Dear Diary | Dream Symbols

I found myself up until the wee hours of the morning because for some reason, I just could not lower these peepers. Except for maybe 40 minutes before I REALLY got sleepy ...and that's when it all happened. 
..A succession of dreams that, at some point, jolted me up out of my sleep - and of course made absolutely NO sense whatsoever when I tried to explain the events to a friend. 

So out of a need to not look lame - I'll keep the story to myself and we'll simply dissect the symbols. 
They're what's most important anyway. do know that right? 
Of Course they are. 

I may be a nut case but dream symbols are the reason I DIE to remember every detail. [dramatic]
I find it interesting, what my subconscious has to say.
Last Night's events were nothing short of ridiculous but when I searched the meaning of each symbol it all began to make sense. 

1. Computers 
Meaning: To see a computer in your dream, symbolizes technology, information, and modern life. New areas of opportunities are being opened to you. Alternatively, computers represent a lack of individuality and lack of emotions and feelings. Too often, you are just going along with the flow, without voicing your own opinions and views. You may also feel a depreciated sense of superiority.
To dream that your computer has a mind of its own, denotes anxiety about technology and loss of control. You are feeling overwhelmed and that you are at the mercy of another. To dream that a computer has a virus or has crashed, suggests that something in your life that is out of control. It may parallel something in your life that has come to a crashing end.

2. Vision
Meaning: To dream that your vision is obstructed, indicates that you are about to make an error in judgment. There is something that you are not seeing clearly.

3. Stairs
Meaning: To dream that you are walking up a flight of stairs, indicate that you are achieving a higher level of understanding. You are making progress into your spiritual, emotional or material journey. The dream is also analogous to material and thoughts that are coming to the surface.

4. Train
Meaning: To see a train in your dream, represents conformity. You are just going along with what everyone else is doing. Alternatively, a train means that you are very methodical. If you see a passenger train, then it relates to mental work. Dreaming of trains may also be a metaphor that you are "in training" for some event, job or goal. According to Freud, a train is analogous to the male penis.

5. Ledge
Meaning: To dream that you are standing on a ledge, indicates that you are feeling tense, anxious and/or excited. Consider what direction you are looking? Up? Down? Straight Ahead? The direction to which you are looking relates to your viewpoint, whether it be an optimistic one, pessimistic one or realistic one. On a more positive note, this dream may signify a sense of freedom and liberation. To dream that someone is standing on a ledge, denotes a sign of desperation and a cry for help.

6. Boots
Meaning: To see or dream that you are wearing boots, refers to the power in your movement and the boldness of your position. You are taking a firm stance. The dream may also be a metaphor that you are getting the boot. Are you getting kicked out somewhere?

7. Leap/Jump
Meaning: To dream that you are leaping over an object, indicates that you will eventually achieve your desires and goals after some effort and struggle. Alternatively, the dream may be a metaphor for "taking a leap" or taking a chance on a new relationship or situation. Try to step outside your comfort zone. Consider also the phrase "leap of faith". -- To dream that you are jumping, indicates that you need to take a risk and go for it. You will overcome your obstacles and find progress toward your goals. Consider the metaphors "jumping for joy" to mean thrill and excitement or "jumping the gun" to mean impatience or impulsiveness. The way you feel in the dream will provide additional significance and meaning to your dream. To dream that you fail to jump or are afraid to jump, indicates that you fear uncertainty. You do not like change.

I am marveled by how much these definitions apply. It's amazing.

Oh cool. Finally someone knows the answers... what does it mean when you keep ending up in middle-school hallways(any grade), school restrooms, boutiques, beautiful yet empty malls, and your old neighborhood?
