For the last two years, I have the same dream over and over. Some small details change but the jist of the dream is always the same.
I dream that I am still in Grade 12 (matric), its almost exam time and I am desperately trying to catch up with my history and biology work as I have missed my classes during the year. Now the one thing about me is that I never, ever missed school except when I was sick and I never, ever skipped a class while at school. I was the typical good girl (boring, I know).
In the dream, I always end up in my history teacher’s class. He was also was my vice -principal and I am always worried about the work that I missed and how I was going to catch up and write my exams. At school, I loved his class so I cannot imagine why I would dream about skipping his class.
In my dream, I feel my desperation and worry about my exams.
I wake up just as I tell myself that I have finished school and for crying out loud, I have two degrees, which I could not get if I hadn’t passed matric.
The last time I had the dream, about a month ago, I sternly told myself in my dream, that it is just a dream and that this nonsense must stop. I had really thought that would be the end of it.
Well no, I had the same dream last night.
I really can’t imagine why I keep having that particular dream over and over and what it could possibly mean.
