#16. If I were given just one day to relive I would most definitely choose…
I had so many answers to this, and I’ve rewritten this post a few times. First off, I wasn’t sure if the question was saying that I only had just the one day to relive, and once midnight hit of that day it would be over, or if it was like “Groundhog Day”, where I would relive it over and over and over again, because there’s a different answer to both of them. So to play it safe, I answered both.
For the Groundhog Day scenario, I picked an arbitrary day from the summer right after grade 8 and right before grade 9. Any day really, no date comes to mind. One of those days where there was less responsibility, less to worry about, and a lot more opportunities. Maybe one of the days where I hung out with Saber and Aaron at the park, drinking a slushy from Macs Milk. Or one of the days where Jeryn and I watched movies, and wrote, and acted like morons. Or one of the days where Sara, Gem and I would play video games, or go swimming. I would make the most of each day, trying to accomplish more than what I did – maybe learn some skills that I would like to learn. overall, that was a more relaxing time for me, and though I love life now, I miss the simpler times some days.
As for the first scenario, I would go back to the day I got fired from the Sub Shop. When my boss called me to ask if I could stop in, I had a feeling in my stomach that something was wrong. If I could relive that day, I would march up to her and quit before she could fire me. I would tell her how awful a boss she is, and that I deserved to be treated better. I don’t think this would really change my life all that much, but its something I wish I could go back and fix.
