I have a recurring dream in which I'm in a giant mall, trying to find my way out. I've dreamt about the place so often and in such detail that much of it is known to me.

It's not about the stores in the mall. I occasionally go into one, usually a restaurant or a bar. I've worked at several places in the mall, and sometime I dream about working there. Sometimes a whole entire dream will consist of working at a particular job.

Yes, it's as incredibly boring as it sounds. I've dreamt about loading trucks, unloading trucks, welding, driving machinery, flipping burgers, serving food, stacking boxes, dealing with customers, and so on.

The moment I find my way out of the mall is when I wake up.

Sometimes there is some sort of security protocol for getting out of the mall, which I'm able to skip by flying away.

In the dream there are people I recognise, but few of the people I meet in the dream are real. Most of the people I do recognise are dead, or else are young versions of people who are now much older.

In checking on-line I've found that dreaming about being in an endless mall is common. My mall isn't endless, but finding my way out is always frustrating. Also common are dreams of malls having many levels. Mine only have two open levels at the most.

The mall continues out of doors, and is covered by a giant glass dome. Through one exit is a university. A fair distance away, on the edge of the mall, there are apartment-condos, and in the dream I live in one of these.

As much as I hate the mall, what's outside is much worse.

Wow that's really interesting. I have never dreamed about a place more than just a few times. I never gave much thought to the "blog" sections of litdotorg. I think I have been doing myself a disservice by not reading something that wasn't on the front page. I just had a very weird dream myself.
