Knifes and Mistresses

The night before last I experienced two dreams that I was able to remember.  They were both disturbing in their own way, I am not entirely sure what inspired them, but I was glad to be out of both of them.

In the first one I was in line for a college registration, or something, and the college gave each person an identification number and we had to put ourselves in the correct order according to our number in line.  My section of numbers got out of order because someone took a wrong turn in the corridors that we were walking through.  Because of this, when we got to an area where someone was checking our numbers we were told to get into our correct spot, this was difficult for me because I do not like to be in embarrassing situations like this.  Once we finally got to our spot this one girl was being mean to another girl about her lack of make up, so I asked her if she was ever comfortable enough with her looks to go out in public sans makeup and she just sneered at me, which was an answer in itself. When we got up to a certain area we had to go through a metal detector and my bag scan detected something wrong so it was opened by a guard and there was a crazy, killer knife set in there.  I swore that it was not mine and must have been planted.  I was sure that the mean girl from before set me up.  The issue wasn't resolved and that is about when I woke up, which I was relieved to do as I did not want to deal with the fallout even in my dream.

The second dream was also really upsetting.  Jonathan, my husband, was married to another woman and I was his mistress.  His wife didn't live with him but at her own apartment while I lived with him and acted as his rightful wife.  We were having a party at his wife's apartment with our friends and two of our friend's kids came out fighting about a loaded handgun that they were tug-of-warring with.  I am not sure how we knew it was loaded, but that is just the way dreams work I guess.  Everyone was freaking out and I was the nearest so I managed to get it away from them but it was really scary as I was not sure that in the process they were going to accidentally shoot one another or myself.  Then my family came over to the party and asked me about why Elyse had a fat little dog (for some reason they thought that the apartment was my sister-in-law's apartment) and I explained that it belonged to Jonathan's wife.  I don't know in the dream if they already knew that Jonathan and I were not really married, but I told them as if they did, but immediately realized that Jonathan and I had to talk about what to tell people about his wife.  This was at the end of the dream and I remember also wondering and needing to ask if Jonathan had sex with his wife.  The weirdest thing about the mistress part of this dream was that in the dream I didn't care at all that Jonathan had a wife, I wasn't jealous, I understood the reasoning and was okay with it.  I don't exactly know what the reasoning was, though.

Bad Blogger

So, this is me apologizing for being a horrible blogger.  I really love my crazy dreams, and I have been having a few, but I have been forgetting to share them.  Here are a few that I have had recently.

The night before the night before last, so two nights ago, I had a dream where I was with a group of people and we were out in the woods somewhere.  I am not sure about the details, where exactly we were or who the people I was with were, but I seemed to be running or hiding from something.  At one point I had a person who had just died with me, and I needed to get this person to an old woman who was rumored to be in the woods who would be able to help bring my comrade back to life.  I finally found the old woman and she was so old she was a dry husk of a creature.  She almost looked like a shrunken mummy.  She was able to help bring my friend back to life, but it used up the last reserves of her strength.  So to repay her kindness, I was then tasked to take her to an area in the woods that would help her heal.  I don't know if I ever made it to this new area to heal the woman as I woke up, but I do know that it was not looking likely as I was still being pursued.

The night before last I had one of those dreams that are really aggravating, but nothing serious happens.  I was going to a movie theatre with all of my high school graduating class.  We were each bringing something food wise to share while we watched the movie and I was bringing fruit.  For whatever reason my fruit was on a platter made from cheap paper plate material, so the moisture from the cut up fruit was making the platter flimsy.  By the time I made it to the theatre, I had lost almost all of my fruit.  I was left with a handful of grapes and a few orange slices.  I am not sure what the purpose of this dream was, but I woke up feeling extremely annoyed.

Last night I dreamt that I was in a beach house with random people.  I don't know why we were there, or what we were doing, but I know at some point people were there with me but then they decided to leave.  I was going to lock up the house and meet them wherever we were going.  As I was now alone and getting ready to lock up, I noticed that something was trying to get into the house.  I have no idea what it was.  As I am trying to remember all I can envision is someone looking like Sloth from The Goonies, but I think my brain is just making that up.  The part of the dream that is most clear to me is that I am trying to close broken doors that lead to a sun room, but they aren't closing properly.  It is at this point that I can clearly see the person or thing coming after me and they are trying to cajole me into letting them in, but I know it is a trick and that they just want to hurt me.  I woke up shortly after this, but I cannot exactly remember where it stopped.

Hopefully with the summer upon me I will be better at making sure I write down my dreams as I wont often be waking up to alarms and the rush to get to class.
