Idreamt that I was in Paris, France attending the pre-wedding party ofmy cousin who was getting married within the next three weeks. Thedream began in New York when boarding a flight to France, Paris atthe John F. Kennedy International Airport. I was accompanied by myfamily, close relatives and people from the neighborhood. I was sothrilled partially because it was my first time to board a plane andbecause I was headed towards the most romantic city in the world. Icould not contain my enthusiasm as I constantly took photos of theentire group at the airport`s lobby area awaiting for the Air Franceplane. Although it was chilly and snowy, the weather did not spoilthe mood, everything seemed amazing and the trip was something I waslooking forward to enjoy. I sat next to my childhood friend whom Ihad not seen for a very long time. At first it was rather awkward ofhow to reconnect, but we talked about our past shared memories. Asfar as I can remember, she was one of the first people to befriend inthe new school I enrolled in while I was 10 years old. The flightwas at 9am New York time. After a few hours we arrived at the Orlyairport in Paris. Upon arrival, the bridegroom to be, was wearing abeautiful dark colored French suit accompanied by his friends. It wasa sight to behold as other passengers stood by, watching us exchangegreetings and pleasantries. From the dream, I could see myself andmy reactions of reigniting past friendships and relationships withlong lost friends and family members. Moreover, everything wascolorful.
About5minutes to 3am I woke up overjoyed because the impending weddingseemed to be a memorable one. I was extremely glad that I wasinvolved in my cousin`s personal life that she prioritized our familyby including us in the pre-wedding, wedding and reception ceremonies.In my dream, I was overwhelmed with joy.

I stood my ground, but due to theirlarge number, I was overpowered and made away with my small hand bag,bag pack and other valuables. I saw myself lying on the sidewalkagonizing in pain at the loss of my items which had my personalbelonging. All this took place in the afternoon after my work shiftat McDonalds.

Italso shows the disconnection from my friends because of unresolvedpersonal issues within my life. There are conflicting issues becauseI have neglected some issues in my life. My childhood life was somuch isolated because I was mischievous and never used to interactother pupil`s in a friendly manner. The reason why this dream keepsrecurring is because most of the people I used to ignore are doingmuch better in their lives compared to me. Those I despised are farmuch ahead of me and are stable and the society is looking upon themin one way or the other..
