The dream took place at a lake. I was surrounded by a bunch of kids I go to school with. It was like an English class of sorts. Our teacher ended up being the associate pastor of my church. He told us to find a partner because we were going to write a love letter to said partner. I just found a group of friends and at some point the teacher/pastor said we could go get something to drink. So me my group get up and walk a ways to a rest area. At some point me and two other friends are trying to flip over a raft of a thing. We're in the river trying to flip this thing over when it hits me and knocks me under it. The water was pretty deep at this point so my friend Courtney had to help me get out from under the raft (I can actually swim in real life).
