I had a dream I was spying on someone..and then walked into an open house..like the door was wide open.. and i was watching through windows trying not to be caught..until I moved up a step up in the floor and a floor board creaked..and then a little girl shows up.. asking who I am.. and I say I'm just leaving..and I start panicking and I start to leave but I cant find my wallet... I look and it's on this 2 or 3 seater couch.. and then I rush and leave hoping she doesnt tell on me while she asks me questions like a curious toddler and isnt scared of me.. I go home.. but I'm in my childhood home..and I'm about to talk to roommates..and there is the little girl already talking to them.. but she asks me more questions.. like my middle name and where I was born... and then i woke up..

Something for Freudians
I have a dream to share, I have my own interpretation, but since I can't really detach from my own persona my interpretation is going to be limited and that is when you come into play :) I am also going to add some basic context to the events.
All the places and people in this dream are real. I am in a cellar with my mother where we *question* my female friend. She acts like a dog in subtle ways - the way she looks at us and the way she sits on the floor (like our dog does). My mother claims that my friend is a chinese spy (The friend is in reality from Western Asia, meanwhile my family is from Europe) and wants her to confess it, but the friend denies it. I am defying my mom and trying to protect my friend. Eventually my mother or both of us (I am not 100% sure if it's just her) start to strangle her and scratch on her neck. But she keeps denying it. My mother then finds a teabag at her and tears it, spilling all the grains of tea until she finds one bigger grain which she believes is a *bug.* My friend then tries to bite me, but I flinch back so she doesn't bite my nose off. (This is also a thing my dog does).
I am very interested in your opinions and thoughts on this dream. Also feel free to ask about anything :) Also if so, judge my subconscious gently <3

i had a dream that my dog (who i love dearly) was a MAC-9 submachine gun and i was doing detective work with her
i’ve been missing my dog a lot since i moved out, and i think of her frequently. anyways, i just had a dream that she was a MAC-9 submachine gun, like a dog but with a handle, trigger, clip, stock, barrel, i mean she was a gun, it’s super hard to explain but imagine a dog gun and you might get close. i was using her to do detective work, and was snooping around and getting in gunfights with perps but my gun was a doggy MAC-9. what could this even mean? i even remember petting and feeding the dog gun, and being happy to be around my canine queen.
i even nuzzled her and got licked in the face, just like how i have a million times in the past, but she was a compact machine gun and i was a old-school detective wearing a wide brimmed hat and a trenchcoat. what? just, what

Had a dream I met Snoop Dogg and we were at a party.
I vaguely remember but he was pretty cool and chill guy that didn't say much. He was wearing a cool outfit and his sunglasses. I remember Snoop was giving me advice cuz for some reason I got into a fight with my mom.
I think in this dream I had moved out from my mom's house and she was upset. I also remember traveling or something that mom wasn't happy about.
But Snoop was saying something about how I'm "more well traveled" than my mom. Idk what he was trying to say about that. Like idk if he meant to say I'm more knowledgeable than her or like I'm more willing to leave the nest despite what she says? I'm 27F btw so I'm trying to move out.
I just remember being supportive and him just fist bumping me saying to text him if I ever needed anything.
