Last night I had a dream that began in a large open auditorium. I was taking a biology test that was formatted strangely: there was just a list of random phrases and we were supposed to write down what they meant. I specifically remember something about X & Y chromosomes. There were tons of people taking the test, and some were talking and shouting answers at each other across the room (including that last one about chromosomes). I kept thinking to myself, “Don’t they realize this is a test?” and looking to the teacher to see if he would say anything to them. It took me quite a while to get through my explanation for the first one, but as I worked through them, I felt like I knew what I was doing. There were only two other people left when my former friend Madeline came up to me and said something like, “Should we wait for you to finish?” I told her to go ahead without me. I got to this page with a long paragraph and got up and went into a church where there was something projecting words onto the back wall. It was hard to make out what it said; there were several different things written on top of each other. I seem to remember that I was standing in front of an altar, and there was a man and woman there, too. The man said something to me like, “Oh, now I see why you’re here; you’re trying to read that,” and kind of smirked.
Next thing I know, I’m walking with a group of friends from college toward a classroom. We pass an attractive guy in a suit and I say, “Hey there,” looking straight at him (not something I’d normally do, I’m impressed with myself). Then we pass two other guys who aren’t as attractive and I just walk by them into the classroom.
Then I’m outside about to sit on a blanket with three other people: one girl who I went to high school with who also goes to the same college that I do, another one who I don’t recognize at first but realize is a girl I know who is a year younger who went to my HS, and then a guy that I’m supposed to be meeting at a New Year’s party coming up. I sit on the blanket and say hi to all of them, and then I woke up.
I have some ideas about what this means, but anyone willing to interpret is welcome to do so!
