not sure why my fb status doesn't show up on blogger. not that I write anything earth-shattering as my status, but still ... if something is offered as an option, I will always say 'yes', as a matter of principle. in any case, today I will write my status out for you, like a segue:
Kristina Campbell dreamt she saw her first bear. It was huge. I was pathetic.
am I the only one who analyzes my dreams as they are happening? I can totally change it up, too, if I am so inclined.
in this dream, I was in a pretty open field. like at camp. I like camp. I do not like camp-ing. I never sleep when we go camping. ever. there is always someone right smack dab next to us who decides that drinking a 2-4 on their own is a good idea (because of course 'they' are never obnoxious when 'they' are drunk, everyone else is). oh, and they don't need a lick of sleep either. and they speak french. and i inevitably end up yelling at them around 4 a.m.
ask my family.
so, last night, as i am walking through this pretty open field (meaning the field was generally spacious, not attractive) I see a bear. big, light brown with dark brown accents and massive. I look around me, quickly, to plan my evasive manoeuver. I think how I should have had this worked out previously, just in case. I see some cabin-type buildings to my right, quite some distance off, with trees nicely interspersed. I like trees. I liked how they were randomly placed, like this was a real forest at one point.
I hadn't decided if the bear had seen me or not. I was hoping for not. mostly, I was overcome by the fact that I did not know what I was supposed to be doing in this scenario. if you know me at all, you understand that I have an innate need that drives me most of the time; a serious need to believe, in myself, that I am doing the 'right' thing at all times (unless, of course, I have purposely chosen to do the 'wrong' thing, usually out of spite). I was disturbed. I ran into a bathroom stall and stood on the seat.
just like I used to do in grade school when I didn't want to go outside for recess.
