Dream Weaver

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Over the last 8 or so years I have started to dream less. When I do dream, I very rarely remember them in the morning. However, the circumstances all line up and I do dream and I do remember the basic plot line, they usually revolve around a desperate need for a toilet or missing a plane. Dream sequence #1 is fairly self explanatory, however a recent dream involving me missing a flight to Spain with my cousins Sophie and Marieke resulted in me turning to Google to gather some insight. I do not currently have real-life plans to go to Spain with those two anytime soon, so what could this all mean? What was my brain trying to tell me?

Obviously typing “What do dreams about missing flights mean?” was going to deliver the most reliable results, and PsychicLibrary.com delivered. Apparently dreams that include missing or being late for something is your brain trying to process having too much to deal with. If it involves missing flights/busses/trains it implies that you are overworked and have anxieties about deadlines. The description was rounded off with the positive note that my brain believes that no matter how hard I work, there will never be enough time to get everything done. Great!

So it doesn’t take a genius or a dream interpretation specialist to work out that this is my brain dealing with my dissertation deadline, but last night I had ANOTHER dream about missing a flight and this time it was to Australia. My now fully-conscious self is finding it highly amusing that my dream self was disappointed about missing the plane but was more concerned about the fact that is was an EXPENSIVE flight. Basically, if I stuff up my dissertation, I am wasting a truck load of money.

Cheers, brain. I am well aware. Now if you can please return to focusing on having a decent night’s sleep so that I have the energy to write my dissertation, that would be swell.
