Anxiety attacks. Film at 5 am.

[ #17428 ]
It's been years since I remember having one of those "The final exam is today, but I never went to class or read the textbook!" nightmares (or that evil variant, the "I made it to the exam, but forgot to put on pants!" dream).

Last night brought a new variant: I needed two particular classes to graduate, but they were on opposite ends of a large campus, with not enough time to make it from one classroom to the other, and a professor who was very uncompromising about getting to class on time. No matter how fast I ran, or biked, or had a friend drive me (getting lost along the way, of course), I couldn't get to the second class on time. The prof was getting more and more annoyed, and was on the verge of failing me when I woke up.

I think my subsconcious is trying to tell me something, and it probably has to do with being overscheduled. Bah.

  • ... and I still get that type of nightmare. Either that one or the one where I've missed the drop deadline and now I'm stuck with a course that I've missed half of and have no way of making up the lost time.

    But then again I still get the nightmare from grade school when I show up to class in my pajamas! Imagine my horror when my wife (grade school teacher) tells me they now have "pajama" days in schools!

  • I'm just about 7 years out of college, and I have the "exam I've not prepared for" dream 4-5 times a month still. ;)
