    Does anyone else ever have dreams about still being in high school or college? Don't answer this if you ARE in college. I mean for the guys like me, who graduated from college (or HS), ugh, (26 years ago) a long time ago.

    I had one tonight that I was back in high school after completing college, and it was my second month in. I could swear something was wrong with this picture, though I knew many of the other students. Finally, I tearfully drove my jeep (I've never owned a jeep) up to the school in the pouring rain after lunch break, entered the building, then sat down with a school administrator inside and pleaded, "Hey, what the hell am I doing here? I went to college and graduated from college too!"

    The dream was much more intense and detailed than that, maybe I'll write the whole thing later.

    How about you?

    Oh yeah hahaha. I always dream of going to school unprepared. I never have a bag, pencil, notebook etc when I enter the class. Then I leave and cut my next class and go home. ;3

    Well, I definitely daydream about being in college, because I want to go back to school... right now I'm just working, not in my field, and I feel like my brain is turning into mush.

    I just had one last night! icon_eek.gif
    I was in the college cafeteria talking to some people who acted like we knew each other, and then one of them pointed out an ex friend of mine was here; she saw me and quickly hid somewhere. I dont know what the hell that was about.
    I used to dream a lot about high school and college, and sometimes when I was still in grade school!
    Now its just once in awhile.
    Always wanted to talk to an interpreter to find out what it means.

    I've had them about elementary school... and its a bit disconcerting actually.
    Because I have a picture memory about some things, I have the tendency to remember every damn detail about some of the rooms I was in... the smells, the sounds.... what the teachers were wearing (and it was accurate, just dated). In one dream we made fun of the teacher for what she was wearing, even though it was correct for the 70's. LOL

    I've also had dreams mostly about law school... where it was final exam time and I wasn't prepared for the exam. It never happened in real life, I always did well.. except for one class and it right after my mother's death.
    The grade was a "B", but it was a horrific experience. Actually the whole time was pretty tramatic, thus I assume part of the reason I relive it in this way.

    I have had that dream many times. I went to HS in NYC(about 300 years ago!) and looooved it - yes, I am one of the few gay guys who was out and had a blast in HS. Dream is usually the same for me. Go into the cafeteria in the morning, meet my friends, do all the stupid stuff HS boys do. As the day wears on however, a kind of uneasy feeling comes over me. Everyone seems too young and kind of ridiculous. I start realizing that I did this already. I start explaining to teachers that the homework being assigned is useless - I know for a fact no one will ever care about it. I realize that I am older than some of the teachers. When I finally leave school it is always night and usually raining but I never get wet. I guess it is some kind of "you can never go back" kind of message but coupled with some truly fond memories. Keep the good memories but keep moving forward.

    I continue to have 2 recurring HS dreams. One is that I see the bus coming down the street and I run out to catch it. When I arrive at the school, I realize I'm not wearing any shoes and have to go back home. The other is that I'm failing several of my classes and I'm not going to be able to graduate.

    I guess they've finally gone away - seems like it's been quite a long time since I had one. They were mostly the
    1) Forgot I was enrolled in that class and the exam is tomorrow and
    2) It's time for the concert and I haven't practiced... in like... 20 years.

    well im no dream interpreter but the jeep caught my attention more than the going back to college thing.
    someone told me when you dream about cars(in your case, a jeep) it actually means that youre about to have a new career path or a change in career(a new journey) and you are emotional about it cause you were crying while driving.
    i dont know whats youre deal but i think you've been wanting a change in your life but something's holding you back but you'll do it anyway even if it hurts others or even you hence, the tears while driving in your dream.
    i might be right, wrong or both, its just an interpretation. dreams are a product of our subconcious mind. what you dream may be a representation of what you think when you are awake, its not heard when you're awake because the concious mind is the dominant one.(i forgot all that psychology about dreams lol)

    I constantly have the dream that I'm in high school and it's time for final exams and I forgot to attend a class all year. I also have a recurring strange one that I go back to being a freshman even though I should be graduating because I don't feel ready to graduate. So, I have to take all four years over again.

    My dream is very similar! I am in high school and I recognize a lot of my friends. I remember asking them why are we here because we all graduated.

    Similar theme to the dreams I have when I'm under stress at work.

    Only with me, it's invariably sitting at an exam table, paper in front of me, and realising I haven't revised a or indeed studied a single thing.

    Awful, awful feeling.

    ?
    I've had dreams where I was back in college -- understandable because college was one of the richest experiences ever. On very rare occcasions I've even dreamed about high school -- but who wants to relive adolescent angst? But never a dream about law school. Some experiences are too nightmarish even to be the stuff of nightmares.

    NAKED DREAMS!
    I had two of them, one where I was naked at work and told everyone to fuck off; and the other was in high school reciting a speech in front of the class.
    Then I told everyone to fuck off, lol!

    Ummm...you fucking mind reader!!! icon_eek.gif
    I just dreamed of going to college during my 1hr nap before work today. I dreamed I was oversleeping and running late for class. Then I woke up and realized I still had time left to get to class, so I got my stuff together to go. Then on my way to class, I wake up again and realize I'm late for work...in real life. Oops. icon_lol.gif
