I wrote a nice long entry – practically an entree – about dreams and anxiety. But just as I tried to upload an appropriate picture to go with my article… Frozen website of deathica. (the stony island in the south sea of the Land of Death – typically where silicon based death originates from. Major exports: Death, tangerines.)
The idea is that I can’t tell if my school anxiety comes from my rather pervasive dreams about bad school experiences or if the dreams come from my anxiety. Has anybody else had this problem?
I dream that I have signed up for a class and then forgot about it completely until there’s no hope of passing. Then I forget about the dream when I wake up, but the memory of the dream is stashed away in my memory sector where it is then translated as previous reality. I then spend days worrying that there’s a class somewhere that I’m utterly failing at. Then, just today, I remember suddenly my dream. My worries fade, and I realize I am doing just fine.
Having just watched “A Beautiful Mind” the other night, I feel that I should emphasize my non-insaneness.
Not insane. Me. Very much not.
And now I will attach the angry pipe-smoker of yore.
