Dreaming Failure

Reading evidence, trying to catch up on the rule against hearsay, which seems straightforward until you get to all the exceptions. Maybe it's more difficult because I'm so behind and I've missed so many classes. You think? Nah... I had a dream last night that I was enrolled in a class that I have only attended once. In my dream, I just suddenly remembered one day that I was supposed to be in class, then I realized I'd been missing the class for weeks, then I thought about the ways to get out of the class and realized there were none, and then I panicked and thought I was going to fail out of law school. And then I woke up. It was an awful dream—a nightmare, even. Apparently my subconscious is preparing for finals. A quick count says there are five and a half weeks of class left before final exams, but maybe it's closer to six weeks since there's a half-week in there for the fall break (Thanksgiving). Needless to say I'll have a lot of catching up to do over that little “holiday.” NaNoWriMo fits into this where? How? Is this what's known as a reality check?

Wow, I've been having that exact same nightmare since high school and even after graduating college it still pops up every now and then. I wonder if starting law school will trigger a new type of bad dreams, or if all the old ones will just come back in full force?

Speaking of which, I'm glad that I'm doing NaNoWriMo this fall. A bathtub-full of the best luck to you!

I have that dream too, even after being out of school for several years. Somehow I just keep forgetting to go to class. Before I know it I'm taking the final exam, and when I look at the clock I have two minutes left.
