i was enrolled in a special boarding school
i was dreaming that for some reason i was the new student at a special boarding school. i got the impression that at least some of the students were behavior problem types, like people who might otherwise have gone to prison. i was on friendly terms with about five kids there, and at one point back in my room i looked out the glass at them and figured maybe i should not be alone too much so they wouldn't start thinking i was strange. i was trying to figure out what the house rules were. but i noticed my name was scheduled on a marker board that i and four other students should go to a certain office at --- right now, five minutes ago. so i grabbed my stuff and rushed to this office, and spoke to a nice lady who didn't tell me anything. i was eating crackers then, wondering if crackers were okay in this place or were they contraband. at some point an adult came into my room, a man with an accent who told me his name was djschemko, or something like that. first he tried to tell me ten times, then i asked how it was spelled, then instead of just telling me how it was spelled he wanted to tell me his own way, like why is it spelled that way, make it part of a long (hg-like) attention-getting story. but once i knew his name we got along fine. i asked him what he was doing here, and he said "i live here!" turns out the bed i was sitting on was already his bed. when i came back from a walk around the halls, another bed had been put in the room for me. now i was starting to wonder, why am i in this place? it's not like my mother couldn't take care of me, i thought. after all i'm a grown man with a good income.
telephone rang to wake me. which means i might have totally forgotten this dream otherwise. but i was feeling almost feverish when i woke up, so maybe not.
