Hello everyone.

Welcome back to the 30 days writing challenge (created by @themermaidwriter). Let's get started:

Day 11 - Write a letter to your 8 years old self

Dear Andreea,

How are you? It's me, you! From 2018! Crazy how time passes by haha. What time is it where you are? 2005? Wow, good times. Hey, listen. You're going to have a really cool vacation in Canada, and I have high hopes that this year I'm going to have the same amount of fun as I had when I was your age. And no, dummy, airplanes are extremely huge. Stop pretending that they're not a big deal, dude.

Anyway, got some things to tell you, kid. Your life is going to be just - I don't even know. You're gonna have some really amazing moments where you'll shine bright, and some moments where you'll wish you didn't exist. Sorry, it just happens. And 99% of the time it's not something you can control. You'll see what kinds of people are around you. And most of you will be very disappointing. Especially those very close to you.

Listen to me: you are perfect exactly as you are now. Don't ever lose that beautiful sense of imagination and creativity you have. You're so amazing and I absolutely love your smile, your laughter, your silly jokes. People won't understand you, unfortunately. They will see you as a weird person, but you're going to embrace this. You're so strong and I love you for that. I think I would be lost right now if I didn't have you as a base. You'll understand what I mean by this later. You're basically what saved me. And I couldn't be more thankful for that.

And you're super smart. Not "math" smart, but you're very adaptable and you can do great in any situation, as long as you're yourself. Do everything you want to do as a kid. Please be grateful for your friends. You'll need them a lot when you'll be older.

I made a lot of mistakes, but we're going to be alright. Please forgive me for everything dumb I'm going to do. And remember that anything that has absolutely nothing to do with you is not your fault.

See you soon,

Andre from 2018

P.S.: Keep your hair short. It's better and it suits you :)
