So last night I dreamed I was back in the lab. I didn't recognise the room, but some of my old lab mates were there. I was radiolabelling a probe for a Southern blot using my old protocol, which I'd had to fish out from behind a bench of unfamiliar equipment. It's been more than 2 years since I finished my postdoc.
This always happens to me when I'm close to a big change. I dream about old jobs / classes for a couple of weeks, start the new job, and have normal dreams for a while. Two to three weeks after starting the new job, I will dream about that for several nights in a row. Then I'll be OK again until the next time I move.
Is this normal?
