Calm Dreams 

You know those stress dreams? The ones where you find that you were registered for a class all semester but didn't realize it and now it's finals but if you do really well on the test you can still pass even though you didn't attend one class so now you're really stressed trying to cram it all in?

I didn't have that dream last night.

Instead, I did have a college dream, but I dreamed that I was all done and calmly packing up my room. And my room was quite tidy, with everything in its place and no extra clutter. I was just packing up, chatting with a friend of mine (okay, so it was Rodney McKay, super physicist from Stargate: Atlantis - so I'm even a geek in my dreams) about his summer plans. He was working out a better timing mechanism for the dorm heating system to alleviate the mold and mildew problem that apparently had been plaguing us. His current idea was to have the rooms heat upu to 100 early in the evening and then turn off for the rest of the night. I had my doubts about this concept, but he would have the whole summer to work on it.

Anyway, my only concern was that I might have to call my sister to bring her car around so I wouldn't have to make two trips, since I didn't think I'd be able to fit everything into the Mini in one trip.

That was it! No frenzy, no frantic, no panic.

Nice change.
