Question If time could go back...

... what would you do differently?

...

If given the time, I would learn martial arts, and start learning Japanese since freshman year. I should've followed my dream, doing what I wanted instead of listening to others' opinions.

I'd try to infinitely revert it. There are too many possibilities--I'd like to experience them all, that is, if I can keep my past memories. If not, I don't see the point in doing it...same mind would lead to same consequences and a horrible infinite loop.

I second Tenken. I regret the fact that I didn't take Jap in what is equivalent to the last year of junior high. I didn't realize that I could take both French and Japanese at the same time until it was too late. I was sitting in the theatre of our high school during the school's annual awards night thing a few years ago, and saw a girl win the junior language award for excellence in Japanese, French, and Spanish. Then a light popped into my head as I realized something...

I would confess my feelings to my friend instead of keeping them to myself. Even if he rejected me, at least the outcome would have been less painful than what ultimately happened.

Also, the last time I talked to two of my friends before they died, I would have been much more direct about my feelings and told them how much I loved them before they signed off. The hardest thing to live with now is never really knowing if they realized that, because that was the last time I ever talked to them. I know it probably wouldn't change anything in the long run, but... it would give me a sense of closure that I don't have right now.

Oh... That would be so awesome.

I'd go back to 2000 and put focus into music. Of course that'd put me in sixth grade when I started band. I would play the saxophone instead of the trumpet and then I would pick up the bassoon at the first possible chance and I'd practice both like crazy so I wouldn't have turned out the way I am right now.

I would also almost completely ignore the internet. In fact I'd probably just get on it to check Facebook and watch the anime that I know that I loved.. Like One Piece. I'd keep up with it once the time came.

I also would never go out with my best friend. =/

I probably would've started watching anime sooner. I also would've been nicer to my little brother. I probably wouldn't care about school as much. I would have trouble not telling people I knew what was going to happen.

I would have visited my grandfather the month before he died. I regret not being by his side because I had always been his favorite when I was about 5 years old. I never got a chance to see him for two years and just when I had my chance...it was too late.

Woudn't change anything. Sacrificing one timeline for another is a stupid and selfish thing to do. The possible results can be nice for a moment, but in the long run you could trigger things that lead to really bad things. So yeah, i guess i would just watch as things happen exactly as i remember them. And as soon as some1 starts to act funny, i would take care of it really fast...

There are a lot of things I wish I could "do over," but one thing just really sticks out for me right now.

Instead of calling in sick, I would have gone to work on January 14, 2009, even though I could barely move or think and was running a 102 degree fever.

If I could go back... I should of work harder in high school for better grades so I would have scholarships instead of having to take out student loans... Oh well...

I'm 13, so i'm still making life but... I would definitely go back and time to 5th grade, and not let one of my 'friends' into my life. And, that I decided to learn Violin instead of Guitar. I would also shape it to were I would be brave enough to speak my opinion over some things.

I don't mean to pry, but why? That's a pretty legitimate excuse to call in.

Eh, if I could go back? Errr...nothing really. My life has its ups and downs, I'm glad I get to experience all of it, no regrets.

Hmm going back in time

It's one thing having to live with certain experiences

....it's another thing being able to stop them but still fail at doing so

every problem fixed will take you into the unknown again
then you'll be opening up a different can of worms you'd have as much say in as you had in your 'previous past'

I'm sure I could try and change something but so far everything has worked out well for me. One summer when I was wrongfully terminated ended up helping me in the long run despite the rough time I went through right after.

There is one thing I would definitely do and that is to drive slower and more carefully.

At the moment I wish I could go back to Christmas Eve, stop being such a pussy and ask the girl I like to go out with me regardless of the outcome.

But other than that I'd only want to go back and spend my time with my father before he died.

I would teach younger me the stuff I know now so I could be a genius (well even more of one ) in the future oh and I would also have him build muscle and learn football.

Also I would teach him kick boxing.
