A couple nights ago- I had the dream again. Over the past twenty years I have had this dream probably 25-30 times. It isn’t always the exact dream but it’s always pretty close. In the dream I am back in college. At the start of the semester I attended a couple of my classes- just once and somehow forgot about them. Flash forward it is late in the semester- it’s always the fall semester in my dream- and it’s December and I realize that I haven’t gone to these two classes since August. I fell my only way out is to go to the professors of the classes and see if I can somehow make up the work and tests I have missed. I am full of fear- is it too late for me to just drop the classes and not get an F? How will this effect my graduating? I always wake up on my way to the professors offices- and it always takes me at least 30 seconds to realize it was just a dream and I feel relieved. …. I think I know what has inspired this nightmare. Back in college there was an education class I had to take. I think it was called Developmental Education. My roommate had taken the class and told me all i had to do was read the chapters and come in and take the four tests- no need to go to class. That is what I did- and he was correct. Missing class wasn’t held against you and all the grades we had were from the four tests. It was a great savings of time. I only went 5 times- the first class- and then the four tests. I never had another class like that- but I think somehow that experience stayed with me- and causes this nightmare?
