Dream of this AM

So this morning I was dreaming that I was on a bus, like a city bus not a school bus, on my way to school. I kept getting hit by these big huge bags that people were carrying... they would walk off the bus and as they walked past me, they would hit me with the bag. When I finally got to my destination, it was inside a classroom (like I got off the bus directly into the classroom) and I sat down at one of those old school wooden desks. Then the phone rang and V woke me up and I could've killed him. According to dreammoods...

Bus: To dream that you are riding a bus, implies that you are going along with the crowd. You are lacking originality and are taking no control over where your life is taking.

Bus Driver: To see a bus driver in your dream, indicates leadership in some group idea or plan. It is symbolic of collective power. Alternatively, it suggests that you are going around in circles and have showed little progress.

Bags: To see a bag in your dream, represents the responsibilities that you carry. If the bag is ripped or torn, then it indicates that you are carrying a lot of burden.

Hit: To dream that you hit something or someone, is symbolic of unexpressed anger and aggression. You tend to keep your negative feelings inside instead of expressing them in a healthy way. (but I'm being hit so I don't know what this means although will freely admit that I keep negative feelings inside instead of expressing them in a healthy way).

Desk: To see or sit at your desk in your dream, suggests that you are evaluating and weighing your problems. It is indicative of self-exploration and discovery.

Wood: (Since the desk was very clearly wood) To dream of wood, suggests that you are feeling dead inside and emotionless. You may be behaving automatically and just going along with the flow. Or you may be acting out without fully thinking things through.

Great so I'm dead inside but just flowing along like the river...

I think that what your dream is saying is that now that you have spent the past several months making changes in your life (exercise, adventures, etc.) and making big decisions for the future (grad. school) you have now reached a point where you feel like you aren't doing anything again. The changes you made are in place and ticking along now. Grad. school has stalled out since you have to wait longer than you were expecting to start. Also, you were hoping your boss wouldn't come back and that you could get her job, but now that she has come back, you are still stuck in the same position, doing the same old thing. (All this represents by all the "just being pulled along" elements of your dream.)

Additionally, since one school of thought is that all people in your dreams represent different aspects of yourself, you were actually hitting yourself with the bags in your dream. You are angry at yourself for the things that you feel are not right in your life and are your fault and probably for the things that are not your fault. In addition, even though your nephew as not come to live with you and has gone to live with your parents, you have been pulled into the drama and feel like you must shoulder some of the burden of getting his life straightened out.

ok, i'm done :)

So what does it mean if you don't remember dreams?
