Awwww Yeah


I've been thinking about dreams a bit lately. There are a few themes that occur in my dreams periodically. 
- huuuuuge ocean wave - just one
- teeth falling out (UGH this is the worst)
- being in a very high place for no reason (usually some kind of playground equipment/metal structure)
- horses (not as often though, and usually quite different from one to the next... the ones listed above feel similar from dream to dream)
- public toilets... but like actually public - no walls, toilets right next to each other, toilets in a public room, etc.

What themes reoccur in your dreams? If not applicable, what is a particularly memorable dream you've had?


Also! I did this "20 Things" thing a long time ago and I'd like to re-do it c: Some things I have changed, and some I haven't!

1. The smell of wet concrete (We hose down the pottery studio every Thursday at uni and it smells AMAZING)
3. The smell of fresh cut grass
4. Seeing a tree/shrub/forb and knowing exactly what it is (I'm becoming a plant nerd!)

WHOA! I absolutely adore your new username! It's so pretty and I think it suits you really well~ :hug:

eeee thank you!! It just popped into my head last night, I checked and saw that it was available, so I bought a 3 month subscription so I could change it! And have a subscription for a little bit, hehe. I haven't had one for so long!

My pleasure! That's always the best, isn't it? I remember stuggling so hard to come up with a username (although anything is better than "Autumpool" :giggle:), so I know there's no better feeling than coming up with the perfect username. Funnily I saw that you'd posted something before I saw the notification and I thought to myself "is that Lauren??".
You'd better use the premium to your advantage - hoping to see lots and lots of polls from you! ;D

ALSO GOODNESS ME YOU'RE MY FIRST BUYER ON ETSY! :'D Thank you so much, yo; I just put your buttons in the mail, so tell me if they don't get to you in the next couple days.

Dude no worries!! I still won't be able to send your trade pic for three weeks or so!! I'm only halfway done with my summer classes in the mountains-- I just came home for the weekend, so I had internet briefly!
And you are so welcome!! I LOVE your buttons!! So I leaped on the opportunity when I saw you put them on etsy heheh. I'm going back up to the mountains today so I actually won't be able to tell you when they arrive... but I'm sure there won't be any problem! Thanks for sending them to me! :hug:

Hey! You were a HM in my contest and won 100 points. :) I know it's not much but please let me know if you'd like me to send them the normal way. Or if you wanted to make a widget to get the $1, please do so and let me know and I'll pay that way. :heart:
leafylaurel Featured By Owner May 9, 2015  Student General Artist
Aww thank you so much! :D you can send them the normal way. Is there a reason to prefer using a widget though? I don't know much about point transfers haha
