please be aware! you need to bring your own towel, washcloth, scrubby, etc. otherwise you’ll end up drip-drying after your shower!
Also, if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs. The room and area is VERY quiet but there is persistent background noise from the fridge and stuff like that. (Fortunately it just sounds like occasionally trickling water and i just imagine that it’s the oars of a boat being gently paddled in a lake, but YMMV.)

In general, I think people in my dreams are always (or at least like 95% of the time) representing various aspects of myself. Rather than actually representing the person they appear to be. Just thought i should tell you about that one since I’d mentioned i pay attention to my dreams. YMMV.
