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.

There was this ditch full of water that people liked swimming in, except they'd never check whether it had water in it before jumping in and they'd always be relieved that it wasn't empty.

I was with a group of people living in a world where going outside was illegal. Everything around was an artificial facade obscurring the real world. We snuck out and were planning to go camping like we used to. There were some birds outside that kept trying to chase us.

I played some sort of computer game with other people. It was a side-scrolling puzzle game where on each level you had to find a door to the next level. It also had items you could get and on one level I traveled to another dimension and got some kind of lantern that that was forged in a way that it didn't didn't technically exist in the way normal physical matter does.

I got a whole pile of random stuff from a thrift store that all used to belong to the same person. Some of the contents included a bag of cat food with a large wad of cash inside and a wrapped up brick of something labeled "For Ned - Do Not Open". I visited the house of someone who was somehow connected to the original owner of the stuff but I never got a chance to ask them about who it all belonged to.

I had a bunch of blankets and a pillow set up in the middle of a sidewalk because I liked sleeping there sometimes. There was a comic that me and another person could edit the speech bubbles on and we sometimes used it to communicate.

I went to a highschool reunion that took place somewhere with a lot of confusing hallways. I kept trying to meet people who I never really talked to during highschool. There were also a bunch of demons hiding around somewhere. I met someone who I didn't even remember from highschool and they were pretty cool so I hung around with them for a while.

I was trying to work as a children's book author at the same time as being a programmer. As part of the writing process I decided to climb a mountain while carrying a shopping cart. A scout troop led by my highschool's choir teacher was also climbing the mountain. I got to the top and there was a little shack. Some people came out of it and someone started throwing flaming frogs out of it.


I was walking around outside and I thought about texting someone I'd dated in highschool and decided against it, but somehow I still did or they texted me or something but they didn't really say anything so it wasn't a big deal. Then I ran across one of my old neighbors and talked about why I can't eat at McDonalds and where power really exists in social interactions. Then I had to go and catch a spider with a jar.

I ran into someone I'd met previously at a party. Apparently I'd donated money to them at some point and they told me I'd accidently claimed it on my taxes during two different years. I realized that they were actually refering to a different time I'd given them money, back when they were older and I was Taylor Swift.

I went to some kind of ceremony and I wasn't sure if I was allowed to bring food in. I saw some friends I haven't seen in a while and I wanted to sit by one of them but someone else took that seat. I kept getting texts from someone, but I didn't have their real name in my phone, just some kind of abbreviation, and I couldn't remember who it was.

I was walking around a house and something kept setting of the fire alarm. It turned out to be something in the laundry room but no one seemed to be very concerned about it. It was cold ouside but there was a big heater that was leaking heat out of the house so there was a spot you could stand in near the house where it would be warm.

I was back in my highschool chemistry class except we were learning biology this time, even though I'd already taken a biology class. Someone entrusted me with a bunch of film negatives that showed they'd committed some sort of petty crime and they wanted me to go to the school's library to get the film developed.

I was watching a movie based on Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It didn't have any video game characters in it and it took place in some kind of simulated reality that the players could manipulate with their minds. Players got the upper edge on each other by recalling certain memories or getting their opponent to recall certain memories, which they would switch back and forth with the game world.

I went fishing in a swimming pool and caught a really weird looking fish that was almost as big as I was. I was going to try to catch more fish but we were out of lures.

I went to a climate change protest and there were a bunch of other people there for it but they left before the protest was even scheduled to start and I was the only one left. I went to go try to run an old interactive version of the movie "Jungle 2 Jungle". Then I went into a bathroom and tried to burn some plastic with a lighter, but the lighter wouldn't stop releasing propane and it started puffing up and I ran away because I thought it might explode.

I was at the store thinking about rotoscoped animation. I found out that someone had gone missing and the only bit of evidence was a piece of paper that was stamped with red ink. The stamp was normally of a person without a face but someone had drawn in a face. The cat was there too and he kept trying to jump on my head.

I was hiking in the desert with some people and we were walking up a trail that lead to a big flat area at the top. I was impatient so instead of taking the trail I climbed up some rocks. There were a bunch of small plants in the flat area and apparently some of the people I was with were botanists who wanted to gather edible plants and serve them at a café owned by another member of the group.

I was talking to someone about how newer school gyms weren't being built with the right sound absorbing walls and it made them echo a bunch. Someone had made a video where they played the recorder in an old school gym and a new school gym to prove it. I went to a history class and they mentioned Esperanto. One of my friends who speaks Esperanto was there and I talked to them a bit in it.
