Dreamt that a nearby country dropped a nuclear bomb and affected surrounding countries last night. I can remember the name of those countries but I shall keep it anonymous just in case it stirs political shit.
Anyway I found myself with some of my classmates from sec sch and JC in this big room like Suntec Convention Centre awaiting doom with this big screen in front of us constantly replaying the footage while broadcasting news updates now and then. Meanwhile, we were also playing with lego (ok maybe its a way to calm us down or something) and trying to seal the corners of the walls with duct tape.
Then towards the end emotions got a bit depressing when the screen played something which i cant remember now and i went to hide with my classmate to avoid looking at the screen. After that one of my sec sch teachers came in and told us to stop our nonsense and ordered us to dismantle the lego structures and peel off the duct tape. Couldnt understand why he wasnt panicking and treating a near-apocalypse so lightly but I woke up by then.
So anyway looking at the main key objects of the dream I googled their meanings.
1. For nuclear bomb
To dream of a nuclear bomb suggests feelings of helplessness and loss of control. You are experiencing some strong hostility and rage, where it is nearly destructive. Important changes are about to occur.You may also be expressing a desire to wipe out some aspect of yourself. Alternatively, the nuclear bomb serves as an indication that something crucial and precious to you has ended.
Oh gawd. Like what? I cant think of anything right now. Ok lets move on to nuclear war
2. Nuclear war
To dream of a nuclear war represents feelings of hopelessness to overcome a problem that only makes things worse. A struggle against total devastation of a life situation or relationship. Feeling that you are fighting against a problem that risks all that you care about. Risking everything you have to keep everything you have.
Not positive either. Alhough i dont know what i will risk.
3. Bomb shelter (ok suntec convention centre is a pseudo bomb shelter in the dream)
To dream that you are in a bomb shelter suggests that you are being overly protective with some emotion or aspect of your waking life. You are trying to keep your unexpressed feeling from coming to the surface
Wonder what is that unexpressed feeling.
To see or play with Legos in your dreams indicates your ability to make something out of a single block. It may refer to the “building blocks” or foundation of some plan. The dream may also be a pun on “let go”. Is there something in your waking life that you need to let go
So which one is it?
To see old classmates in your dream indicate that you need to draw on your old associations with your former classmates to gain insight in some current relationship. It represents a past lesson that you have learned and is applicable in some aspect of your waking life now.
Hmm i cant find it applicable now.
6. Duct tape
To see or use duct tape in your dream represents your strong hold or grasp of some situation. You are able to separate your feelings and be objective
I have always been objective. Cough.
To see your teacher (past or present) in your dream suggests that you are seeking some advice, guidance, or knowledge. You are heading into a new path in life and are ready to learn by example or from a past experience. Consider your own personal experiences with that particular teacher. What subject was taught? Alternatively, a teacher relates to issues with authority and seeking approval. You may be going through a situation in your waking life where you feel that you are being treated like a student or in which you feel you are being put to a test. Also pay attention to the demeanor and attitude of the teacher in your dream. If the teacher in your dream is mean, then it implies that you may be putting too much pressure on yourself to succeed.
Yeah he was mean cos he thought we were making mountains out of molehills during an apocalypse. But he didnt teach me in any subject.
To attend or watch a movie or television screening in your dream suggests that you are watching life pass you by. Perhaps you are living vicariously through the actions of others. Consider also how the movie parallels to situations in your waking life. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you need to take a step back and look at some waking relationship more objectively.
Not very applicable here if my waking life is a nuclear bomb.
To watch or read the news in your dream signifies an important message from your subconscious. Alternatively, the dream may mean that you need to be more objective in a situation.
To hear good news in your dream is a dream of the contrary and represents a negative turn in events. If you hear bad news in your dream, then a situation is not as bad as you had anticipated.
Not as bad as i thought? Haha.
10. Hiding (ok i swear this is the last one!)
To dream that you are hiding suggests that you are keeping some secret or withholding some information. You may not be facing up to a situation or dealing with some issue. However, you may be getting ready to reveal something and confess before somebody finds out. To dream that someone is hiding indicates that you are looking for a sense of security and protection.
So i need some security and i am going to confess something.
Overall, nothing positive. Probably indicating me to do some soul searching. But there is another saying that goes dreams are the opposite of reality. So i think i am going to be fine!
And….my 1st paper is TOMORROW. oh gawd i just hope it wont be as terrible as a nuclear war.
