2.1. Can you interpret this dream for me?

As shown by Dream researcher Jon Tolaas, day-memory is often
incorporated into the dream. Many times negative, ambivalent or
neutral events are incorporated. It is difficult to answer why mostly
negative events are incorporated, it may be that the negative events
make stronger impressions on us. Or that not many positive events
occur during the day. It may be that the brain is working on these
negative events so that it may handle it better next time. The most
qualified person to interpret your dream is yourself, you know all the
details from the dream, you remember what you did the previous day and
you know what your problems are. But dream interpretation isn't always
that easy. If you fail to interpret your dream, it is nice to know
that there are many people on the internet that you can turn to. A
good place to start is posting your dream to alt.dreams. But sit down
and think about your dream before doing so, try to find the meaning
and try to think about what you have done the last few days. Keep in
mind that the language of dreams are metaphors. Sharing dreams with
others are a great way of paying attention to your dreams. Writing
them down, reading those of others and discussing them will increase
your dream recall. Be sure to include factors from your life that
might be relevant to your dream. This may help on the interpretation.
