"The Dream Shatterer"

Ay-yo I shatter dreams like Jordan, assault and batter your team
Your squadron'll be barred from rap like Adam & Eve from the garden -
Big Pun






Oh wait, I almost forgot-





I'm down to 219 as of Monday the 21st. That's a total of 11 pounds I've lost since August 7. Not quite my goal of 215 that I wanted to reach by now, but I'm still losing. On Monday evening, I jogged/ran/walked 2.6 miles. Talk about being spent. And to top it off, I walked up 20 flights of stairs to my crib after the jog. Also did the same last night after coming home from my second job, even with sore legs. I'm trying to see how many days in a row I can do this. My goal for next Monday is to get down to 215. The ultimate goal is 200.




But now to the story at hand.




As I alluded to in the previous post, if I happen to dream about a prospective female in my life, that usually means that I'll never be with her romantically OR If I have, I will never be that way with her again. Maybe because of the fact that If I'm already with her, there is no need to dream about her right? I had two dreams recently about two women that had been dealing with.



One was about Chappelle #2. To recap again, all I could remember in the dream was that she came to a party with her new butch girlfriend, and I was mad about it. One, because she never told me she was gay, and two because I wanted to be with her. I tried to have a talk with her alone but she didn't oblige. That's all I remember. I'm still trying to figure out the whole lesbian angle.




My second dream was about Gina. This one was rather interesting. I had a dream that I tried to get with her mother. The thing is, I've never met or seen her mother before! I'm assuming it was her mother because it was kind of a sneak move on our parts because we knew it was wrong. I remember trying to mess around with her in the basement while Gina was upstairs. I don't remember if I actually got to penetratin', I just remember that she was a little receptive but then gave in to me.




Now what I take from the second dream is, Gina is too young and immature for me (21 and I'm 27) and I need someone older. Not someone's MILF (LOL), but someone on my level. Me and Gina never had sex. She spent the night one time back in June, but nothing happened (Just to note, the fact that we never were together in that way didn't deter me from wanting to be with her. She's the one who killed the courtship, by her own admission). I still see her every now and then, but it's a quick hi and bye. I haven't spoken to her on the phone in a long time. Its funny how things go. When you first start to date someone, it feels so fresh and new, and you feel like "Ok this might be the one right here". And then that Day 30 hits. Usually at Day 30 of dating someone, you'll know if that person you've been seeing is going to be a chapter in your life or just a page; a mere footnote. I started dating Gina about a few weeks before my birthday (Mid-May). By Mid-June, it started going downhill. Conversations on a daily basis with each convo timed at least a half hour to an hour or more, then it dwindled down to 2 or 3 times a week for about 10 to 15 minutes, then down to once a week for maybe 5 minutes, to nothing at all. It went downhill, and it went downhill quick!



But overall, I believe I have these dreams as a sign of knowing if I should pursue someone. Any female that I've ever been with intimately, I've never dreamed of her prior to the intimacy. So with that in mind, I am officially closing the chapter on me and Chappelle #2, and turning the page on me and Gina.



But the book of my life continues on. I can't wait to read what happens next.....................




I probably will not blog again until Monday of next week. I have some projects at work that I need to get my ass on, so I have to cut out all extra-curricular activities (blogs, ebay, message boards) thru the end of the week. If I finish early, I'll be back to write and/or check out your blog. If not, have a nice weekend, talk to you on Monday.


Thanks for Reading as Always,

Robert Mack

Dynasty

Usually in my dreams, the exact opposite happens.

Miz JJ
Well that's just for me. Yours may be different..you should write about them so I can try to decipher.

Nique

Interesting....I never thought about it that way Rob...crazy thing happened to me...

I had a dream about my ex boyfriend, before I had ever spoken with him and the dream was so hot, I had to pursue it in real life.

Sometimes dreams can be triggered by something you ate before bed and dreaming is said to be your minds/thoughts time to play at night while your physical body rest.

Maybe your dreams are your thoughts that you don't allow to play while you are up and "thinking". I am guessing maybe you are drawn to being with older women but somewhere you "think" it is wrong so you were dippin' to do it. Lastly, I would say about the lesbian thing...since you are assuming it was her girlfriend...maybe it is just the fanstasy of seeing two women together.

Again, I am no dreamologist but just my guesses to get you even more confused.

A whole weekend without blogging just a little bit...Sorry!
