Lately I've been cleaning out my room since I'm moving out. I keep all of my letters in a scrapbook, although some I've found recently in my drawers and window seats and will have to add in later. In one of my drawers, I found a letter addressed to me. It said: Do not open until October 14, 2007.
The letter was from someone I haven't talked to in a long time. Well, it's a bit later than 2007, but I decided to read it anyways.
The letter said:
I trust you not to open this letter before the written date. ;)
There are lots of things we can talk about now, in the future. How old are you, fifteen? By how? Do you still write books? Poems? Do you own a rat? Does "modeling" ring a bell?
Do you have a boyfriend, a crush? Do you still go to _______ (my high school)? These may be strange Q's, but by the time you read this 2 YEARS will have passed. You'll be in high school!
There are always new adventures around every corner!
The letter made me smile. It was apparently written in 2005, so I was thirteen years old at the time. It shook me up a little to go back to that time in my life. I was so different back then. Everything
was so different back then. I have regrets, sorrows, triumphs, and a new perspective. What's sad is the fact that I don't even remember the specific situation surrounding this letter.
Funny how so many things change as time passes.
Funny how everything
is about to change.
That is one reason why I love future letters - they are funny and kind of weird to read. I recently read a future letter to myself from 2005. I was all excited to read it because I thought it'd be all sentimental, but instead it was just my younger self telling my present self (very sternly, i might add) to behave!ReplyDelete
