Two nights ago I had a nightmare. I totally get that when I describe it to you, you wont think its that bad, but for someone like me, it is. And it wasnt a nightmare that was full of fear, or dread, or anything like that, if anything it was panic. Panic and a sense of "What the Hell am I gonna do now!?" And even though some of the details changed, this isnt the first time Ive had this nightmare.
So Im walking down the street, following two guys whom I dont know, bu we seem to be headed to the same place. A destination Im unaware of at the moment. So were walking and we pass one of my cousins headed the other way and she says hi and asks me where Im going. My response: "Comic-Con." She tells me to have fun, and I continue on my way.
I dont know if this will make sense, but have you ever had a dream and during the dream you kinda become conscious of the fact that youre dreaming? I mean, youre still asleep, youre still IN the dream, but theres some portion of your brain thats kinda "awake" and "watching" whats going on. Well, I do that sometimes and this was one of them.
So I continue on my way to Comic-Con and my brain suddenly becomes alive and is like: "WHAT?!"
Somehow Im no longer walking and Im on my bike and my brain is still freaking out. And steady stream of questions start pouring out: why am I taking my bike? Where am I going to keep it while Im there? Wheres my backpack? I dont have any snacks! I didnt pack any extra clothes! Whats the schedule? Whats the schedule?! WHATS THE SCHEDULE?! What am I going to do? I cant go to Comic-Con with no backpack, no supplies, and no idea whats going on! I am SO unprepared! What am I going to do? How can I salvage this situation? Whats the plan?!
Like I said, that probably wont register as a nightmare to some of you, but it was not a fun dream for me. And like I said, not the first time I was "going to Comic-Con" and had NO idea what was going on. I wonder if theres any hidden meaning to this or if my brain is just screwing with itself. Whatever. This is one dream I know will NEVER come true. Thankfully.
