Stress Dreams

In times of stress I typically have two forms of what I refer to as "stress dreams." Chase dreams involve someone trying to catch me and hurt/kill me. I am running, driving, crawling, trying desperately to stay one step ahead. The other type is usually work-related and takes place in a particularly stressful environment. I used to have these dreams when I work retail during the holidays. It would just be person after person after person demanding my attention. I had dreams that felt similar at the office only it was piles o' crap that needed my attention. Never-ending piles. Well, last night I had my first of the second variety with regards to my current student teaching situation. The entire dream consisted of:

"Miss!"
"Miss!"
"Miss!"
"Miss!"
"Miss!"
"Miss!"
"Miss!"
"Miss!"

For some reason, I've been having stress dreams about the MOST--and SK. Weird--two the night before last.

Hope you don't get too stressed out with the new student teaching.

I have those stress dreams, too - lots of them about working in retail!! It can be hell.

Sorry about your teaching dream!
