When Should You Travel in Time?

You Should Travel to the Distant Past


You are a student of history and past events. And you'd love to see them all in person, right as they're happening. You have imagined what it would be like to live a historical life, and time travel would give you the chance to find out.

You wouldn't want to go to one fixed place in history, you'd like to see all of it. There's so much you'd want to witness.
And you'd do just that - sit back and watch. You wouldn't want to accidentally alter the course of events.

You are a deep and thoughtful person. You wouldn't want to be rushed in the process of time travel. One of the things that appeals to you most about time travel is spending as much time as you'd like doing it, and not missing what's going on at home. 


  1. I should travel to the near past:

    You have a deep nostalgia for the world that you grew up in, and you would love to go back to those times every so often.
    You'd like to experience a little more of the past. There are things from earlier in your life that you deeply miss.

    You wouldn't need to see it all if you were a time traveler. You'd be happy to chill in a few points of recent history.
    You'd just like to take in the time of your childhood or early years again. You want to bask in what it felt like back then.

    Of all the types, you are the one least likely to need time travel. Your memory is pretty outstanding already.
    Going back in time would confirm that a lot of your memories are real. And it would give you rich new ones to play with.

  2. I'm the same, too.

    I have no urge to time travel, to be in the future -- unless the world gets more peaceful.

  3. Okay, I'm confused now. Are y'all the same as Kathy (Bermudaonion) or the same as Cathy (Kittling...)???

  4. I'm the same as Bermudaonion Kathy. (Gosh, we have a lot of Kathys/Cathys here. Is this a fluke as a statistical average?

    I'm really a Kathleen, but have been called Kathy all my life, except occasionally by a parent or doctor's office staff. Always wanted to be Kate or Katy but that never happened.

    1. I've often wondered if we're of roughly the same age, since my 7th grade class had 35 students and 7 of us were named Cathy. (In my case, Cathy isn't short for anything.) Seems there were a few years there where Cathy was the flavor name of the month!

  5. When I was younger, there were a lot of K(C)athys in my school. Years ago, I knew a Kathi who changed her name to Kate as an adult.

    When I write emails, sometimes I use Kat or Kath or even "K," and it's because I'm tired not out of a preference, although being Kat is okay at this point.

    1. For years I really really REALLY wanted to change my name, but the name I wanted to go by-- my middle name-- I couldn't, because that's the name my mother was called. The women in my family had this thing about hating their first names and being called by their middle names. Since Mom and I shared the same middle name, it would've been too confusing.

      Then for a short spell, Kate sounded pretty good. But I haven't been surrounded by my fellow members of Herd K/Cathy for decades. The name still doesn't seem to be a good "fit" for me, but I'm used to it.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
