A Letter To My High School Self

Graduation season is in full swing, and I’m so excited to say that I am going back to college! I’m going back to the University of Central Florida to earn a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing this coming fall. It is everything that I have secretly/not so secretly wanted, and I am so happy to have this feeling of obtaining so much at twenty-five. To honor my accomplishments and celebrate how far I’ve come, I thought I would take the time to write a letter to my high school self. Nothing played out according to the life plan I designed, and I have to say that it worked out for the best because I’m so happy with where I’m at today. Keep reading to learn what I would tell myself back then.

My Hometown Date to Maryland

Call me a love sick dork, but my boyfriend literally went out of town yesterday and I am this puppy waiting by the phone waiting for every update. There was no way that I would have been able to go though, because this trip had been planned for his graduation before we even knew each other. It has just been rescheduled to now due to the pandemic. That being said, before the pandemic hit, I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to have him bring me back to his hometown. In honor of Maryland Day, I am going to share those memories today.

4 Green Flags Found In My Boyfriend

So yesterday was National Boyfriend Day, and I’m so grateful to have the wonderful boyfriend that I do. I’m willing to talk about him all day long, and I can do it with a smile on my face. Today’s blog post is inspired by this week’s The LadyGang: Quickie, where Keltie, Jac, and Becca all talk about the green flags in their relationships. It’s definitely more positive than red flags, so I thought I would do my own take on the matter.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes also gives us some insight into how Snow thinks, what has influenced him, and possible causes of what led him to become the man we know him to be in The Hunger Games. After reading the book, I thought that it would be interesting to revisit the movies and see how his character compares to what I read, or how it might have evolved since then.

I know this is a bit more old-fashioned and a bit more time consuming than just having a digital photo frame and uploading all of your photos, but I feel like scrap booking gives me a chance to interact with old memories. It also gives me a chance to be a little more creative when I look at these things.
