There are times in my life where I find myself plague with so much thoughts that happened loong loong time ago. I dunno how will I lose hold of those thoughts prolly those things are ignited by my interest too.Most of the time I feel like I want those thingies to come back again and I want to rearrange or perhaps make the most out of it. It almost wears me out to think that everything will just passed us by, Its hard to prepare myself and accept everything.. but then again there are some reasons why they went and just pass us by. So far, nothing is really permanent except change, I regret that I don't have the power to stop thingies from moving away, I regret I have no way to make 'em stay :( if you a specific experience I wish to hear your stories...

I would be lying if I said that it wasn't a thought that I considered a time or two in the past. Of course, it was not that much more than a consideration. I think that in the end, what is done is done and there are valuable lessons to be learned. If I had somehow been able to turn back the hands of time, to reverse those lessons, than the point would be lost. Time is a funny thing. It is not something that is assured that things will be better if I had reversed the hands of time and had gone backwards. In reality, things might in fact be much, much worse than it turned out being. Which is why in a nutshell that I have not ever considered going back in time, much more than a slight flicker of a thought.

i have had my experiences of life. whatever, good bad i have learnt a lot out of them. i would like to look forward with that experience and dont want to look back. I think life has made me more matured and i cherish living my life the way i did. however, i do not want to relive those moments.

yes i wished i had a time machine. if i had, i would go back to my younger times, because it was then that i enjoy everything, with all its simplicity and without a little problems. just a lollipop would make my day complete. i want to go back to the time when i was young, free and simple.

Yes, because i sometimes mess up things and would like to go back in time maybe to fix it or make it better for my future like learn when i was in school. Sometimes i also think that going back in time is actually can come true because of some said the Einstein said some time ago then he is still living. Most of my friends says i'm crazy to think about that is even possible. But hey, nothing is impossible in this world right ? the things that you called impossible something turn out to be invented some time in the future. But most things that make me think about going back in future is like what i said above which i would change what i have done in the past. So, what i do now i do whatever i want and accept the consequences so i will never regret what i did in the future.

OOH YES!! In fact, who wouldn't? Now that I know better I want to go back to those times when doors of opportunity in life open so easily and so often for me. Career opportunities, chances of acquiring assets to solidify my family life and things of that sort. But then, what is the point lingering on that? Life is still going on for me and everyone else, I am now working hard as hell realizing my heart's desires one day at a time. ;) One day I'm going to be where I want to be. Peace.

Yes, I do wish sometimes that I have the power to go back to time.When I watched the series "Heroes" and saw the power of Hiro Nakamura, It envied me. How I wished I have that power like him.I always wanted to go back to the time when I lost the one that I like due to some of my fears. I really regret some actions of mine.However, it gave me a lesson. It helped me to be more mature and strong.

i am a history fanatic and yes! i would love to go back in time to see how ordinary people lived during extraordinary times like during the Great Depression or World War One. i am more interested in the 20th century than any other time.

Well, I think everyone wants to could back to moment of their life that they didn't the right thing. We're all human and not every time we do what we want and supposed to do or maybe then we wanted to do it and after that we regret wanting and doing it. Like everyone else I regret of things in my past that I didn't do the thing I want. There's a lot of things that can come up in my mind of situation that I wanted to change. There's a lot of things I wanted to say, but I didn't. I would tell you one thing that will probably make you laugh, but I was very angry in the morning when I remember what an opportunity I've missed hah. I was at a party for the New Year. I drink a lot, but I rarely got drunk. However at this night I get drunk a lot. I hooked up with one chick and I spend a big part of the night with her. At point of the night, she left. I was really drunk then and I was sitting in one bed alone, when two gorgeous drunk chicks come to me and the one got his close off. The other one said - Do you want a threesome ? The weird thing is that I was very inadequate so I didn't do nothing, just staring in one point and didn't move my side out of it. That's how I missed the night of my life, haha. I consider that as one of the funny situations that I blow up. I can tell you a lot of serious things I do, or more exactly what I didn't do, but I decided to tell you this story hah. Wish you all the best and live for the moment, that's how you wont need a time machine to fix the things you didn't do.

For doing something in my life in another way, no. My failures, my wrong decisions made me who I am, too, like I learnt from my mistakes. Time-travelling on the other hand, heck yeah! I want to go back to visit the ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, all decades of the 20th century, the Middle Ages... loads.

I sometimes think about the things that happened in the past and there are some of those things that I would have done different today, but I can't change those things today and I try to learn from the mistakes and accept the things that happened. In my country we can't change the grade point average that we get in high school. We can take another high school exam, but it is always the first exam that counts. Only the people with the highest grade point averages are able to study psychology at university, and my grade point average wasn't good enough for that. I sometimes wish that I had studied harder while I was in high school so that I would have been able to study psychology which is my dream.

We can't change the past and we don't have much control over the future. I sometimes wish that I had lived in an earlier century like early 1900's maybe because I think life was more simple then. There may have been more hardships to overcome but life was uncomplicated without modern conveniences there are today.

If only i could turn back time I opted not to experience those unpleasant events that had happen in my life before.If given a chance I wish that i can correct it at least but what can I do it had happen already.Yes it is true that we are bound with the realities of the situation wherein we have to experience it per see not just merely letting it go if we wish it.Not all the time that it conforms to whatever we wanted so especially if it's the real thing that would be striking you.Although it is our fervent desire to experience only the pleasurable stuffs and avoiding those unpleasant one but it is an inevitable combat that everyone has to conquer.

yes i thought it also. Wish i could turn back time. I have my regrets in life that make things hard for me also to move on but unfortunately we can't. All we could ever do is change and do things for the coming so we will not regret many things in life. Past is past all we ever do is correct what is being damage.
