You can drill in a screw sure, but you can also go through a drill which is much like a practice session and you may also have to drill information into your head to make it stick.
A drill is a word which has many different meanings and each of these meanings is attached to a definition that is separate from what you know. If you have a dream about a drill it could mean that you are dreaming about the type of drill that is used to further push screws into something or it could mean that you are having a dream about the other kind of drill, a predetermined practice role of something that is important to you. This is the dream definition of the first kind of drill.
If you have a dream about a drill that is used to screw in screws, this dream is meant to illustrate the fact that you need to get your life together. You feel like your life is totally falling apart and this dream is there to tell you that you need to pull it all together. You need metaphorical screws to help keep your life in place and make sure that you do not go to pieces again; this is what the drill is for. You need to make sure that you don’t go all over the place or you could be a danger to yourself or others, but mostly yourself. You need to be more responsible and make sure that you get enough work done that you are being more responsible and worth your weight in what you are doing.
If you have a dream in which you are participating in the other kind of drill it means that you feel like your life has become some kind of routine. The things that you do are too familiar to you and you are getting bored with the level of familiarity that you have with yourself and with the things that you do. You’re simply tired of always doing the same thing all the time and you want to experience something new. The only way to do this is if you go out and take care of this on your own. This is where you need to step in and make sure that what you’re doing is okay and that you’re still finding pleasure out of it while not falling into a boring routine still. If you have a dream in which you are participating in a drill it means you need to have a change of lifestyle soon because you are getting bored with it all.
To dream that you are trying to drill some kind of information in your head means that you are forgetting something of great importance to you. Whether or not you can actually recall trying to remember information earlier, the fact is, there is something you are forgetting and it has been bothering you. Try to think of a way to get around this or try to remember once you’re awake, otherwise your dreams will continue being plagued.
