@KazukiT Yep it was a pretty crappy week to say the least! XD I remember looking at my shelf and saw how many zombie games I own and thinking to myself "Huh. I should probably take a break from zombie stuff and play something less disturbing" lol

Also, once and only once, I woke up and the wall was a dark green color and had a rippling motion. This disappeared after a second, but it was really freaky.

I get a lot of dreams about school fairly often. Constantly seeing old high school friends, acquaintances, and crushes, which is basically just my brain reminding me of all the shots I never took back then, which feels like a gut punch every time.

In those dreams, I'm also usually put into some mildly stressful situation, such as completing some vague assignment before a very, very close deadline, or completely forgetting about a class in my schedule, or just getting hopelessly lost on campus grounds.

Have you tried reaching out to any of you high school friends in real life. Maybe talk with them and catch up maybe.

As for school I have had some school dreams too. Its always me forgetting my locket combinations and the bell about to ring. My locker is usually on the first floor while the class I need to go to is on the third.

I wouldn't necessarily say it was outright the scariest, but the worst dream I can recall having was one where I was stuck in a loop. Every time I would wake up and begin the day I would eventually realize something was wrong and wake up again. At first I wouldn't realize something was off until after i'd already driven to work and begun helping people there. Then the next cycle it would occur as I was driving to work. Then the next as I was getting into the car. Every time I'd swear I had actually woken up.

It all felt so real, so when something went askew, it felt like i was stuck in a broken reality, doomed to live the rest of my life in a world that didn't add up. And it just kept happening. It got to the point where I realized I was probably still dreaming, but because I had no control over it, there was nothing I could do. Rather than face the consequences of abandoning my daily tasks, I was forced to go through them knowing they were likely meaningless. Stuck in a conscious cycle of monotony, unable to comprehend if it would end.

When I did eventually wake up for real, the fog of fear and doubt immediately lifted. But the impact of the dream has stuck with me since. Sometimes in media a character is doomed to be stuck in a loop for eternity. I never used to be able to grasp the true weight of their fate, but I feel like I better understand it now. Sometimes the worst punishments are reserved to your mind.

That dream sounded like quite the experience. A dream making you question reality sounds like it wasn't very pleasant.

Oh, boy. In my case, the strangest part about my dreams is when they aren't odd, random, or non-sensical. There are times when I have dreams that are coordinated, logical or at least have a sequence within their context, as if someone was playing a film inside my head, or my brain was directing one.

Imagine if you will, a very tall tower made of beige or brown stone blocks. The tower is covered from the fifth floor upwards in dark clouds. Not rain clouds, but inky black clouds that swirl and do not let you see anything above the fifth floor, so it's impossible to ascertain its height, though it's possible to enter the tower and ascend a staircase that spirals upwards, the type that is stuck to the inner walls. Its name is The Tower of Deceptions, and whomever figures out how many stories tall the tower is, will gain both great knowledge and power, according to its legend. (This is important later)

Many warriors, adventurers, wisemen, conquerors and fools alike have thus ascended the tower for the purpose of measuring its height, but none have ever returned. It is unknown what happened to them; they're just never heard of again.

So, inside the tower, sitting on the first step of the staircase, is Lord Farquaad from Shrek, resting his chin on his closed hands, waiting for his men (The captain who was collecting fairy tale creatures and relocating them at the beginning of the film, and his company to be precise), who had taken the trip upwards, and had of course not returned yet.

From the right enters John Lithgow, who is the voice actor for Lord Farquaad, wearing a suit just like he did in 3rd Rock From The Sun, and asks Farquaad what's up (He knows of the riddle of the Tower and that Farquaad is there to try to solve it). Farquaad just shakes his head and sighs in defeat, as he has realized shortly ago that the whole attempt was in vain. Lithgow replies with an equally-disappointed nod, and sits on a crate without saying anything; the only thing that can be heard are the winds that keep the clouds swirling around the tower, and make its measurement impossible through any known means.

After a few minutes, John Lithgow stands up, looks upwards and raises his hands, having lost patience, and addresses the Tower itself in a loud and commanding voice: "Tower of Deceptions, spawn of the darkest night! I conjure you: Tell me how many floors tall you are!"

Lithgow remains in that pose for a few long instants, and not having received any response, lowers his hands, lightly slapping his thighs, and returns to sit on the crate, as Farquaad only grunts as if saying "I told you it was useless.", with the wind still blowing outside the only sound that can be heard.

One minute later, a chime indicates the receipt of a text message on Lithgow's cellphone, so the actor hurriedly stands up again and pulls it out from his pocket to read the message, that simply says "44". He then turns to look at Farquaad, who only raises an eyebrow in partial disbelief, as the winds start to die down and the dark clouds dissipate little by little, allowing for the light of the sun to shine and warm the surrounding area. It seems no one had thought of asking the Tower itself, ignorant of the fact there were no restrictions as of how to solve its riddle.

That's when I forced myself to wake up, so I wouldn't forget it. I've had other similar "well-written" dreams in later times, but this one is the most noticeable.

The last vivid dream I've had ticks all 3 boxes.

I remember being sort of controlled by an alien. It'd let me live my life, but it always monitored what was on my mind. I was exercising with a friend and in my head about the whole situation, and the friend in question noticed that I wasn't fully there so he asked me what's going on. I started formulating in my head the thought of the alien in my head when it just took control over my body. I couldn't feel anything, I could just see what was happening. It started making me lift and lift and lift, with no regard for my body's limits, until I blacked out and was hospitalized because my muscle just snapped.
The damage was very heavy, so I started thinking very hard about how mad I am, how I wish it left me alone because there's really no purpose in taking control of me.

Later, I was back in my room, still angry. I tried not to think too hard but quickly send a message to my friend explaining what's happening, I was quick enough to send the message before the alien reacted and took control again. It wanted to punish me for not staying quiet about it. So I watched myself roll the blinds up, open the window, and without a second of hesitation just jump off.

I woke right up when I hit the ground.

New scary dream part last night... (sorry for the stream of consciousness writing)

So I was a kid in Russia (maybe) and had a "memory" of having to pee in the forest. there were radiation detectors to detect radiation in the ground for some reason and near one there was a dead grey alien. Later on, I was at someone's funeral and there were two ufos floating watching. Another kid was constantly looking up at them, I told him to stop looking, the aliens would notice. I'm pretty sure the aliens had to do with the person's death. I told him I saw a dead alien in the forest, but could barely get it out of my mouth, so I had to write it in the snow. Later we went inside a house and into a room, the door closed and there was a grey behind the door waiting, it reached out and grabbed me.

Yesterday I made my first step towards eating more healthily.
I saw candy on discount and did not buy it.

I always told my DA fans how much I hate slot machines. They're fine in games as a risk-and-reward system. But when you're spending REAL MONEY in a Vegas casino to try and hit the jackpot (which very, very few people will), it can really hurt your budget. Gambling is a bad habit, and I don't like wasting my money on a slim chance. Go to Vegas for the experience, not the jackpot.
Took the kids to a corn maze. They gave us a map and had lights at certain points in the maze. Not overwhelming... or underwhelming... just... whelming.
