Another one of my odd dreams. This one occurred at what can only be described as a badly mangled version of the old Belconnen Bus Interchange, mixed with a derivation of my primary school. A few copies of the interchange’s bridges exist, with the interchange itself being replaced by the school canteen.
For some reason in this dream I happen to be a student in a Year 6 music and dance class at my age, which makes me ten years older than any of the other students. The task for the day is that the teacher will play three songs, and in pairs we must all sing along and dance to the songs…and if we don’t, we fail and must start primary school again.
I recognised two lines of the first song (Taylor Swift’s “Love Story”) and didn’t recognise the other songs at all. I tried to inform my partner of this but she wasn’t in the least bit interested, so I tried to break away from her and chase the teacher who was on on of the other bridges and was yelling about how naughty I was being.
Eventually I broke away, much to the disappointment of my partner, and chased the teacher through large crowds on these tunnels, and eventually caught up to her in the canteen as the songs were finishing. I informed her that I didn’t recognise the songs, which annoyed her as they were her three favourite songs. She informed me that my punishment would be lunchtime detention, in which I would have the songs played to me continuously until I knew them well enough to write the lyrics accurately without hearing the songs.
I walked outside and started reading the canteen menu to decide what to eat for lunch (although the teacher was quite angrily yelling “no eating during detention”) when the partner who had refused to let go earlier came over and apologised to me.
I then decided to resign from primary school on the grounds that I didn’t really need to graduate from primary school, after all the last time I graduated from primary school I didn’t want to graduate and broke down in tears at the end of the ceremony.
