The idea of travelling through time has always fascinated me. When i was younger, i would sit for hours, watching all of the Doctor Who episodes on TV. I would religiously watch the “Back to the Future” movies countless times; to the point of addiction.
Why am i writing about this? It isn’t that i have travelled through time ( but we do, through our sleep) but i want to discuss what it would be like to do so.
There are only a few moments in my life where i would want to travel to. One time would be when i was around 7-8 years old. We were moving house, and i had packed up my belongings in a box. But, when we arrived at the new house, i couldn’t find my Sonic figure that was given to me by my friend. I was very upset by this, and spent days trying to find out what happened to it. So, i would go into the body of myself at the time, and would find out what happened to the coolest figure i ever owned.
The next place i would go to would be anytime in Year 8 to Year 9. I didn’t have many friends at the time, and would spend most of my time online; watching YouTube channels like Skydoesminecraft and Smosh. I would go to this time, because i would move to the back of the bus, to get to know the people in my year. The more time i spend with them, the closer we would get. Some of those people are still dear friends of mine 5 years later, but it would be great if i could have spent more time with them, instead of being so selfish.
Moving on, i would next go to early 2015, so i could spend some quality time with my Grandma before she died. Already, i have written a post about her, but i would want to go back, to appreciate her and be kinder to her about the situation she was in. Spending time with loved ones is very important, i didn’t realise it until too late.
Finally, i would jump to the end of Year 12, before my mocks. I would study the hell out of my books to make sure i get top grades. This would come in handy later.
There is the metaphor that people choose not to redo their life, because it made them who they are, but this is not the case for everyone. I would love to go back into the body of my younger self, relive some of the years. There is so much i would improve. But, would it change who i am, let’s find out!
