Finally! Haha I got lucid for a quick minute and remembered the first part of my dream goal. I walked up to the nearest dream character, a lady who was standing around the shopping store I was at, and asked "hey, where are you from?"
She turned to me and put her hands on her hips- "same as you, do you know where you're from?" She walked away laughing and refused to take any more questions. I wandered around the store some more before slipping into a dream story.
