I've been thinking baout this a lot, and this is pretty late to still be posting about it (haha) but; I'm pretty sure the feeling I got when the teacher hugged me had something to do with the people I've been spending time around, as well as the decisions I've been making. I've gotten that feeling a couple of times in the waking world since then, and both times I decided to takes 'John from Lowell's advice and used that feeling to guide me in life... And I've made a lot of better decisions.
I was going to cancel a trip that I'm going on, because of my social anxiety, but thanks to his advice (thank you, by the by) I decided not to cancel. Because of that, I'm working on repairing a damaged friendship (we'll be rooming together on the trip), I made a NEW friend who I'll be sitting with on the way to and from (which is great because I actually have a crush on her >_>)... And I really need to get away from home, since things got pretty stressful RIGHT after I made the decision to still go.
(Meaning the same day, only minutes afterwards.)
I really made the right chocie with that, which I wouldn't have done if I hadn't had that dream, posted this question and gotten advice on it.
I am happy to know that those insights were helpful.
