[Error: unknown template qotd]I don't have recurring dreams so much as recurring bizarro versions of real places in dreams. For instance, my neighborhood is relatively hilly and there's a river, bridge and woods behind my house. In my dreams, it's very spread out and flat, with little to no woods usually and the river doesn't exist at all unless it's flooding my backyard. I'm generally running for my life through the weirdly sprawling plains of my hilly, well-settled street. I hate it. It's cold and huge and wrong.

Dream!Melrose High School is huge and mall-like with a giant, two floor glass-enclosed bookstore where the library is really located. Reaching the upper levels of the exhageratedly tall building is usually accomplished by riding terrifyingly precarious escalators with no sides or handrails. One of my more recent mental renovations was a two floor bathroom with a hole in the floor you could use to see into the first floor stalls. Or fall through. Yeah, fun.

I have a problem with bathrooms in dreams. They're always broken, or the door won't shut, or someone's always in the room and won't leave. And locker rooms, which are always cavernous and dank and sprawling and definitely underground.

Dream!Saugus High is even more spread out than the real building and it inevitably has a large multilevel pool (but not on the third floor, no matter the rumors). I've usually missed weeks or months of school and have piles of makeup work that I haven't even started to work on and I either have some problem with my art class or gym class with the scary pool. I don't know how to swim any better in my dreams than I do in real life.

Whenever I dream of my childhood home, all our things (beds, dressers, clothes, etc) are still there, mouldering away in the eight (!) years since we moved. We're always there under different circumstances, but the appearance never changes. Why is our stuff still there? We obviously took all of it when we moved. Why do I almost never dream of Gardner? My former teachers and classmates play fast and loose with which dream school they're supposed to be at, but I never dream of Gardner classmates and teachers.

It is a very rare thing for me to have pleasant real-life based dreams.

[Error: unknown template qotd]My first post was about fanfic obsession and school dreams. I had just graduated high school and I was constantly dreaming about not graduating because I'd forgot to do some assignment or another. Incidentally, I hate dream!Saugus High School. Dream!Melrose High is so much cooler and lacking in nightmarishly deep swimming pools (and inappropriate then-candidate Obama). Dream!Gardner High is nearly as nonexistant as my memories of the place.

I signed my first entry as I used to sign my old IRL journal, a composition notebook with a Nickelodeon bookcover taped on it that I've had since I was 11. I'll sign this the same.

The world is changing and follow the circle.

Fake Edit: I finally bit the bullet and downloaded Firefox 3. I only lost one add-on to incompatiblity. Not bad.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Gosh... You've Got Mail? No, it makes me think of fall more than Christmas. Um, I couldn't get away with Die Hard could I? OK, maybe Love Actually or A Muppet Christmas Carol. Or The Poseidon Adventure for New Years. I think I have more favorite holiday-themed TV episodes, if by favorite I mean they make me feel like it's Christmas. Like Not Even a Mouse for Pretender or Fountain for So Weird. I watch those and it is Christmas. My ultimate holiday-themed thing right now is She Loves Me. What I would give to be able to see last summer's production of that again. I'm really missing it.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I can has both? XD

Seriously, though, a year ago I would have said the ocean without hesitation. That was before Williamstown stole my heart. Now I actually can't decide.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Well, this one is a no brainer for me, huh?

The Pretender.
