Letters Vs Emails

Christmas is coming.

   

Obviously, I'm in a Christmas mood~! For some reason, I feel like mailing my friends Christmas Cards. Maybe, it's my Christmas spirit talking or it's the Christmas mood? 

So, for the last few days, I've been searching for my friends addresses. I lost my contact book....That means, I have to text, facebook or call my friends up for their addresses.

I know that mailing is pretty lame. But you know what, I still think it's kinda great. Personally, I have never received any personal letters through the mail but once, I got a letter, confirming that I'm an organ donor. For some crazy reason, I was so HAPPY that I had a letter.

For me, I love handwritten letters. In high school, I often wrote letters for my friends during their birthdays. And when I get a handwritten letter from them, I feel so happy.


I know e-cards do exist. So why should I mail real cards? Mailing cost money. You have to buy the cards, get envelopes and stamps.

E-cards are FREE of charge and it's even better than mail. When you send it, you know that they received it instantly.
Mail takes time and sometimes, mails get lost. So yea. Why mail when you can do it via the internet?

I still prefer sending letters and real cards anyway. 

Why?

Handwritten letters and real cards shows the effort a person puts in.

Emails and e-cards don't have that same feeling that letters and real cards have.

Reading something a friend email you is sweet. But reading a real handwritten letter is even more touching and sweeter.

I know this is dying tradition but whatever.

I haven't mailed it yet. I have to buy the stamps. Anyhow, if you are my friend and you want me to mail you want. You can email me your address via my facebook, twitter or email.

Hopefully, I can mail it by next week.

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Growing up, closure and an interview.

I guess it's time I grow up. When high school is over, I have to grow up, be a mature and a responsible little young lady.
There's alot of things I have to learn.

To be honest, I'm a little afraid of leaving graduating from high school.
WHY?
I mean, I've been going to school for years. And the thought that it will finally end is a relief but also a little frightening.

But it's a new chapter in life. Everyone goes through it. So yea, I'm afraid but excited at the same time. There's so much to do after the graduating. College, driver licence & etc...

I guess I'll miss high school a little. Never thought it would end...but yea, it will soon enough.

Before I left high school, I need some closure. I mean, I made some friends & lost some friends. I do have some regrets. I was such an idiot and arrogant ass last time.
So yea, before high school end, I need to send some letters to the few people I hurt.



But I guess, that's high school. You make a hell lot of…
