Not-so-sweet dreams

November 19, 2014 - 12:16pm
In the past week or so, I've shown up at my boss's fancy party in pajamas, been pushed down the stairs by a co-worker, had another co-worker put a huge snowball in the passenger seat of my car, had the words I was typing keep disappearing from my computer and captured a serial killer using a dull knife and my flip phone from 2005. Well, those things didn't actually happen-only in the bizarre dreams I've been having. I don't always remember my dreams, but I've certainly been on a run lately. What's that? Um, I guess you could say I've been a little stressed at work lately-what makes you ask? Yeah, yeah, I see it. It doesn't take a genius to analyze those dreams. Being unprepared, having obstacles put in my way, disappearing work, slaying a monster-I should probably take some vacation time soon. At least I haven't had my most common recurring dream lately. You know the one, where you have a final exam and realize you forgot to go to class all semester? For me, it's always math. Always. Sometimes college and sometimes high school but it's always some difficult math course.
