This thread is where you can write a letter to yourself to read in the year 2019. This thread will be up for the next month, October 6th 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 8th 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 2019. 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 2019?
Where do you see yourself at, on this date in 2019?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?
What are your current goals in 2019?
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?
What is one of your favorite memories of this year so far?
What did you do for your birthday? Or what do you plan to do?
What's something new you want to learn, by this time next year?
