Letter From Almost 10 Years Ago

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 10, 2014, 6:39 PM


It's been getting spontaneously HOT lately! I have to turn 2 electric fans on and still end up really really uncomfortably hot! Like, even at night... it's still so hot and the fans don't really do much. I'm still feeling all sweaty and gross and I hate it!!! Air conditioning is too bloody expensive and I feel really guilty using it, but OMG IT'S SO HOT!!!!! Maybe overnight air conditioning is fine??? Crikey!

Also apparently there is a Franklymydear on OKCupid on the real. Hopefully my April Fools joke doesn't make him look like a creeper. AWKWARDDDDDD.

* * * * *


So a lot of people who know me personally know that grade 11 was my favorite year in high school. I could go on and on about that great year and since I kept an excruciatingly detailed journal about it I can technically relive all those memories, including the awkward cringy moments I might come across by accident. In reflection, I would end up appreciating how different it was only 10 years ago.

While looking for some old files from one of my external hard drives, I found a few things surviving my early high school years and even a little of my middle school years. Unfortunately my computer had a serious error shortly after I graduated high school and, as a result, I lost many of the old files I had on my computer (and I ended up buying a Nintendo DS in hopes to cheer me up). It wasn't until just recently I found a letter I had written and sent across the United States to a stranger on the interweb.

To my luck, the original image link was still working and I re-uploaded it:


Click to enlarge, yo!


Wrote that letter on September 16, 2004 and was photographed by the recipient on October 08, 2004. That was almost 10 years ago. My grammar was pretty bad and I was pretty rAnDoM at times. Ugh... crikey. I remember underneath the t-shirt dollar was a stick figure man I drew being stuck between the tape, hence the "ahh!" speech bubble.
I also did stupid stuff like "^_^" and have for many years afterwards... ugh.
Compare that letter to this recent card I sent:


I wrote this a couple weeks ago.


Apparently my penmanship hasn't changed at all in 10 years... except maybe I'm sloppier.


Drew this on June 29, 2001. You know, before my balls dropped.


That was actually fan art of a fan character by a Yoshi artist I admired when I was in middle school, LunaYoshi, as part of her Renditions page (which she apparently stopped taking submissions for... and it made me sad). It was heavily referenced from an official Yoshi's Island image that I also managed to save (which was compressed poorly because dial-up was a thing in 2001). There was originally a copyright symbol next to my name, but I had to edit it out before uploading it because that's not how copyright works. I drew in MSPaint a lot before I acquired Paint Shop Pro 7 and discovered layers. It felt kinda weird time-traveling through old files and seeing all the crap I've done when I was younger. I know that my writing style has definitely improved in the sense that I don't talk like a literal 13-year-old trying to fit in with the interweb culture. Sometimes some things seem to never change... and quite frankly, I like it when people keep their old mannerisms. Not really a big fan of change, but regardless it's necessary and junk.

Crikey I'm old.

* * * * *


What's going on with me? THINGS! AND STUFF! NOT GONNA GET INTO IT!

I will, however, tell you that I'm getting better at making calzones though!


It's bigger than a Snorlax!


OMG IT'S SOOOOO GOOD!!! And no, Snorlax didn't have any. ALSO... I've got a bunch of stamps and so if anybody wants a letter, I'd love to send you one on the real. 2004 was a good time for mail. Talk to you hopefully by the end of the month! Maybe!

EDIT (07-01-10): Just learned that she came back to hide comments that she didn't like! Like this one!
Someone's afraid to accept it.

EDIT (09-04-10): Have been informed that she has returned. What's the point of leaving forever if you're only gonna come back? Psycho.

Oh, bravo ! Ton français est excellent, si jamais tu as besoin de parler un peu français, je serais ravie de discuter avec toi ! J'ai vu que tu étais italien, et j'aimerai beaucoup apprendre cette langue :)

Ah zut! C'était une plaisanterie. J'oublie changer mon pays, mais eh bien. En fait, je suis des États-Unis. Ma compréhension de la langue italien est seulement que "ravioli" "buongiorno" et des mots comme ça haha.

J'ai voudrais pratiquer avec vous de temps en temps! Merci!
