Time Travelled — almost 10 years

A letter from June 23rd, 2011

Dear FutureMe,

Well, you're twenty seven at the time of reading. Shocking, isn't it, hopefully you've forgotten that you wrote this letter, although I suppose after randomly stumbling online and quickly writing a letter on some unknown website the memory wouldn't last ten years. Obviously, I'm still seventeen at this point, and I have all of our great dreams and aspirations. All I can really think to say is that I hope you've accomplished them. It would be awesome if you have and you're reading this, laughing to yourself, thinking about me, as you used to be. Well then, I would say good luck, and I suppose I still should, although really I have a larger workload ahead of me than you do, think about it. Oh! Also, I want to say that I beat Portal 2 yesterday, and it was fantastic, I'm sure you are aware of that, I mean we are the same person, but I think you may find it amusing to recall that old game. Ha, I'm making it sound like you're so old, although you are only twenty seven, you have tons of life ahead of you. Enjoy it! I intend to! The final thing I will say is this, please, rise above my expectations of the future, future-Alex.

Yours truly (Funny, right?)
You

P.S. I am about to go to France for a month, I leave July 2nd, just another thing you may like to remember about yourself back then, or well, to me, now.

P.P.S. I figure it will tell you the date, but this should arrive on the twenty third of June, and it is the twenty third of June right now, in the present, or past, whichever. Just something to note I guess.

P.P.S. Sorry about the post scripts, but just to make you laugh a bit more, since technology changes so quickly, I have a massive 1 terabyte hard drive, and some other "modern" components, I'm sure they must seem like scrap to you!

P.P.P.S. I really hope this site won't sent me a bunch of junk mail since I gave it my email address, but that's a future thing to worry about. Not your future that is. More like, future-Alex in a couple days but I'm sure he'll resolve it, so the two of us shouldn't worry about it. I just hope you still use this email, but I see no reason why you wouldn't.
