a letter from myself at 15 to myself at 25

after 10 years of waiting, today I opened the letter that I wrote to myself when I was 15. (there was a tear in the envelope from when I almost gave in to the temptation of reading it years ago) I'm a little disappointed because I thought I had written predictions, but instead I had described myself as I was then -- complete with a list of favorite bands and likes/dislikes. It's a little embarrassing (oh my obsession with Elijah Wood) and quite a bit funny ("You're not married yet, I hope.") My plan for when I grew up was to "either be a president or an actress, but above all an artist." This was apparently before I decided that responsibility for leading a whole country was too much stress. The whole tone of the letter reminds me SO MUCH of my lil sis. *giggles* She definitely takes after me rather than her parents.

The best part: "I shall dream and learn as much as possible." I would say that that is the only part that is still true. ♥
