I have several recurring dreams. One is that I’m in school and I have no idea what my schedule is, where my classes are, or what I should have been studying. And then, suddenly, it’s the end of the semester, and I’m in danger of failing because I’ve missed so many classes. But how was I supposed to go to class? I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT CLASSES I HAD!

Then, I have the angry, punching dreams. But, it’s always like I’m swinging through water, and no matter how hard I try to hit, I can barely make contact. Along those same lines, I sometimes dream about playing a sport, but I can’t run, and sometimes I can’t open my eyes. Why that stupid coach keeps putting me in, I have no idea.

So, as you can imagine, I sometimes wake up more stressed than I was when I went to bed.

However, I also have an amazing dream — probably once every month or so, I dream that I’m flying. I mean, I’m still ME, it’s not like I’m a bird, and it definitely takes a good bit of effort, but I can do it, and it’s incredibly exhilarating. And, I remember having this dream as a small child, young enough to wonder if I might actually have a special power. Fortunately, I was afraid enough of heights that I never tried jumping off anything too high.

My mom doesn’t remember as many of her dreams, but in any that she does remember, she’s my age — never at her current age. I’ll be really curious to see if that happens to me as I get older, too.

So, what about you? Do you guys have weird dreams, or recurring ones, or both? Or do you know what all this stuff means? Because I’m pretty sure it means I’m spectacular, but I could be wrong.
