Then, Erin broke up with Matt for some reason, and because of this became an alcoholic.

Soooo many doppelgangers.
I was in a building with Erin and Meredith and Matt. I think it was Dupont. There was some sort of social gathering. In the middle of it, there appeared in the hallway a rift. Meredith went through, and I followed.
We were in a small kitchen. There was a short, skinny, dark-haired man, balding with a hooked nose. Also a kind of heavy girl wearing leather pants and a tank top with a tattoo on her shoulder. She also had dark hair, tied back in a ponytail. Meredith knew these two people from the before times, and started chatting with them. I sort of participated in the discussion. I noticed that Mer had a similar tattoo on her shoulder, and started thinking about what I would get if I got a tattoo. The man went to get us drinks. He brought us glasses of water, and the girl a shotglass filled with a bright red liquid. I leaned over to Meredith and was "What's that?" She said "Nothing." I kept asking, Meredith kept not answering. We took our leave shortly.
Back in the hallway of Dupont we met Matt and Erin. I continued bothering Mer about what was in that shotglass,. I asked if it was human blood, she got angry and told me that I didn't need to know everything. She didn't have to tell me about her past if she didn't want to. There was a quake that shook the entire building, and when I turned around the tattooed girl was right behind us. She was smiling a little too emptily. She handed me a yellow box with some sort of foreign writing on it. "You left this in our kitchen." I opened the box and found that it was full of papers, some peices of looseleaf with doodles on them, my flight itinerary from the trip I took over spring break, some old receipts. At the bottom there were some documents that I didn't recognize. One of them was stained with something bright red and kind of lumpy.
I turned to Meredith to ask what was up with this, because it might be kind of important. She ignored me and kept staring ahead with a strange look on her face. She and the tattooed girl started walking down the hallway and we followed. Erin and Matt were on my other side, chatting about something. They fell quiet too. Everyone kept moving forward. I heard doors opening behind me. When I turned around the hallway behind us was filling with people, all with the same expression. Some I recognized from classes, some were professors. Some of them appeared more than once in the crowd. They were all blankly moving in our direction. Erin turned to me and asked to see the box I'd received from the tattooed girl. I clutched the box and started running.
I ran down the hallway and up the stairs to Jim Groom's office. There was another man at an opposing desk. I ran over to Jim and asked if he had any matches or a lighter or something. I wanted to burn the box and its contents. Jim Groom wasn't acting like the horde of people downstairs, but he didn't have any matches. Something about "why would they allow me to have those in an academic building?" I went to the desk with the other man and asked if he had any. He looked at me for a few seconds and started laughing. A deep laugh, not the kind of laugh you use when someone asks you something stupid. It started sounding evil. Just then the doors opened, and the doppelgangers of Erin, Matt, Meredith and the tattooed girl came through. They were completely silent, but the halls behind them were filled with the others, and now they were making sounds. Sort of an echoey roar. Some of them had really evil smiles on their faces. The guy at the desk just kept laughing. They converged on me. Jim told me to go out the window. I was afraid, so I did.
Well, I didn't actually go out the window, but it was understood that I did. I appeared to be in this floating bouncy castle, above the campus. I had no way of controlling it, and no way of getting down. I looked at the sky, which was kind of cloudy, and it started pouring rain. The balloon castle started filling with water. I asked God why he would do this to me. He laughed and gave me an umbrella. The water filled up the balloon to my neck before it reached the meshy windows on the sides of this castle and it started emptying. I still had the yellow box of papers with me, but the box's colors had faded from the water, and most of the papers had disintegrated.
Then I woke up.

I felt ill, and acted enough like it in German literature that Rotter let me miss German business without using one of my skip days. So I went to go find Erin, but when I left the classroom I was outside of St. Peter's, and had to walk back to F-burg in time to meet Adrienne for lunch.

Mer and I decided to sell some art and send half of the money to Japan. We tried selling our wares to people in real life, but most of our success came from the playground. Meredith came to me and was stressed. "No one is buying my art!" I told her that tons of internet people were buying her art, and tried to go to giantitp to check my inbox messages and show her. I couldn't log in from that computer, so I went to find another one. The one I found was in an office in Goolrick, above the pool. I logged in, and had 10 or so messages. One person had bought me an ipod instead of giving me money, which defeated the point but I accepted it.
Then I went grocery shopping for breakfast. Some pirates arrived and ordered me to make them an omelet, so I did.

There was more, but this is what I recall.I slept in through the start of Literature, but only by 3 minutes or so. At first I thought "eh, I'll skip it." But then I started feeling guilty, and I quickly pulled my stuff together and ran to Combs. The class wasn't in the room. They were meeting in another room in a different building. I was like "Yes, I can use this as an excuse as to why I wasn't able to make it on time." But by the time I found the classroom they were in, it was noon and class had ended. Business German was taking place in a different room too, and I missed that as well. I finally found someone from my class in Combs, and asked them what happened. They told me to go see Herr Rotter in his office. I did, he told me how awful my participation grade is. Then he told me that we'd watched a movie in class and I'd have to rent it from Netflix. "But I have 6 movies in my queue already!" I complained.

My parents were hosting a party. I was helping clean up. There was this important box that I had to keep safe, as it was vital to the success of this party, so I was carrying it with me. I started putting things in the random stuff drawers all over our house , and over the course of doing this I found a Game Boy Color cartridge for every Pokemon game that ever existed for GBC, and some that have never existed on any system (for example, "Pokemon Sparkly"). I started planning to buy a new Game Boy Color and play every single one of these games in succession rather than replay Soul Silver when I finish.
When I was done with my search, because by the end it had indeed turned into a search and not helping clean the house, I was in the basement. I'd wanted to check my old toy box. My parents came down, turned on the light and started yelling at me for losing the box. I showed it to them, and followed them upstairs.
The Ballards and the Ashland family were there. The party was taking place outside, in a tent in the backyard. Andrew Ballard, my cousin and I decided to take a walk. We walked for about 10 miles along the side of a 6-lane highway in the middle of nowhere. We found a cobra, and named him Moses for some reason. We put a little collar on him and led him around. Eventually we made our way back to the house without turning around.
I took my comrades down to the basement to show them my plethora of Pokemon cartridges. Then we heard a lot of yelling from upstairs. One of the dogs had fallen ill. The cops came over to figure this out. Andy and Lucy from Twin Peaks were there. The chief suspect in this case was Moses. I looked everywhere for proof that Moses didn't do it, but I couldn't find any and they took him away.
At the end of the dream I had to get Andy and Lucy to confess their love for each other.
