The other night I was talking with some friends about dreams. Not dreams of the future, but the kind you have at night while you sleep. We started talking about recurring dreams, and there was one that I thought of immediately. I’ve not had this one in a while (that I remember), but it’s fairly common for me to have it.
Here’s the dream:
I’m usually at either High School or Middle School. It’s been at college before, but rarely. But at school ready to go to class. But for some reason (I don’t know why) I’ve not been in a while, a few weeks or something, and I’ve forgotten stuff. I’m not sure where my locker is. When I find it, I’ve no clue how to get into it because I’ve forgotten the combination. I can remember scattered details of my schedule like a few classes I’m taking, but not sure what class is what period. When I do make it to class, I stand in the doorway not sure where to sit. Do I sit in my old seat (where is it?) or is it now someone else’s? How has the social structure of the class changed w/o me here? Do we have homework today? Will I get to make up the work or will I get zeros for the time missed? If so, am I going to flunk? What will my teacher’s attitude be now? Was I missed?
Anybody ever had a dream like that? What sort of recurring dreams have you had?
