Funny Stressed Induced Nightmare

Courtesy of my friends at XKCD A Webcomic of Romance, Sarcasm, Math, and Language, I found this funny little comic that is just too ironic that I had to share. It seems whenever I’m stressed this is exactly what happens! What is this about and why can’t I have dreams that are conducive to my current life! I guess I was just too serious of a student. Any thoughts?
