I'm glad you linked the letter to yourself. After we did that in Mr. Balagna's 8th grade class, and I opened it up senior year of high school, I wrote another one to myself to open up at the end of college. And then I did the same thing again except this time it's for when I get out of federal service. Even though I journal and keep plenty of notes on my phone etc., I loved writing about my future aspirations, current feelings, and anything that seemed fitting to squeeze in between so I could see how far I've come when I break at my next pit stop (You weren't the only one watching Cars 3 it seems...hmmm).
