Time Travelled — almost 9 years

A letter from January 27th, 2013

Jan 27, 2013 Jan 27, 2022

Dear FutureMe,

I'm sitting here now and wondering what the future holds. Is life any better now? Have I got a job, am I published? I doubt it but who knows what the future holds? Except from you of course, Future Me. I don't really have that much to say to be honest.

There's so much that I want to know but of course, that's impossoble. It's like a burning longing that cannot be extinguished. Am I happy now, or am I still trapped in a maze of anxiety and depression.

You may or may not remember but when you wrote this, you were having a rough time of it. You were stuck between a rock and a hard place and for a while, you saw no way out. After that, the story continues with you, Future Me.

I understand that this may be surreal to be receiving a letter from ten years ago but it's happened. I daresay you've forgotten.

I write this in the hope that you'll look back on this day and remember. Remember your crush/obsession on You Know Who? The guy with the curly hair. You may still know him. You may not.

Well, that's all I have to say for now. Read you in ten years.

Past Me
