Time Travelled — almost 11 years

What's it like?

Dear FutureMe,

I can't believe I'm doing this. I doubt I'll have the same e-mail by the time this is suppost to be be sent, but what the hell I have nothing better to do. So what's it like? Is the future everything you hoped for? Dreamed of? I know I, we, whatever were hoping in part for greatness, to finish that comic idea and make it a success, to create a lot of animations and get recognition, to finish college and get a good job, and all that stuff. In all likelihood life will not become what you hoped, but hopefully you're, we're, out of mom and dad's house and living on our own. Maybe our dog is still alive and living with us, I hope he is, it's nice to have a companion when you're alone. Though maybe you have a roommate or boyfriend instead for company. I just don't want to be alone any more and I hope you aren't. It feels really vast right now, even though I have good friends at the moment. Do you remember them? Or are you still friends with them? Hell do you even still use facebook any more?

Heh, I'm doing a lot of hoping and wishing. But that's all I can do isn't it. And I have so many questions. Did you ever finish those paintings? Or that story? What's the future like? Has the future improved, less hunger, less pollution, less of war and anger? Have we started going into space, or using technology that was only an idea at this time? I can only hope it has.

I hope, if anything, that everything isn't the worst it could possibly be and that you still have family and friends to hang on to.

-You're 20 year old self
