just don't use it

An old time traveller recieves a gift. On the label it says "To Me". Inside is an old mobile phone, a photo of her young self wearing her first ever dress, and a note which reads "Thank you for helping me realise who I am." She smiles. Her life really has been so bright.
The time traveller appeared at important parts of his life with help and advice. She was so cool and beautiful, and he wished he could be more like her. One day she unlocked his phone, via the fingerprint scanner. He realised who she was, and suddenly the future looked so bright.
I make music, I code websites (among other things) and I love my life.
