I just had a dream about a poor young adolescent girl forced to work for some Asian mafia who tries to escape her life after meeting an outsider with a depressing past. The last shot of my dream was a one take shot of the girl fleeing the casino premises after her outsider friend essentially makes a distraction by causing a ruckus. The camera would be following the little girl but it would occasionally stop and turn sideways to show one or two people in the distance still chasing after her. You’d only get like a brief glimpse, a body running past a hallway or a pair of eyes looking through window shades. I wish this was a real movie now! Haha, and I’m sure the concept of this film has been done before plotwise, can anyone think of a movie like this?
The first one seemed like a totally normal dream. I was in a city with crazy ass architecture and city layout when I realized that my car had been towed because I didn’t pay the parking toll. No big deal, I asked a police officer how I could get my car back and I was off. I was with a friend and we were walking along this tube that was perilously high. My friend slipped and fell off a fucking cliff that was like… a 200 foot drop and all I remember was everyone rushing to get to my friend and then the dream ended.
The second dream was REALLY out there. Basically I was on Mars and for some reason Eli Roth - of all people - sparked a revolution by releasing all the prisoners who then overtook the planet. After things had settled, someone set off… I’m not sure what to call it, almost like a black hole that was a wall? Basically this “wall” sucked everything into it and moved across the entire planet and for the whole dream I was running away from it afraid I would die of a heart attack. By the end I was at the very end point with a bunch of people and I decided that I would rather jump into the white oblivion under my own power than get sucked in, so I jumped and then we were just kind of sitting there floating in nothingness and then I woke up.
Oh yeah, and one dream I had a few days ago was that I was on the Titanic 0_o. Yeah, that was fun /sarcasm.
I had this really weird dream where I was literally living in a gritty TV drama like Breaking Bad or Boardwalk Empire or something lol. It was like a TV show, but my real life, I don’t know how to explain it better. Like I knew it was a show that people were watching, but it was my actual life that I was living (which I guess sounds like a reality show? But I knew there were definitive seasons and story arcs going on, oh whatever…). I would alternate between playing the main character and just watching the show from a third person perspective. Christoph Waltz, Gerard Depardieu, the guy who played Merle in The Walking Dead, the guy who played the Frenchman in Inglourious Basterds, and for some strange reason Jennifer Aniston (????) were all there, and I’m sure there were others that I don’t remember. Christoph and Jennifer Aniston were on my side and by the time I woke up I was at the end of season three where my top hitman - played by Christoph Waltz - got shot in the head and Merle, Gerard Depardieu, and the French guy were now taking control of the mob from me and my guys. I have to say, it was a damn compelling drama, I wish I remembered more of the details LOL. My dreams have been getting more fucked up and esoteric as the nights pass >_>
Oh mannnnnn. It was a really random dream but the details escape me right now. I feel like… it had something to do with a heist and time travel… that would make for an awesome movie actually lol. Kind of sad that I don’t remember that last one…
I’ve just been feeling so burnt out from school lately. I know there’s only 3 more weeks to go, but I have been seriously checked out for the last week. Thankfully I scored 10/10 on my assessment quiz with barely any studying and I’m pretty sure we killed our presentation, so I feel kind of good about that. I desperately needed last night to just clear my mind and relax, even if only for a short while. I don’t know what it is though… Even as I try to think positively, I can’t escape my dreams. I woke up THREE TIMES last night in a span of 6.5 hours. Once at 4, once at 7, and once at 8. And the weird/crazy part is that it felt like each dream got progressively worse and worse. It’s difficult when you feel like you can’t say everything you want to say and you’re holding yourself back. I just don’t know how much longer I can take the insidious nature of these dreams.
Had a wild ass dream last night. So I went to bed at around 11 since I had to wake up early for clinical. The last time I checked the clock it was 11:10 and I think I fell asleep not long after. So I was dreaming and all of a sudden I was pulled out of my dream and fully conscious that I was sleeping but I couldn’t move my body. I start panicking like “OH FUCK, am I in sleep paralysis right now?” Because I know in sleep paralysis you’re aware that you’re sleeping but you can’t move your body and some people say that you get this feeling like someone is sitting on your chest, which is exactly what I felt. So I try harder and harder to wake up and eventually I wake up… BUT I’M IN ANOTHER DREAM. So I was dreaming within a dream that I was in sleep paralysis and when I woke up I was still in a dream. I have this weird numb feeling in my lower right side like it fell asleep on me but I continue on with my dream. I don’t know why but I was on the run from someone when my lower right side starts hurting again. I look and a huge amount of hives is developing on my lower right abdomen and I’m just thinking “WTF!!!???” It starts to get progressively worse and worse to the point where I couldn’t move at all and I just crawl up into a fetal position. That’s when I wake up FOR REAL and I’m sweating a little and I feel WIDE AWAKE. I feel like I’ve slept for 8 hours and I’m completely awake. That dream just really fucked me up and I’m super alert. I check the clock… IT’S 12:40 AM!!! I’ve only been asleep for an hour and a half tops! That AND I feel my lower right side… it’s numb! It fell asleep! Just like in my dream! So yeahhhhhh… that was my weird mindfuck of a dream. I hope I don’t have another one like that any time soon… I don’t think my heart can handle it >_>
I just had the strangest dream ever… The best way I can describe it is that it was like a mix between Inception and Like Crazy. And a bit of Bad Liutenant, Stay, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and any film with an ambiguous ending. I know, that sounds absolutely insane, but that’s what I got.
And the way I experienced the dream was a trip too. At times I was merely a third party observing the action, almost as if I took a camera and was following the main protagonists (who constantly changed), and then at other times I was part of the dream and one of the lead characters.
I’m going to try to remember to some of the weird stuff that happened…
I was stranded out at sea (which is a HUGE nightmare for me lol) with a spirit guide trying to find land. I actually see land off in the distance and start swimming towards it, but for some damn reason a gigantic whirlpool appears out of nowhere and sucks me into another dimension. That cut me to a different part of my dream, but I’m not sure which one…
There was another part where I was inside a family’s apartment and they had set up a bunch of trip wires that set off a sound if you opened a door too wide or stepped in the wrong place. It was such a random ass apartment and I kept thinking “why did they booby trap this entire apartment?” Not sure how this sequence ended…
I suppose the reason I said it reminded me of Inception mixed with Like Crazy is because the part I remember most vividly was Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones at a train station but for some reason I knew it was in some sort of “dream world” or alternate reality ala Inception. She tried to dash off at the station, but he caught her at the train and convinced her to come out. I think she wanted to leave because she thought it’d be best for them, but he really wanted her to stay. In this part I was viewing everything like a guy with a camera who happened to see all this (like a movie) and I remember thinking during the dream that I was watching Like Crazy and thinking to myself, “Man… Like Crazy was a lot better than I gave it credit for” LOL. What’s weird is that I was getting some Ron/Hermione, Peeta/Katniss mix ins with this scene. Like it would flash and I would see those characters for a brief period of time.
The end of my dream was fucking weird… So I guess Anton Yelchin eventually grows up to be Liam Neeson? Hahaha, so yeah the end of the dream is Liam Neeson sitting on a couch with his entire family surrounding him and a couple close friends (which honestly felt like a dream). I guess Neeson was ready to pass on to the afterlife? But there was like something different about him, like he was an experiment or something because he had a close doctor friend who wanted to observe his “death” and see what happened. And I have no idea why, but apparently the way for Neeson to die was to cut off his pinky? He cuts the pinky and the screen goes black and that’s either the last thing I remember or I woke up immediately afterwards.
So yeah that was completely baffling off the wall dream that blended several different movies into one damn near incomprehensible dream. When I woke up my first thought was “what the hell was that?” because that was one of the strangest dreams I’ve ever had and could still recall when I woke up.
I had my first cool dream in a while! I had a dream that I was friends with Harry, Ron, and Hermione from Harry Potter (obviously, where else would that trio of names be from? lol) except Harry Potter was REAL and the books were really nonfictional events that actually happened. THAT was pretty AWESOME! Haha
Once again my subconscious keeps fucking with my mind…
I had a dream that one of my good friends died and when one of my friends broke the news to me I threw up and was in complete hysterics. And afterwards… I’m not sure what I was doing, but people kept asking me “what are you looking for?” like “why is this such a big deal to you?” When I woke up I was literally shaking and it took me a minute to convince myself that it was all a dream and none of it was real.
I just started thinking to myself how I wasn’t going to let it get to that. I wasn’t going to let my life need a “wake up call” or have something tragic happen for me to really start understanding just how precious life is. Every single second, every blink of an eye, every breath of air, everything single thing I am able to do, I can’t take that for granted. I mean maybe we’ll hit some bumps in the road, maybe we’ll have some real problems, but just the fact that I’m alive is a blessing and something to cherish as a true miracle.
The timing of this dream is quite remarkable as well. I’ve seen several shows and movies that made me ponder the way I view and live life like 50/50 and Angel Beats (now that I think about it in full context of my dream, that last one is quite ironic lol). Maybe I need a reminder like this dream every now and then, but it’s not as if I don’t appreciate the life that I have. I know that I’m very lucky and blessed to have such a supportive family and amazing friends. I go to a great school and the future looks bright. And let’s go down to the basics here, let’s even take it to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. I’m blessed to have a roof over my head and a plentiful amount of food to eat. How about the fact that I’m even breathing right now, isn’t that alone something to celebrate? To quote Kevin Spacey from American Beauty, “there’s just so much beauty in the world.” I can’t help but think of all the beauty in this world that I don’t see or appreciate when I do happen upon it. Maybe I just need to look at things from a different perspective. It’s easy to say “don’t take things for granted,” but I think that most people still do. I think that if you try your hardest and handle every aspect of your life with love, you won’t regret anything you do.
I posted just this quote up yesterday, but it’s so damn true and relevant right now that I’m going to end this post with it.
“Death is so terribly final, while life is full of possibilities.”
I blame Community’s “Remedial Chaos Theory” episode and Community in general for it haha. I was catching up on Community season 3 last night and I tore through the four episodes released so far and went to sleep around 2:30-3:00 in the morning. So in this dream I had a brain tumor and I was going to die, but I was amazingly saved by surgery and for some reason, days later I was up and about doing just fine. My mom bought me a drop top convertible and I was driving like a maniac through Daly City and for some reason halfway home it turned into a scooter which was, again for SOME reason, extremely fun. I got home and I saw there was a charity benefit dinner with my name and Yao Ming’s attached to it and I remember having a conversation saying that my name would be attached to a charity foundation after I passed, which led me to wonder if they would take my name off now that I was still alive. There was all sorts of advertising plastered all over my house in big 100 foot ads. That’s when I woke up and thought “WTF was THAT!?” I’m not even remembering most of the dream, that was just the small amount that I actually remember. Freakin’ dreams man…
Here’s two dreams I wrote down in my phone recently…
I had a dream that the Terminator was after me ALL THE TIME. Of course Terminators never stop so it came when I was at school, on vacation, etc. I can’t recall if it was the Arnold Terminator, T-1000, or the TX…
In another dream I woke up in September 2008. I don’t think I recalled anything specific about this dream because that’s all it says, but I think I just wrote it down because I thought “what if you actually woke up 3 years in the past? What would you do?” That would be an interesting idea to tackle.
I just remembered that I had a dream that I met Anna Kendrick and she was a huge fan of Bill Willingham’s Fables. I want to live in that dream hahaha.
Had that recurring dream about basketball again last night. I HATE THAT DREAM! I’ve written about it and I’m not sure if I can find because the search feature on Tumblr is for shit. Basically in this dream I’m playing basketball and I can’t do anything right. It’s essentially the horror world that Michael Jordan imagines when he makes that bet with the leader of the Monstars squad in Space Jam haha. I’m playing basketball and I can’t do shit on the court.
Basketball is one of those things where I consider myself to be a little haughty to be honest. I’ve been playing since as long as I can remember and I think I’m a pretty decent player, especially in comparison to your average “baller” who shows up on the courts.
I think the reason I had this dream again is twofold. One, I’ve been feeling extremely irritable lately and this recurring dream is easily one of the most irritating recurring dreams ever for me, and two, I actually played basketball last night and I was playing pretty fucking good. The reason I say the latter is maybe my mind is trying to tell me to humble myself? Because I felt pretty frackin’ good yesterday and maybe my subconscious is saying “slow your roll.”
All right, now I’m hungry…
P.S. I found that old post about the dream.
Had that recurring dream about playing basketball again -_-
I hate that F’ing dream… and it happened in the span of the 9 minutes of extra sleep I get when I hit snooze too.
In other news, I managed to wake up before 9 o’clock! As if that’s a big deal haha. I feel like I’ve done a lot more today than I usually do and it’s not even noon yet. Kept reading The Amber Spyglass, cleaned the bathroom, swept the house up, gamed a little bit, ate an actual breakfast; things are looking up!
The first dream I had I was in an Armageddon type movie, except when we launched into space, we were apparently attacked by the Russians? So our shuttle went down and we had to fight our way back to base… that was just weird as hell…
Another dream I had was a zombie apocalypse, which is a dream I have every once in a while. What made it was weird is that it was oddly enough taking place in the world of Deep Blue Sea. So Thomas Jane and LL Cool J were obviously there. Tom Jane is a pretty cool cat haha. I remember having a bat and two Quidditch Beater bats as well for some reason lol.
My last dream I was in a Chemistry class taught by Severus Snape. I was sitting next to Harry Potter himself and he was letting me cheat off his test. The thing that was even weirder about that was that Snape was asking test questions on Marvel superheroes? One question I specifically remember had a drawing of the Captain America suit and the question was “what are the odds of the Captain America suit looking like this for the upcoming movie?” Even WEIRDER was the answers were “never” and “never”, ????????????
So yeah, those were my super weird dreams.
