I had a nightmare where I had killed my wife and was on the run. It’s been 3 years and I still haven’t woken up.
I was only dreaming.
They WERE just dreams, right?
Everyone has those nightmares (easily dismissed once they’ve graduated into the workforce) in which they’ve forgotten to study for an exam or to turn in a project.
The hardest thing about going back to grad school was waking up from one of these nightmares with the momentary uncertainty of whether or not it might be true.
