I woke up in the bedroom of my old house. The layout of my room was all in the right place such as the window on the left side of my bed and the view of my door at the front right side of the room. The first thing that came to my mind when I "woke-up" in my dream was the uncertainty of if I was really awake. At first I thought I was lucid but when I tried to make something happen with my own will power nothing happened which lead me to believe I wasn't dreaming even though I was. Although my room looked the same as the one in real life, when I looked out the window it was much different. My house is a one story building but what I saw outside was a view looking over a vast distance. In the far distance I could see many small apartment buildings about half the size of the building I was in. Beyond that there was a huge body of water and behind that was a metropolitan area (similar to New York City or Hong Kong). In the dream however it didn't seem illogical that the landscape has changed so much. A few moments after looking out the window I began to see the body of water form into a gigantic tidal wave and was headed towards my building. The tidal wave begins to come closer engulfing and crashing into the smaller apartment buildings in front of me. It was a scary sight but not too the point of terror as which I would imagine it to be like in real life. The tidal wave calmed down and luckily it didn't reach my building floor. I looked out into the distance again and saw another tidal wave forming. It repeated the events that happened a little earlier where at the end the wave didn't reach my floor. After a couple of waves however I realized it was actually getting higher and higher every time. I do not know why I didn't react right away after the first wave but when I realized the wave was getting higher than the previous, I immediately thought that I had to get my family and I to safety before it was too late. I gathered my family and told them to quickly collect only essential things and that we had to drive far away from our house before the wave gets big enough to engulf us. What happened next seemed almost foolish and illogical as I saw my family cooking noodles to eat. The sight of this angered me because I was worried about getting everyone to safety before it was too late. I started to yell at my mom that we don't have time to cook/eat noodles. At this moment my "younger brother" came to me in a panicky manner saying there someone at the door. This part is really strange to me because I'm a single child in real life but in the dream I didn't feel that anything was wrong. It almost felt natural and the thought of questioning why I knew he was my brother did not even pass my mind in a single bit. Continuing with my dream, I responded to my brother's words and proceeded to the main door. Once I got there I peeked through the side window next to the main door and saw a family outside. The family consisted of 1 or 2 kids, a woman, and a man who was knocking at my door. I opened my door slightly and the man in a worried/panicked expression was pleading for him and his family to seek shelter in my house. I turned my face away not knowing what to do but I didn't close the door. I then had a feeling that I wanted to let them in but first I proceeded to talk with my family about this situation but before I could get there I woke up. I never write anything about my dreams even vivid ones but this one felt really real in terms of emotions and my though process in it. (If I was a good artist I would draw what I dreamed but my level of stick figure drawings won’t do the dream justice. I also don’t know if what I wrote makes sense but thanks for reading my dream.)
