Bid Adieu to 18

August 11, 2016

When I was 14 I saw this idea on Pinterest to write a letter to yourself in five years and to store it away and open it then. Me being a Pinterest freak, I did just that. I took out that letter and opened it this morning and read some of the things 14 year old me wanted for myself at age 19: self happiness, to go to a good college, great friends, and potentially a boyfriend. I have all of that and so much more and it brought a smile to my face reading all of the lowkey frivolous things I thought were important then. In the letter I reminded myself to work hard and to never let anyone tell me no and five years later, I continue to do just that. Here's to 19, my final teen year, and all of the happiness and prosperity to come.
