It must have been 6 one cold grey morning in week 3 that we recieved a really nice wakeup call from the fire drills on Lakeside. Most of us groggy, sleep deprived were reluctant to leave our warm beds, but the persistant sound of the drill was very difficult to ignore. I got out of my room with only my keys, and dressed in nothing more but pajamas, slippers and a vest. I met my other flatmates in the corridor and got out into the lawn. It was cold and wet. One of my flatmates despite having a nice leather jacket on was freezing to death.
I guess this is a great way to start a pajama party with 100 or so sleep deprived grad students on a lawn at 6 AM in the morning, all dressed in pajamas, robes. It was also a great way to aggravate a serious cold as I stood there coughing and sneezing…
I’m just hoping they don’t make us do one again in week 6 when we have to do our timed essays…

I usually don’t remember dreams. I think I must have been really tired these three nights that I’ve been having so many strange dreams that don’t really fall into the category of nightmares.
The first night I had a really stupid dream. I dreamed that I was licking my molars (teeth in the back) to the point that they fell out of my mouth and my gums were bleeding. It was sort of like visiting the dentist to get your teeth pulled out, except you were doing it to yourself instead of getting assistance from the dentist’s iron wrenches. It was quite realistic because I could taste blood in my mouth.
The second night I had a series of strange dreams. I was submerged in water, and I started to drown. The next thing I knew I felt as if someone had thrown me into a wall. I could feel myself being slammed into a wall. I prayed and asked for God’s help and the series of strange dreams just stopped (divine interference?).
These are really stupid dreams, but if Freud did a psychoanalysis on me I wonder what he would have said about the teeth and what dark secrets the dark unconsious has in waiting.
