I just had a strange dream earlier this week.  It was a little off-putting, but certainly not the worst dream I've ever had.

I was in a large classroom in a college class that looked like a room from my high school.   It was a history and geography class.  I remember the professor being a male, although I didn't recognize him or any of the other students in the room.  I saw written on the board: Monday the 12th, Test.  I thought to myself within the dream how far away that was.  The next moment, I was walking into the same classroom and I didn't realize it was the day of the test until I took my seat.  I did not study and totally forgot about it.  I woke up with a jolt.

I would frequently have school-related anxiety dreams back when I was actually enrolled in classes, but this dream came at an unusual time.

Last night I had a strange and really vivid dream.  I dreamed that I was in the mall, in a German style restaurant.  I wish this restaurant was real, since there was a huge bar with beers on tap, sofa like seats, and I remember seeing lots of soft baked pretzels and a huge stew pot with a goulash type stew next to one table.  I was sitting in this restaurant, when all of a sudden one of my friends calls me.  He says that he is in the restroom in a department store in the mall, and is out of toilet paper.  Within in my dream, I am aware that I need to hurry and find the bathroom my friend is in.  I somehow obtain a roll of toilet paper as I walk into the store and make my way to the bathroom.  In the store, I get confused and walk through many different rooms.  The first room has dark wood paneling and spotlights shining on women's clothing, the next room is much brighter, has white walls and fluorescent lights.  It has toys and Lego sets in it.  The final room I walk into looks like a dark dining room with a wooden table and 8 chairs around it.  The room is wood paneled and lit by a dim incandescent chandelier.  On the other side of this room is the door to the men's restroom.  I walk in and toss the roll of toilet paper over the stall door to my friend, mission accomplished!  Right after this, I am somehow back in the German restaurant.  I hear indistinct voices talking, and then I woke up.

This dream probably happened because I installed a toilet paper rack in my bathroom at the lake house the day before.  It's amazing how small cues during the day can be so influential in your dreams.

Last night, I dreamed that I was on a family trip to Las Vegas.  I remember the dream started with me in the back of my dad's car.  It seems like we drove at night and was a lot faster than it would actually be driving from South Carolina to Nevada.  The dream cut to my family and me sitting at a table in a large restaurant, looking out onto a busy road in Las Vegas.  The first thing I noticed is that there was a steep downward hill in the road outside.  Looked more like San Francisco than Las Vegas.  At the table, I noticed that my family and I were by ourselves while all the other tables were joined together.  I'm not sure why we were isolated, but I remember thinking to myself within the dream, what if these people think I talk funny, being far away from my hometown in South Carolina.  I suddenly felt anxious and self conscious and hoped I wouldn't have to talk.  (I consider it a vivid dream when I am aware of my thoughts within the dream, cool stuff!)

The next scene was me walking by myself to the hotel room.  The hallway was long, covered in red carpet, and had a steep downward hill, just like the street I saw earlier.  Strange, a hill inside a building Huh?  When I arrived at my room, I noticed that all of the furniture was huge.  I climbed up on the king sized bed, and it seemed like I had 4 feet of clearance between the baseboard and my feet (I'm about 6 feet tall IRL) The lamps on each side of the bed were too tall for me to reach, so the room was dark and shadows obscured where there would be a TV.  I was either in some kind of giant's room, or I had shrunk to 1/4 of my actual size.  I fell asleep on the bed, face down on the enormous pillow, and I woke up, in my normal sized body and bed.

This is my second vivid dream in about two weeks involving me in a strange hotel.  I'm not sure what that means.

Man I'm feeling short. I'm about 5 8 or 5 9. About average height. (I tippy toe on my motorcycle too)
But yeah... I think the only dreams I have where I'm small and my surroundings were huge, seemed to be only
the extremely steamy bathroom dreams I kept having. There was one dream where I remembered being in the entrance
area of a small square bathroom that had a ceiling that was about 16 feet high. There was a bright halogen spot light
at the middle portion of the ceiling-tile based ceiling, and really small brown floor tiles lit up by that halogen spot light.
The sink was about 8 ft away and to my right. The toilet cubicle area was to the right of the sink, 6 feet away from the sink... and
the shower area was to my left, about 4 feet away from me. The shower doors were about 8 feet tall and made out of glass. However, the
shower head was basically attached to the ceiling and humongous. I turned on the shower and the entire bathroom instantly steamed up
and that's when I woke up.

I dreamed that I was on vacation at a mountain resort.  I started out in a hotel room (I have lots of dreams about hotels for some reason  Huh?) I walked out of my room and down the stairs to the lobby.  The lobby was a large open-air room that had several tables and chairs with people sitting around drinking coffee and just talking.  I walked out and noticed a river leading to a waterfall at the edge of the mountain.  There were people swimming in the river because it was safe due to a row of boulders against the edge of the mountain.  I looked over the edge of the waterfall and could not see the bottom  Shocked  I did not fall or even feel afraid in the dream.  

The next scene, I was in a gift shop at the hotel looking at t-shirts. I wanted two t-shirts because I wanted to give one to one of my friends.  I was frustrated because the t-shirt I liked only had one in large (we both wear a large size shirt)  I didn't buy the t-shirt and went to get ready to go home.  When I put my suitcase in the trunk of my car, I remember thinking about being careful with the glass whiskey glasses in my suitcase, and not throwing the suitcase or slamming the trunk too hard.  I got into the backseat of my own car  Huh? and then I woke up.

I often dream about being in my grandparents' house.  My most recent dream about their house involved me rearranging the furniture in the bedroom I usually sleep in at their house.  I moved the bed so that I could lay in it and see out the door and into the hall.  I moved the dresser in front of the closet door, making the closet inaccessible.  I walked down the hall to do the same thing in another bedroom, but the bed was too heavy for me to move.  The last thing I remember from this dream is looking under the bed to find a place to hold onto and lift. 

Dreams about beds, perhaps it means I am feeling tired and worn out IRL.

I had a really detailed dream last night, a dream in which I was actually happy Smiley  I often dream about being scared or stressed out, so this was remarkable. 

In the beginning of my dream, I was walking out the door from the kitchen into the garage in my house.  The lights were on (looked like metal halides in the overhead lights  Mercury Vapor Lamp)  I have incandescents in my garage IRL.  Anyway, I noticed the two cars in the garage.  The nearest car was my brother's run down 2001 BMW, dripping oil, and missing pieces.  The other car, to my enormous delight was what appeared to be a 2018 Subaru Outback.  I had a new car in my dream!  Grin  The Outback was light silver, with black leather seats and beautiful brown wood trim inside.  It was fully loaded with the navigation, XM radio, seat warmers, and of course full time four wheel drive.  It was sweet!  I opened the front driver side door and noticed that there were frameless windows, like in slightly older model Subarus. 

I started the car (push-button start) and backed out of the metal halide lit garage.  It was dark outside, but I noticed my other car, the red VW Jetta parked in the driveway outside.  I thought to myself how happy I was about getting to keep my old car and enjoy my new car, too.  I thought about how the Jetta would be safe parked in the driveway while I drove the Subaru. 

The scene cut to me driving to an office building, similar to the one I took my GRE test in a few months ago.  The building was uninhabited as it was the middle of the night.  I exited the car and walked up some stairs to the front door of the building.  The lobby inside had tall, vaulted ceilings and was brightly lit with incandescent spotlights and 2700K fluorescent light.  I walked to the elevator and thought about which floor I needed to go to.  I stood in front of the closed elevator, waiting for it to arrive.

 I woke up, unsure about where that elevator would take me, but happy about getting to experience a nice new car.
