The Giant Owl

April 27th, 2010- I was at my grandparent's house (dad's side) with my mom. Walking around the left edge of the pond was the guy from Dirty Jobs, with a fishing pole. He caught a fish quite fast… I remember pointing out what type of fish it was, but I don't remember what I said it was. My mom was moving the big things you light and put outside (looks like bamboo with a candle on top) to keep bugs away into her car. I noticed a HUGE owl sitting on a WAY high up branch of a tree that was of redwood height. I was then bummed I didn't have my camera with me, but I still wanted to get a good look at it. I headed to the barn, where my grandpa was, to ask him if he had any binoculars I could use. He said yes and pointed to my left. He also said "Well, it must have been just the other day when that thing swooped down right at me". I looked to my left, and there were 3 pairs. I wasn't sure which would reach the furthest, as this owl was probably oh… 400-500ft away, so I looked for numbers on them and saw the highest was 5.7. I grabbed those. I hesitated getting a good look at the owl, just a bunch of quick looks as I kept hiding behind the barn's door a second after looking at the owl. The reason I was doing that is because the owl somehow noticed I was looking at it, and it kept looking at me. It eventually looked at me, hopped off the branch and started flying my way. I started to panic, and find a place to hide within the barn, but wasn't able to find a spot. The owl eventually showed up, flew into the barn, and prepared to attack me. I continued to panic, and woke up.

Will Smith + Tennis

Sept 30th, 2009- Played WIll Smith in tennis. He kicked my ass. Apparently he's even good at playing tennis without a racket… just his hands.

Yeah, I dreamt about Lost most of last night. Not surprised.

Vomiting Sphinx Tomb

April 15th, 2010- There was one very long dream, though I only remember parts of the very end of it. I was with a group of people at this point, and we all went inside of this giant sphinx thing like the ones in Egypt. Deep inside of it was a room with blocks to sit on, and we all sad. All four corners of the room had holes that lead up to who knows where, but they had some sort of liquid falling down along them. We all started to figure out what the liquid was, and everyone started to taste it. For some reason, everyone kept tasting it over and over, and eventually I figured out that it was vomit. We decided we needed to get out of there, so we moved on. Moving forward took us to a very slippery floor which turned into a large, downward-slanting ramp which was also covered in this 'vomit', therefore it was slippery as well. As we all quickly slid down this ramp, we had to avoid hitting pillars that came down from the ceiling. It reminded me of a parking garage with the pillars and ramp and all, though the ramp was at a much greater angle. As we all slid down, avoiding the pillars, I heard a woman yell out to a younger boy seeming amused by some books the boy was reading for a class, who then yelled back saying his class is awful. We reached the bottom, and were out of the 'Sphinx tomb'. As I walked across some sand over to some people, I saw one of the people's (who had been in the tomb with us) head pop through a sarcophagus that was about 10 feet away. Moments later, the setting changed. It was my mom, sister, and myself in a small, dark room of some sort. I got my 'iPhone radio' for all 3 of us to listen to what was going on with the people who were in the 'Sphinx tomb'. It was like it was a story, or a show of some sort.

"Shirt 'chute flyin"

April 9th, 2010- I was in my old neighborhood I was in back before 2nd grade. DJ was there with me. I remember throwing a basketball around, me attempting to shoot some hoops, and failing to make any of them. It was extremely windy outside. I took this to my advantage, pulled my shirt out so the wind would catch the inside of it, got a running start, and started flying forward around 4 feet off the ground. I kept trying to do this without it ending due to lack of the wind's force in my shirt, as I felt like I could fly around wherever and for however long I wanted once I got started.

There was another vivid dream I had last night as well, though I put off writing this for too long today and forget. If it comes back to me, I'll update this entry with it.

Restroom & Surf Board Exercise

April 6th, 2010- A couple of shorter dreams last night (though they don't seem all that short when you look at how much I wrote because of the details I tried to include).

What I remember from the first dream is that I was in what I'm guessing to be a high school, probably because of a marching band competition or something since I remember seeing a marching band around somewhere. A bunch of people including myself had to use the restroom, and so we all went into this restroom (which was a bit bigger than a normal high school restroom) where there were a lot of people seemingly 'hanging out' in there. There was one guy in there who had a spray of some sort, that he was spraying into his eye. It was a drug of some sort apparently. Some other people and I left the restroom to go let some people know what was going on in there, though we saw some police men already heading that way, so we headed back. We all stood outside the restroom to hear what was going on, and all I know is that the guy who was spaying the stuff in his eye was going nuts in there, but eventually calmed down and was taken out of the restroom. I headed back in, because I had had to pee pretty badly for awhile, though when I got in, I didn't feel like I had to pee anymore. That is all I remember from this dream. I also wrote down "Dennis" on the post-it when I woke up from that dream, so apparently Dennis was with me and played an important role in the dream somehow. I don't remember any of that though.

The second dream started out at my grandparent's old house, though my grandparents were not there. I was there with my mom and her boyfriend Michael. I remember there being some random Christmas decorations even though it wasn't that time of year. One being one of those Santas that stand up, and it was at waist height, as well as its head would move back and forth. But the thing is, it wasn't a Santa. It had a snowman head. I noticed that and was wondering why my mom would have put a snowman head on it instead, and found it pretty odd. My mom had just left the house when the dream started I think, and Michael was inside getting ready to head outside. He then went outside to the backyard, which had a walkway which lead to a platform around 30 feet from the house. I followed him out there for some reason onto the platform, and there were other people around that I knew. I then realized Michael was about to lead some exercises of some sort with all these people. The few guys around me on the platform were people I didn't particularly like in high school who were a year or two older than me (one of those few died a couple months ago). One of them started messing around with me faking kicks at me. I grabbed his foot and started to twist it when he then went along and did a flip, like I was the one who had done it to him. He was playing around, and I was actually quite amused and found him to be quite pleasant, though in real life I do not feel that way. Anyway, I then headed back to the house, since in the dream I still had ME/CFS and wasn't going to take part in the exercises. As I headed back, I saw everyone run to the sides of the yards to where 'surf boards' were. Apparently there was some 'surf board' exercise. When I neared the back door, they had put these 'surf boards' onto stands (which made them look like ironing boards.. haha). There was some sort of ribbon or tape blocking off the back door, so I either had to go over it or under it to get through the door. I stood there for about 5 seconds trying to figure out if I'd rather go over or under, and Steve Ross (who was standing next to Taylor Campi) ended up telling me to go under. I did that, got inside, and tried to shut the door, but it wouldn't close all the way. There was a huge grasshopper in the way of it. I opened the door and tried to get it out of the way, with the help of Steve and Taylor. Don't remember anything after that. For this dream, I also wrote down "GGM". I don't remember where that came in, I just remember it had something to do with Michael. Like.. Michael 'was the GGM', whatever that means.

Pet Jungle Black Death Obstacle!

April 5th, 2010- I started out with my dad in Pet Jungle (a local pet store that closed down last year). I was in there for a bit, though I'm not sure why. I didn't seem to be looking for anything, so I was probably just visiting. Some kid I used to skate with sometimes back in the day named Jackson was there, though I think he was actually supposed to be my dad's girlfriend's son Anthony. Shortly after Jackson showed up, we left Pet Jungle and got in the car. I was sitting in the front passenger side. My dad and Jackson got in the back seats, and my dad then told me to drive. I got angered and told him no. I can't remember if he said he was kidding or if he just then ended up driving anyway. We eventually ended up somewhere else, where I came across what was apparently a familiar building. It was an interesting all-black building, that for some reason 'chapel-like' comes into mind, even though I don't really know what it looked like from the outside. All I know is there was a walk out part that was not on the ground, and there was what seemed to be a very large steeple. The middle of the church was a small circular area, which was probably the inside of the large 'steeple' area. There was also much black inside. I went inside this building into the small circular area, which was empty and I was just looking around. I turned around to head back out, and I was startled by something blocking the door. It looked sort of like death (black robe, and was pretty much a skeleton). Frightened, I eventually fell through something and ended up on a chain, which went across in the middle of a large dark room. Beneath me was a big pit of complete darkness. Around me I could see more of the 'death-type' looking people floating around. On one side of me there was another chain swaying back and forth over this pit of darkness, which then was closer to a ledge that lead to another room. On the other side was the same thing. A loud, widespread voice then came and told me I needed to choose which side to go to, and if I choose the wrong one, I will die. I chose a side, grabbed the next chain and eventually ended up on the next ledge. When I got to the ledge, I walked a few feet, and the voice then scolded me telling me I chose the wrong side. The floor behind me disappeared, and I was forced to jump off the ledge I was on. The area that I jumped to was a long fall, which I could see the bottom of. If I hit, there's no way I could have survived. I ended up falling through a very small hole (but obviously large enough for me to fall through) that was in one spot of the floor. Apparently I got lucky and survived that obstacle by falling into the safe spot. As I was falling through that, I then ended up falling even further down, into another large area that was very dark and below me was complete darkness, which was then what I needed to avoid falling down next to survive. There was a large rope with an anchor at the end coming from above, which I was able to grab as soon as I got close to it. Next to that was a very sketchy wooden platform which would have most likely taken me to another area I'd have to find a way to get through. Holding the rope with my feet on the hook of the anchor, I swung myself so I could then jump onto the wooden platform. I started following where the platforms would take me. I started to hear something that was a constant chirp of some sort, that seemed like it was stuck on repeat. I also started to become very annoyed with how very dark it was, as it was difficult for me to see where I was going. I thought to myself "Hey, I bet turning up the gamma would help!". This whole scene then 'zoomed out' to me being at my computer, searching for the menu key on my monitor to increase the gamma so I could see better. The dream ended. The noise that seemed stuck on repeat was a bird I heard outside that was singing the same tune over and over.
The things about my dreams is that for awhile they've been seeming to end very suddenly and while I'm in the process of doing something in the dream. Hm. I wish they would continue and not end like that, even if some of them are not fun dreams.
