you just woke up from a coma, your entire life from age 16 has been a dream

Demand they put me back under.

Ok but for real if that happened, I'd actually have opportunities to fix some of my problems in life so yea, that would be nice.

That's what I was going to say, but if it was all just a dream, what is there to fix?

Unless your dream was actually a look into the future. If that's the case, will you remember it all? I usually don't remember my dreams all too well.

Tbh I would love that. 16 was when I decided I wanted to do a Music Production degree and I graduated with an AA when I was 18. Realized I actually hate music production so I went back to community college for Computer Engineering transfer. Here I am at 24 still a year away from finishing up my BS and I've been in college for 10 years total. If I could have known all that, I could have finished my bachelor's in computer science at 20 and probably be a couple years into a career already. This is all assuming that you mean I would wake up at 16 and not have been in a coma for that entire actual length of time. If not, and I wake up at 24 as a recent high school grad, fuck it, I'll be a career vagabond.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Am I still 16? If so, I'd do a lot more fun shit and be nicer.

Did the dream pass like real time and I'm still 27? It's like nothing's changed then because I have no accomplishments either way

Probably go into an existential crisis and depression.

On the other hand, I'd have a shit-ton of new songs I could write, because I'd just rip-off the works of fictional characters in my imagination.

Realistically I'd do Biochem instead of Chemistry degree, start working on my art much sooner, would make necessary changes to my appearance early instead of late, and not waste time on some people that I spent too much time on.

pick the best paying and stable/secure job type I think I can manage and then go to uni specifically for that. pretty much save myself a few years of vaguely wanting to do something cool but not knowing what and eventually just wishing I went for a biggest paycheck in the first place. not like I couldn't do that now but it's a bit more effort. prob drop music tech a-level for physics instead too.

also do something to not be a forever-alone weirdo in my early/mid twenties, didn't do anywhere near enough banging around then. probably not sign up to ultimate guitar forums at the very least, since this I got all my social energy out on this place back then and lost interest in socialising with real world people for a good while (it's understandable to me when people bail from this site when they start hanging out a lot with real world people)

Tough one.

In some ways there are things I look back on that I think I could've handled better, and I definitely could've put more effort in both at school and at university...

But then that being said, I'm very happy with my life right now and I've got a great job, so maybe I wouldn't want to change anything?

I'd probably quit smoking and start eating healthily a lot earlier than I did though.

Bang all the right chicks this time, go pro MLG because I'll have the maps to every FPS memorized upon release date. Put Vegas odds up in 2009 that Trump wins the 2016 election.

You still do

I believe in you

Would suck but since i'm 16 for another month so it wouldn't be the worst thing.


Although if you are saying that it started as soon as I turned 16 that would suck since I was really depressed at that time, meaning the coma would probably have been self induced.
#25
I don't think I had much power at 16. Wasn't a great time. I guess I would try to do what I'm doing now, but earlier.

Well if I am still 16 but armed with the knowledge from my faux life experience I'd use that to change a lot of things i have done wrong, but if I am 47 then that would suck!

The hospital bill alone would be enough reason to want to go back into the coma!

I liked everything up to sixteen.

How bout everything after was a coma and I wake up and I'm still sixteen.

Then I'd do a bunch of shit different and maybe have a life rn instead of being 23 with no degree and vague ideas of writing a book/music or something.
#28
I would party and chill and joke around in highschool way more knowing not much is going to change if I give less fucks, instead of being an honor roll geek and being in clubs and shit. I would for sure practice piano and guitar more and start lifting weights more seriously. I don't have too many regrets about my younger years tbh

Start writing it, whatever it is.

If it sucks, you can always chuck it and start over, but you have to start before anything else.

Yeah. That's what people have been saying. I think I'm almost at the point where I take their advice haha

Thanks btw

Would change some small dumb decisions that have caused me some wasted time and unnecessary stress, but I'd still have chosen the same path, even though that was only 11 years ago

Quite honestly 16 year old me would be in awe of 26 year old me
But we little know until tried how much of the uncontrollable there is in us, urging across glaciers and torrents, and up dangerous heights, let the judgment forbid as it may.

I would kind of love to go back & redo my life from high school on because knowing what I know now I think it would be cool to have really applied myself & gotten involved in stuff instead of spending a bunch of time sulking in my bedroom & browsing UG (lol) -- I could have become a better me -- but also being a sullen teenager who listened to dumb punk music led to me meeting my best friends & forming a band & ultimately shaped my interests & pursuits & who I am today, so if I went back & erased all that I might end up being somebody I do not want to be -- maybe I am still someone I do not want to be -- maybe I would like to go back to a time where I could live in blissful naivety through youth culture -- drive past the Stop 'n Shop with the radio on -- instead of being in a weird limbo where I cannot embrace normative adulthood but also feel increasingly estranged from the kids -- what is one to do??

This is the thing I would change.

I didn't know what I wanted to do out of high school because I'm an artsy fartsy type, so I just didn't do anything.

Now I'm going to turn 23 in a week and I'm a freshman in college. All my friends are about to graduate lol.

I feel like I wasted four years. I could have played out more. I could have worked a bunch of jobs. Written more music. Anything.

Oh well. A lot of my friends who are graduating have told me they have no idea if they even like the field that they got their degree in, which is what I was trying to avoid, but still.

kick myself and wonder why the fuck I couldn't have dreamed way better than this.

I'd start getting shorter haircuts and brush my teeth/floss more. Had to get two fillings yesterday, it wasn't fun.
