Happy Saturday my wonderful internet friends!
Lately, I have been very lost as to which direction I want to take in my life. Yes, I am only 19 years old and have only experienced one year of college, but I feel that this one year of college has confused me more about life than anything else. Starting off, I began college as an early ed major, but that idea vanished quickly after the fall semester. I understand that it is common for people to switch majors continuously, but I have never been wishy-washy and I just want to know what my plan is now! In this post, I will be writing a letter to my future 24 year old self (woah!). Hope you enjoy!
My Future Self,
Hey hot stuff! (JK) First things first, I hope you are doing well! I also hope that you are still surrounded by all of the amazing people that have lit up your life each and everyday during your first year of college. When you are looking back on this little letter, I hope that you can be proud of what has come out of you and your decisions, making sure to never, ever regret anything.
I’m curious to know what career path you have taken (please tell me that you have chosen by now!). Right now, the only jobs that sound appealing to me are owning my own boutique or writing for a living; did I guess right? With whatever career you (I) have chosen, I hope that it is making you happy, but also keeping you safe and stable.
24 year old Trina; is there a rock on your finger? I hope there would be as you have been with your high school sweetheart for 9 years now when you are reading this. I am curious to see how beautiful and wide this relationship will grow in the next five years. I hope that it blooms off of religion and shines like the sun, almost never having any rainy days. Who knows; maybe you may even have a little one running around now? I have always wanted to start around the age of 23/24. Have I fulfilled that wish?
Oh and our family! I hope that they are still all doing well. I’m sure that your older sister will have a few children by now; I bet they are beautiful! And Grandpa? I hope that where ever he is when you’re reading this is the place that makes him the happiest man in the world. If he is still going strong here with us, I hope that to this day you will still never take granted of the time that you have to spend with the man who raised you into the beautiful woman you are today.
My blog! How is it going Trina? I can only imagine that it continued to bloom and grow as I have always imagined and dreamed it would. Maybe I could even be a stay-at-home momma blogger by now? How awesome would that be (if only I could teleport right this second). I hope that you always treat this blog with pride and never let anything be shone except a true and honest love for blogging and everything that I share.
Something else that I hope to know is how my little chihuahua, Tilly, is doing. I am sure that she is still the queen bee. Do you remember first getting her for your 17th birthday? I still remember how much I changed during that time; my heart instantly softening and seeing a whole new version of this world that Tilly showed me. She has always taught me how to love unconditionally and with my whole heart. Tilly is by my side every second of everyday (except when I’m away at school). Shoot, she is just so amazing; take her to get some ice cream at Sonic right this second!
Trina, I hope that wherever you are today is a place that makes you truly happy because you have always worked so hard for this. You love everyone so much and have always made it a point to always be happy in life and never trip over the small things. You deserve to be happy with the one you love most and always have; DeVaun has always been the best to you as well! Don’t ever take him for granted as well! When you accidentally ran over his foot in 11th grade, he still loved you more than anything and never asked for anything in return. I just wish that I could know how life for us both will be in 2022.
By the way, are these words still cool that you used while you were 19?
: Turn up, salty, yeet, savage, low-key, done, or dead/dying (Yeah, they probably weren’t cool when you were using them either)
Love you so so so so much forever,
