Worst Dream Ever

I just woke up from the worst dream I've ever had. I'm not happy.
I've always been glad that for the most part I don't have bad dreams. I have odd dreams, and I've had bad experience dreams. But this is the first time in my whole life that I've woken up in a cold sweat and crying.
So what did I dream?
That I was back in college (which was eerily reminiscent of a poorly lit Union Station in DC), and I was in the bathroom, and suddenly my backpack broke and nearly falls in the toilet. As I scrambled to get all of my papers and books off the floor and save them from the toilet, I found materials for a class I had dropped out of (Guitar 101- a class I never did take in school). And then suddenly, the girl in the stall next to me says, "Oh are you in that class too? Are you ready for the final?" Then I realize I may still be in the class, and that I'm about to fail my final. It's the last day of classes and I have to find the registrar's office to find out what classes I am in. So I go running (holding all of my books, gym clothes, and inexplicably 2 rolls of toilet paper) to find the office. I finally find it (it was hiding behind a car dealership- I never said this all made sense) and I ask for my schedule. The registrar tells me I'm in Guitar 101 and I'm also in an English class, and I've never attended either of them. And if I don't get perfect grades on both of the finals I won't pass the classes. And if I don't pass, I won't graduate that week.
I started to cry and freak out, and finally I just woke up. I was in a cold sweat and trembling and still crying. And I really really had to pee really bad.
I never ever want to dream like that again.

  1. Ugh. I've had dreams too that I was still in school and taking a final for a class I thought I'd dropped.
    Funny - it was recent too - as in during this period of unemployment. It must be a manifestation of feeling unprepared in life.
