  1. My highschool batchmates and i are having a reunion/summer vacation in a famous beach resort. Not all were able to go though, but most of them were present. I was taking a stroll and saw my excrush. I approached him and talked to him for awhile. A few moments after, it was almost sunset, so I headed back to the hotel with my bestfriend. Before going back to my room, I went to the pool and took a swim for like 8-10mins. When I decided to go out of the pool, my bestfriend tossed 2 objects. They were actually dinosaur toys LOL. I don’t know why but I dived after them. I got the first dino easily, but the second one was hard to get since it reached the bottom of the pool. Weird as it is, there were corals at the bottom of the pool; and in tge dream i kind of felt anxious (because if the corals). I got both of the dinos. After that diving thing, I saw my present crush at the resort’s entrance (the pool was at a terrace). I went down to meet him, but decided not to so I went back up again. The hotel suddenly turned into a plane HAHA anyway, I got my baggage and went onboard. I sat on the first row, right side of the aisle, beside the window seat. My seat beside me (left) was vacant. Someone approached me and it turned out to be my present crush. He said that he didn’t want to be left behind (he didn’t mean left behind physically; he wanted to do some catching up since he wasn’t able to go to the reunion) so throughout the flight we were sitting together and catching up with each other.


    Ok, I just thought these details would be important in interpreting my dream.

    -I’m female, 18yrs old

    -dominant colors in my dream: royal blue, sand brown and cotton candy pink (sky). Blue is the most dominant. *I actually didn’t see the ocean because the resort was kinda crowded. The hotel and the pool was royal blue.

    -The dino toys? I think its because before I went to bed, I was having a laugh at photoshopped pics of trump (the one wherein he’s “playing” with dinos) LOL

    – My present crush IS my crush in the waking life. He’s a close friend of mine by the way, my guy bestfriend actually. We now go to different universitied.
