I found this letter tucked away in one of my many boxes after I moved and I was like....this handwriting looks familiar....oh wait, it's mine. And why is it addressed to me? Well thinking back, in English 101 Class back in college, the TA had us do a project and it was to write to ourselves a year from then and give advice etc. Here is what I wrote and...man...why didn't I listen to myself back then...sheesh, I could have saved myself lots of emotional turmoil but I was not ready and couldn't have understood then what I know now. Well I still abide by these rules and it's led me to this wonderful life that I have now. I was pretty right on even 12 years ago.

Due to the fact that it's Snowmageddon here in Seattle, I found a letter I wrote way back where....it snowed! And yes I had a hamster named Phoebe (pronounced Pho-Be, like phobia. I thought that was a real name back then and used it during a book report and the teacher thought I was nuts).
I had to post this one. This one made me laugh out loud even now reading it like 18 years later. BTW, the schedule that is posted is for what we were going to do when I visited. Yes as you can see, we had to call our moms at least 3 times that day. My parents were super paranoid. If I even mentioned that we were going to go outside, I wouldn't have been able to visit Jennifer and my visit would have been canceled. True story, there were so many times when our play dates got canceled. One of the main reasons was my dad having a bad dream the night before. If he dreamed of a woman or anything he felt was negative, I was not allowed to go outside the house the following day. True Story!

My boss went to Cancun for Christmas and while he was telling me....I totally forgot that I was there too back in 1997 with my Spanish Club. We raised money by selling beaded geckos and clipping coupons. I think I was able to have all of my trip paid that way or at least a big chunk. Here is a post card that I sent to Jennifer.
I went on this trip because another friend of mine got invited to go to Spain and I was like...I can go travel too and I did. This was also the first time my parents let me travel alone and it was really annoying. After this trip, one of the mom of these kids freaked out because her daughter got sick after the trip. Well out of the 7 or so that were so, of course one person would get sick. The mom blamed me saying I made everyone sick...well I let her know that out of everyone in the trip, I was the one that got all of the immunization shots so she shut up after that. Oh this was also the trip where during a layover in Texas, I saw Chuck Norris and got his autograph...Jennifer has the journal which has it.
