A few months later, I finally got myself out of bed early enough to get to drawing class. Well, half of it. I also made it to the gym today. Not too shabby. Oh, and the Orange Box finally arrived. Apparently, if you talk about something long enough, your brother will by it for you for your birthday.

Mardis Gras

Third Eye Blind was playing at Mardis Gras today. So, I went to go check it out. Its been a while since I'd been to Universal anyway. I got to meet the Mouth of the South Jimmy Hart today. It was really pretty random.

Reoccuring Dreams

Last night/this morning I had a couple of dreams that fall in-line with themes that are common reoccurances. They may be part of the same dream, I don't remember all of the details.

I do remember walking around a really large concrete building. Like a giant mall or museum that was 7 or 8 stories tall. I was walking around with ice skates on. I felt bad that I was ruing the blades by walking on the pavement. I didn't want to take them off because I had no other shoes. Plus, I remember feeling threatened or at least like I was being pursued. There weren't a lot of people around. I remember seeing some displays set up. I don't know if I was trying to find the exit, or find someone else I was there with. I wondered around through endless dimly lit hallways.

After pushing my way through a stuck door, I found myself on the roof next to gigantic air conditioning units. I could hardly see because it was so bright outside. I felt that I was vulnerable on the open roof, so I went back in the doorway. I rushed through the maze of halls, but could not find my way back.

Later on, the scene changed. Probably because my alarm woke me up and I fell back asleep. It was now night time and it was very dark outside. I was riding in a van with my family. We were trying to find a bridge so that we could go outside and look up at the stars without any light pollution from the city. We were having a hard time finding the bridge because of the heavy darkness. I climbed out onto some kind of part of the van that had a glass roof and a glass front. I was able to see the reflection of the blue moon on the water and new the bridge lay ahead. As we approached the bridge I saw that it was very long because the other end faded off into the horizon. We drove out a couple of miles and my dad decided to stop so we could all get out. Oddly enough, we pulled over to the side of the bridge where there was a gigantic factory. I was surprised that there would be such a large building out in the middle of the open water. I didn't want to be by the large building, and I was mad that my father hadn't parked on the farside of the lanes where there was some sort of viewing platform.

Having only shot a rifle only once before, I was a little nervous about going to the gun range yesterday. My friend from work asked if I wanted to go, and I thought it would be an interesting way to spend an afternoon. Plus, I was really anxious to see the P-90 tactical assault rifle. I've seen it in video games and movies before. I've always thought the design was really radical compared to other rifles. Finally, I was up to shoot. The gun was calibrated and my nerves were on edge. The people on the lane next to us were shooting an AR-15 which was really fucking loud. So I was anticipating the P-90 to be the same. The first time I shot, I shot a WInchester 300 Magnum. I was ready for the recoil, and mangaed to catch the back of the scope on my brow. The P-90 had really low recoil and was really quiet comparatively. I shot three rounds and brought the target back in. My grouping was really tight. My friend asked if I had shot 3 rounds, because there were only two holes. Then he noticed that two of the hols were stacked, and that 2 rounds nearly passed through the same hole. It ended up being a lot of fun. I would defininetly consider going again. Afterwards I got to hang out at my friends house. I also got to play Portal which I have been looking forward to for a while. I really like playing puzzle games. Portal challenges you to think about spatial relationships in entirely different ways.
