting that I do focus on other dream senses (even though I knew about it for a while now, you just convinced me to go back to it again ).

    Dream 1: Walking up to Random Apartment

    This is probably just a dream fragment but, I remember walking upstairs somewhere to go to a room. I remember a bowl of crackers with peanut butter in them stacked around some area of this apartment.



    I can't remember much for that one.

    Dream 2: Leaving Class

    The dream starts out from me being in class, and the teacher was giving instructions on how to play this game. Apparently it was suppose to be a simulation on surviving some kind of attack, and we were all given individual statistics on a card lined up with a specific trait (like how much you were likely to survive something or doing something).



    It was basically like a role playing game where you could upgrade, but in real life. He was explaining the different parts, and I saw that a number that I remembered the most was "16". The person to the right of me had the number "25."

    I was a little concerned because I found that other people had values higher than mine, but I didn't say anything but worry a little bit.

    Then the teacher was done explaining and saying that he'll see us all tomorrow. But overall, the day felt like a Friday, so I wanted to tell him that, but I kept quiet.

    The whole class was quiet too, and then the teacher caught himself and apologized and then said that he'll see us on Monday. Then as I head out, I see a DC that looks exactly like my Uncle.

    He was wearing a striped dress shirt with short sleeves that was blue overall with different shades of blue. It seemed he had his hair trimmed a little bit.

    I look at him and he looks at me, and he's smiling at me. I go up to him to shake hands with him and he's like "Hey, man!" with a positive tone. After we talked for a few more seconds, he had to go to the bathroom. He didn't tell me, but he had to leave and I turned back to see where he was going.

    I keep going, and the place I'm in has brown brick walls to it, and brown tiled floors too. There was a few bright yellow-ish lighting in the area.

    I go further and further from the initial point in the dream and find that my cousins came out of one of those small areas you see in Supermarkets that would have a Starbucks, McDonalds, etc.



    I go up to them, and they recognized me. There are 3 of them. I shook hands with two of the guys, and hugged the female. I don't remember what I asked them, but I hanged around with them a little bit before leaving them as well.

    Dream 3: Starbucks look-a-like Store


    Now I'm outside, and I go to this area that seems to be selling deserts and other sugary things. It seemed to be like a Starbucks-look-a-like, but from what I remember, the place had small shades of red to it.

    It was like being in a Circus almost, with the striped and slanted coverings in case it rained. There were several sections of this large place outside. It had sections for deserts and other things.

    There were places to sit as well. There were stools with tables, or just tables with chairs to them. I believe the chairs, stools, and tables had different shades of red to them, and even some pink to them as well.

    I see a Black female DC who was pretty young, she looked a lot like the girl from "Everybody Hates Chris." For some odd reason, I assumed that she was a relative of mine.

    blogs/linkzelda/attachments/2821-walking-apt-class-leaving-seeing-uncle-cousins-starbucks-look-like-going-lunch-imani_hakim_everybody_hates_chris.jpg

    I greeted her I think and she does the same, and I asked her what I wanted from the Menu that I could barely read. I also asked if I could have a Vanilla Milkshake, and she said "Of course! Of course we have that!" with a happy tone.

    Then I see a used Vanilla Milkshake on another table, and I see the Starbucks logo on it, and the small details of it like the small linings on the back for the employees to write down what the order was.



    It was quarter-filled with Vanilla Milkshake (or Vanilla Bean Frappuccino for you addicts).

    Then the same girl gives me a phone that seems to be some new slim version of a Blackberry. It was really slim and thin. It had a rotating scroll that was flat (like a small disk placed on top of the phone that you could move around with your thumb in a circular motion).

    blogs/linkzelda/attachments/2822-walking-apt-class-leaving-seeing-uncle-cousins-starbucks-look-like-going-lunch-medium_eng_art02.jpg

    At first I thought this was a toy, but apparently the place gives free phones. So I'm playing around with this phone a little, looking at the small features it presented (it was a new phone that was in a small plastic package).

    Then the girl was sitting down with me for a little while before going up to tell the others what my order was. She was telling me that I could give her something better. She said she was selling an XBOX for $99.

    I took some time to bask in that price, and then to make sure, I asked her "For an XBOX 360?" She says yes, and then I started to think about it.

    Then to the right of me, I swore I sensed another DC at another table was trying to listen at our conversation, but I didn't want to look back, I just had the DC with my peripheral vision while talking to the girl.

    Then I believe I wanted order more stuff from the Menu, and I said that it won't be a problem since I could afford it. I was looking at my wallet, and it resembled the one I have in waking life. There was some money in it, but I didn't pull it out completely to to see if I had a certain amount of dollars.

    Then I told her that for the XBOX 360 price, I said I'll think about it I believe, and she leaves to probably go finalize the order for whatever I ordered.

    Then when she's gone, for some odd reason, I'm pissed that she's telling me that she's selling an XBOX 360, I was complaining how that's the price range everyone gives (even though I haven't seen an XBOX 360 that would be in good condition for that much however).

    I can't remember anything else from that dream. I probably was just waiting at the table for my food order to come in.

    Dream 4: In Class or Seminar and Going To Lunch

    Before I start talking about what I experienced in this dream, I just want to mention that I had the opportunity to get lucid because I was walking to lunch long enough to where I'm wondering where I am to do an RC. But this was another vivid dream that I took for reality.

    I'm sitting in class, the seats we were sitting in were just fold-able seats without mini desk to rest your hands on. All of the chairs were white, and I was sitting at the front row at the top right corner. The carpet was dark blue with small bits of other colors that didn't dominate the overall color though.

    There where white boards on walls almost on every side. (The boards that you can use markers on and wipe with an eraser, and they had the small extension on the bottom to put the markers or erasers on for later use).



    A lecturer, who I believe was female was talking about something I didn't remember too much on. She was fairly dark-skinned, but I didn't pay too much to her facial features, I was just listening to her.

    After she was done talking, she asked a question on who wants to get an extra +16 points if they wore some pink coat or shirt if they were in Nursing or something
    (If you remember from the second dream above this one, I had the number "16" on a card, but now a DC is saying the word sixteen this time).

    Then I realized I raised my hand for the wrong reasons, I'm not pursuing Nursing nor am I interested in it. But I didn't freaking care, I just raise it until she picks me. The classroom of DCs started to go "Awwwwwwwwwww" in a sad tone.

    I then realized that the classroom mostly consisted of females. If I had paid attention to the females around me instead of using peripheral vision, some would've been familiar DCs of people I knew and saw in High School.

    Then I wore the Pink Jacket and everyone left class (there wasn't a bell ringing, so I assumed this was College, but it had mixes of High School elements to it).



    Everything now is in Third-Person Perspective. I'm seeing the back of myself walking with my upper body slightly slanted, as if I was walking like a caveman for a while, but I think I straightened myself up quickly.

    I'm on the top floor of the building that I'm in. I guess my intention was to go to lunch now. So I keep moving forward to get to the double doors (the ones you push the small and horizontal bar to open the door).

    Then I go down the stairs a little bit, and I stopped a little bit to look around the place. I hold on to the railing of the stairs, and I look down to see that the stairs were structured like they were going to rotate until you reached the bottom floor.

    blogs/linkzelda/attachments/2823-walking-apt-class-leaving-seeing-uncle-cousins-starbucks-look-like-going-lunch-7295579_a392eddc3b_m.jpg
    This meant that there was a gap in between when you started turning (you know how you can see the other set of stairs by glancing from above? It was like that).

    (It's hard to see in that picture, but you can see there's a big gap between the swirling stairs where you can look down at the bottom floor)


    The gap was big enough for me to jump down to save more time instead of walking all the way down these sets of stairs
    (but in reality, you wouldn't want to jump that far down because of obvious reasons). I reached the bottom floor in a few seconds, and then I hear two DCs talking to each other as they're going down the stairs.

    They were in the Corp Cadet attire that people wore at my University (only if you were in the Corp). One was a black DC who was in my Biochemistry Introductory course my first semester in college.



    He was with his friend who had Corp attire as well, I just assume it was his friend, I didn't pay attention because I was busy jumping through the the gap to get to the bottom floor. The guy was trying to sing a song along with his friend, but it felt like they couldn't get the lyrics right.

    So they ended up laughing and stopped singing the song. I'm at the bottom floor, and the flooring was white with very tiny spots of black to it. It resembled the area at Mayde Creek High School that was near the cafeteria.

    Then I realize I'm wearing a Yellow Jacket now instead of the Pink one that was given to me for free, and I was also wearing a dark Violet shirt. I thought to myself that I was wearing complimentary colors for like a split second and just kept walking.



    I go to the Cafeteria of this random environment mixing in several elements of High School and other places. I picked the shortest line. The place was structured to where there were holders attached where you could slide your trays and wait for the Cafeteria people give you what you wanted.



    I peeked over at the selections they had, and looked at other lines that were waiting for other food. I saw more appealing food on the other side, but the line was too long for me, so I bared with what was given to me at the line.

    As I'm busy sliding my tray, I see green Onions that weren't chopped completely, in fact, it looked as if they just came out of the plastic package and was lined up. By the time I get there, there was like 1-3 sticks of Green Onions.



    The food that was served to me, I only remembered it looking like potato and other types of meat, but as I went further in the tray line, the food and place started to get smaller and smaller to where I was just holding a really small and thin bowl of what looked like soup instead of Provisions and other types of food.

    As I'm trying to balance this small bowl in my hand, I had to grab several white napkins along the way to the cash register so I wouldn't lose too much of my food. I kept doing this for a while until I finally found a line to place my food on to slide while I wait for my turn to pay.

    Then realized that I had to give a school lunch pin
    (In the schools that I was in, you had a Student ID that would also give you a lunch pin # if you signed up for something that would give you cheaper lunch prices, and you would get the same thing everyone else had to pay a higher price for).

    I'm now speculating on what the hell my School lunch pin would be. Then it's my turn to pay, and I get my wallet out instead of entering a pin. The debit card (at least I thought it was a debit card) was Maroon, like the main color of Texas A&M University at College Station.



    The cash register accepts it and she starts calling some number, probably to verify something. Then she started to take too long waiting for the call, I got impatient and told her that I can just pay her with cash instead.

    I get my wallet out again to get some cash, I believe I was going to give her $10 so that she can give me some change back.

    Then as I turn my head back to her to give her the money, she turns around and starts trying to break the debit card into pieces!

    I'm telling her to don't do that, and I wave my hands around a bit panicking and telling her to stop. The freaking woman tears it in half.

    Then I realize I'm sitting down at some random lunch seat with some random people.

    Imagine you're pissed off at the same lady breaking the credit card with just her index finger and thumb, and you're pissed, but you suddenly find yourself transitioned in a section of the cafeteria while still carrying on the emotions of rage. It was like that.

    I started screaming and cursing at the woman. I told her that I was almost going to pay her her money for some meal that was shit anyway. The meal was gone, so I was even more pissed off.

    I think everyone in the Cafeteria was looking at me because I was so pissed. Then things turned random. It was like everyone was trying to cheer me up.

    I see an older female DC that looked like the AP English teacher I had in waking life before being switched to the other AP English teacher
    (there was an overload of students in her class, so I was just one of the students switched to the other one that had blonde hair).

    Anyway, she comes up to me. She's the type of teacher to just look at you as if she has something mean to say to you. I'm afraid to mention her name, but let's just call her Runyon. Runyon gets closer to me and then she starts asking what's wrong.

    Then the whole setting feels like I'm in Willy Wonka's positive energy in a Cafeteria. I was still pissed off at the the lady tearing up my debit card. I was sitting next to a girl to the left of me that was another person I knew in waking life.

    Let's call her Stephanie
    (she has a fairly curvy structure and is pretty tall in waking life, but in a good way. She has her body in the places that would make any guy gaze at her....and her lips are big and juicy too...sorry just adding that so I know which Stephanie was with me in the dream since there was another Stephanie in my older DJ that was much skinner with big lips too; both are Hispanic).

    Anyway, Runyon tries to cheer me up, and everyone is trying to sing a song that will make me laugh, but I still keep a stoic face trying not to laugh. There were moments where I was almost going to smile, but I suppressed the urge.

    Then as I pay attention to the DCs around me at the lunch tables, I see a Blonde that was standing up who wore a fancy black corporate dress (even though DCs were blocking her lower features, I just had a hunch she was wearing a short dress).



    She smiles at me, I look at her for a little while, I see that she's wearing lip gloss that just makes her lips really shiny. People started to think I was smiling, but I still had a stoic facade and they were like "awwww" in a sad tone.

    Then the whole Cafeteria started to sing another song. Apparently it was "Peddy Punnit" or something like that, not to sure.

    I don't remember the lyrics of this random song but the beat went like:
    (The "BLAH"s are just replacing the actual words that I can't remember).

    "BLAH-BLAH-BLAH!" *CLAP CLAP* "BLAH-BLAH-BLAH" *CLAP CLAP*

    Eventually I started to give in and smiled and was laughing again. However, I fell down under the table before anyone caught me smiling.

    I can't remember anything else, even though that was probably the longest recall I had for a dream for a while now...

    I wake up and started to take in a really deep breath and quickly looked over to the right of my alarm clock.
    Spoiler for More Insight on what I did when I woke up....:




    REMEMBERING OTHER DREAM SENSES REALLY IS USEFUL WHEN RECALLING LARGE QUANTITIES CONTAINED in small images or moments.

    Especially when you focus on Dream Character's expressions, you can analyze the overall atmosphere of the environments, and extend on the experiences.

      I finished it! Those are some pretty random dreams. Do you actually get a significant amount of other dream senses just normally? I really don't get anything but sight and sound when people are talking for the most part.

      I mostly get sight and sound as well, but as I'm typing the Dream Journal Entry, I start developing senses or acting out the experience.

      Then I imagine what it would feel like tasting something, and then I can remember something else from that and use another sense.

      I'm still a noob on dream senses. I have to get lucid if I want any results from that. But at least I'm building up dream recall. It's just that I don't RC in the dreams. I need to come up with clever ways to RC other than pinching my nose and breathing, because I usually don't do that in my dreams, even though I do it from time to time in waking life.

      I guess I can see that, maybe I should try focusing more on other senses too. I honestly don't think I can remember any dream I've had where I recalled using other senses except in lucids.

      I've been too lazy to try RCs. I really should though, I think I'd probably get lucid a lot more, even though I'm pretty accepting of absurd happenings.

      I wonder if there are multiple ways of seeing. I mean (and forgive me for using Avatar as an example) but what if we tried to see things in dreams the way the Naavi people see each other? Not just with our eyes but with energy. Being able to feel what can't be explained. Would that be like making things up or simply changing our perception to include the unexplained. Would that matter? Our dreams are our perception so wouldn't it be just as valid?

      Thanks, Link for reminding me there are more ways to use our senses. It's not just about expanding the ones we have, it can include finding ones we didn't know we have. I think. Who knows. Maybe I need more rest. Now I'm rethinking what it means to see and experience events.

      Anyway, glad to see you're expanding your awareness. The debit card thing was funny. Got a good laugh outta me.

      I'm glad you laughed

      You seem to be pretty busy with life lately.

      But yeah, it's really weird, normally when I wake up, I'm like "FUCK!!! What did I do in the dream?"

      Then images start coming out of nowhere and suddenly this ambition to write everything down links everything together.

      Then I see more and more and more....I'm amazed at how much my mind keeps helping me remember what I experienced. Even though I'm not lucid in 99% of all my Dream Journal Entries, I think I'm getting better with dream recall.

      But I think the reason why I remember a lot is because I usually over analyze things sometimes (people's actions, lives, family, attitude in waking life).

      And it's also probably because I try to be condescending towards myself when I realize I'm trying to be condescending to others. It's hard to explain, but this self-degrading personality I've been accustomed to has been counterproductive for some odd reason when remembering things.

      Anyway, before I make no sense at all, the last dream really made me think if my mind was just trolling on me.

      I don't think I'm becoming aware though, I think I'm just good at recalling experiences and emotions. And once I remember one part of the dream and hold on to that image, I can link it towards other potential images.

      This whole DJ entry probably took me over an hour to finish. xD

      EDIT:

      I think what helps me remember is the fact that I'm pretty much lonely in college right now hahaha.

      I have nothing else to do but remember my dreams, after I type them up, it's just college college college. BLEH xP

      Or maybe I just want to do insane things whenever I get lucid that keeps my mind motivated to remember a lot of detail.

      But right now, I still think I'm trying to filter out the bullshit I'm getting from my dreams, that last dream was basically a "COME ON LINK CHEER UP DUDE!"

      Blah, what the hell am I saying, sure I'm expanding my awareness if I'm remembering the experience. Lately, my mind has been a great help to me, but also a little too overcritical on small things
