This picture doesn't actually have anything to do with my post, I just like it. Anyways...
You can tell it's Christmas dream by the nap I just had this Christmas eve. I was standing alone in this dock area that also (in my dream world) when I was in A Capella we had sung at because it had awesome sound reverberation. It was kind of dome-ish and made out of concrete and had a sweet lookout of an ocean.
Anyways while I'm standing there I just start singing this melody. Pretty soon all these random people come out of nowhere and just start singing with me. Football players, hipsters, orchestra people, just people from all walks of life. We made an awesome improv tune with harmony and everything which eventually turned into a sweet new version of adelina de maya and I was like "whoah! Football players singing adelina de maya! This is sweet!"
Next we started "Go Tell it on the Mountain" while we stared out across the ocean. It reminded me of when we sung "Hey Jude" at the band Luau thing in the sense that there was just this unified feeling. It was such a joyous experience. Then after singing we departed our ways full of joy and love for these random strangers we didn't even know.
Anyways I don't know if my subconscious really was trying to tell me something, but like most English books I read I'll find some cool meaning anyways. To me it really just goes back to my biggest wish for the whole world. The thing that depresses me most is when I see people hating each other. That's why I said what I did at the "bandimony meeting" on fall tour. I love all the people in band so much it hurts me when I see them hurt or hated.
Now obviously I'm not perfect, but I try my best, and this dream is really another reminder for me to do better, but I thought I'd share it in case anyone else feels similarly.

TED: Ideas Worth Spreading. If you don't know what TED is or have never seen a video then you need to see how awesome it is. In fact I'll post a video right here. I watched this one just barely and it was really interesting as well as humorous. Not only does TED have this guy, but there are hundreds of other similarly and even more interesting and inspiring ideas on TED.
Not only is this guy hilarious and British he also really makes you think. TED is one of those things that really inspires me to love science and technology, but it has ideas on everything from Science to Art to Global Issues. So you should acquaint yourself with it's awesomeness.

So tonight I was reading back through my journal (see earlier post for an explanation of its awesomeness) and I read something I had written that really struck a chord with me and I had forgotten over the past while. I'd written that it really was no use stressing about girls, who I like, whether they like me, yata yata yata. I had decided that instead of stressing about dinky high school relationships I was gonna focus all my attention on becoming a better man for the girl somewhere out there that will one day be my wife.
Instead of worrying about what might be an "I like you, you like me" kind of relationship, I should really be focusing on the "We love each other and will be with each other forever" relationship. Because I'll be honest with you, I'm a hopeless romantic, in more ways than one. And because I know I'm not ready yet, until it's time for me to search for my companion, I'm gonna make myself the best me I can be. And when I have become the best man I could be, she'll know that I did it for her.
