    False Awakening

    1. So close.

      My Dream starts off with me and my friend (we'll say his name is Al) at my neighborhood community center. All of a sudden, Al saw a turtle (or tortoise, not completely sure), and proceeded to skateboard after it. The scene shifts.

      I am at my house when another friend (we'll call her Ann) comes over. We simply hang out for what feelt like the entire day. I start to realize something's wrong.

      "Come on," Ann said, pulling on my arm.

      "Hold on, let me check something." I responded.

      I try to push my fingers through my hand, with no success. So I pull out my phone. It reads 8:00. I turn it off and on again. 8:04. I try again. 7:00. I try yet again to make sure. A Korean sentence is displayed.

      "I'm dreaming!" I shouted. Before I get to do anything cool, I have a false awakening into a cartoon world

      I woke up pretty quickly, feeling disappointed in myself.

      What I found really interesting about this dream was the sheer scale of the time dilation I experienced in my dream. I lived through a full day in there within a one or two hour nap. Also, it was my first lucid dream since I joined DV, which I think is cool. I'm kinda upset that my lucid dream was so abruptly ended right as I gained lucidity. Also mad that I was unable to regain lucidity in such a surreal, cartoony dream, right after a pretty realistic dream world. But that's also really interesting to me.
