Wacky dream

I dreamed I was putting on a high school play, and was the star of said play. It had something to do with Star Trek: TNG, and the scene I remember most vividly was I was supposed to go down to the engine room and manually switch off the warp drive while in warp 10, which was supposed to reset something and keep us from warping through the edge of the universe or something. I remember telling the crew at a meeting that it was very possible that instead of saving our lives that the ship would break apart, but when the other option was to warp through existence and die anyway, this was a much better solution.  So Red alert goes off and I was given the okay to go and do what needed to be done. I remember running down to ten forward and telling people who were eating that they needed to get somewhere safe, and then I remember going back to my quarters because I needed to find a really bad ass outfit to wear in case we succeeded and pictures were taken of me lol.  Keep in mind this was all supposed to be a play for a high school. When I went to find cool clothes I was in a regular house, like not a space ship lol. I remember saying to myself "I haven't played Star Trek since I was a kid this is so much fun!!" and I had a little battery operated loudspeaker toy that I was using to make announcements to.  I don't know if I maanged to save the Enterprise because I woke up too soon, but it was a lot of fun and I think it was directly inspired by watching the trailer for the Rogue One Star Wars movie coming out in Dec.

I haven't updated here recently, but I think the hallucinations have finally stopped.  I haven't had one in a really long time. I've been doing pretty well and that's just fine by me.  Apart from having a bad bout with allergies recently, things are going pretty good. I started my job at Dollar General yesterday and they seem like a very nice group of people. I go in tonight for some register training and I imagine that'll go smoothly.

Finally watched "Shock Treatment", the not-really-a-sequel to the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  The songs are catchy but the movie is weird... I guess like Rocky was.  I didn't like the new Janet. Her voice was too different from Susan Sarandon's. Too deep. Made Janet sound like she had a whiskey and Marlboro habit. Otherwise, it was an okay movie I guess, the soundtrack was pretty good, particularly the one about the inanimate objects:

That does sound like a fun kind of dream!

I'm glad to hear the hallucinations have stopped though and I hope everything at Dollar General goes well.

Oh, also I wanted to mention that I like your various week by week FMA Big Bang posts! I mean, I may not be writing anything, but I enjoy seeing them and the tone you've written them in! They seem both fun/encouraging and matter-of-fact. :)

it was fun! those are the best dreams imo, or the ones where I wake myself up laughing lol.

I already quit Dollar General. My first day on the register they didn't even give me any training for their machine, just someone else's log on information. I had to teach myself how to use it, which thankfully wasn't all that complicated. But as the day wore on I knew that this was not the job for me. The girl who was supposed to be training me was on her cellphone the entire time via a headset she'd hidden in her hoodie, and I never knew if she was talking to me or her phone. The store manager had already screwed my schedule so badly that I would have to call out 2 days... They didn't even let me clock out at the end of the night, just told me I did a great job and to go on and leave. But that's okay- I'm at the tail end of an interview process with the police department to be a school crossing guard which is going to work out all kinds of perfectly for me! I have to take a polygraph test on Friday O__O

And I wish I was writing more actually. Some of it is me trying to get back into the gym more regularly, some of it is lack of inspiration/depression. But I read fan fic every night before bed trying to keep my ideas fresh at least, so maybe soon I'll be able to jump back on the fic wagon full time- hopefully in time to make the big bang deadlines!
