    Last night I had a dream that this local actress I did a play with a few years ago came to my school to do an acting workshop. I had to sing a few bars of a musical theater song, so I (unoriginally) sang I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables. Then suddenly it turned into a computer programming class taught by my Spanish teacher from freshman year, but he wasn't speaking English or Spanish, he was speaking this mixture of French and gibberish. Then I woke up.

    I also tend to dream myself into my stories when I'm thinking a lot about it/writing a new one. Some of them involve me making out with attractive people. Others involve me being brutally murdered. So those are always pleasant. /sarcasm

    Dreamt last night that I was in an antigravity chamber.
    Floated about swinging on ropes and kicking off from the walls.
    Everything was white and black.
    It was nice.

    Last night, I had a dream that my boyfriend and I were at the mall shopping for giant gloves, and when I say giant, I mean our whole bodies could fit in them. Anyway, while we were at the mall, this group of girls tried stealing some stuff and they got chases after. That seemed irrelevant to us, because we picked out our glove and went outside. Outside, we were at a giant mountain covered in snow. We went to the top and some guy helped us sit on the glove we just bought and we slid to the bottom. At the bottom there was one of those ride on rockets that you put a quarter in. There were three, kind of large, guys sitting in it and they couldn't figure out how to turn it in. My boyfriend pressed a button and the rocketed suddenly jolted to a start and the guys got mad at us for starting it when they weren't ready.

    It was bizarre!

    I had an awful nightmare that is not even close to reality. At all. Facepalm

    I've always been prepared for standardized testing. I bring multiple number two pencils, freshly sharpened. I even brought extras at one point for friends. But for some unfathomable reason, in dreamland, I brought not one, not two, but three pencils with the wrong lead. Da fuck. So my old HS English teacher just rolled her eyes and said I could take the test but I had to wait for a pencil from her. So I sit down like an idiot and wait for a pencil while everyone else is taking this ~*~super important~*~ test. And she didn't give me a pencil during the nightmare and I woke up so annoyed. Grr Damn.

    regular dreams, it always involves me and my friends somehow, usually hanging out at one of their houses. It also involves a certain dirtbag I haven't spoken to in a year. That's usually the only normal dreams I have.

    Nightmares, I've found that I only have nightmares when they're meant to be prophetic. I have straight out terrifying ones :

    1. I dreamed I was visiting an asylum where I was a prisoner (like in jail) and I was brought to this torture room where I witnessed mostly girls getting their limbs chopped off but they were still able to walk and move, even the girl who had no lower body and missing her left arm. I started freaking out and begging the lady in charge to not let me be next. She calmed me and assured me I wasn't by saying "No you're not next, this is just to show you guys what will happen if you continue down the same road." I have no idea what that could symbolize, but I'd like to think it refers to the emotional torture I felt when I was living three hours away from home and dealing with a heartbreak, plus the fact that there was so many shady people in the town I lived in, idk :/ I woke up terrified and kept thinking about it when I went to school.

    2. I dreamed my house somehow turned into Hunger Games almost and there was a bunch of adults in the house. But each adult had their own personal slave that they tortured. Every victim was being punished severely (limbs cut off, whipped, etc.) it was violent and the worst part was I was a victim and a slave to my mom. I was crying and terrified that I was going to be punished next and begged her that they wouldn't treat me the same way. It ended with my boyfriend and I escaping somehow and I kept asking him if we could run away and change our identities, but he got mad at me and held up my wrist, telling me to be quiet because the adults could hear us and put tracking devices in our wrist. All I remember after that was I was screaming because I took a knife and cut the tracker out. I realize that it might be due to the way I sometimes feel trapped living with my mom, and how sometimes she stresses me out. That's a just one theory :P

    3. The other nightmare I had was when I dreamed that I was somehow kidnapped by two people, a guy and a girl. They strapped me to a chair and then they grabbed barbed wire or some sharp wire and the two of them began laughing hysterically as they sawed at my right arm and I screamed as they cut it off. I don't know about this one, but talking to my friend she seems to think it was probably representing the fact that I felt torn about the guy I liked, knowing he was treating me wrong. And for the girl, it was the unwanted information a client I had that happened to know the guy I liked and told me some dirt about him, which made me torn because as much as I needed to admit he was an ass, I still couldn't let go of him.

    So yeah, everyone once in a while I'll have a traumatizing dream :P

    Finally had a dream about Drew Chadwick, hoooooray. Wow
    I was pretty much sitting down with him and we were friends and can that just be reality or. . .?
    I mean. We were talking. And it was lovely.
    Whistle
    I should just watch Emblem3 videos everyday before I go to sleep. Guide my subconscious mind to the correct path.

    Whenever I'm sick I have these recurring nightmares, although these days I can somehow recognise them as they begin in my dream and wake myself up by slapping myself in my drew (I don't even know).
    Basically, I'm in a giant black infinite space and giant coloured exercise balls are flying towards me and I have to deflect them or else I get the sense that I will die if I don't push them back. It sounds kind of stupid writing it out, but at the time it freaks me the hell out that coloured balls are trying to kill me.

    But on a happier note, one time I had a dream where Ricky from Motionless in White was running up the stairs in my house eating a piece of toast whilst holding his jeans. Nothing really happened but I woke up in a great mood ahaha And one time I had a dream where I was looking for my wallet (that I had lost a few weeks prior in real life) and found it underneath an umbrella, so in the morning I was like "I'll just go check under the umbrella box in my house, it'll be hilarious if it's actually there." And then I found my wallet and kind of freaked myself out.

    Last night I had a dream that I actually stood up to my Uncle and told him that he shouldn't talk down to people the way that he does because it ruins their self-esteem. He was totally amused by it, and didn't are what I had to say at all. Pretty typical!

    I had a dream last night where one of my favorite bands, Hey Mercedes, was getting together again, which is awesome enough in itself! Then I found out that Bob Nanna had created a TV show that was coming to ABC Family, and it was about a band in the '50s trying to make it. (Plus, I was friends with all of Hey Mercedes for some reason.) The band was called Pepsi Cream at first, but then during the premier, Bob texted me and said they were gonna change it to Jupiter Cream (which is a cool name, in my humble opinion). I forget what the actual TV show was called, but I remember it premiered after a horrible sitcom starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler.
