I have been having this recurring dream for YEARS now...and it has grown so complex that I have started "Inception"-ing myself. At one point last night, I said, "I had a dream where something like this happened. Weird."
In this dream, I realize the week before final exams that I *forgot* to drop my Accounting class even though I stopped attending months before. Therefore, I have missed all the lessons, all the quizzes, all the homework, and now I am failing. It's too late to drop the class so I have to frantically study, in hopes of getting a high enough score on the final to simply NOT get an F. I usually run around looking for classmates to share notes. Then I plead with my counselor that I thought I dropped the class; I really meant to, at least. Finally, I beg my teacher for some forgiveness - perhaps if he would weight my entire grade on this final, I may be able to get a C.
As a lifelong overachiever - any dreams that involve failure are basically my worst nightmares. These dreams are usually linked to stressful times in my life or just a spillover from anxiety I have int he daytime.
After reflecting today, I realize why my dream advanced beyond an Accounting to a Masters in (not sure, actually) - is because I fear that I am failing YOU. I am finding it increasingly difficult to sit down and just write. I have lots of things to say. Lots of fun stories and silly things I have done... but it is like I woke up today and realized, "Wait. I have a blog? And it's overdue? SHIT. Didn't I have a dream about that?"
SO - I apologize and THANK YOU for sticking with me. Fun stories coming this week are Tales from a weekend with Mademoiselle GingerMess and Madame MarriedMess, my new obsession with Vintage Shopping, a new favorite Lifetime Movie starring Tia & Tamara Mowry, and the continuation of Bad Decision August (involving 2 dates, 1 night).
