October undated 1985
I was at school - it was in the country - I saw people I used to know and who used to know each other (who also knew me)

December 1, 2005
Non-Literal (not enrolled in school)
I go to school, but have too many classes - some are scheduled at the same time. I rush to do everything at once - I fall behind in one class, especially - Can't get to it, can't find the books, have to cram for the test - hope I can get at least a "C" in some of the classes I've been skipping.

Literal School Dreams
My fall 1990 schedule was extra full because I took four academic classes, including statistics. I had the following dream August 27, 1990, just after registration: I go to school. I have four classes. I need to get all organized - find out what I need to write for each class, etc. I had two dreams about statistics class, a subject I ended up loving: A dream about measurement, statistics. How far off something is from the middle, etc., (Dated October 2, 1990) probably referring to my fascination with the bell curve. And a quite literal dream, I'm in school - a lesson on statistics. (December 8, 1990)





Dream Journal 1979 - 2021

My dream journal was handwritten in 285 notebooks. I typed the notebooks into the computer from January 2018 to June 2020, working part-time. Recently I added the rest of 2020, and up to April 2021. To count statistics, I noted the main characters with a modified H/VdC coding system. Dr. G. William Domhoff offered guidance on the coding, and advice on other decisions along the way. For one thing, he advised me to type the whole thing, including notations I wrote about waking life.
