A good reason to dislike Xmas.

Reoccurring Dream.

Have you ever dreamed the same dream over and over?  I think some have but I had this dream where I show up for the last college class and it is finals day.  Absolutely unprepared for this.  Having missed almost all the remaining semester’s classes and not ready for the final test.  What a horrible image and realization.  How do I get past this worrisome dream?

It took me a while to figure this out but it goes back to my freshman year at East Los Angeles College.  Our student college employment counselor told me I could apply for a warehouse job at the nearby Sears west coast catalogue center working through most of December.  So, I made application and they told me when to start.  Then a college friend told me about an over night job at a large post office distribution and sorting center, also nearby.  So, I made application and they told me when to show up for that one.  Both jobs started about the same day in Early December.  The Sears job started at about 3 in the afternoon and the post office started around 10 in the late evening. 

After a day or two of working both jobs, totaling about ten to fifteen hours each work day I was not alert enough to attend my early morning 8 am business class and missed two weeks’ worth.  But I did manage to make it to the final day in early January. 

The bottom line I manage to make a passing grade but the other bottom line I made lots of Christmas spending money.  Made my parents and siblings very happy.  Oh, to be eighteen-years old again.  Well, no thanks.  Whew!  Merry Christmas.
