This is kind of weird, but almost every night I keep dreaming about random things, but mostly about my students.
You know, you hear their badgering voices all day long and then they just follow you home. But its sooooo bad at night.
And also, about every hour I'm waking up/conscious but still sleeping.
My bed is also not exactly perfect for sleeping either. I've got my camping sleep pad under my sheet to save me from the wooden-plank-of-this-Chinese-bed. My pillows also suck.
But I can't do anything right now about the bedding situation.
Any suggestions on how to sleep through the night (minus change the bedding)?
Anyone have this phenomenon of dreaming of your students?
"I wanted to be puzzled and charmed, to experience the endless, beguiling variety of a continent where you can board a train and an hour later be somewhere where the inhabitants speak a different language, eat different foods, work different hours, live lives that are at once so different and yet so oddly similar. I wanted to be a tourist," Bill Bryson.

how much satisfaction,
how much comfort,
how much soul and transcendence there might be
