October 20-21, 2016

I went on a date. I don't remember the specifics of the date, I just know that I went on one. Then, in the early evening after the date, my dad told me to dress nicely aka formally. I can't remember what exactly what I was wearing but I know for sure that my top was lacy, long-sleeved, and off-white. After I finished getting ready, he drove me somewhere (my sister may or may not have been in the car with us) and he wouldn't tell me where we were going. He was very happy to be going wherever it was though. We finally pulled up to a building that looked like a warehouse, but it was in the middle of a city. There were people milling in and around the place, seemingly all there for a reason unknown to me, and they were all lining up for something. As I got out of the car and made my way into the structure, a woman who was standing in the line and closest to the car yelled out, in Korean, "Oh, it's Paula!" I was confused because I had never seen her before in my life, but I just smiled politely and bowed my head as a greeting. I found my mom in basically the middle of the room, and she was smiling and saying hi to people, accepting presents, as though she was the host of the entire event. I stood beside her because that's what a daughter does, and eventually everyone just started addressing me and giving me gifts. I'm standing there, even more bewildered, when I find out (from my mom or someone in the line congratulating me) that I'm engaged. Even in the dream, I wonder to who because I don't know apparently. Possibly the guy I went on the date with earlier that day? In the dream, I don't think I'm that surprised because I keep saying hello to everyone in the line and receiving their presents. K, so this gift giving thing was like an exchange instead of an outright giving. There were objects lined up on a table beside my mom, and when someone had something to present, they would choose something from off the table to take with them. It was an interesting concept and I rather enjoyed it (maybe something I'd do for my actual wedding, who knows).

There was more to the dream: I had actually woken up from this part of the dream and then went back to sleep, only for it to continue somehow, but since I can't remember, this will have to do.
