I had the strangest dream last night.
I was at school, a college mayhaps, in Pennsylvania. But a war started there, and they started killing everyone. A bomb went off nearby where I was standing, but for some reason I knew it was about to go off, so I started running the opposite direction. I kept booking it, passed underneath a huge tree, then found myself next to a large reservoir. Two other people were there, panicking as to where to go. There was a huge vehicle manning about the campus, killing off anyone who might be alive still. Then I remembered (from an earlier part of the dream) that the Appalachian Trail was a short walk - or in our case, run - away from the reservoir. So we ran over there and started the trek. We decided we could never return to Pennsylvania because the drones would find us (apprently the school bombing was not just a massacre, but some sort of search-and-destroy mission). We fished our phones out of our pockets and turned them off so as to not track our locations. (I kept thinking that just in case they COULD still track us, to make a side trip and leave the phones somewhere so they find themselves on the wrong path for our true location. We also of course, then, did not use any credit cards or the like, as they could also be used as tracking devices. For some reason, the Appalachian Trail in my dream ran along the North border of the US. Our goal was to make it to Washington state (from PA! Jeez) and start our new lives there.
I didn’t have nightmares last night.
I only remember one part of my dream clearly; I was out with friends, walking through a forest. I found a little yellow, what-I-thought-was-a, flower. But as I was examining it, it started to fall apart. It was about 12-16 little yellow butterflies all folded in on one another. Then they all flew away.
It was fucking COOL!
It is 3:30 AM. Just woke up from an absurd dream and was apparently rolling all over the place in bed (which is uncharacteristic of me) cause the sheets were all fucked up and pillows and shit.
So, I was going on a trip somewhere with Nick or something, to see his siblings. Nick brought a female friend, which was totally fine, until I noticed he was being a whole lotta flirty with her. So it goes on for awhile, and I was okay with it, until it doesn’t stop so I go up to Nick and go like “hey dude. What the fuck?” And he just goes something like “Yeeeahh… my sister said that you and I aren’t really good for each other and I’m better off with someone more ____” (I don’t remember what the word was, but something like girlnextdoor homey-type that is super touchy feely crap). I lost my shit right there, blew up at him and booked it on out, and started searching the town we were in (which was an awesome cozy-like, stone-lay road town - think Olde City, Philadelphia, but way WAY quieter) for someone to drive me on outta there, so kinda hitchhiking. The whole rest of the dream I was gone and there kind of, simultaneously. Kept getting in arguments with Nick, getting upset, being confused, blah blah. I remember calling his new girlfriend “Jersey Shore”, hahaha. I don’t remember what the chick looked like at all, but I guessss she looked a little guido. Then Nikki hit me up to come hang out with her in Kutztown and we met at the grocery store and she bought some food and bought me sweatpants and a hoodie for some reason (with kutz emblems) and her total came out to like $1.31 or some shit for a whole lotta stuff and then I was wondering if there was cheese in the veggie burgers she got me and the lady working the register was all yep, there’s cheese, and then Nikki opened it and was like ripping it into pieces looking for the cheese and totally ruined the hell out of those burgers hahahah.
back to sleep. Just wanted to record that dream since I woke up seething and then kept thinking about it and rolling through it trying to place details, so I figured I’d just record it here.
Gotta be at work at 9 for cafe setup (I can’t wait to make a bigass soy latte I meeeesssthem!), then out and making a bunch of calls to places, errands, then going to see the farmhouse I might be moving into in a couple months! I found out last night that the neighbor (that Dave is friends with) has horses and would let me ride them once in awhile. YAY! Plus farmland plus being able to shoot outside plus it being far ish from the road plus on own again. So much goodness. :)
no nightmares last night, just good dreams.
repeats, at that. (why the fuck do I always get repeat dreams? does this happen to anyone else?)
the only part I really remember well, which is always repeated, is walking through this long hall, kind of museum like. it’s on the way to an airplane, or train, or some sort of mass transport. at the end of the hall, there’s a bunch of little gift shoppe type things, but at the beginning, it is magic. MAGIC!
there are loads of drawers, and all these trinkets inside of them. some is just stuff like seashells, but most of it is little pieces of the past. a lot of stuff from the ancient Egyptians (although I can’t remember what any of them specifically were - I have the worst dream recall. ever). you’re not supposed to take anything from the drawers, it’s just to look at, but in every repeat of this dream, I smuggle my favorite stuff out. This time I had a big winter coat on that had all sorts of secret pockets on the inside. (which would be sweet, by the way. I want a jacket with secret pockets, damnit!)
yup. ze end.
feeling better today. fam is coming over soon, so looking forward to that. then later, Shonen Knife free show at artsquest! huzzah
