20 Something Bloggers is turning 5! To celebrate they asked to write a letter to our selves five years ago.
Congratulations! You did it, graduating from high school and on your way to college. Don't worry to too much about it, you will meet lots of cool people that you will call friends. Getting to college is a big deal for you and even bigger for your family, but do it for you and no one else.
When you get to that campus don't be afraid to dive in and experience new things; the sooner the better. You will join various organizations and guest what else? Leave the state of California. You will go to Texas and Vegas. Oh Vegas, It will be the funniest. You will become a leader and try to take on the world but don't give up it can happen. Good grades are harder to obtain but all nighters will help with that.
There will be guys not from school but around and there will be some activity you will regret later. But you will get over it and move on. It will be best to avoid them all together.
The Next five years you will develop into a nice human being with good intentions and the right state of mind. You will be more involved with your community, completing more that 50 hours of community service a semester, becoming a little activist fighting for the cause.
Remember that there will be times when you feel you have to fit in with the crowd to be accepted. Do us both a favor and don't. In the end it won't be worth it and you will still be on the outside, feeling bad inside. And try to find a balance between fun and school.
Oh yeah, you still don't drive :)
