Dreams and Exams

I usually don’t remember my dreams. But whenever I’m worried about something I have the same dream. I dream that I’m in school and I have an exam to do and I haven’t studied for it. I wake up and I’m glad that I don’t have to do exams any more. At least not in the way we had to in school.

In life everything is one big exam and its preparation is not as easy as reading a book or preparing test questions. Sometimes when you least expect it, a big problem stares back at you and you haven’t the foggiest what to do about it.

These days my biggest test is getting my son to school. Every morning I spend at least half an hour convincing him to go to school. I’ve already checked many times with his teacher and principal and they are very happy with his performance at school and have told me that once he gets to school he has no problems whatsoever.

The problem has increased ever since he visited the big school for assessment. Now he thinks his school is for babies. I’ve tried telling him that the big school won’t take him until he finishes his term at his present school but he’s not convinced. The last few times I got him to school when I told him I would race him inside.

As far as dreams are concerned my son has very vivid and imaginative dreams. Sometimes he feels the need to wake me up in the middle of the night and tell me about them. At other times he waits till the morning to tell me in great detail about his dreams. They are more like stories with a beginning, middle and end. Sometimes they also change during the day while he is telling different people about them.

I envy him sometimes. I wish I could dream of dragons and beanstalks and bravery and adventure.

  2. I hate anxiety dreams – in mine even if I realize it’s a dream there are times I can’t wake myself up and so the next day you’re just so exhausted despite the sleep.

  3. If only we could have those sweet imagination dreams again huh? we’d probably have better days lol I’m the same way as you are on when it comes to dreaming about stuff 🙂

  4. I think everyone everywhere has that same dream about not studying for the test. My other one is being at school, walking by a classroom and remembering with horror that I was supposed to be in that class, but had forgotten to go all year. High school insecurity rearing it’s ugly head.
