Dear You, Take what I say with a grain of salt for I am still young and have much to learn; if anything, I believe I can add a different perspective to your current way of thinking. There will be no order to these, merely the way each lesson pops into my head: 1. If you are in high school, oh child, you are just beginning your life. What appears to be the end of the world now, will be something you laugh about years later. High school is where you begin asking the life questions: What do you want to do with the rest of your life, being the biggest question of them all.
I took a second look and liked it!
Last Christmas, my sister, who is a far more thoughtful gift-giver than I am, bought me a clever book titled Things to Write About. The book is a list of — as you might well guess — writing prompts. It's like journaling with structure. As part of my more random side, I am setting this book beside my computer with hopes of eventually writing on all topics less a small handful which are too salacious for general publication. Some prompts will do little more than inspire a few bullet points, but there are others which may prick my ambitions. Just to be clear, I do not plan to be particularly ritualistic about this. Nor do I intend to make any firm commitments about how long this will take…this is strictly a pleasure cruise.
