If you had a time machine...

...what point in your life would you go back to and why?

I'll say: about a year and a half ago, when everything was pretty good (as it is now!), just because I'd like to see how making different choices and taking more risks would have made things different... or just to re-live that time since it was a pretty good part of my life! Happy

I'd go back to college, drop Economics, and take drama instead. I think getting in with the arty crowd early would have helped a lot.

More experimentally, I' like to go back to primary school, and take the speaking part that was offered to me in teh school play. I think it would have helped my confidence early on!

I'd write a really long letter to myself and go back to when I was 11 and leave it and hopefully I'd make more informed choices. Though if I did that then I wouldn't need to leave a letter to myself - ah the paradoxes of time travel=)

I would go back to either the last year of my A-Levels, I think I would convince myself to go to a different Uni and do a different degree?

Or back to my GCSE's final year and pick different A-Levels options.

I just wish I'd have studied something more creative... art or design or something Happy

I would go and visit myself in my middle school days. I got picked on a lot and was miserable. I would have told myself to be happy and ignore those meanies because the ugly-duckling stage doesn't last forever.

Aw Tainted Towey it's hard to ignore what people say so that's not something that could have been easily changed. I tried not to let my bullies phase me, it never really upset me but then I was never severly bullied. Besides when they went to far I punched one guy on the nose and poured a bottle of coca cola on the other so I guess that showed them not to mess with me.

Lolly-Hahaha. I wish I would have had the strength to stand up for myself sooner. But, being bullied really made me stronger in the long run. In high school I had an apple thrown at me by a group of older boys. Thankfully by this time I wasn't afraid to go and confront them. Lets just say they never messed with me again. ^_^

I would go only three years back,when I made the stupidest decision of my life!I broke up with Joci for a hole year.
He says (and I saw it too) that it was the most miserable year of his life... and mine too.There are days when I can still feel the scars that one year left.
So I would go back and fix this to be like it never happened.

If i had a time machine, i would go back in time to see Nirvana Live. lol I've wished that forever. Id have cherished it & talked about it my whole life.

But if i had to go back in time to change my life ...I'd go back to High School and stop being so shy. And be as cool and confident as i am now. I think then i would have made more friends and kept some of them. ...and i would of had some boyfriends. XD lol (I'd tell my crush i loved him too. Tongue)

Theres so much in my life i wish i could go back and change tho. Most of my life up to this point has been a big horrible waste.
