Anxiety Dreams

Have you ever had a dream where you’re being chased? Or maybe you’re naked somewhere where you should be clothed? Or how about you’re about to take a test and you have no idea for what class? Or maybe you have a presentation but you don’t know what for? Or your teeth are falling out? Or maybe you’re lost and you don’t know how to get home? Or how about embarrassing bathroom problems? (Personally: yes, no, no, no no, yes, yes! :p)

The dreams aren’t supposed to mean much except as an indicator of general anxiety, I think; most people have had one version or another of the common ones. Well, this morning, I woke up from a completely new version: my favorite bookstore was having to close down and I was there on the last day, trying to decide what books to buy, but I knew it was too late to save the store. Then later in the day, I read that Stacey’s Bookstore in San Francisco (which I hadn’t even heard of) is closing — I feel like so many bookstores have closed this year. So I dunno if it was general or specific anxiety or what (prescience? :p), but I hope that the Other Change of Hobbit does ok!

(In other news, I re-read this, and I am probably a little crazy. :p)


  1. Ya think??
    Yes, no, no, no, yes (hair), yes, yes.

  2. hahaha
    no, not crazy. just a bit nerdy. :-P

  3. Yes, no, yes, no, yes (I think one where my teeth were fracturing, and another where my jaw was locked), no, no

    Sorry to hear about the bookstores…
