Dear Future Me

Dear future me,


By the time you read this, you will be 23. You will have a Bachelor’s degree in whatever you are going to do in life. You’ll have a high school diploma. You will get through high school, which seems like quite a scary place to me right now. I’m still in 8th grade. I’m nervous about high school and what the rest of my life after it will entail. 

Do you still talk to your friends from middle school and high school? I really hope you do. I think my friends would say the same thing. We are all really close and hope to stay really close forever. If you don’t talk with your friends from middle school, that’s okay. I hope you have new friends now.

I hope you’re not too stressed out. Right now I am stressed enough, and I’m only in 8th grade! I have all this homework and all these projects that I have no idea how to do. If that’s what it’s like for me in middle school, I can only imagine what it will be like later when I have real things to worry about — not things like boys, makeup,clothing, and school. I hope you give yourself a break every once in a while.

What are you doing in life? I really hope you have the dreams I always dream of having. I hope you went on in life to be whatever makes you happy. Whatever our job is, please tell me it’s not boring. I want to have an exciting job. Something I can be famous for. I’m just not totally sure what yet. When I figure it out, I’ll get back to you.

No matter where you are in life right now, I hope it makes you happy. I hope that you have friends who make you feel good about yourself. I hope you have a career that makes you happy. I hope that you have a life you really enjoy (Even if it’s not what I envision as the perfect life right now). I really hope that when you read this letter, it will make you happy to know how much I want you to be happy. I want you to know you are loved, and surround yourself with people that make you feel loved. I want you to live the awesome life I have always dreamed of living.


Yours forever (literally),
