Dreaming of WTF

A few years ago, I began writing down my dreams as soon as I woke up, as much details as possible, whatever I could remember–things, colors, words, places, numbers. I would try to decode my dreams, looking for meaning. My dreams don’t always make sense, but I did notice that I dream of specific places when I’m feeling a certain way.

For example, when I’m feeling extremely stressed, confused about the direction my life is going, I dream about my childhood home in Philadelphia on 38th and Fairmount Ave. Before my mother joined the Army, I was a happy child. I didn’t know I we were poor. That’s not what stayed with me. I remember the sunlight shining through the window that my mom, aunt and I shared. I remember playing with the tree in front of the house, racing up and down the sidewalk with my friends, even though my mom told me to stop running on the concrete before I fell (which I did and scraped my knee). So, when I feel extreme stress, I dream about the house and how it looked at that time.

I’ve decided to share some of these dreams with you all. Why? Because this last dream that I remember–I don’t know what the hell it was about.

I was in a house with dark, cherry wood (I think) floors. I was standing in a hallway leading to a round staircase. I walked up the stairs and there was a hallway with just a tall window and bright light coming in. A cat was sitting there looking out the window. I walked toward the cat and it turned around. It had the face of Donald Trump and its body was grey. I picked it up, carried it down the stairs and put him down. There weren’t people there before or I don’t remember people being there.But when I went back downstairs, there was a dinner party. Everyone started whispering around me. The Trump cat kept rubbing up against people’s legs and making people scream.Then, I remember Stone Cold Steven Austin and Triple H were there shooting a commercial about sexism against men and it was being shot in POV from Triple H. The Trump cat walked up to them and rubbed up against Steven Austin’s leg and said, “Listen, listen listen. Do you know how stupid these people are. Don’t be stupid like these people, okay. Just open that over there and let me out, okay?” Then something like “Do you even know who I am? Just open the door and I’ll buy California for you because I’m that rich. No really, ask anybody.”

I swear I am not smoking bath salts. I have no idea what that dream was supposed to mean. What do you think it means, aside from I obviously need a vacation?

World of Warcraft: Legion Undersea Survey (World Quest)

I am directionally challenged in the game. Yes, I know. You probably thought I was just super amazing (totally kidding). Being directionally challenged does NOT help when you are attempting new quests and cannot “google” those quests. Well, here’s one that was a bit annoying to find: The Undersea Survey world quest, which is located in the center of Azurgale Bay in Suramar.

Objective: Find the the four pylons and activate them. Underwater. Deep underwater. Surrounded by overzealous Naga and friends. Oh! This quest gives 50 Nightfallen Reputation.

I’ll try to post coordinates on WoWhead. Happy questing!

I just can’t get over how amazing the scenery is! I swear, the imagery really just sucks me in. When people ask me why I love this game so much, it’s this scene that explains why.

And do I have a “pixel crush” on Jarod Shadowsong?

Another thing I’m enjoying about this expansion: having a holy “Voidwalker”. Well, it’s called a Lightspawn and you can get him once a day from the Well of Light to fight for you for ten minutes. He heals you as he’s fighting. I wish there was an option to have Lightspawn instead of the shadowy thing.DD and holy void

Even though, on Blizzard’s side, the game has been running fairly smooth (thank you, again, Blizzard), idiots have decided to DDOS WoW. Why? You would think hackers would be smarter. “Let’s annoy everyone because we’re bored and because we can” should be their motto. Do something different. Be original. Hack the major US banks and corporations and reset our society. Be useful, shit. As soon as I hit 110, WoW crashed. And of course, with me being on a very populated server, the queue time was 30 minutes. I don’t mind the wait. I can multitask. But I shouldn’t have been knocked offline for the selfishness of others in the first place. *end rant*

Before bed, I tested the waters of a few new dungeons. They were all so much fun to play, but Maw of Souls has the best end boss fight so far. Why? Stormy weather, held captive on a ship that takes you to the WoW equivalent of Hades (I love the incorporation of twists on various mythologies).

Halls of Valor was pretty fun, as well. Can you say, ‘Ludicrous speed’?

And of course, the transmog!
