After the incident, I ran a virus scan and found I had a Trojan Horse virus. To be fair, I might have had it prior to the porn page, but it is unlikely since my computer automatically gets scanned periodically everyday.
This whole incident made me recall an anxiety dream I had while I was at my last job. I had dreamt that I clicked on a seemingly harmless link and all these porn windows kept on popping open filling my screen. Then a coworker came by and saw my screen and felt the need to take a picture of it and put it in my personal file prior to termination.
I think these types of dreams will start to replace the old ones I would have while in school about missing an exam or class that would be detrimental to my entire academic career. The ‘best’ are the ones where you find out you are enrolled in a class (unbeknownst to you) that you have not attended for the entire semester and you try to take the final exam only to realize you showed up in your underwear.
What I learned from school in the end is:
Sleep deprivation + stress/anxiety = school sucks.
