The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Dream weirdness

I dream about museums - tell me it's not just me?! The other night I dreamt I was in the Victoria and Albert Museum (which it wasn't, more like the Palace of Versailles - that's dreams for you). After beating a giant scorpian to death with a silver ladle I discovered my ideal man (his identity? no clue!) standing at the end of a gallery. Just as I was running towards him a gigantic oil tanker smashed into the side of the building, squishing visitors and display cases beneath it and then...

...I woke up. Weird.

According to the Dream Moods Dictionary dreams about museums can be interpreted thus:

To see a museum in your dream, indicates that your non-traditional path to success will make you unique and stand out from the rest. Alternatively, the museum may represent a history of yourself and your past. There are many things you can learn from your past and your family's past. Consider what you have gained from these experiences and apply them to your current circumstances.

To dream that you are in a museum, gives you the opportunity for you to review and reflect on the things you value in life.

Hmmmmm - interesting.
