In the dream, I was at a school, but as usual in school dreams, I didn't really know where I was supposed to be, or what I was supposed to be doing. Only in this one, instead of the usual losing and being bullied and afraid... In this one, I was doing well anyhow. My grades were fine, my social interactions were respectable, and when I got bullied, I shut that shit down. With kung fu.
I guess I can't remember much of the narrative... I remember being in a science class, and having a lab partner. I remember being out front, after school, teaching some really nerdy sad kid how to punch. I remember being attacked and defending myself, and not even being scared or concerned, but remaining calm, confident, and in control. I remember some guy turned into two crazy alien monsters. and the guy part fell to the ground, and both alien monsters came to fight me. I still stayed calm and dealt with it. It was a very confident dream, in spite of how crazy it sounds.
Kind of nervously approaching the weekend. Like I said, that's when things usually spike bad. I am going to try to be at least a little patient. I know that when feeling cornered, I can sometimes be a little to pro-active in "defending myself" ("He's going to retaliate first."), and
I don't want to do that. I want to be sure that things are off the rails before I disassemble the whole thing. It sucks to be in a position where you feel that eventuality is such a solid given, that it's not even "if" anymore, it's just "when".
