if you travelled back in time five years ago with all your current memories, what would you do differently?

    Well... definitely paying more attention in school. Wasted quite some years focusing on dumb hobbies instead of studying.

          oh wow I'd be in my last year of high school. for one i would be way more confident and just all around in a better mind state. I'd know exactly what I want to do for college so i wouldn't have to take so much time off to figure it all out. I'd try to stop one of my close friends from going down the path shes taken. I wouldn't date anyone and I'd be a more pleasant person with everyone

            i would probably stand up for myself in 7th and 8th grade, and then i'd try to not get myself suspended in 10th grade but instead try and suggest to my mom before the beginning of 9th grade to go to an alternative school, bc now my suspension is on my school record. sigh.

            i'd also try to get myself not involved with the wrong crowd in the beginning of high school.

            Honestly I don't even know. A lot has changed in my life in five years, but I'll give this a try...
            • Tell myself to cut my hair
            • Also tell myself to get more involved with PC since it's not as intimidating as it looks
            • And finally, tell myself not to date the girl I did because of how clingy she was to me and about her emotional problems
            • Tell my mother to check her health out (she passed away last year from a cancer diagnosis fyi)
            • Let my brother know that he does marry his girlfriend

            There's probably a lot more too.

            I probably would have tried a lot harder to make sure my emotional health didn't go as south as it did. Although that happened even with me knowing that things are never as bad as I'm making them out to be and they will get better, so I'm not sure how much that would have helped.

            Also, I would have tried harder to cultivate certain things and talents. I can still do that now, but it would be easier if I'd also done that back then instead of pretty much giving up on things. :/

            I'd probably handle several friendships/relationships differently and expend a lot of time and effort into preparing myself for the imminent long term illness.

            stay very far away from GP

            I don't think I live life with that many regrets really (the sunk cost fallacy they teach us in economics really does give you a different outlook on things) but I'd probably just tell myself to stop thinking about things which have no impact in the long-run, and stop worrying so much about what others think as much.

            also I'd stay like, really far away from GP

                Um, five years leads me to... Third year of secondary school/ninth grade? There's not much I would change about these years. I was already accepting my sexuality, my social life was good, and there was not much that really went wrong. There are two things that specifically come into my mind, however.

                First, I would never go on our school trip to Spain. Instead, I would've gone to Italy, as it would've saved me a major fight with my friend, arsehole teachers and an overall bad trip. I only have bitter memories from that trip - wanting to redo my Spain experience is exactly why I'm going next year.

                Second, I would not follow the rest of the crowd and bully that girl. At that moment it truly felt like I was doing the right thing by not interacting with her just because others were telling me she didn't like me or whatever. I should've not gone along with their bullying and instead interacted more with the girl herself on non-hostile terms. When I realized what we were doing was essentially bullying, it was already too late for her...

                After she was gone for a year and returned, I made sure to get on good terms with her - which I did, but I never got to apologize for the way I treated her all those years before. At first the others were friendly with her as well, but once it came out that no one essentially cared for her or still disliked her, I felt even worse about what we did. I decide to let whatever we had build die down once I left secondary and she still had one year left. To me it felt better that I, as someone who was part of the muk she went through, did not interact with her anymore. Ironically I've been bullied as well, and I have no desire to ever interact with that ass.

                I hope she's in a much better place now. I won't ever have her forgiveness (she said so), but I am in no way desiring that. All of this is the only big regret of these last five years.

                One additional thing would be to push furhter to interact with the partying crowd, because I really wish I would be invited to parties now orz. Then there's also that I wish I could do something against me having to follow economics in the last three years of secondary school, but there was not much I could really do because my parents were forcing this choice on me. To put in perspective how much I suffered because of economics: it gave me trichotillomania.
