What Dreams May Come

A while back I told you that it is a very rare occasion when I remember a dream. Well, one of those occasions has come again. This one disturbed me greatly for some reason and has stuck with me for more than a day now. So I thought I would share it, at least the short version, and see if anyone has any insights...

I don't remember how the dream started, so I'll just pick it up from a later point...

At this point I was roommates with a good friend of mine, one that those of you who know me might have heard of, and we were renting a good sized house which we had been living in for a while.

Anyway, my friend (let's call him James for now) decided to throw a huge party and was making arrangements for it quite a bit in advance. Because people were likely to be in no shape to travel afterwards, James was giving people the option to apply to rent crash space for the night. He even had a application form made up which he was handing out to people.

So anyway, the night of the party rolls around and James comes over to me, hands me an application and says "You haven't filled one of these out yet."

Of course I handed the application back saying that I wasn't going to apply for crash space in my own home.

James then angrily handed the application back saying "This is my party and EVERYONE has to fill one out."

Not being willing to put up with this kind of shit in my own home, I took the application, crumpled it up, and threw it in James' face.

From there, things escalated quickly and we were about to come to blows when I woke up.

I'm not sure what this dream was trying to tell me, if anything. I do know that it disturbed me. What disturbs me even more is how vivid still the parts I recited above are in my mind. Especially since I had this dream the night of the first.

If you have any thoughts (or questions) on this leave a comment below. Or if you are not comfortable with that, you can send an email to journal(at) If you choose the email option (although, I think I would prefer it in comments) please put "New Year's Dream" (or the title of this post) in the subject so that I will know it directly relates to this post.

Any insight would be appreciated.
