If I were to meet my Past-Self.. by Demachic If I were to meet my Past-Self.. by Demachic
I think my meeting with past me would go like...

PastMe: "Oh my GOD YOU DYED YOUR HAIR BLONDE YESS"

Me: "I KNOW IT'S SO GREAT KID, LIFES GON' BE GOOD FOR YOU"

PastMe: "YOU GOT TALL TOO OMG, THIS IS THE BEST"

Me: "YEPP, YOU ARE FESTIVELY PLUMP NOW, BUT YOUR WEIGHT WILL BE EVENLY DISTRIBUTED IN A COUPLE YEARS KIDDO DON'T WORRY - THEN YOU'LL BE A SEXI MUZAFACKER".

PastMe: "WOAH GREAT! How's school?? Am I a genius??"

Me: "....... D's AREN'T A BAD THING YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T HAVE LOOKS AND BRAINS KID - ONE OR THE OTHER DON'T BE GREEDY JESUS"

---

End scene. :P

---

If you met your past self, how do you think they'd feel getting to know you? :)


Hope you like lads!! :la: :heart:

Past me would probably be happy.

Happy because of how I'll tell her that the abuse ends and we move away and we have friends and people are kind to us and life is better. Happy because of how we're writing things like we always wanted and we play video games like we've always wanted and how tall we've gotten and how we're finally going to stand up to father.

But sad, too, because of how everyone we were ever friends with at the old town has forgotten us. Sad because of how father doesn't love real us. Sad because of how the bullies' voices still sit in the back of our head, screaming insults. Sad because of how we're still not one of the socially accepted.

And finally scared. Scared because I have become what I feared most at past me's age. Scared because of the evil we've seen in ourself. Scared because we know the day will come when answers are demanded and the only other option is death.

Maha, my past self~
She'd probably be dissappointed, since i was such a pure person back then xd
Sex, drug, alcohol, smoking, all made me go EW. WHY'D YOU DO THAT??
And she'd probably never expected that i would calm down after all~
I guess i changed pretty much. I became pretty mean and spoiled i think.

But, she'd probably be thrilled that i got myself a drawing tablet~!
That i actually pulled through with drawing, even though everybody back then found it strange,
and told me i'd be ruining my future if i put too much time and effort in it.
She'd probably also be relieved that i found people who are just as silly as past me is~
Since they were hard to find back then. Maybe she would be more at ease with herself then~

Once again, very inspiring piece of art! Lovely!

all like 'how do you manage to not get lazy in dressing up and doing your makeup and hair like before?'
i was such a tomboy back then ahaha

Pm: Well all be darn, your gorgeous!
Me: Don't let it go to your heard. You always knew natural was the best.
Pm: Yea I always managed to rub it off by the end of the day anyhow. Soo...Are you still with Mr. T**?? And did you ever make it through college?
Me: Took me a while, but I finally managed to get my gen. eds. done. As for Mr. T, he's at home. We've got dinner plans later and he still makes my entire body melt when he kisses me;) No, I don't think the gitty feelings will ever go away, so stop worrying.
Pm: Glad to hear you both are still together. So what's your life filled with now? What do you spend your time doing?
Me: I read quite a bit and I practically own my own library on a net book:) Finally able to put a season park pass to use because I hike and fish plenty. Started to play violin again. You were right, we talk too much and "feeling" is the way to being happy for us.
Pm: What do you mean?
Me: You're missing something aren't you? Feel a little empty?
Pm: Sometimes...
Me: Because you're...We're creative souls. You NEED to express yourself through music, through art, through connection beyond words. Get out there and start learning to listen better. Take it all in and relish in the release that simple things in life give you. You never become the next Buddha because you're too sassy to, but I always knew I'd be on the right path. That I'd learn what makes me happy.
Pm: I do know that, don't I..:)

PM: So I didn't keep my hair cut short and spiky?
Me: Nope. You grew it out so you could have a pony-tail again. Then, when you tried to cut it and get a mohawk your mom said you looked great with long hair. So you decided to keep it.
PM: You're not skinny. Am I still insecure about my weight?
Me: Yeah, but you learn to use your assets.
PM: Like my eyes and my boobs?
Me: Yeah those are all you got going for you kid.
PM: You don't have scars.
Me: Ignore those asshole kids. They're not worth hurting yourself over. You'll realize that in a little while, when you're holding broken glass to your wrist. Trust me. It gets better. Keep swingin', kid.
PM: You're stronger than I'll ever be.
Me: That doesn't even make sense, idiot. I am you. Now get away from me. You're also antisocial and spend hours on your computer - the only thing I suggest is a seat pillow so you don't get back cramps as much. Have fun being weird, weirdo!

Past me: You're a HAIRSTYLIST?! I never saw that one coming. I guess that's ok. You're good at drawing! I can't wait to be as good!
Me: Hahahaha! Whatever, hair is totally cool! You can get waaaay better than me if you start practicing and drawing from life sooner! Read Burne Hogarth and start painting!!!!
Past me: I'm glad you're pretty! And you have a boyfriend!
Me: Thanks. And don't worry about finding a boyfriend! You're super smart and totally badass. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.

PastMe: "WHOOOOA! That'll help me be more tomboy-ish!'

Me: "But Dad will pester you about practicing, and you'll feel like you don't deserve this talent, and then Dad and you will be stubborn-asses and argue about it! Then you'll force your horribly lazy ass to practice!"

PastMe: Ohpoo..

Me: "You'll also have crushes on the weirdest people. And also eh...they're not worth it. Unless you're ready to get married."

PastMe: "Ew."

Me: "Yep. You'll also dress like THIS!" *gestures to wannabe "edgy" clothing*

PastMe: "WOAH THAT'S AWESOME! PORPLE JEANS FTW!"

Me: "Yes. Yes it is. And so am I. And you."

PastMe: "Ya, you're not too bad. :P"

Me: "Psst. There's gonna be a new Harvest Moon in 2009. Sunshine Islands. There's gonna be sum smexy cowboyness.

God, I love this poem. It's funny and thought-provoking all at once. It really put a smile on my face.

Well, until I got to thinking about the deeper questions involved. Then I actually started wondering what my past-self would think of me. I can't rewind the clock too far back, 'cause I'm still just eighteen, but I have to wonder what exactly lil' five-year-old or ten-year-old me would think? Ha. I'm pretty sure that I'm nobody's hero, especially my own. Hope you don't mind me sharin', by the way. You really got me thinking, and I couldn't resist.

Past Me: What happened to all of your hair?! The two feet that I spent eight years growing is gone! o:
Me: Don't worry; it went to a good cause. I used it for a practical joke to get back at the assholes who threw my backpack in the trash.
Past Me: Why did they throw your backpack in the trash? And what's an "asshole"?
Me: I got harassed a lot. And "assholes" are your future classmates. You'll meet them in high school.
Past Me: ...Why did they bully you?
Me: They didn't like me. Don't worry if that doesn't make sense to you - it still doesn't make any sense to me, and I've had like ten years to deal with it.
Past Me: Oh. Okay! Is pink still your favorite color?
Me: Eww. Girly. >.< Didn't anyone tell ya? Silver, green, and blue are what's in style right now.
Past Me: Do you still write? And can you tell me what happens in the last Harry Potter book?
Me: Congrats, kiddo. You're gonna grow up and publish a book and become a published author. And silly chica, I can't tell you that. That would ruin the surprise.
Past Me: Aww. :c And cool. Are you still gonna grow up and be a teacher?
Me: Por supuesto.
Past Me: What's that mean?
Me: Whoops, I forgot. You haven't learned it yet. You're gonna graduate as one of the most fluent Spanish-speakers in your class.
Past Me: Whoo! :la:
Me: But high school is still going to suck.
Past Me: :c
Past Me: By the way, a word of advice: When Emeric invites you to go see Transformers: Dark of the Moon, don't complain. Just go with him. It will change your life and make things totally awesome.
Past Me: Who's Emeric?
Me: You'll meet him one day.
Past Me: Awesome! Hey, when I get older, am I still going to be proud of myself?
Me: ...I wish I had an answer for ya, kid. I wish really wish I did.


I guess some things do and don't change, for better and worse. It just goes to show that we can't predict the future, because looking back, I'd never have been able to imagine the way my life has shaped me. It just goes to show that everyone was 20/20 hindsight, and are absolutely blind when it comes to foresight. But yep. I think that's what the abridged conversation between current!me and past!me would look like. Only a lot more bittersweet.
