dream where the earth was ending and in order to stop it i had to change my time to military time
it was a beautiful day i was just sitting down and enjoying my life when all of a sudden i see a warning on the news saying "the sun has officially lost all of it's teeth this is the end of the world as we know it" so i became all scared and i did not want to die however it was already too late the sun lost all of it's teeth and then exploded killing everybody, i then woke up again with the same thing on the news happening however i then realized that they mentioned when the sun exploded which gave me an idea and after multiple deaths i finally came up with the idea, i then changed my time to military time and then suddenly the sun regrew some teeth which made me realize that this could be the perfect plan so anyways like a normal person i ran up to the white house and then beat up obama in fierce combat so i could announce that everybody should change their time to military time in a very good obama voice, obama then said "what the hell are you doing" and then shot me with a ray gun however i dodged it and then the sun used it to brush their teeth, so basically i saved the world by telling everybody to brush their time and change their teeth

I dreamed I saw a dead friend, who told me I would die on the anniversary of her death.
I had a good friend who died last year on October 17th. She dated one of my good friends and as such we grew close. Important Characters are Me, my friend Kyle, my friend Roy, my deceased friend Rose, and another friend Alisha.The nightmare is as follows.
It started with me, my siblings, and my mom packing up her car. We were seemingly leaving and trying to do so in a hurry. But I got the impression we took to long, and when we began to pull out of the driveway we hit my friend Kyle's car as he was trying to pull into the carport. We canceled our plans to leave and me and Kyle decided to drive to what I think was a high-school reunion.
We arrived at the event, and it was almost like a chapel/gym hybrid with large windows towards the front of the room. I saw most of the people that I went to high school with conversing and interacting with each other. I saw my friend Roy who was our senior class president cutting up pineapple and putting it into a drink. He said he didn't have enough pineapple and me and my friends laughed at him for it. Now the nightmare/dream starts.
I walked outside for some fresh air, and when I came back I saw my friend Rose, who is dead, and my friend Alisha who is alive. They both looked like spirits however. I asked Rose how I could see her, and asked if I was going to die soon. She said yes I was going to die, she started becoming more solid. I asked her if she could as God of I could live longer. She said that she would ask but its going to happen anyway. She started getting more solid, so I left the room to try and escape my death.
As I walked into the foyer to escape, a blonde skinny teenager came in. He pulled out a gun, and I was shot with either lightning, or the gun. I don't know which but I felt myself dying. I was then teleported to a city block where I saw a newspaper on the road. I picked it up and it had a picture of me, saying I died on October 17th. The day was Friday. I woke up and wrote the dream my journal quickly. I then went back to sleep, and had a dream where me and rose went to Wendy's just like we used too when she was alive. I ordered her food and we hung out.
That was the end of it, and it's not as scary as some experience. But I woke up sweating and scared. Thanks for listening.

Had a dream where I was shot twice
There was more to the dream but I only remember being in a stand off with two guys in suits. I thought they were bluffing and had no ammo so I told them to turn around and walk away, and I got shot in my right pectoral area and my side. I turned around and got behind a couch and this guy shot them a couple times. It felt so weird, it pinched but wasn’t that painful. Where I got shot just felt really warm and tingly and I could feel the blood dripping down my skin. I then was outside trying to get an ambulance to pick me up ( idk why I didn’t think of calling them). It was in a forest and the only open area was the road and the pIot of land for the house. It was a small house to that I recognized but that was probably only cause it was a dream. I was there for quite a while with some other guy and then I woke up.

The greatest pain I ever felt
I was shot somewhere in the chest and was immediately unconscious. After I woke up I trembled like all over searching for the spot I was shot pressing against it to stop the bleeding and there the pain kicked in it was the most painful thing I ever experienced I never felt something like that not even in real life. So I immediately removed my hand, my breathing was out of control, I couldn't breathe. I begged my mom to take me to the hospital, but she refused because it was nothing serious, she said. Somehow I convinced her to take me to the hospital and I got some meds against the pain, and it actually stopped till the effect wore of, and it kicked in again I was so terrified in the dream but know then I woke up it was like the greatest pain I ever felt, and I'm ready for part two.
Sorry if I made some grammar or spelling mistakes :(

First time I've dreamed vividly in a while, what does it mean- someone shot me in the butt!
So, apparently I was hiding in the hall closet for some reason, not just in the closet but actually laying on one of the shelves. The closet doors were open and there was a figure (not sure who) that had a gun. I also had a gun and there was this sort of standoff.
As if to say, from my perspective I didn't feel like I wanted to shoot. I just wanted things to smooth over, I think I knew this person?
Anyways, they start to walk away, and while walking away they close the closet door and there is an audible gunshot. The vision in my dream I saw the bullet hole in the closet door and smoke coming through, but didn't immediately know who shot. It was almost as if it was a scene from a movie where suspense was building in the script, which way the smoke was moving, could I observe who shot which direction? Was it me shooting out of fear, or me getting shot.
I didn't feel anything, but noticed in my dream kind of pulling the waistband of my pants down and then I saw it. I was shot in the butt!
What the fuck does that even mean?
Help me interpret my dream please.
