Stranger than I Dreamed It

So, recently, I’ve been having weird dreams that stem from my usage of melatonin (I take it to help regulate my sleep because I’m a little of an insomniac) and the stress that I’ve been having in regards to my midterms. Moreover, the characters and situations that were within the dream that I’m about to relate deals with everything that has been going on within my life of late…and you thought you were crazy. Okay, so, the dream…

In my dream, I was looking for apartments in the want ads. However, the want ads were transcribed in IPA. So, I had to seek out the help of John Donne, the writer, and Yonec, a character from medieval literature. Well, needless to say, they helped look for an apartment, and then, I woke up with much confusion in my mind and my heart. So yeah… I’m pretty sure that it’s quite obvious what’s been on my mind.

1) Looking for apartments– My roommate moved out very suddenly, and I”m debating what is going to happen with the apartment that I’m renting. It’s a little too much apartment for me both in size and monetary value. Moreover, it’s hard to live in a space that you shared with someone and then have to deal with them being gone all of a sudden. So yeah…

2) IPA transcription– I’m in a Linguistics class this semester to fulfill a degree requirement and am more than a little stressed about it because I’m having to use new skills that I’m learning and I’m having to use my studying skills to learn things for test (I haven’t used them in years…). Further, I’m having to work with other students that are not nearly as motivated as me when it comes to doing the group work that we have together…needless to say, it’s not fun…Additionally, this class is causing me to push back my graduation for a semester because I’m needing to take certain classes to help fill my degree requirement…yeah…

3) John Donne– Donne is a creature of his own making… I’m writing a paper about his poem “Sappho to Philaenis” for my course, and I’m trying to piece an argument together from various other literary sources to make a certain claim… and I think that it might be falling flat…so yeah….

4) Yonec– A similar situation to Donne… His story is one that I’m researching for my medieval class….and yeah, similar experiences are being had.

All these pieces of the real world finally entered my dream which tells me that I may be going crazy… either that or my super stress is finally pushing into my sleeping times when I should be dreaming about zombies, vampires, and other monsters….or maybe more cutesy things… Needless to say, I’m hoping that by being finished with midterms that these dreams have regressed back into the black depths of my mind…only time will tell…
