Awakened by a Dream…


Dream that I woke up to this morning:

I was at some function/lunch-time where I was eating all by myself. I was just observing everyone as they were. I then found myself talking to someone about how it was alright to eat alone. It was in an old factory type setting.  A bunch of women there etc…Then, I found myself running late. I was at Indiana University’s Memorial Union (which I would always get confused on the levels there and get turned around) when a gentleman pointed me to go up a flight of stairs. It was then at this point I was eating almonds climbing the stairs and I was hopping from one illuminated floating block to another. It was like I was in a video game leaping from one floating block to another and they were speeding up. As I leaped from one to another it would drop into the darkness below…then I woke up WAY past my alarm, yet I wasn’t late for work. Touche Monday, Touche!
A great little blog post you might also like!



An Analysis:


To see or eat almonds in your dream represents success and richness. To see an almond tree in your dream signifies happiness. Wedded bliss is also in your near future.


To dream that you are eating alone signifies loss, loneliness, and depression. You may feel rejected, excluded, and cut off from social/family ties. Eating may be a replacement for companionship and provide a form of comfort. Alternatively, eating alone reflects independent needs. Also consider the pun, “what’s eating you up?” in reference to anxiety that you may be feeling.


To dream that you are alone indicates feelings of rejection. You may be feeling that no one understand you. Delay To experience a delay in your dream suggests that obstacles toward your goals are inevitable. Don’t let these setbacks discourage you.


To dream that you are at a factory represents repetitious thinking and an old way of doing things. It is symbolic of predictability and unchanging habits. Alternatively, it signifies business, productivity, energy and bustling activity. You are a person that can get things done.


To dream that you are walking up a flight of stairs indicate that you are achieving a higher level of understanding. You are making progress into your spiritual, emotional or material journey. The dream is also analogous to material and thoughts that are coming to the surface.

Stepping Stone

To see or walk on a stepping stone in your dream suggests that you need to take things one step at a time in order to achieve your goals. Alternatively, the dream may be showing you the steps you need to take toward your goals. Follow the dream course and see where it takes you.


To see light in your dream represents illumination, clarity, guidance, plain understanding, and insight. Light is being shed on a once cloudy situation or problem. You have found the truth to a situation or an answer to a problem. Also consider the color of the light for additional significance.


To dream that you are speeding indicates that you are compelled and driven to complete something. As a result, you may be pushing people away. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you are moving too fast in some relationship or situation. Perhaps you need to slow down.


To dream that you are in a hurry suggests that may be unprepared for a situation. There is a lack in your planning of things. Alternatively, to dream that you are in a hurry means that you are feeling out-of-place. This dream may also be a literal reflection of your daily life where you feel that you are always in a rush. And that there is not enough time to do all the things you want to do. The dream may occur due to this type of stress.


To dream that you are in a rush indicates that you need to better manage your time. You feel that you do not have the time to do all the things you want to do. The dream is also representative of the pressure you are putting on yourself. You feel unprepared. Perhaps, the dream is telling you to slow down.

Over all, this dream made me crack up.  Just another reminder that I need to slow down and take it one step at a time.  I am getting ahead of myself.  I am anxious to start this new chapter in my life and clearly I have a little anxiety from it…

Anyone else having any CRAZY dreams lately???

Derek the Dog…bark bark!


Yesterday, I came across a dog.  His name was Derek the Dog.  It was pretty comical seeing that I am so little and he is so not.  You see, when I met this dog, he was out on the prowl.  Looking for a kill.  He was just freshly on the market looking for a thrill…I thought otherwise though.

Upon talking to him further, I realized there was more to him then met the eye (that reference was for all of you Transformers fans out there!).  He might have seemed very hairy, mean, and over protective at times but, I must say he had a very soft side to him.  At first, I must divulge, I was frankly not impressed.

It all started when I went out to lunch.  I was by myself.  I sometimes like going out sitting and observing others at the risk of me looking like a creep…but you know what?  I figure things out quickly this way.  Well anyways…I came across a dog.  On the outside this dog was very attractive.  Dark hair, mysterious eyes…he was just abnormally big!  He kind of came off cold and mean too.  He was sniffing hind ends….looking for the next subtle victim of his “love spell”…usually when someone comes off tough, it’s a cover up for pain and suffering.

So I sat there.  Minding my business, when I noticed he was relieving himself on the fire hydrant next to me.  EWWW…..there had to be better places to relieve yourself!  I continued to look down and kept on eating.  Then, I looked up and he was asking if he could sit with me!  (First off, I don’t like to be messed with when I have “me” time!)  I looked at him head to toe with the stink eye….and decided it was OK for him to pop a squat.

Derek the Dog vs. The CatMan

Surprisingly we really hit it off.  He was a dog of few words…unlike those little yappy ones who are the “pretty boys” of the crew.  This one was different.  Despite his outward appearance, he was very sweet and kind on the inside.  You could definitely tell he had something on his mind.  I inquired further…”…do you have a girlfriend or companion?” (OK…note this is where it gets interesting!) “…I did have a girlfriend but, now we are no more…we fought a lot and it was not what I wanted.  I broke it off after 1 year, 2 days, 15 hours, and 17.5 minutes. (WHO COUNTS THAT?  Seriously?) “….well what happened?  Do you want to talk?”  Then the flood gates opened….

“We were “in love” for a year.  She was beautiful with her blue eyes.  She was a little petite thing (could be interchangeable for YAPPY if you asked me!!)…well we met on the street.  I was out and about trying to find the right one to have a life with…yes I was trying to find a girl to settle down with!  Is that hard to believe?  AND as soon as I set my paws on her I knew I had to have her!  Well for the most part it was great but then it wasn’t at times….and when we fought…we fought long and hard.  It was brutal.  But we always could make up….” (This is where he started blubbering like an idiot!  Although I can’t say that I didn’t feel sorry for him!)  “…this last time…we just couldn’t.  It didn’t feel like love anymore.  So I ended it.”

At this point, I gave the dog a kind look and hug.  Man that’s got to be rough.  I definitely don’t know what that is like…psh….because I am CatMan of course…but, I did know others who had situations like it.  I guess my only piece of advice I could think of was to tell him to stay away, far-far away from those yappy dogs!  He has to follow his heart, and if the match is no longer right then he must do what’s right for him.  It seems that he has done the right thing.  It is hard, but these friends of mine that went thru this told me that the support of good friends gets you thru!

So I decided to set all biases aside and be a friend.  Grrr….you know how hard it is to support a dog like that??   Sigh…as a friend now, I will love and support him…so therefore I suck it up.
