My nightmares now consist of standing in front of class and saying "OK class, we'll get started in a minute, just let me get my laptop set up", but then somehow 50 minutes has gone by, and I'm still frantically trying to get the projector turned on, and I can't find the quizzes that I printed out, and all my whiteboard markers are suddenly dry, and the whiteboard erasers don't work, and 5 people just asked me a question about a mistake I made in the assignment.
