i was at the end of the year picnic for high school. it was dusk; everyone gathered around the picnic tables to plan on what they were doing that night. i wasn't really a part of the "in crowd" of high school, so i was just chillin' there and listening to them with no intention to join them later. i don't know why, but it there were a few black people in the crowd that were doing all the planning, and i remember thinking to myself "i really didn't think that these (particular) group of people would graduate." i know that's racist, but apparently they were notoriously bad kids in school so it wasn't hard to assume that much about them.
they were talking about having a party later that night for the rest of the group. then one of the girl approaches and inspects me, then saying "i want that girl to join us tonight." i looked at her and was like, "uh... me? what?" she said, "yeah. you." and for some reason i felt totally validated by my peers and was excited to see how the rest of the night would turn out.
that's all i remember, lol. i think it's because i was an unbelievably huge loser in high school and, in retrospect, kind of regret not being more social during those years. meh, what can you dooooo

Either way, going to school or attending class in a dream is your unconscious reminder that there is a need for new learning and that you may have not learned an important lesson. School may not always be a positive experience, but it is always necessary. Ask yourself what do you need to learn more about? If you were a teacher in your dream, you may be dealing with issues of authority. From a spiritual point of view, some believe that in the dream state an individual may travel to an inner plane or the spiritual realm, where they can attend classes that assist in spiritual growth and development.
More than a symbol, the year is, as it were, the prototype of all cyclic
processes (the day, the span of human life, the rise and fall of a culture, the cosmic
cycle, etc.). All cycles are composed of an ascending and a descending phase, i.e.
evolution and involution; sometimes, cycles are also subdivided into three or,
more frequently, four phases (seasons of the year, ages of man). The overall
division of the cyclic process, however, need not necessarily be symmetrical.
Thus, in a cycle composed of twelve units, such as the year (or the wheel of the
Zodiac), the ascending and descending phases can be taken either as 6 plus 6
(symmetrical division) or 8 plus 4 (asymmetrical division). The former is a more
geometrical, the latter a more empirical division. The year is usually represented
by the figure of an old man in a circle, with two or three outer rings containing
such items as: the names of the months, the cycle of work appropriate to each
month, the signs of the Zodiac and so on. Often the circle of the year is, in its turn,
enclosed in a square the corners of which are occupied by four figures personify ing the four seasons. The tapestry of the Creation, in Gerona cathedral, is a
famous example. Two interesting points in connexion with the annual cycle are:
(i) in Chinese tradition, the cycle is divided into two equal parts, corresponding
respectively to darkness/death, and light/life; (ii) there was a primitive belief that
every man undergoes a process of regeneration every year, from December to
June, symbolizing death and resurrection (51) (Plate XXXII).

Night is related to the passive principle, the feminine and the unconscious. Hesiod gave it the name of ‘mother of the gods’, for the Greeks believed
that night and darkness preceded the creation of all things (8). Hence, night—like
water—is expressive of fertility, potentiality and germination (17); for it is an
anticipatory state in that, though not yet day, it is the promise of daylight. Within
the tradition of symbology it has the same significance as death and the colour
To have a dream that takes place at night, represents some major setbacks and obstacles in achieving your goals. You are being faced with an issue that is not so clear cut. Perhaps, you should put the issues aside so you can clear your head and come back to it later. Alternatively, night may be synonymous with death, rebirth, reflection, and new beginnings.

The idea of the ‘crowd’ is symbolically superior to that of ‘multiplicity’, since it implies a new concept of the numerous as a totality, or of Oneness
as a fragmented whole. Thus, Jung’s interpretation of the multitude or crowd is
well judged; he asserts that, especially when moving or restless, it corresponds to
an analogous movement in the unconscious (31). Homer has a well-known simile
in which he likens a crowd of warriors in the agora (or in battle) to the ocean swell
(constituting another symbol of the unconscious).
To dream that you are in or part of a crowd, suggests that you need some space for yourself. You need solitude to reflect on a situation and recharge your energy.

For a man to dream that he is a girl means that he aspires to be an actor and play female parts.
