Home Away from Homeless

June 29, 2017

I dreampt that I was at work and then I was driving home but I decided not to go home. I dreampt that there was a huge homeless shelter complex near where I lived and that i wanted to spend the night to see what it was like.  I already had a bag packed so I must have been thinking of doing this before I left that day.  It was dark when I got there and there were people just milling around outside and in this big, dark lobby area.  It seemed all the light came from the sign outside to the glass window where you apply for entry.  I had to fill out forms and the man asked me about things I had with me like if i has a sleeping bag or blanket. I had both.  I brought my cell phone but later realized I didn't have my charger. Honestly I don't know why they let me in because I'm sure I was still in my work clothes and I had a lot of nice stuff with me. I felt it was obvious that I wasn't really homeless.  I wasn't there to report on any thing it wasn't a social experiment. I checked my phone a lot and no one seemed to notice when I didn't come home.  I don't remember sleeping.  The next morning I found some people that I knew from work were there and also a lot of kids in general.  The building seemed much nicer during the day.  I had a job in the facility for at least that day but it was making change for people and I wasn't very good at it.  I think i left after that but I don't recall if I got car or how I got home or if I went back to my other job.

Nothing good

June 25, 2017

I dreampt my friends had a little bridge that was mostly made of 2x4s.  It wasn't very big and underneath instead of water there was straw.  I set the straw on fire which burned the bridge. I didn't stay to see how much damage was done. As soon as the straw caught fire I pulled up my hood and started walking downhill away from their house.  As I walked it got really dark but no matter where I went in the woods I could hear my friends talking about the bridge saying they couldn't get mad at the fire because it was natural like a storm.

I dreampt I packed clothes for work because I wanted to drive in my flip flops but when I got to work I realized I hadn't actually packed any other shoes. 

I dreampt my friend from another department who was now the security guard and she had a gun. 

I dreampt I went to a business but it was closed so I walked back to my car and as I did I got really sleepy and disoriented.  Eventually I began to crawl to my car and I kept narrowing missing things I didn't want to touch on the ground like poop.

Art imitates life

June 24, 2017

I dreampt I checked out some really titillating books from the library and they were fascinating but I was also horrified.  It was like a scary movie where I was curious but also sickened.  I wanted more books like them but I was afraid to take the books back to the library and have the staff see what i had borrowed.  Never mind that I could have just put them in the bookdrop. 

I dreampt I was going to run a race with someone and we were trying to make arrangements for where to leave our cars in the neighborhood nearby but my dog was with me and I had couldn't figure out where he should stay.  At one point I got the time of the race wrong and then later I left my dog in the car for a long time and felt terrible .  In my dream we never go the the race or at least i woke up beforehand.

I dreampt I was at a deli that was part of a restaurant that was downtown in a big city.  I was startled to see a treat I had wanted for some time and I got so excited that I cried. I paid in cash and it took a long time time because i kept finding foreign currency in coins in my purse.

I took my dog for a a walk at an apartment complex I used to live in and while we were walking i realized i had another dog.  We went home I found I had a three legged blonde/tan girl dog who was waiting at the top of the stairs for us.  Then I went to my art class but I had a really hard time because I didn't have any inspiration and we were supposed to have written a four page story ahead of time to base the visual project on but I didn't know about that part or just didn't do it.  We had to make something 3D.  Mine was going to be huge, taller than me but then i found out the due date so i changed mine to more like a shoe box.  It was supposed to have all these layer represented time and history and growth in the story.  We had to finish the work at home but i didn't have any of the supplies.  suddenly it seemed like it was time to go and we all went next store where some people and myself had to work at the coffee shop while other students got more time to work on their art. this was about the time my dog woke me up.

Puzzle Pieces

June 23, 2017

Last night was a lot of little bits.  I dreampt the library started to run a snow cone shop and it was a mess.  The ice maker was under the fridge and no one put water in it and the signs didn't make sense and no one had a menu.  Basically it was me not making people the drinks they wanted or handing them cups was sugar water.  

I dreampt a friend and I were refugees but in our country.  There had some a cataclysm so we couldn't just go home. I felt like we weren't that far from where we usually lived but we lived in this tiny apartment that I think was one room and a bathroom but it didn't have water or electricity.  Sometimes we got care packages from planes.  It was a strange experience because I think the apartment was from social services and i had never thought about how small the houses were but now that i was in one I didn't like it. 

I have a very common dream that repeats where I am in a school but I cannot find my classroom and the building is just enormous. At one point I looked down the stairwell and it was like the flyer throwing scene from 10 Things I Hate About You where the building just seemed to get bigger and bigger.
