Dream of: 22 August 1990 "Studying German"

My sister had walked with me to a parking lot in Portsmouth where I had left my 1978 Subaru. It was dark and I couldn't see the car, but my sister walked with me to a second parking lot where I saw the car sitting at the end of the lot, where I then remembered having parked it.

***

I was sitting in the Subaru. It was light outside. I slowly realized I was completely naked. I knew the night before I had left a pair of holy blue jeans in a dumpster about 20 meters from the car. I jumped out of the car, and as fast as I could, ran naked to the dumpster. Just as I was almost there I saw a car full of girls approaching. I reached the dumpster and bent over into it to pick up the blue jeans just as the car passed. I was sure the girls were all looking at my naked butt and laughing at me. After they had passed, I ran with the blue jeans back to the car. Once in the car I saw a pair of old, thin, bell-bottomed blue jeans in the car. I had known they were there before, and I didn't know why I hadn't put them on before running to the dumpster.

I was trying to decide what I was going to do with my future. Was I going to stay in Portsmouth or was I going to leave and go somewhere else? I was probably going to return to college and try to get a masters degree in something. I thought I would like to do it in Europe. If I stayed in Portsmouth and studied for four years, I might end up being there the rest of my life. Maybe my mother or my father would become ill and I would have to stay and take care of them. The idea of going to Europe made me very happy, and I was sure that was what I wanted to do. I would especially like to go to Germany.

I realized what the problem was: I simply didn't have any money to go to Europe. I was going to have to stay in Portsmouth. Then what would I study? I had a vision of a man (probably 40 years old) talking about studying German. He had dark hair and a beard. He apparently was a professor. I apparently had seen him on television and I was now remembering what he had said. He was extolling the study of German, and he said many different things were on cassette tapes now, even some areas of the law, such as worker's compensation. I thought studying some law in German might be interesting.

It made a lot of sense to me. I loved German, and even if I couldn't go to Germany now, if I studied it, I would be able to go later. There certainly would be a lot to learn. I was certain I would enjoy it. It looked as if that was what I would do. Someday I might go to Asia Minor and study German, but I realized that Turkish was spoken there and that I didn't know Turkish. Then again, if I could speak German, I could teach it anywhere, even if I didn't know the native language.
