my change purse

-Having my usual night-before-classes-start dream last night. I always dream that I've waken up and gone to class (which in dreamland is dull) and then I hear my alarm, and realize I've been dreaming the whole time. It's a surreal sort of preparation ritual for each new semester.

-Getting the great bag I ordered on The Hunger Site in the mail today. It's lovely and big, and fair trade too! I can picture it joining me on many travels.

-Hearing "Waiting On The World To Change" by John Mayer on the radio at the exact moment that I was. I've decided I'm no good at waiting, and that the change I think the world needs is only going to happen when people stop waiting for it and start creating it (and I include myself in "people").

The school dream that I have had over and over through the years is about remembering during finals week that I enrolled in a class that I have to pass at the beginning of the semester but completely forgot to actually attend or do any work for. Now I have to ace the final, which starts in an hour, for a class that I have no clue about.

I can't tell you how many times I have jumped up in the middle of the night in a complete panic over that dream.

Yikes, that would be a scary dream. Recurring dreams are so funny. I have some recurring dreams that I remember I've had before while I'm still dreaming, and so I can change the outcome mid-dream. Those are pretty cool.

LOL I always have this dream that I have had to go back and repeat high school because somehow, I never really graduated. I never passed math....so I am there with all the "kids," an adult stuggling with algebra...

Thanks for sharing yours!
