I've been sick these past few days and thus have been taking several naps throughout the day. During one of these naps i had a very peculiar dream. After waking i didn't think much of it except i was slightly concerned and the morbid nature. I later was talking with a friend and shared it with him. After sharing my dream my friend insisted that i find a dream book. Now he meant to right down my dreams which I'll admit are usually (if remembered) very detailed. However, initially i thought he meant i should purchase a dream book in which to interpret my dreams. I instantly went online and went in search of something similar that i wouldn't have to purchase. I came across dreammoods.com, which i quickly found to be a wonderful website for analyzing dreams. My friend then insisted that i put my dream on this blog. I then suggested that i could also put what each part supposedly means. He wasn't too thrilled about this idea, but i thought it would be fun. Now this dream in particular i felt was a tad too morbid for online (i know that doesn't make sense, but it's what i felt). So instead I've decided to put up the dream i had the next morning. Which is divisible into three parts.
