Hello new term

September 9th, 2010 (11:37 am)

current mood: okay

Lastly night was my second night in a row of strangely disturbing dream activity. I notice I seem to get a surge of this sort of thing now and again. The night before last I dreamed I was looking at myself in a mirror and could see a network of very dark raised veins all across my chest. Since I find anything to do with imagery around the circulatory system very unsettling, unsurprisingly I woke up totally creeped out.

This morning I woke with intense pain in my head, neck and shoulders (the pain disappeared quite quickly once I was properly awake. I'd been dreaming about having to suddenly deliver a course about wild birds and plants. I was on some mad, hard to navigate campus, and had no idea where my class was. Some friends (who seemed more cheerful and confident) led me about, and finally halfway up a flight of stairs on a landing was a heavy curtain. One of the people I was with put her hand behind the curtain and found a door to a grassy area outside, and the class was assembling there. As I followed, I was frantically scanning a module guide to find out what the assessment criteria and activities for the course were. Everyone else was in a good mood and looking forward to the course. I was keeping up a professional veneer, but inwardly panicking.

Ah yes, the joys of stressing about a new term. It's started hitting me today too, as most of our resources have changed their interfaces and our library page will be changing in two weeks... so all that last minute updating. Joy as usual.

Hope your panic subsides!

Strangely I haven't had a new term panic whilst awake yet -- I seem to be saving it for when I'm asleep.

Where is your dream post, KG? I just checked and I can't seem to see it.

Ah, OK, then I won't feel bad for not noticing it.

I've not been having bad dreams, but I'm convinced I've forgotten something. How could I not with all the things I'm trying to sort out all at the same time?

It was proved true on Monday, I forgot my dad's birthday and got into a lot of trouble over it, so of course now I'm convinced I'm going to overlook something else - since I already have.

Ah, maybe it's just a funny time of year.

My lovely sister - I hated seeing the real nasty purple veins across your chest. They made you seem so alien and unlike you. A few days after you had this dream I had a very disturbing dream about you - disturbing enough to contact you on Skype and ask if you were okay. I don't remember the dream in detail - I think it had something to do with medical procedures. But I remember being very worried about you. I wish you had gone to the doctor as soon as you noticed the lump. Why did you leave it so long?
