Prompt 21-Write a letter to the 10 year old child you had been-


Dear Sue,


I am glad to inform you that you are still alive in the future. God this feels a bit strange, knowing that you are me from the past, and that you are gonna be reading this from a future me. I can’t seem to describe it in words on how complicated and bizarre it seems, but it doesn’t matter.


I love you. I MISS those times when I was innocent and it seemed as if everything was going to be okay, I miss my innocent personality. I can just bask in it and my heart will swell in sweetness on how cute and naïve you were. I can’t exactly say that you’re the same way now. No as a matter of fact you are the quite opposite. I’m so sorry for tainting that innocence. I feel guilty and so much remorse that I couldn’t have been like that for a while


You’re gonna go through a few (who am I kiddin? You’re gonna go through hell) rough patches in your life, but so far it’s gonna be okay. Its always going to be okay. Umm, you know that 3 year straight honor roll streak you had? Yeah, say good bye to that when you get to middle school. Sorry, I kinda screwed things up for you, and either my intelligence decided to go on a vacation or my IQ level dropped.


You’re still going to have your friends and by god, you will love them so much it’ll kill ya. They are going to stick with you no matter what stupid decision I did even if it hurts them in the process and you’re gonna love em for that. So much. Treat them like gold because quite frankly every one else is barely even reaching copper compared to these guys.


I don’t really want to tell you much more, I’m afraid it might alter things a bit too much and I don’t wanna stop you from being you because as much stupid mistakes I have made I wouldn’t take any of them back if that meant changing you I, who you are. It’s what I and its what other people love the most about you. I’m going to go all corny on you like those stupid agendas that the school makes us keep with those “Don’t do drugs” sorta messages on the back. Be yourself, and don’t give a flying f-am I allowed to curse to a 10 year old? F**k it. Don’t give a flying f**k what others think of you (but to some extent, don’t be ignorant) and just believe in what you think.


I love you, and I miss you SO much, it’s driving me crazy. I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to write to you and I hope that you won’t creep out about this. Just know that it’s anything but threatening.


P.S. STOP making fun of Adliani for liking Naruto and not liking Inuyasha because godammit your whole damn life will be about frikin Naruto when you grow up! 


P.S.S. Global warming is a serious issue now (my time), so DON’T fall asleep when you have to see The Inconvenient Truth in the 6th grade. START RECYCLING NOW. And on another note, if you will remember this, there’s going to be a boy who’s got black, long hair and he’s going to help you on your first day to middle school with your locker, and he’s a keeper. Trust me, I would know ;)


With lots and lots and lots of love,

-Sue (you)

This is really biographical and well I don't know it made me go back and really think of myself, and thinking about how I used to be tasted bittersweet really because when I finished writing this, it felt like reality gave me a cold, hard slap in the face, and I got a little teary :P
Anywho, I know it's a bit strange but I really seemed to like the prompt

It was incredibly sweet, and the nostalgia is bittersweet and if anything, a slap to the face. Congrats on a great write.

I love it, it's so personal, and really wonderful. Beautiful story. It made me laugh, the fact that it was a letter written to yourself made it even more wonderful... I absolutely adored it! The confidence for the future was also one of my favorite parts! Fantastic story! Really loved it! :D

This is amazing. I agree with the missing innocence. I especially like you're ending line. 'He's a keeper. Trust me, I would know ;)'

This is love. :]

I thought it was great. Had me laughin' at some parts and then nodding with the hard truth that as you get older, you lose your innocence. Excellent read =]
