Stress dreams... which I resolve the source of my stress and end up happy.

My typical stress dream involves preparing for international travel and discovering that I can't find or have left behind my passport.

Last week, my stress dream was about going through security at an airport. I had taken my rather large laptop out of my big laptop backpack to go through security. The security person told me that I could only take one bag with me on the plane, and that I'd have to leave my B&N tote bag filled with novels and poli sci books behind. Luckily, my laptop backback is huge, so I told the woman that I'd just put the books in my backpack.

So the last part of the dream was me reassembling my stuff on the other side of the security line and carefully organizing all my paperbacks so they would fit in my laptop backpack.

My interpretation? This was a dream about tenure worries and my ability to get everything to fit... poli sci books, novels (outside work life?), and laptop all together.

Your dream looks a lot like my reality these days. I may start taking my shoes off at metal detectors as a conditioned response any day now.
