I've got this wish stuck in my head, to make my mind of today travel back to 11-12 year old me, and redo all my life, one day at a time, from that point on.
If you had such a chance, in what part of your life you'd rather begin, and what would you do? keep in mind some limitations, being born again would probably erase your memories for example.
pic unrelated, sry.
>be me, 11
>have a childhood friend who is "dating" me (in a cute childish sense of the word)
>know that in 8 years, she will be a pathetic drug addict roastie
>Euthanise her while she is still wonderful
>there is this big construction site not very far from her school
>agree to meet her nearby to go for a date/walk
>bash her on the head with a rock and push her into some concrete that is yet to harden
>distract the nearby workers with an adult magazine I stole from daddy
>adults are such pigs, kekekeke
>tell her friends she never arrived in the first place
continue to the next victim?
Start playing a videogame I am playing semi-professional nowadays way earlier - and if I keep my skill become and set myself up as the best player (since I'm ahead of the learning curve I could stay there indefinitely as I knew what and who to look out for).
This would make me good money and little fame - I wouldn't do crazy crap aside from that I think.
Graduate with better grades and get into Accounting earlier maybe.
I've thought about this a lot too. Assuming I get to keep all of my current memories, I'd like to go back to when I was about 5 or 6, which was when I had the most amount of free time. I'd git gud at art earlier and hopefully get an online following easier so I'd have some way to get income. I'd also stop myself from getting fat. I'm average now, but all of that dieting was really bothersome, so I'd rather just stay skinny to begin with. I guess I'd also do all of my schoolwork in advance so I have more extended periods of free time.
Other than that, there's not much else I'd change. Maybe I'd also hog all of the good usernames online and on mmos before they got taken too.
Back to my first vacation in Florida so I could save my relationship before I fuck it up with years of sexting girls and slowly eroding my ex's self-confidence. From there I could repair like 99% of my biggest fuck-ups.
she probably would have still left me anyway eventually
please tell me, try a year later.
That crossed my mind too, but does that mean you think your life could get even worse? Care to tell me what you'd try that would go wrong?
That's sort of an issue, I'm not entirely sure how far back it was. Time blurs for me because I've repressed a lot of things, but I'd say probably about seven years to be safe. I think I was fifteen, and I'm 21 now.
As I typed this I felt this weird pang of hope that maybe OP had the ability to send me back in time and that's why you asked for a specific age.
I really am pathetic.
I have the same thought, but, I'd use that knowledge to make the right decisions that lead up to my current situation. Begin practicing on my current hobbies, especially programming, a lot sooner than I have,
>>distract the nearby workers with an adult magazine I stole from daddy
This is the gayest method I've ever read from an imaginary wannabe serial killer.
I would go back to when I was 5-6 before entering school and fucking up various social interactions. Also I would like to learn multiple languages and some instruments starting around that age, since it's far easier for childeren under 12. I generally would avoid becoming as useless as I am now.
The problem with being reborn is that your baby brain would not keep your current personality and memories. So there are only two ways it could go, you'd either do everything the same and be the same person, or you'd have a different life, but have no control over how you'd change from the person you're now without memories from the first life.
Probably go back and actually tell my psychiatrist that I liked to dress in women's clothes and just the truth in general. I don't want to be a degenerate and have thoughts about transitioning at this age and rather kill it when I'm young.
Back in time,
>about 5 or six with current memories
>"predict" future events
>become revered as a saint
>suddenly stop predicting events at 10 or so
>blame sudden loss of ability on any other religous party I wish and order their sect eliminated
Ayyy lmao where am I going with this?
>being born again would probably erase your memories for example
Wouldn't that mean you'd just repeat the exact same shit all over again if you're unaware you're reliving your life?
All that aside, 10-12 or so seems like a good enough time to go back but I could deal with even earlier, maybe 8? My life started to really go to shit around middle school but the sooner I could start preparing the better.
Doing everything "right" and becoming more popular and keeping my life on track and dating my qt crush would all be really nice, but there's something much more important that's always haunted me.
My best in high school was hit by a car driven by some crazy bitch while walking home from one of his own family member's funeral/viewing. Because of that event, I would know roughly when it would occur and I might be able to prevent it and save his life. That alone would make it worth it, as all I'd really want is my friend back.
>Wouldn't that mean you'd just repeat the exact same shit all over again if you're unaware you're reliving your life?
Yes, that's why the idea is to send your mind back to an younger self and redo your life, but not too young since your brain wouldn't be able keep the memories and personality you need. Being literally born again would mean sending that mind to a fetus, and that just wouldn't work at all.
And damn, sorry about your friend. I kinda wish I could send all of you anons back in time now. Yeah, even the child killer earlier.
