On recurring dreams...and the rain!

I have three recurring dreams. (Is that weird?) One is about riding cars, one is about staircases, and the third one is about school.  I'm going to talk about the last kind because I just woke up from having one this morning.

I've been having this dream for many years now.  Each time, it seems so real that I would feel a great sense of relief everytime I get to that point where I'm still sleeping and yet I realize it's all just a dream and I couldn't wait to wake up and get back to reality.  (When you're living a dream, what is it that you do when you sleep? Have nightmares?:P) Anyway, about the comes in different versions, but it's always about flunking a subject in my last semester in college that I had totally forgotten about during the semester because I was too busy living my life.  It's usually some really interesting course 100 or Soc Sci II.:P  And in my dreams (or nightmares), flunking that one subject would always mean that I couldn't graduate, hence I would not be able to do what I actually want to do, which has nothing to do with what I studied for all those years.  My friend Lyra says it probably means I'm scared of failure. Pete says it could mean I still need to continue "learning". I say it's probably just my mediocre academic performance in college coming back to haunt me. Hehehe.

This morning, the dream was even worse, I was flunking ALL my subjects. All 21 units of them (Yeah, I saw my UP Form 5 in my dream.)  And I was like...Why did I forget that I was enrolled in these courses? Oh yeah, because I was too busy shooting and editing stuff for my clients! Hehehe.  And in my dream, I was preparing to talk to Pete and let him tell me that it's ok if I failed those subjects. That I didn't need them in my work anyway. And then at that point, reality started to set in and I woke up thanking the heavens that it was all a dream. And there's my happy ending.:)

In other's raining!

First, let me just say that I LOVE the sun.  It makes me so happy.  As a photographer, I use it as much as I can for as long as I can.  And I'm usually bummed when it rains on a day when I have a shoot. These past few weeks however, there's been too much sun and no rain at all.  And I think I am one with every Filipino in praying to God to please make it rain. Yesterday, I had an engagement session scheduled. When I woke up to the sound of drizzle, I prayed, God, please make it rain...tomorrow...Hehehe. But the truth was, at the back of my mind, I was already thinking of possible shots in the rain. I knew I wouldn't mind it as much if our shoot got rained out. I knew we could figure out something. I just wanted it to rain.

And what do you know? My prayers were answered. We got really nice weather yesterday (aside from a light drizzle at the beginning of the shoot) and this morning, I woke up to the sound of real rain!  I don't think I've ever been as happy about having rain as I was today.:) And I'm sure everyone was just as happy about it.

And just to make this babbling less boring, here is a sneak peek from the engagement session I shot yesterday.  Bubbles make me think of dreams. And I really just love the photo.:)
