I've had this recurring dream for years ... and if anybody out there can give me an idea of what it might mean, I love to hear your ideas.
The details of this dream change but the core of it is always the same. I'm in a school and I've lost my class schedule. I don't know which class I'm supposed to go to or how to get there. People are walking past me ... knowing exactly where they're going ... but I'm lost. In the dream, I always think to myself, "If I could just make it to the office, they could print me out a new schedule ..." but usually it never happens.
Well, last night I had it again. This time I'm out at the college where I'm currently taking a class. In the dream, I'm going to school full time and I hear a bell ring ... kids are pouring into the halls and switching rooms ... and I feel the panic in my chest. I don't know what class is next. Where am I supposed to go?
Surprisingly, last night I actually did make it to an office ... where they printed me a new schedule ... but then I walked back out into the hall and realized I didn't know where the rooms were ... so even though they'd given me a list of what classes I was supposed to attend, I didn't know how to get there.
It was awful ... not in a nightmarish "satan is chasing me" kind of way ... but in a desperate, panic-filled way. I know I'm going to get in trouble if I don't get to class ... but I don't know where to go ... so I'm wandering down these halls.
So, I have this dream about once every three or four months ... not that often ... but often enough that I wonder just what it's trying to tell me. Anybody got any ideas? Leave a comment if you can offer me a clue ... cause, boy, I'm beat. Running up and down those halls can really wear a person out.
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away
