A Conversation With My 15 Year Old Self

15 year old me: Whoa, are

25 year old me: Yep. I somehow aquired a time machine and decided to pay you a visit.

15: That's so cool! How old are you? 34, 35?

25: ...25.

15: Yikes. Looks like it's been some hard living for you the last decade.

25: Shut up. Do you have any questions about the future?

15: Hell yes! How is being an architect?

25: Um, I'm sort of not one.

15: What? But that's what I want to do!

25: Yes, you do. But after awhile, you sort of just won't want to be one anymore.

15 That doesn't make sense!

25: Please stop yelling at me. I'm nursing a bit of a hangover.

15: What do you mean? I don't drink.

25: No you don't. Stay golden, wonder-child.

15: Have you at least designed your own house yet?

25: I'm sort of renting still. The economy is going to take a nosedive soon. Lay off me, I've got a lot on my plate.

15: Whatever. So am I going to start doing better with girls soon?

25: I wouldn't hold your breath.

15: Well what about you? How are you doing with the ladies?

25: Better than you!

15: Like that's real hard! This has been so depressing so far. Why did you come here?

25: Because it is always important to remember where you came from.

15: Fair enough. Wait, you're from the future. What advice do you have for me?

25: Spend as much time as possible with family and friends. Enjoy every moment of organized sports in high school, because let's face it, we aren't Big 10 material. Don't be afraid to take chances every once in awhile. Oh, and never, ever sell insurance.

15: That all makes sense. Wait, though. Now that I know what's going to happen, I can just change it and the future won't be the one you have lived.

25: I'm afraid I can't let you do that.

15: Why not?

25: For one, I like my life. For two, it could end up just like "The Butterfly Effect" and...

15: What's that?

25: Oh yeah, it's a movie that doesn't exist yet. It's where Ashton Kutcher...never mind. The point is, it's impossible to know how much you could change by knowing the future when no one else does.

15: Yeah, well how do you plan on stopping me.

25: I have the brain erase zapper from the "Men in Black" movies.

15: Movies, as in more than one? Besides, that doesn't exist in real life.

25: This is my blog. Whatever I want to exist, does.
