Dreamscape: Students and teachers reveal their craziest dreams

Annie Zhang and Laasya Koduru


Chemistry teacher Mrs. Onodera describes her dream — she is running around in a disorderly frenzy trying to locate her runaway son. While doing so, she runs into a colleague who wants to watch the game together. Upon agreement, Onodera promptly sits down to watch but then needed to relocate her son once more. In retrospect, Onodera perceives that the dreams she can vividly recollect are recurring, as part of one’s subconsciousness. She believes that these dreams i correlate to having a “conversation with certain individuals” she knows. Interestingly enough, none of the people in her dreams are “faceless.”


In her dream, sophomore Rebecca Halcin vividly recalls how her music teacher tried to “kill” all 100 students enrolled in her class. Halcin describes that her teacher yearned for the death of her unabiding students because she wanted them to work as a cohesive team of singers. The students and Halcin escaped by scrambling and clambering up a tree branch in a forest situated in a ship on a beach. Every time Halcin’s music teacher attempted to ascend the trees, Halcin and the party of students would discreetly hasten down the trees and scuttle to a secluded area. Halcin narrates that ultimately she and the students jumped off the ship as an escape route and take the teacher in captivity. The outcome? A stolen credit heinously stolen from the choir teacher and unspeakably used.



Freshman Ariane Chen recounts a particular dream where she jumped off a second story school balcony, structured similarly to  MVHS, and into a “field” in her friend’s car, who also happened to be driving it. Both Chen and her friend were going on a road trip and went into a gas station. There, Chen remembers seeing “sketchy” people doing drugs, and she and her friend drove away.





Sophomore Reva Lalwani recollects a spontaneous dream, dating back to when she was in seventh grade. A portion of Lalwani’s choir group vacationed to Tokyo for a brief summer program. Opting out of performing “choral” activities, the group rode unicorns. As every member selected their respective unicorn to ride, Lalwani’s friend claimed the unicorn Lalwani wanted, ensuing in a quarrel. To settle the dispute, Lalwani’s teacher alternatively brought Lalwani to a “sketchy tavern,” instantly transporting from Tokyo to a desert. Drawing out a miniature wooden figurine of a “horse-elephant,” Lalwani’s teacher prompted her to sit on it. As Lalwani mounted the figurine, it grew huge and whizzed Lalwani away. As the motorized horse traveled a 100 miles per hour, Lalwani rode back to Tokyo and conclusively fell off a red tourist bridgegate on the horse.


At roughly five or six years old, sophomore Meha Gupta endured “recurring” nightmares. Gupta describes how she and her friends were residing in the upstairs bedroom, while her parents were downstairs. Suddenly, a lion with a vibrant red luxurious mane bursted through the front door and mounted the stairway; it rampaged into the bedroom, barbarically charging at Gupta.
