settings. I believe that my dreams had to do with me wanting to please other people and make sure others are happy before myself. My dreams had very odd locations and had parts of the dream that were mundane, others parts not so much. In my first dream that I had, it was about being on a college campus and being “attacked” by someone that I knew. When I woke up the next morning I didn’t feel like I was safe around them. I remember that I was really scared in the dream because I didn’t reciprocate that feelings of the man that grabbed me. The manifest content was that someone grabbed me and I didn’t want them to touch me but the latent content is that I put myself in harms way to please other people. I didn’t really think about the latent content of that dream until now, while writing this paper but it makes sense. I put my feeling last and I always want to help people. I would do anything to make the people closest to me happy. My second dream has to do with me being a surrogate for a girl that I barely even know and she is already pregnant in real life. In this dream I think that Freud’s Dream Theory is complete garbage because I definitely don’t want to be pregnant now or ever. This is one of the craziest dreams I have ever had, I have an idea of why I had a dream about being pregnant but this was just weird. I remember that I was so sad when Emily did not get to feel the baby kick for the first time but everyone else got to. She was so sad and these were her children and not mine. I wanted to please her by carrying her kids but in the end I still upset her. This all goes back to me wanting

to help others all the time, like even though I was carrying her kids that apparently still wasn’t enough for me to make her happy. In my third dream I was at Chick Fil A and other people would not let me order food and like I thought workers at Chick Fil A were supposed to be nice and say “My Pleasure”. Obviously it is not your pleasure if you won’t let me order food, that I’m going to pay for. At first I didn’t think this dream had anything to do with the others like what does going to Chick Fil A have to do with anything, it doesn’t make sense. Then I kept thinking about it and I realized that I was just thinking about the manifest content and not the latent content. The counter worker is my subconscious not letting me take care of myself. The food represents the fact that I am already doing okay and I’m fine so I don’t need anything else. I already have somethings under control and so I don’t need any more self care. My subconscious wants me to worry about others more than myself. In my fourth, and final dream, I am hanging out with people on a college campus and I’m in a frat. I must be thinking about college a lot because that is a common theme in my first dream and this dream. I found it hard to remember a lot of details out of this dream but I distinctly remember being on a plane. When I looked up the meaning of a plane in a dream it said that if the plane is taking off that a new plan, project, relationship or opportunity is about to “take off”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
