Feeling that I was not already stressed-out enough, my subconscious last night provided me with an extremely vivid dream in which my job search was complicated by a natural disaster that made fossil fuel prices rise disastrously. The dream had very specific and plausible ideas about what effects this would have. This morning I kept finding myself on Google trying to research what the chemical makeup of the Aichi area’s soil was like, and what vegetables would grow best in it. You know, so I know what to plant if the grocery stores run out of food.
I finally turned off the computer and played Pokemon for a few hours, which had the desired zombifying effect.
