  1. I woke crying. I remember a lot of water and at first it seemed people were having fun with it but something didn’t seem right. And then i seen myself inside a “boat” or something that seemed to be floating and i was sitting next to a woman who seemed like a good friend or family. I could not see her face much. But a woman was sitting directly in front of me also ( face to face with our knees close) she seemed older but something was strange about her eyes as if she was blind or something. She started speaking about the end of times coming and my “mama” wanted me to know that many people will die and perish and for those who are not good will have a lot of pain. I was crying in the dream and begging the woman to please tell her I’m trying. I don’t remember anything more.

I usually have a dream in which I am in examination hall to write an exam but didn’t prepare for it. feeling of restlessness prevail. most of the time same girl who is my childhood friend we studied together for 12 years decide to help me in writing exam in that hall.
