Letter: A Diabolical Thank You

I wanted to post this last week, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it quite yet. At my job, I work as a teacher (uncertified, so really I’m like a youth instructor or recreations leader) for Kindergarteners and 3rd Graders. It’s a really interesting job. It takes a lot of energy out of you at the end of the day, but when it boils down to it, I find it quite fun and I learn a lot. I have been having some difficulties, but everyday I find a new way to fix a problem! That’s a good thing.

I decided to post this letter today after months of deliberating because I feel like I’ve gotten to that point in the semester where I am starting to feel a little stuck. A lot of people around me are feeling in a rut and not feeling particularly motivated to study as hard as they normally would and are experiencing some regrets with what they’re doing or how they’re doing it. With this letter, I would like to bring back the memory of high school where our worlds were not the same as they are now and how someone could be such an influence to our simple minds.

This particular teacher helped me so much. The big difference she made guided me in the next school and I remember her kind words to this day. She mostly made an impact on me because she was the only teacher in a very long time who didn’t treat me like shit (pardon my language) and that made me feel like I had a purpose and was not useless or stupid!

So with that, here is my diabolical thank you letter…

Letter: Dear 27 Year Old Me

Last week, I wrote a letter to my 11 year old self on my 22nd birthday. It was more of a letter of advice about what I should have done (or, should do) to make my life just a little bit easier without really changing too much. I basically reminded myself that mistakes are okay, but to listen and respond to people (mostly teachers) in a clear manner. To understand more, please go take a look at it – here!

This week, I decided to post a letter to my older self in 5 years as so much is going to change by then!

Letter: Dear 11 Year Old Me

I have been meaning to write two letters to myself. One to my younger self and another to my future self as I have done in the past. I was inspired by another blogger to finally write a letter to my younger self since today is my 22nd birthday! (#LeosRule)

This is more of an advice letter than an update, but I hope you find some truth in what I say that may relate to you.

Letter: Dear Future Me

The best letter I ever received was a letter I wrote four years ago (2010) at a YMCA summer surf camp in San Diego. During our siesta, our cabin councilor told those who couldn’t nap to write to their future self. Little did I know, I knew myself much more than I thought.
