A few weeks ago I had a dream that I was being let go from my job because I wasn’t a fast enough coder. Also had a dream that my rental house was twice as big and had a secret upstairs level where my landlords and their kids were playing/living occasionally.
I think I was most disappointed that the first one wasn’t true. There’s nothing quite like the panic that unemployment brings. It gives one the opportunity to try new things one would never try from a stable stance. Another chance to take the plunge, run your own business, and most-likely fail at it again. Also gives one the opportunity to experiment with health problems (ie. stress).
