Going Back to High school
I'm Back in High school
It was first day of school at the opening ceremony and I was struggling to find my class. Everyone was so young, it was difficult to recognize my friends. I felt old (am now 21). After I found my class, I saw my best friends. I go to the bathroom with one and my friend applies cream on my back where I got a tattoo. I try to explain to her that something is wrong because everyone is small and I'm “big”. Then we decide to sneak out for a cigarette behind the school, hiding in the bushes. While smoking, kids in the window of a house nearby laugh at us and scare us by filming us on a camera. My friend runs back to school; I follow her but everyone is inside already, only our teacher is waiting for us. She beats my friend for being late, and I argue that's she awfully harsh and couldn't stand it, so I went home. On my way, I meet my mom and ask her how old I am; she tells me I’m 21. I explain something is wrong because I have to go to school with young children, but she only smiles.
Felt like something was missing and didn't know how to get it.
Main Life Issues:
Someone is somewhere they think they’ve outgrown, yet acts like those they should have outgrown.
High school: The school of life; what we have to learn.
Sneaking a cigarette: Breaking the rules.
Tattoo: Sometimes associated with being a rebel; edgy. Clash between the older generation and the new.
What it Means:
You say love is your main issue and that may be what you want. However, the dream indicates work issues or rebelliousness about growing up in general, is what you have to currently deal with.
The dream shows someone who thinks they should be farther along (past school) yet act young-ish (get tattoo, sneak out for a cigarette, late for class). The dream tells you that even though you think you have grown up and are beyond authority, rules and being told what to do, you still have a lot to learn. Newsflash – there is a lot to learn all your life and in that sense, life is a continuous school.
The dream indicates that you resist accepting where you are at and are not as mature as you think you are. Perhaps you feel those around you like bosses, are harsh (e.g. if you are not on time). Life can be tough if you rebel; others do not meet you half way or cater to your likes and dislikes. It is you who has to adjust. However, if a job does not feel right, you can switch, but you’ll have to measure up whatever you are.
Bottom Line: The dream suggests that it's time to grow up and take a step in maturity. Take heart! Everyone eventually figures out the rules of life and finds the work and the social life that suits them. It takes time. Accepting where you are at will get you there faster.
