I’m going to be totally honest here; I’m writing this on December 31st. And you will most likely have it in your inbox on the same day, the last day of 2021. I’m a procrastinator and this makes perfect sense, but I’ve been wanting to write to you all before the year ends.
I think that for all of the “bad” memories someone may have, they help them realize and appreciate all of the good ones. You DID do a lot more in high school than you may realize. In addition to all of your quantitative achievements, you had an abundance of qualitative ones as well. Like you said, it’s the hiccups in the past that molded you into the smooth talkin friend we all know and love today.
