This trimester, I am taking the class WWW.LA (or as I call it, LA.com). It's been pretty easy so far. The point of the class is to write a research paper, about 5 pages long. All we've done so far is research our topic, which although it isn't hard has proven to be very interesting. My topic is dreams and sleep. Something just occurred to me, and here it is: I don't know if anyone else has had this happen to them, but sometimes I'll be having a dream, and I'll be holding something, let's say, I don't know, a glass of water, and then I wake up and I'm in my bed but I still feel the glass of water in my hand. I was awake, but I still felt like I was holding the thing from my dream until I moved my hand. This has happened to me more than once. I wonder why this is. You know how people say "pinch me so I know I'm not dreaming"? If you pinch yourself while you're dreaming, will you wake up? I wonder where the physical boundaries are drawn between dreaming and waking up. When you're sleeping, your nerves supposedly don't report things to your brain, but if that's true, why did I feel like I was holding a glass of water from my dream when I was awake? This is something I'll have to do more research on and I'll tell you if I find out, and comment if you know/had that happen to you too!
Welcome to Maura's Blog!
Hi, it's Maura! I have a dog, I run cross country, and you no longer have to read this blog because that pretty much sums up everything on here.
Check out my front page to see the books I want to read, if you want too, I can't force you to but you can if you want, well I don't know now I confused myself now so never mind.
As you can see, Dusty helps with the pictures. :D Thanks for being so cute, Dusty! Also, don't get confused. Dusty had darker fur when she was little, but she was tan underneath! Nope, I don't have two dogs.
The pictures on the top of this page and on my homepage are pictures I took at the Botanic Gardens, and I thought they went well with this theme, so.... yep!
