Dreaming about time on the clock

New, 36 comments

Ever since I was a little kid, when I would come home from Disneyland or some other amusement park, I'd spend the drive home half-asleep and I'd slip in and out of dreams that I was still on the rides. I'd have that same sense of motion of being on a roller coaster, or the same sense of anticipation of stepping into a ride.

Similarly, after I graduated from high school, college and finished classes for grad school, over the next couple of days, in the morning and at night, in my half-asleep mind, I'd dream about walking in and out of classes. Or I'd dream that there was a big test coming up or a project I was working on. Not really nightmares about school. More just like my brain adjusting to the experience being over. I'd mostly just dream that there was still something left.

Last night, I dreamed that we had time on the clock.
