A matter-of-fact dream

Luckily, I slept again last night, after sleeping a bit yesterday evening. Took a while to get to sleep, though. Then I had a dream, and it was matter-of-fact, so matter-of-fact in fact that I dreamt I got out of bed in the very early morning, plugged in my tablet to recharge it, then went back to bed. This did not happen, but it felt like it had.

I'm thinking about the other details of the dream — me traveling, and getting separated from the people I'm traveling with and they don't know I'm separated from them so I don't have their help in getting to wherever I'm supposed to get to — and I'm realizing this is a recurring thing in some of my dreams. You don't need to know the details, and I don't need to tell them, but a lot of my dreams boil down to "I need to figure out how to do [x], I expect other people to help me do [x], they don't, I feel lost and try to catch up." And I try to do the right things in general while this happens, because I can't simply be wrapped up in myself and what I'm doing.

My dreams are at least interesting to me.
