Harvard school of assassins

This dream was odd because I wasn't in it.

A young woman who looked like Emma Watson was accepted to the Harvard school for Assassins with a full scholarship. All assassins have to pick a educational discipline as a cover story for why they are at Harvard. She chose English Literature and Creative Writing. She ended up writing a couple novels and collaborated with the education and training schools to help rewrite NASAs training manuals. She was doing well in her classes but there was trouble with her dad. Her dad, who had worked 25 years in factory before being replaced by a robot, did not approve of writing as a career. He had no idea she was learning to be an assassin as well and she wasn't allowed to tell him. One Christmas her father and mother came to visit and check in on her and she and her father were having and argument about it. She was getting frustrated because she knew that if she told him what she was really doing that he'd be okay with it but she couldn't and her father was feeling upset because he didn't feel this was going to help her in the long run and he was worried for her long term well being. Meanwhile the mom was trying to smooth things over with both of them. During one particularly heated exchange there was a cough from the shadows; one of the woman's class mates and friends who for some reason was Jon Snow from Game of Thrones had been lurking to make sure she was okay. She nonchalantly signaled that he should stay hidden and eventually got her dad to leave by tearing into him and his emotional insecurities. I remember the line "Writing isn't a good job? Hows working for 25 years for people half your age only to get replace my a mindless robot who is better at your job than you were"

The dream got weird after that. One of her professors saw this and thought she was too emotional so assigned her a class with some weird monk assassin who tried to train her to calm her emotions and teach her to make tea. He was a goofy weirdo but apparently was very good at killing people and teaching.
