victoriarch: crescent moon against a daytime-blue sky (dreams)
I dreamed that my friend Liz was driving me home. Liz is a very good driver in real life, but in my dream she was rubbing against cars as we pulled out of the parking lot, and we had several near-collisions as we merged onto the highway. I was.. very scared.

At some point, I insisted that I drive instead, and our roles were switched; I was now sitting in the drivers seat navigating the car.

It's worth mentioning that I don't have my driver's license yet irl, and I've only ever practiced driving ONCE with my dad. So when I suddenly had the steering wheel in my hands, I had no idea how to keep this car in the center of our lane. Within seconds, I veered off the side of the road, just as we were nearing a lil bridge with another street passing under it. Liz screamed, a random man sitting in the back of our car screamed, I was like 'so this is how I'm going to die, as our car crashed straight down towards the road underneath the bridge.

BUT, we were lucky. There happened to be no cars passing under the bridge at the exact moment we crashed. The cars that were approaching safely slowed to halt. Granted, irl we probably still would have died from the crash, but in my dream all three of us emerged from the car unscathed. And went to the sidewalk on the side of the road.

Then we realized that the drivers probably didn't appreciate us leaving our wrecked car in the middle of the street where they can't pass, so Liz & the stranger & I worked together to pick up the car and place it on the sidewalk. The traffic then proceeded.

'We have to get out of here,' I said. We had to get out from under this tunnel and find the police & do whatever you do when you're in a car accident. ?

"Wait,' said the stranger adult man (who'd mysteriously appeared in our car while I was driving), 'We have to leave a gift here so that the police go easy on us.'

'What gift can we leave? What do you mean by that?' I asked.

I looked over and saw Liz making a giant flower chain out of weeds that were growing alongside the road outside the tunnel.

She said, 'I'm making a flower crown for the tunnel.'

We joined in and helped her drape the incredible long flower crown from the tunnel rafters. Then we left.


Dream Meaning

A few days ago, I spent the day with Liz, and she drove me around in her car. That's why I dreamed about her, specifically, driving me home in my dream.

A few days ago, I also tried driving with my dad for the first time. I don't yet understand how much control I have over the car's tires via the steering wheel, so it was very difficult to stay in the center of my lane.

When Liz and I were out together, I talked to her about my first time driving with my dad. So mind had easy access to this story/topic when I fell asleep last night.

This dream, more or less, represents my desire to have control over my life. It shows that I feel like I don't know what I'm doing, and that I need/want help from older and more experienced people who DO know what they're doing. This is probably specifically related to me choosing the art college I want to go to next year.

I"m not sure what the flowers represent. We were making the flower chain so that the police would be less angry at us when they found out how badly I'd fucked up driving Liz's car. It could represent how I feel like my parents aren't giving me & my sisters the space we need to figure life out & make mistakes. They have a specific narrative in their head about hOW kids are supposed to pick their college, then go to college, then get a job, etc, etc ,etc, and they get mad at my sisters and I whenever we suggest ''''''untraditional''''''''''' routes (anything that doesn't adhere to their preconceived narratives, even if it IS common route). It just makes me feel like I can't mistakes and that I have to have myself figured out before the fact instead of after the fact. Anyways.


TLDR: I dreamed I thought I could drive better than my friend, but I ended up crashing her car. My dream represents my desire to control my life, coupled with the knowledge that I don't actually know what I'm doing.
