Open letter to my future self, written on the first day of school


Dear Future-Rebecca,

If you are reading this, it means you are likely about to cry vigorously in the shower and/or stay up past 2 AM eating Better Cheddars the night before an assignment is due. In the former case: go ahead, come back when you’re done, and in the latter: stop that…

You’ll do great. This is a fantastic letter to yourself- wish I had written something similar for myself back in the day.

The only thing I want to say is, wrt:

You are here because a village of people believed in you, so you should probably honor that and keep slogging along

don’t forget that we will carry you when slogging along seems like an insurmountable task! 👭
