this is only the middle part of the dream, but the most vivid. i’m eating from this tupperware container full of something. it’s delicious, and as i’m eating it, i notice all these small bugs in it. there’s all kinds… they might not actually exist in real life, even. there’s these little flying fly-like creatures, and a red thing that kind of looks like a cross between a worm and a silverfish. i’m freaking out once i notice this and run out of the room and find a hairdryer. it’s this weird hairdryer that probably also doesn’t exist in real life, and i’m searching for functions on it, but every function i want (such as turning it on) is associated with a button labeled with a 5. the other thing i’m looking for, which is a sucking in feature (like a vacuum), is also associated with number 5. it took me a bit of time to find the sucking in feature, and i even asked the dude who was with me (i forget who it was) and kind of got frustrated when he didn’t know, as if it were some kind of extremely weird thing for a hairdryer to NOT have a vacuum function! anyway, i go back into the room to vacuum the things up, and stuff kinda goes into the hairdryer, but not really. particularly not the red silverfish-like ones. person with me helps get rid of some of them, but i notice they’re going all up in these blankets, and on some nearby table, too. i also know that brian [m] was around somewhere in the dream — i’m not sure in what capacity.
interpretation for “insects”:
“Insects in a dream always represent obstacles that you must overcome to reach your goals, if you manage to exterminate them or they are not bothersome to you then you will meet your obstacles with strength, and be able to overcome them. Insects also represent excessive worry over certain things, meditate to find out what they might mean to you by using all the symbols in your dream for reference.”
interpretation for “eating”:
“Dreaming of eating may denote that we lack some basic nutrient or feedback in our lives. To not eat or refuse food indicates an avoidance of growth and change. We may be attempting to isolate ourselves from others or be in conflict with ourselves over our body image.”
assessment of meaning:
i was super annoyed yesterday and went to bed at 10:30pm (early) extremely frustrated with all the little tasks i need to take care of. definitely not inaccurate in that regard.
