Assuming you could use it just once (for a round trip), would go back in time to try to change something or would you travel to the future?

If every science fiction movie and that awesome Simpsons Halloween episode with the time travel toaster has taught me anything, trying to go back in time to change things, or fix things, often has disasterous consequences. Like if you go back and stop the Titanic from sinking, then one of the people who lives, turns out to have a kid who ends up killing your Mom. It only doesn't happen, because the Titanic sunk, you know. Not to mention the past is not that awesome. The technology was different, people's attitudes were different, how people were treated is different. Granted this is like a day, sure, but there is always that thing of, what if you get stuck back there. Not that I know what the future holds, but I do know what the past was like, and often it wasn't good... so long story even longer, the future for sure.1

Future all the way, and as FAR in the future as possible, and I am assuming Planet Earth would still be around and intact by then and if it's not gonna be intact then perhaps on another planet, space station, or somewhere in a galaxy so far away beyond measurable by light years, somewhere really deep and far out in outer space or whatever you want to call it. And even if being so far into the future that meant humans either no longer exist or have been transformed, transcended, upgraded, evolved, enhanced, etc., etc. to the point that they technically aren't the same old regular normal fragile and vulnerable humans that always fight among themselves any more over petty little things, redundant things, material things, etc. The singularity is what I would want to see and confirm even if that meant going to 9016 A. D. or even 10,080 A. D.
Ideally I'd want to time travel to a future world and reality that is a completely peaceful world, an organized world, NO MORE suffering or the possibility of death, greed, hate, violence, prejudice, injustices, hardships, illnesses, idiocy, and pretty much everything relevant to all the bad things in existence. But I just know and think that it can't ever happen while everyone and everything is just mere mortals with so many vulnerabilities and limitations and restrictions. To go to a place where humans if any are left are completely evolved and transformed BEYOND human where all of those bad things had entirely utterly become redundant.2
