    I was that girl who sat in the back corner of

    the classroom hoping someone would notice me. I was that girl who never spoke up. I was that girl who never ate at lunch time because she was too embarrassed to be seen eating alone. I was that girl who spent her free time locked up in her room hiding from the world. I was that...

    If I could go back in time,

    I would go back to the first day of 7th grade and would tell myself not to throw away my future to skip school. I would tell myself that the only one who will suffer from it is me. Basically stopping myself from f*cking my future up royally is what I would do. It's the one thing...

    Of Course. ...

    Of course. I am such a history geek - it was my major. I would love to venture back to early Victorian America, King Henry VIII's scary days, and even just to the 60s to see what life was like.

    I've actually had to write a paper on this

    topic. Well, it started with I would go back in time if I could and what would I change or do over. I would actually make it where I wouldn't be born into the family that I was. I would see what being in a different family is like where parents are involved and I mean literally...

    I've don't too many mistakes

    and some I just want to fix badly! Why can life be easy on us? why do we have to live in love and fear? I once missed the opportunity to get a boyfriend, but I was too late and didn't make the move in time! Can life just get any better?

    The Theory of Branching Realities (dimension Travelling Voyeurism)

    I used to fantasize about going back in time—ideally with all the knowledge that I have now—to try and change the outcome of my (non-)relationship with A. I'm not entirely sure how that could happen (never mind the time travel part) and maybe it would be like...

    I would shut up. Listen to you.

    Then I could have understood. I would do the exact opposite of everything I did. With the exception of working at hugs and going out with you. I would show you all I feel. I would have slowed down and taken the time to enjoy you and all of who you are. I would have told you my...

    I wish you could just pluck memories out of

    I wish I could go back in time, back when our love was new. So I could carefully remind myself, of all the things I’ll do for you. All the sacrifices I will make, proving my love is true. All the things that I’ll give up, not seeing you coerced me to. Kept close to you under...

    I have always been one to not succeed in school,

    not because I'm dumb, but because the teachers never trust me or don't understand me. I wish I could go back to change things and show them that I am a better person than that. That they are the fools
