Srsly tho if I met my 11 year old self I would show them a bunch of art that I’ve done recently that I’m proud of.
And make 11 year old unconfident me so happy.
I’d also pass by 11 year old me’s school, find all my bullies, and yell in their faces. Because if they dared tell 11-year old me that art high school wouldn’t accept her and that her art sucks and that she wouldn’t get anywhere, I’d slam their faces on the floor.
Basically it’s kind of a good thing time travel isn’t a thing because I’d seriously injure at LEAST 10 people.
But also a bad thing because lil 11 year old me would still get bullied.
Man if I could go back in time I’d at LEAST tell her not to be afraid of calling over our uncle and our big brother to scare the shit out of our bullies.
Because I remember both of them offering to come over and intimidate them. But I was too afraid that that’d just get me MORE bullied.
Now I realize that I SHOULD have called them over. Because both my uncle and big brother are a force to be reckoned with.
For one thing, my uncle is TERRIFYING when he’s angry, and those bullies wouldn’t dare mess with me again if he even yelled at them ONCE.
And my big bro, back in his day, my old school was one of the schools he went to. He got expelled. And was known as ( literaly translated ) Sashe the beater because he’d beat up anyone that messed with him.
So that would’ve terrified them as well. And they wouldn’t have dared bully me again, unless they wanted me to call my family again.
Man, I wish 11 year old me wasn’t so shy and afraid. And bullied.
