dc.description.abstract Dreams have played a significant role in the lives of civilizations throughout history. Those who found some value in the information contained in dreams have asked the question, IIWhat do dreams mean?" The use of dream interpretation has been traced back as far as the second millennium BCE in The Epic of Gilgamesh, and the Bible even features a dream interpreter, Joseph. In the first century, Lucretius provided a different perspective on how dreams should be utilized. Dreams and the interpretation of them found psychological grounding with Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung in the early 1900s. People are still fascinated with the meaning of dreams; this can be seen in the exorbitant number of books and web pages about dream interpretation. For this thesis, I recorded every dream I had over the course of the spring 2013 semester. After interpreting one dream a week according to modern techniques, I have found that my theory of dream interpretation does not mesh with what the books and web pages I referenced would like me to believe. Also, having chosen the field of accounting for my future career, I sought to display what dreams live in the sleeping mind of an accountant.
