Old dreams neve die.

I was feverishly trying to remember whether the paper that was due was on Kay's Sarantine novels, or maybe 'A Song for Arbonne'.

Then I woke up.

It's been thirty-five freaking years since I had to do term papers, and the anxiety dreams still come back.  I think my son's end-of-semester stress is leaking over.

It may be the clearest sign that something is wrong with how we've been schooled. I bet homeschooled kids get far fewer such nightmares.

Despite being one myself, I know the variance between them is very wide, so I can only say that it is mostly likely true.

However, that still doesn't help when you go to college or university... =>.<=

But did homeschooling putting two adverbs back to back like that? Phew!

No, my lack of sleep did that... =>.<=

Ok, that's much more acceptable. :)

Final-exam season is something I could really do without.
All that stress is not healthy for anybody, especially when your grade is trailing for a particular course you need to graduate.
(in my case, two courses. Let's hope I do well)

I keep having dreams where I'm lost in my old high school. I don't know how I can get lost... the building just loops around the library with one extra hallway running down the west side of the building.

But it makes me late for class B, because I am skipping class A to find it. And therefore failing classes A, B, C and D. (I have no idea how that works out...)

WHY COULDN'T I HAVE WRITTEN A PAPER ABOUT A SONG FOR ARBONNE?!

Screw you the Great Gatsby, Thousand Pieces of Gold, and the Giver.
