english is my first languge but isnt my strongest subject i believe tho that

"if i was" is past tense (all ready happened)
"if i am" is current tense (happening now)

anything else u want me to clear up?

Mystic is right.

We use "was" for the past tense and "am" for the present continuous tense.

Mystic, do you know how to use "was" for another type of sentences?
