Some people have recurring dreams about losing teeth, showing up someplace important naked, or about being chased. Sleep dreaming is not something I do regularly. I'll have an occasional, nonsensical dream in which the premise is all but forgotten by the time I'm coherent in the morning. The most common (which isn't that often) dream for me is when I've been doing something repetitive just before I go to bed. Whatever it is, I will do it all night in my sleep. That type of dream began when I started waitressing and bartending. After particularly busy and late nights I'd wait tables and make drinks in my sleep and/or dream that I fell asleep in the restaurant/bar and got locked in. Nowadays, I'm not working into the late night at school, but sometimes I will work on some monotonous task before bedtime like grading papers, reviewing student data, or researching for a lesson. If that's the case, I will also do those tasks in my sleep. Although they are terribly annoying and exhausting, they're not all that exciting in the dream department.
The last two nights, I've had two dreams that aren't my typical MO and that I remembered the next day. Last night I took a test of some kind ALL NIGHT LONG. And the night before was mostly spent on parking my car and trying to find it again...over and over again. I didn't do either right before sleeping or at all during the day for that matter.
I don't take much stock in dream interpretation, but I did look them both up out of curiosity. It seems exams and parking the car are a common subject of dreams. Maybe there is some truth to what the interpretation says...I can see some things that apply. Interesting.
