    There are farmers markets around here that sell meat. Grass fed beef from local farms is especially popular there. I've never heard 'city market'. I've heard 'meat market', though.

    I attended small schools and big schools, and boys and girls always had PE together. We did the same things and played the same sports. I guess the teachers didn’t care how we worked it out, it’s not like they were teaching us how to play the sports anyway, besides giving us the rules. I think the point was just to make us exercise. We never had a PE class where we just got to wander at will and explore, even in the early grades; it was always either sports or exercises, like sit-ups, push-ups, lunges... For reasons already mentioned by others above, PE was miserable and I hated it. I got around the naked showers by wearing a swimsuit under my clothes, and showering in that (which I still didn’t like, but it was better). I brought underwear with me in my book bag, and changed in a bathroom stall after my shower.
  3. There’s a documentary about sleep paralysis called “The Nightmare” on Netflix, if anyone’s interested.
  4. I’ve only had one flying dream. I remember it distinctly because it was one of the only dreams I’ve ever had where I felt happy. When I was younger I used to have a lot of tornado dreams, missing the bus dreams, and dreams where I had to drive a car without knowing how to do it, usually in the dark. I often ended up driving into a lake and sinking in those dreams. I think I may have had sleep paralysis a few times, I’m not sure. There was a period of time where I repeatedly saw a demon in my nightmares. He was all black with sickly yellow eyes, and an unnaturally long smile that spread all the way across his face. He would taunt me about being alone and unloved, and slowly crawl over me in bed, and laugh in my face; and his laugh would rise gradually louder and higher, until it sounded completely inhuman. I would try to scream, but it seemed like he was doing something to prohibit it, and the sound would come out muffled, as if I were screaming underwater. The strangest part is that this was happening during the same time that I was spending a lot of time with an old acquaintance, who was a self-proclaimed witch. She claimed to have a demonic attachment since childhood, but she said a lot of things, and though I am open-minded, I am also far too much of a skeptic to just believe everything I hear. What’s weird though is that at the same time I started having these nightmares, without ever mentioning it to her, she told me that her attachment had started latching on to me, and attacking me through my dreams. According to her, I was a “better meal” due to my deep depression and PTSD. (She was actually acting quite possessive and jealous about it supposedly having left her for me, which weirded me out a bit.) Eventually I stopped seeing her (not because of this stuff, she just got too busy), and the demon nightmares went away in tandem. About a month after my last one, again without mentioning it to her, I got a call from her saying that the demon had come back to her. To this day, I still wonder if there was something to all that.

    When I was in Scotland, it was hit or miss whether I could understand someone. Some people spoke very clearly, others were met with a vacant stare as I tried to decipher what sounded like another language. Regarding the privacy issues, I feel the same way. I’m an intensely private person, and I don’t like the direction things are going. I usually just get odd and baffled looks about it though, like I’m such a weirdo for wanting privacy or expressing any discomfort over the invasion of my privacy.

    My PE classes were all either inside the gymnasium or in a wide open field enclosed by a fence. There was no escape, lol.

    Introverts, how is your day?

    Oooo that sounds like something I'd want to go to. Was it for your schooling, or just a random thing?

    My high school didn't have theater classes, but there was drama club, an extracurricular that took place after school. The drama club performed all the school plays. My junior high also had a drama club, which I auditioned for, but was turned down. When I was a kid I had a strong interest in theater; and like Carol, I always tried out for plays at my church and school, but was rejected in favor of more popular students and teacher favorites. I'm still interested in theater, but these days I'd be more interested in behind-the-scenes activities than acting. I've looked into volunteering, but I'm always told that the theaters have too many volunteers as it is. There weren't too many art classes at my high school, and most of them only popped up for a year or two. The only one that stuck around on a more permanent basis was a drawing class. I got into the pottery class while they had it, and there was a piano class my senior year only. For music, there was band and choir, but both were after-school extracurriculars you had to audition for, like drama club. Choir was eliminated after my sophomore year. ^ Same.

    I was the lead in a play once, in 3rd grade. (Only chosen/forced into it because the play involved singing, and I was the best singer in my class.) I was a firefly. My name was Shirley (Surely) Shine. My two firefly friends were Gladly Glow and Brightly Beam.
  10. I think the bathroom ones happen when I actually need to use the bathroom, but I can't wake up enough yet to do so and my brain knows I shouldn't go in my sleep. So it creates a situation where I have to keep looking for an appropriate place to go until I finally wake up.
  11. ^ Ditto. ^ Ditto again. ^ So many dittos! I have those dreams too, very similar, and very often. I'd even say that the vast majority of my dreams are frustration dreams. My dad never has them, he always has positive dreams in which things work out in his favor or he solves every predicament he faces. I can't imagine that, I never have those. I don't know about my mom. I have had 'premonition dreams' on occasion, but never about anything useful. My parents have both had them as well and my grandmother actually had a few that were useful, so I guess it runs in the family.

    Lol. They couldn't help themselves with the nursery puns. I like to imagine the spider knew exactly what it was doing and giggled to itself every time.
  13. I have a lot of those. Do you have an example you want to give? Like your most recent one?

    Introverts, how is your day?

    "Get Another Boyfriend" by the Backstreet Boys is now stuck in my head, and I hold you responsible.
  15. ^ I want to react to that with a sad face and a laughing face simultaneously, lol.
