oh yeah, and i dreamed i was back in school (college, but populated mostly with my middle school teachers), and that once again i was unintentionally skipping english class. i was doing really well in math. i went in to the office (physically located in the middle school office at norfolk academy as it was when i went there) to see if it was too late to drop english class, and who was there but my english prof (dr. noffsinger, as i remember him from 1993) who made a weird face at me and ran off. i went to the advisor (some faculty member... whose name escapes me now... he was the middle school director or asst. director at the time of my attendance) to ask to drop, and he was all "YOUR ENGLISH TEACHER SO DISAPPOINTED BLAH BLAH" and i felt awful but i then explained that i always used to have these dreams about completely forgetting to go to a class, and now the dream has become REAL, and please couldn't he let me work it out somehow, as english was my favorite subject.

dear self: you have never forgotten to go to a class for an entire semester. that's ludicrous. STOP DREAMING ABOUT IT, EVEN IN YOUR DREAMS!

i have recurring dreams in which i have forgotten to go to class for an entire semester -- though it's usually math or spanish.

I only just started having them within the last year or so. So odd.

I still have dreams about sleeping through my organic chem lab final. (which actually almost happened.)

I've had those dreams too, though they were exclusively college dreams full of college friends and teachers. Sometimes I'd realize I had forgotten to go to a class two weeks in a row right after registration, and sometimes it hit me that I'd never even gone and now I'd missed at least one test.

I get horrible dreams where I can't remember my locker combination, nor what class I'm supposed to be in, nor where said class is, or even if it's an A or B day. (plus any other numerous amount of things that make me feel just horrible)


I HATE the school dreams.

I have those dreams too, even though of course that never happened. When I didn't go to a class for an entire semester I *meant* not to!

Which explains a lot of my college experience right there.

Yep. I've had those as well. The funny thing is that I think even my subconcious has numbed to them a bit, because I remember that at first they were a special combination of scary and sad at the same time. Over time I started getting to a point where even in the dream I'd just say, "Oh well, I guess I blew that one, I'll pick it up next semester"

I have not had such a dream in a very long time though.

A standard anxiety dream.
I don't get them often anymore but was still getting them a decade after leaving school.

I haven't had that dream about missing a semester for a while now, but yeah, I do have them every so often. :)

Would that be Laws or Hudgins?
Two nights ago I dreamt I got into a huge screaming match with my father-in-law over a disagreement while moving into my college dorm. Odd, because I married after college and I don't HAVE screaming fights. Many of my dreams DO take place in schools, although they tend to be dark, flooded, burned-out derelicts. Sometimes dark, flooded, burned-out derelict malls. Seriously. They often contain cute things.

Hudgins! Thank you! He always had a way of making me feel incredibly bad, but I do recall it sometimes worked to motivate me. Laws was the good cop in that pair.

I have that dream when I get behind on work or whatever. Except it's always in the big, musty lecture hall from the billnmary bio building. Usually the prof and fellow students are all the people I ever felt badly about disappointing. And you know, I never think to go to the office or anything - I always keep taking the exam or class or whatever it is.

I have school dreams too and I thought it was weird until I read this entry. I'm normal, yea! *g*

I still dream that I'm going to miss the bus! And I do remember having a dream that I was taking way too long on a math test and I was going to run out without finishing (I always finish tests early, and back in high school anyway math was my best subject.)

Our subconscious's need to get up to speed with the present!
