- knowing I do not have enough time to get to the class in the first place, but being beset with obstacles along the way,
- not knowing the location of the location of the class,
- arriving at the classroom only to find the class has been moved somewhere else.
It is always a math class. I am always worried that never being able to find the class will result in a big, fat F on my grade report.
Classic fear of failure dream. Not exactly a nightmare, but unsettling nonetheless.
Well, the other night, I dreamed that I actually got to the math class and met the professor who agreed that he would give me another chance. Then I sat down and all the students were working on very simple math problems.
with apologies to math teachers everywhere
For the record, I did very well in high school math classes. The only math I took in college was statistics, once as undergraduate and once as graduate student. Statistics is just about how to use math to manipulate information and I am glad I learned about it.
