|It’s been almost seven years since I graduated college. Every now and again I have dreams (more like nightmares) that I forgot to take a final and failed a class – or I forgot to register for a mandatory course that I needed to graduate. Every time I wake up from these dreams I am overwhelmed with relief but it makes me wonder why I am still having these dreams so many years later. I can only attribute these recurring fears to leftover stress! In college, I had to juggle so many new responsibilities that every day I felt like I was neglecting or forgetting something. Aside from passing courses, you also have to worry about paying for them, paying living expenses and eventually finding a job that makes it all worthwhile. On second thought, maybe it’s my monthly student loan bill that initiates these nightmares!
