River Sticks and Birthday Wishes

I don't have time for much today, but I had an interesting dream. So keeping with the 10-lb. Marshmallow Challenge spirit I'll tell you about it.

I was near this river, and I was with a massive group of people and we all had sticks about 1m long. The river was lined with trees, and looked like it was winding through a forest. We were told that our job was to go along the river, and "clean" it with our sticks. So we walked in and along the river (it wasn't very deep) until we got to a place where the river just stopped. It looked like it was plugged up with sand and to "clean" the river we had to push the sand away with our sticks. So all of us are standing there swinging our sticks trying to clean out this river. Apparently it was very important, because when I woke up to the sound of my roommate's hair dryer my subconscious self tried to go back to sleep and finish cleaning out the river!
Pretty. Odd.

Your Day in Six Words

This was a challenge I got off of a website. To keep a journal for everyday for six months summarizing your day in six words. So, for day one (yesterday):

Happy birthday to my wonderful father!


  1. Hahaha sounds like a pretty bizarre dream! :) Maybe the river had religious significance or something.

  2. Hmmmm... maybe! After I dream I usually try to think about my day and see if my dreams had any connection to the day before. Now that I think about it, I remember asking my dad if he wanted to go kayaking with me this weekend...
