I was in a quiet little city and someone new there was talking about how nice it was when the train rolled through because otherwise it was eerily quiet around. Someone who'd lived there a long time commented that when the train rolled through it was so loud that you couldn't hear the music. When it was really quiet around and you listened closely you could hear the subtle sounds of the town and distant accordions playing a pleasant waltz.
I was at some kind of hacking related conference and they didn't have any chairs to sit in while watching presentations so everyone was supposed to bring a little mat to sit on on the floor. People would also sit on their mats in groups in the hallways and form little impromptu restaurants and stuff.
I was on a spaceship that I think was a school. I was new there, and I might have been from the past and dealing with futureshock. They were doing an improv night. There were these massive planet-sized space ships you could see out the window. When they travelled they left a glowing red swirl that tapered off into a point the direction they were going. My friend's sister worked on one of them. Every once in a while, all the students would go home to really normal suburban houses.
I was Bart Simpson and I had to leave home early to catch a bus, but ended up convincing Marge to take us to a volcano instead. Then I was at the store and decided not to buy anything but I didn't want to leave without anything so I got a pack of gum. The cashier opened up my gum and took a piece. Then I had a to go to a dinner with the landlord for a place I wanted to move to and everyone was trying not to make a mess so it wouldn't look like we were messy people who would be bad tenants.
I was traveling to a city on a light rail train. Someone announced over some loudspeakers that they were going to shut off the power in the surrounding area. They shut off the power but the train had enough momentum that it still got to the city. I'd forgotten to bring a jacket but I'd brought a laptop I had to uselessly lug around. I got off the train and when I went to put my mask on there was a little soccer ball in it.
I visited a small town in Florida where they had a giant castle that had collapsed in on itself, but you could still go inside and take tours of it. I didn't want to tour it but I needed to use their restroom so I went in. I ran into one of my friends there and apparently they knew the owner of the place. You were required to where a hat while you were in there and there were a bunch of random hats strewn about.
I lived on the fourth floor of an apartment building and decided to take the stairs, which ended up going through other people's apartments. There was some kind of bacteria I was supposed to try to grow that would grow in the shape of objects, but I didn't want to bother taking care of it. I watched a remake of Kung Fu Panda where it abruptly ended like 20 minutes into the film.
There was a big circle of people sitting and hanging out on the floor of a giant room. They were doing some kind of quiz contest and my group went first. The person running the quiz read all the available answers to choose from, but I wasn't paying attention. They refused to read the options again and spent a bunch of time adjusting their glasses. After a long time they reread them and I got the question wrong. A friend I haven't seen in a while was there and they thought it was kind of funny.
In the dream I hadn't been at home for a while and my bed changed while I was gone. I woke up in the dream very confused about where I was and wandered outside on a bunch of balconies. I ended up making a neighbor angry and when I eventually figured out where I was they took me to their wife and I had to explain that I didn't know what was going on and that I wasn't really sure what I did to make them angry.
I was staying in a camper out in the middle of nowhere. I went to visit a big house nearby that they used for events like family reunions. It had multiple floors that you had to travel through one at a time and it turned out that the whole place was a store that sold t-shirts and frozen food. I didn't want to get anything but one of my friends was there and they bought a bunch of food. There was also a frog in a sink somewhere.
This is where I share little bits and pieces from the dreams I have (or at least the parts I'm willing to share). Feel free to follow if that sounds interesting to you.
