don't worry, you're fine [Jun. 21st, 2009|01:38 am]
Lindsey Kuper

I'm in a huge, dark concert hall that is somehow also the IU computer science department. You can tell that it's the CS department because Dirk Van Gucht is walking around and people are talking about Doug Hofstadter. I go outside and am in downtown Bloomington, except featuring the St. Louis Gateway Arch. I walk toward a downtown building where exam grades are being posted for many courses. I'm not in any of those courses, but that building still seems like a reasonable place to go. When I arrive, I see that the grades have been printed on huge sheets of paper or painted on big white fabric sheets and hung up in the glass windows of a store. In one course, everyone has evidently gotten the same grade, "600", on an exam. I don't know what that means, but it is apparently a worrisome grade, because under that, the words "DON'T WORRY, YOU'RE FINE" have been painted.

Some of the sheets are up at yet another store that's even further away, but it's easy for me to get there because I have super-powerful vision and can move with enormous, superhuman strides. However, when I get there, I realize that the faraway store is a bad place to be because only sorority girls go there. Furthermore, it is closed, which makes it an even worse place to be. I have to turn around and go back the way I came, which is nervewracking because a lot of people are watching, but then I see that there's a beautiful rainbow in the sky which exactly follows the contours of the arch. I try to get out my phone to take a picture of it, but instead of a phone I only have a half-used disposable camera. I am very hesitant to take a picture on film. Instead, I keep walking toward the rainbow. I get to an outdoor concert venue where some musicians are playing to a very sparse crowd. The singer says, "Okay, now we're going to play --" but I don't hear him finish the sentence. Then I realize simultaneously that the reason for the poor attendance is that this is just a sound check, and that the singer is Trent Reznor, wearing a green bathrobe.

Grad school sounds horrifying.
