REM sleep?

As soon as I woke up from my nap, I still feel damn awful tired, probably even more so. It was a one or two-hour long nap. I let my phone play music with a playlist set on shuffle. I intended it that way. Fully woke up when my phone finally finished the playlist.

And I said fully. I was also aware of the music that was playing in the background. As I consciously knew of the songs being played, I subconsciously dreamed a lot too. Rapid Eye Movement, perhaps? I forget what it was called, but I still remember some of the dreams I had.

At one point, I had birthday boy Kevin (it's his birthday today) and Dexter sitting at a bench on my way to the dorm. From Kevin's pants, Kev pulled out my cellphone and a packet of sugar I acquired from restaurants that went missing from my pockets. I told him, to hand me my phone but he could throw the packet of sugar away. He did by going to the library. I sat beside Dexter to rest a bit. Kevin came back and, just to humor me, sat on my lap. Heavy damn it! But I let him anyway. I set some music on my phone...that's when I knew my real phone was still playing in the background.

There was another time when I had a Science class. I forgot whether it was Physics, Chemistry, Biology or a combination. What I remembered was it awfully reminds me of High School Science classes. I was also with Kevin at that time. Can't remember the rest though. I do remember I was supposed to attend the class at a later time, at 4 PM to be exact. I kept checking my phone for the time.

At another point, I had a dream within a dream. I dreamt that Alex-niisan logged in. Then, I dreamt waking up and checked my laptop. Alex apparently just logged in. We talked about Archie, mostly, and like usual, he hates his guts. Alex told me Archie was just talking to him, saying Archie was practically begging him to come back to his forum. Midway in the dream, I realized it was a dream in a dream because I remembered turning off my laptop before I slept.

Oddly, I was still with Archie back then. As if I haven't left the forums, I was given new moderator powers...superhero moderator powers. I could easily roam around, vanquishing certain Ragnarok Online-inspired monsters and collecting their loot. I also had another side, like a second form that I showed to Alex as if I were in a fighting game. Yeah, it's weird for me to even describe it but I remember it.

In another dream, I was with Meme and the rest of the Symphony guild in their guild town. The guild town was significantly different. It was like Old Payon in the sense that in the middle of the town seemed to have a road where most players are. At the side of the road are grassy areas and lots of trees. Monsters, particularly MVP monsters, would sometimes spawn in those areas. I had to lure some MVPs away from the main crowd, at least until Meme and her guild decided to fight it.

The latest one had me in a van roaming around my cousin's neighborhood in Loyola Heights, except for the fact that they weren't in Katipunan anymore but was on a highway overlooking the sea. We had to pick up two people, who were presumably friends of my aunt. I don't recognize them but they sure know me and shared me some sweets. Among them was an old favorite baked good of mine, "Lakas." They also showed me a cake that was meant for their 10th or 25th anniversary. Of what, I don't know. Oh and my sister and Ate Trixie just appeared in front of me too.

We finally arrived at my place. The cake was at the round table...and I did a few vandals on it. Using my finger, I made a message on each side of the cake (it was square) and at the same time, eating parts of it (it was chocolate). The cake didn't hold out much though. It leaned a lot much like an accordion. Hell, the texture was similar to an accordion. Still chocolate though. I tried repairing the cake too.

Some time in between those dreams, I would realize I was still listening to my phone. Sometimes the song would stop and play the next song. I was wondering if the song just stopped only to realize that it would play the next song. I guess that made me woke up, since the phone finally stopped playing.

I woke up, still dazed.
