Let me first make a blanket statement: I really do love facebook. I love that it is such an easy way to keep in touch with all my faraway friends. I love how I can see friends’ pictures’ that I would never see otherwise. I love that I am back in touch with friends I haven’t talked to in ages. And, I love that pretty much my entire graduating class from high school is on facebook. I’m amazed when I find out where they’ve been in life or what they’ve been through. It’s been fun catching up.
So with all this reuniting of long-lost friendships comes a crazy phenomenon that I would never have imagined: I”m being dream-haunted.
I am not kidding you when I say that for the past few weeks or so, I have had dreams every night about people from my past. Don’t get me wrong…I adore my friends from high school, but dreaming about them every night is just a bit weird. I feel like I’ve been thrown back into the past as if no time has elapsed at all. Its been 17 years since I graduated high school, yet when I go into that REM stage, its like were just hanging out yesterday.
I’m sure Freud would have something to say about my crazy dreams of late, but I think its just an overload in my brain of my past colliding with my present… the person I was and the person I’ve become… the gelling together of two completely different stages of my life.
Anyone else out there being dream-haunted or am I the only one infected???
