So, it is currently 2:46am where I am at and I’m pretty sure I didn’t get to bed until almost midnight. I was jarred awake by an apparent nightmare. As odd as it was, I was simultaneously thinking of the best opening lines to a blog post about said dream.
These sentences are not it. Lol
I laid in bed within those first 5 minutes thinking of the way I’d love to write this post and every detail of the nightmare I just had. I debated getting up to write it. I thought, “no, it’s too early to get up, I will write it later”. At that time, I didn’t even know how early it really was.
The dream itself wasn’t even really upsetting or interesting in any way. I was just thrown awake so drastically that I felt like I couldn’t go back to sleep. I have also noticed, I think I am the most productive, writing wise, late at night.
Anyway, I looked at my phone to see the time, because I was obviously too awake to fall back asleep and I was in shock. I feel as though I have slept for at LEAST 6 hours. I couldn’t believe it was only 2-3 hours. Falling asleep felt like it was so long ago.
okay…. Dream time:
I really should of written this as soon as I woke up because now, the details are slipping me and like I said, it wasn’t that insane of a dream in the first place, but here it goes…
My dream’s cast consisted of some of my elementary and high school friends. People that I hadn’t seen or spoken to in years. As a matter of fact, over a DECADE. I guess maybe it was some kind of reunion. I feel like we were all in some kind of field waiting for something; an announcement, a celebrant. I go off into a forest or something with my boyfriend and as we are walking, I disturbed some sort of nest. I think, I must of killed whatever was in there. It was a hive of some sort. We approach a clearing, and I guess, as dreams would have it, there were two folding chairs waiting for us. My boyfriend sits in one, and I notice the hive mama buzzing around, gunning FOR ME.
It is basically the equivalent of a hummingbird sized mosquito. Or if a hummingbird and a mosquito hybrid existed, this monster was it. So, it’s buzzing around trying to attack me. I’m swatting it. I literally pick up my folding chair and I’m stepping to bat. I’m not fast enough though because I keep feeling it hit me. The buzzing of its wings close to my ears, even now, thinking about it, is giving me the chills. Much to my chagrin, my boyfriend has already sat down and is minding his own business. So I know that I’ve hit this thing a few times already, but it is relentless and I think I’m getting tired of holding up the folding chair, trying to hit it, trying to dodge it. I keep feeling it stabbing my neck and hearing the buzzing noise. BUZZZZZZZZ…..!!!!!!
That is when I jump awake, adrenaline apparently pumping because it is now, 3:14am and I am still awake.
I should probably go back to bed, since my alarm will go off at 5am. Goodnight everyone.
