Waiting Room

Meet your future self! Ever wondered what you’ll look like when you’re older? Many of us have regrets. That spiteful thing we shouldn’t have said, that relative we should have spoken to more, that drink we shouldn’t have drunk, that person we should have married, that person we shouldn’t have slept with, those guitar lessons we should have taken. Imagine if you could send a message back to your younger self, advising them to take or desist from a particular course of action. Would your life be better?
