Yeah, I have this dream and a lot of variations on it.
Sometimes it turns out that one of my degrees has been invalidated and I have to go back to take a class to get it back.
Sometimes it turns out that I even have to go back to highschool.
A lot of times, when it's the end of the semester, the reason I will get a bad grade in this particular class is that even from the beginning of the semester I was never able to find the room it was held in.
Other times, I drop in and out of the class, but over the course of the semester I get overwhelmed with all the courses I'm taking and forget about one.
And often the reason I'm doing so badly in the course is that it's something I know nothing about ("Religion in 15th Century France", let's say). Though often, when I'm wondering why I'm taking that course, it's the tip off that I'm dreaming.
Schooling seems to be a pretty traumatizing experience.
