So I had this vivid dream last night, and if any of you have any opinions as to what it could mean, feel free to share. I think I should preface this with a bit of background about my job. I have been there for ten years, and I’ve been in and out of the writing department twice now. The loss of this position and the department where I am now are sources of my increase in stress. But in the dream, I was at work and about to leave the writing department, but the office was my dorm room from my senior year. Two of my coworkers from the writing department were there – one of whom was laid off and the other one was also taken out of the writing department with me. Anyhow, in the dream, I remember being excited about the coming year at school, and I was planning on introducing my two coworkers to my roommates and college friends. I was walking around the campus, and I was so relieved knowing that I wouldn’t have to go back to work because I was starting school in a couple of days. What made the dream so vivid was that I was so happy. I mean, I was literally skipping around the campus. I can’t remember ever being so relieved and joyful in a dream.
I guess I could go the obvious route and say that I should leave my job. Duh! I’ve known that for several months now, but I just had this feeling that my subconscious was trying to tell me something else. Any guesses, thoughts or opinions?
