Lady Gaga Test Dream

April25

I was in college studying Lady Gaga.  I was on my way to meet with the teacher’s assistant to discuss my final test grade.  I was certain that I did not deserve the “B” I was given.  When I reached the room, I saw Lady Gaga grading papers at her desk and continued on my way to discuss my grade.  I saw a bunch of Lady Gaga’s shoes in a closet and decided to try them on.  I completely forgot about my grade and decided that I may have deserved the “B” after all.

I walked over to Lady Gaga and thanked her for letting me try on her shoes and then I walked up a narrow stairwell to ground level.

World War II Hitler Dream

April24

I was living underground a hay field during WWII.  I ventured out from my burrow in the winter, and while still night, a friend and I started racing our sleds toward town.  I was parallel to the country road and over some hills I could see the Nazis driving toward me.  At the speed I was sledding, there was no way to stop so I laid as close to the ground as I could and sped by.

Once in town I hid in an old white house.  The entryway was large and opened up all the way to the ceiling.  I ran upstairs and hid in the bedroom. I was now dressed in an old Southern dress and I heard Bing Crosby downstairs talking with Nazi soldiers.  He was saying that we had no more and they should leave.

There was an explosion and the house was mostly destroyed.  Looking down into the hall, I saw Hilter and Bing Crosby fighting each other.  It was very dramatic as Bing swung and missed while Hitler laughed standing above him.  Bing jumped up and shot Hitler in the head but before I could relax, Hilter had not been affected by the bullet.  Almost zombie-like, Hitler came charging at Bing.   I ran down and grabbed a board and started whacking Hilter on the head. He finally died. I hugged Bing and all was well.

Laundromat Business Dream

April24

I had just started working at a water treatment plant in an old laundromat.  As I was cleaning up behind the counter, some ladies came in wanted me to wash their clothes.  I was confused at first but then explained that we were no longer a laundromat.  The ladies said that the old sign was still up outside.  Telling them we would fix it, I ushered them out.  When I got outside, there was a long line of customers holding laundry baskets waiting for service.  I started to panic and went inside, crouched in a corner and hugged a co-worker.

Homeless Adventure Dream

April3

Matt and I were walking down a dark stairway outside in an alley.  The with lights lit up the night sky as we walked though.  Fences surrounded us and we saw the homeless sleeping under newspaper blankets.

We were homeless too.  Matt suggested that we find an empty piece of ground to sleep on but after sitting down, I told Matt that I wanted to keep going.  When we got up though, we were completely naked and heading down the stairs toward the busy city street.

An old elementary schoolmate was across the street and saw me completely naked.  She was with a group of friends and yelled out “Whoa look at Becky  naked!”  I put my head down and shuffled off in search of shadowy places.


Matt and I found some shirts and pressed on through the city.  I didn’t care what I put on as long as I was fully clothed and warm again.  I saw a pair of muddy men’s jeans on the side of the road and grabbed them up.  Once we were dressed, I was in search for transportation.

I found a red bicycle for Matt and me to ride away on.  We found our condo and ran up the stairs to see if our stuff was still there.  Unfortunately, we had been robbed of all of possessions and they were replaced with goats, bunnies, kittens and ducks.  I said that I would rather have critters than the possessions.

I turned into an actress who was in a movie about my homeless experience.  This was a much more adventurous version of what happened.  I broke into buildings with Matt’s families looking for car parts only to find the workers still inside.  Apologizing we asked for the part and that we would pay them back later.  While leaving, we passed another family who was breaking in too and decided to just leave the item behind.

We ran into a factory and found pieces of bicycle that couldn’t fit together but before we got discouraged, Matt’s “actor” came with a giant bicycle as large as a car but with peddles.  He said it would hold all of our stuff.  We rode away but ended up on the top of a cliff.

We grabbed some zip lines and swooped off of the cliff face and over an expansive valley.  This was much more exciting than “real” life homelessness to the “actors” and much easier too.
