The last two days have really given meaning for me to the phrase "When it rains, it pours." They have just been awful. It's never good when problems with work and personal problems compound. At this point, I just feel exhausted. The last few days I have been so distracted trying to resolve my work problems that I haven't been eating, which never helps my mood. Perhaps that has contributed to my personal problems! At 4pm today I realized I hadn't yet eaten a meal. Not a good sign. Even then nothing sounded appealing, so I just grabbed a smoothie and went back to work. I finally resolved part of my work problem today though, and all of the personal problems, so I am more optimistic about tomorrow.
I had nightmare after nightmare last night, so I didn't sleep much. One of them was pretty funny in restrospect (although scary at the time). In the dream, there was a Stanford Army and they were invading MIT. Although no one at MIT understood why we were being invaded, the MIT Army was called on to defend the campus. I was apparently in the MIT Army Reserve and so I was pulled in to the warfare. Strangely, Haynes was the head of the MIT Army, which doesn't really seem like the sort of job he would enjoy... He lead a very defensive mission ('Don't fire unless fired upon," etc...). A lot of the battles took place in the MIT gym building, and I ended up getting shot by a Stanford undergraduate. I was wounded , but ok. I also had a grenade thrown at me, but that didn't appear to do any damage. Just when I was taken to the hospital for my gunshot wound, the Stanford Army seemed to be retreating. Then I woke up. It was very odd.
