I was 18, the dream lasted a few seconds and it felt like I was inside a virtual reality type setup. Similar to lawnmower man. But the clarity was like that of a 4K screen wrapped around my head. I floated for a few seconds and managed to fly. I could feel my body lift and laughing at the experience. I also felt like I was in control and self aware that I was dreaming. Only to wake up after a few seconds.
In my most recent dream, which made even less sense than most of them, fencing with katanas (without protective tips) was an Olympic sport, but the "katanas" looked more like really long, serrated steak knives. The last Olympic gold medalist for women's steak-knife-fencing was a huge celebrity who had recently been suspected of murdering a bunch of people with her sword, though these were pretty much rumors rather than actual legal allegations. From what I remember, the victims had been determined to die from wounds by a serrated knife, but there was no evidence pointing to who actually carried out the murders - people just pointed to the most prominent person who was associated with that weapon. She went from being really admired to being the most hated person in the U.S., and despite the lack of evidence that she murdered anybody, the news covered the story constantly. At the end of my dream I was a fencer as well, practicing my moves (which would make a real fencer facepalm) with my giant steak knife. I was basically just prancing around and sticking my three-foot-long steak-sword in the air like an uncoordinated 3-year-old with a toy sword.

this is one dream but cuts back and forth between 2 completely different settings
so i'm at a pool and on the side it says "to take 2 pictures " not sure what it means, then i cut to a neighborhood street and there's these two people and one guy is like i want to buy that house and tear it down, so the other guy takes him to the lot it's an old historical mansion cut back to the pool now theres two horses riding on stationary bikes facing each other, and they're supposdly smoking crack but i don't actually see any, and one goes "mmmm good crack" and the other nods his head in agreement. now back to the house and the guy who took the other guy there is like why would you want to tear this down? and he's like it's not spacious enough and the garage is ugly. and then he's like maybe i'll just tear down the garage. (it was added in the last 10-15 years and didn't really fit in the last of the house)
When I took a nap today, something weird happened. My dream-self fell asleep during my dream, so instead of actually dreaming, there was a period during my dream when I was asleep, then woke up (still in my dream) after a while, and somebody in my dream told me that I had been sleeping. Meta-sleep, so to speak.
This was probably a first for me.
There was some area where we practiced magic. At one point I was having a magical battle with my friend, I was a lizard-wizard who shot streams of magic and she was a butterfly who flew around me in circles.
I can vaguely recall how other parts of the dream felt but I can't see enough to put it in words. Hmm.
The last two nights I've been awakened by the voice of a child talking in my ear (the same child). Yesterday it said, "I see her." Today it said "Joni." I'd like to say I'm dreaming this; I'm concerned I'm not. It ends tonight..
