No Time Like the Present

Hey! Thanks for reading! Just a reminder that I wrote this some years ago, and may have much more complicated feelings about this topic than I did when I wrote it. Happy to elaborate, feel free to reach out to me! 😄


After playing Skies of Arcadia (probably my favorite JRPG of all time, with the only main character I can ever cosplay as), I took a liking to the Age of Exploration: a time where new lands could be explored with a good ship and a lot of gumption.

I started asking friends: "If you could go back to another time in history, what would it be?" The girl I liked said the 20's, she'd like to be a flapper girl, wear hats, that kind of thing. My favorite response:

Yeah... when you're black, going back in time isn't something you fantasize about often.

While I pass for white, being in technology and listening to music assisted by technology... I'm going to have to agree. I love 2011, and I love that I'll love 2031 even more.

Thanks for the read! Disagreed? Violent agreement!? Feel free to drop me a line at , or leave a comment below! I'd love to hear from you 😄
