I've had the nearly exact kind of dreams about 'missing classes' about 30 times - especially since I graduated from University - And for the first
22 years of my life, I hardly ever missed a class or missed doing homework assignements -
In these recurring dreams, I most often am walking around a 'high school' campus in the US - desperately looking for some class I am supposed to be
in already (usually it's around May or June (end of school year) and normally the sun is out and it is around noontime or shortly after 1pm every
time) ..then but suddenly not sure of my schedule at all -- that is, where 'exactly' I am supposed to be at that very moment -
And in those 'sad' and 'lost' dreams, when I finally do locate the class I suspect I am suposed to be in, and manage actually to walk into it
facing a classfull of students, most of whom seem like strangers and not like familiar classmates, I don't always 'know' where my assigned seat
location is suposed to be -
Also often in these kinds of recurring dreams, I seem to have been out of school for a while and have piled up several homework assignments only
partially finished in my notebook, all of which I have not turned in yet...and more are expected by e.g. the next day from the Teacher.
I also am a 'middle child' who was 'expected from the age of 4' to 'go to college' and thus I got straight-A's practially every year...I was
certainly 'over parented' and lived my life for the 1st 22 years of my life 'by the bell' as they say (attending summer school every year as well
- which allowed me to graduate early at 16 years old with enough credits )
I suspect my own history of having 'finished' High School a full 2 years earlier than normal might be related to the sense of still having literal
'unfinished' classes or 'unfinished' homework assignments -
But I concur with some of the others on this thread that these recurring dream-nightmares which drip so much of 'failure and irresponsibility'
emotions (quite scary for those overparented middle children who are generally 'people-pleasers' who do what is expected of them way too much) ,
that it might be some kind of a message from my own sub--conscious flagging me to get in touch with what I perhaps SHOULD be doing in terms of a life
Life on earth does seem rather school-like in my opinion - although in real life here, they don't always tell you what exact class you're in at the
time or what exactly you should be learning and from whom !
