To my future self, I hope that time has been kind to you, and that you are well. You wrote this letter some time ago and gave it to someone you trust in the hopes it would never be needed. I can't predict what your life is like, but it's likely that some of the things you may be facing are things you went through with your own parents and others. It's because of that that you wrote yourself this letter.

These are both serious and non-serious mostly non-serious and in no particular order of importance. What was the first thing you did after you turned 18? Did you ever follow through on that threat to leave your younger brother at home and not take him to school if he sleeps in no matter how many times everyone tells him to wake up?
Do you have any regrets or mistakes you wish you could undo? What is currently your biggest nightmare? Did you ever get the urge to rent a porta potty? Have you gotten in a crash yet while driving?
What did you learn from those events? Have you gotten over your Taylor Swift obsession? How about Josh Hutcherson? What was it like finally getting your high school diploma and suddenly realizing that a big chapter of your life is over?
What is the best thing about being an adult? The answer should exclude getting to sign your own field trip permission slips and registering to vote. Because yes, I know you, and I know that those two things would otherwise be your answer.
Do you still do that thing where you basically talk to yourself on Twitter at three in the morning? Do you still sound crazy every time you do that?
Who was the last person you texted? Has Taylor Swift released a new album yet? If so, beg Mom for concert tickets. Do I embarrass you? Favorite tweet of the past year? Questions aside, I also have a few wishes for you.
Be who you are and who you want to be. Be the best you. I even want you to go through some hardships and struggles because you and I know that hardships make us grow and learn more not only about the world and other people, but about ourselves, as well.
They turn us into a stronger and better person, and the struggles we overcome are oftentimes our best successes. Most importantly, I want you to be happy and satisfied. Getting ready to embark on the next part of your journey probably has you feeling exhilarated and more nervous than I can imagine, but honestly?
