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... :(

I'm depressed. Because the world is ending and there has not been ANY proof that things will ever get better. I'm unable to think about anything except the fact that the world is ending, no matter how hard I try

I hate, hate, hate, HATE the term "social distancing". And being reminded of the coronavirus in any other way.

That's my entire personality now. And it will be until our world is back to normal.

Please read this entry before you comment on ANY entry in my journal about the coronavirus: https://matt1993.livejournal.com/373852.html

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you still have to wear them.

    I thought I told you that I DO wear a mask whenever I am required to or am told to. Why are you acting like I don't?…

    Looking back at the Spanish Flu pandemic, it obviously wasn't like that forever. I don't know if people had problems with being able to adjust.

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you…

    well before the pandemic, youre supposed to wash your hands before you eat, and after youve been to the toilet. Or if youve got something on your hands. Thats all.

    With the pandemic, its an add on…

    Even before this pandemic I've tried to wash my hands whenever I needed to - but I've never been sure if I'm doing so well enough or often enough. :(

    but this is now our new normal.

    As I said to arcadia30 above, I'm tired of hearing "new normal" because it implies that it will be like this forever and/or that I'm a bad person for being unable to…
