    I Remember Doing It a Few Times Back When I Was a Student

    Isaac Asimov was once a biochem prof, and in his autobiography, he mentioned that he once dreamed he was lecturing, and when he awoke, he was! I don't think I've been that bad yet, but I do tell my students that if they sleep, I might let them, but if they snore, I'll throw...

    Sometimes?

    Nay, it's far more than sometimes. At least several times a week, but often at least once a day, sometimes several times a day. During AP physics, during AP English, during math, during study hall... it humours the hell out of my classmates. Particularly when I open my eyes to...

    Eyes Wide Open

    This one time in my Chemistry class, I was so sleepy, I actually sort of slept and dreamed with my eyes open but I was also vaguely aware of being in my class. At the end of the class, when I looked down at my notes, it was a mixture of my Chemistry notes and parts of dreams that...

    Yeah Well, I Was Bored.

    Circuit theory, engineering physics, all my computer programming classes - all with at least one time per class. Circuit theory was just boring and difficult, but I should say dozed off rather than fell asleep.  I learned everything I knew by reading on my own and going to...

    Sometimes I'll just lay in my bed and listen to the waves of heavy rain pass over the roof, waiting for the deep bass of thunder. It's so nice to fall asleep too.
