Nightmare

This morning I woke up from a dream in which I needed to drop my Calculus class, but it was the day after the deadline. I was going to fail the class, since I had never actually gone and had missed all the tests.  This is a reoccurring dream that I have.  It has been 23 years since I took calculus and I got an A.  Why am I having this dream?  Will it never end?

    Wow, Aaron, I have a really similar nightmare. It’s usually some very difficult philosophy or AP political theory, that I’ve been blowing off and then start showing up a week before the final. I open the book and the teacher starts talking and it’s all completely beyond me. Why have I let this go so long? I could have dropped this class! … I’ve watched other students screw up this bad over the years, and was always glad that I wasn’t in their position. But now it’s me. So, I know the sinking feeling very well. Welcome to my nightmare!

    It’s just like building a CubeSat!
