As I got into position, waiting for our command to attack from Tȟašúŋke Witkó (Crazy Horse), all I could think about was the dream I had last night. All I remember from the dream is a loud bang then total darkness. I had no idea what my dream meant, was I to die or was someone else. The thought never left my head. So I waited there on top of the ridge overlooking The Little Bighorn River down below the Greasy Grass field. It was rather chilly that mid-June morning, which was unusual for this time of year.
Dreams have puzzled philosophers for thousands of years and only recently dreams have been subjected to empirical research and scientific study. So what are dreams? Dreams are any thoughts, images, or emotions that are expressed during certain stages of sleep, mostly during stage five, known as REM, where the brain increases in activity. Dreams can range from being extremely vivid to very vague, filled with varying types of emotions such as joy, sadness, or fright, and can also be completely clear and understandable or totally unclear and confusing.
At 2:45 on the first Monday of freshman year a crowd gathered around the little theater. There were hugs, high-fives, congratulations, and tears ripping through the crowd. Someone new would join and the interactions would start all over again. It was the cast list.
RING RING! “Come to Gavin’s AMAZING end of the year party! We have games, food, and especially FUN!!! I you can make it, it’ll be a blast!” Gavin’s text made me feel like a million bucks. I love parties like I love my mother. I accepted the invite, and when the day came, on a Thursday during Summer, I was there, having a hotdog and a Coke in my hand. The hotdog had a strange smell, although it tasted great. The Coke was delicious and very bubbly, and as brisk as a morning dew. Most of my friends were there, Joey (both of them), Logan, Zach, and of course, Gavin. The tall Joey, he has a knack for adventure, and let’s just say cats aren’t his favorite animal. The smaller one is a good friend of Gavin, and always makes sure he has the best relationships with his teachers. Zach is a comedian,
In those three paragraphs, the ones that stand out are the second and last. The second paragraph shows the importance of Johannes’ dreams and how they are actually him conversing with his ancestral spirits and dying for a short period of time. These spirits would manifest either good dreams or nightmares. Once Johannes woke up, he had to accomplish the tedious task of getting interpreted by the oracle known as his mother or father. Depending on who Johannes asked, his mother or father construne two very different interpretations. This leads into the importance of the third paragraph or one sentence stated. It states, “If I ate more liver my patience would grow, if I ate more spleen my hatred of white people would grow” (Mathabane 101). Although

My character name is Joseph. He is sixteen years old and in tenth grade. He is average height with blond hair. He lives in the 1930’s, and he was nine when World War II started. He is resilient, and he is also honest. He lost his older brother at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. He tries to hide the sorrow of losing his brother Jackson, from his little sister and his parents, trying not to affect them. Every once in awhile he gets mad at the Japanese for killing his brother.
Pharaoh called for Joseph and he was quickly bought to Pharaoh after shaving and changing his clothes. Pharaoh told Joseph that no one he has told his dreams to could interpret them, but he heard that Joseph could. Joseph replies, “ It is not my power, but of God. God can set your mind at ease.” Pharaoh explains both of his dreams to Joseph. Joseph interprets both of Pharaohs dreams by explaining that it is God warning them in advanced to prepare for the seven years of famine. Joseph also explains that it would be wise to put someone in charge of preparing for the famine. Pharaoh decided that the only person who would be wise to oversee such a daunting task would be Joseph, so Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of the whole land of Egypt. Pharaoh changed Joesph name to Zaphennath-paneah. He also gave Joseph a wife named Asenath. As Joseph had predicted there was seven years of great prosperity and he begun to gather all the crop throughout Egypt and placed them in

Johnny stood in the doorway, gazing out upon the melting colors of the rising sun. He took a breath of the dewy morning air and thought about the night before. Most people call it crazy, and maybe it was at first. But now, after so many millennia, the supposed ‘crazy’ night have become and every night and dreadfully boring affair. Life for Johnny wasn’t always as smooth and distasteful. He remembers back when he went by another name, a name so well-known and hated. When he was new and the human kind was but a newly growing tree, he was first introduced into the world.
Joseph, a sheepherder, lives in the land of Canaan with his father and twelve brothers. He was the second youngest of the brothers and started having dreams when he was seventeen. His first dream was that they were all binding their sheaves and his grew tall and proud while theirs bowed down to him. The second dream he had was that the sun and stars praised him. Both of these dreams made Joseph seem like he was the greatest and that everyone and everything else should praise him. Joseph had always been his father’s favorite son; but after these dreams, they hated him even more. The brothers become jealous and plan to get Joseph out of the way. At first, they just want to kill him; however, they realize that they will gain more if they sold
Joseph’s story is a great reminder of how God can turn a devastating situations into a something good. There are times in our lives we think why would this happen? Or why would God allow this? I’m sure when Joseph’s brothers sold him as a slave, he had many whys when talking with God or as he sat in a prison cell, he was human just like you and I. There had to be times of fear and doubt. Joseph persevered. Due to his faithfulness and trust, God continued to bless him, and he became the ruler over Egypt. We do serve a mighty God! I enjoyed reading your
Dreams are series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep. Most of the time, they depart dramatically from reality. Dreams that reflect the day’s experience tend to single out sensory experiences or objects from walking life and mix them together. The content of dreams takes snapshots from the day rather than retelling the stories of what you have done or seen.
Joseph hasn't really had a career. But in his teens he would earn money by doing jobs for others on their farms. In 827 Joseph got the gold plates and started translating them. It was very surprising since he didn't have a good education. He was married on June 18, 1827 to Emma Hale. They had 11 children, but only 5 lived past infancy. Tons of people didn't like what he was doing. Joseph got tarred and feathered about 3
I have had nightmares that proclaimed me unable to sleep; I have experienced realistic and authentic comprehensible dreams and vague projections; and I have had dreams that came true. However, what do dreams mean?
