A Reverse Time Travel Story

This Tag/idea came to me from Sweta, it is originally written by Emily Barton from telcommuter talk.
1. Depending on your age, go back 10, 15, 20, or even more years.
2. Tell us how many years back you have travelled and why.
3. Pretend you have met yourself during that era, and tell us where you are.
4. You only have one "date" with this former self.
5. Answer these questions.

Okay, as we start, what year is it and how old are you?

Hey I am too young to go back 10 years and still be comprehensible.. ha ha kidding. Ok so I am ermm how much is 21 minus 10 yeah.. 11 yrs old studying in std 5 in a co-ed school in Goa. And its (ermm wait 2011-10=2000) yeah its 2000.

1.Would your younger self (YYS, from here) recognize you when you first meet?
No way! She will go :O and say ‘who are you ??!’ I mean she poor child has short cropped hair and a huge figure and is hard to tell from a short fat guy (I really shouldn’t be making fun of myself you know).

2. Would YYS be surprised to discover what you are doing job wise?  
No she would not be astounded exactly to know that at the age of 21 I am still jobless officially. But of course the fact that I have made a mini-career in writing and also having my own team of writers, would surprise her. *raises collar of the collar-less top

3. What piece of fashion advice would you give YYS?
 Errr, I don’t think I will ever qualify at any age to give fashion advice to anyone. Still I’d ask her not to grow her hair, not until she’s is 18. Save some of them falling strands! And hit the road you fatso!

4. What do you think YYS is most going to want to know?
 Will she top in the finals or not. Yeah I used to be a studious gal.. * sighs!

5. How would you answer YYS's question? I would tell her that topping in an exam isn’t important as long as you are able to retain the knowledge you have gained, ‘coz that’s the whole point of education: gaining knowledge not a rank.(Gosh I sound like Mom!)

6. What would probably be the best thing to tell YYS?
Whatever you do learn to keep alive that ‘ I’m the best’ attitude and the courage to speak up whatever’s on your mind.

7. What is something that you probably wouldn't tell YYS?
That love hurts… because if she doesn’t fall in love she won’t know how to rise up again.

8. What do you think will most surprise YYS about you?
My looks, it’ll be like north pole meets south pole. Or should I say tomato meets lady’s finger.. hey wait, tomato is costlier ain’t it?

9. What do you think will least surprise YYS?
That I still rhyme words together & build sentences around them and call that stuff a poem !

10. At this point in your life, would YYS like to run into "you" from the future?
Well, no. going by the fact that the MYS was a hyper scaredy cat I wouldn’t try pulling this off. She would probably get a massive heart attack & there will be no ‘me’ any more!






 So there you go.My reverse time travel is over.And what about you?

P.S: I pass the tag on to my blogger friends Tanay,Suraj, XYZ(I still don't know your real name) ,Sugandha , Sadiyaand any other blogger who happens to read this and likes the idea of a trip down to their younger self!

#6 is what I always wish I could have told my younger self. People could have accomplished so much more in life by doing that. It's kinda sad that nobody could have told our younger selves that.
