Explosions in the mind

“The geologist takes up the history of the earth at the point where the archaeologist leaves it, and carries it further back into remote antiquity.” Bal Gangadhar Tilak, The Arctic Home in the Vedas

I had a wicked dream last night. Wicked here means good.

I have two degrees (yes, two BAs, don’t ask). My first degree is in Anthropology and Classical studies (Double majored, was one 1 year credit from a minor in Russian studies {still burns me}). My second is in Archaeology. I presently work with Geologists.

Deep breath.

They are living proof that I could do what I dreamt of.

Last night I dreamt that I went and got my masters and ROCKED IT. Not only did I rock it, but then I managed to find work in my field here at home – which is quite literally impossible at this time (small, poor province).

I woke up feel excited, possibly even exhilarated. It’s crazy. I know that financially I can’t make it happen. But it was an amazing dream. I was respected in the field (and by field, I literally in the field – digging, I don’t care so much for accolades). People talked to me about it. It was just amazing.

My mind exploded for a while.

Then I woke up.

At least I’m feeling better.
