Stuck in high school

I have to meet with my high school guidance counselor at noon today, to discuss if and how I am going to graduate with my class. 

Apparently I've only been attending choir, orchestra and English, and I'm failing the rest of my classes. And graduation is next week. 

I'm totally stressed out about it, even though it was just a dream. 

I have heard that high school dreams are fairly common. I have them all the time and they are definitely my most stressful dreams. About 80 times more stressful than high school actually was. 

I have always had them, but more often now that I have been helping to track down classmates for our reunion this summer. Some of these people haven't crossed my path or my mind for 10 years, so being reminded of all my classmates seems to have freshened this recurrent dream. 

This was the first time I actually made an appointment with a guidance counselor to try to get it worked out (in my dream), so I'm making progress. Maybe in another 10 years I will have it all sorted out so I can stop stressing myself out in my real life. 

Do you have dreams like this?

My high school dreams are always so crazy. They seem to be more dramatic than high school ever was, but maybe I was just used to the drama back then. Maybe the drama of high school would overwhelm me now.

p.s. you going to K's lunch?

My high school dreams involve more of the social aspect. Like the boyfriend that broke my heart or the one whose heart I broke. And I always have children. It's kind of weird. . .

yes - all the time. Though mine are usually college and involve me having signed up for ridiculously hard math or chemistry classes and then inexplicably never going.

didn't they do a Felicity episode like that nightmare? :)

Maybe! I've never seen "Felicity." Are you accusing me of plagiarism? ;)

Yep! Had those dreams. Im working on my reunion too so it maybe its linked. My last one involved cheerleading tryouts,not knowing the routine and being pregnant. AGH! Yes, they can be very scary.
