Back to School Dreams

I received the following dream in an email:

In September I am going into Third Year so I will be doing my Junior Certificate. I had a dream last night that I was in a classroom. It was the same classroom I had in First Class in Primary School.

Anyway, it was the start of the year and the teacher was walking around the room. Usually you get the same teachers for Third Year but I never saw this woman before. She had short blonde curly hair. Actually she looked a lot like my hairdresser. The girl I was sitting next to (she looked like my best friend) was working and I asked her what book we were meant to have. It was the same book I had in Primary School.

I didn't have any books with me so I started to panic. I don't remember what happens after that.

The thing is, most summers I have weird dreams like this before school starts. Especially if they are important years like my first year of Secondary School. Should I be worried about this or is it perfectly normal?


Any new beginning, whether negative or positive, is stressful. Many people don't handle change well and dreams often take on the stresses of the day.

"It was the same classroom I had in First Class in Primary School," indicates a new beginning. Your surprise about the new teacher probably only indicates that you anticipate experiencing new things.

Because your new teacher looks like your hairdresser, ask yourself how you would describe your hairdresser. Qualities she (or he?) possesses could represent qualities that might cause anxiety for you.

Your best friend is probably somebody you trust. While your friend was prepared, you weren't.

Should you be worried? No. Having dreams of being unprepared is typical. Many (maybe most) of us have stress dreams when we are about to embark upon a new venture.

Sometimes dreams are warning us to be prepared. A day planner should help. Write down everything you need to remember and get in the habit of referring to your planner often. That way you'll be prepared.

Do you have a weird dream you would like to share? Write
