Dear person I hate,
You singlehandedly ruined the first half of my senior year with your swift little move. But just so you know, I’m coming back stronger than I’ve ever been before, both mentally and physically. Watch your back, because I will get my revenge.
Dear best friend,
I’m so sorry for the way I’ve acted these past couple of months. I’ve been pushing you away and getting angry at you every time you’ve tried to help me and I feel so horrible for the way I’ve been treating you. I’m afraid that I’ve lost you for good…but I’d do anything at all if it means I can have you back in my life. You’re the best friend a girl could ever have and I’m so sorry for everything.
I haven’t been that great this year, but if somehow, I’m getting something from you…all I want this year is for my parents to feel whole again. I miss Brett everyday…but he would’ve wanted all of us to keep on living our lives to the fullest, not just enough to get by.
Dear Future Me,
I want you to remember the conversation you had with Coach Lirette whenever you feel yourself slipping back into the darkness. You know you won’t find the hope, the courage or the answers you’re looking for there. As long as you make the decision to be happy, you will be.
Dear past me,
Whatever you do, don’t push people away when the try to help you. That thing that’s eating you up inside…it won’t just go away if you leave it alone. It’ll get worse. So take your friends’ help when they offer it…and please, don’t take anyone for granted. One day, they might not be there anymore.
Dear person I’m jealous of,
I wish you didn’t get under my skin as much as you do. I wish I wasn’t jealous of you, but I can’t help it. I’m losing this battle and you’re winning.
Oh my god! You’re finally back! Seriously, it’s about damn time. What’s up, girl?
I’ve been warned? You’ve got to be kidding me. You’re lucky that you’re my twin and I don’t actually want to kill you or else I’d be all over you, making you wish you’d never challenged me in the first place.
Wait…is this a challenge, twin? You do know that I am fantastic at kicking ass, right?
Ha, as if you’d be able to noogie me. Don’t make me bust out some wrestling moves and kick your ass.
I just did. Maybe you should check your phone more often. :P
Hah, nice to meet you Flint. You look familiar…I think I’ve seen you around somewhere.
Like a dino? Hmm, interesting. I think we’re gonna be good friends, Flint.
What? What’s going on?
I was wondering whose number that was. Good timing too, since I was just about to send you mine and ask for yours.
Yeah, I’d love that. Actually, I’ve got a scoop on a concert that I want to go to that’s happening over break and I’ve tapped you to be my concert buddy. You should feel special. ;)
Yes, absolutely. How can anyone not like Barney? Hah, sure we can. Who are you again?
But seriously, I’m Lauren. I don’t think I’ve introduced myself to you.
