    Dear highschool self,

    1. TAKE THOSE SPANISH CLASSES. 2. Study harder. 3. Go to as many parties as possible. 4. Your social standing doesn't matter after high school. 5. Your braces will pay off, and one day men will love your glasses. 6. THAT was not worth crying over. 7. Torin Davis DOES actually...

    I'd fix a thing or two in my life,

    but that's whatever. The fun part is what comes after that. I'd return to the present, collect the spoils, grab a couple friends, then off we would go. We could call ourselves the Chrononauts. We'd visit all the really tight past places and all the really tight future places...

    Time is a complex thing,

    it is both beautiful and terrible. To travel through time is too see the wonders of the unviverse and also the sadness that everything dies. However reality as we know it exists in 10 dimensions (to the extent of human thinking) and time makes up the forth but the forth...

    I guess it might be fun to go visit times

    people talk about. New technologies after the war. The 60's and all that. If you could travel to the future, I wonder if when you came back to the present,you'd live your life differently knowing what's to come?

    If I could time travel backwards,

    I would go back about 3 years, find myself, kill my past self and take my past self's place. Assuming doing this wouldn't blow up the Universe or cause a black hole ripping space and time, I would do everything right and avoid all of the mistakes I've made in the last 3 years...

    I often find myself thinking like what

    if I could time travel and change somethings and correct myself and mistakes before they happened... But you know how they say messing with time and altering the past is kinda like the butterfly effect and shouldn't be messed with and then I think damn but if I was to do that...

    If Time Could Be Cheated :)

    Assuming it would be possible to go back to a time when I did not exist. I would want to be able to see the world and how much it has changed. I would want to explore as far back as I could. History has always fascinated me, trying to imagine how things used to be done and how...

    I Want To See The Beginning Of Time

    I would travel to the very origins of human evolution because I want to be able to see what early humans looked like so badly. What were they like? Did they crack jokes? I have no many unanswered questions from history that I want answers to. If only I could time travel I could...

    Pictures And Memories Can Be Hell.

    Pictures are often bitter sweet. You can capture a smiling face, a favorite memory, a moment in time that is now immortal as long as the celluloid still holds integrity. They haunt me. I often wonder why is there such a thing as the past and why am I perpetually looking to it for...
