I had been having a very stressful week, and had been behind in all my work. One day I decided to drink some coffee and finish most of the work do for my classes the following day. So in preperation, I went to the store and bought about half a pound of coffee beans. In order to garauntee premium caffeine content, I mixed all of the non-decaf beans together.
After I got home I took a nap and woke up at 10. After doing a bit of work, I brewed 4 cups of my premium coffee blend. It was amazingly strong. It tasted at first like cinnamon, but had an aftertaste like onions. It kept me awake and I finished what I needed.
It was late and I did not want to stay up more than I had to, so I layed down. I put on some Bad Religion and tried to go to sleep. It took a while, but I eventually slipped into a slumber. While I was sleeping I felt a massive jolt of energy surge through my body, not wholely unpleasant, but startling. Suddenly my eyelids starting blinking at an inhuman rate. I remeber staring at my wall, waiting for it to move. I got lost in its endless pattern of tiny bumps. I guess I'd call the experience ominous hallucinations. I looked around my room, everything seemed ready to contort violently, though nothing did. My eyes were still blinking rapidly. I turned again on my side and tried to fall back into a more tranquil state. The dream that I had was one of the most realist I have ever experienced. Part of my bedroom turned into my algebra classroom, and I talked to my bassist joseph for a little while, then I returned to my bed and went back to sleep. I can't recall our conversation. It all seemed a bit odd at the time but nonetheless real. Also, after only 2 hours of sleep I felt quite well rested in the morning.
Peace to all
