I woke up screaming last night. I checked the time – it was 2:10 am. My end of semester nightmares are starting again. Ugh!
I tried to go back to asleep again but when I closed my eyes, I could see the same nightmare starting again. It’s like the last time I watched a scary movie. I was too freaked out to go back to sleep. Curiously, I unplugged my tablet, brought it to bed, and googled “dream interpretation.”
In my nightmare, I was walking along a lake shore, rocks and pebbles crunched beneath my feet. I was talking to my mom on the phone. What the conversation was about, I’m not sure. Before me, in the lake, two fins rose above the water and began destroying islets in the middle of the lake, sawing them in half. Unaware, I find myself walking toward the wooden dock, watching rocks get split in half while conversing with my mom.
As I got off the phone, one of the fins swam toward me. I staggered back a few steps and started to run but I was tripped by something slimy. As I fell, something picked me up and suddenly, I found myself face to face with a shark. At this point, I felt my heart pounding a thousand beats a minute and as the shark swallowed me, I woke up in my bed, screaming.
What does it mean?
According to Dream Symbol, a dream involving sharks may mean – just to name a few – I am anxious, nervous, or in fear about something, I am sensing danger, I am fearing the worst, or just the harsh reality of life.
Okay, I’ll admit it. I am nervous about my two finals next week and the final presentation and the 8-page paper due within the next two days, not to mention I am heading to China next month and my health insurance is not taken care of. I really hope Obamacare gets repealed soon. It is very frustrating for me because I got denied by the state medicaid and Obamacare and have been trying to get it appealed but the government is always so slow at doing things.
As for the other explanations, I don’t know. Is there danger around me I don’t know about? I would say I’m a little afraid of traveling alone in Asia. After all, this is a dog-eat-dog world, especially in Asia but I’ve been in worse places before.
Maybe I’m thinking too much. Maybe this nightmare is just about the harsh reality of life, a signal that another semester is once again coming to an end and that means grades are about to come out. Honestly, I’m not too worried about this semester’s grades. I will graduate either way.
So why am I so anxious? No idea but I can say this, this end-of-semester nightmares will be the only thing I won’t miss about school. Of course, I won’t miss the studying and trying to get a good grade.
