  • Mood:
I had a dream last night where I was at a huge store (like Walmart) with my dad and a bunch of people in my extended family. One of my little cousins got upset about something (though he looked like the little boy next door for some reason in the dream), so I asked if he wanted to take a field trip to the toy aisle. So we went there and were looking at games and stuff, and there were two people working there, a man and a woman. My cousin got excited about something and was a little jumpy, but wasn't misbehaving or acting wild. So the lady told him to go play somewhere else in a really condescending tone. Then she looked at me, as if I was his age too, and said, "That goes for you too." So I looked at her and said, "You go play somewhere else," stuck my tongue out at her, and walked away. And then my relatives apparently drove off, leaving me in the parking lot. I found that dream amusing.

I also dreamed that I was in high school again, and every week I'd spend Mondays at a preschool. And the assigned teacher parking lots had their names and job descriptions written on them. For some reason I keep having these dreams that I'm still in high school, even though I graduated over 5 years ago. They usually have the same two themes:
1) It's the first day and I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm trying to find my locker and figure out what classes I have, and there's always a giant mess of stuff either in my backpack, locker, or on the floor, that I'm trying to gather up and take with me, and I'm running out of time, and the mess never seems to get smaller.
2) The bus is coming, and I'm trying to hurry up and get ready - getting dressed, putting stuff in my backpack (usually endless mounds of stuff too), that sort of thing. Or I'm trying to catch the bus and I seem to slow down as time races around me (the theme of me slowing down appears in other unrelated dreams too).

I've been having dreams like those for the last 10 years or so, but in the last couple weeks, they've been very frequent. I bet it's because my sister has been stressing out a lot over the new school year. I also have a general idea about what the dreams mean. But maybe if I clean my room the dreams will go away...

Also, I downloaded the first season of Hell's Kitchen and have been watching those episodes. So last night, after watching some, I went down to the kitchen to eat something. My mom asked if I wanted some canned soup. So I thought, "I want risotto and lobster spaghetti and beef wellington, even though I don't like lobster and beef!" But I settled for plain old boring canned vegetable soup. Maybe I'll make risotto today, even if it probably won't be fancy and up to Chef's insane standards...

    Well, NaNoWriMo is over. In one way, I failed to meet my original goal, but I didn't fail epically, and I did make good progress. The original goal…
