Have I shared with you the recurring dreams I have about high school? Regardless of how old I get, a few times a month I have one of the following dreams...
1. I'm looking for my locker, but they are all so small and look so much the same that I can't remember which one it is. And I can't find the paper they give you on the first day of school that tells you your locker number. Panic ensues.
2. I've found my locker, but I can't remember the combination! And, again, that stupid paper with the combination is missing as well. More panic.
3. I've opened the locker, but I'm running to class and all of my binders are out of sorts. I can't remember which one is for which class. Panic!
4. I've got my binders, and now it's time to go to class, but I can't remember the order of the classes. Where do I go? What's my schedule? Is it an A, B, C, or D day? Do I have gym? Annnnndd I wake up in a panic, only soothed by the fact that I'm in my comfy house, ten years out of high school, and I never need to worry about that nonsense again.
Can you tell I was an anxious child?
This has nothing to do with high school, but my other most popular dream concerns my wedding. It's my wedding day and I'm getting ready, but I realize that I'm marrying the wrong man! The man is always faceless, so I have no idea who he is, but I know that as soon as I marry him I'm going to cheat on him with Nick. I just know it. Again, panic ensues and I try to figure out a way to escape him and his nonsense wedding. I feel like I'm making the worst mistake of my life. And the best part of that dream is waking up and seeing Nick next to me. In my dreamy confusion, I feel relief that I married the right one, but I also feel like I got away with something tricky. Take that, faceless man!
There is no conclusion to this narrative, other than I have some anxiety, I have trouble with lockers, and apparently I married the guy I want to cheat with. Weird?
