Whenever I needed to talk to somebody my mouth would fill with a giant wad of gum and I wasn't able to say anything. I started to spit it out but whenever I spit any out more would just appear in my mouth. Eventually I would give up on trying to talk to somebody and right when I did that the gum would disappear. Then it would start all over again when I wanted to say anything. It was impossible to communicate with anyone. Then I woke up.

This morning my cousin told me that I was talking in my sleep last night. Full sentence conversation for about 5 min. She couldn't remember everything I said, but some of it was about elevators and food. I don't remember what I was dreaming about either.

My whole extended family was hanging out on the porch of our cottage and there were tons of instruments laying around. There was also one random guy there. He was a 7 foot tall African man with tribal looking clothes on and he was holding a drum. I asked him if I could play it, and he said I could, but then I would have to lead the parade. So I grabbed the drum and walked out the door. Everyone started playing their instruments and followed me out the door and down the beach along the edge of Torch Lake. As we passed cottages the people inside would run out and join our parade. Eventually I made it all the way around Torch Lake and everyone on the whole lake, thousands of people, were following me. Everyone had instruments and we were making a giant ruckus and making awesome music. Then I woke up.

I have a very vivid dream that lasted quite a long time and the only thing I was doing was cleaning the drain of my bath tub. I was pulling out nasty hair and old chunks of soap and bandaids. It was basically a really gross dream.

Date: 6/27/09

I went threw a car wash and cleaned my car. Then my mom and I went shopping I found some really awesome clothes for really cheap and bought soooo much. It was the best day ever. Then I woke up and couldn't find anything I wanted to wear. It was really disappointing.

Date: The day prior to my graduation open house

My mom woke me up one morning earlier than usual. It was raining outside really hard. She informed my brother John and I that we couldn't continue on with our lives because the school board just called and we were missing some of our credits from 2nd grade. We were both in college in my dream, so this seemed like late notice to say the least. Fortunately we only had to go back to 2nd grade for one day.

2nd Grade in my dream was much different than how I remember it in real life. It was held in a warehouse that was full of metal shelves holding old broken down toys. The ground was concrete and there holes in the walls and ceiling. The rain was dripping through in some parts of the warehouse.

John and i were playing with the old toys for a while and our temporary teacher was praising us on our ability to get along with the kids and share. I don't think she really realized we were about 10 years older than her other students.

Eventually I pulled out my old Woody and Buzz toys from my own childhood and started to play with them. The other kids ran up to me and wanted to play with them also. They were the only toys in the warehouse that weren't broken. I asked them not to play with my Woody and Buzz because I didn't want them to break. They are really important to me. The kids didn't like this answer though and they grabbed them from me and started to rip them apart and smash them. I was really upset and returned to my 2nd grade ways and started to cry.

John was angry that the other kids did that to me and he started to beat the other kids up. It was like an action movie and John was fighting off about five kids at a time. Finally when the majority of the 2nd graders were lying on the ground with broken arms and bloody noses our teacher told us to sit in the corner while she called our parents. My mom came to pick us up and the teacher told her we were expelled and didn't get our credits.

Then I woke up.

You know how when you were kid you played the game where you couldn't touch the floor and if you did you died? Well last night i had a dream where I was in this huge room with about 3 other people i've never met before and we literally couldn't touch the ground. If we did we would die, but it's not like in the dream the ground was lava or anything. It was just normal carpet but the threat of death was all too real. We were moving along the walls on chairs, the baseboards, bookshelves, anything. After making it around a corner, the girl in front fell off a chair and hit the ground. She lay there twitching and dieing before our eyes and we all screamed and cried. No, we didn't really know this girl but somehow we had all formed a bond and now one of our own was dead. After a while we decided we needed to keep moving. I don't really know why we felt the need to keep going. We weren't running from anything or trying to get anywhere. There was no real need to move, but in our minds it was very important. At one point my foot slipped from a side table and I started to fall. I grabbed onto a picture hanging on the wall and hung there for a while. Then I woke up.

My fellow tennis captains and I are going to kidnap the varsity team at 5:00 AM to take them to breakfast before school starts. To make life a little easier I had a sleep over so we would all be at the same location at that time. Little did I know Angela talks in her sleep....loud. I woke up to "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!" almost as if Emily Rose was sleeping 2 feet away from me and not a tiny little brunette who has a fantastic serve. Needless to say....it was creepy as hell.

Basically I was working backstage at a play, and my job was to do the curtains. I messed up every time and it was either the wrong backdrop or the curtains were open when they were supposed to be closed or vise versa. I didn't know what I was doing and I was just given the job about 3 min before the show started. Eventually I got so stressed I just curled up in a cardboard box in the middle of the stage and shut the lid and took a nap. When I woke up from the nap in the dream I woke up in real life.

My Date With God

God asked me on a date last Sunday night,
And I'll admit it was a bit awkward.
I hadn't talked to him since the Big Fight,
And lacking in belief, wasn't assured.

I wasn't close enough to him to be
At ease, and he kept looking through the dust
Upon my heart and soul, and I could clearly see
That he was troubled by my lack of trust.

He asked me why I left and I replied,
I couldn't stand the hate of those that say
They love thy neighbors true and always tried
To follow His good teachings and The Way.

"They hate and beat and slander gays! They lie!
Those are your kids!" "I know" He said, and cried.

I was coming home and i parked in the driveway. The garage was open and my dad was working on his workbench and was obviously pissed off. I walked up and asked him what was wrong and said "nothing. go inside! i'm busy." so i went inside, and noticed a strange man sitting on our family room couch. He was wearing a black top hat and a red and white striped dress shirt and a black vest. He was holding two chimps on him lap and talking to them. I was confused so i went into the kitchen to ask my mom what was going on. she said she didn't want to talk about it and that i should go do my homework or something. I was about to go, but i noticed, Grace, my dog was sitting on our kitchen table. I started to pet her and then she turned into one of the chimps. I love monkeys so i asked mom if we could keep one but she told me no, the man was leaving right now. He came into the kitchen scooped up the chimp and walked out the front door. As he was walked toward his car i went to the front door to look out and the chimps were looking over his shoulder at me and smiling and waving. Then I woke up.

I was at my church in the children's room but it was about 5 times bigger than the actual one. There was a cabinet on one side of the room that was kind of tilted forward so when you opened the doors everything started to fall out. It was full of toys and I opened it and grabbed some small wooden pieces of something. I wasn't quite sure what it was. There was bathroom connected to this room so i went in the bathroom and started to put together these small pieces and they ended up making a little buzz lighter. It connected to the end of an electric toothbrush so when you turn the toothbrush on buzz spun. I did this and got really excited. Then I brushed my teeth. Then I woke up.

There's a Tim Horton's down the street from where I live. In my dream this Tim Horton's was a Panera. I really small one with about 2 booths. My brother John, my friend Em and I all went in one morning and we were in a huge rush to get to a motorboat rally on time. I have no idea what a motorboat rally is... but i guess it's important. John got a GIANT tuna sandwich, Em got a bagel and I couldn't decide what to get. The ENTIRE dream was me looking at the menu and freaking out. Then I woke up.

This was a really weird night of dreaming for me because i had 3 different dreams in one night and i remembered them all.

In the first one i was hanging out in my bedroom and a cat walked in. It was black and white and it had unusually spiky ears. It jumped at me and grabbed my arm and wouldn't let go. I tried to shake it off but I couldn't get it off me so i started to hit it against my wall. It still wouldn't let go, so i just gave up and let my arm hang limp at my side, the cat still hanging it. Then my own cat, whiskers, (who i totally HATE) walked in my room and started talking to me. (you know how in movies they animate the real animals to make them look like they're talking? This is how my cat looked). Whiskers said "You see Addie? Not all cats are mean." and I was like "What? That doesn't make any sense. This cat is attacking me!" and then Whiskers said "But i'm not am I?"

In the next dream I was up north at my cottage and my brother Will decided he wanted to go for a sail on his MC. He started sailing but i guess he got lost or something because he went missing for 2 weeks. My dad started freaking out and came to get my brother John and Me to go out looking for him on a motorboat. John and I were at a little barber shop in Bellair at the time and we were getting chicklets from those candy dispensers. Dad came running in and was like "We need to go find Will! He's lost! Come on!" but John and I said we were way too busy with the candy machines. It's not like we really didn't want to go. We were terrified for Will, but somehow in our minds, being too busy with candy made perfect sense.

In the next dream I was up north again, and I was trying to sneak into the girls room at the cottage. I was climbing through the window well and I was trying not to wake up Annie, my cousin, who's bed is right under the window will. Lora, my other cousin's bed is right there too, but instead of Lora being in that bed, an African girl with a shaved head and tribal markings on her was there instead. This seemed odd and I looked out into the girl's room and it was part jungle part girls room. There were leaves everywhere and the floor has grass covering it, and there was a lion sleeping in the bathroom. I tried sneaking past Annie and the African girl but the girl woke up and started chasing me with a spear. I knew if I got to my bed (usually just about 4 feet away from the window well) I would live, but my bed was about 20 feet away. I started running.

Then I woke up.

It started out with my mom and I in Macy's looking for dresses for me. I HATE dress so I was obviously having a terrible time, but my mom was really excited. I guess I needed a dress to go to my friend Zack's house for dinner, which doesn't really make sense because if i was just going over for dinner i wouldn't need a dress. Anyway i was just wandering around, not having a good time and my mom wasn't shuting up about how i needed to get pretty and maybe we should buy me new underwear...blah blah blah and i wasn't really listening. Then i saw this little space between a wall and a pillar that lead down some stairs to some other clothes. They looked like cool clothes, graphic t-shirts and jeans etc. So i tried to squeeze through the gap but there was a table in my way full of board games. Finally i got through and then there weren't any clothes anymore, there were ONLY board games so i was kind of disappointed. My mom followed me down and we started looking around. This room lead off to a different hallway that we walked down and it turned into a skylight room with glass rooms lining one wall and benching going down the hall kind of like in a museum. I realized this was a jazz museum because in the glass rooms were not artifacts of jazz musicians but the actual musicians sitting in chairs playing instruments and you could go up and listen to them. It was almost like a zoo. I listened to music for a while but i eventually wandered over to one of the benches and sat down. On the bench was a pop up book all about vegetables. I started reading it and picking up the flaps and messing with tabs and everything. On one of the pages there was potato that you lifted up a flap and Ellen Degeneres's voice said "POTATO!" in French.
Then I woke up.

I was at my dorm at CMU (I'm a senior in high school now and I'm planning on going there next year) and I had to wake up early for something. I needed to blow dry my hair but I didn't want to disturb my roommate, so I decided to do it someplace else. I went out the the chicken coops on the lawn in from of the building (I don't know why there were chicken coops) and dried my hair in one of those. When I was finished I quietly went back to my dorm room to find that chickens were attacking my bed. I guess I woke them up or something. My bad.

i've been too stressed to dream...

Saturday, January 31, 2009

I don't remember this dream as vividly as many of my other ones, but i'll give this description a try.
It started out with kind of a Wizard of Oz type feel to it. A magical land, with weird creatures. Maybe even a Narnia. I was in a large field and there were a bunch of these animal type things all over. They could all talk also. I was hanging out with a couple of them, but I can't describe them at all. Then I remember there was a hot air balloon and we were in it, but then the basket disappeared, and there were just a couple of ropes coming off the bottom and we were clinging to them. The balloon dropped us off in the field, and we started chasing after this thing that I guess was a bad guy. We caught him and we were holding him down. Then it started raining popcorn and for some reason we thought that if we shoved as much popcorn as possible into the bad guy's mouth we would win. So we proceeded to run all over catching as much popcorn as possible and filled the bad guys mouth with it. We defeated him and so we sat and ate cotton candy (I don't know where we got it) and then i woke up.

Here are some new little notes I found by my bed when I woke up:

Hey! Stop it! Glitter.

Babies came flying

Also, I remember part of a dream about skydiving...

My dad was driving a car, and my mom and I were in the back seat. Nobody was in the front seat. He started driving through a drive-thru but then it turned into a country road. My chest starting hurting really badly so i laid down in the back seat and tried to sleep. I couldn't fall asleep so I ended up just looking at the car's floor. Then a tiny turtle came out from under my seat and was walking around the floor of the car. It looked like a snapping turtle, with the spike-ish head, but it was about the size of half of my fist. I picked it up and was looking at it, but then it jumped from my hand and started to walk under the front seat. I didn't want to tell my parents about him for some reason. Then I started to focus on how much my chest hurt still and how much pain I was in. Then I woke up... with heart burn.

My brother John and I were going to Alaska to go camping. We started to gather food from an abandoned kitchen to get ready. We found a lot of pizza crusts, a cup of chili, and a package of sour patch kids. We put all of this in a pillowcase, grabbed a lot of clothes because i guess Alaska is supposed to be cold or something? :) Anyway, when we got there we set up a tent and got in. It was really really cold, and we ran out of food quickly. We tried to leave in the car we got there with, but it was out of gas. There was no way for us to leave. We died. Then I woke up.

I went to the mall with my brother john, but i've never been to this mall before. We went to a lot of stores that i usually hate, like stores with dresses and stuff. One of these had a dress that was completely covered in white powder...like power sugar or something. It was really weird. Then john wasn't with me anymore. Somebody was, but it wasn't john, and i never got to see their face. Eventually I made my way to a music store that was renovated from a clothing store, so people went into the changing rooms to listen to music... kind of like the things you find in a museum. The walls were completely covered in graffiti and posters. When i first walked in the was a wall with things you could buy like a red, green, and yellow knit hat, a dred wig, wallets, and belts. After you walked past all of the changing rooms there was a small room at the end that people can get there hair cut at. My friend Jess was working there. I said hi to her and we talked for a little bit. She said she was absolutely terrible at giving haircuts, but she was new, so they haven't fired her yet. Then all of a sudden i was in a different store. I didn't walk to it or anything. It was bedding store for the younger generation. Not little kid, but like teenagers. There was a girl there I know from marching band. She plays the trumpet, and she's a freshman. I don't know her name, and i've never really talked to her before so it's weird she was in my dream. I was following her around the store on a skateboard (that the store also sells) which is also strange because i don't know how to ride a skateboard. I stopped following trumpet girl and just started to skateboard around the store, and i one point i passed a girl i know named Erin. She was describing the pillows she already owns so the store lady could help her choose another one. As i passed her she shouted out "hey addie! Go redwings!" and i waved and moved on. Now, i don't watch hockey, but if i did i guess i would cheer for the redwings, but... i don't watch hockey. Anyway i stopped skateboarding and looked at the bottom of the skateboard i had been on. It was a shimmering bird with a flower...something that a 5 year old girl would love. I decided to look at some others the store offered to buy one of those if they were cool. I looked around for someone working there and a teacher from my school, Ms. Ranke came up and offered to show me more skateboards. As we were walking to them i saw another teacher Mrs. Hager. She was kind of blocking our way, so Ms. Ranke said "Please move Hager." with which Mrs. Hager responded "Please put a Mrs. in from of that. Don't give me that look, it's the name i've been given." Finally we made our way over the skateboards and Ms. Ranke said "I don't know if you're going to like this, but it's one of my favorites. It's a make your own skateboard picture in glow in the dark! It comes with a camera that takes a picture in glow...." but i stopped her because it sounded stupid. Then my alarm went up and i woke up.

I was at marching band camp like i've done for the last 4 years and one of our activities was "the battle of the bands" so the students who had rock bands would compete and the students who didn't would just watch. I had a band (although i don't in real life) and we were getting our equipment together and then headed down to wear all the bands would set up. We went to my family's cottage's beach, but the beach extended out to the end of our dock instead of stopping near the beginning. There were about 7 bands that were on the beach and ours got set up last. I played drums for some reason even though in real life i can play guitar, bass guitar, and keyboards, but NOT drums. Anyway our band played first but i never got to find our who won because when our song ended i woke up.
