🧭 Direction


Consider your current social life and relationships. Are you feeling isolated or disconnected from others? If so, try to reach out and connect with others. On the other hand, if you are feeling overwhelmed by the demands of others, it may be time to set boundaries and prioritize your own needs.

❤️ Feelings

The dream of being in a dorm may evoke feelings of nostalgia, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging. It may bring back memories of shared experiences, late-night conversations, and the excitement of newfound independence. This dream could also symbolize a desire for simplicity, as dorm life often represents a time of minimal responsibilities and carefree living. Overall, the dream of a dorm may elicit emotions of warmth, connection, and a longing for the carefree days of youth.

I was working at a girls dorm at a university and as I walked through one of the common areas, one of the resident assistants gave me a sign out sheet for me to take over her shift so she could get some sleep. I’d remembered that I parked my car crazy so I went to move it but I forgot my keys. A car was getting towed that had double parked in front of my car. I ran back for my keys and then parked my car right. Back in the dorm I interacted with the students and my coworkers. I started taking out nail polish for the students to use. I went to the roof of the building and it was like a huge resort with a huge pool. This man who was tall and fat was like “come on the boat with me!” I said, “sure,” because I was familiar with him. We went around the pool one time in the boat and I remembered I was on duty at the dorm and I needed to go back. He took me back to the starting point. I saw my husband as I went back into the dorm. I expected him to question me but all he said was that he wanted to get on a boat. I went downstairs in the dorm and some boys were knocking on the door to get in. I hesitated because I thought it was a prank. I went to the door and it wasn’t a prank. One of the boys had a crush on me. I let them in to visit who they wanted to visit. I ended up in the basement of the dorm with my daughter Zoie. There were two old hair dryers down there and I was pointing them out to her. I told her that they were older than me or maybe from the early 1980s. Then I ended up in another part of the basement that was like a store. I was trying on crocs for little boys and one of them got stuck on me. My real life coworker Keith was there and I asked him if the crocs were for little boys because they fit weird. He said he didnt know. As he walked by I looked at him and he had the face of my deceased father. As he walked by he said, “I don’t know; you don’t seem lost.” In that moment, I was confused for a second but then I realized my father was telling me that I am not lost (spiritually).

i was in a dorm room when i went out to the city with a friend that disappeared and left me all alone. suddenly i turned into a cat and i started wondering around. i never figured when i turned back into a human but suddenly i was me again in the countryside which reminded me a lot of the village my mother is from. i saw a man with a sharp wooden hand chasing another person of unknown gender and he eventually stabbed them and looked at me as i stood shocked to that sight. then afraid he might chase me down i sprinted down the road and i got to a field of crops and olive trees. then i talked to a woman asking her directions for the village my mother was from. she didnt know. i asked another old lady near by and she told to me head towards the heart of the field, turn left and then go up a hill whose grass made zig zag patterns. i went there. at first when i got out of the field i saw a big mansion which reminded me of a wes anderson film. i passed that and found myself in a forest full of fairies who danced on giant mushrooms. suddenly i wasnt afraid of the man with the black hair and the pale face. i went up the hill while the fairies were dancing around me. they had beautiful long amethyst coloured hair and their song was mesmerizing. i tried to go up the hill and then i woke up.

I was in this training building, it was very similar to a school. The classes were like a labrynth. This building also had dorms where the residents could stay. Each dorm had 3-4 people staying in it. The atmosphere was stale and slightly humid. When I looked around the room i saw no familiar faces but they all said they knew me. After I stepped outside, there was a saltwater lake with a huge grotto surrounded by many trees. This man I used to know, named Cameron was there he jumped into the water and waved to me. He said I should jump in but I shook my head. I was so afraid to jump in; how would I know I could swim like him or anyone else in there, how would I know something wouldn’t try to eat me. The next day the teacher set out an assignment, my heart began to race; the assignment was to go in to the water and allow these fish that she added to bite away all your fat and make you more trim. Soon a building floated over the top of the lake and added the fish. They didn’t look too scary but they only reside in shallows. So they added a 20 ft eel; he looked like a giant water dragon. My heart sank when they told us to swim from one side to the other. I swam as fast as I could and was so tired I eventually didn’t care those small fish where biting me. The next day I helped Cameron move to a new dorm with his class mates, explaining why he needed all of his posters on the walls. He thanked me and I smiled. Looking outside I saw the lake and beyond its surrounding trees there was a field of bright green grass, and a mountain range. We were all called out side for a test examination jumping into the saltwater and staying under the water for 5 mins. Needless to say I was terrified. This faceless person grabbed me and jumped into the water we began spinning under the water. My body felt lifeless I was so scared of being attacked I began to float - giving up, but due to us spinning no fish followed our movements. I reached down to the bottom and touched the sand, it was very soft and fine. After the timer went off we swam to the edge. - That’s when I woke up.

Parking Lot


I was at my old college dorm. I remember it being night and everyone else had parked their cars. I was out at night by myself and I remember seeing a steep hill that would be the driveway up to the parking lot. There were a lot of open spaces in the parking lots for me to park. But I didn’t want to park In someone else’s usual parking spot. So I drove around looking for a spot that people rarely use. After a while of searching I finally found a spot just for me that didn’t bother anyone else. It took some searching and deep thinking about If the spot I chose would bother someone else, but it didn’t so I chose it and felt relieved that I found a spot.

Violence and death


Again I was in my uni dorm but the door to my room wouldn’t close at all. The people who occupied the same floor as me would constantly enter my room to mess with me weather I’m in the room or not. I get so fed up with one of the people that I gouged their eyes out and threw them down the stairs. I’m then sat with some people I use to work with. They are grieving but it’s not so clear what it is they are grieving the main person there was talking about losing two mothers? At the end of my dream I’m in a situation place that’s a closer representation to my current living situation. However while I’m sleeping i dreamed that both my daughter had managed to open their stair gets and make it down the stairs.

I’m in my dorm room and on a call with my girlfriend Colleen it is 1am. We are looking through someone’s instagram profile then my friend Charlie who lives in the same building as me calls. I pick up and turn on the lights. She tells me that I have lost the keys to a black and white sedan and they’re looking for me. I tell her I don’t have a car and she elaborates that they’re using this as an excuse to search people’s rooms and that she’s already had her room searched. I say ok and put down the phone and try to hide my 2cb pills. I try everywhere but can’t find a good enough hiding spot. I hear the searchers coming down the hallway and I put them in my pocket. A man opens my door and sees that I am already waiting for him. I tell him that someone told me that I was going to get searched already and he tells me to go down the hall to be body searched by someone while he searches my room and I realise there’s no way out.

I was at school but not really school, and I decided to wear really high heals but I could barely walk around in them. I stopped in the library before class to study and I saw my guys friends. I thought it was funny I was taller then them and I put my hands on their heads to show I was taller. Then I ended up deciding to stay there and skip class because I didn’t want to go. The library turned into a dirt barn and I was with some of my friends and my highschool track coach. He was showing us how to throw a shot put. We ended up leaving and I was walking around campus but it was actually just a place with stores and I looked around at what there was. The heels were making it hard to walk so I put on flip flops. Some guys were saying it was stupid that I put on flip flops instead of my heals but another girl said she understood. Then I decided to head back to my dorm and I went back to my dorm but I was in my heals again struggling to walk and I tried to run across a road before a car got there but I could barely move.

I was in college walking on campus through cross of people, when one of my close friends, Robert HAGGINS, punched me in the back of my head. He ran, and since I had on a Pajama Set, I power walked to the building he went into, My StepMom, Ms. Tracy Smith, was in the building walking up some stairs, Rob was up the stairs, past her going into a dorm room. I power walked up the stairs past her, into the dorm room. I yelled at Rob, asking him, why did you hit me in my head. I looked at him, and tried to stay serious, but a smile broke out on my face. Robert slowly walked out of my field of vision. I left the dorm, and went back outside to go home, and I saw Dajuan walking in the crowd of people, he said “Put on some clothes folk,” I said okay and started to walk to the bus stop to go home. I lived at the Gateway At Seminole Suites. Then my Cell Phone Alarm, woke me up.

I was in college, and the teacher was picking out who would be able to stay in a teacher’s room, that was like a dorm room, already. I don’t recall the rest

Going to my highschool that wasn’t my highschool. The campus had summoned dorms and I had to sign up for one. The building looked super wacky and like it was out of a doctor suess book and i didn’t think it looked safe because of how tall it was. The receptionist (who I’ve never seen before in my life) told me I’d have the highest floor in the building and I was like “oh no nononono” cause I was super scared of that, the building went above the clouds. But later on I convinced myself it would be okay.

High School


I was in a small college town where I knew a lot of people, some I knew from when I was in college and some were past co-workers. It was night time and we all met up to get food and drinks, I was having such a fun time, but something felt off. I was forgetting to do something but couldn’t remember what. The next day, I woke up in what seemed like my dorm room and looked at my phone and it said Saturday, March 2nd and then I remembered, I was supposed to meet up with my friend the day before because he was leaving that Saturday morning. I started to panic and freak out, I missed my last chance to see him before he left and I didn’t know when I’d see him again. I started running down the hall, I got to a point in the hallway where you needed a key card to get thru and as I was running and trying to scan the card, I ran into a familiar person from high school. The person wasn’t a friend and I hadn’t seen him since graduation. I ended up dropping my key card and having to get help to scan in to the other section of the hallway. When I made it through, I collapsed on the floor and started crying because I missed my last opportunity to see my friend.
