Donate Blood

The above title has nothing to do with this post. I just want to encourage those who are able, to give blood.

Dreams
I dreamed in code last night. Computer code. HTML code. It was very strange. It was kinda Matrix-ey, but not dark like that. Cuz I'm not Matrix-ey. Neither are my dreams. The narrator of my dream was a Chinese American man named Wittman Ah Sing, a character from "The Fifth Book of Peace" by Maxine Hong Kingston. Because that was what I was reading as I fell asleep. I had another dream (not in code and not narrated) that there was a pretty little chubby baby playing on my floor and that she was mine, but I didn't realize it at first. Because she didn't have my eyes. Her eyes were green. EVERYONE in my family has blue eyes. So do all my 8 nieces and nephews. Oh yeah, and she was blonde. But unlike Jena, I want dark-haired babies. But even though she wasn't what I expected, I was ok with it. Really really ok with it, because she was mine. Then I dreamed that I was walking home in the dark by myself and I was afraid. I passed the house of a friend, but I didn't ask him to walk me home. I didn't even knock on his door. But I wanted to. I just kept walking. I got to a wide stone bridge and was afraid to cross it by myself, in the dark. There was a lot of water under that bridge. A stranger came on a bicycle and held my hand and walked me across the bridge. When we got to the other side, I looked closer at him and saw it was my friend. He turned around and went back the way he came. Then I dreamed I was sitting in church with my friend's mother. She was holding my hand and she was hopeful and kind. I loved her very much. Then my friend came and sat next to me and I was sad, because I missed him, even though he was sitting next to me. I woke up sad.

during finals, when i would spend all day studying latin, i would dream that i was doing latin, not in latin though, cuz unless you're the pope, you don't speak latin.

The next step is to start sleep-talking in code.
