Back when I was in The Corsham School Sixth Form, I was pretty proud of my 100% attendance. I was the only person to have that high a level of attendance and I even got a special acknowledgement of that fact during our leaver’s event. Although, to be honest, always coming in was sometimes to my detriment.
With this in mind, it’s weird that my attendance during sixth form keeps popping into my dreams. For example, last night I dreamt that I was at the gym with three of my friends (who, funnily enough, are not even aware of each other in reality) and we were having a nice time exercising and socialising. Then I looked at the time – oh dear, I had a history class starting in ten minutes and I was over an hour away! And the final exam is a few days away! Now that I think about it, I don’t remember anything at all about history and it feels like years since I last went in! Then, in my hurry to get there in time, I woke up and it took me a moment to realise that I had my history exam years ago and it was fine.
Around a month or so ago, I dreamt I was out having a big Christmas meal with all of my friends. It was really nice. In reality, I didn’t get to see a lot of my friends this Christmas and that was quite sad, but in the dream, they were all there. I was in a comfortable chair, feeling very happy and content (it was night time) and then I looked at the time – oh dear! Once again, I have ten minutes to get to a class that’s far away and my exam is just around the corner. Once again, I woke up and had to take a moment to assure myself that I had passed my exams years ago without any trouble.
I won’t bother writing up every time that it’s happened, because I’m always having a perfectly nice and normal dream and then I realise I have a class to go to. Usually it’s a history class, but sometimes it’s an English class. It seems weird to me, because I have never had a recurring dream like this before (or a recurring element of a dream, perhaps I should say) and especially not one that has me questioning reality when I wake up.
I did a little bit of internet research and a lot of people have had similar recurring dreams. A friend of mine mentioned having it sometimes too. According to Reliable Internet Experts, these dreams are caused by having forgotten something in real life. But I have no idea what it could be. I certainly hope that I haven’t forgotten anything! My friend thought they could be caused by not having enough time to dedicate to everything I want to do, which could be it. I’d rather it be that, actually, as it would mean I haven’t forgotten anything. Either way, I’m curious to see how long this lasts.
