the school dream
No, I do not speak of my "dream" of graduating from college someday. This is a literal, recurring dream that I have every quarter before school starts again. It may vary slightly, but the concept is always the same. In the dream, I am at the end of the quarter. I am doing well in all of my classes, but suddenly realize there is one class I have not attended all quarter, have done no work for, and know nothing about. I attend class on the second-to-last day, stress out about the final, and wonder if there is any way I can make up the work I missed and not ruin my GPA. I always wake up stressed out, but then enjoy a huge sigh of relief as I realize it was just "the school dream." This quarter's dream occurred a few nights ago while we were in Utah. You would think my sub-conscious would finally get the fact that it's just a dream, that I would never really do anything like that in real life. Luckily, only one more dream to go until I graduate in June. Halle-freakin-luiah! (to quote my favorite mission companion).
