Writer's Block: Back to the Future

Given the choice of time travel, would you go back in time or forward?
So I know I answered this question already, but now I have an even better idea than anything I mentioned in that entry.

I've got way too many creative vortexes to ever hope of getting rid of them and thus finally becoming able to focus on anything at all for more than 20 seconds, right? Well, wouldn't it be cool if, just before my second year of college starts, if I'm not done with my creative vortexes by then (which will probably be the case), I could time-travel back and forth between different points in the summer to get the rest done?

Here's an approximation of how it'd work: I go through my first day of classes that year as normal, do any homework I have, then go back in time to the first night of the summer and start working on creative vortexes some more (going forwards in time to the next night just before morning as needed) until I'm actually tired, then go forwards in time to where I left off in college and go to bed.

Then I'd just repeat this process until I run out of days of summer to repeat, then I'd start going back in time again to replace each of my solo time-travelling all-nighters (in order, one by one) with team efforts by two future Matts. If I don't finish that way, I'll go back again to add another Matt to the team, and so on until I finally finish. (It'd be a bit like the game Cursor × 10.) Once I finish, I'd go back and continue college as normal (except with much more ability to focus).

How neat would that be?!

That would be cool. :)

Yep. And probably the only way I'll ever become able to focus, at this rate... :(

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
