what happens in your dreams?

It started with a dream. 

 

don’t really know how my dreams begin; I just end up there. There has been many a time that I wake up in someone else’s body. And I understand that there is a significant amount of people that dream like that too. For the people that don’t know what I mean it's like waking up but not really waking up in the body of a favorite athlete or movie star. But for me it’s different I have no idea who it is. Because when I look in the mirror it is still me but slightly different yet when I interact with others in my dreams it feels curious.  

When they speak to me, I know they don’t really mean the actual me. I can tell because of the way they speak to me, the way they look at me and especially when they try to give me compliments. In my dreams I could be a anything or anyone. But something that always sticks with me is that when it is over and I really do wake up I see the same people from my dreams. And I can tell that when they interact with me again, they feel as if I am a comfort.  

The one thing that I don’t understand is why am I a comfort? Why is it that they warm up to me and tell me that I am the easiest person to talk to? What confuses me is that before the actual interaction I had previously never spoken to nor met them. The only time I have is in my dreams. Does this mean that I can tell who I will meet next just by dreaming about them? But the question is why does it happen is there some reason for the way I dream?  

 

 

Finally, I finished the entries Dr. Vargas requested. I told her it was a waste of my time I mean if I don’t know why in the bloody blazes, I dream like this how is he going to figure it out. Gah this is so frustrating as I pull my hair. Maybe I should explain myself a little, my name is Minthe Klien but everyone calls me Mint my parents were very into Greek Mythology and decided that it would be “Adorbs” as my mother says it every time, she tells the story of how I got my name to anyone who decides they want to be friends with me, or the cashier at the grocery store when she smiled at us and my mother told me “Mint now don’t be awkward say hello to the cute girl.” Which at the age of 17 is utterly embarrassing in my opinion? 

I mean what teenager wants their mother to try and play wing man. But oh, hoho it doesn’t stop there, the cute guy that always jogs down the street. , you better believe she has told him maybe twice if I am lucky and unfortunately, I don’t have the best luck so that is just a pipe dream. But anyways as I have said I am 17 and I have been homeschooled for the past 17 years. But this year is different I get to actually go to the local high school for my senior year. And I will not lose this opportunity to have a chance at some type of normalcy. My mother, Enyo Klien but is affectionally called Yoyo by my father, she is a bit more eccentric than most people, but that is the territory when she is the owner of a bookstore and she doesn’t have to report to anyone. Then there is my father Evander Klien who is only called Evan by my mother. He works as a techie for a big fortune 500 company but I  really know much that he does there other than it has something to do with tech.
