This thread is where you can write a letter to yourself to read in the year 2018. This thread will be up for the next month, October 3rd specifically, for you all to post your letters. Then this thread will be hidden for a year, and once the year is up, the letters you wrote to yourself will be sent to you at the same time next year. This was a tradition started by Azriel in 2011, and this will be its 7th year going!

It's a way to reflect on everything that has happened to you so far this year, in addition to your interests, who you are close to, what has changed, and your hopes for 2018. As Azriel said: "This should be positive, inspirational, uplifting. This is not something to bring yourself down, or bring others down. Don't trash yourself, or someone else." It can be in whatever format you would like, whether you want to make lists, or have it as an actual letter format. Here are a list of questions or topics to cover if you need inspiration:

What's your favorite song right now? Favorite movie?
Who's your best friend(s)?
Who do you want to give a shout out to?
What's the current trends that you're into right now?
What do you like to collect?
Where do you want to travel to?
What do you want to see happen overall in 2018?
Where do you see yourself at, on this date in 2018?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?
What are your current goals in 2018?
What have you achieved this year so far that you want to remember?
What do you dream of doing this year?
What grade are you in?
If you're not in college yet, what kind of career do you want to have?
Where do you currently work or go to school?
What's your favorite subjects in school?
What do you like most about your job?
What do you like most about yourself right now?
What's a funny memory you don't want to forget?
What amazing thing happened to you today?
What do you aspire to be?
What advice to you have for your future self?
What is the advice you'd like to give your childhood self?
What's something you'd like to change about life?

If you’re going to say that kind of thing, get lost. If you need, change me.
I can never let her go.

Spoiler! :
Dear Lauren,

Wow, I just finished reading last year's letter and it was amazing. I showed it to John who told me he really enjoyed it and it made me feel really warm and special that he loved reading it. It makes me smile to think that when you wrote that you had only finished one year of uni! It's madness to think I'm just about to start my final year.

Right now, you're incredibly poor and feeling it. You're taking it pretty well though and you're laughing about it most of the time. I'm proud of you for coping with having just £20 in your bank for over a month. Roll on student finance! I dread to think what position you're in right now, but I'm also really excited! I can't believe that by now you will have graduated and will be in the next stage of your life...OH MY GOD ARE YOU IN JAPAN? You're either teaching in Japan or studying for a Masters degree I hope. Either way, I really hope you're happy. I know that you're worried about not living with John if you're in Japan by then, but remember, you are strong and independent and you can do this. Show everyone else, and yourself, that you are capable, because you are.
I know that you potentially are also working right now at home and might be able to move out soon.

You just got back from a drive with John, Pam and Waddles. You also got to cuddle with Jax for a bit before you went out because Lily forgot her Teddy and we had to drop it off. You spent a lot of time playing with Lily today and you're enjoying being an auntie. I can't believe she'll be four by the time you read this!
I really hope that you are still with John...but I have no doubt that you are. He's the love of your life and I know he still will be in a year's time. I know past me was wondering - counselling went amazingly well. You got to talk about absolutely everything, aired all the truth and came away feeling empowered and so much better. If you ever fall back into a bad spot, or are there right now, remember how much you have gone through and how you have always made it out. There is always happiness waiting for you.

Remember-
John is your best friend and I know he always will be. If you ever feel worried or insecure, remember that he is not going to hurt you. Love him and give him the trust that he deserves, always.
Waddles is your baby. Oh my goodness he and your relationship will be so old by now! He will be two and you and John will be three years! <3 Have fun future selves. Cherish each other, time on earth is short, these years are going too fast now you're getting older.

I really hope you got the grades you wanted at uni. So far you're solidly achieving firsts in almost everything and I really want to keep it that way. If you didn't get a first class honours, don't beat yourself up though. It's just uni, and so many people happily come away with less than a first - don't hold yourself to high standards and then be crushed if you can't reach them every single time!
Oh, you also just recently entered a writing competition. Didja win?
+ Pub quiz friendship group are the best. You're really getting on with pals and hopefully you're all still in contact with them. I know that I will have been graduated for a long time by the time you're reading this, so I hope you're making the most of freedom!

Please remember to be so, so proud of yourself for all you have achieved. I know that having anxiety is really difficult, especially during stressful times (right now I'm trying to get through reading Dracula) but you have done so well. Stop putting yourself down, stop expecting the worst from yourself and others - keep swimming <3 I hope that by the time you read this, you won't need this advice. You have been making leaps and bounds with your mental health already, putting a lot of wrongs right and generally moving on from the past. It's okay to still be feeling hurt, but your past can't touch you now and it never will again - remember this too. You have your whole, wonderful future ahead of you. This letter really has turned into an uplifting and motivating pep talk, but really that's what I want. Despite having a lovely day today, I felt insecure and worrisome, but your letter from last year really helped you feel so much better. YOU GOT THIS LOZZA.

So, it's time to do this fun thing;


What's your favorite song right now? Favorite movie?
Learn to Let Go - Kesha (OH YES YOU REMEMBER THIS HYPE?)
I can't pick a favourite movie. Anything animated though. ALWAYS ALL THE DISNEY.

Who's your best friend(s)?
Still John and Waddles...but as well as your high school friends, you also have Brandy, Nathan and your pub quiz group. I hope you don't lose contact - if you do make sure you message them and ask how they're getting on!

Who do you want to give a shout out to?
John. Always John. Thank you for being the person I've always needed. If you're no longer there...I still needed you. You taught me some very important things. But I really, really think you're still gonna be there, teaching me things every day <3

What's the current trends that you're into right now?
Choker necklaces.
Highlighter.
Playing Hanafuda (a little)
Crocheting.
Crop tops.
Wearing too much black.

He told me forever.

What do you aspire to be?
Just as happy as I am right now.

What advice to you have for your future self?
Don't worry be happy now DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO.

What is the advice you'd like to give your childhood self?
It will get better. Ditch them. They're not good for you. Keep swimming. You will look back on this and see the light at the end of the tunnel.

What's something you'd like to change about life?
Mortality.

What is one of your favorite memories of this year so far?
Too many to count, all of them with my wonderful family and boyfriend.

What did you do for your birthday? Or what do you plan to do?
Like always, Bella Italia! I will probably do it again this year.

What's something new you want to learn, by this time next year?
Probably Japanese if that's where I'm gonna go next year, but also some more skills regarding academics.

Have a good one, Lozza <3

Dear Naomi,

You are now Grayson. It's a nice name, but I hope you stick with this LMFAO. Everything seems so scary right now. I really, really hope you are still with Esteban by this time. I know you probably will be, but time changes everything, especially a year from now. I'm about to finally go into EMT class, you f**ing made it, dude. There are no more obstacles, hopefully. Hurricane Harvey was the biggest, but classes start Tuesday. It's Sunday now. You weren't proposed to, but you're reaching the official mark for the 3rd year of being with Esteban. Yeah, I'm still vegetarian.

Dear future Grayson,

Wow. You made it this far. You're 23 now!! I'm so stoked for you. Right now we are in a car going home to Corpus Christi. It is 4:33pm. Your back hurts. You won't be home til 9:30pm. I miss Kiara and Hel a lot. Esteban is next to me watching Kubo and the Two Strings. You have four tattoos. You didn't get the Neymar and Messi tattoos and hopefully by then you've got them figured out since Neymar left FCB /: I'm terrified of what the future will bring. Absolutely terrified. You're a good person. I'm glad I'm finally over worrying about what Wolfhome thinks of me. I haven't worried about that in like a year. Are you still on Wolfhome? I wonder. Anyway, I'm probably going to watch Naruto or write La Liga: Violence and Tantrums. Have a great day. Here's some other stuff:

What's your favorite song right now? Favorite movie?: Subeme La Radio - Enrique Iglesias & Wonder Woman
Who's your best friend(s)? Sven, Kayla, Muriel & Barbara

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? With two children and Esteban, being a flight medic.
What are your current goals in 2018? Get through this semester of college. Then graduate and get my EMT cert!! Finally.
What have you achieved this year so far that you want to remember? I finished my second semester of college this spring and bullshitted through a summer class and still got a B. I just got back from an amazing two week vacation to Florida with my boyfriend and his parents. We went to Disney World & Universal Studios!! You also met (kinda) Ed Sheeran.
What do you dream of doing this year? Getting through college. That's it.
What grade are you in? Sophomore year of college.
If you're not in college yet, what kind of career do you want to have? -------
Where do you currently work or go to school? Del Mar College (Go Vikings!!!)
What's your favorite subjects in school? History, English, and Science.
What do you like most about your job? ------
What do you like most about yourself right now? Shit idk man, probably my ability to not take crap from others and stand up for myself & others even though people might hate me for it.
What's a funny memory you don't want to forget? I'm not sure, probably already forgot it.
What amazing thing happened to you today? I've been in a car for almost twelve hours. Nothing much. I got to watch Kubo and the Two Strings finally!!
What do you aspire to be? An EMT
What advice to you have for your future self? Just keep doing you. You know what's best for you. Be happy, be healthy, and keep fighting. You have family and friends who love and care about you. Hopefully you're still with Esteban (sorry if you're not and this hurts you). You'll go far. Smile more, work out more, and love yourself.
What is the advice you'd like to give your childhood self? Good job, kid. You survived. I'm sorry I wasn't strong enough to keep you safe and do what needed to be done to stop your past from happening the way it did. It's alright, you turned into a great person.
What's something you'd like to change about life? I'd like to be a better person, honestly. I'd like to get my anger under control and not let insignificant stuff bother me.
What is one of your favorite memories of this year so far? Ahhh, going to Florida!!!
What did you do for your birthday? Or what do you plan to do? I went to TT (ask Esteban what it is, it's the Italian restaurant you can't pronounce) with your mum, Esteban, Muriel, Barbara, Haley, and Amira. PS, Haley is pregnant 8)
What's something new you want to learn, by this time next year? More Spanish.

I don't really have anything long to say like last time, but don't forget what matters in life and where you will go from here and from 2018. Things are scary, I know, but you will make it. I hope Kiara and Hel are doing well. I hope you and Esteban are as well. I hope mum got her crap together & Phaylin grew up (doubt he did).

Your current friends are: Muriel, Barbara, Haley, Sven, Kayla, Kelly, Maggot, & Viverinnae.

Did you go visit AZ, by the way? I hope so. I miss J.

How is Estrella Errante?

Enjoy the rest of 2018 and the entirety of 2019!!! Te quiero mucho 😘.

Chao, Grayson Lokison.

Dear Future Jess,
I hope you are not an idiot still.
- 2k17 Jess

Spoiler! :
What's your favorite song right now? Favorite movie?
Favorite song would have to be a tie between; yes girl - Bea Miller + 7 Years Lukas Graham.
Favorite movie...Idk. Deadpool.

Who's your best friend(s)? Alice, Avourkrah, the loser Sandman, Kieran & Coyfox/Matt Matt

Who do you want to give a shout out to? S/O TO THE PEOPLE I MENTIONED ABOVE. You guys make life easier to deal with and while I may not say it a lot, I care about y'all deeply. <3

Where do you want to travel to?
Oregon, California, France & Canada.

Where do you see yourself at, on this date in 2018?
Hopefully moved in with Alice, or even living alone. But having a steady income, and living comfortably.
Having a room filled with Sasuke Uchiha related items- cosplaying him maybe, and having a larger shrine dedicated to Chris Colfer<3

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?
Who knows.

What are your current goals in 2018?
Just make it through the year LMFAO.

What have you achieved this year so far that you want to remember?
I started seeking help for my mental health, and I've accepted my sexuality.
September 17th will be one year you're clean.
I also (while this isn't a big deal to some- not that I care too much on that) but, I saved a Yorkie's life when a Pit Bull Mix lunged at it to kill.
I restrained the pit and was able to free the Yorkie and it was not injured- which I am grateful for. I on the other hand had a few cuts/scratches and bruises from the pit.

What do you like most about your job?
Saving the lives of animals. Strays, newborns- whatever.

What do you like most about yourself right now?
Uh..my hair ig. It's a violet black now.

What do you aspire to be?
A good person. I don't necessarily have to be liked, (Lord knows I'm not really right now) but what counts is I am trying.
Little by little, hopefully others see that too. If not, that's ig too bad.

What advice to you have for your future self?
Don't take everything to heart, and if you lose some people along the way- all you can do is move forward.
So long as you don't lose yourself in it.

What is the advice you'd like to give your childhood self?
There are so many things, but, for one is don't be afraid. Life is scary, but you've gone through so much already. You grew up too fast- but that doesn't mean that this is it. You're stronger than it, even when you feel like you aren't.

What's something you'd like to change about life?
My high school years. I wasted so much of it allowing BS to rule my mind and actions.
Also hi yes, I'd like to change the lottery numbers to match my own tickets so I can be wealthy thanks.

What is one of your favorite memories of this year so far?
The BBQ I had at Alice's house, and having shots with her and her dad. Seeing my mom's eyes open after her surgery, and to hear her voice. Also hearing her say "I did it Jess, I woke up."
The woman I spoke to about my mental health agreeing with me, and making me feel like I wasn't as insane as everyone around me made me feel like I was.

What did you do for your birthday? Or what do you plan to do?
Shrugs. I don't particularly care for it, but maybe go out for drinks or smth.

What's something new you want to learn, by this time next year?
How to draw decently.

Dear future Oksana,

When you're reading this hopefully things changed and turned out for the better for you. Let me explain: Currently, September 4, 2017, you are in a really bad place in many ways. Socially, emotionally, mentally, physically, academically. You're unmotivated, always sad, and your dreams are beginning to die out. You lost a good friend of 3 years (A.N) a month or so ago as well. You're struggling to get through the sophomore year when it barely started. Grades are plummeting and you actually have abut 10 hours of homework to catch up on due tomorrow and you haven't started!

I hope when you read this, these are all different. That your life has blossomed into something more beautiful than the wasteland. I hope you found the problem and figured out a way to solve it. I hope you were successful up to the point and you do not regret the decisions you have made that have landed you where you are now today. I hope you found something and someone worth living for because right now, it's not looking so good.

Please remember that even though sometimes you may not believe or see it: you ARE beautiful. You ARE strong. You ARE smart. You ARE creative. You ARE loved. And most importantly, you ARE YOU. Don't let anyone change that. You're perfect and the best version of you. Also I hope you still love Gaara, Levi Ackerman, and Sasori because I'll be dang disappointed if you don't.

Spoiler! :
dear andrew,
another year has past, and you're still on wolfhome. cool, you go dude!
i always suck at writing letters to myself but i'm going to do the best that i can. you graduated high school from granger and right now you're taking three classes at salt lake community college (psychology 1010, math 1010, and history 1700). you met a girl August 19, 2016 and started dating her on September 11, 2016. her name is Lorena. you two have gone through a lot, a lot more than you went through with your last relationship. this is the longest relationship that you've ever been in so far (it's really close to a year now). she did break up with you about 5 times now, though.
on May 10th, you moved in with her. you turned 18 that day. your parents were pissed off and hurt, but you were happy, at least for a little while. you've been really angry and depressed for the last 4 months and fighting with Lorena 24/7 until that horrible night. i'm not going to go into it because you already know what i'm talking about. please tell me that you got everything figured out by now. i hope things worked out for you, in your favor. look back at this as something that you never want to happen again. get the help you need, because god damn do you need it. that's not a bad thing, either.
on July 23, 2017 you came out as transgender. isn't that so weird to think about? you finally figured that part of yourself out. i'm so happy! on August 22, 2017 you began taking testosterone. what changes have you noticed?? does your parents accept it??? just tell me all about it. hopefully you can have top surgery soon at that point in the future.

Dear Future Danny,

When you're reading this I hope things have changed and that you are in a better place both mentally and physically as this have been a roller coaster for you this year.
Let me explain: Currently on September 6th 2017 you have been in a bad place mentally as you are struggling with your depression and things have been gradually getting worse for you in that department.
You have been unmotivated, bored and your dreams are starting to become further away than you would like to imagine... But you have improved a lot this year, even if things looked bleak at the time.

You finally accepted that you won't be able to please everybody and someone will always have something negative to say about you, regardless of how you identify. But you have taken it upon yourself to turn
your life around, starting with accepting your identity as a Transgender Man wholeheartedly and you know that this decision will change your life for the better and that's why it matters so much to you.
There will always be complications but I promise you that everything will come together the way that it's supposed to and the people that matter the most to you will be more accepting than you might think.

Currently you have been trying to find a career path that can make you grow as a person and you have settled on Psychology. This will require you to be a full time student again and most of your time will be spent studying for your medical degree at University as all you have ever wanted to do in life was to inspire people and help save lives. You have always been very compassionate towards others and your understanding of emotions and how they work can be advantageous with this career path... You might really get to save lives someday, how amazing would that be? You already know that your family support you with this and believe that this is the perfect choice for you and deep down, even though you are on the fence about it right now, you know it's the right choice.

I hope that by the time you are reading this you have began Testosterone and are currently finishing up your first year at University studying for that degree and that you have made some friends while you're there!

Just remember to not get hung up on the negative things that are happening to you as they are not failures, because you will always be redirected to something that was meant for you. Make mistakes and do it again, fall deeply in love and don't question anything because the best things in life often come without plans... And those memories will be apart of you forever!

[spoiler][quote]What's your favorite song right now? Favorite movie?

Daddy Issues - The Neighbourhood & The Lion King (Obviously)

What's a funny memory you don't want to forget?

When me and my best friend (Ngaire) were in middle school we were apart of this group where we went to all kinds of reserves and lakes for the day. Anyway, we went to this lake and when we were getting dressed our other friend put her hand in cow poop and while she was freaking out, me and Ngaire came up with a song together about how she put her hand in poop and we sang it all the way home! This was so mean but all of us knew it was in good intentions and looking back on that day is just hilarious!
