Last night, around 4 am:

*Wakes up, suddenly, heart pounding*

*Had stress dream. For some reason there was a penguin*

*Realizes that if she were Proust, she would get up immediately and start writing about the dream*

*Realizes that if she were Dali, she would start making a painting about the dream to stay in the dream*

*Realizes that if she were Éluard, she would be crying because Dali stole her/his wife*

*Realizes that if Éluard could get over this, not to mention gangrene during the first World War, and get not one but two more fabulous mistress/muses (only one of which was stolen by Picasso), she can go back to sleep and will be fine during exams.*
