Last two nights I’ve had dreams about high school sports and not being ready for a test. I think that I’m channeling my anxiety about being a bad teacher into this weirdness. I never have these kinds of dreams.
Two nights ago I was somehow on the varsity ice hockey team (I was a terrible hockey player) and when the coach, who is dead, told me to get on the line for conditioning sprints, my skate laces were undone, and worse, were made of costume jewelry chains. And the laces were so long they went up my legs to my thighs. Great work brain!
Last night I was having the ‘unprepared for the exam’ dream for the first time in my life. I’ve never had that dream before despite having taken MA and Ph.D. comps and orals. Deeeeeelightful.
All I can do is work harder on Blackboard and my grading, I guess.
