      I dreamed i was in an amusement park. The park was empty except for me. All the rides were running but completely silent. I could hear myself walking through leafs and humming. I would stop and watch a ride but never try to ride one. Sometimes I would laugh at one. All rides that I watched was some type of small old style rollercoaster. I was not look for anything/anyone and I was very calm. I was enjoying the area. The park was full of very vibrant colors and beautiful. It was peaceful and I was happy.

  1. I dreamt that I was in an isolated part of town in which a siren (mermaid temptress, not ambulance wee-woo) had managed to manipulate a large group of innocent girls into becoming sirens. I had managed to survive it by plugging myself into my earbuds and avoiding listening to their songs. In many of my dreams recently, a mass amount of people turns evil for some odd reason and I am forced to pretend to be like them in order to survive and escape the darkness.
