Zombie Dream

This one stood out to me for a couple of reasons.  The length, the detail, and the sheer number of people from my past.  That, and I seem to dream of zombies quite a bit . . .

I started out working on something on the computer.  I think I was trying to get into my blog, but couldn't remember the URL.  Before I fully remembered, I had to go to school.  I was packing my bag and mom wanted me to check which of her cameras (desire to cling to or live in the past, alternatively a need to focus) had the most memory left.  I told her I'd have to do it when I got back.

The school didn't look like much of one on the inside.  It felt more like a mall.  I ran into Jana and Kristy.  They were a lot younger than they are now.
(to dream of your cousins represents some aspect of your character that is familiar.  Perhaps you need to develop an emerging ability or character trait)  I held their hands and walked with them towards the cafeteria.  When I got there they disappeared, but Marie and Brandy showed up.  I was sitting on a table (the long kind with the attached benches) talking to them.  Brandy took out some tweezers and started plucking my unibrow.  (to see tweezers indicates a need to look at a situation much more closely)  I thanked her, then Marie and a couple of their friends joined in.

Then, all of a sudden, I was alone.
  (to dream that you are alone indicates feelings of rejection.  You may feel that no one understands you)  It was dark, so I assumed it was time to go home.  I had to walk.  It started to drizzle.  (to dream that you get wet from the rain signifies that you will soon be cleansed from your troubles and problems)  I ran into Bam Margera (acting like he did before in a dream, not like he is on Jackass).  He offered me a ride home.  We were walking to his van (convenience or practicality) when this guy started bumping into us.  Bam asked him what his problem was, but he just stared at us.  It was really creeping me out.  Bam beat him up and as we got into his van, the guy started to get up.  Just as I closed my door and he started to drive, three more people threw themselves against the van.  Zombies!!  (To see a zombie, suggests that you are physically and/or emotionally detached from people and situations that are currently surrounding you. You are feeling out of touch)

We tore out of there and headed for his mother's store.  By the time we got there it wasn't secure at all.  Everyone was around the register, and zombies had busted in the glass.  I told everyone to get downstairs, where I barricaded the door.  After doing that I heard Jay's voice from above.  When I realized that Silent Bob was down there with us, I knew I had to let him in.

After everything was secure again, I remembered there was a door which lead to the back yard that was surrounded by a huge, sturdy wooden fence
(an obstacle or barrier; or a need for privacy). I went out, didn't see any zombies, but the gate (new opportunities or possibilites) was open.  I hauled ass to it and secured it as best I could.  When I turned aroud, not only was everyone outside with me, but the fence was completely gone minus a few nubs in the ground!  I ran back to the basement as fast as I could, practically in tears.

I was sitting on the couch,
(rest, relaxation, laziness or boredom) drinking a Mountain Dew, wracking my brain to figure out what to do next when Jenny Bowers showed up.  She said if I wanted to survive, first off I'd have to quit drinking soda.  She took my Dew, but all I could manage was a weak, "But I'm thirsty."  She started talking about rations, but faded off as I woke up.

So there it is.  I think deep down I may really be scared of zombies.  Maybe cuz I know they really exist?  Or maybe it's the loss of self.  I think this may have something to do with why I really don't want to be kept on life support if I go into a coma.  If I'm alive on my own in a coma, then I'm alive.  If machines are keeping my body alive, I'm already gone.  I'd be like an immobilized zombie myself.  Who wants that?
  As always, dream symbol interpretation is from
