I Was Back In School (School Dream)
i have often had dreams about being back in HS. for some reason i never really say anything i just retake the classes they give. i think about how odd it is since i got my GED but i end up taking the classes again anyways. i have even said to myself "oh well i'll have a HS diploma and a GED" "NO BIGGY"
this time it was different though. this time i was more awake in a sense. like i was aware that i didn't belong there. my mind had more common sense in this dream then in other similar dreams of me being back at school.

last night i dreamt i was back in HS again. i was confused but calm. i told the guy at the desk (teacher) that all though i didn't graduate HS i had my GED already. i got it a while ago and for some reason they always bring me back here i told him this with a smile, i wasn't upset at all. he shook his head yes whilst smiling back at me and let me go.

i once read about how dreaming of being back at school meant that you were making the same mistakes over and over again, that you weren't learning from your mistakes.
since this time the dream was different i think it means that i almost failed at a mistake i've repeated several times but i finally learned my lesson:)...i think

You're right in that we learn from our mistakes. High school could be a play on words for "Higher" school. Being more "awake" (aware) and having more "common sense" indicates you are right in your interpretation. The fun part is in determining what the lesson was.

Being more awake indicates being more conscious. Our whole life experience is like a school because we are learning all the time.

High school represents a higher level of functioning that you are working towards.

You are correct in believing that the dream changing shows that you are making progress.

The school theme will probably show up in your dreams again when you are working on another of life's lessons.
