My nights are plagued by a recurring dream. I’ve had this dream at least a dozen times: In the dream I have chosen to return to high school despite the fact that I have already achieved a bachelor degree and a graduate diploma, yet I cannot seem to keep up with the curriculum. My mind wanders in class, I can’t find my timetable to know where I am supposed to be and I constantly question why I am even at school. I always want to drop out and seldom show up for classes. I feel so bad about my conduct and I’m constantly questioning why I’m trying to get a high school qualification when I already have tertiary qualifications. I know that I want to finish my Masters degree, and could easily re-enroll in a university directly instead of taking the much longer high school route. The underlying question in the dream is this: Why do I keep choosing secondary education over tertiary and then resent my own decision?
A tricky dream that I have yet to decipher. I have an inkling of what it’s about but clearly I haven’t hit the proverbial nail on the head since I had the same dream again last night.
