Hey fellas, had a question about my dreams. When I was younger, I would dream about all sorts of things, with all sorts of perspectives, some happy, some scary, some sad. For the last couple of years, however, 90% of my dreams take place in:

1) Malls
2) Schools
3) Airports

Every once in a while, I'll have a dream with a mall-airport, or a school-mall, etc. I'm always me in these dreams, and I am generally much happier in these dreams than I am in real life. What's strange is that I have social anxiety, and malls really fuck with me, but in these dreams, everything is awesome. Why is this?

Malls- a reflection of one's view of capitalism, materialism, and society's boner for those concepts. You may be feeling overwhelmed by society's standards, or feel like a 'mannequin' of sorts, your own happiness tied to the perceptions of others
Schools- a reflection of one's own knowledge and experiences, held against the infinitely vast collections of others. You may be feeling trapped or confused, or simply craving to 'learn' from the experience of others without leaving your own protective space.
Airports- A reflection of exchange, usually of ideas. Context is especially important here- you may be feeling isolated, unable to communicate or 'spread your wings', or you may feel caught up in public affairs and unable to focus on yourself.

It sounds like, even though you are dealing with anxiety, you really want to reach out to people. But you are uncomfortable sharing your true self, instead taking on a sort of public persona.
Don't worry about other people's perceptions too much, FuckBuzz. You don't have to put on an act or assimilate to a group to form meaningful connections with people. I have social anxiety too, I know it is difficult to get past your fears and allow yourself to be vulnerable. You aren't the only one who feels that way, and you may be surprised how many people can relate to you if you open up to them a little. You may get hurt, or hurt others, but that is just a part of social interaction. That hurt comes from the disappointment of your own expectations, but ignoring or eliminating your own desires for companionship won't fix this, it will just give you a steady, mild kind of hurt, instead of the occasional deep cut.
Maybe you should talk to someone you haven't seen in a while. Or maybe you should try to find a new way to meet people near you, whether it is some kind of hobby or group that will allow you to socialize in a way that doesn't feel scripted. This is just my analysis of course, I don't have many details to go off so forgive me if I totally missed the mark. Either way, I hope you find a way to make thing as awesome as they seem in your dreams. Good luck Buzzman

Malls- a common target of mass terror attacks
Schools- a common target of mass terror attacks
Airports- a common target of mass terror attacks

It sounds like, you are a terrorist

Malls are just aesthetic as fuck. I dream about them all the time too. You'll probably love the Dead Mall series (guy tours "dead malls" which are

Are you me OP?
Those are my top three locations too, if you fit train stations in with airports. I wonder if this is common.

I dream bout all three of these places frequently. Also themes parks. They're always M.C. Escher esque and tall and convoluted like the inside of a skyscraper.

interesting... care to break it down for me? I always thought it was social anxiety showing up in my dreams, because I do have it (not cripplingly) in my waking life.

Places like Malls, Schools, Airports, and Theme Parks are sort of like iconic settings in the brain for someplace *public*. As such, our subconscious interpretation of 'the public' is reflected in our interpretations of the environment. When you describe the interior as being very convoluted in appearance, this is probably similar to how you feel about social structure. It is over-elaborate and leaves you feeling lost.

Sounds accurate. I've been having party dreams lately and they used to be like that too, except at some point I would realize there were killers on the prowl in the party and I'd try to escape. Recently though, my party dreams involve having sexual encounters with women. Not happening irl of course lol

My dreams are almost always set in a weird amalgamation of the college I went to including the dorm I stayed at, the basement and outside of my parent's house and some big two lane highway leading into some tunnels. There's also some strange two story house i've never been to and disheveled campsite where it's always raining.

Been messing around with game engines lately, might try to reconstruct my dream location into a playable map.

my attempt at analysis-
colleges can represent social influences or information and data exchange. childhood homes and locations may represent memory or your reflections of the past. improvised scenery can be a little more complicated, a highway pass can be a metaphorical crossroads, or a divergence of fate. a random home can, in many ways, be considered a representative of your cognitive state, as it is something that you have 'constructed', albeit intangibly. My best guess for the campsite is that it may represent loss, isolation, or any other kinds of feelings that may be bared or exposed to the elements, so to speak.

Ever so often, I have these dreams that I am in college but I am failing a bunch of classes and it's almost time for graduation. It always feels so real . Maybe cause I did actually fail college irl and returned years later and finished. My brain probably still has anxiety over failing though,

Yeah, I fucked up my go at college but not so bad that I can't go back. Makes sense.
Probably / definitely got some anxiety about moving into my new place as well.

I forgot the part about how the basement has doors and hallways that i'm just then discovering even though i've been there before.

oh, you're talking about the Haunt I think. It's like a 'totem' location, lots of people visualize it differently but it is similar to a ruin. It represents the corridors of the mind, and alludes to things that have been forgotten or abandoned. The deeper you go into the basement, the more repressed thoughts and feelings you will uncover, since they represent the 'foundation' of this structure. At least, hypothetically. I've only talked to a few people about this concept, so any other details on the house be interesting. Every time I go there I always hear someone else in the house but I can never find them. There's also a cellar hatch in the coat closet that I use to go down into the basement sometimes, but it's super messy and unfinished with holes in the floor and I start finding lots of bones if I keep going down
