Hump Day

Woke up this morning and was actually well-rested. Go figure. Must have had something to do with the fact that I didn't have to get up and pee in the middle of the night. I HATE that. Also, possibly because I didn't have an anxiety dream last night. Now, this is not a pity-me post or a cry-for-attention post - I just want to point out that I have the most UNORIGINAL anxiety dreams. In the last two weeks, I've dreamt that:

1.) I'm back in school, I don't know where my classes are, and when I get to them, I discover I haven't done any of my homework for an entire week. And my notebook is all filled up, so I don't have any clean paper to take notes with.

2.) While shopping at a department store, I lose my purse full of money, credit cards, and all my jewelry.

3.) I'm in a school musical, but I don't know the words and don't have the right costumes, but get stuck going up on stage anyway, so I have to try to pretend to sing along by mouthing to lyrics I don't know.

4.) My teeth are loose and about to fall out and I can't find my dentist's name and number in the yellow pages.

So, I am expecting, in the next few nights, to show up to work naked, and get chased by a monster and not be able to run away from it.

Haha! My anxiety dreams aren't that different: I realize at the end of a semester at college that I forgot to cancel a class and the final is going on at that moment. I have to run and take an essay test on a subject I know nothing about.

The other one is that I have to change clothes for some reason, like in a car or somewhere people can see me. I usually end up partially naked, desperately trying to cover myself.

What is it that's so traumatic about academia that we're still having nightmares many years later?

Oh yeah, everything.

An interesting subcategory - the marching band anxiety dream. Basically just a variation on the school play / musical dream. I get it about once a month.
