    Nightmares...

    My nightmares typically consist of college related themes... Usually they are about me finding out I was enrolled in a class and didn't go, only to have to go the the final and try not to fail it, or they are about me missing crucial deadlines or missing required credits and not being able to graduate...

    All of this, and I've been graduated since 2004 from ISU and 2005 from Columbia. The other day I actually had to go look at my diploma after I woke up to make myself feel better.

    It's really the only nightmares I ever have, and they are crazy realistic.

    Anyone else have recurring college nightmares, or recurring anything odd like that?

    Re: Nightmares...

    I have reaccuring nightmares of where I'm 10 walking down the street. Some guy in a van says "want some candy?". I say "sure!" I get in and he continues driving. Then he suffers a stroke, and the van swerves out of control. When the van finally stops, I'm in Uganda, Africa. I'm kidnapped by Kony, and I fight in his child army. Then I get stabbed by an ewok.

    I have the exact same one. It's very common and I have it often too. I also have one that's worse where I'm being shipped back to a Marine Corps unit. I haven't had a nightmare about any other subject in years.

    I have had the "you signed up for a course and didn't know it" nightmare before. Bad times.

    School related nightmares are common. Loud sounds or family voices yelling is my other one.

    Re: Nightmares...

    I've had similar school/graduation nightmares. They're very "real" feeling dreams too, which is a trip. It's nice to wake up and realize that I'm not screwed.

    Re: Nightmares...

    I have the same ones with the twist of I thought I dropped the course, but find out it didn't go through, so I try to take the final without failing. Weird thing is, its clearly a college course and I am fully aware that I am at ISU but the classes are always in my high school rooms.

    I used to have the "forgot to go to a class and now have to take the final" dream all the time. Graduated in '99 and I've just recently stopped having them.

    Isn't it weird that so many people have this exact same dream while most of the worlds population wouldn't get it? What are their nightmares about?

    I have had a similar nightmare as well. I went to all my classes except one. I didn't know why I wasn't motivated to go. I started to panic during finals week about trying to pass the class.

    It is really weird that others have had this similar nightmare.

    Re: Nightmares...

    In my dreams while in school, I dreamed that I forgot about a class all quarter long and that I was then destined to fail. It must be a common nightmare or dream. Better than jumping off a high bridge.
