  1. I had a dream . That I was looking for my tombstone with my name on it in the graveyard. Something told me i wasn’t alive anymore.

  2. Last night I had a dream that I was back in high school again (I graduated in 2017) with people I’ve never met before. We had a field trip to go see gravestones decorated in symbols of the dead who were buried there. It was set up kind of like science fair. The teachers were rude and demanding towards all of us once we got there. Once we starting looking at the graves we all started to steal items without a second thought. Once it was time to go back to school we all left scattering to try to hide what we stole but wore it obviously. (We traveled by boat) on the way back home we began to be engulfed by the water and we had apparent superpowers arise keeping us alive. Then I saw spirits surround those who stole from them and the spirits messed with the powers we gained to start killing us off one by one. I watched 2 people die before I woke up.
