If dreams are a representation of the subconscious, then apparently I’m worried about missing my connecting flight when I go to China. While I won’t get into the dream details, I thought it interesting to point out that for the past two days, my dreams have had to do with my upcoming new adventures. I don’t think I’m worried about it– at least not consciously.
I’ve realized that while I have a pseudonym for the school I’m teaching at, SchoolU, I’m missing one for the city in which I’ll be living. A part of me wonders if I should even bother trying to keep it anonymous. Especially if at some point I start posting pictures here (which will inevitably happen). I guess it makes sense as I don’t really need any students or faculty reading this here collection of my words. It probably wouldn’t take much to find this space via search engine. I just tried using the mainland’s primary search engine and could find this site if I used the title, but realistically speaking, how many people will know? Further, I searched my authorial pseudonym, and it was not on the first page. Despite this discovery, I think I’ll still refrain from using the city’s name. Call me paranoid.
If anyone has any suggestions for a name, I’d love to hear it.
Although it’s not going to start it quite yet, after being inspired by Ed Pratt’s unicycling adventure across China, I think I’m going to add a vlogging component to my experiences. The first time around, I made a couple videos of comedic value, but little substance. I’m older now, and.. older, but having a video perspective of my adventures that are less filtered than they would be if I had written them, could prove interesting. But we’ll see. I still have time.
